The Brazen Horde was a nation of nomads originally from beyond the nation of Mur in the Baklunish Basin, in the southern part of the land of Komal.

History

Long at odds with the Komali, the Brazen Horde was incited by the Sultanate of Zeif to migrate south of their territory in order to challenge and contain the warlike Paynims. The Brazen Horde proved to be even more able and more warlike than the Paynims were, and soon had conquered the southern Baklunish lands (with support from Zeif), driving the Wolf and Tiger Nomads northward as the so-called Relentless Horde. This task complete, the Brazen Horde began attacking Ull, Tusmit and Ket. The Tusmites, with Ekbir's aid, repelled the nomads, and Ull managed to hold on to its territory, but Ket was conquered and remained under the control of the Brazen Horde for several decades, raiding Veluna from time to time until they were driven out by forces dispatched from Keoland, including the newly-formed Knights of the Watch. The leadership of the Brazen Horde fragmented at that point and they continued to war with the Paynims for the next 200 years, until the Mahdi of the Steppes began his attempt to unite the quarrelsome nomads and dervishes.
