While this is attached to the Magenta Rose Cluster of submissions, this (and the Blues and Yellows) are completely independent as well, being "plug and play" in any High Noble's court you want. Go to Comment
This is a great way to counter act the brinksmanship all too often associated with politics. With the addition of Moderates to balance two two extremes of the political system, the situation becomes slightly more stable since the lines of battle are no longer clear, especially in the light of some of the Colored donning the Green.

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.
The party comes across a nice hermit in the woods. He gives them food and lodging for the night. They awaken to his terrified screams. "East! It's east! Stop it! It'll kill us all!" The poor horror-stricken hermit dies thrashing in agony, one boney arm outstretched, his finger pointing to the east.
