Travian: Path to Pandora – Prequel

My name is Shu, I am a Natarian bird of prey.

I used to live in the village Nekhen in the Travian lands a few miles from the Natarian capital Atum. My whole life was dedicated to serving my beloved Natarian emperor Asur.
Ten years ago, I was sent on a secret mission to discover a new land for my tribe, a land where we could thrive again. It was a long and difficult mission, and now that I am 40 years old, I am returning to tell my story.

New tribe: A few words on the Egyptians

As we all know by now: This year‘s Travian Special will feature not one but two new tribes. Last time around, we introduced a little historical background on The Huns and today we take a look at the Egyptians.

The Egyptians are known for their massive pyramids so it is no surprise that they were expert builders. Yet, they also mastered economy and find new ways to use the river Nile to benefit their agriculture. This was largely the effort of bureaucrats and effective organization.

Their empire saw a decline after its hay day and became a Roman providence under Cleopatra, so we have a built in –  if uneasy – relationship between the Egyptians and our classic tribe.

Due to the Egyptian skills when it comes to manage an economy, their population is massive, their resource output is big and their units are produced in an effective, meaning cheap way.

We bet, our support players are already looking forward to send their Egyptians into battle, where they will meet with Gauls, Teutons, Romans and of course Huns!
