Name: Thirteen Colonies
From Game: Empire: Total War
Religion:Protestant
Culture: European
Playable:

The Thirteen Colonies is an unplayable faction in Empire: Total War and is a colony/protectorate of Great Britain.

Overview

The thirteen colonies are relatively prosperous at the beginning of the game (possessing two major cities as well as several fur and ore producers), and can provide Britain a large economic advantage should Britain complete its mission, especially in the early game. The Thirteen Colonies are one of the strongest minor nations, with several multi-slot cities, desirable lands, ports, schools, and a solid starting position. The AI typically hands the British the thirteen colonies extremely early in the campaign, giving the British a very strong foothold in North America.

Historically Thirteen Colonies were, as the name implies, thirteen British colonies established in the eastern border of North America between 1607 and 1732. These colonies, in order from the oldest to the most newly established were:

  • Virginia
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire
  • Maryland
  • Connecticut
  • Rhode Island
  • Delaware
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania
  • Georgia.
