The Steppe by CrazyAsian1 The Steppe by CrazyAsian1
Mongolia 2156

The bitter cold stung her face as she reached the peak. The repeated gusts of wind from the drone landing behind her didn't help. Once the great Eagle situated itself the pair looked over the steppe with sharp eyes. The various herds of goats, sheep, horses, camels, and yaks from the nomads looked like ants against the great snow covered peaks on the other end of the valley. Nothing out of the ordinary to report.

Temulin and her Eagle drone had the responsibility of watching over the Nomads and protecting the herds from bandits. With international relations crumbling in Central Asia the Border Defense Force played a pivotal role in maintaining the integrity of the Mongolian nation. A local to this part of the steppe, Temulin felt at home up the mountains. Settling in for the days watch the two of them continued their vigil, ever at the ready to protect the Mongol way of life.

What an awesome story about the 13 yr old girl and her eagle. I can see how you would be motivated to come up with your piece, Robert. :)

When I saw the thumbnail in my 'watched' update I was like "Oh man is that a robot-and-user based on Ashol-Pan?" I was pretty happy when it turned out to be just that. I really like the theme in your work of these sort of lone wardens and their animal-robot companions. Very evocative.
