The Motte and Bailey in my eyes is the grandfather of the castle. A defended town and a Keep for the lord or lady to reign from. Use of a combination of inclines, palisades and moats is a sure to keep out nasty goblins. Made of wood and/or stone I have opted for a wooden construction for my kitset.
