Paulie was made fun of as a skinny kid when he was growing up in Portia. This pushed him to become enamored in building up his body to become the strongest man in the city. Not satisfied with that, he also opened a furniture shop, because that's the manly thing to do.

Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Paulie once a day can increase his relationship by 1 point, or 2 points with the Smooth Talk skill; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation without any relationship gain.

Paulie's dialogue may change every day and every season. Paulie may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels, including romantic involvement, also change Paulie's dialogue.

Desire head icon DesiresEdit

The following items are desires, or wishes, which are randomly assigned to one or two characters per week. The player is required to be at least at Associate level with Paulie for him to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Paulie progresses; the new desires are added to the existing ones but do not replace them. Some characters may desire an item that they do not normally like.

In the event that Paulie has a desire, gifting the wanted item will provide the higher tier points; otherwise, on non-desired events, the item gives the base point value. The birthday or festival day relationship bonus applies when gifting a desired item.

The Simple Desk will appear in Paulie's house if he receives it when desired.

If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Paulie during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Paulie will like. If asked before ordering, Paulie will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Paulie will just give little hints. In the event that Paulie does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Paulie gives. It is recommended to order each of those dishes from different courses, ex. ordering one Appetizer, Meat, Vegetable, Dessert, and Drink course each, rather than five Desserts.
