The Brightest Star is a secondary mission.


A mission triggered by having a high friendship level with Dr.Xu.

There is a time limit of 7 days to complete the mission. However, despite the mission having 7 days to complete in the log, failing to appear for the date by 23:00 on that day will fail the mission.

Conduct of the missionEdit

Upon completing Dr. Xu's Uncomfortable Meeting event at 450 Friendship (4.5 Heart) with Dr. Xu, this mission becomes available from Phyllis.

  • Phyllis "What do to...oh well, I am starting to crave some Spaghetti with Hot Sauce though, oh what to do?"
    • I'll make you one!
    • What to do?
  • Choosing "I'll make you one!" option:
    • Phyllis "Hehe, well then, I'm looking forward to it."
  • Choosing "What do I do?" option:
    • Phyllis "You can make me one, right?"

Either option will begin Mission: The Brightest Star.

Gather Item Edit

Upon presenting Spaghetti with Hot Sauce to Phyllis:

  • Phyllis "Oh! You actually made it for me? I was just joking. Fine..."
  • Phyllis "Although I promised Dr. Xu to keep it a secret, I'll make an exception this time. Let's just say you should go check out Higgins' workshop. Maybe you'll find something interesting there."
  • Phyllis "By the way, your Spaghetti with Hot Sauce smells really nice. Dr. Xu would enjoy it as well."

Check around Higgins' house Edit

Approaching Higgins' house will start a scene where Dr. Xu is talking to Higgins:

  • Xu "That's all. The commission is now yours."
  • Higgins "I'll take it, thank you very much. The more the merrier."
  • Xu "About that, personally, I'd like you to make peace with PlayerName. PlayerName is one of us after all. We should not be divided becase(sic) of..."
  • Higgins "It is the way it is. I know what I'm doing. Time is money! Back to work."
  • Xu "Oh, okay. Thanks Higgins. I'm off."

  • Higgins "What is this? Did you just eavedrop(sic) on us?!"
  • Higgins "You're trying to take another commission from me! Over my dead body!"
  • Social spar Stamina -15

This begins a duel with Higgins.

  • Wining the duel:
    • Higgins "Dang it! Even though you won, I'm still not giving you the commission!"
      • What commission?
    • Higgins "The one we're fighting know, the deliver five fireworks to Dr. Xu in two days commission. We...are fighting about that, right?"
      • Huh? Not really, thank you.
    • Higgins "Wait, what?"
  • Losing the duel:
    • Higgins "Get away from me. You are disturbing me work."

Wait for notice. Edit

The following morning, Dr. Xu will be waiting outside the builder's house:

  • Xu "Oh hi... PlayerName, good morning!"
  • Xu "Yeah... It's really fine weather today. How do you feel?"
    • I feel great.
    • What's up?
  • Choosing "I feel very well." option:
    • Xu "Is that right? That's good."
  • Choosing either option:
  • Xu "Umm...If it's not too much trouble, I'd like to invite you to Amber Island Bridge at 20:00pm tomorrow night for an event."
    • Sure, sounds easy.
    • I'll pass. There are too many things on my plate right now.
  • Choosing "Sure, sounds easy." option:
    • Xu "Fantastic! Oh...I mean great, I'll see you there. You don't have to bring anything, just come."
