Welcome to Gamezebo’s strategy guide for Little Folk of Faery.

The guide is organized into five sections:

  • MENUS (an explanation of the menu icons and what they do)
  • VILLAGERS (a run-down of the different types of villagers)
  • GENERAL TIPS
  • WALKTHROUGH (a guide to completing all of the main quests and secondary quests in the game)
  • COLLECTABLES (an explanation of the different collectables in the game and what bonuses they grant)

To skip immediately to any part of the guide, type Ctrl+F on your keyboard and type in the keyword you’d like to search for – for example, type "Hermit Faery" to search the document for the Hermit Faery quest.

MENUS

Active Quest

The part of the main quest that you’re working on will appear here.

Dog

Your dog, Ginger, is good at sniffing out collectibles. When you see the Dog icon blinking, click on it to be transported instantly to Ginger – usually there will be a collectible nearby.

Faery’s Advice

Click on the faery icon to receive valuable gameplay tips.

World Map

Click on the globe icon to see an overview of the entire map. Click anywhere on the map to travel to that location. Collectibles show up as specs of flickering light on the map. If you’re hunting for collectibles, a good strategy is to watch the world map for them to appear.

Tome of Lore

This book is divided into several sections:

Bestiary

When you meet a new creature in the game, its information gets recorded into the Bestiary. Visit the Bestiary to learn about each of them.

Quest Journal

This section keeps track of the quests you have discovered. It is divided into two pages: Main Quetss, and Secondary Quests. Not all secondary quests are mandatory to complete.

Tree of Knowledge

Here is where you go to spend the Enchantment Points you’ve accumulated. You can spend them in four areas:

Harvest: Increases the amount of food your villagers will harvest.

Movement: Increases your villagers’ movement speed and resistance to spirits.

Enchantment: Increases the amount of Enchantment points earned with each task.

Morale: Increases villagers’ ability to increase each other’s morale through chatting.

Collectables

Here you can see all of the special collectables you’ve found.

Village resources

This box tells you how many resources your village has.

The top symbol (Apple) = how much food you have gathered.

The middle symbol (Star) = how many Enchantment points you have to spend.

The bottom symbol (people) = how many villagers have returned to the village.

Villager statistics

These three icons show you the morale of your villagers; from left to right, it shows the number of Gleeful, Happy, and Sad villagers.

Click on this box to get more detailed descriptions of each villager in your tribe.

This box shows a picture of your villager, its name and type (i.e. Skwik, Pixie). Below the picture is hsi mood (either Gleeful, Happy or Sad). To the right are four symbols that show his skill level in each of the four categories (Nature, Exploration, Knowledge, and Music), and below that indicates the task he’s workign on at the moment, and what percentage of the task has been completed.

Visit the shop

Click on this icon to return to the antique shop when you unlock a new item that needs dusting off.

Adjust speed

Here you can adjust how quickly time goes by in the game.

Options and Exit

Click here for the Options menu, where you can adjust settings like volume and fullscreen.

Click on the Exit button to leave the game. Your progress will automatically be saved, but the game will continue to run even when you’ve shut it down.

 

VILLAGERS

There are four types of villagers, and each has a natural aptitude. It is possible to train villagers in other aptitudes as well, but it will take longer.

The three villagers you start with are random, and new villagers will appear in a random order each time you hold a banquet.

Dryad
Primary skill: Nature
Weak skill: Exploration

Gnome
Primary skill: Knowledge
Weak skill: Music

Leprechaun
Primary skill: Exploration
Weak skill: Nature

Pixie
Primary skill: Music
Weak skill: Knowledge

 

GENERAL TIPS

  • If a villager is just standing around, either drag it onto one of the learning nooks to practice its skills, or have it harvest food.
  • Sometimes you can drag more than one villager onto the same task to complete it more quickly. If you have reached the maximum number of villagers allowed for that task, the word MAX will appear above the heads of any additional villagers you try to use.
  • MAX might also appear above a villager’s head if you try to drag it onto a learning nook but it has already reached maximum capacity for that particular skill. Villagers can increase a skill up to a maximum of rank 4.
  • Use the Overhead Map to quickly and easily find collectibles. Collectibles show up as little sparkles of light on the overhead map. Click on the sparkle to travel directly to the collectible.
  • Villagers can be trained to a maximum of 4 in each skill level.
  • Click on anything that looks interesting – you might unlock a new quest.
  • If your villager becomes sad, there are two ways to boost its morale: drag it to the food basket for a meal, or drag it onto another villager to have a conversation.
  • The stronger a villager’s skill in Music is, the longer they’ll be able to distract a Wistful Spirit. Eventually, though, the villager will become sad and will flee unless you give them a morale boost. When you notice the character about to flee (the ghost-shaped meter above their heads will drain from green to orange to red to almost empty), quickly drag them away for a morale boost. It’s useful to have more than one musician on hand so you can quickly swap them.
  • The game keeps running even if you shut it down, but you don’t have to worry: unlike other simulation games, your villagers can’t die, get sick or starve if you’re not there to tend them.

Controls

To scroll around the map, click the screen and drag it in the opposite direction you want to travel. For example, to scroll right, hold down the left mouse button and move the mouse left. This takes a bit of getting used to. You can also scroll by using the four arrow keys.

Time

  • Drag the slider all the way to the right to go as quickly as possible.
  • You can pause time in the game by dragging the slider all the way to the left. However, the game will still keep running in this slowest mode even when you shut it off.

Throwing a banquet

  • Each time you throw a banquet, another villager will appear until all 12 villagers are back in the village.
  • Each subsequent banquet requires more food, and takes longer to prepare and perform.
  • You can see how much food is required to hold the banquet by dragging a character over the table.
  • You must drop 3 characters onto the table to start a banquet.
  • If you have 1 character left at the banquet table and drag it away before the banquet has finished being prepared, the banquet will be aborted and you’ll lose all the food you spent on it.

Mysterious Animal

  • Each villager has an animal companion. The type of animal that appears relates to which skill level category is the highest.
  • If you train a villager to level 4 in all four skills (Nature, Exploration, Knowledge, and Music), the villager will receive a special pet called the Chimera.

 

WALKTHROUGH

Getting Started

If this is your first time playing the game, we recommend you go through the brief tutorial at the beginning to get your bearings.

You start off with three villagers: a Gnome, a Pixie, and a Dryad. The first thing you should do is complete The Hermit Faery quest, which will allow the villagers to access a food source. (See how to complete The Hermit Faery quest in the Main Quests section of this walkthrough below.)

The second thing you should do is locate the four learning nooks so you can begin training your villagers’ skills. (See how to complete the Learning Nooks quest in the Secondary Quests section of this walkthrough below.)

Dryads have a natural aptitude for Nature, so drag your Dryad over to the pile of fruit in the upper right of the map to start harvesting food for your village and improving the Dryad’s nature skill at the same time. The Gnome should learn Knowledge at the Library of Learning, and the Pixie should practice his musical skills at the Theatre of Inspiration.

As soon as you have enough food, throw your first banquet so you can acquire the fourth type of villager: The Leprechaun. Leprechauns have a natural aptitude for Exploration, so drag him onto the Telescope to practice this skill.

Note: If you opt to complete the tutorial, it will walk you through some of these early steps automatically.

COLLECTIONS

  • There are four types of collectible objects in the game, which are listed below. They appear randomly, and show up on the overhead world map as little flashing specs of light.
  • When a collectible appears, drag a villager on top of it to have the villager pick up the collectible and take it to a safe place. The Runes of Faery are taken to the Faery Circle next to the Theatre of Inspiration, and the other three collectibles are taken to the Great Tree at the top of the map.
  • Do not interrupt a faery as it’s carrying a collectible back, or you’ll lose the collectible.
  • Sometimes a collectible will appear that you already have – a duplicate. When you pick up a symbol and the Book icon on the menu screen flashes, that means it’s new. If you pick up a symbol and don’t see the book flash, it’s a duplicate. You can either drag the character back to whatever it was doing beforehand and not waste time carrying the collectible back, or let the villager complete its task. Storing a collectible earns a very small Enchantment Points boots – about 5 points – so you can decide whether it’s worth collecting duplicate collectibles or not.
