Tools, tables and resources for running adventures in grasslands and similar terrain

Grasslands adventures can cover plains full of sprawling farmlands, steppes of horse nomads, grasslands of vast herds and endless savannah.
Some themes I'd associate with plains and grasslands would be mounts & riders, herding, winds, flyers and elemental air. Any generator suggestions for these are welcome!
