In 1358 DR, the Tuigan tribes united under Horselord Yamun Khahan. The first tribe to join with them were the Naican, who at one time had shared pastures with the Tuigan. When the Tuigan campaigned against the Zamogedi, the Gur quickly joined them. Next, the Oigur were forced to join. By the end of Yamun Khahan's campaign, only the Fankiang still actively rebelled against him, though he had technically conquered them too.
Under Yamun Khahan's banner, the Grand Army of the Tuigan invaded the nations of Semphar, Khazari, Shou Lung, Thay, Rashemen, and Thesk. They were defeated at Phsant in 1360 DR by King Azoun IV of Cormyr leading an alliance of nations throughout Faerûn.
The Tuigan were organized by tribes. The name "Tuigan" was actually the name of one of the major tribes. They were closely related to the inhabitants of Kara-Tur. The tribes spoke Tuigan and used the Thorass alphabet. Tuigans could also be found in Semphar, Thay, Thesk, Narfell, and Rashemen.
In summer, Tuigan men enjoyed hunting snow-beasts in the mountains.
Behind the scenes
Tuigans are modeled after the Mongols.
