Every kid has their fantasies growing up about being a superhero, or a knight, or a princess (not that we ever judged that guy). Some have a harder time letting go of these fantasies than others as they grow up, which is why things like the SCA, LARP, and basement apartments exist.
And then there’s Master Legend and his Justice Force MySpace friends. Some of these guys are pushing 40, and have dedicated themselves to dressing up in homemade costumes and patrolling the streets at night to avoid gangs of middleschoolers and ridicule security guards.
We live in strange, decadent times.
