Post 3:
Brief History of The White Knights


When Asgarnia was founded by King Raddallin, the White Knights pledged their allegiance to him. The White Knights played a vital role in the foundation of Asgarnia, expanding borders and defending the land from hostile races such as goblins. As thanks for their service, King Raddallin built them a castle in his new capital city of Falador. The castle still stands to this day and serves as the White Knights headquarters.

Some generations after the death of King Raddallin, our good King Vallance was coronated King of Asgarnia. The White Knights continued to serve the nation, until, sadly, King Vallance fell ill. With the disability of the King, Sir Amik Varze was appointed to manage the kingdom of Asgarnia due to the chosen separation of Crown Prince Anlaf. Sir Amik is the Grand Master of the White Knights and has governed Asgarnia in Vallance’s place for nearly a decade.

Asgarnia has seen drastic changes long after such time yet the White Knights stand proud alongside her ruling monarchy bound by duty, faith, and honor. With outposts and detachments all across her lands, the White Knights are ever stalwart in their mission to safeguard Asgarnia from threats both from beyond her borders and within.

Post 7:
The Squire Program


All squires are mandated to undergo and successfully pass the squire program before they are permitted to undergo a knighting ceremony. Each squire is assigned a mentor to assist them in their training. After completing their squire exam, all required training sessions, and a field exam, squires become eligible for knighting.

The training sessions will be carried out by the specialization masters. Among the categories that host training sessions will offer are combat, survival, medic, and scribe courses. A squire must be able to pass these said courses in order to progress.

The squire field exam will be the final test before knighting. The squire will be taken into the wilderness by the officers, and eventually left to their own devices. Their responses to various situations will be observed and they will be graded according to their performance.

A squire must also take a test concerning clan history and lore. The following questions may be present on any squire exam, as well as other questions, all answers will be found on this thread. A score of 7/10 is required for passing. If failed, the exam can be retaken in the next possible period.

Post 8:
Rank Responsibilities


Squire: Squires are the workhorses of the order tending to every need of their White Knight mentors until they learn what it means to be a White Knight of Falador. Squires often work around the castle and tend to stay out of combat unless necessary.

Initiate: Initiates are the backbone of the military order. They are often the front-line soldiers who see the most combat action.

Proselyte: Proselytes are more experienced than initiates. They command a small squad of lower enlisted knights. A knight may start mentoring a squire at this rank.

* Acolyte: Acolytes are very experienced in both combat and strategy. They are trusted with leading small groups of proselytes and initiates.

Partisan: Partisans are the most experienced of enlisted knights. They are masters on and off the battlefield in charge of training and commanding lower ranked knights.

Lieutenant: Lieutenants are the lowest ranking officers. They take command and planning over smaller missions and assist higher officers. They are also the lowest of the knight ranks to have the power to review and accept applications.

Captain: Captains work together to run the chapter. They do everything from organization to commanding battles in place of the commander. They are usually entrusted a fort and a company under their command.

* Commander:The Commander is in charge of supervising and running the chapter.

---Honorary Members: This particular title are given to past members who continue to contribute to the chapter in vital ways. They could be guests among the inner circle and also provide insight on the chapter's historical matters and help reintroduce returning members.

Post 9:
The Rules of Succession


The Inner Circle


The commander and the captains form the inner circle of the chapter. It is through them that the major and most private decisions of the chapter and the clan as a whole are made. Thus, it is only vital that these positions are always held with active members.

For Commanders

Should the event that the commander of the chapter has to vacate his/her position, the following will be the guidelines in determining the successor:

• It is the commander's responsibility to have a candidate among the active captains at the ready. The said candidate must be approved by the council of captains before being elevated to the former's position.
• Should the solution above fails and the current commander goes inactive, the remaining captains are to hold a meeting of succession preceded by the Head Scribe to vote for the next likely candidate.

For Captains

As one of the core elements of the chapter's leadership, the rank of captain can only be achieved through direct appointment by inner circle members.

• The commander can directly grant a lieutenant captaincy should the need for another captain arises.
• The existing captains can also call for a vote among the circle should a lieutenant is deemed worthy for the position.
• Like the commander, it is the duty of each captain to have a designated lieutenant always at the ready to represent or succeed him/her. The captain has the freedom to handpick which lieutenant he/she would take as an adjutant.
• A captain's selected adjutant can fill in for his/her captain's position at an inner circle's meeting with permission from the captain or commander.
