Bellum Aeternus is a 4 day/night festival of all things Darkon. We welcome veteran Darkonians, cross-gamers, and new players to come out and join us as we prepare to experience our Ninth annual rendition of this event (which is the single largest multi-day LARP event in the Maryland/Virginia/DC area). Becoming a member is easy, at the event you will just need to be 16-17 years of age with a guardian's consent on a waiver OR 18 years or older signing your own waiver.

Below are just a sampling of somethings that attendees can experience at Bellum Aeternus:

Wednesday is Welcome Day, spend the day setting up your camp getting settled. September 22nd is also the Birthday of one Mr. Bilbo Baggins which you will be invited to celebrate.

Thursday features the start of our role play adventure that encourages a healthy mix of roleplay and battle scenarios. The adventures will span into Friday and the storyline is centered around wartime preperations for the coming Crown War.

Thursday Evening features an evening Fireside Bardic Contest.

Friday Afternoon features an afternoon tournament of skill called the Annual Firebrand tournament organized by members of No Quarter!'s very own House Firebrand. Compete for glory against boffer fighters from near and far.

Saturday features a few fun things including:

A medieval fantasy arts and sciences competition. Submit your crafts for judgement against fellow artisans of the realm and compete for prizes and glory.

Battle Game Scenarios- We have some fun stuff planned. Count on us running some classic favorites like “kick the can” and “Halcon’s Warrior Bridge”, as well as new scenarios.

The Crown War…. The crowning event of the weekend will be on Saturday. Sir Kai Firebrand has declared his claim to the Throne. The challenger’s forces will face off against the reigning High King Alfred Goldenhue’s army. With whom will you stand?

Royal court with awards for champions from the weekend and more. There will also be knighting ceremonies for several knights this year.

Saturday night concludes with the gladiatorial combat spectacle known as pit fights.

On All Days:

Vendor Row- In year’s past this has been where you can find fine merchants for food, jewelry, LARP weapons, armor, bags, garb, furs, furnishings, and more.

A site with solid amenities- community firepit, showers, food vendors, and ample parking.

A dedicated and helpful staff made up of volunteers from the realm of Darkon.

We hope to see you there! We will check back and post more news on all things Bellum Aeternus as it becomes available.
