Practical information

What is Grenselandet?

Grenselandet is an annual international chamber larp festival in Oslo. It features larps and and freeform roleplaying games of high quality from different countries.

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 will be at Slurpen, Lakkegata 79B. The larps will be held at the following locations, all of them in walking distance from Slurpen:

Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 must stay at home. We will provide a ticket for next year's festival for you if you have to cancel due to symptoms. During the event, participants need to observe the one metre distancing rule. We will provide antibac and wash tables regularly. 

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 from the top of our front page.

What should I wear?

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

Where do I sleep?

Unfortunately, we don't have the capacity to organize accomodation for people coming from outside Oslo. But generally, the larp community in Oslo tend to open up their apartments for larpers who come from abroad and need a place to stay. If you don't know anyone you can ask, just post on the wall of our Facebook-event.

Anker Hostel / Anker Hotel is a budget accomodation option located conveniently close to Grenselandet.

Will there be food or drinks available?

No, but you can bring your own.

There are several shops, restaurants and fast food joints nearby.

Will there be party?

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 could fit in our profile, being it your own or some other larp you have tried. This can be done by sending an email to us, 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.
