|Cost (Big House Upgrade)
|Stamina and fatigue restoration (Winter only)
The fireplace is a decorative feature of your farmhouse in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. Although it has a little-known feature: it actually reduces fatigue every time you use it during the Winter.
It’s automatically added to the house when you get the Big House upgrade from Gotts, which costs 600 Lumber, 250 Material Stone, and 10,000 G.
Once it’s installed, all you need to do is place a single piece of Lumber into the fireplace. You can also use Branches (debris) if you’ve run out of Lumber.
Remember that you can only benefit from this if you start a fire during Winter. During other seasons, you’ll end up gaining more fatigue since you make the house more stuffy by lighting a fire.
Here are the fatigue buffs you get by lighting a fire in each season:
|-5 FAT (-2 FAT for additional lumber)
As an added bonus, you’ll get more fatigue points reduced every time you walk back into the farmhouse. In the Winter, you’ll get an extra -1 FAT each time you enter.
If the fireplace is on during Spring and Autumn, you’ll gain +1 FAT each time you reenter the house and +5 FAT in the Summer. During these seasons, it’s best to restore fatigue by using Huang’s Flower Vase or Caffeine instead.
Note: The fireplace will reset every morning, so make sure to add a new piece of Lumber every day during the cold winter season!
