Obviousness is obvious. I quite like knights and all, be they the classic feudal sorts or those of Orders. Several times I have based them off of the likes of the Templars and Teutonic's. Though I've looked through plenty of other things, from the Arthurian mythos and their many offshoots in media to the Warhammer Orders, such as they are. And in I made a list of those that I remember. And if you've got your own orders and the like, throw them on in. Or thoughts on the Orders I'm throwing out there. Or even a discussion on them. This is probably more stream of conciseness at this point. The Order of the Iron Knights: Or the Thousand Years Knights. An orcish knightly order that has been around at least a thousand years. They ride dinosaurs, drakes (of the ironwood variety) and dragons into battle. In their most recent history has involved a near die out three times, all at the hands of the Golden Queen in one way or another. Unlike the collapse of many other Orders, they have stayed on, though much less powerful then they were. They are the protecters of the Greenkin's from their mountain fortress. That is now known as the Broken Fortress. The Order of the Hearth: An order dedicated to the goddess Hestia who protect hearth and home. They cross all racial lines and you can even find drow among them. Slightly tamer then they usually are. They are an Order of priests, priestess and knights with an affinity for fire and good food and family, biological or found. If they are found on different sides of the battlefield, they tend to go hang out with each other and have tea. Which has annoyed many a battlefield commander to just leaving them at home. They are likely the oldest knightly order in Eld. The Order of the Silver Spear: A wood elf Order that has gone extinct (as wood elf orders are wont to do). The personal Order of the Silver Queen Tiamia Sunleaf. An order rather well known for it's cruelty and willingness to burn everything and salt the earth and happily eat their enemies. So, it is a well known fact that they got exactly what they deserved when the Queen was burned to death by a hobgoblin Hearth Knight in her own armor and the Order butchered outside a goblin nursery. Only a few survived. The Order of the Crimson Hoof: The Golden Queen Inivia Sunleaf and the Order to succeed the Silver Spear. It was a highly trained Order that was known for it's horrific attrition rates and would eventually go extinct for all but it's leader and her squire who disappeared after the Lich Wars. They charged into battle against any odds and their training was known to be quite hard. To simply survive to knighthood was a challenge in of itself. Even then they still lost many knights regularly. And it had a large number of deserters, who would also be the remainders of it. The Order of the Silver Horn: Came about due to a deserter from the Crimson Hoof. An order of unicorn riders, the unicorns themselves being black coated and silver horned. Knights of half breed and monsters who ride against the Golden Queen. It was formed by a wood elf who realized just how frakked up his people were. They fight wherever the Crimson Hoof does and often suffer for it. Peach Knights: The drow's attempt at a knightly order. Chaos incarnate on the battlefield and eye blindingly colorful and with tactics and mounts not normally seen on any battlefield but one they happen to be on. This makes them a wild card on the field and much to many's annoyance, still hard to put down. They dance about the battlefield in full plate painted in bright neon colors. Some of them I remember. So, how about you? Or your thoughts? Whatever works.
