A variant of the standard Hold. Though not technically laid out in the Rulebook, Personal Holds are an element of "real" Amtgard play in many lands and are used for instances when a player needs to excuse him/herself from play and tend to something, in a way personally deemed not requiring of the immediate cessation of battle on the entire field (unlike the regular Hold). Examples include being called off the field by Color or other obligations, minor personal injury away from areas of dispersed conflict (i.e. in an Honor Duel), or accidentally shooting/throwing Projectiles into an area in which they may be difficult to retrieve later (as opposed to retrieving equipment in an area where no such difficulty exists).

Observing Personal Holds called by others, as well as only calling them under proper circumstances, is an unwritten element of Game Etiquette.
