Firelock Armed Populace (ETW Unit)
These people are the common populace with whatever dangerous weapons they can obtain by fair means or foul. If a leader has reached the point of asking his people to act as this kind of militia, things are indeed desperate! If the governed have reached this point on their own, then matters are truly desperate for their leaders!
Firelock Armed Populace are the Eastern version of the European [[Firelock Armed Populace (ETW Unit). They are available once a settlement is under siege and the amount spawned is dependent upon the happiness level of the city. For example a city with a high level of happiness will spawn more Firelock Armed Populace. They are notoriously poor in combat and will rout very easily. As a result of this they should be used for the desperate support of a unit, or cannon fodder due to their expendability.
