Miral and Garok's Workshop is located south of Noyel. With Miral, you can trade in Small Medals for a number of (often rare) items including scrolls, weapons, diaries that spawn pets, and more. You can also use small medals here to increase the size of your cart. In Elona+ you can also get a few services from Garokk.

Medals are uncommon. It is advised that one saves medals for the commensurately rare items that cannot be obtained any other way.

The things you can buy:

You can also increase your cart space, with the cost depending on current cart limit. Each upgrade increases your cart space by 10s but subsequent upgrades increases in price by one medal each time (the first upgrade costs 1 medal, the second cost 2 medals, etc.).

In Elona+ it costs bronze coins to upgrade the cart instead of small medals, though the text still says small medal. Upgrades are priced in increments of 10 platinum coins instead of 1 small medal. Currently, a bug prevents the actual cost from increasing past 75 coins; though Miral's dialogue will continue to show the correct rate, only 75 will be deducted.

Note: the Shield Tonfa, Sage's Helm, and Diablo cannot be reacquired through small medals; a second purchase will instead net you a randomly-generated artifact shield, helm, or sword, respectively.
