The War of the Steppes refers to a series of battles fought between the Eastern Union and Golden Horde around December, 2006. It was an outgrowth of the Third Flame War after Genghis Khan de-possessed Taillesskangaru, who escaped the gulag to seek refuge in Union-held Russia.
Thorvald of Lym initially resisted Temujin's demand for tribute and Tailless' extradition as the Union army retaliated in force; but when the Horde rallied stronger, Thorvald folded, eventually reaching a compromise agreement. In exchange for 2000 longboats-full of gold and military right of passage, the Mongols called off their hunt for Tailless. In addition, Thorvald and Temujin agreed to buy each other a Christmas present.
