Order of the Gauntlet

Many paladins and clerics of Tyr, Helm, Torm, and Hoar have joined the organization, seeing it as—finally!—a way of making common cause against the evils abroad in the world. The Order of the Gauntlet is ready to lash out the moment evil acts, and not a moment before. When evil breaks laws, agreements, or commonly accepted codes of conduct, the Gauntlet strikes hard and fast, without waiting for the blessings of distant temples or the permission of rulers. Evil must be met in the field and smashed, or it will swiftly overcome all.

The Order of the Gauntlet is a dedicated, tightly knit group of like-minded individuals driven by religious zeal or a finely honed sense of justice. Friendship and camaraderie are important to members of the Order of the Gauntlet, and they share a trust and a bond normally reserved for siblings. Like highly motivated soldiers, members of the Order of the Gauntlet seek to become the best at what they do and look forward to testing their mettle. There are few, if any, “lone wolves” in this organization.

  3. Punishing an evil act is just. Punishing an evil thought is not.

This means identifying evil threats such as secretive power groups and inherently evil creatures, watching over them, and being ready to attack the moment they misbehave. (These are always retributive strikes, never preemptive.)

Several of the Heroes of the Four Elements were members of the Order of the Gauntlet: Ludren, and Heeskin, and with the aid of the prestigious faction, they were able to root out ex-Gauntlet leaders within the Elemental Cults

  After the vanquishing of Yan-Ci-Bin the Order was led into a sort of rennisance as there popularity flourished. 

 This came to an end with the disappearance of Ludren four, and the departure of Heeskin as he formed the Heeskin Seven. Times only grew tougher as generations grew content with their position and any lack of true threats to the realm led the Order to more-so focus on different realms such as the Moon-sea.
