Peasant Archers

Though they are but humble villagers, the Moon Dragon herself guides their aim.

In Grand Cathay, archery, and the use of missile weapons, is traditionally the domain of women. Though men can, and do, make up some of the empire’s missile troops – most notably those who wield the gunpowder weapons of the Great Bastion – the majority of archers and crossbow troops are female. This is the work of the Moon Dragon Quai Yin, herself an exceptional archer, who has for centuries encouraged girls across Cathay to master the art of bow and crossbow, as well as blessing their efforts with her magic.

Attributes

  • Expendable
    Witnessing friendly expendable units rout does not reduce other units' leadership, unless they are themselves expendable.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
  • Yin
    This unit counts as a Yin unit for the purpose of Battle Harmony proximity.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Harmony: Yin
    This unit counts as a Yin unit and gains increased reload skill and leadership near Yang units.
  • Weak Against Armour
    This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
  • Expendable
    Witnessing friendly expendable units rout does not reduce other units' Leadership, unless they are themselves expendable.
