*sips tea, relaxing in an armchair by a fireplace as he alternates between teacup and pipe*

The life of someone taking a semester off seems trivial in comparison to you lads.

This quest is gonna go great. I predict the tumultous overthrow of an enemy regent and the new regime of Lord Giles, with a trusted court.

If anyone has any questions about the Templars and wants to save themselves the research, I did a fair amount of digging [and ignoring of some of their more...rigorous rules. Who cares how many horses and valets a master Templar should have for a roleplay, right?] and am willing to toss out what I know.

I'll go ahead and dish out the bit that surprised me the most given their reputation; only 1/10 of the Templar order, roughly, are actually knights, and in this time period I'd estimate there are roughly ~15-20,000 members of the Templar order [close to their peak/downfall numbers]. That means that there are maybe, idk, 1,500 actual knights Templar. Their instrumental influence comes uniquely from their ties to the papacy [example: Them being completely above and beyond all laws of a given country] and the sheer amount of money their order [despite their individual vows of poverty] wields in terms of land and businesses. People would even put their entire properties in Templar control while they went on Crusades, or would sell all their goods to Templars in exchange for guaranteed funds in the holy land [Possessions transferred to Templars, Templars give pilgrim a writ with a number on it, pilgrim gets to Jerusalem and turns that writ in for equivalent cash].

Templars are basically a giant bank across Europe/The Middle East that has land holdings, with the most badass security guards one could hope for, to put it in less bulky wording.




That being said, hoo boy this is gonna be a trip. Two people apprehensive of Hugo, so far, and all he's done is be a Templar. Can't wait to see how this ride goes.

Also, I enjoy this little campfire introduction. A lot of RPs just sorta leave introductions to awkward toss-ups that make it hard to bring people together. This is nice.

I agree actually - and it gives Alfred all the more reason to be wary of you all. This isn't the first quest he's been on, and it's not the first noble he's served either. He knows what to look for, and he's seeing it *all*.

Aurelie in particular has earnt his notice. Nobody who describes themselves as 'a fighter' and naught else is ever really a fighter and naught else. Especially when they don't try to big up how good they are at it.

Great posts everyone. I'm liking the discussion too. Also, kinda like how @Fading Memory offerred, feel free to pick my brain on the setting or really anything else in this time period. I'm getting my certificate in Medieval History and culture next semester so I have a fair amount of knowledge, though I'm no professor haha.
