Monday 22nd October, 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 regular 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.

Interactive Moved

Due to another society having a nice dinner in the fancy part of the Citadel, the interactive on Monday has been moved to 7:30 in Vane Tempest, two floors below - go down all the stairs until you're facing the Fonteyn Ballroom doors, and turn left! There's a big window overlooking the river; it's where we had Give it a Go. Hope to see you all there!

We should have a permanent link for downtimes, and you can submit them here:

Downtime deadline is 6pm Thursday. While we will accept some late entries there will be a hard cutoff point after 6pm, so get them in by 6pm to be safe.

Characters get (7 - Your Level) exp from interactives, and you will be told how much exp you earn from charactering and monstering adventures. If you have any questions about downtimes then you can check the Downtime Guide on the rules page, or email
