Application for Midgard Convention – Roleplaying in Iceland 2019 (Iceland)

Application Info

Event Description

Dragon Legion is running a role-playing event embedded in Midgard, Iceland's first all inclusive convention. In this event we will focus on creating adventures, learning how to make adventures more exciting and running role-playing sessions for attendees of the convention. The event will be held in Iceland from September 7th to September 15th 2019.

Do I need to have any role-playing experience?

You don’t need any experience. All you need is the right attitude and the willingness to try something new. If you are an experienced role-player we will ask you to be flexible enough to step away from your "normal" game routine and try something different with us. We do however want you to be creative and we want you to suggest a cool story for an adventure.

Who can apply?

Currently we can only accept participants from the following countries:

Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Poland, UK, Sweden.

We also have an age limit of 30 years which means that you can only apply if you are 30 years or younger.

All applications will be reviewed and evaluated by the coordination team. The best applications will be chosen and the participants will be notified. Unlike in previous events we don't have a deadline for the application this year. We will select participants that are good early on until all slots are filled. This means your chances are high if you write a good application and if you submit it early.

Date of the event

The event will take place from:

September 7th - September 15th 2019

(The 6th and the 16th are travel days.)

(Please remember that depending on your location you might need one or even two additional travel days before and after the event, so keep those days free!)

What about accommodation and food?

Accommodation and food will be provided. We are staying in a house in which we will cook our own food, so we will rely on everyone helping. We don't have details about the accommodation yet.

What about sightseeing and resting?

As part of the event we will explore some interesting places in Iceland in order to find inspiration. We will also have a day off during which you can decide what you want to do. We recommend that you go to one of Iceland's many attractions with a small group (geysirs, volcanoes, glaciers, caves, etc.) or simply rest if you need it.

Included in the event are:

  • Flights from your home country and an airport in your area (might not be the closest one since we need to take cheap flights for everyone to stay within the budget).
  • Accommodation in Iceland
  • Food and drinks
  • Entry fees for places we visit together
  • Travels within Iceland
  • Entry fee for the Midgard convention

Event Fee:

  • 40 Euros for Dragon Legion Members
  • 50 Euros for non-members

Funding

The event is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union that supports intercultural exchange of young people. This allows us to cover most parts of the travel costs and accommodation costs for the participants.

Who is organizing the event?

The people behind this event are active members of the Dragon Legion, young people who are interested in cultural exchange, creating innovative events, and role-playing games. We are all volunteers who organize this in our free time. The coordinator for this event will be Sigurður Jóhannsson, Dragon Legion's National Coordinator of Iceland.

Will there be more events of this type?

We certainly hope so. We already held several one-week events, such as an event in Iceland in 2014, in Greece in 2015 and 2016, in Sweden in 2016, in Germany in 2017, and in Greece in 2018. We are currently working on different plans. If you are from a country that is not eligible at the moment you could get in touch with us and help us open up the next event for your country as well.
