Russian 'grave robber made dolls from girls' corpses' 9 November 2011Last updated at 14:48 Dolls were dressed in grave clothes A suspected grave robber in the central Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is said by police to have made 29 life-size dolls from mummified female corpses. Local historian and cemetery explorer Anatoly Moskvin, 45, was arrested last week by police investigating a spate of grave desecrations in the area. The brightly dressed dolls, their faces and limbs covered in cloth, were found in his flat and garage, police said. It was not clear whether each doll contained a set of human remains. Police are now trying to establish the identity of the mummified remains. They said they had been investigating "numerous" grave desecrations in cemeteries in and around Nizhny Novgorod since last year. Footprints Video released by police on their website shows the dolls seated on shelves or sofas, in small rooms stacked with books and papers. No actual bones are apparent in the footage and some of the faces are covered by masks.

Gnome Stew: GMing Geist I was offered the chance to write a GMing article about White Wolf’s upcoming Geist: The Sin Eaters RPG, and I jumped at that chance. Geist is one of the games I’ve been looking forward to most this year, and I’m excited to check it out — and share it with you — a month before it’ll be available in stores. I got a free PDF copy of the full retail game (pictured to the right; here’s a larger cover) from White Wolf, and they made just one request: Don’t share anything about Manifestations, the Twilight Network, the Underworld chapter, and Ceremonies. I don’t need to address those sections to talk about running Geist, so you’re not missing out. So how would you go about GMing Geist? Want to know more? (In conjunction with this preview, I recommend checking out the free Geist quickstart PDF, which you can download directly from White Wolf.) Where I’m Coming From Over the past few years, the new World of Darkness system (nWoD) has become my favorite set of roleplaying rules. Geist = Wraith? 1.
