@enkiv2 @Riley that makes sense. my thought was that sometimes the various empires were large and might have included cities that weren't close enough to riverbeds and marshes for tablets to be easily created on-the-fly? (but really I'm just trying to figure out what would have been the first writing that referred to its own medium and this seemed like a plausible scenario)
