I'll have to get back with you on features, if you can post a picture of the baseplate, and what you already plan to have. The obvious is walls, and cannons. As for bricksaving ideas, I can say any before I know what you know about that. Smile

Grin Try using the Blue base-plates in the size that is normally green, there, saved some bricks. If you chose not to do it this way, buy your blue bricks from here:
http://www.legoeducation.us/store/detail.aspx?ID=1785&c=0&t=0&l=0 (For others, check this: http://tinyurl.com/3gwv9ed you can find some good deals).

Unlike what Lego and T/A/K-fols have built, a fort is not just a dock.... A dock can be part of a fort, but a dock is not a fort... You want to take a look at different forms of multimedia to see what I mean..

Here are some I found:

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=7833 (Really good!)
http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2011/02/18/entertainment/doc4d5da9186a1a1241387082.txt (He, He, He, one of my local papers.. Grin )

The more you try to save bricks the worse your creation will be.... Grin Remember, you can take lego apart, if you need a brick, you can get it back. Red Brick But some simples things:

Say you need to fill a 2x5 gap, lets look at the good and the bad.

Good:
2x4 and a 1x2 (2)

Bad:
10 1X1s (10)
5 2X2s (5)
Etc...

If you look at the numbers, you can see how the Good one saves bricks.

Need any more help? Grin

Make a simple structure, then expand onto it, until it is very large

Try to think about forts in real life: what would you see in a fort in reality? Forts should survive sieges for long times, so you should include a kitchen, a bedroom, a lavatory and a storage room. You can also put an 'office', a private room for the admiral.
If you don't have the pieces you can decide before to build an unrealistic fort, compare it to TV series and movies where they don't show the characters going to the toilet or even eating.
