This is my first post on Librarium Online, so i guess this is hello.
I am a starting Bretonnian player, and i was currently kicking around an idea for a Knightly Order of Templars devoted to the Lady of the Lake. They seek to follow the ideals of purity, righteousness, zeal, piety, chastity, moderation in wealth, and a protection and spreading of the faith of the Lady. Almost a Knights Templar for Bretonnians if you will.
A little rough history i have:
The knights were founded by a Grail Knight (dont have a name yet), who recieved a vision from the Lady of the Lake to set up a Castle-Monestary in the foothills of the Grey Mountains in Montfort. They take their name from the golden light that suffuses many Grail Knights and is said to radiate from the Grail itself. This light represents all of the ideals that knights strive to personify. The order has members from all levels of knighthood, all seeking the perfection that oneness with the Grail and the Lady can bring.
In summary, i was looking to form an order of deeply religious (some would say zealous) knights, who did not partake in the oppulent world of the other knights, instead choosing one of denial and martial might.
I was wondering if anyone could help with possible naming conventions, symbols, or any other information whether its tactical, artistic, or background to bring this order to life. Thank you
This is just some quick background history on them. I don't know if you can get any ideas from me, or if this will even help you but, I tried.
Ask me something about Warhammer: Age of Reckoning.
Thanks for the reply. The funny thing is, i actually did read all of the recent posts AFTER i wrote mine. good job on my part lol.
I do like your idea of the disgraced nobles trying to regain their honor by belonging to the order. My order is kind of the opposite in that the knights are seeking to retain, refine, and expand upon their honor, and all of the other great things of Bretonnian Chivalry.
