Now that you have mastered the techniques for farming along the river, your civilization is among the fastest growing and most advanced in the world. Your increasing wealth makes it possible to trade abroad. The Pharaoh requests that you take advantage of your position near the coast to help gather resources for a wondrous new temple he is planning. Your contribution is 1000 Gold and 1000 Stone . Gold can be obtained by trading with the Minoans, Canaanites, or Libyans, but they are all likely to be antagonistic. Stone can be found nearby.
The player starts off in the upper centre of the map. To the east is a plain with huntable animals and Stone Mines. To the west is the Libyan base. They start with a Ballista, and will bring it if they attack by land.
The only way to gather gold here is by trading with other docks, so if you decide to attack the enemy bases, make sure you don't destroy their docks. Instead, sink their ships and start trading.
