Good tidings, all! Baron Sir Calvin Mac Druen (ska Romerion Landsinger) here. I don't expect everyone here to know who I am, or even remember me if they DID know me at one time, or whathaveyou, but I used to be a rather heavy Amtgardian until about 9 years ago, when I had a nervous breakdown and pretty much stopped doing ANYthing social for a while. I still keep in touch with various people from various groups thanks to the 'Net, and I've been thinking more and more of trying to get back into the swing of things with the society, even though so much seems to have changed that I'm probably going to feel like a fish out of water for a while.
Anywho, I joined this community as a means of hopefully getting myself more up to speed with the current State of the Game and such, reconnect with lost friends, and also just because part of me still misses the people more than anything else. And if nothing else, I wanted any possible rumours floating around out there as to what happened to me to be hopefully clarified, through word-of-mouth if nothing else. For all I know, there's folks out there who have been told I'm dead or something. >.<
And now, on with that quiz thing that's been floating around:
Amtgard in a Nutshell
I HAVE BEEN IN AMTGARD FOR:
 Less than a Year
 1-2 Years
I HAVE BEEN APART OF PARKS IN THE FOLLOWING KINGDOMS:
 Emerald Hills
[X] Celestial Kingdom
 Golden Plains
 Iron Mountains
 Rising Winds
 Crystal Groves
 Desert Winds
I HAVE PLAYED THE FOLLOWING CLASSES:
(have not seen the rules since 6th Edition, however)
Raider (I don't even recognise this class)
MY HIGHEST LEVEL IN ANY GIVEN CLASS IS:
I HAVE MADE (laughably attempted, more like) THE FOLLOWING FIGHTING IMPL[E]MENTS:
[X]Short Pole Arm
I HAVE BROKEN THE FOLLOWING WEAPONS (If no to all skip following question):
[X]Short Pole Arm
[X]Pole arm (Rapestick) Good Goddess, is that actually a common nickname for this weapon nowadays? How...charming.
I BROKE WEAPONS BECAUSE:
The broiling heat of a Texas summer is/was well-known for weakening the tensile strength of PVC and breaking down foam after prolonged exposure, so weapons breakage was a fairly common occurence at the southern parks where I played, and it was often difficult to establish exactly why a weapon broke when it did during seemingly normal play. However, I'll freely admit I've broken a weapon or two while duelling concrete park tables and a bench. To the best of my memory, I never broke a weapon from hitting someone too hard.
I HAVE SERVED IN THE FOLLOWING OFFICES:
[X]Monarch (Local and Kingdom) (Baron of Tori-Mar)
[X]Prime Minister (Local and Kingdom) (Chancellor for Tori-Mar)
[X]Regent (Local and Kingdom) (I'm faaaairly certain I was a regent for Tori-Mar at one point, but I might be remembering wrong; give me a break, it's been more than 12 years since I was last even out at the Pease Park location
Champion (Local only)
MY COLORS ARE:
Silver (Silver IS white)
AT ANY GIVEN AMTGARD EVENT I PARTICIPATE IN:
(Because of medical issues, I've more or less had to give up on actual fighting activities)
Ditching (depends on the group)
Training (depends on the group)
Class Battles (depends on the group)
Sparring (depends on the group)
[X]Debauchery (of a sort)
[X][Flirting my arse off with] the Women
-What's your FULL Amtgard name?
Calvin Mac Druen, Lord Havendale
-What's your title?
Baron, Knight of the Flame
-Weapon of Choice?
Wit and charm.
-Style of Choice?
-What are you most known for?
That largely depends upon whom you're asking. Personally, I like to think it was my dedication to roleplaying and my attempts to be friendly to as many people as possible regardless of affiliation. But then again, I could be dreaming.
Probably when Aramithras dubbed me an "Alpha Drummer."
Haven't travelled extensively enough to say, but I was impressed by the Goldenvale park when I lived up there. And of course, Pease Park in Austin will always hold a place of fond memory in my heart, regardless of whether it's even used anymore.
I cannot possibly pick a favourite, given the sheer number of truly wonderful people I've met in my day.
-Favorite Park Event?
Gathering of the Clans X.
-If you had to chose one weapon you're not experienced at what would it be?
-Favorite piece of garb?
The velvet pirate's coat my ex-wife made for me, based on an authentic pattern for an American Revolutionary War military jacket.
-Favorite piece of Armor?
A leather doublet made ages ago by a former member of Barad-duin, back when Barad-duin was actually still part of Amtgard.
Impossible for me to say at this point, given how much has changed. I haven't actually BEEN to any of the Kingdoms since I went inactive. All things considered, though, I found myself rather fond of Goldenvale, in spite of their insular attitudes at the time.
-If you could have a threesome with any two other Amtgarders who would they be?
-Court or Fighting Garb?
Court garb, always.
-Favorite Class to play?
I always found Druid to be rather fun.
-Best weather to play in?
Any weather that is conducive to good spirits among the attending population. Few things bothered me more than seeing tempers snapping left and right due to bad weather conditions. :-/
