An explorative game about culture and folklore. You play as yourselves who are transported to a new world with no other people in it. Even though you bring nothing into the new world, your culture perspectives and biases persist. It is an important lesson to reflect upon, as many popular fantasy settings in fiction do contain cultural biases that may be harmful, but not immediately obvious to the audience (and perhaps even the authors themselves).
all we know are the things we have learned.

what does folklore and tradition still contribute to those who feel estranged from it?
this is a diceless, gm-less, turn-less, mechanic-free casual discussion larp, aimed at creating a space to examine the ways creating worlds from scratch cannot be done without bringing your own culture along.
