The Squire & Aspirant

The Squire/ Aspirant

The youth; valliant and ambitious… And naive.

Ever-seeking the righteous prestige of a full-fledged crusader, the Squire and Aspirant have come to the hamlet to prove themselves as true warriors of the sacred light. Diversely trained, though inexperienced, they will both bring a balance of offense and support to the team.


Both of the same templar order, the Squire and Aspirant found themselves at the bottom of the pecking order amongst the other initiates. Too dedicated to stray from their holy path, but no longer able to tolerate their overbearing templar order, they stole the temple’s most sacred weapons and armor before setting off to find their redemption and personal glory at the hamlet.



The Squire is a lean, short-haired, young man wearing light cloth and leather armor across his torso, with regal full platemail gauntlets and greaves. He wields a prestigious knight’s kite shield and shortsword.


The Aspirant is a young woman with her hair tied back, wearing the ornate torso and pauldrons of a celebrated templar. She wields a holy rounded shield and flanged mace.

Beneath her chestpiece is a long-sleeved tunic, which lays atop simple peasant’s trousers.

-Town Events-

-A Pious Pair-

(Squire and Aspirant can now be found in the Stage Coach. One of each is available.)

Shared struggle may foster kinship, but shared hatred forges bonds.

“Two armoured youths have entered the hamlet today offering help to any, and asking nothing in exchange but food and shelter. Residents are advised to take advantage of this generous offer whilst it remains.”

-The Youth of the Nation-

(1 Squire and 1 Aspirant are available for recruitment)

I still ponder what it is about this dreadful place that draws in those eager to squander the many years they could have otherwise preserved.

“More crusaders-to-be have come to our home for want of honor and glory, offering what aid they can provide to secure a role here in the campaign against darkness.”

-Congregation and Conditioning-

(Idle Squires and Aspirants gain 1 Resolve Level)

Altars and prayers to assure one’s faith. Labor and sparring to improve one’s flesh.

“Those attending the abbey’s regular sermons this week will find irregularly crowded pews, as many of the hamlet’s young souls come together to practice both piety and pugilism.”
