Native American Tribesmen are a type of militia in Empire: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

Tribesmen are a melee unit, relying primarily on force of numbers over skill.

When the tribe is threatened all men are called to arms. Young or old matters little as long as they have the strength and will to hold a weapon. Some men may have never seen battle, and only have weapons used in the hunt. Pride in protecting the tribe and the possible spoils that come from distinguishing oneself in battle are enough to drive tribesmen forward.

Historically, tattoos commemorated the brave actions of a tribesman. Fish bones or rock splinters were used to cut the design, and soot or natural dyes coloured the wound. If one tribe defeated another in battle all those on the winning side were given tattoos to commemorate the victory. Animal totems were another popular theme, giving the wearer the strength of the creature in the tattoo design.

General InformationEdit

Although they are classified by the game as militia, Native American Tribesmen are the Native American equivalent of Firelock Armed Citizenry or other mobs: relatively weak units that spawn for free when a Native American faction's region's capital is attacked. Though they are high in number, their low morale and defense ensure that they flee quickly when met with a prepared foe.
