The Designers

A Day at Castle Krachfeld was designed by Alper Acik and Nazim Gizem Forta. Alper is the one with the red shirt and Gizem is wearing a hat, in the photograph. Long-time members of the Istanbul LARP community, we both had gamemastered LARPs before (but never together), and played in many LARPs. We call ourselves game designers instead of gamemasters because although we designed the game we were normal players once it started, we did not ‚master' anything.

We wish to thank the following entities for encouraging, helping and inspiring us:

- The players who were willing to join our experiment.

- The Trpgroup. The primary discussion group for Turkish LARP and role-playing theory in general. We thank all members of the trpgroup who were interested in our game.

- The Municipality of Kadiköy and the Baris Manco Kültür Merkezi, for giving us a near-perfect room to use for free.

- Eirik Fatland and other writers of the Dogma99 manifesto and the Europa handbooks. Even though we did not follow all the rules, we were greatly influenced by the Dogma99. Eirik helped us further by sending specific suggestions and ideas.

- Franz Kafka, for his works. See Before the Law.
