Onsen Town region
This is the region where Nanako starts the game. It consists of Onsen Town itself and the areas to the North, East, and West.
Onsen Town is a small walled resort located on the horse train line between Nanako's homeland and the Capital. Nanako wants to seek her fortune in the big city, but she stops here because she can't afford a ticket all the way to the Capital. Surely there's a way to make a buck around this place.
Onsen Town is build around a crossroads: one main road runs North-to-South, the other runs East-to-West. The roads divide the town into four quadrants. There are gates leading into the wilderness in each cardinal direction, and there's a fountain right at the center of town.
The fountain at the center of town has several different points of interest. First, if you examine the sign on the south side of the fountain, you'll find that by praying to the Protective Goddess, you can adjust whether or not the game allows you to change clothes in combat areas. This matters more in VH than in most ARPGs, because many monsters rip off or destroy your clothes.
Second, if you're visiting the fountain during the day, you'll find a bald, fat, angry-looking guy standing at the north side. This man is the only decent human being in the entire game. If you talk to him while you have 500 G or less, he'll give you 50 G. You can do this repeatedly, until you have more than 500 G. You can even go blow your money on freaky sex toys and come back broke and he'll start giving you money again.
In addition, if you talk to him while indecently clothed, he'll assume you're desperately poor and hand you 500 G in one lump. He'll cut you off once he's handed you a total of 500 G, though (this is a hand up, not a hand out). Note that if you really want to abuse his generosity, you can get 450 G out of him 50 G at a time, then go topless to pick up your final handout. He'll still give you a full 500 G, making a total of 950 G leeched out of him before he cuts you off.
Finally, if you come by at night you'll see a blue-haired young man walking around the west side of the fountain. He's available for some hot H-event action.
Onsen Town is surrounded by a curtain wall, with gates in each cardinal direction. You are able to both go inside the wall and climb on top of it to travel around the perimeter of the city. For full details, see the main article on the wall.
The Northwest part of town may be the most important, as it contains both the inn and the Adventurers' Guild. You might think of it as the business district. For more information, see the main article about this area.
The Northeast part of Onsen Town has a couple of points of interest, but also quite a bit of filler.
The onsen (a hot spring that people bathe in) is the feature for which the town is named. It'll cost you just 20 G to enter and get access to all the ridiculous H-events within.
The onsen actually forms the southwest corner of a little market plaza.
Weapons and Armor
...and lottery tickets and lingerie.
Yes, the gentleman on the left sells a selection of weapons and armor, though it mostly duplicates what you have. This might be useful if some of your original equipment has been dissolved by slimes.
The woman on the right sells lottery tickets for 100 G (i.e. takes money from you and gives nothing in return). She also sells underwear, but again, it mostly just duplicates the starting equipment of various characters. Drop by here in case something... "happens" to your panties or those of your companions.
The woman in the middle stall mostly sells expendable items (potions and whatnot). She also sells horse train tickets, but they're seriously expensive. You might be better off earning the free ticket at the Adventurers' Guild, since you'd probably have to work there anyway to get enough money for a ticket here.
She's also involved in the Medicine Delivery quest; she gives you the item to deliver, and at the end of the quest she'll give you a few items as a bonus on top of the payment you receive back at the Guild.
Come by during the day and the shopkeeper will be busy unpacking and setting up. Return at night and he'll be open, offering an array of marital aids with little to no in-game purpose.
Boarding House / Barracks
The boarding house (formerly the barracks of the City Guard, but now available for rent) is the large stone building just north of the market. It has four entrances: two on the south face and two on the north. All four entrances lead to the same common area. The above picture shows the southwest entrance.
At the moment, there's really nothing to do here. There are a few people to chat with, but that's all. Note that after you finish the whole Thieves' Hide-out quest, the boarding house will be closed, but you won't be missing much.
City Guard headquarters
The headquarters of the City Guard is to the north of the boarding house, right up against (and connected to) the Walls. There are three doors on the south face; the picture shows the westernmost entrance.
The western entrance leads to a training area, with several soldiers sparring. The central entrance leads to an unmanned counter. The eastern entrance leads to an information desk, where you can report crimes and be raped in exchange.
Most of the interior of the barracks is inaccessible from these three public entrances; to experience the rest of the building, including a soldier who craps lava, you'll need to get in the back way by going inside the Walls.
There are a few different events around here, but the southeastern portion of town is mostly dominated by a big lake.
Just to the southeast of the fountain you'll find the public restrooms. There are, of course, H-events to be had here. Also, the clock on the front of the building can be used to advance time (day to night or night to day).
At the center of the lake is a small bench that if Nanako chooses to lie down on, triggers an H-Scene.
From here you can travel to numerous places in debug mode, in regular mode it allows you to travel to the capitol if you have the free city pass.
Secret rating area
This area is found by going to the East Gate but instead of going out the little side door, go down into the wall and you will be inside it, keep going down untill you reach a set of stairs to the right, you will be outside again, go down onto the grassy area up towards the child, he will see if you're wearing panties ( though it doesnt really matter if you are or not). Continue on into the stairs to get to the secret room, viewing the mirror will have Nanako check her self out, talking to the man will have him rate you and going as far left as you can and then down and talking to a barrel will give you a similar scene.NOTE: this area is largely untranslated.
As mentioned before, it is possible to venture within the walls surrounding Onsen Town and atop their battlements. In addition to doors located to either side of each gate and centered beneath the overarching battlements, the Walls' Interior can also be accessed through another door immediately southeast of the Carriage Shop and through numerous stairwells interspersed along the battlements. The battlements themselves can be accessed by ascending stairwells outside in the Northeast and Southwest Quadrants (the Northwest Quadrant has blockaded its stairwell and the Southeast Quadrant's stairwell only provides access to the Secret Room). The Horse Train Station (whose door is mentioned earlier in this section) is actually located within the southern Wall.
The southwest section of Onsen Town is filled with residences. One has some very important stuff inside, and almost all have some sort of trouble that you can get in.
The residential district is built around a small L-shaped road. It connects to the major roads near the West Gate and the South Gate. The different houses will be described in the order you encounter them when you walk along the L-shaped road starting near the South Gate.
Soldier's Family's House
The first house along the L-shaped road contains a wife and three kids; the husband is off serving in the guard, and this has apparently caused some strife in the family. However, there's nothing for us to care about in here.
"Affectionate" Couple's House
The second house you'll encounter belongs to a married couple. They apparently enjoy each others' company greatly; if you head upstairs you'll find that either the husband is away and the wife is eagerly awaiting his return, or he's home and they're humping like rabbits.
Following the third side path off the L-shaped road will take you to a vine-covered house inhabited by a young witch. This is easily the most important house in the district.
First, scattered around the house are books that let you manipulate your character's personality stats: charm, purity/dirtiness, and sexual desire. You can read the books over and over, so you can basically change those stats however you like.
Second, if you're strong enough (determined by your hit points), the witch will offer you extremely degrading but highly profitable quests. There are multiple HP tiers, so if you've done her early quests and she hasn't offered you the later ones you may need to level up more.
Third, after completing the witch's first quest you get access to a new basement area with a magical symbol on the floor. There are similar symbols elsewhere, and the symbol here can act as a teleportation destination from those, but you can't actually teleport from here (which may be a bug).
Proceeding north along the L-shaped road, you'll hit a spot where sidewalks branch off to both the left and the right; if you go left you'll reach Shota's house. By day, there is a loving couple living here with their young son; return at night with a sufficiently depraved character for an H scene with the impressionable lad.
House with Kids "Playing Doctor"
Hang a right at the intersection described above and you'll find this house. According to a note in the kitchen, the parents have gone out for the day; the kids have accordingly headed down to the basement for some H action.
