The LotD evil empire is still going strong, after 22 years, and the guild will continue its long tradition of gaming excellence into another year. LotD was founded as a Player vs Player (PVP) guild to compete in the massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) genre, and it has enjoyed more than 20 years of MMORPG competitive gaming. Many current and former members of LotD have contributed to its success, and our team based leadership structure has provided a stable organizational environment to grow and develop many generations of guild leaders. LotD always adapts to its gaming environment, and we organize to win year after year and game after game.
MMORPG Landscape 2017
During LotD's first 15 years the MMORPG gaming environment rapidly changed, and quality MMORPG games were a dime a dozen. We would frequently enter a game, spend about a year in it, accomplish the guild objective, and go on to the next game. The MMORPG genre itself, after World of Warcraft (WoW), became very clone intensive, and most games over the next 10 years did everything possible to copy WoW. LotD had to become more selective about the new games it sponsored so that its members could continue to experience that "new game feeling" when we went to something new.
Between 2016-2018 the MMORPG new game offerings have slowed down significantly, and we have seen the rise of "Kickstarter", pay to play, format for new games in development. The days of "free beta access" are essentially over, and we have to spend more time evaluating future games before we issue the call to our members to open their wallets or purses. The net result is that we're sticking with existing games longer, revisiting old fan favorite games, and only identifying games that we have a serious intent to play in the future.
The LotD leadership understands that the slowdown in new game launches creates a slowdown in guild activity. However, we highly encourage our members to create gaming groups, within our community, to enjoy the various MMO/MOBA games, while we all await the next big thing.
Be sure to keep an eye on them if you aren't playing in one of our current chapters.

LotD is always checking out gaming news, and a new MMORPG can always pop up on our list if enough member interest is generated. We encourage all of our members to post on the forums to keep us up to date with things, and to flag new games for consideration.
Be sure to check in on our forums for the games you want to play, and to get updates from our leaders who are leading those specific chapters. 2017 seems to be a maintenance year, and a period of game testing and feedback for our future games. When Crowfall goes into a permanent alpha/beta phase, we will notify those members so we can begin to get organized for some serious group testing.
Until then, feel free to visit us in Discord, our forums, or our official guild threads out there in the various gaming communities!
New Site Under Construction[ATTACH] LotD's main site is getting long in the tooth, and these days guilds do not need complicated content management systems with web development experts on staff. The Discord app has pretty much replaced forums, along with other things, and social media platforms are where non Discord interactions typically happen. LotD will be building a new front page with a basic menu to provide general orientation and guild information to visitors, links to our...
LotD & Jade Empire Alliance #1[ATTACH] LotD and the Jade Empire Alliance, which includes the Ming and Bastion Guilds, are the new #1's for our section of North America's Conqueror's Blade game. This game is a lot like the ones we've played in the past where group organization, politics, map, and resource control all collide to create a virtual game of thrones environment. We appreciate our allies, and we look forward to ruling over our new empire together! [ATTACH]...
LotD Chapter: Conqueror's Blade[ATTACH] We're Launching another official LotD Chapter! The game start's Tuesday May 28th for Early Access and Tuesday June 4th for everyone. There is no mindless PvE grind like BDO! It's all PvP through BG's and Territory wars. This is the first siege game that feels like sieging; action combat with the twist of controlling unit regimens too. If you have any questions get ahold of Gwhorg or Iseng and they'll get you pointed in the right direction!...
2019 State of the Guild[ATTACH] LotD's Lord Crownjaw Greets You! [COLOR=#ffffff]2019 ushers in a new year for LotD, and the MMORPG gaming landscape continues to move in many different directions. LotD, founded in 1995, is moving into its 24th year in 2019, and you can still find us kicking ass and taking names in the online gaming space. Like most guilds we have migrated a lot of things to Discord, but, like any solid organization, we still maintain a...
LotD Returns to Pirate Roots in Atlas![ATTACH] LotD is returning to its pirate roots, and checking out the new Pirate MMO Atlas! In previous years LotD owned the high seas in our Archeage era, and Atlas looks to be a great successor. If you haven't gamed with LotD in recent times, hop on the LotD Discord and link up again. You can leave us a note on our Atlas thread, and find...
