Events with Gotz

Harris visits Gotz during his breaks

Gotz’s Past

Date: Sundays, any season

Time: 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Visit Gotz’s house between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM on a Sunday. Inside, you’ll find Gotz and Harris talking about patrolling the mountains.

As the town’s local police officer, Harris feels that it’s his responsibility to patrol Mother’s Hill. Gotz insists on doing it, remembering how his family tragically lost their lives on the mountain. He thinks that keeping the mountain safe will make his family rest peacefully.

Gotz Quits

Date: Any date during summer

Time: Any

This event only happens when you are in Year 3 or more. When you visit Gotz, he will be in a sour mood. He says that he feels overworked and unappreciated by the townsfolk and he will refuse any work you ask of him.

In order to make him work again, you must raise his affection to the maximum. There is no way to know how much affection he has, so you just have to give him gifts until he says he’s ready to work again. The best gifts to raise his affection are apples, eggs, and honey.

Customers for Kai

Date: Any date, summer season only

Time: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Gotz is one of the customers who visits Kai’s restaurant during this event.

Visit Kai’s restaurant at Mineral Beach between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Kai tells you he doesn’t have any customers. Popuri shows up with a lot of customers, and now Kai is worried that it’ll be too difficult for him to cook for all of them. You agree to help Kai, and he thanks you for your help.

Note: The day will end when you trigger this event, so finish all your tasks before going to the beach.
