The Rune Factory Club!

Welcome! This is a fan club for the video game series part of Harvest Moon. Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon. The game was Japan's celebration of Harvest Moon 10th anniversary. Though as for Rune Factory 2, the game didn't got the 'Bokujo no monogatari'(A Fantasy Harvest Moon) subtitle, but in USA, it was kept.

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (DS)
This game takes on the story of a man who has lost his memory, Raguna. Wandering days without food and water, he ends up in front of a mysterious lady named Mist, who gave him a house to live in, and a farm to work on, telling Raguna he might recover his memory working with the nature. Raguna has to live upon Kardia being threatened by the Sechs Empire, will he be able to stop the war?

Raguna is the main character of Rune Factory. After walking several days, starved and dehydrated, he collapses in front of the house of a landowner named Mist. He is suffering from amnesia, with no idea who he is or where he came from. Mist offers him a house on her farm if he promises to work on the land, and he accepts. Suddenly, a monster attacks Mist, and she gives Raguna a Watering Can and a Hoe so that he may fight the monster.


Rune Factory offers 11 potential wives. Ten of them can be married throughout the game, but Commander Lynette will only appear after finishing the main storyline. Ten heart points, friend points, and sometimes a special item are required for successful proposal.

Mist - Her carefree pace makes her seem undependable, but she's a reliable girl at heart.
Rosetta - Jean's daughter. She is a tomboy and will often tell her father what to do.
Felicity - Mayor Godwin's daughter, who is burdened with a silent sense of responsibility.
Sharron - A mysterious atmosphere keeps others from associating with this beauty. Everyone else is afraid and stays away, but Raguna doesn't worry about it and is willing to approach her.
Bianca - A rich and incredibly self-centered girl. In an especially outrageous display of selfishness, she wants her father to buy the village for her.
Tori - A shy girl with totally different dreams from her elder brother Zavier.
Tabatha - Having come from a foreign country in pursuit of knowledge, Tabatha currently works in Jasper's Mansion as Bianca's housemaid.
Melody - An optimistic girl and a magic-lover.
Mei - A mysterious woman who lives at the Inn and tends to keep to herself while spending most of her time alone up in the mountains or out on the beach.
Lara - A kind young nurse who simply cannot ignore an injured person.
Lynette - A former commander from the Sechs Empire who doesn't really understand the townsfolk.

Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (DS)
This game takes on the story of Kyle, a man who has become old enough to travel. Without any memory, he feels drawn by the village of Alvarna. Without nowhere else to go, Mana, and her father, Douglas, offer him a farm to work on, time passes, and there's a not-so-good future for Alvarna, And it depends on Kyle to save the Village he has settled on, with help of his son/daughter, Aaron/Aria, Alvarna might become safe again.

Kyle is the main character of Rune Factory 2, a man who has become old enough to travel. He had lost his memory, just like Raguna from the original Rune Factory.

Eligible Girls

Mana - Mana is the first character you will meet. Like Mist in the original Rune Factory, she will rescue you from the oblivion into which your amnesia has placed you and will 'lend' you an old farm.
Alicia - Alicia is the daughter of the local doctor, Natalie. She is determined to follow the more mystical 'alternative' path of becoming a fortuneteller.
Julia - Julia is the owner of the local Bathhouse, the Wisdom Bathhouse. She is obsessed with fashion and is the girl to whom others will defer in terms of the subject.
Rosalind - She is poetic by nature, warm-hearted and fun-loving. Rosalind is the pampered daughter of Herman, the patriarch of the influential de Sainte-Coquille family.
Dorothy - Dorothy is the daughter of the local Priest, Gordon. When you first meet her, she will speak only through her doll Fern.
Cecilia - Cecilia, like her suitor Jake is half-elf, half-human. She actually is a character from the original Rune Factory and now an adult, left her home in Kardia to work as a maid in Alvarna.
