The boldest and bravest knights have adapted the saying 'You can't keep a good man down' in a rather dramatic way. Should such a knight take a blow that renders him unconscious, their inner strength and determination can force them back on their feet again. They will not be in any condition to fight, but at least they can guide their companions away from danger. Relentless is constantly in effect, but it does not always work. A knight who is not leading a band into battle has less to lose and, as such, will not make use of this skill. In addition, some blows can be too severe to recover from, and some kill the knight instantly without a chance to stand up. In any event, it takes a lot of effort to regain consciousness this way, and the knight will find himself exhausted and only barely able to move.
