For my FR campaign, I wanted to incorporate a people resembling the historical Scythian horsemen people/nation (kinda Indo-European and proto-Slavic).

I do not want them to resemble the Tuigan peoples of the Hordelands (which are described more like Mongolian-Turkic cultures) because the Mongol-like Tuigans of the Hordelands are very clearly described and fleshed out.

So, where do I place the (above) Scythian-like raiders in (contemporary 5E) Faerun? Would they be the an offshoot of the Rashemen? Semphar? Maybe Raumviran?

Thanks for input.

I'd say the Nars would fit what you are looking for perhaps...but my choice would be the Barbarians of The Ride.

AD&D for me!

I was thinking the barbarians of The Ride as well.

Doggedly converting 3e back to what D&D should be...
Sigh... And now 4e as well.

The cover of the old grey box really could have been right out of "scythia" I feel.
