Part 35: Fall Finale FestivitiesUpdate 35: Fall Finale Festivities
Rune Factorys back, surprise.
Donnels still taking his inability to speak on his own date pretty hard. OhGod looks concerned for him. But at least Im getting crafting materials out of it.
I promise, Lara, I am definitely not working hard in the field.
I wanted to show off for a moment that I have all the books now, except for Accessories 4/4. Ill need to buy that on a Tuesday from Russell sometime.
Speaking of Accessories, these Silver Rings are a fantastic way to get early EXP in Decoration, because theyre low level and only require 1 Silver each.
Enough of those and I can finally put those Bird Wings from Mt. Gigant to work, upgrading the sleeping bag, which increases the amount of times you can use it. Still missing one ingredient, though. Dont have any Strong String.
So normally youd just kinda have to hope this dropped off of...something, but Im a cheater and I looked it up, so I know its here at Mt. Gigant.
The targets are these forgettable spider enemies.
The Sword Beam, by the way, is ridiculous, doing 89 damage in a single blow to this poor bastard.
Didnt take too long. I stuck around to get some more, though.
Sword Beam also PIERCES. Its weird that the most useful offensive magic in this game is just not using the magic system at all.
Im going to be pretty overleveled for Misty Bloom.
This second string took longer than the first, but were done.
As I was walking out, Lady Ann walked up the mountain. I think this is the first time Ive seen an NPC move outside of a cutscene.
: I especially like the mountains on rainy days like today. Everyone says Im crazy, though.
Its a nice touch, I think.
Oh, the spiders can also seal you. Thats no fun.
But hey, mission complete
And that absolutely skyrocketed the Decoration skill. Ill take it.
Its a Holiday, so its Ivan time.
Finally, the cooking utensils! I got all of these.
Turns out I need the Large Kitchen for these. And because I didnt have the house upgraded last time that was available...gonna have to wait for that to come around, buy it, and then wait these to roll around again. Well, damn.
Leo, however, is always open. And our fishing pole can still get another upgrade from him.
I could have done this myself, but I think it requires a monster drop, and this is easier.
Now then, new utensils!
The Knives are pretty much reserved for making Sashimi out of just about every fish in the damn game.
The frying pan is pretty versatile, using all ingredients from fish to produce.
And the blender is pretty much just juices. So youll need crops for that. I probably wont use the blender much.
Now then, its the 20th
Still 11 days to kill. Fear not, though, Ill cut most of it.
A few highlights deserve showing, though. Like this! The Wool Show!
I should mention that my petting and feeding of these monsters has not gone to waste.
We finally have their top-end produce, like this egg bigger than Donnels torso!
And, nicest of all for now, a Large Fur. This should be solid fodder for the Wool Show.
Thats a pretty good Friendship score!
Ignore all those zeroes, they never have to know.
Just like the other festivals so far, everyones out in the streets to celebrate.
Mist has some fascinating insight for us.
No wonder everyone hates Zavier.
Then why are you in the plaza for the Wool Show? Bianca this was poorly planned.
I will not relive my dairy related failures.
Im gonna BURY Camus.
Here we go
What does that translate to? Your FP rises with every single townsperson!
Look at how beloved Donnel is now!
This is the bottom of the list! Weve come a long way. (granted FP doesnt really do anything past 3 for house keys, but Im still happy.)
Never change, Jasper.
Sharron, as usual, has nothing to say about the festivals. She has no joy.
Skip ahead a few days now, and...
Ivans got something special, its the only item hell stock today, and you need the house upgrade first.
: Well, I have to recommend the double bed. Youll need a double bed before a girl will marry you! Itll cost you 10,000g.
Of course, thats a yes.
: Thanks as always! Itll soon be delivered to your house.
Wow. Its even red. Theres only one way Donnel knows to break in a new bed.
Passing out next to it.
Now that Ive got my rod back, time to do a little fishing.
In front of Sharron, of course. Maybe Donnel can work up the courage to propose that way.
The actual reason I did this was to fill up on these Salmon, because theyre the best fish for early Cooking exp.
As shown here, although the final product looks
...Gotta try it.
This has been a good update.
Cooking is still a pretty hard skill to level up, though, since its the only one where you can waste ingredients.
One nice thing about food is that it does stack in your inventory. I should note that the level of the dish doesnt matter, the quality of ingredients doesnt change anything.
Oh, theres also this, the lamest holiday.
Nobodys even out celebrating. Fishing Day has one purpose, and one purpose only.
Its not talking to Lukas, but hes got a hot tip for us.
: I wonder if it has anything to do with the increase in the number of monsters around here.
Fishing Day, instead, is a day you can give Mei fish.
It gives you a special message and raises her LP.
Still...very...slowly. Marrying Mei is terrible.
But Fall finally fades
And Winter has come to Kardia.
Just a quick note, if you try to pet an animal at max FP (10), you dont get the hearts popping out.
But we all know the real reason Ive been waiting for this.
Next time, finally.
This accursed hellhole.
