  10. The Poor-Fellow Soldiers of Horen and the Temple of Kaer’Rosencrantz The Order of Saint Lucien of Savoie The Army of the Church of Canon, Soldiers of GOD Mission The Order of Saint Lucien, a body of men whom have taken to the call of his holiness, the High Pontiff, has been reformed after centuries of inactivity in order to reform a stable and armed militant wing of the Church of Canon to both defend and enforce the tenets of the faith. As such, the Order of Saint Lucien is not an Order which responds to any secular government, thusly allowing the Order to undertake missions considered unconventional to many. Such missions include expeditions into the corrupted wastes of Iblees’ kin, the hunting of heretics/abominations, the safeguarding of the Clergy and its Missionaries, the escorting of Pilgrims to holy-sites, charitable work and to ultimately educate the masses in the word of GOD. Faith Brothers of the Order are to follow a strict format of the True Faith of the Humans. All are expected to devote themselves to the forgotten sect of Lucienism, after Saint Lucien of Savoie, the patron saint of the Order. They are hence called Lucienists. This faith protects the men of the order from punishment in the afterlife, and, when practiced, provides a sense of monastic servitude. The conservative aspects of the Lucienist ideology forces the Order to be pious representatives of their master on the soil, the High Pontiff. Many Lucienists can be seen in the halls writing books and re-printing various copies of the Holy Scrolls and Church Thesis. A Promise of Rebirth The Order of Saint Lucien, despite a mission to rid the world of heresies through physical means, is unique among all other holy orders, bearing the power to convert and forgive those who cross their way. A last plea for mercy is accepted for criminals, thieves, and heretics who look for a way out of both physical and eternal punishment. Enlistment is for life, unless deemed physically or mentally unfit to continue. In rare occasions, timed servitude can be granted, but this does not allow for one to rise up any more than that of a regular brother. Ranks The Basic Ranks in the Order are as follows: Initiate, Brother, and Knight. Attached to these basic ranks, many specialist ranks remain available to applicants. How to Join First, you must reach the Human Capital of Adelsberg. Look for a cart clad in White and Crimson, entitled “Diocese of Metz”. Hop upon the cart, conduct your pilgrimage to Commandery of Kaer’Rosencrantz. Once there, talk to a brother for more information on joining. Once approved by at least two brothers, you will fill out a ledger depicting your personal information. https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/167146-the-poor-fellow-soldiers-of-horen-and-saint-lucien-of-savoie/?tab=comments#comment-1578688 ((To FMs: This is not a duplicate thread. This is within the sub-forum of Guilds and Organizations and serves the purpose of recruiting whereas the other post is informational))

History The post-Exodus age brought new challenges to the pampered remains of the Holy Orenian Empire and the Church of the True Faith. Bandits mercilessly roamed the lands, looking for any sign of wealth in a land stripped bare of value by endless factional war. Abresi, once a jewel of Human aristocracy and power, degraded into a cesspool of crime and sin. Petty gangs roamed the streets where such acts would have been swiftly put down years before, and the gall to rob anyone— even the High Pontiff— was plainly present and commonplace. Churches and clergymen fared no differently, and were only spared from meeting their maker by the hands of red-masked men for their precious tithes. Fed up with these constant hostilities towards passive men, Lucien II sent word for any god-fearing men who would be willing to take up the sword and cross. Though most of the Order of the White Rose had left with Emperor Godfrey V to the mythical lands of Aeldin, a handful remained in an unsuccessful bid to guard their home fortress of Ard’Kerak in the Kaedreni heartland. After being ousted from their native homeland by competing Raevir, Flay, and Dwarf-backed Adunians, these veterans found themselves on the streets of Abresi, penniless and without direction. Of them, Jack Rovin— a mere man-at-arms in the White Rose, formed a mercenary band with his son, Voron Rovin, and an ousted Adunian noble Rymuel Elendil. Though initially performing small contracts for their community, the band was swayed to come to the aid of Lucien II, narrowly saving him as he fended for himself against a group of marauders. With his life saved by these strangers, Lucien II offered them a place as unique holy men; those who would take up the sword in defense of the cross. Although initially hesitant, the men agreed that their lives would be better lived under service of a force of good. This band took up Lucien I, Velwyn Ashford, as their patron saint, and thus the Order of Saint Lucien was born. Offering service to God and his clergy in exchange for expungement of criminal records and entry into the Seven Skies proved to be a lucrative investment for hundreds of sinners, who made their way to the Order’s mountainbase in the Eastmarch, near the ruins of the former Imperial Palace. The Lucienists numbers swelled, attracting the attention of competing forces. Local nobles were notably unhappy with their newfound lack of manpower, and the Decterum, the official military band of the Kingdom of Oren, was suspicious of the competitive nature of the Order. Although the Lucienists kept well within the good graces of King Heinrich ‘the Bastard,’ hostilities were amplified and only narrowly avoided on the old Imperial roads. The authority of the Church to enforce clerical law often collided with the local interests of petty lords and the Decterum, raising tensions skyward. As time passed on, the Order found it necessary to establish a new bailiwick upon the River Pontar, just miles from the ruined fortress of Ard’Kerrak in the former Kingdom of Kaedrin. This permitted their patrols to run farther than had previously been possible, and created a well-supplied armoury on the strategic divide between the Orcish-controlled ruin of Kingston and the rest of the Orenian Kingdom. This expansion and flaunted power was not taken well with the local Raev residents, who had both resented the advanced architectural secrets employed by the Lucienist carpenters and their adoption of Lucien I’s dogma over the locally-preferred Ruskan Orthodoxy. Soon enough, a local guerilla faction known as the Coal Miners’ Union waged a continuous assault on the Order’s bases, leading to the issuing of the Proclamation of the Deep Cold by Grandmaster Jack Rovin. This demand for reparations was refused by the guerillas and their supporting nobles, and so forth the Raev-Lucienist War was ignited. This conflict was put on hold, however, by larger tensions to the south. War broke out between the fledging Kingdom of Oren and the Dwarf Empire that had just brought humanity to its knees. Operations at the southern half of the continent were abruptly paused, and a seemingly successful war against Setherien left the Lucienists confident. At the request of King Heinrich, the Order successfully lobbied Lucien II to aid the Orenian Kingdom against the Dwarven Empire. Early successes in battle were directly correlated with the Order’s intimate knowledge of siege equipment— mechanisms seldom used since the Exodus. Naturally, tensions between the Raevir components and Lucienist forces arose, and in-fighting between both the various commanders and their subordinates. Insulted after a particular round of bickering in-which the Raev commanders accused the Lucienist Order of being “useless”, Grandmaster Rovin withdrew his forces completely, arguing that if they were so useless, the Raevir could win the war on their own. The next battle was promptly lost, and a temporary stalemate established between the Humans and Dwarves. Domestic warfare broke out once more. Although their domestic enemies caused a variety of problems in supplying the network of Lucienists bases, a growing legion of undead warriors was amassing in the snowy wastes north of the Petty Kingdom of Herendul. The Order thusly sent scouts and a small task force under Ser Rick Felder to investigate. In response, the Harbingers of Setherein were raised to combat the Order, and a frontline was established on the northern Orenian border. Furthermore, the Order expanded into the Elven-splinter factions in search of capable auxiliary troops and in search of Setherein-allied cultists. The Order eventually rooted out a cultist insurgency in the Elven Conclave and was rewarded generously with supplies and disposable elf-power. Although once holding staunch traditional values towards these beings, the Order found great use in converting them and using the agents on missions to areas where humans were not easily able to infiltrate— namely the city of Hae’lunor and the reclusive Dwarven nation. These agents were key to informing the Lucienists about a pending invasion plan of Setherien to take over the beloved Cloud Temple. Although too late to rescue the sacred land, a force of Lucienists and Decterum were able to forge an uneasy alliance against the common foe and expel the horde from the area. Later, this was granted by King Heinrich to the Lucienists, who then went on to establish a new papal seat for the recently-adorned High Pontiff Adeodatus. The feuding between his personal bodyguards and the devout followers of the Ruskan Orthodoxy cost High Pontiff Adeodatus popularity with one of the largest sects of the Church of the True Faith. With his new palace still under construction upon the Old Cloud Temple, he held many audiences with Wilfriche Buron, who demanded vast reforms to benefit the Orthodoxy in order to avoid a schism. During the last of these talks, the undermanned Lucienist garrison at the temple was caught off-guard by a large band of Ruskan and Orcish raiders. While putting up a valiant defense against the aggressors, a runner was sent out in a desperate effort to arrange a relief party. In the meantime, the Lucienists held for three days and three nights. Deprived of food and water, a courageous man-at-arms known as Octavio ran out from behind the fortifications with a pickaxe, as his sword had broken earlier in the fight. Single-handedly, the men behind the thin wall witnessed as the lone Man-at-Arms stood his ground against five, and then ten raiders, making it back with a handful of fresh provisions. Inspired by the feat of bravery, the Lucienists launched an offensive at the dawn of the next day, catching the raider camp by surprise. As the forces fought on, a roaring could be felt bolting through the ground, and leading a cloud of dust rode a relief force lead by Faiz Kharadeen and a band of converted guardsmen from the Elven Conclave. The raiders were nearly all killed, but at great cost to the small Lucienist garrison. The Order sought a decisive end to the domestic conflict. Their wish was granted when the Lucienist garrison of Ard’Krallachk, marching out to investigate the ruins of Castle Greywynn, were met by a large Ruskan-Orcish war party on the frozen fields of Savoy, including King Heinrich’s Decterum. Although outnumbered and on inferior ground— the Ruskans held a steep hill— the centerline under the Knighted Elendil Lord and the auxiliary forces of Faiz Kharadeen were able to hold back a Ruskan advance. This allowed Grandmaster Rovin to wheel around the hill with his mounted regiment and pincer the force, closing the battle and giving a decisive end to a hard-fought war. This would lead to a historical rivalry between populations of Lucienists and followers of the Raevir Orthodoxy for generations. Code and Tenets Tenets Though the origins of the Rhodesian Cross are unknown, it is held as a special symbol of the Order. The arms of the cross represent the four virtues which the order upholds. ☩ Prudence ☩ ☩ Justice ☩ ☩ Fortitude ☩ ☩ Temperance ☩ On those four arms are eight points. The eight points of the cross represent the eight beatitudes which which thou must preserve. ☩ Spiritual Joy ☩ ☩ To Weep Over Thy Sins ☩ ☩ To Love Justice ☩ ☩ To Be Sincere And Pure Of Heart ☩ ☩ To Live Without Malice ☩ ☩ To Humble Thyself To Those Who Injure Thee ☩ ☩ To Be Merciful ☩ ☩ To Suffer Persecution ☩ Originally formed in the continent of Anthos, the descendents of the original Order of Saint Lucien have since carried on the tradition of upholding their ancient code of honor, the Vander Code, throughout various militant incantations. Why do Vanders fight? † To fear the Creator and maintain His Church † † To serve the liege lord in valour and faith † † To refrain from the wanton giving of offence † † To live by honour and for glory † † To despise pecuniary reward † † To obey those placed in authority † † To guard the honour of fellow Vanders † † To keep faith † † To at all times to speak the truth † † To persevere to the end in any enterprise begun † † To never to refuse a challenge from an equal † † To never to turn the back upon a foe † SENIOR COMMAND The organization of the Order is key to a strong military force that can respond at any threat to the Faith immediately. Grand Master Brother Robert Rovin, Bishop of Metz The Grand Master is the leader and penultimate head of Order. The Grand Master wields absolute authority and has full command of the men, running the head commandery. Though keeping most of his legislative work for his priors, all reforms and construction papers need to pass through him. Furthermore, due to the nature of the Order, the Grand Master also acts as the Grand Prior, acting as the spiritual leader and clergy representative. Master Ser Cain de Denesle, Knight of Justice Masters of the Order act as the main commanders and run subsequent separate Commanderies. Wielding the highest authority on the battlefield, only comparable to that of the Grand Master, Masters are expected to have a sharp mind and a swift swinging arm. Masters must also be excellent commanders, required to prove themselves to be honored with such a significant position. Masters act as the administrators of the Command, the right hand men of the Grand Master, and are also charged with administering the Order’s land. Knight Constable Ser Farley Hanethor, Knight of Justice Knight Constables are extremely skilled and experienced knights which are required to be Knights of Justice. These men have full control over all the Knights on the battlefield and are subsequently the Thirds in Command of the Order when engaged in combat. Low Command The lower commanders of the field, these men are tasked with directing the lower ranking men of the Order. They act in the commander of the priories, with the subsequent duty of leading the men of the priory to victory in battle if ever called upon. Low commanders have proven themselves worthy for such positions of honor. Knight Only the best of the order can achieve knighthood. This is an extremely prestigious position and is only afforded to those who’ve shown both diligence and honor in fighting for the Faith. Knights are also given the authority to command any of a lower ranks. Note, the rank of knight generally applies to their level of knighthood in formal situations. For example, a Knight Constable of Justice. Furthermore, Knights act as the bridge between the High Command and Low Command, making them the most involved and trusted rank within the Order. Knight of Justice A knight that has taken the triple vow. A holy vow that is enforced for one’s life. It consists of the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. They don a white mantle with an embroidered Rhodesian cross. Knight of Obedience A knight of noble blood that has taken the oath of obedience. These men are sworn into service for life and are considered full fledged knights of the Order. They may be married. They don a white mantle. Knight of Devotion A knight that does not descend from noble blood but has taken the oath of obedience. If a Knight of Devotion has proven himself then he may be given the option to become a Knight of Justice. They don a white mantle. Sergeant Acting as the chief support officers to the Knights, Sergeants are grizzled veterans who have showcased a long-lasting devotion to the Order. Sergeants are responsible for ensuring that standard troops are well trained, well equipped, and well disciplined. As such, they often times take on additional non-combat roles. Due to their service, Sergeants are the most optimal candidates for knighthood and are often times the most beloved by the lower ranks. Brothers of the Order Average rank-and-file soldiers who form the bulk of the Order. These men are considered the backbone and core. One becomes a Brother of the Order by completing a standard Tour of Service (one saint’s week) and by acquiring approval from a Sergeant. Brothers, upon being initiated, uphold a lifelong vow to the Order, and are required to be devout men of GOD. Initiate The first step in becoming an official brother of the Order. They are only given the lightest armor and are expected to form the ranks on the front lines until they are proven worthy and confess their sins. Special Ranks Special Ranks are assigned to individuals deemed capable of undertaking tasks of responsibility without adding to their rank. Thus, specialist ranks do not neatly fall into any particular level within the chain of command bar that of Squire and Page, and are usually assigned to Sergeants. Medic The Medic is one of the most essential non-combatant roles in the order in regards to ensuring that soldiers remain healthy and among the living. The Medic conducts physicals, treats wounds, and provides remedies to those afflicted with ailments. Medics are trained in the art of wound mending and other variations of health welfare, and thus are to be respected with all matters health related. Conservator Conservators are in charge of making sure their bailiwick gets their supplies to effectively feed and arm their troops. Their task is relatively simple, to work with the main work force and cooks to keep track of general logistics of the order. They also serve as the Heads of Labor, Agriculture and Quartermastery. Squire Squires are young men who are seeking to become fully fledged knights. They are assigned a knight to train under and assist in all tasks, no matter how marginal. These men cannot give orders and are not officially part of the order, unless they take proper oaths. Squires are not accepted out of the blue, though. They are expected to be a relative of a count and must have a letter of recommendation from said count. Page From around the age of 7 to 14, these young boys are beginning their training to become a squire. They generally work as servants until given a knight to train under and official squirehood. These men do not participate in battle. One is required to have noble blood to become a page. Not an official member of the order. Non-Combatant Roles While certainly not as glamorous as life as a soldier on the front lines, they are still as essential to the order as the soldiers are themselves. Often, soldiers will take on these responsibilities in the peacetime, and usually take up quotas to do every month. Training is usually available for men who want to make a profession in certain areas of sell-able skill. Alchemist The Alchemist is one of the most necessary non-combatant roles in the order, second only to that of the Blacksmith. The Alchemist puts important enchantments onto the weapons and armour of the soldiers to assist them in battle. With this, the Alchemist takes on the secondary responsibility as the Order's librarian. He is to make notes of his alchemical experiments and examine and store books in his free time. Blacksmith The Blacksmith is the most necessary position in the order and is required to be nearly self-sufficient. The Blacksmith creates and repairs armour, and often serves as an architect in his spare time. He is knowledgeable of metals and the furnace, and can often create the strongest and most trustworthy metals available. Layman A laborer of the Order, under the ultimate command of the Head of Labor, the Layman acts as the miner, the lumberjack, the farmer, and as any other position needed for the order's success. These men are not usually directly under the order, and usually work for Noble Sers or other landholders affiliated. In the case they are part of the order, they are under the command of the Conservators. Land Organization The Order organizes land in a rather simple manner. Priories hold Commanderies. Commanderies hold Bailiwicks. Priory These are groupings of commanderies into an official area denoting the Order's presence. The Priory is administrated by a Prior and his staff, whom are always clergymen. Usually, Priories are formed to organize further development in the area by the Church. The largest Commandery is usually the seat of a Priory. Commanderies A commandery is a fortress of the order and headed by a master-and-commander. For an undeveloped priory, a small bailiwick might be the central fort. These generally boast a larger garrison, much more well made structure and better living conditions. The purpose of the Commandery is to support the many bailiwicks that are around, and to provide a last line of defense for a Priory that is under invasion. Bailiwicks These are small forts of the Order. To be considered a bailiwick, there needs to be at least one bailiff and a garrison of five men. These are small forts and are granted by local lords wishing to help the cause. Bailiwicks are commanded by bailiffs, the bailiffs shall act as a commander in battle unless merged into a larger army under the command of a commander. Administration The administration of the Order’s worldly Holdings. Commander of the Land Acting as the primary architect and land developer of the Order, The Commander of the Land acts as an assistant to the Grand Master and Masters of the order via construction, the tilling of farms, the upkeep of homes and the maintenance of castles. Commanders of the Land, albeit holding no martial chain of command position, are able to dictate to all those below the rank of Master to aid or to recuse themselves from projects or land development. Prior Once part of the Clergy, the only link to the position of Prior and its name is the task it holds in the order. Priors administrate the various Priories of the order, ensuring fluid communication, recruitment, and other tasks are fulfilled. Though they have no battlefield power, they hold powers of assembly and can enforce the quota demands from the Conservatory. Bailiff These men are the head of their bailiwick and are in command of their garrisons. These men lead their garrisons into battle bravely and are their local leader in everything unless commanded otherwise by a higher rank.
