View Full Version : Castle Story: 9/25/14 The Faerie Bridge

Hi, all!

In this week's update, the faeries give you a new construction project to work on. It's a Faerie Bridge that they'll be able to use for easier travel to and from your kingdom (which, for you, means a new source of Fey Crystals, faerie building materials, Faeriebulb Seeds, and more).

Of course, building anything that magical is going to require some preparation. You spend your days working on the Bridge, but something is coming in and undoing your hard work during the night. What could it be?

The update will go live at 12:00 PDT, and to start this week's content, you must have completed Start of Something Beautiful, the last quest from last week (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?73208-Castle-Update-9-18-14-Faerie-Workshop).

Have fun!

I can't start either as I'm try to get 3 more faerie pastes to finish building the workshop. They don't drop every time from the adventure either. So this could take me another week or more.
Ah well, guess I'll go collect from everything I neglected this morning.

09-25-14, 12:12 PM
Haven't even finished "Sister, Sister" yet. There are too many rare items required, like glimmer shard and glimmer fragments. So - if no good fairy will make these drops more frequent I will probably be done with this old quest in december. I just hope that the halloween quest and christmas quest will not depend on having finished any of the previous quests. And that I won't need any more glimmer stuff or dark plants ...

I'm going to wait on the 2nd workshop. Everything to build it takes forever, unless you already have enough for the second one. I still need 4each. It looks like at least the first item doesn't take too long, just 3 hours.

What if we need those blocks, glue, and beams for the faerie bridge? It'll take forever to make them again or even get from trades and adventures. I'm just a little concerned about resources. It takes a lot of fey crystals to make that escense. Last week, I had 99. I'm already down to 67, and going fast!

Eww...First we sacrafice jarred Fairies to make a potion to prepare the ground?

These Sparks are evil. I don't want to kill faries to make it easier for the evil fairies to get into my kingdom.

Can I join the group trying to stop this bridge from being built? If I don't build the bridge will I still be able to play the game or is this bridge compulsory?

I have long wanted to release the captive faries. My Ruler's eyes glaze over every time a Spark shows up. She seems drugged or brainwashed. They call themselves Faries, but now they are using their own as ingredients?

This game is going the wrong direction for me. I don't want to use faries as ingredients, sorry.

Can TL answer please? Is there an alternatitive to this? I see no reason to stay if this is what the story is descending into. Worse than slavery which someone suggested. Not playing this until there is an answer and if it is mandatory to use faries as ingredients, I am leaving. Or at least not playing anymore. I might visit my friends on my wall, but I stop playing the storyline right now. There needs to be an alternative to sacrificing captive fairies.

There is not even a guarantee that they will be euthanized humanely. Just toss them in the cute workshop and they come out liquified. I want nothing to do with this!

Don't worry! You're only using some of their Faerie dust to craft it. No Faeries are being killed in the making of this potion! :)

GoodyTwoShoes2
09-25-14, 01:33 PM
After you give the 3 potions, you have to give another one, plus 4 "Spelled Stones" which you also make in the Faerie Workshop. Each one takes 2 hours and you need 10 Stone, 3 Glimmer Shards (the red ones) & 1 Preparation Potion OR you can skip the 4 Spelled Stones for a total of 20 gems. I think the Prep. Potion was 5 but I had made an extra before I "gave" the 3 to the ground. I am sure someone will get the next step because I have to make the Spelled Stones. I had 103 of the Faerie jars and I had made a ton of the Potion so that helped. Cheers!

room27
09-25-14, 01:40 PM
What happens to the faeries in the jar if only their dust is collected? Are they still held captive? Finally set free? Are they revered amongst the other faeries for their sacrifice? Cast out by the others for letting themselves be captured in the first place? Does anyone pay them for giving up their dust? If faerie dust is a commodity, shouldn't they get paid for it?

So many questions...

Not the potential 'killing of Faeries' you understand but the building a bridge. I'm going to imagine each faerie flying away free after the 'Faerie Dust' has been nabbed.

Good to know, thank you!

TL, is there any chance you could double the drop-rate of shards & fragments from the glimmergate???
As it is I don't have enough to make dark plants AND do these current goals, even collecting every 2 hours.
Are we at least going to get a new source of them soon?

rosym47
09-25-14, 02:39 PM
When the fairies in the jars are sent to the workshop they are released to scatter fairy dust into the potion. Then they hide in the thatched roof of the workshop until all is quiet and the ruler is asleep before they escape. Once they are free they go from flower to flower taking in nectar to build up their strength.
Fairies that are free from jars will then learn self defence and how to use glass cutters to make sure they don't get caught again.

I'm having trouble drumming up sympathy for the fairies. They have taken over the storyline and are making constant demands on my poor understaffed kitchens in addition to requiring rare materials. I'm looking forward to seeing how the bridge gets tampered with. However, please don't tamper with anything requiring glimmer shards/fragments to be remade!!
I think it's time to explore a bit more of Griselda's story.....we really need another source for those glimmer bits, since the fairies seem to have developed an addiction to them.

I'm still about a week away from finishing last week's update at the rate I'm going. Hopefully they won't have any time limited events requiring this week's update (or the Sister, Sister) goal for that matter any time soon. I can't imagine the blowback they'd get from that, not to mention the lost revenue.

OK, now, the next step is "Another Mystery"

1. Bury Another Spelled Stone 1 or Skip with 5 gems

2. Plant Enchanted Seeds (Faerie Workshop) 5 or Skip with 25 gems
a. 5 Faeriebulb Seeds
b. 2 Living Wood
c. 4 Faeries' Murmur

It says this is the Final Step.

It may take me a bit now but luckily I had already started a "spare" Spelled Stone so I gemmed it to finish and so I could see what I needed for the Enchanted Seeds. Probably won't post again tonight because I need to make these Enchanted Seeds and they take 2 hrs for each one. :^) Linda "Twilight"

Now I am wishing I had gone ahead and built another Faerie Workshop. I had tons of supplies because I have been doing the adventure since it first appeared. I did not need anything else and I figured we would need the supplies but I thought I would need them to Upgrade the Faerie Workshop I already had so I didn't build another one. Maybe I will need them for the bridge?????

55lee55
09-25-14, 06:45 PM
Don't worry! You're only using some of their Faerie dust to craft it. No Faeries are being killed in the making of this potion! :)

Then do we keep the jar fairy in our inventory? I don't like where this is heading not a bit. I don't want more fairies in my kingdom until I can officially guarantee the freedom and safety of all inhabitants in my kingdom. Plus all we do is make more fairy stuff for the evil ones who we keep sucking up to and they are bringing all of the neon and slime in.

I am not playing this. It seems some of my neighbors are equally tired of these nasty little Sparks. We still have no proof who they are and why would we want to build a bridge to allow more of them in? Not one of the items I have received from the fairies is animated. A dead bird in a cage? They keep their bretheren in jars? I don't buy this fairy dust thing. Althea can bring us fairy dust if we need it. She must have some. Put her to work. Why isn't she obese given the amount of food we have given her? Have her shake her booty over the workshop chimney if we need fairy dust. I am not handing over jars with fairies in them.

TL hasn't answered my question. Can we continue to play the game if we just ignore the fairy storyline? Or do we need to delete and find a game that makes sense? This used to be my favorite game, but this update with the fairy in a jar being given and a liquid coming out that we are going to pour on the ground to make mud? This did it. I don't want these things in my kingdom, or their bridge or anything else with slime. Where is the Castle Story? If TL is obsessed with fairies why not make a Fairy Story game?

Bring back the Castle Story! If the fairies are here to stay, put players like me out of our misery so we can decide what direction we are going. I am not sure I am going along with this fairy thing and sorry but there is nothing about fairy dust in the game. A jarred fairy goes in and a liquid comes out. Release an update allowing us to open the jar and release the fairy before handing over the fairy jar and I might reconsider, but I still see no need for a bridge to get more fairies! I don't want them here, at least until they release the captives, not liquify them.

Plus I would need to see some benefit from them and since the fairies came, the best things about this game left. No more animations, no more setting an alarm for when the next update is due because the updates have becaome so boring that if I am a few days late getting started it doesn't matter. Every new update except the one lifting the limit on walls has required me to rearrange my kingdom, not to show off something new and delightful, but to camoflage it or hide it behind trees. Even the cute workshop doesn't act like a workshop, no animations, and it only makes the things it is made from, until it became a torture chamber for jarred fairies. Exactly how to you get fairy dust from them TL?

How about an outhouse with a one way flush where we can start with flushing Althea back to where she came from along with the slime?

After seeing today's update I am stopping all Plume Hive Adventures, or anything to do with the fairies. I have been sending my knights out on that Adventure from both the Castle and Barracks, and never got a gift box. Not one thing I have from a fairy is worth having. But they take take take!

So TL, answer my question. Can I still play if I don't build this bridge? Yes or no? I am not the only one sick and tired of this fairy thing. When will we get back to the Castle Story? I don't mind waiting an month or two while those who like the fairies euthenize their captives and build fairy bridges. But there are a lot of side stories that can be skipped without stopping a player from continuing with the game. Is this a side story that can be safely ignored, or is it required? I am not trying to take fairies away from those who want to play their games, but I don't want to play. I am willing to wait, but I need to know if this is a passing phase or a mandatory step to move forward.

People are asking me because I normally spend through but I am not even starting this one. I need some straight answers from TL and if the jar fairies dust is used then it should have asked for that. Can someone who has given the jar to the workshop gotten it back with the fairy safe? Please post if so. Thanks!

The previous update caused apathy in my kingdom. This one is causing disgust. I have never felt good about the jar faries but I assumed that someday we would be fighting to free them, not turn them into mud. I thought the comment last week about making them slaves was gallows humor and I didn't expect TL to stoop that low. I was right. They stooped lower. I don't want anything more to do with faries unless it is to wave goodbye to them.

But first free the jar faries! Please!

Where is Kaz? We built an entire troll area and the next week Kaz and the trolls all disappeared. Is this what TL is doing with all this fairy stuff? If so, can I just let those who want to play with fairies, finish up their games then come back and play again when Kaz shows up? I want to be on the side that is tearing down the bridges. How about splitting the game here TL, and let us chose which side we want to be on, the side building the bridge or the one's tearing it down?

At first I couldn't wait for Thursdays, then I didn't care, but now if this is an example of the direction we are going I am going to start dreading Thursdays.

Does anyone know what the gem cost of a faerie essence is?? If you didn't have it & needed to use gems instead?

I'm thinking about skipping the stones (no pun intended) as it only costs 5 gems each & will save me using up my faerie essences.

These storylines are core story for sure, so my bet is we do have to do them to progress. I agree with Carolyn above, lots of possibilities.

TL hasn't answered my question. Can we continue to play the game if we just ignore the fairy storyline? Or do we need to delete and find a game that makes sense? This used to be my favorite game, but this update with the fairy in a jar being given and a liquid coming out that we are going to pour on the ground to make mud? This did it. I don't want these things in my kingdom, or their bridge or anything else with slime. Where is the Castle Story? If TL is obsessed with fairies why not make a Fairy Story game?

Bring back the Castle Story! If the fairies are here to stay, put players like me out of our misery so we can decide what direction we are going. I am not sure I am going along with this fairy thing and sorry but there is nothing about fairy dust in the game. A jarred fairy goes in and a liquid comes out. Release an update allowing us to open the jar and release the fairy before handing over the fairy jar and I might reconsider, but I still see no need for a bridge to get more fairies! I don't want them here, at least until they release the captives, not liquify them.

Plus I would need to see some benefit from them and since the fairies came, the best things about this game left. No more animations, no more setting an alarm for when the next update is due because the updates have becaome so boring that if I am a few days late getting started it doesn't matter. Every new update except the one lifting the limit on walls has required me to rearrange my kingdom, not to show off something new and delightful, but to camoflage it or hide it behind trees. Even the cute workshop doesn't act like a workshop, no animations, and it only makes the things it is made from, until it became a torture chamber for jarred fairies. Exactly how to you get fairy dust from them TL?

How about an outhouse with a one way flush where we can start with flushing Althea back to where she came from along with the slime?

After seeing today's update I am stopping all Plume Hive Adventures, or anything to do with the fairies. I have been sending my knights out on that Adventure from both the Castle and Barracks, and never got a gift box. Not one thing I have from a fairy is worth having. But they take take take!

So TL, answer my question. Can I still play if I don't build this bridge? Yes or no? I am not the only one sick and tired of this fairy thing. When will we get back to the Castle Story? I don't mind waiting an month or two while those who like the fairies euthenize their captives and build fairy bridges. But there are a lot of side stories that can be skipped without stopping a player from continuing with the game. Is this a side story that can be safely ignored, or is it required? I am not trying to take fairies away from those who want to play their games, but I don't want to play. I am willing to wait, but I need to know if this is a passing phase or a mandatory step to move forward.

People are asking me because I normally spend through but I am not even starting this one. I need some straight answers from TL and if the jar fairies dust is used then it should have asked for that. Can someone who has given the jar to the workshop gotten it back with the fairy safe? Please post if so. Thanks!

The previous update caused apathy in my kingdom. This one is causing disgust. I have never felt good about the jar faries but I assumed that someday we would be fighting to free them, not turn them into mud. I thought the comment last week about making them slaves was gallows humor and I didn't expect TL to stoop that low. I was right. They stooped lower. I don't want anything more to do with faries unless it is to wave goodbye to them.

But first free the jar faries! Please!

Where is Kaz? We built an entire troll area and the next week Kaz and the trolls all disappeared. Is this what TL is doing with all this fairy stuff? If so, can I just let those who want to play with fairies, finish up their games then come back and play again when Kaz shows up? I want to be on the side that is tearing down the bridges. How about splitting the game here TL, and let us chose which side we want to be on, the side building the bridge or the one's tearing it down?

At first I couldn't wait for Thursdays, then I didn't care, but now if this is an example of the direction we are going I am going to start dreading Thursdays.

I came back to CS several weeks ago after taking a break, but I haven't really gotten back into the forum again. But - Oh, 55lee! When I saw this, I had to post! Thank you! Thank you! I haven't laughed this hard in a long time on here! Hilarious! I love it! I just can't stop laughing!!! Thanks Again!!!!! You so funny!!!! :) :) :)

Seriously? We are whacking fang beasts, skunkupines and boars, fought trolls, etc..but a fairy in a jar that more than likely flies away as soon as the jar is poured into the workshop..and is probably undoing the bridge work is unacceptable? One can't seriously say that all in a kingdom is safe when teeth and fur are piling up in inventory. Rather humorous IMHO.

So thrilled you came back Oliver!

Glad some see the humor in all this. I find it humorous that the same people that bash me about caring about euthanizing fairies complain endlessly that TL is asking us to use rare resources in several places. They get their skivvies in a knot over that, lol.

I don't seem to be having the resource issues some are. I have been essentially done with Sister, Sister for months, but have not sent in the last Inscription because I don't want to lose my quest book again, although now that this fairy nonsense is going on I can probably collect my gems on the Inscriptions. In my opinion Sister was not challenging enough. I had a few short term shortages but nothing major like others had, and finished too quickly. I am stuck with 15 extra Rafflesia plants, even after doing the trade several more times.

Don't see any reason to hurry about this fairy deal. I can sit it out as I find it boring more than anything else, and if the game ever does begin to show promise I can always buy my way past the fairy thing. Meanwhile I have been looking for more interesting games, like CS used to be for me. Not bailing out here, but not spending as much time and money. I understand that some find the fairy storyline interesting. I personally liked Sister, Sister. We all find different things interesting. I was attempting to add some humor to the constant griping about rare glimmer bits.

Apparently griping about glimmerbits is more acceptable to some than to point out the inconsistancies in the way CS has handled fairies. Gripe away folks. This game is still boring me with this fairy stuff. I vote with my money. If it becomes interesting I will start spending money again. Obviously a lot of people love the faires and they can support the game now. My money comes back when the game interests me, not when it interests others. That is how business works. If TL wants my money they will produce an interesting storyline that makes sense to me.

They can do quite well on other people's money with this neon green slime whining gluttonous fairy nonsense. You who like it can pay for it. I paid thousands of dollars when I was happy with the game. Others who like this storyline are welcome to step in and take over the financial support of TL, and I am sure you will. TL doesn't care which of us pays, as long as someone does.

Personally, I don't want more fairies in my kingdom. I will sit back and see what they do to everyone else's kingdom before I continue on with this.

Go right ahead those who find this fairy storyline interesting. I can learn from your mistakes if I sit back and observe. Good luck and enjoy! Spend your money so I don't have to.

It just hasn't been the same in the forum without you Ollie! Welcome back!

I am curious, i find it alright for 55lee55 to complain about the fairyline, but why make it a "humane" approach for the fairies? Why not for all the slain skunkupines and other beasts that have been explicitly killed, and not the fairies that have been supposedly killed? It is kinda cruel to keep them in jars and "use" them... But, whats so special about them and not the beasts we kill in game?

Eveyone has had a dislike to a part of the game at some point. The slime and new artwork included, not to say the icon when it was ponyland. They changed it. They did hear us out. So i think its excellent to voice our opinions, but i find it questionable when it sounds like youre a fairy rights activist. It makes it even sound laughable ( like some found). If it were a point of euthanasia and whatnot, then id suggest coherence, not only fairies deserve it, slain beasts do too. If its to voice your dissatisfaction with the fairy stories, then just say so like you did on later posts. Some people will stop playing and paying, for whqtever reasons. If you choose to do so, its your right. As well as voicing why you did. I just kinda feel it sounded like "hay im on a diet, so remove the cake from the kitchen recipes", and not something more coherent. Just my opinion, and not trying to be rude to anyone, specially not to 55lee.

Sincerely, i hope a new upcoming update is more to your liking. I feel tl has done a good job so far, even with some mistakes, and trust they will keep on listening to us and satisfying all our varied gaming needs in a single app.

Haven't even finished "Sister, Sister" yet. There are too many rare items required, like glimmer shard and glimmer fragments. So - if no good fairy will make these drops more frequent I will probably be done with this old quest in december. I just hope that the halloween quest and christmas quest will not depend on having finished any of the previous quests. And that I won't need any more glimmer stuff or dark plants ...

I have only finished 14 out of 20 of the trades for Sister, Sister! I feel like I have been working on it forever, and now the Fairy Workshop Trade uses Glimmer Shards, too. Good grief! I want the game to be a challenge, but I don't want it to be impossible! I'm close to hitting the Delete button -- I'd hate to, I've been playing since nearly the beginning. But I want a game that's fun and entertaining, not one that causes me stress!

TL--please make these goals a bit easier to attain so that we are not pulling out our collective hair! Rare drops shouldn't mean practically never...

Why is it so hard to deal with a goal that isn't reachable within a few days or even weeks? Rome and Achen weren't also build on the same day, and your house neither. Just enjoy building up, slowly, steadily, piece by piece, bit by bit.

Frankly I like it that these goals keep me bussy for more than a few days. Yes, I could feel stressed over taking so long, I have 3 inscriptions, and still am 7 Faerie Blocks, 8 Beams and 7 Paste short of even finishing my first Faerie workshop, but I know, for sure, that I'll get there some day. And then I'll be happy: I've worked for it, and am rewarded. Yes, I could skip parts with gems, but is that as rewarding? No. Then it's simply giving money, that's easy, that's not planning, thinking, dedication...

Ok, TL needs money too, but I'm happy I can play everything without paying anything! (tho I did 1 time buy a starter-pack, both because I liked the items, and because I think TL deserves the money).

Please, stop whining... it's depressing...

I am curious, i find it alright for 55lee55 to complain about the fairyline, but why make it a "humane" approach for the fairies? Why not for all the slain skunkupines and other beasts that have been explicitly killed, and not the fairies that have been supposedly killed? It is kinda cruel to keep them in jars and "use" them... But, whats so special about them and not the beasts we kill in game?

Eveyone has had a dislike to a part of the game at some point. The slime and new artwork included, not to say the icon when it was ponyland. They changed it. They did hear us out. So i think its excellent to voice our opinions, but i find it questionable when it sounds like youre a fairy rights activist. It makes it even sound laughable ( like some found). If it were a point of euthanasia and whatnot, then id suggest coherence, not only fairies deserve it, slain beasts do too....

Well, let me see if I can simplify this.

The beasts do not have a relationship with our Ruler and we are not spending months kissing up to a few of them while keeping others captive in jars. We don't talk to them, build buildings for them, have statues of them and we do humanely kill them (I suppose there could be some who take a day or two to put down a Fangbeast, but I imagine most just kill them when we catch them stealing eggs). Some of us, myself included, "park" a beast in an out of the way spot to keep from tripping over them while harvesting strawberries, but we don't have a relationship with any with the exception of Pepe. Pepe is a different issue. Much as we may hunt and kill wolves who kill our cattle but we may keep a dog as a pet. We have a special relationship with Pepe, but kill other Skunkupines.

I feel uncomfortable keeping some fairies in jars while sucking up to others. They speak and we give them things and apparently they are a higher life form than the beasts of the forest. When we fought the trolls it was battles, not wanton killing. We even helped one of their kind and made treaties with them. We don't keep them in jars. We don't treat some as sentient beings and others as ingredients. We do treat the fairies as if some are worthy of building Respites and having tea paries for a select group, while we keep others in jars. I considered that unfair. I consider that liquifying some fairies and turning them into potions to please other fairies as supporting genocide. Fairies talk to us and trade with us. Magic or not, they are the ones requesting that we liquify some of their own species to pour on the ground! Sorry Pika, but I read the description of the Jar Fairy and it said someting like "A small fairy in a jar". It creeps me out that my ruler is so quick to agree to use some fairies as ingredients, nothing mentioning using dust from them, just give a Jar Fairy along with other ingredients.

I would be feeling this way if we were using captive trolls as ingredients. Sorry, if you can't tell the difference between a sentient being and a wild beast Elen. I am a carnivore. I eat meat. I have pets that I don't eat. I also don't eat other people's pets. I send my husband or the county out to kill gophers when they undermine my property, but only because they cannot be live trapped. But I do understand and support those who kill wild animals that attack people or their property. The beasts, with the exception of Pepe, are in the same category as wild animals who prey on crops, livestock, or the inhabitants of my kingdom. I don't torture them or keep them in jars, I hit them with my sword until they go poof.

In real life I don't eat my neighbors or trading partners in other countries, those of other races than I, or those I have tea with. I don't make their prisoners into bridge building materials. Sadly, human beings have stooped so low in the past and present in real life. I don't like seeing this type of thing in games I play. I believe it sends a signal that it is okay to abuse some to please others of the same species. Don't we have enough cruelty in the world and on the news? I see this step taken by TL as a tacit agreement with those who have no problems killing thier own for any reason. I am not throwing out the cake Elen. I am saying I don't believe it is okay to turn your trading partener's prisoner's into building materials. I object to see this in what until this update has been a non political, enjoyable fantasy game. I think it crossed a line with this update.

Yes, this is just a game. No, TL is not the moral police nor should they be. But in human society our games tend to reflect reality to some extent and always have. TL has chosen to reflect one of the ugliest and lowest things society can stoop to. I have chosen to object.

There is a difference in the game itself, between the beasts we fight when they get into our strawberries amd the fairies we erect statutues to and have tea parties with and send our knights to their lands to trade with them. They also keep captives of their own kind in jars. Direboars, Fangbeasts, and Skunkupines do none of these things. They are beasts. The fairies are sentient, albiet magic beings. In the game we have an ongoing relationship with a group of them.

If you cannot tell the difference Elen, I cannot help you. I am not offended by your post. I pity you that you are unable to tell the difference between beasts and sentient beings, even in a game. But you did ask why the fairies are different from the beasts we kill, and I have answered you as to how it appears to me. Others may have an entirely different view. In real life I have acquaintences who are disgusted that I keep pets and eat meat, and they see both things as equal and abominations. I don't see them as the same because I am not making sandwiches from my dogs. My dogs live better than I do. But there are some who see no difference between my rescue dog sleeping on a pillow next to me in my bed, and my eating a steak and shrimp dinner. So they will not set foot in my home upon my invitation. That is their choice, just as it is my choice to not to support a game that requires me to liquify political captives of those I trade with to build a bridge. Nothing I say will change anyone's mind about anything.

I too have noticed Maguar's absence. I hope it is temporary as I like her and she has great people skills!

Has anyone built the bridge and found out what it gives you? Is it worth paying my way past the jar faries as building materials, or does it get worse from there? Is this worth spending time and money on this storyline? If it get us done with fairies, maybe so. If it keep them coming, maybe not.

As to this whole faerie question, how do we know the jarred faeries aren't a different species? Maybe they're evil? Maybe they're an invasive species (with so many of us being maxed out there's lots of them), and we're helping the environment by capturing them? It was my understanding that the jarred faeries aren't injured when their dust is collected. I prefer to think they're released when the dust is used. Maybe we release them through the gate!

Well, let me see if I can simplify this.

In real life I don't eat my neighbors or trading partners in other countries, those of other races than I, or those I have tea with.
First of all, there's no such thing as "other human races", there's only 1 human race, we're all Homo Sapiens. So, let's skip that.

Second, there is no difference in the chicken you (or other people) keep at home, and the chicken that you eat (we too have bacon in this game). There is a little difference to the pig that lives in the woods (dunno how you call it in English?), the pig that some keep as pet and the pig that's on your plate. And there's no difference between the rabbit you keep, and the rabbit you hunt, but between the dog you keep and the wolf you hunt are little differences. I think it's the same with fearies: you work with some, and some you use for their "eggs" ie, their feary-dust. And perhaps there are different types of fearies, with different concienceness. It's not like Faeries Murmur, Faeries in A Jar, Azaela and the Queen are anything alike... Let it be clear, TL stated clearly that using "Faerie in a jar" was not killing that fearie, but releasing it.

It does however, raise questions on how they got in the jar, and why did we find the jar? Perhaps they were punished like we do with criminals, and after they've given dust, they payed their debts to society? Who are we to judge their society and social ways? If you want to read more about that kind of questions, I can recommend the books of Orson Scott Card, the Ender-Universe, but that's waaaaay off topic :)

Anyway, at first I liked your posts about this, but I think you're taking it way to seriously. It's a game! It's pixels and bits and bytes! I've played far worse games, and my moral standards aren't incriminated. The moment you take games too seriously, something goes wrong...

09-27-14, 06:39 PM
I'm reading about all the complaints and thinking to myself... oh com'on, this update can't be worse than that $50 parking ticket I got a few days ago that I bitterly paid for... (that totally made going to work meeting that day a complete waste of my time since I don't get paid to be there) :p

So I have decided to put Sister, Sister (got 12 inscriptions so far) on hold and do this one first. I do wish we have another source for those glimmer fragments and shards, but since this is not a time-limited quest I figure I'll just take my time. I'm also trying to do the Plume Hive adventure for the faerie building materials instead of doing the trade so that I can use less of the glimmer materials.

I strongly suggest that those who are overly frustrated by the games to simply delete them, because life is too short to spend on getting frustrated over an app. I just recently deleted fairy forest story, restaurant story 2, kingdom clash, and a few of those candy mania variation games because they are either not rewarding enough (breeding the super rare animals in fairy forest story is getting too tedious), getting boring, or too time consuming (kingdom clash). I'm debating about deleting Bakery and Restaurant Story as well, and if I do that it'd leave Castle Story and Mystery Crimes the only storm8 game I play. I'm not gonna let a few game apps dictate my mood and I don't think anyone should. :D

Thanks Kooky, we do get a little bit carried away at times. Will try to stay within the lines. On topic I like the bridge. I had bought two Faerie workshops but only built up one. The bridge is helping with faerie essence which was becoming a drain on resources while I try with the Envoy Plume Adv. To get the supplies to complete the second one.

Yes, we can!

As it happened I was just about to send my knights out, just had to welcome back the knights from the previous adventure first (didn't know anymore which one it was), and when I did it seemed I had send them too on the same mission: already completed when I clicked!
So it ends with the return I guess.

I had the adventure ready to collect and it was fine. Same with the sentry horns, you can craft two and not collect until the right goal and then you only have to wait two more hours to make two more.

What anaboe said. Sentient means someone feels and is aware, which includes ALL the animal kingdom, but none of the creatures in CS are sentient. Their AI is not conscious nor feels. So using sentience to diferentiate renders the point moot. Bad storyline turn? Your call. Hopefully theyll put out an update youll like soon. Put off the artificial life massacre and wait it out for a story change. Im sure TL will keep up the good work snd come up with something new.

Im sorry if ive gone off topic in this thread.

Personally im not particularly fond of the new fairies but i love CS. There are ups and downs to the plot, but the game is awesome. And i do appreciate tl listening to its users, changing the icon because of user feedback and stuff. Weekly updates is wow, when they didnt update for quite a while at first... Thanks for all of this!

From my first bridge collection I received Faeries Murmur, Faeriebulb Seeds and 1 Fey Crystal. I'm not sure how many Murmur and Seeds I got, but I do know I got 1 crystal. If the bridge will be a regular source of Fey Crystal, that will certainly help. The collection time is 9 hours. I really wish it was 8. With 8 I could get 3 collections a day, but now it will be only 2.

Really, what gives with the troll snot already!? When oh when are we gonna lose it??
But even though it's pretty, I truly think a couple of golden opportunities were really missed here...

1. We get a sundial during the Pyre Festival event that is the size of the mothership! ...& then we get a BRIDGE that folks are supposedly gonna walk across when even my baby animals are too big to step foot on it. Just look at it beside the faerie tea party table! The scale is insanely off! I know we complain about the size of some items and lack of room to place them but c'mon, THIS is the item that shoulda been at least a 3x3, not a garden decoration sundial or alien beacon maypole spire. Keeping some semblance of real scale with buildings, decorations etc. in comparison to others of similar kind that are already in play would be sooooooo nice & refreshing. As it is, giants must sit down for a faerie tea party while ONLY teeny tiny faeries can cross their bridge....which leads to the question "Will they come to our kingdoms in swarms but we can't go to the Plume Hive that way... Y'know, since we can't fit on their tiny bridge??"

2. What happened to animation??? Have the designers forgotten how to animate or do the new designers not know how to animate?
There is a waterfall which fills the pond under the bridge! Key word there is waterFALL! ...Not only does it not fall, but it doesn't flow, glisten, ripple...nothing. It's just frozen there, looking more like a sheet, scarf or other piece of draping fabric than it looks like water. We have water splashing around & moving on the sawmill & FALLING from Greselda's fountain so we know it's not impossible. Surely the same (or similar) code could have been used for the bridge's waterfall. *perplexed*

Thanks for the new stuff to make and do but overall, it's a bit disappointing to have a pretty addition in the end (yay!) only to discover it's in a really odd miniature scale with a stagnant, motionless water feature. (sigh!)....oh, and there's STILL troll snot on everything (grr!).

Good to hear we have another source of fey crystals!

Of course, we don't yet have anything we can build with the faerie blocks, beams & paste besides a second faerie crafting building. I am probably going to hold off on that for now & wait to see what else comes up. Of course, I still have to build my bridge, but am glad to hear that it doesn't require parts to build!

I was happy about that too " no faerie parts " if I start getting more,fey crystals I may make the essence, at least but right now I'm pretty low on fey crystals,,, they don't seem to be droping they are a ultra rare drop for me .

Thanks for the new stuff to make and do but overall, it's a bit disappointing to have a pretty addition in the end (yay!) only to discover it's in a really odd miniature scale with a stagnant, motionless water feature. (sigh!)....oh, and there's STILL troll snot on everything (grr!).

Excellent post,NW! Totally agree! (Now I need to return to the wedding and help rescue your guests from the flood!)

1. We get a sundial during the Pyre Festival event that is the size of the mothership! ...& then we get a BRIDGE that folks are supposedly gonna walk across when even my baby animals are too big to step foot on it. Just look at it beside the faerie tea party table! The scale is insanely off! I know we complain about the size of some items and lack of room to place them but c'mon, THIS is the item that shoulda been at least a 3x3, not a garden decoration sundial or alien beacon maypole spire. Keeping some semblance of real scale with buildings, decorations etc. in comparison to others of similar kind that are already in play would be sooooooo nice & refreshing. As it is, giants must sit down for a faerie tea party while ONLY teeny tiny faeries can cross their bridge....which leads to the question "Will they come to our kingdoms in swarms but we can't go to the Plume Hive that way... Y'know, since we can't fit on their tiny bridge??"

2. What happened to animation??? Have the designers forgotten how to animate or do the new designers not know how to animate?
There is a waterfall which fills the pond under the bridge! Key word there is waterFALL! ...Not only does it not fall, but it doesn't flow, glisten, ripple...nothing. It's just frozen there, looking more like a sheet, scarf or other piece of draping fabric than it looks like water. We have water splashing around & moving on the sawmill & FALLING from Greselda's fountain so we know it's not impossible. Surely the same (or similar) code could have been used for the bridge's waterfall. *perplexed*

The new items make no sense with the scale, this has been a growing (sometimes shrinking?) problem for some time, you can't even really lay out a proper design with these because the scales are so far off. Those chairs in the picture wouldn't even fit on that bridge. And don't the faeries kinda float anyway? What's the point of the bridge then? And it's bridging within the kingdom itself. Couldn't the faeries have just gone around? The decoration just doesn't make any sense.

I didn't realize that was supposed to be a waterfall, I though it was some blue creature sitting on a bench, maybe Papa Smurf?

Ok, you're right... I reread the dialogue (courtesy of Dabag) & it's only for the faeries to use! ...so I guess that means they'll be invading us in swarms soon. Great. lol
But they're gonna WALK ACROSS A BRIDGE to shake hands with Papa Smurf first, not fly around or over it in 2 seconds, so let's just keep that straight right now. LOL!

....and now I gotta get back to wet-vac'ing my queendom. Evidently I had a massive flood last night and Ollie was only able to salvage a few wedding presents. Cupperbutt (the bride) is missing and Mr. Purple G (the groom) is still mired in troll snot. LOL
CARRY ON...

Queenzod
09-29-14, 01:01 PM
I find it highly suspicious that the massive flood and the bridge happened simultaneously. Was it an evil plot to sabotage the wedding? Was Cupperbutt engaged to Kaz before she accepted Mr. P's hand, and Mr. P started the flood, knowing Kaz was returning? So many questions! Luckily, Ollie came to the rescue! I nearly DIED! Now all I have to do is fill out 21 FEMA forms in triplicate to get millions in disaster relief. Heh, heh... (Rubs hands together)

Oh, and to stay on topic, lol, I don't mind the bridge. It is rather Lilliputian, and I can't really see what all the bits are, but whatever. I just don't know how big ol' lumbering Kaz is gonna get across it. Unless he's run off with Cupperbutt. Time will tell!

Hi Castle Story Gamers!

Thank you to the wonderful players who post goal steps and explain their strategies. I just finished the faerie bridge. I love it. The TL designers did an awesome job in creating the bridge. It's delicate, has a different color scheme and looks inviting for the faeries!

I have read that there has been some (cough) debate about the faeries. I wonder if the bridge will be a portal for others to visit our kingdoms. Could we soon see sprits, pixies, or the beloved leprechauns (little people) who may have hidden an ancient treasure to be uncovered?

The drops from the faerie bridge have been good. So far from two collections: faerie paste, faerie block, fey crystal, faerie murmur, and faeriebulb seeds. I was very surprised to see the building supplies.

Happy gaming!:cool:

Eww...First we sacrafice jarred Fairies to make a potion to prepare the ground?

These Sparks are evil. I don't want to kill faries to make it easier for the evil fairies to get into my kingdom.
....
This game is going the wrong direction for me. I don't want to use faries as ingredients, sorry.
...

I can't speak for TL, but wouldn't it be fair to say that Fairy jars as ingredients don't necessarily mean we use the fairy in the jar. Jars can become enchanted from having a fairy in the jar, so you can maybe release the fairy and simply use the jar and any fairy dust accumulated in the jar. Maybe it's just the jar and fairy dust that is being used :)

Seems to be random drop. From 5 collection (I recorded all) I got building supplies one (two pieces), and got faerie essence two times (1-1 piece). Still other drops are good, murmur, fey, etc. But since it is 9 hrs coll.time, you can collect often, that is good news.

When The Envoy to the plume hive adventure appeared (somewhen in the summer) and started to drop faerie items, it was clear that in the near future we may need these items. I made many adventures (not every day, but like 4-5 in a week), and was stocking up all faerie items up to around 20, so when the faeire workshop quest began, I was ready to build up 2 workshops "immediatelly". That is how me and some other ppl succeeded fast.

Just a warning, there are other items, that we may need in the future, such as the boar pelt (drops ONLY from feral land adventure) - imagine if the next quest, when Kaz returns, would need like 30 pieces from this. (I currently have more than 90, soon maxed out - in my barracks only feral adventure goes since it was introduced).

Or if we may need and additional 20 belladonna inscription. They did left the trade after sister sister completes, what may mean that we may need it in the future again.

Usually, all items that remain craftable/tradeable/gettable somehow after a quest means that we would need it again, somewhen.

So, be prepared...

Well I "liked" your post back atcha! I don't know what happened. Never had an issue with the kitchens, always had plenty of everything until a couple of months ago. Now there are days upon days where I can't send out adventures because of lack of food for the knights. Now this Faerie stuff is going to kill my bakers. Almost making me regret being one of the founding members of the Free the Faeries Force.

ETA: at the exact moment I hit post I realized what happened a couple of months ago that caused all the kitchen garbage. It was the last update. After that, every time I put something in the kitchen it would disappear. Even when I would sync and double sync and come back and check a few minutes later. Everything would be gone when I would come back to collect. Did that for over a month. So wasn't able to make anything and used up all my inventory. Hence why I'm struggling now.

I was so excited the other day when my Faerie Bridge drops 1 Faerie Beam, 1 Faerie Block and few Faerie Murmurs! I also collected several Faerie Essences (which I think requires a lot of rare resources to produce at Faerie Workshop, but needed to build blocks, beams and pastes).

WOW! Thanks TL for this great addition of Faerie Bridge! It's totally a worthwhile and awesome goal to have. I've been more interested in this game since TL added 'Envoy to Plume Hive' adventure and have been sending my knights on regular basis to adventure there. Thanks so much for this update, TL!!!! You guys rock!!!!!

I'm in the process of building a second fairy workshop and waiting for enough random drops from the fairie bridge. But to be honest until and unless there's some type of time limited faerie quest line they're pretty much going to sit idle since the resource requirements are so dramatic to make the faerie building items.

The bridge is locked until you finish Plume Hive goals. What goals are in your book? Have you finished Azalea/Lila and tea party and sapling? If you had goals and now they're not in your book and you hadn't finished them, then you'll need to email support. Link below... Otherwise, let us know what goals you do have so we can help :)

Store them for future buildings. If you look at the massive amount of resources required to create even one faerie building item you'd do well to stock up in advance.

The bridge has been dropping some nice items: fairy essence, (I have 10 now without crafting a single one), fey crystals, and of course the fairy block & beams. The paste seems really rare though since it's only dropped one of those for me so far.

I haven't crafted anything in the fairy workshop in a week or so.

Absolutely - I am sure we are not making all of these 'Fairy' materials and buildings if we aren't going to use them! :). Alas, I am one of the lagers still working on Sister, Sister. But it keeps me out of trouble while I'm waiting for the next goal. (Did anyone hear the rumor that Kaz is coming back - over the bridge!!)

Well I'm a lagger that only just built the faerie workshop and hasn't built the bridge yet. The Halloween event further held me back by tying up my kitchens. Finished Sister, Sister a long time ago though.
