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!

First of all I want to apologize for asking so many questions. I wonder if anyone can help me:
1. In Dead Town, I found Bone and suddenly a new quest appeared. What should I do with this Bone?
2. Where exactly are Left Trin and Gwyndia located? I want to complete my fish collection.
3. About Qual, is there any clue where I can find him/her? Is he/she in Wlandia or in Icdalen? Do I have to search every corner as instructed? (I don't know if it's a man or a woman, sorry).
4. About Doodelus, it can be found in Wlandia's most green land. Where exactly is it found?
5. Are there any clues to being able to answer the 4 questions in Volcano? I'm confused to find the answer.
6. Are there any clues to being able to answer the 2 questions in Pyramid? This question confuses me more.
7. When does the prison at Lumberjack open? Will there be a quest for Suan to be able to open the prison?
8. I got the Hand Mirror in the tower next to Dead Town. What can I do with this?

8. I got the Hand Mirror in the tower next to Dead Town. What can I do with this?

1)Head to Trin Island (Near Volcano), get on the boat~ Sail to the north island where the big tree.
2)Left Trin is the shore map just the left side of the Trin, you need to sail there or go right from Seran then head down. Gwyndia is located just the right side of Lumberjack Town, the Ice Path ;) You can fish there (near the entrance)
3) Qual is kinda spoiler but you start its sidequest on a small island with your upgraded boat (from Sandock)
4) Head to Chronix, go south then go right to the woods.
5) The questions are in the Volcano, there are some tablets that give you lore about it. All answers are there.
6) Pyramid questions are based on Ancient Egypt, try to check its alternative words, google can quickly solve it :~D
7) It's in the post-game, you'll see when it happens.
8) In Tidender there is an NPC who wants that Hand Mirror.

Have fun

Thank you very much, I didn't expect my many questions to be answered, I like RPG games like this. Starting from the bestiary feature, collecting equipment that is not available in the shop, fishing and collecting fish, completing many side quests, and exploring interesting places that are not set in the main storyline. Among the 2D RPG games I've played this is one of the best in my opinion, I'm not joking. By the way I've spent 130 hours on this game and it's still going on until now. I hope I can ask again here when I'm confused in playing this game. Great job.

I'm glad that you are having a blast with Shattered Hourglass! It took many years and thousands of hours to make those and improve upon them.
After you've done with Shattered Hourglass I would be glad to hear your review on here or Steam platform! :~D
1. How to use SPEC type weapons, it has a lot in my inventory but I don't know how to use it. Is there a special job or mastery to be able to use this weapon?
2. What are the benefits of Healthy Pocket items, in the description it says "it's healthy item for everyone, carry on!". Is there HP recovery in every turn or something?

It's been a while since I check on my project, as far as I remember SPEC license can be looted from a Hunt that you take from Tidender.
About Healthy Pocket, if I didn't mention any health regen it probably only gives HP Boost. Maybe someone can confirm it.

The Healthy Pockets is a Bag Item. It can be worn by any party member. It only affects the person wearing it. It should say it is for anyone instead of everyone. What he meant is that anyone can wear it. It raises HP by about 5%.
In the quest against Faceless Doom, I couldn't beat him and in the end I was told to give 30 Sealight Bloom. After I gave 30 Sealight Bloom to the enemy, and after drinking it changed to male/female (I don't know for sure) and sent me to Qual to receive the reward. In Qual I received 100k Gold, Sharpest Paw, Sacred Tree Armor, and Paw Master. Can Faceless Doom be defeated through combat? And if it could be defeated through combat would the rewards be any different?

You can't defeat it in combat, I designed it like that :~D There is no reward by secretly cheating the game and defeating it.
1) I saw the previous comments here. and I saw that Zulwhern could be recruited. My party already has 5 people, namely Duran, Treephop, Juliet, Suan, and Mio. Then I visited Zulwhern's house and I didn't find him there. Is it after my party is full that I can't recruit anyone else? And will it affect the number of weapons, armor, and accessories? I want to try to complete the collections of all weapons, armors, accessories, and items.

2) Can I re-enter the Robot Facility / Fauntown? Unfortunately I still left some unopened chests there and there is a mission there (I think) to destroy the robots
To have Zulwhern in your party, you have to go to his home in east Seran, before you go to the Tower. Once you have Mio, she will be with you for the rest of the game. She's a very good Black Mage.

There is an event that can happen where you will revisit Fauntown. I don't remember the particular events that makes that possible, though.
There are so many choices to make; Who you recruit, when you recruit them, Karma, etc. It's tough to remember all the formulae.
Only Sawworm the Master knows them all.
dnel57 is right, once you have your 5th party member you can't recruit anyone. So your 5th party member will always be Mio or Zulwhern. I think I made most of the equipment lootable even when you don't have that party member (like in the Bad/Neutral path) on you.

Hey, Sawworm. What are the events that allow you to revisit Fauntown?

There is only one as I remember, it happens when you get into a post-game event~

I think it might involve Qual.
Ahh it didn't have a big impact on my progress, thanks!
I just realized all this time that there was a ship that appeared above the Lighthouse area in Icdalen when I was exploring, is that ship enterable or is it just a bug?
That ship belongs to the Mage Slayer who stole that in the beginning lol
I know the question I'm about to ask is really troublesome and you'll think I'm being selfish. But this will probably be my last question in this game. So I hope my question can be answered.

1. I think that Suan is an optional character, can be recruited or not need to be recruited. If I don't recruit Suan, will the plot of the story change? For example the mission carried out by Qual, Suan, and Qual's colleagues at the Robot Facility and in the post-ending where Duran needs Suan to open a prison in Gwyndia to save Juliet. Will all that not happen?

2. I haven't been able to complete the Identify Book, and there are still a few that I haven't gotten. Among them:
a. Bestiary : Slots 24, 196, 197, 198, 224, 239
b. Items : Slots 109, 126, 131, 160, 161, 162, 163, 203, 204, 205, 282, 283, 284
c. Weapon : Slots 32, 63, 68, 85, 91, 92, 93, 119, 120, 131
d. Armor : Slots 7, 32, 102, 107, 109, 112, 115, 116, 125, 127, 131, 137, 138, 139, 150, 155, 159, 166, 174, 184-191, 213, 218, 231

3. Can the locked house in Chronix be opened?

4. Can the sword stuck in Qual's city be obtained?
