Templar Week enters day 3 and new details have been revealed about the history of The Secret World’s Templar secret society. The true origins of the Templars is shrouded in mystery, but Funcom has partnered several websites to shed some light on the righteous crusading knights.

The true origin of the Templars is still unknown, but some claim they can be traced back as far as the land between the two rivers and the rise of the Mesopotamian city-states, through Babylon and the Persian Empire, even to the marble floor of the Roman Senate. From there they spread their all-encompassing wings over Europe where they sat comfortably with kings, generals and popes. Their rise and arrogance was so great that the other secret societies conspired to bring them down. And they almost succeeded in the 1300s.

The story goes on to offer a glimpse into the mindset of the Templars and some of the duties that players will be tasked with in The Secret World should they take up the Templar banner.
