I would love the destroyed totem back ( it looked cool) and the ability to move all of them so i can use it as a beastie pen or something... help

Hey Mikeal, how did you get The Tainted Tree quest? I'm on level 30 and my last Alastair's quest is "Book of Sinister Schemes".
It says that quests between Book of Sinister Schemes and Strange Rumors arent still availables. "Comming Soon " its what it says but till now, there is no clue about when we can get them to keep going with Alastair.

I'm a LVL 28 and have no Quests, Reading the "Quest" range i should get new quests when i get over 30 right? Then i could just farm and fill up and build t get more castle. My next Quest from Alastair is "The Tainted Tree" have i missed the quest or is it comming after LVL31? it would be nice if there was a list saying where u get the quest ex between where the range are.

The key to Castleville is Castle level and completing quests. Don't add to many things too quickly, and also, don't expand to quickly in the beginning. Its ok to have a few buildings or shops ahead of time, but that is it. For example, if you rush to build a throne room, you will find that you will have to have a Tailor, which will require the building of a studio. Also gift a lot and ask for materials often and have as many friends as possible.

Picture?type=square

Also I forgot to say that for the last 5 days or so no one can travel to my cv, my granddaughter plays and she showed me that it will travel there and it looks like you are going to get to work on it but it never finishes loading. So what's with that. If it weren't such a fun game and my gddaughter relied on me for gift and help I would just quit playing.
Thanks, Vicki

I sent a message to Zynga and never got a reply but my game was reset and I waited two weeks before I just started all over again. So I was starting all over but I have no Great Hall and cannot complete any of the Great Hall mission with out one. So how do I get a great hall? I should have said I did get one of those blank replies we will be in touch we are aware of the problem, but never anything after that so I just gave up and started all over again.
Thanks Vicki

Any suggestions on what she can do to correct this situation.

Users have reported a problem when trying to interact with Alastair. Above Alastair's head there is a message that states, "Click to view quest" but clicking on Alastair accomplishes nothing. There are no additional Alastair quests if Alastair has already been saved and all totem poles have been destroyed. The CastleVille team recognizes the poor messaging and will correct this problem shortly.

We appreciate your feedback and will work hard to quickly resolve issues our players report. You can help by taking the time to click Please Fix on the button below, this helps our engineers prioritize and quickly improve the game play of CastleVille. There is no need to submit an email for this issue.

I'm level 26...haven't even had the opportunity or mission to even start the great hall...I see others have it at much lower levels...I am also only getting seasonal quests...and the ancient ritual site keeps telling me I have to do a quest to unlock...I don't understand why I can't do these quests...i see neighbours at lower levels with both the great hall and have unlocked the ancient ritual site. I noticed someone else on here said if you level up too quick you just won't get these quests at all...if thats true there is no point in me even playing anymore as I will never unlock these things. If someone could let me know that would be fantstaic..don't want to waste anymore time lol.
