किल्ल्यात खजिना व सैन्य सुरक्षित राहते.
किल्ल्यातून गुपचूप लढाई करता येते,
आपल्या बाजूवर नियंत्रण ठेवता येते ,
सैन्याचा बंदोबस्त करता येतो,
आपल्या मित्राला मदत करता येते आणि
आपल्या शत्रूचा किंवा बंडखोरांचा समाचार घेता येतो
किल्ला नसेल तर खजिना शत्रूचाच झाला समजावे
ज्याला किल्ल्याचे पाठबळ आहे त्याचा नाश होत नाही असे आढळते.
