Topic: Castlot / [Activity] Happy April Fool's Day

Oh its not so much, I mean $1000+ is practically pocket change. Besides, your getting some great in-game gear. What else could you possibly spent $1000 on that’s gonna benefit your life more?

On a serious note though, that’s ridiculous. If I legit dropped a grand on any game I had better get some seriously good stuff. Guys, I know your games not doing the best on Kongregate, but why do you persist to drain as much money from people as you can? We want events to get gears. Maybe making them sets would be even better. But a grand. Good lord guys.

I gotta say though, I love the description of this event. Was cracking me up thinking how you guys are laughing at anyone foolish enough to spend that much money for this gear.

“Everybody is chuckling all the way!” " Are you the one that will put on the vintage yellow April Fool gear and share with us the good humor?"

Good humor indeed.

Wow ModSharon. In your last reply to Ace, you said “Ok, we will record your suggestion and report to our planner group.” as if you didn’t know you could already do that.

Topic: Castlot / Suggestions for Castlot

Hey guys, I’ve been wondering when classes will open. I can’t say when a good lvl would be to open a class, but perhaps adding some in would be awesome.Say maybe lvl 50 you pick a class, and lvl 100 you pick an advanced class.The cost? Perhaps 5k spirits for first class, and 10k spirits for advanced class.

Basic Classes
Governer-Increase all production in current city by x%. (Excluding gold)
Fighter-Increase strength by x%.
Defender-Increase stamina by x%.
Theif-Increase agility by x%.
Thinker-Increase intelligence by x%.

Advanced Classes
King- Increase all production (Including gold by x%) in all cities. Lower armor and health by x%.
Berserker- Increase strength( + ) and health by x%. Lower armor by x%.
General- Increase strength and stamina( + ) by x%. Lower speed by x%.
Master Theif- Increase agility and speed by x%. Lower strength by x%
Mastermind- Increase intelligence( ++ ) by x%.

Theses can be changed at any time, for a price of 100 mp/diamonds. Now these are just simple really. Could go much farther. But I think adding in these might satisfy players a little.

Others-
Basic Classes
Lietinent-increase army size by x%. Lower morale by 10.

Adv Classes
Commander-Increase army size by x%. Lower morale by 20.

The + symbols mean more in that stat compared to normal. ++ means twice as much. Basic classes will have a little rise in said stats, advanced classes having more.

If anything, start with basic classes and see how that goes. So much more could be added to this list of classes, and so many combinations. I just hope that maybe one day, we’ll see something done with classes.

Always Giving You the Best,
Savior

From what I’ve heard, the gold bells are not consumed when claiming the Christmas Castle. So Get them if you can.

Savior

Topic: Castlot / Ho Ho Ho Santa Surprise!

I’m curious about that as well. I have the bells to do it, but I don’t want to lose them for a themed castle that only lasts a couple months. That’s a lot of bells to lose.

As Jason said, 7 XL gifts for a themed castle isnt the best deal.

I hope the rewards in our “Christmas Stockings” are decent and not just a few shoddy gifts.

Always Giving You the Best,

I didnt get my title and castle from that event. I got it from the “Spookiest Story” event. Where these was no time limit in how long I had it. So I have it for good, that’s why i want to know. I’ve had my skin and title for a year+.

Topic: Castlot / Ho Ho Ho Santa Surprise!

Just curious, say I get the Christmas Castle, what will happen to my Halloween Castle? I wouldn’t want to lose it, as I won it in a contest and its very unique.

I think putting in castle skins would be a good idea. Maybe make them very rare, as a way to show off your hard work. Being able to “decorate” each castle would be interesting to see. Just a thought.

Always Giving You the Best,

Topic: Castlot / Element first hit

It based on the speed of all your heroes using the element cards. So say your using HoG, it will only take the speed of the 3 heroes you put the cards on, where CoD will take the speed of all 4 heroes.

Topic: Castlot / Getting Your Jewelry Back!

Just a thought, I think it would be great if we could somehow get the jewelry back we’ve spend on heroes. As you kinda put in the Glaze/Mould funtion after a lot of us players were lvl 100+. So we’ve kinda wasted our jewelry on crappy heroes in arena.

I would gladly pay for this kind of thing. As in diamonds. But I would not pay 1 diamond per level of hero, I would however pay for 1 diamond per 2 levels of hero.

Maybe if enough people agree that they would pay for this (however it for free, or even MP would be nice), that maybe, JUST MAYBE, they’ll add it in the game. I mean who wouldn’t add in a money making idea right?

Yeah everyone who wasnt already logged in is having the grey screen problem. They had better compensate us well. This is a whole day of keys, arena challenges, building/tech/training queues, resources, babel, and time wasted. As I know a lot of ppl are just wanting to play, you guys are making a good game not worth playing…if we could even play.

Topic: Castlot / [News] Coming the New Interface!

The idea was pretty good. I like it. By like most playersand some I’ve talked to, there is a tiny bit of lag at times. Not much for me. And the who thing is so cluttered. I had a hard time trying to upgrade my bottom tent. And same thing as WotU, it was a bit annoying having to move a bunch of buildings to get my scrolls activated. Everything else is fine however. My main problem is the bulkiness of all.

Topic: Castlot / contact to GM

I think having 2 GM’s per server would be a good idea. As one GM cannot be on 24/7. So we miss a lot of things. However, there should still be a “Head GM.” Almost like a “Manager” and “Assistant Manager” type deal. But I find at least 2 GM’s needed, no more though.

Also, I thought they were fooling me at first as well. But I have seen this cap move on it’s own. And as for the eating a peppermint and having a sip of vienigar oil, we all did it. And eventually I stopped. They continued doing it. I’ve seen this demon and have had experiencees since then. And the black cat wouldn’t just appear and then vanish. We’ve had one time when we did the board and it said “Fun” and “Cop.” And that same night, we got pulled over. No one was moving the cap, as we were far too into it for that to happen anymore. Seeing is believing. And I understand if you find me crazy or think I made this all up. It’s all quite hard to believe. But those experiences will never be forgotten.

Topic: Castlot / [Activity] Halloween Spooky Story

When it comes to an ouija board, there is a Moon and Sun symbol. Moon for evil, and Sun for good. When you ask a spirit if it’s good or evil, it cannot lie when it comes to that. It tried to go to the Sun (the evil spirit) and couldn’t. The only reason I typed so much was because I did it so fast and those actually happened. There’s a lot more too. I’ve seen this “Light” spirit. I’ve seen dark shadow people. You name it. Seeing that demon and having it face to face was the scariest I’ve ever seen. But I have never been so calm in all my life during that moment.

I didn’t want to say their real names either for the fact of keeping their identities hidden. All that stuff actually happened to me. To be honest, I believe he lurks in my closet, watching me for the moment I let my guard down. Of course things have happened in my house since that time as well. Such as footsteps, window’s closing, feeling like your being watched, and being touch. Recently, my front door was slammed constantly and I didn’t bother to check who was doing it because usually it’s my brother going in and out the door. But come later that day I asked my mom about it and she said no one was home. So I do believe it was “Him” who was doing it.

Topic: Castlot / [Activity] Halloween Spooky Story

Oh this is going to be good.

This is a true story. The names used in this story were changed to protect identities.

About roughly 2 years ago, I was over a friend Johns’ house just playing some xbox. Most likely CoD. When this girl came over, named Sarah. We we’re all hanging out, and she decided some time later that she wanted to use a ouija board. Now I do in fact believe in spirits and the whole Heaven/Hell thing as we all did. At first me and my friend were a bit skeptical of doing this. As I had no interest at the time. However, John and Sarah did. So I stayed out of it, as I wanted nothing to do with the tampering of spirits.

Of course we didn’t have some ouija board on hand, so we made one. Out of a pizza box. I know right? Well anyway, they get it all on there and they get candles, turn off the lights, and sit down and begin. They said some phrase before they started (they always did after this incident). Something like “If there are any spirits who are here that wish to communicate, then speak to us now.” At least along those lines. When they did, they both put there finger , on the water bottle cap….yes that’s what they used. So as they did they started asking questions. The basic, “Is anyone here?”, “Are you Good/Evil?” and so on. And as you can expect, the cap did in fact move….but by John. So we all laughed and continued but didn’t take it real serious. So nothing initially happened and eventually she went home.

So the next day, she comes back over (about the same time), and they decide to try it again. They get it all set up and tried to convience me to do it, but I still wanted nothing to do with it. So they did it….but this time they got an answer. They asked, “Is anyone here?” They were of course were joking around and when there fingers were off the cap, the cap moved to yes. So we were all kinda freaked out. So they continued, but nothing happened. So we said “Goodbye” as your suppose to.

About a week later after pretty much nothing, I decided to join in. Boy did it all go down hill from here. It was me, John, Sarah, and Justin. SO we did they set up and what not and began. And none of us were moving it as you could tell if someone was, and as you can expect…that’s how it began. But then it got serious.

It turns out we were talking to someone by the name of “Steave” (the actual name of the Spirit). We asked if it was evil, and it said yes. So we talked to it for a bit. But didn’t learn much besides the fact that it wanted to hurt us, and bring us harm. Eventually we stopped talking to him and went to bed. That’s when things got spooky. It sounded like there were scratching inside of Johns closet, along with the hitting of the wall, and moving his weights back and forth (it was one that you would lay down on and it had a long bar with weights on the end). When we woke up in he morning, we checked the closet. And it actually had black scratch mark inside it.

When we tried the same thing the next day, not real smart I know, we ended up contacting someone else. His name was Adam. He had 3 children, and a house….in Pennsylvania I think. Him and his children died in a house fire. Of course we learned this over a course of a few nights as talking to the spirits went kind of slow. And the noises were still happening.

So eventually we got to the point were we found out that Steave was a demon. And it also turns out that he has been following my friend John for a long time. For his parents did a ouija board as well. So this demon has been following his family for years. This is when it got EVEN WORSE. The girl, Sarah, started getting possessed. By the demon first. And he was okay with John, but hated me and Justin. Me the most. He would say very rude things that I cannot repeat. Mostly he would come out and try to hurt us. But for some reason wouldn’t hurt John.

Then one day, she was possessed by Adam. And he was always trying to help us. He would tell us how “They” were trying to hurt us. But we didin’t know who “They” were. And how he needed help, as it was 1 against many. So Adam wanted us to help him by eating a peppermint and having a sip of vienigar oil. Some nasty stuff. But John said they didn’t have any. So Adam, told us there was some in the back of the cupboard. And I mean waaaaayyyy back there. He didn’t even know it was back there.

So as we continued to do this, we would do it in other places. One time we did it in at this road that was suppose to be haunted. And we were asking the usual questions. When they said “Black Cat.” And I kid you not. From out of nowhere, this black kitten comes out of the darkness. And we weren’t near any cities or houses. It was one of those gravel roads. SO we said Goodbye, jumped in the car, and left. We decided to go to Sonic. And guess what? That black cat was there, in the spot we pulled up in. We got out and looked for it and it was gone. But when we left, it was sitting on the curb watching us. And when it went behind a pole, it was just gone.

Another time, my friend Justin got possessed. And it wasn’t good. It started when we were in the car. And we could tell what was happening. You start to get really tired and get really cold. He was literally shivering and it wasn’t but 74 outside (roughly). When we got inside, it happened. So both John and Sarah got on top of him to hold him down. Sarah was about 140, and John I would say 260. So he had a good 400 pounds holding him down. And Justin was maybe 130, and didn’t work out. And yet he managed to start picking them up. So I got on, and I’m 160. He had almost 600 pounds on top of him and yet was still starting to pick us up. So John hit him in the forehead a few time and that seemed to knock it out of him. When he awoke he had no clue why we were on him and was wondering why his head hurt.

And before I forget. I actually saw this demon. I talked to this demon. This demon touched me on my shoulder and around my back. When it happened, I was quite angry. I don’t remember why, but I was. I had left my friends room into the living room. I sat there awhile and eventually when into his kitchen and sat on the island (like a counter in the middle of the kitchen). And I looked over to the bathroom and he was just standing there in the doorway. He was about 6’ 1’’ 140 pounds. Really slender, with muscle…the whole 6 pack thing. And had horns the came from the top of his head, around where his ears would have been, and extended outward past his chin a little. He came out and walked to me and was trying to tell me to hurt my friends. This didn’t go by with me very well. I said many crude things to him. Many curse words and telling him to leave us alone. I later found out he was trying to thrive off my anger to possess me. This didn’t work for him and he knew it. SO he walked front in front of me, to my left, and has scratched my all the way around my left side as he walked around to my back and out the window. I then later came back into the room, calm as day. As if nothing had ever happened. Like I was never angry. During this event I honestly though about leaving. Before the whole demon thing, that’s how mad I was. My shoes somehow got into the living room, next to where I was sitting. As if he was trying to get me to leave.

There as so many more things to tell you. But It would take so long to type it all down. Basically, in the end when we finally stopped, it turns out each of us had a demon with us at all times, constantly watching us. Always waiting in the dark for the day I forget about him. I’ve had goosebumps the entire time I’ve been writing this. I even get them when I watch TV show or movies about Spirits.

Well that’s my story. All this actually happened, and much more.
