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 LGBTQ-friendly kinship. We do not limit recruitment to LGBTQ 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 LGBTQ 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.
Thanks to Bredhe/Valancy for letting us know about this video, which was captured and posted on YouTube by Kate of The Courserrim!
Here it is in all its glory: the gallery of screenshots from the 2015 Festival of the White Lady as taken by Rhovanael!
What a great day, what a great Festival! As you can see from the screenshots posted here http://bit.ly/1Cz62y4 (courtesy of Valancy; more screenshots from our official photographer Rhovanael will be coming forthwith) we had a HUGE turnout (lots of non-kinfolk wanted to join in the parade ranks!) The Remediators--who should totally win Weatherstock, by the way--outshone themselves yet again, and we even had a nice after party at the kin house with people taking turns playing songs for each other. Some older kin members were spotted in the crowd, too, which is always nice.
Huge thanks to everyone who showed up and helped out, and I know those of you who couldn't make it were there in spirit. I love this kinship!
