Fort Marshank from the Redwall TV Series

Fort Marshank was an unfinished timber-and-stone fortress and slave encampment on the northern part of the Eastern Coast. Badrang the Tyrant ruled from Marshank with an iron fist, amassing his power through a cruel vermin army of weasels, rats, ferrets, and foxes.

Marshank was built after Badrang, a northern corsair captain, scuttled his ship and headed northeast with his army, capturing slaves along the way. Upon arrival at the Eastern Coast, Badrang decided to conquer the region and forced the slaves to construct the fortress.

The building was rectangular, with a single gate and high stone walls protecting against any attack. They were wide enough to allow the horde members to man them effectively. The horde and its leader lived in a wooden longhouse while Marshank's slaves lived in a large compound surrounded by a wooden palisade. Sometimes, the slaves were thrown into a prison pit, a deep dirt hole covered with a heavy wooden lattice.

The slaves and their allies dug a though a secret tunnel out of the prison pit into a nearby rocky outcropping. Both the slaves and the horde members used the tunnel to exit and enter the fortress.

Marshank fell during the Battle of Marshank, and was seemingly deserted afterwards.
