Public opinion on desert riders varied depending on who was asked. The nomads, or Al-Badia, revered the desert riders as true heroes who represented the traditional qualities of desert folk: bravery, honor, and freedom. Villagers of small towns often thought they were little better than wandering thieves. Realistically, both are right. Men and women of good and evil backgrounds became desert riders.
Special Benefits Edit
Desert riders possessed an uncanny ability to judge horse physiques, resulting in them owning the finest mounts available. Mounts under a desert riders care performed in a superior manner to when they were handled by ordinary folk.
Special Hindrances Edit
Attuned to the ways of the desert and little else, these warriors were awkward in any setting where they were removed from their beloved habitat.
