The Fortress is a huge building that is built to fend off the advances of the Evil Gnome. It is built following a letter from the Evil Gnome, which scares Botkin. It can take several days to build the Fortress, although when it's complete, Botkin feels safe.
While building the fortress, you will need a large amount of supplies. Each stage can drastically drain your hard-earned resources, so you may wish to save up before starting on the quests. You will need:
- 10x10 plot of land, free from obstructions.
- A minimum of 18 Machetes, although about 30 is more accurate. You will get 9 machetes while building.
- 151,000 Silver Coins
- 15,000 Wood
- 25,000 Food (and at least 10,000 more if you want to use Speed Ups)
- 40 Polished Metal
- 20 Stone Blocks
- 60 Fireflies
The following quests must be completed in order to build the fortress:
| Finding a Fortress|
Search the forest for a Stone Lantern, and dig it up.
| Forty Fortifications|
Place the foundations and dig a moat.
| Helmets Required|

Like any other building, the Fortress can be collected from daily. When it is ready to be collected from, the drawbridge will be raised, the lights in the nearest tower will go out, and it will say 'Ready for collecting' when the mouse pointer hovers over it. There is no other indication, unlike other buildings.
