The Fort is the first building in the castle line. It is required for many of the Level 1 buildings, and necessary to move on to the higher level buildings.
As a defensive structure, the Fort isn't much. It consists of a wooden stockade with a gate. 240 troops can be garrisoned in the Fort.
Establishing a Fort (or any building in the castle line) has some effect on the province happiness, but it is unclear how much as this is hardcoded.
The Fort has a -10 magnetism value for mercenary recruitment.
