Castlot is an Real Time Strategy based around a storyline. Players experience the story as they complete quests. Players first choose a faction, Bright or Dark, and take the role of a Lord, during the time of King Arthur, in the story and live the events of their chosen faction. Each story is specific to that faction, although many quests are identical. Especially early on, the quests coincide with the story so players can learn the game-play quickly.
Castlot is Free to Play, but has in game currency (diamonds) that can be purchased at a cost of 10 diamonds per USD. Purchasing set amounts of diamonds increases your VIP level for which there are bonuses that enhance game play even after the diamonds have been spent.
Castlot, a featured online MMORPG, is set in the background of Britain's defense against the Saxon invaders in the early 6th century. The world at that time is mainly separated into two factions—the Bright and the Dark, led by Arthur and Lord Blackmore respectively.
In the year of our Lord, 449, darkness plagues the people of Britain. Weak rulers have unleashed mercenaries on the land in hopes of driving away Northern invaders. The plan worked all too well. Noticing the weakened state of Britain, the Saxons quickly overthrew local regents and expanded their own kingdoms, leaving the country broken and powerless.
However, not all hope was lost. Resistance amongst the people has increased and clans have combined forces. From all corners of the country, mystics converged to appoint a leader to the new clans, a nobleman named Arthur. Aided in his ambition to unite Britain, the nobleman vows to pull the country out of chaos and return it to an era of prosperity.
All the while, shadowy forces are aware of the resistance stirring amongst the people. Lord Blackmore, a practitioner of the dark arts, aims to help the Saxons through controlling the mind of the Archbishop. To discourage any further disruptions, he has sent forth black knights to remove anyone who challenged his power. But will he realize his ambition?
In the dark faction, the tides are changing; Lord Blackmore sees that the Britons can't possibly fight forever. His reach covers most of Britain, but without a clever cohort to be his spy, he cannot take the country.
While in the bright faction, with Arthur as the leader, it is their duty to protect Britain. Whether by force or by magic, the bright knights must set upon a deadly quest to save the kingdom.
Will you be the spy that Lord Blackmore seeks, or will you journey forth with Arthur and the Bright Knights? Will you be the one to make history? Or will choose the path of honor?
There are two factions in Castlot with a neutral zone dividing them on the map.
Bright: Led by King Arthur
Dark: Led by Lord Blackmore.
Neutral Kingdoms: Players may not be neutral however they may build their cities in the neutral areas.
The rival factions are not allowed to attack each other unless they occupy the Neutral lands. Players can attack their own faction though.
Castlot has an event system that offers a new event to participate and win rewards several times a month. These events greatly enhance game play for the active players and provide some extra fun for casual players.

How to complete the "6 Green Card" quest before level 30.
1: Save all potions from begining quests.(NOTE: you may complete the quests to use "scheme," as you will recoup the potins used when completed. But keep the potions from the Friends quests.)
2: DO NOT complete the quest "Synthesize Blue Card."

4: Now you may synthesize the extra attack card(# 1-3) that you purchased, DO NOT use any attack cards to synthesize. You should have at least 3 training cards( from previous quests,) plus the 2 extras you purchased. complete synthesize quest.Note: if you wish to keep the training cards, then you will need 150 more pots/dias to purchase 3 more cards.
