Homepage Intro

When the Northmen first arrived in Iceland, they didn’t believe they were the first ones there. They believed there was a secret race of men, a hidden people: The Huldufólk. They knew this was their home, and this hidden people lived among the trees and boulders, watching them, influencing their lives, and punishing those that harmed their sacred places.

They Were Right.

Some are born in the hidden world,
heirs to the myths and legend of before.
Some are born between worlds,
forever torn between them.
Others are born in our world and stolen from it.
At great cost.

Whether called elves, fae, or Huldufólk, the Hidden People fight a secret war over the future of this world, and the humans in it. Their story is of struggle, betrayal, loss, and redemption. Just like ours, their story is far from over.

Huldufólk is a narrative game, focused on telling a story of the struggles of this hidden people attempting to mold the world in their image, while protecting their favorite mortals from each other.

Huldufólk is a spiritual successor to In Nomine, portraying the players as hidden people fighting to move the world towards good or evil, while fighting among each other about what either word means.

Huldufólk is a social and political PvP game, forcing the the characters to learn to live with their mortal enemies and backstabbing allies, thwarting their enemy’s efforts without ending their enemies themselves, for the cost of doing so is far too great.

To experience the feel of the Huldufólk world, read our story of a Lost Twin and her sister: Psych Eval.

If you’d like to experience Huldufólk for yourself, look for our game at Dreamation in February.

Huldufolk at Dreamation 2019

Huldufolk at Dreamation 2019

Look for us at Dreamation 2019, February 21st – 24th in Morristown NJ. Our Dreamation Huldufolk playtest is Larp Code L054, Saturday February 23rd 2pm-6pm. All materials will be provided, including characters and rules descriptions.

Down and Out in Centralia PA

At our Dreamation playtest, join the Huldufólk in the ghost mining town of Centralia, PA. The Huldufólk’s Banished are still nostalgic over luring the town’s residents into starting the underground mine fire which still burns decades later, though today only tourists and a few holdout families can be found there.

The Huldufólk now return to investigate growing stories of disappearances around the abandoned mines, with rumors that the fires below are glowing hotter than ever before. The Hidden People will need to deal with whatever is growing in Centralia before mortals take a closer look, and decide the old town’s future, if there is one.
