Forts are defined as a building or group of buildings with strong defenses, usually strategically located, guarded and armed with cannons for its defense.
In Pirates Online, two of the four main settlements has a Royal Navy fort, they serve as the main defense of the town as they have a high concentration of soldiers and some EITC soldiers for hire. They can be identified by their high stone walls and parapets. There are three known forts. Fort Charles, Fort Dundee, and Kingshead.
Though forts are surrounded by high stone walls, they also have soldiers guarding their entrances. At Fort Charles, these perimeter sentries are lowly cadets and guards. But, Fort Dundee and Kingshead have more seasoned veterans and even officers by their entrances.
Inside the Fort
The commander of each fort has a small office located somewhere, deep inside the structure. This area is harder to reach and usually well-guarded; which can make obtaining quest objects (like warrants, secret orders, etc.) fairly tough.
The top part of fort is where cannons would be mounted to fight off attack from incoming ships. On all forts, the soldiers guarding this area are tougher than the guards at the entryway.
- Royal Caverns - A navy prison operation.
- Beckett's Quarry - An EITC silver mine, worked by prisoners.
- Thieves' Den - Small outpost.
- El Sudoron - Small encampment
Fort Charles and Fort Dundee both have places to play Cannon Defense. In Fort Charles it is along the path to the main fort and in Fort Dundee it is right to the left of the entrance to the main fort.
