But there are so many Runners out there, more every day it seems, and new or old it seems you sometimes need some advice. I know what a lot of you are thinking, "It's Proxiehunter" you're saying to yourselves "He's going to advise us to stab it with a knife." Others of you may actually remember advice I've given in your comments sections that didn't involve killing something, and in at least one case advice to not kill in that specific situation. Besides knives aren't for everyone they require a lot of skill to use well and a strong stomach. The results tend to be messy.
"So," you ask, "what is he going to talk about here besides how to kill a Proxy?" Well, for one thing I'm going to teach you how to identify Proxies. Not just the masked bastards of tall dark and faceless who got me started on my crusade, but the servants of other eldrich beings like the Puppets of the Wooden Girl James Carlson is dealing with, or the Camper of EAT, the Convocations nests, or the disturbing new implications of the Cold Boy gathering Proxies of his own. I'll help you figure out which can be fought if you're the type to do so and which you should run away from nearly as fast as you'd run from their master. I'll give information on how to tell when Slenderman or another Fear is up to something in your area and what to do if you think you or someone you know is being stalked by one of Them. I'll give tips on how to survive and tips on how to avoid getting arrested.
I've got a lot more rules than three so this is going to take some time. For now I'm just going to answer one question I'm sure some of you have been wondering about. Why did I misspell my user name? Well, doing what I do I run the risk of concussion. I happened to be suffering one when I made the first account under this name and I didn't notice the misspelling until I'd been using it so long it would be difficult to change. So now I'm stuck with Proxie instead of the proper Proxy. Sometime tomorrow I'll get on and post my "things every Runner should have". But now, that twitchy guy I've had my eye on is leaving the library. Time for me to follow him and make sure he's not about to put on a mask and snatch someone for the tall bastard.
