 Fold, Store, and Go!

From Burden to Battle-Ready!

Preparing for a LARP event is like solving a logistics puzzle; every piece must fit just right to create the immersive experience your crew craves. From bulky costumes to essential camping gear, the challenge of packing everything into a car can be daunting, overshadowing the excitement of the upcoming adventure.

With our Compact Gear, we have attempted to solve one of the challenges of larp logistics, providing portable gear that maintains durability without sacrificing space. Our Compact weapons and tentpoles, can be split into several smaller pieces. This ensures the equipment will even fit into a small car or bubble from the fifties, allowing you to focus on play prep, excitement, and hype!

Innovative Weapon Design

At the heart of our Compact weapons is a unique bolt system, an engineering marvel that allows items to be split into shorter, manageable pieces easily. This feature enables quick assembly and disassembly, ensuring that transportation and storage are no longer battles you must fight. From the drawing board to the battlefield, our design team focused on creating a user-friendly system that doesn’t compromise the quality or authenticity of your LARP experience.

Additionally, in the future, we will be releasing more weapon pieces, banner holders, scepters and accessories that will allow you to customise your gear even more!

 Compact Tent Poles


When considering a suitable tent for yourself or your band of bold adventurers, it is usually the shape, size and colours that first come to mind. Only at a later stage do other aspects come to mind regarding the overall functionality of the tent. One of these aspects is the tent poles: A less flashy yet essential component of keeping the elements of nature at bay. Those capable of conjuring Leomund's Tiny Hut do not need tent poles, but the rest of us undoubtedly do. On behalf of our tents, it is time to take a stand!


An Old Challenge!

The challenge of transporting mediaeval-inspired tents goes back to… well, the Middle Ages! It is no secret that a canvas tent's sturdy and roomy qualities come with a heavy and cumbersome price that requires a well-built carriage, chivalrous car or specially trained donkeys. But there are improvements to be found that can help protect your adventurous journey from a critical failure. Just look at the case of King Jarl Skulldrinker: What to do when their beloved canvas tent faced an impossible transportation task? It was a critical failure! They did not know what to do. All hope was lost! Until an artisan designer from Epic Armoury came to their rescue with the new compact tent poles! Compact! Convenient! Congratulations!


A Talk About Tent Poles

Jests aside, regular tent poles and compact tent poles each have their advantages and disadvantages. Your best option depends on your specific needs. The standard tent poles are cheaper to buy, more expensive to ship, more straightforward to set up and perfect if your group uses a van for transporting multiple tents. The compact tent poles never exceed 110 centimetres in length and are made of the same durable powder-coated iron as the regular tent poles. They are well-suited for transporting gear in a regular-sized car. Have a look as Gabriele and René demonstrate and discuss the design of our tent poles.
