“The barren and seemingly endless plains of the Windward Steppes were virtually uninhabited for many years, but that changed when a handful of adventurers carved trails through the imposing Baitan Mountains. This finally opened the rest the lands to the massive plateau of the Windward Steppes. Unlike Nordagh and Imperia, however, the Steppes never became densely populated; instead, its citizens live in traveling tented communities. Only adventure seekers and expertly trained gladiator schools spend their time wandering through these plains.” – League Training Manual, page 13

The Windward Steppes is one of the four regions in the world of Gladius and is the homeland of Eiji. It is wide open steppe country and known for its archers.
