RTK is one of the oldest continually active clans in the Total War community. We are a collection of mature players who strive to show respect for the game, for the community and for its players. Many of us have been friends on and off the battlefield for years, and we have hosted clan reunions in both the US and the UK, drawing many of our players near and far. We have always valued new recruits and look for strong, active players, with the qualities of character that would allow them to carry on the tradition of RTK.
RTK has a long history of contribution to the Total War community. We strives to be an active, positive contributor to the community at large, and evidence of this is shown by the stewardship of many community tournaments by RTK admins.
RTK has been committed to achieving excellence in tournament play for every edition of Total War. Along the way, we have racked up many tournament trophies, and many player and clan awards. This is a tradition we intend to continue.
In RL our members include various students and professionals, including two US army war veterans, a veteran of the Portuguese army, a physicist, a veteran of the Norwegian army, a Hollywood style guru, a couple professors, several students, Gareth Keenan, a couple transients (or soon to be), and Pete (who defies categories).
Current members are from all over the world, including Hungary, the U.S., the U.K., France, Norway, Poland, Lithuania, Canada, Spain, Denmark, and the Netherlands.
We ask all Pages, Squires, and Knights to follow the way of RTK, which is summarized below:
Honour .... Integrity .... Loyalty .... Respect .... Brotherhood.
Honour ~ as RTK, we have a deep sense of personal integrity coupled with respect for others.
Integrity ~ as RTK, we demonstrate uncompromising ethical conduct in all of our personal actions. We are honest and truthful in our dealings with each other, and with those outside the clan.
Loyalty ~ as RTK, we have faith in and place trust in ourselves, the clan, its Tenets, and in each other.
Respect ~ as RTK, we hold others in high regard, treating them with fairness, dignity, and compassion. We respect ourselves, we respect our clanmates whether they are peers, superiors, or subordinates, and we respect members of the TW community.
Brotherhood ~ as RTK, we are friends and comrades who share fellowship in a common bond ..... the values expressed here and in the "Tenets of the Round".
This is the way of the RTK, whether in-game, in our forums, or interacting with the TW community. Those who have these qualities progress within our ranks to eventually become Knights of the Round Table. Those who do not... we wish them good fortune as they journey elsewhere for what they are seeking to find.
