Principles

The Oath of the Order
“To Defend Our Town and The People Who Live Within It.
To Protect Those Who Cannot Protect Themselves.
To Aid Those Who Are In Need, If Their Cause Is Just.
To Serve With Honor, By Example And By Deed. ”

History of the Order

The Order of the Silver Gryphon was founded in the winter of 5095 by a ex-Jantalar knight named Sir Maldon Wellsbourne.

Location

The Holding for the Order of the Silver Gryphon is located in the Lysierian hills above the trails from the Old Mine Road. It was originally an abandoned holding for a Knight from Jantalar named Sir Trevar who was murdered at the location. It was reclaimed by Sir Maldon Wellsbourne and eventually rehabilitated by the members of the Order. It pre-dates MHO structures, but was absorbed into that system when it was implemented and follows similar rules presently.

Meetings

Regular meetings are held on alternate Sundays at 9:00 p.m. EST., at the Order Holding.

Leadership & Structure

The Order has always been lead democratically, but several years later expanded and adopted a Leader with a First and a Council (comprised of 3 members and an alternate) along with castellan, herald, scribe, and master of squires to manage affairs.

Prior to the leader system meetings were chaired for the sake of keeping things on track. Sir Brinn and Dame Deavon filled as co-chairs for the first 3 years of the Orders existence.

Sir Brinn was the first formal leader of the Order although Sir Hyoko was initially elected to the post in 1998/99. Sir Cryheart and Sir Kinshack (2004) are the others to officially serve in this capacity.

Sir Cryheart led the Order from 2005 until 2015. Since that time, Sir Geijon has been the leader.
