Forts are a huge part of the game. They are not only defensive structures, key points to capture, but they also serve other purposes.
- Forts significantly increase the defense of any unit inside
- Stationing a damaged unit in a Fort allows the player to RECRUIT, restoring a unit to full COUNT, at the cost usually of some XP and some gold
- Some forts are the objective, they must be captured to win the mission
- Some forts are full of treasure or a special hire-able unit or hero
- Some forts contain hazards such as monsters who will attack you, or traps
- Forts can be destroyed by Seige weapons and restored by Support units
