BLOOD AND GOLD
THE LARGEST LIVE ACTION ROLEPLAY
AND BATTLE GAME IN AUSTRALIA
ATTENTION - CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
As things continue to develop with this pandemic and with the likelihood of further shutdowns and need for increased social isolation, the Swordcaft Executive has been consulting with our chapters and warband leader representatives to determine the best course of action.
The Swordcraft Executive and Board have now decided that Swordcraft should go into caretaker mode and suspend all games and and events with immediate effect.
This decision encompasses all national chapters and events for which tickets have gone on sale, and will be reviewed each week, though we expect the suspension of games and events will last months rather than weeks.
For those of you who have bought game passes, we will extend the expiry dates by the duration of the shut down. For those of you who have bought tickets to events that have been canceled as a result of this decision, we will ensure that refunds are provided.
We encourage you to all stay in touch and continue to remain a part of the Swordcraft community. In times like these it is more important than ever that you stay in touch with friends and support each other.
We understand that this decision will be disappointing for many of you. It was not made lightly. However, we believe that it’s in everyone’s best interests to work as a community and do what we can to help stall the spread of this virus.
Stay strong and stay safe!
On behalf of the Executive and the Board

WHAT IS SWORDCRAFT?
Swordcraft: Blood and Gold is Australia's largest medieval battle game and live action roleplay event.
Our battles boast the involvement of hundreds of people in large scale field and forest battles, sieges and skirmishes.
At Swordcraft, we fight with authentic-looking foam weapons – not the boffers of old – and real steel armour, chain maille, leather, and high quality costumes.
But don’t be daunted! Beginners need only to wear comfortable running clothes – swords and shields will be available for your use (dependant on Swordcraft Chapter attended), and training provided by our seasoned New Player Trainers.
And your first game is FREE!
Swordcraft began as a small group of friends playing with foam swords in a park in 2011. These friends had a big vision. Since then we have grown into Australia's largest LARP community!
Swordcraft hosts weekly battle games across Australia (check your local chapter for more info), where players are split into two armies and battle it out in a series of rounds and game types to reign victorious.
