I would like to graciously thank you for all the Harvest Moon guides you have published over the Internet. These are a constant source of reference for me as they are so helpful, detailed and accurate. Many times when I have been 'stuck' in the game, with little options, I have turned to your guides for the solution and always found it. This email may not be necessary, but I wanted to express my gratitude. I appreciate that you must spend a lot of time and energy working on these guides to make them the high quality that they are. For this, myself and many other players in the gaming world, will be grateful.
In particular, I have found pleasure in reading the Harvest Moon DS Cooking 101 Guide. I enjoy being able to cook on the Harvest Moon game, making meals for my favourite girls in the Valley or for Events. This guide listed so many recipes that I was able to try out, to great success. When I first began playing the game, the Harvest Moon DS General Guide was very useful in providing an overview of practically every aspect of the game. Once I had read the guide, I was immediately able to begin playing straight away. For me, knowing what to do in a game and getting the most satisfying experience out of it is my aim. The guidance you have given was appreciated to achieve these aims. After fully understanding the game, I could really enjoy it and it has given me hours of entertainment.
I admire you tremendously for the hard work and energy you put into your guides, for the benefits of other players. It is also a generous commitment. Such concise guides, so accurate and detailed could be worth a lot of money. Yet you deliver these for free, to many players over the world. This is an unnecessary, but much appreciated, act of generosity in a world where courtesy has often been forgotten.
Once again, thank you.
Note from Freyashawk: I was deeply touched that a player took the time and effort to write this email. It makes all the difference to know that the work I do is appreciated by players and I would like to thank every one who has written to me simply to thank me for my efforts.
