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 December 2017
The Saga of Kalen Maitel
Written by Maga Shadowfall, Court Bard to King Avalon of the Earthen Court
Encroaching Daemons seeking purchase
A scourge to Earthen realm
Avalon King commands his son
Faerie army with Kalen at helm
Great warrior Kalen leads the charge
Though Daemons rip and rend
Unto the realm of Daemon Lord
Abyssal Throne to defend
Blade to blade, well matched are they
Their duel of deadly cost
Overwhelming is Kalen’s might
Daemon Lord’s plight is lost
Yet gravely injured is our Prince
Mortal wound to neck and face
Temptation offered through the blood
Great power to embrace
Now Kalen is the Daemon Lord
But longing for home and kin
Consequence to others be damned
His plan would now begin
Befriend, deceive, attack and flee
His plan did well advance
Take advantage of good will
Thus Kalen used Travance
Yet heroes with the bravest hearts
Do not give in to fear
Through swift action and great deeds
They drew Kalen near
Hard fought battle, slow and tough
Victory finally found
Blooded and bruised on December earth
Kalen’s form and power bound
Then traveled the Heroes bravely forth
Into Abyss to cleanse his soul
Though he resisted with great might
Purification of Kalen, Travance’s goal
Through great effort they did perform
A great and mysterious rite
Chaos drained, Faerie purged
Though he would die that night
Avalon King beheld his son
Tethered his life to his own
Took him far from Chaos door
To speak to him alone
Forgiveness achieved before his death
Long waiting finally done
Tears of loss on Avalon’s face
Conveyed his Prince to home
Let none forget his gloomy fate
Warrior, Prince and son
Succumbed to Abyssal power great
His sad tale is finally done

Q’aare’zl passed a smooth Stone with the word “Hope” engraved on it gently back and forth between his clawed fingers. Thoughtfully, the Imp gestured to a piece of paper and illusionary script began to flow.
Those foolish mortals let the Succubus, Eris the Frozen Embrace, take the Earth Throne once Kalen was purged of his power. Once that happened, and since Travance was so mean, I decided I would give them to the Jailor. He was looking for something to punish and I would rather have it be those meddlesome mortals than me. But then, some arrogant Argenti somehow used the key to close the portal.
All is not lost, however. Since Eris has formerly been in the service of both you and the Jailor separately, her reign will be an interesting one.
There is much to do Master, I will continue furthering your goals on the prime material until you order me otherwise.
Ever in your Service,
Q’aare’zl the Beguiling Mask”
The script faded as fast as it is written. Then, with a wave of the Londwynian’s hand, the candles in his room went out. Charles Lively stood, pocketed the stone and headed toward the door adjusting his long coat and bowler hat.
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!
