9. A “feeder” game will mostly be referenced by someone who is playing on PC. With recent developments in the operating systems for iPad and Kindle, I believe it is now possible to log onto those devices with different user accounts. This is what is needed for a feeder game – or a like device. Basically, you create another user account on your PC (or device). 

After the account is created with a password, you log onto your PC with that new account. Midnight Castle game icon will already be on the “desktop” for you to click….when you do, the game opens to the beginning of a brand new game. It will then be necessary to play that game to some level (most players want their feeder game to at least be up to Level 24 because the Column of the Fallen is opened during Level 23). Once the feeder game is established, you then send a friend request from one of the games to the other. You can then exchange goodies – but you can still gift that account only one time during each 24-hour GMT period.

 10. Trina is in memory of a player who created games (on Facebook) for other players to test their knowledge and who was always helping others. At the time of her death, Darcie posted the following to MC Facebook site: Hi everyone! As some of you know, we lost Trina, a wonderful member of the Midnight Castle community at the beginning of this year. Many of you had the privilege of knowing Trina, and now just how amazing she was. She brought a lot of fun to the community with her artwork, games, and willingness to help everyone, and she is truly missed. In her memory, the Midnight Castle team has invited Trina to stay in the castle that she helped bring so much life to. Stop by and say 'Hi'! And don't worry, Trina's wolves are friendly! ~ Darcie   

11. The “A” and “S” collars on the wolf pups in Trina’s Key Master Shop are for Apollo and Shadow. The bird next to Trina’s chair is a robin. These 3 additions were added as a tribute to Robyn (game names Apollo and Shadow; forum name as Apollogold) who died on August 29, 2017. Robyn was one of the original “list makers” and many of the threads in the Tips and Tricks section of the Helpful Links for Midnight Castle (on BFG forum) were created/started by her.

12. No, there really is no "short cut" to get more coins, stamps, etc. There are "advantages" placed in the game features (getting HOS items from pet chests; using the Amulet feature; crafting items and selling; using the new Puzzle feature)....but these features are there to give you a boost in the game. They are not meant to be used exclusively or even frequently. The only way to get the game to give you ALL you need to advance in the levels (items, stamps, coins) is to do the rounds, do the rounds, do the rounds. Otherwise, you may be advancing, but you will run out of something -- usually stamps.

Quests to Level Up – The actual place in your game where you reach the next level may differ slightly from those posted here. Some players prefer to do all the quests in character order – that is, finish with one character before going to the next character. Others prefer to go as far with the first character as they can and then see if they can perform some of the quests for the next character. (The levels in this Guide are based on completing all quests for each character in the order they are listed within the Prof. Pinfeathers section.)

While a level may be reached at some other quest, the quests will all be listed …..and all of them presented in Prof. Pinfeathers window must be performed before you will receive the next set of quests. There are a couple of places where the game does not tell you about some quests for a character. As I get to those areas, I will try to add a note so you will be aware of an abnormality in the flow of info the Prof. provides. 

The original strategy guide included the crafting amount for each item and what it cost for opening new areas, HOSs, and ZZs. But it did not give you a total cost for the level. Nor did it list the types of stamps and the number of each that were required during that level. I have included that info in this updated Guide because I think it will be beneficial to the players.

The game cost is just a “raw” number because there is no way to compute the amount of coins you get as you go through the game. While it is true that the amount of coins you receive from the completion of a quest is static, you will also be getting bonus coins when you level up in a HOS, sometimes when you craft an item, and various amounts when feeding pets. These coin amounts are quite variable with each player depending on how frequently you feed pets, which type of pet chest you receive, how many coin bundles are in that chest, whether you receive coins as a bonus for crafting, and how fast or slow you level up within the individual HOSs. 

Plus, there is the possibility that you will receive a crafted item from the Fortune Wheel, so you save the coin crafting cost for that item. You may also receive coins from winning while playing dice. You may also receive a valuable pet egg (some can be sold for $5000 coins) that you choose to sell instead of hold in inventory for crafting the pet. 

So, while there is no real way of determining the exact/true cost for advancing in the game, the totals of what each quest costs will give you guidance for when you need to stop following character quest, perhaps, and just “do the rounds” for a while. 

Opening new areas, HOS, ZZ will be in bold black 
Helpful comments will be in purple 
Crafted items will be in green 


DISCLAIMER: The character quest listing reflects those in the game after the drastic change to the lower levels made in November 2016. Naturally, we have no way of knowing whether the Devs will be making changes to the current quests in future updates. As a result, over time, these quests may not be entirely accurate. I have no plans of periodically restarting the game to determine their continued accuracy. But, in the past, when the Devs made any changes, they only made the levels easier…. So, these are here as guidelines for future players.
