Imaginez un lieu où des Jurassiens et des Genevois se porteraient des coups d’estoc sans se blesser. Imaginez une heure où des Français se tairaient pour écouter des Vaudois leur expliquer comment les jeux vidéos créent des personnages intéressants. Imaginez une convention où on pourrait voir les nouveaux projets de GN en avant-première le midi, […]
Here is my traditional report of the “nodal point” Nordic larp convention, this year held in Haraldvangen, Norway. For general frivolous comments, I guess part 1 of my Solmukohta 2012 report still applies. Maybe more waxed moustaches for men and more orange hair for women than last year? Anyway, on to the goodies.
Once a year, larpers gather in Paris to talk about their hobby, share tips and schmooze at the GNiales. Originally directed at a French-speaking audience of larp organizers and «players who want to become organizers», since last year the event has gotten much more international, with a full track of items […]
American larpers should play more one-shot games! In 2007, I contributed a few segments called Little differences to Gamer:The Podcasting, a cool larp podcast.

This is the final struggle!

I’ve already mentioned that Solmukohta isn’t the best convention for practical, hands-on stuff, but here are the most down to earth program items I attended.
The overview of the larp Cost of Living (Russia, 2011) by Alexey Fedoseev, feat. Slava and Diana. […]
OK, we’re nearly there. You’re probably just as tired reading this as I am writing this, but I need to get all those impressions down in writing. We all need closure, right?
America, fuck yeah!
I was very happily surprised to see a whole bunch of americans at Solmukohta. Not only because it’s nice […]
After Knudepunkt 2011, I decided to attend Solmukohta 2012 for three main reasons, in no particular order:
meeting larpers from around the world discovering stuff with pure shock value that makes me go «Nordic larpers are sick» discovering stuff that makes me go «hmmm… I’m gonna dump 90% of what this person said but I […]
