Stardew Valley: Robin
As you may have noticed, Stardew Valley is not just a farm game. Becoming a villager, you become a member of the Stardew Valley community. If you have friends, they will give you gifts and share delicious recipes with you. You’ll also unlock various special scenes, which are triggered each time you reach a certain amount of hearts in your friendship scale. Generally, there is one thing that will help you become friends with almost everyone in Stardew Valley – this magic thing is giving gifts. Everybody likes gifts, in case you choose them carefully. If you choose a wrong gift, it will cause negative effect on your friendship. Birthday gifts are of particular importance, since they have eight times stronger impact on your friendship. Give a villager two gifts every week, plus another extra gift when it’s his or her birthday, and you’ll get a new friend for sure.
In this article, we will talk about Robin. She’s a carpenter, and she sells various items in her Carpenter’s Shop. The shop is open every day, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. On Tuesday and Friday, the shop closes earlier. Robin lives in her house on 24 Mountain Road. She has a husband Demetrius, and two kids – Sebastian and Maru. Sebastian is her son from previous marriage, which is proved by a couple books in her room. These books are about building your second marriage and becoming a step-father.
