Many processes, techniques, and methods have already been designed and tested by others in the larp world. From this wealth of expertise — both professional and community — we would like to acknowledge:
The concept of replaying the same larp a second time, and building on your experience of the first run, is something we first experienced at House of Craving and is re-purposed with permission. House of Craving was designed by Danny Meyer Wilson, Tor Kjetil Edland, and Bjarke Pedersen.
The structure and content of this website is inspired by the work of Participation Design Agency.
“Is that all you’ve got” and “Lay off” words first used in the Italian larp, Black Friday (words by John Shockley,) but based on escalation and de-escalation mechanics used in many larps.
The Lookdown mechanic was designed by Trine Lise Lindahl and Johanna Koljonen.
The monster inspired by Gil-Martin came about thanks to Beth Morrison.
We gratefully acknowledge funding from Kulturdirektoratet for our first playtest.
Larps are team efforts. Many people do work behind the scenes, give freely of their time and/or expertise, and support the creation of larps. Here are the names of people who have done this for Gothic.

Few ideas are unique. Here we acknowledge works by other creators whose work covers the same background and characters, or whose choice of name is similar to our own. In all cases we have become aware of their work only after completing our own.
