The Samauren Empire was a geo-political body that came into conflict with the Barbarian tribes.
The Empire launched an invasion of the Northern Steppes. It practiced forced labor of captive Barbarians. However, the tide turned against it. Loren, its panep, was slain, and his body looted by the Barbarian warrior Raekor. Raekor herself led the Oxen Tribe to victory over the empire as they sacked its capital.
- The Samauren Empire may be named in reference to Sumer, a region in southern Mesopotamia that has seen a number of empires rise and fall over the course of its history.
