Hetepsenusret: Senusret is Satisfied (Modern name: El-Lahun)

Faiyum... Long have Pharaohs noted the potential of this land. Fed by waters from the Nile, the region surrounding the lake in this region offered opportunities for agricultural production. Indeed, it is known that our great ancestors harvested some of their first crops here. However, as these marshy lands were regularly flooded, development on this region remained limited.

As ordained by the gods, blessed by Horus, Pharaoh Senusret II has ascended the throne of the kingdom. By his decree, the peace and prosperity of our land is continue as it did in his father's reign. And so instead of troubling himself with the petty matters of conflict, Pharaoh Senusret II has turned his attention towards the region of the Faiyum. In order to go about on his grand project, he has ordered the royal capital and the court moved to the city of Itjtawy, which is conveniently located near the Faiyum region. With his great wisdom, Pharaoh himself shall oversee the fruition of his designs.

You have been chosen personally by Pharaoh himself to set about performing one of the most important tasks - the construction of not only an entirely new town but also the construction of Pharaoh's own tomb. This town, which shall be known as "Hetepsenusret, Senusret is satisfied," will be a major workmen's town that will house the builders of Pharaoh's great construction projects for years to come. As you are rewarded with the great duty of ensuring Pharaoh's greatness in this life and the next, you must not tarry. Go now and make Pharaoh satisfied!
