Culture and Locations
Maugnun is a kingdom in southeast Remdor. Its main religion is the Remdorian Sect, which teaches people to make sacrifices to avoid suffering and bless others to goodness prosperity. It is a non-theistic religion and tends to allow other religions to coexist with it, provided the values are compatible. Maugnun also has a significant presence of followers of the Red Temple (Abadorian Creed), which believes in a dichotomy of powers -- of good versus evil forces -- and this belief mostly originates from the fact that Red Temple was the heart of early Vastion culture after the Darkness. Maugnians are seen as highly devout people, who follow this unusual blend of Sect and Red Temple beliefs stolidly. Their capital is Mourvan.
Maugnun is mostly temperate forest with subtropical rainforest along its coasts, temperate grassland further inland called the Fansaung Plain, and montane forest on the Coral Mountains. Its shores meet the Ambelia Ocean and it owns the eastern Amethyst Twin island. The Agnir River flows through Mourvan, and the Inrig flows through Thalrest.

History and Relations
From about 500AL, most of Remdor was occupied by the Urkadian Tlarate, an unusual time when tlars ruled over Benevans, mystics, and local peoples. When colonists from the Vastin Kingdom arrived and saw the state of Remdor, they began to drive the tlarate away, expanding Benevan culture across most of Remdor. But due to the wide variety of peoples already spread across the land, the colonies soon broke apart into a variety of different kingdoms with different origins. Maugnun people are mostly from the Into ethnic group. They are allied with Satium, and neutral with Sesar.
Military and Art
Maugnun's most distinct soldier is the crusader, a heavily-armoured knight who fights in the holy wars against the tlarates from the southwest. Common architectural features include colonnades, crowned domes, and tiered fortresses, and common artforms include ritualistic singing, whitesmithing, and painting.
