==Nordiclarp.org Definition==
This is the definition used by the [[Nordiclarp.org]] websites. It's less of an academic definition and more meant as a statement to gather the scene around it in an inclusive manner. There is a longer explanation of the term at the source link.
<blockquote>{{Quote|text=Nordic-style larp is traditionally different from a term for shared larp traditions in other parts of the world – here are a few examples of aims Norway, Sweden, Denmark and ideals that are typical for this unique gaming scene:<br><br>'''[[Immersion]]'''Finland. What sets the Nordic larpers want to feel like they are “really there”. This includes creating larp traditions apart from others is a truly convincing illusion of physically being in a medieval village/strong emphasis on a space ship/WWII bunkercollaboration and collective creation, playing a character that is very close to your own physical appearanceunobtrusive rules, as well as focusing on getting under the character’s skin to “feel their feelings”. Dreaming in character at night is seen by some nordic larpers as a sign rich variety of an appropriate level of immersionplay styles and settings sometimes including heavy themes.<br><br>'''Collaboration'''|source={{URL|nordiclarp. Nordicorg/what-is-nordic-style larp is about creating an exciting and emotionally affecting story together, not measuring your strength. There is no winning, and many players intentionally let their characters fail in their objectives to create more interesting stories.<br><br>'''Artistic vision'''. Many Nordic games are intended as more than entertainment – they make artistic or even political statements. The goal in these games is to affect the players long term, to perhaps change the way they see themselves or how they act in society.</blockquote>}}}}
