This year Knutepunkt has invited Martin Svahn and Jonas Nilsson from Frispel to write an official opening game for this anual Nordic larp conference. Everyone present will get the chance to play this game in groups of 10 during the first evening of Knutepunkt. The School Trip is a game about a class reunion where 10 people from the old class meets 15 year after their last year at school. They meet to catch up on what has happened since they saw each other last. But as expected they have all changed substantially from whom they were as kids. However, they share the memory of a traumatic event which happened during a school trip to London 15 years ago. And this past event caches up with them in unexpected ways on this fateful day of the reunion.
Even if you have not signed up for Knutepunkt, you can come as a day visitor. You have to register as a day visitor in advance and food will be included. If you come on Thursday you can play the School Trip. On Friday and Saturday there are other games, workshops and lectures for you to participate in.
The Writer's Collective Frispel is celebrating 10 years in 2009. They are freeform game creators from Mora, Sweden. Frispel writes games which are in the borderlands between traditional roleplaying games, art and improvisation theatre ? with a slight touch of madness.
