This may seem like an elementary/obvious question for most (so I appreciate your patience), but it's something I'd never heard of before coming to this site and am frankly quite puzzled by, as I'm from the other side of the Atlantic. What exactly is a syndicate? I understand that it's a group of stalkers, but beyond that I am fairly clueless, i.e. how does one join a syndicate? what is the function of a syndicate? etc. Thanks for helping a newbie out!
