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 April 2017
A long haired hunter walks through a deserted field; only a few caravans remain. He knows no one will come for them, the rest had left and the circus is gone. His companions are off scavenging, but he has a different objective. There’s something worth much more here than a stack of signed and blank contracts. In a moment, he feels drawn to something: a book. He flips through the journal, noting pages about contracts signed, but finds his way to the beginning of what he was clearly looking for:
Dated November 16th, 1213
Crownhurst has been destroyed. Everyone is dead and my livelihood in ruins. Was I spared from this demonic insanity for a reason? Were that reason torturous, I might agree.
I am beaten and broken. I have nothing.
Tomorrow I will go to join my lost friends and family and be rid of this wretched abyssal world.
I'm not afraid anymore.
The show has come to its end.
Dated November 18th, 1213
It might have been the reason I survived. I was approached yesterday as I stood over the ruins of my home, waiting for the demons to return. She had white hair, yet so young. Like something out of a fairy tale.
She seemed interested in my plight, inquiring if I wished to have back what I lost.
Too peculiar for a passerby, though I've heard of djinn and their powers.
Maybe I can have it all back.
Maybe I can have them all back.
He laughs and waves his hand, summoning another, bearing a Rook on it’s tabard, “Our game of chess has just begun, I hope Edwin is ready for a rematch.”
He sends the Rook on it’s way and sits in silence, musing to himself, “A wish I wish to have. A Travance, all mine, to play my games. I’ll have it soon.”
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!
