Credits/Disclaimer ------------------------------------------------ 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. ------------------------------------------------ 2. Improving Budehuc Castle ------------------------------------------------ 2a.
