Alert: Baelnorn Was On The Field

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.
