100 Knightly Orders

Watermarked PDF

A knight is a stalwart figure, representing strength will, and fortitude. However, while a knight may ride alone, no true knight is ever an island. They are bound to others of their kind by vows, honor, common cause, or their loyalty to something greater than themselves. These forces come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, styles and creeds, but they are known collectively as orders.

While some knights may sheathe themselves in steel and take the field upon fiery chargers, others may wield different weapons, or find themselves called to other services. From practitioners of the arcane to servants of the divine, and from warriors of stealth and guile to those who summon the raw powers of the outer planes, there are places for all of these knights on the following list.

Here are some sample results:

  • The Servants of the Strop: Coiffed and clean-shaven, at a glance the Knights of the Strop may look nothing more than high-fashion fops of little to no skill or purpose. However, every knight of the order is a trained barber surgeon, able to pull teeth, lance boils, set bones, stitch wounds and more. Recognized by the red and blue ribbons that flutter from poles outside their tents, these knights are a favorite among the common folk, and even among lower-ranking soldiers, for their ability to bring relief to those afflicted with everyday hardships.
  • The Order of the Ash Wand: Conjurers capable of calling an army to their side by invoking the names and rites of the outer planes, every knight of this order wields an ash wand set with an iron claw. As tools of war, these humble wooden instruments are far more feared than the sharpest sword, and they’re capable of changing the course of entire battles at a single stroke.
  • The Unlucky Fellows of the Busted Cup: Founded by hedge knights, mercenaries and ne’er do wells, these men found themselves hemmed in at the siege of Black Ridge along with the rest of Lady Armingdale’s severely outnumbered forces. With nowhere to turn, they offered their services to the embattled Lady, who had little choice but to accept. It was through their unorthodox planning, underhanded tactics and refusal to submit that the siege was broken, and the former sellswords found themselves knighted mostly for saving their own skins. That founding set the standard both for these knights’ misfortune, and for their talent at beating impossible odds through guile and willingness to do the unexpected.
  • The Cavaliers of The Untouched Horn: When Lady Frissone was told she could not ride to war to defend her people, her rage was enough to cow anyone who attempted to come near her. Storming into the woods, leaving her defenders behind, she cried her fury to the trees around her. She vented her fears, and begged for a mount that would carry her, and help her push back the enemies invading her lands. Laothaloran of the Verdant Tresses came to her then, and lowered his head in respect and submission. The black unicorn had heard her cry, and said he would bear her to all her battles as long as she took no husband. The two of them rode hard and swift, and Lady Frissone did not ask permission this time. Instead she rode to the front, and the two of them left broken enemies in their wake. Other ladies, left behind or told they could not do what their brothers could, quickly flocked to Lady Frissone and her wondrous mount. Many found unicorns willing to carry them, under the same conditions. These days the Cavaliers are known throughout the kingdom, and are seen as a place for wayward girls, as well as an order redefining the roles women have been made to fill.
  • The Servants of the Seven-Knotted Cord: Warriors and philosophers, the Servants all bear a cord hanging from their left shoulder. Each knot they tie is different, and each one signifies their mastery of a new and unique truth. Those who carefully study the tomes of the order find their strength grows greater, their constitutions are proof against disease and poisons and that their sword arms never seem to tire. Those who delve even deeper into the mysteries develop abilities many have called miraculous, though such masters of the seven knots are rare, indeed.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
