Now head over to the campsite and talk to these villagers. They will request you to craft some special objects for them. Although it requires some efforts, crafting but itis worth a try.

Once done, give it to them and in return, they will give you a piece of clothing as a token of gesture and they will be off to their village them. You will have to repeat this process for 3 consecutive days. Once this period has elapsed, talk with them invite them to your village. But your village is already full?
