Be bold. Consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.

What This Is

  • A concise database over game design tools, games, groups, movements, schools and conferences.

What This Isn't

  • A place to promote your coming project, business or person.

Who's Behind This

Nordic Larp Wiki is made by everyone and anyone who's makes the choice to contribute. No gods, no masters, just doers. It was started by Johannes Axner who also is the technical administrator of the site. It's run completely non-profit for the benefit of the Nordic larp scene.
