Knightly Distrinctions and Historical Designations

Distinctions of Knighthood

Eddric says, "At this time Baron Malwind has an issue to address to those knights who received their spurs at his hand over the past several years."

Dunrith says, "I would like to make clear that there is a distinction between those who have received their spurs at my hand versus those who have received them more recently by Earl Eddric."

Dunrith says, "The distinction matters for several reasons. Perhaps the foremost is that those knighted by myself were not sworn in any way to honor or defend the Empire."

Dunrith says, "But in foregoing that obligation, you also forego some status."

Dunrith says, "So those who were knighted by my hand, as knight errants - and who have chosen to maintain that status - at this time and during the upcoming month have the option of also taking the oath that Earl Eddric offers and so take on both the obligation to support the Empire and to be recognized as knights of it."

Eddric says, "By way of a related honor, I would like to announce the elevation of Sirs Brinn, Sir Eahlstan and the soon-to-be Knight-Errant Sir Valicar. As recognized leaders who have been steadfast in providing direction and example to those who look to them in times of conflict, I hereby bestow on them the right to bear banners bearing their own charges and lead followers under those banners into the field of battle. "

Eddric says, "For those who may be unaccustomed to the term, such a knight is considered to be a Knight-banneret rather than a Knight-Errant." Brinn bows to Eddric.

Eddric says, "Please provide Baron Malwind with the necessary design information when you have had time to consider it."
