CastleVille Faugrimm's Vacation Quests: Everything you need to know

While most of our time in CastleVille is spent building up our Kingdoms with lovely decoration and even cuter animals, there's always the threat of Faugrimm and Beasties lurking in the background. Apparently, we have yet another enemy to worry about now, as Faugrimm has supposedly gone on vacation and brought in a new apprentice to take over in his absence.
