Knights of the White Lady (KWL) is a kinship on the Landroval server for Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). Our in-game address is 1 High Road, Highdore, Bree-Land. We are a group of mature (18+) individuals who enjoy being in a friendly and close-knit environment, a place where people of all backgrounds and sexual orientations (gay, straight, bi, transgender, gender neutral, etc.) can feel at home.
Knights of the White Lady is LOTRO's largest and best-organized LGBT-friendly kinship. We do not limit recruitment to LGBT people, but we do aggressively enforce an environment that is supportive of them. KWL does not emphasize any certain play style (such as role-playing, raiding, etc.), but is accepting of all play styles.
The kinship is named in honor of Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan.
We chose Eowyn as a role model because of the way she rode to battle pretending to be a man, and had to later "come out" as a woman before defeating the Witch-King of Angmar. KWL's founder thought her bravery to be analogous to how LGBT people often have to hide who they are for a time before accepting themselves and coming out to society. She was therefore considered to be appropriate as the inspiration for the kinship's name.
If you think you might like to join us, feel free to read through our Guild Information section. Our admissions article will guide you through the application process. We hope to see you soon!
"But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Eowyn I am, Eomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him."...the helm of her secrecy had fallen from her...Eowyn it was, and Dernhelm also.
--Eowyn, confronting the Witch-King of Angmar at the Battle of Pelennor Fields (Return of the King, Book Five)
In one week (Sunday March 2nd) I will be purging all characters from the roster who have been inactive for more than 60 days. So, if you have any alts in KWL that you haven't logged in on but want to keep in the roster, please log in on them at least once during this next week.
I want to stress that this is not a punishment. It's simply a way to help keep the Roster current and to know which players are actually active.
ALSO, since I'll also be maintaining the website Roster, I'll take this opportunity to remind everyone to PLEASE make sure that all of your KWL characters are created and added (claimed) to the website Roster! If you need help with how to do this, just ask. There are FAR too many members on the Roster with a blank space where their characters should be!
If the purge ends up catching one of your alts that you'd like to keep in the kinship, never fear! Just let an officer know in-game and we can always let them back in.

Long have I desired the opportunity to praise the achievements of My blooded minions, My champions of the Dark! Commander Puulgar, Defiler of Hope, you are one of My most valued officers. Your dedication to eliminating the putrid sweetness and foolish optimism of the Free Peoples is an example for us all. You are a true Blessing of Darkness, and I am honoured to have you at my side! ~ The Wight Lady
