I'n not too concerned about species that would be found on mainland western Lythia. The land bridge between Harn and Lythia seems to have existed much more recently than Britain's land bridge to Europe. Mink on Harn should be fine.Kara wrote: ↑Fri Oct 13, 2017 3:29 pmIn that list, mink, turtle and salamander also made me twich as none of those have ever lived in Britain except as recent escapees (and only mink have successfully established themselves). The British Isles have a very poor diversity of fauna compared with the rest of Eurasia and Harn lies far further away from Lythia.
This is where you can talk about HârnWorld places, people, religion, magic, society and cultures, etc. Ask questions about published towns and cities, ruins, mines, and gargun nests, mysterious map references, and battle sites.

That, of course, totally makes sense as part of the secret war long term that the Yêrazh waged against their former subjects, the Hârazai. Over a millenium the Hârazai expanded their influence and prospered, coming ever closer to the critical point when they would be able to challenge their rightfull (though former) masters. To put an end to this, the Yêrazh, the descendants of the "Golden People", saw to the import of horses (secretly from Yelastrys, Harbaal) to the Neránadh - a barbarian people that could unite and then use their newfound strength only in one direction. A massive intervention of an interested party from Melderyn and Emelrene prevented additional contact, though Yelastrys was destroyed by the "Black Wind" in the process. Alas for the Hârazai, there already were sufficient horses for the plan to work.
BTW: None of this is canon. It just fits pretty good into the given data from the "Kethira" article.
