ADVENTURES IN CARDBOARD SEEKS TO RE-INSPIRE CREATIVE OUTDOOR PLAY BY IMMERSING PARTICIPANTS IN FANTASTIC WORLDS THAT THEY HELP TO CREATE.
What to Expect
- the creation of individual props, costumes, arms & armor
Build anything you want.
Adventurers begin by designing their own arms and armor: the Realm can be a dangerous place after all. Work independently or collaborate with a team. Add spikes, fins, scales, plates, helmets, gauntlets, shields limited only by your imagination. Go classic or go mythic. Create your heirloom sword, ax, mace, halberd, spear or other deadly accoutrements.
Or... scrap the arms and armor and work instead on magical tomes, artifacts of power, hoods, capes, crowns, wands and rings of power!
Or... work on a farmstead and corral, a shop in the village, a tavern with games of chance, a forest hut for your sorcerer or a library for your guild of wizened sages.
Design and build an actual village to inhabit, employ your trade, build defences or attack mechanisms. Make walls festooned with battlements. Raise towers. Install a gatehouse with portcullis, arrow-loops and drop-holes for defense. Add a smithy, a tavern, an inn, a stables, a thieves' den, a sacred temple, catacombs, anything goes!
