The Knights’ Guild is one of the oldest in Devardec. They are the proud and true upholders of the law. A Knight gives his very soul to the order and the art. Knights are respected and feared for their awesome combat ability. People who look to this road are usually true, strong-hearted people that want to protect the innocents of TERRIS.

Upon completing the quest to join, you will receive a Knights’ Guild Key and the following skills:
One Handed Weapons, Weaponsmithing, Armourer, Toughness, Riding

The Knights’ Code:

1. Honor and duty above all.
2. A Knight should show courtesy and consideration for others.
3. A Knight is the protector of the innocent and guardians of the weak. There is no honor in spilling the blood of the innocent.
4. A Knight should never steal the spoils of another adventurer’s victory.
5. Help always those in need within reason, for one day the needy may be you.
6. There is no place for racism in the Knights’ Guild, everyone is different and we must learn to accept these differences.
7. While we may forgive, we never forget. This makes us prepared for the future. and gives the edge in times of struggle.

These are the two Orders available to join after a member has been given an official Knight title. There are five ranks currently within each Order. While we follow the same general Code, the way we conduct ourselves in certain situations differs from each path, giving each member an outlet to continue to grow and learn. As a Squire-At-Arms begins their training on each Order, they will learn in better detail how each Order works.

After the Dubbing Ceremony things generally progress as usual for Knights. They can learn to become a Mentor if they wish and be granted the title Master Knight and give back to the Guild that has given them so much. Only through Honored Master can someone be up for vote and potentially “retire” to the rank Knight of the Round and serve on the Elder Council.

Note: Any future changes and/or additions to these policies must have final approval from the Patron and Hero.
