Thursday 22nd February, 1301

A city stands strong amongst the chaos of the north, a bastion of civilisation and freedom. A city rebuilt, a city growing. Fast approaching is a time of new frontiers as the boundaries of might and knowledge are pushed like never before. And in search of these things come travellers, adventurers, scholars and pilgrims, each seeking their share of the power.

Welcome to Durholme.

Durham University Treasure Trap is the world's oldest continuously-running Live Roleplay group. We meet twice a week to play roles in a fantasy mediaeval world, either in the congenial atmosphere of a mediaeval inn for our Tavern Nights each Monday, or in the woods around Durham for Adventures each weekend. We also have weekly weapons practices to develop combat skills which are useful in the game, run an annual banquet and a weekend-long end-of-year game, and send groups to larger live roleplay events around the country.

Web Officer Request of the Society Membership

If anyone spots something erroneously in wrong place on website; or something you think should be somewhere is missing, then please e-mail treasure.trap@gmail.com to let us know. For instance, the refs reported that the Geomancy tree was absent from the skill-trees overview chart (http://community.dur.ac.uk/treasure.trap/rules/chart.php) today, and is now corrected to feature there.

Lost at the Crossroads! Give It A Go!

Hail, fellow travellers!

You were on the journey of your lifetime, travelling across the world by taking a shortcut through the plane of Gateways, bartering your stories for passage to absolutely anywhere. But something strange happened: as you walked through Gateways' unreal realm, it seemed to shudder. A voice from all around you boomed for you to get out, and a portal opened. Not knowing what else to do, you leapt through. Now you and other travellers find yourselves lost, somewhere unknown... potentially anywhere. With no way to get back to Gateways, can you find out where you are and how to get home? It's a dangerous world out there... and the dangers may be closing in. Durham University Treasure Trap is the world's oldest continuously-running live-action roleplay (LARP) society.

Come join us in our fantasy world - meet friendly characters and explore your surroundings, ally with new friends or betray them in the dark, with all clothing, combat-safe weapons, and armour provided by the society!

Give It A Go requires no previous experience at LARP, and is open to anyone. All characters are pre-generated, with something to interest everyone.

Wednesday 24th 7pm in Vane Tempest, Level D, DSU.
