Tales from Ioth: Heroes of the Shards
The Order of the Golden Scale
The Order of the Golden Scale is an order of knights, paladins, and magic-users (both divine and arcane) who have sworn to eliminate evil in all its form, particularly evil dragons.
Originally the Order of the Golden Sun, a devote order of paladins and clerics of Orn, the Order was reformed into its current state at the end of the Frost War. The Order suffered heavy losses during the war, and needed to make up its numbers. It was suggested by one of their dragon allies that the Order open its ranks to anyone wishing to defend their homes against the evils of the world, regardless of their religious devotion. Knights and wizards who had fought side by side with paladins and clerics now joined forces once again in the newly named Order of the Golden Scale.
