Faction and Faction Abilities – The Lion’s Share and King of Men
There are two main elements to Agamemnon’s playstyle, The Lion’s Share, and King of Men.
The Lion’s Share
Using The Lion’s Share you can entice or force other factions to join your vessels. This is important because vessels obey you and give you resources at every turn. Since they are under your control you can use Agamemnon to extort your vessels for more resources. Use The Lion’s Share screen to receive a lump sum of resources from your vessels. It is a great way to get more bronze or food. However, keep in mind that if you use the export option too many times and too often, your vessels might turn on you. Once they turn on you it’ll become harder to make them obey and get resources from them. Moreover, you’ll need plenty of influence to get them in line.
King of Men
Using the King of Men ability you can appoint heroes to court positions. Your appointed heroes will get bonuses and provide factionwide effects. Being in court will increase a hero’s motivation.
