The Legendary 12
Soldiers of the White Shield
The Soldiers of the White Shield is a training academy that teaches the art of combat. Their base is located in …, but they employ a few traveling masters so that students all over Othyr may benefit from their lessons. If they have the coin, that is. The Soldiers of the White Shield are masters of defense, and are quickly becoming famous for producing reliable guards. They are non-combative by nature but are not afraid of a good fight, preferring to let a foe wear himself out before the real pummeling begins. A dwarven paladin by the name of Nikolai Whiteshield founded the school in preparation for war. Nikolai believed that the peace between the races would not last long. It is said this decision to create the school was divinely inspired. Some lore masters have found scrolls written by Whiteshield predicting various events, including a terrible menace that would someday invade Othyr. The dwarf also predicted that a Soldier of the White Shield would defeat it. However, the Soldiers take these claims in stride and with a hearty laugh. Although their founder has been credited with foreseeing several events in history, most dismiss these predictions as coincidence.
