Scott has stated before that the Scylendi are based off of the Scythians/Sarmatians more so that the Mongols.[/quote:3fkiqwzi]

No doubt, Scott based Scylvendi folkways on the Scythians, but as an all-conquering people of war who were only defeated in battle once or twice, the Scylvendi clearly mirror the Mongols - a people of war with an advanced military machine whose campaigns had devastating effects on Christian kingdoms and Islamic sultanates at the time of the Crusades. view post
