The Plague Knights is a taboo subject in entire Tyrannokar.
Officials insist that they are merely a myth, and such talk will just sprout panic and anarchy. If you are unlucky, you can go as far as be thrown in jail for merely uttering their name.
The legend speaks of an ancient evil that appears in Tyrannokars every 222 years. The first sightings will be few, sparse, and in the outskirts of the country. Eventually the number of Plague Knight will begin to rise, and larger more fearsome raids will be made. First villages, then cities until eventually they reach the capital of Windhook. The city will be burned to the ground, and the knights will disappear without a trace, not showing themselves again for generations and generations to come.
The city has been burned to the ground and thereafter rebuild at least 4 times in recorded history. The official story claims that various groups were responsible, but Plague Knight theorists are not so certain.
The Lord of the Plague Knights
The Plague Knights ultimate leader is said to be the Witch-king, but something is still a mystery.
Plague Knights have reportedly only consisted of evil paladins, which has sprouted the question: Who is the deity that grand them so overwhelming and unstoppable power?
