The Order of the Nebula’s Eye, also known as the Knights of the Nebula’s Eye, stands as a beacon of honor and chivalry in the fantastical realm of Sihi. Founded many centuries ago under the noble charge of the High King by Syr Galahad Stormrider, this illustrious knightly order has, throughout its storied existence, been instrumental in preserving peace, upholding justice, and safeguarding the cosmic harmony that binds the realm.

The order’s history extends for over a millennium and as such has many important and incredible periods and events. Here are a few of the most well-known.


During the war against the High King’s father, there were many times when strategy required the defense of an important stronghold while the bulk of the High King’s forces were needed in a separate offense. The most successful of his commanders in this role was Syr Galahad Stormrider, as a result of this he charged Syr Galahad with founding a new order with a focus on holding against sieges for extended periods without external support.

Absence During Dachia

During the Dachia Crisis, the Order of the Nebula’s Eye was contracted to the defense of an asteroid belt-spanning mining facility. As such they were on the other side of the sector during the major actions of the crisis.


At the heart of the Order's noble cause lies a singular mission: to ensure the safety and security of the denizens of the Starlit Court. This mission becomes even more critical during times of interstellar conflicts and cosmic threats. The Knights of the Nebula’s Eye take it upon themselves to defend Sihi from all external and internal forces that may seek to disrupt the delicate cosmic balance upon which the realm thrives.

This code encompasses principles of unwavering honor, steadfast duty, unflinching courage, and selfless dedication. In every action, the knights strive to uphold these values, always striving to be the paragons of justice and fairness, regardless of the challenges they may face.


Leading this storied order is the Grandmaster, a figure of immense respect and skill chosen based on merit and exceptional service to the order. The Grandmaster's leadership ensures that the Knights of the Nebula’s Eye remain unwavering in their dedication to the protection of Sihi and the perpetuation of the order's core values.
