Within the same province, you may need only 1 Halfling Village to have a Bounder Fort, or a Halfling Town, or both of them.

NB: When the term "mountains" is used, this refers to LOTR mod biomes (ie. Misty Mountains, Blue Mountains, etc.), not extra tall and steep landmasses like cliffs, tall hills. Therefore, settlements may still be built on the aforementioned landmasses, just not in biomes like Erebor.


The Settlement must look good before recognizing. Rushed builds will not be accepted.

The following settlements are used for factions with hobbits.

Multiple recognized settlements within the same province are permitted, but only in certain combinations.

At the moment, the only instances when multiple recognized settlements are permitted are when a town is accompanied by a village, or when a castle is accompanied by a village.

USEFUL TERMS TO KNOW:[]

Corral: A fenced area where livestock (pigs, sheep, cows, etc.) are kept. 

Earthworks: Fortifications that have been dug into or raised from the earth, such as moats, trenches and artificial ridges constructed as barricades.

Bounder Fort[]

Castle Settlement.

Adds +1 Siege Battle if someone wants to capture the province it's built in.

Can't be built on or inside mountains.

Needs a a recognized village within the same province to construct a Castle.

The fort cannot be changed in size during a war which involves his province, which means its not actually good for a faction to build a shitty 10x10 tower just to add a siege battle because then you will actually fight in a 10x10 dirtyhole and 100% lose that siege.

Forts can be recognized only during peace times, and every change in size made during peace time needs an additional recognition. Every recognition needs screenshots of the structure as proof.

Castle Requirements[]

  • The Fort must be entirely covered by non-overlapping claims, from a minimum of 1 gold claim to a maximum of 6 gold claims.
  • The number of claims is related to the dimensions of the structure, so if the fort doesn't fit in a gold claim, you will use a second one, etc.. up to a maximum stated above. P.S No need to claim nature just because it's near the fort.
  • The fort structure can have a size which goes from a minimum of 10x10x20 to a maximum extension which covers the space of 6 gold claims and max height 64.
  • Only a maximum of 2 gates in two different locations could be placed inside the fort, they will eventually get converted to their relative block stated in Battle Rules (Rule 8.1).
  • For something to count as a gate, it needs to have dimensions of at least 3x3. Usage of gates smaller than 3x3 may be used as many times as you want; however, when unclaimed anybody is allowed to open or close them, even during battles. 
  • The fort should contain:
    • 4 Chests (which could be useful for storage during battle)
    • 1 Eatery
    • 1 Command Table
    • Water Source (not necessary if near a pond/river)

Castle Rules[]

  • No Obsidian
