Western kings and Ottoman sultans are embroiled in a blood-soaked game of tug-of-war over the holy land, its sacred sites and hallowed relics. Exploiting the chaos that now grips the land, a devious secret society emerges, hell-bent on plundering the riches of war-ravaged Jerusalem. The dark knights of this shadowy order - called the "Knights Sphaera" - search for one relic with particular zeal - an ancient glass orb said to impart its bearer with immortality and god-like powers. Seeking to rule and enslave all the peoples of the earth for eternity, the Knights Sphaera stop at nothing to gain their prize. They spill blood, desecrate holy sites, usurp kings and leave sorrow, wailing and death in their wake. In response, a clandestine union of skilled, stealthy assassins rises - the "Order of the Bronze Eagle." Determined to foil the Knights' plans for everlasting world domination at all costs, the Eagle assassins lurk in shadow and creep in darkness, silently slaying their opponents with easy-to-conceal yet deadly swords, crowned by bronze eagle pommels and bronze winged guards. The Order calls these savage blades "talons." The assassins of the order summon thee - whilst thou answer? Answer the call - order the Assassin's Talon Sword today!
