The Empire of the Syharhalna is a culture founded on the mastery of life and bent towards world conquest. Its scientists and leaders are impressed neither by the laws of nature, nor by the power of other nations. Their clones and their creatures attack the continent with a genetically engineered frenzy. Each battle is a new scientific test and a new opportunity to demonstrate the all mightiness of Arh-Tolth, the god of the Syhar. To guide them in combat, the Syhar have chosen a creature so perfect it thrives in the desert, an emblem worthy of their perfection: the Scorpion.
