Steppe Tribes’ origins predate The Fall, originally formed by loose collections of various disaffected Regional American Territory citizen groups. Several Tribes are nomadic and developed an intimate knowledge and familiarity with the overgrowth, making them exceptionally qualified guides for traders and explorers wishing to use unconventional paths.
They understand that evolution is necessary to survive environmentally and technologically but are cautious when dealing with nature outsiders.
Steppe Tribes’ deep engagement with The Fall environment resulted in creating unparalleled experts on xenobiology and xenobotany—chemists and medicine men who perform medicinal and [REDACTED] wonders with the compounds and [REDACTED] materials crafted from exotic elements.
Steppe Tribes strive to understand and use The Fall environment while remaining respectful to life’s natural order. They acquire tips and tools through observational exploration—to survive and be positive participants in the circle of life.

Chieftains: Jobi, Kattak, Nassay
Elders: Altsoba, Kachina, Onida, Lansa
Desert Rats- Their equal interest in exploration and adaptation to The Fall environment coupled with a trade partnership unites them.
Patriots - An alliance built on presenting a united front against the Texas Star and Free Land Confederation forces.
Texas Star – A mutual Pre-Fall antagonism continues to the present.
Freedom Fighters - The Steppe Tribes’ trade with Desert Rats and the Freedom Fighters’ collaboration with Texas Star leads to ongoing opposition.
Free Land Confederation - The Confed way of life and belief system is the antithesis of how Steppe Tribes operate. Their cooperation and trade deals with Texas Star acts as a further flashpoint.
