An off-site holding is any site linked to your fortress economically, societally, or militarily. As your fortress grows successful, nearby sites may choose to become economically linked to your fortress, your civilization may found new sites societally linked to your fortress, and your dwarves can embark on missions to occupy and militarily link sites. These holdings may provide tribute, citizens, and prestige to your fortress. Additionally, members of your fortress can be sent to reside in your holdings (though they are not guaranteed to remain there permanently).
Holdings can be viewed on the Civilization and World Info screen by pressing . You can press for the legend. Each civilization will have its own symbol (Ex:
T) surrounded by a certain color of tile. If those tiles are red, you are at war with that civilization. If the tiles are light green, you are at peace. If they are dark blue, it is your civilization. Your site will be surrounded in light blue and your occupied holdings will be surrounded by magenta. Your vassal holdings will be surrounded by a grayish-blue color. Your tributaries will be a "T" surrounded by gray. Occupied tributaries will be an "O" surrounded by purple. If you are economically linked to a settlement, the settlement will show up as an "E" surrounded by green.
As of v0.44.11, elevation of nobility in your fortress is directly tied to the number of off-site holdings you control.
