Fortresses for the purposes of this wiki include all non-town Fortifications in Mount&Blade: With Fire & Sword and may be thought of as a combination of the previous games' Castles and Towns, adding marketplace and mayor functions to castles, but lacking the importance of towns.
The primary difference between Fortresses and Towns in With Fire & Sword is still the typical size of the garrison. Towns usually feature about 3 times the garrison size as lesser fortifications. Towns can also receive Caravans while fortresses may not.
Fortresses by Nation
- In the game files, fortresses are still called castle, but they will be called fortresses on this wiki to segregate them from Mount&Blade and Warband.
- Some Swedish and Polish fortresses are still called castles, such as Allenstein Castle.
