First Berelain sur Paedrag
The Dragon Reborn
Mayene is an independent city-state located on the end of a peninsula in the Sea of Storms. To the west is Tear and to the north are the Drowned Lands. The sign of Mayene is a golden hawk in flight. The ruling family of Mayene claims to be descended from Artur Hawkwing, and uses the Paendrag name. The man or woman who rules Mayene is styled "the First", which once meant the first lord or lady. The military force of Mayene, the Winged Guards, are commanded by Lord Captain Bertain Gallenne.
I've only had a quick look at the guide so far, but I couldn't find much additional information on Mayene. Perhaps you could tell us which, if any, cultures you have based it on and what the people are like, apart from that they don't exactly seem to suffer from excessive modesty. ;)
Well Mayene is based culturally on the cities of the Hanseatic league, as well as Venice and Genoa when those cities were world commercial powers and city states in themselves. Of course, I didn't put anything into the guide that I wanted to come as a surprise in the books. You have to remember that. Which is one reason I gave quite as much as I did about the history of the world and considerably less about the "present day."
