Trouble Center

The Trouble Center is located on the east end of town. Enter and read the posted troubles. Accept troubles, solve them and get rewards. I listed the troubles in the order I solved them. First they're mixed up a bit, then they move straight down the line. I strongly suggest not taking on some of the troubles until you've discovered the warp pipes in the underworld…or you'll be wasting a lot of time.
