The Knights of the Tarnished Dagger are an organization of NPC creatures with a strong vendetta and desire to destroy the Platinum Dragon god. They are a cadre of demon-like beings who seek mortal hosts and through the offer of power would slowly coax them under their control eventually subsuming their host's personality completely.

Ak'dur, Ritualscribed Warrior is a creature now made of raw magic who grants his host access to an array of magical abilities that far outstrip the mere parlor tricks of his fellow Knights. This also includes the only member of the Order who was not corrupted by the shard of evil, Xergel, Uncorrupted Radiance. Xergel was once the leader of the Knights of the Platinum Dagger and when the shard of evil struck them all, he was trapped in his blade, like his friends, but was otherwise unaffected. He blames himself for what happened to his allies and to this day seeks their final redemption as penance for his sins.
The compilation document of the Knights depicted at this time is kept here on a separate page. This project is the fruit of well over a year of thinking and dreaming about what I could do with 4th Edition and now in the twilight of 4E, I'm glad I was finally able to put this out there. I hope that it has inspired you, or at least entertained you for a bit, it has been a blast to write and is going to hold a special place in a campaign coming soon.
