Red Templars[edit]

Through infomining, it can be ascertained that the Talos Cult presented in Morrowind were originally a slightly different group called the Red Templars, who were originated in some RuneQuest campaigns set in Tamriel during Morrowind's early development, run by Michael Kirkbride.[UOL 1] Kirkbride credits Sun Dome Templars of RuneQuest as inspiration.[UOL 1] The Red Templars themselves were a cult of psycho-crusaders within the Imperial Legion who "drank the blood of Talos to get short-term martial shouting powers." The rest of the Legion and Elder Council hated the Red Templars, and so they were shoved off to places like Morrowind.[UOL 1] The Templars were supposedly tied into the chain of command within the Legion, but in truth, the Templars didn't take orders from anyone but themselves.[UOL 2] There was an idea thrown out there during a forum roleplay that the Templars maintained a system of "Blood Dome Temples" across Tamriel, with each Temple being lead by a "Head Red." One such Temple was in Balmora.[UOL 3] During the actual development of Morrowind, the Red Templars concept became the Templars of the Sons of Talos,[UOL 4][nb 1] before inferably being written into the Talos Cult.[2] The armor made for the Templars was eventually retooled for use across the entire Legion, the Morrowind Codex from says this about Templar Armor: "Officers of the Imperial Legion and knights of the various Imperial military orders are privileged to wear this armor. Plate cuirass and greaves and a reinforced steel helm are worn over leather padding and chain. Though heavy and uncomfortable for campaigning, this armor gives excellent protection in melee combats."[3][4]
