The Knights of the Livonian Order are depicted routing the field following a conference. They were invited by representatives of Novogrod to attend a debate named "Christianity – Religion of Peace". The heated debate led to disagreements on three points: 1. Who is more peaceful, Novogrod or the Livonian Order 2. which group obeys the true will of God 3. which cross shape is better. This in turn led to a battle and centuries of armed conflict. The debate is considered to have been won by Novogrod, leading by approximately 7000 kills.

Those are the tectonic knights ?

No. The Order of Knights Tectonic is shrouded in secrecy to such an extent, that many historians do not even realise they existed. I would love to depict Tectonic knights one day. Sadly, two things prevent me from doing that, lack of free time and the aforementioned secrecy. It is virtually impossible to find visual references, since nobody knows what they looked like. 
This illustration depicts Teutonic knights.

As a christian, this description makes me incredibly sad.
I love the armor and clothing they wore, but man.. They really didn't get the message of peace and love that christianity holds..

Well, this is what it's all founded on. Crazy men wielding swords, hungry for power!

Well no, somewhere in the course of history some people took it the wrong direction. It didn't start out like that.
