Monuments: 1 large Obelisk
This large area sees frequent military activity. The problem here is that there are several places where the potential invaders might attack. Depending on where you decide to build, some of the waterborne invasion forces might land on an unoccupied island. If they do, you are in luck: they will eventually get bored and go away.
Don't count on enemy soldiers meekly going away too often, though. Eventually, you'll probably expand your city onto some of the islands. You can place Forts on island settlements to guard them, or build Transport Wharves to shuttle troops around. The latter can take a lot of time, so you'll have to figure out a layout that will allow you to respond to threats in a timely manner.
Invasions begin within the first few years of the mission. You should try to bring your military to maximum strength as soon as possible, because the Kushites will attack in large numbers.
A strong naval presence will be necessary. Always remember to target enemy transport ships first. Remember that when it comes to conducting warfare, a little help from Seth never hurts!
Requests for goods such as game meat, debens, linen, and barley will demand your attention. Fulfilling these requests will improve your Kingdom Rating, create new trade routes, and sometimes earn you gifts of valuable copper. Be sure to help out the new city of Sawu whenever possible.
Fortunately, there are rich deposits of gold in the area, and harnessing these deposits should be done as early as possible. Natural resources are spread throughout the region, so you may have to build separate communities simultaneously to take advantage of the land's resources.
Once you've got your economy and military running smoothly, the only other major task will be meeting the population requirement. Eight thousand is a lot of people, so manage your space carefully!
