  • We can farm our own food but the tools we use to farm sure aren't the best.
  • I see you only have 15 people in your community, could I help you farm?
  • We can trade some of our kola nuts and wheat with other tribes for their animals
  • We are going to produce the tools by smelting the iron ore
  • Small families joined together to overcome bigger challenges such as stopping a flooded river or mining gold.
  • We are mining iron to produce iron tools for our farmers
  • We are also building a wall around our village to protect ourselves
  • With these new iron tools we can create a surplus crops and not everyone is going to have to be a farmer.
  • Now that I don't have to be a farmer I can do another job like weaving 
  • Living next to a river is very helpful because it acts as a highway for our trade routes which help our cities grow. 
  • I have brought some iron tools as well as yams 
  • I collect taxes from my citizens to build armies who will conquer other lands making me an even richer king
