A Citadel is a more powerful version of the Fort, and is in effect a separate building. Unlike Forts, Citadels however are highly defensive and must be built in the vicinity of large cities. Only one Citadel may be built per settlement in this way.

Scythian mercenaries include:

  • Scythian Bowmen
  • Scythian Warriors (armed with axes)
