There's a lot of good in life. You just have to look for it.

Kyme's searching for a fresh start in the city of Province. Will he find it among the eccentric residents and their whimsical adventures? Or will he get lost chasing his personal villain, a grand thief capable of stealing the blue from the sky, the voice of a singer, and even the very memory of what he stole, leaving you with nothing but an empty feeling?

Notes From Province is an Open World RPG focused on exploration and meeting people.

Recipe
Start with a solid RPG, simmer lightly
  • Open world - no dead ends, only new things to see and treasure to find
  • Character driven story - even the battles have a story to tell
  • Crafting, cooking, fishing, dancing, finding a strange rat-loving man living in a hole under your neighbor's house

Mix in 2 cups tactical combat
  • 7 characters - with distinct styles and roles, swap-able mid combat
  • Equipment based customization - abilities and passives come from equipment that can be freely swapped to redefine characters
  • Enemies worth reacting to - each encounter has a plan to crush you unless you spot the weakness and counter

And season with a hint of Animal Crossing
  • Decorate and expand your house - a straight-faced, no nonsense man with rabbit ears will judge your furniture arrangement and award you accordingly
  • NPCs with lives - each villager has their own daily agenda, situational dialog, and a story to tell the more you get to know them

Which part of the swamp are you stuck in? Everything you need is inside the dungeon itself, and the whole thing is optional.

Thanks for replying immediately.. Nvm I found it the trick was to jump(shift). Lmao I kind of skimmed over the instruction and text for the first time around.

Now I'm close to completing it all. The only ones in the way is that illusionist(rescuing luciana) and stranger boss(abandoned house). The party I have is almost at level 80 plus having all cooked ingredients distributed and yet I still struggle finding the optimal party and builds to beat them. Really hardcore lmao. I even just had luck beating the moon raven using zombie flesh at the right time. HEEEEELP PLS LOL..

There's also those two who might help me later on stated by Ezekiel from the abandoned alchemy building. Are they for main quest only? (recover sitas memory)

Edit: I beat the illusionist, Luciana is pissed and he doesn't really say anything after that rough fight. Jeez, great boss fight though.
Those end game boss fights are pretty tough! Other players posted some of their setups in the comments.

Here's a high damage build:

The two characters from the abandoned alchemy building are only for the main quest. Once you've beat them a second time, that's it.
This is a great game! Any tips for the sewer slime mini game? I can't seem to get a time of more than 39...
That game is tough. I try to lure the slimes into a corner for as long as possible to maximize the open space, then lure them into the opposite corner.
Hi,

Where can i find a character with fire spells? I'm still at the beginning and have only Sita and Ezekiel.

Thanx in advance!

Edit: I found him :)
Help please, is there anyone who know the password for the gambling den?
The harbor thief, a well known gambler, knows the secret to the gambling den. Once you've proven your strength to Luciana, she will start the harbor thief quest.

Feel free to jump onto the game's Discord server if you need quicker answers/help with the game!
The Notes From Province guide / walkthrough is finally here! Thanks to Kiyoshiro for pouring lots of hard work into this one.

Check it out!
hi,

I need some help to finish the game.
1. Chuck's note is inactive. I sill need one demon blood to craft the last weapon from him. The only todo I did not do it yet is 'play the stranger's game'.
2. Evete's note is inactive. I do not know what to do.
3. Zario O' Dario is inactive. I do not know what to do.
4. I still miss one apple and one chili to get a complete cooking from Mama Cici.
5. Where to get dancing gold star?

If all the notes are active, does that mean the game is complete and we head to confront Redd.

Some battles are extremely difficult. They took me more than 1 hour to win them.
Try returning to Frost Fall Pass. That should help with most of the list.

The Dancing Gold Star comes from the minigame in the dance studio by the church. If the game is too difficult, you can always cheat by writing down the dance moves.

Once you have all notes and all todos, you've essentially completed the game. If you're playing the Steam version, there's a few extra achievements for things that don't have a note/todo.
Thank you for your help. It is a very great game.
what does condition damage do?

Condition damage increases the damage from conditions: Bleed, Poison, Disease, Burn, and Wildfire.
In a continuous battle (such as a tournament), if Smith uses guilding light on targets and kills all the targets in the first round before the combo of guilding light is completed, the error message will pop up and the next round of battle will not able to be continued And the game needs to be open again.
Hi,

Would you please update the version with the guilding light skill to be fixed?
The download has been updated to v1.1.13, which matches the latest version on Steam and includes the Guiding Light fix.
