Manifesto of the Turku School
The Manifesto of the Turku School is a larp manifesto written by Mike Pohjola in 2000. It is one of the early texts of Nordic larp and has been described as "perhaps the most influential Nordic text on role-playing games".
The manifesto is normative, promoting immersion as the goal of roleplaying. It is anti-narrativist, and denies the possibility of telling pre-determined stories through role-playing. It encourages players to subordinate themselves to the larp organiser's artistic vision, with a "vow of chastity" containing strict rules for doing so.
The manifesto has been translated into French, Slovak, Russian and Polish.
