Welcome again to another walkthrough by me: Michele!

Well this is a change of pace for me for those of you being my loyal
followers...Generally I write survival horror guides so I wonít be
surprised to find you wondering what Iím doing at a harvest moon FAQ.
Truth be told, I LOVE harvest moon and probably own every single version
of the game on its many different consoles. My favorite versions are
still Back to Nature, Harvest moon 64, Magical Melody and Animal Parade.
Anyways, seeing as though there was next to zero FAQS out there for this
game...well you all know the drill, I stepped in and took charge! (I
love doing that kind of stuff :P)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This guide contains SPOILERS!!! This guide will do one thing; help you
get to point A to B with all the help necessary to do so. If you DO NOT
want someone to hold your hand throughout the game, then please do not
use my guide, I promise I will not be offended! This guide was written
using the Innocent Life copy for the Playstation 2 exclusively. I have
no idea what is and isnít similar in the Psp version of this game.

Direct from the instructional booklet:
	*Life is good for the residents of Heartflame Island, especially
since new robots and automated machines do almost all the work. But
technology is a tool--not an answer to all problems. Maybe thatís why
everyone is a little uneasy about the old stories of strange magic and a
prediction that Flame Mountain will erupt and destroy everything. Thatís
why Dr. Hope made you--because you can open and explore ancient places
where no human has ventured for many years.*

Goal:
       The goal of this particular Harvest Moon is to appease the wrath
of the Fire Spirit. Youíll have two years to do this otherwise the
islandís volcano will erupt and destroy everything. In order to calm the
Fire Spiritís anger you must find the Water Spirit and convince it to
use its power of ice to stop the volcano from exploding. However, the
Water Spirit wonít help you until youíve found the Forest Spirit. The
Forest Spirit unfortunately has been separated into 3 sprites that
youíll need to find and then get them to re-join into the Forest Spirit.
All this, while trying to learn to become human! Phew!


******************************************************
A. Whatís different from Past Harvest Moons? (CHAN01)
******************************************************

So whatís different from this game than every other Harvest moon game
out there? In short...A LOT!

1. The way to get around town is no longer by horse...in this game
youíll receive a buggy which not only is more impressive than a horse
but moves much faster!

2. You, the main character, are a robot. Thatís quite a change from
being the loveable human Jack we Harvest Moon fans know and love. Seeing
as though youíre a robot, you are unable to marry in this game. Thatís
right, youíve heard me correctly, NO MARRIAGE! That means no wooing of
any sort in this game. No love for the robot...

3. You do not start off the game with ANY animals...that includes your
trusty dog. Please see my Pets section of this guide for how to obtain
your fuzzy friends.

4. There is absolutely zero option to give gifts to people to boost
friendship points. In fact, you donít need to converse with any of the
townís folk if you donít want too...other than for story progression of
course. People may rejoice or scream as they wish.

5. There is a TON of variations of crops to grow in this game, from
different flowers (sunflower, rose, tulip etc...) to crops (melons,
lemons, green peas etc...), and even herbs (lavender, rosemary etc.)

6. Your field is huge, but certain sections are locked and therefore
unusable to you until you can break the seal on them...How you ask?
Please read my Your Farm section for more.

7. You donít build a barn or henhouse in this game (or any other
building actually). You own one giant facility thatís houses all your
animals from the very beginning but just like your fields you will be
unable to use them until you break the seal.

8. Your tools level up with a certain amount of experience from use,
similar to Harvest Moon 64.

9. There are only a few festivals that occur during the game, and you
will be told when they are as the story progresses. Make sure to
remember when they are since you also have no calendar to check if
youíre wrong!

10. In this new HM title, each season is 35 days long! Thatís 5 extra
days instead of the old 30 day calendar of HMís past.

These are just a handful of brand new changes, some of which are already
vastly different from previous HM titles. There are plenty more changes
and differences in this game, can you discover them all?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE READ!
Note: This guide will never dictate what kinds of crops you should grow,
what animals you should get or anything like that. The sole purpose of
this guide is to help you, the player, complete the storyline in the
earliest time period possible while still acquiring all the different
items, crops, fruits etc. that the game has to offer. This is your game,
so play it how you choose. Also note that this guide does and will spoil
to the storyline for you. Iíve tried to be as detailed as possible and
in so doing have spoiled much of the story during my walkthrough. I will
not be offended if you choose not to use my guide but at the same time I
will not be blamed for ruining your game experience if you choose to
read ahead. Alright, as usual Iíve rambled too long...lets start a new
life shall we?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


*****************************
      Friday, Winter 33
*****************************

When you first begin the game, youíll see different images appearing on
your screen until it eventually forms a heart shaped island. Welcome to
Heartlfame Island! Afterwards, youíll see a man typing on his computer.
Heís filling out a registration form for someone, someone that happens
to have your name :) Note how he changes his mind in labeling the person
a male instead of a robot. (Iíve been recently informed that the doctor
may not be changing the species of your character but simply listing the
robot as a male robot.)
The scene then switches to the mayors office. The mayor and his son
discuss that the doctor wishes to go through with registering this
person as a resident of the island.

Back to the lab, you awaken in a tube as the man from the intro welcomes
you. He introduces himself as Dr. Hope Grain and states that he will be
your father. He then tells you that youíre currently in his residence
and then asks you if you saw the image of the island he sent to you. You
can either choose yes or no. Choose YES to continue the game play.
Choosing NO will allow you to watch the different images forming the
island once again.

Dr. Hope then continues to tell you that youíll need to try and grow
some crops and that this is youíre initiation to becoming a full-fledged
resident here on the island. He says that to become fully human youíll
need to learn to value of life. After he says this youíre free to move
about. Before you leave the lab however, make sure to speak with the
Maid. Sheíll explain how to check your inventory. This can be done by
pressing the L1 button.

At this time follow Dr. Hope out into the sitting room and introduce
yourself to Gayak, a local farmer on the island and one of the few that
still plants crops by hand. Gayak has come to teach you to learn how to
farm after youíve spoken to Gayak speak with your father. Heíll tell you
more about the piece of land he has purchased for you and that he got a
great deal on it because most of the land was sealed (whatever that
means...) He then asked you if were ready to learn how to farm. Select
YES to continue the game play.

Gayak then proceeds to drag you off to his farm where you will
experience a farming tutorial. But before you leave, Dr. Hope grants you
his old watering can to use for farming. You receive the <Doctorís
Watering Can.> Along the way to Gayakís farm, your character will notice
some little dudes popping out of the woods. Theyíll have a little
conversation and then leave. Gayak will ask you what you thought you
heard and afterward will continue the trek to his farm.

Youíll arrive at Gayakís farm and (because itís winter) heíll pull out
his virtual farm to help teach you the basics of farming. So first heíll
explain that you need to till the soil before you can start planting any
seeds and heíll give you his old hoe to use. You receive an <Iron Hoe.>
Equip your hoe by going to your inventory by pressing the L1 button and
then selecting your hoe and pressing triangle. Then proceed to till all
nine squares of earth. Afterward tilling all nine squares, Gayak will
give you a seed bag thatís currently filled with 9 potato seeds. He then
instructs you to plant these seeds in the newly tilled ground.

Note: If youíd liked to get a jump start on your farm, only plant one of
the nine potato seeds that Gayak had given you. After planting one seed,
talk to Gayak to begin the next portion of the tutorial. You just got 8
free seeds! WhooHoo!

Gayak will then ask you to go ahead and water the seed(s) you just
planted. Go and do so then speak with him again to advance your farming
tutorial. He then fast forwards time (remember this is a virtual farm)
to the final stage of the potatoes growth so that you can practice
harvesting. Do so to complete your tutorial. Youíll be tired from your
hard days work and Gayakís wife Marlene will invite you to stay the
night at their house.

*****************************
    Saturday, Winter 34
*****************************

Walk downstairs after waking up and youíll have a meal at Gayakís house.
Marlene will ask you if the food was good, select YES to make her happy.
Doing so will increase your love, cooking and humor points by 1.
Selecting NO will yield no increase. Speak with Marlene and she states
she has something for you. She will give you another seed bag so that
you can hold more types of seeds. After this is done walk downstairs and
speak with Gayak and he gives you 9 turnip seeds to help start your
farm. So at this point you should have 9 turnip seeds and if you chose
to only plant one seed during the tutorial 8 potato seeds as well.
Return back upstairs to meet another character named Marcia; sheís the
grand daughter of Marlene and Gayak. At this point Marcia states sheís
going to drop you off at Dr. Hopeís house.

Along the walk to Dr. Hopes, Marcia states that sheís seen some Nature
sprites around this area. Maybe those were the little guys you saw
yesterday...Anyways, continue to Dr. Hopeís house.

Vita, the maid, will direct you to the dining room so you can eat some
dinner. This is actually a farewell party that the Dr. and Vita are
throwing for you. Afterwards you and the Dr. will have a conversation in
the dining room alone, and he will ask you a question about the value of
life to which you should answer YES. This will make the Dr. happy and
will increase you love and intelligence points by 1.

*****************************
    Sunday, Winter 35
*****************************

Youíll wake up in the shine pod. Walk down screen until Vita starts
talking to you. Sheíll mention that the Dr. is outside by the garden
(which is directly west of the house.) Go there now and speak with Dr.
Hope. You both walk back to the house afterwards to meet the artist
thatís to bring you to your new farm. At this point after saying goodbye
to the doctor, you and Moonlight head off to your place at the Easter
Ruins.

Along the way Moonlight will point out different landmarks such as the
south Heartflame cave and youíll take a lovely jaunt through the valley
towards the ruins. Youíll both walk into the ruins and youíll enter your
room. Moonlight will remind you that youíre a stranger in this land and
that youíll need to work hard in order to gain the townsfolkís trust.
Youíll head to bed at this point and your human stats will increase.
Your challenge, love and intelligence will all increase by 1 point.

*****************************
    Monday, Spring 1
*****************************

Some old man by the name of Franco will awaken you. Heís come to watch
you in action on your very first day. Head over to the elevator and
choose the option to go up to your farm. Franco will explain that he
already tilled some soil for you so that you can start planting those
turnips seeds Gayak gave you the day before. Youíll have to till your
own soil from now after this. So go ahead and plant those turnip seeds
in the already prepared soil then till some more soil for the potato
seeds and water them as well. Donít forget to water your crops every day
or they wonít grow otherwise!

After youíve finished with your crops, make your way over to the item
box (itís the burnt orange looking tube to the left of the elevator with
grass on top of it.) Press the O button to bring up a menu and choose
the option to put away items. At this time you can safely put away both
empty seeds bags as well as the power and snow soles.

Note: Only put away the soles if youíre using the analog stick to move
around. If youíre using the directional pad, youíll need to have the
appropriate soles equipped (the red power soles for spring - autumn and
the blue soles for winter) otherwise youíll be defaulted to walking.
Using the analog stick will always make you run and thus the soles have
no use.

After doing this, spend sometime and walk around your farm meet and
greet all of the people that have come to visit you. You will meet the
majority of the townsfolk at this time so try to make friends yes? After
speaking with everyone, talk with Franco and heíll remind you that you
will be unable to leave the ruins until after youíve successfully
harvested your first shipment of crops. At this time everyone will leave
your farm for the day. At this point youíre free to fully explore your
ruins home inside and out.

If you check out your storage facility, youíll find 2 sealed blue doors
and a seed box. Even though the blue doors are locked now, remember
their location for later! The seed box is where all of your seeds are
kept. When you purchase seeds from the store or from your seed machines
(that you unlock later) they automatically get sent to this location.
You must have a seed bag in your inventory if you want to remove any
seeds from the box. You can also look inside the box to see which seeds
you already have. The box is also used for putting away any unused seeds
that you no longer want to carry around in your pack.

If you travel down to the ruins entrance and head to the northern end of
the room, youíll see another sealed door but this time itís red. Thereís
nothing more of note in the entrance at this time so why donít you step
outside?

The wooden door to the left of the main ruins entrance (where you came
out of earlier) houses Franco, the elderly man who woke you up this
morning. Speak to him if you wish to learn more about the history of the
island. There is a blue door to the left of Francoís house though itís
sealed off at the moment, remember itís location for later!

The wooden door to the right of the main ruins entrance houses
Moonlight, the artist that guided you to your home the other day. There
are two orange sealed doors to the right of Moonlightís house; make note
of them for later! You should also make note of the different trees and
bushes you may come across for they bear fruit during different seasons
for you to harvest. None are ripe now however and so are of little use
currently.

If you continue along the right side of the screen, youíll eventually
come to a long swinging bridge. You are allowed to cross the bridge but
when you try to enter the area beyond you are scolded by Franco and
reminded that you cannot leave the area until you harvest your first
crop!

Now Iím going to ask you to do something that may prove difficult to
those of you that love to have your farm spic and span. Resist the urge
to get rid of any weeds you may see around your farm; although if you
honestly canít survive with a single weed amongst your crops for a few
days you can always throw the weeds into the water pond. >_> Youíll be
receiving an item in just a few days that will help you remove them
faster. Youíll just have to trust me on this.

Try to squeeze some time in today to check out both the Drama and Anime
channels on your TV if you wish. Also, Please make sure to watch the
Cooking Life channel each and every Monday. Itís very important that you
start making a habit of viewing them every week because youíll need to
know all 10 skills (thatís one new skill per week!) in order to complete
a very crucial main story event later in winter. Iíll remind you each
Monday just in case you forget. This weekís lesson is on how to make
ďDrinks.Ē

*****************************
      Tuesday, Spring 2
*****************************

After waking up this morning, head up to your farm to discover a man
standing next to your item box along with the mayorís son. They will
engaged in a conversation talking about how they think farming this
place by hand is crazy and that they thought Dr. Hope wouldíve created a
new invention to help auto-farming prosper; they werenít expecting you.
The mayorís son implores you to keep the fact that youíre a robot a
secret as he doesnít believe that the other townsfolk would take kindly
to it.

Since life on the farm is going to be a bit slow for the first couple
days why not try harvesting a very useful item that can help you in your
farming endeavor? Take the elevator down to the ruins entrance and step
outside. Once outside head to your left and walk down a little slope to
reach the waters edge where you should see many yellow plants on the
ground. This yellow stuff is actually known as strange moss and when
itís used in conjunction with your crops it can help retain water for up
to 2 days. To use the moss, equip it using the triangle button then
place it on tilled soil. One piece of moss can be used to spread across
9 different squares of tilled soil! Thatís pretty amazing if you think
about it. Once on the ground you can then place your crop seeds on top
of the moss. Water the crops at this time and you donít need to worry
about watering for the next 2 days! Pretty cool huh? Strange moss really
shines when you have lots of exploring to accomplish during later parts
of the game. There are around 43 strange mosses that you can pick up
from this lake area.

Thereís also a new TV show you can watch today on the Drama channel if
youíre so inclined.

*****************************
     Wednesday, Spring 3
*****************************

After waking up and heading out to your farm, you see more strange
people standing amongst your fields. Speaking with the closest person
reveals that his name is Million and that he runs the townís
supermarket. After speaking with a very rude youth named Lenny, Million
and he will both leave you to your work.

Water your crops just as before then head downstairs and enter Francoís
lodgings. Franco lives outside the ruins entrance and to the left in
case you forgot! Speak with Franco and heíll ask you if youíre used to
farm life yet, select YES to receive a free sickle! You receive an <Iron
Sickle.> Now you can have something else to do today! Remember all those
weeds I asked you not to destroy? Well you can go crazy with your new
sickle! Destroy every weed in sight and try to maintain a certain amount
of cleanliness around the farm.

********************************************
Thrusday, Spring 4 & Friday, Spring 5
********************************************

Nothing new one these days, just make sure to keep those crops watered!

*****************************
     Saturday, Spring 6
*****************************

When you wake up this morning, Franco and Moonlight will be standing in
front of the elevator waiting for you. This only happens today if you
chose to retain the 8 potato seeds from the farming tutorial, otherwise
this same event will occur tomorrow only with your turnip crop. (This
guide is going to assume the potato crop is your first crop.) Speak with
Franco to go up to your farm and harvest your first shipment! After
harvesting and then shipping your first potato harvest, speak with
Franco once again to be congratulated on your farming skills!

*Note* Make sure you complete all your chores for the day before talking
with Franco because after you do youíll leave for Dr. Hopeís and you
wont be returning to your farm until tomorrow!

He will then give the order to Moonlight to take you into town. Before
you leave the area, Moonlight remembers that he recently found an old
robot that he wants the Dr. the take a look at. Afterwards, you and
Moonlight (with the robot in tow) head off the Dr. Hopes house.

Once you arrive, Moonlight leaves and the doctor proceeds to perform
your weekly maintenance. After the maintenance, youíll fall asleep and
wake up the next day at the breakfast table.

*****************************
     Sunday, Spring 7
*****************************

You eat a quick breakfast with your father and then you find out that
Million is here to show you around the town. Million and Marcia will
take you on a driving tour of the town showing you all the different
buildings and explaining to you what goes on around town. Try and pay
attention to all the different locations before the tour ends and
Million and Marcia drop you back off at your farm.

Marcia will give you 25 Asparagus seeds for you to get started with your
new planting; these are a gift from Gayak as well as another seed bag
from Marlene. After they drop you off youíre free to return to town
anytime you wish and you can even cross over the swinging bridge to the
right of the ruins to investigate that area.

Try and pick up a few more different kinds of crops while youíre at the
supermarket today. Thereís a spring festival at the end of the month and
Gayak will try to get you to plant all the 6 different kinds of spring
crops in time for the offering. Even if you only buy one of each type of
seed, youíll still fulfill the festivals requirements in plenty of time
to spare. All you need to do is grow all 6 kinds of crops and ship them
as you normally would through the shipping pod. Iíll remind you again as
the time gets closer; this is just an FYI for those of you that want to
get cracking early!

***************************************
Monday, Spring 8 - Saturday, Spring 13
***************************************

Also, make sure to view your second Cooking Life episode for the week on
Monday! This weekís lesson teaches you about ďCutting.Ē

This is really your first week own your own, can you handle it? Anyways,
this week try and accomplish watering your crops and developing a rhythm
to your farming style. A goal for this week could be to bring in some
extra income so that you can afford to buy a scale pack, axe and hammer
in the very near future!

Also, spend some time getting to know the townsfolk. One person in
particular you should see is Liberta. You can find him inside the town
hall (the building behind Millionís store in which you must pass under a
rose arch) sitting in the last row of chairs. Heíll give you a
dictionary, which if you read it, is missing many entries! To gain more
entries, youíll need to first complete certain objectives. One such
objective is to plant all of the 6 different spring crops...which you
should do anyways in preparation for the Spring Festival! If nothing
else, at least read through the entries that are currently in the
dictionary for some funny descriptions.

You should also give some thought to start exploring your surroundings.
If you go across the swinging bridge thatís to the right of the ruins
youíll find yourself on the East side of the island. In the immediate
area, youíll discover a bunch of phones hanging off of the trees along
the right side of the screen; and you should come across a granite
looking pedestal. Make sure to read the description on the pedestal of
the ďwhispering treesĒ as this is just one of Moonlights pedestals and
give a listen or two to some of the phones, theyíre pretty humorous :)

If you go far enough to the right, youíll notice two paths; the right
most path will lead you into the East Mushroom Forest, where you may
have guessed, mushrooms grow. You canít pick any just yet, as youíll
need a scale pack first! The other path will lead you to East Lake where
youíll find another harvest of strange moss to collect if you so choose
as well as the second Moonlight pedestal. Read the description on the
pedestal to discover the ďSouthern Constellation.Ē  Reading all the
descriptions on the pedestals will unlock new words in your Liberta
Dictionary! Now we have 2 of 6 pedestals.

Leaving this area will take you back to the phone trees section. If you
follow the dirt path all the way to the left youíll find yourself in the
Southwest Bank of East Lake. Thereís a broken bridge here hindering your
progression across the lake so weíll have to remember to come back when
itís fixed. Try and take note of all the different plants and trees and
there harvest times. Most wonít be ready to harvest until summer but
itís a good idea to start mapping them out now.

There are two more Moonlight pedestals that weíre able to read at this
point in the game. One is located along the path between the ruins and
the town. You may have noticed that there is a rainbow fence running
along the outskirts of the area. The pedestal is in front of the center
section of the fence and is called the ďRainbow Serpent.Ē The 4th
pedestal is kind of in a tricky area. Continue out of the area with the
rainbow fence and through the cave leading into the town. Proceed along
the dirt path towards the town. Notice the line of trees along the sides
of the path here? Press yourself up against the line of trees along the
lower half of the path. Walk along the path until youíre just about to
walk onto the paved town road and you should slip in-between the trees
to the south and find yourself on a hidden side path. Continue south
along the path to find the next pedestal entitled ďHere and There.Ē The
last two pedestals weíll have to seek out later as more places open up
to us.

In all, this week is a week for trying new things and exploring while
trying to get some money in. It goes by fast so make the most of it!

*****************************
    Sunday, Spring 14
*****************************

Alrighty, youíve had a fun filled first week on your farm all by
yourself and now itís time for your check up with your father Dr. Hope.
After taking care of your crops head on over to the good doctorís house
to see whatís what.

Dr. Hope informs you after your check up that the robot that Moonlight
found is going to need some more time to repair. He wants the robot to
help you with your work on the farm but since it was a battlebot it
needs special modifications. Just as Dr. Hope is finishing up this
statement Gayak bursts into the lab asking for you.

Gayak has a request for you; he wants you to help provide crops for the
Spring Festival that the village is holding two more Sundays from now.
He specifically asks you to grow some different kinds of crops besides
potatoes and turnips since that what his farm can provide. In addition
to this information, he delivers some more seed bags...three more in
fact! He will also provide you with a spanking new harvest basket!
Excellent! This brings your total number of seed bags to 6 now! WhooHoo!

Gayak also suggests that providing crops for the festival may make the
townsfolk respect you more and thus they will be more inclined to fix
the north bridge for you! He then asks you if you understood everything
he said, say YES to continue or say NO to have him repeat his request.
Well thatís something you can look forward to at least! If you were one
of the early birds that started planting different crops when I first
suggested you should have no problem hauling them in by the time the
festive rolls around. For those of you that decided to hold off
planting, I suggest you begin as soon as you can.

You should also have enough money to buy a hammer so I would suggest you
go and purchase one while youíre here in town if you havenít done so
already. Youíll need it in the upcoming days.

*****************************************
Monday, Spring 15 - Saturday, Spring 20
*****************************************

Itís another Monday and that means itís time to watch Cooking Life! This
weekís lesson is on washing but youíll learn new recipes under the
ďCutting <Advanced> selection.Ē

In these up coming days youíll want to focus on making sure you get all
those different crops planted and harvested so that they make it in time
for the festival. It shouldnít be too hard to grow at least one plot of
3x3ís for each of the 6 different types of crops...right? If you have
some spare land you should consider planting some flowers as they look
aesthetically pleasing and they sell for a decent amount as well ^_^

If you managed to purchase a hammer last week, youíll have an additional
chore you may now work on: clearing small rocks! Around your farm youíll
notice large boulders and small rocks, use your hammer on the small
rocks to crush them. Sometimes youíll find nothing when you crush them
but other times youíll find stone bars. When you find a pile of stone
bars, pick it up (it cannot be placed in your backpack so youíll have to
carry each piece individually!) and place it inside the blue shipping
pod which is next to your green crop shipping pod. Shipping stone (and
later wood) generates a small amount of money and should not be viewed
at as a main source of income.

Letís try to save up for a scale pack this week if you can so that you
can start collecting wild items. If you have any extra money laying
about you can also buy the axe otherwise, save any additional money to
replace any one time harvest crops.

*********************
  Human Stat Event
*********************

Thereís a short event you can do around this time. If you arrive at Dr.
Hopeís house before 10am on any day that ISNĒT a Sunday (your
maintenance day) you can speak with him to get an increase for your
human stats. You can find him sitting in the dining room eating
breakfast. Speak with him and heíll comment that you must have a lot of
free time to come to see him before your maintenance day...or...did you
just come because you wanted to see him? Answer YES and heíll comment
that youíre starting to understand what it means to miss someone. You
receive an increase to your Challenge, Intelligence and Creativity by 4
points each when you end your day, not bad at all! You may view this
event multiple days but youíll only receive the stat increase once.

*****************************
      Sunday, Spring 21
*****************************

Finish any chores you may have, make sure you grab your hammer before
you head over for your appointment and then head over to Dr. Hopeís.
Today he decides to give you an item known as the <Grain Family Key.>
This key will unlock the door to a cave thatís inside the tunnel you
pass through each time you want to visit the town. If you didnít bring
your hammer, run back to your farm and grab it because weíre going to
start exploring our very first cave!

To open the cave door, simply walk right up to it and youíll
automatically use the key to unlock it. Directly past the door youíll
notice some small rocks that you can crush with your hammer. These rocks
will appear everyday in case you wanted to use them to level up your
hammer faster. Once you walk down the stairs, youíll be in a rather
large area that resembles a circle. At the very north end of the circle
is a purple door which is sealed at the moment. You may also notice an
abundance of small rocks scattered around the cave, like the ones in the
entrance, which will also reappear daily for your hammering pleasure.
When you break open small rocks in caves they have a chance of yielding
either colored stones or ore. Colored stones can be used in a variety of
ways (depending on the color of the stone) while any ore you find is
simply there to be shipped. Remember to use the blue shipping pod on
your farm when you want to ship any ore you find in the cave! Also, if
you leave the cave with any unused stones in your pack which are not
ďsetĒ into a tool, they will turn into plain ore for you to sell.

There is also a small pond located in the very center of this area but
it cannot be used to refill your watering can. Explore the cave
completely and youíll find some treasure chests! Treasure chests always
contain special items and should be opened whenever you see one. Some
items are critical to the story progression, others are upgrades to your
tools, some are jewels of various colors and yet others are just for fun
and contain money or event items.

You can explore the current unlocked areas of this cave at your leisure,
though it shouldnít take more then a good half day (if your fast even
less!) to complete. Below is a complete list of all the items you can
acquire in this part of the cave.

[] Yellow Jewel
[] Blue Jewel
[] Yellow Jewel

Now, you can do one of two things with these new jewels youíve picked up
once youíve returned to your farm. First, you can choose to do nothing
with them at the moment and place them in your item box until you have
more of the same colored jewels. Or you can start thinking about where
on your farm plot you would like to place them and set them in the
pedestals. You may have notice numerous raised beige pedestals around
your farm. These pedestals are used to hold jewels, such as the ones you
found in this cave. When you place 4 jewels of the same color in a
square youíll ďunlockĒ that farm plot, which means you can now use it to
grow more crops, herbs and flowers on! Place 4 of the same color jewel
and youíll also unlock any sealed doors of the jewels color! So if you
place 4 blue jewels, any blue doors that were sealed will now be open
and thus youíll have new places to explore! Not only that, but different
colored jewels hold different attributes that affect the plot they
surround. If you decide you want to go ahead and place them, and then
change your mind about the plot you choose you can remove the jewel and
place them in another pedestal.

When you get back to your farm, make sure to place the <Grain Family
Key> inside your tool box and free up that valuable space in your pack.
Now that the door to the cave is unlocked youíll no longer need the key
to gain access.

When you go to sleep tonight youíll receive a rather large increase to
your stats! Youíre on your way to becoming a full fledge human!

*****************************************
Monday, Spring 22 - Saturday, Spring 27
*****************************************

Since its Monday, itís time to view the latest episode of Cooking Life!
This week youíll be learning about boiling and learn some new recipes
under...you guessed it...ĒBoilingĒ selection.

If youíve managed to save up enough money for a scale pack, you can
start harvesting some plants from the wild! The only real option to us
at this point is to collect some mushrooms from the East Mushroom
Forest. Make sure you bring your scale pack with you when you go since
simply owning one does little on its own! When you enter the East
Mushroom Forest you should see an abundance of large orangeish red
capped mushrooms. These are known as Fly Agaricsí and theyíre
everywhere! You can fill youíre entire pack in one trip and there will
still be a large amount of mushrooms left! They donít sell for much
however so harvesting these mushrooms does little to increase your money
but they should be picked at least once to be added to your Gathered
Items list.

Picking mushrooms that are not fully grown little yield even less than
usual money amounts. So itís always a good idea to wait until a mushroom
you want to harvest is completely grown before you pick it. Also,
anything you pick in the wild whether it is mushroom or fruit should
ALWAYS be placed in the shipping pod the day you pick it. In this
futuristic world, items sell for the most money when theyíre received at
the height of freshness. If you pick items, then leave them in your
scale pack over night, they will have there sell value decrease by half!
Thatís a major difference! So always try to remember to get those items
out of your scale pack the same day you pick them for max sell value!

Were you able to save for an axe this past week as well? If you managed
to purchase one you can now start chopping up those branches you may
have seen scattered around your farm plots. Simply equip your axe, walk
up to a branch and hack away! It will take 3 swings of your Iron Axe to
completely break a large branch. Just like the stones, when you chop a
branch an item maybe left behind. When breaking a branch youíll either
be left with nothing, 1 bundle of wood (that yields 4 exp points) or 2
bundles of wood (which grants 6 exp points!) There should be enough
large branches around your farm for you to completely upgrade your axe
to level 2 before needing more branches to appear. If there arenít
enough branches to level up, simply wait for a day or so and new
branches will begin re-growing for you to continue chopping.

Other than tending your farm, spend this week picking wild mushrooms,
practicing your axe swing and leveling up your hammer in the cave you
opened up.

*****************************
      Sunday, Spring 28
*****************************

Make sure you complete all your morning chores before heading over to
Dr. Hopeís. Why you may ask? Because today is the long awaited Spring
Festival and after itís over, youíll head straight home and end up in
bed!

Once you arrive at Dr. Hopeís youíll step into the Shine pod for your
weekly checkup. After thatís done, Dr. Hope will give you the ok to
continue working your farm for another week. Heíll then ask you if you
were able to ship some crops besides turnips and potatoes. Since I gave
you the heads up to this, you should answer YES. The doctor will
congratulate you and then Marcia will show up. She letís you know that
the Festival has started and that all the crops you shipped are on
display for the Fire Spiritís offering.

After you and Marcia leave the doctors and head towards the festival,
sheíll stop along the path and comment that she believes she saw some
sprites around here. She letís you know that she was told the sprites
are a form of the Forest Spirit and that they watch over the forest.
Then, she asks you if youíve seen the sprites yourself. Since we saw
them when the game first started, you can honestly answer YES. Marcia is
glad sheís not the only one thatís seen the sprites and then continues
to lead you to the festival cave.

You arrive at the festival a little late but itís alright since you did
provide the crops for the festival after all! After Marcia releases you,
take some time to speak to the other villagers in attendance. Make sure
to talk to Marco for some interesting story information. He mentions
using a ďsupercoolentĒ to calm the volcanoís fires...apparently he
doesnít think you have what it takes to save the island yourself! Heís
located in a small alcove to the left of the Fire Spirit statue. You
canít interact with the crops on the altar, but you can gaze upon them
and notice the crops you provided are all there. When youíre all done
conversing and are ready to end the festival, speak with Marcia again
and sheíll see you back home. The villagerís are so thankful you
attended the festival that they gift you with 2 more harvest baskets and
1 additional seed bag! Youíll also receive a rather large increase to
your human stats afterwards. Your Challenge, Creativity, and
Intelligence will increase by 5 points and your Love and Humor will
increase by 10 points! A very big day indeed!

*************************
    Monday, Spring 29
*************************

After a very exciting weekend youíre greeted to another fairly boring
week on the farm. Thereís not a whole lot to do besides continuing to
harvest crops, pick wild mushrooms, mine some ore, and work on upgrading
your various tools if youíre so inclined. However, make sure to watch
the next episode of Cooking Life today! This will be the 5th episode and
that means youíre halfway done with learning all there is to know about
cooking! This week Dorothy will teach you all about juice and youíll
learn recipes for your ďCutting DrinksĒ selection.

Thereís an update you can get for Libertaís Dictionary if you are aiming
to complete it. Grab your dictionary, head into town and get yourself to
the Town Hall. Speak to Liberta whose still sitting in the back row of
chairs and heíll congratulate you for completing the spring crop list!
Heíll add some new words to the dictionary for you to enjoy. You can
actually complete this small event any time after youíve shipped all 6
of the spring crops. Since you can see what you are missing if you
inspected the altar at the festival carefully, youíll know that if you
saw all 6 crops that youíll have shipped everything.

Also, if youíve been diligently watering your crops you may have already
received your second star for your watering can! If you have gotten you
watering can to level 2 you can now go and receive a new one. Head on
over to speak with a woman named Masami. She can be found at either the
bar (which opens in the evenings) or in the house located behind
Millionís store (the one directly connected to the store, not the town
hall.) Speak to her in either location and sheíll make a comment about
how you must be using your watering can a lot recently. Sheíll then give
you <Masamiís Watering Can.> You can continue to water your plants with
Dr. Hopeís old can if you prefer though this can is a definite upgrade.

When you enter your room anytime after 16:00 tonight, youíll be greeted
by Marcia. She tells you that she ran away from home and then lets you
know she was just kidding. When she asks you if you were surprised you
can answer either YES or NO, neither one affects the outcome of her
visit. She then informs you of a stray kitten that can be found across
the swinging bridge. The exact location is past the telephone trees and
along the path leading to the mushroom forest. Marcia wants to take care
of it but because of her families allergies sheís unable too. She then
asks you if you could take care of it for her. Answer YES if you want to
take care of kitty. She also lets you know that the kitty may not be
very friendly and that youíll have to talk to it multiple times before
itíll become your friend. Talking with Marcia will give you a slight
stat increase!

*******************************************
  Tuesday, Summer 30 - Saturday, Spring 34
*******************************************

If you decided to help Marciaís stray kitten, weíre going to get started
doing so today! There are two ways to get this stray kitty to become
friends with you: the normal way and the fast way. Iíll start with the
normal way.

NORMAL WAY: For this way what youíll need to do is first find kitty!
Youíre looking for an orange cat and she can be found in the area across
from the swinging bridge. Once youíre in this area, walk to the right
towards the telephone trees...if you donít see her amongst the trees
themselves, try looking closer to the East Mushroom Forest along the
path that leads to it. Once you find the kitty, talk to her. Sheíll
greet you with a skeptic meow. You may now leave kitty alone and go
about your business for the day. When tomorrow comes, rinse and repeat.
Find kitty and talk to her again only this day youíll be greeted with a
slightly less suspicious meow meow. Leave kitty be and go about your day
as usual. On Thursday, go and seek the cat and speak with her for a
third time. Sheís even friendlier today and gives you a meow meow meow!
Leave her be and continue your day like always. Now, on Friday when you
go out and speak to kitty, youíll be happy to know sheís friendly enough
for you to adopt! You can even choose a new name for her! Starting
tomorrow, your new pet will begin living in the ruins entrance. Congrats
on your first pet!

FAST WAY: Do you need to have a pet right this second and canít wait
another day?! Well...donít! This way allows you to get your very own
kitty same day guaranteed! Remember, youíre looking for an orange cat
and she can be found in the area across from the swinging bridge. Once
youíre in this area, walk to the right towards the telephone trees...if
you donít see her amongst the trees themselves, try looking closer to
the East Mushroom Forest along the path that leads to it. Once you find
the kitty talk to her. Sheíll greet you with a skeptic meow. Now, enter
the Mushroom Forest. Once there, turn right back around and leave the
forest ending up back in the area with the telephone trees and kitty.
Speak to the cat once again, afterwards enter the mushroom forest. Rinse
and repeat until you get the message that the cat is friendly enough to
adopt! Give a name to your kitty and BAM youíre done!
Starting tomorrow, your new pet will begin living in the ruins entrance.
Congrats on your first pet!

Either way will get you your very first pet though one way is just more
drawn out then the other. Honestly, since this week is going to be
fairly boring you may want to become friends with the cat the normal way
just so youíll have something different to do until the weekend >_<

For the rest of the week, simply continue on like you have been with
harvesting, planting, upgrading and mining. Summerís coming fast and
with it a whole ton more things to accomplish so get in all the rest you
can now!

*****************************
      Sunday, Spring 35
*****************************

Well, itís your last Sunday in spring! Complete any chores you may have
on your farm and then make your way to Dr. Hopeís for your weekly
maintenance. After you check out A-OK as usual, Dr. Hope mentions that
he has a present for you. He presents to you, youíre brand new helper
robot: Forte. His weapons are deactivated so you donít have to worry
about his previous battlebot experience. He then goes on to let you know
all of what Forte can do. While he canít till the soil or harvest crops
he can water them and pick up anything useless lying about in your
fields (like weeds and poop.) He then asks you if the name Forte is an
alright name for the robot. You can choose your own name for your robot
if you donít like what Dr. Hope has picked out though he will be
disappointed if you change Forteís name too something else. When Dr.
Hope is done speaking with you, talk to Forte (you canít leave until you
do anyways.) Heíll ask you if you want to go to the ruins and you really
have no choice but to say YES. You both will arrive at the ruins where
Forte will start ďscanningĒ the area. You cannot start giving Forte
commands until tomorrow because the scanning takes an entire day.

Note: I would honestly recommend NOT using Forte right away. While the
robot is extremely helpful and can save you a lot of time watering and
clearing the land...I believe itís more important to upgrade your tools
and then utilize Forteís abilities afterwards. This is extremely
important when it comes to the watering can, though I leave the choice
up to you.

After youíre done with your appointment, I would recommend making one
last stop at Millionís store and purchasing any last batches of spring
seeds. While this isnít critical, it will save you having to run over
here come spring of next year when you could just go to your storage
room and start planting immediately. Thatís just my two cents *shrugs*

*****************************
      Monday, Summer 1
*****************************

The first day of summer and already things are kicking off to a great
start! When you wake up this morning, youíll notice that Max is standing
by the elevator. Go and speak with him to find out that the villagers
have finally completed the bridge that was out! And, because theyíre
such nice guys, they even crafted a raft to help you get across the
river easier. You can find the raft along the bank with all the strange
moss right outside the ruins and to the left.

Donít forget to watch this weekís addition of Cooking Life! This episode
contains new recipes for the ďBoiling <Advanced>Ē selection. I find itís
always easier to make sure I watch the latest show first thing in the
morning since the rest of the day is usually hectic.

However, since itís the first day of the season, weíve got some planting
to do before any exploring. Try to not use any strange moss or your
robot to do the watering this season, and although it maybe tough, the
result will be well worth your pain I promise you! Prepare the land
according to how youíd like and then head over to Millionís store and
pick up some seeds unique to this season. There are currently 6 crop
seeds that you can select from the store and my suggestion is to pick up
at least 1 of each kind. This will help complete another objective in
finishing Libertaís Dictionary. Because youíll start experiencing island
storms, make sure to leave 10-15% of you field untilled to ensure you
donít experience more than you need too. Also, due to the storms, youíll
want to be cautious of which crops you choose to continue planting as
some are hardier in storms than others. Lots to think about today!


*****************************
      Tuesday, Summer 2
*****************************

After taking care of any chores you may have on your farm (planting new
seeds, watering, weeding out dead plants etc...) proceed down to the
area where you found a bunch of strange moss (to the left of the blue
door which is to the left of Francoís house.) Youíll see a little raft
there and when you approach it, youíll receive a question of whether or
not youíd like to travel to the other side. Say YES to start exploring
the lakes other bank!

When you arrive on the other bank, take a moment to admire the fixed
bridge on your right. Iíd say it was very nicely done and looks much
better then that scary broken one.

Moving forward, youíll notice a large hot springs and you know it
wouldnít be a true Harvest Moon game without one of those beauties! If
you face the hot springs, and begin moving to the right, you should see
a faint dirt path that leads down a small slope into another area. This
new area doesnít have much in the way of anything other than a few fruit
trees that cannot be harvested at this time. Leave here and proceed back
to the hot springs area.

Walking now to the left of the hot springs, youíll notice a cave
entrance. Letís skip that for now and continue walking to the left.
Eventually, you should see a path leading north; this will be on the
other side of the cave entrance. In this area, youíll immediately notice
several large branches that seem to have fallen across the path. If you
read the sign to the left of where you entered, it only confirms your
suspicions; the road is closed until the branches are removed. Youíll
need to remember this location for later.

Leave this area and now enter the cave opening. Once inside this
greenish cave, proceed to the right. Take some time to explore this cave
fully, making sure to check every nook and cranny for stairs and doors.
Youíll find a bunch of locations where you can mine for ore as well as a
few treasure chests that you should open when you see them! Below is a
list of the treasure chests you can find in this section of the cave:

[] Yellow Jewel
[] Blue Jewel
[] Yellow Jewel
[] Blue Jewel

After picking up these items, you can either spend the rest of the day
mining (if you brought your hammer) or you can go straight back to your
farm to set these latest jewels onto the pedestals. You should now have
4 yellow jewels and I highly advise you to select a farm plot that you
would like to unlock and place the 4 yellow jewels there. After placing
the complete set of yellow jewels, you will unlock the yellow sealed
doors around the island. The doors will not be officially unlocked until
tomorrow morning so get to sleep! Youíll receive a stat increase after
placing all 4 yellow jewels when you head to sleep tonight.

*****************************
     Wednesday, Summer 3
*****************************

In the morning, head up to your farm to watch the unlocking of the farm
plot you selected the night before. Each of the 4 yellow jewels will
shine and youíll have a brand new plot to farm on! But, more
importantly, now that youíve unlocked the field, all of the yellow doors
that were previously sealed are now unlocked! And if you noticed in your
cave exploration yesterday, there happened to be 2 yellow doors that
were locked. Guess where youíre headed today after your chores? :)

Make your way back to the cave we were in yesterday. When you enter the
cave, walk along the top portion of the area and make your way to the
right, until you enter a new area. Here, move right and step through the
now unlocked yellow door. Follow the path around until you have an
opportunity to head down and to the left (like a tiny switchback.)
Youíll see another chest here, so open it and discover:

[] Blue Jewel

This is youíre 4th blue jewel! When you get back to your farm make sure
and select another plot of land that youíd like to begin farming on and
do exactly what you did yesterday and place all 4 blue jewels on the
pedestals. If you continue following the path to the right and out,
youíll find yourself in the middle of a fierce sandstorm. Since you
canít see anything, youíll be forced back into the cave. Remember this
location for later!

Now I know you may have seen another yellow door in this cave, and you
would be correct. There is one small caveat and that is...even though
itís a yellow door and weíve placed all the yellow jewels...the door
will not open because, weíre facing the wrong side of it >_< Howís that
for a teaser, eh? Weíll have to leave this door alone for now and unless
you plan on doing a little mining while youíre here, I would suggest
running home and placing that blue jewel ASAP. After figuring out which
plot youíd next like to have available for use, place your 4 blue
jewels. Doing so will open a TON of new places for us to explore from
tomorrow on. Head to bed when youíre through with the day and youíll
receive another stat increase for placing all 4 of the blue jewels.

****************************
     Thursday, Summer 4
****************************

In the morning, head up to your farm to watch the unlocking of the farm
plot you selected the night before. Each of the 4 blue jewels will shine
and youíll have a brand new plot to farm on! But, more importantly, now
that youíve unlocked the field, all of the blue doors that were
previously sealed are now unlocked! There are a couple very important
blue doors that are now available to us which weíll explore in just a
second. First though, take care of your crops and anything else on your
farm because today is going to be a very busy one!

Letís first take a look see at two blue doors inside the storage area of
the ruins. These doors are both located along the bottom of the screen,
one on the right and the other on the left. Letís check out the left
door first. Inside, youíll notice see some machines and...Whatís this?!
Sheep designs on the floor? Yes, thatís correct; you can now start your
ranching career in addition to your farming! This is where any sheep you
purchase will live. If you leave here and check out the other door,
youíll notice more machines; all the cows and chickens you purchase will
live here.

If youíre as excited as I am, then I suggest heading upstairs to your
room and turning on the TV. Select the World Ranch channel to receive a
message of congratulations on breaking the blue seal! After a brief
introduction, youíll be taken to a menu where you can purchase some
livestock. Only chickens are available for purchase right now so go
ahead and buy one! Unfortunately, buying a chicken cannot be done quite
yet either because you seem to be missing an item known as the Cluck-O-
Matic which turns out to be a robot helper for chickens! The ranch guide
suggests you speak with someone knowledgeable in the ways of ranching. I
believe we know someone that fits that description!

Before we make a venture into town, letís first check out that other
blue door, which (you may remember) is located outside the ruins and to
the left of Francoís house. Once you enter this room youíll notice a ton
of yellow vending machines lined up across the back wall. Inspecting
each vending machine will yield information on certain items inside of
it; you can also simply check the icon above the vending machine to see
whatís inside (seeds machines will have a seed icon and parts machines
will have a part icon.) I suggest you pick up a few different seeds
(since you canít buy some of these in Millionís store!) and plant them
to help you finish your items list as well as completing more objectives
for Libertaís Dictionary.

Once youíre done with buying any new seeds, head back outside. Walk over
to Moonlightís house and you should see a blue buggy parked outside of
it.

Note: If the buggy isnít there, simply walk into the ruins and then out
again until it shows up.

This is the best present you could ever hope to get as it will cut your
transportation around the island in half! This buggy is yours to keep
and no matter where you leave the buggy, it will always re-appear right
here the very next day.

Inspect the buggy and read the note that Dr. Hope has attached to it. He
first congratulates you on breaking the blue seal and restates that by
doing so new places will be open to you. He then hints at some story
locations that he (and I also believe) you should investigate. He would
like you to travel through the desert and across the plains to speak
with an old woman living near Mermaid Lake. The doctor believes this
woman may know about the Water Spirit. He also confirms what you may
have already guessed, that the blinding sandstorm we encountered the
other day has now vanished.

But donít let me tell you whatís what! Letís take your buggy for a spin
and since we need to head into town anyways, you now have a destination!
Approach your buggy and get in by pressing triangle and ride in style
straight over to town. Once there, weíre going to be headed to the
ranch. If you donít know where the ranch is just follow the road like
you would to go to Millions and along the right side you should see a
rather large white arch with a golden bell atop it. Go through the arch
and then follow the dirt path around the house towards the barn. When
you get to the barn (which resembles a greenhouse imo) speak with the
man directly inside. His name is Jonathon and heíll give you his old
cluck-o-matic since he doesnít use it anymore. He mentions that heíll
send it over tomorrow and you can start raising your very own chickens!

If you have any other business in town you might as well accomplish it
while youíre here, otherwise head back to the farm and start planting
those new seeds (if you picked any up of course.)

Note: If youíre ever low on PP and happen to be in town, stop by Dr.
Hopeís and step inside the shine pod. It will automatically restore your
PP to full! You can also spend the night here (upstairs in the bedroom
across from the stairs) if you need to start your day near town.

I would recommend spending the rest of today planting some new crops as
weíll start exploring the island more thoroughly tomorrow. However, if
you picked up any rose seeds, hold on before planting them until after
the 8th. Your first storm will hit this day and roses are a very
delicate plant. Being so fragile means they will usually get wiped out
during the storm, everything else though has a much better chance to
survive the storm so, plant how you see fit. Youíll receive another stat
increase when you go to bed this evening.

*****************************
      Friday, Summer 5
*****************************

First things first, when you get up this morning, turn on your TV and
order at least one chicken! You of course can buy more if you so choose,
though only one is needed. Why only one? Well in the event youíre
looking to complete all your recipes, youíll need to ship one mayonnaise
and mayonnaise comes from chicken eggs hence youíll need at least one
chicken. If you donít like chickens, sell it after youíve shipped a mayo
as it doesnít affect the game play.

After buying your new clucker (which will arrive tomorrow by the way)
you should head up to your farm and do your daily chores. Make sure you
grab your scale pack because weíre headed into the desert! Jump in your
buggy and cross the swinging bridge and make your way to the cave we
were just in. Once in the cave head to the right and pass through the
yellow door, continue on until you end up outside in the desert.

Youíve reached the desert! First, letís pick up a new fruit by heading
south out of the cave mouth. A tree here will contain fruit called
ďpepinoĒ and since you brought your scale pack, you can go right ahead
and pick some. Travel to the right a little ways and then head south to
arrive in the Heartflame Dunes.

Once here, proceed south a little and you should see, to your right, a
rather large tent. Head on inside and youíll meet a man simply
introduced as the Fisherman. Speak with him to learn how to fish. The
Fishermanís tent contains two very important items; the first as you may
have seen is a shine pod! Apparently Dr. Hope isnít the only one that
owns one of these. Just like Dr. Hopeís shine pod, this one will also
restore your PP to full when you step inside it. The other useful
feature this tent offers is the ability to spend the night. Inspect one
of the beds and youíll have the option to sleep here and save as well!
When youíre ready step outside the tent and back into the Dunes. Travel
south from the tent and you should come across another one of
Moonlightís pedestals called ďDesert Moon.Ē Make sure and read its
description to update Libertaís Dictionary! When this is done, take any
one of the paths at the north end of the Dunes to return to the
sandstorm area.

From this area, travel to the upper right hand side of the screen to
venture into the Heartflame Plains. There are two paths to take here and
the first one weíll explore is the rightmost path. This path will lead
you into the pasture where you can later ride some wild horses. Youíll
also find the Fisherman here along a ledge overlooking the ocean at the
right of the screen. Speak with him to do a little fishing if you want.
Time doesnít pass when youíre fishing making this a nice relaxing
endeavor. One last interesting thing to take note of; at the very north
end of the pasture you may catch a glimpse of some windmills. Head that
direction and youíll find the 6th and final Moonlight pedestal! Read the
pedestals description and complete this objective for Libertaís
Dictionary. After thoroughly exploring this area, head back into the
Plains and take the other path that leads to the north.

Youíre now on the Southeast bank of Mermaid Lake and in what appears to
be a tropical area. Right in front of you are 2 new trees to gather
fruit from (banana and rambutan) so, what are you waiting for? After
doing so, head into the run down shack and meet the old woman Dr. Hope
mentioned in his letter. Speak to the Hermit and sheíll ask if you were
looking for her, answer YES and sheíll introduce herself. She mentions
the reason she decided to live in this particular area was because of
its warm climate. She lets you know sheís been living here for over 150
years! She then warns you that the same could happen to you if you stay
in the area too long. Because sheís such a nice lady, she opens up the
path to the left of the hot springs...remember, thatís the path that was
currently blocked by those large fallen branches. We have our next
destination!

If youíve managed to get everything done today, itís probably near (or
past!) 18:00. There are a few more new areas to explore around the
Hermitís hut but weíll have to come back another time. You can either
head back home or you can spend the night at the Fishermanís tent back
in the Dunes. OR if you managed to pick one up and carry it with you,
you have the third option of pitching a tent of your own and sleeping
there! Just remember that if you spend the night outside your ruins,
youíll wake up where you made camp. That may not sound like a big deal
to you now, but when you realize you still have to get home and water
those crops...see where Iím going with this?

*****************************
     Saturday, Summer 6
*****************************

Assuming you went home after the events of last night, Iíd suggest the
first thing you do this morning is go check on your new chicken(s) that
you purchased yesterday. The chicken portion of the storage room is on
the left hand side when you enter the room and is indicated by the pink
conveyer belt. Approach the belt and remove one egg from it, turn
sharply to your left and place it into the mayonnaise maker. Make sure
to ship this mayo as it adds another dish for you to create under the
salad recipes! Wondering where your chicken(s) are? If you walk to the
upper left of this room you may see a blue door which you find out leads
to an outside grazing area. Make sure to talk to your animals each and
every day as a happy animal produces higher quality produce and will
sell for more if thatís something you decide to do.

After checking on your chicken(s) complete any other farm work before
heading out today. Iíd like to spend today exploring the rest of the
Mermaid Lake area. Make your way all the way back to the area where the
Hermit lives. Once there, head left into a new area. This area is called
Mermaid Lake and if you peer into the distance youíll see in the
background a glimpse of the mermaidís tower! There is also a new tree
here (papaya) that you should absolutely pick at least one fruit from
and ship it as itís another item that yields a new dish for you to make,
this time under the fruit desert section. There are two exists here, one
to the south (which you must get out of your buggy to access!) and
another over on the left side of the area. Letís check the left area
first.

This area is known as the southwestern bank of Mermaid Lake. There is a
new tree waiting to be harvested here as well (cacao) so make sure to
pick up a fruit or two! The most notable mention in this area is a cave
to the far left side of the screen. You can check it out now if youíd
like however, you wonít get very far as a sealed purple door prevents
you from venturing further inside. For now let the cave be and remember
itís location for later. Leave this area and head back to Mermaid Lake
and this time take the south most path.

Youíll arrive in the South: Mushroom Forest, where a whole bunch of
different varieties of mushrooms await you. You will find a total of 5
different mushrooms to pick from so try and get a sampling of each
before leaving here! Iím sure itís probably late in the day already
(doesnít seem like it though huh?) so letís head back to the ruins.

*****************************
      Sunday, Summer 7
*****************************

Another day for maintenance! Complete and chores you may have on your
farm, check on your chickens then make your way over to Dr. Hopes.

When you arrive at the good doctorís, he announces that the mayor is
going to stop by for a visit. The mayor wants to discuss an application
regarding Forte, youíre helper robot. At this point, Dr. Hope leaves to
check if the mayor has arrived yet. Marcia walks in at this point and
points out that it must be hard getting examined every week like you do.
She then asks you if you happen to be sick, answer NO to this question
(answering yes yields the same results.) Vita barges into the
conversation and conveniently mentions that there are goodies in the
kitchen for you to munch on.

You and Marcia head towards the kitchens, but not before Marcia over
hears the doctor and the mayor talking in the parlor. She decides to
eavesdrop on the conversation. The mayor and Dr. Hope go over the fact
that as long as Forte doesnít leave your farm that he can stay. The
mayor then mentions that heís now heard everything, a robot helping a
robot. He corrects himself by saying that our hero isnít a ďrobotĒ but
an Innocent Life. Marcia gasps as she realizes that youíre not human as
she originally thought and wonders at what an ďInnocent LifeĒ is? Vita
then steps in and tells her that an Innocent Life is a manifestation of
the doctorís hopes and dreams. The Doctor wanted to create a life form
that was innocent and pure, something that could love people and not
hate them and as a result, our hero was born.

Marcia doesnít really understand everything but she believes that our
hero has a good heart and doesnít shun him for being a robot. Vita
agrees, stating that our hero and Marcia as very much alike in that they
both experience hope and dreams and happen to be good people. The mayor
then steps out and questions why Marcia happens to be standing outside
the room. She then leaves with the mayor as Dr. Hope decides to see
whatís going on. He asks you if everythingís alright and Vita lets him
know all is well. You then receive a rather large increase to your stats
as you begin to realize your true nature!

Note: If you havenít already received the buggy (I donít know how that
would be possible but...) speak with the doctor again afterwards and
heíll inform you that there is a present waiting for you outside the
ruins. But if youíve been following along, you should have it by now and
if you speak with him about it, heíll just be slightly disappointed that
he wasnít there to see your reaction to his gift.

I donít know about you but I think weíve waited long enough to go
exploring the path the Hermit has opened for us donít you think? Head
over there when youíre all done at the doctorís. When you get to the
place where the fallen braches are, youíll begin walking towards then
and they will suddenly start retracting right in front of your eyes!
When you can move again, continue forward and into the cave mouth. Once
inside, take a look at the map and youíll notice this area is kinda
shaped like a large square. There are two exits here, one to the right
side of the room and the other to the north. Below are the items you can
find in this section of the cave:

[] Master Axe
[] Red Jewel
[] Master Hoe

If you choose to enter the area to the north of the square room, youíll
find yourself in a forest surrounded by a fog. If you try to proceed
deeper into this area, you will be informed that you canít continue
because the mist is too thick. This area becomes very important later,
so remember its location!

If you choose to go through the right exit of the square room, youíll
enter a very green room with trees and moss growing about. The area is
also very curvy and has multiple exits. Below are the items you can find
in this section:

[] Blue Jewel
[] Volcano Sickle
[] Red Jewel

If you take the south most exit, youíll find yourself inside the first
cave youíve ever been in! You know...the one you had to use the <Grain
Family Key> to open? Youíre now standing on the other side of the purple
door. Since you canít open it right now, simply step back into the curvy
room.

The right most exit is currently blocked by another sealed purple door.
Weíll have to come back and investigate this one later.

If you take the upper right exit, youíll find yourself in an area in
which the camera takes on a side scrolling view. Walking to the right,
youíll notice a sealed green door. Below are the items you can find in
this section:

[] Red Jewel

Exiting through the only other exit to the right, youíll find yourself
in a new area, this time with paths going to the upper right and one
that curves around to the lower left. Below are the items you can find
in this section:

[] Earth Power Sand

If you choose to take the lower left path, youíll find yourself back in
the curvy room at the top left most exit.

If you decide to take the upper right exit, youíll find yourself in a
circular room that has no exits save the one you just came through.
Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Earth Power Sand
[] Yellow Jewel
[] Purple Jewel

Note: If at any time you run out of space to carry things in your
backpack, donít worry, youíll get the option to send the item you
currently want to put in your pack, straight into your item box back at
the ruins!

If youíve been watching the weather channel as of late, youíll have
learned that tomorrow is going to be a storm; your first in fact!
Tonight when you go to bed, I would suggest you select the option to
wake up early tomorrow as you may have crops that needs harvesting (like
your tomatoes) and youíll want to get those picked as soon as possible.

*****************************
      Monday, Summer 8
*****************************

Youíll wake up nice and early today and will be greeted with hurricane
force winds, lightening, thunder and heavy rain the instant you walk
outdoors. You may also notice that youíll be walking at half your normal
speed! Donít think you can remedy this by taking the buggy however, as
traveling in it will also be slowed by half its usual speed. Storms are
nasty business and youíll want to avoid them at all possible costs.

Go ahead and harvest anything that needs it and make sure to check in on
your animals. Today you can pretty much do whatever it is that youíd
like. I would suggest that if you havenít finished up exploring the cave
we were in yesterday, to do so today, even if your travel time to the
cave will be slow, once youíre inside the cave youíll move at your
regular speed.

If youíre not planning on exploring the cave (or have already explored
to your hearts content) I have an optional visit into town that you may
want to check out if youíre interested in raising some sheep. Just like
the cluck-o-matic, if you want to raise some sheep youíll need a robot
helper. Head into town and speak with Jonathon once again (the same guy
that gave you your cluck-o-matic) and heíll mention that youíre now
tending chickens on your farm. He lets you know that heís going to give
you a baabaa-o-matic and that itíll arrive at your house tomorrow.

Also, today being Monday and all, make sure to watch Cooking Life for
this weekís valuable lesson in creating fine foods. Today, Dorothy is
going to teach you the art of ďGrillingĒ so pay attention!

****************************
     Tuesday, Summer 9
****************************

The day after any storm can be disheartening for a farmer as youíll now
see what damage the high winds and rain have done to your crops. But
before we make the rounds of the farm you maybe interested to know that
you can now purchase sheep to add to your growing livestock collection!
Just as before, approach the TV and watch the World Ranch channel.
Select the buy livestock option and buy a sheep or two if youíd like.
Remember though, unlike the chickens any sheep you buy will be kept in
the storage roomís lower left area. Just like the chickens however,
youíll still need to give your fluffy new sheep attention, so make sure
to brush them every day!

Once youíre ready to see the disarray of your crops, head up to your
farm. You may have a little crop damage or you may have a huge amount,
regardless, clean up your fields as best you can and start replanting
what youíve lost. If you held onto those rose seeds like I suggested you
do, now would be a good time to plant them and hopefully they will
survive to maturity before the next storm blows in.

For today, I recommend some time in town buying new seeds (or you can
purchase more through the vending machines at the ruins), picking up
another ďmaticĒ, this time for cows, and stopping in at the town hall to
speak with Liberta. Make sure you grab the dictionary before leaving for
town!

First head into Millionís store and purchase any seeds that youíd like
to replace on your farm. Once thatís done, head to the town hall and
speak with Liberta to have some new words added to your dictionary.
Finally, pay a visit at the ranch and once again speak with Jonathon.
Heíll be impressed that youíve managed to purchase a sheep and will then
inform you that heíll deliver a Moo-O-Matic to your farm tomorrow! This
is the third and final ďmaticĒ youíll receive in the game.

*****************************
     Wednesday, Summer 10
*****************************

Since we picked up our Moo-O-Matic yesterday, you can now begin to
purchase cows! Just as before, approach the TV and watch the World Ranch
channel. Select the buy livestock option and buy a cow or two if youíd
like. You will receive a new option at this point asking you if youíd
like Jersey or Holstein cows. Jersey cows are brown in color and
Holsteins are black and white and thatís the only difference between the
two. Your cows will be kept in the same area as the chickens though they
will graze in their own pasture which can be found through another set
of blue doors opposite the ones you exit to visit with your chickens.
Also, just like the chickens, youíll still need to give your brand new
cow attention, so make sure to brush them every day! Whichever cow you
choose (or maybe youíll choose both!) they will arrive on your farm
tomorrow.

If youíd like, there is an optional trip into town you can make to learn
how to ride a wild horse. Jump in you buggy and head to town. Once
there, drive over to the ranch and speak with Jonathon. Heíll ask how
youíre doing with raising all those animals and then heíll question you
on seeing any wild horses roaming the plains. Heíll make a comment that
the Fisherman seems to know how to reach the horses with a special
whistle. Shall we go find out?

Jump back in you buggy and make your way all the way to the plains. The
Fisherman should be sitting along the ledge overlooking the sea if not,
check his tent. Speak with the Fisherman and heíll ask you if youíd like
to learn how to whistle. Select YES and heíll teach you how. He then
mentions that the horses are generally happiest during midday and
evening hours which means, if you plan on going for a ride, those are
the times in which to do so. If youíd like to try out your new talent,
approach one of the large brown horses and ďspeakĒ to it. Youíll hear a
pretty little tune and then youíll find yourself riding a horse! Even
though youíll just ride in circles, itís a pretty relaxing activity for
one that lives a tough farmerís life.

Thatís all you can accomplish for today, so when youíve had enough of
riding, head back home to the ruins and get some sleep. At this point in
the game, I had reached 100 points in Challenge; this may or may not
vary from your game.

********************************************
 Thursday, Summer 11 - Saturday, Summer 13
********************************************

When Thursday morning rolls around, make sure to head down to the room
that holds both your chickens and cows. Go to the blue cow conveyer belt
and pick up the milk that is there, turn to your right and throw it into
the cheese maker. Make sure to ship this cheese as it adds an entry in
your ďOther itemsĒ section! If youíre looking for your cows, they can
either be found inside the room itself or if you exit through another
set of blue doors to the right of the room, youíll find yourself in your
cow pasture where your cows may be hiding.

Other than that small tidbit, the rest of this week is yours to do with
as you see fit. Clean up your farm, harvest your crops, brush your
animals, try your luck at fishing, or go harvesting for wild plants, the
choices are yours to make!

*****************************
      Sunday, Summer 14
*****************************

After another week on the farm, itís time to return to Dr. Hope for your
check up. Take care of anything you need to get done and then make your
way to his house.

This week Dr. Hope has a little surprise for you. He announces that
Gayakís dog has had puppies and that Gayak is willing to let you have
one of them. Gayak then steps inside and confirms that his dog has given
birth and that he wants you to have one of her puppies. He lets you know
that your puppy will arrive at your farm tomorrow. He then tells you he
went ahead and named the puppy for you and is calling it, Chocobi. If
youíd like to change the name simply reply NO to his question of whether
or not you approve the name he picked out. Congratulations on your new
puppy!

Thatís all the excitement for today.

********************************************
  Monday, Summer 15 - Saturday, Summer 20
********************************************

This week is just your ordinary week on the farm and you may do what you
wish. Donít forget to watch a new Cooking Life episode on Monday to
learn more about grilling and to receive new recipes under the ďGrilling
<Advanced>Ē heading.

The mock strawberry bushes and the fig and peach trees are now ready to
be harvested on the 15th.

*****************************
      Sunday, Summer 21
*****************************

Just like always, once youíre done with your morning chores, head over
to Dr. Hopes house for your weekly inspection. After you step in the
shine pod and everything checks out, the doctor will comment that itís
certainly been a hot summer and he doesnít envy you for having to work
in the fields. (Lazy...good-for-nothing...) AHEM! Masami will enter just
as you were about to leave. Apparently the doctor was expecting her and
she comments that sheís got something to ask of you as well as a story
to tell.

Seems as though the rumors about the volcano erupting were actually
true, though no ones knows just when it will blow. Also, some
corporation (by the name of Banks) is starting to begin construction
soon...a double blow indeed!

Masami wonders if youíve already seen the old woman over by the mermaid
lake. Then she goes on to tell you that there are three spirits that
live on the island and they are the Water, Forest and Fire Spirits. The
anger of the Fire spirit is whatís threatening the volcanoís impending
eruption. But Masami is certain that the other two spirits (Water and
Forest) are happy that youíve been trying to restore the island.
However, she continues to say that the Fire spiritís anger has been
provoked in such a manner that it can only continue to grow stronger!

Itís her belief that the only way to stop the Fire Spirit is with the
Water Spiritís help. At this point Masami gives you a <Red Jewel> making
this your 4th red jewel at this point. Masami wants to you to open the
red sealed door thatís currently locked at the entrance of the Easter
Ruins. She states that deep inside the ruins is a Crest of the Water
Spirit which you must then later bring to the Hermit by the mermaid
lake. Dr. Hope at this point sends the red jewel to your item box back
at your farm.

Dr. Hope further explains that Masami is a descendant of the original
Easter people. He goes on to tell a story about them. He says that a
long time ago the Easter people wanted to defeat their enemies (the
Volcano people) so badly that they went and stole the Water Spiritís
crest in hopes to use its power against their enemies. They tricked the
Forest Spirit into letting them enter the mermaid lake tower and took
the crest from there. However, being as they were only humans, they
could not control the power of a spirit crest. The three spirits sealed
off the land and since the Easter people were farmers...they couldnít
harvest from the land and eventually died off. The Water Spirit sealed
the Forest Spirit for allowing humans to trick him. He concludes with
his apparent guilt for having to rely on you to save the island.

At this point you can continue the day, mining, fishing, and
farming...whatever your daily routine is. BUT donít forget, once you
arrive back at your farm; make sure to pick a new plot of land to
release and place the four red jewels just like before. Tomorrow starts
your adventure through the red door to the north of the ruins entrance!

*****************************
      Monday, Summer 22
*****************************

After you wake up donít forget to first go up to your farm to watch the
unlocking of your new red farm plot! Also, just because this is an
exploration day, doesnít mean you can forget about your crops and
animals! Not to mention that you should watch Cooking Life before you
get too absorbed with exploring!!!! This weekís episode instructs you on
how to bake. Only one more episode to go before youíre a cooking master!

Once youíve taken care of your farm and animals, use your elevator to go
down to the ruins entrance. Walk around the other side of the elevator
and enter the newly unlocked red door. Once youíre in this new area,
youíll notice that there are 4 doors to open here...2 on your left hand
side and 2 on your right hand side. Unfortunately, the upper right door
is locked by an orange seal...Looks like youíll have to come back later
once youíve collected 4 orange jewels. The other 3 doors however are
free to open and explore.

Choosing the lower left door will have you winding around some stone
walls until you come to a lone chest. You may have noticed the orange
door in passing but weíll have to return once weíve found 4 orange
jewels. Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Easter Hammer

Choosing the upper left door will have you winding around some more
stone walls until you each a stair case leading up. After going up the
stairway, continue to your right until you see another staircase. Before
you go up it though, you should continue to the right until you find
another chest. Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Purple Jewel

After going up this staircase, youíll have the option of diverting to
the left path or the right. Explore this floor thoroughly since itís
quite large. There is a stairway leading down in the upper left corner
of this area. Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Orange Jewel

This new area has many stone dividers which might make this floor
confusing. There are two stairways you could choose to make your way
towards; one on the right side of the room and the other in the center.
Work your way to the center stairway to head back upstairs. Below are
the items you can find in this section:

[] Purple Jewel
[] Red Jewel

[] Red Jewel

The center stairway leading up has you first following a short path to
the right before you enter a room with a raised pedestal. The lone chest
here contains a very important item. Below are the items you can find in
this section:

[] Water Crest

If however you choose the right most stairway, which also leads up,
youíll find yourself in an area that has a lot of bones lying about.
Thereís even a room that almost resembles a study of sorts, with a plush
carpet, table and chairs! Below are the items you can find in this
section:

[] 999 gold
[] Green Jewel
[] Angel Ribbon


When you go through the third available door back at the entrance,
youíll find yourself once again winding around stone walls until you
come to a lone chest. Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Orange Jewel

You can explore the cave at your leisure, though it shouldnít take more
then 2 days max to accomplish (One day if youíre really fast!) Make sure
to try and find everything this cave has to currently offer! Tomorrow
weíll go and present the Water Crest to the hermit at the mermaid lake!

*****************************
      Tuesday, Summer 23
*****************************

Once again, wake up and take care of your farm and animals first! Make
sure you have the Water Crest in your inventory before leaving the farm.
After doing so, head down your elevator to the ruins entrance and jump
in that buggy of yours and drive until you reach the Hermitís hut.

Upon reaching the Hermitís hut, present the Water Crest to her and
sheíll give you the Forest Crest in exchange. Now we must visit the
mermaid of mermaidís lake! From the hermits hut, travel to the west
(left 2 screens) until you enter the Southwestern Bank of Mermaid Lake.
Head to the base of the lake and get as close to the water as you can
while pressing the triangle button until you see the mermaid appear.
Once she does youíll show her the Forest Crest the hermit just gave you
and sheíll inform you that sheíll clear the mist blocking the way in the
giantís forest.

Since itís probably late in the day today, head back to your farm and
get some rest. Tomorrow weíll go and explore the newly opened path into
the Giantís Forest! However, if you wanted to make another brief stop
along the way back by the hermit sheíll present you with some
interesting news. It seems as though there is hope for the island after
all...that is...if you can calm the Fire Spiritís rage. Seems as though
youíll need to get the Fire Spiritís crest and place it on the Altar of
Ice but since we have no clue how to complete either of those objectives
right now all we can do is speculate.

*****************************
    Wednesday, Summer 24
*****************************

Wake up and take care of what you need to on your farm. Make sure you
have the forest crest in your inventory before leaving your farm! When
youíre ready head done to the ruins entrance and head over to the raft
this time and walk yourself over to the path leading into the cave that
was earlier cleared by the hermit (remember the fallen branch area?).
Once in the cave, head north and take the stairs down to reach the
Giantís forest!

Youíll notice that the mermaid was true to her word and cleared the mist
for you so you can continue on in your quest to save the island. Once
here, proceed forward into this new area and you will notice two
treasure chests once youíve made your way across a fallen log. Opening
the right most treasure chest will yield:

[] Monsoon Watering Can

However, when you try to open the other chest you get a message saying
thatís its held shut by a mysterious force...Looks like weíll have to
come back here later to open it.

Continue heading north deeper into the forest and enter a new area. In
this area head to your right at the first intersection and youíll notice
two harvest sprites standing here. Speaking with them informs you that
they are the Nature Sprite of Knowledge and the Nature Sprite of
Friendship. Theyíre currently lost in this forest and are unable to find
their way out because the Nature Sprite of Memory is currently no where
to be found! Incidentally, donít bother trying to open any of the other
chests in this area...they are all sealed tight by the same mysterious
force sealing the previous chest back by the fallen log.
You can explore this area if you wish however, at the present thereís
not much to do here.

After talking with the two nature sprites, I think it would be a good
idea to pay another visit to the Hermit seeing as though she seems
knowledgeable in all things spirit related.

Head back to the Hermit today if you still have time and listen to what
she has to say. She informs you that she already knows the Memory Sprite
will not appear and implies itís because of something that she did. She
says that he might show his face if he sees people being happy. Then she
tells you that sheíll be waiting for you in the mermaidís tower and
leaves through the wall! (Anyone else think thatís a bit...unnatural?).
If you leave and then re-enter the hut youíll notice that she also took
her four blue jewels with her.

What a mystery! Looks like weíll have more investigating to do in the
days ahead. For now however, itís probably really late in the day so
head home.

************************************************
   Thursday, Summer 25 - Saturday, Summer 27
************************************************

Well, itís back to the old farm routine. Harvest any crops you have and
make sure to take care of your animals. As a side note, if you didnít
manage to get a chance (with all the running around weíve been doing) to
collect any blueberries, theyíre in season now so go and grab a few for
your wild item list!

Also, there are 3 things that we can accomplish now that we have some
free time. The first is to go and speak with Liberta to update your
Dictionary. By now, if youíve decided to plant early, you should have
planted and harvested all 9 of the summer crops, thus completing yet
another objective for finishing Libertaís Dictionary! Donít forget to
bring the dictionary with you when you go to speak with Liberta!

Another thing you can accomplish is giving a present to a very special
lady. Remember that Angel Ribbon you picked up behind the red door in
the Easter Ruins? Well, that ribbon is used for another objective in
completing Libertaís Dictionary. IF you want to complete the dictionary,
you MUST give the Angel Ribbon to Emma. Emma works at the winery and can
be found sitting behind the desk on the upper floor (thatís the floor
you walk into the winery on.) You only need to speak to her with the
ribbon in your inventory to be able to give it to her. Say YES when she
asks if the ribbon is for her. If you donít care about completing the
dictionary, then you may give it to whom ever you want that happens to
be an eligible bachelorette (i.e. Sharon).

Lastly, you picked up the Easter Hammer correct? Well, if youíve be
mining or smashing small rocks on your farm then you may already be at
level 2 for your hammer. You must be at level 2 in order to even use the
Easter Hammer. Once you are able to use it, you can begin clearing your
farm of those large boulders. Itís another chore, but hey, maybe itíll
help keep you busy :)

*****************************
    Sunday, Summer 28
*****************************

Head over to Dr. Hopes after taking care of your farm and animals for
your weekly checkup. After everything checks out the doctor will tell
you that an accident happened in the cave that held the spring festival.
Apparently some of Marcoís coolant leaked into the cave and is spreading
fumes everywhere.

Talk to Vita and she informs you that Gallion had spoke with the doctor
about how to get rid of the fumes. Apparently the Dr. had mentioned that
planting herbs might help clear the air in the cave. Why donít we head
over to Gallionís house and speak with him about this? Wait until its 16
oíclock and then head into his house. His house is located right behind
Millionís supermarket.

Gallion will mention that he was as surprised as everyone about the
accident and continues to say that though the fumes arenít toxic...they
sure do stink! (So THATíS why no one wants to go in there...)He mentions
that he asked his son Million to start stocking Earth Power Sand and
herbs so that you can start purifying the cave once again.
Since the store wonít have anything for sale at this time of the day,
you might as well head home.

*****************************
    Monday, Summer 29
*****************************

Before we continue with the main story, Iíd just like to point out that
today is the FINAL episode of Cooking Life! Well, it is if youíve been
diligently watching as Iíve suggested anyways *wink* After today, every
episode will simply repeat starting from episode 1 so thereís really no
reason to continue watching the show after today. For your final cooking
lesson, Dorothy will teach you have to bake deserts. This is the recipe
skill that will become vital later on in the story!

Back to the main story...Since we know that earth power sand should be
in stock today letís head over to the supermarket and buy some up!
Unfortunately, Million doesnít carry the herbs seeds we need to grow in
his super market. However, he did stock them for you to buy in your
vending machines back on your farm (though he doesnít specifically tell
you that. >_>) Youíll need 25 of either a combination of Lavender and
Rosemary seeds...or simply buy all Rosemary seeds since they grow faster
then Lavender does (thatís 7 days for Rosemary and 10 days for
Lavender). That doesnít mean you get to ignore a visit to Millionís
store as he does carry earth power sand which is needed to make the soil
soft enough to be able to till.

Make sure you buy enough earth power sand to soften the earth (thatís 3
in all folks) and enough herb seeds to last you through fall! Why so
many you ask? Well an unfortunate thing about these herb seeds is that
even though they can be purchased in your vending machine, they can ONLY
be purchased during the summer season...and they can be damaged during a
storm even though theyíre inside a cave. And if you only bought enough
initially and a storm blows away your herbs and its autumn...guess what?
Youíre out of luck until the next summer season when the herbs will be
available again! So DONíT FORGET to buy extra seeds (just in case!)

After purchasing the seeds from the vending machines on your farm and
some earth power sand from Millionís Store, head over to the cave and
begin softening the soil. Then till the soil with a hoe, plant your
seeds and add a little water and youíre done! Donít forget to continue
to water these herbs daily until they mature and clear the air of the
cave. If youíd like to make it a little easier on yourself (since a trip
to town my not be in your daily schedule) use some strange moss on the
ground before you plant your seeds! Using strange moss will reduce the
amount of times youíll need to water the herbs yourself. Thereís no
close spot to refill your watering can, so make sure to fill it up on
your farm before coming to the cave.

******************************************
Tuesday, Summer 30 - Saturday, Summer 34
******************************************

Just make sure, in addition to all your other farm chores that you donít
forget to water those herbs! Other then that, the rest of this week
should go by without much excitement.

*****************************
    Sunday, Summer 35
*****************************

After taking care of your farm duties and tending to those herbs in the
cave, head over to Dr. Hopeís house for your weekly checkup. The Dr.
mentions that he was under the impression that his cat was sick but it
looks like she turned out to be pregnant instead! Guess you can expect a
litter of kittens pretty soon ^_^ Wonder if heíll let you keep some?
Other then this eventful news, nothing new happens today.

************************
   Monday, Autumn 1
************************

With a new season comes new planting so make sure to sickle up any old
crops that are left hanging around (or get your robot to do it though
you canít level up your sickle if you do so) and start reforming your
fields to make way for some new crops! There are new seeds to be bought
at both Millionís and your vending machine and since this is the harvest
season, thereís tons to choose from! Either way, you should try to have
at least one plot of eggplant to round out another recipe on your
cooking list...as well as one of plot of every other crop (excluding
flowers) to fulfill another objective for completing Libertaís
dictionary (if you plan on finishing it that is.)

If you havenít completely maxed out your watering can, I HIGHLY
encourage you to not use strange moss or plots that retain water, unless
youíre fairly close to finishing your second star. Youíll NEED to be
able to use the Monsoon Watering can in the winter if you plan on
completing the game as fast as possible. Remember you only have 2 years
to subdue the Fire Spiritís rage, so whatever you donít accomplish this
winter you absolutely have to complete in the winter of your second
year.

If youíve been watering those herbs in the cave everyday up till now,
and have had no storms to wipe out your seeds, when you enter the cave
youíll receive a message stating that the noxious fumes have subsided.
This will only happen today if you planted only Rosemary in the cave, if
you planted any Lavender youíll have to wait 3 more days to receive this
message, or longer if youíve had a storm and lost seeds forcing you to
replant!

When you exit the cave, Marco will call out to you congratulating you
for planting the herbs and clearing the cave of the fumes. In fact, heís
so appreciative that he asked Dr. Hope if he could borrow the blueprints
for Forte so that he could add a new feature to him! What a generous
guy! Donít worry if you donít see any changes in Forte today, as it
takes Marco the entire day to finish the updates!

*************************
   Tuesday, Autumn 2
*************************

Todayís the day Forteís upgrades should be completed! Take a look at his
new menu by scrolling over on screen (after selecting his icon on your
menu screen first) and you should see an entire new listing of things he
can now do! However, be careful when picking which upgrade you want as
itís a one time deal and once picked your choice cannot be changed for
the rest of the day! There are four options that you can upgrade and all
are good candidates...pick whichever you feel fits best with your play
style! Youíll undergo the effect of whatever you picked for an entire
day. However, the next day the upgrade you picked the day before will be
temporarily undergoing maintenance and unusable for up to 4 days
(depending on the skill) so youíll have to pick another upgrade if you
want to gain the added effects from it.

*******************************************
 Wednesday, Autumn 3 - Saturday, Autumn 6
*******************************************

Nothing spectacular will happen the remainder of the week. Focus on
planting some new crops and tending your animals since Iím sure that
will keep you pretty busy!

Note: You may start to notice that the pedestals you placed your yellow
jewels in have started to float. When a pedestal floats like this, you
may choose to re-place them with different colored jewels. If you donít
want to remove the jewels, then you donít have too...even though the
pedestals are floating, the jewels effect remains around the plot.
However, only when 4 jewels of the same color are surrounding a field
will an effect happen...simply placing random colors will not grant the
field multiple jewel effects.

Other than that, the pawpaw tree is now ripe and ready to be picked come
the 3rd so watch for it!

*****************************
    Sunday, Autumn 7
*****************************

After taking care of your farm animals, itís time once again for your
weekly check over at Dr. Hopeís place. Once you enter the Dr.ís lab, you
should notice right away that there are two new additions to the room
sitting in the basket to the left of your father. Looks like Dr. Hopeís
cat finally had her babies! Speak with the Dr. to begin your check up.

After everything checks out, the doctor will mention that he has both
good and bad news to tell you. The good news is his cat had her babies
(which you can already plainly see...) Dr. Hope mentions that you may
have one if you so choose and that the one you donít pick is going to be
sent to a relative overseas so itíll still have a good home regardless.
But he wants you to give it some thought before you make a decision
because you canít change your mind once youíve chosen!

Just as heís about to tell you the bad news...Marcia bursts in the room
and bluntly asks if the mother cat had died. (Iím guessing that was the
bad news...) Dr. Hope states that yes, his cat died just after giving
birth and he feels that the strain of giving birth at such and old age
just worn her out. Dr. Hope encourages both you and Marcia to visit her
grave. Marcia and you visit the grave site and Marcia begins to cry. She
comments that youíre strong for not showing emotion over the loss but
that she knows youíre sad.

Itís all too much for Marcia to handle and she runs off leaving you by
the grave. You feel something inside you stir after experiencing the
cats death and Marciaís tears...this must be true sadness. Your human
stats will yield a major increase. Love will increase by 15 points,
Intelligence and Creativity will increase by 5 points and Humor will
increase by 10 points.

At this point you can head back inside the Doctorís lab and choose which
kitten youíd like to bring back home with you. Your choices are either
the brown kitten on the left or the white kitten on the right. Think of
a good name for whichever you decide and congratulations, youíve
received your final pet! The kitten will not appear at your farm until
tomorrow so head on back to the farm.

After going to bed this evening, my Intelligence reached 100 points.
This may vary from your game.

**************************
    Monday, Autumn 8
**************************

This is just another regular day to focus on your farm.

There are three new wild fruits blossoming if you want to go and harvest
from them; they include the olive, apple and chestnut trees.

Thereís an event you can activate today if youíd like. You must have
completed at least 2 objectives for Libertaís Dictionary before this
event will take place, though if youíve been following along, you should
have 3 completed objectives at this point. Make your way into town and
towards the school. Go inside and speak with a girl named Becky. She can
be found in the music room which is the room on the ground floor
furthest to the right. Sheís sitting in front of the drum set. When you
talk to her, sheíll ask you if youíre looking for something. She makes a
comment that you seem to be addicted to some weird dictionary lately;
sheís of course referring to Libertaís Dictionary.

She mentions that she has a weird book herself and happens to be
carrying it with her. She asks you if youíd like to read it so say YES.
The book is called: White Rose Story-Volume 2. The story inside it
follows a man named Masso who failed another college entrance exam. He
decided to board a train back home and lamented his woes to an old man
riding the same train. The old man suggested Masso to smell a white rose
and rest awhile saying that the scent holds the key to your luck. So
Masso sniffed the rose and fell asleep. A year later Masso passed the
entrance exam for an elite college and it might have had something to do
with sniffing that rose. He went on to be very successful in business
and had a very happy family. A whistle blew around this time and Masso
woke up. Was he dreaming just now? The train had come to the last stop
on the line and the old man was no where to be found. The only thing
remaining was the scent of the white rose.

Speak with Becky after reading the story and sheíll mention that there
is an old tale about white roses on this island as well. Itís rumored
that those who find a white rose in the snow will have everlasting
happiness. She wonders what kind of rose blooms in the winter...You may
ponder this yourself though youíre probably not going to get anywhere
with it for now *wink*

When you go to bed this night, youíll have yourself a dream. In the
dream, youíre married to Becky! She wakes you up and asks you to hurry
because thereís something she wants you to see. She makes a comment
about you looking like a robot...I guess in the dream you happen to be a
human :) She tells you that it happens to be snowing...except its summer
outside! She then takes you outside to see for yourself. You exit the
elevator and step out onto your farm where you see a white rose blooming
right in the snow!

If you walk around your farm and speak with the people here, youíll find
things a bit...odd. Lionel and Simon are talking about crepes and Gayak
happens to be a horse...Becky asks you if you remember the promise you
made on your wedding day and believes the rose youíre seeing is the
legendary white rose of happiness! Go over and inspect the rose and
youíll get messages about the snow being too bright. You canít use any
items in the dream and if you try to even open a menu screen youíll find
you can not. Speak with Becky again and sheíll let you know that youíve
come a long way and even though you had a hard time getting to where you
are now, sheís very happy. She asks you if you are happy as well.
Regardless of your answer Becky will suddenly sneeze and the dream will
end. Your stats will go up by a few points, nothing major.

**************************
    Tuesday, Autumn 9
**************************

After taking care of your daily farm activates head on over to Millionís
Supermarket for a special request. Speak with Nana (sheís the lady with
the teal hair) and sheíll mention that she really wants to win at the
mushroom festival this year but sheís not confidant that she can with
using her usual dishes. She asks you to collect Porcini mushrooms for
her and she mentions that they should be in season tomorrow. She says
that if you do bring her some of these mushrooms that sheíll make sure
to reward you. All you need to do is fill your scale pack and bring them
to the supermarket to deliver to her. She further mentions that she
requires 100g worth of these mushrooms. Guess weíll be picking mushrooms
tomorrow eh? You can continue your day just like always after speaking
with Nana.

Note: If you want to wait a while before starting this event, you can do
so. Dr. Hope will ask you to speak with Nana this upcoming Sunday, (the
14th) though you can speak to her and start the event sooner.

**************************
   Wednesday, Autumn 10
**************************

After the usual chores, jump in your buggy and drive over to the eastern
mushroom forest to see if we canít find any of these special mushrooms
Nana mentioned. Once in the East Mushroom Forest, follow the winding
trail as is wraps around to the far back of the area. You should see
several very tiny mushrooms that appear to be red capped. DO NOT pick
them at this stage as they are not yet fully mature. Letís come back in
a few days when theyíve matured enough to be properly picked. This day
was simply to make sure you knew where to look for them once they are
ripened ^_^

*******************************************
 Thursday, Autumn 11 - Saturday, Autumn 13
*******************************************

Not a whole lot to accomplish the rest of this week, so just continue
doing your daily routine.

**************************
   Sunday, Autumn 14
**************************

Itís another maintenance day, so after taking care of your farm and
animals, jump in your buggy and make your way to Dr. Hopeís. After
stepping out of the shine pod, the good doctor will inform you of
another one of the townís festivals thatís coming up soon. Itís called
the Mushroom Festival since autumn is the season for mushrooms dontcha
know *wink* Heíll then let you know that Nana wanted to speak to you
about something. Other than that tidbit of information, nothing new
occurs today.

*****************************************
 Monday, Autumn 15 - Saturday, Autumn 20
*****************************************

If you havenít already spoken with Nana about the Mushroom Festival, do
so now...she can be found in either the super market, in the inn (after
16:00 on weekdays) or in the school houseí music room (on weekends).
Sheíll let you know that she needs your help with the mushroom contest
as she wants to win it this year. She believes she can but only if
youíll harvest 100g worth of porcini mushrooms for her before the
festival. Unfortunately, the porcini mushrooms havenít reached full
maturity but if you want to check on their progress, you can head over
to the East Mushroom Forest and have yourself a look see.

Also, if you took the time to plant at least one of every fall crop and
harvested it, youíll have another completed objective for your
dictionary! Once you have successfully shipped all the fall crops, take
you dictionary over to the town hall for Liberta to update it.

A new tree is bearing fruit ready for you to pick on the 15th and itís
the Persimmon tree! It can be found right outside the ruins in abundance
as well as along the path leading into town so make sure you grab some
to add to your list!

Thereís really nothing else important about this week, no other new
things to pick up or events to trigger so simply play as you normally
would. Also, it was during this week that my Creativity increased to 100
points. This may vary from your game.

*****************************************
 Friday, Autumn 19 - Saturday, Autumn 20
*****************************************

When Friday rolls around, make sure you tend those crops and animals
early because itís finally time to head into the East Mushroom Forest
and pick up those porcini mushrooms for Nana! Donít forget to grab your
scale pack before you head out! Once you get to the forest, just head to
the right, winding your way through the paths and pick up the fully
mature porcini mushrooms. Donít worry about picking up more than 100g
worth because Nana will only take what she asked for and not a gram
more! Besides, youíll want to have some to ship so that your items list
can continue to grow right?

After youíve picked the shrooms, youíll want to give them over to Nana.
She can be found in either the supermarket, in the school house music
room, or if itís after 16:00, inside the inn towards the kitchen area.
Simply talk to her and youíll hand them over. Sheíll be grateful to you
and believes sheíll be a shoe in at the festival for sure! Youíre such a
great guy :)

In speaking of mushrooms...thereís a new type of mushroom that you can
harvest from the wild at this time. Itís the Matsutake mushroom and it
grows right in front of the cave that used to be blocked by those large
tree branches. Approaching the cave mouth, you should see them right
away as their whitish appearance contrasts with the autumn foliage. Make
sure you grab a few to add to your item list!

**************************
   Sunday, Autumn 21
**************************

After taking care of your chores, go see Dr. Hope for your maintenance.
The doctor reminds you that the Mushroom Festival is next Sunday but
other than that, thereís nothing new or exciting this weekend.

*****************************************
 Monday, Autumn 22 - Saturday, Autumn 27
*****************************************

This week is just another ordinary week on the farm. Make sure, if you
havenít already, to give Nana 100g of porcini mushrooms by the end of
this week! You do want her to win...donít you?

**************************
   Sunday, Autumn 28
**************************

Ah, the long expected Mushroom Festival is finally here! But remember,
just because itís a festival doesnít mean you get away with neglecting
your chores or seeing the doctor for your weekly check up! First, take
care of your farm then you can complete this day one of two ways. You
can either see the doctor first and then go to the festival or go to the
festival and than see the doctor...either way doesnít matter. If you
choose to visit the doctor BEFORE the contest, heíll mention who he
thinks shouldíve won. If you choose to visit the doctor AFTER the
contest, heíll congratulate you for helping Nana win the contest (if you
gave her the mushrooms in time of course.) I suggest visiting after the
contest since the doctor has more to say though itís up to you.

When you see the doctor, heíll let you know youíre good to go for
another week but more interesting is what Vita has to say. Speak to her
after your check up and sheíll mention that the doctor isnít eating much
and is feeling rather ill. She hopes you can calm the Fire Spiritís
wrath soon as she thinks this may help the doctor recover. Weíll ponder
on this dilemma a little later.

When youíre ready to start the Mushroom Festival, wait until itís after
16:00 and then step into the inn (which is normally closed on Sundays.)
Youíll find yourself in the dining area with a large gathering of
people. Speak to each person to learn more about this contest and who
won (hopefully it was Nana!) Thereís nothing much to this festival
expect socializing but the one person you should speak with is Max
(Nanaís bodybuilding husband.) Heíll congratulate you on helping Nana
win the contest (if you decided to give her the porcini mushrooms) and
will reward you with some Earth Power Sand which he has already
delivered to your item box back on the farm! Nice! When youíre ready to
leave the festival simply step outside and make your way back home.

*****************************************
 Monday, Autumn 29 - Saturday, Autumn 34
*****************************************

Another dull week on the farm, so just tend your animals and crops as
usual.

**************************
   Sunday, Autumn 35
**************************

Alright! Itís the final day of autumn and with winter fast on our heels
we better make sure weíre prepared for it! After your chores, head over
to Dr. Hopeís for Sunday maintenance. The doctor informs you that since
the Mushroom Contest is over people are starting to prepare for the
Christmas Party. He letís you know that Dorothy (our host from Cooking
Life!) has something she wants to talk to you about. Wonder what she
wants?

You can speak to her anytime before the party, so in the event you miss
her today, donít fret! Before we speak to her however, there are two
more people weíll want to speak too; Gallion and Masami. You can find of
them inside Gallionís house which is behind Millionís store anytime
after 16:00.

Talk to Masami first and sheíll let you in on a critical storyline
mission. She discusses the Christmas party and how the Mayor only buys
enough poinsettias to decorate the Town Hall. Masami suggests that if
you plant some poinsettias and ship them, that everyone can decorate the
entire town with them! She then letís you know that youíll need to ship
20 poinsettias in order to cover the entire town.

Walk around to the other side of the table and speak with Gallion.
Talking with him gains you some free poinsettia seeds...in fact youíll
get exactly 20 which are enough to fill Masamiís request. These seeds
will be sent to your farm automatically. However, you should definitely
purchase more tomorrow since poinsettias are weak in storms and you
donít want to risk missing this important storyline quest by not having
enough to ship!!!

Now to speak to Dorothy and find out what sheís about, youíll need to
wait until after 16:00 to find her roaming around in her kitchen. The
easiest way to the kitchen is to enter the mayorís house directly. Drive
past the blue sliding doors of the Town Hall and continue to the left
until you see another door. Enter this door to gain entry to the rear of
the mayorís house. Once you enter the house, just wrap your way around
to the right and enter the kitchen which is in the room below the dining
room. If you find yourself unable to make it to the mayorís by 16:00
donít worry as you can find Dorothy awaiting you in the dining room
after 20:00.

You may have to speak to her twice if you have never had the chance to
talk to her, before sheíll let on about her request. It appears as
though sheís looking for someone to help her make cakes for the
Christmas Party. Sheíll then go on to say that you can learn how to bake
a cake if youíve watched the final episode of her show Cooking Life
(which you have done a while ago if youíve been following along.) She
than ask you to come to her house to help out on the night of the 23rd
before the party starts.

Note: If you havenít seen all 10 episodes of Cooking Life you will miss
out on the chance to help make cakes for the Christmas Party! If youíre
only 1 or 2 more episodes to completion than youíll still have time to
speak with Dorothy about her request. If you havenít watched any Cooking
Life or only limited amounts, Iím afraid youíll have to wait until next
years Christmas Party in order to help out.

   Monday, Winter 1
************************

If you head up to your farm, youíll notice that all of your land has
been covered by snow. If you try to use your hoe on your plots youíll
find youíll be unable too. So then, how does one grow anything in the
winter? Well, first youíll need to be able to use the Monsoon Watering
Can. Youíll be able to use the Monsoon can once youíve received all 3
stars for any of the other watering cans. Second, you canít just use any
old water to melt the snow on your fields so youíll need to find and use
some spirit water. You can find spirit water in the fields where your
chickens and cows forage. Both ponds have spirit water in them so which
one you use doesnít matter so. Head up to your farm plots after filling
your watering can with spirit water and stand in the section youíd like
to plant things in. Press and hold the triangle button for a few seconds
and then release it and watch your hero spin around and fling the spirit
water onto the snow covered ground revealing plots of land for you to
till! Donítí forget that youíll still need to till the ground with your
hoe once the plots have been uncovered! You must first thaw the ground
with spirit water before you can do any planting and you MUST use the
Monsoon Watering Can as itís the only can that can hold spirit water. If
you try and draw spirit water into any other can, the water will turn to
normal water. This is why it was so important that you max your watering
can as soon as possible before winter, otherwise, youíll be unable to
grow anything during this season.

You wonít have a lot of options to pick from regarding the types of
things you can grow during the winter. In fact, youíre limited to only
two choices: kale seeds and poinsettia seeds. You already know itís
important to grow poinsettias for the Christmas Party but I also
encourage you to grow some kale as shipping some will unlock another
recipe for you (under the juice selection) and will be added to your
items list.

You do want those poinsettia plants ready in time for the Christmas
Party donít you? Well, I suggest planting them as soon as possible since
they take 14 days to bloom. Today will be pretty busy for you running
around taking care of last seasonís plants and sowing new ones.

*****************************************
 Tuesday, Winter 2 - Saturday, Winter 6
*****************************************

The rest of the week will pass by with nothing new or exciting.
Concentrate on watering those poinsettias as well as any other chores
you may have. If you choose to do a little fishing, the fisherman has
moved onto the lake itself and be found ice fishing there. It was during
this week that my Love section increased to 100 points. This may vary
from your game.

************************
   Sunday, Winter 7
************************

If you havenít already done so, PLEASE plant those poinsettia plants!
You definitely want to make sure you have them to ship before the
Christmas Party. Other than that, finish up your chores than head over
to the doctors.

The doctor expresses his feelings on this past year, mentioning that
this year has been a very fruitful one. He asks you if you had a
fruitful year as well. You can answer however you want as the outcome
makes no difference. If you said YES to his question, he affirms that
youíre doing great and to keep up the good work until the Fire Spirit
has been appeased. Now, if you havenít been following my guide or even
if you have been but at a slower rate, you can speak with the doctor
again and answer differently. For every time you answer NO to his
question, heíll reveal what you should have accomplished already. In
other words, if you had no idea what to do regarding the main story
plot, continue to say NO and the doctor will tell you what you should
do.

Although, it is worth it to perhaps say NO to his first question (has
this been a good year for you) simply to find out WHY you should be
planting these poinsettias. If you speak with Vita, sheíll mention that
the Nature Spirit of Memory (the third and missing sprite from the Giant
Forest) has a single warm memory of poinsettias growing in the winter.
This just confirms how important it is to plant poinsettias if you want
to continue on in the main story!

*****************************************
 Monday, Winter 8 - Saturday, Winter 13
*****************************************

Another uneventful week on the farm so just continue watering those
plants, tending those animals and whatever else it is you do to pass the
time!

************************
   Sunday, Winter 14
************************

If you planted those poinsettias on the first of winter they should be
ready to ship. Make sure you donít forget to ship them, and if youíve
shipped at least 20 of them, you can rest easy for the remainder of this
season. After all your farm work, pay a visit to Dr. Hope for your
weekly check up.

The good doctor expresses what we in the real world grumble about, which
is wishing it was cold when the summer heat gets to hot and wishing it
was warm when the winter months turn bitterly cold. He attributes this
feeling as simply being human nature.

Yea, this Sunday is particularly uneventful, but itís winter, so what
can you expect?

*****************************************
 Monday, Winter 15 - Saturday, Winter 20
*****************************************

Once again, just another ordinary week on the farm so take care of what
you need to in preparation for the Christmas Party thatís coming soon!

************************
   Sunday, Winter 21
************************

After doing your daily ritual on the farm, well...you know the drill by
now, so get yourself to Dr. Hopeís. Before you leave though, make sure
to bring your scale pack as a new plant is ready for us to harvest. As
you make your way into town, youíll notice some green shoots with small
white dots hanging off them. These are Lily Bells and are a winter
exclusive plant, so make sure you grab a few to add to your wild plant
list!

The doctor reminds you that the Christmas Party is coming up soon and
will be held at the Mayorís Hall (which is a room in-between the Town
Hall and the mayorís actual house.) He also tells you that the party
itself will be held on the 24th, which is a Wednesday. He then tacks on
that itís a different day than your usual maintenance. (Iím assuming he
means that youíll need to remember to come into town on a day thatís not
a Sunday. *shrugs*)

Speaking with Vita reveals an improvement in the doctorís health now
thatís heís had a chance to see you. She hopes that youíll be able to
appease the Fire Spirit soon!

************************
   Monday, Winter 22
************************

Thereís nothing exciting about today, just your regular day on the farm.
But enjoy the peace because the next couple of days are going to be
extremely busy!

************************
   Tuesday, Winter 23
************************

Ah, the day has finally arrived in which you are to help Dorothy bake
those cakes for the Christmas Party tomorrow. Make sure you complete all
your chores and any tasks you have set for yourself before heading over
to the mayorís house. Helping Dorothy will take the rest of the night
and most of the morning tomorrow so make sure everythingís in order
before leaving your farm! Make sure to bring along the Forest Crest with
you for itíll make things a little easier for you in the event you
choose to get started on saving the island right away. (This will make
more sense tomorrow.)

Youíll need to meet with Dorothy inside her kitchen (like last time) in
order to start this event. Wait until itís after 20:00 and head into the
mayorís house. Speak with Dorothy in the kitchen and get started on
those cakes!

Youíll fall asleep when youíre finished and wake up in a chair in the
mayorís house in the morning.

************************
  Wednesday, Winter 24
************************

After waking up, speak with Gayak and Marlene sitting in the chairs
nearest you. Marlene has a Christmas present for you: another seed bag,
making this your 8th and final seed bag! There are other people
scattered throughout this room, the dining area and the kitchen so make
sure to speak with everyone! When youíre ready to begin the Christmas
Party head into the Mayorís Hall by taking the door out from the kitchen
(the door is in the upper right hand corner of the kitchen itself.)

In the Hall, youíll notice the rest of the town mingling about the room!
Speak with everyone you can. On an interesting note, speaking with
Sharon reveals that Vita, Dr. Hopeís maid, comes from the same place you
did...does this mean Vitaís also a robot? Time will tell! Speaking with
Dorothy will yield the compensation she mentioned for helping with the
cakes. She apparently has wired some money into your account, how
generous!

When youíve spoken to everyone and are ready to leave the party, attempt
to leave through the large glass doors along the right side of this
room. Charles comments that you should probably go home with Dr. Hope.
Speak with Dr. Hope (you may have to do this twice!) and heíll ask you
if youíve spoken with everyone and are ready to leave. Say YES and start
the walk home with the doctor.

The walk home is very decorative with all the poinsettias youíve been
able to ship. The doctor makes some small talk before you both run into
Vita who seems to be waiting for you. She lets the doctor know his bath
has been drawn and while the doctor is thanking her for her kindness, he
suddenly collapses! Then from out of the bushes springs the elusive
yellow Nature Sprite of Memory!

He starts talking about all the good memories he has of the doctor and
his parents. They were good people that took care of the forest just
like Dr. Hope is doing now. The Nature Sprite sprinkles the doctor with
some magic and informs us that even with the power of the forest, the
doctor cannot be cured completely. He then letís you know thereís not
much time left and you should make the most of it before he vanishes
back into the bushes.

You and Vita are able to carry the doctor back home and get him into a
bed. Once back at the house, Vita makes the comment that the doctor is
only asleep and must be having a good dream since heís smiling. She
informs you that she will not leave Dr. Hopeís side until he wakes up
and urges you to save the island before the volcano finally erupts. She
tells you to make haste to the Giant Forest and speak with the 3 Nature
Sprites there. Then she reveals the most important clue of all: the Fire
Spirit can only be calmed by the Water Spirit during the winter, which
means you only have 11 days to save the island!
Note: If you donít save the island this year, youíll have one more year
(though the game never tells you this) in which to do so before the
volcano finally blows. This is a good thing especially if you havenít
been able to grow any poinsettias this winter.

If youíre ready, letís jump in our buggy and make our way into the Giant
Forest but make sure you have the Forest Crest if youíre setting out
today!  Ride all the way to your forced to get out of your buggy and
proceed to where you last saw the Nature Sprites. The Nature Sprites
have moved and are no longer along the right side of this checker board
area, instead look for all three of them at the top most path.

Youíll hand over youíre Forest Crest and watch as the three Nature
Sprites take you to an area where youíll be able to view them in their
true form. Once the sprites have turned into the Forest Spirit, heíll
invite you to pass through the hole in his trunk to enter the mermaidís
tower. But more importantly, he has broken the magical force that used
to hold the rest of the chests in the Giantís Forest shut! Leave the
hole alone and pick up the two treasure chests in this area before back
tracking all the way to the beginning of the Giantís Forest to open some
more treasure chests! Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Green Jewel
[] Giantís Axe

In the area where you left your buggy, you may remember there being a
single chest you were unable to open, which of course you should do now!
Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Red Jewel

When youíre ready to pick up some more chests, re-enter the checker
board area where you spoke with the Nature Sprites. Search this area
completely to reveal 3 more chests. Below are the items you can find in
this section:

[] Red Jewel
[] Green Jewel
[] Red Jewel

There are 4 different paths (not including the north most one with the
Forest Spirit) for you to choose. Regardless of which one you take, they
will all lead to the same place. Once youíve entered this new area,
which resembles the last one in all ways minus the north most exit,
search it carefully for even more treasure chests. Be on the lookout for
a very sneaky chest hidden in the center of this area. Itís covered by
the foliage which makes it tough to spot! Below are the items you can
find in this section:

[] Purple Jewel
[] Orange Jewel
[] Red Jewel
[] Green Jewel
[] Orange Jewel

After thoroughly scouring both areas of the forest, make your way back
to your farm and place youíre Green Jewels, Orange Jewels and your
Purple Jewel in their pedestals. Unlocking both of these new fields and
doors will be integral in the coming days ahead and thereís no reason
you canít start today! Tomorrow weíll investigate the newly unlocked
Mermaidís Tower.

************************
  Thursday, Winter 25
************************

Even though weíre going have a busy day today, Iíll just briefly note
that youíll now be able to bake the last two cake recipes for your
cooking list since you gained new recipes from attending the Christmas
Party. Give them a try when you get the chance!

Make sure you head up to your fields in the morning and watch the
unlocking of 3 brand new seals! After doing so, make your way all the
way back to through the Giantís Forest to the area with the Forest
Spirit. This time, go through the opening at the base of the tree and
walk through a short cave. When you exit the cave, youíll see a treasure
chest to your right. Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Earth Hammer

Youíll notice youíre standing next to a river and there appears to be
something floating next to the bank. Inspect the floating object to
discover itís a shell and itíll ask you if youíd like to ride it. Say
YES to float down river a ways into the Mermaidís Tower. Youíll have to
steer the shell yourself once you arrive, so coast yourself over to the
right bank and step off. Head up the stairs when youíre ready.

In this room, ignore the statues and the left most stairs leading up and
instead find the opening along the lower portion of the screen to step
outside the tower. Once outside the tower, make your way down the left
slope to discover a chest half buried in the sand. Below are the items
you can find in this section:

[] Enchanted Hoe

Return to the tower and head back inside. If you walk to the north end
of this room, youíll notice two dark blue squares on the floor. This is
a puzzle of sorts in which youíll have to push the two mermaid statues
in this room onto the squares. It doesnít matter which mermaid goes on
what tile, as long as both statues are completely on the square. Once
both statues are properly placed, they will spin around and water will
pour from the jugs in their arms into the pool in front of you. Now that
the pool is now full, the shell can now be rode to the opposite end.
Once there, head up the stairs onto the next floor.

Once again there are two dark blue squares on the floor that you must
push mermaid statues onto. Do exactly what you did downstairs and the
mermaids will fill a new pool of water. Since thereís no shell to ride
on, head back downstairs. Ride back across the pool in this room and
this time, head to the left and go up the stairs there. Once on this
floor, proceed along until you come across two more chests to open.
Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Blue Jewel
[] Blue Jewel

Once youíve opened the chests, ride the shell to the right bank and step
off. You should see 4 symbols arranged on the floor in a square. Each
tile represents one of the four seasons and in order to open up the door
you must step on them in the order they appear during the year --->
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. Hereís the solution: Upper right (flower
= spring), lower left (sun = summer), upper left (leaf = autumn), and
lower right (snowflake = winter). After youíve stepped on the tiles in
the correct order the door will open and you can proceed through it and
up the stairs.

Note: If you accidently stepped on a wrong tile, simply exit this room
and re-enter it and the puzzle will be reset.

Youíve reached the top of the Mermaid Tower! Before you use the walkway
to head left, notice the shell floating in the water below you. Step on
it and steer it to the left side of the pool where you should see a
small bank. Step off the shell and open the chests here. Below are the
items you can find in this section:

[] Blue Jewel
[] Blue Jewel
[] Blue Jewel
[] Blue Jewel

Ride the shell back to the other bank when youíre finished and walk
along the path until you see the Hermit from before! Approach her and
sheíll return the Water Crest she borrowed from you before. She mentions
that since the crest was stolen by humans it can only be returned by a
human...but...wait...does that mean youíre now a human? Well, the Hermit
certainly thinks you are and encourages you to place the crest on the
altar.

Once you do so, youíll be greeted by the Water Spirit who will thank you
for returning her power. She congratulates you on bringing life back to
the island but lets you know that her power alone can not appease the
Fire Spiritís anger. Though, she believes that if you are able to
combine her power with that of the Ice Grail, you might just be able
to!!! She tells you the this grail can be found under the in East Lake
but can only be reached during the winter when the lake freezes over.
Since its winter, sheíll use her power to open a hole in East Lake for
you to enter and retrieve the Ice Grail!

Seeing as though itís probably late in the day, I suggest heading back
to the farm and getting some much needed rest. Make sure if you havenít
already, to place your Green Jewels on pedestals to unlock their seals!
Tomorrow begins our continuing adventures to save the island from
destruction!

**********************
  Friday, Winter 26
**********************

Take care of your chores (and view the unlocking of your green seals if
you havenít already done so!) and make your way back to the cave that
leads to the Giantís Forest (the one weíve been passing through the past
couple of days!) This time, instead of heading to the forest, take the
right exit to enter the curvy area. Once here, take the upper right most
path which will lead you to the side scrolling area and more
importantly, to the green door you can now pass through! Enter the green
door here and step inside the volcano itself!

Youíll find yourself at the top of a spiral walkway. Youíll need to make
it to the bottom, so progress around to your left. Along the way youíll
come across various chests. Below are the items you can find in this
section:

[] Yellow Jewel
[] Purple Jewel
[] Flame Sickle
[] Yellow Jewel

Once at the bottom, step through the cave opening. In this area, proceed
left and around until you come to another opening in the cave wall.
Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Yellow Jewel
[] Purple Jewel
[] Purple Jewel
[] Yellow Jewel

This new area resembles a C so make your way around its path opening any
and all chests you may come across. At the end of the C are some stairs
that continue down into the volcano. Below are the items you can find in
this section:

[] Red Jewel
[] Orange Jewel
[] Red Jewel
[] Orange Jewel

You can tell youíre getting closer to the volcanoís magma core in this
large open area. Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Red Jewel
[] Red Jewel
[] Fire Crest

At the very bottom of this area is an altar where the Fire Crest rests.
Approach it and remove the crest from its pedestal and then make your
way up and out of the volcano. It will be very late by the time you get
back to your farm so hit the hay when you get there!

**********************
 Saturday, Winter 27
**********************

Alright, the time has come for us to finish this adventure, are you with
me? Tend your farm, place any jewels in pedestals (if you wish), make
sure you have the Fire Crest in your pack before leaving and get ye gone
to East Lake! For those of you who have been winter fishing, youíll
already know where to go, for everyone else, take the path south prior
to the entrance of the East Mushroom Forest to reach your final
destination. Once in East Lake, venture out onto the lake itself and
head to the left until you reach a large hole.

Note: If youíve gone to the lake after the Water Spirit revealed the
opening to you, you wouldíve received a message saying that you cannot
enter without the Fire Crest. We simply skipped straight to picking up
the crest without this notice and since it doesnít impact the game, we
saved a little time in doing so.

Approach the hole with the Fire Crest in your pack and youíll
automatically jump down it. Once you land, youíll find yourself in an
icy cave at the bottom of the lake. Before you do anything else, head
south and jump down a small ledge here. You wonít be able to climb back
up but thatís alright. Make your way to the left and discover an
important treasure chest! Below are the items you can find in this
section:

[] Cool Pins

Since you canít climb back up find the exit towards the bottom of this
area and go through it. In this new section, weave your way along the
paths picking up a few chests until you find some stairs leading up.
Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Blue Jewel
[] Yellow Jewel

Do you know where you are? You should, as this is that elusive yellow
door we couldnít seem to open when we unlocked the yellow seals! It also
means youíre on the other side of the lake! Sigh... Make your way
through this familiar cave and back outside. Since your buggyís probably
over at East Lake, weíre going to have to hoof it back.

Once youíve returned to East Lake and have fallen down the hole again we
can proceed in exploring this cave. Search this area before approaching
the stairs on the center dais, making sure youíve picked everything up.
Below are the items you can find in this section:

[] Blue Jewel
[] Blue Jewel

When youíre ready to appease that nasty Fire Spirit, walk up the short
set of stairs in the dais and inspect the frozen pool at the top. This
is the Ice Grail and youíll be asked if you want to place the Fire Crest
on the altar. Say YES to do so and OMG the Fire Spirit himself pays you
a visit!

He doesnít understand how you couldíve summoned him without the help of
the Water Spirit and insists that youíre not calming him, but rather
making him even angrier! The Water Spirit steps in at this point and
tells the Fire Spirit that his anger has gone on for long enough. The
two spirits argue it out for a while before the Fire Spirit calms down.
The Water Spirit lets on that at last the Fire Spirit has recognized
that all the spirits must work together and only together can life
thrive. Both spirits agree they couldnít have done it without you and
they send you back home.

Youíre then transported to the town where you are now being hailed a
hero! The mayor rewards you with 10 Earth Power Sands and sends them to
your farm along with a certificate proclaiming you a success. After this
chat, youíre now free to roam about the decks and speak with the other
people that have come to give you praise, including...an alien?! That
canít bode well...

When youíre ready to leave the viewing decks, start down the glasses
steps. Marcia will stop you and let you know that something has happened
to the doctor. Youíll arrive at Dr. Hopeís to see him wake up and heíll
thank you for saving the island. He knew that you could do it! He speaks
about heís has a good life and how glad he is that you are here to share
in his last moments. Vita will take care of his affairs and with that,
Dr. Hope passes away.

Marcia starts crying and...Whatís this? You start crying as well! But
robots donít cry, does that mean...? Suddenly, magic floods the room and
the room fades out in a brilliant white light.

Congratulations! Youíve beaten Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest
Moon!!! Well, youíve beaten the main story anyways...but there are still
some things that need taking care of...

After the credits are done rolling, youíll watch as Marco ponders over
why his supercoolent never ended up working. Heíll disappear into the
tunnel and youíll hear an explosion. Wonder what thatís all about?
Anyways, save your game and get ready for your next challenge!


**********************
 Your Continuing Life
**********************

When you continue from your saved game, youíll wake up back at your
farm. First and most importantly, youíll never have to trek into town
every Sunday for your weekly maintenance seeing as though the doctor is
no longer around. However, that doesnít mean you get to stay up till all
hours of the day as Vita will now take over calling you if it gets too
late. There are several things you can choose to do with your continuing
game.

- Talk to Vita when you get the chance. She has a present for you that
she found in the doctors store room. From now on, each harvest basket
and carrying box (if youíre using the rail system) will be equipped with
the doctorís device known as the Life Arm. Life Armís will grab crops
ready to be harvested up to 5 spaces away! Thatís extremely helpful for
the busy farmer you are. However, Life Arms can not be used during the
5000 crop challenge.

- Complete Libertaís Dictionary. There are some objectives which cannot
be completed until your second year anyways.

- Finish you various item lists! There are certain flowers, herbs and
wild plants you cannot access until your second year. Spend some time
and grow something new! Youíll spend the longest time waiting on the
Black Truffle as it grows only in the second half of autumn.

- Meet your new neighbors! Remember those two orange doors that have
been sealed? On spring 1st (for some reason Pink Mask doesnít show
himself during the winter) youíll have two new people living at your
ruins home. The second orange door contains your newly met alien friend
you spoke with after youíve saved the island. He serves no purpose other
than now living in your home.

The first orange door next to Moonlightís house contains a mysterious
man known as Pink Mask and heís a traveling merchant of sorts. When you
first meet him, heíll inform you heís not open for business and will ask
if you can come back later. Tell the man NO so that you can purchase
some new and interesting items from him. Below are all the items you can
purchase from him:

Shiny Coat - 198g
	- If you wear this and pet an animal, they will become shiny and
clean! But aside from that, it doesnít seem to have any effect.
	- This item has 5 uses before you need to purchase another.
	- This item is actually rather useless lol. Itís just another
brush for you to use on your animals. It doesnít seem to affect
happiness and there is no physical change in the animalís coat.

Healthy Color - 1,980g
	- Equip this and spray it on a crop and the plant color will
change to look healthier than it is.
	- This item has 5 uses before you need to purchase another.
	- This is another rather useless item. You can spray a plant with
it but...thatís about it. The plant has no physical change and it
doesnít sell for any more or less than normal. Buy it only if you like
spraying your plants so that is feels more ďrealistic.Ē (Like a real
farmer spraying pesticide would.)

Surprising Seeds - 3,980g
	- Hold this and throw it on the ground in your field to plant a
mystery seed. Youíll never know what will sprout.
	- This item has 5 uses before you need to purchase another.
	- You donít need a seed bag to hold these gourds. Simply stand
near a tilled plot of land and seed like you normally would. Surprising
seeds are really mystery seeds that once planted, can grow into random
seasonal plants! This item can be fun to use if you really arenít
concerned with what crop you want to grow.

Blue Egg - 1,280g
	- Spray this on an egg in the incubator bowl and a blue chick will
hatch. There could be side effects.
	- This item has 5 uses before you need to purchase another.
	- This item is fun! Spray the egg inside the incubator and it will
indeed hatch a blue chick! Enjoy it while itís lasts though, because
when the chick turns into an adult, itíll lose itís pale blue color and
become a normal white.

Motherís Touch - 48,900g
	- If you wear this and pet an animal, your pets, cows, chickens,
and sheep will feel great. The crops that you harvest with it will sell
for more money, too.
	- This is an excellent item if you plan on raising animals. Brush
your animals with your usual brush and then brush again using this brush
and youíll raise the happiness of your animals faster!

- Complete the 5000 Crop Challenge. After you save the island, make your
way back to the cave where the Spring Festival was. Youíll notice that
Marcoís construction equipment has been moved and you can go through
into a new area. Make your way through the winding cave until you reach
a field. When you enter this area the Fire Spirit will come down and
talk to you. Heíll tell you that the wasteland beyond is his dominion
and he has a few rules youíll need to follow if you want to work the
land here.

**5000 Crop Challenge Rules**

- You can not use ďimpure objectsĒ such as any basket rails on the
wasteland.

- You can not use any farm equipment that makes farming easier, such as
harvest baskets with the Life Arms.

- You can not plant any flowers or herbs in the wasteland.

- You MUST harvest and ship all 5000 crops within one year. That one
year begins from the day you agree to take on the challenge. So if you
want to start the challenge on winter 35...youíll have until next winter
35 to finish it.

- Although this isnít a rule Iím going to mention it here: If you carry
crops from your ruins farm and deposit them in the Wasteland shipping
pods, they will NOT count towards youíre 5000 mark. Only crops grown in
the wasteland will count towards that total.

After the Fire Spirit gives you the rules, heíll ask you a couple of
questions. When he asks if youíre ready to give up, answer NO. When he
asks if youíre still interested in farming the land, even though if you
lose heíll release an alien power on the land, answer YES.

Now the wasteland field itself isnít a large square patch, in fact itís
shaped more like multiple figure 8ís that are leaning sideways. Before
you can do any farming however, youíll need to prepare the land. Since
its still winter, youíll need to bring along your Monsoon Water Can and
melt the snow on the plots. Then youíll need Earth Power Sand...lots and
lots...of Earth Power Sand; 110 to be exact. Itíll help to use the 10
free ones you received from the mayor for saving the island, but that
means youíll need to purchase 95 additional to make the entire wasteland
fertile. There are 1055 (unless I miscounted >_<) plots of soil in the
wasteland farm for you to use.

**5000 Crop Challenge tips**

- Donít worry about trying to remember how many crops youíve already
planted as each time you enter the Wasteland farm; youíll be greeted by
the Fire Spirit. Heíll tell you how many crops you have shipped so far,
as well as how many you still need to complete the challenge.

- You ďcanĒ use strange moss during this challenge, and Iíve found it to
be ďslightlyĒ easier but more time consuming initially because you have
to place it and then seed. It also means running back and forth to grab
more since you can only hold so much before your backpack is full.

- Make use of the Shine Pod often since youíll be running low on energy
initially, I know I was! You can use the Shine Pod as many times during
the day as you want, so utilize as needed.

- Take advantage of Forteís upgrades! Power and Charge are my favorites
for this challenge but you can play around with the others as well.
Remember though that once used they take a few days to undergo
maintenance.

- There are multiple shipping pods scattered around the wasteland so we
donít have to continuously run back to the front one each time we need
to deposit our crops! Plant strategically near them and your work will
be that much easier.

- Thereís no rule saying you HAVE to use all the plots at once. Nor does
it mean you have to make the ENTIRE field fertile. Use whatever farm
plots you want.

- If itís a rainy day, the rain will also water the crops here which
will save you precious time in watering all those crops.

- You can sleep at Dr. Hopeís house if youíd like to be closer to the
wasteland farm. Or if you want to be REALLY close, bring along your tent
and pitch it right outside the opening to the Wasteland field! Itíll
save some precious time since you donít have to travel from your farm to
the cave. And when you wake up, (in either of the above mentioned
locations) your buggy will be parked right outside in Dr. Hopeís parking
space in case you need it (assuming you drove it to town in the first
place!)

- The fastest growing crops are: Spring - potatoes at 5 days. Summer -
tomatoes at 6 days. Autumn - onion at 5 days. And the only crop you can
grow in winter - kale at 7 days. There are some benefits to using only
fast growing crops (most of which are one time use so youíd have to
replant when you harvest them), yet others (like myself) will vouch for
crops like strawberries, where once ripe they bear fruit everyday or
every other day. You could also do a half and half system with mixed
crops. Itís totally up to how you want to play the game!

OoOoO                    Pets Guide (PET01)                     oOoOoO
OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

In every Harvest Moon game to date, the player always starts off the
game with their trusty pet dog. Sometimes the dog is helpful and other
times heís just there for aesthetic reasons, but whatever the case, the
player always has a pet of some kind. In Innocent Life, you donít start
out with a pet at all; not even your loyal pooch! Whatís a farmer to do?
Well, youíll just have to go out into the world and get your own pets!
In some instances the pet will be given to you, and in others the pet
must trust you before itíll live with you. You can have a total of 3
pets in this game if you so choose. Below are which pets you can own and
how to receive them.


*****************
  A. Stray Cat
*****************

The orange stray cat is the very first pet youíll have the chance to
get. The day after the Spring Festival (Monday, Spring 29), Marcia will
await you in your room any time after 16:00. Sheíll let you know thereís
a stray kitten roaming the nearby woods and sheíll ask you if you can
take care of it for her. Say YES to her when she asks you this question
and tomorrow you can go find this cat sheís talking about. There are two
ways of receiving this kitty as a pet for you; the normal way and the
fast way and Iíll list both below.

NORMAL WAY: For this way what youíll need to do is first find kitty!
Youíre looking for an orange cat and she can be found in the area across
from the swinging bridge. Once youíre in this area, walk to the right
towards the telephone trees...if you donít see her amongst the trees
themselves, try looking closer to the East Mushroom Forest along the
path that leads to it. Once you find the kitty talk to her. Sheíll greet
you with a skeptic meow. You may now leave kitty alone and go about your
business for the day. When tomorrow comes, rinse and repeat. Find kitty
and talk to kitty only this day youíll be greeted with a slightly less
suspicious meow meow. Leave kitty be and go about your day as usual. On
Thursday, go and seek the cat and speak with her for a third time. Sheís
even friendlier today and gives you a meow meow meow hello! Leave her be
and continue your day like always. Now, on Friday when you go out and
speak to kitty, youíll be happy to know sheís friendly enough for you to
adopt! You can even choose a new name for her! Starting tomorrow, your
new pet will begin living in the ruins entrance right in front of the
elevator and just before the exit door. Congrats on your first pet!

FAST WAY: Do you need to have a pet right this second and canít wait
another day?! Well...donít! This way allows you to get your very own
kitty same day guaranteed! Remember, youíre looking for an orange cat
and she can be found in the area across from the swinging bridge. Once
youíre in this area, walk to the right towards the telephone trees...if
you donít see her amongst the trees themselves, try looking closer to
the East Mushroom Forest along the path that leads to it. Once you find
the kitty talk to her. Sheíll greet you with a skeptic meow. Now, enter
the Mushroom Forest. Once there, turn right back around and leave the
forest ending up back in the area with the telephone trees and kitty.
Speak to the cat once again, afterwards enter the mushroom forest. Rinse
and repeat until you get the message that the cat is friendly enough to
adopt! Give a name to your kitty and BAM youíre done!
Starting tomorrow, your new pet will begin living in the ruins. Congrats
on your first pet!

****************
    B. Puppy
****************

The puppy is the second pet that you can acquire in this game and it
comes to you automatically! When you go for your weekly maintenance
check up at Dr. Hopeís on the 14th of summer, heíll mention to you that
Gayakís dog has had puppies and that Gayak would like you to have one of
them. Gayak comes into the lab and informs you that heíll send the puppy
over to your house the next day. He even went and gave the puppy a name
for you! However, if you donít like the default name, simply answer NO
when Gayak asks you if the name is alright and youíll have to option to
name the puppy yourself.

The puppy will live on the farm itself (except in rainy weather itíll
take cover in your room) and will occasionally leave poop among your
fields. When you want the poop removed, simply let Forte clean it up for
you as one of his chores. Other than that, the puppy, serves no purpose
other than to give you company and poop in your fields.

Note: Your puppy will grow into a full fledged adult dog the 1st of
spring in your second year!

****************
   C. Kitten
****************

The third and final pet you can receive is a tiny kitten. When you go
for your weekly maintenance over at Dr. Hopes on the 7th of autumn,
heíll let you know that his cat finally had her babies! Unfortunately,
the mother cat died leaving behind two kittens that now need a good
home. After you complete the scene with Marcia, Dr. Hope will let you
select a kitten to take home with you. You can only take one however so
choose wisely! Your choices are either the brown kitten on the left or
the white kitten on the right. Think of a good name for whichever you
decide and congratulations, youíve received your final pet! The kitten
will live inside your room, mostly in the bathroom though itíll migrate
to the living room/bed room area in the evenings.

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

As with all Harvest Moon games, your television will play an important
part in deciding how you go about your day. This section will help
explain the various channels that you can watch from the TV in your
room. For more detail regarding the various TV show scripts please see
that section in the guide.

***************************
 Weather News
***************************

This is probably going to be the channel that you will view most often
(if not every single day.) This channel features Neo, your local weather
forecaster (that just happens to be a scientific fortune teller.) Neo
will predict the tomorrows weather for you every single day. This
channel really shines through summer, autumn and winter when Heartflame
Island experiences storms.

Neo will predict tomorrowís weather as being one of three outcomes. The
first forecast being sunny. During this forecast the sun will shine
brightly and will be the weather you experience through most of the
game. During this weather you will need to water your crops and can move
about at normal speed.

The second weather forecast is rainy (or snowy). During rainy weather,
the rain takes care of any watering that you might have needed to do for
the entire day! Very convenient when you have large amounts of crops
growing on your fields. You can still walk about your farm and the
island at normal speed. During the winter, the ďrainyĒ forecast will
become ďsnowy.Ē Just like during rainy weather, all of your crops will
be watered for you.

The third forecast is stormy weather. This is the worst of all possible
forecasts and should be avoided at all costs! During this type of
weather your crops do not need to be watered...but at a price! Try to
wake up earlier then usual (4:00AM) and harvest all ripened crops before
the storm hits. Fragile crops have a high chance of not surviving the
storm and will be blown away thus loosing that crop. Thatís not to say
you should plant only hardy crops as they also have a chance of being
destroyed as well. Plant with care as you will ALWAYS receive at minimum
2 storms per season with spring being the exception as no storms seem to
occur during this season. Also, during a storm your character will move
at half his normal speed due to the high winds and this includes the
buggy as well! You will continue moving at normal speed in caves
however.

Want to prevent storms from occurring during the summer, autumn and
winter months? I know itís hard but Iím asking you to NOT completely
cover your fields entirely with crops. Iíve found that leaving about 15-
10 percent of your fieldsí crop free (yes that includes flowers and
herbs as well) that you can completely avoid storms! Unplanted soil also
means untilled so if you were using the land to increase the hoes level,
make sure to hammer out the plots when youíre done! Unfortunately, no
matter what you do, you will always have 2 storms per season. This is
unavoidable and part of the game play. Leaving 10-15 percent of your
fields bare will guarantee that you donít have any *additional* storms.
Just to clarify, when I say 10-15% of all your fields, I donít mean 10-
15% of each separate plot (i.e. each area that 4 jewel pedestals
surround)...I mean 10-15% of all the fields you have currently unlocked.
Any fields that are still sealed do not count towards the total of 10-
15% untilled.

***************************
 Herbal Garden
***************************

This channel features a new (and very welcome) addition to this Harvest
Moon game. Unlike its predecessors, Innocent Life has very advanced
technology and when it comes to harvesting flowers, thereís no
exception. If you plan on planting flowers on your farm you will come to
use this channel a lot. Instead of harvesting your flowers like you
would crops, the islanders have decided that flowers are best when
picked fresh from your farm as opposed to being shipped where they can
get damaged. Any time you have fully blossomed flowers growing on your
farm, run back downstairs to your room and watch this channel. When you
select this channel for viewing, you will have three choices.

The first option is to ship flowers. Select this option to have the
gardeners come and harvest the flowers for you fresh the very next
morning. Select which flowers you would like to have shipped by
selecting them with the triangle button then hitting finish. The
gardeners will go over your order and ask you if this is ok. Tell them
YES and they will come by your farm tomorrow morning and harvest your
flowers for you! No matter how early you wake up you never see them
harvesting your flowers, theyíre just that fast!

The second option is to check your flowers status. This option will show
you exactly how many flowers you have growing on your farm listed by
type and how many flowers youíve shipped that day. This option is
slightly useless as you canít due anything at this menu (besides, Iím
sure you remember how many flowers you planted right?)

The third option prompts you to hear an explanation. This then bring up
a second selection screen in which you can hear explanations about
shipping, seeds and flowers status. Choose this option to hear more
about how shipping works about how to acquire new seeds and about
understanding your flowerís status.

***************************
 Cooking Life
***************************

This show is critical if you plan on acquiring all the possible recipes
that the game has to offer and starts you on your way to becoming a
master chef! Also, watching all 10 shows allows you to be able to
complete a winter request required later in the game so this channel is
a must watch even if you never set foot in the kitchen!

This channel features Dorothy, the mayor of Heartflame Islandís wife, as
the star chef. During airtime, she tells you all about a different type
of cooking skill once every week. The skills you will learn are listed
below in the order they are acquired in:

Drinks
Cutting
Cutting (Advanced)
Boiling
Cutting Drinks
Boiling (Advanced)
Grilling
Grilling (Advanced)
Oven Baked Dishes
Over Baked Treats

You cannot cook a specific meal or drink until youíve first watched the
show but once youíve learned it you can keep using that skill forever!
Some recipes require you to first ship a certain item before you are
able to access its recipe so keep this in mind.

***************************
 Drama
***************************

This channel is just for fun but alludes to different storyline
progressions throughout the game. Itís not required that you watch this
channel before those storyline events will occur though so donít worry
if youíve never seen any shows or missed an episode.

There are two shows that can be viewed from this channel and occur
during different times of the week. The first being ďWhereís My Mommy? A
Kittenís JourneyĒ which airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This
program alludes to a pet that you acquire later in spring of your first
year.

The second show features a terribly depressed young child entitled
ďMelancholy WoodsĒ and is about the tragic story of a young boy growing
up. This show airs Tuesdays and Thursdays.

***************************
 Anime
***************************

This channel also is just for fun and similar to the drama channel, it
eludes to different storyline progressions throughout the game. Again,
itís not required that you watch to show to still have the events occur.

There are also two shows available for viewing on this channel. The
first being ďFinal Z RangersĒ which airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and
Fridays. This show features everyoneís favorite super team the power
rangers (even though they donít come right out and say it...you know
itís them!) battling an alien life form that has come to earth for
unknown reasons. This show alludes to a certain event that happens
during your second year of game play.

The other show is my personal favorite and is entitled ďMiss Cute, Witch
in TrainingĒ and airs on Saturdays and Sundays. This program features a
girl sent to the human world to train so that she can become a full-
fledged witch! Though she has a few blunders, she means well...
After Miss Cute Witch in Training has aired its last show, a new program
(during the same time and date) will replace it and itís called: Miss
Cute, Witch in Super Training. This new show will still be about Miss
Cute except sheís grown up some.

***************************
 World Ranch
***************************

This is the channel for all those hoping to add ranch life to their
already hectic farming schedule. Until you acquire all four blue gems
and place them on the altars on your farm and break the seal you canít
really do much with this channel. But once you can...the wide world of
ranching really opens up to you! Viewing this channel will prompt you to
three choices.

The first option is to buy livestock and as youíve probably guessed
allows you to purchase your very own animals. Selecting this option will
have the rancher tell you exactly how many more of a certain type of
animal you can still acquire for your farm. You cannot acquire more then
5 animals of any type which means you can only have 5 cows, 5 chickens
and 5 sheep maximum for a total of 15 animals.

However, if you are not at maximum capacity you many purchase more
animals. To purchase an animal, select the type of animal you want to
buy. Once youíve selected the animal the rancher will prompt you to give
the animal a name. Unlike other Harvest Moons to date, you cannot name
your own animals which I thought was a bit of a bummer. Thereís a list
of pre-picked names for you to choose from. If you arenít fond of a
certain name select it anyways but choose the ďNOĒ response to the ďdo
you like this nameĒ question to bring up a new set of names. You can
continue in this fashion scrolling through the different names until you
find one that you like. The animal you just bought will arrive at your
farm the very next day.

The second option is to sell your livestock. This option allows you to
sell off any animals that you no longer want. The higher the animal has
in affection for you the more its worth. I do not suggest selling off
your animals unless youíre in a financial bind or unless youíre
completely overburdened with too many animals and are unable to take
care of them all.

The third and final option is to hear an explanation. Similar to the
herbal gardens explanation option, here you can learn about livestock,
shipping, and chickens and also about your livestockís ranks.


OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo
OoOoO              Tools and Their Upgrades (TLUP01)            oOoOoO
OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

As with the other games, you start out your farming career with only
very hard to use Iron tools. Every tool that is made from Iron as well
as Dr. Hopes watering can consume lots of PP over time and only waters,
chops, crushes and sickles 1 square at a time, making farming a lot of
work!

Each tool you acquire throughout the game can level up with a maximum of
3 levels. How you level up the tool depends on the type of tool being
used! To level up an axe, you must chop up the branches that sometimes
litter your farm fields; to level up your watering can you must water
tilled soil and so forth. Ever wondered what those little numbers were
that appear anytime you do a chore on your farm or in the caves (i.e.
watering, chopping branches, breaking rocks...etc?) Each time you use a
tool you gain that many experience points towards the tools next level.
Letís say you watered one square of your crops with your Doctorís
Watering Can, a little number 1 should have appeared above your
characters head after you did the action right? Well congratulations
because you just got 1 experience point towards your watering canís next
level! The higher the level your tools are, the faster youíll be able to
acquire experience points towards your tools next level. For another
example, letís say you have just received Masamiís Watering Can, if you
stand in front of your crops and briefly tap the triangle button, youíll
water 3 squares at a time and a little number 3 should have appeared
over your head...Youíve just acquired 3 more experience points towards
your final level! But if you pressed and held the triangle button while
using Masamiís Watering Can for a few second longer standing in the
center of a plot of 9 crops, your character would have done a little
spin and thus have watered all 9 spaces but the little number above your
head wouldíve read 10. WHOOHOO! That means even though you only watered
9 squares you received 10 experience points for your trouble. So see?
Acquiring higher level in your tool and receiving higher tool upgrades
really makes a huge difference!

To be able to use the next upgrade for your tools, you must first
ďmasterĒ the previous tools level. What I mean by that is you cannot use
a level 2 tool until you have two stars next to your tools name. All
tools gain a maximum of 3 levels in this game. This can be seen on the
menu that looks like your characters face after pressing the R1 button.
It takes a certain amount of experience points in order to reach the
next level of a tool. You must therefore try to use your tools as often
as possible in order to be able to use higher level tool upgrades.
Remember, even though you own a level 3 tool, youíll be unable to use it
until youíve reached 3 levels (or three stars) with your current tool!

Each time you use a tool, depending on its level will consume a set
number of PP or Power Points with the highest level tools consuming the
most PP in a single use. If at anytime you run out of PP you are then
unable to complete any tasks, even if the task is picking up an object
from the ground (as that wastes PP as well!) To restore your PP you can
do one of two things, head over to either the Doctorís House or the
Fishermanís Hut and step inside the shine pod there...this will restore
all your PP or stand still for a half-hour (game time) and youíre PP
will replenish slowly.

Below Iíve listed all the tools and how to find better and more
efficient upgrades as you continue through the story.

***************************
 Watering Cans
***************************

Note: A nifty little addition in this game allows you to never water the
same spot twice, thus not wasting anymore PP then you have too! Groovy!

***Doctorís Watering Can***

You begin the game with the Doctorís Watering Can that you acquire from
Dr. Hope. Itís not very good and only is able to water 1 square of crops
at a time. It can hold up to 25 uses of water before you have to refill
it at the watering hole. You must use this watering can 500 times before
itíll gain a level and become level 2.

***Masamiís Watering Can***

Masamiís Watering Can is the second watering can you get in the game.
You can acquire this watering can only after youíve already reached
level 2 by using the Doctors Watering Can. Once your watering can is at
level 2, seek out Masami in either her house which is behind Millionís
Supermarket during the day or at the bar she runs which is the building
directly in front of Millionís Supermarket during the evening after
16:00pm. This watering can is very versatile as it has two functions.
The first function is that if you briefly tap the triangle button while
facing your crops you will water 3 squares of crops at once. The second
function is that if you happen to stand in the center of a plot of 3x3
crops and hold down the triangle button for a few seconds, upon release
your character will do a little spin and water all 9 spaces at once!
Very convenient indeed! This watering can is able to hold 100 uses of
water before you have to refill it at the watering hole.

***Monsoon Watering Can***

The Monsoon Watering is the final upgrade you can acquire to complete
your watering can collection. You can acquire this after clearing the
mist away from the entrance to the Giants Forest. Itís in a blue
treasure box to the right of the fallen log bridge. This watering can
allows you to water crops even in the winter! This can has an extensive
reach and holds 9,999 uses of water before having to refill at a water
hole! Legendary indeed! If you stand in front of soil you wish to water,
youíll water 3 horizontal squares. If you charge this tool, youíll do a
little spin and shower the ground with water in a circle that covers 25
plots of soil! However, you must have reached max level before you can
actually use the can. This requires you to water with either your
Doctorís Watering Can or Masamiís Watering Can 3,000 soil squares.

***Water Pistol***

Although this isnít technically an upgrade itís still a tool that can be
used for watering your crops. This tool can be purchased at Millions
Supermarket for. I would recommend against buying this tool as it breaks
after a certain number of uses...not a very effective tool if I might
add.

***************************
 Hoes
***************************

***Iron Hoe***

Another tool youíll receive in your first days on farming, this tool is
given to you by Gayak after youíve completed the farming tutorial on his
farm. This hoe can only till soil one square at a time. (This excludes
barren land which you must first use earth power sand on to soften it
enough to till.) You must use the Iron Hoe 200 times before itíll gain
another star to become level 2.

***Masterís Hoe***

This hoe is the next hoe youíll acquire in the game and is level 2. To
find this tool, you must have placed the four blue jewels on the
pedestals at your farm to calm the sandstorms in the desert. Once that
has been accomplished you must speak with the Hermit that lives east
from the desert and north from the plains in a little tropical area.
Once she clears the large branches blocking your path towards another
cave you can access the third cave in the game. The Masterís Hoe is
located in one of the blue treasure chests in this forestry cave. If you
hold down the triangle button while standing near the front of a plot of
farm land, you can charge your hoe up and upon release will till 9
squares of soil in the straight line in one blow! (This excludes barren
land which you must first use earth power sand on to soften it enough to
till.) You must now till 800 squares with this hoe to gain the third and
final star making this a max level tool.

**Enchanted Hoe**

This is the final hoe youíll pick up in the game and is a max level hoe.
Youíll find this hoe outside the Mermaid Tower along the left slope half
buried in the sand. Itís the only chest outside the tower so you
shouldnít have a problem finding it. When you stand in front of fertile
soil you will hoe 3 squares in a horizontal line. If you hold down the
triangle button to charge before releasing, youíll hoe a 9x9 patch!
(This excludes barren land which you must first use earth power sand on
to soften it enough to till.) Very nice for those wanting exact farm
plots without having to count *wink* you must first have received all 3
stars to be able to use this item. As an extra bonus, when you use this
tool, youíll sometimes unearth random pieces of ore! All ore found with
this hoe will automatically be sent to your blue resources pod for
shipment.

***************************
 Hammers
***************************

***Iron Hammer***

This is one of your tools that you must purchase from Millionís
Supermarket and its purchase price is 650g. Just like your other iron
tools, the iron hammer can only crush one small rock at a time and canít
even dent a boulder! Youíll need a more advanced tool to destroy those
scattered amongst your farm fields. Youíll need to use the Iron Hammer
250 times before itíll gain another star and become a level 2 tool.

***Easter Hammer***

This is the next hammer you can acquire in the game and is a level 2
hammer. To obtain this item you must progress in the storyline until you
receive 4 red jewels and break the seal on your farm fields. Upon doing
so, enter Easter Ruins via the entrance to the ruins through the red
door. In this new area there are 4 doors that you can choose to take.
Take the first door on your left (the bottom left) and continue walking
along the wall until you come to a blue treasure chest. This chest
contains the Easter hammer, a more powerful hammer that when charged can
destroy those boulders on your fields! It will take another 500 points
before this hammer will become a max level tool.

**Earth Hammer**

This is the final hammer youíll receive in the game and is a max level
tool. You can find this hammer inside a chest once youíve reunited the 3
Nature Sprites. Once the Forest Spirit has been rejuvenated, pass
through the opening in his truck to find yourself in an area with a
river. The chest containing this item is along the left bank of the
river. If you stand in front of soil you wish to remove (make untilled)
and use this hammer, it will until 3 squares of soil in a horizontal
line. If you charge up this hammer, you will clear 25 squares of soil in
the area surrounding you. You must have received all 3 stars to be able
to use this item. When you use this hammer, youíll notice that the earth
will shake every time you pound the ground.

***************************
 Axes
***************************

***Iron Axe***

This is another tool that you must first purchase at Millionís
Supermarket with a purchase price of 480g. As with all the axes, this
axe can only chop up branches that sometimes appear on your farm. The
Iron Axe can result in a variation of wood to appear upon chopping a
branch. Sometimes when chopping a branch with this axe, no wood will be
yielded and other times you may receive one or two stacks of wood which
results in 4 or 6 experience points respectively. You must use the Iron
Axe 50 times before itíll gain another star and become a level 2 tool.

***Masterís Axe***

This axe is the second youíll acquire in the game and is at level 2. To
find this tool, you must have placed the four blue jewels on the altars
at your farm to calm the sandstorms in the desert. Once that has been
accomplished you must speak with the hermit that lives east from the
desert and north from the plains in a little tropical area. Once she
clears the large branches blocking your path towards another cave (this
one being located next to the hot springs cave in Southwest Bank of East
Lake) you can access the third cave in the game. The Masterís Axe is
located in one of the blue treasure chests in this forestry cave. Unlike
the Iron Axe, when using the Masterís Axe you will always receive two
stacks of wood upon chopping a branch on your farm which will always
yield you 6 experience points. It takes 150 more points of use before it
becomes a max level tool.

**Giantís Axe**

This is the final axe youíll receive in the game and itís a max level
tool. Once you have rejuvenated the Forest Spirit, he will clear the
magic that has bound several of the chests inside the Giantís Forest.
The chest containing the Giantís Axe can be located in the area were you
must cross the fallen log (the beginning of the Giantís Forest.) Itíll
be the only chest sealed with magic in this area. If you stand in front
of a branch you wish to cut and use this axe, youíll always receive two
bundles of wood. If you charge up the axe however, youíll receive GIANT
wood! Make sure to use this tool at least once and ship some giant wood
to complete your ďother itemsĒ list. This tool can only be used if you
have max level with your axes.

***************************
 Sickles
***************************

***Iron Sickle***

You can acquire this tool in one of two ways. The first way will cost
you no money as you can acquire this sickle for free from Franco. On the
third day of spring of your first year, speak with Franco in his house
thatís adjoined to your ruins home. Heíll ask you if youíre getting used
to farming, to which of course you should answer YES when prompted.
Heíll say thatís good to hear and he will give you this sickle for free!
Yippy! The other way of obtaining this sickle is by purchasing it from
Millionís Supermarket for the price of 320g.

As with all the other iron tools, this sickle is only able to cut down 1
squares worth of weeds or dead plants at a time. This is also probably
the slowest tool to level so try to make sure to sickle weeds to level
this tool up before ordering your robot to do it for you. Youíll need to
use the sickle 150 times before itíll reach level 2.

***Volcano Sickle***

This is the next upgrades for the sickle collection and is a level 2
tool. To find this tool, you must have placed the four blue jewels on
the altars at your farm to calm the sandstorms in the desert. Once that
has been accomplished you must speak with the hermit that lives east
from the desert and north from the plains in a little tropical area.
Once she clears the large branches blocking your path towards another
cave you can access the third cave in the game. The Volcano Sickle is
located in one of the blue treasure chests in this forestry cave. When
you charge up this tool by pressing and holding the triangle button you
are able to cut up to 3 squares of weeds or dead plants at once. Youíll
need to use the sickle 300 times until itíll reach max level.

**Flame Sickle**

This is the final sickle youíll receive in the game and itís a max level
tool. Youíll find this tool behind the green sealed doors (must have
first found 4 green jewels and watched the unlocking of the seal on your
farm first!) The sickle can be located along the spiral ramp leading
into the volcano. If you stand in front of some dead plants (or weeds)
and use this sickle, you will remove 2 rows of 3 horizontal squares at
once. If you charge this tool before using it, youíll slash through a
9x9 area of plants/weeds. You must have reached max level in order to
use this tool. *When you use this tool, charged or not, youíll see
flames cut through the object youíre trying to rid yourself of.*

***Boomerang***

This nifty little tool isnít an upgrade at all but a fun addition to the
game. Similar to the water pistol the boomerang can be purchased at
Millions Supermarket for. I would recommend against buying this tool as
it breaks after a certain number of uses...not a very effective tool if
I might add. Itís used to cut down weeds and dead plants but the sickle
does a much better job

***************************
 Fishing Pole
***************************

Unlike your other tools, you donít actually get the opportunity to own
your own fishing pole. So even though you donít own a rod, youíll still
need to go fishing if you want to increase the poleís level. Iím sure
Iíve confused you...so let me explain. First of all, donít even worry
about fishing until youíve found and placed the 4 blue jewels on your
farm. Once you have done this, youíll have access to the desert and the
plains which is where you can now start fishing! To begin fishing youíll
need to meet the Fisherman; he lives in the Heartflame Dunes which is
one screen down from the desert. Enter his hut and engage him in
conversation and become friends with him.

After this initial conversation, you are able to fish. Anytime you wish
to fish you must first seek out the Fisherman. The Fisherman moves from
location to location depending on the season.

- In the spring, the Fisherman will be fishing along the bank thatís
east of the Hot Springs. Go down the slope to the right of the Hot
Springs to find him.

- In the summer, the Fisherman will be sitting along the cliff to the
right of the horse pasture in the Heartflame Plains.

- In the autumn, the Fisherman will be sitting along the river bank
directly across the repaired bridge in the Southwest Bank of East Lake.

 - In winter, the Fisherman will be ice fishing on the Lake. To locate
him, make your way towards the East Mushroom Forest but instead of going
into the forest, use the path before it which will take you to the area
with the southern constellation pedestal. From the pedestal, head
northwest and youíll see him fishing around an ice hole.

To begin fishing, simply speak to the Fisherman once heís in his fishing
location and heíll ask you if you want to fish here. Select YES to
borrow one of his fishing rods and youíll begin to fish standing
directly next to him. Unlike the other Harvest Moon games there will be
no indicator as to whether or not you have a fish on the line. Youíll
just have to allow a few minutes to pass before reeling in your line.
Sometimes youíll get a fish and sometimes you wonít; itís really all a
matter of luck here folks.

Youíll receive 5 points from every small fish you catch and a whopping
30 points for any large fish you haul in! Youíll need to catch at least
one fish successfully if you want to complete all of the recipes in the
game. To raise the fishing pole to level 2 youíll need to catch fish
until youíve managed to collect 50 skill points. For the third and final
level youíll need to fish until youíve collected enough skill points,
150 as a matter of fact!

***************************
 Animal Brush
***************************

You donít need to buy this tool as you acquire it as soon as you buy
your first animal. It isnít an actual item, so donít go looking for it
in your bag or item box. You will use it automatically anytime you
choose to brush your animals by pressing the triangle button next to
them.

***************************
 Earth Power Sand
***************************

This tool becomes available for purchase at Millionís Supermarket after
the accident in the cave during the summer though you can obtain 2
pieces of it from earlier caves for free. Earth Power Sand can be used
to spread on top of barren soil (soil that looks like it might have tiny
stones imbedded in it) that can be found on your farm and in the Spring
Festivalís cave. Unlike the majority of soil found on your farm, barren
soil canít be till with your hoe making it impossible to plant seeds in
it. Once sprinkled on barren ground, the soil turns into fertile soil
that you can use to till with your hoe. One piece of Earth Power Sand
can be used to spread on 9 squares of barren land similarly to strange
moss. Earth Power Sand goes for 2000g.

What is a Harvest Moon game without crops? This section of the guide
will discuss the basics of farming, all the different types of crops as
well as flowers, wild fruit and mushrooms!

When you first begin the game Gayak will show you on a virtual farm how
to begin farming. Listen to what he has to say and follow the
instructions he gives you. Once you successfully complete his tutorial,
youíll be brought to you farm where the real adventure begins. When you
first arrive at your farm you must prove to Franco that you can indeed
grow crops. Youíll have 6 days to grow and ship your first harvest,
turnips! Once youíve done that, NOW you can start planting what you
want, where you want and how much of what you want! Exciting isnít it?

Since youíve had a whole week to get used to farming I wonít go over how
to do it (since you already know) but I will point out several useful
farming tips.

While on your farm you might be wondering what the blue shipping pod is
for. The blue shipping pod is directly next to your green shipping pod
and is used to ship any ore, stones or building materials such as wood
or rock from your farm. When you want to ship something in this pod,
walk up to it and press the triangle button to deposit your goods into
the pod for shipment.

Ever wonder where your seeds went after you bought them from the store?
Well in this game seeds are kept separately from you other items in a
special contain in the storage area of your farm. Simply take the
elevator to the storage level and then walk to the right of said
elevator and slightly up screen to find this contain. Remember, you can
only take out the seeds if you have a seed bag already in your
inventory! Each seed bag can hold up to 100 seeds of any type of crop.
But also remember; only one type of seed can occupy a seed bag at one
time. Canít have those corn seeds mixing with the tomato seeds now can
we?

Are you harvesting a large amount and tried of individually taking one
crop at a time to the shipping pod? Problem solved! Simply pick up your
crop and press the O button to store it in your bag. Continue picking
you crops until your bag is full then walk over to the green shipping
pod and press the triangle button. Youíll be presented with a screen
that will show you all the crops in your bag and the amount each crop
costs. Select YES when asked to ship all your crops from your bag and
Viola, easy shipping!

Tired of all those weeds cluttering up your field? Donít simply throw
them in your watering hole (though you can thereís nothing wrong with
doing so) sickle them! The sickle is one of the slowest tools to level
in the game and those weeds are an easy way to level said tool.

Want to prevent storms from occurring during the summer, autumn and
winter months? I know itís hard but Iím asking you to NOT completely
cover your fields entirely with crops. Iíve found that leaving about 15-
10 percent of your fieldsí crop free (yes that includes flowers and
herbs as well) that you can completely avoid storms! Remember, thatís
any field you plan on having crops in leave about 15-10 percent
unplanted and youíll avoid storms. Unplanted soil also means untilled so
if you were using the land to increase the hoes level, make sure to
hammer out the plots when youíre done! Unfortunately, no matter what you
do, you will always have 2 storms per season. This is unavoidable and
part of the game play. Leaving 10-15 percent of your fields bare will
guarantee that you donít have any *additional* storms. Just to clarify,
when I say 10-15% of all your fields, I donít mean 10-15% of each
separate plot (i.e. each area that 4 jewel pedestals surround)...I mean
10-15% of all the fields you have currently unlocked. Any fields that
are still sealed do not count towards the total of 10-15% untilled.

Have you ever wanted to know just how many plots of soil there were in a
given field? Below is a small list detailing exactly that! This list
goes clockwise following the fields back to the start. The ďstartingĒ
field is your default field in which there are no pedestals to place
jewels.

	- First left field from starting field  	   	  = 81 plots
	- Second left field from starting field 	   	  = 81 plots
	- Large field above the 2 lower left fields  	  = 300 plots
	- Small field inside the left large field    	  = 64 plots
	- Top most field					        = 118 plots
	- Large field above the 2 lower right fields 	  = 347 plots
	- Medium field inside the large right field  	  =
	- Small field inside the large right field   	  =
	- Second small field inside the large right field =
	- Second right field from starting field		  = 180 plots
	- First right field from starting field		  = 81 plots
	- Starting field						  =

One last thing regarding crops, certain recipes can only be unlocked
after youíve shipped a certain crop. Try to ship as many different crops
as possible to fill out your list!

***************************
 C. Wild Fruit
***************************

Gathering wild plants comes as a second nature to true Harvest Moon
alumni but there has been one large change to how you go about doing so
in this game. Because of such advanced technology, people donít go
harvesting wild plants anymore and if you do decide to do so you need a
special pack to store your wild produce. This device is known as a scale
pack and can be purchased from Millionís store for 1980g. You cannot
pick up any wild fruit or mushrooms without first owning one and keeping
it in your inventory when you go harvesting.

The scale pack has a few restrictions to it that youíll need to keep in
mind when harvesting wild plants and mushrooms. The first is that there
is a weight limit built into the scale and when it reaches its limit you
cannot harvest any more plants. That limit is 3000g and youíll notice
that when you pick fruits and mushrooms that they too have a weight
assigned to them. Keep your eye on how much weight an plant amounts too
and decide if you have room to pick more!

The second restriction is that there are a certain number of different
plants the scale pack can hold at one time. That number is 7, which
means that you can hold 7 different individual plants before the pack
announces it canít hold anymore. This is regardless of weight, so if you
still have room where your weight limit is concerned but have already
picked up 7 different plants, youíll only be able to continue harvesting
plants that are already in your pack and not additional new ones.

Just like in real life, different fruits appear during different seasons
and different times during the season. Below is a list of which fruits
are available during which seasons and when theyíll start bearing
ripened fruit for you to pick!

Also, anything you pick in the wild whether it is mushroom or fruit
should ALWAYS be placed in the shipping pod the day you pick it! In this
futuristic world, items sell the most when theyíre received at the
height of freshness. If you pick items, then leave them in your scale
pack over night, they will have there sell value decrease by half!
Thatís a major difference! So always try to remember to get those items
out of your scale pack the same day you pick them for max sell value!

 D. Wild Mushrooms
***************************

Gathering mushrooms is exactly like gathering wild plants. Because of
this, youíll need to get yourself a scale pack and can be purchased from
Millionís store for 1980g. You only need one scale pack to be able to
pick up both wild fruits and mushrooms. Remember, you cannot pick up any
wild fruit or mushrooms without first owning one and keeping it in your
bag when you go harvesting.

Also, anything you pick in the wild whether it is mushroom or fruit
should ALWAYS be placed in the shipping pod the day you pick it! In this
futuristic world, items sell the most when theyíre received at the
height of freshness. If you pick items, then leave them in your scale
pack over night, they will have there sell value decrease by half!
Thatís a major difference! So always try to remember to get those items
out of your scale pack the same day you pick them for max sell value!

OoOoO                 Mining & Jewels (MNJW01)                  oOoOoO
OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

Mining works a little bit different from previous Harvest Moon games.
Firstly, you donít need to bring your hoe for any mining that you do so
leave it on the farm. Secondly, youíll definitely need to bring your
hammer since thatís the tool thatís used exclusively for mining
anything. Mining can only be done in caves and in the Easter ruins. If
you break any small stones on your farm they will ALWAYS ONLY leave you
with bars of stone to ship...they will never contain ore or colored
stones. Any ore that you find in the caves is used solely for selling as
tools level up a bit differently in this game.

Mining is very simple; all you need to do is stand facing a small rock
and use your hammer on it. Sometimes when you break a rock nothing will
happen, but other times a stone will appear. Stones can vary in size and
effect, but regardless they all are very useful! Smaller stones will
give you a smaller effect then a larger stone will.


***************************
A. Stones and their Uses
***************************

There are two ways you can use the stones that you find in the caves.
The first way is to simply use them immediately after picking it up. The
game will ask you if you want to use the power of the stone now. You can
either say yes or no. If you say yes, the power of the stone will be
released and you will gain an effect as long as you stay in the cave. If
you say no the game will then ask you if you want to put the stone in
your bag. You can either say yes or no to this choice as well. Saying no
will result in you throwing the stone away making it unable to be used.
However, if you say yes the stone will go into your bag for you to use
at a later date or to sell after leaving the cave.

Be warned though that upon leaving the cave, all stones (excluding
jewels) that are in your bag will turn into plain ore and will be sold
for 10g as opposed to the plain ore you sometimes find when you crush a
stone which is 20g. There is no listing for crimson, azure, ochre stones
etc. in your items shipped list so donít worry when you notice they
arenít listed there.

The other object that you could find while smashing rocks in the caves
is ore. There are only a few types of ore and they will always go
immediately into your bag. These ores are purely for selling purposes.


***************************
B. Setting Stones
***************************

If you do decide to put the stone into your bag youíll have the option
to ďsetĒ the stone into a slot on one of your tools. You can only set
the stones into tools that youíre currently carrying with you. You
cannot bring the stones home with you because, remember, any stones that
youíre carrying with you turn into plain ore upon exiting the cave.

To set a stone, select the stone first and then press triangle to ďsetĒ
it into a tool. Youíll then be prompted to select which tool you would
like the have the stone set in. You can scroll through your list of
tools using the analog stick or the directional pad on your controller.
Once youíve selected the tool pres triangle once again and youíre done!
Once the stone has been set in the tool, youíll notice that there is a
number next to the stones bar indicating how many uses the stoneís
effect will have. Small stones have a use of 25 while larger stones have
a use of 50. Each time you use your tool with a stone attached to it the
countdown will begin on how many more uses the stones power will affect
the tool.

Additionally, you can only set the size of the stone into an
appropriately leveled tool. Also, you can set multiple stones in the
same tool of appropriate level. For example, you can only set a small
sized stone into a level 1 tool while if you have a level 3 tool, you
can set both a small and large stone plus a jewel if you wanted! You can
even set multiple different colored stones into the same tool. Try
different things and youíll receive different results!

Setting yellow stones into your tool allows your tools to gain extra SP
or skill points when that tool is used. Or in other words, having a
yellow stone set in your tool allows you to gain tool levels faster then
not having one set! Youíll definitely want to set yellow stones into
your tools as often as possible to gain max levels!

Setting red stones may cause you to retain you PP when using a tool. In
other words, if you use a tool with a red stone in it, sometimes youíll
be able to use the tool without wasting PP.

Setting a blue stone to your tools causes the ground where you just used
that tool to be watered as well.


***************************
C. The Wonder of Jewels
***************************

Jewels on the other hand only come from the various treasure chests
scattered throughout the caves. The treasure chests are large and blue
in color so you canít miss them. Jewels in this game are crucial to
progressing in the story line and unlocking more caves to explore as
well as unlocking more plots of land on your farm! Always open a
treasure chest because youíll never know what youíll find.

Aside from their power to unlock new fields for your farm you can also
ďsetĒ these jewels into your tools. This process is exactly the same as
setting a stone into your tools (see above) with one big draw back. Just
like setting a stone into your tool, there is a certain amount of uses
before the extra added effect will expire. For jewels, there is a 99 use
count down and after all the uses have been spent, youíre jewel is gone
forever. I do not recommend using your jewels to set in your tools but I
put the option in here for completions sake.

To progress in the main story line, youíll want to be placing any jewels
you find into those golden looking pedestals around your farm to
ďunlockĒ a field and break that colors seal. You can only break a seal
when you have 4 of the same jewel color. Once you have 4 jewels of the
same color, you must then place them in a square pattern that surrounds
one of the many ďplotsĒ on your farm. When you do this, youíll receive a
message stating that the jewels have begun to glow. Visit your farm the
following day to watch the plot you selected unlock, allowing you to now
till the soil there!

You may pick whichever plot you want to farm on, from the smallest to
the largest plot, the choice is completely yours. Youíll notice that
when you approach a pedestal to set a jewel onto it, youíll be given the
option to place a jewel. If you have more than one jewel of another
color in your pack, and you inspect the pedestal once more, youíll be
given two more choices; one to replace with a different color jewel and
the other to remove the current jewel. You may set, swap and remove
jewels as many times as you like without penalty. When youíre ready to
unlock a field officially, place 4 of the same color jewel on the fields
surrounding pedestals and they will become bound to that field. It is at
this point where you can no longer remove or swap the jewels you have
placed for about a month. So choose which plots you unlock carefully!

Each colored jewel represents a different ďeffectĒ on the land you
unlock. For instance, when you place 4 red jewels to unlock a field, the
ďeffectĒ the red jewels will have on the land is that they will require
you to water more frequently (because the color red in the game
represents fire.) Crops planted in a blue jeweled field however, will
retain water for about a week (without the use of strange moss!) because
the blue color in the game represents water. Youíll want to take into
consideration which jewels you place in which fields based on the
effects they will leave.

The effects of the jewels last only as long as there are 4 identically
colored jewels surrounding a plot. There is no effect if there are any
less they 4 identical jewels or if there are 4 different colored jewels
surrounding the plot (ie. 2 red jewels and 2 blue jewels do not grant
the field any effect.) Because of this, there can be no ďstackedĒ
effects from different colored jewels surrounding the same plot.

After a while (during the first week of autumn in your first year for
those of you using my guide) youíll begin to notice that the pedestals
that contain 4 identical jewels have started ďfloating.Ē When the
pedestals rise out of the ground like this, you can decide whether or
not youíd like to replace them with another set of jewels. You donít
have to replace them, but itís only now that they are floating that you
can do so. So if youíd like the larger plot where you placed your yellow
jewels last time to now hold blue jewels...this it the time to do it.
You may only replace jewels on pedestals that float, you cannot just
remove them. Once a pedestal starts floating, it will continue to do so
for the remainder of the game. Any effects that go along with a set of 4
jewels will start the following day on the new plot.

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

The Harvest Moon genre has been collecting recipes and cooking them in
your kitchen for a long time. Though in the past, you had to first make
sure you had all the proper ingredients either in your fridge or in your
rucksack before being able to successfully create a dish. Not anymore!
In this game your fridge is a never ending abyss of fully stocked
ingredients so you are never lacking components to make those yummy
dishes! There are still some recipes that require you to gather
ingredients, but once you do...youíll never have to gather that produce
ever again if you so choose.

The only requirement on your part is to first learn the skills needed to
cook said dishes. You can learn how to make new dishes by simply
watching the ďCooking LifeĒ show on your TV every week (there are 10
episodes in all) and BAM, you magically know how to cook! ^_^ Of course,
you wonít make the dish perfectly at first but after a few attempts
youíll be cooking like the pros.

Below Iíve listed all the recipes you can learn to make from the cooking
show, any requirements you need before making the dish as well as which
cooking skill these recipes use. So letís get in that kitchen, strap on
your ďkiss the cookĒ apron and start cooking!

Note: If I have not mentioned any requirements underneath a certain
recipe, then you can make this recipe as soon as you acquire the skill!
The majority of recipes will be this way but may take a few times show
up during the actual cooking process. Donít get discouraged and keep
cooking until you receive it!

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO


One of the newest additions to this game is the replacement of the
harvest sprite helpers with a singular robot helper. And this guy can do
it all, water your crops, weed your fields and collect resources for
you! Your helper robot comes into your service during the main story so
you donít have to worry about missing him. Youíll first see your robot
after your first week on the farm as you and Moonlight proceed to visit
the doctors. At this point in the game heíll be in disrepair and will
need sometime before heís once again operational.

On spring 35th, when you go to Dr. Hopeís for your weekly maintenance,
your robot will be up and running and raring to go! One you get him
home, heíll spend his first day scanning your farm and will be
unavailable to give commands to until the next day. If you inspect your
R1 menu, you should notice a brand new icon that is a spitting image of
Forte. All of the commands you can give Forte can be accessed from this
icon. He starts off with 4 basic chores he can accomplish.

**Basic Chores**

The first chore is to remove any garbage on your fields. Selecting this
command will allow Forte to remove any unnecessary items such as dog
poop and dead plants (when the seasons change.)

The second chore allows Forte to water your crops for you. He has a set
number of squares he will water in a day and itís not as much as youíd
think. Still, if you have a small farm it should be enough to youíre
your needs. However, if Forte waters your crops, you do not gain any
experience for your watering can. Until you reach level 3 with your
watering can I highly suggest keeping this command turned off.

The third chore will allow Forte to collect any materials that are in
your fields and will automatically ship them for you. Anytime you chop a
branch or break a stone, you have a chance that either a stone bar or a
wood pile will be left behind. If you have this chore selected, you do
not need to pick up the pieces left behind as Forte will do it for you.
He will only collect the resources; he will not chop branches or break
any stones for you.

The fourth chore will allow Forte to prepare the soil on your farm. This
chore ďcanĒ be useful if youíre already maxed out with your tools. Forte
will pick up any stray items laying about your fields. He will collect
any weeds, small rocks, dog poop, and dead plants for you. He simply
removes these items and does not ship anything, so you lose the
opportunity to smash the rocks yourself if you have this option
selected.

There is no limit to how many chores you can command Forte to
accomplish. You may choose to have all 4 chores selected, or you may
only want one or two, or you may not want any at all! Itís totally up to
you and your style of game play.

During the end of the summer season, youíll have an event when you go to
Dr. Hopeís on Sunday, where he will mention that there was a coolent
leak inside the cave that held the Spring Festival. The coolent has
flooded the cave with fumes that no human can stand for very long. You
are then instructed to clear the fumes out from the cave with herbs.
Depending on which herbs you choose to plant, you will have to wait
around 7-10 days until the air is clear of fumes. After the fumes have
dissipated, youíll be greeted by Marco (whoís coolent it was that
leaked) standing outside the cave. He apologizes for the leak and offers
to upgrade your helper robot for you. The upgrades he plans on
installing will be complete the very next day.

You should receive this event during the first week of autumn. The day
after Marco upgrades Forte, take a look at his new menu by scrolling
over on screen (after selecting his icon on your menu screen first) and
you should see an entire new listing of things he can now do! However,
be careful when picking which upgrade you want as itís a one time deal
and once picked your choice cannot be changed for the rest of the day!
In addition, all of the upgrades affect YOU and not your helper robot,
whereas all of Fortes chores affect only HIM.

There are four options that you can upgrade and all are good
candidates...pick whichever you feel fits best with your play style!
Youíll undergo the effect of whatever you picked for an entire day
starting. However, the day after youíve used the effect, the upgrade you
picked the previous day will be temporarily undergoing maintenance and
unusable for up to 4 days (depending on the skill) so youíll have to
pick another upgrade if you want to gain the added effects from it. You
can choose to use these upgrades as you see fit or not at all. You can
have only one upgrade in use at a time but there is no limit to how many
chores you can have set in conjunction! So, you can have any mixture of
chores and an upgrade at your disposal.

**Upgrades**

The first upgrade is entitled ďCarryĒ and will prevent the player from
getting tired from simple farm work...So whatís considered simple farm
work? Anything that you can do on your farm such as watering crops,
tilling soil, breaking branches etc. However, while smashing small rocks
on your farm counts as a farm work, breaking any small rocks in caves
does not. Carry will undergo maintenance for 1 full day after use.

The second upgrade is called ďQuickĒ and will help you regain your PP
faster than normal. If you find yourself running out of energy quickly
during the day, this may be a good choice for you! Quick will undergo
maintenance for 2 full days after use.

The third upgrade is known as ďPowerĒ and will prevent the player from
getting tired from ANY kind of work, on the farm or otherwise. Power
will undergo maintenance for 3 full days after use.

The fourth upgrade is listed as ďChargeĒ and when selected, will double
the amount of PP the player has! If you experience energy problems
during the day and Quick is undergoing maintenance, this is a good
second choice. Quick will undergo maintenance for 4 full days after use.


OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo
OoOoO                   Farm Animals (FMAN01)                   oOoOoO
OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

What would a farm be without animals?! Well Iím glad you asked that
question because in this section Iím going to tell you everything I know
about farm animals. First and foremost, you cannot keep any animals on
your farm before you have obtained and placed the 4 blue jewels on the
altars at your farm. Once youíve meet this requirement you may now begin
purchasing animals!


***Chickens***

If you want to buy a chicken you must first obtain a cluck-o-matic. To
find one of these items, speak with Jonathon at the ranch. He can
usually be found in the barn, is wearing a pink shirt and has an afro.
He is proud that you broke the seal on the farm and sends you a cluck-o-
matic the very next day after you speak with him! This machine will
appear in the chicken area of your storage area.

To place an order for a chicken, watch the world ranch channel on your
TV and select the Buy livestock option. Chickens cost 500g and will
appear in your chicken area of the ruins the next day. Chickens will lay
eggs daily at 50g per egg but if you turn that egg into mayonnaise it
can be sold for 200g per mayo! You must however convert the egg into
mayo yourself as well as remember to ship it yourself.

After receiving the cluck-o-matic you can now start purchasing chickens.
You only need to ever buy one chicken since you can incubate that
chickens eggs to hatch your own baby chicks! Simply pick up an egg off
of the conveyer belt and place it in the round incubator thatís next to
the hay on the floor (itís in the lower right corner of the chicken
area). It takes 3 days for your egg to hatch and become a chick. You
must name you chick before it hatches in the same manner you did when
you first bought your chicken.

Unlike other Harvest Moons to date, you cannot name your own animals
which I thought was a bit of a bummer. Thereís a list of pre-picked
names for you to choose from. If you arenít fond of a certain name
select it anyways but choose the ďNOĒ response to the ďdo you like this
nameĒ question to bring up a new set of names. You can continue in this
fashion scrolling through the different names until you find one that
you like. The animal you just bought will arrive at your farm the very
next day.

Chickens do not need to be fed or given water to but to help increase
their happiness make sure to brush them everyday. Wondering where your
chickens are? If you walk to the upper left of this room you will see a
blue door; this door leads to an outside grazing area. To brush you
animals stand next to the animal you want to brush and press the
triangle button. A heart will appear above the animal you brushed
causing their affection for you to increase. Animals with a higher
affection will produce higher priced goods and sell for a higher price.

You donít need to worry about shipping your eggs as they will be
automatically shipped everyday for you. The only time you should worry
about shipping something would be if you wanted to make mayonnaise in
which case you need to manually pick up and egg, face the mayonnaise
maker (which is directly next to your conveyer belt on the left) and
throw in egg in. A bottle of mayo will come popping back out! Donít
forget that you will still need to throw the mayo into the shipping pod
yourself as this does not get automatically shipped.

***Sheep***

If you want to buy a sheep you must first obtain a cluck-o-matic and own
a chicken. Then you must obtain a Baa-o-matic from Jonathon who is
usually be found in the barn and is wearing a pink shirt. This machine
will appear in the sheep area of your storage area.

To place an order for a sheep, watch the world ranch channel on your TV
and select the Buy livestock option. Sheep cost 1500g and will appear in
your sheep area of the ruins the next day. Sheep will grow wool which
will be sheared every Friday evening and will sell for 800g per pelt.
All wool will be automatically shipped for you.

Unlike other Harvest Moons to date, you cannot name your own animals
which I thought was a bit of a bummer. Thereís a list of pre-picked
names for you to choose from. If you arenít fond of a certain name
select it anyways but choose the ďNOĒ response to the ďdo you like this
nameĒ question to bring up a new set of names. You can continue in this
fashion scrolling through the different names until you find one that
you like. The animal you just bought will arrive at your farm the very
next day. Sheep cannot be breed or impregnated so if you want any more
sheep youíll have to continue to purchase them from the TV.

Sheep do not need to be fed or given water to but to help increase their
happiness make sure to brush them everyday. To brush you animals stand
next to the animal you want to brush and press the triangle button. A
heart will appear above the animal you brushed causing their affection
for you to increase. Animals with a higher affection will produce higher
priced goods and sell for a higher price.

You donít need to worry about shearing your sheep by hand. Sheep will be
automatically sheared every Friday at 17:30pm. However, your sheep will
need to wait one week after purchase to develop wool to ship before they
can be sheared. You cannot breed sheep on your farm and must continue to
buy more sheep if you want to raise additional livestock.

You can view a neat event every Friday evening if you wish. Make sure
youíre inside the sheep area when the clock reads 17:30. During this
time you get to watch the shearing of the sheep! They start out fuzzy,
go through the shearing machine and come out smooth as a babyís bottom.
Itís a little bonus for you for being in the right place at the right
time :) You obviously must have sheep to view this event!

***Cows***

If you want to buy a cow you must first obtain a cluck-o-matic and own a
chicken as well as owning a baa-o-matic and owning a sheep. Then you
must obtain a Moo-o-matic from Jonathon who is usually be found in the
barn and is wearing a pink shirt. This machine will appear in the cow
area of your storage area.

To place an order for a cow, watch the world ranch channel on your TV
and select the Buy livestock option. Sheep cost 3500g and will appear in
your cow area of the ruins the next day. Cows will give milk daily which
will sell for 150g per can of milk. You can turn that milk into cheese
which will sell for 250g per cheese block. You must remember to convert
any milk into cheese yourself and remember to ship it yourself.

There are two different types of cows you can choose from: Holsteins or
Jersey. Holsteins are black & white cows while the Jersey cows are brown
colored. Regardless of type, all the cows you purchase are female. Cows
cannot be breed or impregnated so if you want any more cows youíll have
to continue to purchase them from the TV.

Unlike other Harvest Moons to date, you cannot name your own animals
which I thought was a bit of a bummer. Thereís a list of pre-picked
names for you to choose from. If you arenít fond of a certain name
select it anyways but choose the ďNOĒ response to the ďdo you like this
nameĒ question to bring up a new set of names. You can continue in this
fashion scrolling through the different names until you find one that
you like. The animal you just bought will arrive at your farm the very
next day.

Cows do not need to be fed or given water to but to help increase their
happiness make sure to brush them everyday. Wondering where your cows
are? If you walk to the upper left of this room you will see a blue
door; this door leads to an outside grazing area. To brush you animals
stand next to the animal you want to brush and press the triangle
button. A heart will appear above the animal you brushed causing their
affection for you to increase. Animals with a higher affection will
produce higher priced goods and sell for a higher price.

You donít need to worry about shipping the milk that your cattle produce
yourself as they will be automatically shipped everyday for you. The
only time you should worry about shipping something would be if you
wanted to make cheese in which case you need to manually pick up some
milk, face the cheese maker (which is directly next to your conveyer
belt on the right side) and throw in the milk. A slab of cheese will
come popping back out! Donít forget that you will still need to throw
the cheese into the shipping pod yourself as this does not get
automatically shipped.

***Horses***

You canít own a horse in this game but you can still ride them however!
Once you have obtained a cluck-o-matic, Baa-o-matic and Moo-o-matic
speak with Jonathon again until he mentions the wild horses. He thinks
he remembers something about the fisherman knowing how to blow a certain
tune by whistling that will allow you to jump on a wild horses back and
ride it!

If you speak to the fisherman he will ask you if you want to learn how
to whistle, say YES to learn! After learning the special tune, approach
a wild horse that is running on the plains (only the large brown ones
work as the small grey one canít support your weight) and press the
triangle button. You will then jump on the horses back and ride around
in a circle. Time does not elapse while riding the horse. You however
cannot control the direction of the horse and you can only ride in a
circle...its kinda lame actually but when you think about it, you do
have a ridiculously amazing buggy that moves pretty darn fast!

***Second Year Ranching***

When you tune into this channel during your second year playing, youíll
hear an announcement of a special livestock sale. Youíll then be
prompted to listen to the explanation section for more details. Under
the ďhear explanationĒ section select the topic entitled ďAbout []
LivestockĒ itíll be the last selection before the cancel option.

Apparently the ranchers have been trying to create an animal that you
can own in which you give only little attention too and itíll still
thrive! Of course, they mention that it ďalmostĒ succeeded which means
the effect is temporary. From now on, when you purchase any livestock
from the TV youíll be given an option of ďnormalĒ animals (which will
cost the default price) or one of these ďspecialĒ animals which will
vary in price but generally are expensive.

Give attention to these special animals and their happiness will go up
faster than normal animals! Use motherís touch in conjunction with your
regular brush and even more happiness will occur. However, since these
animals are still in beta testing, the increased happiness effect wears
off in a certain number of days. The number of days is random and will
vary daily, so check the ranch channel often!

These animals are only beneficial to those looking to make a profit in
selling off their livestock. For those of you that simply want to own
livestock and could care less if you sold them, then buy the ďnormalĒ
animals and save yourself some money.

Melancholy Woods - Part 1

	Back then, I was still a human being.

	I lived happily with my mother,
	father, sister and brother.

	My father was a kind man who was
	highly regarded amongst everyone.

	And my mother was always smiling.
	She had a smile that could light up
	a room like a ray of sunshine.

	My older brother and sister loved
	me and would always play with me.

	We would fight sometimes, but we
	always made up before bedtime.

	Our house was filled with laughter.

	Thatís the last thing I remember
	of the time when I was still happy.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 2

	Suddenly our luck changed.

	I was still young at the time and
	there was no one who would explain
	exactly what was going on.

	But I could tell that the atmosphere
	at our house had changed. I still
	remember that.

	My father rarely came home.

	And my mother stopped smiling.

	My brother and sister always hoped
	that they would see my mother or
	father smile, but they never did.

	We lived in this tense atmosphere
	for some time, until...

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 3

	The thing that finally changed
	everything was...

	My fatherís death.

	I donít remember what he looked
	like at the time of his death.

	But the expression on my motherís
	face is burned into my memory.

	ďI hear he left his family with a
	lot of debt.Ē

	I overheard the adults saying this at
	my fatherís funeral.

	Mt brother told me what it meant
	later that night.

	My father had loaned money to
	a friend who had been deep in debt.

	But that friend had disappeared
	with the money, leaving my father
	almost penniless.

	How did he die?
	Nobody ever really told me.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods Ė Part 4

	I couldnít imagine what we were
	going to do without my father.

	But soon the reality of it all struck
	home.

	In order to pay back the money that
	my father had borrowed for his
	friend...

	We had to sell the house that we
	loved.

	The house that was so full of memories
	of my father and our time together.

	These were the first things that I
	lost, but they were not the last.

	When youíre a child, there are so
	many things that are out of your
	hands...

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods Ė Part 5

	We began a new life in a run-down
	old apartment...

	My mother worked even harder than
	my father to support us.

	She worked night and day at any
	job she could get.

	But there was no way that she
	could keep that up for long.

	Finally, she collapsed from exhaustion.

	My brother and sister started working
	part time to help our mother.

	She had no choice but to let her
	children work to make up for her
	disability.

	But it plunged my mother further
	into her depression.

	We were happy to do anything we had
	to do, just so that we could be
	together, but...

	.................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods Ė Part 6

	It was our motherís birthday.

	We had very little money, but we
	managed to save a bit to buy her
	something.

	My brother, sister, and I snuck out
	and went shopping.

	My brother bought a small cake that
	my mother liked.

	And my sister picked some pretty
	flowers.

	And while I wasnít much of an artist,
	I did my best to draw a picture of
	my mother to give to her.

	We all went home together.

	But our home was...

	Gone.

	.................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods Ė Part 7

	They said the fire had started in
	an apartment below ours...

	The apartment building burned
	to the ground.

	Someone there said that they had
	tried to help our mother escape.

	But they said that she had refused his
	attempts to rescue her, and so she
	had died.

	We couldnít believe it!

	Did our mother really want to say
	goodbye to her own children forever?

	The three of use just stood there,
	staring at the smoking wreck that
	had been out home.

	I was still small at the time, but I
	remember what I realized then...

	If you donít keep the people who
	you love close to you at all times,
	you canít protect them.

	.................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods Ė Part 8

	We didnít have any close relatives,
       so there was talk of putting us into
       some kind of orphanage.

       But my brother and sister made it
       clear that they were going to work
       hard to support us.

       I was terrified of losing anything
       else in my life.

       So I couldnít stand to be away from
       my brother and sister even for a
       short time.

       They didnít really have time to be
       dealing with me, butÖ

       They understood how I felt and did
       their best to make me feel better.

       They became like a father and mother
       to me.

       I was just starting to adjust to this
       new life of ours whenÖ

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 9

	It was Christmas.

	It had snowed the previous night,
	making it a lovely white Christmas.

	My brother and sister and I had
	gone out.

	My brother was holding my right
	hand and my sister was holding my
	left.

	The town was decorated with festive
	lights and everyone in the streets
	seemed somehow cheerful.

	Encouraged by this atmosphere, I
	started to feel the spirit of the
	season.

	My brother and sister were obviously
	happy at this change in me.

	I swore that I would do something to
	repay my brother and sister for all
	the kindness that they had shown me.

	I made myself a promise.
	I was going to be strong and help them
	as they had helped me.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 10

	We were just coming home from our
	meager Christmas celebration when
	it happened.

	The three of us were walking in the
	falling snow.

	I felt like there wasnít anything the
	three of us couldnít do if we put our
	minds to it.

	But of course that was just an illusion.

	Before I knew what had happened,
	I was alone.

	It was as if all of the sounds in the
	world had been snuffed out, leaving
	me in silence.

	Somehow, I had let go of their hands.

	And when I turned around to look
	for them, I saw the one thing that I
	never wanted to see.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 11

	Had I gotten ahead of my brother and
	sister? Or had they gotten ahead of me?

	I canít remember much about that
	night...

	But I do know that I was only saved
	by the slimmest of chances.

	A car skid on the ice and
	ran up onto the sidewalk, hitting
	my brother and sister.

	The snow stopped falling.

	I stayed with them and did
	everything I could to keep from
	losing them, but it was all in vain.

	I couldnít save them.

	From that moment on, it was like
	something in my brain just shut
	down.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 12

	My heart was wrapped in darkness.

	I had closed my heart off. Shut it
	away in the dark and melancholy
	woods.

	I would never let myself be hurt
	again.

	Many people, doctors probably,
	examined me.

	But I had no idea what they were
	saying. I just didnít care.

	I wanted to be a robot.

	Then I could just have them erase
	these painful memories.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 13

	I couldnít eat.

	I didnít know if I was dead or alive.

	I spent day after day like this in
	a place I suppose was a hospital.

	Whenever I saw or heard anything...

	It reminded me of all of the sad
	things that had happened to me.

	The only thing that I could to do
	was to become a robot.

	I wouldnít see, or hear, or feel
	anything. And I wouldnít have to
	remember.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 14

	One day, the doctor called me from
	my room.

	I was wheeled down the hospital
	hallway in my wheelchair

	Finally, we arrived at a room and I
	was taken inside.

	Only to see...

	My sister.

	She was wrapped all in bandages,
	from head to tow, but she was alive.

	When my sister saw me, she smiled
	kindly and began to cry tears of
	joy.

	But as for me...

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 15

	My brother didnít make it, but
	my sister had survived.

	But even discovering that my sister
	lived could not get me to open up
	my heart.

	Even as I looked at my sisterís face.
	I felt nothing, like a robot. The doctor
	was clearly disappointed.

	But my sister didnít allow my
	reaction to affect her.

	She said that it was only natural,
	given what I had been through.

	And she kindly accepted me as I
	was.

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 16

	Despite the pain from her injuries...

	My sister made time in between her
	rehabilitation sessions...

	And spent as much time as she
	could with me.

	I said nothing and no trace of emotion
	showed on my face.

	Someone watching us might think she
	was talking to a robot.

	But my sister didnít let it bother her.
	She kept talking to me...

	And sometimes she sat next to me
	and read me books...

       .................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 17

	My sister always talked about
	inconsequential things like the weather,
	or how pretty the flowers were.

	But that day was different.

	She apologized to me for making
	me worry so much.

	Just then a single tear fell down
	my cheek.

	I was happy to have my sister
	back.

	But I knew that someday I would
	have to lose her again.

	My fear of losing her prevented
	me from returning to reality...

	.................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 18

	Maybe it was because my sister
	was so much older than I was, but
	when our parents died...

	She seemed to be strong enough to
	deal with almost anything.

	And now she was dealing with me.
	She had accepted me as I was.

	I wasnít able to return to how I
	once was, but...

	After I while I did start to think that
	I saw the light at the end of the tunnel.

	She stayed with me all the time,
	supporting me with her gentle
	strength.

	.................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Part 19

	On the day that I was first allowed
	to leave the hospital...

	My sister and I took our first walk
	in ages. We walked around the town.

	I had been terrified of going out...

	But my sister walked beside me,
	gently holding my hand.

	Our family of five had been reduced
	to only two.

	And one of us was little more than
	a robot...

	But my sister walked on, never
	faltering, never pausing.

	She just walked on...

	.................To be Continued.


Melancholy Woods - Final Episode

	Just then, a car came driving
	toward us at high speed.

	I froze, unable to move.

	But my sister took my hand and
	easily walked us out of the path
	of the car.

	She hugged me, even as I stood
	there frozen.

	She said that neither one of us could
	promise not to die...

	But we could promise to do our best
	to live long, happy lives.

	She said that instead of avoiding
	making friends for fear of losing
	them...

	We should work together to enjoy
	the time we had.

	And then she laughed...

Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 1

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: One Cooking Life, I explain the
	basics of cooking in a way that even
	beginners can easily understand.

	Dorothy: Iím sure many of you rarely do
	anything in the kitchen. Perhaps some
	of you have never cooked before.

	Dorothy: But I want you to realize that
	cooking is not difficult.

	Dorothy: Why donít you start by getting
	in the kitchen and boiling some water?
	That doesnít sound too hard, does it?

	Dorothy: You can use that water to make
	a relaxing cup of tea...

	Dorothy: And youíll be learning about
	the wonderful world of cooking at the
	same time.

	Dorothy: When the program is over, why
	not go right into your kitchen and try
	out some of the dishes I talked about?

	Dorothy: You might just find that you
	enjoy cooking. It could make your life
	even more enjoyable.

	Dorothy: In the upcoming weeks, we will
	be introducing 4 main kinds of cooking:
	cutting, boiling, grilling and baking.

	Dorothy: We will be learning something
	new each week, so I hope youíll look
	forward to out time together.

	Dorothy: Our time for the today is up, but
	I hope youíll try making yourself a cup
	of tea today. Try it! Youíll like it!

	Dorothy: See you next week!
	Enjoy your cooking life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 2

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
	weíre going to talk about dishes that
	require cutting.

	Dorothy: It doesnít matter what kind
	of knife you use, as long as itís sharp
	enough to cut the food. Just have fun.

	Dorothy: They say that itís important
	to bend your fingers under when cutting
	so as not to cut yourself, but...

	Dorothy: Donít worry too much about
	that right now. Itís best to do whatever
	seems easiest for you.

	Dorothy: If youíre not used to cutting
	take your time. But if youíre an old
	hand at it, you can really go to town.

	Dorothy: If you donít know how big to
	cut something, just try cutting it to a
	size that feels right to you.

	Dorothy: If, when it is time to eat it,
	you feel that it was too big or small,
	you can do it differently next time.

	Dorothy: I also recommend that you try
	breaking things up with your hands
	sometimes.

	Dorothy: Youíd be surprised how many
	housewives use cooking to release
	their stress...In fact...

	Dorothy: Oh, Iím sorry...
	I got a little off the topic there.

	Dorothy: when youíre done cutting up
	your ingredients, add some dressing
	or mayonnaise and itís ready to eat!

	Dorothy: I recommend that you look in
	your refrigerator for something that
	you can cut up today.

	Dorothy: See you next week!
	Enjoy your cooking life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 3

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
	weíre going to talk about how to wash
	things like vegetables.

	Dorothy: I imagine that some of you
	tired making a salad after watching
	last weekís show.

	Dorothy: On this island crops are grown
	using safe fertilizers and herbicides
	so theyíre safe to eat without washing.

	Dorothy: But leaving dirt one them can
	ruin an otherwise delicious dish.

	Dorothy: You might want to use a scrub
	brush to wash vegetables that grow in
	the ground, like carrots and potatoes.

	Dorothy: Things that grow above ground
	like tomatoes and cucumbers absorb water
	easily, so just give them a quick wash.

	Dorothy: When washing leafy vegetables,
	be sure to use plenty of water to
	remove the first from their roots.

	Dorothy: Washing rice is the same as
	washing vegetables -- you donít want to
	use any kind of soap or detergent.

	Dorothy: When washing rice, be sure
	to do it quickly so that that the rice
	doesnít absorb the dirty water.

	Dorothy: And donít forget that cleaning
	up is part of cooking.

	Dorothy: You wonít feel good about what
	youíve made if your kitchen is a mess
	afterwards.

	Dorothy: Use the free time you have
	while grilling or boiling foods to
	clean up the kitchen.

	Dorothy: And of course, if you have a
	fully automatic dishwater, you just
	have to fill it up and start it.

	Dorothy: See you next week!
	Enjoy your Cooking Life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 4

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
	weíre going to talk about boiling
	different foods.

	Dorothy: This involves putting water and
	stock into a pot, adding your
	ingredients, and simmering them.

	Dorothy: You can make a soup or stew
	out of almost any kind of ingredients.

	Dorothy: Just pick out a few things
	that you would like to eat and throw
	them in the pot!

	Dorothy: Of course, you canít expect to
	be making soup like a pro the first time
	you try, so start with something simple.

	Dorothy: You might just try boiling
	some potatoes or corn in a little salt
	water, for example.

	Dorothy: You can also buy instant curry
	or stew mixes that you just add to
	boiled vegetables for an easy dinner.

	Dorothy: Since these allow you to make
	something tasty without a lot of work,
	why not use one to make some stew?

	Dorothy: Add your vegetables to the pot
	and heat it until it begins to boil.
	Then turn down the heat.

	Dorothy: All you have to do is simmer
	the vegetables until theyíre done, while
	scooping off the foam off the top.

	Dorothy: The best way to tell if
	vegetables are done is to take out one
	of the larger pieces and taste it.

	Dorothy: Once the vegetables are done,
	add your favorite flavoring mix and
	youíre finished!

	Dorothy: See you next week!
	Enjoy your Cooking Life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 5

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
	weíre going to further explore the
	world of cutting.

	Dorothy: Did you know that you can use
	many of the fruits and vegetables found
	on Heartflame Island to make juice?

	Dorothy: There are various ways of
	making juice, but today weíre going
	to use a juicer.

	Dorothy: It lets you to enjoy the pure
	flavor of fruits and vegetables, and
	itís also quite healthy. I recommend it.

	Dorothy: Before putting the ingredients
	into the juicer, be sure to cut them up
	into appropriately sized pieces.

	Dorothy: This is true of other kinds of
	cooking as well.

	Dorothy: You can use sugar, honey, milk
	or yogurt to add flavor.

	Dorothy: Add some herbs or sliced
	fruits as a garnish to make it
	even prettier.

	Dorothy: By the way, kale is one of the
	few things that can be grown in the
	winter, and is quite good for you.

	Dorothy: But there are many people who
	donít like the way it tastes or smells,
	so try mixing it with other juices.

	Dorothy: As a matter of fact, Iím
	looking into a way that will make kale
	juice even easier to drink.

	Dorothy: I think youíll find that
	making juice is a fun and fascinating
	pastime. Give it a try!

       Dorothy: See you next week!
       Enjoy your cooking life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 6

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: We talked about boiling
	vegetables to make a stew awhile ago.
	Did your stew turn out well?

	Dorothy: This time, weíre going to do
	something a little more advanced
	and make our own seasonings.

	Dorothy: Japanese cooking generally
	uses things like sugar, miso, and soy
	sauce fro seasoning.

	Dorothy: Western food often uses salt,
	pepper and wine.

	Dorothy: In either case, the key to
	making something taste good is
	to start with good stock.

	Dorothy: There are many kinds of stock
	used in Japanese cooking: seaweed, fish or
	shiitake mushrooms...

	Dorothy: In Western cooking, you often
	make stock with chicken or beef bones
	mixed with herbs and vegetables.

	Dorothy: But people who are just
	beginners or who donít have much
	time are better off using instant stock.

	Dorothy: Thereís a simple phrase to
	help you remember the order in which
	to add seasonings in Japanese cooking.

	Dorothy: ďSome Starfish Vex Sea
	Mammals.Ē In other words, add Sugar,
	Salt, Vinegar, Soy Sauce, and Miso.

	Dorothy: But in the end, as long as it
	tastes good, it doesnít really matter
	that much what order you use.

	Dorothy: cooking takes
	practice. You canít expect everything
	to turn out perfectly in the first time.

	Dorothy: As you make the same dishes
	over and over, youíll learn what works
	best. Donít be discouraged by mistakes.

       Dorothy: See you next week!
       Enjoy your cooking life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 7

       Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

       Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
       weíre going to talk about grilling.

       Dorothy: Grilling and its cousin frying
	involve cooking food over direct
	heat on a grill or a frying pan.

	Dorothy: Using an iron frying pan or
	griddle helps distribute the heat
	evenly, for a nicely browned result.

	Dorothy: Most ingredients will taste
	just great with just a simple sprinkling
	of salt and pepper.

	Dorothy: The amount of time you grill
	your food is up to you, but
	done is better than raw.

	Dorothy: Foods that can be eaten raw or
	that are very fresh can be just given
	a quick pass over the frying pan.

	Dorothy: If you want to make sure that
	the food is cooked through and through,
	cover the food while grilling it.

	Dorothy: Try grilling yourself. I think
	youíll find it easy and surprisingly
	challenging at the same time.

	Dorothy: See you next week!
	Enjoy your Cooking Life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life Ė Part 8

       Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

       Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
       weíre going to talk more about
       grilling.

       Dorothy: Actually, ďroastingĒ might be
       the more appropriate term, since
       weíll be cooking over an open flame.

       Dorothy: Cooking with fire is the
       oldest form of cooking,
       dating back to prehistory.

       Dorothy: Have you ever seen a fish on a
       skewer being roasted over an open
       fire?

       Dorothy: This is actually one of the
       tastiest ways to east fish.

       Dorothy: And of course, doing the same
       thing to meat is called ďbarbecuingĒ
       and is also very popular.

       Dorothy: However, because it creates a
       lot of smoke, itís probably best done
       outside.

       Dorothy: If you ever have a chance to
       go camping, I recommend that you try
       barbequing.

       Dorothy: Of course, if you have a
       kitchen with a smoke ventilation system,
       you can barbecue anytime you like.

       Dorothy: See you next week!
       Enjoy your cooking life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 9

	Dorothy: Hello, Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: This week on Cooking Life,
	weíre going to talk about baking.

	Dorothy: Even people who cook often
	will sometimes say that they donít bake
	much.

	Dorothy: But if you use your oven well,
	youíll find that a new world of cakes,
	cookies, and breads opens up to you.

	Dorothy: And itís really not hard
	to do.

	Dorothy: You just have to prepare the
	ingredients, put them in the oven,
	and wait!

	Dorothy: Of course, this means that the
	preparation stage is very important,
	as is the temperature of your oven.

	Dorothy: Still, if youíve been watching
	Cooking Life all this time, it should be
	easy for you.

	Dorothy: Your oven will adjust its
	temperature itself, so you just have
	to put in the food at the proper time.

	Dorothy: Why not try baking a meat or
	fish dish, along with some vegetables to
	go on the side?

	Dorothy: See you next week!
	Enjoy your Cooking Life!


Dorothyís Cooking Life - Part 10

	Dorothy: Hello. Dorothy Gremley here.

	Dorothy: This is the last episode of
	Cooking Life so Iíd like to try
	baking a special cake.

	Dorothy: Since you can leave the
	temperature to your oven, weíre going
	to concentrate on making your cake rise.

	Dorothy: A cake rises when the air
	bubbles in the batter expand in the heat
	of the oven.

	Dorothy: You want to mix the batter so
	not to pop all of these bubbles,
	but thatís easier said than done.

	Dorothy: It took me quite a while
	before my cakes would rise properly.

	Dorothy: If you donít enjoy that kind
	of experience, donít be ashamed to
	buy a pre-made cake from the store.

	Dorothy: Once the cake is done, itís
	time to decorate it.

	Dorothy: You can use frosting, seasonal
	fruits, or whipped cream to add some
	flair to your creation.

	Dorothy: Or you might even try using
	nuts or herbs for a distinctive touch.

	Dorothy: Thank you all for watching
	Cooking Life all this time.

	Dorothy: I hope you will keep up with
	your cooking from now on. Just try it
	whenever you have some free time.

	Dorothy: If you do, Iím sure that
	youíll find that cooking has added
	something new and fun to your life.

	Dorothy: Goodbye everyone!
	Enjoy your Cooking Life!

	I just donít know...

	Scary Cat: You look like you donít
	believe me. Okay, itís technically
	true that Iím not your mother...

	Scary Cat: But itís not every day that a
	kitten looking for a mother and a
	cat looking for a kitten meet.

	Scary Cat: Donít you think weíd both be

	was your mother?

	Hmm.........

	But sheís a grown-up cat.
	She must know what sheís talking

	vegetarian, so go to that field over
	there and get me a nice fat turnip.

	A turnip? Iíve never eaten one of
	those, but if my new Mommy likes

	Okay! Here I go!
	Humdedumdedum...

	So this is a turnip, huh? Theyíre pretty

	fault I have sensitive paws!

	Fake Mommy: Whatís so wrong about
	getting somebody to help out? Tell me that!
	Sniff...

	..........................

	Iím starting to feel a little sorry
	for her now.

	I thought she was scary, but sheís

	in her life...

	Iím sure growing up wasnít easy
	for her.

	he had met.

	Fake Mommy: But then why did he have to
	run away with that other cat?

	Fake Mommy: Itís not like sensitive paws
	and a little balding is a bad thing!

	Fake Mommy: Oh, I hate them all!
	Iíll never forgive you, Bruce!
	Never!!

	............................

	Right, whatever. Iím getting a
	little tired of this whole thing.

	My fake Mommy was looking at me

	Fake Mommy: You didnít just fall asleep
	while I was telling you the heart-
	wrenching story of my life, did you?

	Ugh...That probably wasnít such a
	good idea...

	Kitten: Yes. I fell asleep.

	No matter what the situation, I
	cannot tell a lie.

	I did it! Iíd like to tell myself,
	ďWell done, self! You didnít lie.Ē

	Fake Mommy: I see....

	PUSSSSHHHHH!

	Kitten: Ouch!

	My fake Mommy pushed me and
	sent me flying through the air.

	It was scary, but kind of fun
	to fly...

	CRASH!

ďWhereís My Mommy? A Kittenís JourneyĒ - Part 14

	W-Where am I?
	Ouch...My head hurts...

	But why does my head hurt then...?

	Whoa! Thereís a big rock next to
	me, and itís split in half! Do you
	think I hit it with my head?

	.......................

	I-Iím lucky to be alive!
	Thank you, Miss Cute!
	Wait, what does that mean?

	Rumble rumble...

	My stomach is grumbling.
	Iím hungry!

	Hey, what happened to my
	fake Mommy?

	She must have left me while I was
	unconscious. How mean...

	RUMBLE RUMBLE...

	Ugh...Iím starting to feel faint...
	I hope I didnít survive that accident
	just to die of hunger!

	Splash!!

	What the?
	Thereís a lake here!
	And there are fish in it!

	.................To be Continued.


ďWhereís My Mommy? A Kittenís JourneyĒ - Part 15

	I ran into the lake as visions of
	feasting on the fish filled my head.

	Wow! Look at all the big fish!

	I wonder which one I should eat first.
	Hmm. That is a problem...But itís the
	kind of problem I donít mind having!

	.........................

	I canít reach them...

	Splish splash...

	M-My paws canít reach them!

	There are so many fish right in
	front of me, but I canít reach any
	of them!

	Whoops!

	Splash! Cough cough cough...

	I-I fell into the lake!
	A lot of fish are coming my way!

	Itís a regular buffet!

	What am I saying?
	I canít swim!

	.................To be Continued.


Whereís My Mommy? A Kittenís Journey - Part 16

	I was trying to catch a fish when I
	slipped and fell into the lake.

	The fish came swimming up toward me,
	but because I canít swim, I couldnít
	catch and eat any of them...

	Blub Blub!

	Ouch! What was that?

	Hey! One of the big fish bit
	my tail!

	Cats canít be eaten by fish!
	Can they?

	If that fish swallows my up to my
	stomach, Iíd look like a mermaid!

	Then I could swim just like a fish.
	That would be nice...

	Wait, I canít daydream all day.

	If they eat cats...oh no!

	I donít want to be a fishís dinner!
	Iím supposed to be the one eating
	the fish!

	Swoop!

	.................To be Continued.


Whereís My Mommy? A Kittenís Journey - Part 17

	What happened?
	It looks like someone scooped me
	up from the lake...

	Old Man: What have we here? I thought
	someone was making a ruckus in the
	garden. It was a kitten!

	Old Man: And not a very coordinated
	kitten at that! Almost getting eaten
	by those koi fish!

	Old Man: I thought it was that fat cat
	come to raid my turnip fields again.

	That old man...
	He saved my life!

	Iíll have to do something to repay
	him someday!

	Old Lady: Oh, a little kitty-cat.
	What happened to the poor thing?

	Old Man: The koi in the pond were about
	to eat it.

	Old Lady: Oh dear me...

	Old Lady: Itís a good thing we found it
	when I did. Those koi will eat
	anything.

	Whew, that was a close one!

	Old Lady: You know, this kitten looks
	just like the cat next door. You donít
	suppose theyíre related, hmm?

	The cat next door looks just like
	me? Could it be?

	.................To be Continued.


Whereís My Mommy? A Kittenís Journey - Part 18

	I started running for the house next
	door!

	But all I saw was the cat who
	was pretending to be my Mommy!

	Fake Mommy: You still alive?

	Wow... No matter how many times
	I look at her, sheís still scary.

	Hey, wait a minute... Could she be the
	fat cat that the old man was talking
	about?

	That must be why she sent me over
	to get the turnips instead of her.

	Well I wonít let anyone steal from that
	old man! He saved my life! Iím going
	to have to fight to defend his fields!

	Kitten: I wonít let you steal any more
	turnips! Prepare for battle!

	Yes! I was a hero fighting for
	the cause of truth and justice!

	PUSSSSHHHHH!

	Kitten: Woah!

	.................To be Continued.


Whereís My Mommy? A Kittenís Journey - Part 19

	I was pushed again and went flying through
	the air.

	Aaaaaaaaahhh!

	That hurt, but this time I flew
	much MUCH farther than last time!
	This must be a new record!

	BAM!

	I finally stopped when I landed
	in some bushes.

	I must have flown about 10 yards!

	But I donít have time to think
	about that now! My fake Mommy
	sure is strong!

	Iím going to have to give up on fighting
	her. The cause of truth and justice is
	going to have to find another hero!

	.................

	Hey, I think Iíve seen this place
	before...

	There are flowers, and that weird
	bug, and a butterfly...

	Could this be my house?

	They must have been talking
	about the OTHER house next
	door!

	There! Could it be?

	Mommy?

	.................To be Continued.


Whereís My Mommy? A Kittenís Journey - Final Part

	I finally found Mommy!
	Itís the reunion that I have been
	dreaming about all this time!

	Kitten: Mommy!

	Mommy: Minerva...

	POWWWW!

	Kitten: Ouch!

	Mommy: Where have you been?

	Mommy: I told you I had to go to the
	hospital for 2 or 3 days and that
	you were to stay at home!

	Kitten: O-oh yeah... I forgot...

	Mommy: I was so worried about you!
	But Iím glad youíre safe.

	Kitten: Iím sorry, Mommy.
	I didnít mean to worry you...

	Mommy: Minerva...

	Kitten: Mommy....

	And so Mommy gave me lots and
	lots of nice hugs.

	And I was really really happy.

	Iím going to try hard not to forget
	what Mommy tells me from now on.

***********************

Final Z Rangers - Part 1

	Our story begins in a certain city on a
	certain planet...

	Pink: Ugh...Iím sooooo bored!
	I wish something big would happen.
	Like a major catastrophe...

	Green: Iíll have to admit that thereís
	been a marked reduction in alien
	invasions in the last 10 months.

	Red: Well whatís wrong with that?
	Donít we want things to be
	peaceful?

	Red: By the way, boss. When are we going
	to get replacements for Blue and
	Yellow?

	Boss: About that...
	Budget buts prevent us from
	hiring replacements.

	Red: What? But weíll look
	terrible with just red, green and pink!

	Boss: True...
	I suppose you could change your
	colors to red, blue and yellow...

	Pink: No way! Iíve been Pink for
	way too long to change now. Even
	my underwear is pink!

	Boss: I see. Um, in any case,
	youíre just going to have to deal with
	the current situation as best you can.

	Pink: Roger!

	Beep beep beep beep!

	Green: Itís the Z Alarm!

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 2

	The Z Alarm rang out across the meeting
	room of the Final Z Rangers [Eastern Chapter]!

	Boss: It looks as though something
	resembling an alien has appeared in
	sector R386.

	Boss: Positions, everyone!

	Red & Green & Pink: Roger!

	Boss: Wait a minute! I forgot to mention
	it, but Red and Pinkís machines are
	in the shop at the moment...

	Boss: So youíll all have to take Greenís
	machine.

	Red & Green & Pink: Yes sir!

	Pink: Hmm...I didnít know that Redís
	and my machines were in the shop.

	Green: Well...I think thatís just an
	excuse.

	Green: The boss probably just wants to
	save on gas.

	Pink: What? Are we that bad off?

	Green: It looks like it. Even that old
	cleaning lady who we used to have
	tea with has been laid off.

	Pink: How horrible!

	Red: Donít worry about it! If we do our
	best, weíre sure to have our budget
	increased!

	Pink: S-sure! Youíre right.

	Green: Here we are. Sector
	R386.

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 3

	The Final Z Rangers rushed to the
	location of the alien sighting.

	Green: It looks as though the residents
	of the area have already been evacuates.
	Is that the alien I see over there?

	Pink: It looks like a small child.
	And itís so dirty, the poor thing.

	Red: How do you suppose it got here? I
	didnít see its parents anywhere.
	Maybe we should take it with us!

	Green: All right, letís go.

	Green: Are you oaky?
	Where are your mommy and daddy?

	Alien: ....................

	Red: No response. Hey whatís
	that odd bracelet its wearing?
	Maybe itís a clue of some kind...

	Pink: Eeeeek!

	Green: Whatís wrong?

	Pink: That child -- I felt it touch my
	hair!

	Red: Oh come on. Youíre way too far
	away for it to have touched you.

	Pink: Was it just my imagination ?
	Hmm....

	Green: Anyway, letís bring it back to
	headquarters.

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 4

	The Final Z Rangers brought the
	childlike alien back to their
	headquarters...

	Boss: Hmm...Weíve scanned the life
	form, but so far there are no
	hits in our database.

	Boss: That bracelet itís wearing is also
	a mystery. It looks like itíll take some
	more time before we know anything.

	Boss: By the way, whereís Pink?

	Green: Oh, sheís in the shower room
	washing off that alien.

	Boss: Ah...

	Splish splash....

	Pink: Come on, stand still!
	Iím going to make you all nice and
	clean.

	Alien:...........

	Pink: I wonder how you got so dirty...
	You poor dear...

	Pink: Thatís odd. When I was looking in
	your eyes just now, I felt all funny...
	Like I was in a daze or something...

	Alien: Heheheh....

	Pink: Gasp!
	Wait...Are you...
	An evil alien?

	Beep beep beep beep!

	Boss: What?
	Thatís Pinkís emergency signal!

	.................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 5

	The other Final Z Rangers heard
	Pinkís emergency signal. What could
	have happened to her?

	Boss: Red! Green! Head for the shower
	room immediately!

	Red: The shower room? Are you sure
	itís OK for us to just go barging in
	there?

	Green: Of course itís oaky!
	I mean, uh, this is an emergency!

	Green: Cough.

	Boss: Well, go on!

	Red & Green: Roger!

	Green: Pink! Are you okay?

	Red: Wow, even her swimming suit is pink!
	It doesnít look bad though...

	Green: Hmph...Iíd look better in that
	suit!

	Red: Oh?

	Green: In a totally masculine way
	of course...ahem...

	Red: Right...
	Anyway, moving right along...

	Green: Hey you! Alien!
	Get away from Pink!

	.................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 6

	Pink: Ugh...Ugh...

	Green: Pink! Can you hear me?

	Pink: Oh hello, Green!
	I just love this alien! Love-love-love-
	love-love it! Kiss-kiss!

	Red: What the? So you and the alien
	have been working together all this
	time, eh? Traitor!

	Green: Uh, I think youíre missing the
	point. The alien has somehow taken
	control of Pinkís brain!

	Alien: Heheheh...
	My Gaga Eye Beam claimed
	its first victim.

	Alien: Soon, all of the women of your
	planet will be in love with me and
	will never look at another human male.

	Alien: Which will mean that your species
	will eventually come to an end!
	Not a bad plan, eh?

	Red: It does seem like it would take
	quite a while for it to work, though...

	Green: In any case, we canít allow you
	to control Pinkís mind this way!
	Take this!

	Alien: Aggghhh!

	Pink: Stop!
	What are you doing to my beloved
	alien? Taste the fury of my Pink Kick!

	Green & Alien: Oof! Ugh!

	Red: Uh, Pink...You just kicked your
	ďbeloved alienĒ in the face,
	you know...

	.................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 7

	Green and the alien lay on the floor,
	stunned by Pinkís powerful kick...

	Smash!

	Alien: NO!
	My bracelet is broken!
	Agghghhh!

	Red: The alien...
	Itís changing shape?

	*: Thanks to you, I am now free.
	You have my gratitude.

	Red: Who are you?

	*: I am Prince Jees of the Gorgeous
	Nebula.

	Jees: I was captured and forced to wear
	that bracelet, which made me change
	into the form you saw before.

	Pink: Wha? Where am I?
	Whatís happening?

	Green: Ah, youíre back to normal, Pink.
	Thatís a relief.

	Jees: Pink, you were kind to me, even
	when I was in that other form. Please
	do me t he honor of becoming my princess!

	Pink: Wha?
	Iím totally lost here...

	Pink: Did he just propse to me? Does
	that mean Iíd have to leave my job
	and move to another planet?

	Pink: Oh dear! What should I do?
	By the way, who is this guy, anyway?

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers Ė Part 8

	Pink: So that bracelet changed
	Jees into the alien child we saw before?

	Pink: Oh...My...Gosh!

	Red: Whatís the problem?

	Pink: You mean you are not a child?

	Red: Big deal! Alien child...alien man.

	Pink: Thatís not the point!
	Hey, what are you guys doing
	in my shower room, anyway?

	Green: But we got your emergency signal
	and--

	Pink: A likely story!

	Jees: Please! Everyone!
	Do not fight. This was all my fault.

	Jees: If it wasnít for me, none of this
	would have happened! Please forgive
	a foolish old alien!

	Jees: Pink, there is no need for you to
	respond to my proposal. Please accept
	my apology! Farewell!

	Pink: Wait!

	Red: Heís gone.

	Green: And we still donít know anything
	about what was going on!

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 9

	Boss: We contacted the Gorgeous Nebula,
	and according to them, princes #9,
	#13, #24, #27, #36, #42...

	Boss: #62, #72 and #134 have all
	been reported missing recently.

	Red: Whoa! How many princes do they
	have, anyway?

	Boss: There is no public record of that,
	but the Gorgeousians have very long
	lifespans and many children.

	Green: So what do those missing princes
	have to do with what happened here?

	Boss: Weíre still working on that but
	the Gorgeous Nebula is very rich
	and big in the known universe.

	Boss: By nature, its inhabitants
	know nothing of dishonestly or criminal
	behavior.

	Boss: Thereís probably no easier target
	for kidnapping.

	Boss: The Gorgeous Nebula has
	given us a rather generous grant to
	help in our investigation.

	Boss: And weíve been able to use some
	of that money to hire a new member.

	Boss: Allow me to introduce Blue.
	He has a power that we desperately
	need right now.

	Red: Ooh! We finally get a replacement
	for Blue!

	Pink: Oh! Heís so handsome!

	Green: Hmph!

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 10

	And so a new member arrived at the
	Final Z Ranger [Eastern Chapter].
	But what could his secret power be?

	Blue: Hello everyone. I took the liberty
	of looking around the facility a bit on
	my way here...

	Blue: I found that 36% of your rooms are
	currently unused. Just rearranging some
	things would save 37.6% in expenditures.

	Blue: And changing your weapons from
	nuclear batteries to more traditional
	rechargeable ones would save 34% of...

	Boss: Uh, yes. Weíll continue this talk
	later on in private, Blue.

	Pink: Ugh... Too many numbers...
	My head hurts... Is this the power that
	we needed so badly?

	Green: Boss...

	Boss: All right. I canít hide it
	any longer. As you may know, our
	chapter is in danger of closing.

	Boss: Technically we would be absorbed
	by another chapter, but your jobs could
	be in danger if that were to happen.

	Boss: And so, Iím trying to come up with
	a way to keep this chapter going, no
	matter what it takes...

	Red: Well, it is true that our chapter
	is one of the smallest around.

	Green: And we live in a particularly
	peaceful area without any major problems
	for superheroes like us to deal with.

	Pink: Yes... I sometimes felt a little
	guilty getting paid for this...

	Boss: Now now. Donít get discouraged,
	everyone. Iím sure that this incident
	will help put us back on the map!

	Pink: I hope so, Boss...

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 11

	Beep beep beep beep!

	Just as the Final Z Rangers vowed
	to help rebuild their chapter, the sound
	of the emergency buzzer beeped!

	Boss: More aliens have been sighted!
	Theyíre the same childlike aliens
	as before. About 10 of them.

	Boss: Theyíre in sector R386 again.
	Get moving, people!

	Red: 10 of those things in the same
	place as before? What do those aliens
	have against out city?

	Pink: This is out chance to prove
	ourselves!

	Boss: Iíve heard that the other chapters
	may be sending help as well. Now go and
	show them what youíre made of!

	Red & Green & Pink & Blue: Roger!

	Blue: Greenís machine is 11.27% more
	fuel efficient than the others, so letís
	take that.

	Blue: Iíve also plotted a course that
	will allow us to get to the scene using
	the least amount of gas possible.

	Red: But weíve got that new grant coming
	in! Shouldnít we just go whatever way
	is the fastest?

	Blue: I understand what youíre saying,
	but I was hired to--

	Green: We donít have time to argue
	about it. Come on! Letís go!

	Pink: Ooh, Green. You were so forceful
	just then... I kind of liked it.

	Green: Cough...

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 12

	Red: Shucks! Weíre late!
	Itís all Blue fault!
	He just wonít shut up!

	Blue: Hmph!
	We wouldíve arrived faster if you
	hasnít kept arguing with me!

	Green: This is our jurisdiction, and
	weíre the last ones here. That doesnít
	look very good. Letís fix this.

	Green: Letís see...Whatís going on
	here?

	Pink: Look! The people from the other
	chapters are all going gaga, just like
	Pink did!

	Green: Yes...
	The women and the men, too...
	This is terrible.

	Blue: But I thought the Gaga Eye Beam
	was only supposed to work on women!
	Did they power it up somehow?

	Red: Heheheh.
	This is our chance!

	Red: Now we can swoop in and save the
	day!

	Green: But we donít even have a plan!
	How are we supposed to fight them?

	Red: Well, at least we canít do any
	worse than the guys from the other
	chapters!

	Green: That makes me feel a lot
	better!

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 13

	Pink: Letís review...The aliens are
	innocent bystanders being controlled
	somehow, so we canít attack them...

	Red: And they have Gaga Eye Beams
	coming out of their eyes, so we canít
	look at them...

	Green: Then our only chance is to try
	and destroy the bracelets controlling
	them from a distance.

	Green: Weíll use the Super MagnetoRifle!

	Blue: No! The Super MagnetoRifle is an
	incredibly inefficient weapon!
	The cost per shot is astronomical!

	Blue: You know how many lunches we
	could buy for the cost of a single shot of
	that weapon?

	Red: Do you measure everything in
	lunches?

	Blue: Iím just trying to help this
	chapter survive! The boss told me
	specifically what my duties were!

	Green: Yes, but we need something that
	will definitely work, and the Super
	MagnetoRifle has auto-aiming!

	Blue: No. Iíve been training for months
	to get better results from cheap weapons
	than expensive ones.

	Blue: This is finally my chance to prove
	myself!

	Blue: Witness my special Blue Bamboo
	Spear!

	Blue: Hey, itís not here!
	Uh-oh, I left it back at the base!

	Red: Moron.

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 14

	Blue: ......................

	Green: Hey, Blue. I know youíre
	depressed about forgetting your spear
	and all, but donít let it get you down.

	Red: Yeah, donít be so blue, Blue.
	Heehee...

	Pink: This is no time for jokes!
	The aliens are getting away!

	Green: All right. Itís time for everyone
	to transform! Then weíll go after those
	aliens!

	Red & Pink: Roger!

	Red & Green & Pink: Final Z powers
	activate! Form of....Super Final Z!!

	The Final Z Rangers turned into their
	super forms, amplifying their 5 senses
	and increasing their strength and speed!

	Super Pink: Blue? Arenít you going to
	transform?

	Blue: Sorry, I only have the bare
	minimum equipment. I canít transform.

	Blue: Besides, do you know how much
	energy it takes to transform?! We could
	eat for weeks for that amount of money!

	Blue: But donít bother listening to
	me...Iím useless...

	Super Pink: ..........

       .................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 15

	Super Pink: What are we going to do? We
	have to go after the aliens, but we
	canít just leave Blue behind, can we?

	Super Red: Why not? Letís just go!
	Then we can use all the expensive
	weapons we want! Hahaha!

	Super Pink: Youíve changed, Red...

	Super Green: Heís been under a lot of
	stress lately...

	Super Red: Come on! Letís break out the
	Super MangetoRifles and the
	MegaloBazookas!

	Blue: W-wait a minute! I forgot that I
	still have one more power left...

	Super Red: If you almost forgot about
	it, it canít be very good...

	Blue: No, I have a plan. Iíll close my
	eyes and use my special ESP powers to
	fight the aliens.

	Blue: Iíve been training for years for
	this moment! Now stand back while I show
	you my true power! Ha!

	Super Green: H-hey, thatís not!

	Blue: Aaaagggghhhh!

	Super Green: Gasp!

	Super Pink: Wow, he just ran out into
	the road and got hit by a car...

	Super Green: And he was running in the
	exact opposite direction from the
	aliens, too...

	Super Red: Well, he was certainly a big
	help. Whoís idea was it to hire him,
	anyway?

	.................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 16

	Boss [Over radio]: I see...
	So Blue was no help...

	Boss [Over radio]: Iím afraid we have no
	choice but to continue our pursuit
	of the aliens.

	Super Green: Roger.

	Super Pink: Well, thatís the 987th Blue
	weíve gone through so far...

	Super Red: Yeah...And I really thought
	this one would last, too...

	Super Green: I think itís the uniform.
	It must be cursed.
	Iíll get it drycleaned later.

	Super Green: Come on, we have to catch
	those aliens! We canít let them
	escape into the town!

	Super Red: Still, part of me thinks that
	if the townspeople were affected by the
	alien beams, they might be happier.

	Super Pink: Yes, me too!

	Super Green: But we have to remember
	that the aliens themselves are being
	controlled by those bracelets.

	Super Pink: Hmm...I suppose youíre
	right. And if we donít do something,
	our chapter is going to go bankrupt...

	Super Red: Well, letís get going then!

	Super Green & Super Pink: All right!

	.................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 17

	Super Red: All right, hand me that
	MegnetoRifle and...Hey!
	Wait a minute! Theyíre hiding
	their bracelets! I canít see them!

	Super Green: We have no choice but
	to try close combat. Itís dangerous,
	but I canít see any alternative...

	Super Red: Listen up, everyone!
	Just make sure that you stay away
	from the Gaga Eye Beams!

	Super Red: If you look at them,
	theyíll -- Ugh! Gagagagaaaa.

	Super Green: Wow, that was quick!
	They already got Red!

	Super Pink: Itís just you and me, Green.

	Super Green: Itís all right. I feel I
	can finally tell you this, Pink... I....
	Love you! Iím absolutely gaga over you!

	Super Green: So thereís no way that any
	alien eye beam is going to change the
	way I feel!

	Super Pink: Green!

	Super Green: Letís go!

	Super Green: It you look at them,
	theyíll--ugh! Gagagagaaaa.

	Super Pink: G-green...

	Super Pink: This isnít funny...
	Sob...

	.................To be Continued.


Final Z Rangers - Part 18

	Super Red & Super Green: Heeheehee!
	I just love these aliens!
	Gagagagaga!

	Super Pink: Sigh... Iím the only one
	left whoís still got her wits about
	her...

	Super Pink: All right. Iíll show them
	what this gal is capable of!

	Alien: Heheheh....

	Super Pink: Here they come!
	I have to avoid looking them in
	the eyes!
