Rune Factory Frontier Relationships Guide

Like other Harvest Moon games, Rune Factory: Frontier has a dating sim component. If you intend your character to marry or be successful raising the love points of the eligible girls, knowing their likes and dislikes is key. However, this is not the only use for the relationship feature.

Raising relationship scores with some characters can lead to cutscenes that tell you more about the villagers and the town and can make your character’s life a little easier than it otherwise might have been. Sometimes it’s necessary, in order to open access to areas of the game and parts of the storyline. Most of the villagers have optional storylines you can unlock through friendship, and some of the festivals reward your friendship with them.

Here is what you need to know, listed with marriageable girls first, then the other villagers and visitors.

How to Raise Friendship and Love Points

The most-loved gift will get you the biggest boost in your friendship point score, the first time each day you give it. Gifts following that in the same day are still worth points, just not as many.

Talking to the character the first time in a day is also worth points. Don’t just talk to her once, though – increase your chances of finding out useful information or starting event chains by talking to characters repeatedly.

If you’re really in a rush you can talk to the character, give them a loved gift, then spam giving them small price follow-up gifts, like medicinal herbs.

Don’t forget birthdays! Give a loved gift on this day whenever you can.

Girls who like accessories will appreciate, and wear, your gifts. Be careful, though, there’s no reset for this. If you don’t like one, the best you can do to undo it is to give the girl something to wear in its place. You can gift them with swimsuits, as well, if they like you well enough. Selphy sells the recipe book.

If you’re focusing on Love Points, take note of the activity that gives you bonus love points with your chosen girl. Some are given the first time you do that activity each day, so if your choice has that type of bonus you’ll want to work that into your daily schedule.

Befriend Cinnamon. When you get the constellation viewing chain started with her, each new one you find gives you a love point boost with the corresponding girl.

Everybody loves a winner. Win festivals for boosts to fp and lp. If it’s a gift-giving festival, get bonus points for gifting to the eligible girls. All villagers like chatting with you on festival days.

Dating, Marriage, and Family

When you have a girl at 8+ LP, you can ask her out. For the following girls, however, there are additional requirements: for Mist, the storyline must be complete; the Irises must live in town; Anette’s chain of events must be concluded; Uzuki must not be feuding with Tsubute.

Each season has a specific date day: 13th of Spring, 19th of Summer, 19th of Autumn, 24th of Winter. Don’t stand her up, and don’t be late.

To Marry, you need:

– the bedroom house upgrade from Kross

– the bigger bed from Lute

-10 LP with your chosen girl

– to have completed the love events with your chosen girl

– a wedding bouquet, to propose.

To get the bouquet:

– need level 20 or higher in crafting

– need the recipe from Stella, which she will give after you the girl to 8 LP (possibly, depending on the girl? 10 LP)

– components: Moondrop Flower, Toy Herb Flower, Pink Cat Flower, Green Grass, Blue Rose. (To get Blue Rose: talk to Ganesha, and she’ll give you a white rose. Put it in the seed maker. Plant it. When it blooms, water it two more days, and it will turn blue.)

You can have a child, and choose the gender or leave it random. Lute will sell you a child’s bed and toy box. Children look the same regardless of your choice in wife.

There are three stages of growth before full grown: baby, crawling, and walking. At the crawling stage you can begin to raise fp with your child by talking. At the walking stage, you can gift. The child will follow you around town at this stage.

You can see the possible children in their different stages on this page.
