The Events of 20 Winter in the 1st Year
At 6.00 a.m. on the morning of 20 Winter in the first year, Tim will come to your farm to tell you about a Robot Mole who has appeared in the Mine. He will urge you to see it for yourself, telling you that it sounds 'cool'.
Obviously, this is a hint to you to go to the Mine to experience your second robotic battle. As easy as the first, which was the battle against the Robot Crow, you should be able to defeat the Mole with no more than two strikes of the Hammer.
Once defeated, after the Event ends, you can re-enter the Mine immediately to find two new Chambers in the form of Chamber 6 and Chamber 7. Take the left branch of the second tunnel. When you go beyond Chamber 4, you will find the room in which you fought the Mole. At the far end are two new entry arches. The one on the left will take you to Chamber 6. The one on the right leads to Chamber 7.
The Rocks in Chambers 1 through 5 contain the same items. It is in Chamber 6 that you will be able to mine for new Gems.
Chanmber 6 is the only Chamber in the Mine where you can find Rubies and Amethyst. The chance of finding either is only 1%, however, so do not be disappointed if you do not obtain any immediately.
Other new items that are available both in Chamber 6 and Chamber 7 are various Fossils. Unlike Gems, which always will go into your Rucksack, any Fossil you find for the first time is considered a 'rare' object worthy of your Storeroom.
Here are the Configurations of each:
Chamber VI.I before and after:
Chamber VI.II before and after:
Chamber VII.I before and after:
Chamber VII.II before and after:
Note that, should you fail to defeat the Mole, you still will be able to enter Chambers 6 and 7 if you reenter the Mine after the Event. If you do not defeat the Mole or fail to visit the Mine at all on 20 Winter, you will experience an Event with Rudolph on 21 Winter at your Farmhouse. He will inform you that the company has removed the Mole from the Mine after receiving a report from him as to the dangers it posed.
In the Event on 21 Winter, which you will not experience if you defeated the Mole yourself, Rudolph will announce that part-Time work again will be available 'tomorrow'. This is not entirely accurate. For a start, if you have unlocked the Mine prior to this by working for Rudolph 5 times, there no longer will be any Part-Time Work. Part-Time Work, even if available, can be obtained only on weekdays. A long weekend follows 20 Winter because of the double Sunday occurrence caused by Liar's Day.
