I'm making a topic here for my own benefit here, as well as anyone else looking to create their own gang for a fic.
So post any useful links, images or whatever just to get those creative head juices rolling in motion. Whether its to do with a real life gang like the LA bloods, etc. Made up ideas you wish to share for inspiration or even other games out on the market. Go ahead and share your thoughts on what a gang should be like.

I'll start off with Condemned Criminal Origins.

Crawlers: Sewer scum driven mad, they are fast but not exceptionally talented fighters nor are they too tough, and so they like to attack in groups of 2-4 to even the odds.
They dress in tattered clothing soaked in filth and scavenge whatever weapons they come across from broken wood, lead piping or more rarer, fire axes and shovels looted from subway maintenance lockers.

http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=main/8/21522463357.jpg&s=f10


Junkies/Vagrants: Homeless folks and enraged drug addicts. They are less organised than the Crawlers, frequently seen fighting and killing each other as often as their targets. This group are more well armed than many of the rest, carrying firearms and beating sticks.
They dress in whatever clothes they took with them upon their descent onto the streets and sometimes wrap their faces in crude masks made of cloth or trash bags.

Posers: Found within an abandoned Mall, these nutcases coat their skin in Plaster and dress in the filthy remains of what store manniquins displayed back when the Mall was still a prosperous place to grab goods.
The stand deathly still as if on display themselves, usually next to other Manniquins and wait for their victim's to pass by. Then they attack.
They are scarred and self mutilated, only when the plaster on their faces has been cracked or smashed off will this be apparent, but they are cowardly fighters, preferring to run away and 'hide' amongst more display stands in other stores. But when cornered they fight with the ferocity of madmen with nothing else to lose.

Thats all I can be bothered to post right now, I hope this serves someone well in giving them a basis to start off a gang or two for their works.
Please return the favor and post your own resources, thoughts or creations. Anything is welcome here.

Now Post! Or be featured in the next snuff flick.

The Onis: A Japanese gang that wear these demonic Japanese masks.

http://www.nohmask21.com/oni/oni2003/083ooeoni.jpg
http://www.nohmask21.com/oni/oni2003/055ooeoni.jpg

Clothing: Some wear white khaki pants and white silky jackets with Japanese characters written in blood red on the back of them. Some wear Black Khakis and black silky light jackets with Blood Red Japanese characters on the back. Here's what they look like and the translation to the characters' meanings:

http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... f9/oni.gif Oni = Demon
http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... f9/aku.gif Aku = Evil
http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... itigai.gif Kyoo = Lunatic
http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... /f9/si.gif Shi = Death
http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... tasatu.gif Tasatsu = Murder
http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... atujin.gif Satujin = homicide
http://www5.big.or.jp/~otake/hey/kanji/ ... ouryok.gif Bouryoku = Violence

Weaponry: Katana's, Wakizashi's, Nunchucks, Spears, Pistols, SAP-12 Shotguns,

Territory: Carcer City Harbor

Personality: Well, they are pretty psychotic because of their reputation. They crave violence and death, they live for it. Alot of times one will pop up out of nowhere to scare the daylights out of you and immediatly attack, not giving you time to think.

Dialogue: Some of them might shout out some words in English that the would understand but most of them are in Japanese, so unless you speak Japanese you won't know what the fuck they're saying!

Notes: These guys are the third most Ruthless gang of Carcer City (Smileys number 1, The Clowns number 2...etc)

The Congz: A Vietnamese gang (not to be confused with the Da Nang boys in San Andreas) They wear their trademark Traditional Vietnamese theature masks (and yes these masks really are Vietnamese)

http://www.smoothtrader.com/asia2you/It ... ks3213.jpg
http://www.smoothtrader.com/asia2you/It ... er3199.jpg

Clothing: Dark Blue Hoodies(sweaters with hoods attached and strings) white muscle shirts, Black T-shirts, finger gloves (that way they get a good grip on their weapons), light blue baggy jeans. and those shoes...similar to Cashes and their haristyles are either Bald or real short hair.

Weaponry: Machetes, Wooden Bats, Sawed Off Shotguns, Hunting Knives, & Revolvers

Territory: Chinatown

Dialogue:

"I'm Gonna Cut you like a dead chicken"
"I'm gonna slice out your eyes and stir fry them"

Personality: These guys may be kind of small there isn't alot of them that are tall and have the muscle power. But they sure can pack heat, they are really good at team work, looking out for their own and they will take on their enemy head on if they have to.

Notes: They are not as strong or have a reputation like the Oni's

Yeah actually, the whole japanese oni masks are pretty inventive. I'm surprised i didn't come up with it myself :P

I Dunno about the vietnamese gang though. But then its nothing that cant be worked on whenever necessary.

The Oni gang is definetely a keeper though, you can have a lot of fun with that. Which reminds me, I did find some Tengu masks which were surprisingly freaky, if I find the link again i'll throw it on for you. But if you have a look yourself you might beat me to it.

The masks? I thinks its brilliant as these guys shout out things in Japanese, and like the Smileys, you won't know what the hell they're saying but you know it can't be good.

But I like the Vietnamese gang, look at the Green mask it looks so..."Happy" I haven't came up with a good dialogue nor territory for them yet but I am glad that you liked my Japanese gang

I only say so about the vietnamese gang because since you posted I have had a look for decent resources on folklore, myth, culture and even criminal elements mentioned on the internet, just to post here for you.
I haven't really found anything that would be of use, where as the Japanese element has a lot more info to play with to change and alter as you see fit.

I just hope your having better luck with your info seeking than I am, thats all that really counts.


If your worried about picking a location for the Vietnamese gang you can always side along with like a City area. A jurisdiction under their 'protection'. Similar to what the Hoods were themed along.
Just make it so that the gangs tags and presence are heavily known in that particular area.

Though, thats just if you cant find anything better to suit their 'homebase'.

Well here's a religious based gang I have been tinkering with. Make of it what you will.








The Preachers: While many of the gangmembers involved with the Innocentz preach of the Black Goat, The Preachers on the other hand seek out to quell sin and stamp out taint wherever it may rise.
These zealots are deeply involved with their faith, they know the actions they perform are indeed sins in their own right, but in this day and age, with so much rot to be found in each soul there must be a stand taken if the true Innocents are to be free. Its a necessary sacrifice.
It takes a special kind of someone to be willing to put sinners to their deaths instead of showing mercy. So the Preacher ranks are few in loyal converts, but they have been able to recruit the desperate and destitute to perform as 'soldiers' in exchange for protection and acts of charity.



Clothing: The homeless soldiers of the Preachers dress in whatever comes to hand. Especially loyal or members that have been inducted for a long service are sometimes gifted with the traditional Hood and Cowl of the Preachers uniforms. These members will sometimes act as temporary leaders, dishing out orders to the newbies.

Loyal members wear an assortment of gear, ranging from priestly robes or garments, to casual sweats and Hooded sweaters. But the most common feature is the Black cowl.
Based on the executioners of old, the cowl signifies the divine last judgement that faces each sinner and is usually the last thing their eyes look upon.



Weaponry: Fireaxes(Heavy), Hatchets(Light), Revolvers (.38), Light Handguns(9mm), Wooden Bats(Light).



Territory: The Preachers used to reside within an old Church building, and would hold weekly meetings there each night.
But recently this building has been taken over by the Innocentz in a gang feud, so the Preachers have retreated to the subway tunnels to gather more followers.



Dialogue/Personality: The Preachers tend to whistle or hum cheerfull melodies reminiscent of prayers or hymns, the more deranged whisper prayers and beg for forgiveness for the actions they are about to commit.
They have been doing what they do since Starkweather introduced them in the late 90's, and have taken quite well to exterminating all the rapists, murderers, child abusers and other vermin that they have been told to hunt.
Needless to say, The Preachers dont really get along with many of the other gangs, ESPECIALLY the Innocentz, and will fanatically fight them on sight. It should also be known that while the Preachers are indeed killers and thus sinners themselves, each one is willing to give their own life in the name of sending another monster to hell. Afterall, if one sinner dies while trying to kill another, then 'everybody' wins.



Comment: I created a story a long time ago, involving a religious cult that punishes those who are truly guilty in God's eyes. I figured since I probably wont finish it that I'll feature them in an upcoming Manhunt fic in the future.

I see, you think the Carcer City harbor is a good place for The Onis? I got enough info on the Onis. But let me tell you about the Vietnamese masks I have failed to mention. Those Vietnamese masks you saw? those are theature masks and well since "Snuff" is techically a film...well that pretty much explains it. I was thinking about making their gang territory in a different section of Carcer City, a slum that looks to be similar to the Innocentz territory. I was thinking a Chinatown area of Carcer City, DON'T YOU DARE SAY I'M BEING STEREO TYPICAL BECAUSE FIRST OF ALL THIS GANG IS NOT CHINESE SECOND, THE JAPANESE GANG HAS THE HARBOR!

The location I suggested earlier was kind of what I was thinking of when I posted it. So no worries about the chinatown part.

I figured there would be a kind of theatrical nature to the mask, as I was instantly hit with the whole Kabuki theme upon looking at the images for both the Oni and the Congs.
It's still a great concept and I think it will serve you well when you begin writing, if theres anything specific you want me to hunt down i'll do my best to help, but it looks to me like all you have to do is think of the scenes in the harbour setting and city setting, translate some Japanese/Vietnamese Dialogue and put it all into writing.

You could always use broken english, or just write the hunters speaking in a language that the Prey doesn't understand but doesn't like the tone either.

Whatever's easier.

The Nomads:The gang consists of drifters and homeless people who take enormous ammounts of a drug called "SPANK" which boosts their energy, and also makes them psychotic murderous lunatics. When seen they are saide to have abnormal seisures, causing them to twitch all over from the effect of the drugs they take.

Weapons:Crude baseball bats with nails in the sides and the top filled with razor blades,ninja stars and their main weapon a club with 2 sickles fixed in the top, barb wire wrapped around the middle.

Gear:Clad in trenchcoats, baggy grey jeans, converse, scruffy hair and a long bandana covers their faces

Area:Slums of Carcer City
