    Dear Journal,
    Now that I have been leading the tribe for the past 5 years, the elders have finally made the decision to build a permanent camp. They say it will provide safety to the English people, and it will seal the future of our posterity. Although the gods have permitted me to gain knowledge of everlasting life, I still wish for the comfort of the future generations.
    The camp has been built, and a few permanent structures have also been built. A new group of warriors are being trained as well. The tribe is in agreement of the name of the camp, it shall be called Francishire, and I shall be it's one and only chief, finally presiding over the elders in my rightful place.

    Love,
    Frankie

    Dear Journal,
    The Council of Elders has decided to begin conducting research to better improve our lives. The first idea to be researched is the idea of a supreme being, higher than even I, who resides in the heavens and is all-controlling. They call it "Mysticism".

    Your Wonderful Ruler,
    Frankie

    Dear Journal,
    Much has happened in the past few years. Our great culture's influence has expanded, and more recently I discovered we are not alone on this land. A smelly hairy man named Hannibal's scouts approached Francishire a few days ago, requesting an audience. He had little to offer, except for insults from the Chinese people calling our lands "cute". In other news, the CoE has completed their research on gods, and are now researching the idea of many gods, what they call "Polytheism".

    With patience,
    Frankie

    Good start. (I haven't got Beyond the Sword yet so what's 'unrestricted leaders')

    Unrestricted Leaders is where you can choose any civ and leader. Examples are Ghengis Khan of the English, or Ghandi of the Americans.
