hey, there! i'm enjoying the layout of your world map, although i don't see anything below the "second cataract" line a bit confused on the goals for the mastabas - is it that i need 5 mastabas with nobles in them and 5 with pharaoh in them? (which means i need to wait for my pharaoh to die 5 times?)
