Moscow’s Latest Trend: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Role-Playing
You might be familiar with the practice of LARP – that’s live-action role-playing, if you’re not – and generally be under the impression that it’s all foam swords and cardboard costumes. Well, not for a group of dedicated Russian S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans!
These guys love to spend the day pretending that they live in an irradiated wasteland, based on the setting and story established in GSC Game World’s first-person shooter series. That means dressing up as survivors, zombies and mutants, and lots of hunting for artefacts.
For some great pictures of what the participants get up to, check out the full story on Reuters.
