Menat Khufu (Beni Hasan)
Monuments: 2 small Obelisks
Your initial task at Menat Khufu should be to expand the scope of the farming and prepare to fill famine requests for food. Assuming this is done quickly enough, and a few Storage Yards are set up to receive the food, you should be able to meet all of the requests in a timely fashion. You may have to sacrifice giving your own city food during the first year to fulfill the needs of other Egyptian cities suffering famine. Do not hesitate to do so.
Once food production is adequate, begin establishing beer and linen industries. Beer and linen are needed by your people, are valuable exports and are needed to replenish the burial provisions stolen from the Pyramid in your city. Income received from exports should be used to purchase the granite and wood needed to construct two small Obelisks in your city.
Efficient city layout and centralized exporting will help you overcome some of the geographical limitations of the Menat Khufu region. If you ensure high-quality floods by appeasing Osiris (a Temple Complex dedicated to him is invaluable!), filling famine requests will be significantly easier.
