Thorne's will must be served. A Knight must adhere to the code at all costs.
2. Protect thy charges with vigilance and courage.
A Knight of Thorne must place the life of those he protects above his own. If the Knight fails to protect his charge, he must then avenge his charge. A knight cannot knowingly allow any permanent harm to come to either his charge or another Knight of Thorne.
3. Provide thy charge the guidance of Thorne
A Knight of Thorne surrenders his life to the service of the one he
chooses as his Charge. Acting as both advisor and teacher, the Knight's duty is to guide the Charge to a deeper understanding of the arcane.
4. Honor shall rule your life.
A Knight of Thorne shall live an honorable life. A dishonorable act dishonors Thorne. A
Knight of Thorne shall never attack an innocent. A Knight of Thorne shall never lie to his charge or a fellow Knight. Challenging an enemy is to engage in honorable combat. No assistance will be rendered for either combatant. If thy combatant does not agree to the terms then they are to be vanquished by any means necessary. If at any time during combat thy enemy breaks the code of the challenge then you are no longer bound to follow it.
5. Thou shall not suffer the dishonorable to live.
A Knight of
Thorne shall not allow those who have wronged him to live. If a Knight's Chosen betrays him, then the chosen shall be destroyed at all cost. Those who harm a Knight of Thorne become the enemy of ALL Knights of Thorne.
6. Those who threaten Thorne must suffer thy wrath.
Thorne has many enemies. The Fallen and the enemy T'loric Priests must be destroyed wherever they are encountered. Under no circumstances may a Knight of Thorne allow one of these individuals to escape.
7. Thou shall not chose to serve another's mage.
Each Knight of Thorne
chooses his own Mage to serve. Under no circumstances may two Knights chose to serve the same mage. Allied mages may each have a Knight of Thorne chose them but the Knight owes
allegiance to only one mage. If a Knight of Thorne discovers that a mage that he serves has the service of another Knight of Thorne, he must leave that mage. Errant Knights may apprentice under an established Knight of Thorne. In this case, they are not serving a mage but are server another of their kind.
A Knight errant must leave the apprenticeship of their mentor as soon as they have found a suitable Charge.
