Players of the original Rune Factory will recall the 'Round Stone' Quest. There are echoes of the original game when, at 9 Hearts, Cecilia makes a request for the Round Stone. In this game, you will find it on the ground, openly displayed, at the end of the long bridge in the Messhina Valley. When you take it to her, she will return it to you for safekeeping... until later. I wonder why?!
