Season 2 Backstory
A realm of infinite opportunity draws aspiring conquerors from afar, but there are those who have always been here, and always will be… Through the piercing bite of winter, drought, famine, and unspeakably blood-soaked chapters in their war-torn history, the nomadic tribes endure.
The Sons of the Steppes are warriors who hail from the great rolling steppes of the north. They live off the land while enduring the harshest environments, yet their combat skills have decided the fates of empires in the past. Knowledge is power, and their survival skills and history within this land makes many warlords eager to draw swords with them.
