The Papyrus Maker is a building type in Pharaoh.

General InformationEdit

Papyrus makers use reeds to produce papyrus, which in turn is used to keep Scribal Schools running and to build and supply Libraries.

While most industries generally follow a relatively low ratio for goods-producing services vs. their raw material suppliers, reeds can be gathered very quickly if built close to reeds. Depending on location, just one Reed Gatherer may be able to support multiple Papyrus Makers. Papyrus makers, in turn, operate best when placed close to a source of reeds (be they reed makers or storage yards). Fully staffed papyrus makers produce 565 units per year by default, or 47% per month.

At a default price of 165 debens per 100 units sold, papyrus is one of the most lucrative export options in the game. Only weapons, copper, and wood fetch higher prices, and papyrus is available for manufacture on many more maps than copper and wood, and weapons sales are marred by the very high cost of the copper required to make them. The profitability of papyrus is further aided by the fact that the reeds required to make them are some of the cheapest goods in the game (at 23 debens per 100 units purchased), to the point where selling papyrus made from imported reeds is more profitable than selling most other goods made from scratch.

Like all industrial buildings, papyrus makers are undesirable to live close to. They are prone to catching fire.
