Cerebria is a fast‑paced tactical game with constantly changing board states. Fortresses, however, add a more strategic layer to the gameplay. They have many benefits, but most of their power will only show over time. Fortresses provide the following advantages:
• They contribute +1 (or +2) Intensity towards the control of the Realm they’re on, making it harder to lose it to the other team.
• They contribute to the Aspiration of Fortitude.
• Most importantly, they can be added to the Identity during Revelations (under certain conditions as explained later). This gives you a way to add additional Fragments to the Identity, which is a major goal of the game.
