Costumes

The larp is set in a “vintage steampunk” era. That means that both human and Daemon will be dressed in costumes from an ahistorical past that fits the description “vintage steampunk”.

This can entail fashion from the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th century. Feel free to mix and match any clothes, styles, and accessories from these decades for your outfit. This is all about creating the right look and feel that suits your character, rather than recreating any particular era. Think for instance dark academia, light academia, or history bounding.

As far as the steampunk part of the larp is concerned, this applies mainly to the sciences, tech, and gadgets.  

You can get inspiration from the pinterest board that Anna Katrine Bønnelycke and Kathrine Dahl have kindly put together. Be advised that it in no way has to as advanced as this. 

The Daemon player will additionally wear make-up and costume parts so it’s clear what animal they are representing, but no full animal-makeup or costume is relevant or wanted in this larp. Body language and representation are the most important. The representation can be done with prostheses, make-up, wigs, costume parts like fur, feathers, tails and the like. Avoid any full suits or masks.  

 

Practicalities ingame

  • It is meant quite literally that you can’t move physically far away from your counterpart in the larp, so if you need to go to the bathroom, they need to be right outside the door. If you need an offgame break, they will have to go with you. This means that you really should sign up with someone with whom you are comfortable and have calibrated expectations for the experience. There will be no exceptions during the larp.
  • No serious injury or death will occur to any player characters unless the player and their partner choose to in the end of the larp

Practicalities offgame

  • All communication and talking during the larp will be in English. 
  • The Human and Daemon player in a couple are expected to sign up together and will receive the same character sheet as their knowledge and experience is completely transparent – sharing each other’s thoughts has its perks!
  • We would really like to take the opportunity to take pictures for the larp’s web page at this event. So if anyone would like to participate in this, please let us know in the sign-up. You will get personalized shots and everybody gets the option to get out of game posing photos as well. 
  • It can be very straining to find a partner. We recommend that you do this yourself, since it requires a lot of trust. You CAN sign up as a single person but the organization can’t promise to help you find a partner. A post will be made on the interest group where you can say that you would like a partner, if this feels alright for you. 

Location and travel

The location is a castle with two person bedrooms and several common spaces, 1 ½ hours travel time from Copenhagen. 

Address: 
Broholm Slot 
Broholmsvej 32
5884 Gudme
Denmark

If you are not travelling by car, you can take a train to Nyborg st. where the train runs directly from Copenhagen and we can arrange a pick-up from there.  

This means that if you are flying, the most viable option is to fly to Copenhagen Airport and then take the intercity train to Nyborg st. 

Unfortunately, the location isn’t wheelchair friendly since their are staircases and most rooms are on the second floor. 
If you have any specific inquiries about accesibility, please reach out to the team so see if we can accomodate your needs. 

All communication will be in English both written before the larp as well as ingame and offgame. 

The hotel serves local Danish gourmet food. There will be light snacks in the afternoon of day 1 (make sure you eat lunch from home!). Then you will get served a three course dinner with option of a wine menu on day 1, three meals on day 2 (including a two course dinner in the evening) and brunch on day 3. We will aim to take your dietary requirements into account. 

The food will be as setting appropriate as possible. 

There will be non-aloholic drinks served. Alcohol will be available in small amounts during the game and then you can bring your own for during and after the game. We expect you to not be drunk at any time during the larp. A little alcohol is alright, but being drunk will not be accepted. 

You will stay in two person rooms. Most rooms will have double beds so you have to be comfortable with sleeping in the same bed as your partner. The rooms are ingame during the day, but you can put a black satin band on it if you don’t want anyone to come in while you are taking a break and a white satin band if you specifically want to be interrupted. We will sleep offgame at this event. All bed linen and towels are provided. 

There are hot showers at the location and plenty of toilets. Most have private bathrooms in their own room but for four of the suite style rooms, the bathrooms are on the hall. 

Until the 1st of March 2022, you can get a full refund. If one of the pair has to sign off, the whole couple will have to unless another partner that is not flagged by the other players can be found for the remaining player. 

After this time, the organizers will try to fill up with new people if you have to sign off, and you will get a refund when it gets filled. You can not sell your own ticket. 

Thank you!

A lot of people have helped to make this larp happen. All the players and helpers at the playtests in the summer of 2021 have made the larp into what it is today. It couldn’t have been done without them.
