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.
Prologue for January, 2020
Over a crisp white path, twelve adventurers travel on only a whimsy and a hunch. Their footsteps play the tune of anticipation as each crunch moves from unison to sporadic. A tune follows them and fends off their woes as they stumble upon a small town just outside the proper.
Six more adventurers yet, lay buried in stacks of knowledge, bound parchment, in the form of a mountainous pile. They study with a curiosity voracious enough to have the books themselves even yearn for diligent eyes to grace their brittle pages. An impossible knock at the door spells motion not only here, but in another place unnamed.
That place holding another two heroes, whom should encounter the unknown.
Travance lay a white abyss for weeks. Only now did the snow begin to subside. Only now did its vile frigid form begin to take that of water and breathe respite into the frost-entrapped flora, fauna, and structure below. An odd silence breaches the air, do the animals still hide? Do the common folk not venture out into these white hills, to seek refuge from their imprisonment? Who wouldn't after such harsh storms? But a quit panic is soon to rise. For assuredly everything may seem fine in this brief moment, but that is not the actuality.
Silence walks but a ravenous path.
A family is cast into panic.
It emerges not of, but from the storm.
“You better clasp your mouth real tight, lest you wind up gone.”
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!
