While adding Black Templars as the separate race, this mod does not change the original gameplay style of Soulstorm and compatible with others race-mods. The mod brings Emperor's Wrath upon His Enemies, the Black Templars Chapter, whose zealous marines prefer close combat over ranged warfare.
The public beta-3 release is uploaded at October 2011
