The Riders of Blood were renegades from the House of Hanif who operated along Dihl al-Taif in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]

Base of OperationsEdit

Located somewhere within the Haunted Lands, the Riders of Blood struck with the speed and savage efficiency of a sandstorm.[1]


Because of their dislike of the subjugation of their tribe to the Grand Caliph in Huzuz, the Riders of Blood frequently targeted trade caravans traveling between Huzuz and Halwa.[1]

All potential caravan targets were carefully scouted before any attack was made. A favored tactic was to have several wind mages batter the caravans with wind and sand for a few days before striking with lancers and bowmen.[2]


The Riders of Blood fielded 250 skilled fighting men and women and several wizards. Fasim Kaldur was their leader.[1]

Many of the Riders favored the jambiya since it was a symbol of freedom throughout the Land of Fate.[1]


Though most of its members were humans, elves and half-elves were welcomed so long as they proved their loyalty to the Riders.[2]
