Forum is a Danish congress for role-players. Its focus was originally on larp rather than pen and paper RPG, but over the years it has become a venue for both.

Forum usually lasts 3 days, spanning from Friday to Sunday. Its programme consists primarily of talks, debates, and a very extravagant auction, but since 2012 it has also been the venue of a scenario competition for short story scenarios called Project Særimner.

History

The first Forum was held in 2000. It was organised by Morten Gade, Jesper Bruun, Jesper Donnis, and Mikkel Sander. At the time it was intended as a “Knutepunkt light”, but with a national scope rather than an international one. The convention was organised as a private venture. Not until later did it become financed by the national Danish organisation, Bifrost.
