Castle Greyrot, a new rogue-lite RPG on the horizon! Featuring Duran!



Hello, Time Travelers!
I've been absent for the past year, working on a new project called Castle Greyrot. Imagine Shattered Hourglass bosses, dialogues, decision-making, and job system but it's set in dark medieval times.

The story is Castle Greyrot is a living being that changes its location every 10 years and corrupts its surroundings wherever it goes. As an experienced Commander, you are summoned to engage in a raid on Castle Greyrot.
With mercenaries on your side, you're about to venture to the Castle and destroy the unknown evil force within. It's that simple.

You can check out Castle Greyrot's page right away!

Since the 8.0 update, Scan no longer works. Shift only shows Enemy stats, not weaknesses.
It actually Scans for real now, (it's not opening a status screen like the previous script) when targeting an enemy press Shift to see the stats of targeted enemy. Also like suplexedatrain said, press Q/W to check those status immunities etc.

I finally arrived at Tidender! Now, you mentioned a way to quickly grind EXP?

Also, how do I get the Golden Bell which doubles drop rate?

Yup, just outside of Tidender on the world map you can gain an enormous amount of EXP.

Get 15 house updates then head left of the player house, there will be a new dungeon which you can get that item.
Yeah, entered the dungeon but all chests are locked.

EDIT: Also, Tidender's shop has equipment stocks low, is there a sidequest or something to have it stock up?

I'm assuming that the North Mtn is not yet available?
It is available!



That one :)

Well, you gotta open all those chests, check the tablet thing on each map to get a clue to how to open those chests.

No, that's all. Tidender sells very few things, the monsters on the outside can drop very rare good equipment though.
BTW how do I get the Golden Bell double drop item plz? I can't make heads or tails of the clues on the tablets.

Prouject did a full playthrough of that dungeon and he had no clue as well :D
I better link that video otherwise it'll be a long explanation for me D:
The first tablet starts at 58:20~
I meant the one north of Hunters Hut.
Can enter but, nothing to do there.

Just went to the ice one you pictured and can't enter that one.

You gotta earn Bamboo Rod in Lumberjack's Camp, that unlocks fishing so that you can fish in there :D

Talk to the NPC that mentions Mother Glacia (north side of that ice mountain) it'll unlock the quest. (Requires to talk with that crop growing NPC in Seran)

I had talked to the npc who wants to be like Mother Glacia and the npc in Seran told me about Frostbite Mountain to get what I need when I went to Seran the first time.

Yeah, you gotta talk to that Mother Glacia NPC again to get access to that mountain :D
are you going to make a sequence of the game? It'll be interesting :D

This entrance on the northern island is inaccessible. I was wandering around while trying to get the drops, and found out I couldn't backtrack through here. I guess nobody else bothered to return to this mountain after the Frostbite!

I think the story will end completely after the post-game stuff. It would be interesting to make prequel stuff but for now... who knows D:

Oh... wow. Thanks for that! It seems that issues stayed there for over 3 years without my knowledge. Fixed that on my client too.



Any hint on this area? I did notice that there are different amounts of blue tiles in different areas??

Some of those blue blocks are represents numbers (like dice numbers), so stepping on those in order activates that purple block.

When i was doing this puzzle i didn't notice that they are like dice so i just wandered there for like 30 minutes to enter the boss fight. Also i'm reccomending you to use Suan's laser beam

Good tip. Thanks
Cotton Robe (dropped from Ripples, the Tidender Hunt boss) does not show up in the Armor tab... OR the Identify Book.

I can still equip it on my characters, but it doesn't show up anywhere?

EDIT: Also at some fishing locations, I'll occasionally get a glitch where Duran goes "Got one!" but then I'll get... nothing at all. This has shown up at the Lumberjack Camp and the Tropical Island (where you find Qual) so far. Since I can't fish up Man O' War no matter what, I'm wondering if this is because the items he fished up are glitched?

I'll fix that, thanks for bringing to my attention.

As for fishing, I made a mistake on RNG, there is a slight chance that you can get nothing from those locations, but you can also get loot in there as well. I'll be fixing those in the next version!

Will we ever find the riddler?
Ooohh, that's a tricky thing to answer... I wonder what happened to him after that basket head cult... Hmm...
I was expecting to see fishing available at ....Fisherman's Horizon.Also Scan is useless. Shows only ??? for everything.




Here is a little map problem I thought I'd let you know about.
Not a big problem. You can walk off of it so, you don't get stuck up there.
