Navigate the winding rivers and dense jungles of Bengal as you build a thriving economy to fuel unstoppable armies of elephants. The Bengali unique unit is the Ratha, a sturdy chariot that can switch between melee and ranged attack modes.

The Bengalis focus on elephant and naval units. Bengali elephants, in addition to benefiting from a strong technology tree, are more resistant to anti-elephant bonus damage than those of other civilizations. Additionally, their attack speed can be boosted by researching the unique technology Paiks, which also improves Rathas. Bengali ships regenerate hitpoints, increasing their longevity. These strengths are built on the back of a strong economy.

Bengali Town Centers automatically spawn additional Villagers whenever each next Age is reached, and the Bengalis can support a larger economy after researching the unique technology Mahayana, which reduces the amount of population space that each Villager takes up. Finally, Bengali trade units and those of their allies generate food in addition to the gold that is accumulated during each trip to/from an allied Market.
