The most knowledgeable man in Moga Village and respected even by people from outside the village. Apparently he is gathering hunters to the Guild to find out the real reason behind a series of mysterious earthquakes that are becoming more frequent.
Village Elder’s Son
Taking care of the Resource Warehouse, the future Village Elder knows everything about the Moga Forest (モガの森), where players can gather special items that are requested by the villagers for various rewards. Completing these quests also help you expand the various facilities in the village.
Get all your Hunter Guilds quests by talking to the lady (in red) at the counter. As in previous games, players have to pay a certain amount of deposit in order to take on these quests and the Quest Level will increase gradually.
Probably the most beautiful farm in a Monster Hunter game so far, this is where you can grow herbs for health items, fishing for food, mining and more. By talking to Village Elder’s son, you will get to expand the farm. A farm head (in yellow outfit) is in charge of the field with the helps of Ailus (which you get to name them!). Players need to talk to him in order to get their items planted.
Fishing Harbor (漁港)

Trading Ship (交易船)
A good friend of Village Elder, the captain of Trading Ship will turn the Special Product (特産品) given to you by the Village Elder’s son into valuable trading items. During trading, the value of your Special Product is indicated by a green-colored gauge. You can then select the item you want to trade from Trading Ship, which is indicated by yellow-colored gauge. As long as your green bar is longer than the yellow bar, trading can happens. Also worth noting is that whenever Trading Ship is in the dock, there will be discount for items in the shop.
Lead by Wandering Cook (さすらいのコック), who apparently wanted to be on the Trading Ship but couldn’t because of sea sick, the Restaurant is where you can up your stamina or skills before going hunting. Just select two items from the the Cooking List and you can start eating once the food is done.
