Knight Realms is a Live Action Role-Playing Game (also known as a "LARP") that involves both action (live mock combat, using padded "boffer" weapons) and atmosphere (acting focusing on drama, personal interactions, and other social activity). We are based at our own land in Sparta, New Jersey, with a player base that extends into the New York and Pennsylvania areas, and around the world.
Throughout all of Arawyn heroes and would-be heroes felt the pulse of magic. It washed over and through each individual like a wave. The moment after it touched each person, he or she instinctively felt it was benevolent. In the month that followed the effect of the pulse refined in each person. To some it was a feeling much like a bolstering effect, making them feel braver than they did before. To others it made them feel protective and yet others felt a righteous anger sweep through them. All, however, urgently felt the desire to return to Travance Proper…

Balfurous triumphed as he witnessed the turmoil the re-forging of Bloodtide caused Travance. “It is time to create them,” he laughed, “bring the specimen to me!” In moments, several creatures were brought before the Demon Lord, some willing, some in chains. Balfurous gathered his will and touched each creature while chanting in an ancient language. Upon his touch, each individual was briefly infused with a cold blue light. The light gathered to one point on each chest and formed into a symbol. No two symbols were the same. “You will be my most powerful creations yet, my Mauvais!” Balfurous seated himself once again on his icy throne, obviously taxed from the ritual. He addressed his creations, “Now that those fools have expended so much effort to create such an exquisitely evil weapon, the protections around my gem have weakened! I can now see its presence more clearly. You will go and retrieve it for me. Gather a force, each of you, and leave immediately!”

Whispers, so many whispers that they are nearly shouts.
“It has been re-forged! It is priceless! Our family would never want for anything ever again if I could just get my hands on it!”
“I must have it for my collection. I will do ANYTHING to get it.”
“We must avenge our fallen brother and regain this powerful weapon. “
“We must avenge the death of Her son and destroy this accursed weapon.”
“Did you read the message board in the Dragon’s Claw Inn? He actually admitted to having it…”
Knight Realms is the main menu for information. Here you can find details for New Players, more about the staff, and the logistical workings of Knight Realms. We give you the rundown on the organization from what it is to how to be a part of it, and everything you need for your first event. If you are a visitor to this site, this section will tell you what we are all about. Parents or guardians of Knight Realms youth members can find information in here as well.
Game Play is more about the game, and what goes into playing it - Role-Playing (Acting), Props (Weapons and Armor), and other useful information about what makes the game so much fun. The Rulebook (also in the upper right hand corner) is always available for information about how the game itself is played.
Community is where you can find the Photo Gallery, filled with event photos, movies, fan art and more. You can also access the official Forums where the Knight Realms community discusses a myriad of important and fun topics. In the Forums new members can ask questions and generic announcements are made here as well.
In-Game is where you can study up on the world of Arawyn, the fictional realm which serves as the back-drop for the adventure and drama of Knight Realms. The Baron's Manor contains the laws and structure of the Barony in which the game is set, while The Baronial Library is an archive of knowledge about the world of Arawyn - with the last of your guttering candle flame, delve into the laws, maps, people, and cultures, which color it all.
