Oak Chronicles: Old Enemies, New Friends

On the 8th of February, 1032, the powerful military alliance was concluded between our Order and the Varangian Guard - our good friends who bravely fought pigdogs side by side with us. They are probably the best heavy shock infantry on whole Abella.

Oak Chronicles: The Fall of the Corrupt King

After the last defeat, King Lattimer I of Dunbar decided to not rely on his own inept warriors and let the evil come into his lands - an army of bandits and renegades, lead by Taoyar 'of Verna,' came to fight with the Hammer of Midland at his call. The fool recruited allies, but also acquired many more enemies: the mighty Coalition troops came, too, and smashed the bandits like puppies.

After the victory over Playhard pigdogs, peace was established - only a few bandits continue to plunder peasants, but we hunt them in the forests and the fields to carry out stern but fair judgment. Two most known bandits of Abella, Gremaldo and Kenshin, were beheaded by sir Buraak of the Holy Oak recently.

Using the traitor, bandits attempted to enter the Knight of the Holy Oak garrison, but only death awaited them inside the castle. A few survivors spread false rumors that they destroyed Holy Oak, although everyone can come and sure that it is survived and in perfect order.

Not much RP, but quite funny video about peculiarities of the bandit hunting.

Oak Chronicles: Last fight of Lord Commander

Dear Citizens of Abella,

It is with a heavy heart and extreme grief that I share grave news with you. On March 31st, 1032, Laketown was attacked and infiltrated by a former ally. They opened the gates to the bandits, who pillaged, raped, and looted the city. In an act of extreme defiance, the traitor cut down the mighty Holy Oak.

Lord Commander Barton Schicktenwave led his knights against the bandits, 6 brave souls against an innumerable amount of defilers, who managed to successfully push the bandits out of Laketown, but the damage was done. Unbeknownst to the knights, Lord Barton sustained a terrible wound that slowly began to drain his life. He fought for several weeks while the knights tried to find a cure, but to no avail. He eventually succumbed to his wounds on April 20th, 1032.

As such, there will be many changes occurring at Laketown over the coming days. Captain Bismarck de Guilford (Lazerah/Alex#7130) will take over as Lord Commander of the Knight Order of the Holy Oak. Dame Freyah Michaelson (Kol#8639) has taken over diplomacy duties from Lady Meerah Nic Roibin.

We want to thank every one of our allies for every ounce of support they could muster. Friends, it has been our greatest pleasure serving you, and we hope to continue going strong towards the future.

Always your humble servant,

The Knights of the Holy Oak

Oak Chronicles: Something Ends, Something Begins

Image

The city of Verna was founded in 1030 by small group of survivors – led by one of the first people on Abella, Dhollansa Stark. It grew and prospered, till one day Dhollansa mysteriously disappeared. Then Tashka Zelena, a peasant woman who served Dhollansa, suddenly usurped authority in her dirty hands and proclaimed herself the Shadow Queen. She led people to the south to fight on the side of the pigdogs during Great World War. Although many obeyed her out of fear, one of the Nothern lords, Nazeef The Teetotaler, Dhollansa's kinsman, found the strength to rebel and went to the service of Lord Barton together with his men. They became glorious knights of the Holy Oak and started fighting on the other side, proclaiming Nazeef as the rightful ruler of Verna.

In 1032, the war was won by the Coalition of Free People of Abella; for the most part, the pigdogs were hunted down and defeated. Although the victory had cost the life of Lord Barton, Lord Stark had better luck - after the Shadow Queen was expelled from the North, he went there and took the city of Verna back under his rule. In the ruins, he met his old friend Crixius "The Jester" Barefoot – a man of complicated destiny, too weird to live, and too rare to die. Even though Crixius's participation in the Great World War had been to betray both Shadow Queen and Lord Barton, for some reason Nazeef believed he wouldn’t do the same with the man Crixius was linked with by a common past. But life is feudal, and instead of helping with Verna's restoration, The Jester betrayed him, stole his gold and spent it to build his own city - Riva, the weird and soulless copy of Laketown. Moreover, Holy Oak scouts spotted Tjoerk Blaublut there - Crixius was the one who provided shelter to the most wanted (and most despicable) criminal in all of Abella.

Befallen by deep sorrow, Nazeef went to the mountains to find reason to continue his fight. This time, he was lucky once again, because he suddenly found his dear Dhollansa herself! The details of her disappearance and locating remain secret, but today they happily rule in Verna - or rather look after architectural and historical monument, spending their time in former Tashka's town hall, which became The Tavern of Broken Dreams - one of the most hospitable places of Abella. Verna became a Holy Oak vassal and the sacred sprout of the Holy Tree grew there.

This ends the story of Nazeef, but another story begins - a story which won’t end as long as both traitors are still alive.

Oak Chronicles: Fires of Hope

After the treacherous attack against Order's sacred tree, something Evil came into the world and people began to die by the thousands, getting covered in black marks. The mysterious disease was known as the Black Death, it wiped out whole villages and the kingdoms of Abella were ultimately helpless as the infection rapidly spread. However, some people for some reason were immune - they got together and built new cities on the ruins of the Old World.

As for the Order, after Barton's death four knights were sent to four world's edges to find a cure for the Black Death, but none of them made it back. Lord Commanders died one by one until authority has concentrated in hands of young sir Zorand Rahl - warfare engineer who destroyed Playhard castle in the old days. Since the village on the strategically important island to the south of Laketown was destroyed, it was decided to take this island under control - so rose the Free City of Oakenhold, managed by Lady Mayor Sunada Chishio.

Frustrated in their attempt to find a cure, surviving knights focused on helping other survivors - by the explicit order of Lord Commander, the city of Oaksprout opened it's gates to every survivor who needs a new home. All kinds of people from different parts of Abella came to make new lives under the protection of Holy Oak. Signal bonfires of new hope burn every night.

Oak Chronicles: Chasing Two Northerners

The conflict with Riva was long but meaningless - although Crixius paid his price, the main sworn enemy of the Holy Oak, Tjoerk Blaublut, managed to vanish right under knights' noses like a magic trick.

While scouts continue to retrace Blaublut's footsteps, on the 10th of December, 1033, Lord Commander Zorand Rahl and Riva council signed the peace agreement on the neutral ground of the Klippenwacht city.

Seraphima Greenfire of Verna's speech:
"Hear me, people of the North!
We, Lord Commander Rahl of the Holy Oak and me, his vassal, madame Greenfire of Verna came here to witness that conflict between Holy Oak and Riva is finally over. Lord Stark of Verna started this war because of gold and at least one poor Rivian peasant, and a Holy Oak horse fell in it. While we were busy with debt collection, Tjoerk the Traitor slipped through our fingers, which is a great shame for our Order!
We have nothing against good people of Riva and since there is no Tjoerk in the North, no more blood will spilt on these lands!
Me, as a chronicler and cartographer of our Order, already marked Riva as a peaceful village instead of a bandit nest. I'd also like to give this legendary Axe of War, forged by Grandmaster Nazeef to Lundt of Klippenwacht - please bury it deep.
I hope one day our wounds will be healed, and we will become trade partners. For now, I'd like to wish you the best of luck with your great bridge project!"

Greetings!

Sorry that we fail to meet your expectation.
Still, in order to leave any guild, you can pick the easy way or the hard way.
The easy way: say that for some reason you don't feel comfortable, get some stuff to get going and ride freely to all four corners of Abella.
The hard way: leave Discord without saying anything.
Since you chose the hard way, deleted whole conversation with Senior Knight who recruited you and all the tools went missing the same day, you have no reason to complain.

Sincerely yours, madame Greenfire of Verna, Senior Knight of the Holy Oak Order.

Oak Chronicles: Veni, Vedi, Vici


On the 29th of December, 1033, The Holy Oak Order received information about northern pagans planning to perform their unspeakable rite in honor of Jodenande - The Maiden of Death. It was decided to stop it in the only accessible way – send a knight to kill every Death Maiden adept.

While the mission was successfully accomplished (only two Klippenwacht Arena fighters knew how to handle a sword properly), Jodenande priests tells everyone that motives of the Champion don’t matter at all – death is death anyway… So our knight just had to shrug and take loot. Two mighty artefacts – Death Maiden’s blessed blade and Lundt Klippenwachter’s Fur Hat of Eternal Warm were added to Order’s treasury as well.

If you need perfect armor and sword - come to our Order; we will provide you best examples of blacksmithing, if you have enough coins, of course.

Oak Chronicles: The Golden Thread

Life's a wheel, nothing more, it goes round and around. Sometimes before we can usher in the new, the old must be put to rest: at least three cities around Holy Oak realm has been destroyed by the Black Death in recent years, but now Oaksprout survivors took them under control. Fields are being cultivated and swords to protect them are being forged again.

The greatest acquisition was Ravenhold Castle: it was awarded to Lord Commander Zorand Rahl by the last will of dying Lord Mojay Ruffpuff which was witnessed by his right hand Bumle Lodbrok. Ravenhold's gate is now open for everyone who isn't a bandit while the road and the bridge are being rehabilitated. Having Oakenhold on the South and Ravenhold on the North secured, Knights now control the main trade route on Abella.

We hire road builders to execute important mission of main Abella trade route reconstruction - fair wages for fair work!

Oak Chronicles: Lord Commander Duckhelm Greenfire

In the 9th of May, 1034, Lord Rahl retired to castle Ravenhold where his siblings will take care of him, since his memory loss is getting more and more severe. He is having trouble remembering names and events that has happened in his time in Holy Oak.

He was a young man when most Holy Oak knights were killed by the Black Death, but he found the strength to save the Order instead of running to the South like some others did. During his rule the Order greatly expanded and took the main trade road in the world under control.

Lord Duckhelm Greenfire of Verna, brother of Nazeef Stark and the Great World War Veteran, became Lord Commander of the Holy Oak.

Oak Chronicles: The Strange Story of Yerlan Castan III

Our Order was created a long time ago on the distant island of Kortalia, and the legendary blade wielded by Lord Commander Schicktenwave II, slayer of the great Beast of Kortalia, is rumored to be sunken at the bottom of the blessed lake during the great apocalypse.

In 1030, Order's Captain and creator of the Knight Code, Lord Yerlan Castan III, set sail in search of this artifact. Subsequently, he wasn't heard from for nearly two years; in 1032 Sir Gauvain de Rufio has gone to travel in search of the loyal captain.

In some rainy day of 1034, mysterious naked man suddenly appeared near the Holy Oak castle. He hurried to the Lord Commander's Chamber and started raving in a loud and disturbed manner, rambling about Judy while also insisting that she not be discussed, and referring at one stage to Lady Dhollansa Stark and yelling “Who do you think this is, there?". The oldest knights recognized him as Lord Yerlan; he went on to narrate in an abstract fashion where he had been since his disappearance, discussing a discovery "in Eternal Autumn", a meeting he witnessed above a tavern, and an important ring. He had vanished just as suddenly as appeared without attempting to answer any of the questions about his mission or Sir de Rufio.

Knights are still wondering was it Lord Yerlan for real or not, but one thing is clear: there's nothing natural about this.
