This FAQ covers the different areas you can gather items throughout
the mountainous area. The items can be used in recipes, for building
material, etc. This is NOT the same thing as finding items on the
ground.

1. Locations of Gathering Spots

Press "A" when near one of the gathering locations to begin gathering things.

**Start from Konohana to Mountainous Area onward to Bluebell**


1st Area - Go left when you first enter from Konohana and jump down
a ledge. The large stump is the gathering location.

1st Area - Jump up to the zip line and use it to zip down to another
area. Walk up after hitting the tree (lol), then turn left. There is
a brownish area that looks like Bamboo Shoots. That is the gathering
location.

2nd Area - Continue on the path until you may jump down a ledge. Jump
down to the stream and follow it north. Behind the waterfall is a wall
crack with foliage. That is the gathering location.

3rd Area - Follow the path until you can jump down a ledge on the left.
Next, slide down the dirt slide. Continue south-east until you find a
tree stump. That is the gathering location.

4th Area - No gathering locations I'm aware of.

5th Area - No gathering locations I'm aware of.

6th Area - Go under the wooden bridge. Next, go north past the bottom of
a dirt slide into a small area with a leaning tree. That is the gathering
location.

7th Area - Jump down to the south at the entrance and continue south
until you come across a tree stump. That is a gathering location.

7th Area - From the entrance, go between the bottom of the first dirt slide
and the grassy bridge over the stream. Run across the stream into the
bottom of a dirt slide. Next, go north to a fallen tree.

7th Area - Continue along the path until you reach a northern ledge.
Jump up the ledge and go to the top. At the split, go just west to a crack
in the rock wall. That is the gathering location.

8th Area - You've reached Bluebell from Konohama.


***Start from Bluebell to Mountainous Area onward to Konohama***


1st Area - Jump up the northern ledge and go to the top. At the split, go
just west to a crack in the rock wall. That is the gathering location.

1st Area - Continue along the main path. Go between the bottom of the first
dirt slide and the grassy bridge over the stream. Run across the stream
into the bottom of a dirt slide. Next, go north to a fallen tree.

1st Area - Continue along the main path, then jump a southern ledge towards
the exit. Continue south to a tree stump. This is the gathering location.

2nd Area - Continue along the main path. You'll see the bottom of a dirt
slide (before going under the wooden bridge). Go north to a leaning tree.
That is the gathering location.

3rd Area - No gathering locations I'm aware of.

4th Area - No gathering locations I'm aware of.

5th Area - On the right (south) is a ledge. Jump down it and slide down the
dirt slide. Continue south-east to a tree stump. That is the gathering
location.

6th Area - On the right (south) is a ledge. Jump to the bottom by a stream.
Follow the stream north to a waterfall. There is a wall crack with foliage
behind the waterfall. That is the gathering location.

7th Area - Jump up the northern ledge to a zip line. Go north, after hitting
the tree, then west. The brownish Bamboo Shoot area is the gathering location.

7th Area - Head towards the exit. Just before the exit, jump south down a ledge.
This leads to a tree stump, which is the gathering location.

8th Area - You've reached Konohama from Bluebell.

with the villagers who live in Bluebell by +1000 points. This does not include
marriage candidates.

4. Tips:

- Don't worry too much about which village you first choose. Towards
the end of each season, you can switch to the other town.

- Make sure to water your crops as early as possible, so you can water
again later in the day, which speeds up the growing process. Also make
sure to feed your animals.

- Stock up on Fertilizer, since you may not be able to get it later when you
most need it, since the shop is closed many times or they may not have it.

- Check the Request Board to see what items the people want. Search for
those to get the rewards.

- Gather other items on the ground as you go around searching for these items.

- Do some Hand-Fishing in the 1/7 and 7/1 areas to add to your gathering.

- Catch critters as you go along the paths. Grab the ones jumping out of
the grass quickly. Jump and grab the flying critters.

- Ride your horse to do this trip more quickly, especially when returning.

- Take your horse and cart for more storage, which you will probably need
often enough.

- If you're unsure of what the item is or could do, keep it. You may need it
later for a recipe, request, etc. Especially keep 10 each of Old Balls and
Old Boots, which you get from Hand-Fishing. There is a request later, which
requires 10 of each to get a nice reward ;)

- Don't fall in the deep water too much, since it drains your stamina.

- Check the Board for general info.

8. Q/A:

Q: May I help?
A: Go for it. I will put your username in the Special Thanks section
of the Credits.

Q: How did you find this?
A: Complete accident.

Q: Do you know the rates or schedule for things showing up?
A: No. You could probably try resetting to get something you want. Of course,
I suggest saving first.

Q: How often can you gather from a spot?
A: Once per day.

Q: Are shops closed on rainy days?
A: Yes. If it stops raining at 1 pm, then they may open back up.

Q: Is this a fun game?
A: Yes! Slightly harder than Grand Bazaar, but easier than Sunshine Islands.

Q: I've only played Rune Factory games. Would I enjoy this?
A: If you enjoyed the farming and social aspects of RF, then yes, you
probably will. There are no monsters or monster fighting though.

Q: Can I ask you about other parts/aspects of the game?
A: Yes, but I HIGHLY suggest searching the Board and/or asking on the Board,
since it WILL be much faster.

Q: Why do you have Wonderfuls info. in this FAQ?
A: I did that, since 2 of the Wonderfuls are found through this FAQ and I wanted
people to know what they could do and whatnot.

*More to come*
