players

There is a big community of people in Russia, who at the beginning of 1990th were a bunch of teenagers, running through the forest with wooden swords. They made cloaks of curtains, run away from homes, knew the Tolkien by heart, played elfs, hobbits, musketeers and believed fine ideals of knighthood. Today all of them are adults with their own families, office jobs and routine problems, but most of them still continue role playing in the forest. Jana Romanova asked role players of different professions come to their work in their favorite costumes and play their favorite characters.
