In The Battle of Polytopia, tribes are the civilizations players are able to choose as their game characters.
There are 10 tribes to choose from. Four tribes (Bardur, Xin-Xi, Imperius, and Oumaji) are free of cost and included with the game. Six additional tribes (Kickoo, Hoodrick, Luxidoor, Vengir, Zebasi and Ai-mo) are available as in-app purchases.
Each tribe has their own biome with a unique set of terrain. The mix of resources, types and amounts of different available items is also unique for each tribe.
Your choice of tribe determines what your surroundings will be like when you first spawn in on your newly generated world. For example, if you choose the Xin-Xi tribe, who start out with the climbing tech, your first city will most likely spawn in a mountainous area.
For the tribe backgrounds go to Research.
