My Brothers let me be the first to speak at Andric’s behest as to my intentions and desires for our Orders and Brotherhood should my history, words and deeds bring you too cast your vote to entrust the mantle and responsibility of the Lord Knight onto my shoulders.

I would first give my thanks to our current Lord Knight Rufus for bestowing upon me the honour to lead the Templars under his tenure this year as Lord Knight, it is a great privilege to be chosen to lead one of our orders and one I am truly grateful for.

This is not the first time I have been nominated by those among our ranks and have had the honour to stand to before you and seek your support.

That which I have spoken in the past still rings true and I would not seek to hide my past words from you and so I should you wish to please do read them here. I make no apology for repeating what I may have said before for I truly believe this is fundamental to our Order and ensuring me remain a force for those in need across this world and untold others.

My vision remains as true now as it was then and I will seek to establish all that I have publicly spoken of before.

Sworn in as an Unblooded Knight in the days when Saladin the Summoner of the Knights was a marvel to behold, the Lord Knight’s sheer presence was awe inspiring and the brotherhood swelled the ranks of the vitae blessed. I was blooded at a young age and have fought many battles beside those brothers that have been chosen to lead our Orders and our Brotherhood in times past.

As I cross into the later part of my third decade as a Knight I have witnessed our brotherhood wax and wane. I am an old knight and I hold that dear to my heart, new blood, new leaders can be a boon to our order but there must be those that truly understand our history, our duty and the very virtues that form our oath such that those that come after us do not do so with a false oath or belief as to what the oath is within their heart.

While we are a brotherhood we must move away from becoming insular and turning our backs upon the vitae blessed who have not sworn the oath. The Knights should inspire those around them, by our deeds and actions we are a rallying point for others to find their courage, a clarion call in the chaos of conflict, a banner boldly held aloft to call our allies to the sanctuary of our line such we may defend them as we do one another.

The order should grow through the deeds of all those within the brotherhood, when we fight beside those allied with us we should treat them with the respect and honour we do our brothers, we should seek to defend, protect, empower and cherish their lives as we do our brothers in the hope they will see the strength and virtue within our brotherhood and come willingly to our banner. No one is unimportant or should be judged as such because they have not taken the oath and anyone who believes otherwise I will stand vigil beside until they see the truth and virtue in my words.

I have seen the best and worst of our order and I seek to ensure in the now and the future we as a brotherhood embody the true spirit of the oath and not the letter. I am not blind to the truths of our Order or the imperfections of the past or present but I have a true desire to see the Order return to being the paragon it can be, that we make each other better knights, we inspire one another, we raise up one another by our actions and our deeds, that we understand the consequences of decisions we make and are considerate in the paths we take and lessen the suffering of others but that we know right from wrong, that the simple path is not always the right path and sometimes no choice is a good one and we carry the burden of those actions on our shoulders.

The Knights were summoned in Legend and we are a force, a power, a strength that should be honoured and respected. However we as Knights must not only earn that respect and show that honour but be a beacon to the downtrodden and the hopeless, the fearful and those shackled by dominion.

I have walked on many worlds and many more than I have stood upon have witnessed the true actions of at least one brother and heard the name “The Knights of the Land”. We must remember that we were not formed on Primus that there are other places and peoples that need us, some that do not even know of our order but hold hope in their hearts that the darkness that holds them will one day be unshackled from them such they can be free. We must remember those we have pledged and promised to aide and be true to our word and see things to the end wherever we begin them.

The Knights Oath, the Brotherhood, our ideals and Orders should not be the pinnacle of that we aspire to be as Knights but the very basis on which we stand and the standards to which we must hold ourselves and each other.

Place your trust in me and let us make this so.

Let this year be a year of Virtue.

Sword in Hand,
Brothers Together,
We Defend the Land”

These are the manifest visions I seek to bring to light in this coming year as Lord Knight, if elected so:


To declare a day per season “Summoning Day” where we vow to don our armour, sheath our blades and pick up our shields and each and every brother able too attends a muster not under the banner of our Brotherhood but among the caste of the Vitae Blessed. Lending our strength, ideals and commitment to seeing good works done among the mercenary community with a depth of Knights present as in days of old.

To gather and send our Orders both combined and alone to act to defend the people and the land within these borders and beyond.

To encourage and entrust the nominated Deputy Lords of Order to lead musters to tackle threats, resolve dangers and defend those in need and blood a new cadre of Knights to such we can entrust the future to their hands.

To keep our word to the people and worlds we have promised our aide and seek to free them from the dangers or tyranny they live under.

To lead those willing to the now Masterless Arc of Fire within Legend and do what we as Knights should always have done and purify and strengthen Legend such that it is whole once more and sealed off from the demonic realms that the Arc acts as a bridge between. So removing the danger and power the Arc presents from Legend such that it cannot be used for ill again, upon Legend or other worlds and eradicating the ability for any to claim Mastery of it and its power again.
