Steam Description

The Wizard, also known as M. Rasmodius, is a villager who lives in the Wizard's Tower to the far west of Cindersap Forest.


The wizard does not leave the Wizard's Tower (except for festivals), and can be found there when the tower is accessible (6am to 11pm). After the player has unlocked the Witch's Hut, he can be found in his tower after 11pm by using the warp spot in the Witch's Hut.

You can give the Wizard up to two gifts per week (plus one on his birthday), which will raise or lower his friendship with you. Gifts on his birthday (Winter 17) will have 8× effect and show a unique dialogue.
For loved or liked gifts, the Wizard will say

“You remembered my birthday? I'm impressed. Thanks.”
“Oh, is it my birthday today? I guess it is. Thanks. This is nice.”

For neutral gifts, the Wizard will say

“For my birthday? Thanks.”

For disliked or hated gifts, the Wizard will say

“It's my birthday and you give me this? Is this some kind of joke?”


“Ahh, this is imbued with potent arcane energies. It's very useful for my studies. Thank you!”

Four Hearts.png

Players gain access to the basement of the Wizard's Tower, where they can change their character's appearance at The Shrine of Illusions for Gold.png500g.



First Meeting

“Ah, yes. I have predicted your arrival a long time ago, young [Player]. However, your fate is ultimately in your own hands.”


“Ah, yes. I have seen many things about your future, young [Player]. If I were to tell you, there could be grave consequences.”
“If you have nothing important to tell me, leave me be. I have much work to do.”
“It takes years of study to understand the language of the elementals. To actually speak their language requires a lifetime of devoted effort. Now, if you'll excuse me...”
“There are many mysteries around us. You must be patient if you wish to discover them.”
“I believe the townsfolk are afraid of me. It is unfortunate, but I suppose it is human to be afraid of the unknown.”
“Beware, you are standing above a potent magical field. I built my hut right here on purpose, you know.”
“Have you made any headway with the forest spirits?”
“I sometimes observe the local villagers in secret. I am hoping to find an apprentice. Some day I will leave this mortal plane, but my arcane pursuits must continue.”

4+ Hearts

“I trust you enough to allow you in my basement. Treat what you find there with respect.”

6+ Hearts

“I was married, long ago. After my wife and I split, she began flying around the countryside, cursing everything she saw. It's not a very mature way to express one's anger.”

10 Hearts

“You musn't tell anyone... but I have reason to believe that one of the locals is actually my daughter... I could be mistaken... It's rare, but it does happen.”

Note: The Wizard is not always accessible at festivals. Regardless, he has unique dialogue for each.

Egg Festival

“Hmm... And what about raw lizard egg sprinkled with blackened marrow?”

Flower Dance

“You shouldn't be up here.”

The Luau

“The merpeople are curious about your festivities. They become upset when you litter into the ocean.”

Dance of the Moonlight Jellies

“How did you find me back here? I thought I was well-hidden. Perhaps you are blessed with the gift of clairvoyance. I'm here to observe the Lunaloos... or 'Moonlight Jellies', as you call them. They possess an unusually potent magical aura for an aquatic life form.”

Stardew Valley Fair

“Welwick and I have known each other for a long time... she is a remarkable diviner, and a good friend.

...That clown... I know him from somewhere. Was it the school of illusion? Or maybe the Carnival of Secrets? Hmm...”

Spirit's Eve
Although you cannot reach the Wizard to see the dialogue in-game, he has dialogue scripted in underlying data files.

“The affairs of mundane folk matter little to me, but the elementals like a chance to see you up close. It was for them that I created this silly maze.”

Festival of Ice

“Sneaking off to visit my weird tower? You're odd for a mundane.”

Feast of the Winter Star
Although the Wizard does not attend the Feast, he has dialogue scripted in underlying data files.

“Ah, the mysterious Winter Star. One of the reasons I chose this valley as the location for my... research.”


Warning: Spoilers

This page or section contains unmarked spoilers from update 1.5 of Stardew Valley. Mobile players may want to avoid or be cautious toward reading this article.


  • Because the door to his house is locked at the start of the game, the Wizard does not count towards the introductions quest.
  • Introduction to the Wizard normally occurs at his invitation to see him about the Junimos, a part of the preparation for unlocking the Community Center bundles. When you see him at that time, you must play through the entire cutscene. If you do not, the game does not record that you have met him. Although the bundles are still unlocked, friendship and communications with him will not occur until you go to him another time to record the meeting.
    • The Wizard's Tower is unlocked upon purchasing a Joja membership. After that, the player must speak with him at any time (including during Festivals) to commence friendship.
  • Despite being unreachable in most festivals, the Wizard has unique dialogue for every festival, some with backstory on the events.
  • The Wizard mentions being married for years until he "made a mistake that drove her (his wife) away". The mistake is not specified, but it was enough to turn her "green" out of anger and envy, presumably explaining how she became a witch.
  • The Wizard suspects that one of the villagers is his daughter, asking you not to tell anyone. Dialogues with Caroline, Pierre, and Abigail heavily imply that this refers to Abigail herself. There is also some minor evidence that it could be Emily, based on dialogue with Haley, her hair color, and her interest in the spiritual side of the occult.



  • 1.3: Added unique blue stationery used exclusively for letters from the Wizard.
