The Horde: Barbarian Campaign Setting [BOX SET]
"Between East and West, between Earth and Sky, lies the Endless Waste. Barren and desolate, this windswept land forms the barrier between the feuding kingdoms of Faerun and the ancient empires of Kara-Tur. The eternal steppe is home only to the hardy, nomadic horsemen who travel its secret paths.
This region, long ignored by its neighbors, is about to erupt in the bloodiest conflict ever to sweep across the Forgotten Realms. Yamun Khahan, Emperor of the Tuigan, has united the barbarian tribes into an unstoppable horde. Already he rules the steppes, from the Cave of a Thousand Gods to the Valley of the Dog-Men. Driven to conquer, Yamun Khahan looks both east and west, and sees a world ripe for the harvest.
THE HORDE Campaign Set includes:
• Two 64-page encylopedias describing the Endless Wastes and the barbarians who live there;
• Four full-color maps, showing the Endless Waste from Rashemen and Thay in the west to Shou Lung in the east, plus the Caliphate of Semphar and many other locales;
• Eight pages of monster descriptions ready to be added to your Mostrous Compendium;
• Twenty-four individual hand-outs with adventure information, background on the region, and illustrations of the nomadic barbarians;
• A clear plastic measuring overlay."

Storm Riders (FRA1)
"The Horde is riding!
The mountains rumble under the thundering hoofbeats of 40,000 barbaric horsemen. When the player characters find themselves in their path they have no choice except to flee.
Their journey takes them into the forbidden kingdom of Ra-Khati, a land of ancient mysteries and untold wealth nestled deep within the Katakoro Mountains. As honored guests they are invited to partake of its extravagance. Wealth, power, romance - anything can be theirs for the asking. That is, anything short of their freedom!
But when invaders threaten the Hidden Kingdom, the player characters are given a chance to earn their liberty. They are charged with escorting a spoiled princess and her dowry, a ferocious black stallion, to a nearby kingdom as a bribe to stop a war. Nothing stand in their way except 40,000 bloodthirsty riders and a vengeful purple dragon.
Storm Riders is the first adventure in the Empires Adventures Trilogy, and the first adventure taking place in the new FORGOTTEN REALMS campaign world territories described in The Horde campaign set. The Empires Adventures Trilogy is also set amidst the turbulent events portrayed in the Empires Novel Trilogy. This adventure is designed for four to eight player characters of levels 5-7."
"Terror stalks the Realms! In a world where the unexpected is the only predictable thing, no one could have foreseen The Horde... from the utter east, an unstoppable legion of dark riders thunders from the lost horizon, and bitter enemies must band together in a desperate struggle for survival. A few, scattered heroes dare to delve into the east, seeking a way to stop the invasion at its source. Your PCs will adventure across unknown wilds, into a mystic kingdom that lies far beyond the impassable Katakoro Mountains. Winter trolls, wu jen, nagas, vampires, and worse await them. Will they survive? Only if the act in perfect unison, and use their cunning and teamwork to avoid bringing disaster down upon themselves from every direction! A great adventure." ...from Amazon reviewer "darkseraphim"

"The Purple Dragon is caged!

Horselords (Forgotten Realms: The Empires Trilogy, Book 1)
The streets of Manass remained empty as the priest and his barbarian bodyguards marched through the town. The procession saw few men until it rounded a corner and entered a large plaza. There, armored soldiers carrying wicked-looking swords formed a wall.
The priest bowed to the governor, who stood foremost in the ranks. "I am Koja of Khazari," he began, a little nervous. "I bear you greetings from Hoekun Yamun, khahan of the Tuigan, who styles himself Illustrious Emperor of All Peoples. He has sent me to deliver a message. The words of the khahan are these: 'Submit to me and recognize my authority over your people or I shall raze your city and destroy all those who refuse me.'"
As Koja finished the demands, there was a murmur of shock and surprise from the soldiers in the plaza. Many eyes turned to the governor, whose face was purple with rage. "Is that all your barbarian friend has to say?" he shouted.
The priest wiped his sweaty palms on his robe. "No, Lord Commander. He also bids you to look over your walls from your highest tower."
"I've seen the reports from the sentries. Your khahan has gathered himself a sizable force of bandits. And now he wants to style himself 'Illustrious Emperor of All Peoples?' He's got a lot to do before he can claim that title," the governor said with a sneer. "Does he really think he can capture Manass with that puny force?"
Koja smiled slightly. "Yes, Lord Commander, he does."
