The sign up to Solmukohta 2016 closes on 1st of February. After that we will finish sorting participants into cabins.

If you (or one of your wished cabin mates) have bought a whole cabin, you will be sorted to the same cabin. If there are any problems, we will contact you.

If you have chosen to be placed in a cabin class of your choice, we will do our best to sort you according to your wishes.

The rest of this update is mostly about about A Week in Finland.

A Week in Finland

The event approaches and AWiF's program starts crystallizing. You can read about it in more detail on our website, but here's a little sneak peek to some of the items:

Come and experience the first larp from White Wolf Publishing

End of the Line is a vampire larp designed from the ground up to utilize the best elements from Nordic Larp, to give you an intense personal experience. You will be cast as either one of the Kindred or a mortal and step into a World of Darkness that just might be the world we already live in.

Finnish Deep (Sub)mersion + Island Profile Spotting Workshop

(Sauna party)

The one-day course will include subtopics like "Swim towards the light" and "Island Profile Recognition", wherein we learn the importance of shortest path first routing. Both courses feature darktime environments and use, for example, cutout shapes of deserted islands in the Finnish-Swedish archipelago.

Before and after the workshop, we will enjoy the well known Finnish sauna party environment.

Sign up for AWiF host and accommodation

We aim to offer accommodation to AWiF participants on Finnish larpers' couches. This form of Nordic Larp couch surfing has created new friendships in the past - and shown the city of the Week in new light for the participants. You can sign up as a host or for place to stay by following the links below.
