Laivfabrikken Oslo - the "Larp Factory in Oslo" - is an Oslo-based network of larp organizers who aim to produce at least one larp each month, every month. The larps last less than a day, hold high quality, and have a low threshold for participation. Laivfabrikken is coordinated by a group called "limet" - "the glue". The members of this group changes from semester to semester, and the group consists of organizers and larpers in general who wishes to contribute in the "do-ocracy". Every semester there's a pitching forum, where organizers pitch their upcoming larps, and collectively decide which larps go on the calendar.


After years of loose talk and occasional planning, Laivfabrikken was formally founded in May 2009, and had by the end of the first season held 10 larps, most designed by local larpwrights, and some imported scenarios such as J. Tuomas Harviainen's "Prayers on a Porcelain Altar" and Jeepen's "The Upgrade". Inspired by the Fønix project in Bergen, with a similar emphasis on short low-threshold/high-quality larps, and motivated by a desire to reach out to new players and to provide larp experiences to older players who no longer had the time to participate in the 2-5-days long high-preparation larps common in Norway. Since its creation, Laivfabrikken Oslo has inspired the creation of several other larp factories.
