Dragon Legion is running a role-playing event embedded in Nordsken, the biggest gaming convention in Northern Sweden. In this event we will focus on creating adventures, learning how to make adventures more exciting and running role-playing sessions for attendees of the convention. We also plan on offering other special Dragon Legion activities, such as "Go, Goblins, Go!" and maybe a Steinarr concert.
The event will take place from:
May 16th - 23rd 2020
(Please remember that depending on your location you might need one or even two additional travel days before and after the event, so keep those days free!)
We will be staying at a camp located about 15-30 minutes (by car) outside of Skellefteå where the main convention will take place. People will live together in groups in cabins.
Do I need to have any role-playing experience?
We expect you to be able to run a game as a game director. If you are an experienced role-player we will ask you to be flexible enough to step away from your "normal" game routine and try something different with us. We believe that the creative sessions will be fun and that the workshop will offer enough input to inspire new gamers and experienced gamers alike.
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: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Poland, Romania, Sweden
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.
What about accommodation and food?
We are going to stay in cabins in a small town in northern Sweden. 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 country 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 Sweden
- Food and drinks
- Entry fees for places we visit together, including ticket to Nordsken
- Travels within Sweden
- 40 Euros for Dragon Legion Members
- 50 Euros for non-members
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 has 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.
