The nomads of Atelia have a long tradition of mounted combat. Nomad Riders used to be a common sight in the wilds of east Kathos, before the mining companies came. They used to fight with spears, javelins, and sometimes lances. While deadly against infantry, the armored cars and tanks of the mining company guards were impervious to this kind of attack.

After several bloody defeats, some of the more innovative nomad tribes decided to try and use the tools of the mining companies against them. Groups of Nomad Riders took bundles of explosives (stolen from supply trucks or storage sheds) for use in battle. As with the Mounted Bombers in Kathos, they were devastatingly effective against the unprepared guards. On top of this, the Nomad Rider mounts are much tougher than horses. Though they donít quite move as fast, but their thick hides make them far more survivable, giving the riders plenty of time to blow apart nearby foes.
