Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk

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

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

After the player has successfully confessed how they feel to Tody, the player can schedule a romantic date with Tody.

Social Dine DineEdit

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