So I did the stupid mistake of choosing the normal Warband recruitment system, so now I can't recruit Templar/Hospitallers/Teutons from towns, unlike from the lance recruitment system. How do I recruit these guys from towns? I'm playing as a Templar and it sucks to see that the army following my character are ****** Latin knights.

Sigh. To anyone having this problem, there's a solution which is good, but also bad. You can recruit Templars/Hospitallers/Knights of St. Lazarus/ etc. etc. by talking to the priest in your village's manor (after purchasing him, of course) and asking him to have an order visit the monastery. It costs a hefty amount of gold (10000 denars). But only one type of order can be called per manor. And you cannot change once you've chosen.

Its alright, I like the setting and the map layout, but needs more troop variations.
