The Empire of Light
Swordsmen of the Vale
The Swordsmen of the Vale is a society built around a monastery and training center for fighters who dedicate themselves to a particular sort of blade and fighting style. It was founded by Endoloran
It’s training combines literary studies with martial and arcane studies. Many of its journeymen become Eldritch Knights, but some remain simply duelists. Study at the monastery, located in the Vale of Endoloran includes thorough training in written Luzwen, and hence its students are drawn, for the greater part, from High Elves. However, the Monastery ways are quite mysterious, and no one quite knows how it decides which students to admit for study. Some students may stand in petition outside its gates for a year or more, whereas others are admitted almost immediately upon their arrival.
