   What is Swordcraft? 

Swordcraft is a live action roleplay and battle game, where players take the battles from fantasy video games and table top games out on to the field!

Swordcraft is set in the pre-1600’s era, mixed with high fantasy. Witches, orcs, knights in shining armour, faeries, barbarians, vikings, elves, dwarves, and many, many more, take the field every week to claim territory and gold in the land of Althea.

At Swordcraft, we fight with authentic-looking foam weapons – not the boffers of old – and real steel armour, chain maille, corsets, and costumes. But don’t be daunted! Beginners need only to wear comfortable running clothes – swords and shields will be available for your use, training will be provided by our seasoned New Player Trainers, and your first game is FREE!

With over 100 games a year in Melbourne running on both Monday and Friday nights, the biannual week-long event Quest, not to mention our Chapters across Australia, we are Australia’s largest live action roleplay and battle game.
