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.
