If you want to be listed as a contributer for adding your way, let me know. I don't mind!) Also: if you'd like to translate this guide to a different language: Go ahead! ^_^

  • This guide will be Spoiler free.
  • The easy achievements will be lumped together, the achievements that require more in depth steps will get their own section.

Jan 20: If you have high friendship with Virginia (might be on her romantic route, not sure, since I got the encounter by having nothing else to do), you can get 5 more weird points by suggesting she wears clown gear. Then go to the mall and wear funny hats (5 again). With the wiggle wand and weird glasses, that maxed me out actually, so I don't need to do the other stuff. I hadn't done Virginia's path yet so felt it was worth mentioning the alternative
alicia, the moon sage Feb 15 @ 4:40pm 
Weirdo achievement seems to be missing that you can get weird points from the bunny (Dec 14: relax, kiss the bunny)
DodoTofu Apr 18, 2018 @ 5:45am 
For the Rose and Wasp I didn't do anything other than attend the play, say "they should be punished," and tell Ellen "it's a magic exam." Otherwise I actually had positive merits and did pretty much everything else differently.

@Cirno Hmm, Attend anyway, and fail the last exam. It should give you the achievement, if not, i'll replay his route and fix my section on him.
Cirno ⑨ Feb 20, 2017 @ 3:12pm 
I didn't get "divorced path".

Mar 14: give up on exam.

- I won't forgive you or something.
- Don't talk.
- Attend anyway.

Should i fail the last exam?
curvedtrees Feb 19, 2017 @ 1:09pm 
Oh. And for Star Student reaching 50 merits is enough, so not ALL steps are needed - though if you miss or mess something at start - the guide is helpful to catch up :)
monkey  [author] Feb 19, 2017 @ 3:02am 
@curvedtrees
nice!!! i'll add it the list. i didnt realize you could romance her and still get it <3 thats great shes my favorite
curvedtrees Feb 19, 2017 @ 12:53am 
heh... I got conspiracy achieve though I did opposite things for first half. And never tried to run for treasurer. And I DID run romantic line with Ellen. Still, I was brought into Ellen's conspiracy }:o) Guess, earning Ellen points is most crucial to get that achieve
monkey  [author] Feb 8, 2017 @ 8:54am 
@Schattennarr ooh, interesting, i'll add it to the list!
Schattennarr Feb 8, 2017 @ 7:46am 
You also can get the Expelled!-Achievement as follows:
Start the line with Damien
If he ask you out, tell him, you have no romatic feels for him
He'll "kidnap" you later in the game to the gym and tell his dilemma
Agree to take part on the ritual

If you just want the achievement, safe before you agree and jump back. By not agreeing nothing happens to you.
