And as I just found out, Pepík Térů, a teacher and a local boy from Žďár, just like me, also fell in this fight. They said he was seriously wounded by a Dum-dum bullet. When his brothers from the company carried him with them, he couldn't bear the pain and begged them to shoot him. They did not want to, although the wound was hopeless. But when they were in danger of being ambushed and Pepík kept pleading, they resolved to do so; but they did it badly and Pepa even said: "I'm still alive, please, give me another one!"

Legion: Siberian Story tells stories of war, homeland, heroism, and people in a time of crisis. It is aimed not only at those interested in the time of the First World War, but also at everyone who wants to experience strong stories of everyday people.
Legion is a high-production historical larp by the Czech association Rolling. The game's story is set in Siberia in the time of the Russian Civil War in a unit of volunteers, separated from their army and forced to march through a no man's land to get to their countrymen and maybe also finally home. The players will take roles as fictional Czechoslovak Legionnaires and the civilians who joined them.
There will be two runs of the game in the winter of 2017:
Standard international run: 9 - 12 February 2017
Relentless international run: 16 - 19 February 2017
The signup for both runs will start on the 2nd of July. If you'd like to learn more about the differences between the runs, go to Practical.
The signup for the game is now open. If you want to sign up, please use this form: >>LINK<<. The first signup interval is from the 2nd to the 16th of July.
The game is suitable for players of all age groups. Before the game there will be several hours of intense preparation, which will help you get into the game; we will also provide a warm place to sleep each night, costumes, weapons, and food.
Every run lasts from Thursday around noon until Saturday night.
The first international run took place on the 21st to 24th of January 2016 and we would like to thank all our participants and all the help that made it possible. If you’d like to see what it looked like, go to Mementos.
In this diary I tried to describe what controlled me most during the whole time of this war; what influenced me; all according to the truth, as I saw and understood it.
