Dry Dry Outpost
From the Super Mario Wiki
Dry Dry Outpost is a small town at the east end of Dry Dry Desert in Paper Mario. Little Mousers and Dryites live in the town. Moustafa is the leader here. Mario and his partners come to this town in Chapter 2. After some information gathering (specifically, buying a Dried Shroom and a Dusty Hammer in order in the shop), they are allowed to see the town leader, Moustafa, and receives the Pulse Stone from him. The Pulse Stone then allows them to proceed further in Dry Dry Desert.
There is a shop and a Toad House in the outpost. Merlee also live here, who can spell, for a fee, a cast on Mario which will occasionally gives him several advantages in battles. Later in the game, Mario needs to go back here to complete several sidequests such as letter delivery, Koopa Koot's favors, and Master Poet's favor. There is a shortcut warp pipe in the Toad Town Tunnels, which provides a faster way to go to Dry Dry Outpost. The in-game map description reads, "It's a small desert town that has many inhabitants for its size. You'll find a Toad House and a shop here."
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Lumpy mentioned that he visited Dry Dry Outpost during his quest to strike oil. Mario can learn about Lumpy's visit by listening to "Part 3: A Helping Hand", the third tale in his adventure.
