Aurum hosts monthly in-character events at several locations around New Jersey. Players are encouraged to register for events in advance through our website, with options to pay to play as their own personal Player Character (PC), or to volunteer at no cost plus additional thank-you bonuses as a Full-Time Non-Player Character (FTNPC). First-time players always play their first PC event free (a discount which indefinitely carries over if the player chooses to FTNPC until they choose to play a PC).

To purchase bonus XP, additional SDAs, or backbuy events, please visit our online Shop (must be purchased separately from event tickets).
