Live by the sword, get investigated by the sword

As the old Assassin’s saying goes, “Nothing is true, everything is permitted.” Except for wandering around campus with your sword out, apparently, and no, that’s not a euphemism. Although, I wouldn’t try the euphemism either.

A HAZSoc member recently sparked a police investigation on campus, after bringing their LARP (live-action roleplaying) sword to a round of Assassins (a lighthearted game where you pretend to kill your friends and get points for it). Rumours flitted around Facebook of “a man in camouflage holding a knife” and helicopters circling over Constantine, but the truth was considerably less exciting.

HAZSoc have been reminded of the percieved danger these weapons can present, and – wisely – have taken steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Having talked to YUSU to discuss precautions, HAZSoc will now notify police next time an Assassins round takes place.

So they can get back to killing people with impunity. Now that’s a Christmas happy ending for you. Top THAT, Monty!
