    Folks, we have been a little lax in our development of culture. Where are the stories, poems, and songs?

    I propose using the knowledge of mysticism, given to us by the villagers who were camped across the river, to build a temple. Its construction will gather together our artisans who may then be motivated to enhance our culture and grow our influence in the surrounding lands.

    Hear, hear! I second the idea of a Temple. Rather see a Temple than a Granary.

    "Cyc wanted a Temple
    Nothin' to fancy or simple
    Said it's somthin' we lack
    Others wanted a Granary
    Cyc thought what a painery
    and continued to back DaveShack"

    With our palace in our capitol giving at least a little culture we may be better giving the first temple to one of our other cities who have nothing to keep the population amused.

    Yes, I was thinking that Moira might benefit from our first official cultural project.

    Yes, I'd rather see a Temple in Moira before a Granary is built there. ;)

    I'm not presently in favor of building one, nor have I ever said that Tara is ready for a Temple. I just said that I would rather see a Temple before a Granary. You know with our reproductive skills, we will outgrow our neighbors. Remember that we are playing on a Standard Map using Continents. If we were playing one of my games (Huge Pangaea), I could see it.

    Well, in a game play view we don't need temples for a long time, but early ones will make a 100K win a bit easier. :)

    In a roleplay view, I hope the domestic minister of the time will push libraries and cultural wonders just as hard. :D
