The Myrmidon Legion Organization Inc.
TML (The Myrmidon Legion) Was formed in 2001-2002 in a game called DarkSpace. The TML team consisted of about 20-30 members and as the population of the game died off so did TML. During its peak Achilles had met Challenger and created a small TeamSpeak server to allow some of our DarkSpace friends to get together and just game out on random games and have a good time. As the game died off both of the TML Founders wanted something more. We knew that we could lead individuals and run an in-game Community. We wanted to create a Community outside of the game that we played. We purchased a website from Enjin and enjoyed the small TeamSpeak server that came with it.
As time went on we grew in numbers. We’ve had to continuously expand our website and had gone from playing client-hosted servers or some MMOs to purchasing dedicated servers while continuing to play on member-hosted servers and MMOs. The original members always considered our group to be TML from the original game that we used to play together. However, the Founders didn’t start to consider TML as a “Gaming Community” until the announcement of Star Citizen in 2012. Those of us who played Darkspace were always seeking a new kind of space-based MMO game. Star Citizen looked to be the answer to what we had been craving for many years.
TML was officially created on October 8th, 2013 with about a dozen dedicated members. We spent the next several months organizing our group, creating its original Community structure, and working out how our Organization would run within Star Citizen. Soon after the announcement we, like everyone else in the Star Citizen Community, learned that this wasn’t a game that we would be playing anytime soon due to its slow development. It was at this point that the Founders and the others decided it would be in our group’s best interest to expand out into other games and host what we could for others to enjoy.
In early 2014, after speaking with the other leaders in the Community, Achilles and Challenger decided to incorporate our Organization with the US Government. On April 22nd, 2014 TML created and filed its articles of organization with the US Government and the state of Connecticut and was rebranded as “The Myrmidon Legion Organization Inc.” while still using TML or ML for short. Our paperwork was accepted, and TML became a 501(c) non-profit organization. Off the record, TML was rebranded into a multi-game & international gaming community.
For the last 20 years that the TML/ML name has existed, we have celebrated many triumphs and milestones together and have weathered plenty of storms. In 2022 began to make changes to its branding, image, and its infrastructure. All of our Divisions are now a part of the same Discord server. Information and log-in details for our new Discord server can be found on the top right side of our website.
Looking to the future, we hope to continue to grow. At some point, we would like to have a physical location that would be a gaming area for both tabletop games and online games. We thank you for taking the time to read about us and we look forward to seeing you online!
