The Black Cat is a location in Dragon's Dogma.

Overview

The Black Cat is run by Mountebank and deals in rare goods that cannot be found in normal shops. Montebank owns the shop, and will also offer his opinion on the state of the Dukedom and Duke from time to time.

Several services and goods are offered here: firstly Montebank carries a limited range of goods, including Ferrystone, and later Portcrystals; he also sells work tools, such as trowel or hoe which are useful in the upgrading of Category:Rusted Weapons.

Additionally he sells copies of some rare weapons including Golden Weapons, though such items may also need to have been obtained through a quest first before the copies become available. Also sold here are special suits of armor and clothing (generally copies of DLC items).

The Black Cat also provides a counterfeiting service producing forgerys of most items for a fee. Mundane items and scripts can be perfectly forged, whilst items with magickal powers cannot, or produce replicas similar only in appearance, not function. For details see : Forgery.

Finally the shop is the place to go when an important quest item has been lost in some way - most misplaced quest items if lost will turn up here in one form or another.

The sign above The Black Cat reads "counterfeit shop" in the Gransys alphabet.

The Black Cat Sign

There is a largish poster within the Black Cat that appears to have a text written in the Gransys alphabet. The first line is "capcom", and the second begins "dragonsdogma" - the rest of the text is in romanized Japanese.
