Not only do Total War: Pharaoh faction leader starting positions influence who you'll conquer and ally with during the early stages of a campaign, but they also determine the path you might take to your goal.
Total War: Pharaoh Faction Leader Starting Positions
A leader like Rameses might find it easier to dethrone Pharaoh Merneptah simply due to his proximity to his target, while taking on the same goal as, say, Suppiluliuma also involves planning for a long march.
The above image reveals of Total War: Pharaoh's faction leader starting positions as they are present in-game at launch.
Playing a Hittite faction means that you'll initially roam across the northern part of the map, with Suppiluliuma's starting position being the northernmost in the game.
Canaanite leaders find themselves in between the Egyptian and Hittite factions, which might put them in a bit of a more challenging spot.
Alliances and rivalries come and go over the course of the game, but having to worry about potentially substantial incursions from both the north and the south makes for a more adrenaline-fueled time in ancient Egypt.
Total War: Pharaoh's Egyptian faction leader starting positions offer a lot of expansion opportunities in both the central and southern part of the map.
Ramesses starts the campaign in Sinai, on the border with Canaan. Near him, Seti rules over Hardai.
Tausrett begins her campaign in the deserts of Yebu, while Amenmesse eyes the seat of Pharaoh from the southernmost starting position.
These are Total War: Pharaoh's faction leader starting positions as available when the game launches.
Depending on Creative Assembly's post-launch plans, DLCs might see new playable leaders making the map even more lively.
