The Templars are a faction in Wystmere, comprised mainly of paladins. They control a majority of the 73 seats on the Council and therefore control the city of Wystmere for the most part. They maintain a cityguard and are known for being exceptionally strict with the law. They are opposed in some respects by their rivals, the Guard. They are often referred to as “whitecloaks” in reference to that part of their uniform.
