Swordcraft

Swordcraft Quest: Blood and Gold

  • 15-22 April 2019

A Warhammer themed LARP.

Swordcraft – an inaugural new story line Quest starting in April 2019. This is the start of the new Warhammer themed LARP which will be located in the town of Sudenburg, a frontier town on the Old Silk road in the Border Princes. Sudenburg is surrounded by wilderness, hostile human and non-human tribes, the ruins of ancient civilisations, and rumours of untold treasure.

Sudenburg is ruled by the Council of 4 – Merchant Princes and Princesses who are always looking for swords to hire, while the people are striving to make a decent (or not so decent) living. It is a town where you are as likely to die in battle as with a knife in your guts. A town where bold adventure awaits.

This event is not open to the public, attendees must be fully registered.
