Iunet is a mission found in Pharaoh.
Pharaoh Khufu has taken the throne, and, as foretold by seers of Horus and Ra, our people have already begun to suffer under his oppression.
Khufu has ordered that a Royal Governor be dispatched at once to Iunet, to defend our land against Kushite invaders. Iunet can support a small fishing industry, which should feed this settlement for a time. If the Kushites invade by water, however, the river may become unsafe for fishing boats, and shore areas may be better used to support a fleet of warships. If food becomes scarce, cattle may also be raised to provide meat, though the herds require much straw for fodder, and straw is difficult to grow in this land. You should seek other cities with which to trade for straw, for you will also need this to make bricks for your mastaba.
The city of Byblos in Lebanon, land of the cedars, has begun trading with the powerful empires of the east. These are Assyria and Ur, in the land called 'Mesopotamia', between the two great rivers, and from them the finest ivory may be obtained via Byblos. With the arrival of rare and exotic luxury goods such as this, Iunet is sure to thrive.
In the capital, the Egyptian people have begun to enjoy a board game called senet. This game is normally enjoyed over a pitcher of beer, in a public gathering place called a 'Senet House'. Such places may provide a welcome diversion for the people of Iunet from the tyranny of Khufu's authority.
Pharaoh has ordered that countless quarries be dug at On, in the Delta region, to harvest a vast supply of fine white limestone. Only the gods know what endeavor Pharaoh has planned for the use of this stone. It is rumored that he is planning a colossal building project on the plateau outside Rostja, that he may usurp the renown his father, the wise and benevolent Snofru has earned from the completion of his two noble pyramids.
