Palm Brinks is a major town in Dark Chronicle. It is located on the south end of the continent where the game takes place, and his home to the majority of the game's cast. It is Maximilian's hometown, and featured in the prologue when he visits Flotsam's circus, after which is it inaccessible as he is forced to flee and hide in the underground sewers. Later on he resurfaces and can explore part of it, and fully access the area in Chapter 2.
The people of Palm Brinks live happy carefree lives because the mayor has closed off the railroad, isolating the entire town. This effectively cuts them off from the outside world, keeping them ignorant to the changes that have occurred there.
There are two dungeons in Palms Brinks; the Underground Water Channel, which is explored in Chapter 1, and the bonus dungeon Zelmite Mine which is opened after completing the game and takes place in Chapter 8.
Palm Brinks consists of roughly five major areas. There is the central road where Cedric's workshop and other shops are located, such as Morton's Sundries, Polly's Bakery, and Milane's Weapon Shop. On one end is the raised drawbridge, and on the other the police station with sheriff Blinkhorn. Past the station, on the left side when facing it, is a small plaza with a coffee shop, bar, and the train station. On the other side is the town hall, and a larger square where the circus was initially located, as well as where Fishing Contests are held in Chapter 4.
Once the drawbridge is lowered you can access the other half of the town, including the church with priest Bruno. The path left of the church leads past the Zelmite Mine entrance, and the large fishing lake where Dr. Dell resides in his clinic. The path to the right leads past Morton's and Parn's houses, up to Gerald's, Max's father, mansion.
