The Myrmidon Legion Organization Inc.
TML (The Myrmidon Legion) was initially established in 2001-2002 as a group of 20-30 members in the game DarkSpace. As the game’s population declined, TML followed suit. During this period, Achilles and Challenger created a small TeamSpeak server to allow their DarkSpace friends to play random games and socialize.
After the decline of DarkSpace, the founders wanted to lead individuals and establish an in-game community beyond the games they played. They bought a website from Enjin and enjoyed the small TeamSpeak server that came with it. Over time, TML expanded and had to continuously increase the website size. They moved from playing client-hosted servers and MMOs to purchasing dedicated servers while still playing on member-hosted servers and MMOs. The original members still considered the group TML from the original game, but the founders didn’t view TML as a “Gaming Community” until the announcement of Star Citizen in 2012.
TML officially came into existence on October 8th, 2013, with a dozen dedicated members. Over the next several months, they organized their group, established its initial community structure, and worked out how their organization would operate within Star Citizen. However, when Star Citizen’s development was delayed, the founders and other members decided it was in their best interest to expand to other games and host what they could for others to enjoy.
In early 2014, after speaking with other leaders in the community, Achilles and Challenger decided to incorporate TML as a non-profit organization with the US government. TML filed its articles of organization on April 22nd, 2014, with the state of Connecticut and the US government, and was rebranded as “The Myrmidon Legion Organization Inc.” while still using TML or ML for short. TML’s paperwork was accepted, and it became a 501(c) non-profit organization. Off the record, TML became a multi-game and international gaming community.
Over the past 20 years, TML/ML has celebrated many triumphs and milestones together and has overcome many challenges. In 2022, TML began making changes to its branding, image, and infrastructure. All of TML’s divisions are now part of the same Discord server, and information and login details for the new Discord server can be found here: https://myrmidon.org/tml-servers
Looking towards the future, TML hopes to continue to grow and establish a physical location that will be a gaming area for both tabletop games and online games. Thank you for taking the time to learn about TML, and they look forward to seeing you online!
