Huldufólk: The Hidden People

In Iceland, the settlers believed that there were hidden people, the Huldufólk, who lived amongst them. They lived in the forests, they lived in giant boulders. If you tried to build in their territory you risked their wrath. The peoples that inhabited Iceland were outnumbered by these Hidden People, and even to this day, the Icelanders emphatically believe that the Huldufólk live among them.

What if they were right? What if these creatures — these people — really do live alongside us, mirroring our lives, watching how we live, and shaping our future along the way? Furthermore, what would their story be like?

Huldufólk is a completely new Parlor Larp being written by WPI members, where the players take the role of a magical hidden people who influences the world on behalf of the Angels or Demons they serve. It is an urban fantasy game, focused on narrative yet competitive gameplay, where characters compete for control while still being able to work with each other towards the greater good. The entire Huldufólk system and setting is available on the game website. We’ve run Huldufólk playtests at three conventions, and are working on creating a playtest packet for local groups to try and form a Chronicle within WPI.
