Re:Boot

Pacing

People have asked what they’re supposed to fill their days with. What do people in the Collective do? Well, they do what most people do. They do chores, talk with friends, argue with enemies, fight, make love, play games, grieve, laugh, build, sleep and worship. Some work out, some put …

Work and routines

To stay alive and safe, everyone must pitch in. One of the gravest offenses in the collective is to be a freeloader, someone who doesn’t contribute in any meaningful way. There have been people who were exiled because they skirted responsibilities or were found entirely useless in the past. After …

Conflict and resolution

In a diverse group with so many different personalities, agendas and opinions, there will always be some level of conflict. How are these things handled by the people in the collective? In this update, we’ll talk about how things might have been in the past and hopefully give you some …

The way it was

Re:Boot is set in a former totalitarian dictatorship. None of us can understand how living in a place like this is like. Neither do we have the experience and knowledge of such a country’s culture, laws and regulations. We won’t describe every detail of how everything was in this fictitious …

Getting to location

The ticket includes transport on a participant bus that we will organize. It will leave from Stavanger and from Sandnes city centers and return with passengers on Saturday, after the larp is over. There is also public transport to and from the site. Here are some details that will help …

Costume and visuals

Don’t spend a lot of time thinking about how people in the State dressed. It’s not crucial and we don’t want to micro manage you. It’s your character, you may decide how they look within the guidelines we provide here. It’s only three years since the rise of the fungus …

Re:Boot and weapons

In the fiction of the larp, the need to defend against those who would take what you have has increased since the collapse. Some choose flight over fight, and some decide to make a stand. Weapons are powerful and increase the sense of security. However, you may not bring a …

About the characters

We have chosen to make pre-written characters for Re:Boot, but participants may add to it themselves. We encourage you to expand the character if you want, and you may also change things as long as you keep the core of the character intact. The characters generally consist of the following: …
