Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Toby 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.

Toby's dialogue may change every day and every season. Toby may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels also change Toby'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 Toby for him to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Toby 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 Toby 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.

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.
