State of Infection is a Finnish Style LARP about social classes, fate and decisions in the middle of crisis. The larp is story driven with pre-written characters who have backgrounds, plots and a network of contacts. We expect players to read the materials and create the story together, respecting each other.
State of Infection has been run twice before, in Finnish, under the name Tartuntavaara. First run was in May 2017, second in January 2018. This third run is the first international version.

Please follow the Carriers to your assigned evacuation capsules. We have done our best to respect your travel companies and we apologize for all the inconvenience this causes.”
Everyone follows the instructions and keeps calm. Carriers know what they are doing. We are in good hands. What did someone say? Something about State of Infection?
