| Also how about All In The Game, man?|
progress report: two missions away from finishing my Vietnam convept so work on All In The Game will start again soon. also got next week off work so between learning to drive I'm gonna grind away at the Nam concept then start work on AITG again.
I'm piecing together the resolution from the climax, in order of events.
Papi is sprung from LCPD custody and owes favours left right and centre:
LCPD LT claims to have had a hand in getting Papi off the hook and forces him into taking over territory in Broker to raise their crime rate to make the Bohan district look better, the LT would rather a controllable gang holds turf there, rather than some jumped up corner kids. Papi also aids the Bubbles-type cigarette vendor in ridding his block of drug dealers, stating that morally, 'Bubs' would rather a legal drug be on the streets with no violence than crack and heroin being pushed in his hood, thus increasing likelihood of violent conduct. Result being that Papi runs Broker with some corners to deal on and gets a safe haven within Broker's homeless community. however, one rogue Vice Detective threatens to ruin the entire show.
Saint claims to have played a part helping Papi, and needs his help in return. Saint has set Liz up into a trap (Shifting Weight) and also played Devar into trying to jack the deal as shown. Saint wants Papi to jump Devar but when the pigs show up the job gets harder but completed in the end. result being that Fernando believes Papi squealled on Liz during his short time in exchange for immunity, leading to a turf war, fighting for control of Bohan. after Papi leads a raid on Fernando's strip club and kills him, Co Op meetings are now held in the Triangle Club and Papi has gained control of the whole of Bohan.
The Greeks also claim to have helped Papi, and to repay the favour they ask him to kill Joe Corrola. the hit is successful but Papi's outlived his usefullness to the Greeks and in unison with the LCPD LT, Papi foils the Greeks plot to kill him once he secures the product on a drug run, killing the Vice Detective and making off with the product in the process. with the cops all over the Greeks they decide to close up shop and open up elsewhere, leaving Papi's gang with control over Bohan and Broker and enough product to tide them over, they've truely won the game.
the end credits roll as a dedication to all of those who died in the line of fire on the streets, showing their death scenes from the first mission right up until the last kill.
as a side note; can anyone think of any decent puns on Baltimore, Maryland and its nickname, Bodymore, Murderland? I want to use Papi's gang as the NY Domincans mentioned frequently in the first few seasons of The Wire, as an ode to the game's rootes.
I found LT interesting and beyond-passionated. Also like the way you're trying to show Papi's "businessman" - "legit" side by involving him in a legal, less violent drug.@Jacky Fiend
Sounds like a great mafia story man, can't wait for it.
About my The Wire style San Andreas story, I ficted the beginning and also thought of some events:
Kane starts a street dealer in a small Front Yard Balla crew named "Entourage" (familiar style crew with D'Angelo Barksdale's "The Pit"). In the beginning, Kane and fellow dealers will be shown in patrolling drug sells on the streets. After too many arrests made on Front Yard Ballas set, Ballas' top men will suspect about a possible rat in the set, so they order Mohammad "Poot" Blanc, who is one of the top men in Front Yard set, with search the set for a possible snitch. When "The Homes" crew (which is a bit higher in the hierarchy than "Entourage") chief's ties with notorious Officer Tenpenny is learnt (crew chief is actually loyal homeboy but he gets threatened by his uncle, Tenpenny), both Ballas and Tenpenny (who is afraid of his nephew by thinking he knows too much) order an hit on the chief, Tenpenny's hit will end with success but this will bring suspects out ot the Ballas and this will lead the first meeting with Ballas and Tenpenny. Kane's crew chief Bulleye is promoted to crew chief position of "The Homes", also this leads Kane's promotion to the position of crew chief of "Entourage". Kane will be seen trying to run a crew, become crew of his chief but at the same friends of the crew dealers. However this search of Kane will get his head in trouble, even leads him to fall from grace; Kane helps a fellow dealer named Marlon "Marlo" Wallace who wants to leave the line of crime. This leads Kane's demotion of backing his street dealer days in a "border tricking" used crew of East Los Santos Front Yard Ballas which is at the same place in the hierarchy with "Entourage". Meanwhile Kane's former fellow dealers in "Entourage" Jordan "Pawn" Carter and Sean "Snoop" Farsdale kill their buddy Marlo and Pawn gets promoted to crew chief of "Entourage" meanwhile Snoop becomes his right hand man. Kane will be shown as caring and protective about him because he is afraid of his safety. When Kilo Tray Ballas need high amount of cooks, they use low-level members of their set but also take men from other sets. So Kane is sent to Kilo Tray Ballas' main den to cooking crack. There, Kane will meet Little Weasel who is a low-level member that is on the processes of production and distribution (acting as a croner kids, distributing little amounts of crack). After a while, Kane backs to his crew of East Los Santos setted Front Yard Ballas crew and the magnicifent war between Ballas and Vagos hit the fan. Ballas' second-in-command Omar Curtis "West" Simmons (Stringer Bell of the Ballas) offers Kane a deal; if Kane takes out his crew chief, he can get his position back. Kane kills his crew chief and shows it as a Vagos hit. Kane gets his position back, becomes the crew chief of that East Los Santos setted Front Yard Balla crew which is used as "border tricking" crew during Ballas-Vagos war and this use of his crew will lead the crew separated, many of his fellow dealers' death, some of his men turn against him. So Kane will rebel against West and other high ranking men. Some of the men think Kane must be killed and another man would replace with him, but meanwhile West thinks a way to make Kane happy, also West starts to make peace talks with Vagos throughout their connection with Vagos. And Big Poppa will be shown throughout these go-between meetings.
That's total for now.
