Location: American and Canadian cities, usually in downtown areas.
Description and Behavior: The Gud Fud Gang is a cannibalistic street gang that specializes in human trafficking and contracted killings. It operates in many cities in the USA and Canada, and is made up of about eighty-one outfits. Each outfit is led by a member called a ‘Boss’. Members can be easily identified by their physical appearance. They tend to have extremely stocky builds, never being taller that six feet (1.8 meters) while typically weighing close to four hundred pounds (181 kilograms). Despite appearances, much of this weight is muscle. In addition to their build, members of this gang can also be identified by their large heads. Their heads have been observed to be four times as large as a typical human’s, with mouths described as being wide and lipless. Their mouths are large enough to fit an entire human head, and their jaws are strong enough to crush a skull without issue. The two anomalous qualities shared by all members is an incredible appetite for human flesh, capable of eating hundreds of pounds, and regeneration from non-fatal injuries.
Gud Fud Gang members are nocturnal and are most active from 10pm to 5am, though this does vary with the season and specific cities. The various regional outfits that make up the gang will use their active hours to search the streets and alleys for lone individuals to kidnap. It is then decided as to whether kidnapped persons will be ransomed, sold, or devoured. The main other activity of the Gud Fud Gang is organized hit jobs, either in service to the gang or paying clients. All activities carried out by the gang are usually done in groups of two or three. Members tend to avoid carrying out activities around large crowds, as it raises the odds of retaliation or the authorities being contacted.
The gang is unified by their loyalty to a being called ‘The Great Boss’, who seems to be responsible for the anomalous nature of all gang members. Said to be located deep in abandoned mines along the American east coast, it is described by survivors as a great mass with hundreds of mouths and thousands of long arms. The Great Boss is believed to have dug a complex series of tunnels between these mines, allowing it to unpredictably change its location to avoid being found by those wishing to harm it. The outfits of the Gud Fud Gang covertly take prospective members, willing or otherwise, to this Great Boss and it by an unknown process transforms them from regular humans into Gud Fud Gang members.
Recommended Actions: The Gud Fud Gang is by all accounts ruthless and brutal. They do have a very predictable time frame of operation, though, and can be easily avoided by simply not venturing into urban areas at night. If it is necessary to go into the city at night, try your best to stay in a group and avoid areas like alleys or other out of the way locations. If an encounter with a Gud Fud Gang member or members does happen, go as fast as possible to an area with a lot of people and call the police. Gud Fud Gang members have an aversion to crowds due to the potential for retaliation, so you are much safer there.
