Age of Empires IV:
The Dai Viet were famous for their defensive wars of attrition against the Chinese and the Mongols. This faction primarily represents the Đại Việt empire of northern Vietnam, but also takes inspiration from other polities in the region as well. The Vietnamese are historically an underdog civilization, and not all too popular, though they were featured in AOEII and Civilization 6. In this concept I take inspiration from their history of guerrilla warfare and unconventional tactics. They have a heavy emphasis on defense, including the unique ability to place "Bamboo Traps", and shoot poisoned arrows from garrisoned units.
