Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

Baharata is an ornate village, with fine stonework constituting the buildings and several trees peppering the town. The church is the largest building, ensconced with tall ramparts and surrounded by a large garden. Being the largest town in the eastern hemisphere, several merchants have opened shop. The wide river coursing across the southern end of town is considered to be holy by the residents, and many people from all walks of life sojourn to purify themselves in its waters.

Black pepper[edit]

Baharta is known for having a supply of black pepper. The Hero visits Baharata in hopes of retrieving some Black Pepper to give to the king of Portoga in exchange for their own ship. However, upon arrival the party finds the shop is closed as a result of the kidnapping Tanaya, the granddaughter of the pepper merchant.

In order to reopen the shop, the Hero must venture into the Kidnapper's Cave and free the shopkeeper's granddaughter from Robbin' 'Ood. However, Tanaya's fiancee, Gopal Gupta, cannot stand idly by and allow perfect strangers to rescue his beloved and charges forth ahead of the Hero's party on his own. He ends up a prisoner of of the bandits as well, but is freed along with Tanaya.

Afterwords, the Hero is given some black pepper free of charge, and life returns to normal in the village.
