About the Event

(Ruleset: Darkon)

You are invited to join us for an epic multi-day medieval fantasy LARP celebration.  

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. For the first time ever, we will also offer family camping for families with younger persons under their care in a nice family camping area on the site.

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. April 6th we kick things off with a welcome party which you will be invited to celebrate with us.

Thursday features the start of our roleplay adventure that encourages a healthy mix of roleplay and battle scenarios. The adventures will span into Friday and the storyline is centered around the long rumored treasure of a famed sunken ship, the Seacrown, and vying factions seeking to recover this fortune for personal gain, or to fill their warchest for the coming Crown War. Thursday Evening features an evening Fireside Bardic Contest.

Friday Afternoon (in addition to the continuing adventure) 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 long declared his claim to the Throne, but the intervention of shadowy adversaries have delayed the anticipated moment until now. The challenger’s forces will face off against the reigning High King Alfred Goldenhue’s army. With whom will you stand?

Saturday features a royal court with awards for champions from the weekend and more. There will also be knighting ceremonies for knights this year, to include special ceremonies for some well established knights who never got to experience a proper knighting ceremony.

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. This is a NEW site for Darkon and we are very excited for it. Special rule for this site: on the grounds of the Winery NO personal alcohol purchased outside of the winery is allowed. Any personal fare you bring should remain in your camp. Count on a good time brought to you by 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.
