The Barren Court

The Barren Court is a band of nomadic warriors who roam The Sand, protecting the weak and enforcing the law of the desert. Legends tell that long ago, when small strips of the region were considered amongst some of the most arable lands known to the continent, the group numbered in the hundreds, and existed as several allied clans who travelled separately for much of the year, but gathered in the heart of the desert at the height of summer to hold court and debate matters of consequence. Today however, the dunes have enveloped the vast majority of their once fertile homeland, swallowing every hint of lush greenery but for the hardy baobab trees endemic to the borderland between The Sand and the savannah to its south. As a consequence, the Court’s numbers have declined rapidly, and recent reports suggest there may be less than fifty of them remaining, operating largely as a distributed network of spies and enforcers who travel primarily individually or in groups small enough to roam the wastelands undetected.

Central among the tenets of The Barren Court is a profound respect for the land, having seen first-hand the perilous toll its degradation has exacted upon the people, animals and plants that inhabit the desert.
