The Build Up Your Gang forum story game has been an icon in the GTAForum community for well over 5 years now. We are proud to present Build Up Your Gang once more. With the staggering success of BUYG in the San Andreas sub-forum, the BUYG Staff are proud to present BUYG: IV. Now that Grand Theft Auto has been well worn by sweaty palms, it’s only natural Build Up Your Gang be there for the creative and the dedicated.
The concept of this is not hard; you simply pick a gang and one of its areas. You then write stories for that gang and asset. You will receive $$$ for the stories you write. Remember, better stories means more $$$ (no one said length was a bad idea either).

We hope you’ll take part in the fun

HOW TO JOIN
Just post your first story, for which gang and at which location it is set, and when Staff get around to rating stories, your name will be added to the list of scorecards below.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

About the new format... this time, it’s personal
With a New Year comes new joys and Build Up Your Gang IV is starting 2011 with a total revamp:
1. You can now write for up to five gangs.
Gone are slots and the need to find a space in a gang. If you want to write the for Gambettis, start writing for the Gambettis. Bored of the Gambettis and want to try the Irish Mob? Feel free, it’s all part of the game. Be mindful though, that a five gang limit is in place to promote better quality and assist with Staff’s work.
2. Likewise, your hard earned cash no longer belongs to a single gang. It’s yours for you to do as you wish, however and wherever you wish.
3. Properties are no longer reserved for a single writer.
4. All your information will now be collected in a single writer’s card. Scroll down or follow this link further information.
5. Each Gang has a starting vehicle. Plus, each new member starts with a pistol.

Rules for Build Up Your Gang: IV
General Rules & Guidelines
1You must not post more than one story in a 24 hour period.
2If you cannot come up with a complete thought please don't bother posting what you have at all. Just save it in notepad or word or something and come back with a complete story.[/i][/u]
3Please don't post half of a story and say you will be back to update it later as this can cause confusion to those that have to grade your stories.
4To make it easier on us please check your spelling and grammar carefully as it makes it harder for us to read and grade them with multiple errors.
5Please refrain from "flaming" other members as this will get this topic one of those neat, but unneeded, locks.
6Most importantly if you need any help or assistance with writing/brainstorming/developing stories or if you feel the need to comment on the thread then please contact me with your opinions/expressions/concerns/problems. In addition to this if you feel that rule 4 had been broken please contact us before taking any action yourself.
7NO DOUBLE POSTING, just edit your initial post.
8We the BUYG Staff reserve the right to ban you from the topic if you break any of the rules. No exceptions.
9Conversation is allowed in the topic. But refrain from going off topic.
10Please refrain from cluttering up the topic. Try and keep any questions regarding purchases, gang wars, cash, story count, etc. brief and avoid unnecessary discussion, preferably by keeping to PMs where possible.
Weapons & Vehicles
1Guns and vehicles are purchased from your total cash, not your earnings for a single gang.
2On joining a gang, you will have access to the gang's default vehicle.
3Additionally, on your first post as a writer, you have access to a pistol. This only applies to your first ever story and not on subsequent moves to another gang.
4You may only use the weapons you own for the gang you are writing for.
Own a Sub-Machine Gun for the Ancelottis and want to write about one for the Hillside Posse? You have to buy another for that gang.
Drugs
Coming soon…
These guidelines and rules have been brought to you by the BUYG Staff.

If you have any questions or problems regarding BUYG, in any of it's forms, then please contact Build Up Your Gang via PM.

Lochie's guide to writing
You feel like writing? Well, this is the place for you then. Read below for some helpful advice and stuff.
1. Characters, locations and storylines: Develop your characters well, try to avoid using well-known characters from GTA IV as your main character, but instead make up your own. Its alot more fun and original, its okay to include characters from GTA IV, but just don't rely on them all the time, get creative. With locations, be certain you've got the scenery and street names down pat, try to avoid silly little mistakes. Plan your stories out and make sure you have a feel of the location. Storylines are easy, just try to avoid cliche's.
2. Spell Check:

Spell Check is vital, a bad story = less money and annoyed staff
QUOTE
mi nd niko split sum beers and herd dat wi had 2 go hit up demtri
niko: les go bust dis guy, he mess me round 2 long
me: yea niko lets go get or moni bk
so wi got in his car nd turnd da radyo on and boobed along 2 da musak as wi pulld up to alderney sttion where we herd demetri wud b dealing sum drugs. i see him and get outta da car, i check muh gun den run up 2 him
me: demetrei u owe us sum money foo!
nd i blssted his head off


That's just horrible, use MS word. If you've got a burning idea but can't finish it, save it in Notepad and come back to it later.

Ahh yes, the initial money has been added. I can't really decide which gang to join until I actually get my hands on IV for PC, but for now, please add me in at Torres Cartel, Old Hospital.

I'd join the North Holland Hustlers at Dwayne's apartment, but it will take me a while to get started with ideas and such.

Lets get things kicked off. Short but should help out.
-------
Irish Mob, Steinway Beer Garden, Chapter 1: The Ol' Land

Guinness goes down quicker with violence; that’s what my old man use to say. I slammed the glass down on the bar table and yelled at Mikey over the music;

“Aie ya bloody bastard, I think we’re needed down at the docks.”
Mikey turned around and let out a burst of smoke in my face, “Sorry mate,” he laughed and put the cigarette out, the burning embers spread across the ash tray. He checked his watch then stared back up at me. “Yeah, Bobs gonna be pissed, we’re about an hour late already.”

I dragged myself out of the bar as Mikey pushed patrons out of the path to clear room for what was my lumbering drunken state. I nearly fell to the ground but latched onto some unlucky blokes shirt; a large ripping sound filled my ears as I clutched the fabric from the mans shirt in my hand shirt.

“Mate, you gonna fix that?” He held me up in his arms; his shaved head shone in the moonlight as I swayed back and forth in his grip, he shook me “I asked you are you gonna fix that?” I looked into his eyes and grinned; then planted my forehead into his nose. He let his grip and grabbed his face as I made a dash knocking over tables and screaming at patrons as the man gave in chase.

I ran down an alleyway as my pursuer sprinted after me; cackling my head off I took a turn around the corner and into the car park. Our car was there but Mikey was. I dashed over to the car as the man rounded the corner; he stopped and pointed at me.

“You’re f*cked mate!” He had taken his shirt off and wrapped it around his fist.
“f*ck off you bloody twat,” I yelled at him as I swayed from side to side, I steadied myself by leaning on the hood. The man took a step out of the alley and then fell to the ground screaming in agony. Mikey stepped out of the shadows as he wiped the knife clean and headed over to the car.

“You royal c*nt.” I laughed and stroked his hair; he opened the passenger side door and threw me in. He jumped the hood
and started the car.

We sped out of the corner just as an entourage of the mans friends came pouring out of the alley.

Aw shiiit! Never even knew about this. Canny good, I'll lend a hand wherever possible. Once I get a PS3 and IV, I'll be able to join in fully. Hope this gets popular.

I was wondering, maybe The Irish Mob should own some territories in Purgatory? Like the pub (I forget what it's called) or somewhere else? I'd join The Irish Mob, but I cannot pull that much imagine out of my ass when writing for the Alderney Warehouse.

Skimask101: Added. Two gangs will be added per week as the number of participants increases.

DanManUtd: Added.

Jacky Fiend: I'd imagine more locations will be added as more people join. I myself don't have IV, so I'll talk to some of the other staff to sort it out.

The Beginning... (Episode 1)

So, it was a sunny Friday afternoon. Me and my two friends (who are both Jamaican, I however am a London born Jamaican) signed up to the Hillside Posse of whom my brother and my father had in the past also signed up to. The ignition ceremony was simple. Beat up a rival gang member who's within our territory (as they always are wondering around here) and take a photo as proof.

So me (Bobby) and my two friends (Christian and 'Greezy Boi' aka Jeff) set off firstly down Wenrohronon Ave and we came to the alley that connects Wenrohronon Ave and Tutelo Ave. Even though there is hardly anything nor anyone of gang importance down there, there was this time however a black Patriot with a sticker in the window saying 'Firefly Projects kick ass' was parked down it with three men with appearances of which resemble the M.O.B in every way.

The fight between us and the 3 M.O.B members began.

It was a 1-on-1 fight (three of them and three of us).

"Take that ya bumbaclots!" Christian shouted. We finished with them. All three of them were on the floor unconscious. We left a note in their pockets saying 'Return alive, leave dead' and took the pictures.

"Nice one Rastah's! The boss' going to be bare happy." I said knowing we'd done our job and that we were now official Hillside Posse crew.

I'd like to give this a go...sign me up for the Irish Mob in the Alderney warehouse.

I was just wondering...is this the old "Sprunk" warehouse or a different one? Where on the map is said Alderney warehouse so I have the street names and surroundings correct.

The Mission where Packie and Niko rob a Mafia owned Dump. In the beginning when you drive there one of Packies buddies names all of the Mafia families. sly.gif

Jacky Fiend: I'd imagine more locations will be added as more people join. I myself don't have IV, so I'll talk to some of the other staff to sort it out.

In that case, I'd like to join the Faustin/Rascalov Crew at The Cabaret Club, please. Considering Sentinel XS filled the final position for The Irish Mob.

I'd like to also, if I may, make a few suggestions of behalf of The Russian Mafia. Firstly, I'd recommend the Faustin/Rascalov Crew were replaced with the Petrovic Crew/Family. This is mainly due to the fact that Niko kills both Faustin and Dimitri by the end of GTA IV; effectively wiping out the family. Petrovic is still powerful come the of IV, making them the obvious choice.

Secondly, I'd recommend replacing the Uranus with the Rebla. The gang is mostly seen driving around in black Rebla cars. When playing for the Petrovic Crew in Bomb Da Base II, you also start off with a pair of black Reblas, further strengthening my argument.

I'd also suggest that the Cognoscenti be their unlockable vehicle, as Petrovic has one of these parked outside his mansion in Deal Breaker (with a further two being parked in the garage).

On the subject of The C omission. I don't believe there is a need for that many Italian-American Families in BUYG. The Pegorino's are an obvious choice, because they played an prominent role in the game. We know hardly anything else regarding the rest of the gangs.

We don't need other families, we have no plans on adding them in right now or in the future, I think one Mafia family can suffice.

@Jacky: Good point, changed
@Sentinel: The Alderney Warehouse has been changed to the Lucky Winkles bar in Algonquin. I've added you in, but if you change your mind just say so.

Stories:

Mine needs to be marked.
-------

@DanMan: Very decent for a first story, the only problem is that its a tad too short. But we are all getting use too the new BUYG and gangs, so its easy to understand. $21.

UPDATES TO EXPECT
Two new gangs on Tuesday, Triads and M.O.B.
Gang war rules, re-vamped

@Sentinel XS: The Lucky Winkles Bar is located in Purgatory, Algonquin. The easiest way to find it, I'd imagine, is to take one of your friends out for a drink and then it'll show up on the map.

~Phusion~
Irish Mob
    1st Story:
    +$45
    Great first story. There's a few words missing here and there, not to mention the odd word repetitions. A bit short, but that's nothing bad considering the quality of the piece.
    $100 + $45 = $145

Irish Mob, Lucky Winkles Bar, Chapter I: Alone In The Dark

As I look around I am mesmerized by the kaleidoscope-like reflection of the window lights and neon signs in water collecting on the rain soaked street. Passers by don’t even seem to notice me…sitting in the dark…alone. It’s Saturday night, just after 11 pm, and Galveston Avenue is busier than usual. “Must be happy hour at Lucky Winkles,” I think to myself. I notice myself wishing I could be amongst those happy and carefree people, laughing and joking with their friends as they enter and exit the establishment. But alas, I’m stuck sitting in my car waiting for a call, a call that could change my life.

Guess I should tell you who I am and why I’m here…hell…might even help me figure out some of this mess if I recap it again. My name is Zeke, short for Ezekiel, a biblical name that my mother was inspired by and thought would bring a blessing upon her son and maybe some good luck in life. Up to this point it seems to have had an opposite effect. I’m of Irish and German decent and recently moved to Liberty City. I have a few distant relatives that live here and they have seem to have some powerful connections throughout the city. They invited me to start working with them on various jobs because they said they really needed a good man, someone they could trust.

I’ve done a few odd jobs with them so far, nothing too difficult or too dangerous, but that all changed a few days ago when my cousin said there was going to be a little change of pace in the near future. He wasn’t the type to let you in on all of the details until he found it necessary…something I was slowly getting used to dealing with. From what he did tell me it seemed obvious that this job was going to be different. He instructed me to take the car and get it ready to go.

“Get the car washed, top off the gas tank, make sure the guns are in the trunk loaded and ready for action, and get yourself in position on Galveston Ave. by 11:15 pm,” said Patrick. “Tonight is going to be a big night and we don’t need any screw ups.”

I told him I understood and that he could count on me to be there, ready and waiting. So here we are…11:12 pm and I’m left wondering what is going to happen next. My mind starts to wander again, looking at the people through the bar’s windows, when suddenly I see a few men walking toward the car. The rain falling on the windshield makes it difficult to see whom the men are and if they are going to be a problem. One of the men pulls something from his coat pocket and starts to move his arm upward…my heart races and I think that this may be my end. To my relief it is only a cigarette lighter and the glow of the flame illuminates the man’s face enough for me to get a good look at him. It is my cousin’s friend Pete, which means the other two men are my cousin Patrick and his other friend Michael. I laugh softly to myself at how nervous I was and start to regain my composure.

Pete finishes his smoke and they all get in the car. “Good to see you me boy, start the car and head for Alderney,” says Patrick. “You remember Pete and Michael, right?”

“Yeah, I met them at your place two weeks ago when we were playing cards,” I say. “What’s the plan Patrick?” I ask as I make my way onto the bridge connecting Alderney and Algonquin.

“We’re meeting some people at a dock in Westdyke,” says Patrick. “We’re going to provide some protection to another group that is looking to purchase some drugs from…I think they’re Koreans. Anyway, this other group is also Irish and it seemed only right to help them out, since I think we all know how these kind of deals can go down.”

“We get the guns out of the trunk and stand behind these guys. Anything happens that don’t look right, or if things go really bad, we will be there and be ready, got it?” says Pete, as he lights another cigarette.

“You’re pretty quiet back there Michael, everything alright?” I ask.

“Yeah…yeah…I’ll be fine. I was just thinking about things and hoping everything goes off without any trouble. I never used to mind this lifestyle until I got married and had a kid. Really makes you think when you go on jobs like this…each time I go could be my last,” says Michael. “I’m starting to think maybe I need to find a regular job and quit chasing the ‘easy money,’ that never seems to be easy at all,” he laughs for a brief moment and returns to looking out the window.

“Turn left here,” instructs Patrick. “This is the road that leads to the docks where the meeting is going to take place…and it looks like we are right on time…that’s their truck parked down there”

The clock on the dash displays 11:52 pm, as the black Vincent slowly makes it way down to the docks. The headlights illuminate the side of a green Contender. Two men stand in the rain, beside the truck. They seem glad to see us as we come to a stop and exit the car.

“Right on time, I like that Patrick. Should only be a few more minutes until the delivery gets here…you bring the guns?” asks one of the men.

“What kind of a friend and businessman would I be if I didn’t deliver as promised?” exclaims Patrick as Pete and Michael unload the guns from the trunk. “I’ve brought three of my best men and some of the finest hardware you can get your hands on in this fine city…we’ve got your back and are ready for anything they can throw at us.”

Moments later, headlights pierce the darkness as a vehicle approaches the docks…

…to be continued
