Live The Magic.
Realms of Adventure is a fully immersive, high fantasy, boffer combat larp based in Sparta, New Jersey.
At the edge of the realm of Adraveth, next to the Whispering Woods, is the small town of New Calendale where life is never calm. This frontier town is a scenic area for sure, but it's no destination for tourists. On the outskirts of civilization it's prone to goblinoid attacks, wild beasts invading from the forests, and all manner of shady characters passing through. Not to mention the common appearance of wandering undead and even extra-planar beings. Still, it's rich with opportunity and the town's settlers are making the most of their home. Many adventuring sorts have also taken up residence here for their own reasons. Maybe it's for the excitement. Maybe it's to escape the past. Maybe it's a calling from their faith. Or maybe they simply have nowhere else to go. Hundreds of opportunists seeking a better life for themselves have begun to flock here. The soil is fruitful and wild game and fresh water is plentiful. The common folk and middle classes have come mainly from within the Twin Kingdoms but a fair amount of Solinarian and demi-human immigrants also call New Calendale home. In addition to farmers, laborers, and artisans, New Calendale has attracted a fair amount of adventurers as well. It has become a popular place to restock and resupply for those going on expeditions and the town seemingly has more than it's fair share of "work" for the thrill seeker, fortune hunter, and glory hound alike. The surrounding lands are wild and untamed providing many adventuring opportunities. Rumors of areas of great magic in the area have been buzzing around, but only time will tell if this is indeed true.
