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.

I love the armor and clothing they wore, but man.. They really didn't get the message of peace and love that christianity holds..
