Horde-Like Cultures in other settings

Post by Havard » Sat Oct 29, 2011 11:20 am

I thought it might be a good idea to compile a list of similar cultures in other D&D settings, in order to track down books to borrow ideas from.

The ones I can think of off-hand are the following:

MYSTARA
Ethengar
Jennites

BLACKMOOR
Peshwa (More Scythians than mongols perhaps)

SOVEREIGN STONE
Dwarves



What else?

Also the Wolf and Tiger Nomads (who are descended from the Relentless Horde), to some extent.

More literally, the people of Northern Hosk in Taladas. Northern Hosk is a vast steppe filled with nomadic tribes. The various human tribes, especially the Uigan and Kazar, are Mongol-like steppe nomads, while the Elf Clans (the hosk'i imou merkitsa) are more or less Mongols as well. The local goblins, on the other hand, are a settled people.

GHOSTWALK:
Thurkasia (horse nomads that are becoming more civilised). They might be a good model for some of the cities on the outskirts of The Hordelands.

EDIT: How about Jakandor?

Do the dinosaur riding halflings from Eberron count? I don't know too much about their culture so it may be very different.

I need to re-read my Eberron Campaign Setting, to find out more about those guys.

The barbarians of The Ride/Tortured Lands and Narfell are fairly Horde-like.

Havard didn't specify D&D, so I'd think he wants any setting. :?

Are they covered equally well in both the old and new RPG?

Sure. :)
One of the reasons why I asked is that people can find similar products from other lines to borrow ideas/material from.

Keep em coming! :)
