On the Island of Endless Battle, your main objective is to rebuild a castle that has been destroyed. That’ll be pretty hard to do all by yourself, but you can instead enlist the help of the residents to build the castle based on the designs.

As long as you have the blueprint and necessary materials in the storage box, the residents will take materials out to help build the castle.
