Yotia suffered the brunt of Fallaji raiding parties even before the outbreak of the war. Yotia was a polytheistic country worshipping such gods like Bok, Mabok and Gaea. It was a monarchy, whose leader took the title of Warlord (or Warlady). It was the homeland of Tawnos, apprentice to Urza, and Kayla bin-Kroog, daughter of the Warlord and wife of Urza. After the death of the Warlord at Korlinda, Kayla became the Warlady, and witnessed the sack of Kroog, Yotia's capital, by Mishra's dragon engines. Yotia would remain under Fallaji occupation for ten years, before being liberated by Argive and Korlis. By this time, Yotia had been scarred almost beyond repair by the Fallaji plundering and Mishra's Scorched Earth policy. The Yotians would continue to fight on Urza's side until the end of the war. After the war it was absorbed into Argive, and eventually crumbled with the rest of the world.
The Sword Marches were a conquered territory in the west of Yotia. Originally called the Suwwardi Marches by the Fallaji nomads. The Yotian warlord and his forces traveled to Korlinda to meet the Fallaji qadir and his own armies to strike a peace agreement. This failed because both claimed the Sword Marches.
