Amazons adds three new Amazon factions to the vanilla game: Amazonia, the Valkyrie, and Westwind. These belong to a new culture, that of the Amazons, with new units, generals, retinue members, and traits just for them. My inspiration for Amazonia was the Amazons of Greek legend. I tried to keep them in the spirit of those legends. So just as legend has it, the Amazons are outstanding archers and horsewomen and also use the Labyris, a small double bladed axe. The Valkyrie are an ancient off shoot of the Amazonia faction and the insperation for the later Norse legends. The Westwind amazons were inspired by the "Westwind guards from the "Recluse" series of books.
