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 With Fire & Sword Towns 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.
