    cool, glad to be a member, Keep in mind though I am the Grand Master of the Templars first and a Hospitaller second.
  2. PubliusKhannus
    same with me as seneschal, but when the order of Templar does not demand my attention, the order of Hospitaller has another devoted member.

    Understood Crusader and Publius. But hopefully our two groups won't come to blows as we are all members of both. Here is an interesting fact. Rule 167 of the Templars: "And if it happens that any brother cannot go towards his banner because he has gone too far ahead for fear of Saracens who are between him and the banner, or he does not know what became of it, he should go to the first Christian banner that he finds. And if he finds that of the Hospital, he should stay by it and should inform the leader of the squadron". Also, - Click on the first link, it's very interesting. Also, I have decided to declare myself Grand Master of the Hospitallers.

    excellent link hospitaller, and *bows to the grandmaster* will the ranks of the order be set up in similar fashion to the Templar group, the noble allies and brothers of this illustrious group?

    That is fully up to Templar Crusader. If he lets me use it then I would definitely use the ranks he came up with. If not, I guess I could come up with a different set... but I'm hoping he'll let me use them.

    You can use my idea if you want, just give me credit for coming up with it.

    Good day to you all, fellows!

    It is nice to see a group dedicated to researching and thinking about the Hospitallers. I have always loved the Krak des Chevaliers, and the idea that a small group of mostly-humble medical/monk/contemplative knights rebuilt it over a period of more than one hundred years amazes.

    The Hospitallers were, for me, more than just warriors with amazing surcoats and chainmail, though! I find great comfort in the idea that they founded some of the first real hospitals for treating wounded and sick people, such as the Order of Lazarus. It is not so much the fighting, but the charity and love for the lowly that makes me love it. The Templar were just whacky, reckless knights who wanted their mystery kept about them, but the Hospitallers... !

    I hope to become a Sergeant here, and perhaps a Knight!

    Welcome to Thomas, but one thing no templar bashing here got it? Everyone here are also members of the Knights Templar Social Group.
  12. PubliusKhannus
    we are brothers in arms
  13. Monarchist
    Oh, I am sorry Templar Crusader. They were rivals back then, so I was continuing the joke. It will end here, though. Sorry.

    @ Thomas, not a problem.
    @ TC you might want to contact the leader of the Spartans and tell them that there is another group that is going to join the crusade against the persians.
  15. PubliusKhannus
    yes the more the merrier against the infidels.
