Amtgard, Twitch and Writing

There hasn’t been much Amtgard related content these past two weeks. The notable exceptions are One Grind nation and Sword Knight Boot Camp. Both Facebook pages have had streams. Neither of which I have actively watched. SKBC and OGN SKBC did a two part series on short sword, both which are something I’d like to …

Amtgard Online Week 8

The last three weeks there has been very little Amtgard to speak of, at least in the Pacific Northwest. I don’t think that the dip in content will last forever but I understated why it has happened. There was a lot of content for the first several weeks and then people got burnt out. Hopefully …

Amtgard Online Week 5

This week was a bit light on content compared to previous weeks. It’s getting harder and harder to find people to do content but that doesn’t mean people haven’t been trying to scare up some people. I for one added to the online content this last weekend. I did a short sword basics class on …

Amtgard Online Week 4

It’s the fourth week of Amtgard online and I think I’m finally getting my drive to create back.

World Building: Quest Basics, …

Stream Watching Sunday I watched several of the Dusk Hollow (Dallas, OR) streams. …

Second blog of the week! This time it’s dedicated to listing upcoming streams. The focus is on Amtgard and foam fighting. Some of the lists are incomplete but I wanted to get out as much info as I could early enough that it would be useful. To be clear this is just the streams I’m …

Amtgard Online Week 2

We are into week two of no meet up Amtgard. I spent a little less time watching videos this weekend than I did the week before, but I still got a few hours of Amtgard watching in. I also found out, while writing this blog, that Western Wars 17 has been canceled. It was schedule …

Amtgard, Online Edition

As everyone is probably aware, the COVID-19 virus has shut down in person Amtgard meetings. However that hasn’t stopped people from finding interesting ways to engage in the game. This weekend I was able to get two credits, one for Saturday and one for Sunday, thanks to online meetings. Last Week’s Streams On Saturday I …

Unmotivated

This last weekend was kind of rough for me. If you’ve kept up you’ll know that I was helping my grandparents move to Arizona. It was a long trip, 1,400 miles and it didn’t go as planned. The first night the tread on the back tired came flying off, damaging the truck and making me …
