Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars holds many memories for me. It's a game of mystery, courage, love, and death. It was Broken Sword that taught me History was interesting and full of controversy. This game is the reason my History PhD defense is a month from now. And it's with the help of Charles Cecil I have my dream job — a video game translator career. In 2013 the man let me single-handedly translate Broken Sword 5: The Serpents Curse into Russian, and I'm deeply grateful for that. These were the most intense 100k words of my life. And when people see it in my resume and say, "Man, you worked with Cecil, you might be a pro!", I reply, "Oh, no, I'm just a dedicated fan."
