Now that we have Pervasive Games out, we — me and Jaakko — posted the call for proposals for our next book, Nordic Larp (working title). It will be a less academic book, documenting Nordic larps in texts and pictures. Cool stuff will be included, ranging from massive, perfectly detailed fantasy village games (Dragonbane) to tiny artsy pervasive larps created by the players just for themselves (The White Road).
While our main audience will consist of Nordic role-players, we hope that some researchers, art people, game designers et cetera will find the book interesting as well. In a distant dream it would be the larp version of Allan Kaprow’s 1966 Assemblage, Environments, and Happenings…
Well; it won’t be in form, but perhaps in function.
