Dragonlance: Age of Mortals
The Knights of Solmania
The Knights of Solamnia stand as the greatest order of chivalry in Ansalon. Founded by Vinas Solamnus in 1775 PC, in response to a vision sent by Paladine, Kiri-Jolith, and Habbakuk, the Knights of Solamnia are dedicated to the protection of Solamnia and Ansalon, service to the gods of Good, and above all to the ideals of honor. While there have been examples of corruption and disgrace among the Solamnic Knights, they have also given rise to some of Ansalon’s greatest heroes, such as Huma Dragonbane, Sturm Brightblade and Quinn Goldenscale.
The Measure divides the Knights of Solamnia into three orders—the Knights of the Crown, the Knights of the Sword, and the Knights of the Rose.
With the departure of the Gods after the Chaos War was concluded The Knights have become the epitome of Goodness in the world. They are leading members of the Whitestone Council (the Council of Leaders who act for the Gods of Light during their absence).
They control much of Solmania and have managed to keep the peace between the different factions while growing in power to rival that of the Council of Darkness in the South.
Several changes have happened to the knights since the War of the Lance and the Chaos War. No longer is there a restriction on entry into the knights based on sex or birthright. A knight’s own merits are used to judge themselves, abandoning traditions based on a person’s birth.
Lord Gunthar Uth Wistan (the Grandmaster during the War of the Lance) spent much of his time as Grandmaster modernizing The measure for the knights to operate in the new Krynn.
The current leadership of the Knights is as follows:
Grandmaster: Sir Tanin Majere
Master of Justice: Lord Quinn Goldenscale
High Clerist: Lady Gabrielle Jhent * (Kiri-Jolith)
High Warrior: Lord Caesar uth Mondar * (Habbakuk)
- These persons also their Gods representative on Krynn during their absence
