Well, our community consists of 100-200 people. We work together to clear the fields, plant the seeds, and trade for the things we need. We farm corn. Working together helps us produce an excess amount of crops, though it would be easier if we had better tools. We have lots of corn to trade because of our system of teamwork We are normally self-reliant but, sometimes we need to join with other communities for help we need.
Our community has lots of salt but almost no crops. But, we need more to survive, what crops do you have? And how much do you have?
Now that we're united we can also protect ourselves from floods and work together to mine. We can construct moats and dams to protect us from floods. Then, we can mine for iron so that we can make new tools. Additionally, we can create weapons to fight against invaders. Also, with the iron we mine, we can have iron smelters make weapons and tools. This will make farming easier and we can use it for protection.
Thanks for the help, now that we're united it will be much easier to defend ourselves.
Okay, fine. Here.
You shall not pass without paying taxes!
Now that I have this gold I can pay for an army. That army can conquer new land for me. Also, I can collect tribute in the conquered lands. Tribute is the people paying for my acceptance as their new ruler.
