Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.
Your squire secures your Basic Tabard over your armour, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road. The colours upon your tabard are a reminder that you represent a House of Justice.
Criminals be warned.
