FRIDAY FEATURE #25

Last or second to last Friday Feature is out! The larp is really close now…

We have been updating the descriptions on what some of the specific groups will work with. There are still a few missing, but they are written and are just going through proofing and will be made available within the day.

To read the updates, check out:

I know it’s a lot to ask, but Command players would benefit from reading through all the descriptions of the groups to get a grip on what tasks they will actually be performing at the larp.

In case you missed it, there is also a document on Radio Procedure. SURFOPS and MISCON should read it and learn it (there will be cheat sheets ingame), Command might also benefit from studying it. https://lotka-volterra.se/radio-procedure

Finally, remember to breathe. Don’t panic. The larp won’t break just because you forgot something you read. It’s gonna be allright.

Priorities

Participant tshirt motive, by Tia Carolina Ihalainen

As the larp is now very near, there are few things we want you to prioritize. We sent an email about these things a few days ago (if you haven’t received it – get in touch), but here are some of the most important and time critical things you need to do as a participant:

  • Sunday March 25th – this is the last date for you to book bus rides from Stockholm Central or Arlanda Airport to the venue. It is also the last date for you to sign up for a participant t-shirt. You will find the shop (where you can also order sleeping mats) by logging in to https://lotka-volterra.se and clicking “Shop” in the menu.
  • The most important things about your character right now are filling out the field called “Personnel file”, “Traumas” and “People you know in Haven”. These things will be used in-game, to generate play for Intelligence, Counselors, INTSEC and Command, and will also be used by Game Masters to send messages and news, video link chats etc. Log in and edit your character if you haven’t already done so.
  • We need to plan parking as parking space is scarce close to the bunker. We therefore ask drivers to fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1aTSAzEK1ld6grOR8Xqh6pOuyaFhdjbSYKZPEX08dhQM/edit
  • And a final reminder of some non-obvious stuff you either should bring to the larp, or that we will be very glad if you do:
    • Some piece of memorabilia to put on The Wall: a photo of a family member or lost love, or some trinket from before Nightfall to remind you of all the things lost then.
    • An (english language) book, comic or magazine to put into the communal library.
    • Ear plugs. People will snore.
    • A watch, if you have it.
    • Cash (SEK or EUR) for the after party, where we will be serving alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages for a self service cost.
    • Something to eat before the larp starts

More heroes

Let’s give up for a couple of more heroes working on this project:

Andreas Piechal

Who are you?
I haven’t done much before, larp-wise. But I make spectacular embroidered byzantine clothing and like to build tesla coils.

Describe what you’re doing for LV.
Science props and some helping with the logistics (Andreas is much too humble, he’s really been pulling a heavy workload all over the place).

Why are you a part of LV?
Got dragged into it 😀

Niels Jonsson

Who are you?
LARP enthusiast and producer of the Swedish LARP Projekt Lazarus while studying a bachelor in mechatronics.

Describe what you’re doing for LV.
Shining some light on those scary situations… (Meaning Niels is building some techy props for us)

Why are you a part of LV?
When I read about LV it sounded really awesome and right of the bat I got several ideas of props and cool tech stuff. They are setting a really high industry standard, something I really can support!

What makes you tick?
Curiosity, science, friends and hobbies

Elina Andersson

Who are you?
I’m part of the organization Ariadne’s Red Thread, I have been organizer and scenography boss of the larp “The Solution”. I have helped out with scenography/props for “When Androids Dream” and I’m currently working on scenography for “Fight Like a Girl”. I also like carrying heavy stuff.

Describe what you’re doing for LV.
For this amazing project I am helping out with scenography and will also get the chance to play the larp as a participant.

Why are you a part of LV?
Lotka-Volterra has an amazing and “do”-oriented setting, where the challenge of scenography isn’t just making it look good, but also for almost everything to have a function or use. That’s a very interesting challenge and I’m happy to be a part of the team that takes on the task!

What makes you tick?
Creating scenography that enhances the vision for the larp and the game design.

Kenny Svensson

Who are you?
I live in Karlskoga, Sweden and I work as a Correctional Officer and I’m treasurer for the role-playing group Svarta Galten. This is my second time doing prop work for a larp production. I have previously helped organize the post apocalyptic larp Vinterland in 2017 and have been participating in larps since 2013.

Describe what you’re doing for LV.
I’m working in the props department and are mainly focused on designing and making the helmets for SURFOPS, LSUP, INTSEC and Maintenance.

Why are you a part of LV?
I have always loved the science fiction genre and when I was asked to do some prop work for this larp I had to say yes!

What makes you tick?
Gritty, low key Science fiction, Cyberpunk and the design styles of the 1980s

Peter Edgar

Who are you?
Kinda artist that rocks doodles. Have done game mastering for larps like Fortune and Felicity and “shadow” play for games like Lindängen and Monitor Celestra.

Describe what you’re doing for LV.
Art, concept stuff, posters and gear.

Why are you a part of LV?
Its a team i have been wanting to work with for a long time, and a project that will rock the aesthetic. And I’m a sucker for aesthetics.

What makes you tick?
Visual perfection that helps build the mood, setting and that makes the larpers feel like they are in a majestic movie experience.

Anna Sortti

Who are you?
I’m a crafty prop maker with nearly 20 years in the larp hobby. Got hooked on the post apocalypse genre thanks to the larp Ingenmansland (No mans land) back in 2008. I’ve been involved in a bunch of larp productions since then, like Tunguska, Skymningsland, Landsväg and Sommarland.

Describe what you’re doing for LV.
I’m part of the set dressing team, trying to make a barren bunker look and feel like a home away from home.

Why are you a part of LV?
Olle and Sebastian (and a bunch of other lovely people) made me fall in love with postap larping ten years ago. Of course I wouldn’t want to miss out on shaping and living this post apocalyptic dream of LV?
