Hello Templars, Royal Ambassador Aelwyna here, hailing from the mighty Elin & Popori kingdom :)
It's been a while since our last "State of the Guild" post, and quite a few things have happened !
First off, we finally defeated Shilen, the Goddess of Destruction, and locked her back for good in her Blood Moon prison! Can you believe how awesome we are, rising against a Goddess ? (...well, ok, we got a little bit of help from pratically everyone on Arborea, but still...)
Following this victory, I've been called by Princess Rida to to sit on the Pora Elinu Royal Council, so even if it broke my heart I had to take a step back in leading all of you wonderful Templars.
But because I didn't want to let you go like that, I've asked our former Hierarch, Sinesia, to replace me and become the new Templars of Dawn Guild Master, and she happily and emotionally accepted !
Now at least I know you're in great hands, and as a Royal Ambassador I can still come and visit you from time to time, and make the Templars voice be heard at the Royal Court !
From my visits, I can see that a lot of Templars are now taking different matters in their own hands and organizing expeditions all over Arborea to get rid of evil wherever it may lurk !
It's great to see that not only Officers, but also Templars themselves are so invested in pursuing our original vision, and that they are now shaping the Guild to make it their own !
I can also see that we have new Adepts (that's our first Rank) joining regularely, and I trust that Sinesia and the Officers will be awesome mentors for all of them, make them discover the wonders of Arborea and the joy of working together as a team !
Maybe a new Promotion Ceremony could be on the way to update everyone's Rank and bring new Officers to the forefront ? We'll let you know about that !
After all these years and everything that has happened on Arborea, we're still here and more alive than ever, so if anyone needs any help, don't hesitate to call us and we'll rush to your rescue !
Alright, I hear that Arin & Rida are fighting again, probably about the shape of our Royal Court table this time, so I have to intervene and try to calm them down ... then I'm gonna have a good swim in the Lake of Tears !
Long live the Templars of Dawn !
