Order of Arkay/Knights of the Circle

    So the main goal of this topic is to gain some info on the orders of knights in Breton society. Specifically, The Knight's of the Circle, belonging to the order of Arkay. I am quite intrigued by Highrocks feudal society and am wanting to incorporate some Knightly lore into the backstory of character I am creating.

    I've done a bit of searching around the net and have found a very scarce amount of info on the Order of Arkay and their Knights. All I've found is a very brief bit of info on UESP, talking about the Order of Arkay as they appeared in Daggerfall.

    A few questions then

    • Is this order still active during the event's of Elder Scroll's V? Or has since been disbanded?.
    • Do they seek out and hunt down necromancer's and undead?
    • Do they only allow person's with specific set of skills and trait's to join (Of noble birth, Knowledge of restoration magicks etc)?
    • What part of Highrock are they based?

    Any knowledge that you guys could offer would be a great help, thank's in advance!

    There is this (Uesp on Bretons) 

    "Though they have several paths to prosperity, becoming a nobleman by performing quests and services to curry favor with various rulers is considered the best way, which has created a cultural "quest obsession" among young Bretons. "

    In this case it would be within the greater "obsession" of Akay.


    On the Order of Akay it gives the (pick two) skills necessary for advancement too, ie axe, Backstabbing Daedric Destruction Medical Restoration Short Blade.

    Thank's for the reply Mook. Hmm well that explains why Breton's are obsessed with questing for magical artifact's, like the Grail of betony (Insert Monte Python Refernce) lol.

    As for the skills, a Night Blade would seem to fit into the order quite well then.

    lol's that made me crack up haha.

    I've one more question if anyone can answer it.  What is the current status of Wayrest. After it was sacked during the corsiar invasion 4E 188 did the nobility or the Stormhaven royal leader repair it? If so how long?
