Annual Needs

The annual needs for a villager are determined by their citizenship status. At the maximum level, every villager will have five essential needs, two convenience needs and one luxury needs. These will be chosen randomly from a pool. Illicit building will drain resources and make it harder for villagers to live. When resources are low, they’ll be given to nobles first, then artisans, then peasants. As new resources are only added to the pool when you have a supply, bread will not be available in your villages until the bakery is built. These needs are evaluated by the end of each calendar year. Therefore, if your village is running short on bread you have until December to remedy the situation before being penalized for a whole year. Essential needs can have a positive and negative impact. Conveniences and luxury needs have a positive outcome if they are met, but do not carry a penalty if the need is not met.

Even your villagers can feel the emotions that are generated by events in their own lives. Marriage, divorces, homelessness, parenthood and widowhood are possible triggers. Other possibilities include pop up events, interactions with other villages, and marriage. During the pop-up events you can use your mouse to select which feelings will be acquired by your villagers.

Town Services

These effects are also temporary, gained from illicit buildings, the Bards’ House, the School, and depending on the status of your Needs gauges. Managing your illicit buildings is a balancing act, and you will have to find the sweet spot for your village. When your needs gauges are very low your villagers run the risk of getting some very nasty effects, but if you make it long enough they will wear off. Later in the game you can unlock buildings that will combat the results of the illicit buildings, but until you open them, they can be trick to manage.

Some of these overlap with the Feelings gained from life events, but I have listed them out here again so you can clearly see where each comes from.

Intro to Relationships

Your villagers’ relationships can enormously impact their skills, stats, and needs. This is the set of traits you can most control, but it’s also the most complex. You can use hearts to end relationships with effects you don’t want. Marriage relationships are set when two villagers marry each other. Mentorship relationships are NOT automatically set when you assign a child to become an apprentice. They may occur randomly, or you can have the child and adult meet.

Adult/child relationships work differently than relationships between peers. When a child meets an adult they are not apprenticed to; they will form a friendship or enmity based on their affinity. However, when a child meets and adult they are apprenticed to, they will form either a mentorship or an exploitation relationship. Mentorship is a great buff, but exploitation comes with significant penalties. If you want to form a mentorship it is best to apprentice a child to an adult who shares their hobbies, as this makes them much more likely to develop a mentorship when they meet.

The other types occur from random meetings (effected by their meeting chance), or when you have them spend time with each other. You can have a villager spend time with someone they don’t already have a relationship with by opening the villager pane at the bottom of the screen and dragging the one you want up to the spot.

Relationships offer two kinds of effects on your villagers. The first kind are the same changes to skills, stats, needs, and morale traits can give. The second kind apply only when the villager interacts with the other person in the relationship . This includes Production time (when working together) and Romantic affinity (when going on a date). Their relationship will also affect the ambiance when working together, impacting other villagers working in the same building.

Managing Relationships

All villagers have a level of affinity towards each other even before interacting, based on shared interests. If they share hobbies, they will have a positive affinity, and if they dislike each others’ hobbies they will have a negative association. This is not shown in the game (unless they go on a date or have an existing relationship), but you can still check their hobbies to predict it. Before having two villagers meet, make sure to also check if they have other traits that incline them to a certain kind of relationship, or you may wind up with unexpected results.

Once two villagers have established a relationship, that will change their affinity. However, shared interests still matter, especially for low-level relationships! Ensure to check carefully, as low level friends can still tend towards a negative relationship if they dislike each others’ hobbies or have other penalties towards friendly relationships. Their overall score for each other is listed at the top of the relationship window. That affinity is precisely to the other person in the relationship and does not affect a villager’s other relationships.

When two villagers interact, they may gain a feeling depending on their relationship (see Feeling section), or their relationship may change. Feelings are temporary traits, but can be a good way to boost a villager. Villagers who share a maxed-out relationship and strong affinity in that direction will likely get a feeling when interacting. So a couple who is Madly In Love and has a high affinity for a positive relationship is very likely to get a positive feeling when they interact. Likewise, Sworn Enemies with a high affinity for a negative relationship are very likely to get a negative feeling. If the villagers share a weak relationship and a contrasting affinity, such as Acquaintances with an affinity for a negative relationship, their relationship may end when they interact.
