ConQuest 2021 is a 5-day self-catering tenting-con from August 04 to 08, 2021 and takes place around Brokeloh near Hannover.
Since 2004, the ConQuest has been held annually in August on the fantastic playground Brokeloh, near Hanover. In 2021 we are looking forward to a new experience, numerous adventures, interesting plots, great character driven gameplay, a city that never sleeps or stops celebrating and magical ambience.
The ConQuest is a grand LARP event where about 6000 players, 1500 non-player characters and some fantastical creatures meet every year in August to breathe life into the magical world of Mythodea. More than 1000 storylines, puzzles and adventures have to be solved with brains, brawn and skill to steer the fate of Mythodea in one direction or another.
Anyone who has ever imagined what it would be like to go into battle as a knight, to live as a powerful mage or to be sung of as a noble lady by brave warriors is in the right place in live role-playing, because here you can do exactly this and so much more! Every year, our team transforms a knight’s estate in the middle of Germany into a fantasy world for you to immerse yourself in for a weekend with the help of elaborately constructed backdrops, carefully planned sceneries, effects and numerous ambitious extras. Meet fascinating characters, celebrate in the medieval taverns or pit yourself in swordfighting and leave all the worries of everyday life behind you for five days!
Here you can find the current information about the main plot of the Mythodea campaign.
The settlers have uncovered a powerful weapon against the undead at Sturmwacht Castle, on the island of Ghost Rocks. This is a creature of Terra called the Seedling (Keimling). Could this be the key to finally defeating the undead?
According to reports of the Southern Seal, the undead outpost of Harrowmoore is defended by the Last Banner of Undead Flesh. After a victory here, the road would be cleared to Ankor Mortis, capital of the undead.
The peoples of Mythodea march united towards the southern continent, against Ankor Mortis, the capital of the undead!
It is finally time to destroy the arch enemy.

Outside the area there are designated parking areas where you can park your cars for the event. There are no parking fees and you can pick up your car at any time to go shopping.
Driving on the grounds and the parking lot with your own vehicles of any kind is at your own risk. The organizer is not liable for damages caused by participants or third parties. The event parking lot is not supervised. There is no liability for theft.
Parking outside the marked parking areas is prohibited. Vehicles parked illegally will be towed away.
The costs (plus 25 € handling fee) will be borne by the vehicle owner.
Loading and unloading of vehicles is only permitted in the loading zones marked by the organizer. The maximum loading time is 10 minutes. If this time is exceeded, the vehicle will also be towed away at the owner’s expense.
During the event, sufficient toilet and shower containers will of course be provided throughout the grounds, which will be cleaned regularly. Additionally we will set up Dixie toilets. As on every festival, there may be waiting times at the sanitary facilities at certain times. It is very important to think of toilet paper every time you go to the toilets, as we do not provide it.
Live Adventure can only release drinking water after sampling and approval from the health authorities.
Loss of Ticket
If you have lost your ticket, you can simply log into the skald.com and print it out again.
Loss of Wristband
If you have lost your wristband, you can report to the HQ tent, where you will get a new one.
Please bring your identity card and your torn off wristband with you.
The Johanniter paramedics team will be directly on site 24 hours a day.
Don’t be afraid to visit them even for minor health problems like wasp stings, because that’s what they are there for. In case of an emergency, please inform an SL, who will immediately make sure that Johanniter – possibly with an ambulance – can reach you. For this reason, there are rescue routes that must be kept clear to ensure that the ambulance can get through everywhere. Please be aware that every trip back from the hospital or in case of minor injuries from the event area to the hospital has to be organised by yourself. We can only recommend a taxi company that is available at a reasonable price for such a trip.
Like last year, we will set up (very large) marked garbage containers at the edge of the site, where you can easily get rid of your garbage.
Please put your garbage into the containers and do not put it in front of them.
An open door may tempt a saint.
Unfortunately, things do get stolen.
Therefore it makes sense to play it safe and lock up the most important things, e.g. keys, wallet etc.
Be aware that with about 8000 participants there might be black sheep among the crowd.
Therefore, do not leave any valuables unattended.
Do not store anything obviously valuable in places that are easy to see and can be entered unobserved.
Credit cards, front door keys and the like should be hidden in the car, for example.
Accommodation is in tents that you yourself bring with you and which are suitable for the ambience of the event. If you don’t have a medieval looking tent, you can camouflage a “normal tent” with sheets or nets. Get advice from experienced players in our forum. Unfortunately we cannot offer central sleeping places, but the last years have shown that many players organize themselves into community tents through our forum. If you don’t know where you can sleep, just have a look there.
Please note in your camp planning that we calculate a maximum of 15m² per participant. This is the total area per quarter, this does not give entitlement for each individual.
The allocation of the tent site is based on the registration for a banner, a quarter or a group. Registration will be possible from spring 2021. Those who have not registered for a specific quarter by then will automatically be allocated to a quarter.
What is the Garrison Inn?
Included in the Garrison Inn deal is a ConQuest player ticket and a fully furnished and set up tent. This eliminates a lot of transport problems and you can start playing right away.
Why do we offer the Tenthotel Deal?
For many international LARPers, but also for German LARPers, the journey to the ConQuest, the setting up of the tent and the equipment is connected with a lot of hasstle.
This is where the tent hotel comes into play:
The tent hotel should make the logistics easier for arriving at ConQuest. We will set up a tent for you, set it up for you and take everything down for you!
All you have to do is LARP.
What is included in the Tenthotel Deal?
With the booking of the tent hotel you will receive a ConQuest player ticket and will be accommodated in a tent (for one person, 180cmx250cm) which is ready to be set up.
If you book the double deal, you will receive two ConQuest player tickets and a tent for two persons (250cmx300cm).
The tent hotel will be adjacent to the Tross and will be screened off by the authentic in-time tavern “Garrison Inn”.
The package includes:

- Light source
- Storage box

The Tavern: Garrison Inn
The tent hotel is located in a secluded out-time area, which can be reached through the cosy tavern “Garrison Inn”. Here you can relax and unwind with a cold or warm beverage. The tavern is authentically lit, offers you seats and fire pits where you can tell each other grand stories. Another advantage of the “Garrison Inn” tavern is that you don’t have to walk a long way to your fully furnished tent, because it’s only a few steps away.

All players and NPCs are self-catering. Fires may be lit at designated fireplaces or in fire bowls you brought yourself, (NOT on the ground) at a sufficient distance from the forest or bushes.

Beyond that, however, the retinue offers even more: Numerous dealers for everything the knight or bard’s heart desires – from armour to drinking cups and all kinds of everyday stuff. In between there are large and small taverns where everything is served that strengthens body and soul after a leisurely stroll or into the early hours of the morning.
