From publisher blurb:
Hyvrik is the name given to the legendary red and white checkered shield of Larani, goddess of chivalry and battle. Just as Hyvrik protects the "Unwilling Warrior" from her foes, so does this order of her priesthood seek to protect her followers. The Order of Hyvrik is the main arm of the Laranian Church in western Hârn and stands as a spiritual bulwark against the churches of Agrik and Morgath that seek to dominate the region. The order sponsors the fighting order, the Checkered Shield.
This article describes the order's origin and history, current situation, doctrines and practices, organization, and leadership.
