Post production update

A short update from the post-production front:

With very few organizers still active in the project the remaining things to sort out are moving at a definite sub-light velocity. Tomas and Cecilia have been working with the accounting which needs prioritization due to deadlines set by the tax authority. Tomas and Henrik have been working on sorting and selling tech gear and costumes. Sorting and matching presumptive buyers for the latter is now finished and we will get back to everyone that has expressed interest in purchasing a costume shortly.

Next up on the todo list are the t-shirts. There are still people who have paid for unclaimed t-shirts that haven't provided us with a postal address. If you're such a person and still would like us to send you a t-shirt please fill out this form. You can also use the same form to make an extra order of tshirts still, if you're interested. A lot of the other costumes are already sold, but some remain, primarily jumpsuits of all kinds and one blue Galactica officer's uniform size M. Is it really going to be left unsold?

We still exist!

Hello lovely space larpers!

First off we want to say thank you for the wonderful things you all did at the games and the stories you helped create. This would have been nothing without you guys.
I would personally like to thank all the great people I met and talked to at the events, you guys made all the work wort it!

We have been pretty invisible and we are sorry for that, we had a week off and then Easter came with all that that means. We are aware that a lot of you are waiting for updates from us and don't worry we are on it.
We are now working on getting all the t-shirts out, going through the lost and found and working on how to sell the costumes.
If you guys have anything you are missing from the larp send us an e-mail at info@celestra-larp.com and we get back to you about it.
And please be a little patient with us we are working on this and a lot of other post-production as well. 
We just wanted you guys to know we haven't forgotten about you.

So Say We All!

I just wanted to let you know that there will be a photographer on site after the games. So on Sunday you will have the opportunity to get your picture taken in uniform at the hostel by a photographer. The pictures will cost 50Kr and will be sent to you by e-mail.

There will also be photographers in the game that will be playing photographers so you treat them and their cameras like your characters would.

Hi have a text from Martin Elricsson for you!

The Monitor Celestra provides you with the costume (most of you) and character you need to catapult yourself into the world of the Twelve Colonies. But how aboutthose little details? A great thing about the Battlestar Galactica universe ishow easy it is to find great props lying about your home. We’re not expecting you to go shopping, but we do invite you to have a look around your house and bring a few items that gives your character more color. Here’s a few tips and guidelines:

Building week report: Monday


We are making great progress! The light is done, the cleaning away of unwanted things is done, the sound is as good as done and yesterday the consoles arrived, with all the tech boys!

We have unfortunately lost our cook (the props guy) to his day job but we have a new one coming in tomorrow. We will give you a video from the ship later in the week.

But right now I want to remind you of the system breif where you can read about how to maneuver the ship!
Go read it! It is inspirational and important and most of all very pretty.

I got a wonderful story in the mail from one of our participants and felt I wanted you guys to read it.

Friday Feature 2013-02-22


We are now doing so much stuff!

We are in Gothenburg, the first of us, and we are having such a great time. We are at the ship and at the hostel building and booking and dealing. We are trying to make everything fit together and getting wonderful reports from the people left in Stockholm. Everyone in the project are doing great things right now.
It's just one week left, people, one week!

Because of this puzzel we will be closing the online sign up for game one. You will still be able to apply for the last roles but only by e-mailing us at info@celestra-larp.com.

But we have not let you down we have some films for you this week too, unfortunately not from here but don't worry you will get those during the week.

Hello again lovely spaceheads!

This week you get a double video entry.
We have a real good video about the phantoms That I made with Elli. As great as this is it is a bit short so I decided to put in an extra video from when Fredrik talked to Anna-Karin about the Taurons. they go a bit deeper about what the taurons wear and how you should think around clothes if you are playing a civilian tauron. But first: Here comes Elli with the Phantoms!

Hi guys!

This is Fredrik speaking to you through the interwebs, I’m gonna be acting Sofia today since she is acting someone else (Larpers ya know)
This project is starting to kick into high gear. Our side of the curtain is buzzing with activity. Packages with props and costumes are coming in, the guys at fiction are wearing out their keyboards, tech is tuning the game and constructing consoles and prod is picking up the paper trail. Oh and marketing - Between friday features, flyers, and keeping the mailbox clean and neat, we're getting alot of attention for this project.

We're trying to create something really awesome and unique and we are getting recognized for it, which is really exciting.
While on the topic, i wanted to remind you about our event at SF-bokhandeln in Stockholm on the 15th.
check it out here

Some of you have been asking about the casting process. It's coming along, but casting 420 participants takes time and they're doing a fantastic job, and it pays to be thorough. But I managed to steal some time from Anna-Karin to make a video on tauron culture.

That’s all for this week
See you next friday!

Hello lovely space Larpers!

I have one of those weeks here again when I have almost too much goodies for you!
We have The Celestra Tech here today! They have given us super exiting videos and some explanatory text. All of us have been itching to show you guys this! And since I saw that Fredrik promised a write up on the simulation test he attended last sunday I have forced him to do just that!

But first I have to mention the absolutely awesome "First Briefing Letter" that went out to all our participants yesterday. You can check it out here. Or just go to the front page and get the printable version. Did I say it was awesome? It is awesome!

Today we are talking about the boat!

The ship, the destroyer or Småland as she is named.

March 22-24 Game Canceled; Other Three Games Are ON!

Unfortunately we have to announce that a fourth game on March 22-24 is not going to happen. With the amount of tickets sold so far we see no possibility to keep holding that option open. The first three dates (Mar 1-3, 8-10 and 15-17) are however still going to happen as planned.

Hi Guys!

So we are back after the holiday break and feeling rested and very pepp again!
This week you get a video of me and Adriana talking about power in the games and how the writers are working with balancing the different groups against each other and I think it is super interesting to pick her brain a little and get some insider info on how it is gonna work and how we are going to get some real drama in the game.
