It all began as a trembling flame that turned into a full blown conflict between the two faiths. Seeing no other way to stop the unnecessary bloodshed. The Templars acted as ambassadors and signed a peace treaty with the vikings. Years passed and the Dark Ages began bringing hunger, famine, plague and violence. The common people believed that the peace treaty with the heathens unleashed God’s Wrath. They started protests throughout the kingdoms. And soon enough the Templars were arrested and the peace treaty voided. One Templar Knight managed to escape.
Trying to reconnect with your people, from whom you were taken as a child, and to put an end to the Templar oppression, you will rediscover your original Gods and you will be harnessing their powers. You will find out the legend of an ancient weapon that could change everything.
