Swordcraft is a Medieval Live Action Battle Game and LARP where players fight with reinforced, realistic looking foam rubber weapons and padded arrows. Some of us wear armour, but you don't need anything to play.

Think of it as paintball meets medieval/fantasy battle - carnage with a dash of medieval re-enactment, roleplaying and cosplay. We are inspired by everything from history to LOTR, Warhammer, WoW, Game of Thrones and beyond.

We are based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and meet weekly for battle games at The Western Oval, Parkville. 


  • 6:30 -10:00pm 
  • Sign-in and Armour Up 6:30pm - 7:30pm 
  • Training and Warband Drills 7pm - 8pm
  • Game 8pm - 10pm


Our next event, Swordcraft Quest, will be April, Sunday the 16th through Sunday the 23rd. Public bump-in is on Sunday the 16th. Check out the events page here, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay updated. 

Tickets for Quest are now available!
