Rhodos under Agathokles is a custom civilization created by Mathetes tou Megalou Alexandrou.


Dawn of Man[]

Affluent and magnanimous Agathokles, may the virtues of Rhodos live in you! You are a politician of Rhodos who have seen the ebb and flow of Rhodos' fortune, having witnessed the Siege of Rhodos, Rhodian triumph and the construction of the Kolossos Rhodios. You have also embraced the Greek virtue of generousity, having provided cheap grain to the city of Ephesos and brought glory to the name of Rhodos.

Beneficent Agathokles, We Rhodioi grew wealthy through our policy of pursuing balance ensuring that no one power becomes too great to rule the seas. Rhodos is given a chance to rise again and we Rhodioi wish for a new golden age. Will you bring Rhodos to greatness in this new world and make it the beacon of the seas? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Mathalx Rhodos Icon

Rhodos is a faction that focuses on maritime trade. As its cities spawn Great People faster based on the amount of gold each city earns from trade, Rhodos is encouraged to trade with centers of commerce to maximize the gold gain and thus Great People generation. Its reliance on maritime trade is supported by its powerful Trieremiolia unit, which can traverse the coast more quickly and are significantly stronger than almost any contemporary naval units.

As Rhodos grows richer, its ability to procure more trade routes also give Rhodos a deceptive edge in culture. 2-3 Cargo Ships can equate to a Great Writer's Political Treatise, allowing Rhodos to pick a few more policies than an average civ without an edge in culture. This makes Rhodos in a sense a hybrid, taking half of Venice and Polish trait without the Venetian downside.
