Upon completing many, many years of faithful service to the Pharoah, he has given you several hundred deben, and a very large estate in the Lower Kingdom.
The site of your estate is located on the ruins of an old fortress and many walls remain. There have been reports of Canaanite raiders on the Northern border, but these have as yet been unsubstatiated. It is best however, to build up the walls ;)
Build bridges across all rivers so that immigrants can come to your city.
The only thing your Pharaoh asks of you for such a wealthy retirement, is that you make your city look beautiful, with many plazas, gardens and statutes.
For the Stats or antything else read the included text file.
Somewhat hard but winnable, there are alot of Malaria problems if you do not manage it well with Apothacaries and such early. Also it must just be a glitch but if you build on the south western island people will not settle there.
Widespread malaria makes it tough in the beggining.
Loved the story line and the idea, not something you would be waiting for but once made its... addicting?
Map Design: 5
Loved the way the map was designed, the idea of building a city on a destroyed fortress makes it, just lovable, it adds some mysteriousness to the gameplay (IDK how to describe it lmao)
Instructions were simple, the story line is probobly what made the map, if there was no story behind it it would just be a cool map, adding the story line makes it much more enjoyable - no matter how simple the story was.
A unique scenario, it was not the map layout (although I liked the premade walls, im a defence freak) it was largly the simple story you put behind it, Bravo!

You are unable to acquire 60 Kingdom without access to Ra and gifts to pharaoh having diminishing returns (starting at +5). I even switched the difficulty to very easy to see if that would fix the issue but to no avail.
You start with 100k db and can build anything you wish. Exports of wood make funding never an issue. There are zero events to comply to, also making it impossible to acquire 60 culture. However, you do have access to basically any resource.
Map Design: 4
The map is unique in it's "ruins of an old city" feel. An abundance of resources are available in all areas of the map making it not challenging whatsoever. If aspects of the environment were not so blocky it would earn a 5
Not much of a story or purpose provided but thorough instructions are given in the text file.
You could easily play this as a sandbox but it does not offer an actual mission sadly
