From the back of the book:
"From the fury of the Tatars, oh lord, deliver us..." The steppe nomads of the Golden Horde under their Mongol overlords have built a mighty empire, stretching across Asia and into the lands of the Rus'. This companion to the MYTHIC RUSSIA roleplaying game reveals more about the past conquests of the Golden Horde, its present peoples (including a full guide to the Bashkorts, one of the constituent peoples of the Horde) and its future troubles. Also includes maps, story seeds and a scenario. This is the full-colour, perfect-bound version. A cheaper, saddle-stitched version with black & white interior pages is also available.
