Ramses in the Valley
6 Stately Manors
Grand Royal Burial Tomb
** Best Infantry and Archer units carries over from Abu Simbel. **
Tie on your royal governor's cape tightly - this mission is going to take you for a ride! There are waves of special events to wade through which will serve to keep you on your toes as you struggle to build the largest tomb in the game. You'll even need troops to send to fight Ramses' battles in foreign lands.
This mission can be broken down into four phases. First you need to develop a city of a few thousand people and get your exports in place. Pottery, beer, and bricks are the three commodities you are best set up to export. You may want to set bazaars to not buy pottery and beer for a while to maximize your exports. Once your city's economy is in the black, you can build the tomb industries (paint, lamps, artisans, and masons). You'll need to import both oil and henna. Make sure you build plenty of docks to keep the trade flowing freely. Keep yourself out of debt and make sure the tomb progresses smoothly.
Once the tomb is complete, it's time to import the burial provisions. Once those are in place, you can go for the fourth and final objective: six stately manors. It's probably easiest to achieve this goal if you have set aside a portion of your city to house your wealthy citizens. If you have done this ahead of time you will only need to provide the full range of services to a single block of houses.
