The North Star Order's standard.



The North Star Order is an order of noble fighters and knights from all various backgrounds. Its mission is "to instill a sense of chivalry, camaraderie, achievement and honor to those who so choose to join it. The Order will establish a ranked structure both for leadership as well as regular forces, whose focus will be primarily the martial studies inside BMCS." It was originally founded by Carden Coburn and Kaladin in an attempt to create an outpost for potential fighters in Camp Pendleton, California. The group functions as an egalitarian democracy where no one has any more say in the group than the others. It previously served the realm of Andor, but as of 2016, relocated to the fledgling realm of Blackfen, where it served as a foundational structure to aid the growth of the realm. The unit hopes to serve as a knightly representation for southern Indiana, a typically under-served area.

Mission Statement

Per the North Star Order Unit Charter:

It is the mission of the North Star Order, herein referred to as The Order, to instill a sense of chivalry, camaraderie, achievement and honor to those who so choose to join it. The Order will establish a ranked structure both for ordained knighthood as well as regular fighters, whose focus will be primarily the martial studies inside BMCS as well as artificing weaponry according to the Book of War.



April 23, 2014

The group was founded after some initial thought of roughly two weeks. The two founders (Carden Coburn and Kaladin) talked with those who displayed interest and thus the unit was formed, while no standard or insignia had been created. The unit would be a group where people living in the area (Camp Pendleton) could come to learn, build and train together. The preliminary group was established with four members and a potential of several more. The following year, both the founders' military obligations lead them away from focus on Belegarth and the unit died down for some time until Kaladin's departure. The unit dwindled with no real direction and the following year, both founders had left the Southern California region.


June 15, 2016

After the departure of Kaladin and Carden Coburn from Camp Pendleton, leadership was handed over to Carden, who relocated to southern Indiana. Due to logistical constraints, he was unable to fully focus his efforts on reviving the unit. It was then that the unit went into hiatus where it remained until its revitalization a few years later.


January 16, 2020

It took Carden a few years to gather the supplies, knowledge and logistical infrastructure necessary to fully take on revitalizing the unit and found a new realm simultaneously. During the first year of revitalization, the Unit Charter was written, and the first group of Indiana members were recruited. While no members at the time were Knights as ordained by way of BMCS tradition, the hierarchical structures were created and the unit began to blossom. With the advent of the COVID-19 virus, realm and unit operations halted as the kingdom waited for the plague to burn out. A few wrenches were thrown in the gears, but the unit remained hopeful and positive.
