Amtgard is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization that is dedicated to the recreation of the Sword and Sorcery genre as well as educational aspects of both Medieval and Ancient cultures. Amtgard focuses largely on a Medieval-based combat system but also encompasses the arts and sciences of the time, in a friendly, social atmosphere.
Amtgard uses safe, foam-padded replicas of Medieval weaponry. Anyone aged fourteen years or older may compete in the martial aspect of the game but we welcome members of all ages. There's a place for everyone.
Amtgard is free to play but there are certain documentary requirements. These documents can be found under the Official Documents link. Those interested in starting a new Amtgard group can find the required contract here, along with the FAQ, and any Other Documents that might be helpful.
