GUILD INFORMATION AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Please subscribe to this thread by clicking the "Follow This Topic" button in the upper right hand corner of the page.

 

In addition to the informational threads, we will be posting Assassin-specific announcements here (e.g. mini-challenge missions, important threads, etc.) and by following this thread you will be notified when we post. Please note: These announcements cannot be found anywhere else on the forum.  The only way to stay updated on Assassin-specific happenings is to follow this thread.

 

THE GUILD

The Assassins' Guild has gone through a bit of a metamorphosis over the last several challenges.  While we do count several traceurs among our ranks, the majority of Assassins are not focused on parkour but other disciplines.  We do encourage, however, a mindset that we think we share with free runners - Assassins love movement and fluidity, they thrive off of competition and cooperation equally, they prize efficiency, but most of all they are determined to master their own bodyweight.

 

We train anywhere, with anything, and in a myriad of ways.  The world is our playground.

 

COMMON TRAINING STYLES / THEMES

  • Calisthenics / Bodyweight (Al Kavadlo, Mike Fitch, BarStarzz)
  • Gymnastics (Gold Medal Bodies, Overcoming Gravity, Building the Gymnastic Body)
  • Hand-balancing
  • Movement / Flexibility / Mobility (Ido Portal, Animal Flow, Prasara, Mobility WOD)
  • Rock Climbing / Bouldering
  • "Odd" Object Lifting / Swinging (Kettlebells / Clubbells / Shovelglove / Sandbags / Challenge Ropes)
  • Wearing Black
  • Circus Arts (Pole, Trapeze, Contortion, Silks, Rope)
  • Parkour
  • Dance

COMMON CHALLENGE GOALS:

  • Body Recomposition (lose weight, gain weight)
  • Increase Reps (pull-ups, push-ups, pistol squats)
  • Increase Hold Times (handstand, frog/crow stand, levers)
  • Wear More Black
  • Workout / Train / Climb X Times per Week
  • Increase Flexibility / Mobility

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How do I join the Assassins' Guild?
    When you signup for a six-week challenge, declare yourself an Assassin and then post your thread in our guild.  That's it!
     
  • Do I have to be lean/in shape to be an Assassin?
    No.  While extra bodyweight does make our type of training more difficult, Assassins come in all shapes and sizes and anyone is welcome to don the black.
     
  • How advanced in my training do I have to be to join?
    Assassin skill levels range from rank beginners to advanced trainees.
     
  • Can I still earn attribute points with the new challenge setup?
    Most definitely!  Points remain the same.
  • Choosing SMART goals?
    Need a hand to determine if your goals are SMART?  The adventurer guild leader Kim taura has you covered!

Important news!

 

You may have noticed that I have troubles to do all the official guild work all by myself. Many of you have helped me as journalists, spies, writers and other jobs but even with all you help, it was still too much for me too handle. So, for the peace of my mind, I harassed a few people for a great cause! And with but a few menace and some whipping, I am really glad to announce that two of you will join me in the hard work of guild leaders!

 

VengefulPear!

Hello fellow assassins! I am very pleased to be able to say that I have been accepted to the lofty heights of Guild Leader!

 

Some of you might already know me from the past few mini-challenges because I wrote the adventure as we went along with it! For those of you that haven’t already seen me about, fear not! I shall introduce myself properly now!

I’m a nerd from the UK, working in London. And I’ve always enjoyed video games, fantasy, sci-fi and all the trimmings! My current favourite fantasy series is Malazan: Book of the Fallen, but I know it's not for everyone (9 months solid reading!) and my current favourite game... Well Dark Souls is an all time favourite but right now I'm playing a lot of the MOBA Smite.

 

A few years back I started getting into fitness and I thought I’d turn my love of levelling up and turn it on getting fit and healthy. It’s taken a while, stops and starts and half-hearted efforts, but now I feel like I’ve got a good base knowledge of health and fitness and I’m steadily working my way towards my perfect level of fitness.

 

So you can imagine how chuffed I was when I found NerdFitness! I love the idea of the challenges, the guilds and just how lovely and helpful the whole community here is. I want to show that by helping the Assassin’s Guild any way I can, and so here I stand (or sit as I type...) as a shiny new Guild Leader!

 

I love bodyweight exercises because they’re so versatile and you can’t watch Ninja Warrior and not want to be just like that (or at least I think so)! I’ve done some weights in the past, and have worked into my challenges lifting weight to add up to a T-Rex (Not as hard as you’d think!). Things like static holds always just blow me away and I really love the idea of joining geekery and fitness. What other Guild will prepare you to do a handstand on the Jotunheimen mountains so you can say you ‘held the land of the ice giants in your hands’? (Actual life goal right there)

 

Despite my username I’m a friendly pear! So do come over to my challenge and say hello, or drop me a PM, and I’ll be happy to geek it up with you, answer any questions or think on any suggestions, anything you want really!

 

And similarly, I use the name vengefulpear on a few places, so if you want to find me on myfitnesspal, you can find me as vengefulpear, and if you find yourself facing an enemy named vengefulpear in Smite then go easy on me! :D

It’s a real joy to be accepted as Guild Leader and I just hope I can do everyone on Nerd Fitness and in the Assassin’s Guild justice!

 

 

 

Apfelstrudi!

 

photo-20766.jpg
 

22-years-old, Germany

 

I've never been athletic or sporty - even though I was never overweight, I was the kid who sat in sports classes and was chosen last. But it's been quite a few years since I went to high school and with the help of Nerdfitness I've started turning things around. 

 

I've found my true home with the assassins. Watching my body do things, without anything assisting, and seeing progress makes me unbelievably happy. And it's the fact that I can do some form of workout everywhere I go that I need nothing but my own body for that helps me most on my way to my ultimate goal.

 

What is my ultimate goal, though? Overall, it's being healthy and athletic. I want to be able to participate in simply everything - from hikes to rock climbing to to runs. I want an active life for myself and want to inspire those around me. I have many, many goals that I want to reach along the way. These are certain exercises, like push-ups and pull-ups, accomplishments like bouldering certain routes and one of my biggest goals is being able to do calisthenics, properly, and to run a Tough Mudder.

 

My nerdiness comes mostly from roleplay and video games. I'm an administrator in a RP community and even though I'm not actively roleplaying at the moment, it's always been a part of my life. If I could travel to any universe/form or reality, I'd most likely choose to live in the world of Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.

 

 

 

I hope you will give them a warm welcome! And I promise, I'll try not to overwork them too quickly :D Our GL team being very newly done (like, today...), there will be a bit of delay for the creative mini-challenge publication. Everything else will be as initially scheduled! But for now, rejoice!

The Most wanted Assassin list is up!

 

Congratulation to the 5 who made up to the list, and sorry for the 4 runners up (that we will probably see in the list soon anyway). You all did pretty well for this first week but we had to make a choice!

We need you to be awesome!


I know, what a silly thing to say! You’re already awesome. But what about the people that are still struggling to reach that state of pure awesomeness that seems almost natural to us?


There are many, many assassins-to-be in the Level 1 forum that could use encouragement, advice and a little help along the way.  After all - Ezio could have never become a true assassin without the help of other assassins either. Whether you’d rather take on the role of his uncle or that of the brothel mistress is up to you.


If you feel like helping out, there are a few spots open for Assassin Ambassadors.


What does an Ambassador have to do?

It’s really quite simply - have a good look at the Level 1 forum. You don’t have to restrict youself to only those that aspire to be assassins, although those rebels are, of course, our main focus.


Drop in on their threads, encourage them, help them, offer your advice and welcome them to the wonderful community that is Nerdfitness. Many Level 1 Rebels drop out for a myriad of different reasons.

As an Ambassador, you might be able to change that number, encourage more people to pull through, ascend to the next level, instead of dropping out halfway through.


Does that sounds like just the right kind of job for you? Contact one of your guild leaders and we’ll set you up.

Just trying to get back on my feet. :)

Assassins!

 

It's time for standing ovations!

Please welcome our brandnew, fresh and shiny ambassadors cobaltsword, Kan and bambamty!

They just came out of the ambassador factory and while they're not chimney sweepers, you can still try to poke them for good luck.

Maybe even lick them. I'm not sure if that would bring you much luck though.

Anyways!

Thank you for stepping up and helping us out! :)

Mini Challenge #5: Red Ranger Danger!

 

Assassins! It's the final week of the challenge so it's time for one last explosion of mini-challenge!

But! We have saved all but one of the Power Rangers! With our fantastic efforts last week we have the Pink Ranger alongside us and now we must defeat Rita Repulsa to save the Red Ranger!

 

Head over to the challenge thread to see how you can save him! http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/44014-mini-challenge-5-red-ranger-danger/
