Sword, Axe, and Bow
They came raiding on horseback. Fierce warriors, both male and female, skilled with the sword, axe, and bow.
Their artisans were renowned for their ability to craft detailed tinkets of gold. Some say they inspire the legend of the Amazons. But they're more than fable. They were the Raiders of Scythia.
How to Play
Having a good Crew and enough Provisions are vital to successful raiding. So before making any raids, players will need to do some work to prepare their Crew and collect supplies. This is all done in the Scythia Village, at the top of the Main Board.
Once players have hired enough Crew and collected Provisions, they may choose to raid on their turn. To raid a Settlement, players need to meet three requirements: required worker type, large enough Crew, and enough Provisions.
End of the Game
The game end is triggered when there is either only 2 settlements left to raid, or 2 Quests left on the Main Board.
