Liberty City is in flames; a car bomb in the underground garage of the CC-building has exploded and killed 16 people, including several important people of the CC. In a statement, made by Mayor Ochoa, he tells the public that the city is threatened by several Middle-eastern terrorist cells that are actively doing everything they can to create chaos in Liberty City and to demolish American society. Hatred and fear for Arabs grows quickly in LC and Broker resident Salim Nassar is growing tired of it. Salim came with his sister and pregnant mother to America and Liberty City over 20 years ago now, but his mother died several years ago, his sister has moved back to Syria to study Arabian and his LC-born younger brother Samir moved to San Andreas to become a movie star. There is nothing anymore to the city he ones loved, the city hates him and he it. So Salim decides to seek up his brother in San Andreas.

Characters

Characters (In order of appearance)

Salim Nassar, 26
Salim is a frustrated man, he’s hoping for a good life in San Andreas, but discovers that life in San Fierro isn’t as good as it might seem. He makes friends and enemies while trying to survive in America’s culture capital where artist die daily, and with acquaintances like these, things aren’t probable to be normal.
Samir Nassar, 24
Samir Nassar moved to San Andreas three years ago, pursuing the glamorous life, wanting to be a famous singer. So he went to the cultural city of San Fierro where all “real” artists live. However, his talents are limited, and things go a little differently, he does get into the showbiz world. The income from this type of work isn’t very steady though, and he finds a job as a valet at a hotel.

Map Unlocks

Because of terror cells being active in America, the government forbids Arabs and Muslims to enter or exit large urban areas that are considered possible targets of terrorists. The streets are watched by the police, their order is to shoot at sight of trespass, and any suspicious air-traffic, in these areas, is shot down by the military. Although it is alright to travel between San Fierro and Woodland because the Governor of San Andreas “don’t think even a terrorist would go to Woodland”. San Alcala is unlocked after ¼ of the story because of the Governor’s statement “Isn’t that a part of Mexico? If terrorists want to leave, let them. And if any terrorists try to go through Mexico to America, they’ll be taken down by the swine flu before they get here”. After half of the story the terrorist threat is reduced and the cities open up again for Arabs and Muslims, this unlocks Los Santos. But Las Venturas is inaccessible until ¾ of the story because the Mayor of LV “just don’t want them towel-heads here”, finally the government forces the metro area of Las Venturas to open up for everyone again.

I've updated a couple of the radio stations. I'm working on a lot of material at the moment and should be adding quite a big update later.

Nice but may i add the Mafia don't hold a place in Las vegas anymore, or if they do ever-so slightly, same with the russians they operate more in Florida and New York, same with the mafia.

In the 1980's they did but not anymore. (Watch Casino)

Yeah I did a bit of research about that, I'm thinking of having the Yakuza as the main gang and focus on them. I need a bit of help for writing up about the gangs, would you like to help?

@AnthMUFC-Champs, thanks, hopefully when I've got the topic sorted and it all starts coming together as planned I'll get some replies. I had to repost this concept because I ran out of image space.

You wanted a little bit of advice ( I cant Help you much right now busy tounge.gif )

I would focus more on Bloods, Crips and The Mexican and El Salvadorian street gangs such as 18th street gang and MS-13, then focus on triads in San fierro (yacuza dont operate that much anymore in SF) and Las vegas beleive it or not hardley has any crime at all anymore. It might have a few mobsters working in the casino's but i highly dought criminal activity there now is high. It used to be in 1980's.

Actually, I don't think people should care too much about the crime rates of the real cities. The cities are based on real cities, but they're still fiction, so the crime doesn't really have to be like in reality.

As nerdy as it sounds, I went to the library and researched some of this stuff. Yakuza do in fact have a huge faction in San Fran and thats why I'm looking to focus on them. But thanks for the advice, I'll take it into account and pass it on to SirPsychoSexy who is writing the story. We are trying to get the correct balance between fiction and reality in the story.

You did it! People might not replying much to this topic because they're stuck with Vice City.
And they're be still stuck with this city no matter even if the city itself became dust.

Anyway, I have a suggestion. The map needs to have the city names.
And, give them access to VC or they'll be still stuck with other works.

Verdant Meadows?

Thanks for the feedback, I'm working on a more detailed version of the map so I'll add the names. And thanks for reminding me about Verdent Meadows, I'd completely forgot, I'll add that in.

Where's LV airport? Also, the real-life San Diego do have an airport.

Just Google "San Diego International", and that's it.

I know San Diego has an airport, I've to there but this doesn't have to be 100% correct geographically. IV wasn't, places like the Yankees Stadium, Staten Island, Madison Square Garden and LeGuardia Airport weren't included in LC.

Okay, This is THE BEST chance for a game. icon14.gif icon14.gif
I love it all except, It may not be the right time for a middle eastern charcter. Even though the entire story for why the map is San Andreas revolves around that I have an idea.
The Main character could be an Italian man who wants to regain the Italian Mafia back to LV.
Samir Nassar could be someone he knew back in broker and now decided to be a singer.

The reason the borders are closed? State and Federal law enforcement along with DHS have locked the border due to: the attacks on LC, gang population in LS, Drugs in SF, Gambling in LV, and im not sure about San Alcala but you get the idea, So in order to re open the borders things must settle down. (Ie. reduce the crime rate in LS ect...)

I really hope you dont think i am stereotyping against Middle eastern people but its just too close to home after 9/11 and other attacks and terrorism.

Really like what you have done so far though. smile.gif smile.gif

I understand what you mean by too close to home after 9/11, but I'm not trying to cause any offense. The reason for having an Asian protagonist is because its something that hasn't been done in GTA yet and me and SirPsychoSexy wanted to carry on the theme of the American Dream, only this time the viewpoint would be from someone who had an established life taken from them and they're having rebuild.

Thanks for the feedback icon14.gif
