Oak Chronicles: The Great Exodus

In 1036, some kind of cataclysm did what The Black Death could not and killed mosty everyone by destroying the very fabric of the world. For some mystic reason Lord Commander Duckhelm came round just before it happened and ordered to evacuate the city - set sail from Oakenhold. This order was quite insane, but no one dared question it.

It was a long sea voyage to an unknown destination, food reserves ran dry quick and some people didn't make it. When hope deserted them and they were getting ready to do they finally saw some unknown land. Thus ended story of Order adventures on Epleland, but another story started - Godenland story.

Oak Chronicles: In The Army Now

Upon arrival to the New World, knights settled on the North, where they became good friends with former owners of Avalon - the noble alliance of The Fearless Army. Although the Order kept it's insignia, from that day their coat of arms was painted into red.

Oak Chronicles: The Schism

Whispers arose of Lord Barton's surviving bastard son and his mysterious monastery where people worship a Rose and have orgies, not so far from the Holy Oak camp. Few Senior Knights went to investigate these rumors, but they never came back: turned out they broke their vows and joined this cult themselves.

From then on the noble organisation of Holy Oak was divided into two sides: Oak side, which remain loyal to Lord Commander Greenfire and the Holy Oak, and Rose side, which pledged to Barton the Bastard and was forced to leave the North. They went to the distant western island and continued their dark rituals.

A long time ago, in distant lands of Kortalia there was a large battle and rivers of blood. One surviving knight, heavily wounded, had to crawl to an oak tree near a lake, and suddenly he heard a voice. A Lady appeared from the oak tree by the lake and told him about the strife between Order and Chaos in the world, events of the past and the future, and his purpose. His wounds were magically healed and he gained supernatural strength. In years to come, that knight did many heroic deeds and became known as King Barton I, Great Uniter of lands and the founder of our brotherhood, the Knight Order of the Holy Oak.

Since then our mission has been to protect the World Tree, because as long as it stands, there is no true death: after destruction of bodies sparks of mortals (souls) simply circulate between worlds. However, if the Sleeper awakes and cuts the World Tree down, the entire world will tumble into darkness. That is why we fight the Sleeper’s adepts, Chaos worshippers, and always support the Order: large and well organized powers that abide to the laws of the land; however, we will never support tyrants.

The Lady of the Lake taught young Sir Barton four Commandments to live by, and these teachings lived through generations in the Barton family while they lead the Knights of the Holy Oak. After Lord Barton III’s spark passed on to another world from Abella, Lord Greenfire recorded the words into this Book to preserve the moral legacy to generations to come.

Oak Chronicles: First Steps on the New Land

When the great fire consumed the earth, those who survived set out across ruins of the old world to build new societies, establish new villages, forming tribes.

As decades passed, what had been Avalon united beneath the flag of The Fearless Army (TFA), dedicated to values of honor and the rule of law. As The Fearless Army grew, so did its needs. Scouts spread all around the merciless expanse of Godenland seeking territory and wealth. They returned with tales of a land untouched by the cataclysm that had scorched the rest of the world.

So TFA mobilized and sent settlers north to occupy Smalbucht and its neigbouring regions. But across the mountains, another society had arisen under a different flag. A vast army of slaves, forged from the conquest of 86 tribes: "United Nations of Godenland" and their vassals "Ashenfell" and "Toxic Land". Across the mountains, it gathers strength. Campfires burned, training drums beat.

However for now, while presenting themselves as great warriors, they mostly avoid fair fights and prefer "hit and run" tactics. Enjoy our funny videos about this situation!

The Holy Tales Vol.1
Holy Oak Knight

Till Morrow when the sweat covers thy boddie,
Until when fright takes cloak within your chambers,
That shed of yours, made of materials,shoddy.
We remember carefully whom are our neigbours.

For ours is a Kingdom most bright,
Where through and within comes the strongest light,
Care not for thy safety,
Humble, honorable knight.

In battle we prove our valor,
Thy wepon which does't touch our armor,
So foolishly forged using feeble iron,
There is no place for you inside our zion.

Your nobilytee are sugary princes,
For their grip are as durable as rice,
Your kingdom be filled with filthy mice.

Our brothers and sisters hold their titles proud,
For we are protected by a blessed shroud,
Our warcry be strong and loud,
And our enemies be looked down upon,
From that rainy stormy cloud.

But even in times of darkness,
When our enemies attack in plain sight,
Remember dear brothers and sisters;
We are a Holy Oak Knight!

Year of the Tree 1036, 25th Solar rotation of the Early Winter (2nd of November). We've been thru big fights with wildlings and wild animals but at the end we got control over the Tettennacht (Native name, as it's called by the homelander) province. We will start slowly to turn the province into a Holy Land for the will of the Tree.

Indeed; blue alliance, purple alliance, black alliance, white allliance, a seven nation army couldn't hold The Fearless Army and this is great honor to fight side by side in our Family.

November, year of the Tree 1036 - a lot of refugees from United Kingdom of Wessex and Mercia arrived to lands of the Holy Oak, fleeing brutal nomad attacks on the South. They were warmly received by oaklanders and were given a fief to establish a vassal village by the will of Lord Commander Duckhelm Greenfire. Unfortunately, their journey was long and the northern climate is harsh, so most of them fell gravely ill. The situation was further complicated by wrong treatment by a mad druid - when the word got out about his inhuman experiments it was too late and most of the southerners were dead or standing on the edge of sanity.

What was left of those refugees divided into two groups: some of them became New Oaksprout villagers, while others stole all belongings of the first group and moved to the border of the realm, where they tried to establish a village again. Still being vassalized, they acted secretive and sneaky, until Lord Commander himself found their village abandoned with gates wide open. The Order launched a rescue operation, but the only living soul they found was a dirty peasant crawling out of manure, drunk as a skunk, who then began to accuse them of stealing! During investigation it turned out he was a husband of the village headwoman who had gone off into the woods with a druid and other villagers to <illegible>.

As soon as Knights were confident of areas security again, they gave all confiscated loot back to the villagers and booted the lunatics to another suzerain.
