There is a story from a time now forgotten by most, when Egypt was just a fledgling community. A derelict ship, far larger than our simple ferries, became beached on Egypt's shores. Inside, the Pharaoh and his scientists found a great treasure; thousands of debens of a brilliant yet durable metal unknown to Egypt. The Priests declared the bounty a gift from the Gods, sent to help Egypt build a great society. Pharaoh asked the people to come up with uses for the metal, and when they had come to an agreement on which was the most beneficial, he would hand it over.
Egypt immediately broke into camps, squabbling over how the metal should be used. The Architects wanted to construct huge obelisks out of the material, believing they could use it to harness the power of lightning. The Politicians wanted to mint the metal into currency, arguing that a permanent and universal currency would usher in a new age of prosperity and trade. The Philosophers demanded the metal be turned over to them for research, so that they could better understand the lands across the waters. The Artists wanted the beautiful metal to mold and shape into great works of art, so that future generations would remember the Culture of the past.
The bickering went on for many months, during which alliances between the groups rose and fell, always shifting, although more often that not it was the Architects and Politicians united against the Philosophers and Artists. As for the common people of Egypt, they went about their lives unconcerned about this controversy. In fact, they made light of it, devising a game of cards which imitated the various groups all vying for the Pharaoh's attention, and the constantly-changing alliances. The game was named 'Yokir,' after the name of the beached ship.
What happened to the metal, we no longer know, other than that no group was able to lay claim to it. Some say the Stranger stole it during the uproar; others believe the Pharaoh became disgusted with the arguing and cast the ship back out to sea. However, the game played by the commoners remains today. Your challenge is to master this game, and get to know it well, so that the lessons of the past are not forgotten.
