Castle Story Guide Wiki

Buildings are purchased through the Market interface. The prices are specified, and may be Coins or Gems. They usually arrive incomplete, and must be "built up" to level 1. This usually requires variants of beams and blocks, and will often need other specific Inventory items to complete construction. The Town, Crafting and Resource building links on this page usually contain leveling information. Please feel free to add more information.

Collecting from a building costs 1 Energy. They may provide Coins, Inventory items, or Crafting items.
