PostSubject: The Order of Tyr: Overview   Sun Mar 22, 2009 6:03 am



[Original writing and faction by Meow]

Overview

The Order of Tyr follows a tradition of snuffing out the dark forces in the world. Knights and Paladins of the Order cross the land, destroying evil and protecting the innocent. They follow Tyr mainly, along with Lathander. They are sworn enemies of Vampires, Necromancers, Demons, Orcs, and all other evils. The Order sometimes does not trust magic, even though some decide use it. The faction accepts any race, gender, and any good or neutral alignment. The Master/Mistress of Justice will chose his/her successor from among the Paladins and Priests.

History of the Order

Sir Vairas the Cunning was an upstart paladin who thought he would make a better Master of Justice. Vairas had always been distrusted by the other paladins, but he was useful, and that's what mattered. After an elaborate operation, which cut the Master of Justice off from most of his forces, Vairas led his rebels in an attack on the Order's castle; Justice Master Terinus Gavinrad led his small force in the defense of the castle. Hours away, the Order's main army, led by Varian Justicebringer, had been sent on a false mission concerning the threat of an undead army; To their dismay, nothing was found, and they began the trek home; Unfortunately they did not know what was unfolding back at Talibar.
Back at the Order's castle, the loyalist forces (Numbering around 20) were holed up in the keep; Surrounded by over 100 rebel knights, paladins, and others. Slowly, after hours of fierce fighting, the keep was stormed and Gavinrad and his loyalists were slain; the loyalists took Vairas and nearly half of the rebel force with them. After Vairas's death, his second-in-command took control of the battered rebel force and began hanging up the bodies of the loyalists. Minutes later, seeing the fires from the castle, Varian Justicebringer, leading the Order's army, charged into the castle, a quick battle ensued. The rebels were slaughtered and after much debate, a council of paladins chose Varian Justicebringer to lead the Order into a new age.
