Accommodations

Sleep

You will sleep in beds in rooms at Follökna Mansion. You will be sorted into rooms depending what character you play. Most rooms are for two or three and you will probably share room with your character’s family. Actual sleeping will be off-game, but you will need your rooms as a play area for your in-game family during the larp. We will gather information from you about your off-game sleeping preferences before making the sorting.

We will serve you meals starting with dinner the first evening to breakfast the third day. Food will be made by our great voluntary kitchen staff. We will gather information about your dietary before the larp. All off game food will be vegetarian.
