Atop the Shoulders of Giants
The Shadow Knights are a rumored organization that most people accept is quite true and quite real despite a nearly complete lack of evidence. Rumor has it that Shadow Knights are a group of “Day and Night” Lansi worshipers who have their base of operation near the Capitol City in Golir who have sworn to do anonymous acts of good, preserve knowledge, and remain vigilant for extra-planar threats. Thus whenever a criminal is captured under suspicious circumstances, whenever a fire gets out of control near a library and the books go mysteriously unharmed, or whenever rumors of possible demonic invasion begin spreading around people often claim that the explanation is that Shadow Knights were involved. There is even a rumor that the Shadow Knights keep a massive under-ground library beneath almost every major city where they archive copies of almost every book ever written, and that printers in places like Lalsim, Capitol City, and Dragon’s Throne often come to their shop early in the morning to find their presses have been used during the night.
The only thing that is relatively well known about the rumored Shadow Knights that is rarely disputed is that the organization’s founder was the same Nada’Athi assassin who converted to the worship of the Lansi and founded the Day and Night sect shortly after the conclusion of the Planar War.
