Wind on the Steppes is a supplement for Basic Roleplaying describing the features common to all nomad tribes and the peculiarities of each nomad ethnicity or empire. Within it you will find inspiration for fleshing out powerful enemies for your fantasy or historical campaigns based on other Alephtar Games supplements. But its use is not limited to providing you with more detailed “bad guys”: Nomads can be fascinating player characters, too. The harsh life of the steppe and the unique flavour of their shamanistic approach to the supernatural world will give you plenty of great roleplaying opportunities.
Be they Huns led by Attila, Turks, Kipchaks or
the most feared of all – Genghis Khan’s Mongols, the nomads are surging
from the depths of Central Asia! And they have just one goal in mind:
raiding and pillaging everything in your
campaign. So have your player characters get ready to face the fight of
their life, for there is no escape route… unless they belong themselves
to the horde.
