Overall strategy[edit]

With the advent of ironworking comes Thih'kiam-P'openg (ancient Chinese: "Iron Swordsmen") named so for the weapons they use in war, which are all-new iron blades. These weapons are now crafted from iron which is more available and which are also deadlier in combat, making them an excellent assault unit in combat.

Like all sword units, Thih'kiam-P'openg are best used to counter enemy light infantry, as well as buildings, but suffer greatly if attacked by cavalry.
