New Minor Civilization: Tengri Shrine

To celebrate the rework of the native alliance system we have added a new minor civilization, the Tengri Shrine!

“Tengrism is an ancient animistic religion that was widespread in North and Central Asia. The sky god “tengri” is its main deity and was worshiped next to many natural spirits and souls. In Tengrism and related beliefs high elevations like mountain peaks are considered sacred places due to their proximity to the sky. The “ovoo” is a man-made stone heap that represents a peak and therefore acts as a shrine. The political legitimacy of rulers in Turko-Mongol societies and states was connected to Tengri and comparable to the Chinese “mandate of heaven” or European “divine right of kings”. The royal Mongol chronicle from the 13th century CE claims for instance that the ancestors of Genghis Khan are descendants of Tengri.”

  • Units: Tatar Archer, Tengri Wolf
  • Technologies: Shaman Drums, Kumis, Wind Horses


You can ally with this new minor civilization on the following maps:

  • Siberia
  • Silk Road
  • Mongolia
  • [NEW!] Central Asia
  • [NEW!] Yamal
  • Eurasian Steppe [Knights of the Mediterranean]

5 New Maps!

[table][tr][td]Knights of the Mediterranean[/td][td]Portugal: A narrow region along the west coast of the Iberian Peninsula.

Description: In Portugal players may invest in a strong navy and fishing economy to secure the narrow but bountiful sea. Equally a military presence on land can secure map control and establish dominance over the long trade route for a long-term advantage.

Settlements: Wittelsbach, Habsburg.
Outlaws: Inquisitor, Highwayman Rider.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Knights of the Mediterranean[/td][td]Rhine: The northeast side of the river sees a lush, thick temperate forest with Gold Mines, while in the southwest of the map lies a portion of hunt-rich plains.


Description: The wide Rhine river containing a river trade route cuts through this region and divides the Rhineland into its two biomes: a grassy plain to the southwest and a lush temperate forest to the northeast. Teams always start on the same side of the Rhine, but the starting positions alternate between the grassy plain and temperate forest. The two biomes offer different resource distributions, so be prepared to adapt to your surroundings.

Settlements: Vasa, Wettin, Habsburg, Bourbon, Hanover.
Outlaws: Inquisitor, Crabat.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Knights of the Mediterranean[/td][td]Karelian Lakes: Many frozen lakes dot the landscape of this open map.

Description: A large number of frozen lakes dot the landscape of this frigid open region. In between the lakes a lucrative trade route winds and may prove a point of early contention. Karelia offers players plentiful amounts of natural resources they may exploit. The large patches of ice leave players vulnerable to enemy raids, keep a watchful eye on the map!

Settlements: Oldenburg, Vasa, Jagiellon.
Outlaws: Highwayman Rider, Cossack Rider.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]Central Asia: Teams are separated by two shallow rivers that flow into the Aral Sea in this arid region.


Description: Central Asia is an arid, mineral rich region. Players will find defending their town relatively easy, but establishing control of the resource rish regions of the map will be important. Teams are separated by two shallow rivers that flow from a grassy plateau to the Aral Sea. In the plateau and along the river banks, players can find Gold Mines and lush vegetation. In the northwest, players will find roaming animals to hunt and Salt Mines.

Settlements: Tengri, Sufi.
Outlaws: Wokou Horseman, Wokou Monk.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]Yamal: Players begin in the thin Yamal peninsula. Crossing either branch of the sea provides opportunity to players to expand their bases.
