Order of Knights?

Post by Degren Brightforge on Fri May 27, 2016 7:20 pm

I've been contemplating making an order of knights:P They'd probably have the whole "Knight's Code" thing, and I'm working on them:P I'm just trying to get an idea of who thinks it's a good idea so that it won't turn out to be just myself and Auren:P Ideas? Opinions?

Lady Val may be able to help you here. Since she is nobility she might be able to give you all knighthoods and she would certainly be in favour of some gentlemanly knights. Smile

That's great to hear, Val! I drew up a code, trying to keep it under 5 or so oaths:P
1. I shall strive for the greater good, and help those in need.
2. I shall place character and concern for others over personal wealth.
3. I shall cherish Loyalty, honor, and humility above all.
4. I shall uphold my word, unto my death.
5. I shall defend those that cannot defend themselves.

Ideas?

Oooh sounds like the Elven code! Here is an excerpt from the rulebook for reference.

"Below is an excerpt of the Elven Code of Honour:
• An Elf may never knowingly allow another Elf
to come to physical harm.
• An Elf must try to prevent physical harm from
coming to other Elves.
• An Elf must assist other Elves who have fallen
on hard times.
• An Elf must never break their word or lie to a
Faerie or another Elf.
• An Elf should strive for the overall betterment of
all Fey in the world.
• An Elf must be a role model for all Fey and live
elegantly."

Maybe include something about helping fellow knights achieve their goals? Also who is the "greater good" and how would this apply in terms of the town? Will you be loyal to yourselves or Holdfast? These are perhaps some things to consider.

I left it vague purposefully, so that whoever decided to take the vows would be able to make his or her own take on it. I modified it from the 12 trusts of IRL knights:P



I will develop my life for the greater good.
I will place character above riches, and concern for others above personal wealth.
I will never boast, but cherish humility instead.
I will speak the truth at all times, and forever keep my word.
I will defend those who cannot defend themselves.
I will honor and respect women, and refute sexism in all its guises.
I will uphold justice by being fair to all.
I will be faithful in love and loyal in friendship.
I will abhor scandals and gossip-neither partake nor delight in them.
I will be generous to the poor and to those who need help.
I will forgive when asked, that my own mistakes will be forgiven.
I will live my life with courtesy and honor from this day forward.
