Hellfrost: Land of Fire!
The Bedu (plural and singular are the same) are
the least numerous of the human cultures and live a
predominantly nomadic existence. They are a clannish
people with strong ties of blood. Families are grouped
into clans, which in turn belong to a tribe. Clans within
a tribe often share a common ancestor, though purely
political alliances are not uncommon.
Many Bedu are traders, and their camel trains, which
can stretch to over half a mile in length, are frequent
sights in the great deserts. They produce little of their
own, and serve as middle men between the disparate cities
and cultures. A few, however, make a living as slavers,
raiding small villagers or attacking caravans, then selling
captives in the Caliphate, Sultanate, or the Kingdoms of
the Sphinxes. A few of the darker Bedu tribes sell captives
to the fell rulers of Hekata, the scorpionmen, orcs,
and other evil races.
