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 and sometimes for larger weekend events.

REMEMBER! We are at our next 8 day camping festival from Sunday to Sunday 18th to 25th of September 2016 (see event page for details).
