Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • The brewing stand is in the prison at (310, 65, -2228) and does not require a button to access.
  • The nearest water refill is found on the icy river, just over 100 blocks east-northeast from here.
  • The Emerald Shard here is the easiest one to obtain. Simply pick it up from the corpse in the green tent.
  • It is recommended to stay a few blocks away (around 40) from the fort to let chests respawn.
  • Players practically never approach Fort Z from the north. They will either be coming from Fort Erie to obtain the Emerald Shard or from Clarce to obtain some basic military supplies.
    • This gives the player an advantage when looting this location: Because the only entrance is on the north side, this lets one spot player's nametags long before they reach the fort.
  • This is a decent location to camp in order to obtain chain armor in relative safety and quiet.
    • Iron can spawn here, but the likelihood of obtaining it is very small. It is best to head North to other destinations such as Fort Saward or Death Mansion.


  • Fort Z shared the exact same design as one of the Ruined Forts located in the Snow Biome Northeast of Evergreen Manor. The only difference between the two is the large yellow flag that Fort Z has. It is unclear why these forts share the same design or if they're connected in any way. As of the MineZ Origins update, Fort Z was rebuilt and Snow Ruined Fort was removed.
  • This location is very close to the center of the MineZ map.
  • Fort Z was the only location to have an Emerald Shard both before and after the April 2021 Spring Cleaning update.
  • There is a sign above the entrance to the prison which reads: Prison Guard: Pittacus.


Lore Book

  • The following lore book is located in the green tent at (320, 63, -2243) :

The Fall - Umbra Saros


Sadness and fear.
The days that have passed weigh heavy on my mind.
The New Moon Protocol has been initiated. Silence fills the earthen hall now that it is buried.

Chiron has been sent to preserve our language. Should these shards ever be brought back together, the answer lies under the circle of stone.
Word from the east tells of the destruction of Joh Nee A.

We are entering the death throes of an era. Many more will perish in time.
Our path is still clear, but the days to come will be egregiously slow. Soon they will be complete, and at last we will be vindicated.
