About the game:
In summer 2019 a massive team of over 180 volunteers brought to life the living breathing spaceship ESS Odysseus and in the course of three runs took over 300 players from 24 different countries on an unforgettable journey through the stars.
In summer 2024 the epic journey returns with three more international runs. Like the original runs, also 2024 reruns will be played in Finland in Helsinki region. Odysseus is a Finnish style larp for ~100 players set in a world inspired by Battlestar Galactica. It is a story about a band of survivors battling against an overwhelming enemy in the aftermath of a devastating attack on human colonies in a distant star system. It is a journey towards the unknown. It is a story about faith, hope and sacrifices. It is a story about survival.
The larp is essentially the same as the runs in 2019, so this is going to be a rerun, not a sequel. However, there are countless small and a few bigger elements we are planning to change. We have read through all the feedback we received and had countless conversations with organizers and players on what worked and what did not.
So what can you look forward to in this project? For old players, all the major elements will still be there. The underlying story will be the same, although there will be some adjustments. Some characters will remain unchanged while others will go through significant changes. There will be adjustments and improvements for many gameplay elements and much more love will be given to the civilian side of the larp.
For new players, we can safely say this is the larp you do not want to miss. It is going to be an absolutely epic journey onboard a highly immersive spaceship. It will be an experience of a lifetime.
