I, Kierra, declare for the position of Heir Apparent. I need to practice for running for office, and this position is perfect to help me learn how to and what is required.
I, Baifu, formally declare for the office of GMR. We have some fabulous games for the upcoming reign and having some good reeves available will make it more fun.
I, Kriv, declare for the position of Heir Apparent. I want the experience as a leader, I believe that having that experience in Amtgard is important. I also want to create and run battlegames during this upcoming reign.
I, Baron Squire Balder Lance Stroke, declare my intent to run for the office of Duke in Pegasus Valley for this upcoming Fall/Winter reign.
I, Dakkenly, declare my intentions to run for the position of Regent in Pegasus Valley for this upcoming Fall/Winter reign. I have a lot of roleplaying material lined up, and am a strong supporter of a Star Wars theme. I have also created a calendar for all PV related events, and will keep it updated as new things are coordinated. For my regent duties, I have plans for feasts during this reign, for which I have a group of experienced cooks, as well as coordinating Arts and Sciences with our current Prime Minister and a plan to combine arts and sciences meetings with Stormfall Mesa.
I, Belthil declare my intent to run for Champion.
Greetings from Tal Dagore.
I have a paid Meetup account for the local groups up here, but it comes with 2 extra Meetups so I've set one up for Northern New Mexico. If you haven't used Meetup before, it's a tool for discovering groups of people in your area with similar interests and meeting them to do things. The New Mexico Amtgard meetup is located at:
I've invited a few people on to the group to get things setup, but what makes this really work is getting everyone involved. I need a few things from everyone. It's just a little bit of work, but it is important for attracting more people online.
- RSVP to meetings that you are going to go to anyway. New people seeing that there are 10-30 people already going makes it much more friendly than it looking like only one other person will be there.
- Post a photo of what happened that week. People that are on the fence about going or not need the extra touches. Even if only a couple people do this each week, it is a huge benefit.
- Answer questions from new/prospective players.
Archer - Serac
Assassin - Amatiel
Barbarian - Kriv
Druid - Kierra
Healer - Amatiel
Monk - Bai Fhu
Monster - Xantcha
Reeve - Shadowcaster
Scout - Fay
Warrior - Shadowcaster
Vacant Guildmaster positions:
Alucard for Regent
Confidence - 11
No Confidence - 1
Highland Games Stuff
Bids for Highland Games should be modified to take into account multiple tiers of weapons so that we can sell both cheap swords for the masses and premium weapons that are more like the swords we actually use.
Shayleigh says that she has a color laser printer that can be used for printing flyers for Highland Games.
We will need more wristbands for the event, they must be asked for at a committee meeting.
Combined Park Days
Anatole is organizing combined park days, starting at the end of March. Each month the park would change. First up is Stormfall Mesa on March 29th.
We have 2 bids to run our booth and fighting pit at this year's Highland Games event. I am looking for discussion on them before final discussion at the park this weekend.
Citizens, nobles, and legionnaries,
The long harsh winter is soon to be over, and when we take back our city, it must be in perfect order. The Legate and I have been apalled at our economical situation. The rate of Equuins to Drakes has become three to one within the past month. The reason for our currency inflation was only recently discovered. Hidden in the woods, there was a Bandit King forging Equuins. The Legion took capable care of these charlatans in a timely manner, taking their equipment from them. Now that we are aware, we may restablize our currency.
Strength through Unity,

The following has been declassified after the arrest of the known traitors:
When the Bandit King and his forces mounted a counter-offensive, they did not reclaim their equipment, but a cleverly glamoured device of my design. This allowed us to listen on them and gather information. When the time was right, we performed a surgical, extra-judicial attack. Many traitors were eliminated today. The legion has my thanks.
Just a reminder that crown qualifications are on Saturday. Sign-ins for fighting and cultural events will be open until 1pm. You can speed up your sign ins by having your item description already written on a white 3x5 card.
There will be an A&S meeting at my place (4910 Palo Alto SE) on Friday starting at 6 for cooking/vintners events and the mancala gaming event. There will be stove, oven and microwave space if you need to heat food entries up before judging. Cooking sign-ins close at 8. The goal is to get all food entries judged quickly after it is entered.
Gaming will start at 6:30. We will be playing a mancala game with a 5x2 board with stores and 4 seeds per house. Pie rule in effect.

Today was a great day! Our buried stockpiles that were plundered from the Iron Mountains thirteen years ago were recovered, melted down, and forged into new coins. Our legion and citizens were able to fend off the bandits and deliver both carts safely to our temporary stronghold.
Stockpiles are still running low, but after our successes today in securing our newly minted coinage perhaps we can start hiring local merchants and craftspeople to replenish our weaponry, food, and magics to take back our duchy.
