{{startup|Chagatai|The {{flag|Mongol Empire}} of Genghis Khan is gone, its successor states reduced to infighting on the fringes of civilization. The once mighty {{flag|Yuan}} dynasty, the domain of Kublai Khan, has been entirely driven out of China and retreated back to the steppe in shame. Though {{flag|Mongolia}} still claims the Yuan Emperorship, the{{icon|mandate}}Mandate of Heaven has shifted to the {{flag|Ming}}, who seized power in the midst of a mass uprising against Mongol rule.
 +

Today the Mongol Khan cannot even claim to rule the steppe, or even to rule independently. Most of Mongolia has fallen under the sway of a new Mongol power: the {{flag|Oirat|0}}[[Oirat|Oirat Confederation]] led by Esen Taishi. Esen has great ambitions; refusing to pay tribute to the Ming, he is willing to fight their vast armies in a bid for dominance. If Esen were not such a brilliant military commander the Western Mongols would be unlikely to accept such brash posturing.

Khan Unebolad of the {{flag|Korchin|0}}[[Korchin|Korchin Mongols]] has carved out a respectable domain in Eastern Mongolia. He too has grand ambitions to reunite the Mongols, though his armies and abilities are more of a match for the divided Jurchens to the east than the consolidated forces of the Oirats.
 +
 +
The Chagatai Khanate is the most stable of the Mongol successor states, though this does not hold it to a high standard. The Chagatayids retain control over the land north of the Tian Shan mountains, as well as over the {{flag|Yarkand|0}}[[Yarkand|Yarkand Emirate]] of the Tarim Basin.
 +
 +
Many among the Mongols have adopted the {{icon|Vajrayana}} Vajrayana faith, the Tibetan sect of Buddhism. For the last several centuries this faith has coexisted peacefully with traditional Mongol belief in{{icon|Tengri}}Tengri, and the faith was even favored for a time under the Yuan. The Mongols must consider carefully their relations with {{flag|Tibet}} and decide on how to deal with the matter of religion.
 +
 +
Every Khan dreams of bringing unity to the Mongols and restoring Genghis Khan’s great Mongol Empire. Thus far all who have tried have had only short-lived success. But there is still time for a new Khan to rise to the challenge...?
