What are Swordcraft's locations?
Swordcraft Melbourne is currently being held at the Western Oval, Park St, Parkville VIC 3052.
What time is sign-in (Swordcraft Melbourne)?
Sign-in is between 6:30 – 7:30. You will be given a wristband that must be worn AT ALL TIMES while playing. It does not have to be visible, but it must be accessible if a marshal, volunteer, or organiser asks to see it. Players start arriving around 6pm, to line up, kit up, and socialise before the game. The game starts at 8pm.
How do I pre-register for a Friday night game (Swordcraft Melbourne)?
Go to our Player Registration page to pre-register for a Friday night game. This streamlines sign-in, and gets everyone through faster, so that you can get back to kitting up and training with your warband.
Does Swordcraft have chapters outside of Melbourne?
Yes indeed we do! Please check out our Swordcraft Chapters page for a list of our chapters along with their locations and contact information.
What if it’s raining? Does Swordcraft play in the rain and bad weather?
Yes, Swordcraft still happens during rain, wind, cold, heat, and most forms of bad weather. If for any reason Swordcraft will not being running, it will be immediately announced on the Facebook Page, Group, Twitter and Instagram Story. If no announcements have been made, you can assume that Swordcraft will run at the regularly scheduled time.
Can I play if I am under 18?
Yes. You can play if you are 15-17 years of age, with the consent of a parent or legal guardian. The Legal Consent form can be found HERE . After the form is received, players aged 15-17 may attend.
Can I attend Quest if I am under 18?
Yes, all ages are welcome at Quest, though only people over 15 may participate in battles. Those players aged 15 and 17 must have the same Legal Consent form from Friday nights filled out by a legal guardian. Friday night consent forms carry over for Quest.
Do I have to play on Friday nights, or can I come just to watch?
You are more than welcome to attend a Friday night game just to watch! We encourage spectators, and usually have quite a few people cheering on the sidelines, eating, taking pictures, and enjoying the game. Families bring their kids for a bit of fun, and players are usually happy to pose for pictures with you if you ask. If you take some cool pictures or videos, we’d love to see them on Swordcraft’s Facebook page, or tag our social medias @Swordcraft_Larp !
When is next Quest?
Quest dates are announced as soon as possible on our Facebook Page and can be found on our Home page. If the Quest dates are not posted, then that information is simply not available yet. We always make huge announcements when the dates are set, and make available on all Swordcraft media platforms the dates and locations.
Do weekly games still run during Quest events?
No. During our week long event, Quest, all Swordcraft resources will be moved toward making Quest the best event that it can be. Friday night games do not run during Quest. They re-start the Friday after the event finishes.
