Knights of the Black Rose
|Attention, Scribe of the Lexicanum!
The Order's motto is Fear Not Death. The order recruits only from local nobility and its numbers have waned in recent years.
The Knights of the Black Rose were founded sometime during the Black Plague in 1111 IC by the Elector Count of Stirland to serve as his personal bodyguard, however their allegiance has changed multiple times over the centuries as their Grand Masters seek political power and influence. [1a] The order commonly uses motifs associated with death and the god of death, Morr.
