Welcome to the Home of The Alliance Kinship

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.


Founded on October 22 2011, 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. 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.

To become a member of the Alliance and battle the evils of Middle-earth, please contact an officer in-game or sign up on our website.

Letter from the Leadership Council:
- Greetings, dear members of The Alliance!

Welcome to this second issue of The Alliance Quarterly! With a few weeks of experience in Update 20 and the great adventures in Mordor coming closer, The Alliance will remain a strong beacon of hope in these dark times of war!

Luckily there are also joyful events which will leave happier memories, like welcoming dozens of new kinnies or our beloved Tabriel drunkenly trying to run over fences, to our (and mostly my own) amusement. One such memory of which we are proud is that we were the host for the "Exploring The Lord of the Rings" event with the Tolkien Professor on March 28!

I'm also very happy to return to my old position of Defender of The Alliance in the Leadership Council now that I have more time for the game again. As always, if I can assist with anything - let me know and I'll see what I can do :)

May the Valar guide you on your travels,
Fordil, Defender of The Alliance -
