- Although it was originally promoted by making it available as a free download, after two weeks it was changed to a standard, for-purchase plug-in.
- This plug-in was originally identified as "Dragonfire Castle" and rumors of its development appeared in some game magazines in Summer 2006, more than a year before it was officially confirmed by Bethesda. The long period of time before the plug-in's release led to speculation that Dragonfire Castle had been canceled or even that it had been a hoax. Evidence of the original name can still be found in the Construction Set, where the editor names of several doors within the castle (particularly in the East Wing) contain the word "Dragonfire".
- Since it was not included in the Knights of the Nine retail disc, Fighter's Stronghold was not translated and is the only official add-on available solely in English.
- Pre-Release Content — Shots from the plug-in prior to its release.
- The Mystic Emporium page bugs section describes a fairly serious bug affecting that shop when this plug-in is installed.
