Amtgard Resources

Amtgard is entirely run by volunteers who have done a lot of work to pass their knowledge down to others looking to get involved. Below you can find links to our rules and bylaws as well as resources for making gear and interacting with the larger Amtgard community. If you don't find what you're looking for here, please reach out to one of the Facebook groups and ask.

Online Record Keeper (ORK)

The Online Record Keeper allows you to find information about your credits, awards, and groups.

There is also a set of incredibly useful tools created by Ken Walker. The mobile ORK (mORK) allows you to view your credits and sign in on your phone. jsork is a collection of ORK integrations that can generate reports about ladder awards and leveling more easily.


The Amtgard Ombudsman program is a small team of volunteers who act as mediators for local, kingdom, and inter-kingdom conflict. If you’re struggling with another player, your local monarch and kingdom monarch are great resources. If they can’t help you or you don’t know where to go, the Ombudsman can help. They have a strict confidentiality policy and can help players communicate and resolve conflicts effectively. You can contact the ombudsman at ( or on their Facebook page.


The Amtwiki is a resource for information about players, groups, kingdoms, and stories from Amtgard's history.

Social Media

The Empire of the Iron Mountains and each of our parks maintain Facebook groups which are the easiest ways to get information and meet other members.

There are also a number of groups for discussing game-wide topics.

  • Amtgard - For general Amtgard discussion. This group gets a lot of traffic and is used to talk about current events or new ideas, share stories, and ask for advice.
