Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Castlewars manual.


The aim is to get into your opponents' castle and take their team flag. Then, bring that flag back and capture it on your team's flag stand.


This useful item allows you to repair broken doors and catapults. Simply use it on the item to be repaired, or have one in your inventory when you select the option, and you'll rebuild it!


These can be used to restore some of your life points and running energy. You can also use them to heal fellow players.

Explosive potion:

A simple but effective item; use it to blow up your opponents' catapults, ballistas and barricades! It can also be used to clear the tunnels under the area for a sneak attack into your opponents' castle. Don't forget to collapse the tunnels into your own castle, though!


Use these constructs to block your opponents' movement and prevent them accessing your castle. Each team can only have ten built at any one time.


Fill a bucket with water and you can use it to put out a burning catapult or barricade - be quick!


Logs aren't all that's flammable; use a tinderbox to set your opponents' catapult and barricades alight.


Use a pickaxe to mine your way through the tunnels under the arena for a sneak attack into your opponents' castle. Don't forget to collapse the tunnels into your own castle, though!


Use this war machine to launch rocks at your opponents. Just give it rough co-ordinates and let the rock fly!


Used as ammo for the catapult, and not much else. Brings new meaning to the phrase 'flies like a rock'.
