Rafael and Alastair have found something mysterious in the Gloom outside your Kingdom in CastleVille, and it's up to you to investigate! What we'll end up finding is one feature that I'm guessing many people are probably going to like, as it deals with unicorns. Appropriately enough, this feature comes with quests called "Inspiring Unicorns," and we're here with a complete guide to finishing them off!
Place the Beacon of Arcadia
Rewards: 1,000 coins and 20 XP
Use the Beacon of Arcadia
Choose a Destiny for the Unicorn
Craft 1 Creative Juice
When you click on the Beacon of Arcadia, a new menu will pop up, allowing you to choose from four Unicorn spots. You'll be able to raise a unicorn with a friend to earn rewards, but for now, just click on "Start" under a unicorn to be able to choose its destiny. You'll choose from three destinies: Expression, Discovery and Kinship. Depending on the destiny you choose, the unicorn will become one of a select variety of animals at the end. The Discovery option, for instance, will result in a Cosmic Unicorn, a Unicorn of Aqua or a Unicorn of Magma.
After you've placed a unicorn in your kingdom to grow, you'll be able to ask your friends for help in growing it. Once you friend accepts, they will receive the same kind of unicorn in their own game, linking the two across games. As you or your friend feed your own individual unicorns, both with grow, with more feedings resulting in more powerful unicorns and more rewards that will be earned after the growth period of seven days. For the record, you can start 10 of your own unicorns at once, and can be helping with 15 of your friends' unicorns at the same time. You can only have a maximum of 70 unicorns in your entire kingdom.
As for this quest itself, you will receive 1,000 coins and 20 XP for completing it.
Creativity on the Rise
Inspire Unicorns with 5 Creative Juices

Have 1 Large Unicorn

Craft 9 Creative Juices
Have 1 Unicorn at Epic level or better
Rewards: 1,500 coins, 30 XP
Craft 5 Creative Juices
Have 5 Unicorns Unleash Their Inspiration
Tend a Fully Inspired Unicorn 5 Times
To "unleash" inspiration, a Unicorn must have been in your Kingdom for at least seven days. Completing this task with an individual unicorn will actually reward you with castle points and extra goodies, depending on how much they were fed, so you'll need to do this with five different unicorns in order to finish this quest. When you do so, you'll earn 1,000 coins and 20 XP.
While the rewards for each individual quest in this series aren't that great, the simple fact that we can now fill our Kingdoms with unicorns is enough to make at least this gamer excited. Stay tuned for more on this new unicorn-centric feature!
