They are proud and wilful, but they are true-hearted, generous in thought and deed; bold but not cruel; wise but unlearned, writing no books but singing many songs, after the manner of the children of Men before the Dark Years...
Our History: In TA 3016, Edelred of Edelwine signed a decree disbanding the House of Edelwine and instead creating the Esquires of the Riddermark, appointing Eardhelm, Son of Aserid of Rohan, as his successor. There, the two formed two distinct sections to the Esquires of the Riddermark: the Eored of War, led by Edelred of Edelwine, and the Esquire Council, headed by Eardhelm Son of Aserid of Rohan.
The Eored was meant to be the military, protective militia that would prepare all remaining Rohirrim to act as one and hone their tactics, while the Esquire Council was primarily a legislative and adminsitrative body meant to hear matters brought forth by the remaining Rohirrim. Far from home, the Rohirrim needed a strong leadership to guide and organize them for the long journey home.
As of TA 3016, the two continued to prepare for the long journey home.
Who We Are: Hear ye, hear ye! Heed the call, brothers and sisters of Rohan; Esquires of the Riddermark seek Rohirrim who have strayed far and wide from their home to band together and serve the cause of our Homeland; to show their loyalty to the King of Rohan and join the fight to return home and reclaim Rohan from the forces of Darkness that have risen upon it. We offer a home for Rohirrim traveling from the lush fields and and grassy paths of Rohan, a place where tales of the Horse-Lords flow proudly from the tongues of men and women whose pride in Rohan can be heard from their lips and seen in their armors. We fight to return Home, we fight for our King, we fight for our Kind...
