The Crimson Order

Who are we?

The Crimson Order is a collection of adult game enthusiasts that has endured for over 10 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 CO lasting power that transcends pixels on the screen, and truly has become a collection of friends.

The Crimson Order focuses primarily on military operations (such as open world PvP, alliance vs alliance content, and territorial control). While our focus is on our military operations, we do pursue other content. We have traditionally had a strong supportive crafter base, and do go after high end PvE content.

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 the CO 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 the CO are expected to live, breathe, and act in accordance to these values.

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

Our vision

The COís 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, and will aim to become the premier Ebonheart military organization in the game.

Our history

If we donít 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 the CO 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. The CO again focused on community building and partnering with other guilds in game. The TOR branch of the CO also became known for its activities in open world PvP.

Other branches of the CO 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.

Our organization

Our focus is to have a fully functioning, and independent army. We will cover all aspects of combat, command, training, information, crafting, supply, and dominance of the entire globe.

The CO is organized based on a slightly modified military structure but in line with the lore of the Elder Scrolls. We have a clear chain of command led by the Grand Master 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 the CO are earned through hard work, talent, and determination. Corruption and nepotism have no place in the CO.

Our leadership

The leadership of the CO 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 Grand Master and the Chapter Masters who provide the strategic level leadership, advice, and counsel for the Crimson Orderís operations. The Chapter Masters 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.
