King Val-dan knowing his people cannot survive the siege against his home swallows his pride and asks to bring the Dark Dwarfs claim to the only land still strong after the devastation, Travance. The Dark Dwarf leader accepts and the two delegations head toward Travance proper in hopes of a peaceful resolution…
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.
Resources contains downloads, the feedback form, as well as links to websites of interest to the Knight Realms community.
