Warrior Society are a type of elite Infantry in Empire: Total War.
These are the strongest, bravest and most ferocious men of the tribe, proficient in all forms of combat.
Members of a Warrior Society are the tribal equivalent of professional soldiers. The practiced and deadly men in the tribe, they have a position of great power. They provide military leadership and war chiefs are chosen from their ranks, to keep discipline, organise hunting parties and oversee ceremonies.
Warrior societies quickly gained a reputation for unrelenting ferociousness. They would literally tether themselves to one spot on a battlefield, and not move until the battle was over. They would battle against any enemy that came at them and never even consider retreat. They were skilled with a number of weapons including the tomahawk and the war club.
While these warriors have fairly good statistics in a melee, they are severely hampered by their low numbers. Even if they can survive getting close enough to inflict damage, they usually have to fight an uphill battle because of this.
