"At Legends of Exile, we strive for an immersive and collaborative roleplaying experience, whether you are a first time player or an old hand."
A full immersion LARP in North Carolina
Thousands of years ago, all people were cast from the land of the gods, known as The Eternal Lands. The true reason has been obscured, and only survives to this day as varied myths and legends. But, the outcome is well known: all those expelled from that land were banished across the sea. Throughout history there have always been attempts to complete the treacherous journey to return to the Eternal Lands, but none have been successful. Those that try recount that it seemed as though they were actively rebuffed, and all efforts to progress were futile.
Fifty years ago, a curse called the Torpor struck the world and caused an event coined "The Great Sleep." Nearly one in three people was afflicted by a deep and supernatural sleep, unable to be roused from their unconsciousness. Even now, the Torpor continues with no end in sight, and more and more fall victim to The Great Sleep every day.
As time goes on, some never wake and the Great Sleep claims many lives. However, for all those caught within dreams, some Dreamers have overcome their Nightmare and begun to awake. Not only do they tell incredible, horrifying stories of their ordeal, all that awoke have found themselves forever physically changed.
Soon, it was discovered that those who wake from The Great Sleep were no longer blocked from travelling to the Eternal Lands. YOU are one of these "Awakened." You, and those like you, have decided to join the expeditions and venture forth under the banner of your chosen Faction, all while learning to understand your new abilities.

2024 Event Dates
March 1-3 (special)
Legends of Exile offers an immersive experience with an open ended system, allowing character customization for all playstyles. If you are completely new to LARPing, welcome! And we suggest you take a look at the information about Getting Started.
Our rules system and plot writing team strive to support the spectrum of LARPing styles, from desire for combat to a weekend of 100% roleplay.
Join us on an adventure like no other. With events held six times a year at Singletary State Park in southeastern North Carolina, we have hundreds of acres to discover new friends and enemies alike.
From the same great team that brought you a decade of Lands of Exile LARP, Legends of Exile is produced by King Heron Events. We are queer and woman owned.
What kind of LARP is Legends of Exile?
Legends of Exile is what’s considered a medium combat, high fantasy, full immersion LARP. Our main goal is to provide an experience for our players that makes them feel like they are in another world.
Please note, we are an age 18+ game and require proof of vaccination for Covid-19 to attend.
Our world is reactive to the character decisions.
Our plot team is always working to create the story with the players, in hopes that we can make your impacts felt throughout the world and within the story. We use Post Event Letters to keep an organic story with meaningful continuity.
We strive to be a full immersion LARP.
Our setting is much like that of Lord of the Rings or other fantasy novels. There are fantastical creatures and magic. Costuming is based around a "high fantasy medieval" garb aesthetic. Our players, as well as our staff, are costumed in appropriate garb for the fantasy genre, and stay in character for the full game from beginning to end. Plot, as well as players, provide real handmade props for quests and puzzles.
We are a medium combat LARP.
We perform melee combat using realistic foam weapons with our own original combat system, as well as spellcasting with packets filled with bird seed, and padded arrows for LARP archery.
We foster an active, caring community.
Both players and team work to create a safe, engaging space for fantasy lovers of all types. We have guidelines for safe immersion, as well as Post Event Letters for post-game feedback. Unofficial events, such as craft days or photoshoots, happen throughout the year. Join our Facebook Group to stay up to date with the community!
