TABLE OF CONTENTS
Hello dear readers, and welcome to Appleby’s Butterbrew Festival! You have come a long way to see our festival here, and it is my job to give you a proper tour. Appleby Village is best known for its cozy country vibes and gorgeous fields of produce. Our butterbrew is evenly matched with Hogsend’s famous brew itself. With this in mind, pick up this guide, go to the entrance of the village, and follow along with me on a tour through the festivities!
Welcome to the Appleby Village entrance! The village proper is just ahead. On your left and right, you may have already noticed the stone walls that line the roads. Just beyond them are the rolling fields that are our pride and joy. Look there on your left for the apple orchard. I could get lost in those trees– at least I would not go hungry! Then, on your right is the grape vineyard. I just love wandering through the rows upon rows of bushes laden with ripening fruits.
Next, you will see the fireplace with access to the Fire Dust Network. Besides your Warp Key, this will be your primary access point in and out of the village. As you follow the road just past the fireplace, you will see a sign directing you to the Farmhouse. Go right on through the brick barns. Brush your hand across the old brick as you pass through; there is a rich history in every brick and beam of this village. Our village might be small, but we more than make up for it with our deep roots in tradition.
The little alley will spit you out in front of the Farmhouse. This homely building is bigger than it looks and much cozier than its hatch roof might imply! You can explore the interior later; for now, take a sharp right, and let’s visit the Marketplace.
Follow the path past the cobble wall. When you see the picnic tables and the orange, white, and purple banners strung about, that’s when you will know you are in the Marketplace! Here, you can talk to all of the vendors and participate in the fair games. Make sure to explore this place thoroughly for collectables and minigames. Most importantly, I recommend tasting our delicious butterbrew on your way through!
Our next stop is the Community Garden. Look around the Marketplace for a sign pointing you in the right direction and follow the path up a little hill. The garden is fenced in to protect our hard work from hungry animals! This little garden is Appleby's pride and joy; you will see all sorts of homegrown produce in here, from lettuce heads to sunflowers to tomatoes. Love and care is the secret behind our delicious foods!
Alas, it is time for our official tour to end. Outside the garden and to the left is the Town Hall. It is one of the biggest buildings in Appleby Village, placed directly at its heart. Inside, you will find the Mayor's Office, and its occupant would love to see you!
This is where I will leave you. However, there is so much left to explore! You may have seen the sign pointing to the Quabbleball Pitch, or the top of the Old Mill when you first entered. I hope you fall in love with our countryside, just as all of our residents have. Feel free to take your time and enjoy every sight Appleby Village has to offer. Have a lovely time exploring!
