Dagorhir, The Realm of Taurendor


The Realm of Taurendor is a chapter of Dagorhir Battle Games, located in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.

What is Dagorhir?

Founded in 1977 and with over 5,000 members worldwide, Dagorhir is one of the oldest and most popular medieval combat sports around.

We focus on fast-paced, hard contact medieval foam combat. Our realm is home to fighters of all types: stick-jocks, medievalists, chivalric knights, and vikings.

Dagorhir Battle Games combines fast-paced, full-contact medieval combat simulation with elements of live action role-playing. Encompassing elements of both history and fantasy, Dagorhir is both a game and a sport. Participants experience their fantasies on a variety of levels, from combat to merry-making, music and arts & sciences.

Our battles and practices are known for being some of the most intense around, and we guarantee that you will leave any event not just exhausted but also having learned something new. Anyone is welcome to come and learn from us, as we consider mentorship to be the most noble quality of all.
