Nomadic Emnity: Major diplomatic penalty with all nomadic tirbes (cultural aversion).
Baktrian Prosperity: +5% wealth from industrial and commerce buildings.

In-game Encyclopedia DescriptionEdit
Baktria is a land of a thousand golden cities all grown rich on trade, and sits at the crossroads between the Hellenistic and Indian worlds, and “Serica”, the lands of silk, to the east. With the Seleucids struggling against Ptolemaic Egypt, the Baktrians could establish their own empire stretching from the roof of the world to, possibly, the far shores of the Mediterranean.
Baktra, Bukhara, Maracanda, Eucratidea.
The Baktrian armies field a strong army of traditional hellenic troops, with walls of pikemen, flanked by spears and shock cavalry, supported by eastern locals. While their line infantry have less variety to choose from than the other Successor factions, the Baktria make up for it by having above-average skirmisher units. Horse archers, Eastern skirmishers, and light melee cavalry are able to outmaneuver slower forces, and bring the hammer down upon the anvil of the Pike Phalanx that much more quickly.
