So many players are asking about the Character of Freya in Grand Bazaar and my own name. I have been writing strategy guides under the name of Freyashawk for a number of years and my Character in any Harvest Moon or Rune Factory game always has been Freya (if female) and Freyr or Frey (if male) whenever one is not allowed enough letters to name a Character Freyashawk.
Natsume did promise to name a Character after me. Whether or not the new Character in Grand Bazaar was named with me in mind or not, I cannot say as I didn't produce the game!
Mind you, in my first Grand Bazaar file, I named my Girl Character Freya as usual and then had a confusing situation where the small village of Zephyr Town had TWO girls named Freya!
