I am putting this info in a thread separate from the general Tips on Socializing, which is now mostly spoiler-free.  This is info that normally you get at Associate and Buddy level with the residents of Portia.


Black Book v3.71
This is a work in progress.

People whom you may marry are listed in RED.

With a few exceptions: Bouquets of Wildflowers +4, of Asteria +6, of Roses +8
 :D Day of Bright Sun :D:  All gifts are 3x normal value.

Aadit:  (Aadit is a pacifist, and will not spar without Fair Fight skill.)
Albert:  jewelry (unspecified), crafting materials (unspecified)
Alice:  Dislikes Snake Berry.
Antoine:  Perfume (untested)
Arlo:  food (unspecified, see food preferences)
Dr. Xu:  Herbal Mixture +6, Simple Ointment +6
Emily:  sweets (unspecified), Pumpkin Pie +10, wants a telescope.  Dislikes blades.

Toby:  Apple Juice +6
Tody:  Dislikes Pot of Flowers

Note:  for food descriptions, the wording is specific -- "smoked" is not the same as "grilled", and "spicy" is not the same as "hot" in regard to preferences or dislikes.  The menu changes, and I don't know the frequency.  There may be a specific menu for each day of the week, or it may be a random daily selection.  Portia Hot Pot is both Hot and Spicy.  If they say they want a particular dish, that takes precedence over their normal likes/dislikes. Use preferences to fill out unspecified portions of the meal.  6 items seems to be optimal, and you may order more than one thing from a section to "add in favorites."
