"Good things come to those who wait."---Greldum Drobe, captain of the White Rhino's military corps, addressing his young apprentice.
The Order of the White Rhino is an organization that was formed in the Dwarven
Kingdom of Throal. It was formed roughly ten years after the scourge had ended. In it’s
first few years, the White Rhino’s were a privately owned military organization. The
owner of the White Rhinos was a dwarf named Winston Spade. Winston Spade was a
firm believer in Throalic law and created the Order of the White Rhinos to assist the king
of Throal to enforce those laws. He would keeps his small private army available for all
emergencies, whether it be to fight back horrors, the greedy Theran Empire, or the
dangerous Denairstas clan of Iopos.
At first, the White Rhinos were welcomed and the king found that there military support
was very helpful. Unfortunately, the king could not pay the Rhino’s there fees and the
Throal army. Winston didn’t want to disband his group but he would have to if he could
not get enough funds to support his cause. With king Varulus unable to assist, Winston
needed to make some changes in his organization. He expanded the White Rhinos,
making them more than just a military force. He created many branches in the White
Rhinos. This elevated the interests of other independent parties who wished to buy a
portion of the organization. Winston, knowing that if he did not find some sufficient
funding soon, relinquished some of the shares of the White Rhinos.
To this day, the Order of the White Rhino has survived as a major organization. They are
still a military force but they are also more than that now. They are researchers of magic,
history and legends. they currently are based in the Throal kingdom but have begun
preparations to extend their boundaries to other parts of Barsaive.
