The Templars of Esanta swore a bloody crusade against the arthi of the Lion Emperor. It is known as the Great Mistake and Esanta burned for it. Though the city eventually recovered - and peace was brokered at a steep cost - the city has been overrun by thieves and rogues ever since and the Great Templar of the Templars stands as the citadel to the Thieves Guild. The Order of the Templars has since moved to Entura and fights now against the greenskins coming in across the Desert of Hands. None will forget the Great Mistake.
