Post subject:  LARP "Nordic Equinox 2015", Estonia, 06.-09. August

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen, fellow gamers!

I would like to take the opportunity to advertise a (mostly) Estonian event here.

Nordic Equinox is a pseudo-medieval fantasy LARP, that is held annually, in the beginning of August. It lasts 4 days and 3 nights and this is the 10th anniversary of the event, so it is well established and very well organized. (Also we are trying extra hard, this year, to make it especially awesome for the jubilee.)

The participation is between 200-300 people. In addition to local Estonians and Russians, we always have gamers from Finland, from time to time Latvia and odd player or two from other countries. But so far we have not managed to get anyone from Lithuania to come. This is why I am writing here now - in the hopes of remedying that.

There will be a lot of good fights, good laughs, great roleplaying, some mystery and many fine people in the absolutely gorgeous location. The tickets are already on sale, registration and all details are available. The official site has every single bit of information translated to English so you will get EXACTLY the same details as Estonian players.

Languages used during game are Estonian, English and Russian. If you can speak any of those you will be perfectly fine. The game fee varies, depending on how early you get your ticket and is 10-15 eur without food or 20-30 eur with food. There is a group discount for groups of 5 or more.

All of this - and every other piece of information you could wish for, is available on the game's website. You can also check out our FB page: or the event page

Also if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. We would LOVE to have you, as a single player or a group.

On behalf of NE organizing team,
Yours truly,

Allan Bernard

From what I read in the site it's a completely combat based game, is that true?

Nothing to do for non-combat players? No social interactions?

Thank you for the interest.

True, combat is a major part of the game (especially in the first part of every day) but no, there is plenty of roleplaying as well especially during the evenings and night. There will be plot NPC's, quests and several in-game player camps with their own agendas and possibilities of all kinds of social interaction.

The scenario based combats are conducted during the first part of the day and some during afternoon. Evenings and nights are purely for other fun - but ALWAYS in-game, there is no down-time.

The game area is divided into zones, out-of-game zone (blue), warded zone (white), wild zone (red). If you are not taking part in a scenario, you can not be attacked without your permission in the warded zone. Wild zone is much more dangerous, you can be attacked at all times there by other players or NPC's. Scenarios themselves are not compulsory, you can take part in them but you don't have to.

As noted in the "I want to come" section, you should let us know if you wish to participate as a purely non-combatant char. We have ways of incorporating those players in the overall plot as well as the struggle between hosts. Needless to say a good character and character description are a must then.

The recruitment and (de)motivational campaigns are slowly starting. Large groups in both hosts are actively trying to increase their numbers and chances. They are usually very welcoming of foreign players and would gladly let you join them.

If you are thinking about coming but have no group (and would like one) or you are afraid that you don't know anyone or will be left to "sidelines" - that would be an easy and fun way to get right into thick of things. The larger clubs can provide all or most of the gear you will need as well - if you don't have any or don't want to drag it with you. (In case of groups like Vishna-Ghrim they actually insist that you use their gear if you join them - for aesthetic purposes.)

Two weeks remain until the end of pre-registration ticket sales for the event.

Currently bit over 150 tickets have been sold. Since ticket sales always speed up when the deadline comes closer, we are very confident that there will easily be more than 200 players on the event.

Internationally about 10 or so people from Latvia and as many or more from Finland are coming.

We would very much like to have someone from Lithuania as well. Nordic Equinox is the biggest larp in Estonia and definitely one of the bigger ones in Baltics. So if you have not been to Estonian larps before, this would not be a bad place to start. Our players are very welcoming of foreigners and would be thrilled to meet you, I'm sure.

If you are entertaining the idea of coming, please do contact us and let us know (no commitment we would just like to know that you are thinking about it). If you are hesitant - contact us as well. There might be solutions for any problems or issues you are worried about. You can even just drop us a PM in the forum if you like.

The event is over for this year and Darkness has won once more.

There where bit over 200 participants in 4 player camps in addition to the NPC's and organizers. We had 10 players from Latvia, 12 from Finland and a couple other foreigners (France, UK) as visitors.

The anniversary was a resounding success and everyone had loads of fun (both roleplayers and fighters). Although no-one from Lithuania managed to come we are still hopeful for next year. We want you to know that you will be expected and warmly welcome if you intend to join us.

If you want to keep in touch or just keep an eye on the event, feel free to join our public Facebook discussion group:

Players will be posting their photos, videos and feedback there. Also next years event details (ticket sale dates and the like) will be announced there.

Here are a few galleries from this year: ... quinox2015 ... 240&type=3 ... 488&type=1 ... /n-vBQPnf/ ... 975&type=3 ... AxdDNpZjZR
