Introduction

The Alliance is a co-operative kinship, on the Landroval server consisting of all the races of Middle-earth, with members living throughout the world who are looking to enhance their game play with a socially helpful experience. This kinship and leadership is shared by a governing council of Officers. Our adult membership is very diverse, with game founders who are always willing to share experience and knowledge with newer players.

We are an extremely laid-back kin that believes in real life always coming first, and many of our raids and social events are organic in their creation. Simply put: if you're looking for a heavy role-playing, power leveling, intense raiding or grinding kin, we are not for you.

Lore

A billowing of thunder rumbles far to the east, like a Dwarven funeral song, heralding the awakening of an ominous evil. Menacing clouds flow from the Ash Mountains, blanketing all of Middle-earth in a veil of darkness. The Eye of Mordor flares alive, calling forth its sinister allies to bend to their master's iron will. The callous storm reaches out, like fingers of death, belching lightning from the sky, killing hope with each fatal touch. Weak souls run from the wickedness that has touched the land.

Yet some stand against this foul tide, with teeth bared, snarling oaths of victory that spit from their lips like war cries of vengeance. They strive forward with steel and lore, united to conquer and defeat the growing evil of Mordor. Together, we bring peace and justice to our beloved Middle-earth. Together, we are The Alliance.

History

"I began the kin as a Rohirrim kin in 2010... but as it started to seem evident that we were em-massing all sorts of toons I decided to make it a more generic name after about a year. I paid for the name change and it is now The Alliance." - Faral, The Alliance Founder

By Spring of 2014, The Alliance was in a slow decline. In March of 2015 Faral transferred leadership. After a brief attempt to rebuild the kinship, the new leadership decided to leave. By this point The Alliance was broken and only had a few active members on at any given time.

In June of 2015 Faral entrusted leadership of The Alliance to the current leader, Ralia. Under this new leadership the goals of the kinship were refined and major recruitment effort boosted kinship membership to over 100 within three months. As The Alliance grew, additional ranks were added to help maintain the kinship.

Today The Alliance is one of the largest active kinships on the Landroval server with approximately 600 active members from around the world.
