Blood and Gold:
A Warhammer themed LARP
Sunday 24 September - Sunday 1 October 2023
Swordcraft Ltd invites you to attend the next chapter in the Blood and Gold saga.
The Princes of Sudenburg - Companies, Banners and Sebatian’s Keep
With the death of Prince Sebastian, Sudenburg is in turmoil and now the drums of war can be heard in the surrounding hills. Prince Eric, Lady Rafaela and Dahliya the Desert Rose seek to set aside their differences and unite against threats both within and without. To that end they have made the call for the knights, soldiers, sell swords and adventures to form into companies to defend the town. The pay and pillage promised is good, the fame and glory boundless and the appeal to patriotism stirring!
Though questions still remain about who was responsible for the death or Sebastian, the Magistrate and others…
The aim of the event is to create player driven contest over the course of Quest. As organisers it's our job to set the boundaries, make the scene and create the sandbox for the players to explore our part of the Warhammer Old World.
We also recognize that what Swordcraft organises well is battles, while players are the ones who create the best roleplay in the immersive atmosphere of Sudenburg. Accordingly the overall Quest format will be around the battles for control of Sudenburg, with the Story providing a framework for the battles and key roleplay events while providing lots of space for player driven roleplay.
Swordcraft Quest is a Warhammer themed LARP located in the town of Sudenburg, a frontier town on the Old Silk road in the Border Princes. Sudenburg is surrounded by wilderness, hostile human and non-human tribes, the ruins of ancient civilizations, and rumors of untold treasure.
The setting is both the in-game and real world year of 2023 – in-game this is during the age of three emperors and the beginnings of the Vampire Wars. For more information see our player guides which were released in 2018 for Blood and Gold.
Do you have what it takes to survive in this grim world of perilous adventure?
What you can expect
Like previous Quests, we will provide you with the basics: an overarching storyline to provide flavour and kickstart your adventures, food vendors on site, toilets, showers, drinking water (though its always a good idea to bring your own), separate washing up water, ample parking. You will need to bring your own firewood if you wish to have a camp fire.
Old stone walls crisscrossing the property (please do not climb or try to cross them).
Lots of wild life including koalas, kangaroos, red deer and wild pigs.
Nearest town and V-line train station is 15 minutes away.
