This topic is replacing my GTA: Carcer City thread, although the content is the same. I needed to make a few major changes.
So you're looking at this thread. Right now you're probably wondering a few things. For example:
I saw other people making fanfic threads about the next GTA, so I thought, why not/ And I made this topic.
-Why did you choose a location like detroit/chicago?
I saw how many VC and SA topics there are, and hoping to be original, decided on a different unused region of America. It is also a region ripe with history and crime, both on an organized and street level.
-Why did you choose a black protagonist?
Wel, I didn't like the fact that GTA San Andreas had started with a gang scene, but failed to elaborate on it..
Note- This topic is not done, i am still working on it. Any help or feedback is welcome!

Theme Song: Grand Theft Auto: Huron State Theme Song
Intro:You start off in Venteux, it city based on Chicago, Il. It is currently suffering from gang problems, which have escalated over the years.
Jamal Cambridge is an African American male. Born on September 5, 1985 to a single mother of 6, Jamal was always the man of the house, as he was the oldest of his mother , Sandra’s 4 sons. When Jamal was 8, he witnessed his sister Jennifer get raped by unknown males, although they looked familiar. His brother, Malcolm, was became a heroin addict at the age of 13. Subsequently, he was killed in a failed robbery after attempting to steal his dealer’s cocaine. Jamal’s sister, Keisha, is a prostitute.
Jamal began selling weed at the age of 12 to support is struggling mother, although he claimed to have a job at a local bodega. At the age of 15, he was arrested after being caught in school with 6 oz. of cocaine in a sneaker. After the incident, Jamal became a full time drug dealer, rarely attending school, although he did manage to make it until 11th grade. After dropping out of school, Jamal continued selling drugs until he was arrested for murder after shooting a rival drug dealer to death over a dispute. However, the case was dropped due to the fact that the victim had allegedly fired shots at Jamal at the time of the murder, thus Jamal was set free. Over the next three years, Jamal committed two more murders; both over dug related disputes, but was never caught.
In 2004, Jamal met Dwight ‘D-money” Taylor, an affiliate of the notorious “Dusty” Marvin Phillips, at a night club. White was later introduced to Dusty, who began to supply him with drugs. But in 2006, Phillips was shot 4 times after leaving a night club, sending him permanently into hiding, and allowing other affiliates of Phillips to take over his gang set, the Lonsdale Courts Crew, a subset of the notorious 7th Street Hustlers gang. The gang fell into total chaos, allowing many members to be arrested and killed. During this time period, Cambridge was shot 3 times during a shootout with a group of rival gang members at a nightclub. He was later arrested on weapons charges, after he allegedly fired an Uzi into the air at a passing patrol car. The charges were eventually dropped due to lack of evidence.
After his release, Cambridge began to focus more on his drug dealing affairs. He also began to feel an increasing urge for more power.
In 2007, the Black Kings took a major blow, when police raided the Lonsdale Courts projects, in search of drugs. Fifteen members of the gang were indicted, including one of the high ranking governors of the Lonsdale Courts set, Demetrius “Heavy D” Jenkins. Many members, including Jamal, were forced to stop selling drugs for a time in the area. This resulted in rival gangs attempting to take over turf previously ruled by the Hustlers. Eventually, the police pressure subsided, as did the gang violence. Jamal continued selling drugs under the 7th Street Alliance, until March, 2007. Again, Jamal was arrested and charged for Possession Controlled Substance: Marijuana. He was subsequently sentenced to 3 years in prison. Upon Jamal's release, he decides to return to drug dealing yet again, unable to learn from past mistakes. This is where the game starts.
Drug Dealing player can obtain a variety of drugs. drugs include
•Weed- can be smoked. weed causes the player to react slower, as well as to act out randomly, completly out of the players control(this happens only if too much weed is smoked)
•coke- can only be sold
•crack- can only be sold
•meth- can only be sold
•ecstasy- can be taken as pills. upon use, the gameplay speed increase
•sherm- a weed blunt dipped in pcp, causes the player to randomly have hallucinations while high.
•heroin- can only be sold.
Drugs can be purchased from various gangs in large amounts, then sold by the player. Gangs can also be robbed for drugs, but this will cause them to retaliate against you.
Robbery there are three types of robbery missions: house, store, and bank. all robberies can be escaped without a wanted level.
House Requires a firearm, and a van or truck.
Player has the ability to either sneak into a house through a side or back window; or burst through the door and alarm all occupants- this method will attract a 2 star wanted level. When robbing a house, player must enter between 20:00 and 6:00, like in san andreas. the player has the option to pick up any items of value and bring them back to the vehicle. the player also has the option to search the house for money or a safe(many house will have a safe, because the city is very dangerous). The third option is simply to wake the occupants and demand money
Store Requires a firearm. Optional- player can be accompanied by up to 3 friends or gang members, but player will have to split the money amongst them.
Player walks into any accessible store or restaurant, and points a gun at the clerk, demanding money. The player can choose to calmly demand the money, which will result in a less likely chance of police being called. player can also forcibly demand money, resulting in a higher possibility or the clerk alerting police, as well as the chance of other customers in the store calling police. Customers can be robbed throughout the store. if the player does not leave the store within 6 ingame hours(3 minutes), police will be alerted and a 3 star wanted level will be issued.
Bank Banks can now be robbed. will require a firearm. Smaller banks can be robbed alone, while larger banks require 2 or more accomplists.
In Huron State, there are multiple banks that can be robbed. If the player does not leave the bank within 6 ingame hours(3 minutes), the police will be alerted and a 4 star wanted level will be issued. larger banks will also have armed guards, so it is advised that you kill them first. After entering the bank, the player walks up to the counter and demands money from the clerk. if the clerk does not cooperate, the player has the option to pistol whip them until they comply. the player then leads the clerk to the safe, where the clerk will empty out the money into a backpack. the player then exits the bank.
Jamal is part of the gang, "the 7th Street Hustlers", which is primarily a drug gang. Therefore, the player now has the ability to complete gang wars, similar to the gang wars of GTA: SA. During a gang war, the player must first kill 3 to 4 members of the opposing gang while on foot. An option will then appear onscreen for the player to start a gang war. If the player chooses yes, a number of enemies ranging from 3 to 5 will appear in a car. The player must kill the gang members and take whatever drugs they have onhand. Then another carload of gang members will appear, of whom you also must kill. After killing them, you must find the enemy strongholds, which will appear as blips on the map. There will be anything from 3-5 strongholds, which are usually abandoned houses or apartments that hold drugs and stolen items. The player must enter the strongholds and kill any enemy gang members inside, and again steal all of their drugs and money.

There are multiple clothing stores in Huron State that are accesible to Jamal.
|Binco||A clothing store with very cheap clothing, mostly consisting of gang and drug dealer attire.|
|SubUrban||Low to medium priced urban styled clothing. Contains gang attire as well as slightly higher quality clothing.|
|ProLaps||A sports related clothing store.|
|Zip||A clothing store that sells middle range clothing for moderate prices.|
|Victim||A clothing store selling upper middle range clothing. Prices are generally moderate.|
|Didier Sachs||A clothing store that sells upper range, more formal clothing, as well as suits and tuxedos.||P.A.(Player's Attire)||A store selling urban styled clothing at medium to high prices. Mostly consists of clothing intended for drug dealers, raappers, and athletes.[/tr]|
|Urban Headwear||An urban styled hat store. The franchise is known for selling gang colored hats, fitted caps, bandanas, and durags. The location in Carcer City is also suspected to front a marijuana dealing company from the basement.|
|Tha Bizness Jewelerz||A jewelry store that sells mostly urban and hip hop styled jewelry such as grillz, gold teeth, pendants, bracelets, and chains. Prces are upper moderate to high.|
|Contemporary Jewelers||A jewelry store that sells medium price jewelry. Quality is generally medium range. Also sells womens jewelry.|
The Huron State area is based on Detroit, Chicago, and parts of Indiana and Canada, as well as other areas of the Midwest. Therefore, seasons in the game will be very different. Seasons include winter, fall, summer, and spring. but instead of being 2 months apart, seasons will now be 2 ingame weeks apart. The player must dress Jamal accordingly. If it is winter, Jamal will lose health if dressed in summer attire, and if it is summer, Jamal will lose health if dressed in winter attire. However, the Seasons feature can be toggled on and off through controls in the pause menu. If the feature is turned off, it will always be summer in the game.
Because Jamal is an up and coming drug dealer/ businessman, the player has the opportunity to operate a number of illegal bussinesses throughout Huron State. Businesses include:
Prostitution(run through strip clubs)
The player has the option throughout the game to expand his drug running business. Earlier in the drug traffiking business, the player can take over abandoned houses to stash drugs in, as well as apartments and abandoned stores. As Jamal progresses through the drug traffiking business, the player gains the ability to purchase and take over abandoned factories and warehouses. These buildings , including houses, can be used for storage for drugs and weapons. The player can then sell thhe drugs to lower ranking dealers throughout the Hustlers and other street dealers for a profit.
Strip Clubs can also be purchased by Jamal. Strip clubs contain back rooms and basements, which can also be used for drug storage, as well as executions. Strippers in the clubs will feature more nudity, as strippers will get fully naked. Strip clubs will provide revenue from bars, strippers, and illegal fight clubs.
Prostitution is a business operated either as an independent business, or through strip clubs. In strip clubs, all strippers can be hired as prostitutes. However, unlike traditional stripping, prostitutes do not show nudity or intercourse. Instead, the customer(or Jamal), is led to a back room or bathroom where they will engage in sex. Sex itself cannot be seen, it is only heard outside of the confines of the room or bathroom stall.
Bars can be purchased. Bars provide revenue through payments based on how many people use the bar. The player can go to the bar for dates, as well as drinking games and outings with friends.
Clubs can be purchased. Jamal can go to the club on dates, as well as compete in dancing contests. Clubs provide revenue similar to bars.
There are multiple women throughout Huron State that Jamal can date. Dating involves Jamal taking his woman of choice to an outing(depending on what she likes), and making her happy. Dates generally require Jamal to buy the woman dinner or a drink. After satisfying his date, Jamal has the choice to either take her home or make a move. If you decide to take your date home, she will either simply go inside her house, or she may invite you in for sex. If you choose to simply have sex at the location of choice, an option to "make a move" appears on the screen. If yes is chosen, Jamal and his date walk to a back room or bathroom stall, where they will have sex. Again, you can only hear them having sex.
Dating is categorized into two categories. They are Girlfriends and Random Dates.
Generally, Jamal will go on dates with his girlfriends. Girlfriends will request that Jamal take them someplace that they enjoy, usually a bar or club. Girlfriends will occasionally ask for sex after a date, although it becomes increasingly common throughout a relationship.
Jamal will also have the option of going on random dates with women he meets at the bar/club/strip club. If the player is not seen with a date, a random date will always approach him. The woman will approach Jamal and ask him to buy her a drink. She may also begin giving Jamal a lapdance. Occasionally, random dates may simply offer Jamal a blowjob. The purpose if random dates is always to have sex, so after 2 ingame hours, if the player does not lead the girl to a room or car for sex, she will ask him again. An option to "make a move" with the girl will appear on the screen. If the player chooses no, the woman will simply walk off, and may be seen with other men or very rarely, women. But if the player chooses yes, a cutscene will begin where Jamal will lead the girl to a location for sex. The woman may also tell Jamal to "follow me", again indicating sex.
There are multiple myths in Huron State, including urban legend, mythical creatures, and strange findings. These include:
•Bigfoot- Although speculation may have led many to believe Bigfoot resides in San Andreas, there have been many sitings of Bigfoot in Huron, specifically in mountainous and woodland regions. Bigfoot is often very hard to find, as he may appear as a deformed tree. There are also alledged sitings of multiple large aelike creature in these areas, suggesting multiple "Bigfoot" lifeforms. However, it is unknown whether or not Bigfoot even exists.
•Aliens- There have been multiple alledged sights of UFO's, and even aliens, in Huron Stat, specifically on the westernmost island. The player will very rarely encounter these extraterrestrial beings, but may spot UFO's in the countryside.
More coming soon!
For the most part, gameplay will be the same as GTA IV. However, there will be some changes to the gameplay. A few changes include:
•trunks on cars are now accessible, and can be used to store items
•drugs can be stored in a packpack, which cannot be seen
•player can now switch cars without being seen to lose wanted level
•player can hide from police in wooded areas, water, abandoned buildings, and tall grass*
•police will now attempt to "chase" the player, rather than annihilate them
•cars can now be purchased
•explosions will now dismember pedestrians
•spray paint can be used to tag most walls
•dynamic fire returns
•small buildings can be burned to the ground, however, after one ingame day, they will respawn. Burning beings also gains a wanted level for each building destroyed
•car modding returns
•gang wars return, drug wars return
•cars can be parked in driveways, as well as returning garages
•animals and children appear, however, THEY CANNOT BE KILLED, OR HARMED
•cars can now fit up to 6 people, depending on the type of car. However, this is not advisable for missions
•destrutable environment- many smaller builings can be destroyed
•player can mug pedestrians
•Transfender returns, along with multiple other car modding shops**
*Abandoned houses like these are very common in Carcer City and Harry, and can provide cover not only in gunfights, but also in losing wanted levels. If the cops cannot see you, your wanted level will gradually deplete itself. They also, however, may serve to your disadvantage. There are whole streets full of abandoned houses with heavily overgrown plants, and enemies will hide behind them to prevent you from seeing them.
The player can also hide in many of these houses, as some do not have windows or doors. As a result, these houses are good for sniping and ambushes, which may also come as a disadvantage.
Players can also hide in growing wheat and corn, as there are many farms in Oneota County.
