Traitor's Gate

Traitor's Gate is the San Antonio Chapter of the Celestial Kingdom.  The Celestial Kingdom is the central Texas kingdom of Amtgard. The Celestial Kingdom is a recognized not-for-profit organization that blends LARP-ing, crafting, foam-fighting and adventure. 

Amtgard weapons are safe, foam-padded facsimiles of medieval, ancient and fantasy realms.


VINLAND TEXAS VIKINGS stand under the Ormheimr banner, united on the battlefield. The Saga of Vinland tells of a legendary expedition and colonization of North America . It is from here that we take our inspiration. We recreate aspects of Viking warrior culture, focusing on Viking martial arts. Our members also explore all other areas of Viking Age life, including fine craftsmanship, reconstructing clothing and gear and running authentic encampments. We also take part in battlefield training and competitions with other Viking groups all around the world.



Ironhide and Bumblebee will be outside the library entrance and available for pictures!
