The Order of RoseCroix is a clan based on a Western Europe theme, a combination of England and France, our barracks roam with heavy infantry, trained archers and the most fearsome knights.
The Order of the Rose Croix is one of the oldest clans in the mod, created in 2012 by Datura. The main idea was to create a chivalrous clan, and after many reviving, many leader changes, there are still knights to fight for the two-rosed banner!
After a long and solid rule of Roran, he became too old and wise to control the Order, and therefor gave the leadership to his trusted Weaponmaster, Apophis. Roran, is a Council Member, especially appointed by Apophis.
Grandmaster Apophis is the first Grandmaster to move its quarters to Dhirim, and shall be the only one, until he dies or ascends.
Years after, the Order gets betrayed by it's most loyal soldiers, the Order has fallen. The BitterSteel Company has been created, that had it's glory but has fallen. When the Stormcrows were at their peak, a Serjeant, Aether, decided to revive the old almighty Order with his fellow men-at-arms. This Order will take back the theme of the first Grandmaster, Datura. Almighty, great and honourable. However this Order will remain non-competitive, at least for the upcoming days.
Aether's reign didn't last long, he stepped down for having personal problems with depression and gave the rule to his most trusted friend, Arcan. He will rule the Order until Aether asks for the rule back or the Order vanishes into dark days once again. After a time where the Order gained back his old honour and might, under Arcan's command, the original leader, the man who enstabilished the Order on Calradia for the first time, Datura, is back. Grandmaster Arcann and the whole order decided to give back the throne to the rightful leader, hoping in a future even more brighter than every past one!
Datura's rule lasted shorter than a day, he refused to lead the Order and has left what he has called 'Nothing'. He, Datura, is now the enemy of the Order and shall remain so, for this betrayal shall be remembered forever. Arcan sits back on the throne...his rightful rule is back.
Arcan would however temporarily resign his position taking his leave from the realm, and handing it to fellow Council member Igor. Under Igor's reign however he struggled to keep the order going onwards up till it's nearing end, with time passing on seemly for quite some time, Arcan finally returns to reclaim his former title as Grandmaster, leading the order on for some time, however he'd take another leave from the leadership of the Order.
After years the Order has been awaken again, by the same Grandmaster that put it into a deep sleep, Arcan is back.
With Arcan's return many of his fellow knights mounted on top of their horses once again to ride alongside him.
The knights fought several battles, and slaughtered several enemies, but they were few... Some of them died in battles, some of them retired and the Order was falling again... Arcan and some of his remaining knights was trying to keep the Order alive. Remus would ride around the dual rosed order's towns and villiages in search of new recruits and old faces, whereas he comes across a young man named Eirikr eager to join the orders fold, finally after rounding up the new recruits and old faces, Remus would march to Dhirim, entering the enriched merchant city in search of the long lost orders Grandmaster, unable to find him. Noone knew what happened to him. Days went and the knights decided to start the search for their GrandMaster. After 7 days Tamas found Arcan in Tshibtin. The GrandMaster looked vastly different. He was inflected by a disease. He wasn't able to fight anymore. Tamas who always praised Arcann wanted to keep the GrandMaster in his place, but it didn't work... The Order was near death again, but then the Grandmaster decided the give over the leadership once again. His fellow Weaponmaster Tamas became the new Grandmaster and the Order started to get it's old shape and glory back!
With the newly appointed Grandmaster Tamas alongside his trusted Weaponmaster Erikir they continue to led the clan onwards, while losing many former comrades they continued on recruiting newer fresh blood into their fold.
Years passed since Tamas first sit on the throne, day after day pass as Tamas realises that the age of orders is of no more.
As years pass ushered new advancements in technology while the two-rosed-banner Order held their own way of fighting, due to this the Order failed to triumph in battle against its enemies. Desperate, Grand Master Tamas called in for a council with his Royal Knights to seek a solution.
With the years passing the Order of the RoseCroix became impoverished, the council knew this well and concluded that a major change must be set for their order to survive, thus they sold their many long held lands with the exception of Dhirim the capital of the Order. The Order of RoseCroix no longer a chivalrious knighthood order, now becomes a Mercenary Federation however still bearing their old name, but now live as sellswords for hire, with it's former reputation in winning, the price is high and many pay to guarentee victory, embedding fear into all in the realm of Calradia.
After several won battles and victorious wars the RoseCroix faced its biggest opponent ever, the mercenaries of Genesis. The battle went on for months and the red-rosed knights were close to victory, however have been betrayed! One of their own council members and royal knights, Daisuki handed over the tactics to Genesis, resulting in the once fearsome knights have been defeated. The betrayal left members of the clan feeling bitter or broken thus many parted, some never returned, some only returned for their equipment and horses. Desperate the red rosed council was trying to maintain order amongst their ranks, however the morale of the knights were too low following Daisuki's treasonous action resulting in many of knights deserting in this period of time. Eirikr, who was responsible for the army composition has decided to move to the North and resettle a new camp in a long forgotten place, bringing the core of the RoseCroix army, raising his former Northern banners under the fearsome name Norsemen. Tamas, who lived in Dhirim for countless years now, decided to stay with the remaining knights, and together with the money gathered by the mercenaries, they established a new home on the ashes of the forgotten Order. These old faces from the past now stay as a sleeping giant of Calradia, not engaging in battles, but still being respected all over the continent, with a long forgotten name, The Order Of The RoseCroix.
Due to the absence of these fearsome knights, marauding bandits flooded the once-flourishing area of Dhirim. Tamas saw no other chance, but to notify his long-lost companion Eirikr about the danger reaching Calradia. Eirikr, who has been mercenary since the fall of the Norsemen, came back with a fearful company of elite warriors to defend the Heart of Calradia once again. Therefore the alliance under the double-rosed banner has been formed. From now on, the loyal and chivalrous knights of the Order symbolize glory and support for the population, whilst their paid Executors clear the lands from the remaining threats of Calradia.
