Application for Dragon Legion's Iceland Player Event 2020



Application Info


Event Description

Dragon Legion is running a role-playing event set in Icelandic Mythology (pen and paper, not LARP). For one week we will be playing together in several small groups that all play an important role in the same adventure. We will be staying in a community center in beautiful southern Iceland and we will let the Icelandic landscape inspire us. We will use the RUNESTONES system, an easy role-playing system developed by Dragon Legion.


Event Date

The event will take place from:

March 28th - April 4th 2020

(Please remember to reserve a travel day before and after the event, keep those days free!)


Event Location

We will be staying in southern Iceland in a community center about 10 min east of Hvolsvöllur. It is very close to Seljalandsfoss, one of Iceland's most spectacular waterfalls. Participants should bring sleeping bags! More information about the accommodation will be published here soon.


Do I need to have any role-playing experience?

You don't need any role-playing experience at all. We will be playing the Dragon Legion's own Runestone system which is really easy to learn and we will give you an introduction.


Who can apply?

We have an age limit of 30 years (you cannot be older than 30) and we can only accept participants from the countries listed below.

Currently slots are still available for:

Czech Republic

Denmark

Estonia

Finland

Germany

Iceland

Italy

Poland

All applications will be reviewed and evaluated by the coordination team. The best applications will be chosen and both the accepted and rejected applicants will be notified. The application will be open until all slots have been filled, so applying sooner gives you an advantage.


What about accommodation and food?

We are going to stay in a community center and sleep on air mattresses near the town of Hvolsvöllur. You will find more information and links here soon. The groups will be in charge of cooking their own meals.


What about sightseeing and resting?

During the event you will get a day off. We are hoping that you will take this opportunity to connect with participants from other countries and visit some of the attractive locations nearby. We will help you find something that interests you. You can also use this day to get some rest, if that is what you need.


Included in the event are:

  • Flights from your home country and an airport in your area (might not be the closest one since we need to take cheap flights for everyone to stay within the budget)
  • Accommodation in Iceland
  • Food and drinks
  • Entry fees for places we visit together
  • Travels within Iceland

Event Fee:

  • 40 Euros for Dragon Legion Members
  • 50 Euros for non-members

Funding

The event is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union that supports intercultural exchange of young people. This allows us to cover most parts of the travel costs and accommodation costs for the participants.


Why does the event have a fee if it gets funding?

We have a very tight budget and we would love to pay for everyone but we simply can’t. With the fees of 40 € / 50 € we can pay for the budget overrun so that we don’t end up paying extra for the event. We think this is a good price for a week of role-playing experience, including food, accommodation and travel.

If you cannot afford the fee but still want to participate please give a statement about it in your application. We know there are bad situations in some countries right now and we want to make sure that everyone has the chance to be part of this event, so we decided to have 1-2 slots for free for those who really need them. Please don’t abuse this.

We cover the travel costs for the flight, the travel from the airport to our location, lodging, food and drinks and any group activities. You just need to take care of your travel to the airport in your home country.


Who is organizing the event?

The people behind this event are active members of the Dragon Legion, young people who are interested in cultural exchange, creating innovative events, and role-playing games. We are all volunteers who organize this in our free time.


Will there be more events of this type?

We certainly hope so. We already held several one-week events, such as an event in Iceland in 2014, in Greece in 2015 and 2016, and in Sweden in 2016 and in England 2018. We are currently working on different plans. If you are from a country that is not eligible at the moment you could get in touch with us and help us open up the next event for your country as well.
