Over the course of several years, players will invest hard work into their farm while also taking on quests and exploring everything the world has to offer. NPCs can be found all over the map and can be worth talking to for both items as well as in-game relationships. Specific NPCs can also be married if the player chooses so, and the player's gender won't impact which NPCs can be married.
