It’s a cold autumn night in inner city Melbourne, and bloodlust is in the air. Spread out over a football field, hundreds of men and women are waging war. With colourful robes, pointed elf ears, plate armour and myriad fantasy costumes of varying quality, these role-players have come from all over the city to immerse themselves in a fantasy world of powerful magic, perilous adventure and epic battles. Above the clamour of fierce combatants, someone bellows, ‘blood and courage!’ This is Swordcraft – Australia’s largest and arguably most public live action role-playing (LARP) organisation.
