You CAN forge at night, but theres 2 tricks to it: 1)Use Rising Sun. Makesure you have alot os Solar Nuts. After you use it IN THE SMITH'S SHOP, talk to him(and select Forge) directly after is explodes. It gives you 4 bars for 30 seconds, which means if you know what your forging, you'll have 4 seconds on the clock when it despells. Hopefully by then, you have the bar inbetween the bars.
2)Use a sunny clog. Theres a 50% chance it will either make 2 bars of sol, or it will only alow 2 bars through the Solar Gauge. If you unlucky, You can reset the game(A+B+Sel+Start)(if you saved) If you havnt saved, then go to Dream Avanue(Open after you get Solar Gun) theres alot of room with Chests in there. I came out with 4 Sunny Clogs.
To get 500-900 SOL, go to the Remains, kill the Golems(and Goul) there, if you kill them all, go about 2-3 rooms away and come back to find them respawned. Kill them again. Hammers and Short Swords sell for 60SOL, while Maces sell for 70SOL. Gradius' sell for 50 SOL.It's time consuming, but worth it when you have a Sol Sword/Darkness Sword(2 of the 4 strongest swords) in your hands.It also helps when paying off Doomy, you shop-a-holics . Also, watch for Golem +/ Goul +s. There 5x harder than your avarage Undead/blockhead. There also faster. I'd advise avoiding them untill your strong enough. Id advise Lv.60 with stats evened out as much as they can be, because there strong, fast, and barly take damage. For you weakling WANTING a Basterd Sword, I'd use Warewolf, because id does more damage. Basterds sell for 90SOL, also very usefull if you have your trying to make the Sol Sword!

Here is what you do. You go to doomy or use the dark loans card. Then get just 1 sol it will be only 9 more sol to repay thats easy isn't it just that 1 little piece of sol should make her wait another three days.;)
