Traders, explorers, and adventurers, the Roving Clans are nomadic and mercantile. Traversing Auriga on their great beasts of burden, the Clans bring commerce and hard-headed negotiation to the far corners of the world.


Lore[edit | edit source]

Plying roads and sea lanes with skill and courage, they are ever on the lookout for new resources, new products, new markets, and new customers. Wherever the Clans pass, markets spring up, commerce blossoms, and the strange and wondrous goods from the many strange and wondrous peoples of Auriga are traded. The Roving Clans are so entwined in the business dealings of Auriga, that a tiny piece of every transaction somehow makes it into their coffers.

While their preference is for peace and trade, the Roving Clans should not be underestimated in war. With rapid, mounted units giving them an advantage in speed, they make difficult targets and frustrating enemies. Even their great cities can move, perched on the backs of giant Setseke scarabs -- an exploit unmatched by another nation.

Patient, clever, and wily, the Roving Clans bring sophistication -- and manipulation -- to the peoples of Auriga.

Faction Specialties[edit | edit source]

Name Type Effect Lore

By furnishing their sellswords with opulent digs, mouth-watering delicacies, and extra coin, Roving Clan mercenaries are that little bit extra motivated to perform.

Brace Yourself Trait +50% DustSmall.png Dust from city upkeep during winter season

-25% Trade Route Bonus on city trade routes during winter season

When the ice and snow come, caravan movement is slowed and the tents of the Roving Clans are exposed to the frigid winds. It is a difficult time; Trade route revenue drops and it is more expensive to maintain cities.

Insider Trading Trait Additional information the the Marketplace use In exchange for small "donations", traders in the Roving Clans' marketplaces will give up information on who's buying and selling.
Keys to the Market Trait Can use the Market Ban option

Another empire getting too big for their boots? Perhaps we should ban them from the market and see how they fare then!

Freelance Guards.png The idea of turning troops not needed for caravan defense into flagless mercenaries is logical. After all, they are needed to protect the Clans' long-term commercial interests.

Effects:
  • Unlocks Privateers armies composed exclusively of mercenaries can carry a neutral flag, preventing other empires (even Allies) from knowing which empire owns them.
