Who Are We?

The Crimson Order (TCO) is a collection of adult game enthusiasts that has endured for over 12 years, through multiple games. We are influenced heavily by our many active and prior service members, and as such, have created a very structured and cohesive guild that allows for maximum opportunity for members to advance through their own merits. "Guild Drama" is put down with extreme prejudice, as all of us are adults who do this in spite of our jobs, not as our jobs, as is the case in some other guilds. These reasons, along with a strict spiritual adherence to our core principles, have given TCO lasting power that transcends pixels on the screen, and truly has become a collection of friends.

The Crimson Order is historically known for our focus on military operations (PvP, AvA activities). TCO will be very active in capturing and holding territory in any game we participate in. Due of the extent of operations in any PvP game, we are looking for strategic partners in other guilds.

The Crimson Order will also be aggressively pursuing PvE content, and will be actively engaging edge content where availible in all of our game chapters.

Why Join The Crimson Order?

  • Military friendly - many of our leaders and members are active or prior military.
  • Proven history and staying power - The Crimson Order is not a fly by night guild and has continuously existed for more than ten years in various games while other guilds folded and closed up shop.
  • Highly structured - we have a structured top-down military organization. When you join, you won't just be in an amorphous blob of members who are left to their own devices.
  • Awesome environment - when you join The Crimson Order, you are joining a community of fellow gamers. Our members say they keep coming back to TCO for our community.
  • 18+ community - we only accept adult members.
  • Anti-drama - we don't tolerate drama or power plays.

Our Core Values

Our values define who we are, what we strive for, and where we go in the future. All members of TCO are expected to live, breathe, and act in accordance to these values.

Duty. Honor. Respect. Dignity. Courage. Innovation. Adaptability. Maturity. Distinction.

Our Vision

TCO's vision today builds upon on our past strengths with a focus on providing the best possible experience for our members in the present and into the future.

Our vision is to provide member focused leadership, strong organization, open two-way communication, service to our online community, and a fun and supportive environment. The Crimson Order will strive for excellence in all that it does.

Our History

If we don't know where we came from, how do we know where we are going?

The concept of The Crimson Order began in 2003 when several individuals came together with a common vision and direction for a new organization in Star Wars Galaxies. The ideals of member focused leadership, a clear cut and strong military style structure, open flow of communication, and our core values.

These leaders formed The Crimson Order, which also became known as the 1st Battalion of the 209th Stormtrooper Regiment. The Crimson Order quickly grew to prominence on its server, leading several major military campaigns and bringing together one of the largest alliances seen in the game. The SWG branch of TCO closed up shop in 2011 along with the final server shutdowns.

In 2010, the Crimson Order opened a branch in Star Wars: The Old Republic (TOR). TCO again focused on community building and partnering with other guilds in game. The TOR branch of TCO also became known for its activities in open world PvP.

Other branches of TCO have seen service in the Matrix Online (beta testing), World of Warcraft, EvE Online, Tabula Rasa (beta testing), Age of Conan, and Star Trek Online.  More recently, we have been active in The Elder Scrolls Online, ArcheAge, Destiny, Life is Feudal, Fallout 4, Repopulation, Star Citizen, Star Wars Battlefront, and The Secret World.

Our Organization

Our focus is to have a fully functioning, independent force in any multiplayer game where we participate. We will cover all aspects of combat, command, training, information, crafting, supply, and dominance of the entire globe.

TCO is organized based on a slightly modified military structure but in line with the lore of each game where we participate.  We have a clear chain of command led by the Guildmaster of The Crimson Order. We use the tried and true structure of Company/Platoon/Squad to make up the backbone of our organization. We also have other specialist detachments that will focus on various tasks. The entire structure is constantly reviewed to maximize efficiency.

Promotions in TCO are earned through hard work, talent, and determination. Corruption and nepotism have no place in TCO.

Our Leadership

The leadership of TCO has over twenty two years of combined experience leading guilds and organizations for a large variety of games and in real life as well. Our command staff is focused on serving the needs of their members first, not on expanding their personal power or fame.

At the top of the structure are the Guildmaster and the Chapter Leaders who provide the strategic level leadership, advice, and counsel for the Crimson Order;s operations. The Chapter Leaders are supported by Company Commands and Platoon leadership which provide more of the tactical leadership and driving the day-to-day affairs of the Order.

The Crimson Order places a lot of emphasis and responsibility on its lower level leadership. As these leaders are usually in the trenches tending to the needs of their troops, they play a vital role in building the Order. Therefore, we are constantly striving to find and to help develop and train new leaders.
