Fort Charles TopImage

Sitting high on a hillside on the island of Port Royal, is the imposing structure of stone Fort Charles. The monolith of British military might looks down onto the harbor and the town below.

Her wall-mounted cannons are meant to protect vessels coming into or out of the harbor. But, they were unable to protect the citizens from the wrath of Hector Barbossa and the crew of the Black Pearl as they laid siege to the port, in search of the last coin from the cursed Aztec treasure of Cortez.

The fort is also where major island events are held, such as the promotion of James Norrington to the rank of Commodore. Recently, the fort underwent a change, making it even larger - sprawling up the hill to the summit.

The pirate will have to visit here several times as part of various quests; interacting with NPCs, searching for vital items or defeating specific enemies.


Royal Navy

Currently, dozens of soldiers are stationed here. The most experienced men are stationed along the walls.

East India Trading Company

Black Guard members can be found here, too. They are stationed at the overlook where the alarm bell is mounted.This is where pirates can prove themselves worthy as well.


While there are no permanent bosses stationed in Fort Charles, random bosses may appear from time to time.

Cannon Defense


A pirate can play Cannon Defense, a mini-game using cannons to defend the town from raiding bandit ships.

Just past the main gate, there is a Cannon Defense stand and Cannonmaster Bert Calledougal. To play the mini-game, simply walk up to Bert and press Shift.




Pirates often try to infiltrate the fort to either find components for illegal weapons, contraband voodoo dolls, or to meet with imprisoned pirate Gordon Greer.
