Yes, my college friends and I created boffer weapons for practice though we were not officially members of Amtgard.
Oh god, yes. :) I've played dozens of RPGs including D&D (and all its variations), Shadowrun, Champions, Warhammer 40K, and a smattering of others. I participated in a Werewolf LARP once and enjoyed it. I also run a medieval/fantasy roleplay sim on Second Life.
Fighting, mostly, though I would love to get back into calligraphy, which I used to practice.
I live in Northwest Houston with my wife Charlene and two cats. We do renaissance festivals and online gaming for hobbies, and have recently gotten into archery. I'm interested in Amtgard because I enjoy the medieval/fantasy genre RP and fighting.
