A LARP for the New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania Tri-State Area
Who will you be?™
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.
Epilogue for October 2016
A merchant's wife, no different from any other, wandered home the night after the Feast. She had a successful day, making a fair sum of money for all her late husband's wares, and only returning to her home with a small inventory to pack away for the next day’s trip into the proper. Her husband would surely have been proud of her work today, for it could pay for a proper burial and feed their children for a month! This was her break from the troubles that had just recently befallen her family and surely was a sign of a light breaking through the clouded days prior.
She walked home in the cool, still air of the encroaching fall weather, meandering home on her husband's usual route. Crime had dropped recently, so she wasn’t so worried about any bandits coming for her or her money. The nocturnal creatures scurried about along the treeline, avoiding any civilized life that would cross by their domain, and so the noise of scuttling creatures didn’t bother the woman all too much.
The time spent in the proper during the Baron's great Feast was harrowing, but she always looked to the heroes that populated the Barony as a net of safety. Anything that resounded from the woods was staved off by the knowledge that those same heroes were always there to protect her and many others from harm; always doing the best job they can to make the barony a better place. This gave her solace, knowing that she could walk these roads and someone, somewhere was being vigilant against the dangers in the dark; someone was avenging the evils that would separate families and burn homes.
The merchant's wife carried on along the road, forging her way home, knowing the monster that killed her husband was slain and her husband avenged. She went home that night to tell her children of great heroes and wondrous deeds, hoping one day, they too could grow up to be the heroes that stand against the monsters in the dark.
Main Menu is where 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.
Events tells you the When, Where, and How of the actual game events, be they the monthly weekend long sessions or the special In-Game and Out of Game functions.
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.
Finally, be sure to look around and have fun! Enjoy your stay!
