Patcher's Place is a settlement featured in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, and is the first "main" town visited in the game once the game's main quest begins. Patcher's Place is so named for the general store owned by Patcher, a refugee from the original Vale, which serves up just about everything fellow refugees from Vale might need to survive. It is the closest thing to a "new Vale", as the other refugees have constructed a small settlement around the store. It is the location of Forge, the first Mars Djinni available to the player.


Patcher's Place was founded in the days following the Golden Sun event, and thus is populated almost entirely by former residents of Vale. The large general store supplies nearly every need of a traveler, with an inn, and Vendor shops. It's other main attraction is the Psynergy Training Grounds, located in the northern part of town. The Training Grounds serve both as a theme park-style retelling of the exploits of the Warriors of Vale and as a practice site for young Adepts. The Psynergy Training Grounds are a popular attraction, and are required in order to pass the Konpa Gate.

Immediately prior to the start of Dark DawnIsaac and Matthew make a trip to Patcher's Place for supplies. Following the start of Matthew, Tyrell, and Karis's quest for a Mountain Roc feather, Isaac sends the group to Patcher's Place as a first stop, so they can gear up and get information from Patcher. The initial meeting with Patcher does not go well, as Patcher recognizes Tyrell, who had nearly burned down the store with his Mars Psynergy in a fit of rage once, and nearly does it again out of frustration. Patcher would later apologize for his initial behavior. The Adepts would then complete the Psynergy Training Grounds before leaving the town. After exploring the Konpa Ruins, the Adepts are cut off from returning, as the southern entrance to the ruins is blocked.


The village's inn service is provided for 6 coins per room.
