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 in slots schedules at:
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 larp venues are all over the city center. To play a larp, you will meet at Riksscenen (Hausmanns gate 34) 15 minutes before the larp starts, and walk from there. Someone will guide you.

On Friday the social hangout place will be at Deichman Grünerløkka. It will open at 16:00.You are welcome to bring your own food to the hangout zone.

On Saturday evening, there will be a party at 3rd place (Welhavens Gate 1B). You can bring your own food and drink to the venue.


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?

You are free to bring your own food to Deichman and food and (alcoholic) drinks to 3rd place. There are several shops, restaurants and fast food joints nearby.

Will there be a party?

Yes! The party is on Saturday evening at 3rd Place (Welhavens Gate 1B). The theme is Elemental.

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).
