Amtgard V9 Playtest Information

General Disclaimer

The Amtgard V9 Alpha Playtest Program is the official playtest program for the Amtgard V9 ruleset.

This is a standalone product. These rules is not designed or intended to be used alongside the existing Amtgard V8 rules. Doing so may yield results that are not reflective of Amtgard V9 or the goals of its developers.

Alpha-level rules are not final. They are not supposed to look or feel like a finished product at this time. They are a work in progress and therefore subject to change. Changes may occur frequently. Consult the version number and the change log to ensure you are following the most up-to-date rules.

Construction Disclaimer

We sincerely appreciate anyone who chooses to spend their time and resources constructing equipment for the playtest. That said, if you choose to craft equipment for this playtest, please do so with the knowledge that it may become illegal as the ruleset continues to develop. If you are worried about wasting resources, please check with a V9 Team member and they can let you know how likely it is your project will see changes down the line.

When and Where Can I Playtest V9?

All parks and their players are invited to participate at this time. Alpha Playtesting is completely voluntary and should be done at the leisure of each park and its members. Playtesting these rough, unrefined rules may not be enjoyable for everyone. It is encouraged that players be given the choice and ample time to familiarize themselves with the playtest ruleset before use. This is still a completely new edition, even if many aspects are similar.

If your players are looking to play a more refined and polished version, we highly recommend waiting until Beta-Playtesting begins in summer 2024.

To help with advertising, you can use the the V9 logo or seal on any event banners or posters so players know it will be using the V9 rules.

Where Can I Contribute Feedback?

Any Amtgard player can join the Amtgard V9 Discord server to submit feedback and participate in discussion.

Only feedback submitted on the Discord server is guaranteed to be seen by the development team.
