What is The Crucible?
Crucible is a Live Action Roleplay (LARP) game where participants become the characters in a high-adventure story. You can play heroes, villains, and everything in between. You will have opportunities to engage in thrilling combat using safe, but realistic-looking swords (and other weapons), solve puzzles, engage in matters of diplomacy, and band together with allies as you try and beat the challenges that come your way.
The world has settled along its lines. The Five Realms still war and scheme against each other, the boundaries and borders of the nations still shift but nevertheless there has been a measure of stability for many within this generation. Yet, through prophecies, divinations, and the whispers of ethereals across the lands, a portent has arrived. This fragile stability and the fate of the Five Realms hinges upon a Forgotten Island and the events that may transpire there, a place where the legends say human kind first awakened.

The Story So Far
Around the turn of summer in the month of Verdantwood, the nations headed off east for the long lost island of Avyrnas. After stopping briefly at Lands End at the last outpost of known civilisation, they set forth across the Sea of Storms and guided by the Hounds, they all eventually made it to the uncharted island. Fate was not with them though, for the tempest that engulfed them en-route meant that each contingent suffered great
