Let's create a Knightly order pre-endtimes fantasy

https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Empire_Knightly_Order_Creation_Tables

What is the order’s age? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 42 (1d100)

>>45323919
>>
>>45323940
Esteemed: This order’s inception coincided with the rise of Vlad Von Carstein and his heinous progeny. The Vampire Wars exacted a great toll on the armies and spirit of the Empire, but also strengthened the conviction of its people to fight against the dark powers of the world

What is the order’s religious affiliation? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 74 (1d100)

>>45323985
>>
>>45323990
Templars of Myrmidia: This order follows the example of Myrmidia, warrior goddess of strategy, war-craft, and professional soldiery

How strong is the order in terms of manpower? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 24 (1d100)

>>45324007
>>
>>45324033
Small: Around a hundred knights, with both personal and order-retained servants

How is the order’s strength distributed throughout the Empire? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 3 (1d100)

>>45324046
>>
>>45324096
Dispersed: For whatever reason, the order’s knights rarely congregate in groups larger than four or five outside of wartime. The men themselves rarely stay in one place for very long


In which province is the order based? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 39 (1d100)

>>45324138
>>
>>45324155
Ostland

Which knightly virtue does the order hold highest? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 47 (1d100)

>>45324191
>>
Rolled 80 (1d100)

>>45324191
>>
>>45324235
Valor: Never run away, never turn down a chance to fulfill your sworn duties, and never leave a task half-done

What are the order’s favored battle tactics and military doctrines? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 31 (1d100)

>>45324252
>>
>>45324257
Shock and Awe: The essence of knightly warfare can be summed up a single maneuver: the lance charge. It does the most damage, and gets the most work done. The order recognizes this, and tries to allow its knights as many charges as possible

Who was the order’s greatest hero? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 79 (1d100)

>>
Rolled 51 (1d100)

>>45324279
>>
>>45324279
Damn. I was hoping for footslogging. Massed charges seems weird for an Order that's never altogether in one place.

I was also picturing them as Witchers.
>>
>>45324298
A noble preceptor who led the knights under his command to victory against overwhelming odds

How far afield has the order ever traveled for war? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 34 (1d100)

>>45324317
>>
>>45324342
The order has gone to Bretonnia, probably to take part in one of their errantry wars

Who is the order's most trusted ally? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 38 (1d100)

>>45324364
>>
>>45324373
One of the Colleges of Magic

Who is the order's most hated enemy? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 30 (1d100)

>>45324389
>>

Rolled 67 (1d100)

>>45324389
>>
>>45324364
Wait a second. 31-45 is Kislev on the 1d4chan tables.
>>
>>45324413
Sorry my bad, Kislev it is!

>>45324405
A Tomb King

To whom, or what, has the order’s grandmaster pledged its service? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 24 (1d100)

>>45324441
>>
>>45324492
No one. The order does not but as he wills.

How wealthy is the order? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 92 (1d100)

>>45324504
>>
Rolled 82 (1d100)

>>45324504

>>45324441
Wait, if the farthest they've ever gone is Kislev, and they already live in the Northern Empire so that isn't super far, how would they have fought a Tomb King?
>>
>>45324521
We need a re-roll on this once, since we are dispersed we cannot be filthy rich.

>>45324524
Shall we re-roll on the enemy table? What do you guys think?
>>
>>45324567
I'd like to.

Also, if we need a reroll we may as well use >>45324524. Though I do kinda like the idea of each individual knight being so wealthy as to have his own company of men with him. Kinda works with them being devotees of Myrmidia. They show their devotion and study by each knight being a commander in his own right, complete with a small fighting force at all times.
>>
>>45324567
What if the knights made up for their low numbers and spread out nature by employing mercenaries with their vast wealth.
>>
>>45324524
>>45324567
Well obviously, they have something like an artifact or treasure hoard that long ago was stolen from a Tomb King and brought to the Empire. The knights probably don't even know their nemesis yet.
>>
>>45324626
>*angry rattle rattle in the distance*
>>
Rolled 66 (1d100)

>>45324567
Reroll for wealth.
>>

>>45324567
Maybe it's an order of super rich guys who all travel around having their own adventures with their personal retinue of non-knights. While many of them enjoy running around Kislev shanking people, some of them went on a nice vacation down south to do some grave robbing.
>>
>>45324621
Ok, let's go with >>45324524 this result, that makes us just rich. And I like the idea of each knight having his own little band of guys with him

Still got rich anyway >>45324665


Anyway, moving on we can discuss these things later on when we have rolled everything

How prevalent are monstrous mounts (such as demigryphs) within the order? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 92 (1d100)

>>45324688
>>
Rolled 30 (1d100)

>>45324688
Hoping for ubiquitous
>>
>>45324696
Ubiquitous: Every knight in the order rides a monstrous mount

What is the most venerated relic in the order’s possession? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 90 (1d100)

>>45324716
>>
>>45324696
See? These guys are just a bunch of millionaire playboys running around with the finest mounts, armor and personal retinues money can buy. Their Order is more like a gentleman's club where they tell each other tales of their exploits.
>>
>>45324726
A no doubt valuable trophy taken from the order’s enemy

>*more angry rattle rattle in the distace*

With which heraldic sigil does the order represent itself? (1d100)
>>
Rolled 21 (1d100)

>>45324737
A gold coin.
>>
Rolled 87 (1d100)

>>45324737
>>
>>45324732
I'm really liking the sound of this. Do you think they could've learned this from the Kilsev guys?
>>
>>45324748
The Crossed Axes speak to overwhelming strength and a desire for worthy combat

Ok that is all off the tables rolled. Now let's fluff them out!

Things we need:
>Name of the order
>Name of the grand master
>The tomb king
>What the the relic/trophy is
>>
>>45324790
Not a very Myrmidia-like sigil to be honest.
>>
>>45324813
Just imagine the blades of the axes look like owl wings.
>>
>>45324790
>The tomb king
A headless pharaoh who's who communicates through a kind of sign language.

>What the the relic/trophy is
His head, still alive and sassy as hell. The body wants it back.

>>45324813
Desire for a worthy tactical opponent maybe? They're students of battle, so they probably go around styling on most of the chaff in Ostland and Kislev. They're so rich, that ultimately they just play giant games of chess with the enemies of the Empire hoping to find someone as good as them.
>>
>>45324790
>Name of the grand master
Friedrich Geldpfennig.
>>
>>45324790
>>Name of the grand master
Grandmaster Janus
He holds no family name nor House of worth, as he saw fit to forsake those bonds in favor of his Order of Brothers in War.
>>
>>45324790
>>Name of the order
Order of the Screaming Eagle

Since we're in Ostland, we should probably keep the whole Myrmidia thing on the downlow, and just pretend to be a bunch of meatheads with hired mercenaries. Also, we were given this really cool golden staff from a generous benefactor one time.
>>
>>45324946
>>45324968
Fredrich Janus Geldpfennig?

>>45324992
Maybe it was originally 'Order of the Calling Owl,' but they quietly changed the name since it was too Myrmidian.
>>
>>45324312
Me too
>>
>>45325036
>Fredrich Janus Geldpfennig?
.Yes

>Maybe it was originally 'Order of the Calling Owl,' but they quietly changed the name since it was too Myrmidian.
Oh yes!
>>
>>45324860
Are there tables for tomb kings?
>>
>>45325202
As far I know, this is the only Fantasy creation table.
>>
>>45325220
I suppose we should fix that then. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about tomb kings to make a worthwhile table.
>>
Thanks for using my tables op.
>>
>>45325361
It's fun to see tables for Fantasy, a shame there's only yours.
>>
>>45325765
Yeah. Do you have any ideas for another knight table? I still feel like 17 is too few.
>>
>>45325765
>>45326064
What about a regimental table ?
>>
>>45326064
something like greatest victory ?
>>
>>45326170
I feel like that would overlap too much with the greatest hero table, but thanks.
>>
>>45326228
Greatest failure?
>>
>>45326064
Internal Cohesion? How much internal conflict there is in the Order. Are they a well-oiled machine or are they a bunch of feuding glory hounds with corrupt leadership?
>>
>>45326329
>>45326380
Damn, two really good ideas. Nice.

But anyway, let's focus on the Order we have on our hands. Can we agree on this:

Name: Order of the Screaming Eagle
Grandmaster: Freidrich Janus Geldpfennig
Schtick: Closet Myrmydians who ride demigryphs and travel with retinues of lesser soldiers for bloodshits and glorygiggles. Also stole/inherited a Tomb King's (un)living head.
>>
>>45326064
Maybe there can be a table for the order's opinions on other species? From xenophobia to accepting enough that they'd consider letting friendly non-humans in?
>>
>>45326444
Maybe they get hired by petty lords to whip their forces into shape.
>>
>>45326444
I want to figure out what they were doing in Kilsev. Maybe that's where they hid out for a while while undergoing a quiet shift from obvious Myrmidians to closet Myrmidians?
>>
Rolled 12 (1d100)

>>
>>45326581
Presumably what all other Imperial soldiers do in Kislev: fight Chaos. I think the whole going into the closet thing should be the result of a traumatic experience, like their chapter house being burned down by bigoted Ostlanders.
>>
>>45326064
How well liked they are? They might be glorious warriors, but still everyone thinks they're a bunch of dicks.
>>
>>45323919
Rollan.
