Thalen Tannon first started playing Amtgard in Turris Lunae, in the Celestial Kingdom in the fall of 1991. During his time in the CK, he was a member of the War Dancers and The Darkjesters (Zodiac's bastard 13th child). He played vigorously until 1998 when he moved to the Kingdom of the Wetlands.
Once in the Wetlands, real life slowed him down somewhat. In spite of that, from 1998 to 2006 he played in Granite Spire, the Mushroom Shrine (where he served as Ducal Chancellor), and Mordengaard and Stormwall. While he's a well rounded artisan, He is most well known for his original Filks and in 2003 he was awarded a Master_Dragon for his singing and filking.
He stepped out of the game in 2006 to deal with some real life issues, but came back in 2008 with a renewed spirit. In 2009, he was squired under Saint O'Banion, and he won the Kingdom of the Wetlands DragonMaster Tournament of Reign XXVII. Working with Squire Juju Hex Mojo, and Squire Miss Kittah Rabbet he served as Sheriff for a year and assisted in the resurrection of Granite Spyre.
He served as the Seneschal of Granite Spyre for most of 2010. In May of 2010 He was elected Regent of the Kingdom of the Wetlands for Reign XXIX. In December of 2010, he was made a Knight of the Serpent and crowned King of the Wetlands for Reign XXX. He is the first Amtgarder to step down as Kingdom Regent, get Knighted, and step up as Kingdom Monarch in one night. He was also the first Wetlands Monarch to serve in a Royal Couple with his wife, Kittah, serving as his Regent.
Still serving in office, he was elected Chancellor and won the office of Champion in Granite Spire for the Winter 2011 Reign then ran unopposed to office of Kingdom of the Wetlands Prime Minister for Reign XXXII/XXXIII (Spring & Summer 2012).
