Starting a series of pots about my experience at Knutpunkt, focusing on the programmed activites.

>monday

I got 6 players in a black box and ran 2 separate runs of Passionfruit side by side. Completely different character sets and resolutions in each run. The different play styles (one more theatrical and extroverted, one more low key) between the two groups were interesting to see. It certainly worked running in this format, but was perhaps less intimate than normal.

I got to 'play' Artemis - not the spaceship simulator, but a tactical command system based on the one used by NATO of that name. It's a live google maps, with radios to call squads we can locate using their GPS tracker. It's designed to be used with actual mil-sim players, or as we did with game masters playing the soldiers on the other end of the radios. (or as a game organiser tool for controling crew / monsters in a big larp). Very interesting. They intend to make it available once it's a bit more polished.

Later on there was a 'torture' workshop run by Karin Edman; first a demo of how to play cinematic torture in modern larp, then a chance to test some of the techniques. Cinematic and very safe content, but with a strong atmosphere.

Food has been very good (apart from being vegan), with catering here at the centre being used as main base.

Nationality count feels very high already.

"being vegan"

If the food is good, and nutritious, does it matter what it contains? This feels like the normal veggie-bashing. If the food is crap, complain. If it doesnt fullfill the nutritional needs, complain. If it fullfills everything but your wish for a specific ingredient, don´t complain, or you´ll come off as a douche.

It's not one specific ingredient, meat is a common food group:

From a nutritional needs angle:
"Meat and fish are the best and most easily absorbed sources of protein and iron"
