The Blues represent the old guard, status quo. They want things the way they were decades ago (if not centuries ago), when many of its members remember or think there was 'better days' or that their houses had more privilages. If things change, these members feel they have much to loose, so they are protecting their ass so to speak.
Those are in the que, but there are seven npcs related to this plot line between the current begining of the line and them. Go to Comment
Solid information for the Yellows, though I would like to see a power player from the yellow side, such as a Yellow-Order of the Megenta Rose, A Yellow-Green, or a Yellow-Order of the Gauntlet to give the Yellow's some depth.
Unfortunately, the only reference I see to the Blues is that they oppose the Yellows. Seeing as they are listed first in the title of the submission, I would have expected more information about them. Go to Comment
I can see there being friction between the Gauntlets and the Order of the Magenta Rose, seeing as one is based around a pact between a long dead Queen and the King of the Elves, and the Gauntlet's protection of the King. Not to wander off into an anecdote, I had a similar conflict in my home game where in the Queen's Guard, the standing military of the Kingdom frequently came to odds, often violently with the Black Legion, the King's 'special forces' Go to Comment
I like these guys. They remind me of the knights around Henry the III (or one of those Shakespherian Historicals... but the one I mean is the one with Falstaff). Some will be strong and noble, others will be drinking buddies. Go to Comment
The Southern Knights were not specifically part of this set of posts, which is not yet done. I need to write up the King, the Queen, the two Princesses , and the Elven King. One to two plots to go with it. Hmmm, I am a bit behind.
A ceremonial detachment of soldiers, not entirely unlike the Winged Guards of the White Tree from Tolkien mythology. I especially like how the Order maintains it's duties despite the split between the Blue and Yellow, though there is some friction implied in the text. Go to Comment
Cool. I see these guys as being something like the fantasy equivalent of the Secret Service- pleasant, polite, and definitely not equipped for total war, but still more than tough enough to kick the posteriors off of any would-be assassin. I'd imagine that any sort of attack on the palace would be driven off in an elegantly brutal fashion (rapier through the chest, then violently kicked off the blade into another group of assailants).
