The game opens with a brief introduction to the city of Arland , a city that is slowly being industrialized, but also a city that uses technology possessed by an ancient civilization.
We are then introduced to the main character, Rorolina Frixell Rorona, for short , who is forced to work for a master alchemist Astrid Zexis to pay off a debt her parents owe.
Over the next three years, she must pass 12 examinations to assess the ability of the workshop to do this. Gameplay Edit Gameplay in Atelier Rorona consists of three parts: working in the alchemy workshop, running errands in Arland, and adventuring outside of town. The primary feature of this game as with other installments of the series is time management.
The game takes place over a period of three years, which is broken up into twelve assignments. With the exception of two of these, each assignment lasts 90 days 89 plus an evaluation day. The remaining days are spent on two annual festivals, lasting 10 days each. Workshop Edit The workshop is where Rorona performs synthesis— creating new items from other ingredients.
To synthesize an item, you must first know the recipe for it, which is often contained in a book. Alchemy books are usually bought from stores in town, however some are given to you during the plot while others are found in various dungeons.
The basket, while limited in size, allows Rorona to carry items with her around town or to dungeons; the container always remains at the workshop. However, you also gain synthesis experience. Once you have gained enough experience your Alchemy level will increase, allowing you to make more complex items.
Arland Edit Rorona can travel around the town of Arland by means of a map with several locations in the city on it including shops, the town square, the palace, etc. In each location, Rorona can interact with various NPCs and playable characters.
Esty runs the front desk and gives out quests from the townspeople. Later in the game, additional requirements are added to the requests, which can allow Rorona to earn tickets that can be traded for items, as well. Sunrise Cafe carries cooking ingredients, which can be used to synthesize food. Beefy Weapon Shop carries various mineral ingredients and allows you to order weapons and armor for your characters.
Later, by triggering certain events, you can unlock a fourth shop carrying various magical items. As the game progresses, you will be able to use a feature called wholesale. Wholesale allows you to register items you have synthesized to shops, so that they can now sell these items.
This allows you to save time by purchasing ingredients or other items rather than having to synthesize them. Certain NPCs in town have the ability to request items from you similar to requests from the palace. However, instead of increasing trust, these increase your friendship with that NPC.
By increasing friendship you can unlock scenes with these characters, as well as gaining other benefits. Adventuring Edit Occasionally, it will be necessary to travel outside to gather ingredients or to complete certain other tasks. Traveling around to different locations adds a days to the calendar, both on the way there and the way back.
The earliest locations in the game take only a few days, but later locations can take up to 7 days to travel to. While exploring an area in a location, search points will appear on the map. These points contain synthesis items, which may be moved to the basket. These search points are marked with a blue star; however, search points marked with a gold star occasionally appear. These search points contain higher quality ingredients than found at normal search points.
Just as each new locations takes more time to travel to, each new location will contain stronger monsters to battle. However, battling monsters gives adventurer experience. During a characters turn, the player may attack, use a skill, defend, or attempt to escape.
Rorona who must always be in the party also has the option of using items from the basket. Additionally, guarding halves all damage taken from enemies. These mechanics make it necessary to think strategically about battles. If a character is reduced to 0 HP, they are knocked out, but can be revived with certain healing items.
If all characters are knocked out, rather than receiving a game over, the player is immediately returned to the workshop with days subtracted from their calendar.
Characters are revived at 1 HP. Completing Assignments Edit Each assignment is clearly spelled out at the beginning of the 90 day period, specifically stating what items can be turned in.
In addition to this, there may be additional requirements, such as turning in items of high quality or turning items with strong effects, etc.
As you report these items to Sterk, you will receive small golden stars which can be viewed in the status menu. You can receive 10 such stars, which determine how well you have completed each assignment.
If at any point during the game you fail to complete an assignment, you will receive a game over. Endings Edit Depending on how you count the game has four main endings with ten additional endings. The four main endings are obtained based on your performance in completing assignments and the level of trust you gained through job requests.
The additional endings are determined based on the completion of certain in game tasks. Among these additional endings are character specific endings, which require the activation of flag events. On completion of Year 3, an ending will play based on the requirements you cleared and chosen by priority.

Version: 1. It would be a good idea to read through any character requirements ahead of time or you will find yourself playing through the game multiple times. I will explain this more in the ending section of this guide. I will try and guide you through this overwhelming information in the least amount of playthroughs possible, but mistakes are possible and you do not have to follow my advice.
