About our guild

TKM was originally formed by a small group of MMO veterans, we've played many games together and when SWTOR popped up we were all keen to get involved and see what it had to offer us as avid roleplayers.

We originally formed on Trask Ulgo but have since transferred to The Progenitor.

Our aim is to form a small, close knit community of like-minded players.

While we play on a RP server and consider ourselves a RP guild many of us have an interest in and do enjoy other parts of the game as well, be it exploring, questing, raiding or PVP.
Most importantly though we want a sociable atmosphere to do these things in. To enjoy the company of like-minded individuals as we trudge through the gritty underbellies and amble across the brilliant vistas of the Star Wars universe.

Since the inception of the Treaty of Coruscant, Republic society has been plunged into a time of change and uncertainty. While the machinations of the ruthless Sith Empire sow fear and invite strife upon hapless worlds the Galactic Senate prepares and plans for the future. It falls to the proud citizens to protect the peace and freedom of the Golden Age.

As a new generation of heroic travelers from all walks of life venture forth, many come together under bonds of friendship and respect to support one another. Some travel to help the innocent, caught in the vice of war - others work to further their own ends. But they all share a sacred bond of camaraderie. One such network of unlikely allies bear a mark: a swooping bird of prey. They are the Kestrel Minority.

No one really knows when the Kestrels came to be. Some say they have always been and live as a legend shrouded in mystery. Now the Kestrels are again searching for new members because their numbers are waning and the war is coming.

The Kestrels consist mostly of individuals who do not necessarily see eye to eye with the Jedi Council or the Senate of the Republic on all points but who do not support the Sith Empire either. They regard themselves as independent, taking on things that the Jedi order or the senate seem to ignore or cannot act upon. Kestrels may decide that something needs to be done,
but everyone still has their own reasons on a personal level. To maintain their freedom and stay hidden from their enemies, Kestrels all agree to stay silent about their affiliation.

Who can join?
We ask that you are 18 years of age or more (exceptions can be made), that you can speak English and are open minded and tolerant of other people's beliefs, cultures and practices.

Apart from this anyone can join. For those wishing to join from outside the EU that isn't a problem.

So how does one join the Kestrels?
We ask that anyone interested go to our website and put an application in on the forum after registering, it's a short simple application.

Applicants are then given a period of one month (thought it was less)to see whether or not they feel the guild is right for them and also for us as a guild to see if we get along with you. After which you will either be inducted as a full member with all that entails or we part ways amicably.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope to hear from you soon.
- TKM.

The Kestrels are still around.

We are a relaxed bunch of a mature and social players, focused mainly on RP.

We have our homey stronghold, or Nest if you like, on Tatooine, and the Talon (our guildship) is serving as a meeting place at the fleet for now, with an ongoing event chain to bring it into our roleplay.

We have mumble.We team up for PvE content from time to time, and we are trying to get back to doing operations, aiming for a Story Mode operation every other week.
PvP is done on a irregular basis with players interested banding together. (We've done PvP events before and they might return with enough interest.)

Our focus is still on enjoying the game in a social and fun way, rather than being hard progression guild.

The Kestrels will soon be entering the new era, once the last plotlines from the old era are wrapped up in this moth. We are still around and we plan to stay.

Some new screens added to our recruitment forum section about the last events:

The Galaxy has entered a new epoch. Zakuulan ships appeared and the Empire and Republic were both forced to their knees. The Kestrels suffered a loss as well when a number of their people suddenly disappeared aboard an old warship named Talon, just as the first wave of the Eternal Fleet struck, leaving others behind to struggle through the chaotic years even after the treaties were signed, The remaining Kestrels stood defiant in their struggles and refused to believe the demise of their comrades. Even when lady luck stacked the deck against them.

There is a new force forming now in the galaxy, an alliance opposing the Eternal Throne, and while the Kestrels keep to the shadows, they do not stand idle. Small tasks, not considered important enough by the more powerful organisations of the Galaxy, or ones not reaching their ears, are ones the Minority takes on.

Civilians are still caught up in fights, politics still restrain the hands of the leaders, there is still shortage of personnel and resources limiting the options of the official organizations. Yet there are still problems to be solved, and things to do, for those who wish to help. For credits or for the thrill of a good fight, the adrenaline rush of sneaking through enemy lines, for the sake of their beliefs, or for bigger future plans, or simply because they cannot simply sit by and watch - as many reasons as there are Kestrels, but they work together, they back each other up and share what they find.

They are hiding from the public eye but they fight on as they always did, like the old generations did ages ago and as the next ones will in the future. As long as there are people in the galaxy there will be need for them and they will seek to make a difference, big or small, for better or worse.
