A Desert is typically a piece of land full of mostly sand. Deserts are a more challenging place to build a fort, as they lack a supply of wood. However, if a magma stream can be found, you can make a working fortress out of nothing but glass. An aquifer present makes for an easy water source, but breaking through it to find stone is difficult.
