    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    A Guide to Vigilantism (WIP)

    Idealogy - A vigilante's mindset is one of purpose, determination and honor. Their purpose is to protect good people who are unable or unwilling to protect themselves.

    A mind for revenge is the mind of a murderer. It will get clouded by bloodlust and will make irrational choices that will only endanger themselves and others.

    A true vigilante does what the do because they feel the systems in place are inadequate. This could be due to corruption, laziness, or any number of other factors.

    What the vigilante must realize is that the ultimate goal is to make things better.

    How to do this?

    As funny as it sounds, the newest Batman films hit it on the head.

    A person can be killed. Bought. Forgotten.

    But if that person can become more than flesh - if they can spit in the face of a bribe, let live a murderer - if they can do this, merely their name will deter criminals.

    Equipment - this is a moot point. Anything can be used as a weapon with the right mind. Ultimately the goal for equipment is to have what is needed to accomplish the objective.

    Need to take down a drug dealer on a corner? Mace and a stun gun will do it. Need to take down a crooked politician? A camera and leverage will get it done.

    Disguise - this is almost a moot point, as a 5'5"-6'0" medium build white male can blend into just about any environment. And ultimately that's what a vigilante wants. Leave a calling card or a symbol at the scene to spread the legend, but in all actuality be one of everyone else. The more average the better.

    Transportation - again a moot point. See above.

    So is it needed or is it a moot point? Anything can be used as a weapon? That must be why professional assassins don't fall back on a few tried and true methods and instead are always killing their marks with chalkboard erasers and staplers.

    Need to take down a drug dealer on a corner? Mace and a stun gun will do it.
    A drug dealer so notorious that vigiliantes are needed have more behind their door than mace and a stun gun.

    Disguise - this is almost a moot point, as a 5'5"-6'0" medium build white male can blend into just about any environment.
    Right, because who needs street justice more than the average white guy?

    If you're serious about this it wouldn't hurt to check out this guy:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Jones

    Either as a role model or a cautionary example.

    Oh **** it. He's a cautionary example...

    How could this go 4 pages without the mention of
    Phoenix Jones and his Rain City Superhero Movement?

    You guys are just asking for a villain to show up and battle the forces of "good".

    I've already got my costume picked out.



    Are you ready?

    (Honestly, I was thinking a comic book lime green suit would be humorous as well, but its harder to breakdance in those baggy ass CBRN suits..)

    He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.
