Pugnacious Knights

This benefit represents the ideals of the dark age knighthood, during the days before Chivalry became recognized as the model for knights to aspire to. Prince Madoc is the paragon of the Pugnacious Knight archetype.

The pugnacious knight is brave (Valorous), even foolhardy (Reckless). He knows there is nothing more important than his good name (Proud), avenging slights against it (Vengeful). Pugnacious knights uphold the practice of largesse (Generosity) and expect others to keep their word (Trusting), while knowing that above all else, might makes right (Arbitrary).

A knight requires 80 points from Vengeful, Generous, Proud, Reckless, Trusting and Valorous. Since a pugnacious knight is capable of dictating his own rules, he can use his Arbitrary score in place the lowest of these traits.

Benefit: +1d6 points of damage.
Glory: 100 glory per year.

Pugnacious knights cannot also be Chivalrous. When Chivalry becomes renowned, holding to this ideal identifies you as an honourable-but-villainous knight. Others see such knights as traditionalists who reject King Arthur’s new laws.
