The Black Templars are a Loyalist Second Founding Space Marines Chapter derived from the Imperial Fists' gene-seed and their Primarch, Rogal Dorn. Their origin can be traced back to the Imperial Fists’ defence of Terra during the Horus Heresy. Since that time, the Black Templars have been on the longest Crusade the Imperium of Man has ever known to prove their loyalty to the Emperor of Mankind. They are not a Codex Astartes-compliant Chapter and maintain a very different Chapter structure and Chapter culture than is the norm amongst most Astartes Chapters.
I orignally got this game in the Half-Life Platinum Collection, a retail pack. The retail I had was made before STEAM was invented so I never got the power of steam, or the realization it existed, until later on in life. It was a great game and still is. This game is an original classic and the beginning of a great series. If it wasn't for this game we wouldn't have the HL2 series which means if we wouldn't have GMOD, DOD, CS:S, etc.. I would recommend it to everybody.
This is one of my most favorite games EVER. I love the factions, the story, the atmosphere, the guns, and the characters. I hope to buy the English version of the book around the holidays and read the originalt story. (Written 2012)
