5:00 am on a wednesday, the red eye flight from Los Santos California touches down on a slick runway at Francis International Airport, the runway lights playing across the windows like the ghosts I am running away from. I have been sitting here drunk for the past 4 hours, head in my hands replaying the previous nights events in my mind like a merry-go round operated by my own guilt and self loathing. How had It come to this? How had it Gotten so bad?
My little brother William lie in the basin of the Los Santos Storm Drain my hands pressed on the deep stab wound in his side. There was blood everywhere and he he struggled to breathe, the bubbling in his throat a sure sign of a deflated lung. I could see the sirens playing off the sides of the drain, red and blue. Coming to put me away for killing the man who stabbed Billy. "I have to go Billy, do you understand?" more bubbling as he tried to speak his breathing was getting faster more labored. he was crying. He knew what I was about to do. "I am so sorry. God forgive me.." Those were the last words I ever said to my brother. I wiped the finger prints off the gun and put it in my Baby brothers hand and stood up and walked away. I picked up the bag next to the dead body found the keys out in his pocket and took one last look at the man, an impossibly large pool of red jam collecting around his head. How had I called him my best friend?
20 minutes later I was in line at LSX boarding a flight to LC. I had a bag with 100,000 dollars in it, and a sentinal with a glock under the seat waiting in Long Term parking at Francis Intl. That plus my dads Sanitation business in Liberty City and the apartment on Savanah Ave should be enough for me to lay low and start rebuilding THEUNION.
WHAT IS THE UNION?
THEUNION is a semi roleplay gang in which all the members have a well thought out history for their character that makes sense to the GTA world and the GTAFORUMS gang universe which results in a more rewarding online multiplayer experience. THEUNION is planned to be mainly a GTAV gang claiming no turf in Liberty City other than a home apartment in Cerveza Heights across from meadows park, and two industrial business properties in Algonquin, Liberty City Sanitation and the neighboring plot RJ's hauling. I am first looking for 1 other forum member who would like to be part of the Gang as one of the three founding members. Until GTAV comes out you will have 1 vote and I will control my vote as well as the "NPC" controlling the LS union. This is so I can set up rules and operations of the gang before the release of GTAV where we will both pick a another player to become the third voting party where we will be able to actually vote on what the gang does. The only requirements for this position are that you live on the east coast and are 18 or older (preferably early 20's) and will be active on this thread.
Also although I will only be allowing several people into THEUNION members of other gangs interested in light roleplay are more than welcome to comment on this thread and play with us as a character, as in the world of THEUNION all the other GTAFORUMS gangs exist and are actively conducting business about the city. The only way THEUNION is going to earn big bucks is by Doing jobs with or for other gangs on the forums. We don't have a large member base so our associates actually members of other gangs whom we do business with. If THEUNION has to fight, hopefully we have made powerful allies in LC.
For instance, Right off the bat I am looking for a gang from LC that is planning to be active in GTAV and would like to play the role of the gang already set up and currently in a war with THEUNION in Los Santos. I am also looking for a Gang from LC that has no roots in Los Santos and needs an ally in the city to help them set up business there in the coming months. Although I am looking for an enemy it is not because I want to fight or prove anything it is merely for fun and to enhance the experience of being in the gang)
In roleplay terms...
The Union is a criminal organization originating on the west coast that has recently been thrown into chaos when their allies (BLANK UNTIL CLAIMED BY ANOTHER GANG) who were helping them transport and distribute small arms on the west coast, convinced one of the founding members to turncoat and betray one of the other founding members. The betrayal failed however and the turncoat was killed by the younger brother of a now missing founder. The remaining founder has entered into a bloody war with the (BLANK UNTIL CLAIMED BY ANOTHER GANG SAME AS ABOVE) as an act of retaliation for Billy O'Neill's murder. It is rumored that the missing founder is currently somewhere on the east coast attempting to find allies to replace the(reserved for enemy gang) as their main purchaser of small arms. Known for their brazen daylight robberies and high speed car chases THEUNION will likely end up being a force to be reckoned with if they can find financial backing on the east coast.
HOW DOES THE UNION MAKE MONEY?
THE BORING WORK.
Founding Member Connor O'Neill's Father owned severall companies across north america many of which are sanitation companies. It may not be exciting work, or rewarding work, but it sure is easy. THEUNION uses the sanitation trucks quite often to move products about the city that need to be moved safely without arousing suspicion. The have also used them as road barricades and from time to time to ram through the front of a bank. Driving the Garbage trucks is also great training for THEUNION's next business venture...
BORROWING ARMORED CARS
THEUNION makes a killing stealing these Armored Cars and retrofitting them and selling them back to banks, security companies, police forces and militaries around the world. They are quite well known for the high success rate they have with acquiring these things and it has been rumored that they have even knocked one or two over on impulse having seen it driving down the street before.
BIG JOB BIG PAYDAY
Heists. Banks, Safehouses, Prisons, you name it THEUNION can rob it. It take time and lots of planning but it can be done. These operations do not happen very often but can provide THEUNION a big payday so if a union member ever has an idea about a potential target it is always heard out.
BACK TO THE BASICS
Intimidation, Extortion, Transportation, Security, Enforcing, THEUNION does it all. Though they don't except assassination contracts THEUNION will gladly rough people up, go along as back up or transport your goods for the right price. These jobs make up the bulk of THEUNIONS work even though they turn the least profit. This is how they make friends and connections and earn favors.
THE OLD TRADE
THEUNION used to make the bulk of their cash through their gun smuggling operation. The gang buys chinese ar-15s and handguns and has them legally shipped to British Colombia Canada, where they are broken down and smuggled into america through Idaho labeled as musical instrument parts. they are then driven down through nevada and into california. In Los Santos THEUNION has a workshop where they re-assemble the guns and sell them at a brilliant profit due to the fact that the chinese ar-15s are so cheap. that pairs with the fact that the ar-15 and several of the handguns THEUNION can get through china are also great quality makes them a popular choice for arming the gangs of California.
