Phoenix Tears (PT) is the local Amtgard chapter of Springfield, Illinois. PT has been around for just over 16 years. Amtgard is an international live-action roleplay group focused on Battle Gaming with the support of a large artistic community. We are part of the Kingdom known as Tal Dagore. We meet almost every Sunday at 1:30 in Lincoln Park at the Picnic tables on the south side of the Tennis courts. We leave no later than park closing, but even if you can only stay a short time we encourage visiting. We are a welcoming group, and there is no charge associated with joining, we often have spare gear for newer players and are willing to teach those willing to learn. Feel free to join our Facebook group too.
