  > 1.2 How to Get Characters to Arrive in Town
----------------------------------------------------------------------
     Certain characters will already be in the Village when you start
your file.  However, there are a select few who must be persuaded into
moving in!

> Carl – In order to obtain Carl, all you have to do is visit the horse
race during Spring.  As soon as the Moonlight Café is built, he will be
a waiter behind the counter.

> Dan – Dan will appear on the weekends if there is good weather, after
you attend the Spring horse race, so be sure to look out for him.  As
soon as Ronald constructs the Paradise Orchard, Dan will begin to work
there. (See Ronald for information on the Paradise Orchard.)

> Dia – Dia will only arrive once the Sanatorium has been built.  In
order to get the Sanatorium in your Village, you must befriend Martha
with one heart and ship at least 30 herbs.

> Doug – You will have the opportunity to meet Doug if you attend the
Spring horse race on the 17th.  He will then open the Perch Inn at the
beginning of Summer, and show up during the weekend if there is good
weather, until it is built.

> Duke – You will have the opportunity to meet Duke if you attend the
Spring horse race on the 17th.  He will open the Moonlight Café at the
beginning of Summer, and show up during the weekend if there is good
weather, until it is built.

> Eve – You will meet Eve upon entering the Moonlight Café for the first
time. (See Duke for information on the Moonlight Café.)

> Gina – Gina will only arrive once the Sanatorium has been built.  In
order to get the Sanatorium in your Village, you must befriend Martha
with one heart and ship at least 30 herbs.

> Katie – Katie will apply to become a waitress at the Café Callaway
and you will meet her as soon as you enter for the first time.  In order
to get the Café Callaway in your Village, you must first befriend Carl
with one heart or more.

> Lyla – You must first attend the Flower Festival, which takes place
on the 23rd of Spring.  After you meet her, she will wander around the
Village on the weekends so long as the weather is clear.  After
befriending her with one heart, and shipping 20 or more flowers, and
at least two of each berry, Lyla will construct a wonderful gift shop
which sells: jams, yarn, flowers, and other great gifts.

> Martha – To obtain Martha, you should first have at one to two hearts
with Alex.  She will show up at the Clinic afterward.

> Saibara – Saibara will only open up his clay shop as soon as you ship
one Good Clay, which can be found by using the hoe in the second level
of the Mines.

> Ronald – Ronald will appear at the Spring horse races, which takes
place on the 17th.  Afterwards, he will show up every weekend if the
weather is clear, until his orchard is built.  To get Ronald to build his 
orchard, you must first buy a fruit sapling (orange preferably), and plant it
in the yard.  REMEMBER: Trees MUST be planted in the middle of a 3x3 area
with NOTHING surrounded by it in order to grow and produce fruit.  Orange
trees are planted in the Spring Season, and produce fruit in the Summer.
Once you plant the sapling, Ronald will arrive at your door, telling you
he wishes to build an orchard.  Now all you have to do is ship one of any
type of fruit, and Ronald will send you a letter, telling you that Paradise
Orchards has been opened!

> Tai – Tai is the blacksmith, and will only arrive in town as soon as
you ship one of every type of ore:  Junk Ore, Copper Ore, Silver Ore,
Gold Ore, and Rare Ore.  These can be found on multiple levels of the
mine, which you can obtain by standing on the cracks and falling through
to lower levels.

> Tim – You will meet Tim as soon as you enter the blacksmith shop.

Musical Notes for bringing their heart levels to mid-two hearts (meaning almost

  > 2.1 Rivalries
----------------------------------------------------------------------
     Of course, there will be others who have their eyes set on the man
or woman who you do.  There are other suitors in the village who will want
to marry certain members of the opposite gender as well.

Here are the following rivals (vice versa for the men):
If you want to marry Ann, your rival is Blue.
If you want to marry Dia, your rival is Kurt.
If you want to marry Ellen, your rival is Carl.
If you want to marry Eve, your rival is Dan.
If you want to marry Gina, your rival is Alex.
If you want to marry Gwen, your rival is Bob.
If you want to marry Katie, your rival is Joe.
If you want to marry Lyla, your rival is Louis.
If you want to marry Maria, your rival is Ray.
If you want to marry Nina, your rival is Basil.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
  > 2.2 Marriage
----------------------------------------------------------------------
     In order to get married, you MUST have a partner at 8-10 hearts, a
level 3 house upgrade, and the Large (Plain) bed in your house.  This
will activate a cut scene the next day (if the weather is clear), where
Theodore comes to your door and tells you of the blue bird which rests at
the top of the mountain.  Be sure to have a hammer in your rucksack if you
haven’t already cleared the cave at the very top of Mt. Moon, and some food
to restore your stamina for afterward!  Theodore will bring you to the entrance,
and if you enter, be prepared to climb the mountain!  You climb by pressing the
A button, and you must dodge falling boulders.  It’s not too difficult, and
once you get to the top of the hill, you will receive your Blue Feather
to propose to your lover.

     Once your lover accepts your proposal, you will be wed, and start
preparing for a baby, because it’ll soon be on the way! ;)

----------------------------------------------------------------------
  > 2.3 Benefits of Befriending
----------------------------------------------------------------------
     There are many benefits of befriending other Villagers, as well.
They will be sure to give you opportunities for new items, or other things.

Martha – Once you befriend Martha with about two and a half hearts
(and the upgraded Rucksack with 10 slots from the Junk Shop), you will
gain a cut scene where she explains that if you give her yarn, she will
make your rucksack even larger!  Bring her some yarn either from your own
sheep’s wool, or buy some yarn from Lyla at the gift shop, and Martha will
enlarge your rucksack to its maximum capacity of 15 slots!

Ronald – If you befriend Ronald, his young niece will come stay with him.

Saibara – Why doesn’t Saibara sell anything at his shop?  Well, befriend him
and he will sell multiple clay products.

Woody – Befriend Woody with one heart and he will allow you to have the
level 3 house upgrade.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
  > 3.0 Festival Significance
----------------------------------------------------------------------
     Some festivals stand as wonderful opportunities to spend alone time
with your loved one. The Bamboo Festival, on the 7th of Summer, is the first
of these activities.  Your love interest will come to your door and ask if
you would like to float a bamboo boat down the river with them.  Presuming
you say yes, you will not only get a small scene with them, but this will
raise their heart level a little.  The Fireworks Festival on the 24th of
Summer, also assists in wooing your match.

Other significant festivals are:
Moon Viewing Festival – 9th of Fall
Your love interest will come visit you on the morning of the festival,
and invite you to join her (or him) in moon gazing that evening.

Thanksgiving Festival – 12th of Winter
You may travel around town and talk give out cakes to people.
Those who have three hearts will give you a cakes as well.

Campfire Festival – 19th of Winter
Put a piece of wood into the blue bin in the Village Square the day
before the festival, and go to the beach when ready.  You will be
around a campfire with Theodore and your loved one, Theodore will run
off and you will get some time along to talk.

Starlight Night Festival – 24th of Winter
Your love interest will come visit you on the morning of the festival,
and invite you to join her (or him)in star gazing that evening.  You’ll
get a bit of alone time with your loved one, and if you’re lucky, a kiss!
