The coat of arms for Amtgard. This is NOT the coat of arms for Barony of Far Woods, the Memphis TN chapter of Amtgard. Although artistic and well intended, it is WRONG!

GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Amtgard is a non-profit educational corporation dedicated to the study and recreation of the medieval and fantasy era and genre of role-playing. It takes the form of a live action role playing (LARP) game that endeavors to recreate individual and group combat, making use of many classes: Archer, Assassin, Barbarian, Bard, Druid, Healer, Monk, "Monster" (many different creatures with lots of different abilities have been created), Paladin (and Anti-Paladin), Scout, Warrior, and Wizard.

WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT

Amtgard weapons are safe, foam padded replicas of the real things. Amtgard battlegames range from tournies and duels (one on one combat) to quests versus monsters and wars between kingdoms that involve hundreds of individuals. All battlegames and scenarioes are covered by a comprehensive set of rules. Overall, Amtgard equipment is much cheaper and easier to make than that of similar organizations such as the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Mind you, I'm not knocking the organization, since those guys are pretty neat too.
