Stardew Valley “Mayor’s Shorts” Story Quest is another one of the game’s real-world story quest; that feels eerily familiar to the real world. The quest is a little absurd, but it is tons of fun to carry out. The objective of the quest is very simple: “you have to find the Mayor’s missing prize pair of purple shorts”. The Quest is easy and straightforward to complete.

The quest will be triggered automatically by a piece of the letter; arriving in the mail from the Mayor. The Mayor demands your help to retrieve a purple short that he seems to have lost. The only clue is that the shorts are purple and they are the mayors favorite.

The shorts themselves are relatively easy to locate: they can be found in Marnie’s room. The room is located on the ranch. The farm is situated just south of you. The only problem is; you have to be first friends with Marnie. Friendship with Marnie can be achieved by either completing a quest, but since quest is hard to come by; Option B is to build a friendship by giving Marnie gifts.

Bonus Tips: Giving gifts is the easiest way to befriend someone in the game. Marnie especially appreciates the following items:

• Food items, particularly Cakes, Corn, and most cooked items
• Valuable gems like Diamonds
• Eggs gleaned from a Coop
• Milk gleaned from a Barn
• Flowers
