Mechanika Inwazja Motywy Local Small Mob


Local small mob / Lokalna mała przestępczość zorganizowana

Co to jest

A small group of criminals which has usually either a council or one head honcho, which operates strictly locally. They don’t really want to expand; they simply want to be left in peace and to live better. They do tend to self restrain themselves and their group, also they tend to combat other groups which might not have the same restraint. Do not get me wrong – they are criminals. They do all those things criminals do. But they remain motivation is to live better, not to exploit everyone around mercilessly, so very often they can be considered to be lesser evil. Under some circumstances they can even be helpful to the community if their lifestyle would be endangered by the coming changes. Good example for this would be present in the “Sparhawk” novels by David Eddings.
