Amara Fireheart, Cereus Diviciacus Quinn-Malum, Adam Divisav, and Gell Hammerfist accompanied Queen Astrid to the Elflands for the massive funeral in other of the recently deceased Emperor Polonius III
Polonius III's funeral was interrupted by a terrorist attack organized by an anti-imperialist group known as the Characters. The Royal Knights Brigade managed to capture or kill many of the conspirators, and they were tasked by Empress Ophelia of the Elflands to investigate the organization further.
The Royal Knights Brigade began traveling to the halfling city of Noggin, rumored to be the headquarters of the Characters movement. Along the way Cereus got attacked by a merfolk and Amara got into a fight with some Elflands guards, forcing them to leave the village in a hurry.
Once in Noggin, the Royal Knights Brigade met a halfling woman named Cassandra Gaspard who granted them an audience with the group's leadership. Queen Astrid allowed the RKB to join the Characters to investigate their true motives, a decision that would have world-shaking effects.
The Royal Knights Brigade began undertaking missions for the Characters, murdering members of the Elflands' Avon royal family like the young Duke Corialanus in Noggin. Their next assignment took them back to Kassadeia to kill Beatrice and Benedict Avon, two siblings who had locked themselves inside the Imperial Library investigating rumors of a monstrous deity known as the Sunken God. They were dispatched easily by the RKB, but the party grew suspicious of the rising threat that this Sunken God posed. They had been attacked by sahuagin on their way to Kassadeia, and the writings they found in the locked study proved ominous and disturbing.
The Royal Knights Brigade traveled next to the Sardivelian trading post of Silvio to kill Lord Gremio Avon, a member of the royal family who was amassing forces to tamp down on unrest and protests within the Elflands. Traveling through the gnomish territory of Galway the party ran into Arvyll, a god of time who had allied himself with Fairouz and the Coven during the Fairouz Terror of the 870's. Weakend after decades of disgrace and condemnation, the party managed to kill him and reverse the aging curses he had inflicted on people like Roland Fireheart.
The party plotted out a way to kill Lord Gremio Avon in the Sardivelian trading post of Silvio. Veridan, a half-elf bard performing at the tavern where the fight occurred, joined the party and the Character's effort to overthrow the Elflands Empire. This led to a party meeting with The Mariner, the mysterious founder of the Characters movement.
The Royal Knights Brigade inadvertently began the Character Revolution in the kuo-toa city of Oridelfa that would topple the 4,000-year-old Elflands Empire in a matter of months. The Empress' brother Laertes was sent in to quell the revolts, but he was killed by Amara and the rest of the RKB. Another casualty was High Priest Yoho, cleric for the Temple of Seevo who was found viciously murdered by a creature possessed by otherwordly powers.
Besieged by Elflands forces, the Royal Knights Brigade infiltrated the orcish city of Thork to rescue the Characters agents stuck inside the town. Gell Hammerfist helped the party use the smuggling tunnels dug out by the Kobold Shipping Service.
The Battle of Hedgpeth played a pivotal role in the Character Revolution, providing the movement with a direct supply chain from Oridelfa all the way to Kassadeia. Unfortunately, the day came with severe losses: Amara Fireheart died in a one-on-one match against Princess Isabel, the Avon royal family assigned to oversee the region.
Veridan was killed by the Royal Knights Brigade just as he was about to sell information about The Mariner and the Characters to the Elflands. His soul was eaten by Wilbur.
The Royal Knights Brigade participated in the New Year's attack that destroyed the Elflands Empire once and for all. However, The Mariner revealed in the end that he was an agent of the Sunken God and that the entire revolution was orchestrated to provide his patron with a base of operations to spread his reign of terror. The party managed to kill him and tossed the reanimated corpse of Amara Fireheart out a window, but they had to leave the city in the clutches of countless sahuagin.
Roland Fireheart, Elan Quinn, and Jar-of-Bugs traveled to the Hakonian village to apprehend the rogue warlock Wilbur Whately. He was sent to a prison in Oakengaard for further questioning.
Jax was entangled in the web of the ettercap running Fairouz's former estate, but the party managed to defeat Fettercap's horde of giant spiders with the help of Astrid and the Castellan II crew. The palace was destroyed by Astrid following the battle, but not before some valuable intel was discovered about how to defeat the Sunken God.
The Royal Knights Brigade fought Cpt. Tarkov's elite army in the small fishing village of Chernenko in the middle of a storm. Jax delivered the killing blow to both Tarkov and his right-hand-man Valentin, even with a demon in the middle of everything.
The Royal Knights Brigade and the crew of the Castellan II were almost wiped out by Gleb and his hordes of monsters summoned through the powers of the Sunken God. Over a third of the crew was killed in the battle, but their sacrifices helped ensure the survival of the ship and the defeat of Gleb at the hands of Flora's Harm spell.
The Royal Knights Brigade decided to let Filip Vikander continue his research on the Elder Brain, but only on the condition that he'd let them check up on him in a few months.
Three out of four members of the Royal Knights Brigade were killed in Grettir, but thanks to Flora and Filip Vikander's reincarnate spell scroll they were all revived with (most) of their limbs intact. After defeating the celestial reincarnation of Thorvald, the party was given the legendary, dwarven Iron Flask on the condition that a dwarven paladin would escort them on their way to Kassadeia.
The Royal Knights Brigade ran into the genie Luuk Linden Jansen de Groot III again on its way to Poroshenko, this time they couldn't convince him to only give them one encounter. Instead, Luuk summoned two waves of monsters for the group to fight, one of which killed Simon Osaring. They defeated Luuk's monsters, and when he vanished the players hoped it would be the last time they'd face him.
