Overview Edit

Sauromatia is a tribal nation ruled by women. Swift raiders and lancers form the backbone of the armies. Amazon warriors and Androphags are the sacred elites of the Sauromatians. Witch Kings, masters of dark sorcery, rule the Androphag tribe. Hydras from the Pythian Marsh are tamed and used in warfare. Sauromatia is eventually conquered by Ermor, and turns into MA Pythium after the Cataclysm.

Background Edit

Sauromatia is a nation of nomadic warrior tribes ruled by women. Men and women fight side by side and all prominent tribes are ruled by warrior queens. This is a legacy of the Sauromatians merging with the Amazon tribes in times past. The Amazons leaders were not accepted, because they were not warriors, but they influenced the Sauromatians and women warriors gained power and prestige. Only the tribe of the Androphags has totally rejected the notion of female leadership. The Androphags are ruled by ancient Witch Kings who introduced cannibalism and man-flaying to the Sauromatians. The Androphags also use hydras from the Marshes of Pythia in warfare.
