Rhesus is an intrepid and dedicated commander who hails from the lush forests and valleys of Thrace, home to countless tribes of warriors and imposing primordial gods. His troops are specialized in early clashes and decisive assaults. His units fight predominantly without shields. However, they can make great advances, pierce armor and show excellent morals. 

campaign mechanics

Countless Host: Rhesus must find and unite the various Thracian tribes, caught up in internal wars, to unite them under one banner. This allows you to summon powerful hosts to devastate the land of eternal enemies. 
Thracian Rituals: Rhesus is blessed with immense religious powers and can use them to please the ancient cults of Thrace. This grants various types of bonuses, such as access to elite units, village reinforcements, and army benefits.

The warrior-king Memnon is a distant cousin of princes Paris and Hector. He leads the powerful multicultural armies of Ethiopia, a vassal state of Pharaonic Egypt. Memnon's battle prowess is said to be comparable to that of brave Achilles, and he commands warriors who are quick and light on armor, but who still manage to stand firm in battle. Each culture represented in the army provides powerful strategic advantages.

Horde: all Memnon wants is to devastate every inch of Achaia. Therefore, his military expedition cannot inhabit villages. However, she can take advantage of the spoils of war to further strengthen his efforts to defend Troy. 
Servant of the Pharaoh: Memnon depends on the Pharaoh's influence and wealth to reinforce his armies with soldiers from distant lands. He needs to enact royal decrees to unlock units from the four regions: Ethiopia, Egypt, Canaan and Susa. 
Ingenious Strategist: Memnon does not have access to Spies, Emissaries or Priestess in their campaigns. Instead, his prestige attracts camp followers who strengthen armies or grant him special actions before battle. Access the Total War Blog to learn more about the Rhesus & Memnon faction pack.
