Larmenian Knights

From World of Charun

The Sanctian army consists out of two sections. The main force is the Larmenian Knight Order with the core of knights and commanders of the army. The other force consists out of non-knighted support troops.

The Larmenian Knight Order carries on the heritage of the ancient Narghali knighthood, with its values, virtues and organisation - very similar to the knight order of the fallen realm Stormwood. It was founded, as the nation itself, by Ruxellius de Larmenius.
