Introduction
==============================================================================
I've seen a LOT of questions about the Wonderfuls on the Message boards and
Also that there is no FAQ that explains how to obtain them, or any other
type of information on the site, so I've created this FAQ to help anyone that 
has a question about the Wonderful System.


==============================================================================

==============================================================================
Wonderfuls..............................................................[BM01]
==============================================================================
Each Tool that you acquire throughout the game has something called Wonderful
Stone Slots associated with it.  Equipping Wonderfuls on a Tool can have many
different effects on that tool depending on both the Wonderful, and the tool
that wonderful is being equipped to.  

How do I Equip Wonderfuls to My Tool?
   Good question! On the second day of your game, the general store owner Chen
will arrive on your island with his son Charlie.  After they set up shop,
Charlie will be available in the early mornings and evenings (normally around
3 p.m.) to Equip and Remove wonderfuls.  YOU CANNOT REMOVE OR CHANGE WONDERFUL
STONES YOURSELF.  You can change/remove wonderfuls as many times as you want
in one visit or one day.

What do the Wonderfuls Do?
    There are seven (7) different colored wonderfuls that you can find
throughout the game. Red, Blue, Green, Orange, Yellow, Purple, and Indigo.
Sometimes what each wonderful does depends completely on the tool that they
are attached to.  Certain wonderfuls always have the same effect no matter
what tool they are associated with. For example, the Indigo wonderful will
always give 5 extra stone slots on each tool and the purple wonderful will
always give 2 gold per wonderful attached to the equipped tool per charged
swing.  For more information on each wonderful's effects on each tool, see
the specific tool section(s).

How do I charge my Tool?
    Good question.  Simply either hold the button associated with the tool
that you want to charge or keep the stylus pressed down on that tool until
light surrounds the tool before you swing.  Once the light appears, your
tool is charged and you can reap the benefits of your wonderfuls.

=================================================
Obtaining Wonderfuls.......................[BM02]
=================================================
There are three (3) Ways to obtain wonderfuls throughout the game.  Each one
requires time, patience, and in some cases, cold hard cash.  I have listed
each way to obtain wonderfuls and the necessary information on how to attain
them below for your reading pleasure.

NOTE: You have control over which wonderful you receive from the Goddess and
the one you win at festivals by using the following method.

MINE:
If you reach the 254th floor and save, then drop down to the 255th floor,
immediately after the Goddess stops talking check your rucksack.  If the color
wonderful that you desire is not in your rucksack, then reload, and use a tool
10 times, and then drop again.  The color will change!

The color rotation of the Wonderful given by the goddess (and at festivals)
is on a set cycle.  (See below)

FESTIVALS:
Enter the festival and if you win, you will get a dialog box telling you which
wonderful you received.  If that is not the color you desire, simply reload 
and use a tool about ten (10) times, then enter again.

COLOR ROTATION:
The color rotation of the Wonderful given is set on a specific cycle.

Blue -> Green -> Red -> Yellow -> Orange -> Purple -> Indigo -> (Loop)

Say you reach the 255th floor, and receive a red wonderful, using a tool 10 
times will nudge your farm degree up by 10 points and move you onto the Yellow
wonderful, and so on.

If you are curious as to specifically how the color of your wonderful ties to
your Farm Degree the associated scores are as follows:

Wonderful Color      Last 2 Digits of Farm Degree
Blue Wonderful       Between  0 and 19 Points
Green Wonderful      Between 20 and 39 Points
Red Wonderful        Between 40 and 54 Points
Yellow Wonderful     Between 55 and 70 Points
Orange Wonderful     Between 71 and 82 Points
Purple Wonderful     Between 83 and 90 Points
Indigo Wonderful     Between 91 and 99 Points

========================
Festivals.........[BM03]
========================
Each season certain festivals are held that you can win and receive wonderfuls
You must come in 1st place in order to receive a wonderful for all your hard
work.  Below is a list of every festival that grants wonderfuls as a price as
well as how to win it.

all of its wool and not be pregnant to enter, it also must be in good health.

find to claim first place.

Submit an exceptional crop.  This is easy if you have a greenhouse, just make
sure it has had the minimum sun and water requirements.  If you do not have

the better your chance of winning.

========================
Mining............[BM04]
========================
Mining is one of the harder ways to attain wonderfuls when you start off.
But once you can get down to the 255th floor, you may receive a wonderful
from the Goddess for your efforts.

If you have unlocked the Goddess by throwing 1 thing into the goddess pond
then every odd numbered time you reach the 255th floor you will receive a
wonderful from her based on your invisible farming degree.


========================
Chen's Shop.......[BM05]
========================
In the Winter Chen will sell wonderfuls in his shop if your farming degree
that morning end with the number 5.  To make sure he has a wonderful in stock,
simply save before going to bed and the next morning, run to his shop and
see if he has one listed (it will always be the last item on his inventory
list).

If he is not selling a Wonderful that morning, reload and use a tool 1 time,
you can either save after using your tool once, or keep track of how many times
you have used your tool. The next morning go check his shop again and see if he
has one for sale.  Keep using your tool 1 extra time until one appears in his
shop.

The color of the Wonderful he is selling that day depends on the date.
Date               Color             Price
Winter 01 - 06     Red Wonderful      2,000 Gold

==============================================================================
Tools...................................................................[BM06]
==============================================================================
There are two (2) types of tools, animal oriented tools and work tools.  You 
start out with a set of work tools which consist of the Axe, Hammer, Hoe, 
Sickle, and Watering can.  The Animal Tools (Brush, Milker, and Clippers), 
have to be bought from Meribelle once she opens her livestock shop on the
island and Gannon sells the Work in his shop once he opens business on the
island.

At the start of the game, your beginning tools only have one (1) stone slot
each.  You can buy duplicates of the items at their respective shops as soon
as they are open.  

Each year, the shops will sell a version of the tool with an extra stone slot.
The price rises with each extra stone slot that is available.  The first year
of the game you can buy tools with three (3) stone slots for 3,000 gold.
At the start of your second year, you can buy four (4) stone slotted tools for
4,000 Gold.  This continues until your 7th year, when you are able to buy the
highest quality tool available with ten (10) stone slots.

==============================================================================
Other Information.......................................................[BM15]
==============================================================================
These are answers to some common questions I keep seeing on the message boards
hopefully by answering them in this FAQ it will help others out.


====================================================
Fishing Rod...................................[BM16]
====================================================
Can you attach wonderfuls to your fishing rod? No.  The Fishing Rod, while
technically a Tool, cannot have any Wonderfuls attached to it.

====================================================
Why aren't my Wonderfuls Working?.............[BM17]
====================================================
You probably aren't charging your tool.  Hold down the button associated with
said tool until it starts glowing, once it is glowing, use the tool. The
wonderfuls should start doing their job.

====================================================
Whatís this about a Farm Degree?..............[BM18]
====================================================
Your farm degree is a number, based on everything you do during the game,
for example, every time you use a tool, it adds one point to your degree.
You cannot see the exact number of your farm degree, but you do receive
a nifty title depending on how many points you have.

====================================================
Why am I not getting Wonderfuls in the Mine?..[BM19]
====================================================
Eeek! Did you not read above? You didn't unlock the Harvest Goddess by
throwing something into her Pond!  Make sure you do that or all of your hard
work will be for naught!


==============================================================================
