Hyunpe are the desert people, known as “those who live in cloth”. Dark skinned, cover themselves with cloth, with woven stories across them. They have piercing yellow-green eyes visible between the folds of cloth.


Hyunpe and their livestock herds live in the vast deserts where they know how to survive but outsiders don't. Very insular, but willing to trade, they don't tend to mix with others until they have proven themselves honest. They make yearly summer pilgrimages to the rivers at the edge of the deserts to gather vast quantities of reeds and grass for their crafts. The Hyunpe are story-writers, and are obsessed with writing down their tales. These woven storycloths are greatly desired across the world, as are those who can read them.
