Subject     Guthan MacLanisca... Son of Caergoth

To whom it concerns as they reside in such an office as is fit to review
this petition for entrance into the Solamnic Order, my name is Guthan of the
House Lanisca of Caergoth. 

My father is Elixander Lanisca, who faithfully served the Lord of Caergoth
Cedrick Veritan as his Weaponsmaster in years past. My father was a minor
Knight of Solamnia as I understand it, though due to his attention to his
service of Lord Cedrick, he has not given any great consideration to his
Knighthood in my lifetime, having chosen instead to focus on his duties to
his Lord. Consequently he has told me very little of his standing or place
in the Knighthood, and the circumstances that compel me to pen this petition
without the opportunity to consult with him about it I will detail below. 

As you know, the borders of Solamnic lands were threatened by maurader
invasions to the south east stemming from the Khalkist Mountains. When the
call for volunteers was posted in Caergoth, my friend and I signed on. For
two years we fought for Solamnia, first by rebuffing the initial forces of
the invasions, and later by patrolling our homeland looking for the
scattered pockets of the invaders who did manage to slip by. We served under
Solamnic Knights for the bulk of our experience in the two years we spent
fighting, and despite being unable to integrate fully into the Solamnic
Knight's forces, we made ourselves useful as willing combatants in the
defense of our homeland wherever possible. 

With the threat to our homelands largely subsided at this point in time, I
have therefore decided (with the urging of one of my Solamnic officers) to
petition for acceptance into the Solamnic Knights. 

I am currently residing in Palanthas, having accompanied a group of refugees
displaced by the fighting near Gerighelm to Palanthas along with the
Solamnic officer who urged me to write this petition and a handful of
volunteers we served with. This is the reason I am unable to corrospond with
my father as to the finer points of etiquette regarding this petition, for
which I apologize now. 

I have trained with my father since I was a boy in the ways of Knightly
Combat. I find my strength though in asking Paladine for guidance, which has
led to my drawing certain abilities through his grace by prayer. 

I ask you humbly now, as I ask of Paladine, for acceptance into your order
so that I can better defend our homelands against invasion and protect our
people from injustice. 

Thank you,
Guthan MacLanisca di Caergoth.
