    Dev's Diary: Fairy-Tale Adventures

    Fairy-tale adventures will be arriving to challenge high-level players later this year!

    Dear Settlers,

    This developer’s diary entry discusses a brand new feature: exciting adventures that will allow high-level players to fight with mythical creatures from fairy tales and acquire cool new items!


    The new Fairy-tale adventures will enrich the game with many exciting challenges that were designed especially for high-level players. It will introduce many new and ambitious adventures, new and very powerful enemies, magical resources and exclusive rewards that cannot be acquired any other way.

    This brand new content will be available only for experienced users. These adventures will be tradable. Development is still in progress; some names, such as “Fairy-tale adventures,” and some items are not finalized. The minimum level requirement, too, has not been decided because it will depend on final balancing. More information about exact level frames will be presented in the near future.


    The first batch of this feature will be connected to 5 new adventures that will tell a fairy-tale story related to a little tailor who needs your help.

    You will be able to find the first adventure of this kind by sending your explorers on a long adventure search or by grabbing it in the shop. When you successfully complete it, there is a chance you will be rewarded with a follow-up adventure which will continue the fascinating story.

    The 5 adventures will be split into two paths, where each path will conclude with a final adventure with the chance of special reward.




    These special adventures will bring to the game lots of new and dangerous enemies like Unicorns, Greedy Inn-keepers, and Lying Goats.




    This feature will introduce two new tradable resources:

    Magic Beans

    Magic Beans can be gained by playing the new adventures.
    You will be able to exchange them and buy new items in a special shop category.


    Magic Beanstalks
    Magic Beanstalks are a second resource with even higher value that can be used in the new special shop category like the magic beans. You can produce Magic Beanstalks from your Magic Beans with the help of a brand new building: The Fairy-tale Castle's highest tower is needed for the tendrils of this plant to grow.


    1. Fairy-tale Castle (max: 1)
      Pure magic flows through every corner of this castle.
      This is a special decoration building that can be upgraded up to level 5.
      On level 5 the construction even turns from a decoration item to a production site:
      The building will start to use your Magic Beans which will grow into Magic Beanstalks.


    2. Magnificent Residence (max: not limited)
      Your settlers cannot ask for more comfort and luxury.
      With space for a large number of settlers, it provides enough room and convenience for a king and his entire court.
      You will be informed about the precise capacity after the building design is finalized.

    3. Gold Tower (max: 3)
      This building has been enchanted with Rumpelstiltskin’s help.
      The settler inside this magical tower can spin a straw into pure gold!




    New general (max: 2)

    The Quartermaster General is an expert in logistics. He is not able to lead an attack, but he can transport very large armies (500 units) in a shorter amount of time than his colleagues from your tavern. Each player can have max 2 generals of this type.

    Additional 5 building licenses (max: 3)

    You will be able to acquire an additional 5 building licenses (up to 3 times!) in exchange for Magic Beanstalks. This will allow even higher acceleration of your island’s production capacity.

    Sandman buff (max: not limited)

    Furthermore, there will be a Sandman’s Powder buff available in the shop which will cover your island in darkness.


    More (new) items will be part of the new shop category. We will keep you updated...


    The little tailor will assign you several quests which will guide you through your first fairy-tale adventure
    challenge. This way you will receive a proper introduction to this aspect of the game. In addition to this,
    new help windows will explain the functionality of new buildings. These windows will open
    upon encountering these buildings for the first time.

    This feature will be released in a couple of phases. Each part will bring a many new chained
    adventures, enemies, buildings and items.

    More information will be published in the future...

    Important:
    Please keep in mind that all previewed graphics, wording, and details may differ from the final version.
