Storm Knights Attack Solamnic Villages

Solamnia – A group of former Dark Knights, identifying themselves as the Knights of the Storm, have claimed responsibility for the raiding of the Solamnic villages of Durstan, Raevonford, and Dragon's End within the past month. Approximately 38 deaths and 13 injuries have been reported.

"I counted about 40 or so of these so-called knights," Durstan constable Ravenna uth Brishard said. "While they didn't number many, they were more than a match for my deputies. They're well-trained, too."

Officials from Raevonford have released descriptions of these knights. "From what we can tell, they follow the three-tier orders of the Dark Knights," an unnamed official from Raevonford said. "The Thunder Knights are the infantry and cavalry. Rain Knights are their mystics. The Lightning Knights are their sorcerers. Unlike the other Dark Knights, they seem to dress in blue. While they still have the same basic heraldry of the Dark Knights, it is accented with blue dragons and scale designs. Other designs signifying the storm are also seen."

The Knights of Solamnia have sent a garrison to locate the Knights of the Storm and to eliminate their threat.
