485 – King Uther Period
- Might makes right. It is a practical and brutal world.
- The Truce of God is a set of rules made by the church to limit violence against innocents, to make holy days peaceful, and to protect church property. Most nobles and knights ignore it.
- Knighthood includes a set of virtues — loyalty to one’s lord and the willingness to face one’s enemies and deal out death being primary.
- Chivalry is known from some bard’s stories, especially those about Alexander the Great. Of course, while knights naturally treat their fellows-at-arms with respect and civility, no one thinks it would be a good idea to offer similar courtesy to the Saxons, or for that matter to any enemy (even another knight).
- Romance is unknown.
