Castle Story Guide Wiki

Thurston's Questline unlocks Sir Thurston, a knight.

Pre-requisites & Notes:

In the beginning, Thurston is visibly shivering out in the woods, wearing only his boxer shorts. After expanding to his square, a variety of tasks will be assigned: recovering pieces of his armor, fishing his helmet out of a pond, etc. The worst part is having to pay his 25000 Coin bar tab. At the end of this Questline, you build his home, Thurston's Fort.

The next collection from his home will trigger the Troll King Questline, in which you will forge the legendary sword Excalibam.
