Frequently asked questions
We’ll try to collect the most common questions we get asked here.
A larp in 2020, the year of corona/covid-19?
Like everyone else, we’re painfully aware of the effects the corona virus has had world wide, how serious the situation has been, still is and can be again. Rest assured, we’re not taking it lightly. However, with the current low transmission and the gradual opening of organized events in Norway, we feel confident that a larp such as Re:Boot is possible in November. We continue to monitor the safety guidelines from the government and the NIPH/FHI (Norwegian Insitute of Public Health), and will take necessary measures before and during the larp according to their guidelines and the government regulations.
What about international participants?
Since this is an English speaking larp, it’s open for participants from outside of Norway. However, these candidates must stay updated on the travel advice and necessary actions both in their own country and Norway regarding entry and quarantine.
As of July 15th 2020, the Norwegian government issued new regulations for entry into Norway from European countries. The advice is based on the transmission situation in each country. Travellers who are residents in countries in the EU/EEA/Schengen area with fewer than 20 confirmed cases per 100 000 inhabitants during the last two weeks are exempt from mandatory quarantine upon entering Norway. The situation may change rapidly. Here is a map of what countries/areas are exempt from quarantine from the NIPH website, as well as further details on the criteria and advice. This map will be updated at least every 14 days, likely more often.
I want to use personal protection equipment. Can I do that at this larp?
Absolutely. Diegetic use of personal protective equipment is supported in the fiction.
Handwash, sanitizer and masks. Will you provide what’s necessary?
We will have soap and water available. Sanitizer too. We encourage all players to bring a small bottle of personal sanitizer gel as well. We have not planned for supplying masks, but as mentioned, you can definitely have masks, bandanas, scarves and the like as part of your costume if you wish.
