Other than getting the rod, the civic tutorials do nothing fo ryou other than teach you about civic diplomacy. You can find all the information online. At this point, you are looking for skill 50 NPCs. Depending on where your area is, this may or may not be easy to do. You may even have to venture out into other cities to find them. Maybe post your race so that people here can give you some idea of where to start.
Here is all of the info on civic for you.
