Since I’ve been involved in the hobby – that’s three years now – LARP seems to have started to pop up more and more frequently in the media. Here’s a recording from Swedish National Televisin (SVT) featuring Blodsband Reloaded, the post-apocalyptic LARP that references Fallout and 80s action movies.
So… who wants to go next year then?

BBR is a post-apocalyptic larp in the spirit of Nordic Larp tradition. BBRs main divergence from Nordic Larp canon (if there is such a thing) is that it has no designed political or artistic agenda beyond “let’s all have a massive wasteland party”.
The setting is a heavily romanticized rock’n’roll post-apocalypse in a similar vein to the Fallout games and 80s action movies in general. Style over rational survival instinct and realism is key here. “Yeah, but does it look and feel cool?” is the question we should all be asking ourselves at every stage of the journey.
