Oh fearless Tomyris, queen of the confederate Massagetae tribes, protector of your homeland and people. The Massagetae are an ancient people, adept horse riders and gold workers said to inhabit the east of the Caspian Sea for thousand of years, until the time of the great migrations forced your people to find new home in distant lands.

Oh fair queen, with your battle worthiness proved in war against the Persians, your people look for you to once again guide and protect them. Will you answer their call? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?

Introduction: Be wary of your next moves, foreigner, for under my command lies dormant the wrath of the Massagetae and you are the one who chose to awake it.

Introduction: You could not have picked a worse time to stumble upon my lands. What brings you to these pastures?

Defeat: You are never defeated till you're dead. There's still one last charge for me.

Events and Decisions[]

Encase the Horses[]

Horses are part of the daily life of every Massagetae. It's from them that we get our drink, wage war and appease the gods, and although we bred them to be finest beasts, they still aren't safe in the heat of battle. By fully enclosing the horse with the most sturdier armor, we will not only protect their lives but also perform much better charges.

  • Player must be the Massagetae
  • May only be enacted from the beginning of the Classical Era
  • May only be enacted once per game
  • Must have researched Horseback Riding
