Foam/Latex Weapon Info
Approved LARP Weapons
The Story School takes the safety of our heroes very seriously. We engage in active, play combat and the tools that we use for this reflect our desire to keep our heroes both safe and engaged. Please note that no hero needs to own their own weapon to participate as we will always make sure every hero that does not have their own is provided a foam short sword to all for full participation
Foam weapons: Story School Vendor
We currently only allow weapons from our own vendor who has been manufacturing foam weapons for decades. You can order them below in a variety of colors and lengths.
All heroes undergo weapon training to make sure they are safe with their weapons.
Height to weapon length recommendations: recommendation is short swords for those heroes under 5 feet tall and personal preference for those over 5 feet tall.
We accept a larger variety of vendors including Epic Armory and LARP distribution. We have a selection of those weapons below. If you have a specific latex weapon you'd like to bring, please send a message to email@example.com for pre-approval. We also test all weapons as camp for safety to make sure there is no damage to the weapon that sacrifices its integrity.
No ranged weapons. Most latex weapons come to a point and throwing the weapon increases the chance of accidentally hitting a hero or "monster" in the eye. We provide and allow for heroes to make their own spell packets for ranged attacks
See weapon length and blade length restrictions above
All participants wanting to use latex weapons will undergo special training to ensure their safety with these denser weapons
For the safety of all our heroes, we do not allow homemade weapons to make contact against another person at camp. Heroes are invited to bring them as props and costuming to look the part of the hero they have for themselves. We have approved homemade shields (since they don't make contact with anything other than other tools/weapons) and can provide guidelines for those if requested.
