About the larp
A group of friends. They have been friends for ever, made it through puberty, started their own families, but remained friends. But then, one of them is soon to die. How do you let that friend go, and how will it affect the bond that the rest of you share?
An abstract game, with music and a landscape formed by strings, in which you will connect with others in a very different way. Touching and intense.
Content Warnings: death, close physical contact, no speaking.

|Movement style||Players should be able to easily move around, lie down and crawl|
|Characters||There are no actual characters; players play abstract entities, or similar|
|Narrative control||There is no story as such, it’s more like abstract activity|
|Transparency||Fully transparent – players will, or at least can, know absolutely everything in advance|
|Representation level||The fictional space is so abstract that its physical representation isn’t important|
|Play culture||The concept of rivalry or cooperation between players doesn’t really apply|
