Mount & Blade Wiki
For upgrades in With Fire & Sword, see Fortifications.

Fortifications are map entities that can be captured through sieges.

Villages that belong to the fortification are captured with the fortification.

Towns are centers of commerce. Castles have very limited capabilities in comparison.

With Fire & Sword[]

In With Fire & Sword, all fortifications are granted the same interaction options, harboring marketplaces and mayors (with the attendant upgrade options).

In addition, a new class of fortification is introduced, the Fortress. The primary functional difference between Fortresses and Castles on one hand and towns on the other is that towns are permitted caravan destinations. Other differences include gunpowder demand and typical garrison size.
