King Gilgamesh

King Gilgamesh is very pleased with the latest victory over the Akkads. The king of Uruk is also looking to expand the Sumerian territory even more than we have now. "We have control of Mesopotamia" he said "now it is time to expand into other areas of the world. We will be strong and we will fight until we prevail." Some people consider King Gilgamesh as 2/3 god and 1/3 man.

Travel

A new way to travel in Sumer is to travel by camel. A lot of people like the idea and they do not have to stop for food or water as much. The people also like how they are harmless to humans and they have a great amount of stamina. The camels can also carry a ton of things. So they are the perfect tool for traveling merchants!

Currency

In Sumer we have upped our currency a lot we have a lot more money than we used to have. 15 pounds of silver, 5 pounds of gold, and 30 pounds of bronze are all alike. This is a great thing because we can now pay for things in multiple ways. This is a great step-forward in currency for the Sumerian civilization.
