Sir Ashton Bellon of the Belmonfaire plains, 24 years old, Young and reckless, willing to stand by what he thinks is right until complete failure and finally brave and warm heart towards the peasant's and the church. His coat of arms is a white hand clutching a white key on a black field.

Once our third baronetcy (Rebache) is taken, the landed knights will need to decide where their lands are. This affects who they owe loyalty to, though medieval succession and land control could be complex and you may owe fealty to a different lord than the rest of the baronetcy.

Sir Alain Artois, free knight of Morbray county, known as "The Jester"

26 years old, born in the 348th year after the founding of Pendor. His father was a landed knight in the sevencross mountains during the reign of King Ulric. The Kingdom of Sarleon was always notorious for its quarrelsome nobles, and the house of Artois was caught up in one.

During the Unification wars, when Alain was serving as a squire to a knight, the baronet his father served under seized their lands and stole their rightful holdings on a trumped up claim that Ulric couldn't spare enough time to properly pay attention to it. Alain was notified, and all he had left was the armor on his back and his horse. His knight, Sir Gaidon Ertry, was a respected knight, an old friend of his father who kept Alain out of respect for his old father. He taught him everything he needed to know about combat, and knighted him as a final act before he died.

The Baronet quickly betrayed King Ulric and his liege, and sided with the new king of Pendor, Mordred Adalhard. He kept all his lands, and Alain wanted revenge, for his father and his house's dignity. He became a wandering knight-errant.

Alain's coat of arms, three golden fleur-de-lys on a field of dark red, had to be abandoned for the time being. Alain assumed an arms of assumption, a Single White rose on a field of green, and set out under the name "Sir Maximillian". He soon found himself enjoying the company of commoners far more than the pompous nobles, and became a champion of the people. He won tournaments and started to challenge wandering free knights to random duels, to train for the day that he would face his old enemy once more.

Knights in the heartlands soon began to fear to travel alone, lest their blood is spilled by the "thorn" of the "White Rose". Soon, he joined a tournament where he was able to fight the baronet's son. After a joust, they retired to a tavern...

Spoiler:
 
A week later, it was said that a knight from long ago had returned, Sir Alain Artois, with the old shield of his house, apparently he had been adventuring in far-off Amala and returned to his home. It was also reported that he had slain Sir Maximilian and burned his body, ending his terrifying reign of the rogue knight.

He was 22 when he achieved his revenge. For the next several years he felt empty and alone, wandering the lands, without a home, just participating in whatever tournaments or pit fights he needed to to sustain himself. He soon met a minor lord from the baronetcy of Morbray, who offered him a home, and employment after hearing of his deeds as a knight.

After he became a household knight, he devoted himself to the service of his baronet. He became quite more amiable when he finally got a home, and is called the jester due to his humor and stories and general shenanigans he does. He is willing to do anything he needs to do for his lord, the only noble he finds himself being able to truly respect and appreciate. He has no desire to return to his old village, Sir Alain will follow his lord and his descendents as a loyal servant.

To this day, he goes to village taverns and sings and dances to the same song over and over again.

Will this get its own mini-event styled subforum? Would be a lot easier to post and keep track of all those IC scenes.

Sure, this thread is just for the preliminary organisation and to see whether people actually want this, which reminds of the fact that only twelve people have voted so far. Since this is not a simple majority vote, but meant to find out whether you think this could be fun, please vote if you haven't done so yet.

Ser Carax "Clovershield" Bouss.

Born a common innkeeper's son, he could only dream of great battles and knighthood. But when his father arranged him to squire a minor lordling of the Kelredan Barony, those dreams were fulfilled. He served under a knight and was happy, but soon learned the true way of combat on the battlefield and during the unification wars. He grew hard during the struggles, but his true advancement came during the Siege of Sarleon. He was wounded, badly, but his master suffered death in the form of a quarrel flying through his open visor. Carax was noted for his performance and was later knighted by the late Lord of Kennet County. Thus he became a free knight. After the Siege of Sarleon he took to wearing a shield with a four-leafed clover painted on it, for good luck, and so he was named Clovershield.

Carax Bouss is 33 years old and has two sons with his wife Anna, a common tavern wench.

Annoying, but unless no one steps in for the baronet, I'll take it.

So I was thinking either a landed knight (if their slots aren't all taken yet)

or maybe a Griffon/Royal Emissary that would come in later if fighting were to break out.

If Iskar would approve of this.

My argument for it would be that being so close to Sarleon, any fight would grab the attention of the Order,but then again if this is trying to get away from all the Order politics i would understand if you didn't approve of it, and since i'm already a Griffon i don't mind someone else taking this idea.

Your call Iskar

Yes, there is plenty of space for landed knights. In fact, we'll probably have to make most of them NPCs - there are up to twelve of them, including the three who served the dead baronet.

There is plenty of space for landed knights and as you said yourself I think it would be beneficial to keep the orders out of it. For roleplay purposes Duke Darlion as well as the military orders that have heard of the struggle have made it clear that they want to part in the petty quarrels of minor nobles, since the current situation is already tense enough.

PS: Also, considering the order of magnitude of troops involved (5, 10, 20, ...) even fighting is not going to pose any kind of danger to the realm's stability and - as an OOC reason - if we let the duke or orders involve themselves in the event they would be able to simply sweep all participants off the battle field with their troops, so most of the roleplay by the baronets would be pointless.

Unless all the baronets and their knights team up and attempt to assassinate the duke?

An army of faith it is!

Everything is prepared. Swords and spears have been forged in Mobray and are under the protection of the Church. Angry villagers from all over Pendor have also come to train and become part of the newly created faith militia.

Okay that's fair enough, it was just an Idea. So I'll be a Landed knight (can I choose who too?) if so i'll be to the recently deceased.

It's unlikely more people will participate... I say start writing introductions?

Funeral-feast for our beloved recently deceased Baronet?

You should wait until this evening. I'll post the baronet-Rebache application then. That is, unless someone rises and says that they want it, in which case I would be happy to oblige.

I think we should finish the current line of events at Cez first. We should also post the recruitment ad on the TW forums before starting.

Perhaps we should flesh out a few NPCs as well, so people can step in and take them over after we've started without having to build them from scratch and pretend they've been there all along. Specifically, these NPCs could be controlled by anyone (as long as it's properly in character and not overwhelmingly self-advantaged) until claimed.


An example: (A possible free knight NPC)
Sir Rayton Lengaerd comes from the cold North, a veteran of many battles with Mystmountain raiders. He moved south to these lands a few years ago, leaving behind both the hated cold and the enemies made by the Adventuring company he fought with. At twenty-eight, he is still young, but he carries a number of scars both physical and mental. His hand is never far from his sword, and only rarely can he be dissuaded from wearing armour.

Sir Rayton does not see himself as a violent man, but others would disagree. He does not respond to pressure peacefully; he has survived the mountains north of Senderfall, and in those mountains only the harshest measures bring survival in the face of danger. However, as long as he does not feel threatened, he tends to be calm and almost friendly. He is somewhat careless with his money, though not with the care of his equipment and horse.

As a free knight, Sir Rayton has a squire - worth fleshing out if this NPC is used.

Also, feel free to take any portion of this and adapt it to a different character if you're struggling with concepts.

Iskar, by Cez do you mean:
a.) Shadow Legion - Silvermist event with me.
b.) Legion summer games + assorted side-events with Psychozoa and assorted people?

Tonedyr: I agree with Tonedyr to a certain extent. I think we should until the people motivated by the ad have joined before creating NPCs.

b)

I'd like not to leave too many loose ends when we engage in the intermediate event or it will cause just more confusion.

PS: Regarding Tonedyr's suggestion: Perhaps we could have two or three more preset characters that newcomers can choose to play when they still lack ideas for a character of their own? I'd include these into the advertisement post then.

Chonrad Blackwood, of Darkened Forests, age 24

Chonrad is the fifth knight in the line of Blackwood, and the only heir to Salador Blackwood. Chonrad’s greatgreatgrandfather inherited the Blackwood village in Mobray County through being an acknowledged bastard of the Baronet of Kelredan. And ever since has the newly-founded Blackwood House ruled over the fief, and always the local Baronet has accepted the family’s pledge to them. However, the baronet and his heirs have all died under various circumstances. Only his youngest daughter, and Chonrad’s mother, was spared. This in turn meant that the baronet of Rebache went to the Blackwood line. Salador died few days after the baronet of Kelredan, and the responsibility for the lands now remain on Chonrad’s shoulders. It remains to be seen, if he is up to the task.

Just like everyone in his family, Chonrad was born in the Blackwood Manor. It is also the place where he lived nearly all his life, which was a mixed blessing. On one hand Chonrad didn’t have much social contact with people other than visiting nobles. On the other hand, he had a lot of time to devote to his studies and swordmanship, which he is very proud of. Indeed, his whole childhood was nothing but studying under his tutors and practicing under the two nameless knights serving the Knight of Blackwood. Those experiences shaped him to become the man he is now: cold and emotionless. However, he also became a forward-thinking person, who holds interest in development and stability of the surrounding area and the realm.

Chonrad himself is a mid-length well-fit person. The tall trees of the forest combined with all the time spent inside the manor have made his skin pale. Just like all the people in his family, Chonrad has a straight black hair and a noble face of authority.

Chonrad has only recently become used to his new lands. The rich trading areas of Rebache have filled his coffers and the Rebache manor is now furnished with heirlooms from the Blackwood Manor which now stands empty, ready for a landed knight who wishes to enter Blackwood’s service. While he didn’t care much about Kelredan Castle in the beginning, the rumoured movement by the other baronets has made him wary, for a baronet too powerful might attempt to take his fiefs. To prevent this from happening, and to expand his area, Chonrad has started to push his claim to the castle.


* The revised Chonrad, is this good?
