can you build castles however you want or is it build plots like that of bfme1 i dont mind cos the castles in this game look epic
It varies by race. The Elven building style is pretty similar to BFME - they have a set number of Great Tree plots circling their settlement. The Men have plots too, but players can purchase additional plots further away from their Town Hall and can build Mills outside of their town (like the construction of lumber camps in BFME). And then the orcs have construction opened-up to where they can build buildings anywhere on their homeland map as long as they do not interfere with the pre-determined wall layout.
