END OF AN ERA [FULL] Link:
Here I am again. Another project, another story, another couple of months working on, making, perfecting, for two reasons:
For you people to experience, and
For my own creative release.
This Mission pack was conceived as my final DYOM project. I've been around a while, and most likely will be a while more after this is finished, but I doubt I will ever make a mission pack of this scale. Like every time before this one will be my favorite theme: good ole' GTA style. I myself was never fan of making a story using already established characters. For this one I made an exception. I dared to touch into the sacred GTA lore and combine all our favorite 3D era titles into an fan made continuation.
I've pulled the protagonists from:
GTA3 - Claude
Vice City - Tommy Vercetti
San Andreas - Carl Johnson
Liberty City Stories - Toni Cipriani
Vice City Stories - Vic Vance
Here I present you project I call: End of an era
This is a mission pack that follows life of all 3D era protagonists after their respective games. Therefore story starts after the events of the GTA3, around 2002. Under a simple idea I've put all the protagonists in one town, Las Venturas. They are pitted against each other in a bloody war for the control.
I've tried staying true to the characters as much as possible. Its not like all of them wanna piece of cake and enter a war. They all have their reasons. They are neither good or bad. Honestly depends on a viewpoint of the player.
I've considered making one of the protagonists also mine protagonist, but that left with a problem of favorism. Then I had an idea to make each chapter played from a viewpoint of another protagonist eg. one chapter with Claude, one with Tommy, and story would progress as the chapters go. My problem with this version was finishing the storyline. I do not wanna make any of them win easily (Like gameplay makes us do most of the time)
I decided to make a new protagonist. Closely tied to a major characther. I've worked on developing a personality for him. I believe I've made a complicated character that most people would love, and or associate with. Now its your job to decide is he good or bad. Are his actions just or not.
The old protagonists might have a bit of personality change. Sadly its unavoidable sometimes, but I've had to make some small changes here and there. But I always say they aged. Things changed, and they changed.
You will see a number of characters that survived their respective games like: Mickey Hamfists, 8ball, Woozie etc.
And you will see some new characthers I've made for the purpose of enriching the story (hopefully) like John,Jules,Randy.
Like always, I want you to have fun, let yourself get immersed and enjoy.
2002. Las Venturas, city of gambling and quick weddings.
Las Venturas prospered in last few years. Mafia involvement in the casinos was never smaller. Woozie still runs the 4 dragons, foreign investors and all kind of businessmen and celebrities are walking down the streets. Casino game is bigger then ever. Everyone that is anyone wants a slice of the cake.
After the death of Salvatore Leone, Leone gang was in decline. Joey Leone didn't want to be a part of the mafia anymore and declined an offer to become new don Leone. Most people lost hope after his refusal and left the Leones. It was Toni Cipriani, the loyal friend to Salvatore that stood up and decided to take the mantle of don of Leone and continue the operations. He decided to leave Liberty City permanently and settle in the desert. More precisely Las Venturas. Leones still owned a part of the Caligula from a while ago. After selling their property in Liberty, Toni bought out the casino and hotel fully. Now he and Leones are always around Caligula. Toni is seeking to legalise his operation as much as possible without losing influence and money. Soon he found himself sinking financially. He and his advisers are working on dealing with the situation.
Tommy Vercetti and his Vercetti gang are stronger than ever. They rule the drug trade on East coast right now. Everybody is afraid of them thanks to their powerful friends and connections.Tommy wants more than he has. He is preparing to take over even the west coast and establish a total drug empire all over the USA. He sent his two best men to prepare his arrival in Las Venturas. He plans on controlling both the casino game and the drug trade in the country.
Carl Johnson became a wealthy businessman. He resides in Los Santos currently. He distanced himself from grove street families once again after the gang threat was over. He continued buying and repairing then selling properties for next few years. Bought himself a fancy apartment in a skyscraper in Los Santos. He and Sweet are not on super terms. He currently focuses mostly on his investments and his managed job for the rap star Madd Dogg. But even after all these years spend sitting in a chair and buying and selling stuff, Carl still knows to cause chaos. Especially when someone touches into his family and friends.
Claude disappeared after the events of GTA3. No one knows where he went or if he is even alive. There are stories about him working as a hitman for wealthy people around the country. No one knows for sure, but knowing Claude he is always somewhere lurking.
Victor Vance staged his death during '86 after making a deal with Ricardo Diaz. Diaz promised him a safe passage if he gave up his drug empire and left the town never to return. Tired of everything that happened by then Vic accepted. He flew to Mexico and lived low profile for years. He was with mercenary group for some time. He was kicked out after an incident and found refuge with Mexican outlaw groups. He managed to raise to leader status in a few years. He transformed the outlaws and made a drug cartel, called Mexican Cartel. He started expanding rapidly and is sometimes even seen in Las Venturas. Currently he and his Mexican companions are terrorizing the deserts of Bone county.
