Very little is known of Kytan. Their swords are sharp and among the finest in the world. Their pottery is beautiful and also among the finest in the world. Their armor is terrible and their poetry inscrutable to Westerners. The saying “He who strikes first, strikes last” is probably Kytan in origin. They are a proud race, disdainful and contemptuous of all that is not Kytan. And they have been at war with the Anzani for years or decades or centuries… a long time certainly.
That is the extent of what is known about Kytan west of the Urgol Desert.
One other item is worth mentioning, although it is rumor only: Three War Golems, an astonishing force, left Kolos Jamorda traveling south with their handlers early last year (this is fact). No one knows exactly who purchased them but they have not turned up at any of the kingdoms around the Central Sea. The most common theory is that they now fight for the Kytan. Some would have thought the Kytan too proud to purchase help from outsiders but those paying closer attention believe the Kytan may be too desperate not to.
