Montusi

The Montusi, like the Tunisi, are a people of empire. Their own empire occupies huge tracts of desert, mountain, jungle, and fertile valleys in the southeastern part of Lagar. The Montusi empire is thousands of years old, steeped in rich learning and culture and home to some of the most powerful mages in the world. They are a magocentric culture ruled by hand-picked witches who are trained from birth by a tightly closed and highly secretive society of mages. The Montusi pride themselves on their learning, philosophy, science, and occult mastery. The pursuit of personal excellence is one of their highest cultural values; the pursuit of wealth and worldly power is considered base and unworthy. Many Montusi live in hermitages scattered through the deserts and mountains, meditating and unraveling the mysteries of the universe.

The Montusi, like the Tunisi, have a manifest destiny: to bring peace and enlightenment to all the races of Durs. Although they lead a war of cultural supremacy, as opposed to military, they are not above crushing their enemies on the field of battle in the name of the 'greater good'.
