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 July 2017
Many years ago Veren’ves Thoran passed away surrounded by his family and loved ones, saving the two he cherished and missed most. The granddaughters that had vanished, along with the tower they called home, some sixty years before.
He had spent many years and much of his life dedicated to finding them but age and mortality eventually crept up on even him. Arriving for Judgement, the ancient elf bade Galladel to grant him one request. Veren’ves would not accept his final rest until he could be joined by his beloved granddaughters, Illthan’ves and Faruln. The God agreed, and time passed.
In Travance, the tower overlooking the Bay of Lune was remade. Each brush stroke creating a world within a world. A world created by the heroes of Travance, who had put a bit of themselves into every tiny detail, and made it a home.
Veren’ves waited on the tower’s steps, a small black cat rubbing against his legs. His God stood beside him. A frame appeared before him, showing the worried faces of strangers. With a gentle nudge, Galladel urged him forward. Stepping up to the frame, he called to his grandchildren who grasped his hands with unbridled delight. The three figures ascended the steps to the building, looking out over their new home and smiled as the painting back in Travance slowly reverted to a simple image. A family reunited in a living painted world, forever to remain.

The spell cage that contained the inert paint thrummed quietly with magical energy. The liquid inside sloshed gently within the container, no longer able to hold even a simple shape. Day by day its residual power drains away, the physical plane forever safe from Faruln’s well meaning paint.
But a secret once learned cannot be unlearned. We can only hope no one tries to recreate her mistake.
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!
