Alert: Baelnorn Was On The Field

After a prolonged hiatus, I returned to foam fighting, inspired by progress in my personal health and stability. Over recent weeks, I participated in Amtgard practices and events, including Iron Keep’s 33rd anniversary, where I fought continuously for hours. My journey, reignited at SKBC 2024, has been revitalized through adopting a mindful approach to fighting, emphasized in a course that shaped my current strategy. This weekend’s immersive experience at Iron Keep reaffirmed my capability and enthusiasm for foam fighting, suggesting a sustainable return to this passion.

My Time At NLCC 2024 Spring

I’ll be honest, these days when I’m at an event I’m not usually playing the actual game of Amtgard.
