Knights of the White Lady Kinship: Updated!
Knights of the White Lady (KWL) is a large, long-established kinship that lives on the Landroval server for Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). We are a group of mature (18+) individuals who enjoy being in a relaxed, friendly and close-knit environment. Our founders’ goal was to create a place where people of all backgrounds and sexual orientations (gay, straight, bi, transgender, gender neutral, etc.) can feel at home.
Membership is not limited to LGBTQ people, of course, but we do actively enforce an environment that is supportive of all of our members.
The Knights of the White Lady doesn’t emphasize any particular play style (such as role-playing, raiding, end game, etc.), but welcomes all play styles. We have an active Creep Tribe known as the Knaves of the Wight Lady, and a newly formed RP group called The Order of the Blue Knights.
Our kinship is named in honor of Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan.
We chose Eowyn as a role model because she is a strong individual who was determined to live the life she chose. She rode to battle pretending to be a man, and had to later "come out" as a woman before defeating the Witch-King of Angmar. KWL's founders see her bravery as a parallel to how LGBTQ people often have to hide who they are for a time before accepting themselves and coming out to society. Lady Eowyn is therefore considered to be a fit and true inspiration for the kinship's name.
