Story (Harvest Moon: DS)
From Harvest Moon | Rune Factory Wiki
Welcome to Forget-Me-Not-Valley -- (100 years after Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life)
The game starts off with the harvest witch and goddess battling it out on the beach, they both counter attack each other and end up being equally powerful and both walk off angered.
Later on, the harvest witch is recalling what happened at the spring, when all of a sudden the sprites and goddess appear next to her, she is surprised and all of a sudden the harvest goddess gets turned to stone. The harvest witch tries to fix it but instead ends up sending her off to an unknown location. The sprites blame it all on her and she tries to bring her back but then instead manages to multiply all the sprites and spread them all around the world!
The sprites leave and you walk in, the harvest witch sees you and commissions you to help her out by finding 101 sprites, she starts you off by sending you to the sprite tree. Once there, you meet your first sprite, the abacus sprite, and after a small introduction the harvest witch sends you back home.
Now that you are home you have a chance to check out your tools and the controls but once you walk out the mayor will greet you at your door and introduce you to the game. Once he is done, he angers you and you try to attack him with your tools, but he keeps backing so you miss, in the end your dog runs up behinds it and you have a choice to help or not, if you chose not to the screen will fade into black and it will suddenly flash red before the credits start rolling.
