Knightly Orders of the Realms

By Eric K. Rodriguez


The Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting provides the widest diversity for DM's and players alike , for establishing a fantasy campaign.  However with this much diversity DM's may find themselves spending more time disigning the world and less time actually playing in it.  Below are a variety of Religious and Knightly orders to help flesh out your campaign and to provide a greater detail for future adventures.  DM's are encouraged to change or alter these order's to fit in their campaign.  A minimum of information has been given so that it will be easy to fit them into a current campaign.  These specific orders shout not be considered as the last say on the subject, and there are a whole range of possibilities for Religious and Knightly Orders of other deities.
