ost o fyou will already have seen the work VitruviusAIA has done on perfecting his housing and structures charts. They are a very useful set of tables, telling you how your housing influences your rating, their chances of getting plague or malaria and how they influence each other. The second set tells you all about area effects of the various structures on issues like desirability.
You can find the Housing Charts and the Structure Charts in the Strategy section.

Egyptian Online Roleplaying?
ngel Draco just mailed me this intriguing link.
Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the experience was that I was not forced to continually watch my back worrying about who was going to kill me. Instead, just in the few hours that the test went on, a basic economy sprang up between players who had certain resources and those who didn't yet.This sounds like a game that could catch the attention of our pharaoh lovers.
