A Swedish Prologue

Prolog - A Swedish Larp Convention
This weekend, 300 hundred larpers take off to one of the key nodal points of Swedish larp, the city of Västerås.

Västerås is known for both the 1000 player fantasy games of Eleria (previously organized by Enhörningen), edu-larping company LajvVerkstaden and a history of larping stretching back to the late 80’s.

Now, in the first weekend of April, the all-larp-convention Prolog (Prologue) takes place in Västerås for the third year with a three days packed with live-roleplaying. Participants are mainly Swedes but are also coming from Norway, Denmark and Finland.

Prolog is an annual larp convention that aims to connect Swedish larpers from all different styles and cultures. Through meeting new people, attending great workshops and of course by playing all kinds of larps, attendees will be exchanging experiences and cross-polinate.

We aim to go as deep as possible in every aspect of larping, from classic fantasy to jeep-form avantgardism. To do this we create a program ranging from workshops in reenactment handicraft to creating and playing small yet intriguing free-from roleplaying scenarios. Our goal is to unify the Swedish larp society and to create a big sandbox for trying new things and evolving the whole movement.
