Tips about the Event
1. It's not that you have one day to complete a chapter - it's that another chapter won't UNLOCK until the next day.
2. If you finish the chapter early, you have to wait for the remainder of the time to expire before the next chapter starts. You have to complete a chapter to begin the next chapter.
3. If you take longer than a day to complete a chapter then the next one will start sooner.
4. If you gem skip a chapter, the next one doesn't start sooner (you will wait even longer!).

5. There are 2 sets of requirements for this event - Low level is 15-30 and High level is 31-50





Just a reminder...the tiny terrarium and the little Fire pit from previous storybooks are both great sources of iron ore. They are both 1x1 and have a 2 hour timer. Very helpful when crafting lots of longswords!

Also don't forget to check the autumn raccoons and skunku-pets for wheat.
The harvest pergola for a chance at flour, bread, maybe grits(?), and possibly even a ready made simple feast!
The food shelter for bread.
The milk and dairy trades for bread and grits.
The frog prince, level 5 horse track & jousting arena, Thurston's fort, and knights hall for ready made long swords.

These aren't guaranteed drops, of course. But they happen often enough to make it worth the energy IMHO. I'm sure there are probably others I've missed, but those are my go-to collections.

Some of you were wondering about crafting an extra lily since we had to collect 3 wisps. I crafted 2 black lilies because they look cool, but you really won't need to worry about collecting from them very much since you only need 10 petals to craft the steed. The petals had no other purpose in the storybook. And the players who do not want the bear will still need 70 teeth in chapter 9, but you'll get most of those by fighting the 25 bears as part of the goals.


Some guidance on the 2 neighbour requests - how you might make it work:
* Keep a record of who is sending you requests as they are clearly active and playing the event.
* For the 1st request, limit requests to your most active neighours (those who have sent you a request) and try for about 40 requests.
* If those neighbours return your requests within a day, then it means for the 2nd request, they should also be the neighbours to target first.
* For the 2nd request, send your request to the same 40 neighbours including Stormie, then send out to everyone (just tick everyone).
* The second request overrides the 1st requests if your 1st request was not responded to (I know this is true...I have multiple accounts)
* Getting requests 4-7 days later is just the way gifting works. Not all of your neighbours a delivered a request at once.



Posted 11 May:

Thank you guys for all of your feedback on the event. Light and Dark Wisps will now drop more frequently from the 'Venture to the Forest" adventure.

Grand Prize: Knight's Writ - entitles you to a knight's steed!

Old Thomas: Sir Thurston is busy with knights-in-training across the Kingdom. If you can find him, your presence would mean a great deal to his squires.
Chapter 1:
Goal 1 Visit marketplaces 0/4 GO (skip 88 gems)
Goal 2 Visit cottages 0/10 GO (skip 40 gems)
Goal 3 Visit farmhouses 0/10 GO (skip 10 gems)
Note: If you get the message that says you are at the limit on town buildings, you have to sell a different town building (look in your market so you sell the right one/s in order to get another marketplace).


Old Thomas: The library is warm and comforting and full of grand old tomes. It is easy to see why a bookish young squire would spend time here. Still, you did promise Thurston to inspire the lad toward more knightly pursuits.
Chapter 2:
Goal 1 Search the Library 0/1 GO (skip 16 gems)
Goal 2 Find the Squire's Book 0/1 GO | the goal will complete when the Squires book drops from the library.
Goal 3 Read a Plushy Knight's Tale 0/1 READ


Old Thomas: Gemma, the miller's daughter, is nowhere to be found. However, sitting next to an open window is on old tome called *A Plushy Knight's Tale.*
Chapter 3:
Goal 1 Meet with Old Thomas 0/1 GO (skip 4 gems)
Goal 2 Venture to the Forest 0/1 GO | Castle only, 1.5 hours - 1 simple feast, 3 swords (speed up 6 gems) | the goal will complete when you collect from the adventure
Goal 3 Collect light and dark wisps 0/3 GO | the goal will complete when you have 3 wisps. You may need to go on several/lots of adventures to get the wisps.
Note: If you get 3 of one colour, the adventure is available once again when chapter 4 begins, so you can keep trying for the other colour....


Venturing into the forest, you follow the path described in *A Plushy Knight's Tale.* The way is dark and leads deep into the wood, to a mysterious meadow full of flowers made of darkness and light.
Chapter 4:
Goal 1 Introduce yourself to the squire girl 0/1 HELLO
Goal 2 Place a dark wisp lily 0/1 GO | Potion Shop 2 hours - 1 dark wisp, 20 water, 10 glimmerdust (timer is only 1.5 hours) | if you want 2, craft both at the same time (speed up 6 gems)
Goal 3 Place a light wisp lily 0/1 GO | Potion Shop 2 hours - 1 light wisp, 20 water, 10 glimmerdust (timer is only 1.5 hours) | if you want 2, craft both at the same time
Goal 4 Harvest the dark and light wisp lilies 0/1 GO (skip 2 gems) | timer on lilies are 30 minutes. Speed up 2 gems
Note: you can collect from the dark and light lilies in between chapters and it will count toward the 25 you need in chapter 5. If you have more than 25 in inventory, the goal will auto-complete.


Gemma insists that a larger number of enchanted petals are needed to summon an enchanted sword. They don't come cheap, you know!
Chapter 5:
Goal 1 Gather light petals 0/25 GO (skip 50 gems) | collect from the light wisp lily
Goal 2 Gather dark petals 0/25 GO (skip 50 gems) | collect from the dark wisp lily
Goal 3 Forge the Plushy Knight's Sword 0/1 GO | Magic Forge, 3 hours - 25 dark petals, 25 light petals | Speed up 12 gems.
Note: dark wisp petals 4 gems each | light wisp petals 4 gems each


A horde of angry Frizzly Bears decends upon she who wields the Plushy Knight's Sword! You might want to lend a hand.
Chapter 6:
Goal 1 Defeat Frizzly Bears 0/1 (skip 15 gems) | Goal Prize - Frizzly Bear Trap
Goal 2 Lure a Frizzly Bear with a Trap 0/1 GO | place the trap on your board from inventory and chop it. Make sure you don't have any other monster on your board or the trap won't work and you'll have to spend 10 gems for a new one.
Goal 3 Slay Frizzly Bears 0/20 GO (skip 300 gems)


Turns out Squire Moffrey is on holiday with his parents. As ruler, it is your right to summon him to court...but you'll have to find him first!
Chapter 7:
Goal 1 Visit Kingdoms 0/20 VISIT (skip 200 gems) | visit community players
Goal 2 Receive Knight's Scroll 0/20 Ask (skip 160 gems)
Goal 3 Summon Moffrey 0/1 SUMMON | press the green Summon button to complete the goal


Knights are only as good as their ruler! You must set the example and lead these young squires in training.
Chapter 8:
Goal 1 Slay monsters 0/10 GO (skip 50 gems) | These monsters count towards goal 1: Fangbeast, Skunkupine, Glimmer Golem, Dire Boar, Yellow Skunkupine, Green Fangbeast, Blue Dire Boar, Purple , Glimmer Golem, Frizzly Bear
Goal 2 Give boar pelts 0/75 GIVE (skip 450 gems)
Goal 3 Celebrate at a Tavern Level 5 0/1 GO| you collect from either a Level 5 or a Level 6 tavern to complete this goal.

If you have not yet begun the Troll Tribe goal lines available at level 22, and you are a player level 31 and above, you will not have been introduced to the dire boars and therefore you need to decide whether to use gems and skip this bit or stop playing. Refer to quote posted in Post 1 from PikaSquirrel.


That horde of angry Frizzly Bears came roaring back...literally! Is there some connection between them and the Plushy Knight's Sword? You shall soon find out!
Chapter 9:
Goal 1 Slay Frizzly Bears 0/15 Go
Goal 2 Give Frizzly Bear Tooth 0/70 Give
Goal 3 Find the Knight's Helm 0/1 Go | (I found the knight's helm after fighting just 2 bears. Kattkrazie)


So it was that Squire Gemma saved the kingdom...with a little bit of help. A ceremony was to be held in her honor, so all in the land would know the true qualities of a knight.
Chapter 10:
Goal 1 Receive Thanks 0/20 ASK (skip 120 gems)
Goal 2 Build the Knight's Tribute 0/1 GO | Market, 100 coins. Build: 50 jewels, 75 bones, 20 knight's bracers, 10 golden eggs
Goal 3 Complete the Knight's Trial. (Use the rewarded scroll to claim a Knight's Steed!) 0/1 Go | Magic Forge, 3 hours - 1 Plushy Knight's Sword and 1 Knight's Helm | This goal is crafting the Writ. Time stops once you collect your craft, but make sure you collect before the timer runs out!

* After you complete goal 3 you receive a Knight's Writ from crafting the Knights Trial. You can craft either a black steed or white steed.
* You'll need 1 Knight's Writ, 25 glimmerdust, and 10 light petals for white horse or 10 black petals for black horse.
* The Knight's Trial has a 6 hr. timer and drops 200 coins. 2x2 statue.
* The Black Steed's drops are being recorded in post 1. They are exactly the same. Just the crafting time is different.


***YOU CANNOT CRAFT 2 STEEDS***
DO NOT CRAFT 2 OF THE OTHER ITEMS (sword or helm) UNLESS YOU WANT THEM JUST AS A SOUVENIR.

Dialogue - now complete



Triggered when Chapter 1 goal 3 is completed
Thurston: My Liege! We are honored by your presence. Welcome to the best knight-training program in all the kingdoms!
Ruler: What a splendid group of squires! I had no idea there were so many!
Thurston: Indeed, they are all most excellent... or almost all.
Ruler: Almost? Surely, you don't doubt their convictions already?
Thurston: Well, er... there is one squire who spends rather too much time in the library for my taste.
Ruler: There is nothing wrong with an intelligent knight, Thurston.
Thurston: Of course not, my Liege! It is only... perhaps you could speak to this would-be-knight? yes! Inspire the squire to spend as much time with a sword as with a book!
Ruler: Very well, Thurston. I shall visit the library.

Triggered when Chapter 2 goal 1 is completed
Ruler: I am only here as a favor to Thurston. He is training young squires, you see, and I am here to inspire one toward great deeds!
Old Thomas: A squire, you say? Hmm... I know of no young man wandering my stacks. There is only myself and Dim Duncan the janitor and... Oh, there is sometimes little Gemma, the miller's daughter!
Ruler: And I suppose *she* could never be a squire?
Old Thomas: Well, ah... that is to say... there is no precedent for a *lady* knight!
Ruler: All the same, I shall speak to this miller's daughter.
Old Thomas: Of course, Young Ruler! Gemma is usually found among the tomes. she has a great fondness for knightly adventures and fairy tales.

Triggered when Chapter 3 goal 1 is completed
Ruler: Thomas! I could not find Gemma, but I did find this old book...
Old Thomas: What is it, then? Ah, *A Plushy Knight's Tale*! Yes, this is a classic. A children's story about a teddy bear who discovers a magical sword!
Ruler: A teddy bear? Who becomes a knight?
Old Thomas: And I suppose a *teddy bear* could never be a knight?
Ruler: Well, ah... that is to say... there is no precedent for a teddy bear knight!
Old Thomas: I suppose not. At any rate, it is only a fairy tale.
Ruler: Thomas... what if young Gemma believes this book to be more than a simple story?
Old Thomas: Oh, dear. Then I imagine she would follow the path that the Plushy Knight took.
Ruler: And where would that path lead her?
Old Thomas: Into the forest... at night.
Ruler: Oh, dear.


Triggered when Chapter 4 goal 1 is completed
Gemma: Hello, there! You look familiar.
Ruler: Yes, I kind of... rule this kingdom.
Gemma: Oh, right. That's nice work, if you can get it, I suppose.
Ruler: Are you Gemma, the miller's daughter?
Gemma: Well, that's a rather patriarchal question, isn't it?
Ruler: I beg your pardon!
Gemma: Look, would you mind helping me with something? I need these flowers, you see. You see, the Plushy Knight only became a true knight when he got an enchanted sword. And you only get an enchanted sword from enchanted flowers! Petals to be exact.
Ruler: Is that really how it works?
Gemma: I man, I'm working with legend here. There's only one way to find out.

Triggered when Chapter 5 goal 2 is completed
Gemma: You know... I think we have enough petals.
Ruler: Oh, thank goodness.
Gemma: Now we just need a blacksmith. You know, someone to forge a sword.
Ruler: Right, that's logical. Though I don't know of many enchanted smiths. ...maybe we can just use the Magic Forge

Triggered when Chapter 5 goal 3 is completed
Gemma: It worked! Holy hotsprings, it really worked!
Ruler: Hmm... I did not see that coming.
Gemma: Behold! The Plushy Knight's Sword -- weapon of legend, slayer of slayers, foer of foes! No one will say I can't be a knight with this in my hand!
Ruler: Wait... who said you couldn't be a knight?
Gemma: Well, you know... there's no precedent.
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Ruler: What... was that?
Gemma: Oh, it's probably the Frizzly Bears!
Ruler: Frizzly Bears?
Gemma: Well, in the story, forging the enchanted sword summons a horde of angry Frizzly Bears.
Ruler: Lovely.

Triggered when Chapter 6 goal 3 is completed
Gemma: Whoa... this is a really good sword.
Ruler: You fought bravely, Gemma. But remember, a sword alone does not defeat a horde of angry Frizzly Bears.
Gemma: You're right... good thing it's an ENCHANTED sword!
Ruler: No! That's not what I...
Gemma: I can't wait to show this thing to Moffrey! He's going to soil his small clothes.
Ruler: Moffrey? Was it he who told you that you could not become a knight?
Gemma: Yeah, he's a *real* squire. he's got a practice sword and a tabard and everything!
Ruler: Hmm... I think I shall have a word with this Moffrey.

Triggered when Chapter 7 goal 3 is completed
Moffrey: It was only a matter of time before I was summoned to court! Royalty knows excellence! The ruler probably wants to make me a knight already.
Ruler: Is that what you think, young squire?
Moffrey: Hello, mighty monarch! I am Moffrey, First of My Name!
Ruler: Right, you're the one telling little girls they can't become knights.
Moffrey: Well, ah... that is to say...
Ruler: Yes, yes. There's no precedent. I'm getting rather tired of that excuse! Tell me, Moffrey, do you know how a ruler chooses a knight?
Moffrey: Um... a jousting tourney?
Ruler: No. I mean... okay, yes, sometimes. But even a tourney winner must work for the good of the kingdom.
Moffrey: So a knight must... slay monsters and stuff?
Ruler: That's one way to be of service, but it's hardly the only...
Moffrey: Then I shall slay you a hundred monsters, my mighty monarch!
Ruler: Perhaps that number is overly ambitious

Triggered when Chapter 8 goal 3 is completed
Gemma: Behold! I am the greatest squire in the land!
Moffrey: The only reason you slayed more monsters than me is because of that sword!
Gemma: An enchanted sword only comes to *she* who is worthy, Moffrey!
Moffrey: I already talked to my father, and he's buying me an enchanted sword for my nameday!
Ruler: Gemma, were you just taunting young Moffrey?
Gemma: Well... you know, he's been on my list for a while. Like right at the top!
Ruler: That is no excuse. A knight is strong. A knight is brave. A knight is honorable. But a knight is never petty.
Gemma: Yeah... I guess you're right. It's just...
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Gemma: That sounds like FRIZZLY BEARSSS!!!
Ruler: Oh, not again!

Triggered when Chapter 9 goal 1 is completed
Thurston: My Liege! Wander not into the fray. I have already lost my helm to those dread beasts!
Gemma: Whew... I think I got the last one.
Thurston: Last one? What do you mean *you* got the last one?
Gemma: Slayed? Slew? Is it slayed or slew?
Ruler: Gemma, a knight does not gloat.
Gemma: Right. Sorry, Sir Thurston.
Thurston: Yes, well, you are to be commended, Squire Gemma. Your actions have saved the Kingdom from a great peril.
Gemma: Yeah, good think I had my enchanted sword!
Thurston: About that... do you realize the Plushy Knight's Sword attracts the Frizzly Bears?
Gemma: Aw, man... I guess I'll have to give it up, huh?
Ruler: That is for you to decide, Gemma. The sword came to you, and only you can relinquish it.
Gemma: Alright. Here, just take it.
Thurston: I'll just be returning this to the mysterious meadow.

Triggered when Chapter 10 goal 3 is completed
Thurston: Squire Gemma, not anyone may become a knight... But a knight may be anyone; a boy, a girl, or even a teddy bear! That is the moral of the Plushy Knight's Tale: a knight is not defined by swords or armor... A knight must be strong and brave and honest and honorable. young Moffrey is no more entitled to those qualities than you. Thus, it is with great honor that I bestow up you this Knight's Writ... Signifying that I think you will one day become a GREAT KNIGHT!
Gemma: Wow! Thank you, Sir Thurston!
Thurston: Don't mention it. also, the scroll is good for half-off a meal at the Homely Henry's House of Haggus! Enjoy!

Hopefully it's not the Marketplace...lol. That would just be cruel & unusual punishment.

Wow...here we go throwing all kinds of stuff out again. I don't see why we have to visit 10.. can't it be a few cottages, a few farmhouses, the stables & hatcheries. They're already out, S8!!!

So far I've fought 3 bears. We can start that without starting the storybook. Yay.

Bear 1 dropped 1 tooth and 1 Knights brace (naga shell armor colored silver)
Bear 2 3 teeth
Bear 3 1 tooth and 1 knights brace

Yes. I've started the event whitout reading the forum, and I only had three marketplaces out. Usually I have four, but I stored one to have space and didn't put it out.
Now I'll try to prepare for the nexts goals and try to recover the time losed.

...or the mistake is the cap for teeth, which is 99. Lol

Looking at the first requirements and the bear that needs 400 teeth ( of the 99 we are able to store) I just feel unbelievably weary and depressed.

meme1098
05-04-17, 01:21 PM
Ok, so how are we supposed to craft a bear when the cap for teeth is 99 but we need 400 (!) to craft a bear? LOL!!!

Wow...a typo?? Maybe 40? That's the usual requirement to craft an animal. Someone had a heavy finger, I'm guessing. :D

Plus...how could 1 bear have 400 teeth...lol. That's one humongous bear mouth 😳

From the popup, it looks like we'll be crafting a book (did that with OT), a sword(haven't we done several of those already too), and either craft or are rewarded some sort of statue. And I really don't need another horse either. LOL

No, not doing anything wrong. You are at the limit on town buildings, you'll have to sell one (or more) other town buildings in order to get another marketplace.

You'll need to sell a Town building to buy another Marketplace if it won't let you get one, since we have a silly cap on how many of those type buildings we can have.

PrincessCelestian
05-04-17, 03:00 PM
No they won't be. They will just need to put out their market places and then wait for them to be ready to collect BEFORE they hit the begin button on the story book. It's a good practice to be a day or two behind on these anyway. That way you can know what is coming and you can also be behind any glitches that happen. I guarantee this will be a tough one. The prize drops gems and energy so it's not going to be an easy task.

Looks like Goal 2 is 10 cottages and Goal 3 is 10 farmhouses (post 1 was updated.) By the way, I have not started yet, but the Bears spawn from ponds anyway. And it looks like the Bears give no energy when you kill them.

With an event like this does it matter if we "start now" or "later"? And if I choose later (for example in 2 days time) do i have less time to complete it than someone who started straight away?
Also reading that we need to collect from marketplace 4 times, i only have 1 of all town buildings.. should i build more??
Level 30 if that makes any difference.

I'll ask for auto start dates, but the event timer says 13 days, so auto start won't be for another 3 days, so plenty of time if you want to wait till it's more convenient.

i did start the storybook, but no goal about bears has come. i tried wells, and got a bear. it dropped 3 teeth, which count in my workshop towards the needed 400! and i got no energy back from the beast, so this will be really energy intensive!

I would definitely build more marketplaces. (I have 6, but only keep two out...so I held off on starting this one) Leaving them at level 1 should be fine. And I'd also recommend building more cottages and farmhouses. Cottages refresh every 4 hours, so visiting 10 will take a long time with only one. Farmhouses are fast, so you don't need as many of those.

If you choose not to start it, it will eventually autostart, but no matter if you start now, later, or allow it to autostart, you will have 10 days from the start date. Keeping in mind that each new day starts when S8's day starts. So depending on when you choose to start, day one might not have the complete 24 hours. (But if you have the buildings ready to collect from, it won't take long to complete)

I don't have the goal to craft a bear in my goal book either. I just figured it would come when I started the storybook. I'm getting the bears to spawn, and have the craft in my workshop, so I'm ok for now.

SW, could you please ask S8 if the bears could have some energy return? I hope the fact that they don't is just a bug! It's taking me an average of 7-8 hits per bear, that's a lot of energy when we need (at least) 400 teeth. :eek:

Thanks for the warnings about the marketplaces and cottages. I have mine percolating til tomorrow. For those of you who don't have enough of these buildings, it seems that for many events it's very helpful to have multiples of town buildings. We have used several marketplaces in the past also so it might be worth building them.

the goal for crafting an animal is often a side goal and does not impact your storybook progress towards the steed. of course, we have to wait and see, but don't be discouraged yet. i'm getting 1-3 teeth per bear conquest and so we will see how it goes.

First off I want to say thank you so much for sharing the chapter requirements! It is so helpful to know what to pull out of storage and what to stock up on. So thank you!!!

I've been focusing on the Frizzly Bears before beginning the first chapter while I wait until my stored Marketplaces are ready to collect. I haven't been keeping track of how many bears I have fought, but I'm up to 24 Frizzly Teeth and 8 Knight's Bracers, so I think I am on a good pace.

I've fought 2 bears (5teeth):
Bear 1: 2 teeth
Bear 2: 3 teeth

Perhaps it is replacing the Knight's brace with a tooth if you haven't started yet? If Bear#3 drops 2 teeth then there must be some logic for the replacement pattern, if not then looks like it's totally random per the usual. Based on what others are saying it is (i.e. Buffton Heights/Sirelie p11). Hmm, wonder if we're grouped somehow into a particular outcome of "random?" Be curious to see if random wasn't that random at all. In a similar manner to the way we're categorized on the leaderboards or how event reqs differ by level, but rather some other set of factors predetermining drops and then is only random by comparison at "random" to any given "random" player, lol. ;} If they have coded it like this, it'd sure help with pre-planning!

UPDATE: Bear#3: 2teeth (really seems like it's replacing the Knight's Brace, but my honest opinion is that it's just coincidence)

I haven't started yet and I have 4 braces, so it's not the case. I think thar bears just have a chance of dropping 1, 2 or 3 teeth :)

I only get dire beasts from my ponds and well. I purchased the frizzly bear trap and only got I tooth from slaying the bear so with no Ali's or wizard schools for energy I am doomed to miss out on the 400 teeth needed.

05-05-17, 08:29 AM
Well you are doing better than I am, 4 bears 4 teeth! At that rate I may get enough teeth to make a bear by next month and that's if I play nonstop!��

One thing that I find really helpful in these water intensive (pond collecting) events is to stock up on the items needed to craft the Faerie Elixir in the Greenhouse. That way the water isn't going to waste and you get a quick and relatively easy 20 energy, which will come in handy with all of the Frizzly Bears.

I always try to think of ways to use the excess resources that we have to collect rather than continually see the black bar indicating that I have no more room in my inventory. So I was making a lot of the Vital Extract during the last event when we were virtually swimming in mushrooms.

05-05-17, 09:29 AM
I'm not sure but,,there might be a trigger,,,like after completing a task,,,kicks in the Frizzly bear,,,there's plenty of bears showing up,,gl


DONT FORGET TO CLEAR ANY MONSTERS FROM Your BOARD,,,FRIZZLY BEAR WILL NOT SHOW UP WITH ANOTHER MONSTER ON Your GAME BOARD

Since we are not getting any more monster hunts. It would be nice when there is a goal to hunt and craft a new animal. The troll caravan lady could show up and say something to the young ruler. Like...golly geez those pesky frizzly bears sure are causing a nuisance. Go out there and smack some sense into them. And they would also drop sword/shield/staff tokens. And there would be much rejoicing.

Great idea!

05-05-17, 10:58 AM
Caron7 - I don't have it either, but then I haven't started, so maybe beginning is the trigger.
msmorg - it may be both. Cottages for goal 2 and farmhouses for goal 3.

Keep in mind the first 'day' ends in 6 hours when changeover happens as normal....

I know this answer is somewhere, but I can't find it. Please, what time does S8 day start? Thanks

For Shibuyacloth:

36689. 36690


***SW***
The reward for Chapter 1 was a book but don't see it in my inventory. It looked like a brown spell book.

I don't see the book reward for chapter 1 in my inventory either.
For chapter 2, I apparently found the squires book on the first library visit, because part 2 autocompleted, and I got another book as a reward that is also not showing in inventory. I sure hope we won't be needing them later. :confused:

Also, still no bear goal in the goal book, nor any dialog pertaining to the bear. But they are spawning, so I'm not complaining. Just find it curious.

36701

I took a screenshot of the first reward, but not the second one.

Just make sure you have 10 cottages are ready and at least 5 farmhouses, plus a couple of libraries and the rest of chapter 1 and chapter 2 will take about 12 minutes. (Ten minutes of that is for the farmhouses to recharge. I didn't have room to place 10! Lol)

I'm in California and I was wondering if one of you math wizards could please help me out to best utilize my time to start goal. At 12 midnight it changes to the next goal so what would be the best time for me to start? Any suggestions are appreciated thank you in advance I've been doing this for several years now and you would think I would already know this but it confuses my mind just trying to understand it.
I am trying to give S8 the benefit of the doubt for a while and see what happens.
I really wanted another monster hunt too. I also miss the days when we didn't have to put out 10 of one building (because if you only had one market place would it even be possible) I guess as someone said in the past...As you play you can choose which items are important to you to play for and which ones aren't. I didn't continue on the last event to win the peacock it was the first that I just quit. Made me so sad. Also a suggestion for ppl that like to double up on their animals, lately S8 seems to be making a boy and a girl of most of the animals so in the end we are getting a pair, I also like to get a pair but it sure seems S8 doesn't want that. Oh should I maybe mention we all complain about not having enough space at least the animals only take up 1. I'm happy for that. All in all I have to appreciate S8 for entertaining me so well for so long I'm just sad it seems to be coming to an end I guess. I also appreciate the help of everyone here without it I wouldn't have a full queendom like I do.

I posted braces earlier too, but it's bracers. :confused: I'm very curious and a little scared to know what they will be used for. ;)

I have been getting mostly 1 and 2 teeth, with an occasional 3. Haven't gotten a drop of 4 yet, but I'm having decent luck with the bracers. (Hope I didn't just jinx myself!)

So sorry.
If it makes you feel any better, since then I've only gotten one for each bear at an avg of 8 energy strikes per bear! Ridiculous.

I decided I'm not going to let this bear take over my life. I'll continue bashing them twice every energy refill, but will not sacrifice everything else. If I get thee bear, I get the bear. If not, there's that white polar bear that I have in storage...

If you want the final day to be next Sunday, completing before you go to bed/11:59pm Sunday, start today. (Fri, sat, sun, Mon, Tues, we'd, Thurs, Fri, sat, sun =10). I always think about when I want to dedicate the most time since you can fall behind and catch up, but you can't speed ahead to get to the things you need to do while you have free time without a ton of gems.

I always try to think of ways to use the excess resources that we have to collect rather than continually see the black bar indicating that I have no more room in my inventory. So I was making a lot of the Vital Extract during the last event when we were virtually swimming in mushrooms.

Just keep in mind that making floral grow now costs you ten clicks (you have to get them when they're done) and collecting the elixir costs one, so you net +9 not +20. If it takes you more than 9 taps to get the red and purple petals and glimmerdust, it's a loss making the elixir. I also hate wasting material and made so many stone blocks and fancy blocks during the second to last task... but the perceived energy gain is tricky since it's basically energy neutral. I find it is worth doing when you've already stocked up on floral grow and vital extract during downtime. For the pond collections I try to do more water trades in Royal exchange, make lemonade for gem exchange, and make food with various fish.

Just a little tip....even though you find things for sale in the market (like the frizzly bear trap), it isn't always a good idea to buy them and work ahead. Sometimes these things are goal requirements in future chapters and may not count when you get to that chapter. Just a thought.

Just keep in mind that making floral grow now costs you ten clicks (you have to get them when they're done) and collecting the elixir costs one, so you net +9 not +20. If it takes you more than 9 taps to get the red and purple petals and glimmerdust, it's a loss making the elixir. I also hate wasting material and made so many stone blocks and fancy blocks during the second to last task... but the perceived energy gain is tricky since it's basically energy neutral. I find it is worth doing when you've already stocked up on floral grow and vital extract during downtime. For the pond collections I try to do more water trades in Royal exchange, make lemonade for gem exchange, and make food with various fish.

But a great way to store energy when you have extra between events. Also less energy if you combine 3 plants into one. Then you get 3 or 4 petals for one energy

Nope doesn't count! I put it out with others as an extra (but included it in collection) it doesn't count thankfully had an extra cottage to cover it😃

Sorry if this has been asked or answered already but even though I've started the event I have nothing in my blue book (left hand corner) eg craft bear? My event timer (right hand) is working. I've done a hard reset but still nothing? Is it me or has it not been put on yet as it's not officially started? Confused yup I am lol. Thanks

Here is what dropped from the Library:

Since we can hold more than one, I'm waiting to "read" the book (chapter 2, goal 3) so I can hopefully collect a few extra. I realize they may no longer drop, but I'm going to try.

Hmmm, that never showed up in my inventory. But it did complete, and gave me a pop up saying I'd received a squires book as a reward. I checked inventory to see if book #2 showed up. There was nothing new in inventory, so I hit read, and finished the chapter. Just checked 3 libraries, on the off chance something would drop, but nada.
I really hope we don't need these things in a later chapter.........

I also got the pop up at goal 1 of a squires book as a reward and nothing was in my inventory. I got another pop up after "A Plushy Knight's Tale" dropped from the library with a squire book as a reward, but again that also wasn't in my inventory. So I think the "reward" book and the Knight's Tale are different items? I'm wondering if the goal reward book is really unlocking something we don't quite realize yet? Your guess is as good as mine.

Just out of curiosity: I already killed tons of bears and yet the side goal is not in my book. Do I need to do anything specific to trigger it? Not that I intend to have one (not a huge fan of Zoo Story instead of Castle Story).

Thanks to the lovely helpful people who posted next steps here it was no disadvantage to have had only one marketplace out when I started. Getting cottages, libraries and farms out ready and waiting meant I could zip through the other tasks and I'm now waiting for chapter three to start in 8 hours. :)

I'm hoping it isn't necessary to get the bear to finish this event, I simply can't face all those battles and am already far behind. I never collect from the polar bear or the armoured bear, don't need another.

Yeah, i know both that it's random drops of 1-3 and that the bracers aren't affiliated with starting (other ppl had already mentioned this before i even posted). However, I found it to be interesting that my drop experience paralleled the other 2 players referenced in my post, except on #1&3 i got a tooth in place of their bracer, all numbers created equal. I was mostly just pondering the insight. Some ppl haven't spawned any bears at all, some 1tooth each, and i was simply questioning (or hoping, lol) if there was some method (in terms of S8 coding) to this madness. Of course, I'm by no means a developer or even 'programming literate' for that matter, thus in my ignorance I'm curious how they write for random, that is in its entirety or perhaps some x factor grouping. I mean it doesn't seem fair to some for it to be [this] random. You work hard (time, energy, loyalty, & of course gems) you should be rewarded. But evidently, we're playing the Frizzly Bear Lottery... odds 1:32,000,000! ;}

That explains a lot :D But that's also not always the case either, as my first few bears I got 1 or 3 teeth and no bracers. So we may be grouped somehow or it's just a coincidence.
I'm voting for the latter, as this game is as random, as it can be :D

I'd say start right when you wake up (e.g. 6am) if you dont have your 4 marketplaces ready to collect and preferably cottages. If you do have them ready to go then it wont matter what time you start on Day 1 bc the new day wont start until midnight or basically when you wake up. In my experience if you wait until autostart, in the past it always starts 12hrs before the new day. But basically, if your marketplaces & cottages are ready then it wont matter what time you start on Day 1 as Day 2 will start at midnight. So assume you go to bed at 10pm every night and wake at 6am. If you're not ready start at 6am (or as soon as you wake), this will give you the fullest amt of the day as possible. If your 4 marketplaces & 10 cottages are ready to collect then you can pretty much start whenever in the day and when you wake the next morning Day 2 will have started. See outline below for how this works and we'll pretend it it ends at 11:59pm instead of 12:00am for an easier read:

Day 1: Start: ? End: 11:59pm (midnight)
Day 2: Begin: 12:00am End: 11:59pm
Day 3: Begin: 12:00am End: 11:59pm

So if Day 1 is a Saturday and you start at 6am, Day 10 will end Sat 11:59pm (midnight). Mostly, what time you start doesnt matter except for working the actual tasks around your schedule. I would say the most important thing is make sure your prepared as far into the chapters. However, if you only have say 5 cottages ready (assuming you have all 4marketplaces) , it will take 4hrs to collect and thus start at least 4hrs before. It would help to know how many markets & cottages you have. Also keep up with the forumn as sometimes it's beneficial to leave a chapter open for a few days, otherwise collection can stop in between chapters. Not sure if thats the case on this event or not since it just started. I havent started yet either bc I want my Steed so Im waiting for the awesome players who forge ahead to check it out for us and make sure the coast is clear! Thanks for that guys ;}

I hope this helps. I know you said youve been playing a while, so for the most im probably preaching to the choir. And one thing is for certain, im not writing any technical manuals anytime soon (im horrible at this)!

It's ten days. If you start at any time at all on Saturday in California, it'll end Monday at 11:59pm pacific.

Good point, if there's a chapter with no work to do and you aren't looking to spend all of your energy towards killing the bears, might as well spend 5 or so on flowers/dust per floral grow.

I also have the items dropping from bears but no quest for it, read through but didn't see an answer during my speed reading. Is this normal. I wasn't sure if if is because I didn't start the storybook thanks to my little over eagerness that caused me to click that market before hitting begin! Never letting myself forget that! Lol

There are no goals associated with the Frizzly Bear. Please spread the word on your walls to tell your neighbours to collect from wells/ponds to get the bear if they want to. Perhaps the bracers will be used in the later goals of the storybook event.

You are lucky...
I have in average from 6 ponds 1 bear. And from 1 bear 1,1 teeth.
With these numbers I doubt about 400 teeth, even if I give all the energy to bears (I'm afraid that a lot of bracers will be needed for the main goal.)

I wasn't going to complain about this quest (even with requiring 4 visits to a 22 hour timer, luckily it didn't take much to build them). But requiring 21 bears seems a bit much. That's going to be a full day of energy IF you can check in every 2 hours.

I am glad I'm not chopping endlessly building up resources.

This event has been enjoyable so far because I'm not tied to my device.

If I'm reading this right, there's 15 more bears to slay before the end, and we'll need 20 bracers and 70 teeth for the storybook.

For those of us getting one tooth per bear it's going to be a long week.
But it is doable, I'm pretty sure.

It doesn't say it. Further up thread someone posted that this event has so far mirrored an older one. I can't find the post to thank them, so I suspect it's been edited. Hence I'm being wary what I say. In that event, those were the figures for the event items needed. Of course, it's entirely possible the creators have reused the early chapters of an old story and altered it further on. But I would strongly suspect that there will be some requirement for those items, otherwise why are they included. We don't need bracers for bears.

I have no intention of trying for the bear, despite being a massive arctophile. 400 teeth is just too much for my lifestyle. But I'm trying to build up a small store of teeth and bracers as I'm pretty sure we'll need them.

Thank you to every who posts the valuable information on each chapter's requirements! Don't know how we would do this without you!

Does the ability to craft a light or dark lily disappear once you have crafted one or can we craft additional lilies? Would be helpful to have more than one each for the next chapter even though they only have a 30-minute timer. Hard for me to collect that often at work! Many thanks!

It doesn't say it. Further up thread someone posted that this event has so far mirrored an older one. I can't find the post to thank them, so I suspect it's been edited. Hence I'm being wary what I say. In that event, those were the figures for the event items needed. Of course, it's entirely possible the creators have reused the early chapters of an old story and altered it further on. But I would strongly suspect that there will be some requirement for those items, otherwise why are they included. We don't need bracers for bears.
m.

Thanks for explaining :-) .... Deleted post - that would explain it. Wonder why it was deleted? Oh well. .... Yes, me too . going to avoid bears unless I need to. Too much energy to spend just for a brown polar bear ;-),

Edit - guess that's why people are also talking about golden apples/eggs as well ;-)

That has me worried as I have just crafted for feasts...looks like I'll start making more.

Also, I hope golden apples aren't required as I've only received 4 throughout my CS time.

Another boring waste of time and resources. So similar to so many others. Originality zero! Prize ....not worth it!!

Going to disagree this time. Storybook events seem less of a slog to me, and any critter with a drop chance of energy and gems is welcome in my corner other forest. I'm hoping to keep up with this - massive tanks to those scouting ahead for us.

<<<<Chapter 3: text from top of screen
Chapter 3:
Goal 1 meet w Old Thomas 0/1
Goal 2 venture to the forest 0/1 (1 simple feast, 3 swords)
Goal 3 venture to the forest 0/3 (collect light and dark wisps)
Adventure time is 1.5 hours.>>>>

Goal 3 should be collect 3 Light and Dark Wisps, only finish three ventures won't count if not getting three wisps......

My 1st venture only gave me glimmerdust, no wisp. Hopefully I will get one next time......

I do not understand too. Above that - from 3 ventures I have only 1whisp.

With bears it is same :-/ Average 1 bear from 6 ponds/wells and average 1,1(!) - yes, it is not typing error, really 1,1 - teeth from bear :-O

Thank you to every who posts the valuable information on each chapter's requirements! Don't know how we would do this without you!

Does the ability to craft a light or dark lily disappear once you have crafted one or can we craft additional lilies? Would be helpful to have more than one each for the next chapter even though they only have a 30-minute timer. Hard for me to collect that often at work! Many thanks!

Same with me. I hope someone can answer this. If not, we can collect 2 wisp each (3 if you a collector) then craft 2 lilies at the same time for light and dark.

The Forest Adventure disappears after the 3 wisp goal is met. I got 2 dark and 1 light. I didn't try crafting 2 dark (it was too late/early this morning I suppose. lol) I imagine if you craft them simultaneously, you could have the extra. Also note the Lillies are not available to purchase thus far. Mine continue to drop the dark and light petals and are regularly spawning Frizzly Bears as a bonus.

Oh wow. I never manage to build up stocks of simple feasts, flour, bread or grits and I'd better plant more wheat! I'd thought it would take 4 adventures to complete, not so many more. This chapter is going to take me ages. Time to do some up speeding in kitchen and farms and stop wasting all my energy on bears.

For Chapter 3 goal 3: My advise for all is to stock up on simple feasts. I'm stuck as I await new feasts to be generated in the kitchens (speeded up using the Top Chef boost). I have done more forest adventures than I expected.

05-06-17, 01:09 PM
I'm currently up to 106 teeth and 31 bracers. Since the story tasks so far haven't been tap intensive I'm just using all my energy on bear fighting. Not sure how my numbers will hold up throughout the week, but I'm nothing if not determined!


That's just amazing :rolleyes:

05-06-17, 01:10 PM
Well, I don't know I am lucky or not, I found out I have 40+ simple feasts, but first 3 forest ventures gave me only glimmerdusts! Really, hope I can catch up somehow.

You may need the 3rd wisp later, theres probavly no point crafting 2 of one of them, if you only have 1 of the other as you will have to wait anyway

Okay, this is going beyond ridiculous now. I've completed 6 Forest Adventures and not one wisp, light or dark. At this point I think I may have to burn the forest down to get ANYTHING out of it!

Since many of you are my neighbors and I have sent out neighbor requests to you, here's the info for Chapter 7, so far:

Chapter 7:

Turns out Squire Moffrey is on holiday with his parents. As ruler, it is your right to summon him to court...but you'll have to find him first!

Goal 1 of 3: Visit Kingdoms (Search for Moffrey!) 0/20 Visit
Goal 2 of 3: Receive Knight's Scroll (Get these from your neighbors.) 0/20 Ask

I did not intend to gem through this one but real life has been way too busy to play like a normal person. Good luck, everyone!

I didn't get anything either, I've been going on adventures as soon as they finish all day. Lucky thing I've been stocked up on simple feast, it's the swords I've been having trouble keeping up to.

Just a reminder...the tiny terrarium and the little Fire pit from previous storybooks are both great sources of iron ore. They are both 1x1 and have a 2 hour timer. Very helpful when crafting lots of longswords!

Also don't forget to check the autumn raccoons and skunku-pets for wheat.
The harvest pergola for a chance at flour, bread, maybe grits(?), and possibly even a ready made simple feast!
The food shelter for bread.
The milk and dairy trades for bread and grits.
The frog prince, level 5 horse track & jousting arena, Thurston's fort, and knights hall for ready made long swords.

These aren't guaranteed drops, of course. But they happen often enough to make it worth the energy IMHO. I'm sure there are probably others I've missed, but those are my go-to collections.

YW! It's real name is Mantiwort Terrarium, in case someone is trying to find it in inventory. I had to go back to the game to check. Lol.


The clock tower also has a chance of dropping ore. And don't forget iron rich rocks. A few coins and 8 chops, for a decent amount of ore. (I recommend parking a bear to avoid dire boars while chopping rocks)

Mine dropped on the 1st visit, but never went into inventory. So I'm not sure if it's a bug or not. Hopefully someone else who shares your experience will be able to help more. In the meantime, I'd keep trying. Hope it drops soon!

For guaranteed iron ore I simply chop an iron ore rock. You get ore every chop and also stone and silver.

I've used 1000 energy chasing Frizzly Bears from mostly ponds also a few wells. My yield was from the 1000 energy was
Frizzly teeth 149
Knight's Bracer 34

This means one will need 2685 energy to collect 400 Frizzly teeth to make a frizzly bear.

Or 1510 energy to collect 225 Frizzly teeth if you are a lower level player.

Yeah, I was maxed until I made a bunch of the faerie elixir. The glimmerdust drop is probably more helpful to lower level players.

For those not getting the wisp from the forest adventure, have you checked your inventory to be sure it isn't there? I didn't think I'd received any, but there was a light wisp in inventory. It just didn't look like it after the adventure.

I very seldom post (but always read, so thank you so much to those that do post! :)) but thought I would share the following tip. During events like this, I find the Castle Story Inventory Guide invaluable for finding out where I might be able to collect certain items. For example, for long swords, this is the entry from the Guide:

Longsword
Crafted: magic forge
Found: jousting arena, Thurston's house, Destrier, Rouncey, Dragon Bones (Baron's tent prize), Fireworks Dragon (Baron's tent), Troll Training Ground, Armored Fire Dragon, Armored Ice Dragon, Faerie Dragon, Fire Fox, Desert Palace, Jousting Steed, Spring Dragon, Glen the Frog Prince

And, here is the Guide entry for iron ore:

Iron ore
Found: deep mine, sparking mine, chopping all rock types, various Baron's Game Tent prizes, Frozen Campfire, Armored Alicorn, Armored Manticore, Rooted Mine

So, it's not always entirely updated/all-inclusive, since - as bingo pointed out - there are other places that ore can be found, but I think it still helps jog my memory by mentioning places/things I might have forgotten about.

I have the Inventory Guide bookmarked, but it can be found easily by typing Castle Story Inventory Guide in your search engine. Hope this is helpful.

05-06-17, 06:40 PM
We need to know what the Frizzly bear will drop after the event to decide whether to expend all that energy and chopping time to get 400 teeth.

Gaillock
05-06-17, 06:46 PM
I read that slaying the bears don't count until ch. 6 but if we need teeth later, do teeth collected count later? I'm not going for the bear. 400 teeth too much for me. Thanks.
