Laivfabrikken Oslo (The Larp Factory)
The Larp Factory is a network of larp organizers based in Oslo, Norway. They aim to run at least one high-quality one-shot larp each month. The organization has produced spin-offs in other parts of Europe.
They produced an excellent book “Larps from the Larp Factory.”
Knutepunkt (“meeting point”) is an annual conference for Nordic larp as well as other forms of role-playing. It cycles through each of the Nordic countries and gets a slightly different name each year. (Knutepunkt in Norway, Knudepunkt in Denmark, Knutpunkt in Sweden, and Solmukohta in Finland) There is an emphasis on theory relative to the other Nordic conventions. In many ways it is the center of Nordic larp culture.
Fastaval is an annual role-playing and larp convention in Denmark. “Fastaval-style” one-shot larps are a big influence on the sorts of games Larp House likes to run.
Intercon LARP conventions are a series of conventions having their origins in the “theater-style LARP” communities at Harvard and MIT.
