Castle Blocks - Part 2 - Crafting with Savvy

      After my previous experiments with castle blocks I decided to build the Midday Estate, maybe an entire house made out of the various blocks would be cool. When I got to my new home I began exploring, I didn’t like the house out front much so I tore it down, picked up all the pieces and started from scratch. I found that what is supposed to be a very simple process could become quite frustrating if things don’t line up just right. Nevertheless, there is something amazing about building a house exactly how you want it to be. Oh, you want a tower 6 levels high? You got it!

Castle Blocks - Part 1 - Crafting with Savvy

      In previous articles I have mentioned castle blocks, at first I wasn't sure about them. The possibilities are really cool but they seem to lack the personality that I was getting from using the tablet/marker combo. However, I decided that it was unfair to judge the newest items without giving them a chance first. Most of the recipes are fairly cheap and mainly use reagents that are easily accessible, which is nice. The pieces fit together with ease where as the markers had to be arranged in a certain way to form an extra room. Unfortunately the walls can not be placed at a diagonal and there are only two different styles.

Introduction to Krokotopia Crafted Clothes - Myth Clothes

     One of our residents at the Castle of Crafts is a tiny little Ice wizard. As her farming locations are understandably limited, she often finds herself lacking gold for trips to the bazaar to buy better clothing. I was already beyond the Grizzleheim Wintertusk outfits by the time that I realized the value of crafted outfits, so decided to take a look at some of the outfits available for the little wizards.

Crafting with Savvy - Kitchen Items

     Today I’m going to discuss kitchen items; I mean we all have to eat right? We do eat eventually, right? Well, even if we don’t it will make for a nice place to craft pet snacks anyway. Besides, a house is just not complete without a kitchen. The recipes for almost everything you could want in a kitchen can be bought from the big ‘ol teddy bear, Tarold Wayfinder in Northgaurd, Grizzleheim. He sells recipes from kitchen cabinets to gold place settings.
