The Temple Orders

Post by JackTheStripper » Sun Mar 01, 2015 5:44 am

In Daggerfall the game, each Temple commands a knightly order, which can be considered as the military arm of the individual Temple, however these Temple Orders are differentiated from the Knightly Orders. The services that such an order provides are identical to the ones of the associated Temple. Similarly, membership in one, automatically applies to the other, so members of Templar Orders may also use the services at the associated Temple and vice versa. Many quests, both specific to the Temple Orders, and generic quests, are available.


The Temple Orders found in High Rock are as follows:

Order of the Hour — The military arm of the Akatosh Chantry
(Isle of Balfiera and Wayrest)

Knights of the Circle — The military arm of the Order of Arkay
(Ilessian Hills and Shalgora)

Order of the Lily — The military arm of the House of Dibella
(Koegria and Menevia)

Knights Mentor — The military arm of the School of Julianos
(Daenia, Dwynnen and Tulune)

Kynaran Order — The military arm of the Temple of Kynareth
(Alclaire, Daggerfall and Wrothgarian Mountains)

Maran Knights — The military arm of the Benevolence of Mara
(Anticlere, Betony, Glenumbra Moors, Northmoor and Ykalon)

The Crusaders — The military arm of the Temple of Stendarr
(Bhoriane, Phrygias and Urvaius)

Knights of Iron — The military arm of the Resolution of Zenithar
(Gavaudon, Glenpoint and Kambria)


In brackets are the regions associated with the aforementioned temple/deities. There are regional temples for the specific deity in the stated regions, as well as various other generic temples scattered around High Rock.

Based on the discord discussions of 6/12/17, a basic concept of the major city temple locations of the varied High Rock pantheon has been drafted. These are all up for revision and debate.
SpoilerShow
The city of Wayrest will be the location of the biggest temple of Akatosh due to having a temple to Akatosh in TES:II.

The city of Shornhelm will be the location of the biggest temple of Arkay due to its connection with the Crypt of Hearts.

The city of Camlorn will be the location of the biggest temple of Dibella due to its history of beautiful ladies in waiting including the soon to be married Lady Kelmena.

The city of Evermore will be the location of the biggest temple of Julianos due to its connection with Hedge Wizards.

The city of Daggerfall will be the location of the biggest temple of Kynareth due to it being the location of a Kynareth temple in TES:II and its proximity to the wild glens.

The university of Gwylin will be the location of the biggest temple of Magnus due to its position off of Nirn as well as the studies of magic the school is known for.

The city of Anticlere will be the location of the biggest temple of Mara due to it being the location of a Mara temple in TES:II as well having character descriptions from TES:II describing NPCs being associated with the temple.

The isle of Baelfera and its settlements will be the location of the biggest temple of the Elvish Hero Gods (especially Phynaster and Auri-El) due to its high mer population and the fact that it is the location of an Akatosh temple in TES:II

The city of Farrun will be the location of the biggest temple of Stendaar. There really are no concepts or lore to base this on other than it being a large city and Stendaar needing a home.

The city of Orsinium will be the location of the biggest temple of Trinimac and the Orsimer pantheon. This is based on plenty of lore collected from sources like the pocket guide to the empire 3rd edition.

The city of Jehanna will be the location of the biggest temple of Y'ffre due to the western reach's wild nature and the concept of the knights of Jehanna being 'witchknights'.

The city of Northpoint will be the location of the biggest temple of Zenithar due to the high craftsman and fishing populations of the region.

There is a discarded concept for the knightly temple orders here: viewtopic.php?f=142&t=396

This was originally meant for Cyrodiil, but in the end we decided not to include the knights. Feel free to use it for High Rock, or not.
