Are you new to Larp?

Don’t despair! We have all been there, and here follows a few tips that might be helpful for the larp beginner.
Grenselandet mostly features "chamber larps". This is a genre of larps that typically lasts around four hours.

Chamber larps are often split in three parts:
  1. The workshops, where the group gets to know each other, and where you get to develop your character
  2. The actual play time
  3. The debrief, where you can get out of your role, and discuss the experience together
A few tips for a better experience:

*It's a good idea to wear comfortable, neutral, clothes. You should feel like you can move around freely.

*You don't need to bring anything. A bottle of water can be handy, but usually water is also available at the venue.

*Finally, and very importantly, remember that you can opt out of the larp at any moment if you need to!

What makes a good larp is different from one person to another. However, it can be useful to think about what kind of experience you are looking for, and what’s important to you:
Are you looking for a smaller or a bigger group of players? 
Something with a lot of talking or something nonverbal? 
A feel good game, a more dramatic one, a political one?

Last note: there will always be people at the venue that can answer questions about the larp or practicalities, don't hesitate to reach out to them!

We are thrilled that you are curious about larp, welcome to this wonderous world!
