    I don't know if anyone has EVER talked about it. I only did a quick search about it so it's possible that I missed it.

    Anyway, so Emily mentioned her parents and I thought: "Yeah what about them?" They're out on around-the-globe-trip or something similar, but they never return. So I was thinking about somewhere on year 3 they make a sudden return with a little event, yknow, instead of a possible hole-eee-shet-they-died-when-they-were-riding-alpacas-on-a-mountain-oh-Joba-I'm-so-sorry scenario.

    Although I've only thought that their dad is this typical dad joker person who'll say something like (If you're married with either Emily or Haley at the time they come home): "I knew it, leave your kids at home when you're away and they'll either burn down the house or go and get married, typical!"

    So what's your take on their parents? Ever thought about how they are or something similar?

      Haha those dad jokes though. I actually never paid much mind to their parents, Emily tends to have that "motherly" feel to me already for some reason, but I wouldn't mind if they stopped in for like a visit because of a festival or something. I don't feel like they should come back and stay permanently like Kent though, maybe they go back out on another adventure and just stop in every other year or so? I don't think my farmer could handle dad jokes every day just to raise their heart levels up haha :rofl:.

          I agree. It'd be nice if Emily's and Haley's parents were to return home one year... doesn't even have to be the 3rd year, it could be the 5th year and could introduce some late-game interactivity of some kind.

              they're like... twenty five. And Emily literally mentions them in her dialogue.

                Buh? I'm over fifty, and my mom's still around. Marlon, the mayor, and Alex's grandparents are unlikely to have living parents, but everyone else could. I think it would be fun to have Maru's grandparents show up to visit, for example.

                    I in fact think their parents are adventurers and are out in an epic quest to save the world, those tend to take a while to complete.

                      I feel that their parents coming home should either be an event after you marry or after you complete some of the quests for the adventurers' guild wherein it turns out they are the ones that started the guild.

                        I really asked that myself, which kind of parents would miss their childs marriage. They got 3 days to prepare
                        that must be enough :D

                          I think maybe they are actually spies (from Gotoro or serve for Ferngill), or died in the war.

                          Emily is aware of it and keeping it from Haley, and pretend to be happy every day. Sad and touching story...

                          She is a very good older sister imao, most of my peers are only child (see one-child-policy), and I'd like to be such a sister (but my mom refuse to give me a half-sibling with her now husband, which also has a daughter with ex-wife)

                            it would be cool if their parents were the related to the wizard and unlocks some advanced sorcery
