The Knight of Iron advances in his, Gaerdal Ironhand's, service through prayer, fasting, and meditation. When a knight commits a serious transgression, he (or she) must seek out the nearest higher-level Knight of Iron, and atone with a quest of that knight's (and Gaerdal's) choice.
Gaerdal's knights are expected to defend their people against any threat, even at cost of their lives. They are typically served by one or more fighters in the service of Gaerdal, and will occasional build and maintain stone forts on the borders of gnomish lands. Failed Knights of Iron are still welcomed by their people, but are shunned by all in Gaerdal's service.
