    So this has always been something we intended to do in Stormhold but I think recent events in the lands of Sosaria have demand we do it now!
    (F$*@#*$ we'll do it live!) ;D

    Back when Godric and I played on Siege Perilous we were in a guild (much like Stormhold) called Citizens of Wispwood Shire. The guild consisted of all sorts of folks, crafters, noobs, serious roleplayers, light roleplayers, pvpers, pvm, etc etc. But some of my best memories were of the battles we had with the likes of J-D (PKs), UND(Undead PKs), Orc(PKs), UDL(PKs).

    Often we found ourselves at a champion spawn suddenly beset by a raiding party intent on robbing us of our loot as we were finishing the spawn. Frequently we were outclassed by better fighters, but we had numbers. Even if they were noobs. We did our best to train them to fight and we often won. I'll never forget a particular battle in which CWS really hit their pinnacle of PvP prowess when a swarm of reds attacked us in T2A and we just demolished them. Often there were people there dedicated only to protection. Anyway, I want to recreate that the best I can.

    Seeking more bad guy roleplayers! hehe You don't have to be deep RP just have a story to why you are fighting or killing.

    The Knights of Stormhold will be your classic 'White Knights'. Good guys. We will protect the weak, the innocent and the noob. We will oppose brigands, thieves and murderers, we will strive to bring an opposing force of good to the evil in this land.

    Watch this space. More to follow.

    Excellent! I meant to make progress on this over the weekend but illness sidelined me. Hopefully by this weekend I'll have everything set and can begin recruitment!

    Ah! We should schedule some scrimmages with A^T! On Siege sometimes we'd all meet-up in Nujelm and have PvP practice night. (captains picking teams)

    Okay, so I finally got this stone placed and we also have our 1st Knight, Sir Spencer Tracy of Stormhold.

    The abbrv is -S- (which I wanted from the start hehe)

    Also this stone is operating as Stormhold's main stone until I can get the other one back from Godric. xD

    So we'll have:

    -S-
    Knights - Own houses in Stormhold
    Squires - New players assigned to knights to learn (bug with questions) xD
    Men-At-Arms - Normal PvPers
    Militia - Non-primary combat, can still swing a weapon
    Citizens - Non-combat classes, crafters, victims

    I kinda want us to look like the human well dressed/armored version of an orc horde. Not a bunch of mages, swords, shields and pokey things.

    It had been a rather quite night patrolling the Dungeon passages of Shame. That changed when I received a message via my communication crystal that the notorious murderer Scarra was attacking innocent citizens at the KoS Yew Guild Hall! Upon my arrival I found the KoS Halls quiet… too quiet. A KoS guild member lay dead on the floor, his body still warm to the touch. Suddenly the Murderer Scarra materialized in front of me! She was hidden the whole time! I was caught off guard as she launched multiple spells which tore into my body. I could feel myself resisting the magic but no one could withstand the shear power of this deadly assault I realized. It was my training as a Knight that saved my life, instinctively I reached for my belt and pulled out a healing potion, forcing myself to drink down its contents as I withdrew from the Hall in all haste.
    The battle was fully joined outside the KoS Hall as she perused. My faithful mount, “Glue” raced through the Yew country side weaving between trees with ease (and occasionally through them) as the battle carried on. Scarra’s lama seemed to be tiring as it had more difficulty navigating the trees than “Glue” did. Her mounts failure to navigate a rather thick bramble of bushes provided the opportunity I needed to put my deadly quarterstaff to use. She was quickly overwhelmed by superior close quarter combat skills. The Murderer Scarra had killed her last innocent citizen of Britannia. At least until the God of Chaos choses to give her life again…

    Didn't the -S- come from the Syndicate , which originally had the Keep at the front of Marble Island on S.P if memory serves me right...and I know it does since I went on to own it for several years..stand out sig to steal,if your gonna steal , steal big.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Nay -- we have no association with them. We are two abbrvs: 'S' (RP) and -S- (PvP) Our founding members actually come from a guild called Citizens of Wispwood Shire [CWS] on Siege Perilous. Stormhold our city here is the oldest player run town on the shard.

    So...What's this about some good guys running around. I once heard of a group like that, with a long bow archer in their midst.
