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.
Lagorúthon sat in his safehouse, panting, his red shirt drenched in unaccustomed sweat. He had barely escaped Travance with his life intact. The people of Travance had caught on far quicker than any of the sponsors had anticipated and as a result, the game had become a disaster. "I knew I should have backed another. That damned holy roller was worthless. In a town with as much death and corruption as Travance, you'd think she'd have been able to get at least ONE kill." He poured himself a glass of wine and frowned. "It was that damned Crux! If not for his foolish pride, we never would have been found out. At the very least, I hope those bloodthirsty Travancians killed that useless Crusader."
Mother Cassidy watched through the small window as her wayward "sponsor" paced about muttering to himself. This was the one who had tricked her into leaving Loez. The one who had attempted to make a mockery of her holy work. She had followed him in secret from Travance to this place he thought safe. She would send him on to Galladell's judgement, and should she go with him, the Crusader would open her arms and receive His judgement no matter the outcome. "No one will come between me and the Judge of Souls' work," she smiled, as she hefted her mace. "No one ever again."

Somewhere in Kormyre, a man sat in a lavishly appointed room. "Well, it was amusing while it lasted. The way they all scrambled about, not knowing when the next to strike would be. I understand some escaped as well. They are loose ends. To clean them up for us. Especially The Spider. You said his Necromancy was ripped out of him by a White Sorceress? Fascinating. He has ceased to entertain us, anyway, so like any insect, he should be killed like the inconvenient pest he now is."
A man in the uniform of a valet bowed and turned to leave. Before he could leave the room, the first man spoke up again.
"And Crux? Next time you are asked to participate in one of our little games, if you allow your foolish arrogance and hubris to lead to the premature spoiling of the game like you did here, I will personally see to your execution myself. You are dismissed."
The valet paused before briefly nodding his head and leaving. The man sat in his chair, ruminating.
"Crux had the highest count, but with Sheng Lao dead, he cannot have won the game. Since The Spider had the next highest kill ratio, I suppose that means I win this round."
He allowed himself a small smile.
"I wonder what our next game shall be?"
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!
