Welcome to the Knights Of Eriador

Who are the Knights Of Eriador?

The Knights Of Eriador was founded late April 2007.

We are a role-playing kinship based on the Laurelin server of The Lord of the Rings Online. In addition to role-playing we take part in questing and raiding to enjoy the mechanics and content of the game.

We have 4/5'ths of a whole Housing Neighborhood which we RP as our village, with our Kin hall, a Tavern, Shops, Trading Halls, A Library, Farms, Guesthouses, a Barracks, a jail and of course our personal houses.

We are not of a typical militaristic build - but there exists of course a chain of command and a code of honor within the order (First of all IC, but also OOC). All members are in general seen as equals.
This we feel open up for more personalized and versatile role-play without breaking the role-play purpose and conduct of the Knighthood.

The Knighthoods characters are not all warriors - we want all kind of people in our Knighthood. Farmers, Merchants, Accountants, Scholars and any kind of people with all sorts of vocations. All members who wants to follow a more militaristic path, can obtain the title of Knight of the order - If they wish to that is. If you prefer to RP a common person supporting the order, you follow a non-militaristic path.

In times of War though - even the non-militaristic characters of the order can be called upon as a reserves force in the battlefield. (a IC RP feature)

Our kinship and our characters represent a Knighthood that take pride in helping out where ever they are needed along side of the Free People of Middle Earth - It being in more humanitarian and sanitary aspects, or keeping the roads safe, salvaging arts and texts of lore and history, defending the nearby villages from bandit raids - patrolling the lands of Eriador, or joining with other forces to march to battle.

The Knighthood of the Knights Of Eriador holds these ranks:

- Recruits = Squires (Militaristic path) and Commoners (Non-militaristic path)
- Members = Knights (Armed force) and Oathsworn (Non-militaristic)
- High Nine Advisor = 6 officers elected from both Knights and Oathsworn.
- High Nine Of Preservation = 3'rd in command & General of the Reserves.
- High Nine Of Inspiration = Successor of the order & General of the Squires
- Grandmaster = Leader of the Order & General of the Knights

The 6 Advisors, 3'rd in command, Successor and Grandmaster form the Council of the Knights of the High Nine - who lead and set the course of the Order.

You can read more about our structure on our Kinship Structure tab.

We welcome all levels of RP’ers from beginners to experienced veterans. We were all new to RP at one time or another, so why not be a beginner here with us!

We guide and instruct our members to achieve the highest possible standards of Roleplaying, and as with any skill, this can be learned over time. We operate a mentoring scheme to help all recruits find their feet.

– our only real requirements for new members is that aside from a willingness to RP and learn how to RP better, they be mature and friendly.

We are above all else, above even our focus on RP, a kinship who helps each other; a group of friends who enjoy the game together, thrive upon a sense of community and camaraderie, and can share a laugh and a joke as well as loot and resources. But if you come expecting free handouts, power-leveling of your character, and items without helping in return, then this is not the kinship for you.

You can find our kinship and some of our characters on the Laurelin Archives site as well - where some of our stories are posted.

Greetings all - Knights, Allies as well as Visitors!

For those who don't know me, I am Arangilas Bloodrage - or Christian Tornholm-Lehn which is my RL name. I am a Game Dev, SFX and Music Composer. I am also the Founder and 1st Grandmaster of the Knights of Eriador.

I have just recently released the Official Soundtrack for the Medieval Sandbox MMORPG "Life is Feudal" - Which I am the music composer of.
The soundtrack consists of Medieval/Celtic inspired music, wrapped in with cinematic elements.

Here are a few samples from the "Life is Feudal" Soundtrack:

- Feast at Solstice - Life is Feudal Soundtrack -
- Life is Feudal - Life is Feudal Soundtrack -
- Ambush at Dawn - Life is Feudal Soundtrack -

Life is Feudal Website

A fun fact around this is that some of the themes and melodies from the "Life is Feudal" Soundtrack originally appeared to me a good few years ago, when I was thinking of making a Knights of Eriador Adventures Album. And while I were creating the music for "Life is Feudal" I started reliving so many characters, RP situations, Raids and Stories I have been so lucky to be a part of during all my years as leader and active member of the Knights of Eriador.

I am now announcing that I will be making the "Knights of Eriador Soundtrack" for our 10 year anniversary 30 april 2017

The album will be a dedication to all the people who have been part of the Knighthood along with those who have interacted with us throughout the years since the Knights of Eriador was founded with the release of Lotro - and up til today with the current members and the allies of KoE.

You all ROCK!

If you find yourself visiting my YouTube channel, and listening to the music - feel free to subscribe and you will be notified when I release new music for the games I am composing music for - and eventually also the full "Knights of Eriador" Soundtrack.

If you are new to this site, or just curious about the Knights of Eriador - hand in your application, or be sure to contact one of our members in game for some welcomed RP.

Thank you for your attention, and your support!
