The Age of Arcana
The Order of the Silver Sword
The knights of the Silver Sword are a special contingent of warriors led by a loyalist to the old bloodline of the Lynnvander. The Silver Sword used to be the honor guard and military advisors to the royal family. Now they are nothing more than another faction of the post-imperial realm trying to gain followers among stragglers and warlords that are fighting to claim their own territory. Aware that the heir of Lynnvander is responsible for the fall of the Iltherian Empire, the knights of the Silver Sword seek to build up enough support to royal family to revive to Tallinad as it once was and restore its connection to the power of the land itself.
In the meantime, many of the rising factions factions blame the royal bloodlines of the land for failing to defend the realm against Iltherian invasion. In a world where each man is for his own the knights of the Silver Sword remain loyal to the family they swore to protect generations ago.
Knights of the Silver Sword have never been part of the Iltherian army, refusing to be drafted into service even on the threat of death. They are men of honor, many of which were freed from the mines and the work camps where they were held as slaves by the empire. They are viewed by most groups as archaic fools who refuse to let go of old tales while the Old Order Iltherians consider them to be vermin that need to be disposed of. They travel the continent like nomads hunting Orc-kin and searching for those that still remember what the world was like before the blight of Iltheria.
