Requests from Pharaoh are definitely the order of the day here. He will demand fish, troops, grain, copper, figs and weapons. There are also a couple of attempts by the rival dynasty to extort some money from you – these are best ignored, as compliance will result in your kingdom rating taking a severe battering. If you refuse to bow to this tyranny, the Lower Egyptian army will attack by sea from the northern edge of the map. A few warships will deal with it without any great problems.
2008 BC sees a troop request from Pharaoh – I fulfilled it successfully, and didn’t receive any other requests of this nature. Fail though, and it’s probable that you’ll be asked again.
Those ore deposits really come in handy for getting plenty of gold in the treasury, but don’t go over the top – remember that you will be needing some copper mines in order to produce weapons (required by the infantry companies) and to meet Pharaoh’s requests for the metal.
Once again, MRed94 has compiled a list detailing all the requests.
