Practical information

What is Grenselandet?

Grenselandet is an annual international chamber larp festival in Oslo. It features larps and freeform roleplaying games of high quality from different countries. The larps are (with the very occasional exception) run in English. English is the working language for all info before and during the festival.

All the larps in our programme fullfill the following criteria:
  • No preparations required except pre-larp workshop
  • Duration no longer than four hours
  • Preferably playtested, but we can make exceptions
  • Run by the author(s) themselves

When is Grenselandet?

The larps will take place at the following hours:
Friday: 17:00-21:00
Saturday: 11:00-15:00
Saturday: 17:00-21:00

This means you can play up to three larps at Grenselandet.

Where is Grenselandet?

The hangout and HQ of Grenselandet 2022 will be at Hausmania, Hausmanns gate 34. But the larps will be held at different locations like Rikscenen, Studio Texnes, Deichman Grünerløkka etc. To play the larps you will always meet up at the HQ and move as a group from there to the venue.

All venues are less than 10 minutes walking distance from the HQ.

The hangout zone will open Friday at 16:00 and stay open throughout Grenselandet. 

You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks to the hangout zone.

Which languages will we use for playing?

All larps will be run in English unless otherwise specified.

What does it cost?

Please visit our ticket sales page, linked at the top of our front page.

What should I wear?

Wear neutral clothes, preferably black, for all larps. No costume is required.

Where do I sleep?

Anker hotel and hostel is located nearby and is usually one of the more affordable paid options.

Will there be food or drinks available?

There is a bar at Hausmania (8pm-03am) where you can purchase alcoholic and soft drinks. You are not allowed to bring your own drinks inside, even outside of the bar's opening hours. 

But you can bring your own food. There are several shops, restaurants and fast food joints nearby.

Will there be a party?

Yes! The party is on Saturday evening at Hausmania. The theme is Masquerade Ball. The color scheme is black, white and metallic. Additionally the hangout space is open before and after the programme ends both Friday and Saturday.

Can I run my larp at Grenselandet?

You are welcome to suggest larps you think fit in our profile, whether your own or some other larp you have tried. This can be done by sending us an email, see the bottom of this page

Do you need volunteers?

Yes, we need some hands for cooking in the hangout zone and for assisting on the practical side on running games. If you volunteer in one time slot you can still play two larps. Volunteers will get free food and lots of cred. Send us an email if you're interested (see bottom of this page).

Who organizes Grenselandet?

Grenselandet is organized by a project group in Fantasiforbundet in cooperation with Laivfabrikken Oslo. The main organizers are Martin Nielsen and Nora Berg-Eriksen.
