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.
