The event will take place from: September 22nd – September 28th 2023 (Please remember to reserve a travel day before and after the event, keep those days free!)
We will be staying at a campsite close to Rome. We will sleep in small houses in small groups of 5.
Topic of the Event
We aim to create a story set in the days of ancient Rome. Our intentions are to go in the direction of political intrigue, which is why we chose Rome as our location, the heart of one of the greatest empires of the ancient world.
Do I need to have any role-playing experience?
Experience with Game Directing is not needed, but would probably help you to understand our event a lot faster.
Who can apply?
You should be at least 18 years old. We can only accept participants from the countries listed below:
Currently slots are still available for: Denmark, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, 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 will be staying at small houses which also contain a small kitchen. We will be within easy reach of the city of Rome by public transport.
What about sightseeing and resting?
During the event we will spend some time outside, visiting locations that can give us the best impressions of the ancient empire which the Romans built. We expect you to turn up in time for the workshop sessions but there will be plenty of time to relax and sleep (however, you are responsible for getting enough sleep!).
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 Italy
- Food and drinks
- Entry fees for places we visit together
- Travels within Italy
- 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 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.
