Drowned River Clan
Once a pebble, now an avalanche, the Steppefolk of Drowned River are few, but include the heart of the Altan Ordu. Prominent members include Ma’Chek, Altan, Hulagu, Ganbaatar, Semek, and Semek’s Wife. They are canny ’beast traders—some would say cunning ’beast thieves. They have their own herds, but trade with the nomad herdsmen for ’beasts to sell at Tradestone to the caravans traveling the Great Trade Road. The Drowned River Trading Camp is a semi-permanent feature of the eastern Steppes, because it is one of the few places where the Drowned River comes close enough to the surface for large wells to be dug.
