1. Don’t worry about getting things done right away
Fae Farm has a built in calendar. It tells you when character’s birthday is coming up and when the island is throwing a festival of some sort. And while these are a great time to grow your relationship with a particular character or get some rare items that are cosmetically pleasing, they aren’t important. In fact nothing important to the story is connected to the calendar and that’s important to know.
You could be ass deep in the story progress but then take a few days to just chill and work on crafting something. Take some time out and maybe mine to make things to activate the island’s teleporters. Just take a moment and chill, calm with the knowledge that the big stuff will wait.
