Golden Age has three factions you can choose from. Each faction has its own specialty that gives it both an advantage and a disadvantage in the game. Picking the faction is only part of the equation to success, but how they work together determines the overall victory of their Alliances and Kingdoms.
Knights Templar: The Knight Templars are specialists in Offensive. As offensive specialists, the Knights have extra options for trainable Infantry and overall have a higher fighting capacity than the other factions. Their special building, the Arena, also gives them the opportunity to produce weekly more soldiers than the other two alliances, giving them a greater offensive advantage. More recruitable troops means more trainable troops, and thus, a potentially larger army.
Ibero Alliance: The Ibero Alliance specializes in Defense. As defense specialists, the Ibero have fuller and stronger wall units than the other two alliances. Furthermore, as defense specialists, the Ibero are preferred for defending major spaces, such as wonder zone chokes.
Rhine Commerce Guild: The Rhine Commerce Guild is considerably the "neutral" faction. Rhine specializes in resources, but otherwise have no offensive or defensive advantage. Instead, Rhines possess the potential to accumulate a much greater supply of resources and at a faster rate than the other two factions. As a result, the Rhine can potentially provide for much larger armies because of their overall access to large amounts of resources. The Rhine's special buildings include four Government buildings that increase each resource production a set amount, the supplementary resource boost increases with each building's level (the highest of which is 30).
