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. The concept of this is not hard; you simply pick a gang and one of its properties you then write stories for that gang based at that property. You will receive money for the stories you write. This money then goes towards buying weapons, vehicles, rackets and businesses, and drugs, which then cane be used to improve your stories and earn money. Better stories mean more money.

We hope you’ll take part in the fun
Yours Truly

Rules
1. Read through the rules carefully before asking to join.
2. Your stories should be typed up in Microsoft Word, or an equivalent programme, and the spelling and grammar should be checked first.
3. Do not post incomplete stories. Whilst length isn't mandatory, it should include a fully-formed idea which runs throughout the piece.
4. Flaming is strictly against the rules, as is non-BUYG related conversation. However, you can discuss your stories as well as others, ideas for the thread, and requests for purchases and sales.
5. Double-posting is against the rules too. If you want to add something, then edit your original post. It is only allowed if the topic has been inactive for a while.
6. If any of these rules are consistently broken, then we reserve the right to ban you from all BUYG topics. If you still post in the topic, whether it be under the same or a new account, we will request for you to be banned by from the forums by a moderator.
7. If you have 5 stories writen for BUYG IV you can use that story count to switch gangs here.
Guidelines
Each gang starts out with $100, a basic melee weapon, and two vehicles. The second vehicle is listed in red, and will only be available for use once a total of twenty stories have been written for that gang.
When you write stories, you may not use weapons and vehicles that your gang does not own. You have to buy them first. If you want to sell anything (weapons, vehicles, rackets and businesses) then you get half the value you paid for them.
The BUYG account acts as law enforcement officials. Confiscations occur every Saturday, and are selected using a random generator. Weapons, vehicles, drugs and rackets and businesses are vulnerable to being confiscated.
Money from our Rackets and Businesses scheme will be distributed every Sunday.
If an entire gang becomes inactive after a month without notice beforehand, all money-making schemes will be frozen. They will resume once the gang becomes active again.
The BUYG staff will PM you if you have been inactive for a significant amount of time asking for you to post in the topic within the week, if you do not, then you will be wiped from the tables.
If you decide that you want to switch gangs, then your story count so far is bracketed. Each new story you write is added to the bracketed number, as well as starting afresh with an unbracketed number. The bracketed number is used for multiple of five bonuses. The unbracketed number is used for other rewards, such as weapons and vehicles, as well as unlocking the bonus vehicles for your gang.
If you wish to expand, then you must buy property off of other gangs. You may only purchase property if it’s unoccupied. If the gang has an active member writing, only under a different property, then you must have their consent. If you’re buying a property which is in a city where your gang is already established, then it’ll cost $300. If you wish to expand to another city, it’ll cost $600.
You can reach us via PM...Build Up Your Gang account - PM us with any queries!

Rackets and Businesses
Rackets and businesses are here to help your gang earn money. Rackets are the illegal side of things, whilst businesses are on the right side of the law. Since both are under gang-influence and bring money to an illegal organisation, the government authorities will confiscate them if they ever discover them.

There are two parts to a racket or a business. They are the building itself and its asset, which brings in the money. Each racket or business costs an initial fixed price. One asset for that racket or business can be purchased for 25% of the cost of the racket or business. Take the Brothel as an example; it costs $1800 for the building and their assets are Whores, which cost $450 each. Upon purchasing a racket or business, you get one free asset. If you want to buy another asset for that racket or business, it’ll cost you a quarter of the building price. You can have a maximum of five assets for each racket or business. If you ever want to earn more from your racket or business, then you have to buy another building. Only three racket or businesses can be owned by a gang at one time.

The profits from rackets and businesses can be huge, and the benefits for your gang are endless. The buildings themselves don't earn any money; it is the assets that are the earners. Each asset brings in 10% of its cost a week. For example, if you have a Brothel with three Whores then you’ll bring in $135 a week from them since they cost $450 each and bring in $45 weekly by themselves. The money from the rackets and businesses will be distributed every Sunday. Once you purchase a racket or business and it's accompanying asset, they will be listed in their own box. The weekly income generated from each type of asset is listed in brackets after the name of the asset.

As the prices of the buildings increase, each racket/business comes with an "edge": The ones listed in bold have cheaper building prices, the ones listed in italics have cheaper asset prices, while the ones listed in yellow generate more money per asset. You'll see some of the more expensive rackets/businesses have more than one of these edges, and are either listed in bold italics, bold yellow , or italics yellow .

Drug Rules
1. Once your hand is in the drug trade, only then will problems arise for your gang with the Feds.
2. It is required that you write a story about purchasing the drugs, and another story about selling the drugs.
3. The BUYG staff will act like the DEA, FBI and the Police by confiscating drugs, money, weapons, vehicles and assets at any time. These are done randomly.
4. The money you earn is added to the gang bank account, where you may buy weapons, vehicals, properties, and other assets.
5. The drugs system is not to be taken advantage of. Do not consistently buy and sell in increasing amounts.

GANG WARS
Reward: $500
Gang Wars in BUYG are not only a way to add excitement and realism to your story, but are an interesting way to make money. Set over the course of three stories, gang wars can be face-offs between writers, and the best will win.
Rules
• To declare war on another gang, one player must challenge another from a different gang. If they accept, the Gang War begins.
• Both gangs must post three stories, detailing the beginning, middle and end of the Gang War.
• Any possessions destroyed by the winning gang will be removed from the losing gang's inventory.
•The victor will be decided by a BUYG Judge who will read and rate all six stories before coming to an decision.

OK good to see it up & running again. But there are the Diablos missing in the gangs list. They were a candidate for me to join. Also how does the empire setting/business & rackets work? Do I have to get the money and then can buy one of the businesses and will it bring money weekly/daily/monthly/whatever to my account?


Plus I've thought that there can be a BUYG for "wiped out" gangs... how about that? I know I haven't gotten over that but one for them specifically would own!

Stuff needing to be updated: SentinelXS joined the Vercetti's at Sunshine Autos, marlord911 said he's moving to the Grove's at Emmet's (I think) and Trouble writes for Sweet's House not Johnson House.

There is some other stuff to correct and such but are all the inactive gangs set from default?

Plus why is DogOfHavoc removed from the Russian's?

Read the introduction at the start of the foruth post, everything you're asking about is there.

No, that'd be all of... five gangs or something? Pointless.

There are quite a lot of wiped out gangs, not five, but not as much as we have here, though as much as there is in the IV version. Other problems are minor stuff like adding [ / color] for Los Santos Vagos' name on their table and such.

I'll give the guide about businesses a read now.

Also the Varrio Los Aztecas lack a bonus vehicle.

The gangs that were omitted were so for a reason, namely because they may have been inactive at the time of revamping. If this isn't the case, then I'll talk to Jacky Fiend or any member of BUYG staff regarding the issue.

I think he means inactive gangs as in they died out on GTA, such as the Diaz Gang, Mendez Cartel, Vance Crime Family. Can't think of any others.

Fixed everything pointed out, also added a bit about selling weapons, vehicles, rackets and businesses.

Gang war rules are being discussed a lot, and we're busy nailing out a new structure to the whole thing.

Yeah flesh, Do you have any idea how confusing that coding can get? I have to deal with A Little bit and I F*ck sh*t up. Adding color and getting rid of extra [tr]'s or [td]'s is a hell of a lot harder than you think

Okay, so more changes needed:

- Adding Yardies
- WelcomeToLibertyCity @ Leones, Chiliad Hideout
- marland911 @ Groves, Wang Cars
- Differentiating the color-codes of the LC and SF Triads (any suggestions?)
- Don't the SF Triads carry AK47's?

Sorry, I was trying to get the topic back up and running as soon as possible. I'll add the Yardies in now. As for the Triads, I was thinking grey for the SF Triads (like the suits they wear in-game) and pale blue for LC Triads (like their boiler suits). What do you think?

Also, the Triads do carry AK-47's, but that would be a bit unfair giving a gang such a powerful weapon to start off with.

The Yardies have been added back. Sorry for that Skimask101.

The Triads were split into two gangs, therefore they count as two separate, new gangs. Each new gang starts off with two basic weapons, two cars and $100.

Here's my first story in a long time, and the first of this thread too! It's my 12th Vagos story, I think. I'll be purchasing an ounce of heroin, worth $870. Enjoy!

---

Los Santos Vagos
Long Way Home


“Over to James Holden on our Crime Desk.”
“Thanks George,” the reporter said. “Behind me is what, just hours ago, was a drugs-producing warehouse."
He motioned to the building behind him and continued, “In the early hours of this morning, the Police C.R.A.S.H division raided the warehouse,” he paused for effect. “We’ve got Officer Briggs of the division to tell us about the events.”
“Hello,” he said through his thick moustache.
“So Officer Briggs, who owned the warehouse?” James Holden asked.
“Well, after months of investigations,” Briggs began, subconsciously clasping at his badge. “We discovered that Koreans were using this warehouse as a production line for marijuana and crystal meth.”

I took another draw from my joint and relaxed. Our sh*t with the Koreans over, and now, crowded around the dusty television set, the other eses and I were celebrating. Not only had the Koreans been arrested, it was Jorge’s first day back at home. The Ballas had put him in a pretty bad state, with his skin red raw and peeled back after being set on fire. After many skin grafts in Jefferson Hospital Burns Centre, his skin was almost back to its old self, although was still repairing. I handed the blunt over to Santiago and he took a long draw, letting the smoke swirl around his lungs for a while before it poured out of his mouth.

“Fancy going for some pizza later?” he asked through the haze.
“Yeah sure,” Andres replied. “Go to the Alhambra afterwards too for a few drink.”
“We’ve got some guy coming round to sell us some smack first,” Raul told us. “Should be here later.”

We all agreed and I headed to my room for a nap. After an hour or so, with my head cleared, I emerged from my room. The sun was sitting firmly in the sky as I opened the sliding patio doors, casting an orange glow over the grass outside. Santiago lay sprawled across a garden chair, eyes closed and a beer bottle hanging loosely from his fingers. I walked over to the picnic table, an acquisition from a local diner, and took a seat by Raul Alvarez the hulking, alpha-male who was the closest thing to a leader that we had. He was deep in conversation with Andres and Jorge about how we the Vagos were about to be on the up again.

“We might have beaten them Ballas down,” he was saying. “But Grove Street are the real problem, they’re the ones we should be f*ckin’ with holmes.”
“Yeah, I know what you mean vato,” Andres agreed. “But we need to start small. GSF got too many guys, I think we should try split ‘em up again and attack Seville.”
“Good idea,” Raul nodded his head and took a swig of beer.

There was a knock at the garden gate and, after Santiago’s approval, a man shuffled through. Tall and black, he made his way across the patio to greet us with a slap on the back and some handshakes. He took a seat and dug inside the pocket of his hoodie.

“It’s all here,” he muttered and threw down a compact bag of coarse, brown powder, which looked like sand almost. “You got the money.”
Raul reached inside his pocket and retrieved his own air-sealed bag, “$870, right?”
“That’s the one,” the dealer said and edged his bag over the table, receiving the money in return. “Good to see you again Raul, and friends.” He nodded at us.
“Yep, we should hang out some more sometime,” Raul told him. “Just give me a ring sometime.”

With that, he got up and shuffled away. It was as quick and simple as that, a not-even five minute visit and he’d made a nice sum of money, and we’d acquired an ounce of heroin.

“So, what time are we heading out?” I said, stirring us all from money-making dreams.
“sh*t, didn’t notice it was so late,” Raul said, looking at the clock inside. “We best all get showered and ready.”

Forty five minutes later, we were all gathered around the doorway. I stuffed a fifty or so dollars into my wallet and tucked it into my jeans, before ruffling my scraggly hair. My shirt, which I had quickly ironed, lay on top of a white vest, with a thick silver chain hanging from my neck. Together, we stepped out into the humid Los Santos night, and set off for a bite to eat first. Twenty minutes later we were stood inside Well Stacked Pizza in Idlewood, waiting for the employee to hand us our boxes of greasy food. We got three pizzas to share between the five of us, each of which was devoured within minutes. Getting up, I brushed some crumbs off of my jeans and followed Raul out of the restaurant.

A further twenty minutes later, and we were just passing the petrol station in Idlewood, not far away from the Alhambra. I retrieved some identification from my wallet, ready to show to the doormen. As we rounded the corner, the queue was fairly small and not long after joining it, we were face to face with the bouncers. One of them, a rotund white man with a shaven head and a goatee, reached out his hand. I obligingly placed my identification in his palm and, after a few seconds of studying it, he handed it back to me.

The music pounded through my ears, shaking every nerve in my body. I turned round and smiled at Jorge, flashing the thumbs up to him too. This was the first time we’d been out to a club in the US, and it was going to be good. Andres got in the first round of Logger Beer, and we each took a long, refreshing gulp. We talked for a while away from the blaring speakers.

The club was beginning to fill up more now that it was nearing nine o’clock. A group of women crowded around the table next to me and, as I gazed at them, one of them smiled. I quickly looked away, embarrassed that I’d been caught looking and, now nervous, lifted my eyes to look again. There she was smiling away at me still as she chatted to her friends. She was Latina, and had smooth black hair which flowed down to her shoulders and outlined her low-cut dress.

“Go for it vato!” Santi egged me on.

Downing the rest of my beer as Dutch courage, I made my way over to her and took a seat beside her. I introduced myself and asked for her name. Alicia. She flashed another white smile and we began chatting away to each other. Eventually, after buying her a drink, I asked her to dance and, with her leading me by the hand, I followed her to the dance floor. It was crowded, with countless men and women shuffling to the music. We joined in and got closer. A few songs went by and I asked her if she wanted another drink. We went to the bar together and I put our order in, receiving a Logger Beer and Bacardi Breezer.

A shove knocked me to the floor, smashing the bottles into shards and sending their contents everywhere. Aching, I looked round to see who’d done it, sure that it was just an accident and he’d apologise, and that’d be that. I was confronted by a man, towering over me. He was also Mexican, and had a thin chinstrap beard, with a shaven head. His white shirt sat under a blue bandanna, which was tied loosely around his neck. He coughed up some phlegm and spat on my face. A crowd of people gathered round, encircling us in the commotion. Alicia looked stunned at the man and then rushed over between us.

“Hazer!” she wailed. “What the f*ck are you doing?”
“Shut the f*ck up puta! He said and roughly pushed her over as well.

I rose to my feet once again and took a swing at him, landing a solid punch in his jaw line. His face shook with the impact, but he countered straight away with a jab, which he landed square in my chest, winding me. I spluttered for a second and looked around hopelessly at the crowd around me. Santiago came barging through and yelled at Hazer, who was beginning to advance on me. He turned around, ready to land another swift blow to another man. The music blared and lights flashed, blinking and illuminating us all every few seconds. In the commotion and chaos, Santi rushed at my attacker. The lights blinked off before illuminating the resulting scene. Hazer stood, doubled over and spluttering. He clenched at his stomach, from where blood seeped out. Santiago stood there, knife in hand, over him with a shocked yet determined look upon his face.

The club erupted into full scale chaos and, in the ensuing pandemonium, Santiago and I rushed through the crowds and out the fire exit, followed by Jorge, Andres and Raul. The bouncers, noticing our desperate escape, gave chase. Mostly overweight, they were no match for us, but soon Hazer’s Azteca friends joined the chase. We rushed across the road, angered motorists pounding at their horns as we missed their cars by inches. Noticing the anarchy unfolding before him, a Police car’s siren moaned into life and joined the pursuit.

“Split!” yelled Jorge, and we all ran in separate directions.

I scaled a knee-high fence and continued across a garden at blistering pace. Andres ran just beside me, before jumping over a hedge and turning right. Sweat poured from my face and smothered my brow; my breathing was becoming deeper and increasingly desperate. I hopped another low fence and landed in someone’s front garden. My arms in a tired mess, I struggled to free myself from my expensive shirt. It was only a day old, but it could also link me to the scene, so I dumped it behind a wall. A siren sounded to my right and I dashed across the garden, behind the house, and leapt over another fence. It was going to be a dangerous trek home.

---

Jesus Christ! That was only supposed to be a small piece to get me back in the BUYG writing mood, but I got a bit carried away with myself.

An ounce of heroin purchased there for $870.

@skimask: Haha, I'm sure we all sucked at writing when we first joined BUYG (speaking for myself, at least!). It's good to see it improves people's writing skills, as is the case with you.

The Yakuza at Hyaku Dojo
Chapter Nine: Tropical Goods

Smoke unfurled from Hajime's pursed lips as he took another draw from his slowly burning cigarette. The light grey smog drifted into the cold night air and disappeared into the never-ending darkness. Tapping the end of the tar stick with his finger impatiently, Hajime sent burning embers floating towards the floor, dying out before they have a chance to scorch the icy concrete beneath his feet.

He looked out over the empty seas surrounding Liberty City in search of his supplier. The bright moonlight danced on the shallow waves that rolled against the well-defined coastline, glistening in the darkness and almost blinding Hajime. Leaning of the front of his Yakuza Stinger, the mobster chucked his cigarette to the floor and put it out with the ball of his foot before returning his attention to the calm ocean before him.

His eyes were met with the promising image of a murky figure appearing out of the night. Hajime pushed himself away from the Stinger and stood firmly on both feet. He signaled to his men and they surrounded his with Mac-10's and tattoos on display. Hajime stood at the front of the flock, leading his herd into possible danger. Their last drug deal didn't go down so well, Hajime did not have high hopes for this one.

The moonlight caught the Reefer, illuminating it and making it's presence known to everyone on land. It creeped towards Liberty City at a gentle pace, the sound of the waves hitting the front of the ship echoing throughout the empty dock. As it approached a signal light was lit from the deck of the vessel. Hajime nodded at his soldier who returned a similar beam of light, confirming the two parties were both in cooperation.

Hitting the shore several minutes later, the crew of the Reefer fastened the ship to pier before stepping foot onto the rickety wooden structure. Hajime sent his men in first, as cannon-fodder. After a few moments when he noticed a retained silence throughout, he made his way towards the dealers himself. He picked up the briefcase from beside his Stinger and made his way slowly to the vessel.

"Greetings Hajime," the dealer said in their native Japanese.

Hajime bowed politely as he returned the warm welcome to his new associate. "I assume everything is where it's needed?" He, himself, spoke in a thick Japanese tongue incomprehensible to all but those who talked the language fluently.

"Of course Hajime-san, we would never let you down!" responded the dealer, his dialect suddenly changing to a congregation of broken English words.

"That's what my last client said, and you already know what happened to them," Hajime scowled. Asserting himself and making sure that this new dealer would know what would happen if he messed with him.

The dealer chuckled nervously, trying to break the tension. He barked out a few words in Japanese to his crew mate who scurried around onboard the ship. Returning a few minutes later he threw a briefcase over the edge and into the captain's hands. He smiled as he extended it towards Hajime.

"Four grams of pure crystal meth, just like you ordered," his grin was crooked and filled with black spots where teeth once were. As much as Hajime could not bear this man and his lack of respect for himself; let alone those who were forced to bear witness to his toothless grin, he needed him to supply his with Crystal Meth from Hawaii. The Yakuza were very powerful in Hawaii, and they supplied the Kasen Clan here in Liberty with everything they needed; at a price.

Hajime handed over the briefcase as he took the other one in his hand. Both parties opened their cases and checked over the contents. When both were happy with what they'd been given they went their separate ways.

Returning to his Yakuza Stinger with the rest of his men, Hajime opened the door and landed himself behind the steering wheel. Taking a few moments to make himself comfortable his preparations were cut short by the sound of wailing sirens in the air.

"sh*t! They must of known about the deal!" one of the Yakuza men blurted out.

"Don't worry your pretty little heads," Hajime smirked. He slammed the vehicle into reverse and pulled hard on the steering wheel causing the car to go into a full back wheel spin and pointing them straight back out onto the road from whence they came. Knocking it back into gear, he thrust his foot down on the accelerator and skidded off into the distance. Preparing himself to outrun the police if the need arrived.

The Yakuza purchase 4 grams of Meth for $400.

A great story mate, I enjoyed reading it, however there were some things which I would write differently, and there were a few tiny errors. Nonetheless, good job.

Again, another fantastic story. I don't think I saw anything wrong with that, and it's a pity that I've never read any of your work in the past. Brilliant.

Grove Street Families - San Fierro Wang Cars
Chapter 1:
"An Interrupted Arrival"

"Are we there yet, bro?"

"Just a while, we'll be on the freeway soon, so about a half hour to go," replied the driver.

It had been the longest drive of my life. We had quit Los Santos from Santa Maria, and after that, it had been nothing but bland images of countryside. I had dozed off a bit, and now that I woke up, I was dying to get the the destination as soon as possible. I turned my head and saw that Lil' Shark and Tony, the other two OG's were both asleep, their mouths lined with drips of saliva. Behind our car, the headlights of the other two cars in the convoy shone brightly in my face, and I quickly turned back to face the driver. "Say, CJ, what's so important out here in this Fierro town?"

"Didn't you catch the meeting? Sweet told the all of us. We need dependable OG's out here to protect a car dealership I acquired a few years back. It's in the heart of rival gang territory, and we gotta hold on to it," explained CJ, the wizened Grove Street veteran. CJ was the oligarch of the Grove; he and his older brother Sweet controlled the gang.

I was just about to reply when our car came to a grinding halt. Both gang members in the back woke up with a jolt, and I immediately looked out the window. With the San Fierro city lights as a backdrop, there stood a redneck old man, standing in front of his dilapidated pickup truck, which was wedged horizontally in front of our car. The redneck seemed to be carrying something, but I couldn't tell what it was.

All of a sudden, a resounding bang was heard and vibrations shuddered through the car. In the car mirror, I could see the confused face of the driver of the car behind us. I gave him an "OK" signal, telling him that there was nothing to worry about. Then, without hesitation, I clicked open the glove compartment and grabbed the machine pistol that lay serenely in a pile of women's fitness magazines. Then, confidently, I pulled the door handle and stepped out of the car.

"What the f*ck you think you doing?" I pointed my gun at the old redneck, and in the glare of the pickup truck's headlights, I discovered that the man was holding a baseball bat, and that he had been pounding our car the whole time. "Stop that crazy sh*t right now, old man, or I'll shoot."

The old man didn't seem to hear. He went on pounding on our car. CJ seemed to get annoyed inside the car, and he nodded towards me. I stepped forward, grabbed the old man by the neck. "Let go of me, you dumb bastard!" the old man exclaimed. I felt sympathy for the lunatic, but when he raised his bat and brought it down towards my head, I thrusted my arm, holding the machine pistol, in a sideways motion, and cracked the butt of the pistol against the man's jaw. The man's eyes flickered, and I saw fire and ice dancing in his bewildered eyes, before a resounding crack was heard and the man lost consciousness. With my momentum, I carried him to prevent him falling to the ground, and shoved him back into his still-open car door. A minute later, we were continuing our journey, the three cars in a single file formation, headed for San Fierro. Inside my car, CJ remarked, "I liked how you handled that situation there, Bomber. Don't let me down in San Fierro."

We got off the freeway five minutes later, and stopped at a traffic light. While waiting, CJ explained some of the nearby locations while the rest of the car listened intently. "This here's the driving school," he said, glancing at an enclosed compound to the left. "And this old lot used to be a drug factory. It was blown up in 1992," CJ took a deep breath, "by me."

We all gasped. It was common knowledge that CJ was capable of great things, but destroying an entire drug complex; we never would've dreamed. As the green traffic light flickered on, CJ continued driving. "This here's a fire station. And this," he said, pointing to a garage-style lot, "this was my residence when I was around San Fierro. I drop by here regularly, so you might see me around sometime. Cesar's around here often as well, so you'll see him around." I smiled as I remembered Cesar - he was the leader of the Varrio Los Aztecas, a Mexican gang whom we were closely allied with.

"This is the place," CJ said as he parked on the side of the road. To our right, there was a large two-storey building with a neon sign that read 'Wang Cars'. CJ got out of the car, followed by me and Lil' Shark and Tony. The OG's in the other cars got out too, admiring the building that was to be their home in the near future. CJ raised his arms and called all the Grove members to the tarmac of the lot.

"You down for this, Lil' Shark? Shades, you down? Beans, how about you?"

A disjointed chant of "Yeah!" came from Lil' Shark, as well as the two gang members named Shades and Beans.

"How about you, Big Rimbo? You all know what yo' task here is?"

Big Rimbo, the largest gang member in our small group, nodded. "We here to protect the place from rival gangstas, as well as help with the dealings."

"Correct. Y'all got that? Bomber? Ya got that? Good. We got a few bucket-ass cars in the back; it's not much but it should be fine. There's also a dune buggy and a few bikes too, if y'all ever need them. But remember, this is all for the hood, a'ight? If me and Sweet think y'all slackin' off here in Fierro, it's back to the Grove you go. Y'all got that?"

After another broken series of agreements, CJ gave us all a look of 'good luck' and hopped into the Glendale that was still parked on the sidewalk. The headlights powered on and the car sped off, leaving the ten of us Grove OG's standing in the darkness.

Being CJ's most entrusted friend and mentee, I began dishing out orders. "Big Rimbo and Shades, you two go park the other two cars away. Tony and Beans, get to the garage and tell the workers there we've arrived. The rest of y'all, come with me, we're going to check out the showroom."

Good to see this back up in the place. I will decide my gang (FINALLY) after thinking a little, lol. Also mark, I'm pretty sure that's the case with me - I sucked to no good and I may still.

Sweet! Adoring the revamp, guys! icon14.gif

The new rules, weapons, and added 'rackets and businesses' is inspiring me out of my writer's block. With the recent, greatly written stories from regulars, (Marky, Jacky, Marlordy..) I'm even more fueled.

I'm still associated with The Haitians. But I saw on the last BUYG, that it was best to set the story at a current timeline in order to abrupt confusion? (If you read any of mines, you'll know they were set pre-Vice City and VCS)


Expect a story out from me in a few days.

I have looked around and none are of my preference choice but I'll pick the Diablos at Hepburn Heights.

My talk about the rules I broke on the last topic.

1. The front page said that Trouble was at Johnson's House, now fixed on the new topic. I wasn't informed.
2. The rules are clear - Don't use stuff your gang don't own - this is why I nearly bought the Securicar.

But first talk to your fellow writers for the same gang about buying something. You just came out of nowhere, posting a story about a bank heist and bought something that costs the whole gangs money, unless the other writers for that gang agree you shouldn't waste the money on this.
