Knights of Valour
Knight HistoryIt was the Fourth Spring, called by some, the Age of Glory and Peace. The city of
Valour stood proud and victorious, over its fifty year war with the shadowspawns.
Queen Victoria acclaimed the brave soldiers who defended her city, the City of
Valour. She selected a distinguished group of soldiers, the bravest and most
honorable and made them her own bodyguards and called them The Knights of Valour.
There were two young soldiers that became Knights: one was a young, confident
blademaster, named Sarich, and the other, a master strategist and field marshall
named Rodyn. They were brothers and friends coming from the same village, until one
day, Sarich walked into the Royal dining room to find the Knights, all the servants
and Queen Victoria slaughtered. He stood in disbelief when he saw Rodyn holding
a bloody dagger. Rodyn, the man he grew up with, one of the Knights on duty that
night guarding the Queen, had done the unthinkable. Rodyn had sold his soul to
the Dark Lord. As Sarich ran towards Rodyn with his sword raised, Rodyn fled
through the window and took a three story fall. Remarkably, Rodyn survived and
escaped the city.
From that day on, Sarich declared the Knights of Valour would do more than just
protect the Queen of Valour, they would seek out and destroy all
Evil and Shadows
of the land in Queen Victoria's memory. Queen Victoria has long been dead and
Sarich's life as a mortal ended in battle. Thousands of years have passed since
that fateful day, but the Knights still walk the path of Light and stalk the
Knight PurposeThe Knights of Valour devote their lives to the path of Light and Righteousness.
They are the most honorable and bravest people of the land. The Knights of Valour
are an aggressive militant group that seeks out and destroy the Evils of the land.
They have no mercy or pity for any Evil that walks the land. They will not rest
until all the Shadows and Evil are dead. Yet, through their honor, they are not
too proud to help those in need and protect the weak. Only the bravest and most
honorable, who wish to devote their life to the path of Light and hunt Shadows can
become a member of the Knights of Valour.
Knights are courageous, kind, merciful and honorable. They have the best qualities
mankind has to offer. Knights are expected to slay evil, it is in their philosophy,
but they must be kind as well, trying to convert those of darkness to see the light.
They are required to follow a Code of Chivalry at all times.
Knight ProcessStep #1 Application: If you meet the above requirements and restrictions send an
application to the Knights (APPLY TO KNIGHT). In your application, include your

the best Knight you can be. The Knight is also expected to teach you the best
methods in combat against an evil foe. Willingness to learn as well as a good
attitude is mandatory. During your squireship you are expected to make a name for
yourself. Only when your name is hailed as a champion of good will you receive
your last test before knighthood.
Step #3 Interview: Once your name is renowned and you have passed the standards
passed upon all squires an interview will be given. The leader of the Knights
will conduct this interview. Mortal and/or immortal. Be prepared to answer
questions without a concrete answer. This is your final test, a test of you
mind. If you pass this test you will be Knighted on the spot. If not you will
either return to being a squire or be rejected.
