Valve (Awake) was a larp campaign played in three consecutive summers, comprising of altogether nine events in 2011-2013. The first year of Valve received support from the Alvar Aalto Foundation and Ropecon ry. The basic idea was to study whether immersion to a character would alter the way the players perceived their everyday surroundings. The main subtext for the campaign came from [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedro_Calder%C3%B3n_de_la_Barca Pedro Calderón de la Barca]'s play, [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_Is_a_Dream Life is a Dream] (1635). The campaign was designed to combine three separate storylines with each utilising their distinct but intertwined fantastic settings.
