Strategic resources (and where to find them)[edit]

Citrus

Agrumia.jpg

Occurs in:

Citrus fruits can be traced back to Asia, where they were first cultivated. Oranges and lemons first made their appearance in Mediaeval Europe, following the arrival of Islam which discovered that it was expedient to grow citrus trees in the Mediterranean. Much later, Europeans discovered that citrus could prevent scurvy, and so fleets who could afford it issued citrus to their sailors. For this reason, the British — a major maritime power — were sometimes called "Limeys".

Wool


Lania.jpg

Occurs in:

Aside from producing food if slaughtered, sheep also provide valuable milk and wool which is easier to weave than tree bark fibre. Sheep are also of great ritual significance: Etruscan priests were said to have practised hepatomancy — a form of divination where sheep livers were used to predict the future.

Slave Emporion

Occurs in:

The best way to dispose of your foes and other undesirables is to sell them off to others willing to endure them. At the drop of a coin — or a few more — troublemakers become the prestige and profit of others, wherever slavers congregate with their grisly traffic in human flesh and misery.

Salmon
Salmonae.jpg

Occurs in:

A voracious predator which lives mostly in the more frigid waters of the world, salmon was considered a delicacy by the Celts of Gaul and Britain.

Occurs in:

Fish and seafood formed a vital component in the diet of beach-dwellers, but not everyone would be content with bland fish meat.

So prized and so difficult was it to extract murex dye that only the extremely rich could afford fully purple fabrics. Roman emperors had the benefit of full purple vestments — senators had to make do with purple coloured trim in their clothing to denote their status, and commoners none at all.
