  • The dwarven knighthood of the Order of the Granite Wall
  • The arcane knights of the Order of the Hawthorn
  • The valorous warriors of the Order of Sir Palastrin
  • The amorous knights of the Order of the Nightingale, dedicated to the beauty of the elven queen
  • The monster-slaying knights of the Order of the Dragonbane
  • The pious knights of the Order of the Sun Goddess

And many more, providing options for every race, class, and background imaginable, including the Dark Knights who serve twisted inversions of the knightly virtues.

Love & War also features rules for participating in tournamentsincluding rules for fighting in the both the melee and the joust. Specialized jousting equipment can aid in the competition, while additional guidelines allow characters to be both sponsor and attend tournaments, too.
