->''Centuries ago, ancient maps bore a simple legend: [[HereThereBeDragons Here There Be Monsters.]] Now [[KnightTemplar we]] have [[VanHelsingHateCrimes driven those monsters from the world]]. Five thousand years of human evolution have led us to where we are today. With technology at our command, we can realize ideals the ancient Enlightened societies could never achieve. While others may [[GoodIsOldFashioned look to the past]] or look away [[CloudCuckooLander into their own delusions]], we have built our Union while [[VisionaryVillain looking to the future]], reinforcing the collective vision of mankind. The world of tomorrow is ours to discover, and with vision and imagination, we will further the evolution of the human race. By basking in the light of reason, victory will be ours.''
