I am not even going to try to avoid spoilers. So be forewarned.
This walkthrough is for the iPad version of the game which has quite a few differences from the desktop version.
Stardew Valley is very flexible, so as you play the game your experiences will not be the same as mine. Once I am past the game basics, I will not be going step by step, but only recapping the action.
If you are looking just to get a particular question about the game answered. You can find just about every thing you need to know in the Wiki.
The next morning, I remembered it was the day of the egg festival, so I didn’t bother to watch the fortune teller. It wouldn’t have any effect on the day’s activities. I didn’t have long at the farm to work before I would get the notice that the festival had started. After tending the garden and the cat, I tried to burn up as much energy as I could before I was to go into town.
No mater how little time you spend at the festival it is still way after dark when you get back to the farm. I went to bed hoping for a lucky day so I could head back to the mine for more loot.
No such luck. I decided that the day would be better spend above ground, as I headed out to do my chores.
Heading south out of my farm, to get away from the ping ping ping, of Robin’s hammer, I triggered a cute cut scene where Vincent and Jas are examining the sewer gate. Having seen that there were spring onions in the cut scene I headed that way when it was over, to get them.
Seeing that there was nothing in the peddler’s cart I needed, I head over to the river, to spend the rest of the daylight fishing. I know that it probably has no effect on the fishing mini game, but I find myself doing things that I would do in real life, like looking for the deeper water and casting my line near to rocks or logs.
Though her job was finished, Robin was running rapidly around my farm. This is one of the glitches I mentioned earlier. If I were to go over to her shop, she would be there conducting business. This apparition cannot be spoken to. It remind me that I was supposed to be doing something for Robin.
This was the first day of Salmonberry Season. It took me a few game-lifetimes to realize that Salmonberries are not something the game developer made up. They are real. See this article. Somehow I managed not to take any screenshots of the bushes filled with salmonberries. It is a bit of a mad dash to get as many berries as you can. Part of me wants to get them all, but the other part of me knows that they don’t sell for very much and since at this point in the game there is only one berry per bush, it really isn’t worth the effort.
The first time I tried to take Robin’s ax to her, she was in the kitchen of her house. When I tried to approach her, she ran very quickly into her room, where I couldn’t follow because I am not that good friends with her. That wasn’t normal, it was more of the glitching.
The next day was a neutral luck day, so I spent it foraging and chopping down trees. salmonberries are not worth much, but you can keep eating them while you work. I was able to cut down all the trees south of the river by eating a constant stream of berries. Nothing much interesting happened. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the foraging and fishing, it just doesn’t add anything to the blog. I did manage to finally give Robin her ax and get my reward.
The next day was another day of the Salmonberry season, so I skipped the fortune teller. I had enough wood from the day before to rebuild that bridge at the beach, so I headed that way gathering what berries came my way. I decided that it would be a good idea to gather the berries to eat in the mine to supplement my field snacks.
After one more day of picking Salmonberries, the season was over. I just wasn’t catching a break on lucky days, so I head to the mine despite the luck forecasts. I started on level 15 and worked my way down to 19. It was already 5:40 pm, and I wanted to make it to 20 or maybe 25 by the end of the day, when I came to a thick cluster of rocks below.
I went up to my storage case and left my old sword and my loot before returning to mining. It wasn’t long before I found myself on a monster floor. This was the first time in the game-life that I had seen the large slime monsters, which break apart in to several small ones when you hit them with a sword.
