With Jaska 11 being canceled, the main thing happening this weekend in larp circles will be Rikon, a sci-fi and fantasy convention in Rijeka which starts today. For Croatian convention standards, Rikon is a medium-size convention - however, unlike its relatively small larp scene, Croatia is a regional leader in number of sci-fi conventions and numbers of people they draw in, so it's quite a significant convention.
Larp-wise, Sven Nemet will hold a presentation about Para pokreće svijet larp today at 9 PM today on Rikon, in a room or section named "Gondor", so if you're attending Rikon be sure to see that presentation.
It seems that Jaska 11 is not the only thing canceled these days. Rajski Vrhovi feast planned on December 15-16 also got canceled (before it was announced though). Not due to weather or injury, but because the venue cost has been rised nearly three times compared to last year...
So unless another larp gets announced (such as last year's Gaia's event in Crkvari), this year's autumn larp season is pretty much gone without ever fully coming into existance, unlike the one from last year and this year's crowded early summer season. Apart from Maksimir and Krvomeđe events, the only large Croatian event of the autumn will remain last weekend's Tragači zore.
The organization efforts of Tragači zore are not finished though. There's an evaluation meeting next Thursday on SRP, for all participants of Tragači zore to talk about what really happened and talk about Tragači zore in general. Two surveys are up, regarding the past event and discussing future plans. The idea is to wrap everything up, and maybe put an analysis or a compilation of stuff online.
Here are all the photo galleries from Tragači zore:
If you can read Croatian, I wrote another review of the event, Watashi did the same and both are available on: http://larphr.wordpress.com/2012/10/11/watashi-i-naz-o-tragacima-zore/
