■ Combine Power to Overcome Challenges
Nelke, the governor of the village, is tasked with the job of “significantly developing the village.” Although still a novice, in order to confirm whether she can handle the work of a governor, Nelk will produce challenges as landmarks. By working together with various characters, aim to overcome those challenges.
The contents of challenges vary, from increasing the population of the village to building certain facilities. By overcoming these challenges, the village will significantly develop and the story will progress.
—Here, Nelke is placing a pharmacy. As the scale of the village increases, so will the facilities you can construct, and you can also build upgraded facilities. You can hire Fairy to work at upgraded facilities, which may lead to an increase in sales.
