As we all know, after every big and long war comes change. We in the Knights Templar have our minds set to rebuild, as the longest Orbis war wraps up, both our economies and government. And as our economical revival hastily begins, with the best interests of the membership and alliance in mind, we, the Knights Templar, are issuing this important news bulletin regarding recent changes in Government lineup. Some of these changes have been in the works for a long time, some of them in the works for much less, however we believe that the time is now to announce these important changes.
Our old and decrepit leader Theodosius has decided to retire from acting office as Grand Master of the Knights Templar.
Theodosius has served as Grand Master of the Knights Templar for the previous 9 months, as well as Grand Chancellor and Grand Commander previous to his succession as Grand Master, which makes his governing total serving more than a year on various positions in the alliance. During his tenure as leader, Theodosius has proudly lead Knights Templar through series of challenges, especially early in his term, changes and reforms (including the last internal system reform happening now), community and alliance growth, as well as in 3 wars. We give respect and thanks for his diligent service and community work done for Knights Templar thus far.
In his stead he has decided, in concurrence with the opinions of the government, to appoint the current Grand Chancellor, Keegoz, to take up his mantle. Keegoz has been serving exemplary in the government of Knights Templar for almost a year now, and all of us in the Knights Templar believe he will do many great things and usher in a new era of prosperity for our alliance. We believe that he will carry on the important work with utmost devotion that is now entrusted to him by our outgoing leader.
In addition to Keegoz’s appointment as the new Grand Master of the Knights Templar, we are also promoting previous government and new members into our new government line-up. Previous Chancellor Vince McMahon (that’s me!) is now being promoted to Grand Chancellor, or Keegoz’s former post. Grand Master Theodosius has stepped down from his role, but has decided to remain within the Knights Templar government, and has decided to take on the mantle of Grand Almoner. Haydon is now being promoted to Grand Seneschal thanks to his exemplary work despite his young nation age. Grand Marshal Horsecock has chosen to remain at his post.
Additionally, due to the departure of Lower Government officers to higher posts, the Lower Government spots are being filled with new members. The new Almoner position is being filled with one of our older members Brittain. Rimski, who has so far served in the ET Government is now fulfilling his new duties as Seneschal, while TheRebelMan continues his duties as Marshal.
The New Government
Grand Master Keegoz
Grand Seneschal Haydon
Grand Chancellor Vince McMahon
Grand Almoner Theodosius
Grand Marshal Horsecock
Chancellor Vince al-Assad
Additionally, with aforementioned changes going into the effect as of this day, we use this opportunity to thank the now retired government members Whisper (IA), Bagrationi (IA) Vladamir Putin (Econ), Xavier Renarus (Econ), Flavius Stilicho (IA). Enjoy your retirement, gentlemen, because you have deserved it.
As many of you may have noticed, we have been merging ET into KT in-game. Esquire Templar project, under its own name has lived for little more than a year now. In the recent restructure, it has been decided that it would be better if the ET project integrates directly into the Knights Templar core system. Removing the extra bureaucracy, shutting down the open doors policy, helping newer members (Squires) feel more integrated and part of the community and introduce the useful traits of ET project into Knights Templar core system, are just some of the reasons for doing this change. Nonetheless there were pros to this concept, and as tough as it was, Esquire Templar has produced dozens of graduates over the months, and over 20 battle-hardened tough newbies that proved their worth in the recent conflict.
And now a little message from our sponsors: Myself. Hi, I’m Vince McMahon, the Knights Templar’s new Grand Chancellor. Initially I was promoted to Chancellor way back in October of 2017 by Horsecock, mainly to break my balls. After a certain amount of time in the role, I eventually decided to personally step down from the position due to its interference in my studies, as I go to college and have to balance this game and my personal life. However, I decided to step up to the plate once more, and I’ve been back as Chancellor for the past two months. Now that Keegoz is taking his place as Grand Master of the Knights Templar, I’m going to take his original place as Grand Chancellor. I do intend to make some new friends in other alliances, and I hope to do well in my new job, and serve my alliance well.
So, for a tl;dr, Theodosius is stepping down as Leader of KT and Keegoz is taking his place, Esquire Templar has served its purpose and is being reorganized back into the Knights Templar, and the KT government has a new line-up.
