Events (Harvest Moon: Back to Nature)
From Harvest Moon | Rune Factory Wiki
A list detailing all the events between the villagers. For details on rival scenes and heart events, view the characters own page. These events include spoilers.
The Supsicious Man
On the second of Spring, Harris will drop by your house warning you of a suspicious man wandering the village. Just once he leaves, the man comes to rest on your farm. His name is Won. He came by the village and got lost. If you go to the square next, you'll find Harris patrolling. Talk to him, and he'll go to search for the man at your farm, but fails to come across him as Won has now come to the Square. Next, go to Gotz's house and the two will finally meet each other. All ends okay, as it turns out that Won is only a peddler.
Sometime in Spring, the mayor will come by your house and request for you to deliver an apple pie to Ellen for him, since he will be out of town and on business. Agree to do so. Go to the inn, receive the pie and give it to Ellen, and refuse her tip. Elli will come and give you another apple pie for your troubles.
Trigger: You have to somewhat be friends with May, and she should come by automatically
One day, exit your house and you will find May asking if she can help you with any chores on your farm. But Barley comes by and apologises for May's behaviour (Geez). You'll either have the option to take May to Ellen or Carter for Barley, to see if she could be taken care of from either of them. Both results in both May and Stu being cared for by Carter every day aside Thursday and Sunday.
Trigger: Year 1, 30th of Spring, walk into the section of town just outside your farm where the Blacksmith and Winery are. Popuri and May are standing around waiting to welcome Kai back to the village for the Summer. You eavesdrop on their conversation for a few lines; then the girls leave and Kai sees you and introduces himself.
May is Missing
Trigger: You need to somewhat be friends with Barley, they should come by sometime automatically
Barley will come by one morning and tell you that May is missing, and asks that you help look for her. A few people will be searching, such as Gotz and the mayor, in the mountain. If you talk to Barley, you'll find out that she was left here by her mother. At 6:00pm, go to the beach docks and you'll find the young girl remembering about her past. About how she came here to her grandpa's house by the boat. You can listen to her story, or take her home. Either way, she ends up at home with Barley. She'll get a little scolding, and Barley will thank you.
Harris' Love Sickness
Trigger: Somewhat be friends with Harris, and exit your house around after 6:00pm
Harris ask for you to listen to him, if you do so, you'll find out that he is in love with Aja--the daughter of the winery who no longer lives in the village. He wants to send her a letter, but can't find anything to write about and asks if anything has happened on the farm. You say nothing has happened, and he leaves disappointedly. Afterwards, go talk to Manna, and you'll tell her about Harris' 'Secret'. The next day, Harris comes by your house and apologises for being a nuisance last night. Zack comes by and delivers a letter to him, and to his surprise, it's from Aja! He thanks you, and leaves happily. Their spur of letters continues.
Trigger: A snowy Winter's Day, enter the Rose Square around noon
Cliff is exhaustedly walking around the Square, until he faints. You go to him automatically and collect a photo that he dropped. Then, you run into the Inn and warn Ann, Doug and Carter of what happened. He's brought to the Clinic, where the Doctor says that he'll be alright thanks to you for finding him. Exit the Clinic and go back to and give him the picture that dropped, where he'll explain to you his story. He didn't like his hometown, so he decided to move away... After some time had passed,
Trigger: Enter the Supermarket in year 2
As you walk in, you'll overhear Sasha and Jeff celebrating that his painting was selected in a supposed competition. They decide to do something in celebration. Exit the Supermarket, and go back in, and you'll find everyone coming to the store to repay their debts because they think the Supermarket is going to close because Jeff held a huge sale, when in fact it was only in celebration of his painting. Fortunately, though, he can now pay off all those debts!
Kai vs. the Guys
One Summer night at the Inn, you'll find people yelling at Kai about how he's a cad and flirts with all the girls. You can either stand up for him or be with the crowd (answer choices presented to you: "Kai is wrong," "Both guys are wrong," and "Don't know, don't care"). However! The English translation of the answer choices (at least in the U.S. version of the game) is kind of bad/ambiguous. Wouldn't you interpret "Both guys are wrong" to mean both Rick (the leader of the crowd) AND Kai? You might realize what the second choice means if you know Japanese and can imagine the answer choices translated from "Kai ga warui" (Kai is wrong), "Minna ga warui" (Everyone is wrong), and "Dou demo ii" (Don't know, don't care). At least, that's my take on it, not having played the Japanese version. So if you want to stand up for Kai, you'd better pick "Both guys are wrong" because that is most likely the choice referring to the crowd being wrong! (Not wanting to say anything against Kai, I picked "Don't know, don't care" before having thought all this through, which resulted in Kai getting mad and storming off upstairs...sob)
Flower of Happiness
In winter, speak to Ellen. She will tell you about a flower that only bloom when it snow. On a snowy day, go to the summit of Mother's Hill and you'll find a white flower bloom. Afterwards speak to Basil.
On a snowy day, pass through the woodcutterr's house from Poultry Farm. Gotz will be standing around in front of his house. When you pass him, he'll warn you not to go to the mountain because of the snow and incoming blizzard. Go up there anyway, and Gotz will save you. He'll then bring you to his house and tell you about his family that died in the blizzard. Note: the blizzard will not affect your farm whatsoever.
The Mayor's Favour
In Spring 16th 06.00 AM Thomas will coke to your farm to request 3 turnips to be delivered to his house on the 21st for the cooking festival next day. Go to the Mayor's house before 08.00 AM or after 05.00 PM. Do not hold the turnips when you delivered it. The Mayor will get it from your rucksack when you speak to him inside his house.
