Delve into a World of Estonian History and Legends! We are finally back to running our RPG events and we are starting with a player event in Estonia this summer. In August (3rd – 11th) we will gather in a remote location in Estonia and play an epic adventure which ties in with Estonian folklore and explores the turbulent history of the northernmost of the Baltic countries. If you are interested in joining us, please apply below.
The event will take place from:
August 4th – 10th 2021
(Please remember to reserve a travel day before and after the event, keep those days free!)
The event will take place in an a remote area in rural southern Estonia. We will be close to Taagepera Castle and in the middle of beautiful Estonian nature.
Do I need to have any role-playing experience?
Although some experience will help you get into the game more quickly, you definitely don’t need any experience. We even run a beginner’s workshop to get you started. 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 will be using the Runestones system that we developed for the purpose of these events.
Who can apply?
You should be at least 18 years old and not older than 30. We can only accept participants from the countries listed below.
Currently slots are still available for: Estonia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Romania.
All applications will be reviewed and evaluated by the coordination team. The best applications will be chosen and both the accepted and rejected applicants will be notified. The application will be open until all slots have been filled, so applying sooner gives you an advantage.
What about accommodation and food?
We will be housed in Kivimäe Tourist Farm, in old houses of former Taagepera manor complex, in rooms for 2-5 people. The food, that will be prepared for us, will also have touch of old estonian traditions. Traditional sauna will also be included.
What about sightseeing and resting?
During the event we will spend some time outside, visiting locations that can give us the best impressions of rural Estonia. We expect you to turn up in time for the game sessions but there will be plenty of time to relax and sleep (however, you are responsible for getting enough sleep!).
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 Estonia
- Food and drinks
- Entry fees for places we visit together
- Travels within Estonia
- 40 Euros for Dragon Legion Members
- 50 Euros for non-members
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.
Why does the event have a fee if it gets funding?
We have a very tight budget and we would love to pay for everyone but we simply can’t. With the fees of 40 € / 50 € we can pay for the budget overrun so that we don’t end up paying extra for the event. We think this is a good price for a week of role-playing experience, including food, accommodation and travel.
If you cannot afford the fee but still want to participate please give a statement about it in your application. We know there are bad situations in some countries right now and we want to make sure that everyone has the chance to be part of this event, so we decided to have 1-2 slots for free for those who really need them. Please don’t abuse this.
We cover the travel costs for the flight, the travel from the airport to our location, lodging, food and drinks and any group activities. You just need to take care of your travel to the airport in your home country.
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.
Will there be more events of this type?
We certainly hope so. We already held several one-week events, for example events in Iceland, in Greece, in Sweden and in England. 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. Contact email: info [at] dragon-legion.com
