The Sign-Up

The sign-up window is now over but you can sign-up for the waiting list!

Waiting list sign up for regular player

Waiting list sign up for the Unseen

Sign-up opens at 19:00 CET on December 30, 2023. Once it opens, anyone who signs up within the first 14 days will have an equal chance to get a spot at the larp. In other words, there is no need to rush!

In the sign-up process, we will ask for general info such as your name, country, date of birth and your contact details, as well as more detailed info about what sort of experience you want to have at the larp. In this second part, we will ask you about things like the preferred gender for your character and what your content preferences are. The content will be grouped and you can tell us on a scale from 1-5 what part you wish particular content to play in your specific story.

We will work hard to make sure that every player gets the experience they want at the larp, but we can only work from the information that you provide us with. We will not take into account any off-game player characteristics such as for example gender, nationality, larp experience, body type, or similar when assigning spots or casting.


97 Poets of Revachol is a larp that contains heavy themes, and we will play close emotional connections in confined spaces. Since we wish to do everything in our power to make this experience as safe as possible, the sign-up process will have a part where signed-up players can flag other players.

The flagging process will make use of a Yellow and Red flag system. After the 14 day signup interval is over, everyone that signed up will be contacted and asked if they wish to flag any other player. The system is as follows:

  • Yellow Flag: “I do not wish to play closely with this person”
  • Red Flag: “I believe that this person poses a risk to other players and that they should not be allowed to attend the larp.”

If you Yellow flag another player, we will make sure that you won’t play closely with that player and try to place you in different runs if possible. If you Red flag another player, we will contact you for more information, and will handle the situation based on the information available to us.

The only people who will have access to the flagging data are the members of our Safety Team.

The Lottery

After the flagging process, we will start assigning spots to the larp. If there are more signups than there are spots, we will conduct a lottery. The general rule is that everybody who signs up in the first interval has an equal chance at securing a spot.

If there is a big imbalance in preferred character gender (e.g. 60%+ of players wishing to play the same gender), we will adjust the lottery group to make sure that there is a more equal distribution. Anyone not getting a spot will be added to our waiting list, as will anyone who signs up after the initial 14-day period.

The Unseen

As usual, the Unseen characters will be handled a little bit differently. First of all, they have a separate sign-up process. The process is similar to the one for the standard characters, but since these characters are experimental and will have a greater responsibility to create play for others, an Unseen ticket comes with a 50% discount. You can sign up for both standard and Unseen characters, but you will have to fill out two separate forms. If you get a spot in both lotteries, you can simply choose which one you want, and the spot that you didn’t choose will go to someone on the waiting list. A blog on the Unseen and their game can be read here.

What to do if you get a spot at the larp

If you get offered a spot at the larp, you will have to sign into our system to confirm it within two weeks. If you do not do this, your spot will be offered to a player on the waiting list.

The casting process will start sometime after the spots are assigned, and we will strive to assign a character to everyone before the payment deadline.

Cancellation terms

After you get a spot, you will get a payment deadline (about a month after signing up). The fee must be paid by the last day of the deadline. Any spots that are unpaid after the payment deadline will be cancelled and advertised to the waiting list players.

After the payment deadline, the cancellation fee is 10% of the ticket price. A month before the game or less, the cancellation fee rises to 50% of the ticket price. Two weeks before the game or less, the cancellation fee is 100% of the ticket price. If a paying replacement player is found for the cancelled spot, an amount higher than noted above can be returned - but only up to 90% of the ticket price; the 10% fee is always non-refundable. If the cancellation fee is 50%, you get any part of the replacement player’s payment that is above 50% of your original ticket price (only up to 90% of the paid ticket price). If the cancellation fee is 100%, you get the whole amount of the replacement player’s payment (only up to 90% of the paid ticket price).

Join the crew

We are a volunteer-based team trying to make a dream come alive. Do you want to help? That’s great to hear! We are always looking for people to:

  • Help out with the administration and comms.
  • Help with cleaning and repairing the venue. We will be organising work weekends there from March 2024 to September 2024. The dates will be released during the fall of 2023.
  • Create in-game posters, magazines, postcards, letters, music, and other supplementary media.
  • Make props or help our scenography team in transforming the venue into a piece of Revachol.

Do you have another great idea on how you can help? Awesome!

Please, fill out this questionnaire and we will contact you within a month.
