The Knights of Samular, also known as the Holy Order of the Knights of Samular, were an order of paladins in the service of Tyr, beginning in the 10th century DR,[2][3] who focused on the supremacy of law.[4] They were a well-respected order in the Northlands,[citation needed] with their main base of operations of Summit Hall in the Dessarin Valley, which was supplemented by the Halls of Justice in Waterdeep.[5]

Membership[edit | edit source]

Admittance into the order was open to all men of the Realms, provided they completed a quest and undertook an oath to serve the Maimed God.[5]

History[edit | edit source]

Formed in 952 DR after the Second Troll War, the Knights of Samular traced their roots to three brothers who became champions of the war, Samular Caradoon, Renwick Caradoon, and Amphail the Just. While successfully stopping the siege of trolls through the use of the Rings of Samular and the magical siege engine known as the Kezefbane, Amphail and Renwick were killed around the end of the war[2] (though the latter would become an archlich entombed at the Sumber Hills). The invading trolls were eventually routed by Samular and his growing group of Tyrran paladins. These knights would eventually come to be known as the Knights of Samular.[5]

After routing the warlord Brunyundar Margaster from the keep, the knights made Thornhold as their chapterhouse.[5] The Knights lost their headquarters to the Zhentarim thanks to the treachery of Dag Zoreth. The keep was then confiscated by Bronwyn Caradoon, who took up residence with her niece. This resulted in a breakdown of relations between the Knights of Samular and the Harpers.[citation needed]

After their initial loss of the keep, the Knights of Samular relocated to Summit Hall and kept a force within the Halls of Justice in the city of Waterdeep.[5]
