Silver Ravens

The Silver Ravens are an Order of Knights who uphold justice and order on Corwyn.

Based at the Blue Keep, the order was founded in the early Sixth Age by Lord Thalen Penrose, and the tradition has endured. The knights of Derianor are famous throughout Corwyn as the best equipped and most well-trained military force on the continent. The symbol of the Order is a silver eagle on a pale blue field, symbolic of the former greatness of the Ravinian Empire from which it was derived.

The order currently has a little over 1,000 member knights, led by Prince Varoth Penrose. Membership is very strict, and most applicants are not accepted. Requirements for acceptance are excellent strength, dexterity, wisdom, and charisma.

Most young boys join at age eight and train for nearly ten years before they are given their first mission. Clerics are also allowed to join as sworn priests of the order, and they are able fighters as well as healers. Those boys who do not gain acceptance into the order of Knighthood can chose to become priests of Shua or Ator, or simply become men-at-arms within the nation of Derianor, serving in the Watch.


Currently, the Silver Ravens send many aspiring Paladins on various missions, the least dangerous of which is escorting travelers going thru the Wildlands. The Silver Ravens have long worked with the Veiled Society to preserve order, and in cases where a powerful, evil wizard is on the loose, the Ravens will send an Enforcer Squad: made up of five high-level paladins and two senior clerics of Berevrom. When working together with a rogue scout from the Grey Watchers and a Veiled Society Triad, these enforcement squads are virtually unstoppable.
