Eden. The city of opportunity, the pearl at the coast. Perhaps it was so once, back in the old days. When there was still the slightest taste of human decency in the air and a man’s worth was determined only by the sweat on his back.Now, the only paradise left in Eden is in the crimson covering the alleyway, the last breath leaving the form of a man. A sinner’s paradise, its guardians fallen from grace, pockets laden with fool’s gold and payment in the form of coined blood.Justice is a virtue, not a rule, and where the city fails to provide it, it must be sought elsewhere. In the barrel of a gun or the shape of fist, teeth scattered and scabs always, always falling off. Hide your wounds, hide your suffering, because they have no place here.“A man can be killed, but an idea is eternal.”And where else to find hope? In the mayor with his golden teeth, the officer with the crooked values? The idea is in the mask, in the name. The idea is revenge, order, justice, justice, justice. Where the institution fails, anarchy rises. And in anarchy you shall find your brethren and by your brethren you shall know your foes.
Heavily inspired by old gangster movies, “Devil’s Cape” by Rob Rogers, and Watchmen, Masked, Armed and Dangerous is a tale of a group of Vigilantes, taking the law into their own hand for different reasons. In Eden, a city once bright and prospering, the “law” is whatever money wants. And money is found in the hands of the mob. With a mayor merely a puppet of crime, a police in which everyone is on the mafia’s payroll, our heroes have been fighting for years to reclaim the streets. By the look of it, they’re about to succeed.Until one of them goes missing. Gunstruck, the “senior vigilante”, fails to rendesvouz one night. With two decades of opposing the status quo, Gunstruck’s made oceans of enemies. His knack of pissing off people, however, is a blessing in this situation; They will kill him. But they’ll kill him real slow.Technology is as it was back then, cars only affordable to the rich and phones stationary. However, society’s more modern ie. less sexism and racism.
