The Charon Ferry is an arrow/transport ship that is exclusively available to the Fall of the Trident campaign in Age of Mythology. It makes its only appearance in the tenth scenario, Strangers. Charon Ferries can ferry 30 units, more even than an Enclosed Deck upgraded Transport Ship (20 units) and Pirate Ship (24 units). With the same upgrade, the Charon Ferry can transport 60 units, which is by far the highest capacity of any unit or object in the game.

Arkantos, Ajax, and Chiron have been trapped in the Underworld by Gargarensis, and try to force their way out of it. They are assisted in their effort by Shades, and when they reach the River Styx, Charon Ferries. The ferrymen offer to transport their heroes, but also warn them of nearby monsters.

Four Ferries are used to kill Leviathans and Krakens that lurk the Styx's waters.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Their appearance is identical to the Lost Ships summoned by Ancestors.
    • Given that Charon is from Greek mythology, it is strange that the ferries look like the Egyptian Kebenit.

History[edit | edit source]

Charon is the ferryman of the Greek underworld. For a price - a gold coin - he carries the newly dead across the river Styx to their afterlives in Hades' shadowy realm.
