Can Vampires Stand Sunlight?

Can vampires tolerate sunlight? What actually happens when you put a stake through a vampire's heart?

Come and talk vampire life with GALF! Representatives from the association show and tell about the hobby and, if you dare, offer a blood shot or two.

Boffer with GALF!

Gothenburg's Allmänna Lajvförening runs a boffer club, where we meet to practice different techniques for using light weapons in a safe, fun and stylish way. During the Saturday at Gothcon, you can come and try it out with our experienced instructors.

We start a shorter review at 11, 12, 13 and 14. After that, you can stay as long as you want and try different techniques and learn more. Come at the time that suits you best, or come back several times! We provide live weapons!

Assassin's Creed is a game that runs continuously throughout almost all of GothCon.

The game involves participants assassinating each other with a knife (banana), poisoning each other's food or drink (salt) or challenging each other at Russian roulette (D6). Players will be tagged with an armband.

Points are awarded for each kill and the participants who live 21:00 on Saturday get extra points. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins regardless of whether he is alive or not.

You can participate even if you are not at the convention the whole time and there will be at least two chances to revive/jump into the game after it starts.

Game rooms, dormitories and the cafeteria will be safe from knife murder.

To be involved from the beginning, you must participate in a start-up meeting (Max 15 min) Friday at 09:00, but you will be able to jump into the game at 12:00 and at midnight by coming to the event room.

Pre-registration is possible but not necessary, you can show up to the start-up meeting without pre-registration or jump in at given times.
If fewer than 10 people show up for the start-up meeting, the event is cancelled.

In case of questions or a need for a ruling, the organizers can be contacted via a Facebook group to which everyone participating in the game is invited.

In the event room, materials and rules (and often organizers) will be available throughout the game.
