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?

My first foray into English-language larp documentation (aka bragging about my larp scene in an international setting) was a talk about larp in Switzerland at Knudepunkt 2011.

Les conventions de GN, c’est comme les GN: tant qu’on n’y a jamais participé, on ne comprend pas trop en quoi ça consiste et pourquoi c’est tellement bien.
Inspired by the famous Nordic larp convention circuit, the GNiales is a Parisian event where larpers meet, share ideas and experiment on the hobby (GN is French for larp, GNiales is a pun with the “genius-like”meaning of «genial»).
