Note from SpiritWind - you must have Thurston walking around and have finished building his Fort to trigger these goals. Added 13 April, 2015.

Hi All!

Today we released a big update for Castle Story (I'm sure you all have seen it by now!)
We want to thank you all for playing the game and we hope you have as much fun playing it as we had making it.

Here is a summary on the update:
- New Quest Series regarding the one year birthday of the Kingdom
- New Asset: Jousting Arena (cool thing about this asset is that it'll change visually when you update it, give it a try!)
- Thurston will redeem himself in this story (will he win the Jousting Tournament in your honor?!)
- 7 New Fortunes have been added to the Fortune Teller Building

Here are some photos of the Jousting Arena upgrade states:

We have lots of new updates coming for the game, so stick around! I'll try to post regularly with sneak peaks into new content =)

Have a good weekend all! And thank you again for your support!!

Enjoy the new building, drops are unknown, it dropped a sword once

For the people judging because i speeded up a few things In my defense I have NEVER complained about the lack of updates, what I do complain though, is about people WANTING updates.

This is a message from the other post:



Appluading.....

I have only just begun reading all of the dialogue, but, let's draw it out a bit!!


I agree. These things are meant to take time and be savored, to lead up into the next update. I used gems for ALL of the Sabina goals and grew bored quickly. I then whined for the T&T. I'd have finished the golden one if not for my daufhter using my gold nuggets. Now this one is here and the same day complaints are being made. It's obvious from how intricate some goals are that they take time. I know I complain sometimes but they can't win for anything. We get something, its too hard. We get something, its too easy. We get the Sabina goals and its too much, we don't have mithril to make scissors. We get goals and in Under three hours, its said its not enough.

As far as expansions, I have two of every building and four libraries, to make room if need be, I can throw a few buildings me chop down some trees to make room. I'd love to expand to the little jewel building with the crown, but ill take what I've been given and run with it. Because when the next huge update comes I feel it'll be a doozy.

Savor and enjoy folks. Savor and enjoy.

I adore how the building changes with the upgrades. I'm making my feasts and royal blocks at the moment. Gives me more to do than just making spicy feasts for adventures.

I'm disappointed the dialogue box graphics don't take into consideration the male/female status of the player. That's either a clear omission or a cheap shortcut.

09-12-13, 03:19 PM
I've gotto admit it doesn't feel like a year - I've obviously had a lot of fun so it seems like less time. The game has evolved so much in this time. I love the dialogue in this game and how the characters have such great personalities. I can't wait to see how it's all going to evolve further.

Aggwynn if you're going to give us regular sneak peaks of future content, I think I might just have to call you the oracle.

Glad to be part of the first anniversary, and look forward to seeing what more you have in store for us! Only thing I am not sure about is Thurston redeeming himself... in a few years some judges will do a magical analysis on him and realize he used a performance-enhancing potion and take his trophy away! :)

Question on the Tavern Etiquetti goal, it says visit the tavern to negotiate with the craft master,
Upon clicking, it brings me to buying a tavern, but I already have a tavern.
Why didn't it bring me to my existing tavern instead but require me to build another one?

You got to "collect" from it, I dont know the correct answer to your question since I did not designed it but thats what you got to do.

His happened with another past goal/building. Usually you can just ignore the buy step if you already have the building and just collect from it to fulfill the requirements.

However, I think mine may be glitching. I collected from my existing tavern but it didn't complete so I purchased and built a new one and it completed but when I reopen the game the goal reappeared with all the check marks filled except the last one. When I clicked it, again it requested I buy another tavern. Since money and supples are not an issue, I bought it again in hopes of getting rid of the goal. Again it disappeared and I now have 3 taverns. Will report back if the goal reappears again.

Thx. that's exactly what I worry might happen, so check here first.
I still have 2 hr+ to collect. Will report what happen. Resource is not an issue
But just feel a bit uneasy that the program can't catch if there is any existing building or not.

I waited to collect from my tavern and that satisfied the goal. It went to the next step. I would give it a few minutes after you collect for the action to hit the server. Don't go buy another tavern right away, give it a bit to sync.

09-13-13, 07:24 AM
Okay I'm really annoyed now. I got the tavern etiquette goal early this morning. Loaded the items (ore, chicken and hides) but since I had just collected I had to wait for the tavern. No problem. I go back in later and the games being a little jumpy, so I stop collecting stuff and leave the game. Force close it and restart my device. I log back on and got a sign up that said new goal. Then I get the dialogue again and I go in and it wants all the same items again. I check my inventory and it's gone. The game has taken it all off my inventory but no longer registers it.
I'm going to get told this is a sync error but how? I was using this on a wireless network. I was in and out of the game at least twice before it started getting jumpy and I had to reset it. Long story short DON'T trust that your progress is saved on the servers because mine clearly wasn't.
I am so irritated. :mad:

Do you have both of the waiting quests available yet? One comes from Thomas' line (Jousting Materials List) and the other comes from Ivy's (Jousting Food List). Once you complete both (by clicking on the green "Wait" button), then the next quest unlocks (Putting It All Together).

No need to bother about buying new Tavern if you already hv one. Just collect from existing Tavern when time is due.

Sorry i cant help with that. What i can suggest is that If you're game is getting a bit jumpy and you feel there's a chance of a sync error, make sure you visit a neighbour or post and delete on your wall before exiting. This will force your game to save on the server.

We just fixed an issue with the goal, Putting It All Together.

If you already have this goal in your goal book, you'll need to select it to start the story dialog, since it did not start automatically after completing 2 goals, Jousting Materials List and Jousting Food List. But if you haven't reached Putting It All Together yet, the story dialog will automatically appear as soon as you unlock it.

Thanks for letting us know about this! :D

Once I hit WAIT on two different goal lines I lost those goals completely under "Kingdom Goals". I force quit again since you said you had fixed one issue, but I am still stuck. What should I do next? Since the goals have disappeared I can't tell you what they were titled. I had gone to the tavern and gone to see Thurston. I was so excited to have a goal that wasn't reliant on random drops or gems (can't afford the fortune teller and still waiting on gold for the the perfect gift). I would appreciate any help.

Sync errors are REALLY common in this game. maguar's advice is best: visit a neighbour to force save to the server. You know it's worked when you get a pop-up from the Baron telling you to install another game (this happens if it is the first save in a few hours).

But if you haven't reached Putting It All Together yet, the story dialog will automatically appear as soon as you unlock it.

Thanks for letting us know about this! :D

Thanks for your reply...
But our situation is: after completing the Jousting Materials List and Jousting Food List goals (that means tapped on the "wait"), there is no more new goal on our goal book except the farm story 2...
I'm still waiting... Over 24 hrs!!!

Same here. I completed the goals, the tavern etiquette, given the food and ice cream, and have pressed both wait "buttons". All goals have disappeared. There is nothing to tell me what I'm waiting or or how long I have to wait. I collected food, I collected from all my buildings, I used workshops and potion shops. Still nothing has happened. I have no "putting it all together" goal, nothing to select. I have forced closed the game, visited neighbors... Still nothing. ????

My friend reports the same problem.....

I still have my Love Shack so I assume I am on the Valentine version. It is the only version I have used.

I still have my Love Shack so I assume I am on the Valentine version. It is the only version I have used.

If you download the regular version, the Love Shack will still be there. The regular version is the most up to date version, and the one recommended to be using.
If you have the pretty pink backgrounds (trees and such), that's the Valentines version :)

I have never seen or found any update to remove the eye-popping PINK Valentine's Edition! It has not been for lack of trying! I would love to be rid of the pink forest! Where is that update? It's not in the App Store, nor have I found it anywhere else!

I don't have the pink backgrounds just the love shack so I must be in the regular version. It is how I started months ago. I have not done any change to it. Again, thanks for any help you can give me.

This is the most current version number for the regular game.

I am only at 1.1.2 If I go to the app store and try to load the update that is there I am told my operating system isn't high enough. Am I not going to be able to continue with the game at 1.1.2? I am not in the position to upgrade my IOS right now. I have the very first version of the iPad. Thanks

I guess I should also say I have been at level 30 for a while now and my game has functioned well outside of many of the same glitches others have written about such as sync errors. Everything outside of the current goal lines seems to be working just fine. And the goals were working great until I got to the WAIT part of each one.

It isn't that easy with the first iPad. It requires syncing with the computer and using iTunes. We tried once and it failed. Worker at Apple store said I could lose photos, etc so I've become hesitant to try again. I will have to give it another go this weekend.
I don't know that even if I do update my iPad (the highest I can go with this version is IOS 5) that my game will magically give me the goal line again. It would be a happy occurrence though!

I am also on iPad1 (on maximum update available for this early version - IOS 5.1.1).

The goal has so far remained in place for me,currently finishing off the hearty feasts.
If you have not already done so it may be worth force restarting the iPad to see if that helps. I have had to do this a few times in the last few months & thankfully has worked.

I can only imagine it must be very frustrating & hope that these goals re-appear for you.

09-13-13, 11:25 PM
Sorry i cant help with that. What i can suggest is that If you're game is getting a bit jumpy and you feel there's a chance of a sync error, make sure you visit a neighbour or post and delete on your wall before exiting. This will force your game to save on the server.

But I was in and out of the game before it decided to do this. Does it not save when you leave?

You're wrong! The highest OS for iPad 1 is iOS 5.1.1
I know because I have been using for a year and it has been deactivated 3 months ago for some reason! :(
Most current is iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5 only[and maybe iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C]) and iOS 6.1.3 for iPad 2 - iPad Mini
iOS 7 coming on September 18 2013 and DO NOT upgrade it! If you do this....There's a 94% chance on getting your data removed until TL approves it

I finished the goal 10. Jousting Materials List last night, and now nothing is leading me to the next goal 11. Putting It All Together... Am I supposed to collect from some building to activate it or is the bug not fixed yet? I collected from all the main character's houses/forts already but that didn't work. And I force closed my game last night before I went to sleep.

Spent over 10 gems to complete the goals last night, too, because I was too impatient and wanted to move on with the other goals...

All your data should still exist: if you download the game again and log in with the same team lava id as before you should still have all your stuff in your kingdom.

We managed to update the iPad. It wouldn't let me save a very cute video of my dog as a puppy but luckily it was still on the memory card. 90 minutes later I have installed the Castle Story update. I have the goals going again and other than lots of sudden game closing (hopefully that will stop once the game has been played some) all is good. As long as I don't get a rare drop right before the game closes on me I will be happy. Every time it closes on me it goes back a few steps.
Thanks to everyone who helped.
Hopefully everyone else who is having issues can find a fix as easily.

Think it could be Level 23
BUT
I had just reached level 23 when the goals appeared on my device. coincidence or design>not sure
but goal #7 requires level 23 for the Ice Cream. And I have come to a complete stop at goal #13 because the Light Armor unlocks at Level 25.

sorry, that is all I can tell you about my experience so far.

Well, the game knows we need those rat tails (30 in fact) for the Chill Out Potion so the skunkupines become nonexistent. I have chopped trees, harvested sugar, red mushrooms, etc. and maybe have gotten two. I'm telling you it's coded for them to become ultra, ultra rare when they are required for a goal.

This is probably nothing you already knew but skunkpines WILL ALWAYS (as in, only skunkpines, and not fangbeasts or trolls) come out when you collect wheat, sugar canes, flowers.

As far I remember, both mushrooms and trees have chance of spawning different animals, so if you are after only skunkpines you might want to avoid them

Not sure about the other items but when you collect from wheat you get fangbeasts...... You will get skunkupines when collecting from corn.

I never get those hideous fangbeast, but always skunkpines. I'm harvesting some now because I'd made well over 60 potions for the spicy feasts in the past two weeks. NOW they give me a use for the tails when I ran out.

I'm busy planting corn because it takes a lot less time than wheat to be ready for harvest (I must have been mistaken about fangbeasts liking wheat :)

Help! I upgraded the jousting arena to level 3 while waiting for the potion to brew. After giving it to Thurston and getting the frame to go cheer him on, when I push the button to go the the arena, it takes me to the glimmer Trove in the market.
I have two of those. I have collected from the arena before Thurston was ready. Regular version 1.1.5 but just switched to that from Valentines edition 1.1.3. (I like the purple trees). I read the posts that the quest would not finish in Valentines and then went to the regular which I've had on my iPad for a month or two. I waited until I had collected from the troves, but no change. I have not collected from the arena since Thurston was ready. It's got about 12 hrs to go.

I still haven't got the putting it together goal almost 48hrs now, I don't think the glitch is fixed.

Also to the moderators: I CANNOT upgrade my app as it will lock my phone as I don't have the iOS requirement. It's not fair for users who would have to buy a new phone just to play the game, when in fact they can still upgrade their apps without needing a higher iOS like other game makers out there. Why do you make upgrades that need a higher iOS fir what purpose other then benefiting apple.

So sad! And a little frustrating as to date everything else has worked fine. Oh well......roll on next February.....:-)

There's really no need for you to answer my question in such a snarky way. I thought this was the place to ask these questions? :rolleyes: Reason I asked was because sometimes the first page isn't complete yet and I found it strange for the rest of the goals to need so much if nothing was rewarded after. But thanks for clearing it up for me.

This happened to me as well. You just have to wait until the arena is ready to have the coin collected from it. Once you collect the coin you will get the next prompt in the goat quest. Hope this helps.

Are you on IOS? If so, go to the App Store and tap purchases at the bottom of the screen. All your games will show up there. It should be in your iCloud if you enabled that feature. I love iCloud because all my pictures are uploaded automatically to my computer, laptop, phone, & iPad when they are on.
If you're on android system, I don't know what you'd do but I would think the game would still be in the store if you do a search.

I waited to collect from the Arena after upgrading to Level 2. Time finally passed and now it has given me the exact story line again to upgrade to level 2 and then cheer on Thurston. I already waited the several hours to collect from the arena and now have the same exact prompts. Disappointed! And yes, I have closed it down and restarted my game.

Nice to have something...BUT....the thing is so small, when I put it next to a bench it looked like a child's toy. I guess I'm going to have to put it out in a field so it look far away or something. But of course I don't have that kinda room so it will have to look like a toy in my kingdom. TL we need room to expand....please! Starting to sound like a echo in this thread,
Expand.....expand...please room to expand! ^u^

I know that!
What level requirement can you get this feature? I'm LV19/Lv20 and did not pop up (I did re-install the game :P)


Think it could be Level 23
BUT
I had just reached level 23 when the goals appeared on my device. coincidence or design>not sure
but goal #7 requires level 23 for the Ice Cream. And I have come to a complete stop at goal #13 because the Light Armor unlocks at Level 25.

sorry, that is all I can tell you about my experience so far.

You may be onto something there. I am in the process of doing these goals on my phone, which is a level 30 kingdom, but my kids, who are playing on an iPad 1, are at level 20 and have not received the goals.

Which raises another question. Are these limited time goals like Valentine's, or will they be there when they get to x level?

Hi Everyone,
I have not received the Anniversary Quest on my IPhone. I received it on my IPad days ago. I visited neighbors, closed the app, & deleted and reinstalled it and still no anniversary quest. I am at level 24 and am currently working on the Translator's Tome for the Tablet of Tabermum and Thurston's Thirst. Any suggestions?

It looks better at level 3. I put mine away from the cows so they won't trod on it and crush it. :)

I think i may have discovered what triggers the anniversary goals. In my 2nd kingdom today i just finished construction of Thurston's Fort and the anniversary goal popped up immediately. I'm midway through level 25, but it was definately started by finishing the fort construction. There is a chance that it started due to the fact i finished the other goal which opened up a slot for the anniversary goals i guess. But it would make sense that Thurston being ready would be a requirement.

Thurston doesn't even get a plaque or a flag or standard in the end? Looks like Castle Story really has fallen down the list of games that TL releases content for.

I'm on 25 on my other account too and had been waiting for an answer as to why it didn't come on this account. Thank you for writing this! It's because I haven't even finished the troll kind goals. Didn't even make the ballista yet and it's been there for about two weeks! Can't expand to the pit anytime soon, so I guess this will sit there. I just got the goal for Sabina but no chance or start on her either too. Oh well. At least I'm making the gold bars for my decoration thingy.

That would have been a nice touch, considering the size of the arena that Thurston had to squeeze himself into. I've got mine placed next to my chickens, and by comparison the horse Thurston would have been riding couldn't have been larger than my chicken's toenail.

Where is the Jousting Arena? Under goals it says to marvel at the arena...it is now checked but I see no arena. Then it wants me to upgrade to level 2, I select GO and it takesme to "Special" but only a glimmerdust trove is there. Again, why don't I see the "beginnings " of the Jousting Arena?

Will you be fixing the problem with this quest line? Will the next updates be available only to newer devices as well?

I just want to know if I should keep investing my time and energy in this game or not. I'm at level 30 and no goals as of now, only upgrading buildings...

Does the jousting arena ever drop anything more than coins? At 800 coins it's not really worth collecting from.

I got a light armor yesterday. Guess it doesn't do anything else except give money and/or items. No actual jousting at all. That would be great if we could challenge others (maybe community members) to joust. So now it's just gonna sit there.

To brew the potion, you just have to collect from Ivy's hut when it's ready. So just wait for it to be ready to collect!

Agreed. The big anniversary quest turned out to be VERY anti-climatic. Honestly, I expected it to be more challenging to complete, and I expected gems (as a reward).

The level 3 arena occasionally drops longswords and light armor. (I don't remember if the lower-level arenas dropped these items.)

I got for sure a Light Armor and almost sure also a Longsword on Jousting Arena Lvl1.

Hi All!

Today we released a big update for Castle Story (I'm sure you all have seen it by now!)
We want to thank you all for playing the game and we hope you have as much fun playing it as we had making it.

Here is a summary on the update:
- New Quest Series regarding the one year birthday of the Kingdom
- New Asset: Jousting Arena (cool thing about this asset is that it'll change visually when you update it, give it a try!)
- Thurston will redeem himself in this story (will he win the Jousting Tournament in your honor?!)
- 7 New Fortunes have been added to the Fortune Teller Building

Here are some photos of the Jousting Arena upgrade states:

We have lots of new updates coming for the game, so stick around! I'll try to post regularly with sneak peaks into new content =)

Have a good weekend all! And thank you again for your support!!

I used gems to avoid building the arena, now I have to upgrade the arena that I don't have to level 2.
I can't find the arena in the market, what should I do? And I can't use gems to past the quest to upgrade it...

Nothing you can do that I know of at this point. Unless this item returns, you'll have to leave it as an unfinished quest.
