Friendship and Romance

Our heart rate system is similar to the one seen in the Harvest Moon games. Heart rates (differentiated by colour) help members keep track of character relations. Heart rates are split into two different categories - friendship and romance. These heart rates may be added to, changed, or adjusted as a member sees fit. The difference between our heart rate system and the ones in the games is that we use stars to represent friendship levels whilst we use hearts to represent romance levels!

The set-up below is only an example of how members typically tend to do heart rates:

At Summers Past, we leave character relationships to you. However, we ask that, despite the freedom with heart rates, you try to stick to the typical Harvest Moon timeline. This meaning that characters should not be in love after only two threads together. It can take a few seasons before characters attain higher heart rates!

You can choose to have your characters engaged whenever it fits best into your plot. Engagements have no time limit, and they don't always have to end in marriage. If your characters start to drift apart, feel free to call off the wedding.

If, and when, your characters decide to wed, you can choose between either a private or a public ceremony. A public ceremony will take place with the entire valley present, whereas a private ceremony will just be close friends and family of the couple. Whichever you choose, please make sure to coordinate with the staff so that they can help make your wedding as great as you deserve it to be!

Your character does not have to be married to have a child, however we do ask that you think carefully whether you wish to have your character go through a pregnancy. After all, it's a very big decision!

Pregnancies will last approximately three seasons (with one season equalling one trimester), with both the due date and gender of the child up to the discretion of the members involved.
