Baron Sir Jibril-al Dakhil,
Earl Marshal of the East Kingdom


Greetings, We are defined by the rules that hold us tougher. It is our job as marshals to ensure those rules are upheld and with the same dedication to excellence and integrity that we expect of every fighter that steps onto the field of combat. We are not potted plants, we are the foundation that allows combat to thrive with safety, honor and glory. Pay heed the marshal and lay on!
