WIP.About the factionName of faction
Elven and human warriors hidden in the mountains. They can easily use both magic and blade. They are also useful in almost every combat eventuality, but they excel in no one area, making them more reliant upon their superior quality weapons and powerful magic. Their armour tends to vary, depending more upon the individual warrior than a set dress code. Though their numbers are by no means low, their armies tend to be powerful, but small.
Describe the themes
Colour-wise, the Mae'Vun'Sen tends to wear a lot of neutral colours. Their main colours are garnet and silver.-Units
Rank-and-file soldiers are the only units with a set dress code, and tend to be shorter than elite units. Chain covered by a surcoat, with plate greaves and bracers. (Think Crusaders, here.)
Elite soldiers elaborate robes, reinforced with armourweave to give adequate protection in the field of battle. Sometimes, they do wear heavy, Samurai-esque armour.-Architecture
Circular and stone, with a decorative vine motif around the tops and bottoms of the buildings. Like their warriors, the buildings are few, and often serve multiple purposes, but they are strong in their own right.
