    The Crescent Order is recruiting

    Here's a little about us:

    Who: The Crescent Order. We think of ourselves as a casual-friendly kinship that also participates in raids and other large-scale events. Real life comes before gaming in all situations, and we understand that not everyone can be online all the time.

    The majority of TCOers are in their mid-20s or older, but applications are judged based on the maturity of the applicant more so than their age. We also have several members who are relatives of one another or are significant others so there is a strong sense of family to be found in our kinship.

    What: We are a multi-game guild which has been around for over a decade, so you can rest assured we not only know how to play MMOs and enjoy them, but we also know how to retain a happy, active membership. We were originally formed for Star Wars Galaxies (SWG), playing on the Chilastra server and, over the years, have branched out into other games including, most recently, SWtOR. In LotRO, meanwhile, we are one of the few Firefoot kinships that was created during open beta which are still going today and currently sit at Rank 10. We have longevity in LotRO and as a guild overall.

    When: Most of our members playing LotRO are based in the US and, of that number, a slight majority are east coasters. We do have quite a few west coasters, however, and several overseas members, not to mention shift-workers and some students. As a result, there always tends to be a body of TCO people logged onto the server.

    Where: All over Middle Earth! Although the sweet-spot for members tends to be level 50-75 these days, we have many members who enjoy playing alts so, at any given time, it's possible to see TCO from the newbie areas right through to Moria, Mirkwood and Isengard. Never been there? Let us take you there. We have a Kinhall in the Falathlorn homesteads, with member homes in that neighborhood as well as elsewhere.

    Why: Our philosophy is to have fun in-game, whilst maintaining a mature disposition, befitting a group of people who are mostly aged in their mid 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. Although we have some members with an interest in raiding and PvMP, they are balanced by just as many members who are solely interested in the PvE content of LotRO, or even just socialising with a "nice" bunch of like-minded people who aren't going to hold a grudge if they can't log in every day, or if someone gets lucky with a loot role during questing. That key word again: maturity. We probably cannot be easily categorized in many respects but if someone was to refer to us as a "casual" kinship, we certainly wouldn't object to that. We aren't a group for hardcore LotRO raiders, although we do have enviable numbers and do raid with our friends and allied kins.

    How: Assuming you don't have a character name that will break other members' immersion in Middle Earth (like Beerman or DonutChugger or HarriPotta), here's the process:
    1. Register at www.thecrescentorder.com by clicking the "Apply to Guild" link. (If you don't have a GuildLaunch account, you'll need to create one -- you can do this after clicking "Apply.")
    2. Send a PM to Theofrid, letting me know you've applied. I'll get you set up with posting access, and will arrange an in-game kin invite.
    3. Once you have posting access, introduce yourself at our forums!
    4. When it's time to move from "recruit" status to full member, you'll receive our application as a PM at our forums. In most cases, promotion occurs when you've been with us 30 days and have sent in the application. (See the "fine print" below.)


    The Fine Print: During this first month that you are with us, you are regarded as "on probation" with the kinship and while you are treated like a member in-game, you won't have full access to our online forums, which is where the soul of the kinship resides and where all planning and voting occurs. At the end of that month, our officer group will determine whether you're a fit for us and we're a fit for you. If we think everything's OK, we will send you an application form to join us as a full member, which opens up our private forums to you.

    Why the probationary period? At the end of the day, it means that anyone wearing the tag "TCO Member" on our forums has proven themselves as a mature and capable person, able to interact socially with the kin. We have used this recruitment style in numerous MMOs over the past ten years and, time and time again, it has ensured one of the most stable guild experiences in all of online gaming. Just look around and ask yourself how many kinships you can see that have existed for even a year or two, let alone ten.

    We look forward to meeting you either in-game, in this thread or over at our own forums. See you in Middle-earth soon!

    Just letting everyone know that I am back in the game, not as an officer, but as a member ready to have fun in Moria! TCO is still going quite well if anyone is looking for a home where everyone is treated as family

    TCO is still recruiting. We have a number of scheduled events each week that tend to cover a wide range of levels, with Yule festival activities planned this month. If you are seeking a wonderful group of folks to adventure with give TCO a look.

    Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    Welcome to 2009, Firefoot! TCO is still alive and kicking, and still looking for new members to add to our ranks. We're one of the oldest kinships on the server, and one of the few to survive from beta to the present. That must mean we're doing something right!

    Feel free to stop by and check us out (there's a link to our website in the first post of this thread). We're always looking for new friends!

    Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    Still recruiting and doing quite well. As has been stated we're a fairly casual kinship though we manage to do radiance runs, Carn Dum, and other instances fairly regularly. We also do book quests as a kinship on a weekly basis if not more frequently.

    If you're looking for a laid-back, easy-going group of people give us a try.

    Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    TCO has been having a great month, with several members decked out in full Radiance gear, and many others close to acquiring the full set. We've been hitting the Radiance instances with a full kin group three or four times a week (and usually making several runs each time, to spread the gear around). We've also been running Lowbie Nights in the Lonelands and North Downs, getting alts and newcomers past those early books and the Dol Dinen/Fornost quests.

    We remain a casual kinship, dedicated to helping our members with whatever part of the game they enjoy -- whether that be levelling, crafting, raiding, or just hanging out in Middle-Earth with a friendly group of folks. We have a lot of very experienced players, but we're also happy to introduce new players to the game as well. See the original post for a list of officers to contact in-game for more info and an invite!

    Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    Hey hey, decided to post here. Well, wondering if I should check you guys out; let me know if If I should apply; pretty sure I would fit right in :P.

    I have a lvl 60 on Firefoot named Estuvinento and have been playing on and off since release, made mt final comeback with the expansion and do not plan on leaving.

    Ever since the beginning I was in the Diciples kinship, still am. At one point, few months back, I left and joined this huge kinship, forget the name, started with A. That lasted a day, I came back the very next morning . They were really big, with over 100 members on, and really were kinda weird and showed off non stop, was impossible to even ask anything or start a normal chat.

    Why am I looking then? I love Diciples, awesome group of people and fun to chat with. Unfortunately, not too many people get on. When they are on, we rarely get anything going really. As is, on a good night, we probably have JUST enough to run an instance . I currently have 4/6 radiance pieces, have yet to get gloves and shoulders. Have tried to get a group for gloves for ages now, pugs ended up dying pretty fast in FG . I think tomorrow is the day to get gloves though, have it arranged, sort of...hehe

    Anyway, I would not even bother looking as I love the people in the kin, but I feel as if I want a little more. I love questing, love grouping. Love chatting with people and respect everybody. I am by no means uber casual, but I do have limits. Granted, with my buddy getting LOTRO I have been playing a bit much lately, but I plan to cut back. My plan is to try to play most evenings, anywhere from 1-4 hours a night I would say. I really would love nothing more but to raid every now and then, maybe even get a drop or two, hehe. WIth my current kin, I simply do not see anything like that happening. People that are active, well, only a handful actually have most of their radiance pieces. If I was to try and get them to run a raid, they won't even be able to get in.

    Anyway, point being, as casual as they are, some do not care about the radiance pieces, thus won't be able to do the Watcher. I really am attached to the great people I know, but I really do want to expand my game a bit.

    Some info about me:
    Age: 20
    Loc: Colorado
    Time online: Evenings probably from 7pm+
    I do get attached to the people I play with. If I am a fit, I would not go anywhere for a long time. I basically want a friendly/active kinship that does not mind doing things every now and then. I love instancing and would love to raid in the future. Do not mind helping people out and enjoy questing anywhere really. An ideal kinship would be laid back, very cool and would care about their members. They would also want to group up and do things every now and then.

    Think I am in the ballpark? :P Reason I posted here is that I do not want to leave my kin and be dissapointed. I really would hate to let them down and leave again just to come back the day after.

    Hi Igromov! Totally understand your concern about switching kins. If you like, I'll add you to my friends list and we'll try to get you into an upcoming TCO group just so you can meet up with a few of us without having to de-kin first.

    In addition, you can get a good feel for the kind of people we have by registering at our forums (see link in the original post). Feel free to sign up there and take a look -- if you end up not joining TCO, it's no harm, no foul.

    For the record, yep, it sounds like you'd be a great fit for TCO. Looking forward to meeting you in-game.

    Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    Didn't get to finish the conversation this morning, mate.. Very sorry for that. I'm not sure you IM'd me again after my last comment, but it seems my chat filters were kind of screwy.

    If you're still interested in joining, feel free to track me down again or one of our other officers.

    Talking Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    We have a great mix of people, from college students, to soldiers, to parents, to retirees. We also have characters that range from 5-60, including newb friends AND raiding types.


    We love to be kind and helpful to new folk, and we help them learn the ins and outs of the game without them having to feel stupid.
    In our kin, we understand that real life comes first.


    Anyway, just wanted to say, that I love my kin, and the people in it. I feel lucky to be a part of a rare group of helpful and relatively drama-free people. I think there was drama once in 2001, but then we shook hands, solved our differences and mushed lots of bad guys.

    Ding ding ding,

    I think we have a winner

    I'm tripping out because there was a guy blood elf named HarriPotta mage, and he had a human mage called HariPotta

    what was weird was he wished WOW could play music, even saying LOTRO you could jam out, and kept spamming trade with his Hari Krishna and veggie foods.

    *bump*

    Still going strong! Still recruiting! Still helping our members enjoy the game at every level from the Shire to Moria. And, we've recently established a kin Crafting Vault to store mats we can use to gear up our members as they advance through the game.

    Visit the link in the original post, or contact an officer listed at the end of that post, for more info and an invite. See ya in-game!

    I have a burglar that is at lvl 60 and a rune-keeper presently at 42. The previous kin I was in is no longer. I have vent but just so you know I basically only have used in it raids. i am a very shy person and have now been playing for about 18mths. My main tune name is Rosetulip and my lvl 42 is Zeenat. I enjoy helping others with their quests. I am usually on at least twice a week. Do not mind being on a 30 day probation.

    Looked for you guys online today but didnt see anyone on. Is there a certain time you play? I live on the west coast. I am interested in joining!

    Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    We have a majority of folks on in the evenings. We do have some folks that play during the day as well. I would say that after 6:00pm eastern you tend to see more folks on. Hope this helps.

    Cool Re: The Crescent Order is recruiting

    I have a 40 Warden (main toon, Ackillez) and also a 48 Champion Claymor. i have been unable to play for several months and just recently renewed my subscription. i have been looking for a kin with ppl who are actually on. not one made up of 10 ppl with 3 alts each lol been there and it makes for no real questing. i have registered on the TCO forum link from the first post. this kin looks like something i would like to be a part of and contribute to. i play almost everyday and am looking for fun ppl to quest/grind with. my goal is to get into raiding with my warden for end-game as i have not done any raiding. pm me in game if there is still recruiting going on.
    thanks for consideration

    Hello Ackillez,
