Knight Quest

The Mission

Archmagus Albertus of Tremere, Praeco of Transylvania, requires magi to carry out the following mission.

To investigate the current situation concerning the Teutonic Knights in the Tribunal. Firstly, to determine their short- and long-term goals and the methods and actions they intend to take to achieve those goals; secondly to recommend a course of action for the Tribunal to follow in response to the Knights; and thirdly (where appropriate) to implement that course of action.

It is important that the Code of Hermes is not broken or even perceived to be broken in any way.

Albertus offers payment in the form of any combination of vis, books about Arts and associated Hermetic abilities, or permanent settlement within the Tribunal for successfully completing the mission. There is an upfront payment of 100 pawns of vis to be shared between participating magi for attempting the mission. The size of the final payment will depend on the degree of success achieved.

Additionally, magi conducting this mission will have the option of joining the oppidum (read the tribunal book for the real meaning of this word, but it represents ‘group’ or ‘camp’) of Kezdo Valaz on a temporary basis.
The benefits of doing so are: there will be magi and extra resources available to call upon if needed; the downside would be: their leaders (Essedarius and Leona of Tremere) would be entitled to interfere and issue orders.


In 1211, King Andrew II of Hungary invited the Teutonic Order into part of his country. Their remit was to occupy the ‘Burzenland’ and defend it against incursions from the Cuman Confederacy.

The knights, under their leader Brother Theoderich, set about building villages for saxon settlers and constructing forts to protect and control the territory. By 1220, they have 5 large stone castles (centred around Kronstadt (modern name of Brasov)) and numerous wooden & earthworks forts.

They appear to be doing a solid job for King Andrew.

However, the Order of Hermes is worried about their presence in the heartland of the Transylvanian Tribunal (and House Tremere). The Pope has charged the Teutonic Order with investigating heresy and diabolism. They are already executing any heretics they find within the Burzenland and are starting to interfere within the rest of Hungary; King Andrew has been requested by the Pope to rid his Kingdom and the surrounding lands of members of the ‘Patarian Heresy’ and is gathering knights for a ‘minor crusade’ – the Teutonic Order will certainly wish to participate.

Therefore, Archmagus Albertus Tremeris, Praeco of Transylvania, invites magi to investigate the Teutonic Order on his behalf.
