To those would travel with us, understand the choice you make. Our journey is not an easy one, but you will never be alone once you enter our Circle.
The Wandering Unicorns came into this existence March, 1983 C.E. At first we were only three brothers of the blade, fighting in common cause. Later, others began to find their home in our circle. Always striving with the highest ideals for ourselves and the lands of Amtgard, we faithfully serve the Dream.

In ancient times the four virtues of Misericordia, Justicia, Pax, Veritas (Mercy, Justice, Peace, Truth) were associated with the Unicorn. It was impervious to the efforts of man. Only purity and innocence were capable of calming and capturing it.
The qualities of the Unicorn are mystery, strength, and compassion. An elusive and noble being only glimpsed within the forest. Only with the purest of desire can a unicorn be approached, and once touched, its essence travels forever with you: You *have been transformed.
The banner of the Wandering Unicorns has many meanings.The black unicorn head represents a being of mystery, something from the unknown. It is a creature that is rarely seen, and if then, merely a glimpse or shadow. The grey of the background is the twilight between day and night. A unicorn stands between worlds, neither fully in reality nor in the realm of dreams.
The essence of the Unicorn is within all true and honorable defenders of Life.
The Wandering Unicorn family exists beyond the limits of blood and common ancestors. Our bond is a spiritual connection that binds us together through our friendship and our passion for life.
