I’ve been away at Swordcraft: Blood and Gold spring Quest: The Swarm of Sudenburg and now I’m home and straight back into reality. Swordcraft is Australia’s largest LARP event and battle game with upwards of 500 people in attendance and I’m proud to be one of its executive.

Quest was a fantastic week filled with fort and field battles, political alliances, underground shenanigans, tournaments, TrollBall and heaps more, all while looking and feeling like a total bad ass.

I love getting to camp with all my friends for a week and I already have BIG plans for Quest next year.

I have a heap more picture on my Instagram @larplyyyyyyf if you want to check them out. Or follow @Swordcraft_LARP to find out more!
