For those of an adventerous and rebellious spirit desirous of adventure and somewhat lunatic disposition, Siberia comes to the mind. For almost fifty years since the collapse of Russian rule in Siberia, it has become the haunt of many an outcast or soul weary of the grinding oppression of civilised life: drug smugglers, gun runners, mercenaries, runaways, deserters, fugitive serial killers, disgraced criminal gangs, schemers and pioneers all who left behind the trappings of civilisation, some out of choice, and others out of necessity.

For this is the land of Shinte Altan Ordu — the New Golden Horde. A place where only the toughest and the most warlike survive. A horde of ruthless, depraved, cruel and barbarous semi-nomadic pillagers, where all men are expected to be itinerant warriors and forbidden from engaging in the usual commerce or trade any other culture usually expects of its men. From the Urals all the way to the shores of California, the name "New Golden Horde" is enough to strike fear even in the blackest and stoutest of red-blooded hearts. Whispers abound throughout the capitals of the civilised world that of every ten men who enter this beautiful but hostile land, it is said eight of them will die, the ninth will remain there for life, and the last one wil go mad with bloodlust, only to return as a raider to wreak havoc against his former friends.

Early history: the Crucible of EmpiresEdit

For centuries, the land called Siberia was once home to a wild variety of peoples — forest-dwelling Chukchi, and wild Turkic horsemen, some of which became the scourge of empires. One such Turkic conqueror was Temujin, who then adopted the name Genghis Khan. He created a new nation of horse-riding nomads — the Mongols, and created an empire which stretched over half of present-day Eurasia and northern Eastasia, as late as 1300 CE

When Genghis Khan's empire fell to pieces, one of the first peoples to benefit it was the Russians. Bit by bit, they slowly inched up their way through the treacherous mountain slopes and snows of Siberia, and eventually founded a nation that rivalled the Mongol Empire in size.

The Birth of the New Golden HordeEdit

The Russian Empire was not fated to last. By the 19th century, grinding poverty, rampant corruption and dissensions created massive social tensions of tectonic magnitude which no amount of legislation could simply avert. The disaster came in 1914 when the Russians entered a war with the former Austro-Hungarian empire in central Eurasia, which then escalated into a conflict with the Ottoman Empire and Germany. Calamity was swift and relentless: men died, families were shattered, the costs of war plunged banks into debt and an all-out military coup against the imperial household, which then resulted in a massive five-year long bloodletting which swept through all of Western Russia (now present-day Vidalia) like a plague.
