Taven began playing Amtgard in September of 2006. Quickly becoming a respected member of Crimson Moon, he was appointed Champion in January of 2008 when the reigning champion was forced to resign due to work scheduling. Taven continues to share his humor, wisdom, and leadership skills in Crimson Moon and in the Wetlands. Less than 4yrs in the game, he was elected to the Board of Directors by an overwhelming majority in December of 2009.
Taven is teh awesome, and if you haven't met him, seek him out, you won't regret it.
Knighted February 23rd, 2013: In an emotional and well-photographed ceremony, the sword was dropped by Dame Samara du Lac while his liege, Don Sebastian, read him his Oath of Chivalry. Following the oath, Sebastian slapped him (ala "Kingdom of Heaven") so that he would never forget that night. Of course, the slap was reciprocated during his buffeting, and THAT slap was immediately dubbed "The Slap Heard 'Round Amtgardia", probably because most of the onlookers wished they could slap Sebastian, too. There were tears, drinks, and an enourmous amount of cheering as Taven arose, a Knight of the Flame of the Kingdom of the Wetlands. There is a rumor that even Sebastian had a tear or three on his face (before he got slapped), but that woud be accusing Bas of having a heart and possibly even a soul, so it can't possibly be true...
