Like I've noted in the submission Lord of Aberdovy, they can be seen in a much more rational light... they could be bound together by their vengeance. It is likely the culprits are for each of them untouchable, but together they are strong. Rarely would they be able to strike directly, but seemingly blind raids on the powerbase of the higher nobles will bear fruit with time.
If you help me with my revenge, I will help you with yours.
That said, there will be surely knights marked a bit more by their past, up to downright psychopaths who take their revenge out on the whole world. But the core of the organisation might be like this - cold, planning and calculating where to strike next and make it seem like a random attack of madmen. Go to Comment
No, rather than wearing such decoration, the shrouds are worn under their armor and their helms hide their identity. Should a Knight be killed, they are buried in their shrouds, an action that displays their conviction, no mercy, no quarter. Go to Comment
I like this Scras... I wish it had a little more detail in the order itself than their desire to murder.
My one question is why? I realize you stated that the knights have lost everything and are punishing the world for their pain... why? Even if they changed their perspective and started down the darker road, why would they be hell bent on murdering commoners, raping, killing? Would they not take up their anger against those who caused them pain? Their family died in a war, they kill those responsible for the war. Their son was killed in a bar fight, they go and murder everyone responsible to include the bar keep and the sailors and all their crew that were involved. I find it hard to fathom they would go and poison innocents just because. It is still a good idea though.
Go read my Tenets of Shadow to see if this would fit in with them... Go to Comment
I like that you impart a lot of information with few words. One of your skills that I appreciate most. Not my favorite band of knights, but then again, everything about them makes sense, and comes together. I like that they are always dressed for death. Nice touch! Overall though, I've read and come across many similar groups. Go to Comment
Agree with Muro on this - the shrouds are a nice touch.
A travel book I have from the turn of the last century (pre WW-I) indicates that certain orders of monks (Trappist I beleive) work a few minutes each day at digging their own graves in the morning. Go to Comment
Perfect to give somebody that every player looks for in every town he ever visits. Acn only stand so many loud bartenders that yell "Wench!", spill your drink when serving it and are happy to pass you the latest town gossip.
These are refreshing! Bonus points for being crazy useful. Go to Comment
well, it is this potion that some guy in a dark robe gave me. it cracked my mind and made me dig up junk from the 1.0 forums. I was thinking of submitting 30 bar wenchs, 30 children, and 30 horses Go to Comment
