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 March 2018
The caverns of the Ixarachne grew restless as word spread throughout the people that Shal’ixenthenessa had fallen in battle. With newfound confidence, the insurrection was swift to overtake her remaining supporters. Under the orders of Lady Ariska’vorath — no, Queen Ariska’vorathet, as she continued to remind herself — the loyalists were to be allowed to continue living in the caverns of the Rift, and no harm would come to them as long as they maintained their distance from the subjects of Kormyre.
Looking over her new territory, Queen Ariska’vorathet surveyed her people with pride. Soon, the egg liberated from Shal’ixenthenessa’s tyrannical grip would hatch, and the children would be raised with kindness rather than fear. Acclimating the brood to the ways of Kormyre would be a challenge, yes, but the knowledge that the oppressive ways of the past were over gave Ariska’vorathet great confidence in her people. No longer would innocent lives be sacrificed to further the life of the brood; no longer would slavery and despotism be the driving force behind the success of the upper castes of Ixarachne; no longer would they live in fear of the creatures of the Rift. The heroes of Travance saw to it that Ariska’vorathet’s new brood would have safety and sanctuary as subjects of Kormyre, and that the sun would rise upon their new home every day until the end of days.
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!
