The Kurlaks are all that remain of the once proud Thonteg Empire, though they remember it not.

Kurlak warriors wear short sleeve chain mail hauberks or iron or leather lamellar armor. Their iron helms are conical, with camails suspended from them. They carry round wooden shields, and fight with composite bows (which they are adept at using from the back of their mounts), lances, javelins, spears, maces and swords.

Kurlak culture is animistic, paying homage to the many spirits which inhabit nature. While their shamans, called kami, have no direct political role, their opinions are held in high regard, and valued as wise counsel. Kurlaks pay their respects to the first animal they encounter each day, believed to be a form of their progenitor Gergeraba, who learned to assume the shape of any animal so that he might best avoid his enemies.

Tribes are presided over by a woman, called a bek, and her retinue of advisors.  Men typically wear sheepskin vests, short tabards and breeches, and sport long hair and long mustaches. Garb for women is similar, but tabards are shorter, and wimples generally worn to cover the head when outdoors. Both sexes wear boots and are expert riders. Women fight alongside the men, who treat the women with great respect. Crimes are dealt with harshly after deliberation by the bek and her inner circle.
