We’re back in ancient China, peeps for another episode of Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom’s tutorial missions. This time we’re going to learn about how to farm for sustainability in a mission we’ll call “Seeds of Civilization.” Enjoy!

Welcome back to the village of Banpo!

Several generations have passed and the village that your people founded along the banks of the Wei River has prospered. There is a renewed sense of excitement in the town today. Word has just arrived of a nutritious new food source — millet. As a highly respected village elder, you are needed to plan the establishment of farms where millet can be grown to supplement the diet. Hemp farms can also be built. The fibres from the hemp plant have many uses, not the least of which is for durable garments.
