I am a warhammer and warhammer 40k fan for many years. Me and some friends also play the W40k-RPG Dark Heresy. For one of our campaigns I developed the lost order of the Crusaders, a progeny of the Black Templars. They got lost in a heavy warp storm at the beginning of the Angevine Crusade. Now, some thousand years later, they fought their way back and they wanted their promised reward. The (former) insignificant dessert planet of Scyntilla as their new resindence. It was fun to watch my players trying to convince the order that Scintilla is not available any longer. Did you know, that Space Marines are a bit tenacious and that they don't like sentences like "But now this is the home of the sector governor and you guys weren't around while the Imperial Army and the White Scars conquered this sector for the Emperor! What have you done the last two thousand years? A sightseeing trip through the Halo stars?"
...this reeks of badass
Their sigil seems... heretical!
Yes, seems so . My players had to decide, if the order was corupted during the long time without contact to empire. This selfmade order has developed many strange behaviours. For example they cover their armores with many ornaments, that are given to them as honour marks by their master of the order. All this ornaments are made of gold are related to heroic deeds done by the individual space marine. Some old armores appear to be gold rather than white, their origin colour. The sigill of the order is on the right pauldron. It is a golden cross with black outlines on white ground. On the left pauldron their is the sign of the company. This ones shows the sign of the first company, the Justifieres. They bring the blind rage of the emperor to enemy of the empire.
