Rune Factory is a spinoff series of the cult series Harvest Moon, a series 
that allows players to run and care for their own farm with none of that
abnnoying sweat. The Rune Factory series, thus far, features two games for 
the Nintendo DS and one game for the Nintendo Wii. This guide will cover the 
version on the Wii entitled Rune Factory Frontier.

Rune Factory Frontier (RFF) is a game the features the farming simulation 
aspects that many people enjoy from traditional Harvest Moon games alongside
a dungeon crawling, hack-and-slash environment not that dissimilar from the
more recent additions in the Legend of Zelda series.

The Rune Factory universe is one filled with a rich history, but one that is
not readily apparent. All three games in the Rune Factory series thus far
reveal the background inherent to the games in very subtle ways, mostly 
through conversations held with other characters as you get to know them 
better.

This game, like the other two for the DS, starts off with you controlling a
man who is wandering into an unfamiliar town with no memory of his past. This
tiem around you happen to be the same character that you controlled in the 
first Rune Factory, only you get to head to a new town with a whole new set 
of problems. The first game is not mentioned or referenced at all in Rune
Factory Frontier, except for some very vague inferences made by a couple of
the characters at certain points. Several of the bachelorettes are returned 
from the first game, the most relevant of which is Mist, the main heroine of 
the story who is the reason you head to the town in RFF in the first place.

The game starts like any other Harvest Moon and Rune Factory game. You start
off as a character in a town that you have never seen before and manage to
luck you way into an uninhabited farm that they were just happening to need
someone to tend to. Unlike traditional Harvest Moon games, however, Rune
Factory Frontier features four dungeons for you to explore and conquer in 
your efforts to right the problems that plague the town fo Trampoli. With 
that in mind, let's get into the world of Rune Factort Frontier!

                          ----------------------

                         \                      /
                          ----------------------

The game opens with Raguna (your character) wandering into an unfamiliar town
murmering to himself about needing to find Mist, who wandered off after the 
events of the first Rune Factory game, which also featured Raguna as the main
character. Raguna is on the brink of collapse and manages to find his way 
into a church run by a friendly old lady named Stella. Stella allows Raguna
to stay at the Church for the night so that he may continue his quest to find
Mist the following morning. The trick is on Raguna, however, as Mist walks 
right into the Church in the morning while Raguna is still talking with 
Stella.

Mist, who acts as if there is absolutely nothing wrong, tells Raguna that he
will be taking over an uninhabited farm next to her house and takes him there
to show him around. After a quick tour of Raguna's new farm Mist gives you a 
watering can, a hoe, and a bag of Turnips to get started. Just like that, 
Raguna is now on his own in a new town once again.

                         | The Town of Trampoli |               [TWN]
                         |______________________|

The Town of Trampoli is divided into 9 Districts: Homestead, Road to Beach,
Trampoli Beach, South District, Church District, Business District, Public
Square, Mountain Path, and Lake Trampoli. Opening your map of the town will
also show a set of Cliffs and the Ocean off to the east, neither of which can
be accessed during the course of the game.

Here is a poorly drawn text map of the town:

|____________________________________________________________________________|

And now, to go through the town, one district at a time:

==========
Homestead:
==========

The Homestead is, you guessed it, where Raguna lives and works to maintain 
his farm. The only things in this area are Raguna's house, farm, woodshed,
shipping box, well, and a river running through it. Later on Raguna's barn
will be built on the hill in the northeast corner of the Homestead. Heading
East will take you to the Road to the Beach, West leads to the South District,
North to the Church District, and Northwest to the Business District.

==================
Road to the Beach:
==================

The Road to the Beach is where you will find Mist's house, a small pond where
you can fish, and the entrance to the Green Ruins, the first of the four
dungeons that surround the town of Trampoli. North of the Road to the Beach 
is the Church District, West is the Homestead, and East lies the Beach itself

===============
Trampoli Beach:
===============

Trampoli Beach is the hip place to be during the Summer season, where you can
frequently find the town's bachelorettes sporting their swimsuits for your
viewing pleasure. There is a changing shack on the beach where Raguna can
change into his swim trunks for the Summer season as well, along with a dock
for fishing. Other than the dock and the changing shack, there's not much to
see at the Beach, West takes you back to the Road to the Beach.

===============
Churh District:
===============

The Church District is where you will find the town Church, where Stella is 
the presiding sister and town founder. The Churhc will also be where you buy
medicines and certain laboratory ingredients once Lara moves into town.
West of the Church itself is the Clock Tower, which is currently not in 
working order. The Clock Tower will be inhabited by Kanno, an old researcher
by the 7th of your first Spring in Trampoli, along with his two granddaughters
Cinnamon and Candy several days later. North of the Clock Tower and Church is
the Rune Archives, the town's library. You will be able to buy recipe books 
here from Selphy after she arrives in the town. Just east of the Rune Archives
is the entrance to the Snow Ruins, the last dungeon that will be accessible 
as you progress through the game. To the East of the Church is a big tree, 
which is labelled as such on the in game map. Heading directly south from the
big tree will take you to the Road to the Beach, heading south from the 
Church and Clocktower will take you to the Homestead, and heading west from 
the Church will take you into Trampoli's Business District.

==================
Business District:
==================

Trampoli's Business District is where you will do the majority of your 
shopping throughout the game. Located here is the Sunshine Inn and Snowstyle
Tavern, run by Turner and Rita, along with their daughter Eunice. North of 
the Inn is the Damascus Forge, run by Ganesha, the town's half-elf resident.
Ganesha's son Marco also lives there. East of the Forge is Danny's Grocery,
run by Danny himself, although the selection will be abyssmal. Just to the 
left of Danny's Grocery will be the Materia Store, which will be opened by
Rosetta halfway through the first Spring, and will also featurea greater 
selection thatn Danny's Grocery. East of the two warring Groceries will be
the Laga Bathhouse, which will open once you begin to explore Whale Island a
bit and find Melody, the girl who runs the Bathhouse, searching he Island. 
East of the Business District is the Church District, North leads to the
Public Square, South leads to the South District, and Southeast leads back to
the Homestead.

==============
Public Square:
==============

The Public Square is actually a large, round platform built in front of a
waterfall, with colloseum style seats surrounding it. In the center of the
Square is a singing rock, and Lute, Trampoli's resident artist, will be found
in the Square on Holidays peddling his wares. The only way out of the Public
Square is to go South back to the Business District.

===============
South District:
===============

The South District will be the location of two other farms at the start of 
your game. The northernmost one is Kross's farm. Kross is a depressing man
who garners extra work as the town's carpenter, who will build additions onto
your house and barn in the blink of an eye. South of Kross's farm is Erik's 
farm, where you can buy crop seeds and certain other seasonal goods from Erik
while he is open for business. Erik will also give you farming tutorials if
you ask him. The South District will also be home to the Coquille chateau 
beginning on the first day of Summer, where Bianca will live with her maid,
Tabatha, for the Summer only, unless certain requirements are met. The South
District will also be home to Brodik, who will move in during the first
Summer as well, but seems to know Raguna from his past and causes all sorts 
of mischief on Raguna's farm. East of the South District is the Homestead,
north takes you to the Business District, and west leads to the Mountain Path.
There is a gate to the southwest that never opens as well.

==============
Mountain Path:
==============

The Mountain Path is a beautifully forested path along the side of the 
mountain to the west of Trampoli. Halfway up the path there is seen a sapling
growing under a fallen slab of rock. As this sapling grows it will open up
the entrance to the Lava Ruins, the game's second dungeon. North along the 
path is the Observatory, a level clearing which can be used to view 
constellations depending on the time of day and season, and whether or not
Cinnamon has told Raguna about them yet. East of the Observatory is a couple
of Cornucopia trees which will drop fruit if you smack them with your hammer.
The Southeast exit from the Mountain Path will take you to the South District,
and the northeast exit will take you to Lake Trampoli.

==============
Lake Trampoli:
==============

Lake Trampoli is where you will find a dock with a small rowboat nearby. You
can take the rowboat to visit the small shore to the northeast, as well as 
the two small islands in the center of the lake. The northeast shore contains
six more Cornucopia trees, which will drop fruit if you hit them with your
hammer. The eastern island sports a large tree which is in bloom during the
Spring and is very pretty and scenic, and the western island is seemingly
empty at first, but will actually become the only method of reaching Whale
Island on holidays, when it apparently is not seen in the skies above 
Trampoli. Heading southwest from Lake Trampoli will take you to the Mountain
Path and back towards town.

                             | Your House |                     [HOS]
                             |____________|

Raguna's house, located in the Homestead, is where you will start every day of
your journey. Initially the house comes with only the standard bed, fireplace,
table, and storage bin. The storage bin can be used to store all of the non-
parishable items that you find (anything that's not food). The table is where
you can review the letters that Raguna has received in the mail. There is 
also empty space in 3 of the 4 corners of the house, with the 4th being
occupied by Raguna's bed. The other three spaces are for the Laboratory, Forge
and Kitchen.

Initially, the Kitchen, Forge, and Laboratory can be bought from Lute when he
is selling his wares in the Square on Holidays. The first set of facilities
you can buy can only be used to combine two ingredients at a time. This is
good for making initial tool upgrades and weapons in the Forge, basic dishes
in the Kitchen, and simple medicines in the Laboratory. You will be able to 
upgrade to larger facilities by expanding your house by having a sufficient
amount of lumber and paying Kross's fee, and you can gain larger utensils by
buying them from Lute in the Square on Holidays.

                        | Meeting the Townsfolk |               [PPL]
                        |_______________________|

As you begin to explore the town, you'll notice that all of the doors to the
other townsfolks homes and businesses are always locked. Head over to the
Church and talk to Stella, who will tell you to go talk to Turner for her. To
find Turner head over to the Sunshine Inn. Upon entering the Inn an anime-
style scene will trigger where Raguna will meet Eunice, one of the 12 
bachelorettes that Raguna has to choose from to marry. After that initial
scene you will formally meet Eunice and her dad Turner. Give Turner the
Bamboo Shoot that Stella asked you to deliver. This triggers a chain of events
that will introduce Raguna to the rest of the villagers remaining in the
Business District, including Ganesha at the Damascus Forge, Danny at Danny's
Grocery, and Erik at his Farm in the South District.

Once you have gone through this train of requests, ending with Erik sending
you to speak with Danny again on his behalf, you can now meet Kross, the
creepy guy who runs his own farm just north of Erik's. That is everyone that
you can meet in the town for now, so you can continue on with your day and do
whatever other chores or exploring you wish to do.

Now for the list. Here is a quick guide to each townsperson and the best ways
to curry their favor. I have excluded the 12 bachelorettes from this section,
since they have their own chapter of the FAQ later on. As is the norm with my
FAQs, the characters will be listed alphabetically, along with the day they
appear, their birthday, which gifts they like, which they don't, and when
you can get an odd scene at the bathhouse (for female characters only).

=======
Brodik:
=======

Brodik is a mysterious figure who appears at the beginning of Fall in your 
first year. He seems to know Raguna from the portion of his life that he can't
remember and apparently holds a grudge against Raguna for that same reason.
Brodik is a bit of a jackass, but is actually a very amusing character if you
don't take him too seriously. He can get annoying when he randomly messes 
with your field and puts rocks in your shipping bin (Rosetta hates it when 
people ship rocks). If you get Kross to 4 FP you can get an event between him
and Brodik where Kross moves a large rock. Brodik will leave town a few weeks
after this event.

Appears: Fall 1
Birthday: Spring 17
Favorite Gift: Apple Pie
Other Gifts: none, Brodik will hate almost anything you give him

======
Candy:
======

Candy is one of Kanno's granddaughters, and will arrive in Trampoli after you
meet Kanno and get him to tell you about his two granddaughters coming to
help him with his research. Even though you meet Candy in an anime style
cutscene, she is not a marriageable bachelorette, although her sister, 
Cinnamon, is. Candy is the key to unlocking the secrets of the Runeys that
you see constantly in the air throughout Trampoli and she will give you the
Harvester that you need to collect Runeys in order to redistribute them in
such a way that creates harmony between them. The Harvester will also be used
to collect produce from monsters that you befriend, eliminating the need for
multiple tools like the Clippers, Milker, and Harvest Basket from previous
Rune Factory installments.

     granddaughters

Danny:
======

Danny is the owner of the town's grocery store. He has never had any 
competition in town so his wares are extremely limited. He sells only Turnip
seeds and some basic equipment for the entirety of his time running his store,
and an examination of his store shows that everything is dusty and out of
place. Once Rosetta opens her store and you befriend Danny a bit, he will
close down his shop and go to work for Rosetta in hers.

Trampoli. On his farm he sells a wide assortment of seeds for all seasons as
well as other goods the vary with the season. He also sells monster feed, as
well as grass seed so that you can grow your own monster feed. If you talk to
Erik after the initial meeting he will give you the Sickle, needed to cut
down crops and weeds on your farm, as well as turning fully grown grass into
feed in your barn. If you go through Erik's first tutorial he will give you
a free bag of Turnip seeds as well.

crystals to aid Raguna in his own Forging efforts. Her shop is in the Business
District, where she lives with her son Marco.

of items for him in exchange for Magic Rods as you progress through the game.

Kross:
======

Kross is a pale, depressed, slightly creepy man who runs a farm just north of
Erik's in the South District. He has a very morbid outlook on life and will
share his thoughts with Raguna on a daily basis. Kross is also Trampoli's
carpenter. He will build any addition onto Raguna's house that you wish, as 
long as you have a sufficient supply of lumber and funds to pay his fees. Any
addition that you ask Kross to build will be constructed immediately, a
testament to his skills at woodworking. Anyone who has played Rune Factory 2
for the DS must wonder is Kross becomes one of the Mayor's miracle 
construction crew that can build almost anything in a day. Kross also gives
Raguna the Monster Glove, necessary for befriending monsters in the wild, as
well as increasing their FP once they are in your barn.

Appears: After the events triggered by speaking with Stella. He will be
     standing out in front of his house.
Birthday: Summer 27

Lute:
=====

Lute is Trampoli's resident artist. He can be found on Thursdays at the Lake
painting and on Holidays at the Public Square where he works as a peddler.
On days where a Festival is taking place in town, Lute will be found peddling
outside the Church, rather than his usual stomping grounds in the Square.
Buying from Lute on Holidays is the only way to get additional furniture for
Raguna's house, as well as the only way to get facilities like the Forge, 
Kitchen, and Laboratory. Lute also sells Kitchen utensils and extra storage
spaces for each of your house's facilities.

of becoming a great warrior and is very smitten with Candy, although he will
never admit it. If you have Marco's FP at 8 or above by his birthday (Winter
29) you can trigger a treasure hunt event with him on that day that will lead
Raguna to four different spots around town: The front of the Bathhouse, the
Ice Hole at the Lake, Raguna's Well, and Mist's flowerbed. Unlike all of the
game's other male characters, Marco actually does have a bathhouse event,
since Ganesha forces him to take his baths with her.

thus far. Stella is the presiding sister at the Church in Trampoli and is also
the founder of the town itself. Everyone in town treats Stella as a mother
figure. She is proficient at eating, drinking, and being generally merry. She

The businesses and shops around Trampoli contain everything that a budding
farmer and adventurer need to survive and thrive in their daily lives. Here
is a compiled list of every shop in the town and what they sell. Hell, just
for kicks, I'll even throw in how much they sell the stuff for!

===========
The Clinic:
===========

The Clinic is attached to Trampoli's Church. While Stella presides over the
Church, the Clinic will not open until a few days into Spring, once Lara
arrives in town after a small chain of events concerning Mist being ill. Once
Lara appears in the town, she will stay at the Church with Stella and run the
Clinic for Trampoli. The Clinic is also where Raguna will wind up if he finds
himself completely out of HP at any point in time. If Raguna does find himself
devoid of HP he will wake up at 10am the following day in the Clinic with Lara
scolding him for working too hard. He will also be at half health and may
quite possibly catch a cold from the ordeal.

Para-Gone: 80G
Energy Drink: 260G
Cold Medicine: 80G
Neutralizer: 80G

=============================
Kross's Miracle Construction:
=============================

Ok, so Kross's carpentry business doesn't really have a name, but I feel that
"Miracle Construction" is fitting, since he does build large extensions onto
Raguna's house in the blink of an eye and with absolutely no help. In
addition to Kross's fee for building expansions onto Raguna's house, he also
requires that Raguna supply a certain amount of lumber for each job. Lumber
can be ontained by chopping branches and stumps with your Axe. Each of the
three crafting areas can be styled in three different ways, all of which will
cost the same amount in both Lumber and cash.

Kitchen Expansion: 10,000G and 120 Lumber
     Styles: Bulging, Ba-Bump, Pointy
Laboratory Expasion: 15,000G and 180 Lumber
     Styles: Apothecary, Alchemy, Magic
Forge Expansion: 20,000G and 240 Lumber
     Styles: Cozy, Cool, Creepy

     Note: Adds second floor to Raguna's house and allows for a larger bed.
Barn: 1,000G and 10 Lumber for initial construction

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

will sell a variety of facilities and furniture to be displayed and used in
Raguna's house. On Holidays he will be found in the Public Square and on
Festival days he will be found outside the Church/Clinic. I have divided all

Materia Store:
==============

The Materia Store is the shop that Rosetta opens right next to Danny's Grocery
in the Business District. Right away Rosetta has a better assortment of
accessories than Danny and offers all of the game's flower seed options for
sale. Raguna will also note how clean and ordered the Materia Store is 
compared to the dusty chaos that is Danny's Grocery. Eventually Danny will
close his store and go to work for Rosetta.

=======================
Rune Archives Bookshop:
=======================

Initially the Rune Archives is just a stone building in the northern Church
District with a bunch of books that Raguna won't read. Once Selphy moves into
town that changes. Selphy appears in town a couple of days after Lara makes 
her entry and decides to stay because Stella offers to let her live in the 
library. Selphy's love of books and reading influences her decision to stay
and she proceeds to completely trash the Rune Archives by the following day.
Selphy quickly digs right into the vast supply of books available at the
Archives and decides to sell the books that she deems unnecessary so that she
might buy new ones. The books that she decides to sell all happen to be books
filled with recipes that Raguna can use in his Forge, Kitchen, and Laboratory.

Sunshine Inn/Snowstyle Tavern:
==============================

The Sunshine Inn and Snowstyle Tavern are run by Turner and Rita, the only two
inhabitants of the town who are actually married when the game begins. While
Turner handles the daily hassles of the Inn itself, Rita tends to the bar at
night. The Inn doesn't actually sell anything, and there's no need for Raguna
to stay there at night since he has his own house not far off. The Tavern
features a number of cooked dishes made by Rita as well as ingredients that
are very rarely found throughout the game's dungeons, but are readily 
accessible here.

The mail system in Trampoli is the main line of communication between one
another in town. Many days Raguna will find a letter or two in his mailbox,
delivered by Anette, one of the town's 12 bachelorettes, around 6:50am. Anette
makes her way around the town early in the morning, beginning in the South 
District and working her way counter-clockwise towards the Business District.

Oftentimes letters from Townsfolk will come with requests for some item or
another in return or response. In the beginning of the game both Mist and Erik
will both send Raguna letters asking for a Turnip in response. To have these
requests fulfilled simply give the requested item to Anette whenever you can
find her during her rounds and she will ensure the it reaches it's destination

Just as in every Harvest Moon and Rune Factory game, Rune Factory Frontier
features a number of festivals unique to the town of Trampoli. Some are simply
fun gatherings of people with some quirky conversations while others feature
some interesting minigames that could result in a nice prize for the winner.
Be sure to speak with all of the bachelorettes during festivals as well, since
festivities are a tried and true way to build LP with the woman of your choice
in a timely manner. If you happen to emerge victorious from one of the mini-
game festivals, definitely make sure to talk to the bachelorettes, since this
is an excellent boost to their affection level.

====================
New Year's Festival:
====================

Date: Spring 1
Notes: This is the festival where the town of Trampoli rings in the New Year
   with Rice Cakes! Give a Rice Cake to townsfolk to boost FP/LP

===============
Beach Festival:
===============

Date: Summer 1
Notes: This is the festival where the young folks of the town bust out their
   swimsuits for the first beach-worthy day of the year. In addition to the
   town's bachelorettes busting out their swimsuits, this is also a chance for
   Raguna to show off his swim trunks, which you can change into using the
   changing shack on the beach. Once you have your trunks on you can begin a
   quick minigame where Raguna will be blindfolded and directed towards a 
   Melon situated on a blanket on the beach. You are holding a hammer and your
   task is to smash the melon with said hammer. Of the four girls on the beach
   for the festival, three will give you directions to the melon, while one 
   will lead you astray. The easy part is, the liar is known to you before the
   game begins, so you can simply ignore the liar's instructions and smash the
   melon when you are told to by a correct girl. There is no prize for this
   festival, but you will get a relationship boost with the four girls who 
   take part in the game with you.

======================
Ganesha Cup Boat Race:
======================

Date: Summer 25
Notes: The Ganesha Cup Boat Race is not, as you might assume, a race. It is
   actually a collection minigame where your task is to collect as many
   colored balloons from around the islands in Lake Trampoli. Heart-shaped
   Balloons are worth the most points and are located at 5 points around the 
   Lake. You are supposed to have a partner to aid you in this event, but the
   partner must be one of the town's bachelorettes and by this point you will
   most likely not have any of them with a high enough FP or LP to aid you.
   This festival is still winnable even without the aid of a partner, simply
   grab all fo the heart balloons you can, making a circuit of half of the
   circled balloons in the lake since they will pop back up after a shot time.
   Your competition for this game is Erik and Danny. While beating Danny will
   be a simple task, Erik does obtain a large amount of points. My first 
   attempt garnered me enough points to beat Danny by over 250 points, yet I
   beat Erik by only 7.

=================
Pumpkin Festival:
=================

Date: Summer 30
Notes: This is the day where everyone in town puts a Pumpkin Mask on in order
   to commemorate a person being saved by a Pumpkin-headed monster. The
   festival was actually started in Trampoli by Turner when he would run 
   around the town wearing his Pumpkin Mask startling the other townsfolk. Now
   the festival is a day where the entire town puts on their Pumpkin Masks and
   takes the day to relax. Be sure to get your Pumpkin Mask from Rosetta's
   Materia Store or make one yourself with your crafting table (part of your
   Forge area). The odd part about this festival is the fact that Mist will
   be the only person in town not wearing a Pumpkin on her head; she wears a 
   Turnip instead. Be sure to talk to everyone in town with your Pumpkin Mask
   on to receive a boost in FP/LP

=================
Harvest Festival:
=================

Date: Fall 13
Notes: The Harvest Festival is a day to celebrate the bounty of the earth. The
   day is meant to allow the inhabitants of town to relish in the feeling of
   a job well done as they complete the (theoretical) last harvest of the
   year. In tradition the farmers around town would give vegetables to the
   townsfolk they felt indebted to, but during the game this festival is 
   nothing more than a day off where you can find everyone to talk to and find
   Lute by the Clinic peddling his wares. Giving people vegetables from your
   farm will result in normal conversations from them, nothing special.

==================
Coming of Age Day:
==================

Date: Fall 25
Notes: The Coming of Age celebration is a day where the people of Trampoli
   host a treasure hunt. If you win, be sure to speak with all of the town's
   inhabitants to get a boost in your FP/LP. The event begins starting at 9am
   in the Public Square. Stella has hidden a Golden Turnip somewhere around
   town. Each area of the town will contain one item that Stella has placed
   there. Mostly there will only be regular Turnips and a few random items 
   like pumpkins or other vegetables. The hiding places are as follows:

   Business District: Path behind the Inn
   Church District: East of the Ruen Archives, near the Snow Ruins entrance
   Beach: South of the entrance
   Road to the Beach: Path north of Mist's house
   Homestead: Behind Raguna's house
   South District: Near Erik's Farm
   Mountain Path: At the Observatory
   Lake Poli: Near the dock

   Once you find the Golden Turnip rush back to the Public Square and give it
   to Stella if you want to win the contest. If you don't care about the
   contest, take the Golden Turnip back to your house and put it in the Seed
   Maker to get Golden Turnip Seeds that you can plant in the Spring, in the
   Green Ruins, or in Whale Island. If you do this, simply give Stella a
   different item that you found to forfeit the hunt and end the event.

=============
Quiz Contest:
=============

Date: Winter 7
Notes: The Quiz Contest is a fun competition that tests your overall knowledge
   of the town and the game itself. Some of the other townspeople's responses
   will be quite amusing, and some of Raguna's responses to the questions can
   be funny as well. Like all festivals, if you win make sure you talk to all
   of the townsfolk to boost your FP/LP with them.

==================
Hotpot Convention:
==================

Date: Winter 19
Notes: The Hotpot Convention is an interesting festival where everyone in the
   town brings one ingredient to be used in one gigantic cooking experiment.
   The results of the Hotpot Convention will be almost directly dependent on
   whatever you decide to throw into the pot. Garlic is one item that has been
   confirmed to make the outcome favorable to almost every townsperson, though
   there will always be a couple that are picky enough to find soemthing to
   complain about. Just grab a Garlic clove from the Snowstyle Tavern any 
   night to bring with you to the Convention and you'll do fine. Again, once
   the festivities are completed, talk with everyone to boost your 
   relationship status.

==================
Year End Festival:
==================

Date: Winter 30
Notes: The Year End fastival is nothing more than a day to reflect on the past
   year and take a day off from the grind of winter work around the farm. Have
   fun today and speak with everyone in town to show them you care.

In addition to all of these festivals the calendar in Raguna's house will show
the birthdays of all of the townsfolk, but only after you give them a gift on
their respective birthdays.

Farming is the heart and soul of any Harvest Moon game, including those in the
Rune Factory series. From your first bag of Turnips to your bustling, booming,
monster employed plantation, farming is the backdrop which makes the entirety
of the game worth playing. We will start this section with a quick guide to
all of the tools you will utilise in your time spent in Trampoli.

                               ____________
                              |            |
                              | Your Tools |                    [TOL]
                              |____________|

If farming is the most basic necessity to any Harvest Moon game, the tools that
the main character utilises become essential to his everyday happenings. In 
this section I will only be covering what each tool is used for (most are 
fairly obvious), and how to get each tool. Every tool in Rune Factory Frontier
can be upgraded 4 times to further increase its usefulness and effectiveness, 
but those upgrades will require the use of Raguna's Forge and a decent amount
of Forge skill. In this section I will cover each upgrade and what it does, but
to learn how to upgrade your tools, head down to the section on Forging. I 
will not list the RP use of each tool here, since the RP use is entirely 
dependant on the skill required to use that tool. I will list the Skill 
required for each tool (Farming Skill for Watering Cans, Sickles, and Hoes, 
Lumber Skill for Axes, Hammer SKill for Hammers, Fishign Skill for Fishing
Rods) and bear in mind that having your skill at or above this skill level 
will maximize your RP usage for that tool.

==============
Watering Cans:
==============

Cheap Water Pot

Atk: ?, Req Skill: 1, Sp Atk: 0
Obtained: Given by Mist
Water Capacity: 12 uses
Notes: The Cheap Water Pot given to Raguna by Mist in the beginning of the game
   is needed, as I'm sure you've guessed by now, to water your crops until they
   are ready for Raguna to harvest. The Cheap Water Pot cannot water more than
   one square of land at a time and does not have a "Special Attack" option.
_________
Tin Can

Atk: 14, Req Skl: 13, Sp Atk: 1
Obtained: Upgraded from Cheap Water Pot
Water Capacity: 15 uses
Notes: The Tin Can is the first upgrade for the Watering Cans and as such can 
   hold, at first glance, only 3 more squares worth of water. The trick is, 
   though, that it actually holds 3 more uses of water. That is a very big 
   change, since the upgrade to Tin Can also allows the use of the "Special
   Attack" option when wating your field (used by holding the B Button and 
   hitting the A Button). The "Special Attack" with the Tin Can allows Raguna
   to water the 3 Squares of land in a line in front of him, effectively making
   the Tin Can able to water 45 squares of land, potentially, rather than the 
   12 of its predecessor.
_________
Lion Can

Atk: 32, Req Skl: 31, Sp Atk: 2
Obtained: Upgraded from Tin Can
Water Capacity: 18 uses
Notes: The Lion Can, like the Tin Can, allows the use of the "Special Attack"
   option. The Lion Can's special, however, waters a 3x3 square of land around
   Raguna (the same area that is used when tossing seeds). This brings the Lion
   Can's effective use up to a potential 162 squares of land.
_________
Rainbow Can

Atk: 72, Req Skl: 59, Sp Atk: 3
Obtained: Upgraded from Lion Can
Water Capacity: 21 uses
Notes: The Rainbow Can, like the Lion Can and the Tin Can before it, brings
   the capacity to use the tool more, as well as widens the area that can be
   watered with it. Raguna can now water a 5x5 area with the "Special Attack"
   option. While this seems fruitless at first, since seeds are planted in a
   3x3 grid, it is actually quite useful as long as you plant your seeds in
   15x15 grids, or rather, plant 25 bags of seeds at once in a perfect square.
   This seems like a lot at first, but with this pattern you will be watering
   all 25 bags worth of crops with 6 uses of your Rainbow Can.
_________
Joy Can

Atk: ???, Req Skl: ???, Sp Atk: 4
Obtained: Upgraded from Rainbow Can
Water Capacity: 24 uses
Notes: the Joy Can is the final representation from the Watering Can line of
   tools. This bad boy can water a 9x9 grid of crops in one launch, making the
   effective number of seed bags per planting at 9, again planted in a perfect
   square. You will be able to water all 9 bags worth of crops with a single
   use of the Joy Can, and you will be able to fit several of these 9x9 squares
   in your field easily for extra farming awesomeness.

=====
Hoes:
=====

Cheap Hoe

Atk: 7, Req Skl: 1, Sp Atk: 0
Obtained: Given by Mist
Notes: The Cheap Hoe is what you need to cultivate the land on your farm. 
   Before Raguna can plant any seeds he must first till the soil with the Hoe.
   Land that has been tilled and is ready for seeds is easily disernable from
   uncultivated squares in your field. Tilled soil will appear darker and will
   show wavy lines throughout it. The Cheap Hoe can only till 1 square of land
   per swing.
_________
Sturdy Hoe

Atk: ?, Req Skl: 13, Sp. Atk: 1
Obtained: Upgrade from Cheap Hoe
Notes: The Iron Hoe is essentially the same as the Tin Can as far as using the
   "Special Attack" feature to till the 3 squares of land directly in front of
   Raguna rather than tilling the land one square at a time. 
_________
Seasoned Hoe

Atk: ??, Req Skl: ??, Sp Atk: 2
Obtained: Upgrade from Iron Hoe
Notes: The Sturdy Hoe functions like the Lion Can with the ability to till a
   3x3 area of land in frotn of Raguna rather than tilling one at a time. Use
   the "Special Attack" command to pull this off.
_________
Shiny Hoe

Atk: ??, Req Skl: ??, Sp Atk: 3
Obtained: Upgrade from Sturdy Hoe
Notes: The Shining Hoe works much like the Rainbow Can in that it tills a 5x5
   area of land, rather than the 3x3 area of the Sturdy Hoe. Use this in
   conjunction with the Rainbow Can to better plan out your farm.
_________
Blessed Hoe

Atk: ??, Req Skl: ??, Sp Atk: 4
Obtained: Upgrade from Shining Hoe
Notes: The Blessed Hoe is the ultimate in land cultivation. It can till an
   unprecedented 9x9 area of your farm all in a single "Special Attack."

========
Hammers:
========

Cheap Hammer

Atk: ?, Req Skl: 1, Sp Atk: 0
Obtained: Given by Melody when you reach Whale Island - Cave Depths for the
   first time
Notes: The Cheap Hammer is what Raguna needs to mine in the dungeons and also
   to break up the small rock clusters that appear on farmable land. To break
   the larger rocks and boulders, however, you will have to upgrade the Hammer
   to Iron and Silver level at the least. The Hammer can also be used to 
   undo any cultivation that Raguna may have done with his Hoe, so if you find
   a reason for un-tilling your land, just smack it with the Hammer to 
   complete your objective.
_________
Iron Hammer

Atk: 16, Req Skl: 10, Sp Atk: 1
Obtained: Upgrade from Cheap Hammer
Notes: The Iron Hammer can be used to break the small gray rocks that may dot 
   Raguna's field and in dungeon fields as well. You will need to upgrade once
   again, however, to be able to break the larger, darker colored boulders 
   that will also dot Raguna's field. You must use the "Special Attack" 
   command in order to break up the small gray rocks in the field, but not to 
   break the small rock clusters in the field or mining rocks in dungeons.
_________
Silver Hammer

Atk: 36, Req Skl: 30, Sp Atk: 2, Added Effect: Stun (28%)
Obtained: Upgrade from Iron Hammer
Notes: With the Silver Hammer in hand Raguna can finally bust up those pesky
   dark gray boulders in hsi field, as well as getting past the tan rocks that
   block your path through the game's dungeons. The "Special Attack" command
   will now allow Raguna to break the gray rocks in 1 swing, the dark gray
   boulders in 3 swings, and the tan rocks in 1 swing.
_________
Golden Hammer

Atk: 80, Req Skl: 50, Sp Atk: 3, Added Effect: Stun (32%)
Obtained: Upgrade from Silver Hammer
Notes: The Golden Hammer is where you will stop seeing differences in what the
   hammers can do, but rather easing the effort required to break things. The
   Golden Hammer can break those annoying dark gray boulders in 2 mighty
   swings now, rather than the 3 "Special Attack"s that it took before.
_________
The Hammer

Atk: 176, Req Skl: 80, Sp Atk: 4, Added Effect: Stun (36%)
Obtained: Upgrade from Golden Hammer
Notes: This is it: The Hammer. This is the Hammer to end all Hammers, there
   can be no better, there can be no equal! This bad boy can bust up those
   damned boulders in 1 "Special Attack."

=====
Axes:
=====

Cheap Axe

Atk: 8, Req Skl: 2, Sp Atk: 0
Obtained: Given to Raguna by Stella a few days after the game's start
Notes: The Cheap Axe is so old and in such disuse that it cannot be used for
   anything other than chopping up those small branches in Raguna's field. 
   Each branch you chop will net Raguna 1 lumber towards house upgrades.
_________
Chopping Axe

Atk: 18, Req Skl: 10, Sp Atk: 1
Obtained: Upgrade from Cheap Axe
Notes: With the Choppign Axe in hand, Raguna can finally chop up the stumps
   that clutter his field. It will take 6 "Special Attack"s to break just one
   stump, however, so be prepared to drain a lot of RP to be able to clear a
   few stumps that might be in your way.
_________
Lumber Axe

Atk: 40, Req Skl: 30, Sp Atk: 2
Obtained: Upgrade from Chopping Axe
Notes: The Lumber Axe is a bit of an upgrade from the Chopping Axe. It's only
   purpose is still to clear the branches and stumps, but now that same 
   "Special Attack" command will break up stumps in 3 swings.
_________
Mountain Axe

Atk: 88, Req Skl: 50, Sp Atk: 3
Obtained: Upgrade from Lumber Axe
Notes: The Mountain Axe is just another upgrade to the system, reducing the
   number of "Special Attack"s to 2 to reduce a stump to lumber.
_________
Miracle Axe

Atk: 192, Req Skl: 80, Sp Atk: 4
Obtained: Upgrade from Mountain Axe
Notes: The Miracle Axe makes you an honorary member of Kross's Miraculous
   Construction Team! With this holy axe Raguna can now break stumps with
   1 spectacular "Special Attack."

========
Sickles:
========

Cheap Sickle

Atk: 8, Req Skl: 5, Sp Atk: 0
Obtained: Talk to Erik every day (select "Just chat" when he is inside tending
   his seed shop) and he will eventually give you the sickle.
Notes: The sickle is used to cut down any plant in Raguna's field and in 
   dungeon fields. Simply ensure that the plant you want to be rid of is in
   the highlighted square and press "A". The sickle is useful for getting rid
   of regrowable plants at the end of a season, eliminating weeds from your
   field, and cutting grass to create food for the monsters in your barn.
__________
Iron Sickle

Atk: 18, Req Skl: 16, Sp Atk: 1
Obtained: Upgrade from Cheap Sickle
Notes: With the Iron Sickle you can now use the "Special Attack" to cut down
   a 3x1 row of plants directly in front of you. Be sure that you reall want 
   to dispose of all 3 targeted plants before swinging though, as there is no
   way to undo your work with the sickle.
__________
Quality Sickle

Atk: 40, Req Skl: 34, Sp Atk: 2
Obtained: Upgrade from Iron Sickle
Notes: With the Quality Sickle you can now cut down a 3x3 area of plants that
   surround you, much like when you plant seeds. Again, be very careful that
   none of those 9 squares contain something that you need or really wanted to
   keep for whatever reason.
__________
Super Sickle

Atk: 55, Req Skl: 63, Sp Atk: 3
Obtained: Upgrade from Quality Sickle
Notes: With the Super Sickle in hand you can now cut down a 5x5 swath of 
   plants surrounding Raguna. While a 5x5 area seems incredibly inconvenient
   for doing anything in a Harvest Moon game, there is still the risk of
   cutting down something you need, so retain your caution.
__________
Legend Sickle

Atk: 192, Req Skl: 99, Sp Atk: 4
Obtained: Upgrade from Super Sickle
Notes: The Legend Sickle makes you able to cut down an incredible 6x6 area
   of plants or grass surrounding Raguna. That means a set of four bags worth
   of fodder seeds, fully matured, can be cut down in one mighty whirl of this
   blade from Raguna's hand.

==============
Fishing Poles:
==============

Cheap Pole

Atk: 12, Req Skl: 1, Sp Atk: 0
Obtained: Cinnamon gives Raguna the Cheap Pole soon after the two meet
Notes: The Fishing Pole is what Raguna needs to, you guessed it, catch fish!
   Simply get Raguna right up next to a pool of water and cast away. When the
   animation changes and you hear the pole strain, a bar will appear with 2
   colored areas: red, blue, and green. Hit the A Button once while the moving
   line is in the blue or green area to catch the fish. Catching a fish while 
   the bar is in the green area will result in a "Perfect Catch" which means 
   the fish you caught will be 2-3 levels higher than the normal range of 
   levels that you had been catching previously.
_________
Beginner's Pole

Atk: 26, Req Skl: 10, Sp Atk: 1
Obtained: Upgrade from Cheap Pole
Notes: With the upgrade to the Beginner's Pole Raguna can now use the 
   "Special Attack" command while fishing. Using the "Special Attack" will
   allow Raguna to catch a higher level range of fish at a higher RP cost. Let
   me assure you, however, that this increase in RP use is more than worth it.
   The worth of the "Special Attack" becomes even more evident the more you
   upgrade the Pole.
_________
Average Pole

Atk: 56, Req Skl: 30, Sp Atk: 2
Obtained: Upgrade from Beginner's Pole
Notes: The Average Pole, when used with the "Special Attack" will now allow
   Raguna to catch fish between levels 4 and 6, and possible higher depending
   on where you fish, so just keep casting away until you gather enough
   materials to upgrade the Pole once again.
_________
Famous Pole

Atk: 120, Req Skl: 45, Sp Atk: 3
Obtained: Upgrade from Average Pole
Notes: The Famous Pole will allow Raguna to catch fish upwards of level 8 and
   9 on a regular basis, so have some fun while you gather stuff for your
   next upgrade.
_________
Sacred Pole

Atk: 255, Req Skl: 99, Sp Atk: 4
Obtained: Upgrade from Famous Pole
Notes: the Sacred Pole is a rediculously good Fishing Pole that will net you
   level 10 fish almost every time, as well as increasing the number of rare
   fish you catch. Again, be sure you are utilizing the "Special Attack"
   command with every cast.

                               ____________ 
                              |            |
                              | Your Field |                    [FLD]
                              |____________|

Your Field is simply a large area of land that has been set aside specifically
for Raguna to use to grow crops. The field has not been used in a long time,
however, so you will have to clear out a lot of branches, rocks, stumps, 
boulders, and weeds before you can even make room to grow any crops. 

The biggest problem here is your tools. The tools that you get to start the
game are in very shoddy condition and can only be used for the basics of the
basics. You should use the axe to break as many branches as you can, since
Raguna cannot break stumps until you upgrade the axe to at least the second
level, and to begin building your supply of lumber for house extensions. Also
be sure to use Raguna's Hammer to demolish the small rock clusters that may
be dotted around the Field. 

You could use the Sickle to cut down any weeds in the Field, but it is more 
economical to simply pick the weeds and place them in the shipping bin that is
located on the western edge of the Field. Weeds sell for 10G each and are 
always in plentiful supply, so go ahead and gather them up for some quick 
cash. 10G might not seem like much, but consider that a bag of Turnip Seeds
sells for 10G in local shops, so each weed that you ship will allow you to
purchase a bag of Turnip Seeds. Turnips sell for 210G each, and each bag will
grow 9 Turnips in 4 days. That 1 weed you shipped just made you 1890G in four
days time.

Once you have the land cleared of debris, use the Hoe to till the land.
Tilling land prepared it for the reception of seeds that Raguna will 
haphazardly toss around straight from the bag. Once the seeds have been spread
be sure and water the plants every day until the mature enough for Raguna to
harvest. All crops have an average growth time that can vary depending on the
state of Trampoli's Runey population. The Runeys will be explained at length
later on in the guide, but just bear in mind that effective management of
your Runeys will make crops grow rediculously fast, and poor Runey management
will make your crops grow excruciatingly slow.

To the east of the Field will be a lumber shed that serves no purpose other 
than to let you know how much lumber you have available for house extensions.
Just northwest of the lumber shed if Raguna's well, where you can refill the
Watering Can and even fish if your feeling froggy. To the northeast of the
Field is a small hill where Raguna's monster barn will be built. The barn and
all of its intricacies will be explained in a later section.

For now, here is a semi-detailed text map of the Homestead area of Trampoli:

Crops are going to be your main source of income for at least the beginning
of your Rune Factory career. Each season (except for Winter) has its own set
of crops that can only be grown during that season. All of the crop seeds you
buy will be bought from Erik's store in the South district. You can buy
Turnip Seeds from Danny's Grocery in the Business District, but why support
that lazy bum?

The following is a list of all of the crops that can be grown, organized by
season and alphabetically therein. Note that the growing times listed will be
only for times when Trampoli's Runeys are in balance, not nearing extinction
or prosperity.

Crop prices listed, as with all prices listed in this FAQ, are for level 1 
items only. If you use the Greenifier and the Seed Maker to get seeds and 
plants that are higher than level 1, the price of these plants will be higher
than the ones I have listed.

                                |_________|

Flowers sell for an exorbitant amount of money in Rune Factory Frontier, but
take so long to grow they are not normally feasible profit crops. Their main
purpose in the game is to provide key ingredients that are used to make the
most powerful weapons and armor available, as well as early storyline events.
Keep in mind that most of the flowers will take more than one season to grow
in Raguna's field under normal runey conditions. Therefore in order to grow
the flowers that take mroe than 30 days to bloom you will have to utilize the
fields that are scattered throughout the 3 seasonal dungeons and Whale Island.

All flower seeds will be sold by Rosetta in her Materia Store once it opens
roughly halfway through your first Spring in the game. The prices of seeds is
a bit steep, but the flowers always sell for a ton of money at the end, if
that's what you're interested in. 

Like the Crops above, the Flowers listed will be in alphabetical order by
season. Again, growth times listed are for balanced runey distribution, not
prosperity or approaching extinction.

Alright, so thus far the game has seemed just like every other Harvest Moon
game you've ever played. "What makes Rune Factory different?" you ask? One
word: Dungeons.

Rune Factory adds a dungeon crwaling element to the classic farming simulation
formula that the Harvest Moon games do so well. Each dungeon consists of no 
less than 4 levels, each with their own set of monsters to fight and paths and
puzzles to solve. In addition, each dungeon also contains fields that you can
use to supplement the crops growing in your own field. Placing a crop that is
regrowable in a dungeon field is an excellent way to maintain a steady source
of income, as well as providing a method of RP replenishment in the form of
Rune Orbs that will appear for every 9 mature crops that you have in a dungeon
field. Each Rune Orb will replenish 125 RP, or 1/4 of your RP bar.

Along with having their own fields, each dungeon also has a corresponding 
season that will always be within it. The Green Ruins are perpetually Spring,
the Lava Ruins are constantly Summer, and the Snow Ruins will always be Fall.
Whale Island, the dungeon that will be the first you visit, is capable of 
maintaining any crop from any season. You could plant Turnips right next to
Tomatoes and across from Eggplants if you really wanted to. 

Dungeons are also the only place where you can grow most flowers, bought from
Rosetta's Materia store once it opens. There are a few flowers that naturally
can be grown within the span of one season, but most of them come with a 
growth period of more than 30 days. Unless you have several of the town areas
in Runey prosperity, growing anything with a time requirement of me than 30
days becomes impossible to do within one season. Luckily, you can plant those
flowers in the seasonal dungeons and let the time flow by as you water them
to maturity. There are several flowers that are winter grown only, and since
there is no dungeon devoted specifically to Winter those flowers must be grown
in Whale Island only.

Each dungeon will also feature a number of shortcuts. The Green, Lava, and 
Snow Ruins will all have a staircase that is linked to every floor. That means
right from the beginning of those three dungeons you can run right down to the
bottom level where the dungeon boss lurks, but there's a catch. The only way
to access the stairs is to unlock the door from the outside. That means even 
though you could run right down to the boss level from the beginning, you will
be unable to leave the staircase area to get to that boss. in each level of 
the dungeon you will have to make your way to the staircase to unlock the door
so that you can return to that level in the future without running back 
through the entire dungeon.

Whale Island works slightly different. Instead of a staircase linking the 
different levels there is a series of shortcuts that will take you farther 
into the dungeon once you unlock them from that farther point. I will go more
in depth about unlocking these shortcuts and where they lead in the Whale
Island section of this chapter.

Now, to get a bit more in depth on the dungeons around town.

                               _____________
                              |             |
                              | Green Ruins |                   [GRN]
                              |_____________|

The Green Ruins are the easiest of the 4 dungeons to complete and can be 
opened within the first week of starting the first Spring. In order to gain
access to the Ruins, you will have to talk to Mist several times each day
until she mentions Raguna offering to cut down the weeds in front of her house

In order to do this you will have to have obtained the Cheap Sickle from Erik
and then simply use that sickle to cut down the tall grass south of Mist's
home until the stairs down into the Ruins are clear. 

Once inside the Ruins you can find all of the same colored grasses that are
found in your field in Spring: Orange, Red, Yellow, and Purple, along with
Bamboo Shoots and Medicinal Herbs.

================
Green Ruins B1F:
================

You will need some sort of sharp implement while navigating through the Green
Ruins, but the sickle that you are required to have before even entering the
dungeon will work fine, as will any weapon you have bought or made. Many times
throughout the dungeon there will be webs of vines covering doorways that need
to be cut down. Once you cut down the first of these vines, just north of the
entrance to the Ruins, head east and open up the door there, which will be the
shortcut for your use later on.

After opening up the shortcut head back to the west and cut down another set
of vines blocking the next doorway. Head through and go north past the two
Ants that will appear and keep running north through the room with all of the
mining rocks and into a large room containing several farmable patches and 4
monster Gates. In this room head east and then south near the two Gates that
will spawn Ants. Cut down the vines through the southern passage and then 
follow the path around to the southeast, past the two Gates that spawn 
Chitters and cut down the vines that will block the doorway to the east. Head
through here and descend the staircase to B2F.

================
Green Ruins B2F:
================

Upon descending into the 2nd floor of the Green Ruins head directle west and
cut down the vines blocking your path. Head north to find a Gate that will
spawn a Spring, followed by some rocks that cannot be broken yet, turn around
and head south instead. Down to the south you will find a Gate thet will set
2 Slimes on you near a door. Head through this door after dealing with the
Slimes to unlock the Secret stairway on B2F. Head back out and west to another
Gate that will spawn another Slime. Head south from here and cut down the
blocking vines to continue.

In this room will be a Gate right away that will spawn a Spring and another
Gate to the south that will spawn two Big Mucks. You can ignore the Mucks for
now, as you need to run west to continue from the north end of the room. Make
your way northwest and then north to another set of vines that you must cut
out of your way.

Past these vines will be a Gate that will send a Slime at you. Head northwest
from here to where a Spring will spawn in front of some vines that block your
path to the Gate spawning the Spring. Take this path west and then immediately
south through the door, past the two Gates spawning Slimes, and then southeast
to the stairs leading to B3F.

================
Green Ruins B3F:
================

From the stairs from B2F head northwest through the room where the Gate spawns
a Little Wizard who will launch fireballs at you. Head north and then east 
past the mining rocks and crates to find vines blocking your path. Cut them
down and head north once passing through.

From here you will run around a large circle past four Gates, one that will
spawn two Hornets, one that will spawn two Cluckies, one that will spawn
a Little Wizard, and another that will spawn two mroe Hornets. You will now
be on the east side of the circular path with a vine-covered passage in your
way. You know what to do with the vines, then head east.

You will now come to a room that will spawn a Buffamoo, a Hornet, and a Little
Wizard from 2 separate Gates. Deal with them or run through, as is your 
preference. Head south from this room to continue,

Head southwest through the next room, past the crates and soil patches before
heading north at the far end to another vine-covered doorway. Head through
to find yourself back at that circular path, but now on the south side of it.

On the path head southwest and take care of the Gate that spawns 3 Hornets.
Nearby is also the door to the Shortcut staircase, so head in there briefly to
unlock it, and then continue west.

Around the path you will find two gates which will send 2 Cluckies and a
Hornet at you. Deal with them and cut the vines to the south and head down 
that path to find the stairway to B4F.

================
Green Ruins B4F:
================

In B4F there is really very little to see. Head east from the staircase to 
find a fairly small room containing a few plots of soil, a small watering hole
which is great for catching valuable fish, and a passage to the south that
leads to a treasure chest. The door to the north of the room will take you to
the Boss chamber where the Cluckogrif awaits you.

| The Cluckogrif is just what its name suggests, a griffon with the parts of |
| a chicken instead of that of an eagle. If you remember to stay mobile and  |
| don't stay up close to this beast for very long you should do fine. The    |
| simplest method of defeating this monster is to bring along the Fire Rod   |
| that Kanno gives you for bringing him a couple items and just blast away   |
| at the thing. Using this strategy will deplete your RP quickly, however,   |
| so be sure to bring some RP restoratives to keep you blasting. If you      |
| choose to go the melee route, simply avoid the beast's projectile attack,  |
| close in for a couple swift strikes, and then retreat before it can strike |
| back. When the Cluckogrif approaches defeat it will go into hyper mode.    |
| this means it will turn a nasty shade of orange and start attacking faster |
| and harder than it was before. If you are using the Fire Rod, keep your    |
| distance and just keep shooting away. If you are using physical attacks,   |
| be even more cautious of the beast's claw swipes and projectiles as you    |
| approach for your attacks.                                                 |
|                                                                            |
| when the Cluckogrif is defeated it will drop eight items for you to snag.  |
| It will always drop a Giant Cockscomb, two Bird Feathers, two Coppers, and |
| 3 random cooking ingredients, usually a Rice and two others. Grab what you |
| will and head on out. You have just defeated the Green Ruins!              |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

                              |____________|

The Lava Ruins will become available after you have defeated the giant chicken
that guards the bottom of the Green Ruins. If you have gone to the Mountain 
Path area of the town then you have no doubt seen the sapling. It should grow
into a small tree after a couple of weeks of gametime, and then after you
defeat the giant chicken in the Green Ruins the tree should again grow, only
it will now feature a small hole in its trunk. 

Once that small hole appears you will need to get the Harvester from Candy and
collect 10 Tree Runeys (Check the Runey section later on in this FAQ to find
out how). With those 10 Runeys in your inventory either talk to Candy again
and ask her for a Rune Stone of the Tree variety or you can leave the Runeys
on the desk in the 2nd floor of the Clocktower and Candy will make the Rune 
Stone and leave it on that same desk for you to retrieve the following day.

With your Tree Rune Stone in hand head to the Mountain Path and insert the 
Stone into the tree. overnight it will grow into a flourishing tree that will 
finally succeed in pushing the rocks away from the opening of the RUins behind
it.

Congratulations, you now have access to the Lava Ruins!

The monsters that you will fight in the first level of the Lava Ruins will be
roughly on par with the monsters found on the third level of the Green Ruins,
if a bit stronger. There will be a few red ants that will be only marginally 
stronger than their counterparts in the Green Ruins, but their black neighbors
can give you some issues for the beginning of the dungeon.

Also in the Lava Ruins will be all of the colored grasses that can be found in
the summer in your field, inlcuding Blue, Purple, and orange grasses and 
Medicinal Herbs.

===============
Lava Ruins B1F:
===============

From the entrance to the Ruins head north to the room where 3 Ants and a 
Killer Ant will appear. From here head east down the stairs to where two more
Killer Ants will spawn near a door. Head through the door to unlock the 
shortcut stairs. Now head back to the room at the beginning and hit the bomb-
on-a-pedestal near the pile of rubble to clear your way. Once you activate the
bomb, put some distance between i and yourself as explosions tend to hurt.

Once the rubble is clear head north into another room where 2 Ants and 2
Killer Ants will appear. Head out the northeast exit from here and go around
the hole in the ground to reach a spot where a Gate will spawn a Ghost. Head
north through the open doorway to find a room with some mining rocks and a 
Gate that will spawn 2 Killer Ants and a Ghost for your cutting pleasure.

Head west from here to reach a room with 1 Gate that will spawn 4 Ghosts. Hit 
the bomb near the Gate to dispatch with it quickly while you avoid the Ghosts'
attacks. Once they are out of your way, head through the door to the north and
down the stairs to B2F.

===============
Lava Ruins B2F:
===============

From the staircase head west to find a room where 2 Furpies will spawn. From
this room go south to a room with some farmable soil and a Gate that will send
2 Ducks at you. Exit this area to the southwest, go up the stairs, through the
door, and go immediately south to continue.

Over the bridge there will be a Gate spawning 2 Mini Golems, who have a lot of
HP for this area and two separate projectile attacks. Head east from here to 
escape them and continue on. In the open area head northeast around the rubble
and then back south. When you get back to the path ignore the southern way and
head east and then south to open up the shortcut. Head back out of the
shortcut and go east again to find yourself in a large room.

Head north in this room throguh the door to find a couple of crates and the
stairs leading down to B3F.

===============
Lava Ruins B3F:
===============

From the stairs from B2F head north a bit, then west down a long flight of
stairs. A Mini Golem and an Ignis will spawn at the bottom of the stairs, so
deal with them as you see fit and then head south to find a bomb. Hit the bomb
and clear away as you wait for it to explode, clearing the way for you to 
continue. 

After heading east through the bomb-cleared path two Mini Golems will spawn.
Head south and then east up another logn staircase where two Ignis and a Mini
Golem will appear. In the room atop the stairs head east and then south around
the rubble to find a Gate with a Little Emperor and an Ignis. South of these
two is the shortcut staircase, but no door to unlock here. Head west down yet
another long staircase to continue.

At the bottom of the staircase will be a room with 2 Mini Golems and a 
Scorpion. Ignore them and take the immediate door to the west. Head south, 
west around the wall, and north to find a Gate with a Little Emperor and a 
Mini Golem, head through the door to the west to continue.

In this room hit the bomb to the north and clear away. Once it explodes head
through the newly opened doorway to the northeast. Head north past the bomb
and rubble and then west up a long staircase with two Little Emperors awaiting
you at the top. Head nroth from here past the Gate spawning two more Little
Emperors to find a Bomb Launching Pad and  a Gate atop another staircase that
will send a Hammer Troll after you.

Head east down the stairs past this Troll to find yet another Hammer Troll
awaiting you at the bottom. Head north past this one and its Gate to find the
stairs leading you down to B4F.

===============
Lava Ruins B4F:
===============

From the stairs from B3F hit the Bomb Launcher with your Hammer to send a bomb
flying at the rubble to your south to clear it from your path. Head south down
the stairs to find two Hammer Trolls awaiting your arrival. Head west past the
Gate that spawned them to get to a room with several soil plots in it. Head to
the southwest corner of this room to go on.

Head south through this exit and down the path to find a Gate that will spawn
two Summers. Head west from this Gate and then south past the mining rocks to
reach a Gate with two Hammer Trolls and a Bomb Launcher. Head east from here
to reach another Gate that will spawn two Summers. From there run around the
rubble piles to the east to find two Buffaloos waiting for you. Past them to 
the east is another Bomb Launcher. Hit the lever with your hammer to send the
bomb flying north to clear soem rubble that you cannot even get to yet. Head
south from here to unlock the shortcut.

From the shortcut head north to the Bomb Launcher and then west past the
Buffaloos and rubble and then head north up the stairs. Atop the stairs is a
bomb, hti it and retreat a bit to avoid the blast. Once the way is clear head
up and rotate the Bomb Launcher that you will find 3 times so that it will
launch its load to the east. You can either avoid the Minotaur that will 
appear there or defeat it, but it will most likely just shout at you while you
work on the Launcher. Once you have the Launcher properly aligned, hit the
lever with your hammer to clear the rubble at the bottom of the stairs to the
east. Head down these stairs to continue.

In this room will be a few farmable soil patches and 2 Hammer Trolls waiting
near their Gate. Head north past them up the narrow path to find a Gate that
will spawn 2 Summers. Deal with the Summers and their Gate, as it will block
your path otherwise, and continue north up the stairs. Once you are back to 
the north you will notice a large boulder with a heap of dirt in front of it.
Break out your Hoe and use it on the dirt in front of the boulder to send it
rolling down the stairs south of it. Follow the boulder south, but be careful
not to get in front of it or it will severely damage you. 

South down the path at the bottom of the stairs will be a room with two
Buffaloos and the stairs that will take you to B5F

===============
Lava Ruins B5F:
===============

From the stairs from B4F head north and use yoru Hoe on the dirt in front of
another boulder and follow it down the stairs to the west as it bowls over two
Weagles and their Gate. In the room at the bottom of those stairs will be a
Gate that will spawn two Dark Slimes and a Bomb Launcher. Rotate the Launcher
so that it will lanch its load south and hit the lever with your Hammer to
clear the rubble at the bottom of the stairs. Head south down those stairs to
continue.

In the room at the bottom of the stairs will be 3 paths. The south path is 
blocked for now, and the east path leads to a room chock full of monsters and
no real progress anyhow, so head west down the stairs to come to a room with
two Gates that will spawn two monsters each: Minotaurs and Weagles. Head south
past the Weagles to descend a shrot staircase and head onto a platform with a
Gate and two Minotaurs. Atop the stairs to the east is a boulder with a dirt
pile, so clear the dirt and then cleart the way as the boulder destroys the
Gate and probably the two Minotaurs with it. Head east up the stairs to find
a room with a Gate that will spawn two Dark Slimes and contains rubble 
blocking the south exit. You will notice that the north exit is also blocked
by rubble, but there is a boulder with a dirt mound behind said rubble. We 
need to get up there, so head east again for now.

Up the stairs to the east will be another Gate spawning two Dark Slimes. Head
south from here to open up the shortcut to B5F and then head back north past 
the mining rocks and go west. You will now be in the room with that boulder
we saw moments ago. Get rid of the dirt pile with your Hoe and follow the 
boulder all the way south to the stairs leading to B6F.

===============
Lava Ruins B6F:
===============

B6F is the floor of the Lava Ruins containing the dungeon's boss. The stairs
from B5F will leave you in a large room with 3 mining rocks, the first place
in the game where you can find Gold, a good amount of farmable soil, and a 
pool that is excellent for fishing. The boss chamber is again to the north;
if you feel prepared, have at it.

|                             Morphing Slime                                 |
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|                                                                            |
| The Morphing Slime will actually come in the form of several groupings of  |
| monsters before the boss itself will appear to face you. First up is a     |
| a group of 20 or so Hornets. Bust out some form of AoE here and just hack  |
| away as they don't have much health. A 2-Handed Sword is recommended for   |
| its powerful spin attack. Once the Hornets have been subdued 6 Panthers    |
| appear.                                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| Deal with the Panthers any way you choose, but be cautioned that they will |
| shift to the side when you come close and shoot energy balls straight      |
| ahead of them when they do so. They are also fairly weak in the HP area,   |
| so dispatch with them to make two gigantic trolls appear.                  |
|                                                                            |
| The two gigantic Trolls are easier than their daunting appearance suggests.|
| You should have brought your Fire Rod with you, use it on these Trolls.    |
| I know it seems crazy, since these are fire-based monsters and all, but    |
| the Fire Rod creates an explosion that hits its target more than once. This|
| actually is the most effective way of dealing with these Trolls, so do so  |
| and then break out your AoE attack again and prepare for Slimes.           |
|                                                                            |
| If you thought the Hornets that began the fight were overwhelming, prepare |
| to be screwed. The last of the setup fights is no less than 30 Slimes that |
| will hurt if you let them hti you. Keep moving and hit them in groups with |
| your AoE attack when they pop out of the ground. Once they are all done in |
| all of the spirits will come together in the form of one gigantic Slime.   |
|                                                                            |
| The Morphing Slime itself is nothing too spectacular. He has a lot of HP   |
| but again try using the Fire Rod and keeping your distance, as the most    |
| damaging attack this monster possesses is only usable at close range, and  |
| obviously cannot be used if you are nto close range. Other than its jump   |
| attack at close range the Slime employs two other attacks, one a slow      |
| moving shockwave in several directions, and the other a series of four     |
| explosions that will follow you as you run. If you keep moving, these four |
| explosions will not hurt you, and if you position yourself correctly the   |
| shockwaves will miss you as well. Keep takign potshots at this thing with  |
| your Fire Rod until it finally gives in and you can claim victory.         |
|                                                                            |
| The Morphing Slime will always drop 2 Gold Ores, a Red Core, several items |
| used in cooking, and an Ancient Relic, which will provide entry into the   |
| next dungeon: The Snow Ruins.                                              |

                              |____________|

The Snow Ruins will become available for your exploration pleasures after you
defeat the Morphing slime at the bottom of the Lava Ruins. When you defeat 
that Slime you will get a white rectangular rock called a Relic. Take that
Relic to the pile of rocks just east of the Rune Archives (Library) to find a
large white stone with a rectangular hole in the front. Simply place the Relic
in the hole and watch as that big white stone slides to the left opening the
staircase that will take you down into the Snow Ruins.

===============
Snow Ruins B1F:
===============

The Snow Ruins are a bit different than the other dungeons in that the Snow
Ruins contains two shortcut orbs. The first will appear as part of the story
of the game and will take you to B3F. The second will appear to the right of
the first on and will take you to B7F where the boss resides once you face him
for the first time.

From the entrance head north to a room that will spawn two Hornet Queens. Head
to the passage tothe northwest and break up the ice cluster here with either
your Hammer or a Fire-based weapon. The next room will be filled with freezing
cold gas that will damag you slightly if it touches you. Destroy the machine
itself or destroy the wires sticking out of the ground to stop the freezing 
air. In the southwest corner of this room is snother ice cluster, break it to
find the Shortcut Staircase for B1F. Head back to the room with the machine
and take the passage to the northwest, past another ice cluster, to continue.

Down the stairs to the west is a Gate that will spawn two mroe Hornet Queens.
Deal with them and then head north to find a room with 1 Gate that will send
2 Hornet Queens and 2 Shadow Panthers at you. Take the exit heading north from
this room and then head east to find a room with a Gate and 2 Death Stalkers.
Defeat the Death Stalkers and the Gate, as well as the wires jutting out from
the ground, and then head back west and then north into the room there. 

Head north past the Gate that will spawn 2 Death Stalkers and 2 Glaces to find
a door with some ice rimming the bottom. It will open as you approach and 
behind it will be the stairs leading down to B2F.

===============
Snow Ruins B2F:
===============

The first room you enter south of the stairs from B1F will contain a veritable
gauntlet of enemies right away. You will face 4 Glaces and 2 Shadow Panthers,
along with a Mammoo that is frozen in ice that will free itself once you get
rid of the Frozen Air generators. There are 4 doors leading out of this room,
including a passage to the south. Take the only door along the western wall to
head towards your goal.

From this door head west until you come to a T-shaped corner and go south. In
the next room head to the southeast corner and take the passage south from 
there to enter a large room with some mining rocks and an ice cluster to the
southwest. Break the cluster and follow that path west to the next room.

This room will contain 2 Gates that will send 4 Glaces, 2 Death Stalkers, and
a Daemon at you, as well as a Mammoo waiting to the south and a Freezing Air
Generator. Take care of all of it and then head east down the passageway. You
will slide down an icy hill down this path, but it will take you south to the 
shortcut, so open that up and then head east again to the end of the room and
up the inline to reach a room with a Generator (destroy the wires right away)
and a Gate that will spawn 2 Glaces, 2 Shadow Pantehrs, and a Mammoo. Head 
north from this room to enter another large room with another Generator which
you can destroy the wires to quickly. Do so and then continue all the way to
the north past the mining rocks and head west into the passage.

In this passage you will go up an incline in the path and come to a Gate with
2 Death Stalkers. Defeat them and exit out into the gauntlet room where we
started the floor. Take the door along the western wall again, and again head
south when the option presents itself. Take the southeastern door to a 
southbound passage and then take the exit west from that room. Head to the
south exit this time and find the stairs leading to B3F.

===============
Snow Ruins B3F:
===============

Right away in B3F you will find some mining rocks and an ice cluster blocking
a path leading north. Bust the cluster and follow this path into a large room
where you will face a Daemon and 3 Unicos, along with their Gate. Defeat them
and head north again. In the next room will be a Freezing Air generator along
with a Unico, a Daemon, and a Peck. Defeat them and head up the ramp to get
rid of their Gate as well. Destroy the wires at the bottom of the ramp, then
climb it and head south. You will come to the room where you fought the Daemon
and 3 Unicos moments ago, but now you are on the top platform. Destroy the 
wires there and slide down the ramp. The door to the east is now unlocked for
your passage through.

Through the door is a passage leading to a room with an Ice Cannon in it. As
long as you are not standing in one place for more than 5 seconds, the Cannon
will not hit you, so just keep moving. If you destroy the wires to the east
of the Cannon, it will blow up and harrass you no more. Head south to open up 
the shortcut to B3F and then head back north to the room with the Cannon and 
take the eastern exit.

Follow the passage east for a bit, then take the north passage to a large room
with a Cannon in the center. Head up the ramp to the west to fight 3 Daemons 
and find the wires that control the cannon down below. Destroy the Daemons and
the wires and head back down the ramp and go north again. In the north end of
the room you will notice a Minotaur King trapped in a block of ice who is also
blocking your passage to what appears to be a door to the north. Head up the
ramp just east of the frozen Minotaur King to fight 3 more Daemons. Destroy
them, their Gate, and the wires to free the Minotaur King down below. Head
back down the ramp, defeat the Minotaur King, and head north to find the door.

This door will probably be locked the first time you come here. It is part of
a storyline event that must be cleared before the rest of the Snow Ruins can
be explored and conquered. Once this event is completed, you can go through
the room north of the frozen Minotaur King, take the passage east past the
ice cluster and destroy the wires in that room. Now head back to the room with
the frozen Minotaur King and head back south past the ice cannon and then head
east. The incline that was previously frozen over in this room has now thawed,
allowing you to continue through the Ruins. Let's do so.

Atop the now thawed incline head south to find a treasure chest, and then go
east down another incline. Head north and then east into the next room to find
a Gate with a Mammoo and 2 Daemons. Head north from here to find the stairs 
leading to B4F.

===============
Snow Ruins B4F:
===============

From the stairs from B3F head south and down the ramp and south again. Here
you will find a Gate with 2 Hunter Wolves. Head up the ramp to the west in 
this room to find an ice cannon, 2 more Hunter Wolves, and a Freezing Air
Generator. Destroy the two wires next to each other to take care of the
machines and then dispatch the Wolves and head south down the pathway past the
two Buffazoos that appear. Head west down the next ramp to find a Gate with 2
more Hunter Wolves, a Minotaur King, and a Mini Dragon. Head west past them 
and follow the passage east to find the shortcut stairs.

From the shortcut take the passage north, then west, then north again past the
Ice Cannon to find a large room. Go immediately west and destroy the wire
there. After that head back to the east and north to find a ramp. Head up said
ramp and then head west and then north past the Hunter Wolves and descend the
ramp to the east before continuing north through the door.

As you head north you will come across two Blood Panthers. All the way north
will be a ramp leading up, then a path leading south past another Blood 
Panther and an ice cannon. South of the ice cannon will be the Gate these 
Blood Panthers are coming from and the wire to destroy the cannon itself. Do
so and take the ramp to the east back down, and then north past the Buffazoo.
In the northeast corner of the room is a passage to the east. Take it and 
follow it east to a large room and then south to another room containing a
ramp and the stairs down to B5F. Descend and let's move on, shall we?

===============
Snow Ruins B5F:
===============

Right away you will find yourself pitted against 2 Hunter Wolves at a nearby
Gate as well as a few mining rocks at your disposal. Head up the ramp here and
follow it around to another Gate that will spawn 3 more Hunter Wolves, 2 up
top with you, and 1 down below. Take the ramp down and head southeast and
head up another ramp to go south, and then east again, and then south again,
and then east again and down a ramp into the next room.

In this room is a Gate that will spawn a Hunter Wolf and a Minotaur King, with
an ice cluster in between them, so dispose of that as you defeat the monsters
here. Take the passage south to the next large room here where you will find
several Minotaur Kings, as well as a few Little Wizards and an ice cannon atop
a small platform in the room's center with ramps to either side. Head to the
northwest corner of this room and follow the path up to find a boulder. This
oen is held up by ice rather than the dirt of the Lava Ruins, so use your 
Hammer or fire weapon to bust the ice and run south to get out of its way. 
Once the boulder is out of the way head past where it was to start and then
head west o the next room.

In this room is a Gate that will spawn two Souls. Dispatch with them and head
south to open up the shortcut, then head back into the room and go around to
the west and exit the southwest part of the room to find the staircase leading
down to B6F.

===============
Snow Ruins B6F:
===============

Right away in B6F you will be confronted with a Gate spawning two Tricky Mucks
and an ice cannon to your immediate north, as well as a gate that will spawn 
two Arch Daemons as you approach the ice cannon. Ignore the Tricky Mucks, as
they will not attack you unless you come near them and deal with the ice
cannon first by destroying the wire next to it. Then deal with the two Arch
Daemons while dodging the other ice cannon to the northeast.

Near that northeast cannon will appear two Dragons. Take them out while
avoiding the cannon blasts, or attack the cannon until it blows up while
fighting the Dragons. Head east from the Dragons past the Tricky Muck that
was hiding in between the two platforms to find a Gate that will send two more
Dragons at you, as well as another couple of Tricky Mucks. South of here is
another ice cannon as well as two sets of wires. the ramp leading west from 
here is the path to the shortcut stairs, but as of right now I am unsure how
to open them on B6F. Not to worry, though, as the shortcut is very close to
the path down on B5F, so it is not difficult to reach B6F from there.

From the blocked off shortcut head north to where the Dragons and Tricky Mucks
were before and then head east. Past their Gate will be an open area. To the
north will be an ice cannon as well as a Gate that will send two Souls out 
after you. it is easy enough to ignore the Souls and just head west from the
fissure inf ront of the ice cannon. Down this path you will find a Gate that
will spawn two Arch Daemons and two Tricky Mucks. Deal with them and then turn
the corner to head north from their Gate, then go east down the ramp.

From the ramp bottom head north and then west down the passage to find another
Gate that spawns two Tricky Mucks and a Dragon, although the Dragon will be
out of your way down a passage to the southeast guarding a treasure chest. 
Head south around the crack in the floor and then north to antoher Gate that
will spawn two more Dragons and two Arch Daemons who will guard the stairs
down to B7F and the boss chamber.

===============
Snow Ruins B7F:
===============

Once you arrive in B7F run immediately south past the farmable soil and small
pond (best fishing in the game here) to open up the shortcut stairs. Now
go east at the pond to find yourself at a large door that will lead you to the
Boss's lair.

| The Ice Snake is arguably the strongest boss in the game, alongside the    |
| Giant squid that sits atop Whale Island. He takes a while just to get to   |
| him simply because he has an Ice Breath attack with he will use repeatedly |
| against you as you walk up the passageway towards him. This works to your  |
| advantage, however, since besides being excessively annoying, the Ice      |
| Breath attack is fairly weak. The easiest way to defeat this menacing boss |
| is to stand in front of one of the barricades and simply launch fireballs  |
| at the Snake with your Fire Rod (you do still have it, right?). He has     |
| more than a lot of HP, so be sure to being a lot of RP restoratives going  |
| into the battle with this guy and be prepared to spend most of your day    |
| simply launching fireball after fireball at him. If you do get close to    |
| the boss, be very careful as he has a lot of strength and will deal huge   |
| amounts of damage each time he hits you.                                   |

                             |______________|

Whale Island is the first dungeon you can access in Rune Factory Frontier. You
can reach it from the very instant you receive the Watering Can from Mist on
Spring 2. All you have to do is walk up to the off sprout growing in front of
the Clocktower, watch the scene with Stella, and water the sprout to grow the
enormous stalk that will take you up to Whale Island. Whale Island will be 
accessible at all times, except for Holidays in the beginning of the game. 
There is a second sprout that will grow into a similar stalk on the small
western island in Lake Trampoli that will appear by the end of the first 
Spring.

On Whale Island you can grow any crop or flower froma ny season at any time.
This means you could grow Turnips in Autumn, Tomatoes in the dead of Winter,
and Carrots during Spring. Also you will find all different types of colored
grasses here, as well as Bamboo Shoots and Mushrooms.

The first time you visit Whale Island you will have a conversation with the
spirit of the Island itself. You quickly find out that the Island is in danger
and requires you to save it. Don't worry about a time limit, though, the 
island will not fall while you are playing the game. Ever. Examine the large
black monument-looking stone that is in the middle of the area and then head 
on into the Island itself.

============================
Whale Island: Cave Entrance:
============================

In Whale Island - Cave Entrance you will find the easiest monsters in the 
game in the form of basic Goblins and red Ants. Both are great for leveling up
early in the game, so go nuts in here. 

In order to get to the next area simply keep running east until you get to a
spawn point with two Ants and keep moving east to enter the next area of the
Island.

In addition to boasting the easiest monsters in the game, the Cave Surface is
also the home to two shortcuts that you can open up later on in the Island.
When you get to Whale Island - Flank you can open a passage from the Cave
Surface directly there, bypassing the Cave Depths and Fin. When you reach the
Floating Chamber you can descend into the Tower of Rebirth and lower a rope
that will appear at the grassy spot just north of the entrance to the Cave
Surface that will take you there, which is almost the end of thd Dungeon.

===========================
Whale Island - Cave Depths:
===========================

Almost as soon as you enter this area of Whale Island you will receive a 
scene where Raguna will meet Melody, who will give you the Cheap Hammer, and
ask you to bust up the gigantic rock in front of her. Do so and release the
hot spring, allowing Melody to move to town and open the Laga Springs Bath
House in the Business District.

In the Cave Depths you will find Slime monsters, as well as Orcs and Orc 
Archers, the Archers being the most dangerous of the three, but by no means
a daunting enemy.

From the spot where you met Melody head southwest past the two poison patches 
and follow the path west and then south. After the path winds south and back 
east and opens up a bit continue runnign east to find a large, white, locked 
door. This is a door with a special lock that can only be opened by placing a 
Rune Stone in the pedestal just left of the door itself, any Rune Stone will 
work fine.

From this door head straight south to exit out onto the Whale's Fin.

==================
Whale Island: Fin:
==================

Whale Island Fin is a fairly straightforward area. You can simply follow the
stairs as they wind down the Fin and you will end up at the Lighthouse where
Iris lives. To meet Iris, consult the storyline section of this FAQ. There are
only three different types of monsters on the Fin: Woolies, Buffamoos, and
Silver Wolves. Of these, the Woolies are fairly harmless and the Buffamoos are
fairly slow. The most dangerous thing here is the Wolves that populate the
eastern portion of the Fin, and even they lost their luster once you reach
level 20 or so.

A number of treasure chests can be found on the Fin as well as monsters. Most
will contain cooking ingredients (Flour, Rice, Garlic, Chocolate) and 
sometimes different Ores, usually Copper.

In the northeast corner of the Fin (you have to descend the stairs and then
continue east along the path) will be a gate that is locked the first time
you come to it. In order to open it you must befriend Iris, consult the
Storyline section to learn how to do so.

=====================
Whale Island - Flank:
=====================

Whale Island's Flank is a foggy area with many poison patches on the ground.
You will need to bring a hefty suply of Neutralizers if you want to get rid of
them, but you can just as easily walk around them without inflicting poison
upon yourself. 

If you make your way up the first incline you will find a few spots where you
can grow crops, but not much else. Heading up the second incline will take you
to an area with several poisoned patches of ground and a monster gate that
will spawn a scorpion, which is easily avoidable. Walk around (or Neutralize)
the poisoned areas and head up the next incline. From here head west to find
a large rock that should have some sparkling around it. Use your hammer on 
this rock to open up the shortcut from the Cave Surface. After doing this, 
head back east past the Hobgoblin that spawns and descend the next incline.

Be wary of even more poison patches down here as you make you way around them,
avoiding the scorpions and fish that will appear. Once you clear the poison, 
again descend the next incline to the south. Here head east and go up the
next hill, again avoid the poison patches, go up yet another hill, and then
head east to an open space where four fishes will appear. Head east past them
to reach the next area: the Tail Tree.

There are 4 different types of monsters that will appear on the Flank: 
Hobgoblins, Scorpions, Fish, and Mini Golem. There is only one spot for the
Hobgoblin and Mini Golem each, so your main opponents will be the scorpions
and fish. The Mini Golem is also guarding two treasure chests in the southwest
corner of the area.

=========================
Whale Island - Tail Tree:
=========================

The Island's Tail Tree is exactly what it sounds like: a gigantic tree located
on the Whale's tail. The first time you enter the area Raguna will stop to 
marvel at the gigantic gathering of Runes that exists atop the tree. This
gigantic Rune is actually what is keeping the Island afloat, and when Raguna 
notices it shrinking, he knows how urgent his mission is.

To get through the Tail Tree area you will have to climb the tree. In order to
do this simply climb the giant root that touches the ground near the entrance.
Be watchful as you ascend, however, as the tree will drop a gigantic fruit 
that will roll down the same root you are climbing. There are several branches
and side steps where you can take solace from the rumbling fruit, but be 
cautious not to go too far out on these paths, as they are steep slopes that 
will drag you back down to a lower part of the tree, a la Chutes & Ladders.

As you climb the tree you will face two different types of monsters: Mantics
and Beetles. The Mantics are the more troublesome of the two, as they possess
both a long range, wind-based attack and a counterattack manouevre. Beetles 
are straightforward enemies that will hurt when they connect, but are fairly 
easy to avoid. If you descend down the root at the back side of the tree you
will come to an area containing a tresure chest, two mining rocks, and a Gate
that will spawn Fairy monsters. This is a good, early place to start
collecting Fairy Dust, as it is used in many excellent recipes and is fairly
rare to come by.

After you have climber the tree there will be a stone path leading off to the
west, take this path to reach the next area. If you continue up the branch
to where the giant fruit first falls you will find another treasure chest.

=====================
Whale Island - Drain:
=====================

Whale Island's Drain is, as I'm sure you could have guessed, packed with
water-based monsters. The exceptions ot this are the fairies near the entrance
and the Unicos near the exit. There are only 4 types of monsters in this area,
including the Fairies and Unicos, but the other two types (Tortas and Sealy)
are much more numerous. 

To navigate the Drain run west past two Gates, one that will spawn a Fairy and
one that will spawn a Tortas and a Fairy, and you will come to what seems like
a dead end. From here head north, there is a staircase there that is difficult
to see until you are running down it. At the bottom will be several drainpipes
that will shoot jets of water at you that will cause damage, so be wary. The
Sealy and Tortas monsters that will appear around here will also shoot these
water jets at you. Make your way east and then north again to get past them
and head north up another set of stairs.

Up here you will need to head west until you reach the end of the path and 
then head south, past more Sealy and Tortas spawns, and then west again once
the path presents itself. Here you will move onto a grassy area rather than
the stone pathways of the rest of the Drain, and you will find Unico monsters.
Head southwest past the first Unico spawn and head north into the door past
the next 2 Unicos that appear to enter the Tower of Birth.

While you are in the Drain you may want to defeat many Tortas monsters, as 
they are the only ones in the game that drop the Tortoise Shell item used in
several weapon and accessory recipes.

===========================================
Whale Island - Towers and Floating Chamber:
===========================================

You will enter the Tower of Birth from the Island's Drain and will have to 
make your way past several Fausts and Necros, both reaper-style monsters, in
order to get to the top of the tower and ascend to the Floating Chamber. The
Floating Chamber is a large, grassy area of tower tops connected by stone
walkways. Some of the tower tops will have open doorways, while the rest will
have rubble blocking them. All of the towers are essentially equal. They will
all have the same layout, but different groups of monsters.

The first thing you will want to do when you reach the Floating Chamber is run
directly north and descend into the Tower of Life. Avoid the High Orcs, High
Orc Archers, and Gigantes, or defeat them, at your leisure. At the bottom of
the tower on the west side will be a broken staircase with a rope coiled up
nearby. Lower the rope and you have now created a shortcut to the Tower of
Life from the Cave Surface earlier in the dungeon.

After you have created this chortcut you can get back to the Tower of Life
upon entering Whale Island rather than having to fight your way through the
entirety of the Island. Back on the Floating Chamber head over two bridges
to the south and then head west and back north. Eventually you will find a
staircase leading up to a locked and gated tower that cannot be entered yet.
To open this tower you will have to head back down the stairs and then run 
north over the bridge to the tower top where two Minotaur Kings and a High Orc
Archer will appear. Avoid them or defeat them and then descend into the Tower
of Glory.

In the Tower of Glory you will face off against several Blood Panthers and 
Hardes. On the second level of the tower, all the way to the east, you will
have to break several boxes (easily done with any weapon) and toggle the
switch that you will find behind them. After this, head back up to the 
Floating Chamber and head back to the previously locked tower. The gate will
still be down, but will open for you as you run up to it. Enter to find the
boss of Whale Island and the monster that the Whale has asked you to punish
for him.

                                |________|

Combat in Rune Factory is a simple system. There is a wide assortment of 
weapons to choose from (Swords, Great Swords, Spears, Hammers, Axes, Magic 
Rods, and even your farming tools) Attacking with weapons is simple, just 
face whatever it is you want to damage and press the "A" Button. Once you gain
better quality weapons and magic rods you will be able to use the Special
Attack command to utilize a special attack depending on the weapon type and
the special attack level.

=======
Swords:
=======

Swords are the most basic weapons and the easiest to use. There is no limit to
the number of times you swing your sword in succession, but the damage will be
less than other weapons as well as not knocking your opponent back and making
it stagger. The special attack for Swords is a spinning attack that will slice
surrounding enemies 2-3 times.

=============
Great Swords:
=============

Great Swords, or 2-Handed Swords, are, as I'm sure you could have guessed, 
bigger, longer versions of their 1-handed counterparts. Great Swords will only
combo up to 2 swings before forcing you to pause to start the next combo. It
is inadvisable to use the basic Great Sword attacks for the main source of 
your damage output. Instead Utilize the Great Swords' special attack, which is
another spinning slash that will hit farther than the 1-handed swords will.
The Great Sword special attack is easily the most useful method for dealing
a lot of damage quickly and it is because of this that Great Swords are my
personal weapon of choice. The Katana-style weapons are particularly useful
because of their tendency to create critical hits more often than other types
of weapons.

=======
Spears:
=======

Spears are useful if your style of fighting involves striking from a moderate
distance and a good amount of 1-on-1 battles. Spears will be able to strike
a good distance in front of you, but only in a straight line, rather than in
the slashing arc that swords and great swords utilize. The special attack for
spears is a series of thrusts straight ahead of you, but is usually more time-
consuming tahn it is damaging.

========
Hammers:
========

Battle Hammers work much like their tool counterparts. They are fairly slow to
weild, but do massive amounts of damage at once. Almost all battle hammers 
share the ability to stun or paralyze your opponents to varying degrees. I 
have personally not found hammer weapons to be particularly useful for the
reasonable fast-paced battles and quick timing that I use in my fighting style
but if you like that slow, heavy attack style, give Hammers a try. Try using
battle hammers when mining as well, you may be surprised by the results. The
special attack for battle hammers is just like the special attack with the
hammer tool. One powerful blow that will have a small area of damage, rather
than forcing you to smack some unsuspecting monster on the forehead.

=====
Axes:
=====

Battle Axes are, like battle hammers, very similar to their tool counterparts.
Battle axes are used to deliver one mighty blow to opponents. I have never
found the slow, purely damage-causing axes to be particularly useful, since
they do the same thing that hammers do, only without the added stun effect. In
addition, the Axe special attack works like the hammer special attack, but the
damage will be caused i a line rather than in a small area around where the
head lands.

===========
Magic Rods:
===========

Magic Rods are the most curious addition to Ruen Factory's Wii installment. 
For anyone who has played the 2 RF games on the Nintendo DS will know that
magic in those games came in the form of books that had to be used to cast
spells. In those games, too, were Magic Rods, but the rods in thsoe games only
served to augment your character's magic abilities to make those spells do 
more damage. In Rune Factory Frontier there are no longer any spellbooks to
use for spellcasting. For this version the type of rod that you use determines
the type of magic you can cast. 

Each rod will possess a differing magic spell that can only be unleashed by 
using your special attack. The first rod in your arsenal will most likely be 
the Fire Rod, obtained by bringing Kanno a few items when he first moves into 
town. The Fire Rod will send a fireball launching straight ahead of you which 
will cause a small explosion when it makes contact with a monster. The 
explosion actually hits the monster several times, however, making the Fire 
Rod a more powerful weapon than it first appears to be.

                               | Storyline |                    [STY]
                               |___________|

The storyline for Rune Factory Frontier consists mainly of Raguna attempting
to prevent the gigantic floating island from falling from the sky and utterly
decimating the town of Trampoli. I have attempted to keep this walkthrough as
spoiler-free as possible, but there are still spoilers ahead. Bear this in 
mind and do not say I didn't warn you.

================
Getting Started:
================

The story starts when Raguna enters the town of Trampoli in search of a girl 
who walked away from the town where he was living previously. He is exhausted
and heads to the local church to beg for a place to sleep for the night, where
the nice nun named Stella graciously agrees. The following morning, the girl
Raguna has been looking for simpy walks right into the church. After a semi-
comical exchange between Raguna and Mist, she practically drags the poor man
off to show him the new farm that he doesn't recall actually agreeing to take
over.

After setting Raguna up with the basic farm tools Mist heads to her house, 
which just happens to be right next door, and leaves Raguna to fend for 
himself in a town full of strangers.

================
Running Errands:
================

After you get comfortable with your new farm and get your first set of Turnips
planted (Mist gives them to you) head back to the Church and talk with Stella,
who will give you an item that she asks that you deliver to Turner for her.

Turner is the town's Innkeeper and you will fidn him, logically enough, just
inside the Inn. The Inn is located in the Business District on the far west
side. When you enter the Inn you will get a scene where you will meet Eunice, 
Turner's daughter and one of the 12 bachelorettes of Trampoli. After that 
scene you can give the item to Turner, who will then ask you to go and give 
Ganesha a message from him.

Ganesha is the town's blacksmith and can be found in the Damascus Forge, which
is just north of the Inn, up a couple flights of stairs. Ganesha will be the
woman swinging a big, white hammer behind the counter. Give her Turner's 
message and she will ask you to  go and see Danny for her at the town's 
General Store.

The General Store is also in the business district, head south down the stairs
from the Forge and head east at the bottom to find the General Store. Walking
in here will initiate a meeting with Danny, the uncaring owner of said store.
Give him Ganesha's message and he will then send you to see Erik, another
local farmer.

Erik's Farm is located in the South District, which is south of the Business
District, and just west of your farm. There will be two houses in the South
District at this point, Kross's Farm to the north and Erik's Farm down to the
south. Head into Erik's house and talk with him to complete your little town
exploration quest. Now you can go around and meet the other townspeople that
were not included in the quest, including Kross, the introverted farmer and
carpenter who resides in the South District, Rita, Turner's wife who runs the
local tavern, Marco, Ganesha's son, and Rosetta, who will pick up anything you
ship from your farm every day at 5pm.

====================
Whale Island's Plea:
====================

Whale Island is the main focus of the story throughout Rune Factory Frontier.
To get to Whale Island you must water the small sprout that is growing near
the Clock Tower to grow it into an oversized stalk that will allow you to
climb up to the island floating in the sky above town.

Upon landing on the island Raguna will be "talked" to by the island itself, 
who requests that you find out why it is failing and save it from doing so. 
Examine the black monolith to get a message about the 12 maidens and then go
ahead and keep exploring the floating island.

Once you make your way onto the island's Fin head all the way south to find
a lighthouse that will not allow you to enter. Come back to this at night to
see a girl dressed in white watering some flowers by the nearby pond before
disappearing back into the lighthouse, which you still cannot enter. Take note
of the 3x3 patch of soil just outside the lighthouse, it will be important in
the upcoming story.

You are done with the story on Whale Island itself for now, head back to town 
and wait for Rosetta to open up her shop in town.

============================
Materia Store Grand Opening:
============================

About halfway throgh your first Spring Rosetta, the girl that comes everyday 
to pick up your shipped items, will open up a new General Store in town, right
next to Danny's. After a little while continued conversations with Rosetta 
during business hours will result in a conversation about Moondrop flowers.
Rosetta will say something about places with a lot of moonlight being very 
good for growing Moondrop flowers and Raguna will try to think of a place that
is high up that gets a lot of moonlight. After this take a bag of Moondrop 
seeds (yes, you have to buy them) and plant them in the 3x3 plot of soil that
I told you to make note of outside the lighthouse on Whale Island's Fin.

=============
Meeting Iris:
=============

Now head back to Whale Island Fin and plant those Moondrop seeds outside the
Lighthouse. Water them each day until they bloom (only 4 days) and then return
to the lighthouse after 6pm to get a scene where you will officially meet Iris
Blanche. 

Now that you have met Iris, your task now is to gain her friendship. You'll 
have to get her to 1 Friend Point (FP) in order to obtain your next objective.
If you run north from the Lighthouse past the wolves you will come across a
gate that is locked. Now that you have befriended Iris (she loves Tomato Juice
and likes flowers, so you can give her the Moondrop flowers you grew nearby)
you will be able to see a mysterious man leaving the lighthouse as you 
approach. You will see him walk through the locked gate to the north. 

Congratulations! Now you can head north through the formerly locked gate.

===========================================
A Tree with Runey Fruit and a Frozen Fight:
===========================================

Now that the gate is unlocked you can make your way farther along through the
floating island. Making your way through the Whale Island Flank and through to
the Whale Island Tree, where Raguna will stop to notice the gigantic gathering
of runes atop the large tree. Come back several days later and Raguna will
again marvel at the Giant Rune, but will ntoe that it has shrunk considerably 
since he last saw it. After this head back down to ground level and talk to 
Kanno about the Rune. 

After that you will need to head down to the 3rd level of the Snow Ruins. To 
get into the Snow Ruins you will have to clear both the Green Ruins and the
Lava Ruins. In order to do this, scroll up a bit to their devoted sections in
this FAQ to see how to work your way through them. Once you gain entrance to
the Snow Ruins you should get a scene where Raguna finds a black rune orb in
the first room that you enter.

After finding this dark rune make your way down to the third floor of the
dungeon and work your way to the room containing a Minotaur encased in a large
block of ice. Behind the frozen Minotaur is a large, locked door. As you 
approach the door Mist and Candy will show up and the door will mystically
open for Mist as she gets near it. Step on through and prepare for a fight.

Behind the door you will find a large room. Inside will be the mysterious man
who we saw leaving the Lighthouse after befriending Iris Blanche. His name is
Gelwein and with him you will find Iris Noire. Gelwein has been manipulating
Iris for a while, forcing her to gather runes in his underground lab for his
own twisted research, and now he forces her to eliminate Raguna.

To defeat her simply avoid her magic attacks while damaging the four computer
modules that are along the wall of the room. When the last module blows you 
will be treated to some more conversation along with Raguna being knocked out
by Gelwein and waking up the following day in his house surrounded by Lara,
Iris Noire, and Kanno, who explain what happened and what happens next.

=========================
Research and Revelations:
=========================

After your battle with Iris Noire you can head to Whale Island Fin at any time
to visit both versions of Iris. Three days after you wake up talk to Kanno
again to learn more about Gelwein. The day after this head to the Graveyard
near the church around noon to find Candy standing at the mouth of a rather 
large hole in the ground and is worrying greatly that Marco went down into
said hole to retrieve her doll, but hasn't returned for a long time. Head
down into the hole to find yourself in the 3rd floor of the Snow Ruins. Break
the ice barrier blocking Marco off with either a fire-aligned weapon or your
hammer, pick up the doll that he drops on his way out, and continue to the
west.

Through the door to the west is the room where you fought Iris Noire, and you
will find Gelwein in there awainting Raguna with Mist trapped in an odd limbo
gathering runes faster than Iris ever could. After repelling Raguna's advance
Gelwein takes Mist and retreats to his stronghold, but leaves behind a book 
called the Grimoire of Time. You can now explore the rest of the Snow Ruins 
freely, although they no longer bear any relevance to the storyline, so to
learn more about them, scroll up a bit to its section above. For now, take the
Grimoire to Kanno to have him analyze it for a while.

=======================
Fixing the Clock Tower:
=======================

Five days after giving Kanno the Grimoire talk to him again to have him give 
you 12 Crystal Seeds, once for each maiden in the town of Trampoli. Now, since
Mist is supposed to be one of the 12 bachelorettes, we have one potential
problem on our hands. Luckily, there happens to be 2 Iris's in town for the
moment, so give them each a seed and be on your way. Three days after 
dispersing the seeds, go and collect them from the 12 maidens and bring them 
back to the Clock Tower and place them on the pedestal in the room that is
located straight ahead when you enter the Clock Tower. You might have noticed
while you were collecting the Crystal Flowers that each person gave you a
different zodiac sign, except for Iris Blanche and iris Noire, who both gave
you a Gemini Flower. This will be problematic in a moment, but go ahead and
place them on the pedestal all the same.

After placing all 12 plants there is still one piece missing. To remedy this
head to Mist's house and grab the plant that she has been growing in the pot
in front of her house and bring it back to the Clock Tower to join its 
brethren and open a portal where a nasty fight awaits.

=============================
One Last Fight Before You Go:
=============================

Enter the portal prepared for a fight. Bring Energy Drinks appropriate for the
amount of HP you have and enough RP restoratives to keep yourself going during
the fight itself. After you defeat the Beast you will have a small encounter
with Gelwein during which any damage done to him will be healed quickly by
Mist. Simply keep attacking him until you get a cutscene with all 12 of the 
town's maidens. After this Raguna will occasionally have his RP slightly 
restored by the maidens, but do not be afraid to knock back your Energy Drinks
and RP restoratives. Gelwein has a lot of health, so try to avoid his attacks
and his spells as much as possible while chipping away at his health. I
won this fight at level 65 without too much trouble, and only had to use 10 or
so Energy Drinks and RP restoratives. Once Gelwein finally succumbs to your
attacks sit back, relax, and enjoy the end of the storyline.

You will now have Mist back in town to continue and courting process you may
or may not have had in place with her before she got abducted. You can also
continue your farming and monster collecting efforts for as long as you so
wish, and you can even get the two Iris's to move to Trampoli by talking to
Rita. If you are still looking for a challenge, the bosses of the Snow Ruins 
and Whale Island still await you, and both are much tougher than Gelwein was.
The Giant chicken of the Green Ruins and the Slime Boss of the Lava Ruins
will also now be much tougher than they were and have a ton more HP. The Ice 
Snake and the Giant Squid will be the same as always until you defeat them, 
and any subsequent confrontations with them would result in them being much
stronger than the first time around.

Rune Factory Frontier, like any Harvest Moon game, features a number of
bachelorettes among whom the protagonist can choose from to become his bride.
RFF brings a total of 12 eligible ladies to the table, more than any previous
Harvest Moon installment. Most of them are new characters, although there are
a few returning faces from the first Rune Factory game on the DS. 

Below is a list of all twelve bachelorettes in the game, in alphabetical order,
along with the gifts they most like to receive, the gifts they hate receiving,
the time when you can eavsdrop on them in the bath, and when you can meet them
and marry them.

I would include a schedule for each maiden as well, but that alone takes up
enough space to warrant an FAQ of its own, which has already been made by a
dedicated gamer named Tagg. To find his FAQ copy and paste the following link

Thanks again to Tagg for dedicating so much time and effort into documenting
anything so detailed as the schedule of the characters in this game.

Anette is the local mail carrier for Trampoli. She personally set up the mail
boxes outside of everyone's homes, complete with names for everyone written
right on them. She is a very peppy girl who always seems to be in a good mood,
although she does have an issue with certain monsters chasing her around town
on occasion. She can only be found early in the morning (before 9am) during 
her delivery route, and during the day in Summer when she spends time at the
beach. On festival days she can be found loitering around the Business 
District near the map south of the Damascus Forge.

Once you get Anette to 7LP she will temporarily quit her mail delivery service
but will continue it once you get her up to 8 or 9 LP. While she is not 
delivering mail she will move into Mist's house temporarily.

Bianca is the local member of the Saint-Coquille family, and is a bit of a
spoiled brat. No gift you give her will make her like you any more; she simply
wants someone to see her for who she is, not for her family's money. She is
always attended by her maid, Tabatha, who is also a marriage candidate, but 
who is covered later in this section. Due to the extreme heat where she lives
normally Bianca had moved to Trampoli only for the Summer, but read on to find
out how to get her to stay in Trampoli indefinitely.

Once you build the barn on your property head to Whale Island and progress 
through it until you get about halfway through Whale Island - Cave Depths and
a small elephant-looking monster will run around Raguna a couple times and 
retreat. Heading back to your barn will result in Raguna finding the monster
standing in the entrance. Do not worry about keeping it fed, however, as the
monster is part of the storyline and not part of your barn. on certain days
during the Summer (the 10, 11, 14, 26, or 27) head to Bianca's home and, upon
entering, the monster will run up to Bianca to day "hi." After freaking out
momentarily Bianca takes a shine to the little elephant and decides she wants
it for her own. Give her the monster and, come Autumn, she will decide that
she wants to stay in Trampoli so she can better care for Francoise, as she 
calls the elephant.

Eunice is the daughter of Turner and Rita, the local Inkeeper and Barkeep. She
is a chubby girl, which is rare to find in a bachelorette in a Harvest Moon
game. Once you get Eunice to 4 FP/LP she will decide to go on a diet. She will
be on said diet until you get through a couple of seasons and get her to 8 LP.
She likes anything sweet, but does have her preferences.

While Eunice is on her diet, be warned that she will not accept any sweets 
from you until she reaches her thin stage. You will just have to make do with
giving her flowers to raise her FP/LP until then.

                                 |______|

Iris is actually one girl in two parts. You meet the first part, Iris Blanche,
after growing Moondrop Flowers in the patch of soil outside the lighthouse
on Whale Island's Fin. The second part of this maiden, Iris Noire, will be met
in the third floor of the Snow Ruins. If you have Iris Blanche up to 4 LP 
before you get to the portion of the storyline where you must fight Iris
Noire you will be able to avoid the fight entirely.

Iris is especially difficult to court. In order to marry Iris you must first
complete the main storyline of the game and then you ust get both Iris Blanche
and Noire to 10 LP each. Their LP is easier to raise than most, since their
favorite gift is a low-level cooking recipe and only involves one ingredient
which can be grown in bulk in the summer. After that you must follow a series
of conversations that will require a bit of running around town, but then you
will recombine the two halves of Iris into one and marry her.

Lara is a nun under Stella's tutelage in the Church of Poli. She also doubles
as the town's medic and runs the clinic, which is attached to the church. She
appears after Raguna finds out that Mist is sick after talking with Stella. Go
and visit Mist while she is resting in bed and then continue on with your day.
When you wake up the following morning Raguna will collapse upon leaving his
house and Lara will happen across him. You will wake up in the Clinic with
Lara looking over you, and will then have Lara in town permanently, available
for you to woo to your heart's content.

Lara will eventually start having troubled dreams as you get her LP raised, 
and she will eventually find it difficult to sleep at all. At this point, all
you need to do is talk to Melody to learn how to make a Sleeping potion. Make
the Potion, give it to Lara, go to bed, and talk to her again the following
day.

Melody is the owner of the Laga Bath House, and is obsessed with coming up 
with new fragrances for her customers. You will meet Melody the first time
you decide to delve a little deep into Whale Island. Almost immediately upon
entering Whale Island - Cave Depths you will have a forced conversation with
Melody, who will give you your hammer and ask you to break the large rock that
is sittign in front of her. One swing will bust up the rock and free a hot
spring to flow right down to the Business District where Melody will set up
her bath house by the time you return to town.

As you get going with Melody's LP she will ask you to investigate why the
source of her hot spring has slowed down. Head to the spot where you first met
Melody on Whale Island to find a giant monster sitting in the way of the 
previously flowing spring water. Talk with the giant and he will demand that 
you bring him Ice Cream before he will move. Head back down to town and make
the Ice Cream in your Kitchen with 1 Milk and 1 Egg with no utensils. It is a
level 20 recipe, so you are able to make it even if you have never cooked 
anything else before in the game. If you do not have a monster that gives milk
and eggs you can buy each from Rita at night while she is running the Tavern.
Bring the Ice Cream back to the Giant who will then move out of the way, 
opening the spring back up for Melody, who will remodel the Bath House into
an outdoor hot spring.

Be sure to talk to Roland, the odd man with the red cape and the cat on his 
shoulder, after each time you take a bath, you will need to have him with at
least 1 FP in order to get the event required to marry Melody, which will
happen when Raguna enters the bath house ocne Melody's LP is high enough.

                                 |______|

Mist is the main storyline maiden and is the only bachelorette that you can
have a continuous rapport with from the very outset of the game. She is a bit
of an airhead whose mind goes through channels that normal people can only
guess at. In order to complete her marriage requirements you will have to 
complete the main storyline for the game, since the storyline of the game
consists of mist getting kidnapped at one point and must be rescued by Raguna
before she can be properly married. Mist is also best friends with Rosetta, 
and the two have known each other since they were children.

In order to marry Mist you will have to complete the main storyline of the 
game, and then talk with Mist when she has 10 LP and is standing outside the
Library, which only happens on Tuesday afteroons. After speaking with her, 
talk to Kanno and then give Mist 2 gifts, what they are does not matter. After
that she will talk about a special flower, the seed for which will be found
just outside the boos door at any dungeon you choose. grab it and plant it, 
and 18 days later you will have Mist's special flower ready to be plucked. An
event will result, and after that wait 3 days and go to the clock tower to 
finish the event. Now Mist is ready to be married.

Rosetta is Mist's oldest friend in Trampoli and is also the person who comes
every day at 5pm to collect anything you have placed in the shipping bin and
will deposit the equivalent in gold in your account. About halfway through the
first Spring in the game she will open the Materia store in the Business 
District, much to Danny's chagrin. 

As you go along courting Rosetta, eventually she will have to leave Trampoli
for a while, bu she comes back to visit for festivals and on Holidays. Talk
to her a few times while you can and she will mention her situation worsening.
After this talk to Lara to learn how to make Energy Drink X (or just go make
one if you have the right recipe book). Give Rosetta an Energy Drink X and a
few days later she will return to her Materia shop, where you can find her
again for her normal hours.

Selphy is the person who runs the Rune Archives, the town's library and book
store. She will sell you recipe books for all of your kitchen, forge, and
pharmaceutical needs. Selphy absolutely loves books, to the point of often
forgetting to eat and not going outside for days at a time. In fact, when
you first meet Selphy she is collapsed outside your house and you bring her
to the Clinic to find out that she had simpyl forgoten to eat for about a week
before the incident.

In order to marry Selphy you will have to fight your way up to about level 30,
which should not be difficult, you will need to be at least that high to get
through the Lava Ruins. Once you get Selphy to about 8 LP she will lead you
somewhere where you will need to fight a monster, again, nothing too difficult
by the time you get someone, anyone to 8 or higher LP.

Tabatha is the maid to Bianca Saint-Coquille, one of the other maidens in
Trampoli. She will make her appearance at the same time as Bianca in the first
Summer. She will also leave in the Autumn if you do not complete the event 
with the elephant monster who resides temporarily in your barn. Tabatha is a
sweet girl with a soft spot for monsters, and will often stand outside your
barn during her off time.

As a part of Tabatha's courting process Minerva will move into town. When you
get Tabatha to 9 LP you will walk in on a conversation between Minerva and
Tabatha upon entering Bianca's mansion. The following day talk to Tabatha
again and she will send you on a gem hunt across Trampoli. There are 5 gems,
but only 4 of them are able to be found, they are at: Mist's house, Erik's
house, the Snowstyle Tavern, and the Clock Tower. Bring the 4 gems back to 
Tabatha to find out that the 5th gem has been stolen. This ends the marriage
requirements and you will be all set to marry Tabatha, Congratulation.

                                 |_______|

Uzuki comes to the village of Trampoli in search of her brother, who left her
village years ago. She will crash into you as you enter the Inn somewhere
around the middle of Spring and will stay in Trampoli after that. She is 
constantly accompanied by her guardian, Tsubute, who appears to be some sort
of large fly or roach who always floats over Uzuki's right shoulder.

When you get Uzuku to 2 LP she and Tsubute will have a serious argument and
Uzuki will be without her guardian for a few days, during which time she will
also not accept any gifts from you. After 3 days of this she will begin to get
worried abotu Tsubute, and you can then find him behind the Inn, after going
west from the middle landing in frotn of the Forge.

Once Uzuki gets to 7 LP Eunice and Kanno will begin noting that she has been
visiting he mountain lately. Head to the Observatory on any clear night to get
a scene with Uzuki. After that head to the 4th floor of the Lava Ruins to find
a locked door in the southwest corner of the floor. The door's keyhole appears
familiar to Raguna. Talk to Uzuki after that to receive the key. Head back to
the door in the Lava Ruins and open it to find a letter from Uzuki's brother.
Take the letter to Uzuki and then head to the Rune Archives and find a book
which will tell you how to collect Star Fragments. After that head to the 
Town Square on 7 sunny mornings to collect enough fragments and give them to
Uzuki to finish the event.

                           |_________________|

Once you have chosen the bachelorette of your moist dreams and you have 
patiently given her gifts and talked to her and jumpd through her hoops, all
the way until you get her to 10 LP, then you can start the marriage process.
In order to begin the process, you must speak with Stella after you get your
girl of choice to 10 LP to receive the recipe book "Happiness 101."

With this book in hand you can check the recipe with your Craft Table. You are
going to need a Baleen, a Blue Rose, a Green Grass, a Pink Cat, a Toy Herb, 
and a Moondrop. The Pink Cat, Moondrop, Toy Herb, and Green Grass should be
obvious for you to obtain at this point, so I won't even go into them here. 
The other two ingredients, however, are a bit trickier.

First is the Baleen. After you get the recipe book from Stella head on up to
Whale Island where you will receive a conversation with the Whale in which he
requests that you make hi feel closer to the sea. In order to do this you must
bring him a Tidal Cluster, which can be found on the Beach. It is possible to
have the Whale request the Cluster before you get the recipe book from Stella,
though giving the Cluster to the Whale before then results in a whole lot of
nothing. Don't worry, though, since a new Tidal Cluster will appear on the
Beach every day, so you can just get a new one when you are ready to get the
Baleen.

Now for the Blue Rose. To start the process you have to head to the
Damascus Forge and talk to Genesha to have her give you a White Rose. Take the
White Rose and put it through the Seed Maker (you did buy the Seed Maker from
Lute, right?) to get White Rose Seeds. Plant the seeds in any season except
Winter and water them every day until they bloom. Do not pick the roses when
they bloom! Leave them in the ground for a few days until they transform into
Blue Roses, which is what you need to make your Wedding Bouquet. 

Now take all of those ingredients to the Crafting Table and combine them into
your Bouquet and go ahead and give that to the bachelorette which you raised
to 10 LP. This will trigger the wedding event, so sit back and enjoy.

Crafting is the only way to make the most powerful weapons and armor in the
game, as well as the only way to upgrade your own tools and meals to help
fight better and recover your own HP and RP. There are 4 categories of crafts:
Forging, Accessories, Cooking, and Pharmacy. Forging is required to upgrade
your tools as well as make weapons and magic rods. Accessories is the skill
required to make defensive equipment. Cooking is used to turn your crops, 
fish, and other cooking ingredients into dishes that will grant you any number
of beneficial effects, including RP recovery and Attack and Defense boosts.
Pharmacy is the skill required to make potions and stat-enhancing items as 
well as status recovery items.

Crafting is a fairly simply process in Rune Factory Frontier. In order to
craft anything you must have the correct ingredients and be within 20 levels
of the recipe you are attempting to create. When you select the correct 
ingredients and initiate the process a bar will appear with 2-3 colors, 
depending on your skill level: a red portion, a blue portion, and a green
portion. Hitting the "A" Button in the red portion will result in a failure, 
and in the case of cooking will result in the loss of your ingredients. 
Pressing the "A" Button in the blue section will result in the successful
creation of the intended recipe, and hitting the "A" Button in the green
section will result in an expertly crafted recipe.

Another note on the combination of items for crafting purposes: The level of 
the item you create will be equal to the lowest level ingredient you place 
into it. So even if you use 2 level 10 items and a level 1 item in the recipe,
the end result will be a level 1 item. The exception is if you expertly make
the item, it will be 1 level higher than the lowest ingredient. Again, say
you have 2 level 10 items and 1 level 1 item and you craft the recipe with
expertise the result will be a level 2 item.

In the sections below I will tell you the easiest way to increase your skill
in each category, as well as a list of ingredients later on in this section.
This will get fairly long, as there are quite a lot of recipes for each 
section that will be listed in the order of their difficulty according to the
skill required to make them.

                               |_________|

Forging is the section of the crafting process which allows you to upgrade
your tools to make them more useful and efficient, as well as the place to
forge the greatest and most powerful weapons the game has to offer. The 
easiest way to skill up your forging skill is to collect a great amount of
Scrap Iron, the one thing you will get the most of while mining, and use that
to upgrade the quality of your tools. Any tool combined with 2 Scrap Irons 
will result in the creation of the exact same tool, but gives you the
opportunity to increase the level of said tool with expert crafts as well as
the ability to gain forging skill fairly quickly.

And now, for the meat of the Forging section: the recipes.

======
Tools:
======

A quick note on tools:

All tools come with recipes that can be used to increase the tool's level, 
making that tool use less RP while increasing its attack. The recipe for these
upgrades are the same for every tool. The recipe is: the tool with 2 pieces of
Scrap Iron. Performing this recipe with expertise will result in the tool
gaining a level, so long as the Scrap Iron you are using is not a lower level
than that of the tool. The Forging Skill level for the upgrade will be listed
in perentheses next to the level required to make the tool.

                  |_____________________________________|

What are Runeys? Runeys are the embodiment of rune spirits that are so copious
around the town. Runeys are also those little glowing orbs that can be seen
floating around in each area of the town. 

Runeys are responsible for the speed with which your crops will grow both in
the town's dungeons and in your field. Proper distribution of the Runeys from
town can be either an extreme hindrance to your farming efforts or a very
nice boost to yoru crop's growth. Having even one of the town's nine areas in
a state of prosperity or nearing extinction can have a profound impact on the
growth of your crops.

Runeys come in four different varieties: Grass, Tree, Rock, and Water. Runeys
follow a food chain for their reproduction. Water eats Rock, Rock eats Tree,
and Tree eats Grass. Grass Runeys will remain steady on their own, except for
being eaten by Tree Runeys. Water Runeys are not eaten by anything, and so
require the most attention when controlling their population.

                    |________________________________|

The Harvester is a tool that is new to Rune Factory Frontier. It's primary
function is to collect Runeys that are near Raguna in order to enable you to
either redistribute them to other areas or to take them to Candy to create
Rune Wonders. Candy's ability to communicate with the spirits around her 
enables her to do a number of things that no one else in town can. With a few
Runeys in hand Candy can do anything from controllign the weather to ensuring
that your field will have a few more bamboo shoots in it.

When you talk to Candy you will get 5 options: "I came to talk," "I brought
some Runeys," "What's a Rune Wonder?," "Where can Runeys be found?," and
"Never Mind." 

Obviously, "I came to talk" and "Never mind" are the options that do not
involve her powers or ability to talk with the spirits, and the "What's a
Rune Wonder?" option is an exlaination of what Candy does, leaving two options
available to actually do something. The "Where can Runeys be found?" option
will be discussed in the next section labeled "Distribution." The first time
you select the "What's a Rune Wonder?" option Candy will also give you the
Harvester for your own uses.

That brings us to Candy's true services: creating Rune Wonders. Selecting the 
"I brought some Runeys" option will bring up a list of thnigs that Candy can
do with Runeys that you have collected. Here is a list of all of the wonders
that Candy can perform and how many Runeys are required to perform each:

Create Rune Stones
     10 of any 1 Runey type will allow Candy to create a Rune Stone, which 
     can be used to open certain locked doors and for some Forging recipes.

Runey Distribution is the one thing that takes a good amount of care during 
your time playing Rune Factory Frontier. Controlling Runey distribution is the
most effective way to boost your crop growth, while neglecting Runeys will
result in your crops slowing painfully slowlt and even withering entirely.

Controlling Distribution is simple. All you have to do is use the Harvester
to collect Runeys from areas where you need to and simply take them out of
your inventory, where they will be placed upon collection, and release them
into areas where you wish them to be. Or you can just decide to store them in
the inventory until a later date. This may all seem well and good for now, but
you may be wondering why we do all of this, and why we bother with these 
annoying little buggers. Read on to find out.

                        ___________________________

                       | Prosperity and Extinction |            [PRT]
                       |___________________________|

An area enters a state of prosperity when there are at least 35 of all four
varieties of Runey in that area. Alternately, when there are less than 4 total
Runeys in an area it enters a state nearing extinction and becomes extinct 
when there are no Runeys left alive in an area. The main issue with getting an
area into a state of prosperity is keeping up with the Grass Runeys needed to
maintain their numbers. The easiest way to produce enough Grass Runeys to keep
up with the amount that are consumed you will need to create a Grass Factory.

A Grass Factory is an area where you can manipulate the Runeys to gain a good
number of Grass Runeys without worrying about them being consumed by the Tree
Runeys in that same area. In order to do this, you will need to use either
the Road to the Beach (Mist's Farm) or the South District. These are the best
two areas to do this since these are the two areas of Trampoli that are Grass-
affiliated. All of the areas in Trampoli, save for the Homestead, has an
alignment for one of the four Runey types. The Church District and the 
Mountain Path are Tree-aligned, the Beach and Lake Trampoli are both Water-
aligned, the Business District and the Public Square are Rock-aligned, and the
South District and Road to the Beach are Grass-aligned. 

When you have decided between either the South District or the Road to the 
Beach (I chose the Road to the Beach due to not requiring to go in and out of
buildings to get to all of the parts of the area) go ahead and remove all of
the Rock and Tree Runeys from that area. After that you will have to max out 
the Water Runeys of the area (make the total 60, don't worry, the game will 
not let you release more than the max amount of Runeys for an area) and make
the total of Grass Runeys set at 10. That's it.

Check the next day and you should have between 44-45 Water Runeys and between
28-29 Grass Runeys. Water Runeys should be plentiful around town, since they
do not get consumed by any other Runeys. So every day simply collect 18-19
Grass Runeys and add 15-16 Water Runeys in order to keep up on the Grass
consumption in other areas.

One quick side note on the Homestead. The Homestead has no affinity for any 
one type of Runey, and also the Runey food chain also does not apply here. All
four types of Runey will grow in the omestead without decreasing the numbers
of other types. Also, any square of 9 mature crops will produce 1 Grass Runey
in the Homestead. Meaning if you have 4 3x3 squares of Tomatoes, every 4 days
you will get 4 more Grass Runeys in the Homestead. Once you start getting more
and more areas into prosperity those same tomatoes will be maturing every 3
days, or every 2 days, or even every day once you get enough prosperous areas.
That means you are generating 4 new Grass Runeys every day from those 4 sets
of Tomato plants. Bear that in mind as the Homestead can be another source of
Grass Runeys other than your Grass Factory.

Now, in order to get an area into a state of Prosperity all you have to do
is make sure there are at least 35 of each Runey in that area. The best ratio
to use when starting an area in Prosperity is to have 35 Water, 40 Rock, 40
Tree, and 45 Grass, since Water Runeys will never decrease, they get the 
lowest number of starting Runeys. Once the conditions for Prosperity have been
met the number of Water, Rock, and Tree Runeys will increase drastically daily
while the number of Grass Runeys will decrease by 2 in the same time frame. 
What you need to do is take those Grass Runeys that you are mass producing
every day in your Grass Factory and store them until you get enough to start
a prosperous area. When you get enough Grass Runeys stored up collect some
Runeys from other areas so that you can reach that minimum of 35 of each type.

Again, once you get an area with 35 of each type of Runey you have to maintain
the Grass population in that area. The other 3 types will be up above 50 and
approaching 60 within a few days, so long as you keep up on the population.

Now, since you will have a population boom with your Water, Rock, and Tree
Runeys you can keep pulling them out of your prosperous area to build up the
population in another area while you gather Grass Runeys from your Grass Farm
to get that number up as well. Using this method you will be able to create
prosperous areas all around Trampoli one by one, and you should be able to get
all 8 areas into prosperity (except for your Grass Farm) within one season.

Monsters play an important role throughout your time in Rune Factory Frontier.
From hindering your path through a dungeon to working on your farm for you to
chasing mailmen around town, they are a constant in this game. 

This section will, ideally, explain all you need to know about the monsters 
that populate the dungeons and Whale Island and tell you what is needed to 
tame these monsters, befriend them, and put them to work on your farm. We will
start with the basics of the barn that Kross will build for you, along with
expansions of said barn and how to populate it.

                               ___________
                              |           |
                              | Your Barn |                     [BRN]
                              |___________|

The barn is not an initial part of the farm when you get it at the game's 
outset. You must go and have Kross build it for you. Kross can almost always 
be found on his farm in the South District, one area west of your farm. He is
the sullen, introverted man with long hair who will constantly till his field
during the day. He also doubles as the town's carpenter and is probable the
most skilled and speediest carpenter in history. Anythign you commission Kross
to do will be completed instantly, no waiting for days, not even an overnight
building period. Instant gratification, just what every American wants.

But I digress. To have Kross build a barn for you all you need to do is 
gather 10 pieces of lumber (use your Cheap Axe to chup up 10 sticks in your
field) and 1,000G, easily obtained from selling the Turnips that grow from the
first bag of seeds that Mist gives you. Once you have the necessary materials
go to see Kross and tell him you want to expand your house. Then choose "I
want to build a barn" and POOF! there's your barn. 

Initially your barn will only consist of 2 rooms, the entryway and one large
room beyond that is capable of holding up to 10 monsters that you have tamed
during your travels. After your barn is constructed initially there will be
6 more rooms that you can add to it with 2 additions from Kross (each addition
adds 2 rooms) meaning that with a fully expanded barn you can hold up to 70
tamed monsters. Good luck with that.

The first expansion of the barn will require 300 Lumber and 18,000G and will
add 2 new rooms onto your existing barn. The second expansion will require you
to fork up 800 Lumber and 50,000G for the last 4 rooms.

Befriending monsters is a simple process that involves the Monster Glove, a
brush that Kross will give you the first time you speak with him. The Glove
does no damage and requires no RP to use, but while you are wearing the Glove
you are vulnerable to monsters' attacks with no way to defend yourself or 
fight back. You will have to use the Glove several times to befriend a monster
and the tougher the monster is, the more time you will be required to use the
Glove on it. You will know when you have successfully use the Glove on a 
monster when several hearts appear above the monster's head.

The monsters that you choose to populate your barn can do any number of things
from giving you milk, honey, and other items, to gathering wood for you, to
watering your crops for you, to fighting by your side, and more. Read below
for the complete bestiary, complete with what each monster will do for you 
once befriended.

Some monsters, on the other hand, do not perform tasks for you, but will 
instead provide items for you, such as milk, eggs, seeds, etc. To collect 
these items from monsters the Harvester must be used on the correct monster.
Once an item is collected there will be a few days before the Harvester can
again be used on that same monster.

The following list of monsters is going to be compiled by dungeon and area,
rather than in alphabetical order. If you are looking for a monster that can
do a certain task for you, simply use the CTRL + F function of your web
browser and search for the task you seek.

All monsters listed here will be listed with their total HP, how many times
the Glove must be used to tame them, the items they drop (including the level
of the item and how often it drops), and the function that monster will
perform for you. Some functions are operational (woodcutting, crop harvest,
etc.), some are used as mounts, while others are item related. Any monster
that performs an item related task will be listed as having a Harvester Item
rather than a performable task.

Before getting to the list of monsters, I would like to thank Masterpingu1 for
all of his efforts in compiling the information used here.

                     | Monster Friendship and Work |
                     |_____________________________|

As previously mentioned, the monsters that you tame for your barn and farm can
be made to perform certain jobs for you. Those jobs are:

Water your Crops
Harvest Wild Plants on your farm
Harvest Crops
Rock Removal
Wood Cutting
Water your Crops
Mowing your grown Fodder
Mount
Collect Items

Listed next to each monster above is the task they will perform for you. If no
task is desingated, then that monster will only be a fighting companion for
you when you go out into dungeons. 

The amount of work that your monsters do for you depends entirely upon how 
much they happen to like you. Your monsters, just like the villagers around
town, have an FP bar. Getting a monster to 1 FP is simple, as it will only 
take a couple days after its capture, but getting any higher than that gets
tricky.

The easiest and most reliable way to raise a monster's friendship is to use 
the Pet Glove on it every day (aka Brush it). This will slowly but surely 
raise your monsters' FP, and with that rise, the quality of their work. Also,
bringing your monsters to different parts of town will also raise their FP.
Bringing any monster to the Public Square will get you a message saying that
"Monster XX is very happy" meaning that you just earned yourself an FP boost.
Bringing your monsters into a dungeon is another nice way to get a smaller 
boost to their FP. Lastly, ensure that you have enough Feed for your monsters,
because simply feeding them every day will also help to raise their FP ever so
slightly.

As your monsters' FP rises, so too does their work quality. For instance, the
monsters that water your farm will start out only watering a small portion of
it, but that area will increase steadily as their FP increases. Once that
monster reaches 10 FP it will be watering your entire field, leaving you to do
your own thing and not have to worry about your crops dying. This also applies
to how much grass gets cut down, how much wood gets cut, how many rocks get
busted, and how many plants get harvested. For anyoen who remembers the great
Harvest Moon: Back to nature for the PlayStation, this heralds back to the 
work that you could make the Harvest Sprites do on your farm for you.

Concerning monsters that produce items (milk, honey, eggs, seeds, random 
items) their FP will directly effect the quality of the product they give you.
A Buffamoo that has 7 FP will give you level 7 Milk every 3 days. A level 4 
Hornet will give you level 4 Honey every 3 days. As for monsters that give 
seeds and random items, the number of items they give you depends on their FP.
A Tricky Muck with 6 FP will give you 6 items every 3 days.

For anyone who fails at seeing paterns, monsters that give you items can be
retrieved every 3 days by using the Harvester on them.

As for monsters that can act as Mounts (Silver Wolves, Hunter Wolves, Elefun,
etc.) you can ride them once you take them out of your barn and they will 
allow you to move faster throughout the town and within dungeons. These 
monsters are excellent for running past groups of enemies if you are just 
trying to get down to the next level of a dungeon without worrying about the
enemies that tend to get in the way.

You can also fight while riding these monsters, but test the attacks out first
so that you can adjust your timing for their ability delays. Any damage that
you sustain while riding a monster is tranferred to the monster itself, 
leaving you healthy and untouched. It is usually more effective to get off of
your monster if you are planning to fight, however, as they will continue to
fight by your side while you are free to fight with weapons you are more 
familiar with. If your monster sustains damage, simply drink an Energy Drink
of some sort and the health that is restored to you is also restored to your
companion monster.

All of the monsters who do work for you on your farm follow the same schedule,
and only one monster can perform a task at a time. This means that only 1 
monster can gather wood, only 1 monster can water crops, only 1 monster can
break rocks, etc.

With that in mind, the course of the day will proceed as follows, with the
appropriate monster rushing out of your barn at the appropriate time to 
perform the task you have assigned it.

7am: Gather Edible Plants, including colored grasses, herbs, and mushrooms
11am: Harvest Crops
3pm: Water Crops
7pm: Chop Wood and Gather Lumber
10pm: Clear Rocks
1am: Cut full-grown grass for Feed

Fishing is something that has always been a part of the Harvest Moon games
as a way to make a little extra money aside from your crops, which were meant
as your main source of income. The same is probabl true for Rune Factory
Frontier, but there are several areas in the game that are fairly easily
found and can make fishing the most profitable method of earning money in the
game. 

Below will be a list of the fish that can be caught in each area where fishing
is possible, that is, anywhere where there is even the smallest bit of water.
These areas include: the river on the Homestead, the Lake, the Ocean, the pond
next to Mist's house, the Public Square, and Business District, and several
pools of water in dungeons.

I will not go very in depth here about where to catch which fish, since most
of the fish caught in the game will be useless, except for skilling up your
cooking skill, which is just as easily done through other venues. The only
three places I will go in depth for are listed below, and are at the bottom
of the three seasonal dungeons.

If you really feel the need to fish all over town, go right ahead, but I will
warn you now, there is not much worth it in most fishing areas.

                             _________________

                            |_________________|

Fishing in dungeon areas is actually the most profitable thing you can do with
your fishing rod. For the most part, fishing in the ponds that are 
conveniently placed for you to refill your watering can through the levels of
each dungeon will be no better than anywhere else outside. However, if you
go to the very bottom of each dungeon, to the level where the lair's boss
lurks (Green Ruins B4F, Lava Ruins B6F, Snow Ruins B7F) there will be pools of
water there which will contain the rarest and most expensive collection of
fish in the game. 

This, of course, will take some time and effort on your part to make yourself 
a high enough in level and tough enough to get to these deep sections, 
especially in the Snow Ruins. To reach the bottom of the Snow Ruins you will
need to be at least level 60 with a Shine Blade (Skill level 61 Forging) and
some hefty armor. The reward is well worth it, however, as you can easily make
more than 40,000G in a single day down there.

Also, in order to make this easier, you will have to be willing to fight the
boss at least once in order to earn the shortcut orb. The shortcut orb is 
something that will appear at the entrance to every dungeon ocne you have at
least attempted to defeat the boss of said dungeon. This orb, which will be
dark green and hard to miss, will take you directly to the door outside the
boss's chamber and conveniently next to the water in which you are looking to
fish in.

Because the fish caught in other areas of the dungeon will be the equivalent 
of anything caught outside, I will only list the fish that can be caught in 
the ponds at the bottom of each dungeon. The water near the boss on Whale
Island is, however, no different from any other dungeon fishign spots, so
this will only include the bottom floors of the Green, Lava, and Snow Ruins.

This section contains all of the information that I wanted to ensure wound up
in this FAQ, but could not find a section to fit it into. Simply put, all 
the following information has in common is that it has nothing in common.

                               _____________
                              |             |
                              | Income Tips |                   [ITP]
                              |_____________|

1) Befriend the right monsters.

     This can be a deal breaker in Rune Factory. If you befriend the correct
     set of monsters you can essentially create a farm that works itself,
     freeing you to pursue whatever endeavors you deem worthy, whether it be
     wooing the girl of your dreams, fishing the day away, creating new and
     more powerful weapons and armor, or defeating the dangerous monsters who
     threaten your town. Grab yourself a monster that can water crops, gather
     crops, cut grass, chop wood, and clear rocks and all you have to do is
     till the land and plant the seeds, then let the mosnters do the rest.

2) Use fishing to supplement your income.

     Fishing is a great way to earn money in Rune Factory. It is an even 
     better way to add on to the income you are generating on your farm. The
     easiest way to do this is to complete all of your work on your farm first
     and then use the rest of your RP (and HP if you so wish) fishing in a
     profitable spot (dungeon bottoms). 

3) Renewable crops are your friend.

     Crops that grow back after the initial harvest are the most profitable in
     almost all situations, especially once you start getting areas into
     prosperity with Runey control. The best example of this is the difference
     between Turnips and Cucumbers in Spring. Turnips are dirt cheap, 10G per
     bag, while Cucumbers are fairly costly at 680G per bag. Turnips grow in
     4 days, the shortest of any crop in the game, while Cucumbers grow in 10
     days with a 6 day regrowth period. With areas in prosperity the Cucumbers
     will grow faster and faster, yet the Turnips will remain on the same 4
     day growth and replant cycle. With 8 areas in prosperity those Cucumbers
     will mature in 4 days, just as fast as Turnips, and will regrow every 
     day, while you are waiting 4 days for moe Turnips. Get the picture?

                             | Gameplay Tips |                  [GTP]
                             |_______________|

1) Evasive manouevres are better than defense, but don't skimp on the armor.

     As always, not getting hit at all is preferrable to getting hit for 
     little damage, but soemtimes, even the best of us get hit by something.
     Always keep up on your Crafts skill and have the best accessories
     available for you to make so that those times when you just can't avoid
     the damage are not as bad as they could be, particularly against hard-
     hitting monsters like Trolls and Minotaurs.

2) Play to the weaknesses of your enemies.
 
     When deciding which armor and weapons to use for a particular task, keep
     in mind the strengths and weaknesses of the monsters you will be facing.
     The boss of the Green Ruins is Wind-affiliated, so any Earth-based
     weapons and Wind-resistant armor is going to be preferred. Almost all of
     the mosnters in the Lava Ruins are fire based, so brign fire-resistant
     accessories and water-based weapons. The monsters of the Snow Ruins are
     almost exclusively water aligned, so bring fire-based weaponry and
     water-resistant gear with you there. Whale Island contains a wide variety
     of enemies, so just load up on the defense there, or find equipment that
     will defend against all four elements simultaneously so as to prevent
     filling up your inventory with situational gear.

3) If you find a Little Crystal, don't you dare sell it!

     Little Crystals are required for all of the final tool upgrades and for
     all of the most powerful weapon recipes, so collect those little green
     stones every time you find one. Store them somewhere safe.

4) Don't upgrade your tools if you can't afford the RP consumption.

     Too often I have found people upgrade their Watering Can or their Sickle
     only to find that it is now burning through their RP too fast for them
     to complete their daily workload. If you are going to upgrade your tools,
     make sure you have the skill required or enough RP replenishing items to
     make up for the extra RP required to use the more powerful tools.

                       _____________________________

                      | My RP Replenishing Strategy |           [RPS]
                      |_____________________________|

Here I will outline the strategy I use to ensure that I have multiple RP
replenishing items on me at all times. This will require a small amount of 
effort as it does require you to get to the bottom of the Green Ruins, but if
you know your way there, it should not take very long at all.

This all begins when Cinnamon moves into town, which can be as early as Spring
7th. Once she is in town, talk with her while she is fishing (Mondays and 
Wednesdays 12-6 at the Homestead, Tuesdays 9-6 at Lake Poli, and Fridays 12-6
at the beach) and she will give you the Cheap Rod. You will also need to buy
the Handy Kitchen from Lute the Peddler on a Holiday.

Once you have the Cheap Rod and Kitchen make your way down to the bottom of 
the Green Ruins (B4F) and fish in the small pond that is located there. Be 
sure to open up the shortcut to the east of the pond, or fight the boss to 
enable the shortcut orb for easy return to this spot. At this pond fish until
you have no RP left and until you have very little HP left if you so desire.

While fishing here you will be catching mostly Dye Trout and Taimen, with the
occasional Lamp Squid and Lover Snapper thrown in there. The Taimen, Lamp
Squid and Lover Snappers are all going to be pure profit for a while, so go
ahead and sell those. The Dye Trout, however, are going to be taken to your 
kitchen and turned into Sashimi. Dye Sashimi is a level 15 recipe and so it
can be made even at level 1 Cooking. Even level 1 Dye Sashimi will replenish
over 100 RP, and most of the Dye Trout you will catch will be between levels
1 and 3, and those levels will only increase as you upgrade your Rod.

I have a healthy supply of level 7 Dye Sashimi currently and that replenishes
over 200 RP at a gulp, which is just under half of the RP bar. With the amount
of Dye Trout you are fishing up you can make the Sashimi, eat the Sashimi, and
have more RP to make more Sashimi and keep fishing for mroe Dye Trout to make
even more Sashimi.

On top of being an almost endless supply of RP, this is also an excellent way
to get your Cooking skill up fairly quickly and make a healthy chunk of cash
on the side.
