Knights Templar had been in the planning since early November of 2016 when Odin messaged Thalmor about the idea. The alliance was founded on February 1st, right in the middle of the SK-TEst War. In exchange for peace, KT members agreed to leave TEst and go to Pantheon's applicants.
Upon being founded, Knights Templar gradually grew to over 100 active members by May 5th. During that time, it remained neutral during The Trail of Tiers. KT's lower tier did experience some combat during the Animal Control Crusade, however.
Thalmor resigned as Grand Master on November 17, 2017, handing down the title to Theodosius (formerly known as Apollo). This was the first time in KT's history that the head leadership position had changed.
After being on the winning side of some minor wars (Oblivion-Zeon War and Kastor's Karma War), the Knights Templar had their first real test in the Ayyslamic Crusade. As the only alliance hit in The Inquisition's initial blitz, KT's entire mid tier had their military wiped and was in result pinned down for the remainder of the war. It fought back using pirate tactics, while the upper tier welcomed the United Purple Nations' declaration of war to get some action as well. At the end of the war, KT still managed to boast a slightly positive net damage in the war stats.
After the Ayyslamic Crusade, Knights Templar decided to pursue a new political path and altered their foreign policy, aligning themselves with The Golden Horde and Western Union.
Alliance Government Edit
The Knights Templar Government is made up of the Grand Master, the Templar Council and Templar Officers, where it further divides into departments - FA, IA, Econ and Milcom.
Departments and their heads are as follows:
Grand Commander - Second in Command (defunct)
Grand Chancellor - Foreign Affairs
Grand Almoner - Economics
Grand Senechal - Internal Affairs
Grand Marshal - Military Command
Every department head has up a deputy serving as Templar Officer, helping him run the department, as well as additional staff known as Adjutants.
Esquire Templar Edit
Esquire Templar (ET) exists as an extension alliance of the Knights Templar. It is an alliance which is used for training new members who wish to join KT.
The Headmaster of Esquire Templar is tasked with running ET. This position is de facto a part of the government of Knights Templar. Although it does not necessarily have a specified department jurisdiction, it works closely with KT's Economics and Internal Affairs.
Current Headmaster of ET is Flavius Stilicho, who himself was a former trainee in ET.
Official Description Edit
Esquire Templar is an extension of the Knights Templar. It serves as a training and recruitment alliance. An attack on ET is the same as attacking a member of KT. Feel free to attack us anyways, though. The members of both alliances could use the experience in wrecking you.
Although there are special exceptions, membership in Knights Templar can only be obtained through months of training and learning here in Esquire Templar. The process is rough. Members must endure exercises, must do a lot of reading, and are expected to remain very active. However, those who pass are allowed to enter the elite halls of the Knights Templar, and will be some of the top players in the game (compared to many others of the same in-game age, at least).
If you believe you are a good enough player to skip training and join KT directly, then private message KT gov over Discord.
