Stepped Pyramid is a monument type in Pharaoh.
The stepped pyramid is the second type of monument chronologically available in Pharaoh. Instead of utilizing bricks like Mastabas, stepped pyramids require plain stone to build. Stepped pyramids also require wood for carpenters to build ramps and reach higher levels.
To prepare for the site, peasants clear the top soil until they expose the bedrock of the site, cut grooves in the bedrock, fill it worth water, remove the water (to level the site), fill the grooves with rubble, then cut a tomb into the bedrock. Stonemasons then lay plain stone hauled to the site by peasants layer by layer, with carpenters building ramps to allow the stone blocks to reach higher levels. Peasants only collect plain stone from storage yards that hold four blocks or more. The pyramid is completed once the last layer is laid.
Stepped pyramids come in five sizes: small, medium, large, pyramid complex, and grand pyramid complex.
