New pikes, siege weapons, and improved water wheels are beginning to be used in the Obsidian towers.

New research is beginning into:
Lifecrafter Armor - with the increase in lifecrafter activity on the battlefield and abroad, dangerous situations require better armor. Lifecrafter armor will be designed to be light, worn under their robes, and of high quality/expensive.

Improved Roads - improvements in our road building techniques, especially in hilly/mountainous terrain, are always useful.

Fortification Improvements - new research and design of city & fort/strongpoint defenses, spurred by the skirmishes to the east.
Mattopia of the Mattibean Union in CYOC. You should join ;)
