produce, Obey, and have a merry christmas!
Midwinter is a Nordic larp about the ultimate form of patriarchal capitalism: Santa's Workshop — and the jolly elves who toil there. It is a dystopian machine churning out toys and distorting age-old legends of Christmas.
The true stories of the elves have been silenced and forgotten. Rigid corporate policies dictate everything from caroling to candy canes and mandatory jollity inspections. Everyone wears a happy smile while keeping themselves busy — anything else would be a sign of serious indiscretion and idleness.
Memories of heartfelt joy and laughter, spirited work and play, and restful sleep with a full stomach are nothing but a dream. A dangerous dream. A naughty dream.
