Maybe @JamesGunn can clarify who owns the rights of the rest of the Space Knights. https://twitter.com/_CharlesMurphy/status/1269458075242704902 …
THE WORLD OF HERSTELLER: A Map.
A world filled with stories, host to both bloody history and epic victories.
Region Regalis, the home of chivalry; it's pantheon limited, though just as notorious as the rest. Knights had their origin in this continent.
Luxumbra, the home of hell. Demons are victims of their own hubris, their form dictates by their worst fears.
Lyco, the home of warriors. Previously a powerful empire, now united states; the Warseekers formed the council that now makes up its government. They're accomplished politicians, athletes, and scholars.
Heavenward, the home of progress. Soaring high above the clouds, this landmass isn't a continent, but their ambitions have the size of one. Trying to reach God gave way to attrocity. Disease, social stagnation, birth defects... And a church of purge.
Amon, the home of secrets. Being the closest to the equator, it's lands are scorching deserts, ever dry and dead. Or are they? Who knows what lies beneath.
The Three Empires of Oum, the home of tradition. Stuck in an everlasting dispute; Han-Seong, Guan Xi, and Oum form the three empires. All of them once belonged to the unified empire of Han-Seong, but ideological differences split them, only to have the other two become what they fought against. Nothing would prepare them for the horrors of The Pit, however... Solvognen, the home of sorcery. Once an arctic wasteland, Solvognen was unified by a young woman who would then become it's first ruler: Queen Elysia the Holy. Her divine regalia would eventually become objects of study, and that study, brought about Sorcery. The weaving of one's internal affinity with certain elements.
Now the world stands united, all eyes on one sport: Deathblow. The center of the world gives home to a celebration of all cultures, old and new, in the Deathblow Colosseum.
Tomorrow, in 1329, King Robert the Bruce of Scotland died. After the death of Scotland’s King, King Edward I of England oversaw the dispute for the throne among the Scottish claimants. The Crown of Scotland was conferred on John Balliol over Robert’s grandfather, but the Bruce’s considered John a usurper. Edward of England invaded Scotland in 1296, deposing King John and the Bruce family sided with the English. However, Robert, as Earl of Carrick, joined a rebellion in 1297, but was later forced to capitulate to King Edward. ————————————————————————
When William Wallace resigned as Guardian of Scotland, Robert and John Comyn were made joint Guardians. Comyn was one of the most powerful nobles in the kingdom, and had a real claim to the throne himself. The two despised each other. When they met in 1306 at Greyfriars Monastery, the two came to blows and Robert stabbed and killed Comyn before the high altar, which led to his excommunication. Bruce quickly claimed the throne, and was crowned King of Scots in March of 1306. ————————————————————————
Robert proceeded to wage a guerilla war for independence. For over three years he took back castles and outposts one by one, even raiding into northern England. In 1314, Bruce defeated one of the largest medieval English armies ever assembled at the Battle of Bannockburn. In 1328, King Edward III signed a treaty recognizing Scotland as an independent kingdom with Bruce as king. After becoming sick, Robert the Bruce died and was buried at Dunfermline Abbey, while his heart was kept at Melrose Abbey. ————————————————————————
Robert is considered one of history’s great guerilla leaders and was one of the most famous and skilled warriors of his generation. In his lifetime he was considered one of the three most accomplished knights of Christendom. For leading Scotland in the First War of Scottish Independence and for successfully regaining his country’s freedom, Robert is a national hero. ————————————————————————

I made the mistake of believing this was genuine as well. It seems that journalistew is actually a parody

We knew their plan before they knew their plan. The left sucks at chess. Trump plays 5D chess. They may have little victories here and there--a knight, a bishop, a few pawns--but in the end, they will find themselves in checkmate.

D. João de Coimbra, Infante de Portugal e Príncipe de Antioquia (1431-1457)
Quadro de Rogier van der Weyden
João era filho de D. Pedro, duque de Coimbra, um dos membros da Ínclita Geração. Quando era pequeno seu pai e seu primo, o rei D. Afonso V, entraram em guerra após o duque ter servido como regente durante anos. Seu pai foi morto, e João, ainda criança, foi preso. Foi levado para um exilio na Borgonha, onde sua tia Isabel, a Grande Senhora, era a duquesa. Criado nesta corte, uma das mais brilhantes da Europa na altura, se tornou o homem de confiança do duque. Serviu no Conselho de Estado da Borgonha e ajudou na regência, sendo armado pelo tio como Cavaleiro da Ordem do Tosão de Ouro.
Em meio aos planos de cruzadas contra os turcos em que a Borgonha estava envolvida, foi prometido como esposo a Carlota de Lusignan, princesa herdeira de Chipre. Em 1456 partiu da Borgonha para a longa viagem ao seu novo reino. Em Nicósia se casou-se com Carlota, então com 13 anos, e recebeu o título de Príncipe de Antioquia. Tornou-se regente de Chipre, pois o rei seu sogro estava preso em poder dos turcos. Entretanto, como ele atrapalhava os planos de sua sogra, a rainha Helena, foi envenenado por ela e morreu apenas dois meses após o casamento.
A identidade do jovem no quadro, uma das obras icônicas de Van der Weyden, foi durante séculos questionada (era chamado apenas de Jovem cavaleiro do Tosão de Ouro), até que o atual consenso científico o identificou, com razoável segurança, como o infante português.
I remember when the path was straight.
Clear and not clouded by hate.
When my golden armor still did shine.
Back when my destiny was still mine.
Basking under once clear skies.
Before I heard your unholy cries.
Now part of your ploy.
In your eyes a toy.
The beast I failed to slay.
Requesting a debt I cannot pay.
Souls bound together with one fate to reap.
Dreams merged as we sleep.
Haunted by the day the dragon came.
Drowning my kingdom in flame.
Tarnishing the honor I had.
Driving my mind mad.
Yet I still stand defiant & strong.
A warrior not your puppet to string along.
So watch your words or trapped forever you shall remain.
With no one to break your chain!
Well I am nearing the completion of a big project that i started two years ago. By the end of 2020 i will have completed my 15th Century 1450s Medieval Reenactment gear for a Man-At-Arms during the War of the Roses, one of my favourite periods in history.
This passion-project isn't cheap and I spend way too much money on it, but it makes me happy. Growing up I always tried doing creative things because I found that being creative was the only thing that made me happy.
I don't want a big house, I don't want a fancy car, I don't want a rolex, designer clothes, I don't care for any of that...in fact, the modern world bores me dreadfully.
I have no interest in what the modern world offers, all I want to do is learn more about history by experiencing things for myself as an aspiring Historical Reenactor. Once this pandemic is pver I want to push myself to explore the world of historical reenactment as much as I can because wearing armour, handling weapons, and visiting castles is the only thing that makes me truly content with the world, my world, which I helped create.
I encourage you all to find something that makes you happy and inspires you, and cling into it like your life depends on it!
A small video for the project: "Witches Power"... Средневековье приближается тяжёлой поступью.
Немного дидактики... «Женщина, – писал Марбод Реннский, французский поэт и епископ XII века, – это искусительница, колдунья, змея, чума, хищница, сыпь на теле, яд, палящее пламя, опьяняющий туман».
Аквитанский святой X века, аббат Одо Клюнийский напоминал своим монахам предостережение Иоанна Златоуста касательно женщин: «Телесная красота ограничивается кожей. Если бы мужчины могли заглянуть под кожу, вид женщин вызвал бы у них отвращение… Если нам не нравится прикасаться к плевкам или испражнениям даже кончиками пальцев, какможем желать заключить в объятия мешок навоза?»
