Some Areas In The Maps Will Be Disabled
|Village||Chapter 1 to Chapter 6|
(Free to explore the map up until Chapter 4)
|Castle||Chapter 7 to Chapter 12|

In the game, the map is divided into three main areas: Village, Castle, and Island. The map will change as you progress. There will be some areas that will be inaccessible, and some items that you have missed will be unobtainable. Although the game is designed to be played more than once, be careful if you want to collect as many items as possible in the first playthrough.
Items That Will Be Unobtainable
- Blue Request Notes (Sub-Quest)
- Destroying Clockwork Castellans
- Yellow Herbs
- Treasures, etc.
What To Do When Areas & Items Are Unaccessible?
Load The Previously Saved Data
▲ It is safe to leave saved data from the start of each chapter.
If you cannot access the past areas and missed items, you can load your previously saved data and play through it once again, so make sure to save each chapter when you complete it.
Collect Items From 2nd Playthrough
You can get the missed items above from the second playthrough if you have completed the game once. Since the game is designed to be played more than once, if you're planning to have a second playthrough, you can play without worrying about missing some items.
