Swordcraft (VIC, Australia) changes to Warhammer LARP April 2019

Hi Guys, Tim/TinTango here
it’s been a while since I’ve been on Diatribe, having moved to Australia 4 years ago- it’s nice to be back! (-albeit briefly)

I just wanted to let you know that the big Swordcraft LARP in Victoria Australia (the one that has battles in Melbourne every Fridays) is moving to a Warhammer Setting from 2019 onwards. Their next week-long game has already been posted on Facebook as April 15-22nd 2019. As I’m keen on going, I just wanted to let you guys know in case anyone wants to come across- there is a 30% Discount for international players, and the ability to hire a marquee as well which could be handy. I’ve pasted the important details below but for more info, join the Swordcraft group on fb:

Swordcraft Quest: Blood and Gold - April 2019

A Warhammer themed LARP.

Swordcraft is proud to invite you to attend our 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 (map and specific location will be released closer to the event). 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 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.

We wanted to release dates and a pricing structure, so that you as our player base can organise yourselves in order to not miss out. We can honestly say, that next Quest will be the biggest event we have ever run. The setting is both the in-game and real world year of 2019 – in-game this is during the age of three emperors. For more information see our player communication which was released on the 15th of August 2018. Over the next few months we’ll be introducing our player base to the world of Sudenburg , which will include some ideas on locations and costume types.

Save the dates - tickets will go on sale at 12:00pm on the 1st of November 2018.

Alcohol: There will be a tavern in Sudenburg providing alcoholic beverages and meals. The tavern will encompass an entire block with the Casino and other structures located within this space. There will be no BYO in camps. The tavern will have daily happy hour prices and will maintain competitive prices for the entire event – it will be an In-Character (IC) tavern and will be set up in theme. The red-line area will be increased to cover a greater portion of the town centre.

Wristbands MUST be worn at all times while onsite. It is the attendee’s responsibility to get a replacement if their wristband is lost. Failure to adhere to this rule can result in immediate expulsion from the event.

Under age players remain the responsibility of their parent or legal guardian at all times, regardless of whether the parent or legal guardian is present on site or not. Swordcraft Ltd assumes no responsibility for under age players.

The registration number of any vehicle you will be parking at the event MUST be included in the drivers’ ticket registration. If the vehicle changes you must inform the event manager before the event. It is a condition of entry that you accept liability for any damage and costs incurred if your vehicle is towed if it is not registered with us and/or we need to move it for safety or operational reasons.

Setting up your camp and being in costume:

Our quest events are 24 hour IC costumed events.

Bump in and out days are OOC.

Tuesday 16 April to Sunday 21 April are IC times.

Players will have full access to the site for set up and packing up their camps on bump in and bump out day. If you require vehicular access to the camp areas or town during these days please contact the event manager closer to event date.

Players wishing to set up or pack up their camp from 16 April to 20 April will need to do so in costume and will not have access to their camp by vehicle. Access roads are not far away.
