Ok, here's a little list about how to run a Ganger champaign. I tried to write it down with a bit of humor so take it what you will.

1: In a mon-a-mono grudge/respect match, 'Using your fists' means chains, whips, pipes, bats, boards (with and without nails), and glass bottles. Generally, anything except firearms and your friends.

2: It's perfectly acceptable to bring a gun to a knife fight. Just don't use it unless your opponet does.

3: It's perfectly acceptable to bring a knife to a gun fight. It's good to be prepared for when everyone else runs out of ammo.

4: When making a Moltovi Cocktail, be sure to use a glass bottle.

5: Your friends are your life. During a rumble, rival gangs are delt with first before personal feelings are brought in.

6: If you are the leader and somebody gives you a GOOD idea, share the credit. He'll remember that later.

7: If you are the leader and somebody gives you a BAD idea, let them carry it out. Then they'll know why it was a bad idea.

8: During the clean up after the rumble, give your friends proper rights. But your enemies are fair game.

9: When dealing with bodies, remember they are like cars. You can get more for the pieces then for the whole.



Well, that's about all I got. Anyone got any more or any comments?

When in doubt, reload.

It ain't dead til you put two in the head.

For leaders:

Your turf is YOUR TURF!, no exceptions.

Bigger is not better, A loyal crew beats a big crew.

If you have a rival to the throne, YOU throw down the gauntlet.

Maintain a good vehicle, own it legitimately and keep it legal from casual inspection.

Everyone has their price.

I recommend everyone reads The Warriors by Sol Yurick, or failing that - the book is old - go and watch the film The Warriors [1979] by Walter Hill.

Ammo is expensive... whenever possible, find alternatives. Never underestimate bows, slingshots, and Black & Decker drills.

The only thing Non-lethal ammo is good for is interrogation.

Feel free to recruit the sickos... just keep them on a leash.

If possible, maintain two or more vehicles in Thunderchild's described manner.

And remember, fighting dirty means fighting to win. Feel free to ambush rival gang members while they're alone.

And don't say "rumble" unless you're running a West Side Story game. :)

Or you're in a go-gang and talking about a bike.

Make sure your gang always has an enemy to concentrate on. Otherwise, that attention too often gathers around you.

First off, when Homer was fighting the leader of the Hell's Satans, they used motorcycles as weapons.

An important thing to include in your gang is history. Make it up if you have to. People join gangs for the money and good times. But people fight for causes. If your gang has a history, people will fight for that history.

Colors means more than life. If someone disparages your colors, hurt him, and hurt him bad. Publically and overwhelmingly. Outclass him if you can. Beat him in a fair fight, and then beat him some more.

If you're the leader, you want to encourage loyalty to the colors. You've gotta get these people willing to die for them.

When taking someone out, be creative, be messy, be loud, and send a *huge* message. Make it so that no one will ever want to screw with anything within ten miles of you ever again. Burn down houses, dismember, disembowl, dissolve, and burn. And let them scream in pain as loud and as long as they can.

Always have a good joke handy in case your gang leader orders you to tell a joke. Make sure it is not too good though, it might cause the leader to tell you to make another joke. Disobaying an order like that can get you killed. Usually jokes that involve implications of a rival-gang's stupidity and inferiority are the best suited.
