Saturday was mostly a normal day, there was no special event, but something interesting did happen. Then on Sunday there was the Arcana fighter practice at Dusk Hollow, which I recorded a few videos …

OGN Charity Stream

This week is pretty light on Amtgard content. The most notable news, in my opinion, was the One Grind Nation streams put on by Dalos. This week he did two of them, with the aim of generating money for his people in Yakima. They have been hit particularly hard by the virus. From Dalos’ Post: …

Life Continues

Life seems to revolve around cycles and my life is no different. The quarantine has gotten to me, but at one point I thought I had found my rhythm once again. I was wrong. It’s been hard to focus and write my weekly blog. Granted there has been a lack of Amtgard content to write …
