■ Combine Power to Overcome Challenges

Nelke, the governor of the village, is tasked with the job of “significantly developing the village.” Although still a novice, in order to confirm whether she can handle the work of a governor, Nelk will produce challenges as landmarks. By working together with various characters, aim to overcome those challenges.

The contents of challenges vary, from increasing the population of the village to building certain facilities. By overcoming these challenges, the village will significantly develop and the story will progress.
