CastleStorm features a mix of battle and adventure in its gameplay. The player plays a number of characters obtained from completing separate game "campaigns", starting with the default character, Sir Gareth who is introduced in the first campaign, Kingdom Quest. There are four separate campaigns featured in the game, all set in slightly different points of time, with the last being, "The Warrior Queen".

Long ago (the game states it to be around a century), two mighty armies—the southern Kingdom and the northern Vikingland -battled for an unknown reason. Overseeing the battle, the Peace Goddess wept at the needless destruction. Her tears fell in the form of two gems later referred to as the Teardrop Gems - one blue and one red. The blue gem was taken by the King of the Southern Kingdom, whilst the Viking leader took the red one. These gems proved to have potent mystic power, granting their owners long lives and the power to strongly defend their Kingdoms. The game states that "For a time, the world knew peace... but the lessons of old were quickly forgotten, as rumors of a new war began to circulate." Hence within the Southern Kingdom, civil war had broken out— the lack of war causing the local robber barons to turn against the elderly King Edgar. Desperate for a return to order, Edgar commissions Sir Gareth— the most famous knight in the kingdom and Protector of the Realm -to lead a battle force that will crush the armies that have gone turncoat. Without hesitation (and with promise of a gold bonus), Gareth routs the bandits and brings order to the realm and capital city of the Southern Kingdom, Kingskeep.
A New War Begins
In the next stage of the game (happening to be the next day), Gareth arrives at the training hall to hone his skills. Friar Vic, though doubtful of the need for so much training, nevertheless allows Gareth to go through with his regimen. After his training, Gareth joins Vic and begins to head home. However, a sudden appearance of a pack of Dire Wolves—a species of wolf that is found only in the Norseland territories -makes it clear that something wicked is on its way. Using the local ballista (and his own physical skill when the weapon breaks down), Gareth turns the tide; alas, the wolves (and their Viking masters) seem to be little more than the harbinger of a truly dire threat.
Upon reaching the castle the next morning, Sir Gareth learns— from both soldiery and the smug and irritating Lord Rufus (the Royal Accountant) -that the barbarians have already established a base camp just a few footfalls away from the capital. If the invasion isn't stopped soon, the Kingdom will fall. Though difficult, the Kingdom manages to hold out at first. However, the Vikings are nothing if not persistent, releasing Trolls, more wolves and a plethora of troops (as well as potent Norse magic). Complicating matters further is the fact that the ballista breaks again, forcing a head-on assault. To top it all off, the Soldiers' Union organizes a strike, forcing Gareth into the field alone once again. Nonetheless, the battle eventually ends and the Vikings retreat... a fact that confuses Friar Vic, as the Vikings are often too proud to ever give up. The reason for retreat is soon made clear— in the confusion, the Blue Teardrop Gem had been stolen! Fearful as to what a union of both gems could cause, the Kingdom at large organizes a team to reclaim the Blue Gem...
