  Kross (only one build each): Kitchen, Lab, Forge, Bedroom
  Kross (multi-build): Barn

- Lute: Can purchase Handy upgrades/items without Kross’s upgrades
      but you then need Kross’s upgrades to purchase other items
      from Lute (Lute will say your kitchen/lab/forge/bedroom/house
      is too small).

II.   Monster Barn

Barn (Kross):

- Very 1st build is the barn building plus room 1
- Each room holds 10 monsters
- Each barn expansion expands the inside and outside
  of the barn sides all on one flat surface
  - Total of 7 rooms (10 monsters each room/1 floor)

Kross: "The Barn can get as tall as 3 floors, 
        with 1, 3, and 7 rooms
        as you move up."

-- This is a mistranslation
   - It should have been:
     - The barn can be expanded 3 times (3 total builds)
       - 1st build (barn building and 1 room total)
       - 2nd build (3 rooms total - 2 more rooms)
       - 3rd build (7 rooms total - 4 more rooms)

       - For a total of 7 rooms in your barn 
         - Each room holds 10 monsters each
         - Equals 70 monsters total

After you build the barn to 1 floor/7 rooms = 70 monsters
- If you try to order more barn expansions
  - Option to order more barn expansions not greyed out
    - Choose: I'd like to expand my house
    - Then Choose: I'd like to expand my barn
  - Kross says:
    What do you think of your barn now?
  - You:
    It's Awesome.
  - Kross:
    Just so you know ...
    It's not good to use more wood than is necessary,
    all right?
  - (End Conversation)
  - Meaning though vague: Barn can't be extented further

Section Two: Starting Tips & Helpful Info

- This section is provided to help you better understand and
  manage the start of the game thus providing the ability to 
  gain knowledge to get the wood and the money needed to build
  a great house and fully expanded monster barn

- Additional tips and helpful info is also provided to give you
  the knowledge for you and your monsters to be at your full
  production peak

- This is not intended to be a full walkthrough or all-knowing
  Tip Guide but it will definitely help you along your way :)

Starting Walkthrough

- Press 2 button, then "map" for locations

- Start people moving in by talking to those in town 
  (shops will start to open) & get tools (Errands - see list below)

- Fill in any extra time with Filler Tasks (see list below)

- Start collecting monsters to help you with your farm and give
  you products (Beginning Monsters - see list below)

- You can stay up very late to get extra work done but be in your
  house just before 1am or you will get exhaughted or get a cold

- This starting schedule will allow you to cover all the major
  to do lists/events/items/etc plus let you get extra done as
  well. It has been tested for time and money -- both of which
  you will have some extra of so you can do a little something
  on the side if you want

-- Spring 1 (Holiday)
   – You begin the game and collapse outside the St. Poli Church
     and sleep the night there

-- Spring 2 (Mon)
   - Automatically you wake, talk to Stella, and then meet Mist
     - Choose "and you are?" (all previous people don't remember you)
     - Choose "Mist?!" (all previous people remember you)
     - Either choice is fine - just gives slightly different dialogs
       through certain parts in the game

   – Mist gives you a cheap hoe, a cheap water can, and 1 bag of
     turnip seeds and you start with 500 G

   – Clear your field as much as possible (ship even the weeds)
     - About 26 weeds (10 G)/1 grass (10 G)/2 bamboo shoots (110 G) each

   - Fill your watering can at the farm well & talk to Mist by the well
     - Auto learn return spell (press A, choose "return")

   – Try to go into the clock tower (triggers Kanno to come Spring 7th)

   – Water the sparkly sprout by the clock tower (grows climbing vine
     to Whale Island and you'll automatically climb it)

   - Talk to the "voice" and check out the stone tablet in the center

   - Don't go in the cave yet, just climb right back down the vine

   – Go talk to everyone to start the villagers arriving and shops opening
     (errands) (see below)

   - Till, then Plant, then water two 3X3 areas of turnips 
     - Turnip seeds gotten from Mist and Erik (1 bag each)
     - Your bookshelf inside your house shows you how to till/plant/etc
     - If you are on your farm at 5pm and outside then you will see
       Rosetta's Shipping Box Cutscene
     - Continue tilling more squares
       - You can do about 45 squares/don't pass out
       - Keep them in 3X3 areas as much as possible
       - Plan your field for 1/3 crops, 1/3 grass, and 1/3 free
       - You can walk on your crops even when they are fully grown

   - Save/then Sleep
     - End table near bed
       - Write in Journal 
         - Option 1: Don't Save (changed mind)
         - Option 2: Save (Save the day to this point)
     - Bed
       - Option 1: I still have things to do (changed mind/not sleep)
       - Option 2: I should go to sleep (go to sleep/end day)

-- Spring 3 (Tues)

   - Wake up at 6am, hear knock on door, go out, see cutscene, get mail

   - Read all your mail inside on your table (press A at pink letter)

   - Notice your calendar (on post by window/bed - Press A at it)

   - Notice your toolbox by the bookshelf (store items here/no food)

   - Keep watering all your turnips (and grass/fodder) each day

   - Go say hi to the villagers again

   - Go to Rita's Room, talk a lot, get a free cook book
     - Cook book: Quick-step Cooking

   - The library (Rune Archives) has a few books you can read
     - Runes and Runeys
     - Happy Farm
     - Ask a Ninja
     - Beautiful Letter
     - Home Improvement Catalog
     - Family Medicine
     - Book of Healthy Dieting

   - At noon, Go to Erik's farm (Seed Store)

   - Buy at least 4 bags of grass seeds (30 G) each, at least 1 bag of
     strawberry seed (200 G) each, and 4 more turnip seeds (10 G) each
     - Money comes from items gathered off field on Spring 2nd
     - You could buy the 4 turnip seeds from Danny if you like

   - Talk to Mist at your farm until she talks about dreams
     - Tonight you will have your first dream

   – Work on your farm some more, plant four 3X3 area of grass on your
     farm (pre-grow grass for future monsters) and one 3X3 area of
     strawberries, and four more 3x3 area of turnips
     - Depending on your field and stamina, you probably will need to
       start this today and finish it tomorrow

-- Spring 4 (Wed)

   - Wake at 6am, gather from field, catch Anette/mail about 6:40am,
     Ship, water crops, continue farm work

   – See Erik who gives you a cheap sickle (9am)
     - Plowing 40 field squares is not linked to Erik's sickle giving
     - Did not go see Stella or learn Mist was sick - just talked to
       Erik in his field on this day and got the sickle - might have
       to do more with shipping a certain amount of weeds

   - Talk to Stella a lot to get the cheap axe (9:30am)
     - St.Poli Church Open 9-6pm
     - She mentions Mist is sick
     - Plowing 40 field squares is not linked to Stella's axe giving
       - Talked to her constantly up until this day that she gave me
         the axe (right after she said Mist is sick but before I saw
         Mist sick in bed)
   – Mist gets sick (visit her at home/she is in bed) 
     - This also allows Selphy/Lara to come to town

   – Explore Whale Island (Cave Depths) to find Melody
     – Melody gives you a cheap hammer 
     - This triggers the bath house/spa
     - Don't fight the monsters at this point
       - Just run in a "straight" path to the right
       - You can just run past the monsters and advoid them
       - Run into the cave and you will be in the Cave Depths
       - Cutscene will trigger

   - Go to the Melody's new bath house and take a bath
     - Open 3pm - midnight
     - Cost 10 G each bath/only one per day
     - Fills up all HP and all RP

   - Continue to clear your field and plant the seeds you bought
     - With the axe and hammer you can now clear all the small
       stones and branches
     - Chop at least 10 branches for the future barn

-- Spring 5 (Thurs)

   - Wake at 6am, go outside, auto pass out, Lara Cutscene

   - You wake up at the church, more cutscene, auto booted out
     - You will be standing in front of the church
     - It will still be 6am/Spring 5th so no day/time lost
     - Church is closed so use return spell back to farm

   - Gather until 6:40, meet Anette, talk, get mail
     - Letter from Erik: he wants a turnip
     - Make sure to save him one tomorrow
     - Also save a bamboo shoot (Selphy/bamboo rice) later

   - Talk to Mist until she mentions a Spring dungeon
     - It won't open up yet but this helps it to progress

   - Keep working on your field and planting all your bought seeds
     from yesterday

   - Take a break and visit the bath house/spa at 3pm
     - You will meet Nolan for the first time

   - Say hi to the villagers
     - Ganesha will give you a forge recipe book
       - Recipe book: Farm Companion
     - Buy 1 turnip seed from Danny

   - Take the hammer and go hammer the cherry trees
     - Mountain Pass and Lake (take boat)
     - Cherries/raw (150 G each)
     - Ship them to have money for Lute
       - Later it is better to make jam out of them

   - Continue working on the farm (clearing/planting/etc)

-- Spring 6 (Fri)

   - Wake at 6am, go outside, see Selphy on ground,
     water her (lol), see Selphy Cutscene, talk to Lara
     and Selphy
     - Go outside the infirmary/hospital/church door
     - It will still be 6am/Spring 6th so you don't lose any time
     - Church is closed so use return spell to go to your farm

   - Gather from the farm field until 6:40am, get mail, talk
     - Give a turnip to Anette to give to Erik (delivery)

   - First planted turnips are ready - harvest them
     - Seeds say 4 days to harvest but your runeys are not
       prospering yet so it takes longer to grow
     - Ship only all raw turnips by 5 pm
     - Keep the rest of the turnips for cooking tomorrow

   - Water and work in field until 10:30am and then run over and
     talk to Mist in front of her house until she asks you to 
     cut the weeds in her front field
     - Take the sickle and cut the weeds/very tall grass
       - You only have to cut in front of the stairs to get
         access or you can cut down all the grass. It is up to
         you and how you want it to look. You don't get the grass.
     - Ta Da! There are underground stairs under the tall grass
     - You now have access to the Green Ruins!
     - Talk to Mist again

   - Work in field until 3pm and then go take a bath at the spa

   - Go say Hi to all the villagers
     - Buy 2 more Turnip seeds from Danny
     - Talk to Erik who gives you Formula C and buy 2 grass
       seeds from him
     - Formula C speeds up growth by 3 days but also sells for
       480 G (so you might want to sell it - your choice)

   - Make sure everything you want to ship is in the shipping
     box before 5pm (be on farm to watch Rosette pick up items)
     - You should get about 5-6,000 G tomorrow (buy from Lute)

   - Plant turnip and grass seeds you bought today and work in
     field until your HP/RP is near gone

   - You could go into Green Ruins but you aren't very strong yet
     - If you have time and some stamina just go in the begining
       room but watch you don't pass out - and get in before 1am
     - You can clear the two 3x3 fields in the 1st room, till, and
       plant (turnip/4 days) them. There is water inside too and
       there are no monsters in the first room. There is also a
       crate to break for an item.
     - Remember that you have to water the crops in here for 4 days
     - Then you can use the runes (one on each 3x3 area) for extra
       RP. You don't need to water the 3x3 areas once they are
       fully grown with a rune on them (unless you pick a/some
       turnips - if you do then you have to repeat the process)
     - Later you can replace the turnips with strawberries so that
       you can pick strawberries every other day and get runes
       every other day (multi-harvest fruit forever because never
       ruins in a Spring dungeon/no end of season) or just not
       pick the strawberries and have two runes here every day to
       boost RP everyday - your choice
     - You can also reset the dungeon by exiting (upstairs)
       and re-entering the dungeon to get a new crate with a new
       item. You can do this a few times a day before the crate
       regenerates but stays empty.

         time to get them rebalanced and it will also make your
         crops take way too long to mature/some usually die as well
       - You should always keep the map sections green or higher
       - Yellow means prosperity and helps crops grow faster and
         monsters be happier as well as other good benefits

HP and RP Bars

- The RP bar is used up before the HP bar starts going down if you
  are using tools
- The HP bar can go down before the RP bar if you are getting
  attacked by monsters
- To fill up your RP bar you will want to eat something that
  replenishes the RP status
- To fill up your HP bar you will want to eat something that
  replenishes the HP status
- You can check recipes and foods for what HP and RP replenishing
  stats they have by clicking on them in your rucksack/inventory
  or by looking at the recipes in a cook book you own
- To see how much HP and RP a tool or weapon uses just click
  on it in your inventory or check a forge recipe, etc
- If your HP bar reaches 0 (even if you still have some RP left)
  then you will collapse and wake up the next day in the hospital/church
  - You lose a day/wake at 10am/have only 1/2 your HP and RP bars filled
- If you collapse too often or stay up late (past 1am) too often then
  you will get an exhausted status and then a cold (even if you are
  forced to bed by 6am)
- You can be healed by Lara for 100 G each time (talk to her at desk)
- Colds do not wear off and Lara loses friendship each time you collapse

- Nice HP/RP restoring Recipe:

  - Get 2 (level 1 rice) (in treasure boxes/Whale Island)

  - Cook it in the steamer (get in green area to get level 2 mochi)
    - Don't need recipe book but you probably have the recipe
      - Press A at steamer
      - Press (-) button to make a custom recipe
      - Ignore shown recipe if not the mochi recipe
      - Just select 2 rices and cook at the steamer

  - Take the level 2 Mochi over to the oven
    - Don't need recipe book but you probably have the recipe
      - Press A at oven
      - Press (-) button to make a custom recipe
      - Ignore shown recipe if not the Fried Mochi recipe
    - Cook the Mochi (get it in the green to get level 3 Fried Mochi)

  - Level 3 Mochi sells for 476 G each
  - Level 3 Mochi gives 60 HP and 200 RP

- You can get an endless supply of rice and silver in the Green Ruins
  (B1F) if you have a silver hammer
  - Enter/Cut vine door/go left past red squirrel/cut vine door to left/
    go past red ants/cut vine door to left/follow path to tan rocks/
    break tan rocks with a silver hammer/mine big rocks (find silver
    here most times)/open treasure chest (always contains rice)/press
    2 button/choose return/enter dungeon again and repeat as many
    times as you want

- You can also find an endless supply of flour in the Green Ruins once
  you get the silver hammer
  - Enter/walk up to portal (green shining/touch it)/go into door directly
    opposite the boss door/open the big treasure box/break the tan rocks/
    open the two treasure boxes in here/one of these two always has flour
    in it/press 2 button/choose return/enter dungeon again and repeat as
    many times as you want 

- If you don't have a silver hammer then you can still find rice and flour
  randomly in one of the treasure chests on Whale Island - Fin

Silver Hammer, Ores, & Little Crystals

- All ores are found by hitting dark grey rocks with any hammer
- The more upgraded the hammer then the better the ore and ore level
- Ores are used to upgrade your forge skill, upgrade your tools, and
  in recipes
- Scrap Iron is very useful to up your forge skill when repeatedly
  used to upgrade the same tool


- There is silver in Green Ruins but you won't be able to access it
  because it is blocked by tan rocks
- To break tan rocks you need a silver hammer
- To solve this problem you will need to get one silver ore from the
  Lava Ruins and make a silver hammer with it
- Silver is found on the 3rd floor (B3F) of Lava Ruins in the rocks
  by the scorpions (but rarely) so you may have to reset the dungeon
  repeatedly (go in and out) until you get a silver ore. Silver can
  also be dropped from Golems (big robots) on B2F-B4F but they are
  strong compared to you at this time so the rocks by the scorpions
  are the best bet for silver.

- Now that you have a silver hammer you can break the tan rocks in
  the Green Ruins. Go to the first floor near the beginning and use
  the silver hammer to break the tan rocks on the first floor (B1F).

- Now use your silver hammer on the rocks inside to get 1 silver ore
  and 3 scrap iron. There is also a treasure box that consistantly
  gives rice. You can reset the dungeon by going out and coming back
  in again. Do this repeatedly to now get all the silver, scrap iron,
  and rice you want.

Other Ores:

- These are the typical places to find certain ores
- If you upgrade your hammer then you can find better ores sooner
  - Example: Gold hammer can get Gold from even Green Ruins
  - Remember you can use the special attack (Hold B, press A)

Scrap Iron - All dungeons
Iron - Whale Island (Cave Surface/Depths/Fin), Green Ruins
Copper - Green Ruins 2F and below, Lava Ruins
Silver - Green Ruins (as explained above), Lava Ruins 2F and below
Gold - Lava Ruins 5F and below, Snow Ruins
Platnium - Snow Ruins, Whale Island/all towers

Little Crystals:

- These are not the magic crystals that Cinnamon wants
- These are needed to upgrade to the top tools
- These are very rarely found by mining (hitting rocks) 
- Also get these by finding them in chests
  - Better success finding in chests than mining
  - Save your game
    - Go to Whale Island and go into any tower that has doors
      with small rune stone pedestals by them
    - Put a rune stone into the pedestal
    - Open all the chests
    - If you didn't find a little crystal (levels 1-4)
      then reset and repeat process until you do

Free Fruit/Ground Hammer Attack

- You can use a hammer that has ground attack to knock down all the
  fruit from the trees at once. If you use the special attack 
  (A & B - if available) with the same hammer then sometimes you
  will get a higher level fruit to drop.

- And, of course, the fruit trees will have different fruit depending
  on each season. So if you are needing the cherries then hammer the
  trees/ground during Spring.

  - Cherries/Spring
  - Oranges/Summer
  - Chestnuts/Fall
  - Apples/Winter

- You can also get some of all the fruit if you win the Quiz Contest
  Festival in Winter

- You can knock down one fruit at a time with a regular hammer

- Fruit trees are found at the Mountain Path (across from observatory)
  and at Lake Poli

Pickled Turnips are your Friends

- Pickled turnips are great for recovery & exploring dungeons 
  (Raw 7 HP/0 RP --Pickled 10 HP/75 RP)
- They also ship well (Turnip 210 G each/Pickled Turnip 235 G each)
- Turnips are a single grow crop (4 days) but will ship for more 
  total profit than strawberries
- Cooking lots of Pickled Turnips will up your cooking level quickly
  in the beginning
- Need to upgrade to Handy Kitchen (no tools) to make Pickled Turnip
  (Lute/holiday/at Public Square)

- Later in the game after you get monsters harvesting or you are
  leveling up your crops then you may want to switch to a multiple
  harvest crop like strawberries because it will cut down on the
  work you have to do yourself

- The shipping bin also has large storage (120 slots).

Finally, a game that has decent storage ... of course, I'm a gatherer so if
any other game developer/programmer is reading this then you are more than
welcome to include even more storage, lol.

Don't forget to press the 2 button to sort by types while in each inventory.

Teleport Home

- Press 2 button
- choose return (choosing Map will pull up an map of all areas)
- This teleports you immediately to your door (in around farm or town)
  or to the dungeon entrance if you were in a dungeon

-Also, if you are poisoned and about to die 
– use the teleport to get back to your house (2 teleports if in a dungeon)
- Run into your house because time stops in there
- Start walking back & forth until the poison wears off
- Now you won’t die even though you got poisoned

Plant on the 30th

- You can plant your crops for the next season on the 30th of the
  previous month (plant Summer crops on the 30th of the Spring, etc)

- This can save you some time but make sure that you don't have your
  previous crops maturing on that day or it might not be worth it to
  lose the mature crops (so if you had Spring Crops maturing on the
  30th of Spring then you might not want to sow seeds on the 30th)

- Don't plant anything in your farm field from Fall 30th - Winter 30th
  because nothing grows in winter in your farm field

- Use all the dungeons to store/grow your crops/flowers/etc

- You can also grow grass in the dungeons to supply your monsters some
  feed (or store up for winter/or buy expensive feed). You can put the
  fodder from your rucksack/inventory into the outside barn window to
  the left of the front door. You will have to cut/water the grass
  yourself if you grow grass in the dungeons. Grass does not grow
  back each year on farm field and does not grow in winter on farm


- Buy fodder/grass seeds from Erik
- Plant them in your farm field (doesn’t grow in winter) 
  or in dungeons (grows all year)
- Monsters that harvest fodder/grass will harvest from your farm field and
  not dungeon fields
- Fodder/grass in dungeons (seeds/growing grass) need water but once full
  grown with a rune then no more watering unless you cut some
- Fodder/grass seeds on your farm needs watering every day 
  (helps to get a watering monster)
- All grown and re-growing grass on your farm needs watered every day
- Fodder/grass stages: seeds, half-height, full-height 
  (still short but can now be harvested)
- If you cut fodder/grass in the half-height stage then your fodder/grass
  will be DESTROYED and go back to tilled ground and it will not reproduce 
  fodder anymore
- If you cut fodder/grass in the full-height stage then your fodder/grass
  will regrow to full-height every 2 days (Grass harvesting monsters will
  cut grass properly without losing squares and they also cut all the weeds
  off your field – very beneficial)
- Grass/fodder does not grow on your farm field in winter
- Grass/fodder does not automatically regrow on your farm field after
  winter even if you had full grown grass in Fall/Autumn
- Grass/Fodder will not "fit" in the seed maker

How much grass do I need for a full barn for one year?

- There are several ways or plans to growing grass for
  one year for 70 monsters (full barn):

  - Grow 3 seasons on farm field with extra grown for Winter
  - Grow 3 seasons on farm field and grow in dungeons for Winter
  - Buy all your fodder from Erik if you are super rich

  - The best plan is Plan 3 below but I have left the other
    Plans listed in case you want to try them or you prefer
    them instead

    - Plan 3 requires you to plant 23 bags of grass seed in
      Spring on your farm field (Costs 690 G/Erik)
    - This gives you enough feed for 70 monsters for one
      whole year including Winter
    - The 23 bags gives you enough fodder to also store some
      over the winter to feed your animals during the beginning
      of Spring when you need to replant the grass and let it
      grow again
    - You need to also have the 23 bags of grass seed bought
      or in storage before Spring 29th (There is a festival
      on Winter 30th and on Spring 1st)

Short Answer: 
- 8,400 fodder per year/23 bags of grass seed (grown 3 months)

Long but detailed Answer:
- Here are the Plans, Figures, and Info:

  - Your entire farm field has 405 squares or 45 (3x3) areas
    - Entire farm field will only support 45 bags of seeds
      - Grass grows every other day if watered every day
      - Each grass seed bag grows 9 squares
      - Each square produces 15 fodder each month 
          = 135 fodder per month per bag

  - Spring 1 is a festival so make sure you have enough
    bags of grass seed already bought and stored so that
    you can plant all the seeds on Spring 1

  - Grass seed takes 4 days to grow (harvested on 5th day)
    - If map areas are not green then it is longer (runeys)
    - 280 fodder (to cover 4 days/stored from last year)

  - 1 bag of grass seed cost 30 G

  - 1 bundle of fodder from Erik costs 300 G
    - 280 bought fodder = 84,000 G

  - Every animal eats 1 feed per day
  - Every egg eats 1 feed per day
  - 30 days to a season
  - 4 seasons a year
  - 70 monsters max in a full size barn (7 rooms X 10)

30 X 4 = 120     (total days in 1 year/4 months)
120 X 70 = 8,400 (total feed needed for 1 year for 70 monsters)

*Spring/Summer/Fall (Autumn):

- You only need to figure for 1 month for Spring/Summer/Fall
  because the grass regrows in these seasons (seeds/farm)

Plan 1 (3 months on farm/1 month in dungeon):

- Plant to sustain 70 monsters for 1 month if you plan to
  grow grass in dungeons in the winter
  - Monsters cut grass on farm field during Spring/Summer/Fall
  - You cut grass in dungeons in the winter every other day

- Buy 16 bags of grass seed = 480 G (1 month/regrow 2 months)
  - 2,100 / 135 = 16 bags

  - Buy 6 more bags of grass seed = 180 G (Winter/dungeons)
    - 700 / 135 = 6 bags
  - OR plant 2 bags and cut grass in dungeon all year for
       winter fodder (water every day/cut every other day)

- Plus buy 1 bag = 30 G (Storage/start of next Spring)
  - 280 needed for storage = 30 G 
  - Plant on farm or in dungeons (grow/water/cut for 3 seasons)

Plan 2 (Buy fodder, expensive!):

- Buy fodder from Erik = 2,520,000 G
  - 8,400 fodder (Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter)

Plan 3 (3 months on farm/growing extra & storing for winter):

- Buy 16 bags of grass seed = 480 G (1 month/regrow 2 months)
  - 2,100 / 135 = 16 bags (2,160 fodder produced per month)

- Plus 6 bags - you need 700 extra feed each month (Spring/Summer/Fall)
  to store and use for Winter
  - Buy 6 more bags of grass seed = 180 G (extra for Winter)
    - 700 / 135 = 6 bags (810 fodder produced)

- Plus buy 1 bag - 280 for storage = 30 G (Storage/start of next Spring)
    - 60 + 110 = 170 (extra fodder from above)
    - 9 x 15 x 3 = 135 (1 bag/15 squares per mo/3 months)
    - Total 305 fodder for storage
      - For yearly grass growing period at the start of each Spring
        because grass dies over each winter

Total for Plan 3:

- Buy 23 bags of grass seed = 690 G (Spring/Summer/Fall/extra Winter)
  - 23 bags/each producing 135 fodder per month X 3 months = 8,400 fodder
  - 8,400 fodder total or 23 (3x3 areas)

- This method/plan works the best
  - It is 1/2 of your field grown in grass
  - It feeds a full barn of monsters for 4 months plus 280 extra
    fodder for the growing of grass period at the beginning of the next
    Spring each year
    - Store 280 fodder for beginning of Spring while grass grows
    - Store 22 bags of grass seed for the upcoming Spring

*Winter only:

30 X 70 = 2,100 (total feed needed for 1 month)

- Buy 16 bags of grass seed = 480 G (1 month/regrow 2 months)
  - 2,100 / 135 = 16 bags (2,160 fodder produced per month)
  - Must grow in dungeons if grown in Winter
  - Must water every day and cut every other day yourself

- Buy fodder from Erik = 630,000 G
  - 2,100 fodder

Harvester & Brush uses no HP/RP

- Using the brush/pet glove and the harvester on monsters in the barn
  does not use any RP/HP no matter how many monsters you have
- Using the brush to tame monsters in the dungeons doesn't use any RP/HP
  but make sure your character has enough HP/RP to continue brushing the
  monster while it attacks you
- Using the harvester outside to gather runeys does not use any HP/RP
  but time will continue to pass
  - Press the 1 button to look up
  - Runeys gather around you when you look up
  - This makes collecting runeys faster even though time still passes
    when you look up

Letters & Replying

- Anette comes with the mail between 6:40 am - 7 am (not holidays)
- You can check your mailbox and get letters and also meet Anette
  to get your letters but you may miss a few if you are only checking
  your mail box or just getting them from Anette. Be sure to always
  check all your letters on the table in your house to make sure you
  have received, replied, and read them all.
- Usually if a blue letter is sticking out of your mail box then it
  means that you need to check your mail
- Sometimes the blue letter won't disappear no matter how many times
  you check your mail at your mail box and at your table. Don't let
  this drive you nuts. It usually only means that a letter is in the
  process of being delivered or sent. Also you will get letters from
  unknown people and you need to talk to the person (like Anette
  when she is off work).

- Pink Letter
  - This is an Information Letter
  - You can't reply to it

- Blue Letter
  - This is a Request Letter
  - You need to give the requested item to Anette
  - Catch her delivering mail and just before she puts your mail in the box

- Green Letter
  - This is a Reply Letter
  - Just choose an option/answer 
  - You don't have to give it to Anette
  - It is delivered automatically

- Pink Letter: 
  - This is an Announcement Letter
  - You can't reply to it

- There is possibly a special letter but unsure if it is in the US version
  - If so, then you would need a secret word to put in to get a special item
  - If so, this is a rare letter

Looking Up (1 Button)

Looking up lets you:

- See if Whale Island is at the end of the climbing vines 
  - One at clock tower/non-holidays and one at the small island/holidays
- Gather more runeys around you for faster gathering 
  - Time still passes but still quicker
- Predict the next day’s weather (if done towards the end of the day)
- Observe constellations at the observatory field 
  - Talk to girls after seeing a “shape” - one of them will gain FP/LP

- If you see the Turnip Constellation and "something falls" then run
  back to your house and go inside to see what happened (turnips)

- Talk to Cinnamon to hear about a constellations
  - Talk to her more to hear about all the constellations


Monster Farm Work Info:

- You have to tame a monster by brushing it in a dungeon 
  - Name it & send it to the barn

- You can tame a monster even if the barn is full but it is a waste
  because you can’t keep it

- You can check how many monsters are in your barn by bringing up the
  monster menu or by checking the monster book/ledger just after you enter
  the barn (also has tons of details on each monster)

- You can release any monsters you wish by talking to them in the barn

- You have to pet the monsters in your barn (and feed them/see fodder)
  each day to raise their friendship

- Monsters will work on the farm for you (if a farm worker type) after
  you raise their hearts to at least 1

- Monsters start work the day after you assign them

- Monsters will do their job slowly at first (be prepared to help them
  at first) until they get very proficient
  - Raise their friendship for faster results

- You may only assign one farm type monster per farm task 
  (you can keep more in the barn but only assign one per task at a time).
  They get fast fairly quickly (about 1 to 2 weeks to do job quickly).
- Even if you go to bed early all monsters will still do their jobs
  (if assigned) and you don't have to re-assign each one if a new season

- Monsters that help on the farm can get all types of the same item. For
  example, a monster that cuts wood will cut everything from branches to
  stumps, and a monster that clears stone will clear stones and all sizes
  of boulders. Their skill does not depend on your tools or what skill/
  level you are. So use your farm working monsters to your advantage at
  the start when you don't have the skill or tools to clear stumps and

- All monsters (even product monsters, farm type monsters, and transport
  monsters) will go with you to fight in the dungeons (farm monsters won’t
  go if they have been assigned farm work) (product and transport monsters
  will go and still produce products on schedule)

- If your monster "dies" while fighting/traveling with you then the monster
  will automatically be transported back to the barn and will lose some
  friendship with you but it will not actually die

- Monsters can travel with you everywhere (outside, town, dungeons, etc).
  If you go into a building then the monster will not go in with you but
  it will be waiting for you outside the building door. If you enter the
  barn with the monster then it will be transported back to its usual
  place in the barn. Taking monsters outside, to town, and into dungeons
  will raise their friendship.

- You can ride any "transport" monster as long as it is not doing an
  assigned job. If it is doing an assigned job then you will have to
  unassign it (or reassign another monster that does the same job thus
  freeing up the previous monster) before you can ride it. To find out
  if a monster is a transport monster just take it outside and choose
  the "Get on it" option. If it is a transport/mount monster then you
  can get on it. If it is not a transport monster than it will say that
  you can not ride it.

- To find out if a monster produces any products then use the harvester
  on the monster (may take one week to be able to harvest the product).
  If it gives you a product then keep harvesting the product and you
  may find that it gives you several different products.

- You can breed any tamed monster with a high friendship level if you give
  it a Rune Stone (lays an egg/see Candy for Rune Stones) and the new
  monster will have better stats and higher friendship than the parent
  monster (rinse and repeat for even stronger monsters)

- You can switch any monster around in any room in the barn
  - You have to use the menu from the barn book (not just the -/+ menu)
    - Go into the barn and press A at the book in the entrance room
  - This helps to sort monsters in groups by rooms or however you want
    to organize them

Breeding Monsters:

- Make any Rune Stone (10 runeys to Candy - Tree, Stone, Water, Grass)
- Give it to a monster with at least 1 friendship (choose make)
- An egg will automatically be produced and in the hay bundle in the barn 
  (have a space in the barn for each egg you want to grow)
- You can talk to the egg daily but you can’t brush it
- The egg will hatch in about 10 days (may vary) so it is better to get
  3 friendship before breeding
- The new monster will have 1 more friendship and better stats then its
  parent (at time of breeding)
- Keep your runey map sections green or above to be able to raise
  monster friendship better and make sure that there is always fodder
  in the barn at all times or you may lose friendships with monsters
- You can now talk, brush, and interact with the new monster as normal
- You can immediately breed the new monster again with a rune stone to
  get even stronger monsters
- Repeat this as much as you wish

Other Monster Questions (Answers by Goldhorizon):

Multiple Monsters and Work Quality:

Q: Does having 2 of the same farm type make both work better?

A: No, having more of a farm worker type monster does not make the
monster better at its job.
You can only assign one farm worker type monster to a certain task
(grass, water, etc).

The only real reason to have more than say 1 grass harvester is
that you may like two different kinds of monsters that both do
grass harvesting (like 1 Ghost and 1 Scorpion).

Each monster seems to have a different gathering animation
(squirrels bounce, etc) than other monsters even if they both do
the same task. So you may want to keep both of them and alternate
them just for the "looks" of it. 

In the case of the squirrels (red one in Green Ruins and purple one
in Lava Ruins), you may just like having both of them in the barn
for their different looks even though they do the same thing.


One Monster per Task plus Monster Types:

Q: Can I only assign one monster to each task?

A: Yes, you can only assign one monster per task.

However, monsters usually learn to be very quick at their tasks
within one or two weeks.

Every now and then you will get a monster that doesn't do well
no matter how much time goes by so in that case just release it
and get another one.

You will so wish you had a bigger barn even after you upgrade to
the biggest barn because there are so many different monsters 
(each one has different animations in the barn, during fighting,
and working your farm field).

Plus there are the essential monsters you need for cooking products

... and the monsters you need for farm work (crop harvest/Wild plant
harvest/grass cutting/watering/wood cutting/stone clearing/etc)

... and the monsters you need for transport (who could resist the
wolves/buffaloo/elephants/unicorns/etc). Your transport/fighting monster
will save your hide!

... and the monsters that produce seasonal seeds 
(Spring/Green Ruins - Summer/Lava Ruins - Autumn/Snow Ruins). Yes, 
that is the actual names of the monsters. Yes, they drop actual seeds
that you can plant in your fields (Spring -- any spring seeds, etc). 
You will want to keep several of these in your barn to save on seed 
costs not to mention if they drop the costly flower seeds!

... and the various monsters that produce other goodies like 
jewels/jewelry/ores/mushroom/medicinal herbs/rare scales/etc 
(Big Muck/Tricky Muck/Monster Box/Gobble Box/Sealy/etc)

Well, you see where this is going. Yes, you will run out of room
in your barn!

... oh! and I forgot breeding monsters. You will need a place for
all those eggs!

(Funny or Creepy? Did you know that if you talk to a monster egg
on several sides that the egg will keep turning towards you?)


Monster Friendship/Breeding:

Q: How much friendship is needed to breed a monster with a rune stone?

A: I have given all types of rune stones to several monsters that have
only 1 friendship and they always accept it. You can't give it until
the monster has 1 friendship because it "won't listen to you".

So far, the best time to breed a monster is when it has 3 friendship.
You can raise a monster fairly soon to 3 friendships and then it slows
down and takes longer to get more friendship. Plus, most eggs that I
have hatched (talking to them daily/can't brush them) have taken about
10 days to hatch.

Watch out for winter
- No grass grows in your farm field
- So grow grass in dungeons (any)
- or stock up on grass (1 per day per monster/eggs also need one per day)
- or buy fodder (very expensive)

Also, your runeys will impact how fast their friendship with you grows
- Keep feed in your barn at all times
- Brush and talk to them daily (talk to eggs daily)
- Keep map sections green or higher (runeys)

It is like having your own animated pokemon herd, lol :)


Production Monsters Show "No Work":

Q: Why does my production monster show “no work” in its page details?

A: I haven't got the Big Muck (Big Mushroom) to cut grass because as
far as I have seen there is no way to assign him the task. It doesn't
come up as an option when I talk to him. I have also taken him outside
to see if I can ride him since he is so big (but you can't ride him).

For some reason monsters that produce products (anything from eggs to
jewels to fish scales) will show the "no work". But they will still
produce products if they are producers.

Just ignore the no work state if it is a production monster. You can
still gather whatever it lists that it produces. 

Use the harvester on the monster you're keeping in the barn at least
once a week to get the product it produces. Sometimes you will get
surprised by an item you harvest from it that you didn't know it produced. 

So far, the Big Muck has produced the following for me: Mushrooms,
Various Jewels (Diamond, Sapphire, Emerald, Amethyst, Aquamarine), 
and Medicinal herbs.


Breeding - Stats & Work Quality:

Q & A:

1. Does breeding a monster only increase its fighting stats? Or does
   it give it a higher ability (per point of friendship) to perform

- Breeding ups fighting stats depending on the rune stone you use 
  and also gives 1 more friendship than the parent per breeding

- How quickly it earns friendship and therefore performs chores is
  variable depending on how well your runeys are growing
  (map areas green or above is better)

- Bred with water rune stone: HP up 12%
- Bred with tree rune stone:  Magic up 12%
- Bred with rock rune stone:  Defense up 12%
- Bred with grass rune stone: Attack up 12% 

2. As a separate issue to 1, do monsters that are bred produce higher
   quality collected goods, like wool or eggs? 

- Raising friendship on any producer will up the level of the product 

- It seems that the friendship level is directly related to the level
  and how many of the same item is produced.

  - Example: 

    - A level 2 Spring flower monster consistently gives me
      2 bags of the same seeds and same level when it has 2 friendship
      - It still gives me various spring seeds each harvesting

    - A level 2 Buffamoo monster consistently gives me level 2 milk
      each harvesting

- As the friendship on the various production monsters go up then
  the level given and the amount given raise equal to the friendship
  level they have (level 3 = level 3 milk/level 3 = 3 seed bags or jewels)

Note that all the seed monsters (Spring/Summer/Autumn) may give turnip
   seeds at friendship level 1 and then seeds for the proper season they
   represent at friendship level 2 and above

3. Do higher level monsters with the same ability (ie: harvester from
   level 1 of the green mine vs harvester from bottom level of lava
   ruins) just fight better? Or do they also perform chores better? 

- So far it does seem that the higher dungeon monsters do fight
- This is because they have higher fighting stats
- Friendship is what allows a monster to perform chores better
  with higher friendship equaling faster chores done
  - Your runey map colors affect monster friendship growth (or loss)
    rates so keep all map areas green or higher
- Occasionally (for all monsters) it seems you can get a monster
  that learns/performs slowly no matter what his job or where he
  was captured 
  - Rarely happens, so just release these and get another one

4. Do you know if stats effect chores? That is, to be specific: 
   do bred monsters have a higher chore potential than monsters
   you've captured? 

- Bred monsters just allow you to raise the stats of monsters faster
  but both bred and captured monsters will perform the same at the
  same stat levels
- Also, the higher the friendship the better/higher quality products can
  be harvested from them

5. Or does the bred improvement in stats only make them better at

- Basically,
  - Higher stats = better fighting
  - Higher friendship = better chore performance

- Monsters learn to do their chores in steps just like how your tools
  are upgraded (1 square, 1x3 row, 2x3 rows, 3x3 rows, etc)
  - So up your monster's friendship levels to up their chore performance
  - Your current level of tools does not matter to the monsters
  - They learn on their own regardless of how leveled up your tools are

Making Custom Recipes

- Usually once you get a recipe book (cook, lab, forge) then the
  recipe shows up with the list of specified ingredients
- Sometimes you will want to experiment on your own with recipe

- To do this, just ignore the shown recipe
  - Press the (-) button to choose different ingredients
  - Press the (+) button to make the recipe

- Recipe books are great for showing you recipes but you do not
  have to have/know a recipe to experiment and make one you did
  not already have listed in a cook book you own
- The more ingredient slots that you have available (Kross & Lute
  upgrades & equipment) then the better the recipes you can make
  and experiment with
- Cooking slots generally increase (2, 4, 6 slots) as you upgrade
  your kitchen size and equipment
- Your cooking skill level has to be fairly close to the level that
  the recipe requires or it will say that your skill level is not
  high enough
- Save before cooking. If you fail, then you will lose your

- Remember that Selphy (Library/Rune Archives) has a sale on cook
  books on Tuesdays

  - This can include older books you did not buy before she
    changed her book collections and new books that are not
    sold with her present selection

Leveling Up Crops

- Use greenifier to level up your crops
  - Till, then seed, then apply greenifier, grow crop
  - One greenifier only does one square and not a 3X3 area
  - Apply only 1 greenifier to one square per time
    (don't apply more than 1 greenifier to a square at a time)
  - Greenifier will up the crop in that one square by 1 level
  - After the crop in that one square is grown then you can put
    the crop in the seed maker to turn the crop into a bag of 
    seeds (put in crop level 2 get seed bag level 2)
  - Now plant the level 2 seeds, apply greenifier on them,
    grow the crop and produce a level 3 crop, put the level 3
    crop in the seed maker to produce level 3 seed bad, just
    keep doing this to up your crop levels
  - Remember to plant seeds in the proper seasons with plenty
    of time to fully grow them to maturity.
  - Proper Runey management can allow crops to mature early
    OR if you are not managing your Runeys in all the sections
    of the map then your crops may grow slow or even die.
  - Greenifier is sold by Lara at St. Poli Church for 9,200 G each
    (one only does one square not a 3X3 area)
  - The seed maker is sold by Lute (peddler) at the Public Square
    on holidays for 5,000 G
  - You can make Greenifier yourself once you get a fully upgraded
    lab, supplies, and advanced recipe book but it will take
    a lab skill of 99 and the ingredients are more expensive
    than if you just bought the greenifier from Lara
  - When you put greenifier on a seeded square then the square/soil
    will turn green
  - Putting greenifier on the seeds (watered or unwatered) multiple
    times (referred to as stacking) will not result in higher grown
    crop levels
  - You can only up the crop level by 1 level per fully grown crop


Formula C
Earth Crystal
Water Crystal
Fish Fossil
Fairy Dust
Demon Blood

Laboratory Skill Level: 99
Level 1 Greenifier
Sells for 1,840 G each 
(Wow, Laura is making a huge profit! lol)

Greenifier ups one square of crop one level
(plant seeds, apply greenifier, grow crops, put it in the seed maker
for the next level of seeds -- rinse and repeat)

Buy the Ultimate Lab Book from Selphy (10,000 G) for the recipe.

The Snow Ruins are referred to as the Winter Dungeon but it only 
  grows Fall crops now
  - There is a whole story behind why it is a Winter dungeon that 
    grows Fall crops but I don't want to spoil it for anyone yet
  - Tip: hit the colored cords to explode the ice machines and
    the cannons and unfreeze some doors

You can also tell what season crops each dungeon supports by noting
    the wild colored grasses that naturally grow in the small
    scattered fields in each dungeon 
    - yellow, orange, red = Spring
    - Purple, blue = Summer
    - White, black = Winter 
      - or Fall/Autumn in Snow Ruins

Also, the whitish/grey shallow "rocks" are really sand piles (use hoe)
  - Some are in Green Ruins blocking treasure boxes
  - Some are in Lava Ruins if front of big boulders

Whale Island Shortcuts

  unlock as you advance through the game's storyline
- These books are on the actual library shelves and are not any
  of the books you buy from Selphy

    Making my way through an overgrown field of young plants, I went deeper
    into the area called 'The Green Ruins'.  Once a research facility for
    utilizing the power of Runes, it is now overrun with monsters.

  - Page 3:

    It's warm and spring-like. In fact, I saw springtime plants thriving in
    every crevice of the ruins.  I finally came to a set of stairs, but it
    seems some one came before me and opened the door that leads inside.

    I continued down the stairs and move forward. When I got to the 3rd
    basement floor I… (to be continued)

    Covered in sweat, I pressed on ahead towards the ruins that once used
    to house a facility devoted to researching the effects of heat on Runes.
    As expected, it's hot here like summer.

  - Page 3:

    I found a bomb on a seesaw on the 3rd basement floor. I slammed the
    opposite side of the seesaw with a hammer and successfully cast it into
    a pile of rubble. I'll use the bomb to remove that pile.

  - Page 4: 

    To detonate the bomb, I slashed at it. A loud noise engulfed the entire
    ... I don't remember anything after that. I have lost my memory.

    As the name suggests, these ruins are covered in snow, but the climate
    is rather mild like autumn.

  - Page 3:

    I'm sure the climate was much colder when they were carrying out low
    temperature research on Runes, but this is much nicer for me.

  - Page 4:

    At the entrance of these ruins are slopes and a frozen door. I destroyed
    nearby fridges (just cut the cord!) to melt the ice and move forward. My
    adventure was going well.

  - Page 5:

    However, due to an accident, I had no choice but to give up my
    exploration. I cannot disclose the details here, ... but it was
    definitely not because I got hungry.

    At the very moment I was about to draw my last breath, I saw trees
    upon trees, so laden with fruit, it looked as though the branches
    would break. 

  - Page 3:

    I tried everything to get my eager hands on the fruits, from climbing
    to throwing rocks.  My desperation gave me strength.

    However, not a single fruit would budge, not even once.

    Alas! If only I had a hammer with me, I could have eaten one!  I
    would have been able to survive long enough to see the next fruit
    bearing season…

Rosetta/Mail Route Fun

For some fun and laughs:

- Follow Rosetta around on her mail route and talk to her right after
  she delivers each "letter" 
- Following/talking along the way also increases her FP

- Hope you can keep up ... maybe you could use a wolf :)

Dancing Warriors

War Metal Description: Line up 48 Warrior Metals and they will dance

- Can’t line them up on ground because they disappear
- Don’t dance if you stack them in rucksack/inventory
- Separated them one by one and lined them up in rucksack 
  – nothing happened
- I will save them in storage until me or someone maybe figures it out

... or maybe this is just a reference to something ...

Foliage Festival (Flower Festival):

- Get flowers from girls/people
- You can get flowers from one girl and give them to another girl
- Two flowers you get will be Toy Herb and Moon Drop
  - These two flowers are used in the wedding Bouquet
- Uzuki gives you Cherry Grass!
  - Seed maker accepts Cherry Grass as a flower
  - So take the Cherry Grass and put it in the seed maker to get
    one bag of Cherry Grass
  - You can ship these for over 6,000 G but it is better to plant
    them in a dungeon and use greenifier on them for more profit

Beach Day (Watermelon Smashing):

- Before the watermelon smashing begins, press A at the bath house to
  see cutscenes but only do it once per girl (some like it, some don’t)
  – Most every girl does not like it if you do it twice
- Follow what the liar says to do to smash the watermelon
  (ignore the “right” instructions)
- Successfully smashing the watermelon gives all present a small 
  FP/LP boost
- Bring up the Relations menu (+ button) and click on a girl you saw
  at the beach, now press 1 button to see them in a bathing suit.
- If you get good enough at crafting then you can also make swim suits
  and give them to the girls

- Some people report following the "correct" instructions and being able
  to smash the watermelon so it may have some randomness to it.
- Following the instructions may work but if it doesn't then just follow
  the liar's instructions

Harvest Festival:

- Everyone wears pumpkin heads (but Mist/turnip head)
- The first Fall you're not supposed to pass out vegetables.
- The tradition starts the 2nd Fall because Mist states that she is
  going to get everyone to pass out vegetables the next year to start
  the tradition again
- If you listen to everyone else you will notice that they comment on
  NOT having the tradition in the town yet
- So you should get a different reaction in the 2nd Fall :)

Hotpot Convention:

Winter 19th

- Bring an ingredient for the pot
- Talk to Eunice and give her your ingredient
- Putting in a level 6 trout got great results

Constellations & Info

- This is a work in progress/testing & has not been fully verified yet

- Talk to Cinnamon and become good friends to have her tell you
  about the different constellations (Gifts to her: Black Fish/Whale
  Island Fin, also Pale Chub, basically any fish cooked or raw)

- Talk to Cinnamon outside and in the season of the constellation
  it appears in

- Books/info on the constellations will be added to the Library
  (Rune Archives) after Cinnamon tells you about them
  - Selphy needs to have cleaned up the library before you can
    access all the library books 
    - At 4 LP she thinks about cleaning up library
    - At about 5 1/2 LP (& 9-10 FP) she finally cleans up the library
    - But at 6 LP she destroys it again :(

- You can't see the constellation in the sky until Cinnamon tells
  you about it (You can see star outlines but it won't trace it)

- The observatory is located to the left of the 2 fruit trees along
  the mountain path
  - View all constellations here
  - It is just a round open field surrounded by cliffs
  - Watch constellations starting at dark (6pm – 3 am)
  - Usually you need to watch the night sky for at least 30 minutes
    game time
  - Sometimes it helps to switch your position or direction within
    the circular field
  - If you look at the sun too much then you will hurt your eyes, lol

- Talk to the girl related to the constellation you just saw to get
  a LP boost

  - "When the elephant gazes at the stars,
     water shall erupt from the trunk."
- Go to the observatory (note/clue)
  - "From a solitary teardrop from the eye,
     erupts a spring, leaving behind a speck
     of light."
- Go search the lake (diamond/letter/clue)
  - "The light always returns. It cycles over
     and over and arrives back to where it
     originates. The things precious to you
     are where they are supposed to be. At
     your feet."
- Go to the front of Bianca's house 
  - You find a buried wedding ring
- Bianca appears and explains the lost
  lover's wedding ring
- Try to give Bianca the wedding ring but you
  both decide to put it back in case the lover's
  come back to find it 
- Then you try to give Bianca the diamond but she
  thinks it is ordinary and says for you to keep it
- You will then keep the level 10 diamond

Melody Bath Event

- Melody will be in the women's bath but don't try to go in there
- Instead go take a bath in the men's side
- Her bath event will play out

The Pink Elephant

For clarification on the elephant event - here's the process:

- Explore Whale Island dungeon to get baby elephant cutscene
  - Explore from Whale Island - Cave Surface/Cave Depths to
    Whale Island - Fin
- After cutscene you will see the baby elephant in your barn
  by the book/ledger
- You can not interact with it
- In Summer (summer 1st year if barn built before summer)
  Tabitha and Bianca come to town
- Tabatha will write you a letter stating she would like to
  come see your monster/barn
- Reply "yes" to the letter
- Now on the 10th, 11th, 14th, 26th, and 27th (other days may
  also work) of summer (9 am - 10 am), go into Bianca's house
  while she is inside and you will trigger the rest 
  - You don't have to have any LP with Bianca &/or Tabatha
  - You can press A directly at 9am at Bianca's house door
    to trigger the elephant scene
- Now Bianca will take care of the pink elephant
  - She names the elephant Francoise

  (Tabatha comes near your barn but not into it --
  you must instead go into Bianca's House to get the cutscene)


- Tabatha and Bianca will both leave after each Summer if you
  don’t complete the baby elephant process (see above)

- Getting Tabatha to 6 hearts allows Minerva to come to town

Iris (white) Storyline Progression

- The start of the storyline

  - See the starting walkthrough Spring 1 - Spring 12
  - See the section called Opening Dungeons

- To get the Whale Island Fin gate open you only have to talk
  to Iris (white) and give her 1 gift (can use Moon Drop Flower)
  - You do not have to have any certain LP or FP with her
  - I have tested this in multiple game files

Do the following things:

- Go to Whale Island - Fin
- See 1st white Iris cutscene (watering flowers/7pm)
- Talk to Rosetta about Moon Drop flowers (and buy 1 bag)
- Plant the Moon Drop flowers in the field by white Iris tower
- Water flowers until a rune appears 
  - Tested and you have to get rune to appear 
  - Don't pick any flowers until after 2nd white Iris cutscene
- See 2nd white Iris cutscene (7pm)
  - Now you can go inside white Iris' tower
  - You can pick all the flowers now if you want 
  - The Fin gate still will not open
- Get 2 dreams by this point (usually before 10pm)
- Talk to Mist while she is watering her seed by her house
- Get the 3rd dream (usually after 10pm)
- See 3rd white Iris cutscene (7pm/man comes out of tower/Gelwein)
- Follow him through the Fin gates by 9pm same day
- Now Fin gates stay open all the time

The Whale Island Tail & Rune Progression

- The middle events of the storyline

- Go through the Whale Island Fin gate
- Go left and break the boulder with the silver hammer
  to give you a shortcut from Whale Island Cave to Fin
- Go back to Fin gate (as if you just went through it)
- Continue going right up and down the poison levels and beyond
  until you get a cutscene and see the Whale Island Tail Tree
  - There will be a huge rune in the middle/top of the tree
- Go discuss this with Kanno
- Return to the Whale Island Tail Tree get another cutscene
  - The huge rune will be diminishing

     - Plant the white rose seed 3x3 plot anywhere you
       want to plant it
       - It doesn't have to be at the Iris tower in the
       - I planted it in a dungeon and it worked fine
         and was safer than in my field with Brodik
         around causing mischief
     - Water the white rose seeds until they are grown
       (you will see a rune on them if they are in a
       dungeon) and then you also don't have to water them
     - Do not pick ANY of the white roses
     - Wait 2-3 days and the white roses will have turned

6. Give the Wedding Bouquet to girl on a date
   - Date days: 13 Spring, 19 Summer, 19 Fall, 24 Winter
   - In my game files, I could never get the girl to
     accept a date until she was at 10 LP but maybe some
     girl's accept at 8 LP
   - If at 8 LP then bring the girl's favorite dish for
     the meal
   - If at 10 LP then the girl will bring the meal
   - Don't be late for the date and bring the wedding
     bouquet to give her
   - At an automatic point in the game you will get a
     cutscene saying that you just have to confess your
     love. After the cutscene then give her the bouquet.
   - If you don't get the cutscene to confess your love
     then you don't have all the requirements met yet
     - Usually this is because all her related events
       aren't finished yet or she is not at the right
       heart level

- The marriage is very well done and indepth with the whole town
  in attendance and a long cutscene
  ... but this is not the end of the game :)

- Depending on the girl chosen, marriage can be accomplished
  before or after the main base storyline is completed
  - Credits roll but game can be played forever if you wish

Child Progression/Stages

Right after you marry you can buy the children's bed from Lute
   - Costs 20,000 G
   - It is a crib that goes upstairs in your bedroom

1st Season: 30 days after marriage your wife will become pregnant
   - You get to choose whether you want a girl, a boy, or random
   - You have to buy the children's bed for your wife to get pregnant
   - You can now buy the Toy Box for 5,000 G from Lute

2nd-3rd Seasons: 60 days after pregnancy your baby will be born
   - 30 days after pregnancy your baby will be kicking/growing inside
     and no unfortunately your wife will not ever look pregnant
   - 60 days after pregnancy your baby will be born
     - You can name your child but there is no friendship ability yet

4th Season: 30 days after birth your child will learn to crawl
   - She/he will call you Papa
   - She/he will now crawl around on the floor
   - You can now raise the friendship of your child
     - Talk to your child each day
   - You can't give any items to your child yet

5th-6th Seasons: 60 days after crawling your child is now "fully grown"

   - You can talk to your child and give her/him items to keep
     your relationship up with your child
   - Your child can now follow you around including in town
   - Your child can not follow you into dungeons

6 seasons = 1 1/2 years from marriage to a fully grown child
            (or 180 days)

- There are three looks for the girl stage (baby, crawling, walking)
  and there are three looks for the boy stage (baby, crawling, walking)

- The girl's look (baby, crawling walking) is different looking than the
  boy's look (baby, crawling, walking)

- All bachelorettes will have the same looking baby/toddler/child (girl/boy)
  so there are no unique children based on who you marry

Runey Checker Map

- Also known as the Runey Distribution Diagram
- Request a Rune Gift from Candy and the next day there will be a
  “Runey Checker Map” Desk
- Has large bubble glass on top and is located in the clock tower 
- Now you don’t have to track down Candy every time you want to access
  the Runey population map

- You can also check the chair by the bookshelf in the same room for
  a note that will let you get Candy's runey/miracle list. This is
  handy if Candy is hard to find.

Runeys/Runes/Rune Stones

- Ok, I won't cover everything on Runeys but here is a few details 
  (too many details may spoil your natural discovery of the whole
  Runeys, Runes, and Rune Stones)


- Runeys appear in outside area (not in dungeons) and they are
  "groups of gathered spirits" -- these are the floaty lights
  and characters you see in the air outside.

- You need to keep runeys in all map areas in balance. Usually
  you can keep up with this by gathering/releasing them on a 
  bi-weekly or season schedule.

- They start off balanced when you start your game but left unchecked
  the will unbalance themselves and your crops/grass will start to
  take longer to grow until finally your crops/grass will die or not
  grow at all.

- The 4 types of Runeys are:

-- Grass Runey: 
   - Prefer open areas
   - Don't eat other runeys 
   - If produced great in number then they may suddenly decrease in numbers

-- Tree Runey: 
   - Prefer forests and natural nature
   - Eat grass runeys
   - Easily multiply in numbers

-- Rock Runeys: 
   - Prefer areas around buildings
   - Eat tree runeys
   - Don't multiply in large numbers

-- Water Runeys: 
   - Prefer areas around water
   - Eat rock runeys
   - Don't multiply in large numbers

- Each area/section of the map has a runey preference so keep this in
  mind when you are balancing your runeys. 

  The runey map preferences are:

  - Lake Poli
    - Water runeys

  - Mountain Road
    - Tree runeys

  - Public Square
    - Rock runeys

  - Trampoli Business District
    - Rock runeys

  - Trampoli South District
    - Grass runeys

  - Trampoli Church District
    - Tree runeys

  - Homestead
    - No preference
    - Your homestead will always produce runeys
    - You still need to keep them balanced

  - Road to the Beach
    - Grass runeys

  - Beach
    - Water runeys

- Getting the Harvester (gathers runeys):

- Get Kanro (Clock Tower/Grandfather) onto the island. He will come about
  3-5 days after you can access the clock tower (water the sparkly plant
  sprout near the clock tower)
- Befriend and talk to Kanro until he complains about sending for his
  granddaughters so they can serve him food. The granddaughters are
  Cinnamon (gives you fishing pole/talk to her outside while she is
  fishing) and Candy (gives you harvester). The harvester can gather
  and release Runeys and also can milk buffamoos, harvest wool from
  woolys, and act as a basket for egg and honey gathering.

- You can access a "runey balance map" when you talk to Candy. This map
  shows map areas/sections, how many/types of runeys are in each section
  and how balanced they are.
- It is your job to keep all 4 types of runeys balanced in the map sections.
  If you get all 4 types balanced and multipling in harmony then it is known
  as a "prosperity state" and you will see benefits like faster crop growth
  &/or more prosperious crops. If there is a red or black section on the map
  then you need to immediately re-balance the runey population. You want your
  map sections to be green. They can still be green and be tailored to what
  affect you want the runeys to produce for the section (like more
  grass/green runeys will make it rain more in that section, etc).

- There is a lot more to Runeys but that is the gist of it. It is better
  to play around with gathering and releasing them in different
  sections/areas and that way you will learn and understand quicker
  than just reading about it. Be careful to not unbalance areas by just
  harvesting any runeys you come across. Think about how to balance runeys.
  Also, an area can still remain somewhat balanced (green on the map) even
  if you don't have every type of runey in that section. Mostly, you are
  trying to achieve the prosperity state in each section. Your actions
  also can produce runeys (like growing crops, watering, etc).

- Storing Runeys:

- Runeys appear in your rucksack after you harvest them with the
  - Keep some of each handy to replenish any areas especially in Winter
- Remember that you can also harvest runeys and store them in storage 
  - On shelves, etc
- Runeys can also be shipped 
  - Not profitable/only 2 G each
- Runeys can also be given to Candy to make Rune Stones 
  - 4 types/can store on shelves
- Runeys can also be given to Candy to make Runey Miracles 
  - Useful events
- Runeys can also be given as gifts to people

Easier Runey Maintenance:

I tested 3 scenarios in my game files:

- All sections on map extinct (referred to as canceling runeys)
- Homestead prosperous and all other sections extinct
- Balanced sections with Homestead having 10 of each runey type
  more than other sections

Here's the results:

- All areas extinct: meant that a lot of my crops started dieing in
  my fields and in all the dungeon areas 
  - I sucked up all runeys each day

- All areas extinct except my homestead (homestead having 60-60-60-59)
  meant the same thing: a lot of my crops dieing in my fields and in
  all the dungeon areas, no fruit on trees, etc 
  - I sucked up all runeys each day and left my homestead totally alone
  - All areas were black except homestead which was yellow 

- Balanced sections with Homestead having 10 of each runey type more
  than other sections: Worked very well once set up with prosperous
  crops and benefits (20 per section would be better if you can spare it)
  - Your barn monsters will gain friendship faster if your map sections
    are green and above


The sections of the map are not separate in terms of bonuses or crop
growth. You have to add the state of all sections on the entire map
to determine the bonuses or lack of bonuses in any given section. If
your farm section is prospering but enough other areas are extinct
then your farmland and dungeon areas crops will die. All sections
work as a whole no matter what state they are.

I think the runey system is so variant because there are a variety of
things affecting their populations: how much or how little crops you grow,
where you grow or don't grow crops, the variant weather, what fields you
leave with wood/stone/wild plants/weeds, what fields you clear including
in the dungeons, if you pick all the fruit off the trees on a constant
basis or if you don't, your use of the runey miracles like weather weeks,
your affect on how and how many runeys you suck up or don't suck up, etc.
All these things will affect how many or how little runeys are or are not
produced as well as your extinct/prosperity statuses.

In the end, why not just use the runey system to your advantage since you
end up managing thier extinction anyway. 


How to set up a balanced sections:

The following has worked for me (even in winter):

*If all sections are extinct except your homestead:

- Suck up all runeys in all sections of the map

- Release 20 of each runey type on your homestead

- Release 10 of each runey type on all other sections of the map

- Use the Runey Distribution Machine (clock tower) to see the runey count
  in each section

- Gather any runeys that rise over 10 of each type off every section and
  over 20 of each type in homestead and use them to get all areas to at
  least 10 of each type of runey (20 on homestead)

- If any type of runey falls below 10 (or 20 on homestead) then release
  more of that type of runey to balance to 10 of each type of runey

- Once your homestead has 20 of each type and all other sections have 10
  of each type then all your map sections will be green (no crops will
  die in farm or dungeons, you will have fruit on all trees, and your
  farm monsters will not lose hearts - unless not fed)

- Now use the same process as above (skimming off runeys) to get your
  homestead to 40 runeys of each type and all other sections to 30 of
  each type of runey 
  - This is the average good balance to keep or raise it higher for
    better benefits
- You can go as higher in each area as you want as long as you keep a
  balance of each runey type 
  - Keeping the farm 10 runeys of each type higher than other areas
    is best

*If you don't have runeys extinct in the sections of your map:

- Then just maintain your sections (once every week or two) by just
  skimming off the extra runeys so that there is the same amount of
  runeys in each section (20-20-20-20 / 30-30-30-30-30 / etc) plus
  the 10 of each type higher in your homestead.

Basically, this is just a lot of words for a simple skimming off of runeys
to keep them all in a variety balance in every map section. 

- You only have to skim off runeys once or twice a month, takes a lot less
  time and it gives you lots of runeys to use for rune stones and runey

- Plus you now get all the bonuses you want without extinct areas, dieing
  crops, and unhappy animals

- No matter what is affecting the runey decreasing or production is no
  longer important because the extra is now skimmed off to a balance once
  or twice a month

-- Wins all the way around!

- With the above system I described, you are regularly skimming off the
  extra runeys or filling in any that drop only once or twice a month so:

  - you don't have to worry about having less of any one type of runey in
    any section

  - you don't have to worry about the natural weather or creating weather
    for runey miracles

- I was easily able to maintain runey balances and they did not flucuate
  very much at all 

  - weather, seasons, and any other random things that would normally
    affect the runeys increases or decreases was easily managed

- If you are able to put 20 runeys in an extinct area when first setting
  up the map sections (30 in homestead) then you are almost guaranteed
  to always have slight increases instead of decreases. 

  - But if not 10 in each section (20 in homestead) will work until you
    build them up to 30 of each type in map sections (40 in homestead). 

- Later if you want to get sections to prosperity then raise each map
  section to 40-60 of each type.

Runeys and Dungeons:

Does the runey system affect what is grown in the dungeons?

Yes, already tested (runey system affects all areas even all the dungeons)

- If runeys are good then crops in dungeons can produce faster
- If runeys are not good then crops in dungeons will grow slower and die

Remember that just because a specific area is green on the map does not
  mean that specific area will be good for crops 

- If all (or enough) other areas on the map are red or black then all
  areas will be affected and not just each section
- The map colors are averaged as a whole and not individually
- If all map sections are green then your crops should grow averagely
- If most map sections are green with some yellow then your crops will
  grow faster than average
- It also helps to grow a lot of crops in all the dungeons to help
  produce runes through the winter season (RP gains)

Most times I have found that on the 20th of the month that 1 and
sometimes 2 random map sections will get +20 runeys automatically.

I have even gotten a +20 grass runeys in an extinct grass map area. 

The +20 runeys will be of the type of that random map section
(so if the random runeys appeared at the Beach then they would
be +20 water runeys).

There is some debate that you get +20 runeys automatically no matter
what and that it is just randomly generated by the game.

However, I believe that it may come from growing certain numbers of
crops in dungeons. On a few occasions during my testing in various
separate game files, I have had no crops growing in dungeons and have
not received the +20 runeys on the 20th of the month. So I believe
that it may be possible that the +20 runeys are generated by crops
grown in dungeons.

I have gotten +20 runeys when my map areas were all green and above.
I have gotten +20 runeys when my map areas were mostly red and black.
I have not gotten +20 runeys a few times when I did not have crops
  in the dungeons.

So, either the game randomly generates the +20 runeys or they come
from crops grown in the dungeons, or they come from another source
that hasn't been identified yet.


- Runes are the same gathering of spirits but inside (in dungeons) they
  appear on fully grown crops
- Till, plant seeds, get grown crops -> If grown crops are left unharvested
  then one rune -- tiny shiny spot -- will appear on the ready to harvest
  crops (must have 9 individual crops per rune such as 9 strawberries or a
  mixture of 9 different crops. When you run over the rune then it will up
  your RP bar a small amount. Keep a lot of ready to harvest crops in the
  scattered little fields in the dungeons to get a lot of runes to run
  through which will give you enough to fill up your RP bar without leaving
  the dungeon. Runes will reappear once per day as long as there are at
  least 9 crops to make a rune in the same field. If you have 9 crops
  (like turnips/single harvest crop) and harvest one then the rune will
  not reappear until you regrow the one you harvested. If you have 9 crops
  (like strawberries/multi-harvest crop) and you harvest one then you would
  have to wait until the one strawberry grew back to have the rune reappear.
  Also, once a rune appears then you don't have to water it anymore unless
  you harvest the crop or crops from the rune area that is tied to the
  rune (any crop that makes up the 9 crops that make the rune). 

Rune Stones:

- Rune Stones are the stones that Candy gives you after you harvest the
  required amount and type of Runeys with the harvester (harvest the
  Runeys and talk to her). Candy will then make different Rune Stones
  with the Runeys to give back to you (or she performs a Runey
  miracle/event that you requested instead with the Runeys). These
  Rune Stones will fit in each of the tiny pillar(s) that are in
  front of "broken/chipped" doors in the dungeons. Rune Stones
  will also allow you to breed monsters. Bred monsters will have
  more friendship and stronger stats.

Some Kross related game info

- I wont include all of Kross's talking/songs/events here
  but the following will give you some insight as to his

- The books he wrote in the library will give you
  advice on building and the ruins so they are
  included here

Is Kross a ghost?:

- Is Kross a ghost? Or supernatural being?

  I am still unsure as to whether Kross is a ghost or
  supernatural being. Maybe they were going to make him
  a ghost and then changed their mind.

    - Some people can't see him
      - Certainly, Anette can hear him but not see him when
        she delivers mail to him

    - Most of the townsfolk have "forgotten" him
      - Lara says the townspeople think they see a ghost but
        "it is just Kross"

    - He has supernatural strength
      - He leaps off of his house roof without getting hurt
      - He moves huge boulders in his field by hand
      - He moves a huge boulder from in front of your door
        by hand 
        - Even Brodik when he thinks that you removed the
          boulder remarks that it is not normal for you
          to be able to remove that boulder and is surprised          
      - He hoists a very buff and heavy Brodik onto his 
        shoulders with hardly any effort
      - He leaps clear across the Green Ruins room and cavern
      - This supernatural strength is not explained away
        by him previously being a ZZyzx Officer/warrior
        because he is still way stronger than any officer

    - The only time that Kross speaks and is seen and heard
      is when Brodik is in the hospital bed just before
      Brodik leaves town

    - He is constantly talking about death and dead grass
      - This may be just his emo personality but it still
        ties into a ghost personality as well

  Either way, I am very intrigued with Kross and think he
  is a great character with a kind heart. I hope he makes
  an appearance in the next sequel :)

Kross Beginning Game Mail Cutscene:

- When you first meet Kross he will say:

You:   Hi, I'm (your name)

Kross: Hi, Are you new?

You:   Yes, and what is your name?

Kross: You don't need to know.
       The villagers forget my name anyway.

You:   Um ...
       Are you Kross?

Kross: ... ?!
       How do you know my name?!

You:   Huh?
       It's written on your mailbox.
       You really write your name with
       really cute letters, Kross.

Kross: That isn't my writing.
       I'm sure the mailman just
       wrote it herself out of

       You should take a look inside
       your mailbox some time.
       It should be in front of
       your house.

       Heh ...

       Now then I should get back
       to work.

       Your name was (your name), was it?

        Let's see ...
        Um ... I got it!
        It's 'Kross'!

        Silly me!
        I even wrote his name on the mailbox
        so I wouldn't forget!

        Whoops ... that was close.
        Why do I always forget about this house
        when I do deliveries?

        I wonder why.

        (Kross opens door/standing in doorway)

Kross:  Hello, Ms. Mailman.

Anette: Did someone call me? (sweating)

Kross:  Good Morning.

Anette: There is no one here but I hear voices ...
        Is it a monster? (sweating)

Kross:  Heh ...

You:    Sure.
        (You look around)
        Um ...
        Where is it?

Kross:  Oh?
        I thought I put it there ...
        (Kross jumps off his roof/looks around)
        That's strange ...
        Oh, it was in my pocket.
        Sorry for calling out to you.

       even on the crops and grass (if planted)

   - Go talk to Brodik

   You:    Did you release monsters into my fields?!

   Brodik: What are you talking about?!
           Why would I ... do ... such a thing?

   You:    Oh ...
           I'm sorry I doubted you.

   Brodik: W-why ...?
           How ... can you just trust me like that ... ?

   You:    But you said it wasn't you, right?
           I'll believe you. I'll believe you because
           you're a member of our village. You're a
           friend of ours.

   Brodik: A friend ... ?
           I ...

           And what's with this letter of challenge ... ?

   Brodik: I ...
           I will defeat you and chase you out of the village!

   You:    Why?
           How do you benefit from chasing me out of the village?

   Brodik: I will answer nothing!
           I choose you!

   - A golem appears (robot machine)

   You:    A monster!
           But that machine is ...

   Brodik: Go, Golem!
           Beat him down!

   - The Golem strikes but hits Brodik

   You:    Brodik?!

           W-what should I do?!
           ... ?!

            He should be able to recover after resting a little.

   You:     That's good to hear.

   - Stella enters

   Stella:  What Happened?

   Kross:   I'm sorry.
            It's all my fault.

   You:     Kross ... ?
            Why are you apologizing?

   Kross:   He ...
            Brodik is probably a special agent from the ZZyzx Empire.

   Lara:    The Zzyzx Empire ...
            The one next to the Kingdom of Norad?

   Stella:  What's a special agent from Zzyzx doing here?

   Kross:   ... A few years ago, a soldier defected from the army.
            He was an officier in the special agent unit, 
            but he was sick of his work.
            Sick of deceiving and hurting ...
            He drifted to a small village in the frontier lands and
            wanted to live in peace on a farm.
            But the Zzyzx Empire would not let him off so easily.
            They believed it would be bad if sensitive information
            were to be leaked so they sent someone after him.

   You:     And that's ... Brodik?

   Kross:   Yes, But, he made one crucial mistake.
            He thinks that you, (your name), are that escaped soldier.
            The real one is elsewhere ...

   Brodik:  It can't be ... !

   Lara:    Brodik!
            You'll reopen your wounds if you shout like that!

   Brodik:  If the real AWOL soldier isn't him, then what are you,
            (your name)?!

   Kross:   (your name) is just a civilian.

   Brodik:  But the search bulletin said that the man had dark hair,
            blue eyes, and is skilled with the sword ...

   Kross:   Yes.
            There is another person in this village that fits that

   Brodik:  Then ...

   Kross:   Yes.
            Former Zzyzx Empire Special Agent, Weber ...
            That is MY previous name, Brodik.

   Brodik:  Then what have I been doing all this time ... ?

   Kross:   If only I had told you sooner ...
            I really must apologize to you, (your name) ...

   Brodik:  But that ...
            I'm sorry ...
            Please leave me alone for now.

   - Brodik stays in bed and if you talk to him he just says " ..."
     - No words/no talking

Stage 6:

   - You will get another challenge letter from Brodik:

     - "You are my only worthy opponent.
        This time. I shall defeat you without the help of monsters.
        I shall be waiting at Green Ruins, B1F."

   - Go to the Green Ruins 1st floor/larger round platform
   - Kross is also there

   You:     Brodik?

   Brodik:  I'm glad you could make it.

   You:     Why do we have to fight?
            There is no reason that we should ...

   Brodik:  I can't move on until we finish things between us!
            That's why ...

   You:     Brodik ...

   Kross:   (your name), would you please grant his wish?
            There are times when people cannot turn back.
            For him, this is that time. Please understand ...

   - Choose "All right" (alright)

   Brodik:  Thank you!
            I will fight you with everything I have!
            That is why you must, too ... !

   You:     Yes ... !

   - Fight Brodik (you can have a monster with you if you need to)
     - You can only hit him once at a time (no combos)
     - It will show a long purple enemy boss line
     - Just keep hitting Brodik to decrease it

   - After you beat him then he will be lying on the ground on the
     larger round platform

   Brodik:  Heh heh heh ...
            I lost! I admit that I completely lost!
            But why do I feel so refreshed?!
            I fought with all my strength.
            I have no regrets.

   - Now Brodik is standing up

   Brodik:  Sorry to have caused you so much trouble til now.
            I'll just report to my superiors that our target
            wasn't here.

   Kross:   Are you sure. If another person comes and finds me
            here it will be bad for you.

   Brodik:  Heh heh heh ...
            I lived next to you all this time and didn't notice.
            I doubt others will find it any easier.

   Kross:   ...

   Brodik:  See ya, (your name).
            I'll write to you when things settle down.

   - Brodik starts to leave

   You:     Brodik!
            Take care.

   Brodik:  Heh heh heh ...
            You, too.

   - Brodik leaves

   Kross:   (your name), I really caused you so much trouble.
            I don't know how to apologize to you.

   You:     It's nothing!
            I'm just glad the misunderstanding is cleared up.
            Besides ...
            I feel like I got to know you a little better, Kross.
            Let's go back to the village.

   (end conversation)

   - You can now go into Brodik's House
     - It is empty except a table and bed
     - Press A at the bed:

       - I wonder how Brodik is
         What are all these books doing under the bed?
         They all look the same.

         Let's see ...
         "Golem Assembler Weekly" ...


     - You can sleep on the bed or decide not to
       - Doesn't do anything out of the ordinary

- Things Brodik does through the above stages:
  - Rings your doorbell and runs away
  - Fills your shipping box with rocks
  - Messes up your farm field
  - Releases a Golem in your farm field (messing it up)
  - Puts a boulder in front of your door (Kross moves it)
  - Challenges you to two fights (you can bring your monster)

- Congratulations, Brodik is now gone from the village ...
  but he returns once per year

Lara discussing Kross and the villagers:

- Basically Lara says how all the villagers have been
  seeing a ghost lately. Then she says "but it is just Kross".

- Summer

Lara:  Good Morning.

       I hear some rumors about a ghost recently ...

       It's not a ghost. It's Kross. He's lived here for so
       long that people never notice him. People need to be
       more caring and learn his name.

Mysterious Wardrobe:

- Press A at the wardrobe in Kross's House while he is in
  his house and he will say the following:
  - If you open that, you won't be able to go back to the
    way things were. Still want to open it ... ?
  - No options

- Later in the storyline press A at the wardrobe in Kross's
  house while he is not in his house and you will say:
  - Huh ...? This bookcase moves ...
  - No options

  - If he is in the house he will say:
  - (Your name), you shouldn't pry into people's secrets
    like that. There are times when knowing what you
    shouldn't brings tremendous pain. Do you still want
    to know?

  - Choice:
    - I want to know
    - Well, in that case ...

  I want to know option:

  Kross: Heh ...
         I see ...
         Sometimes curiosity can make a person strong.
         I guess you have the right to know.

  - The wardrobe is REMOVED revealing a secret
    doorway that leads into a weapons room!

  - Press A at the weapons

  You:   What is this ...?

  Kross: Odd, huh?
         I came here to escape the constant fighting
         but I've hidden these here.
         I ...
         I'm a coward ...

  You:   No, you're not!
         All these weapons have Retornen cast on them,

         I've heard that Retornen is a magic created with
         the firm conviction not to hurt anyone.
         I don't concider someone who only has such
         weapons a coward.

  Kross: (Your name) ...
         Heh ...
         You are a strange young man. You've managed to melt
         even my hardened heart ...
         I think I finally understand why everyone in town
         speaks so highly of you.

         Thank you, (your name) ...
         I won't hide anything anymore.
         I'll also leave this room open at all times.
         That is a sign of the trust I have in you ...

Some Lute related game info

- I wont include all of Lute's talking/cutscenes/events here
  but the following will give you some insight as to his

Why Lute Paints:

You:  Lute, why do you like to paint?

Lute: This probably sounds wierd, but one day, I want to paint
      the ultimate sky that can engulf everything onto canvas.

      That's why I picked up the paintbrush.

      I have to keep a grand goal so I always remember at
      least this.

Portrait (Self-Portrait):

  - Buy all 5 of his paintings
  - He only sells one painting per season
  - He can sell a Summer painting in Winter
    - Season you are in doesn't have to match the painting season
  - Painting go in order (seasons in paintings) and you have to buy
    one before you get the next one

  - Rebuy the Summer Ocean Painting again
    - Buy all of Lute's paintings and he
      will say that you bought them all
    - The second time that you buy the
      Summer Ocean Painting he says that
      someone else bought one of his
    - Then go talk to Lute again and he
      will give you your self-portrait
      for helping him gain confidence
      in painting (for buying all his
    - The portrait painting shows you
      with a hoe over your shoulder
    - It is not as realistic as the
      others but is a good original

    - You can keep buying the 5 paintings
      over again so there may be more to 
      this (maybe another portrait?)
    - Lute will continue to sell paintings
      to you (one per season)
    - Even though you spend another 5,000 G
      on each one, they will be the same
      paintings and have the same names
      and your painting selection will
      not change
    - He does not indicate in any way
      that he is done selling paintings
      to you and he keeps selling the 
      paintings to you

- Go talk to Lute on a holiday after you've bought the Summer Ocean
  Painting a second time

Lute: Thanks again.

      I have a present for you today, (your name).

You:  A ... present?

Lute: That's right.

      The person that bought my painting the other day really liked
      it. So that person is going to come to buy my paintings from
      time to time.

You:  Oh, really?

Lute: Thank you kindly. This is all thanks to you, (your name).
      I was able to build my confidence because you encouraged me.

      Now about the present ... 
      I would like to use you as my model for a painting.

      I'll hang this up in the usual place at your house.
      Please take a look whenever you feel like it.

You:  Th-thank you very much.
      But, hanging up a painting of myself feels kind of weird ...
