1. What is Budehuc Castle?
Budehuc Castle is a rundown place, newly owned by Thomas, a young man from 
the North.  He has been put in charge of Budehuc Castle, which has been run 
down for years.  As it starts out, only Thomas, Cecile, Sebastian,Martha, 
Piccolo, Juan,Muto, and Eike are living on the property, with a few NPCs.  
You can unlock Budehuc Castle in Geddoe's Chapter One, Chris' Chapter Two, and 
Hugo's Chapter Three, by going to the Lake Castle area by way of the Yaza 
Plains.  As each main character goesto Lake Castle, they will be able to 
recruit non automatic characters, and they will go to Budehuc automatically.  
The Chapter 4 part contains a lot of spoilers.  View at your own risk.

The main house, main house courtyard, and farm area should be easy to
