Runic Knights was founded by Meldor the same day many adventurers suddenly appeared in the Shire, Ered Luin, and Bree-town. No one is quite sure what caused this influx of adventurers, though I've heard some call it "Beta".

Not much is known about Meldor, except that he came from a land called Brittania, ruled by Lord British. He spent many years there under the tutelage of Maiya, a leader among leaders on the Atlantic Shard. From what I have been able to gather, Meldor was a trusted commander among Maiya's forces, but he heard the call of Middle Earth, and struck out on his own to heed that call, and Runic Knights was reborn in Middle Earth. From the letters we have found that Meldor wrote, we have found that in his original homeland, the date was reckoned as March 21, 2007. In vain I have searched to determine what this relates to in our reckoning, but as it dates back so long before my birth, I have been unsuccessful to date. Anyway...

Meldor soon proved himself to be a capable leader, surrounding himself with others of like mind (including his Second in Command, Hestah) as he ventured out to assist Gandalf in his mission, helping to rid Middle Earth of the dangers it now faced. Nearly immediately, hundreds of fellow-adventurers sought to join Meldor's kinship, and it was quickly as full as the member log-book could handle. Each time he expanded the log-book, more fine adventurers would join, and it would fill again.

His dream for the Runic Knights was a kinship up of all races (Elf, Man, Dwarf, and Hobbit) and all ages - from the youngest adventurous hobbit to the wizened Dwarfs and Elves. All were made welcome and the kinship flourished. While adventurers come and go, our roster currently holds between 1,200-1,500 members, from those just starting out on their adventure to others who have faced the balrog Thaurlach, the dragon Draigoch, and even Saruman himself and lived to tell the tale.

Summary:
The Officer Structure of RK is meant to be very transparent,
all officers must be on a team, all teams are in groups, all
groups have forums, and all forums have moderators. Each
Team forum has moderators who are also Offciers /
NCO's for that team. There are no offciers that not
associated with a team....
Here is the offcier structure

The Executive Team is responsible for advising the Senior Officers and passing its decisions along to them.

Dawin - Leader of the ExecTeam, The Executive Team is responsible for advising the Senior Officers and passing its decisions along to them. Dawin along with Bezmir also run the 411 Team has been formed to help promote the name of the Runic Knights and disseminate information to the kinship.

Alrod - Leader on the NiteCrew, another representative from Australia, who's daytime is our night time, but does a wonderful job of keeping an eye on things while many of us sleep. He not only represents the ExecTeam, but takes care of Kinchat for very long periods alone, if Hestah and Meldor are not around. Great big Kudo's if you see him, tell him thanks, and maybe one day we'll get a supporting team around him.. hint hint..

Arcturic - Radio DJ for TDS, resedent friend to all, and a very wise man that we are very honoured to have onour ExecTeam. Very active in game, on the website, thank you for all you do.

Xibonn - Another great friend from the land down under, unfortunately RL killed his comouter for a while, but he is back now but always been very highly visable on the ExecTeam giving valuable input, and helpful guidance. Xibonn has been with us a long time and very valued member of the ExecTeam. Can't way enough about Xibonn and what he has meant to the kinship, very great guy, if you don't know him yet, you should try to get to meet him

Morestone - One of the core members and and strong figures that stood together with RK, Leylas and Hestah to form the first RK Hard Core Raiding group. At one time know as HC1 and HC2, and later renamed Runic Raiders RR1 RR2 RR3 RR4 etc was there at the beginning, and stood strong during the rocky early days. A very wise and valuiable member of our ExecTeam

Cassiuss - Leader of the 411-WelcomeWagon Team and quickly has become a very valuable part of our new user RK experiewnce by making sure each and ever new member gets an email, and a personalized hello. He has future plans which will inlcude mentoring that are now in the works...

Pax - Acting Leader CraftersTeam while Rewwer attends to some real life stuff. Pax has stepped up to be Rewwers right hand man and to implement all the goals and visions Rewwer so grandly came up with way back when. Always a joy to see him online, and is always there to be helpful if needed.

Phantomghost - Leader 911 This guy is amazing, he probably has one of the largest teams, and one of the hardest new jobs of 2008. Not only did he successful take over and run with 911-Help, but he added his own touch to it with 911-Charity, and is one of the few RK members besides Taolin/Taoman (who I work with) that I have ever met from our kinship in real life. A very wonderful person, doing a very difficult job, and making it look easy. Pretty amazing, and nice way to end this thread

Taki - The wonderful Taki, who is loved more, seen more , and weathered more situations, than our most wise and wonderful Taki. She has been intriquetely involved with the 911 team, the 411 team, and most recently promoted to the Ghost Brigade. The voice of reason who is everyones best friend, Taki is always there for us, for me, in our time of need

The Senior Officer group is responsible for handling issues that arise within the kinship.


Hestah: - Leader of SrOfficers, and second in charge 2IC of the kinship is completly in charge when I am away from my keyboard. Living in Australia really helps us to be a true 7/24 kinship. Hestah is not only a great commander, holding great wisdom and patience, he is also a great friend to many, including Meldor, who knows we might not still be here to

Leylas - Director of Raiding, Raids are run on nearly a daily basis. If you want to learn more about raiding or sign up for one of the raids, contact a Raid Team member. Leylas has been a great friend, advisor, and is by far the best raid leader, I have ever met. He runs the hardest team in the kinship, with the most leaders, and most members, as if it were easy. which I know its not

Chavo - Director of the Recruiting Team and creator of the guidelines theRunic Knights members folow, as recruits and subsequently members. As the kinship has matured this group has been less active, because recruitment pretty much happens by word of mouth, but in the beginning, all officers came from the recruiting team, so not only is he a great recruiter, but great mentor as well.

Danford - Founding Officer, and my in game Great Grandaughter, Is one of the most special people I know, and been a wonderful part of making RK what it is today. She is and has always been the shining light that makes us all smile.

Dawin - Leader of the ExecTeam, The Executive Team is responsible for advising the Senior Officers and passing its decisions along to them. Dawin along with Bezmir also run the 411 Team has been formed to help promote the name of the Runic Knights and disseminate information to the kinship.

Taoman - Original Successor to RK, who now plays a more passive role in the game, but still plays often. He was here with me on Day1, and is just as responsible for RK being here today as Meldor is.

Odorfo - Everyone Loves Odo, Leader of the Ghost Brigade. How can you not? He is always there for you, with a wise word, a kindred hand, and is just a joy to be around. Odorfo is not only an RK founder, but the Leader of the Ghost Brigade. These are the officers/members who do everything, and ask for nothing in return. They do a little recuiting, a little raiding, and little helping of kinmembers, and generally just doing whatever needs to be done at the time.

Rewwer - Director of the Crafting Team. The Crafting Team was put together to help aspiring RK crafters with resources to gain in crafting and have them reach GM faster, to help all levels in RK with attaining elite items crafted by GM craftsman with in the Kin.

Tylann - Leader of the KinMoms. If there is ever a problem, whether you are an offcier a member, or even the leader, she is always there for you with a patient ear, kindred heart, and wise and thoughtful recommendation. She is also part of the 411 Welcoem Wagon Team which makes sure new members get of to a nice start.

Will- Founding Officer and wiseman of our group. Will very quietly watches what we do as SrOffciers, never gets caught up in the moment, reals us in when we go off topic, and most of the time think he is the wisest of us all.

Dildagen - one of the newer members of the SrOfficer group, but deifnately has a great head on his shoulder, able to step back and look at situations, analyze them for best result, and definately keeps us smiling all the time. A great addition to an already great team.

Tabithah - our newest member of the SrOffcier group, and plays a part in the 911-Charity group, 911-Help and is the passed has played large role in 411 and the ExecTeam before her promotion. A very caring heart, loved by all, always trying to what is most right and best for the kinship. I look at her and can honestly say, this is what I was thinking when I started the kin RK

joel really needs a new job its only monday mate wasnt ur weekend fun

the one i had planned was going to be but i just dream about that now

when u get glum u should always do one thing

*whistles*

Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad,
Other things just make you swear and curse,
When you're chewing life's gristle,
Don't grumble,
Give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
[whistle]
Always look on the light side of life.
[whistle]

If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle.
That's the thing.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
[whistle]
Always look on the right side of life,
[whistle]

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.
So,...

Always look on the bright side of death,
[whistle]
Just before you draw your terminal breath.
[whistle]

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true.
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life.
[whistle]

Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!
[whistle]
Always look on the bright side of life!

...after talking to Gandalf about the mysterious glowing of my [Staff of Knowledge], and how the ruby would brighten even the darkest of rooms when it began to glow for no reason. He told me the story of the 5 kings and how there direct bloodline ran with in the kin called the Runic Knights. When I asked who they were he gave me a list and the first of many clues..

King of Rohan
Growing up in Rohan has always been a mystery to me because I was adopted and raised within a military family. My father is a great captain in The Rohirrim and my mother is a tailor by profession. When I ask about my real parents I have been told that I was given to my parents by a very old man with a great white beard with specific instructions my parents had to follow. They said this old man was a great friend of the family and asked my father to raise me and teach me all forms of combat and leadership so one day I may join my father in combat in The Rohirrim. My father has only told me of one clue about the old man with the beard, and that was: “He is part of an order called the Runic Knights”. And my father being a man of honor has never told me more than this about my parents and my past. My mother knows less about the order and trains me in reading, writing, armor and diplomacy. I continue with training and on my own I start to research this strange order of the Runic Knights in all the books and scrolls I can get my hands on. At first I find little clues and legend of battles in middle earth that speak of such an order. As I grow older I start to venture further and further away from home on my quest to figure out who is part of this great order of the Runic Knights. I discover some incredible tales of Runic Knight hero’s called from all over the land to do battle for good and just causes. I begin to feel honored to be part of such an order even by my father saying that a Runic Knight delivered me to my parents. I am really excited to find that this order contains not only Men, but great Elves, Dwarves, and even Hobbits. It seems the very best warriors of middle earth not just Rohan are in this great order and I need to train even more now so one day I can start to look for more clues in distant lands to see where I come from. Today I have learned my father has been critically wounded on the battlefield while saving his men from an Orc attack in the western fields. I arrive at his tent to find him holding on for dear life wanting to talk with me before he passes. He tells me “Son I must tell you something before it’s too late for me. You must go to Rivendale and search out the Runic Knights and inform them, he is ready. And always remember do everything with Honor” he then closes his eyes and takes one last breath and passes away. My mother is there as well and begins to make final arrangements. She tells me that I must begin my journey and hands me a bag of things for my trip to this place called Rivendale. She also hands me my father sword and says you will need this when you meet the Runic Knights. Just show them this sword and they will direct you to where you need to go while there. In the bag there is food, money, draughts, bandages, and there is a Map of middle earth and I see Rivendale on the map. I begin my journey in my fathers honor to see what my past will become. I will make my family proud one day soon…

Steward of gondor -
Found on the doorsteps of Thorins hall as a young child I was sent to the elf refuge where I was raised, during this time I trained my skills in swordsmanship, until one day a strange man in grey with a long beard came to our village and notice me. As I was the only human child their he stopped and looked at a necklace I was wearing the only link I had to who I really was, unforuntaly I was unable to read what was inscribed on it.
The strange man looked at the inscription and nodded he turned to me and said “u are from Gondor one day u will be needed to help your king also u will meet another man like me who u will help forge a great a kinship.” Confused I nodded as the strange man started to ride away. As he did a book fell from his satchel I ran to pick it up and yell out to the strange grey man he replied, “ study it for u shall need its wisdom.”
I looked at the book on the front all it said was LORE. From that day I studied hard this book he had left me learning its traits. One day a message was given to me from an elf named Elrond he told me to go to achet and deliver the message upon arriving I was ambushed and looked up …………

High elf of elves
Opening my eyes my head pounding with pain not being able to remember who i was or where i came from. Only being a young elf i traveled from town to town till i came on a grat big place called thorins gates. A very nice dwarf family took me in and traied me the way of the sword. One day came when i realize that they had grown old and was taken to the ground of which they were made. Confused i was why has this earth taken the only people i loved from me? I went to the training hall and trained hard then i ever had i broke my only sword. That is when a tall man with a grey robe and a white beard approaced me an took intrest in my medallion. He ask me "where did u get this?" I replied " this is all i have left of my past. when i came here i know not who i was or where i came from." he looked at me and smiled " there are great things to come from u and in time this will all make since!" He handed me a book and said" earn from this there is even a way to make a new better sword to replace your broken one!" I looked down at the book and the book it was titled L.O.R.E. when i looked back up he was gone. I opened the book and startedt to read i found a recipe for a very rare sword called the mirrored sword. I praticed and praticed this recipe till one day i got it right i had made me a new sword. Just as i made it to the training hall with my new pride and joy a high elf named elrond walks up to me and hands me a note. He tells me "you must travel to the far land called achret and deliver this note you must not fail the fate of all may rest on it. With out question i packed my bags and took of on my journey not knowing what is to lies ahead!

King of Thorins Gate
Growing up at Thorin's Gate, I was always in awe of the great Thorin's Hall. It was mostly us Dwarves that lived in this area although sometimes we'd see an elf or human. It was rare to see a hobbit, but they would appear at times too. I always had a longing to travel and ventured at an early age to see what there was outside of Thorin's Gate. One thing that I longed to know of was a chain that seemed to have been always on my neck. It had a medallion with an inscription that no-one seemed able to decipher, not even the wisest of dwarves at Thorin's Gate. Much to my surprise, I happened upon a man in my travels through Rohan. He was tall (but then everybody seems tall to us dwarves) with a pointed hat and gray hair and beard. He noticed the chain on my neck and asked if he could see it. I said yes tall sir, in fact I'm trying to discover the secret to the inscription upon the medallion. Perhaps you could be of service kind sir. The tall gentleman took the chain and medallion and examined it carefully and said you are from the White Mountains, take this book I give you and study it for one day your services will be needed. The cover of the book said LORE and it contained much information useful to me in crafting, traits, battle and more. I studied and eagerly wait to see how it will be used in my future destiny. Later I received a message from Gimli to go to Archet to deliver a message.

Mayor of Shire
Grew up in the Shire, helping on the family farm and occasionally sneaking off into the woods to try to catch sight of the Elves that were rumoured to pass by. One day, while harvesting a particularly bountiful crop of taters, my trowel clinked against something metal. "Well, that's not how a tasty golden Shire tater should sound," I thought to myself as I carefully dug up the strange object. Imagine my surprise when I found it to be a rusted badge. Leaving the crops in the field, and hoping no sneaky Took would carry them off, I ran back home, clutching the badge and trying my best to avoid all the nosey hobbits.

Meldor Waves his wand, over the second cumbling parchment, Again the staff of Meldor Glows, a blinding RED just like it had a few minutes before when we had discovered our first King. Could it be the nobile Joel has discovered a second KING? Slowly I focus in on a blur, then it becomes clearer .....name appears ..... What is that the parchment reveals the second of the royal bloodlines of RK. Hesth [Steward of Gondor ] , Hail and long live.......

Steward of gondor -
Found on the doorsteps of Thorins hall as a young child I was sent to the elf refuge where I was raised, during this time I trained my skills in swordsmanship, until one day a strange man in grey with a long beard came to our village and notice me. As I was the only human child their he stopped and looked at a necklace I was wearing the only link I had to who I really was, unforuntaly I was unable to read what was inscribed on it. The strange man looked at the inscription and nodded he turned to me and said “u are from Gondor one day u will be needed to help your king also u will meet another man like me who u will help forge a great a kinship.” Confused I nodded as the strange man started to ride away. As he did a book fell from his satchel I ran to pick it up and yell out to the strange grey man he replied, “ study it for u shall need its wisdom.” I looked at the book on the front all it said was LORE. From that day I studied hard this book he had left me learning its traits. One day a message was given to me from an elf named Elrond he told me to go to achet and deliver the message upon arriving I was ambushed and looked up …………

A short History, by Meldor

Many years ago in my wandering through Britannia I found myself in a small burnt town of Archet, and among the smoke and the flames found a few kindred friends. We, the elves, the dwarves, the hobbits and man, all fellowed together to find what else existed beyond the city, and the swamp of Mirkwood. We called ourselves the Runic Knights, and we spent year 0 battling the monsaters that lay beyond, but even battled ourselves as we struggled to find our own identity. As Hestah, Xibonn Odorfo and many others can attest to. The growing pains would continue through the first, the second and even the third age of RK, but finally the external and internal battles were won and behind us. Now with the world at peace, Meldor knew his job was done, and it was good. Meldor left the kingdom of the Runic Knights (LOTRO) to the fine and outstanding Dwarf known as Odorfo. My Heroic friend, Hestah (which i must admit, the Runic Knights would not exist today if not for him) will lead the Runic Knights (SWTOR).

None of this could have ever existed without the help of 100s of people I can not begin to mention in a short message, but you know who you are, you will always be remembered as the best of the best, in one of the most significant parts of my life. I wish you all the best, I hope the story, and the legend continues, but just as RK started in Ultima Online in 2001 and run by a deer wise lady named Maiya, and was reborn in middle earth my a frail old man name Meldor, I know this story will continue here in Swtor, and probably just like always will be greater in the next age than it was in the last....

For now, I sail quietly to the west as the 4th age begins.

Thank you,

Meldor
