I can't speak for TL and I am not even going to pretend that I understand what has been said by others on this issue because I will be wrong in someone's opinion.

So to clarify I am not placing myself above anyone because I buy gems, and I do care about the feelings of others who are not as lucky as I am. This is just my personal opinion, no one else's, and I am making no claims to anything but my opinion. I am making no claims or statements concerning drop rates.

I believe that the Sister, Sister goal is a long term goal and will not disappear when the main story line continues.

Cheers and good luck fellow players who love to play Castle Story also!

Why in the world would you think it wouldnt be available? this is a ARC storyline.. meaning its available to all players once certain levels and Goals are reached/completed.. i see no reason why there is confusion on this.

I'm sorry I thought the "Sister, Sister" goal was something to preoccupy us while we wait for the story line to continue. In game it sounded like it would go away once the story line continued (and if you finished it before then got the gem prize). :/

I was going to say potions, but then I realised that if it's "potion lessons" then the goal will probably be to make them rather than already have them, so more likely raw ingredients for them (or of course they could be new potions we won't know the ingredients for).

Dunno though, probably completely wrong, most people (including me) were way off when guessing for the dragons haha......maybe the best thing to start stockpiling is gems! Purple cow here I come....

Maybe we'll need dragon scales to make tons of Mythic Essences.

We would need vast quantities of Manticore Whiskers, Dragon Scales and Enchanted Essences (made from Mermaid Scales/Glimmerdust)....yeah...., that type of high resource requirement sounds *cough* evil *cough*, err..challenging.

I'm gonna stock up on whiskers and mermaid scales....

I agree with all jim23cash saying! The support, sneak peeks, updates and follow-ups that TL has been providing are truly awesome! This is game has been highly-addictive, sleep-depriving and yet immensely enjoyable game I can't put down without a fight:). I love all the story lines, rich and witty dialogues (the references to pop culture (esp. game of thrones' mother of dragons) are just hilarious and have made me keep coming back to this game. I just wish I had found this game sooner!

I'm planning on switching an Android phone (it's too bad TL doesn't make CS available on Android. Please, please, please bring CS to Android!!! You can consider it "another Expansion" :). But i think I'll keep my old iphone as an insurance so that I can keep playing....

Thank you TL for being so awesome! Never stop with all these story and quest updates, please!!!!

Yes, that's what I'm thinking, make several of all the 3 types of essence and have spare ingredients for all. For the mythic kind it's the whiskers that are holding me back, only got one manticore :(

I'm curious. How much ice cream is enough? I keep about 40 pints on hand (I assume those are pints - the adult single serving size), but I'm wondering if I should try to bump that up? How much is adequate?

The ice cream truck drives through my neighborhood *constantly* during the summer. I'm of two minds. Do I go out there screaming like a maniac for them to shut it off, or do I run out there screaming like a maniac for ice cream? :)

NorthWoodsKingdom
05-31-14, 03:21 PM
I'm gonna try to get my ice-cream up to 50, at least.
...and I have hardly any lemonades made right now.

My n'hood ice-cream truck gives me the eebie jeebies... Creepy looking guy driving it lol. No thanks, I'll pass on his popsicles LOL.

I'm also thinking in addition to petals & possibly dyes (will we get a new color? Orange, green or pink??)...
That floral _ _ _ _ _ _ is probably gonna need some floral GLOW.

Cool it down.. just build up resources.. we learned a hard lesson about Piles of Seeds and Living Wood.. next update will deplete another resource close or kinda close.. i say make a big ole pile of everyday resources and do what you can to avoid Belladonna.. its a trick.

The skunkupie is probably because of the Fortune Teller goal. Do you have the Fortune Teller Tent? It is from the goal called Ivy's Hungry Tummy. I've given up on that goal because I have done so many of that trade and never get a skunkupie! Lol

The skunkupie is needed for one of the fortune teller goals, but it's origins are from another goal - I forget what it was, but it was ages ago.

Looks like I'm legt behind on this event: level 37 and Griselda is still an evil queen, so don't have the trade with Belladonna or the Griselda's castle. While I had all the luck in the world with the Dragon Egg even (got all 3 eggs within 12 adventures, tho I started with just 1 dragon scale and no dragons, and no I didn't spent gems on adventures or eggs), I feel a bit Sad I can't even participatie because I'm not far enough in the story-line.

Bit saddening.

How can you say it's not as high as the dragon event, when you need to be much further in the story line in order to participate in this event?

For the 3 dragon eggs I only needed 1 dragon scale, for this I need a lot more: Griselda, Belladonna, a garden, a castle. All of them I don't have.

Well, I don't know any more than anyone else about this quest, but I had thought it was very much like the original Valentine's Day botany quest where we had to collect a specific number for each of many different V-Day plants that also were crafted with random results.

If it is structured like that, this is more like a side quest to give us something long-term to do, and it won't go away until you finish it whether it is 6 weeks, 6 months or 2 years. :)

I think of it that way, too. It's like a stew, where it just sits on the back burner. You stir it every once in a while when you manage to get the right plants together to send on another trade. I kinda like having it. Gives me another thing to track and a focus for all the glimmerbits.

Interesting.

Oh no, please no more trades! Neither Belladonna Trade was worth it and the Inscriptions were such a disaster that they were forced upon us in a double whammy with Ivy and demanding 5 more when many barely had one done!

At best the Trades are a method of resource dumping so we don't feel like we are totally wasting energy if we are full of milk but need hides, but all we get are trade tickets that are not worth using on trades themselves and are useless to those of us who have expanded to the edges of our kingdom and have maximized their use on buildings that require them.

New shorter than a day adventures that are similar to the Pyre Caverns Adventure would be great of they were part of the story line and were permanent, not ending when the quest does. They would be handy for those of us who get updates at different times or days and hold off from starting a day long adventure if there is a possibility of a new adventure being introduced in an update. Shorter Adventures might make us feel like we are a bit more in control of managing our Knights and their usefulness to our kingdoms.

And please, can we get back to a story line where we as rulers are at least involved in it? This was such a fun game when it was Castle Story, but since Kaz left right after we invested a huge amount of resources in Troll Related buildings and such, we have been bystanders for witches to suck our resources without involving us at all except to give, give, give in a story that seems to have transformed Castle Story into Witch Story, with a side order of short term dragons that further sucked us dry from resources that never paid off even in the three dragons that only some of us were able to obtain.

Sorry, but I have little hope that Fairies will save us since they have been unwilling to even speak to us despite the very nice Respite we built for them. Flowers sound cheery, but I suspect that if things follow as they have for the last two months, there has been a huge let down for most of us where we get little if anything to show for our efforts.

Still, there is hope that the excellent story that has been regrettably absent from the last two months of updates might be revisited before it is forgotten entirely, and we know TL can do it because they put together this incredible game, and they can save it if that is the plan. We can hope so! I agree that Farenvale sounds interesting!

Just what I have been thinking. Farenvale sounds like new quests and new trades waiting for us in the future :)

Interesting.

According to the dialogue from one of the quests in the three lesson quest line Ivy and Belladonna appear to be from (or at least have spent time in) Farenvale.

According to dialogue I just got after my first plant trade (right at giving that first inscription away), Bella Donna went to school in Farenvale and visited Greselda daily, to learn stuff from her.

From a couple of dialogues between Ivy and Greselda, and Ivy and Belladonna (that appeared before the Sister, Sister quest.)

What inquiring minds should probably want to know is...:

1). Greselda had a house in Farenvale..., and not a castle, so she wasn't an evil queen back then. What happened in the 5 years between Farenvale and the Glimmergate that caused Greselda to become evil and go through the Glimmergate?

2). Where exactly does the Glimmergate go to?

3). What's the story behind the Glimmer Golems, and their connection to Greselda?

4). Did Belladonna actually ever get lessons from Greselda? If not, then is there more history between the two that will be revealed?

3) Week Long Event
-This will happen near the end of the month
-It's almost summer-- we see lots of colorful flowers dangling from a beautiful structure. It's the perfect spot for lounging on bright cushions with friends
-Floral _ _ _ _ _ _



So for the floral gazebo/wigwam/T.A.R.D.I.S./diadem/whatever else has been suggested, I'm guessing we'll need petals or have to go on a quest like we did for the pergola. If there are to be cushions, that would involve wool or hides and dye. And of course with it being a "structure" we will be needing building materials. I'm curious, what is everyone stocking up on?

And will there be lemonade???

1) Ivy and the Black Cat Guild
-Ivy bothers Lady Greselda for potion brewing lessons. Will Lady Greselda grant her request?
-This story arc continues first week of June
-You do not have to complete "Sister, Sister", but you do need to complete "Wish You Were Here" to start this quest

I wonder if there would be an update tomorrow. 3) seems to happen next week, they said "near the end of the month"
But what would be tomorrow?

- Again a "teaser" quest that suggests us what to stock up for next week?

- Also, it seems to the that quest 2) is not completed yet, perhaps we get more details (new quest I mean)

So what do you think?

I hope that tomorrow we'll see the second part of Lila and Azalea and I further hope that it's as easy as the first part. I go on a weeklong vacation on Saturday, so hopefully I can complete this week's update til then.

If the weeklong event starts next week I'd only miss two days...

It would be awesome if the event is something similar to the St. Patric's Day event. Please no drama like that Dragon thing.

I'm sure it won't be - I was just being snotty. :)

Oh, and I think the answer to the big photo question is you have to use photobucket or something like that, but I'm not the last word in tech knowledge. I'm not even the first word, lol.

We could need anything that might have been traded for trade tickets. I'll just max out on as much as I can including milk and eggs.

After my experience with the Pyre Cavern event, I have no intention of doing any preparation apart from enjoying the game and playing as normal. After stocking up on stuff for last time, the key item was something I didn't have and had no way of getting so any preparation was pointless.

If I have enough of the right stuff, all well and good. If not I'll just do what I can. If it turns out to need an item I have no way of getting without spending gems, like the dragon scales last time, I'll be really annoyed though.

Beginning to rethink the flower thing.. I am sure it will be collection that is needed but how about the crafting part? I cannot believe they would require us to craft different kinda flower using up stuff that IVY demands. Who knows.. like said right above.. the last few have caught me by surprise.. but I am maxed on flowers and preparing to burn lots of Energy(no Alicorns) tapping on flowers. Also thinking hides/wool to craft the pillows. And the one hint about Flowers "dangling" perks my interest. Maybe a new crafting item to make string/rope.. maybe Hemp will be the item needed.. hmm that would be a interesting new Plant to allow us to gain that resource.

I have gems ready to spend so I wonder if a new lovely item is in store...? :)
Am not far along in the quest lines so haven't been able to do anything new since the dragon event. Maybe I will be able to participate..
Either way, would like to see new goodies. From the last bunch I got the rose trellis and it's perfect entrance to conservatory and greenhouses.

...if there's nothing new for me I'm going to jump at the mithril dragon and make him mine. That's the resource I need the most now to move ahead and it's slooowww going getting it.

Also, I leave my kitchen etc ready. And we will see what needed..
