Social is an interaction typically between two characters. All known characters have the "talk" social interaction. Some characters have additional social interactions, such as "rock, paper scissors" and sparring. Reaching certain milestones in a relationship status provides more social interactions, such as playing, romance, and more. All characters can receive gifts.
Talking is a generic social interaction. Once a day when talking to a character, the relationship between the player and the character increases by one, unless modified by skills or other methods.
Despite having the talk action, Higgins and the Mysterious Man are exempt from relationship increases.
