Overview Edit

Bonuses Edit

  • Caravans. Every Egyptian building, with the exception of Lots and Trading Posts, is mobile, allowing you to take map control much more quickly and easily.
  • Empowering. Their leader, Muhammad Ali Pasha, also has a trick up his sleeve: he is able to Empower surrounding villagers and military units, increasing their gather rate and attack.

Weaknesses Edit

  • Fragile Army. Egyptian units, for the most part, are meant to harass the enemy more than fight in direct confrontations. If you try to directly assault the enemy, you’ll suffer a quick defeat.
  • Weak Caravans. Egyptians should favor running away from their enemies rather than making a stand, as their caravans are weak and have no effective base defenses to protect them from enemies.

Unique units and buildings Edit

The Egyptians have several unique units, meant to make life more difficult to your enemy’s economy. They also have caravan versions of all the regular African buildings, except for the Lot and the Trading Post. They do not have any sort of defensive building.

  • Fellah: The main unit of the Egyptian army. This weak and fast unit is perfect for raiding and putting pressure on the enemy. On the other hand, it's fragile and, unless massed, won't be able to keep up in a fight.
  • Naffatun: This unit is the Egyptian equivalent of the Grenadier. It's cheaper and weaker.
  • Mehariste: A ranged camelry unit. Good at raiding.
  • Mamluk: Powerful melee cavalry that can take and deal a lot of damage.
  • Muhammad Ali Pasha: The explorer. It can empower nearby villagers.
  • Bedouin: This unit replaces the house: it provides population space while remaining mobile.
