New Juice and Angora Rabbit Upgraders in Market

First, my heartfelt thanks to all who voted for Harvest Moon FDC in the last Farm Beauty Contest. The farm ranked 4th again because of your support.

The post giving all the tasks for the current time-restricted Mission can be found below this one.

Now to business...

New Upgraders
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

There are two new Upgraders in the Market.  In the Animal Department, you will find the Angora Rabbit Upgrader for 4000 Coins.  In the Machine Department, you will find a Juice Machine Upgrader for 3000 Coins.

Remember that the system has changed to allow Batch Production for any Machine or Animal on an Upgrader.  Originally this was not possible.

Extra Product Gadgets
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Note that there are two different Gadgets for each Upgrader that will yield extra product.  One costs RC and is found in the regular Market.  The other costs Red Mystrons and is found in the Red Mystron Shop.  You receive only 1 extra product when the Red Mystron Container is on the Upgrader but you do not have to pay RC for that gadget.

Upgraders 101
xxxxxxxxxxxx

Do you need to purchase and use the Upgraders that increasingly appear in the Market?  At this point in time, they have not been mandatory for any time-restricted Mission, unlike the Pet System, where the use of Pets to open a specific number of Chests has been added to task lists on occasion.

Upgraders basically were designed like the Bases for stackable items.  Rather than being Decorations, they are 'gadgets' with different effects when they are placed on the Upgrader.

Every Upgrader has its own list of Gadgets.  Some allow greater production of existing products but others allow creation of special new products.  Every Gadget is level-based which means that you have to have the Upgrader upgraded to the Level of the Gadget before you can place and use it on that Upgrader.

Upgrader Footprint
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In games, the size of any item is its 'Footprint'.  The Upgrader's size changes with each new level. This can create significant problems when you attempt to upgrade any Upgrader if you do not have sufficient space for the new size or Footprint.

Tool Menu
xxxxxxxxx

To see the Tool Menu of any Upgrader or Base, first choose the 'Move' tool from the Main Menu.  While the Upgrader is in 'Move' Mode, you will have access to the Upgrader Tool Menu.  The most significant Tools are the 'Search' Tool (displayed as a Magnifying Glass) and the Upgrade Tool (displayed as an Expansion icon in the form of a House on a green square with two arrows pointing to southwest and southeast).

While the Upgrader is in Move Mode, choose the Search Tool to see all possible Gadgets that can be placed on the Upgrader.  Each will have a designated position, similar to the Positions allocated to Stackable Decorations on any Base.

Gallery Registration of Gadgets and Themes
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Note that all Gadgets and Theme items can be registered in your Gallery and each has a specific Charm Point value, although Charm Points are no longer that important in Seaside except insofar as they boost Landscape Points when placed within the influence of a Path.

The following Gadgets are available for the new Upgraders:

Jam Machine Upgrader
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Another addition is the Jam Machine Upgrader.

All Upgraders are found in the Market in a tab marked upgrader.  The Jam Machine Upgrader is found in the Machine department and costs 3000 Coins.  Place it on your farm and then place your Jam Machine on it using the Jigsaw puzzle icon in the Move Tools Menu.  You then must satisfy the requirements to upgrade the Upgrader.

Upgraders are limited in their use.  You cannot use Batch Production on a Machine or Animal when it is placed on an Upgrader.  Extra Product Gadgets do not work with Goldfinger.  You can use OP to speed individual production by paying 10 OP for each but I always considered that a bit wasteful myself.

To upgrade it to Level 1:

  Cheese Master Level 3 Gadget.  You can now produce Bat Cheese, provided always that you have the Bat House!

Holstein Cow and Cheese Master Upgraders
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The original Upgraders released were for the Holstein Cow and the Cheese Maker.  You will find a  tab in the Animal Menu for Upgraders and the same in the Machines Menu.  The Cheese Maker Upgrader costs 2000 Coins and the Holstein Cow Upgrader costs 1000 Coins.

The Upgraders are similar to Bases.  You need to first choose the Move tool and then the jigsaw icon to place the proper item (Animal or Machine) on its Upgrader.

You can buy other items for your Upgrader.

For the Cow Upgrader, these are:

Super Milk Container: 35 RC
  This is a Level 2 item that will allow you to add and collect 2 more products

Warning about Upgraders
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx




The basic Upgrader takes more space on your Farm than the item it houses, whether it is the Holstein Cow or the Cheese Master.  Unfortunately, each progressive upgrade of an Upgrader is larger, requiring more space.  If you have no clear space on your farm and you upgrade an Upgrader, you may see the horrible situation shown in the photo above.

This is a photo of the Level Editor.  The game will force you into it when any situation arises where the items on your Farm do not all have a space to be placed.  You then will be forced to sell something before the Menu will close.  The easiest solution is to sell some plots and then move items about until you can place the Item that caused the problem.  In this case, as previously indicated, it was the upgrade of an upgrader that required more space than the original.

It is a very good idea to keep some vacant space on your farm always to avoid this situation.  Harvest Moon FDC and Rosewood Farms now are so overcrowded that I have experienced this nightmare situation on both farms.  Try to avoid it if you can!

Farm Renovation Quest and Paint Rollers Collections Mission

Welcome to my site!  You are more than welcome to copy the link to this post to your Facebook Group if you wish but please credit me for the information I work hard to provide.  If you find my site helpful, please do vote for Harvest Moon FDC in the Farm Beauty Contest.  There is a section about the current Contest, theme Decorations and how to obtain each and so on at the end of this post.

Note: There are new Pirate items for your Boat in the Boat Shop on the Island.  They do appear randomly like any other boat items, so be patient.  Prices and list given at the end of this post.


(Screenshot of Mouse Bride and Mouse Groom with Wedding Chairs A and B, given as Rewards for completing the first half of the time-restricted Quest as well as a Bishop in the form of St. Nikolaus who can perform the rites!)

A new time-restricted quest has been released in tandem with a Collections Mission.  The reward for completion of the Collections Mission is a White Mulberry Tree, the first new tree to be released in some time.  As the Reward is a Tree, you can opt out of the Collections Mission if you choose to do so to purchase it instead in the Market for 9 RC.

Premium Items:  You will need the new White Mulberry Tree, a Brazil Nut Tree, A Red Currant Bush and Macadamia Nut Tree, inter alia.  One task on the Island requires the Dehydrator.  To skip it will cost 30 RC, so if you are not in a position to pay 30 RC or to build a Dehydrator, you will not be able to complete the second half of the Quest at this time.  Remember that many of the time-restricted Quests now can be accessed from the Lighthouse at any time.  The Rewards for the Collection Set when completed after the expiration of the Quest will NOT include the Clam Friendship Flower but you should be able to collect all other Rewards, so do not despair.

Milk and Honey
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

N.B.  I have been playing this game for more than 4 years.  There was a time when I thought I never would use all my Milk or Honey or Cheddar Cheese, but recently, between the Quests, the Guests and the other activities and tasks required of us, my stock of every basic has dwindled.  I feel that low level farmers must be struggling to keep up with these demands.  Perhaps we should be sending Milk and Honey to every one on a regular basis again!

Neighbour Item Request
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

There is a request for 20 Painting Trays from Neighbours and you will be required to use the new Chat option for the request.  I asked for the item four times and received 20 within 5 minutes, a very different experience from previous attempts in the recent past.  The option appears to work now.

Collection Set
xxxxxcxxxxxx

The Collection Set this time consists of three different decorations.  You must register Wedding Chair A, Wedding Chair B and the Cat Painter in order to claim the rewards, including 1 Clam Friendship Flower, 88 Green Mystrons and 1 RC.

Note that Wedding Chair A and Wedding Chair B now appear in the Decorations section of the Market as well where each will cost 3 RC.  If you are looking for a BIG Wedding and need more than 6 Chairs for the guests, you will be happy to see that you can purchase as many as you please!  For many of us, however, space is at a premium on our farms and 6 Chairs will be more than sufficient.   Although the two different types of Wedding Chairs can be stacked on the finished Wedding Base, they cannot be cleaned.  They do have 4 Charm Points each, although Charm is only relevant now in terms of Landscape Points.

New Farm Wedding Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxcxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

One of the least understood aspects of Family Farm Seaside is the Farm Beauty Contest.  Farmers often do not use their own items to maximise the votes they receive daily from the four Characters. Before you think in terms of help from other farmers, please make certain that you have done everything possible to get the votes from the 4 Characters.

The Farm Beauty Contest is unlocked when you reach Level 30 now.  At that point, you will see a golden icon of a Trophy in the middle of the top of the screen.  You will be able to vote three times for a neighbour each day.

Remember that you need 200 Votes per day to obtain the Decoration as a Reward.  Start on the first day by organising your farm and you should be able to do it without any votes from others if you are diligent.

For maximum votes, you first need to balance your Farm.  Have 16 DIFFERENT Crops planted, have at least 12 DIFFERENT Animals, 12 DIFFERENT Machines and 12 DIFFERENT types of Trees on your Farm.  You may need 13 different types of Animals and Machines and Trees but players have reported maximum votes with only 12.  The numbers change from time to time.  What you should know is that Beehives and Butterfly Houses are considered Animals and each different type will count towards your total.   The Crops need not be mature to count.

Landscape Points took the place of Charm Points when the Guest House and Pet option were introduced to the game.  Even low level players should be able to place sufficient paths with Decorations to achieve maximum in terms of Landscape Points.  You do NOT need 5000 Landscape Points nor even 3000... you can obtain the maximum number of Votes for Landscape I believe with as low as 2300 Landscape Points.  This was true in the last contest.  I will confirm for this one, but with 3000 Landscape Points, you definitely will achieve maximum votes for 'beautiful paths'.  (24/24 from THREE Characters)

Note that in some cases, you need not register the Decoration in order for it to count towards your Theme votes.  It does have to be in your current snapshot, however, so make certain that your farm is designed for maximum votes BEFORE you take the photograph.

Some low level farmers have reported the following:

With 442 Landscape Points, you get 9/24.  With 775 Landscape Points, you get 13/24 votes for Landscape Points.  With 1169 Points, you get 17/24 votes for Landscape.  With 1500, you get 18/24.

Easy Theme Points:  Make certain that you purchase and register the three different pieces of Carpet in the Decorations section of the Market (east costs 1500 Coins), buy and register the Wedding Carpet for 1 RC and purchase and register the Wedding Chair for 12000 Coins BEFORE you take your initial photograph for the Contest.  If you really want the Avatar, buy the Bride Mouse for 9 extra votes per day from the Characters.  You will find her in the special sales offers.  Note that you will receive 3 Wedding Carpets when you complete the first half of the Quest sequence but if you wish to maximise your Theme immediately, you can purchase and register one from the Market.

Farmer Regatta Quest and Anchors Collection Mission and Farm Wedding Beauty Contest

Note:  Last updated on Friday, 12 May.  The unfinished Wedding Base as well as 8 of the first material needed for the Base is being given by Felicia in your Messages menu.  Place it and take a new Screenshot to have it counted as a Theme Decoration even though incomplete.  The game states that you should receive 2 Votes from each of the three Characters who value Theme for the Wedding Base.    The special sale offers currently include a Bride Mouse, a theme item in the current Farm Wedding Farm Beauty Contest. You will find a section about the current Farm Wedding Beauty Contest at the end of this post.

Note from Freyashawk:  Thanks to every one who supported Harvest Moon FDC, it ranked 4th in the last Farm Beauty Contest.  Many, many thanks to all who voted for this farm.  I am quite happy to share my work with every player but please, please do give Freyashawk credit if you use the information on this site in your Facebook Group or anywhere else.  I work hard and spend premium cash to log these quests quickly.

You will need a Hot Dog Machine to complete the Collection Set, which also includes a Butternut Squash Tree and the Seashell Chest Decoration that is the Reward for this Quest.  Completing it within the time period of the Quest will give you an additional reward in the form of a Clam Friendship Flower.

The reward for the Anchors Collection Mission is another Stove House Recipe in the form of the Spinach Lasagna Recipe.

Spinach Lasagna Recipe:  Requires 1 Pasta, 3 Buffalo Milk Cheese, 1 Spinach Salad and 7 Power. Menu states that it requires 20 minutes to cook but there are two separate Stars that can be activated for this Dish.  At 2800 Flavour Points, you will achieve a Bronze Star Spinach Lasagna and at 4200 Flavour Points, you achieve a Blue Star Spinach Lasagna.  If you put all ingredients in the Oven at the same time and set the timer for about 9 1/2 minutes, you can finish the dish with a Bronze Star.  I think 10 minutes would be the time if you could set the timer quickly, but I am very slow with that.   I was not able to make the Blue Star version by placing all ingredients together and setting the timer for 13 minutes, but it almost made it, so if you place the Pasta and Buffalo Milk Cheese in the Oven first, setting the timer for 2 minutes, then add the Spinach Salad and set the timer again for 13 minutes, you will have a Blue Star Spinach Lasagna.  The Spinach Salad will reach maximum flavour points at 13 minutes and 20 seconds, which means that is the point where it will burn, causing the dish to fail.  The other two ingredients can be cooked for a much longer period but you can achieve the superior dish (not that you need it for anything!) in the form of the Blue Star rating by cooking the Pasta and Buffalo Milk Cheese FIRST for a couple of minutes before adding the Spinach Salad and setting the timer again for 13 minutes.  (I really am not that fond of the Stove House personally.)

Premium Items Needed:

You will need fruits from a number of premium Trees.  The Butternut Squash Tree is needed both for the Collections Mission and for recipes included in tasks for the traditional Quest sequence.  Other trees are Golden Peach and Pecan.

New Farm Wedding Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxcxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

One of the least understood aspects of Family Farm Seaside is the Farm Beauty Contest.  Farmers often do not use their own items to maximise the votes they receive daily from the four Characters. Before you think in terms of help from other farmers, please make certain that you have done everything possible to get the votes from the 4 Characters.

The Farm Beauty Contest is unlocked when you reach Level 30 now.  At that point, you will see a golden icon of a Trophy in the middle of the top of the screen.  You will be able to vote three times for a neighbour each day.

Remember that you need 200 Votes per day to obtain the Decoration as a Reward.  Start on the first day by organising your farm and you should be able to do it without any votes from others if you are diligent.

THREE Characters)

Note that in some cases, you need not register the Decoration in order for it to count towards your Theme votes.  It does have to be in your current snapshot, however, so make certain that your farm is designed for maximum votes BEFORE you take the photograph.

Love Story Quest and Heart Envelopes Collections Mission

Friday, 28 April:  My heartfelt thanks to every one who voted for Harvest Moon FDC.  The farm placed 4th thanks to your support...  thanks to my wonderful Facebook group members who helped enormously!

N.B.  The third material needed for the special Eggs created in a Factory Merge now are being found in the special Cooking Bags you receive when you eat at a Neighbour's Cooking Stand.  They are the Easter Crown Deco and the Easter Bunny Deco.  You will need 15 of one of these to merge an Egg.

The current time-restricted Quest has as its subject the romance between Grandma Blair and Grandpa.  It is rather endearing.

It has come to my attention that there are people who are copying and pasting the work I do without giving any credit to the writer.  It takes quite a long time to write these posts.  I am happy to be of help to any one who plays the game, but please do give credit to Freyashawk if you are using the entire text in your Family Farm Group.  Thank you.




The Easter Egg Factory activity is tied to the first 8 Parts of the traditional 'Love Story' Quest sequence.  You will receive a pattern as a reward when you complete each part.  I have noted the patterns I received on Harvest Moon FDC but it is possible that the actual pattern you receive in each case is random.  After you complete the first eight parts of the traditional Quest sequence, you will receive a special Reward in the form of the Bee Wings Pet House Ears.  'They make a set with the little bee antennae we received previously.  No matching Base yet.

Please note that there are no item requests from Neighbours and there are only a few Island Tasks, one of which requires the Yogurt Machine.   The Yogurt Machine is a three-ingredient Machine on the Island and the two ingredients that never change are Honey and Goat Milk, both of which must be transported from your Seaside Farm.  Make certain that you have at least 20 Honey and 20 Goat Milk if you wish to make 20 Cranberry Yogurt for one of the last tasks in the traditional quest sequence. The final Reward is a Heart-Shaped Tree Decoration.

The Reward for the Collections Mission is a Parsley Pot, a Collectable.

You collect the following:

70 Pink Hearts from Pink Roses
50 Red Hearts from Wine
30 Orange Hearts from Mayonnaise
10 Blue Hearts from Gooseberry Bush

Premium Items Needed
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You will need a Gooseberry Bush for the Collections Mission, a Sakura Tree, a White Chocolate Tree.  As far as Fish are concerned, you will need 6 Butterfish for the Lemon Fish task.  Thanks to the new option to trade fish at the pier, you will be able to trade for these if you do not have them or catch them immediately.

You will need a Goat to produce Goat Milk.  This is the second timed Quest recently that has required a Goat, so it may be a good idea to buy one if you do not have one.  You can find them for sale randomly in the Green Mystrons shop but otherwise the price for a White Goat is 15 RC.  Note as well that the White Goat is included as one of the items in the Collection Set.  If you want to receive a Clam Friendship Flower, you need a White Goat as well as the Parsley Pot and Heart Shaped Tree Decoration.


Easter Egg Factory Activity
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You should have been given 3 Plain Eggs by Felicia last week.  You then should have been able to obtain random Paint to colour these Eggs.  The colours you could make were Purple, Green and Orange.  I made one of each.  Now, in the first half of the traditional Quest, you should receive Wave Patterns and Dot Patterns.  I received a total of 4 of each of these.  Usually, in Factory Merge activities, you cannot do anything until you have all the Materials.  The Eggs are different.  Once you have the Patterns, you can go to the Factory to merge the coloured Eggs with the Patterns.  I chose to make two Wave Patterned Eggs and 1 Dot Patterned Egg.  Just my personal preference.  At this point, the Eggs you make cannot be placed.  They remain Materials for a future Decoration and are not themselves completed Decorations.

Fish with the Bone Fishhook 8 times

A Day with Granny Quest, Stars Collections and Easter Farm Beauty Contest

There is a new time-limited traditonal Quest sequence in tandem with a Stars Collection Mission. Tips for the new Easter Greeting Farm Beauty Contest will be added in a section at the end of the post.  There is a little Q and A section at the end to direct players who are not familiar with the rules of the Farm Beauty Contest.

Note that because of some problems with updates, changes may have occurred with respect to tasks... will update as often as possible to reflect current tasks.  The two tasks that required items requested from Neighbours originally have changed.

The reward for the Collections Mission is a Stove House Recipe used in one of the tasks for Part 8 of the Quest Sequence.

Prepare the dish as follows:

Stove House - Aubergine Kebab Recipe (Need 30 seconds to cook this recipe)
This recipe is given as the reward for completing the Stars Collections Mission.
3 Beef (1 hour)
1 Eggplant (1 hour)
3 Tomato (5 minutes)
3 Onion (50 seconds)
6 Power
This recipe is simple: Place all ingredients in pan; tap cook and watch until bronze star (10 seconds remaining) or continue until all flavor points are gained, stopping just as time reaches zero seconds.
(Thanks to Kaye Webb, an administrator of our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group)

Here is the quest but here I wish to thank all of my wonderful Neighbours... I have been playing this game for four years and I have made some fabulous friends and neighbours.  Thanks to all in our group who have given their support as well!

To use this option, tap on the icon of the fish on a scale to the right of the actual pier.  You will see one tab for selling and one for buying.

If you have a fully upgraded Goldfinger tech, you can make Smoked Mackerel in your Smokehouse using the Tech even if you do not have any actual Mackerel in stock.  It should count for this task.

Finally, for the purposes of a task like this, you can 'Miss' a catch to bring the total to 8 if you are impatient to complete the task using your default of 7 attempts.

Easter Greeting Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

A new Farm Beauty contest has begun.  My first suggestion is not to let the game persuade you to make your application until you have organised your farm a little to maximise your Votes form the four Characters.  If you are a fairly low level or new player who has few Decorations, you may wish to consider buying the new special Decoration offered in the sales in the top right of your screen.  It is the Chicken Bunny and it is worth 3 Votes instead of the usual 1 from three of the four Characters.  Once you have registered it, it should give you 9 votes per day for Theme... there are other decorations worth more than 1 Vote but at the moment, this is the only one worth 3 Votes from 3 Characters.

The rules of the Contest appear to be the same as before. I will post more details as to how to get maximum Votes from all the four characters every day.  If you want the Reward Decoration from the Beauty Contest that requires a total of 4000 Votes, you can do it fairly easily by obtaining a total of 200 Votes from the Characters alone each day.  The Avatar at 6000 Points is more difficult.

Theme Item List
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This is a work in progress.  I intend to add information about decorations in Lucky Wheel and more details about acquisition of each item.

To view all theme items, tap on the icon of the Red Book on the right top side of the Beauty Contest Menu.  Many thanks to members of Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group and especially Kaye Webb and Amanda Nelson for making prices of Lucky Box theme decorations available quickly.

This contest has the following theme items:

Trees

White Chocolate Tree
  Price:
Dark Chocolate Tree

Decortions

Easter Picnic Base
  From past, can be purchased now in Market for 3000 Coins, but will be unfinished.  You can use RC to complete it instantly but if you place on your farm and take a new screenshot, it may count as a Theme item even if incomplete.  You now will find the Materials for the Easter Picnic Base in your Daily Specials Shop for 70 TC each.  As of Tuesday, 11 April, however, a player with one Base cannot buy Materials from the Daily Specials Menu for TC.  Option is greyed out.

Beauty Contest Q & A or 'What am I doing wrong?'
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Question: Over half of my farm has crops growing on it.  Why am I not getting the maximum from Darryl for Crops?
Answer:  You have to have 16 DIFFERENT types of Crops on your Farm at the tine when you take the screenshot.  Remember always that the Votes are based on the current photo of your farm!

Question:  I have 20 machines on my farm.  Why am I not getting the maximum from Dad for machines?
Answer:  Duplicates do not count.  If you have 2 Wine Makers, for example, only one Vote will be given for that Machine.  You need 12 different machines in the current photo of your Farm.

Question:  I have 18 Animals on my farm, but Felicia is not giving me 16/16 for Animals!
Answer:  Like the Crops and Machines, duplicates do NOT count.  Make certain you have 12 different types of Animals on your Farm and then take a new photograph for the Contest!  Note that the different Beehives and different Butterfly Houses each count as a different type of Animal.

Question:  When I look at the red book in the Contest Menu at all of the Theme Decorations, I know that many of them are on my Farm but they are not given the green chequemark there and I do not think they are being counted by the three Characters for Theme. Why is that?

Answer:  First of all, you need to register any Decoration in the Gallery before it will be recognised usually for the Contest.  Second of all, you need to take a new Screenshot for the Contest after you place any new or additional Theme item on your Farm.

Question:  How many Votes do I need each day to get the Theme Decoration in the Farm Beauty Contest Rewards Menu?

Answer:  You need a total of 200 Votes each day to get the Reward Decoration.  It is far better to organise your own farm to get this total from the four Characters than to try to rely on the Votes of Neighbours.  It is not that difficult to get 200 Votes each day.  First of all, plant 16 different types of Crops, then make certain you have as many different Trees as possible on your Farm.  (You may only need 12 different trees this time.) . Place as many different Machines as possible on your Farm.   (Again, you may need only 12 different machines, no duplicates.)  Place at least 12 different Animals on the Farm... remember that each type of Beehive and Butterfly House is considered to be a different Animal in this context.  Now, finally, look at the Theme Book in the red top corner of the Farm Beauty Contest Menu and see how many of those Decorations you have on your farm.  THEME DECORATIONS MUST BE REGISTERED IN ORDER TO COUNT!  Is your Landscape Point total over 2200?  Not certain what is required for this contest, but if you have 2350 Landscape Points, you definitely will receive the maximum votes for Landscape.  Finally, only AFTER you organise your farm for maximum votes should you take a NEW PHOTOGRAPH.

Harvest Moon FDC
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Please do request to join our Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk Group if you need neighbours or help with the game.  My farm is Harvest Moon FDC (Freyashawk de Conde), and if you use this site and wish to let me know you appreciate my work, I would be most grateful for your Votes in the Contest. This is a 'clean' site without advertising of any kind.  I don't get paid in any way to do the work. Apart from anything else, though, I feel that when Harvest Moon FDC ranks high in the Contest, it may direct more players to our groups and this site.  Thank you!
