Martha's Home

Toby's home

Toby is a child living in Portia. He is the young adventurous son of Martha. He has a knack both causing mischief and for getting himself into trouble.


The son of Martha, Toby has a brave and adventurous spirit. He's always trying to live up to his father's shadow, a region-famous adventurer. It is Toby's dream to one day explore the unknown regions beyond The Periphery.

Personal LifeEdit

Toby was born on Autumn of Day 28 and is the son of Martha. Toby is one of the few school children of Portia, known to cause trouble and has a tendency to show up late. His mother, Martha, worries that he might follow in his father's footsteps. When he grows older, Toby wants to explore unknown regions beyond the Peripheries.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Related CharactersEdit

When befriending Toby, his relationship network with other NPCs will also be affected, resulting in the player receiving favor points from those NPCs as well. Note: Arlo is not a part of Toby's relationship network.

Social Dine DineEdit

If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Toby during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Toby will like. If asked before ordering, Toby will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Toby will just give little hints. In the event that Toby does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Toby 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.

Social Relic Trade Relic TradeEdit

Toby occasionally uses the Relic Pieces Exchange board at the Museum to trade for relic pieces. Toby likes to look at particular completed relics, so after the player has donated such relics to the Museum or displayed them in their yard, Toby may come visit the Museum or the player's yard to view these relics. Such visits will earn the player relationship points each time, with the amount dependent upon the relic.
