The Duchy of Darkmoon was founded in 1998, and has been a staple in the Colorado Springs community ever since. We meet weekly at Palmer Park, at the intersection of Academy and Maizeland. Meeting times are every Saturday at noon, and going until dark or until we run out of steam.
~~~What should I bring on my first day?~~~
On your first day, you should bring:
A photo ID
Your vaccine card or a picture of it (Vaccine records from the My Colorado App are acceptable)
Comfortable clothing that you will be able to move in
Comfortable athletic shoes (tennis shoes, running shoes, cleats, etc.)
Enough water to stay hydrated through an afternoon
A snack is always a good idea
~~~Does it cost money to play Amtgard?~~~
No! Amtgard is free to play! Anyone can walk up and start playing for zero cost. Over time, you will have to provide your own gear and garb, but the community can help you build your own at very low cost.
We do have optional members’ dues which help fund community activities, and will allow you to participate in community althings (electing local leadership and rules changes).
~~~How old do I have to be to play Amtgard?~~~
We allow people to participate starting at 14 years of age, though we require that minors are accompanied by a parent or guardian while they are attending park. Minors must have a parent or guardian complete the liability waiver before they play.
