Today 5 ounces of gold were traded for 15 ounces of lapis lazuli to decorate our pharaoh's coffin. Another 100 bushels of wheat were traded for 10 ounces of lapis lazuli from Afghanistan. They were currently low on food so our merchants got a little more lapis lazuli. The value of gold has gone up since a major gold mine has collapsed. Inside the mine there were 10 tons of gold and 90 ounces of mined and polished lapis lazuli. If you have gold, be aware of its new value.

Royal gossip

Recently, Ramses has been ordering statues of him to be as tall as the gods! What kind of a madness? Is Ramses plotting to overthrow Ra and Osiris ? He might be secretly working on a temple to honor himself, based off of the large quantities of stone and sculptors he has commanded to the mountainside. Does he have the right to do this, or is this a violation of the gods? Builder: “ He plans to have four giant statues built into the mountain and statues of gods exactly the same height as him!” Very odd, gods are supposed to be bigger and more powerful than Pharaohs. Is Ramses just gone mad and haughty, or does he have something evil up his crown?

Eye on the Enemy

Dear citizens,

Don’t fear any of our enemies for we will defeat them soon. Our powerful army will kill them all off or make them surrender if THEY ACTUALLY FIGHT HARD ENOUGH THIS TIME! Our devastation for the peace treaty is too great, but we have plans and we are prepping our armies for war to capture other groups and cities. Since we are known to have strong armies and we have the Nile and deserts surrounding us, we safe here. But, we are planning to capture MORE land to be even safer.

Sincerely,

Your king, Ramses II

Flashback

Today we are still finding artifacts from Hatshepsut and her temples. Tuthmosis III definitely had something to do with his step-mother’s mysterious death at such a young age. We are finding more and more evidence to prove this. Also, there are scratches and empty spots on the temple, and even some knocked down statues and ruins. Apparently Tuthmosis III hired a man to kill this “pharaoh” while she was still ruling. Keep tuned for more information on previous pharaohs!

Do you like the changes Ramses II has made to Egypt?

Most “commoners” do not like the changes that his reign has brought. For example, when Ramses took all the credit for the Battle of Kadesh. A few wounded and worn soldiers have complained about their “perfect general”

Let’s see what everyone thinks:
