The Harem Knights are the result of one of the most epic derails in the recent history of /tg/. What begun as another typical thread of "Wizard takes you to a fantasy world, WAT DO?" quickly took a life of its own after one bold individual, a brave visionary, the first of the Knights, fiercely proclaimed that all he wanted to do was to rub some elf ears. But not without romancing them ears first, of course. What followed then was a thing of beauty, made of epic writefaggotry and, above all, love for all monstergirls.

Welcome to Castle Waifu.

The story so far, more or less[edit]

After clicking on a picture of a hot girl that turned to be a magical portal, a group of Fa/tg/uys were teleported to an abandoned castle in the middle of a forest where a wizard was waiting for them. Somehow the wizard got killed and the poor anons soon found themselves trying to survive the winter without food and being used for target practice by the neighboring Elves. Many died, everything was Grimdark as fuck and, right when all hope was lost, a refugee group of cat girls Felim bumped into our heroes and took pity of them. Turns out Humans in this fantasy world were a bunch of xenophobic assholes, so when the Fa/tg/uys, grateful to their saviors, offered to share the castle with the catfolk, they couldn't believe it and most of them took the offer, happy to have a place to call their own.

But things were not well in the nascent land of Teegee, for still many Fa/tg/uys and Felim were given the cheapest hedgehog costume in the world (read: shot full of arrows) by the Elven assholes. The Council of DMs, an improvised consultative body made to organize the different groups of anons back during the early days, held a meeting with everybody present to discuss the Elven problem. It was then were our valiant Gavran stood up to the more prudent voices and announced that the only thing that mattered to him was to rub some elf ears. The Harem Knights were born that very night, an elite group of warriors interested only in glory and waifus. The combined forces of Teegee launched a successful attack against the Elven village responsible from the deaths of their friends. Apparently Elves are a bunch of misogynistic assholes who consider their females nothing more than property. After the Fa/tg/uys liberated the Elven women, many chose to leave the village and move to the castle, which by then was already being called Castle Waifu.

Soon the other monster races in that world took notice of Teegee and how everyone was welcomed to Castle Waifu. Migrants arrived, businesses were open and more waifus were romanticized. Unfortunately, the Human realms also took an interest in TeeGee: there were spies, assassination attempts and many other shenanigans where our adventuring Knights were involved. Fa/tg/uys began trying to bring the industrial revolution to this world by making large quantities of gunpowder, creating a primitive printing press and many other things that somehow involved a very unfortunate incident with an automatic shovel launcher. It was a time of high adventure (the Teegee nation is mainly funded by dungeon crawling), prosperity and interspecies erotica.

Then the Orks came in 4 A.A Midyear, stormed Castle Waifu, ravaged the place and they were about to kill the surviving inhabitants where the Ork females turned on their males because, if so many females of so very different species were willing to sacrifice their lives for the anons it must then mean that they were the Alpha males to end all Alpha males and not joining their tribe and mating with them would be an unforgivable mistake. Many brave defenders and their waifus died that night, but then we learned that the Elves Realms were behind the Ork attack, wanting to know what our defenses were in order to retaliate for our attack to their village. What a bunch of assholes.

What'll happen next? That's for writefags to decide, it's not like there is an actual timeline or anything here, really, some say all of this happened over the span of five years, others say that a decade. We don't care, actually, as long as it's fun and has waifus in it.

The Unravelling[edit]

Sadly, the Harem Knights quickly became unwelcome on /tg/ as a result of a combination of such factors as a closed community and a shift in focus from adventures, fun antics, a sense of comradery and light-heartedness; to themes such as technological superiority, international politics Teegee effectively spreading its empire across the face of the continent.

Let this page therefore stand as a testament to the origins of the Harem Knights, so that, should they ever return, we do not forget from whence we came and the mistakes we all made.

The Code of Bro[edit]

  • Every person, be they man or woman, is born with the right to seek out their Waifu.
  • A man’s Waifu is his Waifu alone, to make a move on another man’s Waifu is the dickest of moves.
  • Do not insult another man’s Waifu. Everyone is someone’s Waifu and everyone thinks their Waifu is the best. To argue about this is to invite dissension and forsake Brotherhood.
  • Do not insult the size of a mans harem. Some men have one Waifu, some have many. This does not make either more pure or lecherous nor more or less skilled than the other, it is merely a choice and nothing more.
  • Do not attempt to take a woman as your own if she is not your Waifu. The world is plentiful, there is no need to be greedy and forsake others the right to their Waifu.
  • Always cherish your Waifu. She is there for you as you are there for her. Honor this bond.
  • Eat well, drink well, and adventure well, but most importantly, love well.

Fun facts[edit]

  • Teegee uses the Elder Scrolls calendar.
  • The Harem Knights have their own drinking song composed by Sir Fearghaile. Dead Link
  • 'That Guy' is the worst insult in the Teegee Cant.
  • The Felim worship the Nine Divines, who may or may not be taking an active role in the world.
  • A.A means after arrival. So 2 A.A is two years after the summoning. There is no year 0. When referring to events that took place one or two days after arrival the number days is used with a decimal point to tell that they mean days. So .53 A.A is 53 days after arrival.

Notable characters[edit]

  • Sir Artorias, Knight Sergeant: A warrior of renown, he attributes his success to the enchantments in his gear and the aid of his four waifus, Bethany, Karrigan, Melena, and Prescilla. Also known as Artorias the Abysswalker.
  • Sir Dustyn Howle: Founder and leader of the Order of Blades, a group of knights that specialize in espionage and unconventional warfare.
    • Sir Antoine, Schrodinger's Knight: A Knight in the Order of Blades, so titled because if you're not looking directly at him, you can never tell if he's there or not.
  • Engineer Fatwelder: Metalworker and armor smith, attempting to create old realm power tools and other technologies, using magic where unable to replicate mundane equivalents.
  • Sir Fearghaile: Captain of the Dragoons and Diplomat extraordinaire. Typically accompanied by his Felim companion, Kikki.
    • Kikkirin "The Flash": Kikki for short. Companion of Fearghaile and expert in daggers. While her relation to Lem has never been confirmed by either of them, pretty much everyone assumes she's his waifu. The wedding should be occuring rather soon now.
    • Sir Perrin, Banner Bearer of the Dragoons: Felim Lieutenant and second in command of the Dragoons. Sees to the cavalry unit while Sir Fearghaile and Kikki are away on diplomatic missions.
  • Sir Gavran Earstroker: it was his rallying cry for Elven ears to rub that set all this madness in motion and convinced the other Fa/tg/uys to retaliate against the Elves.
  • Sir GearHeart, The Wanderer: Is a strong and weathered man, to say the least. He has seen more than his fair share of hardships, and each one seems to only make him tougher. How he manages to keep a positive attitude, I am not sure. However, he will never abandon his life policy; treat others as they treat you.
    • Lilly, The Good Succubus: Sir GearHeart's Waifu, a succubus who is trying to put aside her old ways and live a life of good. She tries real hard, most of the time she comes out Neutral Sexy as apposed to Lawful Good.
  • Sir Giovanni, Homeguard Captain: Captain of the Castle Waifu Guard and founder of the Harem Knights order.
  • Sir Kasai: Sergeant-Major of the Castle Waifu Guard and Slaver hater. Married to Tomoe, a firey Kitsune and Guardswomen of TeeGee, and Larissa, a shy Lamia and hatmaker.
  • Harbinger, The Mortician:A rather detached librarian, necromancer, and medic. Vivisected an elf in the battle. Has two elven waifus, Eryana and Aryana, and Helbrey, a salamander. He got his name when he ASSUMED DIRECT CONTROL of several undead while battling a lich. Is also immortal now, apparently. Fae magic is weird shit.
  • Reginald, the Mountain: A seven foot tall giant of a man, wielding a maul known as the Boulder. Has a ghostly waifu. During the battle for Castle Waifu against the orcs Reginald defeated the chieftain of one of the orc clans, and by right of secession became the new Warmaster of the Splinter Tusk orcs, inheriting the chieftain's wife and magical battle axe Crag.
  • Vincent The Cook: With out a doubt the most powerful man in Castle Waifu. He is responsible for feeding those who reside in Castle Waifu.
  • Sir Iris: A noble soul, who made but one fateful mistake; to gaze lovingly into the eyes of his waifu. Who was a Gorgon.
  • Ahelub, the Serridian Merchant: A spy in the service of Caliph of Serrid (May the cleft of his buttocks never itch). Killed by a knight known as Dythier as he attempted to send his report by falcon.
  • Tanash Shacklesbane: Former Guard turned Slave Hunter Extraordinaire. Freed his future waifu Soraya after she was infected with a magical bio-weapon of unknown origin. Retired from slave hunting full-time after being captured and losing an eye before being rescued.

  • Olin, the Librarian: Chronicler, used to be a history professor at Stanford. Is the object of his assistant's affections.
  • Silver, The Witch of TeeGee: One of the most accomplished spell casters of TeeGee, who travels into Fey lands and explores those dangerous places. Despite being sickly, she teaches the basics of her eclectic selection of skills to any who want to learn, including martial, magical, or mundane. Long since discarded her actual name.
  • The Clover Journals: A book with a history long enough to be its own character, the author remains unknown. Appearing to only describe an Island to the West, home to Obsidos, City of Black Glass, and the Fruit of Life, it nonetheless manages to drive most of its readers mad. Most suspect its a form of mind magic, or cursed. Few realize that it contains the secrets to an ancient magic that even the Fey and Demons have never mastered- one that could allow a person able to understand it to rewrite reality as he sees fit. Fewer still know that the author is a mortal and still lives.
    • B and K: Two spies who are very interested in acquiring one of these books, they make do with second hand accounts and reports from the many people and races that have encountered one. Very mysterious folks, the only things known about them is that both are Outrealmers, base themselves in TeeGee without the Knights' knowledge, and that B is the field agent, while K is the handler. Oh, and K's getting married.
  • Architect Jistin: Full name is Hetros Jistin. Architect and Mason, applying a surprising number of game and level design things into the building and expansion of Castle and City Waifu. Also responsible for large portions of infrastructure redesign across all TG lands. Married to 5 waifus, all but one of the very short variety, leading to comments from some people. Also has a ridiculously large number of children.
  • "Cook": A barbaric madman who lived with a tribe of Orks (when asked which type his answer is usaully "the Orky kind") for seven years before coming back to Teegee to "show them the ways of good food: Orkish Style." He was promptly banned from the Castle's kitchens after nearly destroying it from making a single loaf of meatbread.
  • Ser Morgana the Touched: Daughter of Sir Euphemism, looking to become a knight and find her own one true waifu. Though she ends up doing little more than stumbling into fights, winning often by sheer dumb luck, and getting taken advantage of because she is still yet a naive young thing. Can cook like a boss, though.
  • Khru Thai: Religious scholar and cultural explorator. First headmaster of the Wat, Teegee's University.
  • Sir Elric: A lesser known scout of TeeGee.
  • Sir Cypher: This guy is the Chief Explorer of TeeGee. He likes books and rare weapons. He has collections of both from his travels housed in his room in the castle. His wiafu is an elven girl called Lila. He is originally from Earth and hails from the land of Britain. His most important possession is a metal Noise Marine from GW, and the only minifigure in the land of TeeGee.

On the Subject of Magic[edit]

  • Extract from the graduate papers of Zerion Eindclar, student of the Midyahs University of the Arcane, 12 of Sun's Height, 4th year after Arrival

Broadly speaking, one can assume that any wizard you meet suffers from at least some form of autism, in one way or the other. This rule is not absolute, but there is a very good reason why it holds true; the laws of magic are such that the very specific mindset of an autistic person has a much easier time grasping them. To some, magic is an art, or form of expression, to others, it's just a science, but for whatever reason, autistic individuals have an easier time manipulating the arcane. This, of course, is not the only way to attain magical mastery, but it is among the easiest.

Another method is magical breeding. Over the course of several generations, the children of magic-using parents start to be born with an inherent talent for magic. This manifests in the form of increased reserves of magical energy and a natural aptitude for the easier spells, even to the extent of instinctively knowing how to use magic, without tuition, in some of the oldest bloodlines. The first signs of this predilection are usually seen in the second generation born to a line. In Mithterrah, most magical institutions boast the progeny of many generations of focused breeding. It is often thought that magic is itself a CAUSE of autism, but this is not the case. In fact, it is simply that the families of Mithterrah's mages were mostly founded by autistic mages, their natural ability for magic having been passed on, along with the magical talent.

Of course, having neither autism, nor magical lineage is not a complete barrier to learning magic. Some individuals have managed to become mages while lacking either of these traits, some even becoming magic-users of great renown. It is simply a much harder trail for them to grasp what their peers take to naturally.

It is worth noting also, that 'autism' has been discovered to be a somewhat catch-all term. Several of the knights of deviant kingdom of Teegee have demonstrated at least passing talent for magic and sorcery, despite not being autistic in the strictest sense of the word. The current suspicion is that this is in some way tied to their uniquely sane brand of madness, utterly unknown elsewhere in the world.

  • From Magic, Insanity, and You: A Beginers Guide to the Base Magics: In my time studying the nature of magic I came across two “Schools” of magic. “Faith” magic can be divided in to two “Classes” shamanistic magic which is magic drawn from the earth and clerical magic which is prayer powerd. The other “school” is the arcane type of magic, which can be divided into three classes. Sensate magic is based almost entirely on the feel of things, you can't cast something till you know how it feels. As such they have a tendency to specialize in one element. In a way they are very much like sorcerers. The next class is Autistic Magic. Which is the magic of orderly chaos, it's formulaic in nature and being a bit crazy helps. However studying is the most important part. The last class was what I have labeled drunk magic, though compulsion magic would be more accurate. I first discovered it while studying enchantments. It originated in the Dwarven Mountains. In this magic type a compulsion strikes the caster and they sort of force the idea they have into an object. The reason there are so many strange enchanted things out there, is because a lot of enchanters use stimulants to force the creative strike. Hence Drunk magic.

Everyone falls on a sort of spectrum of the arcane magic. With Sensate on one end and Drunk on the opposite end, Autistic magic in the middle. Where one falls determines their starting strengths and weakness. One of the most famous examples is that of Sir Lyrik Kitril, who in my opinion fell far with in the Sensate area, but still has touches of the Autistic magic.

Some claim that magic breeding occurs over time, where the offspring of magical creatures inherit magical skill from their parents. This theory leads to stronger generations over time. I like to refer to this theory as Bloodline Sorcery. I am no expert on the subject as it would take skills I don't have and a lot of time and research to figure it out.

There is also a class of individuals called Awakened; these are individuals who have their full magical potential unleashed. There are 4 kinds

  • Divine: Those given power by the Gods themselves. Certain individuals who catch their attention and prove themselves are given this boon of Awakening. Those who are Divinely Awakened specialize in healing and holy magic. This is the first step to Ascension to being Sainted after death.
  • Demonic: Those given power by demons. Should one completely submit to demonic forces and aid their battles and conquests, this is the boon of Awakening those receive. Those who are Demonically Awakened specialize in the destructive magic and curses. Should one continue upon this path, power shall be given after death in Hell in the deed of Transfiguration to Arch Demon.
  • Fey: Those exposed to the Fey magic. The conditions for a Fey based awakening are variable.
  • Natural: This field of Awakening is only gained through bloodline alone, much like the above statement of Bloodline Sorcery. Those who are Naturally awakened have the closest ties to the Ancestral race that once governed the world. (i.e: Bloodline is not diluted through breeding with others outside their own race. Humans are more likely to get this boon.)

"...According to Aenor, anyone can use magic (though few could do so well), since everyone is born with the “blood of the arcane” as he called it. You had to look deep inside yourself, find the spark of magic within you, and bring its power to the surface. In all honesty I was reminded of that part of Dragon Ball Z where Gohan was training Videl, only instead of one of the most skilled practitioners in all of creation I was stuck with Yamcha. Still I tried my best, trying to think of electricity non-stop from every movie, show, and vidya game I could think of that had it, along with everything I learned about it from science classes. Unfortunately, it seemed that there’s quite the difference between the blood of the Old World and the blood of the New World. I couldn’t get anything for the whole two weeks we were on that boat, and as soon as we got to Serrid, Aenor just fucking ran off. Damn wizard, skipping out before I had made any progress, no sense of right and wrong I tell you.... Then it hit me, all this time I had been thinking of all the electricity I had ever seen or heard of, but I had completely forgotten all the electricity I had felt. I started scouring my brain for every event in my life that had involved me being electrocuted; the spoon in the toaster, fixing the fridge’s ice maker, unplugging the broken fridge, changing car batteries, setting up Christmas lights, playing Legos, everything I could think of. By the end of the day, I kept an arc of blue light dancing between my fingers. I knew the way electricity felt, and I could control it. Granted it took a long time and purposefully getting struck by a full sized bolt of lightning before I could put any real power behind my bolt, but I could still act as a human stun gun and charge the electronics that managed to survive (we brought a LOT of porn with us to this world), though granted unless I sat there for hours the charge only lasted for a few minutes after I let go. Some people say that it wasn’t the bolt of lightning that super charged me, but that crazy people just have better control over magic and actively trying to get struck by lightning was the last shred of my sanity burning away." -Excerpt from the journal of Sir Lyrik Kitril

  • Another method of magic usage is through summoning elementals. It requires the summoner to have studied the element of that he or she wishes to summon. By infusing magic into a medium an elemental can be called and controlled as it is just a manifestation of the summoners magic power. It is even possible to make a pact with an already existing one by letting it feed off of the users magic energy when called to sustain itself, however it is far more difficult to control as it is sentient, even more so when it's a physical based incarnation. If one has enough magic power, he or she can inscribe an incantation allowing the user to summon the elemental anywhere at anytime provided they have enough power to do so, however one must attain knowledge from an elemental one has made a pact from in the above statement. -Notes from Augir Melus
  • The Arts of Healing: The basic idea of healing is knowledge of the physiology of the patient. Being such as Humans, Felim, and others that share similar physical traits are easier to treat. Curing disease is best left to medicine unless the magic user has knowledge of virology and bacterium too; Biologists from the old world are best suited for treating the injured and sick as they hold the most knowledge about the cells of lifeforms and how it can be dealt with. For plant based lifeforms, Botanists would be better suited for the task. For magical beings, such as Fey, any magic user can heal them through an infusion of magical energy from their own bodies. Once the infusion is applied, the Fey will self recover over a period of time. Magical beings that take severe injury from specific weapons designed for such purposes or other means will result in their forms destabilizing and return to the ether from which they were born. Otherworldly beings are a different story. Little is known about how to treat their injuries. -Compiled notes from various sources

The Evolutionary Hierarchy of the Elves, and Reactions to Outside Stimuli[edit]

Too long, moved to Harbringer's Studies


On Orcs and the Differences within[edit]

  • An excerpt from An Outlanders Guide to Indigenous Species volume I: Orcs and Orcish sensibilities. In this world there are three know subgroups in the Orc family. They are Orcs, Orcs, and Orks. As you can no doubt see this can get a bit confusing at times. The one type of Orc is the Savage Orc, this type lives in the coastal area, tend to be illiterate. Next there is the High Orc, these can be described as the noble savage. They have a higher percentage of literacy and have a form of government, While as the Savage Orcs are a pack group that follows the alpha alpha male, which is arguably a form of governance. The High Orcs are so called as they live in the mountain regions unlike other Orcs. The easiest way to tell them apart is usually skin color Savage Orcs are green and High Orcs are more of a grayish color with touches of green. Course there is no mistaking an Ork for any other group as they are the biggest of the lot and it is important to note that the other Orcs tend to see them as we would see inlaws. Orks live in the southern plains and are the most violent of the lot and largest group, they were the also the ones who went to war on us. And Finally on the topic of Orc opinion, never ever call an Orc anything but an Orc. They all insist that they are the real Orcs and that it is the other groups that are not being very Orcy and as such take offense at Labels like those used in this book.
  • An excerpt from An Outlanders Guide to Indigenous Species volume I, High Orcs: High Orcs are a society based off of power and it is common for lovers to try to embarrass their lovers in front of others and make them seem more powerful than the other. As such Females tend to enjoy trying to put their lover in embarrassing situations while males tend to use pure strength. It should be noted though that in healthy relation ships it stays purely a game. The Introduction of BDSM to Orc society was probably the most potent change us Outrealmers have made to High Orc society. The High Orcs have two gods. Ter the war and moon god, the twin moons are said to be his eyes watching on his mate and their children. Tera the Earth Mother the god of life and the earth, Ter's mate and the mother of all living things. The High Orcs are a proud warrior race. The males are in charge of warfare and the females are in charge of religion, there is a lot of other lap though. One important thing to remember is that High Orcs do not like being told what to do and can react violently.

Demons and Succubi[edit]

  • An excerpt from An Outlanders Guide to Indigenous Species volume I, Succubi Succubi are normal women who fail into deals with demons, over the course of time the women are indoctrinated and converted to succubi. The length of transformation is dependent on countless factor. Succubi are characterized by two things sex and rules. As such young succubi are required to be pierced and wear nothing, so as when an infraction of a law occurs an elder succubi can pull her aside easily. A Succubi is no longer required to dress as such after going five years with out breaking a law, some Succubi take longer than others and some never manage this feat still others continue to dress in such a fashion for their own reasons.
  • Back before the elves ruled the land. It was the age of demons. Chaos was rampant and death a constant or quite possibly the other way around. So one day the age of demons came to an end and the elves took over. Not because of the strength of the elves but because of the weakness of the demons. They had nearly driven themselves to the point of extinction. There were only five demons left at the time. In comes Nebiroth the Trickster, he has a plan, two in fact. The first to repopulate the demon race, he proposed the creation of what is now know as succubi. The second to ensure that such an event never took place again they would create laws by which they would abide. So the first succubi was created when they captured and elven girl of the name Lilith, they corrupted her soul and infused her very being with demonic energy. And so the newly made succubi would repopulate the demon race either by corruption or by birth. Over time laws changed and new ones were made and demons ended up as you know them today.
