Brosme 9.9 kg
One of the many reactions to the now semi-legendary Dogme 99 in Norway was this text. It is written by one of the founders of Trondheim's (and by default Norway's) larp-scene, Egil Moe. Egil first went larping in the english 'Labyrinthe' in 1982, 're-started' sometime around 1987, and became one of the four semi-deified organizers of Soria Moria in 1992. His text is published here as it was when he published it on Forum at laiv.org.
Even if Egil's text is a paraphrasing of the Dogme '99 and it has a 'light' almost humorous, and not a little ironic, tone, it still stands today as a simple expression of a style of larping and an attitude towards the medium that has prevailed in Trondheim ever since 1987 and to this very date.
Brosme 9,9 kg.
(Please excuse any strange formulations as a poor effort to translate this text from Norwegian, Egil.)
Beyond these simple rules i accept the Larp to be a tool of expressing and understanding a deeper view of my self so that I may come to see who and what I really am. On any Larp I promise that as both creator (arranger) and participant always to seek my true self and to become a better human being.
I promise to give praise to all that have contributed to such an experience, and to memorise it so that it for always will remind me of its purpose. "To give pleasant memories and warm feelings (nostalgia) for Larp as a way of expression".
I promise to behave the way i interpret my character, and to make sure that my co acctors understand that its my character i am expressing.
My first and foremost goal is to learn who I truly am.
I promise to be free of all expressions and characterisations that may sink the Larp into an expression of art.
The Brosme 9,9 kg wow.
I pledge to the The Brosme 9,9 kg wow because I wish all Larps to be educational and entertaining.
I want that every one should have the opportunity to be part of that creational process, and because i am convinced that we by using the source of inspiration in everyday life, it will increase the spread of Larp and make Larp more accessible for a larger group of people.
