Solmukohta is the main venue of cooperation between Nordic Progressive roleplaying gamers. The lectures, discussions, panels and workshops are a goldmine for creating new ideas about gaming and game organizing.

The event is not, however, only about the talks and seminars. It is also about meeting interesting people and sharing your ideas and views with them – it is about having fun and finding inspiration. The event is full of parties and informal meetings for fun and pleasure. A Week in Finland, during the week before the event, gives participants a chance to get to know the Finnish roleplaying scene and the city of Helsinki, guided gently by Finnish Nordic Progressive Larpers.

The name Solmukohta is Finnish and means “a meeting point”. In Norway the event is called Knutepunkt, in Sweden Knutpunkt and in Denmark Knudepunkt. This meeting point – melting pot for ideas and inspiration – was first organized in 1997. It has been playing a vital role in establishing the Nordic Progressive roleplaying identity and in establishing the concept of "Nordic Progressive larp" as an unique approach to live action roleplaying.

Although the core of Solmukohta is, no doubt, Nordic Progressive Larp, the scene is in no way restricted to solely the Nordic Progressive countries. Solmukohta has participants from all over the world whose passion, in one way or another, is Nordic Progressive Larp.

Game designers, larpers, enthusiasts, researchers, newcomers and old beards are all welcome to the inspirational melting pot of the Nordic Progressive Larp scene. Welcome to Solmukohta, let the fun begin!
