In [[SovietRussia Democratic Russia]], LARP is often indistinguishable from historical reconstruction, not that anyone but hardass living-history types (and, more importantly, {{Jerk Jock}}s who are in historical reenactment for the fighting) tries to enforce the distinction much. There is a huge [[SortingAlgorithmOfTropes sliding scale]], from theater RP, where the absolute worst thing that can [[RealLife IRL]] happen to you is a rubber knife [[AssShove somewhere uncomfortable]], to [[https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/wiki/Buhurt buhurt]]-style faintly-story-driven mass violence, broken bones included.
