A LegendMUD Inside Look: 1917 Petrograd
“The year is 1917. In the Russian capital of Petrograd, unrest is brewing. Tsar
Nicholas II is becoming increasingly unpopular among the Russian citizens as
their economy lags behind that of industrialized Europe, and the Russian army
has been deeply entrenched in World War I for three years with no sign that
they are coming home soon. The Tsar himself has attempted, and failed, to lead
the troops to victory in Europe.
The Tsar's rule has been tainted since the Khodynka Tragedy at his coronation,
which resulted in the deaths of nearly 1400 people. In 1905, the first attempt
at revolution was sparked by the 'Bloody Sunday' massacre in which imperial
guardsmen gunned down peaceful protesters in the streets of Petrograd. The
people of Russia are suspicious of the Tsar's German wife and her too close-
for-comfort allegiance to the mysterious Grigori Rasputin. In the meantime,
followers of the writings of Karl Marx are planning and plotting, and the
nation is on the brink of civil war...”
