Aster the Monstrous, Sainted Mother, of Hel's Gate, Kingdom of Crystal Groves
"This is a made-up game with made-up rules played by a bunch of nerds. I'm sure we can figure it out."
Aster picked up a sword on December 10th, 201 and 6 weeks later was competing in a kingdom level tournament and investing weekly in her park. As an older woman at her park, she has taken on the role of 'Park Mom', not only because of her tendency to mother hen her parkmates, but also because her own son was a member of the park and is making a name for himself at his new park in Rising Winds.
Though she hailed from a fighting focused park, she feels strongly about the A&S aspects, and RP which has led her to make weapons, garb, and assist in hosting events. Because of her dedication to G!G! and A&S, she pursued the vacant Regency and enjoyed that for a short time until she had an unfortunate promotion to Baroness-by-default until the unanimous vote to join their sister park, HH.
Aster is dedicated to making her park, and her kingdom, a safe, inclusive, and fun place for everyone who wants to throw foam or create amazing things. Having a chronic illness prevents her from always fighting as hard as she wants, and so she brings support to intervals, park time, and Amtgard at large. She wants to show everyone that if they love the game, that they bring value, no matter what their skills, drive, limits, or abilities are.
She participates in online RP, helping found the southern online RP group for "The Village of Brimstone" and has a number of characters. She also enjoys playing a variety of classes on park days, including Assassin, Healer, and Monster.
