The Snake constructs his castles in a swirly shape, resembling a serpent or a clover leaf. His keep is bordered by a combination of narrow walls and a moat, which encloses his buildings. Perimeter turrets are placed at regular intervals, which are filled with archers. Gatehouses also have a small guard of archers and slingers. The keep is also heavily defended with units, since attack forces are assembled there.


The Snake runs a modest economy focused on military. He builds 2 quarries along with woodcutters and supplies his peasants with numerous apple orchards. He builds many fletchers and poleturners, and he also buys in spears and bows in large batches. He also provides a small variety of food by constantly buying in cheese. The Snake takes taxes from his peasants.

Unit compositionsEdit

The Snake uses fast and relatively cheap units in droves, unleashing armies after one another. His mixture of Arabian and European units gives him a devastating variety of troops. He particularly likes to use archers as the backbone of the army, as well as he will send out squads of slingers, slaves and catapults to terrorize industries.
