  • Featured Question:

    When is next Quest?

Quest dates will be announced as soon as possible. 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.

         When will tickets for next Quest be on sale?

As with above, ticket sales will be announced across all Swordcraft media platforms, as soon as possible.


  • Where is Swordcraft?

Swordcraft is currently being held at the Western Oval, Park St, Parkville VIC 3052.

  • What time is Sign-in?

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?

Go to our Pre-Registration page to pre-reg 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.

  • Do Monday night games require pre-registration?

No, at this time, Monday nights do not have a Pre-Registration option. When at a Monday night, a regular queue will form to sign in.

  • Does Swordcraft have chapters outside of Melbourne? 

Yes indeed we do! Please check out this page for a list of our chapters along with a Google Map of 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, and Twitter. 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 16-17 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 16-17 may attend.

  • Can I attend Quest if I am under 18?

Yes, all ages are welcome at Quest, though only people over 16 may participate in battles. Those players aged 16 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, HOWEVER the legal guardian for under 18’s MUST BE PRESENT at Quest. Under 18’s are not to be left on site with no guardian present, and under 16’s must be accompanied by a guardian or responsible adult at all times.

  • 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!

  • Can I arrive at the site for Quest before the dates that were announced? A day early?

No. You may arrive NO EARLIER than the start date listed for Quest. There are no games running at all on Sunday, and that day is dedicated solely to people arriving, driving on site, setting up tents and campsites, walls, etc., and having a walk around to get familiar with the site. This includes interstate arrivals. Please organise arriving on Sunday morning, rather than Saturday night. Saturday is set-up day for Swordcraft Staff only.

  • Do Monday and Friday night 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. Monday and Friday night games do not run during Quest. They re-start the Friday after the event finishes.
