Shields and Swords: K.N.I.G.H.T Academy (OOC)

Postby Ceystile » Sun May 19, 2019 12:31 am

We've all heard of the grand old days of knights and chivalry. Bold warriors, bound by the code of honor, loyalty, fidelity and faithful service to a cause. To defend the weak and protect people against the forces of evil and corruption. Or you may just remember the cool armor and weapons, which that's cool too. But being a knight is about way more than just swinging a sword around to whack people with: this is training, hard work, sacrifice and tons of risks. It’s a life of privilege but also duty, and it’s never an easy one even when you’re off duty. Some of you may end up in the Queen’s army protecting the country, others may end up as personal guards or bannermen for nobility or royalty, still others may become sellswords for hire...it’s up to opportunity but mostly to you. Who knows, maybe if you prove your worth enough you may just have bards writing great ballads and poems about your deeds for generations to come.

Kademan North Institution of Guard Heroes in Training, or K.N.I.G.H.T Academy has been training the finest knights on the continent of Kadema since 470, about 800 years ago. Each new student starts out with the rank of Squire, and are split into four houses known as Orders...each representing different values of a different knightly order. Each order is headed by a grand master, who serves as house master and guardian of the students under his charge. A seventh year student who proves their merit is captain, they report directly to the grand master and leads their younger brethren. Kinda like a prefect really.


The Order of the Black Rose values courage, chivalry and honor. It is by far one of the most traditional of the four Houses, if not the most. Founded in 489 by Sir Hadrian Jasper, its symbol is a black rose with its vines twined around a silver sword. Its members are recognizable by their black, gold-trimmed armor/livery and more formal fighting style.

The Order of the Silver Cross is a holy Order almost as old as the country itself. A group of Templars devoted to the worship of the God and Goddess, they value strong faith above all else and a willingness to fight and die for that faith. Hundreds of years ago, they ended the Holy War that raged the land when the demons attacked, some however became militant and started persecuting those of different faiths. They were stopped, punished and disbanded by the king and only reformed recently, with a less violent credo. However history is hard to scrub off. Known for their silver and white armor/livery, their symbol is a silver cross inside of a golden sun-corona

The Order of the Serpent: The serpent order values cunning, and employs the use of strategic battle plans more often than brute force. It’s the smallest of the orders, but they know many different ways to make the most of their smaller group. Their fighting style uses speed and agility, and knowing where to strike to end the battle in the most quick and decisive way possible. Their armor is silver with dark green trimmings, and their crest is a serpent coiled around a halberd.

The Order of the Red Hound: One of the oldest of the four orders, the Order of the Hound are some of the best and most renowned trackers in all of Kadema. If you need something found, they'll usually find it. Their fighting style is based on stealth and using their five senses to their best advantage...as such, they tend toward lighter armor that doesn't slow them down or hinder their vision/hearing as much. Their armor is trimmed with red and cream, their livery is red and cream and their symbol is two rearing red hounds flanking either side of a pair of crossed swords inside of a red circle.


As each student gains levels and experience, their ranks in their orders increase as they graduate from year to year. Of course, very few reach past the rank of knight until [i]after they graduate, it's not impossible but ranks higher than marshall-at-arms are usually only earned through great deeds in battle. It could take years to work ones way up. However, it's not impossible to achieve such ranks when you're in school. Subjects, alongside the typical weapons training and military tactics also include armor/weapon care, smithing, physical education and the typical boring arithmetic of reading, writing and math. Yes, we're not going to have any dumb knights out here. Students will be sent on missions from time to time coming from the Queen herself, how you do in these missions will reflect on your grade...higher ranking students get harder missions.[/i]

Order Ranks:
Squire: The lowest rank, an apprentice knight. Usually helps the higher-ranking knights as assistants and does tasks such as feeding the horses or caring for weapons in exchange for training. Often accompanies their knight into the battlefield.

Knight- A knight that has earned their armor and sword, and as such completed their training. They are official knights, but not much else.

Marshall at-Arms- A knight that is in charge of all the weapons and armor for their order.

Commander: The head of a battalion of knights, they are allowed to lead a squad into battle and conduct missions.

Captain-General: The deputy head of an order, often responsible for leading the senior knights into battle. They often devise battle-plans with the grand masters.

Grand Master- The head of a knightly order, the highest rank that one can obtain.


Students' uniforms are a dove gray blouse and trousers with a sleeveless tunic in their order's livery colors while the order's symbol is on one sleeve of the blouse. The student may wear their own coat of arms on the other sleeve...armor is only to be worn during missions or sparring sessions and students are allowed to wear their normal clothes outside of class or on weekends. Full plate armor is only to be worn during battle and missions, in sparring sessions you wear light armor and mail. This school goes on for six years, beginning at age twelve with the graduating age usually being eighteen. At the end of each year, the senior students who have proven themselves will be knighted in an official graduation ceremony, something that the whole school turns out for.
If you think you have what it takes, I welcome you to the academy.
