The Templar have come out of the shadows. The battle between light and dark now takes on a new look. Conspiracy, betrayal, and a decent helping of buttkicking all around. HarryFluer in later chapters
- Definitely an interesting premise that you're developing nicely so far. I have a question though, are these Templars related to the Knights of the Temple of Jerusalem (Knights Templar)?
It will be interesting to see if Jericho goes in as himself or under his original name.
Author's responseHehe good question. The idea to use the Templar branches from numerous things. Some of the rankings and color design are taken from Starcraft (High and Dark Templar) and a lot of the OC's names are either first or last name of actual members of the Knights Templar. But other than that there is no real connection between the two, since the Knights Templar tried to protect Jerusalem, where as the Templar in this story focus on protecting the world when the world screws itself by letting little problems become big ones.
- Actually, I was rather thinking of the late Knights Templar, after Jerusalem had fallen. They had quite the armed merchant fleet (which seems to have disappeared when they went down) and there are a lot of other items of theirs that went 'missing'. There are rumors of involvment with various magics and some claim that Freemasonry has its origins in the Templars. In any case, some of the theories about them would lend them as a basis for your Templars (or perhaps it's the other way around and the Knights Templar were a group who became too public and got caught out by their enemies). In any case, it's developing into an interesting and original story.
Author's responseThank you for the information. I look more into it, the sources I read didn't tell me much other than the fact that the Pope disbanded them after the king pressured him to. I'll look a lot more thoroughly now.
- What another great chapter, I like how it is going, I love the idea of the Templars. How on earth is Harry, Jericho, I hope you explain it soon, I'm guessing timetrevle somewhere... keep up the great work and update soon.
Author's responseHehe you will have to wait for a while Jericho's (Harry) story will remain a secret for a few more chapters.
