Russian RPG News

Whilst browsing aforemention Moscow news site I came across a few articles on Live Role-Playing which some of you may be interested in.

Russian Tolkien Fans Stage Role-Playing Battles (Mosnews.com; 30th June 2005) - well, only tentively to do with Tolkein....

Russian Tolkien Fan In Court After Killing Role-Play Opponent (Mosnews.com; 22nd June 2005) - and they were using PLASTIC swords...duh!

Elves and Hobbits in Russian Woods (Mosnews.com; 19th May 2005) - It really disturbs me that people will write such things as 'Hobbit' and 'Elf' as their ethnicity on National Census forms. The same way as choosing 'Jedi' as a religion in the UK a little while ago.....

Yeah, I must admit that it pisses me off as well when people treat the census as some kind of joke. I don't think people realise that it's actually a pretty serious thing that's intended to help the government serve the people in the best way possible, such as ensuring (amongst other things) that councils in poorer areas with greater requirements (i.e. more children with English as a second language, more people living in poor quality accommodation etc) get the extra government money they need.

Anyway... rant over. :)
