The Shire of Slaughter Creek is an Amtgard park based in Mary Moore Seawright Park in South Austin off Slaughter Lane. Amtgard is a live action role playing game that emphasizes combat with "boffer"/padded weapons in a fantasy background. Members hang out, fight 1 on 1 or in groups, participate in battlegames (fighting augmented by armor, magic, bows, monsters, etc.), or create fantasy arts or craft items. If you're interested in Amtgard, LARP's, Dungeons and Dragons, the fantasy genre, or just beating up your friends and total strangers with padded sticks, this game is for you!
