Welcome to Light of the Harvest Moon! We are a Harvest Moon based RP forum set on Castanet Island. We have dozens of canon characters from all the games to pick from, but you can always make your own character as well. Feel free to look around our forums and see what insanity the members have been up too.

Slowly, the snow has melted away and the green grass has been poking it's way up. Flowers have begun blooming again, the trees are leafing, and the fish are swimming. However, the entire island is still not at ease. With the continued search for the missing Harvest Sprites, some of the villagers run around frantic worried about what will happen to the island if they don't find all of the sprites. Also, some villagers have noticed that the sea seems...different. Not as gentle as it used to be. However, not that many villagers are worried about it now though. Is it an omen of things to come?

Friendship and romance is what makes Harvest Moon an interesting game, and we've brought the system into Castanet Valley ~ Light of the Harvest Moon. How does it work, you ask? Rather simple. We use the traditional ten heart rate system of the games to judge relationships. Each heart stands for something in either the romance or friendship department.

Now, the only rule we have with the hearts, is that you are not allowed more than TWO increases or decreases in hearts per season this is too prevent people climbing the ladder too quickly.

So let's say Billy and Susie and RPing together. They are both at a purple heart and they meet at the bar. They talk for a while, about Billy's farm and Susie's shop and Billy offers to buy Susie a drink, and she accepts. Now, Billy could be at a blue heart for both friendship and attraction, while Susie could be at a blue heart for friendship and a green heart for attraction.

Just remember, that is usually took about 2-3 seasons to get your wife/husband up to a red heart, so it should maybe take around 3-4 month at LoHM. Just use common sense with the heart rates and you'll be fine. If Authenti or myself think you are going a little too fast, we will send you a PM and ask that you go back one romance heart.

~Heart Events~
A handy little way to either find out what a character really thinks of you, or give the rates and extra boost. These can happen at any time and with whomever the member wishes. These are the only topics that are completely closed to everyone else but the two posting.

Here are some ideas as to what you can do for hearts events:
  • Make a topic and title it "Heart Event" and then post the normal ISO in the description. Then write out the dilemma your character is in. Don't plot these out, just let the member know in the cbox or through PM that there is a topic for them. On their last post in that topic, both members need to put if the heart rate fell or increased. It can only do so by one though.
  • Send a love letter to the person
  • Ask to meet them somewhere and confess your feelings
Obviously, these are only a few ideas, but feel free to PM me with more ideas for heart events!

If you have ANY questions, please don't be afraid to ask either. This is a rather rough system so we're still working out the kinks.

If you want to see an attempt at a Heart Event, feel free to attempt to read the very short, very lame, very Spanish, and very nauseating thread between Ivy and myself. Seriously, it's sick.
