May it be known that here is written the Charter of the Order of White Rose, which defines the Order's mission, founding, purposes, principles, objectives, and insignia. In memory of the once-celebrated Empire of the Seven-Pointed Star, this Charter holds as its principles the untiring pursuit of amity and peace, and equality and respect for all.
The Order and its Members will strive, above all, to achieve and maintain peace throughout Elanthia. To that end, the Order seeks:
~ To develop amiable diplomatic relations among the provinces.
~ To offer assistance and support to the peoples of Elanthia during times of need.
~ To provide civic services that encourage the teaching and sharing knowledge of History, Crafting and Triage among Elanthians, regardless of race, ethnicity, occupation, religion, or status.
The Order of the White Rose was initially founded for the purpose of resurrecting the former Empire of the Seven-Pointed Star. Centuries ago, the Empire brought long-lasting peace to the original seven races ~ Dwarf, Elf, Elothean, Gor'Tog, Halfling, Human, and S'Kra Mur ~ by uniting their peoples and their lands under the rule of a single Emperor. The Empire was originally built upon the foundations of peace, equality, respect, and knowledge. It was successful for many generations until it succumbed to forces of corruption and dissension from within. Thus, the Empire of the Seven-Pointed Star became known as the Fallen Empire.
As the Empire neared its end, however, those faithful to its original principles made efforts to ensure the preservation of its most precious documents and treasures in the hope that these relics would one day become useful again. Generations later, the records of these hidden artifacts, rumored to be buried beneath a white rose bush, were sought by the descendants of those loyal few, and the Order of the White Rose was born.
The Order of the White Rose received official sanction, and its Founders, who remained loyal to the ideals of the once-celebrated Empire, sought to bring together the leaders of the provinces in order to ensure that peace and equality endured throughout the continent of Kermoria.
Today, the Order and its Members still recognize the significance of the Empire of the Seven-Pointed Star, not only for its strengths but also for its weaknesses. Corruption eventually undermined the Empire and its goals, and this aspect of its history must never be forgotten.
The Order continues to uphold the principles of peace and equality but also understands that the world has changed: the lands of Kermoria are more diverse than ever, with the addition of the Gnomes, Kaldar, Prydaen, and Rakash and their respective customs and beliefs; the perils now faced by Elanthia are greater than ever before and include the ever-growing threat of Necromancy; and finally, the known lands have expanded considerably, revealing additional territories such as the islands of Qi, which have brought additional opportunities and risks.
The Order, in the midst of these changes, remembers the Empire of the Seven-Pointed Star and holds true to its commitments to peace, equality, and knowledge among the diverse peoples of Elanthia.
~ To maintain amity, peace, and security among the provinces. To that end, the Order seeks to prevent and eliminate threats to the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means the settlement of provincial disputes or situations that might lead to a breach of the peace.
~ To promote friendly relations among the provinces based on the principles of respect and equality, through both diplomatic and civic means, including the sharing and spread of historical, racial, professional, and other knowledge.
~ To foster cooperation among the provinces for the purpose of addressing economic, social, or cultural problems, and to promote respect for the rights of all without regard to race, ethnicity, occupation, religion, or status.
~ To be a balancing force for the provinces and their peoples and a center for all who seek the attainment of these common ends.
- The petals are soft and delicate to the touch reaching out from one another and creating the illusion of outstretched hands waiting to guide and help. Engraved along the points of the platinum star a flowing script surrounds the phrase "Order of the White Rose."
- A white silk rose reads:
- "Olkar Haleen, Blar Fostra, Mivar Feas, Alrar Abues"
