Amherst is one of the three towns on Maple Island. Amherst is considered to be Maple Island's biggest town, followed by Southperry. The town holds true to the general scenery of the island, with the grassy ground and mushroom-shaped houses. Be careful, as Maple Island's strongest monsters reside right outside the town. JapanMS removed this as also leaving only SouthPerry.
Amherst is also home to the only weapon shop on the whole island; many also travel here for quests.
