Lateralus is a larp association dedicated to advancing and promoting larp in Croatia (written in a lowercase as in Nordic tradition). Members run their own larp projects, sometimes very different in style. Many games are influenced by Nordic larp and have artistic inspirations. It's still a newly formed group with a short history, but staffed by experienced larpers.

The most influential event so far has been the PoRtaL larp convention, spanning three days from March 1st - March 3rd, 2013. Many larp groups demonstrated what they do, theory articles were presented, workshops were done in both larp techniques and crafting, people spent time networking, and several larps were run (or even created) on it. The entire association took part in it, while the primary organizers were A. Rajner, B. Špoljarić and I. Žalac (that would be me).

Love is Blue is a translated Italian chamber larp for 6 people, written by Fabrizio Bonifazio. Originally translated and run by A. Rajner and B. Špoljarić (who also provides narration), several runs have also been organized by M. Zadro. Most widely played chamber larp in Croatia, and the one with most runs so far.

Tragači Zore (Seekers of the Dawn) by A. Rajner and B. Špoljarić was a larp held on October 6th 2012. It was a one-shot freeform fantasy larp which set in the world influenced by works of several Croatian fantasy authors.

Terra Nova by I. Žalac and M. Zadro (formerly also V. Kiralj and K. Premuš) is an ongoing high-fantasy larp campaign with themes of exploration, colonization, cultural conflict, and a large plot arc planning to span many larps.

Death of the Japanese Emperor is a short, modern, one-shot chamber larp for 4-8 players written by I. Žalac (me), and run several times so far (at the time of writing: as playtest, on the "ZaKon Dalekog Istoka" mini-convention where it premiered, and on SFeraKon 2013).

Koliba (The Cabin) is a short, modern, one-shot chamber larp for 7 players written by I. Delač and V. Kurilić, and run several times so far (at the time of writing: as playtest, on the PoRtaL convention where it premiered, on Istrakon 2013 and SFeraKon 2013).

A Party Full of Secrets is a short, modern, one-shot chamber larp for 10-23 players written by I. Žalac, and run once so far (on the PoRtaL convention where it premiered).

(Re)Union is a short, modern, one-shot chamber larp for 10 players and 5 GMs written by I. Delač, V. Kurilić, M. Zadro, B. Rastsmith and coordinated by me as part of the "Create a larp" workshop, created and run on the PoRtaL convention.

Izgon was a 32-day long pervasive larp by I. Žalac, with elements of urban fantasy and sci-fi overlapping the modern setting. It was run during March and April of 2013. A sequel lasted for 2 weeks in the second half of November 2013 - it had 96 players from 6 countries across the world.

Highland Games was a one-shot freeform fantasy larp set in the world which welcomes every traveller - characters from other larp worlds were possible, and they met. Games, food and drink marked this one-day event, organized by D. Martić and A. Štefan.

Limbo is a short, modern, one-shot nordic chamber larp written by Tor Kjetil Edland. One run had been played in Croatia, in June 2013., produced and organized by I. Žalac.

The Elder Scrolls Chronicles is a fanmade fantasy larp by M. Zadro set in the Elder Scrolls setting. While it's a campaign and events can influence one another, every larp has new characters written specially for it, new factions and it behaves like a one-shot.

Star Trek: Tethys is a short, sci-fi, one-shot chamber larp for 4-6 players written by I. Žalac and run once so far (in the Starbase Cantina sci-fi association). It features collaborative storytelling.

Astra Larp is an upcoming 12-day pervasive larp by I. Delač and V. Kurilić, with elements of espionage and literature planned for the second half of October 2014.

There are several larp projects planned for the future, including the mythology larp (by the entire association, coordinated by A. Rajner and B. Špoljarić), more Terra Nova sequels and runs of larps that already ran, educational larp, larp for children and others.
