R♥mance in Grimm Forest
- 3 comments
What better to keep you from losing your sanity in these wretched woods than friendship and LOVE?
Though Grimm Forest focuses on what villagers do to survive during the days, what happens during the night also has a huge impact. You have several options on what to do, other than defending the village and getting at least a couple of hours of sleep (although these you should most certainly try to do).
Resting for longer or staying on guard duty both seem like options most would pick, but villagers will sometimes have to raise their Sanity and get over terrible effects (known as ‘Conditions’), such as being terrified, disoriented and depressed, among others. Spending some time around the fire, listening to the songs or tales of the other villagers is one way to raise your Sanity when you’re down. This way you can also share or learn in-game knowledge of the world (‘Folklore’).
Another way to raise your Sanity, which can have even greater effect, is to try romancing someone that you fancy. Being rejected will make you feel even worse and the night will be wasted, but if he or she responds with the same, you will spend some good time together and both will receive a good Sanity boost. By doing that there is also a chance for you to fall in love and the nights with your beloved will from then on revive your spirit and will to survive more than anything.
But life isn’t that simple – there are some implications to LOVE, which you surely already know. First, it is not always mutual, so be careful not to get broken-hearted; this can easily lead to depression. Additionally, some partners are not so trustworthy and might cheat on you. This is the lesser evil, though. What is much worse is to lose someone you love, so you should protect your fiancé at the cost of your life. It is a dangerous world.
Lastly, please consider your poor roommates that might be trying to rest – they might not feel so rejuvenated if you fool around with your lover too much!
