The Assassin’s Creed Effect: 3 Templar Games in 2011
The First Templar, The Cursed Crusade, and the next

It started as a small group of military monks emerging from the First Crusade, pledging poverty, chastity, and obedience, created to protect pilgrims making their way to the Holy Land…or to dig for ancient secrets under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
First they had the support of the Pope, then they lost it.
Around 1129 they were given sanction to answer only to the Pope and be granted absolution of their sins for their service against the infidel. Then after the famous Friday the 13th arrests in France in October 1307, the French-influenced Pope betrayed them.
