Frequently asked questions
We’ll try to collect the most common questions we get asked here.
A larp in 2020/2021, the time of 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 gradual opening of organized events in Norway, we feel confident that a larp such as Re:Boot is possible in April. We continue to monitor the safety guidelines from the government and the NIPH (Norwegian Institute of Public Health/FHI), 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 English speakers, but we will not accept participants from outside of Norway for the April 2021 run. This is because of the rather large chance that there will be mandatory quarantine coming in and out of Norway, or possibly closed borders. At this time, it’s too much of a heart ache and logistical night mare to place your bets on the possibility.
Will there be another run of Re:Boot?
We are aiming for several more runs, though we cannot say for sure until after the first run is over. Possible runs after the first will be open to international players, although we cannot at this time say what rules and requirements will be in place to enter Norway. The situation may change rapidly, as it did throughout 2020. Here is a map of what countries/areas are exempt from quarantine from the NIPH website, as well as further details on the current criteria and advice. This map is updated regularly.
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.
