Within the same province, you may need only 1 Village to have a Castle, or a City, 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.

Human Settlements

The Settlement must look good before recognising.

The following settlements are used for factions with humans.

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

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

USEFUL THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR BUILD:

  • Fisherman's hut - should be built next to water, with basic living furniture inside and a fishing deck next to it
  • Hunter's camp - tents around a fireplace, with logs to sit on
  • Vineyard - vine plants with a central building where they are stored
  • Animal corral - place where you keep at least 5 living animals, big enough to store them
  • Village hall - main building of the village, where all the important meetings take place
  • Temple - speaks for itself, feel free to build a church, mosque, shrine of whatever comes to your mind
  • Smith - a place to smith, anvil, other basic equipment pieces, can be connected to a house with some furniture
  • Carpenter - a place where the craftsman makes creates furniture, place when he can store wood, some basic furniture
  • Stonemason, stoneworker - a workplace, some area where spare stone  is stored, basic furnitureFisherman's hut - should be built next to water, with basic living furniture inside and a fishing deck next to it
  • Stables - horse stalls with some living horses, donkeys or mules in the
  • Butcher - workplace (butcher table, butcher block), basic furniture
  • Tavern - tables, counter, cellar with some barrels and food, voluntarily rooms for guests to sleep in

  • The term "hut" has the same requirements as a house.  
  • A Specialist Building does not count as a house.  

The term "shop" has the same requirements as a house + extra decoration with specific things the shop sells.

What is basic furniture?

  • It's basically all you need to live, so a bed, furnace, some form of a storage, table with chairs. Of course you can add whatever you want, as this is bare minimum.

What are basic fortifications?

  • Basic fortifications mean a palisade made out of wood or earthworks - fortifications made out of dirt.

Castle

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.

Castle can be built within a city, in such case the city won't require further fortifications, plus the city will be able to get sieged.

The castle 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.

Castles 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 Castle 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 castle 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 castle.
  • The castle 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 castle, 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 castle should contain:
    • 4 Chests (which could be useful for storage during battle)
    • 1 Anvil and 1 Unsmeltery for repair things
    • 1 Command Table
    • Water Source (not necessary if near a pond/river)

Castle Rules

  • No Obsidian
  • No Lava
  • No Quagmire (Only if the castle is in a specific biome where quagmire naturally generates)
  • No Cobwebs
  • No Water/Lava inside the walls
  • Building castles on lakes/ponds/rivers is not allowed.
