Wind From the East is a supplement for Vampire: The Dark Ages and Kindred of the East covering Asia in the Dark Medieval period, particularly the conflicts between the Mongols and the West.


From the White Wolf catalog:

The Great Khan Calls...
From the depths of Asia comes the greatest of all empires, the Mongols of Genghis Khan! They are an unstoppable force; China, India, the Islamic lands and Christian Europe are all threatened. With them come monsters of the night, both distant cousins of the European Cainites and the dreaded Wan Kuei of the Middle Kingdom. Vampires call for blood and the world trembles.
...And the Golden Horde Rides
Wind From the East provides complete information on the Mongol invasions and the diverse vampires who move among the Great Khan's horde. It covers the entire period of Mongol expansion into the West and reveals the rich culture that puts the lie to the image of "heathen invaders".
