Overview

Throughout their stormy history the Teutonic Knights of Germany have always been the most controversial brotherhood ever to call themselves 'Knights of Christ'.They were the most warlike of the religious orders, and this is reflected in the architecture they left behind. In contrast to the Templars who are remembered for their churches, the Teutonic memorials are the magnificent brick-built castles they built as a result of their conquest of Prussia between 1230 and 1380. Many of these dramatic fortresses still exist today in what is now Poland and provide a unique example of an architectural style that closely reflects the nature of the Order.

Several albums are dotted on end tables all around the room. Comfortable chairs are placed next to each end table. There are also shelves apon shelves of picture frames housing photos of Lightningstar, Sweetberry, Creekstar, Ninjastorm, Finn, Mudstar's little sisters Hawkface and Cloudheart, and many others. The walls are painted to look like the clearing in Scarlet Letter first result. Trees bordering a large, grassy clearing with wildflowers dotted all around. The floor is a spring green plush carpet.
