The roundpole fence is not able to protect you from thieves and is very easily destructible.

How to AcquireEdit

Build > Walls and Fences > Roundpole Fence

Begin by constructing a cornerpost and then right click on the cornerpost to expand the fence.

You can build a gate by building 2 cornerposts so that there is a 2 tile wide gap between them. Right click on one of the cornerposts to build a gate. The gates work just like Palisade and Brickwall gates, except they don't require keys.


  • Fences, gates and cornerposts, like all objects, decay more slowly if built on paved tiles.
  • Gates, even when open, seem to cause pathfinding issues especially with livestock; If there is no other pathfinding choice, they need to be led straight through the gate, else they will get stuck.
  • While certainly not as effective as a palisade, roundpole fences in combination with a claim and a hearthfire instead of a gate requires vandalising to break in.
