A '''Nordic larp''' is a larp that is influenced by the Nordic Larp tradition and contributes to the ongoing Nordic Larp Discourse.
'''Or as ==Defintion== ===Short definition===For a brand statement [[Nordic Larp Talk]] in 48 words by [[2013]] researcher and co-author of the book [[Nordic Larp Book|Nordic Larp]], [[Jaakko Stenros]]wrote a defintion with help from [[Markus Montola]] and [[Bjarke Pedersen]]. <blockquote>''A larp that is influenced by the Nordic Larp tradition or contributes to the ongoing Nordic larp discourse."</blockquote> For some this might seem to loose. As Jaakko puts it: <blockquote>'''This definition may seem disappointing, or even like a cop out. It does not arm you with analytical tools that you could use, disconnected from larp practice, to identify a Nordic Larp. But Nordic Larp is not a set of instructions. It is not even a coherent design philosophy, though that is a fairly common claim online. It is a movement."</blockquote>  ===Brand statement===To perceive Nordic Larp as brand. Jaakko tried to confine it to a 48 word brand statement.
<blockquote>''A tradition that views larp as a valid form of expression, worthy of debate, analysis and continuous experimentation, 
which emerged around the Knutepunkt convention. It typically values thematic coherence, continuous illusion, action and immersion, while keeping the larp co-creative and its production uncommercial. Workshops and debriefs are common."</blockquote>
