The Crimson Order (Industry-PvP-PvE)(18+)(Military Friendly)(NA)(Oceanic Encouraged)
The Crimson Order is a collection of adult game enthusiasts that has endured for over 10 years, through multiple games. We are influenced 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 PvP and territorial control). While our focus is military operations we do pursue other content. We have traditionally had a strong supportive crafter base, and do go after high end PvE content. Despite being largely US members, there is a rising number of Oceanic players who are joining our ranks as well.
Why join the Crimson Order?

-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 CO for our community and the friendships made within make it truly a family.
-18+ community - we only accept adult members.

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, and Distinction.
TCO's vision today builds upon 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 a premier military organization within the game.
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 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 it's 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 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.
Promotions in TCO are earned through hard work, talent, and determination. Corruption and nepotism have no place in the CO.
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 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 Order's 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.
