Throughout history there have been few armies that can truly say they have conquered. Most nations embark on petty squabbling with neighbors, attempting to expand and consolidate their lands in tiny morsels. Only a few Empires, the great nations of history, the Roman Empire, the British Empire, the Russian Empire, expanded in great swaths. All of them however, pale at the size, speed, and utter brutality in which the Mongol Empire came to fame. From a weak group of warring clans in the Mongolian steppe, Genghis Khan forged the largest land empire the world had ever seen. Reaching from the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea, encompassing nearly all of Eurasia, the Mongols burnt, massacred, and conquered their way into history. So entrenched was the Mongol Empire that its successor states would last into the 20th century.

Ultimate Mongol Empire Guide is a detailed look at the might of the Mongol Empire during the Middle Ages and the Khans they rallied behind. Throughout the Asian steppes and to areas well beyond their borders, the Mongols’ effecient and effective war tactics allowed the Empire to grow rapidly, consuming everyone around. However, those who submitted to the Empire found a vast merchant network connecting Eurasia, religious freedom, and laws the reflect those still in use today.

Ultimate Mongol Empire Guide includes:

Historical equipment utilized by the Mongol Empire
A look at Mongol’s military tactics and formations
A listing of the Mongol Khans
A timeline of major battles and events
New Character Options for making Mongol warriors
Two Legendary Tales
… and more!

Ultimate Mongol Empire Guide is your source for building warriors like those of history, or building the foundations of a historical or alternate history game set in the Mongol Empire.

This looks very good.

It has enough background to be interesting, tactics, character generation, equipment and a short description of the culture. The scenarios look good from a very quick glance.

I'd have liked to see more coverage of Tengrism, with either the main deities covered or how Tengrist shamans work. I'd also have liked it to include other steppe peoples, but I always like a lot more than I am given.

All in all, a good, solid supplement. If only it had been 200 pages :)

LOL

The Ultimate Guides sourcebooks are meant to be limited in scope. That way they're a low cost addition to your games. This particular freelancer is a military historian, so religious history isn't a part of the sourcebooks. This one, along with the Roman Legions and Three Kingdoms guides, are a look at these empires from a military and societal point of view.

Thanks for the feedback!
