Order of The Dawn

The order of the Dawn is a group of knights that controls Bend Point and was entrusted by Lord Wrieth with sensitive missions like the Kobold crisis. While the Knights are not stationed in one specific town, Lordship over them falls on the ruler of Wrieth though in recent years this has changed and the knights are basicly self governed.
