Knutpunkt (2014)


Knutepunkt is an annual conference on nordic style larp which has been running since the first event in Norway in 1997. It cycles through each of the nordic countries as hosts; in Sweden it's called Knutpunkt, in Denmark Knudepunkt and in Finland Solmukohta. In English the translation would be meeting point or nodal point.
