Hi everybody,
just a quick question for the knowing: In what books are references to Scytha? I searched through my books (almost all the 90s stuff plus the 4th edition) but couldn't find a lot... Or has someone too much spare time and can sum up for me what is known about Scytha?
Many thanks in advance.

- Ancient dwarf kingdom located in the Scytha Mountains, now abandoned.
- Predates the founding of Throal ‘by many years’, ‘having been in existence long before the banishment of Elianar Messias’.
- In constant conflict with the nearby dwarf city-states of Killea and K’rzon. Even tried (unsuccessfully) to conquer Throal once.
- Had to swear fealty to the Theran soon after the Orichalcum War.
- Around 100 TH, the first Horrors (the Invaes) infested Scytha and, in time drove the dwarfs from their home, many migrating to Throal.

Data was found in the old 1st edition Barsaive Boxed-set and the Throal book. There is not much data indeed.

The Dragons book, in the sections about Asante and Vasdenjas, there is a little bit more detail about Scytha.
