Michael Hammer of God
Grand Duke Sir Michael Hammer of God, of the Rising Winds
"Bring it on, baby”
"If you say his name three times, Mhog will appear and will make amtgard things happen. This may take you spinning 3 times clockwise while saying his name. Also, a noob may need to be sacrificed at some point, the ancient amtgard texts are not clear."
Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Michael attended college in the late 80s in San Antonio, TX, and while there he was a founding member of the first Amtgard chapter in San Antonio, Turris Lunae. From there he co-founded the Celestial Kingdom, and served as its First King, it's 11th Prime Minister and it's second and 9th Champion. While in the CK he became a Knight of the Crown, Knight of the Sword and Knight of the Flame. In 1998 he moved back to Colorado, where he earned his Warlord in the Iron Mountains, served as the 19th, 24th, Regent 29th Monarch 18th Champion as well, and became a Knight of the Serpent in June of 2003. He resided in the Duchy of the Frostlands for several years before moving to the Barony of Mists of the Dawn where he plays today.
Longest continuous member of the Tiger Clan
Really where do you start? Michael is easily one of the most well-known Amtgarders across the nation. In 2004 he attempted to attend events in all twelve kingdoms, but came up just short when he got stuck in an airport attempting to make it to the Rising Winds. He did finally make it to the Rising Winds in June of 2005, when the Rising Winds hosted Olympiad.
