Gangster- The internet is a dangerous place. Gangsters are running around everywhere. Hailing from the mean streets of the internet, this breed of warrior cruises around the forum in groups of 3 or more, looking for trouble. They usually have some sort of identification, such as a distinct custom title, signature, avatar, or special characters in their username. Often, a weaker warrior will join a Gang for protection from other warriors. Gangsters can strike fear into even the toughest of warriors, as they rarely travel alone, are almost always armed, and will not hesitate to kick another warrior when he's down. In short, this breed of warrior does not know the meaning of a fair fight. Often times, a confrontation will start out one on one. However, if the rest of the gang senses that their fellow gang member might be in the slightest bit of trouble, they will all jump in at once. Even the toughest of warriors will get a few bruises and cuts after an encounter with a Gang in a dark alley. There are often 2 or more rival gangs posting in the same forums. This can result in gang warfare, and a huge shootout, in which innocent netizens can get caught in the crossfire. Oftentimes the moderator will eject the leader of the gang from the forum, which angers the rest of the gang greatly. When encountered on his own, often times the Gangster is not nearly as tough as he appears when he's with his crew, and can be defeated one on one. Sometimes if one gang member is finished off, or a moderator or admin shows up, the gang members will flee the scene, but will almost always come back later for revenge.
WARNING: If you manage to finish off one of the gang members, beware. Oftentimes, he will limp back, bloody and bruised, to the rest of his gang members and will come back full force for revenge when you least expect it.

Not badly written. However this is a smaller version of Swarm. A similar suggestion was put forward prior to this, but I don't remember what it was called. Some will think of Tag-Team.
The one problem is the concept, that even the toughest are hurt. While this may be true in Real World dynamics, which apart from physical encouters, extends to bulling tactics, and could be said to be even "political", it doesn't happen this way in the anonymous form of e-media.
An Android may defeat the purpose of an army of "tough" guys, and watch them leave. Artful Dodger is generally too quick for the loathsome thugs to even land a blow.
Other than that, it sounds like Winged Monkeys.
I should leave you links to the sticky that contains a brief list of sugestions already suggested since the begining of 2005, but I'm busy tonight. _________________ The important thing is knowing who owns the fence

It is available as a zip.
I was going to put more effort into it, but it occured to me, many, more than likely wrote to Mike separtely, with a longer or full definition.
Also this suggestion list is lacking in only but a few original suggestions in the Old Guest Book.. .. .. I know I did promise to drag them out as well, but my net time and personal time is in short supply.
I'll see if I can get around to this some time in the near future.
However, by not posting them, some members have come back to repost them, perhaps in their full form. (Actually this happened in the Old Guest book from time to time.)
Perhaps there needs to be a sticky advising those who previously graced the Guest book with a suggestion, to repost it with a working title OLD Guest Book: Warrior name - etc.
along with a link to the thread I started about where the old guest book can be downloaded. (That way I can get an idea of how many people have actually bothered to look at the thread and perhaps then download it.) _________________ The important thing is knowing who owns the fence
Gangster - This breed of warrior cruises in groups of three or more, looking for trouble. Gangs identify themselves with distinct custom titles, signatures, avatars, or special characters in their username. Often a weaker warrior will join the gang, because gangs offer identity and protection. Gangs are feared because they exhaust other types of warriors who do not have the ability to fend off a small crowd. This breed of warrior does not know the meaning of a fair fight, and often takes one-on-one confrontations to the "next level" by provoking a banning and then calling in the troops to wreck the place. _________________
