The Sword of Baphomet is actually a place in Scotland where natural energy fields cross. Neo-Templars are said to be able to take advantage of that energy, which will also allow them to control other people's mind (it is Khan who says it on the train to Stirling before dying).

Broken Sword: The Shadow Of The Templars[]

The tapestry from Spain, the burning Jacques de Molay and the date thirteen-fourteen point to the Battle of Bannockburn. Tradition has it that the Scots were helped by a shock force of a group of outlawed Templars. They are said to have turned the tide for the Scots against Britain.

Later in the story, George Stobbart and Nicole Collard learn that underground St. Ninian's Church is the place where the Templars are going to use the Sword of Baphomet.

George and Nico succeed to sneak into the Templar’s ceremony officiated by the Grand Master and the Gatekeeper of the Temple. After being discovered by Eklund, they manage to escape and blow the whole place up.


  • During the English Civil War in the mid-seventeenth century this place was used as an arms dump. The tower was the only thing to survive the blast.
