The book introduces a new character class, the Nomad, an outback drifter that has given up, or chosen not to engage in the life of the big city, but rather to live a simpler, tribal-like life.
Neo Tribes goes into detail the history of the nomads, their cultures and backgrounds as well as a section on the seven largest nomad nations. There are 3 chapters dedicated to creating and running a nomad in custom campaigns as well as their life path, equipment and how they fit into a traditional game.
The final section of the book is a mini-adventure specifically for the Nomad character and it set around the Chicago Reconstruction Project.
