“I’ll make a Knight out of you yet Squire! And a Squire out of you too Page!
—Head Knight Instructor

Knights Proving Ground is an exterior map of a large enclosed courtyard where there are several areas set up for training knights including archery targets, standing training dummies, and two sandy octagonal arenas for duels.

Knights Proving Ground is intended for use in fantasy or medieval games.

Adventure hook for use with this map

Pride of the Red Lion Academy: The Red Lion Academy teaches squires and pages in classrooms about weapons, armor, horses, military history and heraldry. The Red Lion Academy isn’t just about scholarly work however as they have a huge courtyard for squires and pages to practice under knight instructors in the ways of archery, fencing, dueling, and riding.

The final exam every year is a mock attack on the academy which the graduating class must repel. When the mock attack begins this time however, students are slain by real weapons. Someone has replaced the Head Knight Instructor’s mock attack team with knights armed to the teeth! Can the Player Characters survive the attack armed with mere practice weapons against fully trained knights?

What happened to the Head Knight Instructor’s mock battle team? Kidnapped? Knocked Out? Dead?

Who is responsible for this attack? An enemy kingdom replacing the mock attack with a very real ambush? A rival academy that believes real teaching requires spilling actual blood on the field and is here to teach them a lesson about war?

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
