Default Need help, looking for a font

I'm trying to find a Soviet-Looking font. I've already found a freeware one from 1998, but its not very high quality (called Soviet), and a much better looking one called East Bloc that costs $150. I need something that is free, preferably. Or even just good examples of Soviet-Style letters so I could make my own, that'd be great.

I'm not sure about what you're looking for... do you want a font that uses latin characters that look similar to the cyrillic alphabet?

Couldn't you try the character map?

Like, do you want the actual alphabet or what?

Is this the one you already have? It seems perfectly good to me.

You may call me Circus.

Ah, the character map is a great idea. Yeah, I'm looking for a latin alphabet with a soviet style, a lot like what Circus posted, with backwards R's, funny X's, stuff like that- just the fluffy bits.

That font is great, but it doesn't work well at the sizes I need it for. I think I'll just go ahead and adapt that + character map. Thanks for your help.
