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 performing many skills 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.

 

If you have any other questions don't hesitate to PM your GLs! So that's either vengefulpear or Hazard! We're both happy to help!

 

Please remember to start your thread title with your username for easier viewing on phones and to make your GLs happy!

GUILD LEADER ANNOUNCEMENT

 

As some of you may have guessed from Batwoman's posting in this thread she has now been raised to the official and lofty heights of Guild Leadership!

 

She has long been being awesome on Nerd Fitness and now she has suitable superpowers to prove it!

 

Please do congratulate her!

 

Here's her message she wrote an a brief intro!
 

 

Hey Assassins!

 

Your friendly neighborhood Batwoman here and I am becoming a Guild Leader.

 

Why?

 

Well because this community (and more specifically the Assassins guild) has been there to encourage me on my journey to a healthier leveled-up me. Since starting my first six-week challenge I’ve lost 30 lbs, gained strength, accomplished my first chin-up and started to like running (which I know is still weird). I accomplished all of these things due to the great Nerd Fitness community and the constant motivation and inspiration I receive on the forums each day. Now I want to be in a position to give back what I have been given and make this guild the best that there is and I think I can do that rather well from a Guild Leader position.

 

So I’ll be taking on some more leadery things to make the guild run smoothly and awesomely and all other excellent adverbs. Also feel free to get in touch with me if you need anything or if you are looking for gifs, because I’m really good at gifs.

We also had some people we want to give a special shout out to these assassins and give them bravery medals. Paradigm went running in a public park, Batwoman posted progress pictures on the forums, and ApfelStrudi was brave enough to tell her counsellor face to face it wasn't working out. 

 

So let's give another shout out to them for being super brave :) 

Check in soon for next week's most awesome assassins!
