Guardians of knowledge
The Silver Shield Order, was founded circa 432 of our era in Northern Europe, to preserve the cultural understanding of Nordic explorers and warriors. All of them, inheriting of the Aesir, and protectors from Yggdrasil. Although it is formed by soldier monks, their ideals are very similar to the HCS´s ones, based in education and wisdom. With very few members, but strongly mighty, the Silver Shield faction has got to survive and reject the forces of evil thousands of times, through the domain of the sacred power given by their deities, and the extreme climate of their lands, to which they are used to.
Frozen elves, wolves and giant champions with sacred abilities swell, in essence, their ranks.
