Vine-Regent of Dorwinion

I love what you did, it is awesome, but I thought you might like to know, the Saka are Scythians. So that would mean that, rather than making the Hephthalite Empire, you actually remade, and expanded on, the much cooler Indo-Scythian kingdom.They said the White Huns were gone.
After the collapse of the great Hephthalite Empire, which stretched from the rivers of Mesopotamia to the Rajputs of India, it was thought that the Hunas would never rise again. The Pratihara ruled the expanse of northern India, and all that was left of the Hephthalite legacy was an irrelevant county north of Gujarat (Mohadavasaka), who paid homage to their Rajput overlords.
Fortunately for the descendants of the Masters of the Steppe, this wasn't meant to be.
Through diplomatic maneuvering (and some collaboration with the Hashashin), the Hunas of India took out each of their rivals one by one. Eventually, following the defeat of the Tibetan Empire and the Great Dragon of the East, the Hephthalite Empire took its rightful place on the world stage.
Currently, the servants of the Shahanshah are finishing off the last of Tibetan resistance in India, whilst also steamrolling through the Muslim world.
It's worth mentioning that two merchant republics, Sindh and Oman, provided a lot of the fuel for me to fund this whole thing. I've also adopted Imperial Administration, given women full status, and maintained primogeniture succession. I'm proud to have done this without changing my culture for the subjugation CB.
(Also, yes, I did modify the coat of arms for my dynasty).
