The Knight is a physical combatant. He or she is concerned with the study of physical prowess (weapons, melee, swordplay, endurance) rather than over the airy magical realms. Consider the Knight profession if you are fast, quick-witted or aggressive, but keen to keep simple and effective. They are strong in combat both offensively and defensively though rely on good maintenance of weapons, armour and equipment.
The Knights Guild is based in the city of Mercinae, and they are the oldest guild in Avalon. They align themselves firmly behind the forces of justice and light (led, traditionally, by the King of Mercinae). Members of the Knights Guild are expected to uphold honour and the chivalric code against all adversity. They are bound by notions of altruism and defence of the poor and weak. The Knights Guild has been a bastion against the onset of evil for centuries and anybody considering joining their ranks must have a stout heart, an iron will and a keen blade.
Words from Zaphod, the first guildmaster
The Knights Guild has remained close to its founding ideals through its long history. Mercinae demands a sense of fairness and altruism from its oldest guild and the guildmembers are expected to adhere to that. Learn your Chivalry first, and then your Endurance and Swordplay, and you will soon be a force to be reckoned with in the land.
Words from Hardin (44yr), the current guildmaster
