The Indus River Valley
Though we do not hunt wild animals, we still raise some animals like chickens and goats to eat. We don't eat beef, but we do eat fish!
You could join our fleet of experienced farmers or become an artisan and sell your crafts in our thriving trade centers!
Our government is non-violent and we have no military
Our rulers control the trade and religion of our society and make sure everything runs smoothly
Each ruler carries a seal representing their power so you will know who our great rulers are
We have many different rulers who have power over different areas of our civilization
We have many cities but our two biggest cities are Mohenjo-Daro and Harrapa
You can join one of the large civilizations in one of these cities or join a smaller civilization
Our cities are farth enough apart to allow trade between them but close enough that we can have central rulers
