Welcome to the Commonwealth of New Sylvania in the 1970's-a groovy era where everyone is trying to have a good time with music, drugs, and every other vice the nightlife can offer.
 
You may think that life in small town, USA is nothing but quiet, peace and harmony, but this story will draw you into the darker side of New Sylvania - greed, corruption, temptation, and blood. Told through the eyes of Brooke-Meyer native Virgil Assante, a young and ambitious mobster with aspirations of reaching new heights with northeastern New Sylvania's Manganelli Crime Family.
 
Get involved in the more white-collar crimes in Romero, the dirty political wet-work in Kensington, or the easy balance of family life and extortion in Brooke-Meyer. Your goal is to reach the top of this small yet politically influential crime family during its golden age.
 
But be careful who you cross... one wrong move and it's lights out for you.

Protagonist
Born 1944 
27-year-old Vietnam vet who was dishonorably discharged from the Army in 1971 as a result of his involvement in an Asia-based heroin smuggling operation. Virgil wants to live the good life and will do anything in his power to get what he wants. Usually a well-centered man with a clear head, but push him enough and he'll show you his ugly side.
 
Virgil starts off with $80 in his pocket and drives a 1969 Vapid Olvido.
 
 
Born 1945
Virgil's long time friend since childhood as well as partner in crime. Paul is also a Brooke-Meyer native with close ties to the Jewish Mob in Henderson. He is the one who introduces Virgil to a life of crime and starts him off doing typical errands for The Jewish Mob.
 
Born 1949
A blonde Henderson Angel with eyes as blue as the Caribbean sea. She moves to Brooke-Meyer to get away from her dysfunctional family. She becomes the main love interest of Virgil Assante in 1971. She becomes his other half, his rock, and his spiritual mate. She vows to always love Virgil no matter what. But, she is also as crazy as Virgil at times. 
Born 1949
Stefani's best friend since childhood. A rather energetic nightlife vampire with only a taste for the fast life. Quite often, she is seen in an intoxicating state whether from alcohol or drugs and she seems to enjoy that way of life.
Born 1944
Another one of Virgil's best friend and a distant cousin. Mario is actually from Liberty City and moved to Brooke-Meyer at age 14. Virgil was his first friend. Mario still has a slight Liberty City accent that comes out when he is angry, which is often. He is very temperamental and that has gotten in trouble numerous times in his teenage years, even well into his adult life.
Born 1950
The youngest of the group. Phil started hanging around Virgil and Paul at age 9. He was always a rebellious child, always looking for a fight, and never backing down from a confrontation. At some point during Virgil's tour in Vietnam, he joined a local gang that work with Paul.
 
Born 1920
A veteran of the Henderson Jewish Mob. In his 30+ years as a Mob member, he has never spent a day behind bars. He has managed to operate at a huge level below the radar of the authorities. He made the move to Brooke-Meyer in 1965 to expand the Jewish Mob into New Sylvania. He is Paul Keitel's main employer.
 
CmNWPCO.png
Notes: The Jewish Mob dating back to the 1900's running South Henderson and expanding their operations to Northeast New Sylvania with their Second in Command, Ruben Nebish, leading this faction since the mid-60's.
 
HQ: Romero
Notes: The family that runs all of Northeast New Sylvania since 1954. A family with deep political connections hold power over the majority of companies in this region. Known as The Docile Don, Donnie is loved by many but feared by his fellow Mafiosi.
 
Notes: More popularly known as The Lenapia Mob, run by Johnny Dovi. Dovi runs his family like a legit conglomerate using tactics to get gain money and respect among politicians and business owners. Not known to be violent but they do have their bad eggs, such as Mickey Brasca.
 
Notes: Led by Frank DeMarco since 1948. A Sicilian who saw Havenburgh as a gold mine when everyone saw it as a backwoods town. Because of him, Havenburgh is the profitable monopoly it is today. At his current old age, he has slowed down quite a bit; However, he maintains his temper and spills more blood than anyone in New Sylvania.
 
Name: The Mid-West Commission

New Sylvania is based on the state of Pennsylvania.
 
 
The Map is separated by regions Northeast, Southeast, and West. Within these regions are the multiple towns that make New Sylvania the unique state it currently is. Each town has certain characteristics that make each one unique in its own way. 
 
Northeast
 
Romero - Known as The Bright City with all of its city lights shining the streets during all hours of the day. Is seen as a luxurious city to live in and a profitable location to open a business. Visit the landmarks that give this city its identity, such as Welcome to Romero light sign built in 1922, the Baldwin Fountain in the centre of town that is a beautiful work of art, and the Thibideaux Theatre located on Main Street where many artists have performed. Also, in between Romero and Brooke-Meyer is the Brooke-Meyer/Romero Intl. Airport located right on Interstate 18.
 
Brooke-Meyer - Although it may seem it is the ugly sister of the neighboring city, Romero, it does have a vital feature that Romero cannot offer. And that's the beautiful Catskill River. The residential areas are considered mainly upper-middle to lower-middle class with a heavy Italian, Jewish, and African-American community. Brooke-Meyer is also known as a party town. Visit the various nightclubs spread across town, partake in the debauchery, and stay out all night without a care in the world. Just be careful.
 
Kensington - Cross the Easton Street Bridge from Brooke-Meyer, cross the Catskill River and you will arrive at the visually beautiful town of Kensington. Home to the Kenzie Park, one of the biggest parks in New Sylvania, and home to the most prestigious restaurant in all of Northeast New Sylvania, La Isabella Platino Ristorante. It is considered to be one of the more better towns to live in with its low crime rate and peacefulness that spreads across from corner to corner.
 
Kennedy Plains - Located in the far west of Northeast New Sylvania. Kennedy Plains is mostly... plains, as the name says. Has the lowest populace in this region because of it's small residential areas. It mostly consists of plain fields used for farming. It's the country-side right next to the big cities Romero and Brooke-Meyer. Be careful roaming around the field at night, no one knows who or what can be hiding among the crops. Of course, it's just hearsay.
 
Mason Creek - Our little neck of the woods used for exploration and hiking. Nobody lives in the Creek. At the center of the Creek you will find a mesmerizing waterfall where people go to just take in the sights and watch the sunset. Who knows what roams about the woods, or should I say who knows who's buried in the woods?
 
Madison - Northeast New Sylvania's industrial park. All you will find is factories and warehouses full of workers. This is also where the labor union prospers.
 
Arborton - Located in the far south region. Arborton is a town that is not really considered "likeable" for it's San Fierro like hills, its maintenance, and its crime rate which gradually increases as time goes by. It has an airstrip for the locals that own small planes and for people that go skydiving.

Again, in addition to Bohemians & Blackjack plus some extras.
 
Drug Trade: The classic art of narcotic trafficking that you, the player, must master in order to operate on a much bigger scale but remaining under the radar.
  • Buying Products: You will find various dealers across New Sylvania that are willing to supply you. You have the options to purchase either Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, Amphetamines, and Barbituates but it all depends on your face level. The more face you gain in the streets, the better quality you can purchase. If you're looking for a rush, you can, in fact, indulge in the product but do too much of it and it'll greatly decrease your income and health.
  • Selling Products: The same as above, whatever you have, you can sell. Sell smart, and you will see plenty of profit. Sell dumb and you won't be able to break even.
  • Demand: Demand depends on the more popular drug in town. You might notice that people in Arborton demand more Heroin than anything else. Since plenty of spoiled rich gets live there, you can sell to them and make a great profit.
  • Heat:  Your best interest is if you fly under the radar. Of course, that means you can't move as much product as you'd like. But you can take a chance and make big moves, the risks of heat from the cops and your Boss will increase and will affect your runs.

Thank you guys for the comments.

 

I want to apologize for the wait for the first mission and the completion of the OP. I try to do little by little everyday until it's finally finished. When will that be? I am not sure but definitely sooner that later.

MISSION 1: Prologue - June 1971

 
A clear view of the bright blue sky; a high-noon sun striking the screen with its brightness. The screen pans downwards showing an almost tropical setting; an abundance of trees in a green field with a dirt road in the middle with tire tracks indicating that many heavy vehicles have driven this same road. The theme song and the credits commence.

Rapid gunshots are heard from a distance. The screen pans over to the Asian drivers' point of view, showing a military jeep rushing down in the opposite direction. The screen zooms in to see our protagonist driving erratically with an NVA mobile unit with two men chasing after him.
 
FJQqPM2.png
 
The theme song ends and Guitar Man by Elvis Presley begins playing, giving the consumer an adrenaline filled, blood-pumping ambience of fear and desperation. As our protagonist tries to remain calm enough to maneuver the sharp turns, an NVA officer begins shooting his assault rifle at the vehicle. Virgil ducks down to avoid getting hit and in a taunting manner, gives the officers the finger. Seeing that the NVA officers are getting real close, Virgil makes a sharp right turn on a road of an open field under the impression he has lost the pursuers. At this moment, you gain control of the Jeep and rush down this road. In a frustrated tone, you will hear Virgil exclaim-
 
"F*ck, f*ck, f*ck!"
 
After turning at the end of the road, you feel as if you are not alone. Looking behind and you will see the same NVA jeep rushing towards you. 
 
"Oh, f*ck me!"
 
Take whichever road you prefer to escape, but keep in mind, you are unarmed. Once you lose the pursuers a brief cutscene will begin, showing Virgil in a more calm state. He slows down and closes his eyes as he regulates his breathing. Unknowingly, he is heading straight for a tree at a bend. He opens his eyes on time to turn the jeep but he accidentally flips it over, tossing him out of the vehicle as it tumbles down a small hill.
 
Dazed and confused, he gets up from the ground and sees the jeep completely destroyed. He mutters under his breath-
 
"Sh*t."
 
He looks around his surroundings and sees a miracle, his military camp just at the bottom of the hill. As he commences to make his way, a jeep is heard braking abruptly. Virgil notices it's the same pursuers.
 
"These f*ckers don't give up, do they?"
 
Virgil ducks down and hides behind a rock. The distance between Virgil and the camp seems about three miles, but he must get there without being compromised. Doesn't seem easy as more NVA officers are spread around his location in search of him. You gain control of Virgil and the stealth mechanic is now introduced. You must plan your next move carefully as you get through the enemies armed with assault rifles. 

 

You can throw objects towards the opposite direction to distract whoever is near. This will, however, apply pressure towards the search, so do not make it a habit. 
 
Patience is key in this situation. You must wait for an opening to get through. If you are seen, a rain of bullets will drop upon you... Killing you almost in an instant and you have failed.
 
Once you have reached the point of safety, you can make your way to the camp without any interference but still be aware of your surroundings. Be alert for any sounds around you.
 
Once you have gone through this maze of fear and panic and have reached the camp. Virgil is introduced by his fellow soldiers with their rifles pointed at him, even after he has made yourself known to them. He comes to a stop in the middle of the camp when he sees his Commanding Officer coming his way at a rather frustrating pace. Virgil will stand at attention and salute.
 
"Corporal Virgil Assante reporting, sir!"
 
The Commanding officer will take a brief moment of silence to analyze Virgil's sloppy appearance. He is in his tank top which is full of dirt and dried up blood.
 
Sgt. Killebrew: What is the meaning of this, ASS-ante?
Virgil: Sir?
Sgt. Killebrew: You abandoned your post last night once again, didn't you?
Virgil: I did not, sir.
Sgt. Killebrew: Are you calling me a liar, ASS-ante?
Virgil: No I'm not, sir.
Sgt. Killebrew: Well, even if you're being abso-f*cking-lutely truthful with me and your company, it won't amount to sh*t.
 
Ending that statement with a drizzle of spit shooting at Virgil's face-
 
Sgt. Killebrew: Don't think I don't know about your little side-business you got here.
 
Virgil's face goes from serious to worried.
 
Sgt: Killebrew: In your absence, we found one of your followers wearing a Russian neck-tie just outside the perimeter. I can't even imagine the fact that Charlie has stepped foot in our safe haven and killed one of ours. Like nothing. 
 
Sgt. Killebrew gets up close and personal with Virgil.
 
Sgt. Killebrew: You are done. You hear me, wop? You. Are. Done! I want your sh*t packed and out of here in fifteen minutes. Do I make myself clear, guinea?
 
Virgil now becomes enraged and in a swift motion, he punches Sgt. Killebrew. Punching just a couple of times more until he hits the ground. The surrounding soldiers get Virgil off Killebrew and escort him to the exit. Outside is a recon unit waiting on Virgil to take him to a plane to fly him back home.
 
The screen transitions to the military plane already mid-air showing Virgil looking out the window seeing the blue sea. He rests his head back and closes his eyes. The screen will fade to black imitating Virgil. The pilot will then announce-
 
"We are now approaching New Sylvania."
 
The screen clears back and Virgil wakes up. He looks out the window, this time to see The State of New Sylvania, his home. People are seen walking down the main street of Brooke-Meyer, traffic is dense Downtown, and you can hear the liberating music of The Doors in the airwaves. 
 
Skip ahead to Virgil exiting the airport and hailing a taxi-
 
Virgil: Hey, could you take me to Downtown Brooke-Meyer? Right on the Square?
Driver: You got it.
 
The taxi will pull out and make its way to I-18 South. We get a full view of the city of Brooke-Meyer. Its shopping centre, the restaurants, and the densely populated Wilkes Square, where Virgil is dropped off. After he gets out of the taxi, he stands in the middle of the square. Looking around and he sees a different Brooke-Meyer. There are more people and the fashion has changed greatly. 
 
He reaches into his jacket and pulls out a cigarette. Realizing he doesn't have a lighter, he stops a random commuter and asks him if he has a lighter to which he responds yes and lights his cigarette. Across the square, Virgil notices a payphone, reaches into his pocket once again to find coins then makes his way to it. He puts in the required amount to make a call then dials an old number he remembers. After ringing three times, someone answers-
 
Man: Who's this?
Virgil: This still the number for Paul Keitel?
Paul: That all depends. Do I owe you money or did I f*ck your wife and/or girlfriend?
Virgil: Uh, no.
Paul: Then who the f*ck is this and how do you know my name and number if I didn't f*ck your girl?
Virgil: Paul, you Jew asshole, you haven't changed a bit.
Paul: You sure I didn't f*ck your-
Virgil: No you didn't. That all you're known for?
Paul: Pretty much. So what do you want?
Virgil: Uh, son of a b*tch, it's f*cking Virgil!
Paul: As in, Virgil the Italian sh*thead ASS-ante!?
Virgil: Go f*ck yourself you Jew prick.
Paul: Holy f*cking sh*t, brother! Where are you?
Virgil: At the Square. Can you pick me up?
Paul: I'm on my way right now. Don't move.
Virgil: Alright. See you soon.
 
Virgil will sit on a nearby bench to wait for Paul. It will fast forward to the moment Paul arrives.
 
Paul will arrive in his Vapid Olvido and park across the street. When he gets out you see a man with long hair and a beard and wearing glasses. His clothing is the typical 1970's fashion with the wide collar and bell-bottoms. At full height, he is a couple of inches shorter than Virgil. He walks with a slight yet noticeable limp from his right leg. He crosses the street and meets up with Virgil.
 
Paul: Virgil f*cking Assante!
Virgil: Paul f*cking Keitel!
 
The two have a hug and pat each others back.
 
Paul: God. It's so good to see you. How long has it been?
Virgil: It's been 4 long years, Can you believe it?
Paul: No. This whole time I thought you'd be dead in a ditch getting pissed on by a China-man.
Virgil: You'd love that wouldn't you, you sick bastard.
Paul: It would save me a trip to the funeral.
 
The two share a very heart-warming laugh.
 
Paul: Now can we get the f*ck out of here? I need a drink.
Virgil: Alright. Let's go.
 
The pair make their way to the car, to which Virgil comments-
 
Virgil: Nice ride, man.
Paul: Thanks. She hasn't failed me yet.
 
They get in the car with Virgil in the Passenger seat. They have a conversation during the car ride.
 
Paul: So you on leave?
Virgil: Actually, no. Got discharged.
Paul: You don't sound too happy about it.
Virgil: Well it's just, I dedicated three years of my life to serve my country and I didn't get far going by the book.
Paul: By the book? What, did you start selling drugs to the blacks?
Virgil: You're not far off.
 
Paul stops at a red light and looks over at Virgil with a concerned look.
 
Paul: No sh*t.
Virgil: Yeah. A real American soldier in the drug trade.
Paul: Well, what did you move? Weed? Coke?
Virgil: Heroin.
Paul: The big league, huh.
Virgil: It's a dirty business controlled by greedy men with no remorse.
Paul: I'm guessing you done killed a few of them for trying to f*ck with you, huh?
Virgil: Actually, no. Never.
Paul: Wait, what? You went to fight in a war and you didn't kill anyone? What, you going all "Thou shall not kill" or what?
Virgil: It's not that. Just never been put in a situation where I had to kill. Been chased a few times but never had to pull the trigger.
Paul: That's a very cute story.
Virgil: F*ck you.
 
They will arrive at Paul's residence, an old apartment building with a dark brown hue, and park at the private parking lot besides the building. They will make their way upstairs to the fourth level and enter Paul's apartment. A small apartment with the lights off but dimly lit by the multiple lava lamps spread across the living and kitchen area.
 
Paul: Welcome to the castle of Lord Keitel.
Virgil: This a nice place, Paul. How long have you lived here?
Paul: About a year. After I moved back from Henderson.
Virgil: Henderson?
Paul: That's a story for another day. But right now, I know you're tired and need a shower. I got a guest bedroom mainly used for questionable orgies so you can sleep on that. And I'm sure you can find the bathroom. If not-
Virgil: I got it, dick.
Paul: Well alright then. I'm gonna head out and do some errands. You can stay here as long as you need. Just have one condition. Anything involving drugs and prostitutes, please share.
Virgil: I'll uh, try to keep that in mind.
Paul: Perfect. Now get comfortable, alright buddy. I'll see you later.
Virgil: See ya man.
 
Paul will leave and you are now in your new safehouse. You can shower and change your clothes, eat whatever is in the fridge, or sit down and turn on either the television or the radio. You have access to everything in your safehouse. Feel free to explore it more before going to your bed to sleep which will save the game and advance to the next day.
 
Once you have saved your game, you have completed the mission.

MISSION 2: Welcome Home - June 1971

 

Once you wake up the next day and make your way to the living room, you will notice Parl sleeping on the floor. Virgil gives him a slight kick to his side to wake him up, Paul wakes up immediately-

 

"What the f*ck?"

 

Paul turns and sees Virgil standing over him with a grin.

 

Virgil: I'm guessing you and the bed got into a fight?

Paul: So you got jokes now?

Virgil: Only on Friday's. 

 

Paul gets up and fixes himself.

 

Virgil: The hell happened between the moment you left last night and now?
Paul: I had a long night. Let's just leave it at that.
Virgil: Okay, not suspicious at all.
Paul: No, not at all.
 
The two head towards the kitchen and prepare some breakfast-
 
Paul: I got some hero's in the fridge if you want 'em.
 
Virgil will go through the fridge and get one of the sandwiches and starts eating it right away. Paul, however, grabs a Cabot Premium beer and drinks it. 
 
Virgil: Really?
Paul: What?
Virgil: It's 10 AM.
Paul: A Cabot a day, f*cks you up the right way. You want one?
Virgil: Maybe later.
Paul: Wow, okay I see. Getting a little weak in your old age.
Virgil: Old Age?-
Paul: I mean, if you're missing the proper equipment between your legs then, my condolence.
Virgil: Now you're the one with jokes? You know what? Give me a goddamn beer. I can guarantee I can finish it before you.
Paul: Is that a Chug-llenge?
Virgil: Yes, it is.
Paul: Very well, worthy opponent. Prepare for your loss.
 
Paul grabs two more beers and hands one to Virgil.
 
Paul: To the winner, the spoils.
Virgil: To the loser, the sh*tter.
 
This is when a new mechanic gets introduced, the beer chugging mini-game. You must wait until your opponent gives the word to begin. Once he says it, press R2 and Virgil will bring his drink up to his face and commence drinking. It is at this moment you must hit the button sequence as it pops up in the middle of the screen. Missing a button will slow down Virgil's drinking. The more buttons you miss, the more complicated the sequence will get, if you miss more than 60%, Virgil will stop drinking, making you the loser automatically. Hit everything right and on time, you'll receive golden points which will help Virgil drink faster.
 
If you lost:
 
Paul: Ha! Nice try Marine Boy. But Lord Keitel is the Messiah of the drinkers.
Virgil: Lucky win, you f*ck.
 
If you won:
 
Virgil: Still taking sips, huh? I told you,Paul, you can not out-drink me. How does it feel to lose every single time?
Paul: When you're not looking, I'm gonna arrange a f*cked-up reunion with that bottle and your ass.
Virgil: Flirting will get you nowhere.
Paul: F*ck you.
 
After the mini-game is finished-
 
Paul: So what you gonna do today?
Virgil: I don't know. I'd like to visit my parents. Maybe find Mario and Philly.
Paul: Well, go ahead. Mario lives on Hannah Street now. You remember Lenny?
Virgil: Yeah. The skinny guy with the hot sister.
Paul: Yeah well- Wait you actually thought she was hot?
Virgil: Uh, no of course not.
Paul: Anyway, Mario lives in Lenny's house now.
Virgil: Okay. What about Phil?
Paul: Last I heard, Phil was doing a small bid.
Virgil: State?
Paul: County. Nothing big. I don't know if he's out or not. And of course, your parents are still at the same place.
Virgil: Cool. Can you give me a ride?
Paul: I would, but I'm late for work. There's a bus stop right on the corner that takes you straight to your parents and Hannah Street. It's only a quarter.
Virgil: Alright. So, what's your job?
Paul: Male prostitute.
Virgil: Sometimes I wonder if you're joking or not.
Paul: Wouldn't you like to know.
 
The two share a laugh.
 
Paul: Alright Bud, I gotta head out. Meet me over at Teberio's later with Mario.
Virgil: Sounds like a plan. See you then.
 
You now have control of Virgil and you are given the objective to visit your parents house by bus. Step outside and see Paul's block, Gerald Street. This is your home. 78 Gerald Street is your address and the parking lot at the side of the building is where your default vehicle will spawn. You can also save maximum three other street vehicles, but if you haven't payed for it then it will only be saved temporarily. Right on the corner is the bus stop Paul mentioned. They spawn every fifteen to twenty-five minutes in-game. Walk up to the bus stop and wait for the bus to arrive. Once it does, press "Triangle" to enter and Virgil will automatically pay the toll and sit down. You can change the camera from First Person to Cinematic. Your map will show the current bus route you are on. Keep a close eye at your destination and the bus stop near it. Once you are close to your destination, press "Triangle" again and the bus will stop at the next stop. You will get off and you walk to a white single-family house and step on the mission indicator. A cutscene will commence. Virgil is seen knocking on the door and through the glass pane, you can see someone coming towards the door. Virgil's mother answers-
 
"Virgil!"
 
Virgil and his mother have a hug-
 
Mona: I can't believe my boy's home.
Virgil: Hey Ma, how you been?
Mona: I been good. Oh, come in, come in.
 
Virgil enters the house and takes off his military coat.
 
Mona: Wait til your father sees you, he is gonna be so happy.
Virgil: Where is he?
Mona: In his room, sleeping.
Virgil: Still?
Mona: He came home late last night, again.
Virgil: Still drinking?
Mona: Yeah, but he's gotten better over time. Don't bring it up, he'll just swear up and down that he's okay. 
Virgil: It's alright Ma, I won't say anything.
Mona: Alright. Let me call him down.
 
She will make her way upstairs yell out her husbands name-
 
"Pazzo! Wake up!"
 
Virgil will sit on the couch waiting for his father to come down. He looks around and sees old family photos. He looks at one where he was a kid standing alongside his father in Wilkes Square with "Summer of '53" written on the bottom-right corner. He sees another of his parents wedding from 1943. It shows their younger selves smiling with such happiness, something that Virgil hasn't seen in a long time. The last photo he sees is of him, Paul, Mario, and Phil standing together smiling in 1967, the day before Virgil was shipped to Vietnam. Someone begins talking to Virgil's surprise-
 
Pazzo: Good times. huh?
Virgil: Hey Pop.
 
The two have a heartwarming hug.
 
Pazzo: Welcome home, Son. How you been?
Virgil: Alive, Pop. They couldn't get me.
Pazzo: And they never will.
 
They share a laugh and the screen will zoom out to the front of the house and time will forward up to the moment Virgil leaves.
 
Virgil: I gotta go, Ma.
Mona: Where are you gonna sleep?
Virgil: Paul's place. He's helping me.
Mona: Paul? Paul Keitel?
Virgil: Don't start, Ma.
Mona: I've been telling you for years, Paul is nothing but trouble.
Virgil: But he's also my best friend.
Mona: Just promise me, you'll be careful. Don't let Paul get you into any more bullsh*t.
Virgil: I'm a grown man, Ma. I'm careful.
Mona: Well I'm glad.
 
They have a hug-
 
Mona: Be sure to visit us. We're always here.
Virgil: I will, Ma. I'll call you later.
 
Virgil steps out of the house and walks towards the bus stop once again. Wait for the bus to arrive. Once it does, you enter and head towards your next destination, Mario's house. Once you get there, you will see Mario on his drive-way working on his 1971 Barbican Jet. Virgil will approach him.
 
Virgil: I didn't know we can chop cars on our driveways now.
 
Mario turns around and notices Virgil-
 
Mario: Virgil, holy f*ck! I can't believe you're back.
Virgil: How's it going, Mario.
 
The two have a hug and share a laugh. Mario screams towards his house-
 
"Yo Philly! Get out here!"
 
Phil Vestyk is seen coming out of the house and rushes to Virgil and gives him a hug.
 
Phil: Virgil f*cking Assante! Glad to see you're not dead.
Virgil: Philly, you've certainly grown. 
Mario: Yeah, he thinks he's a big man. But he's still the little bitch following us around.
Phil: Hey, f*ck both of you.
Virgil: Hey Phil, Paul said you was doing a bid and didn't know if you were out or not.
Phil: I actually got out yesterday. Mario got me.
Virgil: What were you in for?
Phil: Burglary. Only did six months.
Mario: I keep telling him to stop getting caught or else he'll be inside for years rather than months.
Phil: And this, children, is why you need a good reliable crew.
Mario: That's true. But look, f*ck this reminising bullsh*t. Let's get a drink. Where you guy wanna go?
Virgil: Paul said to meet him at Teberio's.
Mario: Teberio's it is then. Let's go.
Phil: I'll meet you guys there. I gotta take care of a couple of things.
Mario: Alright, we'll see you there. Let's go, V.
 
Phil walks away and Mario and Virgil walk towards Mario's car.
 
Mario: You wanna drive?
Virgil: Really?
Mario: Say yes before I change my mind.
Virgil: Alright, alright.
 
Mario hands Virgil the keys and you are now able to drive. Familiarize yourself with the driving controls then make your way to Teberio's. During the ride-
 
Virgil: Can't believe how much this city has changed in only four years.
Mario: Yeah. A lot has changed, but for the better.
Virgil: You look like you're doing well. Living in a good house, driving this nice car. You've done alright.
Mario: It comes with the territory. But actually, all of us are doing well. I got some things going on that I'm profitting from. Philly got something going on. But Paul, got a big thing going on.
Virgil: Like what?
Mario: If he hasn't told you, I ain't saying a word.
Virgil: Fair enough.
 
Follow the marked route on your map to your destination. Once you arrive, a cutscene will begin. It shows Teberio's, a hotspot for the young adults to let loose and have a good time. You walk in and notice the groovy dim-lit lighting with a variety of colors transitioning and some great rock music coming out of the jukebox. Walk towards the end of the bar where Paul is sitting already. You will have a seat next to him.
 
Paul: There you guys are. I already had three beers waiting for you jackasses.
Virgil: So you waited five minutes. That's nice.
Paul: Where's Philly?
Mario: He'll catch up with us. Let's get a drink.
 
You can order whatever you want: Beer (Pisswasser, Cabot, and Clover) or Liquor (Whiskey, Rum, Vodka, Scotch) They will be paid by Paul and Mario this time. Once you choose your drink and it is given to you, the trio will prepare for a toast. At that moment is when Phil will walk in and join you. His drink is already ordered and he joins in the toast.
 
Paul: To our best friend, Virgil Assante. We thank God for getting you back to us safe.
Mario: Here's hoping you can achieve whatever goal you have. You've always had that drive and I know you'll get far.
Phil: We love you Virgil, and we wanna see you prosper.
All Three: To Virgil f*cking Assante!
 
Everyone takes their drink.
 
Virgil: Thanks guys, I really do appreciate this.
Mario: Enough with the p*ssy talk. Let's get another round.
 
The group will spend hours drinking as the time fast-fowards til they decide leave. They are all heavily intoxicated.
 
Paul: [Slurred] I got an idea. Let's head back to my place, take some of these girls with us and have a real party. What do you guys say?
Virgil: [Slurred] Let's do it.
Phil: [Slurred] F*cking A, let's do it.
Mario: [Slurred] Well, how can I say no to that? I'm in. You guys want a little pick me up?
 
Mario will take out a small bag of cocaine and show it to the group.
 
Paul: Put that back. We can't do it here. Let's go to the bathroom. You guys in?
Phil: I'm in.
Paul: Virgil?
Virgil: Let's do it.
 
The group make their way to the bathroom. Mario sets up four rails of cocaine on the edge of the sink. He rolls up a twenty-dollar-bill and consumes one line. He then passes it to Phil and he will do the next line. Same with Paul and Virgil. After taking the cocaine, the screen has a bright effect, almost like a filter. It affects your movement, your balance, and how you speak.
 
Virgil: I got an idea. Let me see the bag.
 
Mario hands Virgil the bag of cocaine.
 
Virgil: Wait here.
 
Virgil steps out of the bathroom and notices a table with four women. He makes his way towards them. He grabs their attention-
 
"Excuse me, but you girls are exactly what I'm looking for. Would yous' care to help a Vietnam Vet have a good time tonight?"
 
The girls laugh
 
Nancy: And if we say yes, you gonna handle all four of us?
Virgil: Oh I could, trust me. But no, I only need one. And it's the one I'm looking at right now.
 
Virgil grabs the attention of a blue-eyed blonde girl
 
Virgil: What's your name?
Stefani: Stefani. What's yours?
Virgil: I'm Virgil The Vietnam Vet.
Stefani: Well Virgil The Vietnam Vet, nice to meet you.
Virgil: Like-wise.
 
Virgil looks around the table
 
"You girls interested in a little pick me up?"
 
Virgil shows the girls the cocaine-
 
Nancy: That kinda party, huh? I'm in. Girls?
Nicole: Yeah, let's do it.
Cici: Sounds like fun. You coming Stef?
Stefani: ...Yeah. Let's go.
 
They all head towards the bathroom where Paul, Phil, and Mario are already at.
 
Nicole: Now it's a party.
 
The group continues to consume the cocaine. Phil and Cici begin kissing quite intimately, Nancy and Paul seem to be close, Nicole and Mario hit it off right away. Virgil puts his arm around Stefani-
 
"You ain't used to this are you?"
 
Stefani hesitates to answers out of embarrassment.
 
Virgil: It's okay, I don't care.
Stefani: I do it sometimes, just not a lot.
Virgil: I'm the same way. It's no big deal.
Paul: Hey everyone, party at my place!
 
Everyone agrees and they head out. Everyone gets in their cars and follow Paul to his place. Once you have arrived, Paul will put on the music and break out the liquor. Here you have the chance to get to know the girls more by initiating conversations with them. Once you're done with that you can talk to Stefani who is in the kitchen area drinking with Nancy.
 
Virgil: Mind if I join you?
Stefani: Not at all.
 
Stefani prepares two shot glasses and hands one to Virgil. They takes the shot and share a moment as they stare into each other's eyes. Stefani grabs the bottle-
 
"Want another shot?"
 
Virgil will agree to it. Another two shots are served by Stefani and they drink it. Once they both put their glasses down, they share another moment again. Virgil reacts this time and goes up to Stefani and kisses her. The screen pans over to the rest of the party, doing a 360 then fast-foward to the next morning when everyone is asleep. Paul and Nancy sleep naked covered by a bed sheet on the living room floor. Mario and Nicole are also naked and asleep on the couch covered by their loose clothes. Phil and Cici are found in the bath tub, again, naked and sleeping. Virgil and Stefani are in the guest bedroom, also naked and sleeping. Virgil is the first to wake up and noticed Stefani on his bed. He smiles as a way to congratulate himself. As soon as he gets up from bed and puts clothes on, you have passed the mission.

MISSION 3: Job Hunt - June 1971
 
Virgil is seen in the kitchen drinking coffee while everyones asleep. Stefani wakes up wearing only a white button-down white that is too big for her and makes her way to the kitchen towards Virgil. The two share an intimate look.
 
Stefani: Hiya Stranger.
Virgil: Hiya Back.
 
Virgil serves Stefani a cup of coffee and they sit down and talk.
 
Virgil: That was quite a night, last night.
Stefani: Yeah, it was. 
Virgil: The perfect welcome home party with the perfect blonde alongside me.
 
Stefani looks down at her coffee to hide the fact she is blushing from Virgils compliment.
 
Stefani: Oh stop it. I'm not perfect.
Virgil: Don't do that.
Stefani: Don't do what?
Virgil: What you just did. You are the most beautiful woman I've ever seen in my life apart from Paul when he wets his hair.
 
Stefani and Virgil share a laugh as they sip their coffee. They soon get silent and stare into each others eyes. Virgil looks deep into her bright blue eyes feeling enamoured. Stefani caresses Virgil's left side of his face with her hand. It's clear they want each other, so they lean towards each other to share a kiss. As they're face-to-face... Paul interrupts-
 
"What in the f*ck are you two doing? Falling in love? That's a no-no in Lord Keitel's Castle."
 
The two lean back and continue to drink their coffee.
 
Paul: Did I interrupt something?
Virgil: I hate you.
Paul: Aww Virgil's getting all touchy-feely with his new blondie.
Stefani: Quite the gentleman.
Paul: Better believe it Blondie.
 
Paul gets up and enters his bedroom and changes into more appropiate clothes. Nancy will also wake up-
 
"There any vodka? In this case, even rum will do."
 
She stands up completely naked in front of Virgil and Stefani, and also Phil who has just woke up.
 
Stefani: Nance, are you serious?
Phil: Yes. She. Is.
Virgil: Cover your eyes, Philly.
Phil: Oh f*ck you Virgil, if it's there, I'm f*cking looking.
 
Paul comes back to the living room-
 
Paul: Whoa, ready for round four?
Virgil: Four?
Stefani: Nance, can you please put some clothes on.
Nancy: It's not like they feel weird seeing me naked, do you, boys?
Phil: Define weird.
Paul: That is my sugar bowl, Phil. You got your own.
Stefani: That's it. Come with me.
 
Stefani will take Nancy to Pauls bedroom and help her get dressed.
 
Paul: Hey Blondie, me and Virgil gonna head out. Yous gonna be okay?
Stefani: Yeah.
Virgil: We're going out?
Paul: Yeah, let's go.
 
The two make their way to the door. Paul quickly stops his tracks and turn around-
 
"Make sure you leave her panties on my nightstand. Thank you."
 
Now they leave and enter Paul's car.
 
Paul: You drive.
Virgil: Where to?
Paul: Coolbaugh Meat Packing.
Virgil: That's all the way in Madison.
Paul: I'm aware.
Virgil: Okay.
 
You are given the objective to drive to the Madison Industrial Park. During the ride, Paul will initial conversation.
 
Paul: So.
Virgil: So.
Paul: Sooo, that blondie. How was she?
Virgil: Really?
Paul: What?
Virgil: That's a little personal, don't you think.
Paul: And you f*cking her on my bed isn't personal?
Virgil: ... Good point.
Paul: Now give me details.
Virgil: She's a wild girl. Her moans of ecstasy had me going crazy. And the kisses were something that felt amazing and-
Paul: I want dirty details, not no lovey-dovey bullsh*t. You suck at this.
Virgil: You're just a sly.
Paul: A Sly who wants to know if it's tight or not.
 
Once you have made it to your destination, a cutscene will commence. Showing Virgil and Paul walking in the reception desk of this meat-packing warehouse.
 
Paul: Hey there, good-looking.
Receptionist: How can I help you two?
Paul: Well, there's one thing you can help me with but that's for another day. 
We're here to get this man right here, a job.
Virgil: Wait, what?
Paul: Aren't you looking for work?
Virgil: Well, yeah. But why here? There's no way I'd ever work here. No f*cking way.
Receptionist: The pay starts at $12 an hour.
Virgil: I'll take a look at that application.
Paul: Attaboy.
Virgil: I mean, it can't hurt right?
Paul: When can he start?
Receptionist: He can start right now if he'd like. First shift hasn't started yet.
Paul: He'll do it.
Virgil: Wait a minute-
Paul: He is so excited.
Receptionist: Follow me, sir.
Paul: Go kill 'em, Bud.
Virgil: I f*cking hate you.
Paul: You'll thank me later.
 
Virgil will follow the receptionist to a locker room where Virgil can change into more appropiate clothing for the job. Once you are all changed, you must follow her to the work area. She'll show you what you can begin doing which will be sealing packages and moving them to the next station. A QTE will appear where you must hit the right button at the right time without any errors. You will then be transfered to another station where you must also do the QTE. Once you completed that, the time will advance up until it's for you to leave. You step outside and feel the hot sun warming you up and you see Paul in his car waiting for you to get.
 
Paul: How was your first day, Bud?
Virgil: Not bad. I only got frost-bite uh, everywhere!
Paul: That's the working life, Man. Wanna go straight? Gotta do what you gotta do.
Virgil: If going straight means freezing in a meat-filled fridge til your dick feels off, then I want no part of it.
Paul: There are other jobs.
Virgil: I mean it. The nine to five life is not for me.
Paul: Actually it was like ten to almost six.
Virgil: Paul...
Paul: You want a real job?
Virgil: Yeah.
Paul: Alright.
 
Paul will pull over so you can switch to the driver seat.
 
Paul: Drive to Market St. and Jones.
 
Paul reaches towards the back seat and gets a plastic bag with a substance heavily wrapped in syran wrap and shows it to Virgil as he's driving.
 
Paul: This is what you're gonna do. I'm gonna tell you to drive to certain places to do drops offs and pick ups. You're main concern should be to make sure you don't bring back any police attention. If we get caught, we're looking at serious time.
Virgil: What is it we're dropping off or picking up?
Paul: Rule number one: Don't ever ask what you're picking up or dropping off. Makes the job easier. All you need to know is you're carrying something hot and you're selling it. Simple. Pick up, Drop off, Get paid, Drive away. Easiest money you'll ever get. Any questions?
Virgil: Uh..
Paul: Good.
 
Once you have reached your destination, you will notice another vehicle parked at the opposite direction in front of you. 
 
Paul: Wait for him to flash his lights.
 
The other car flashes his lights once.
 
Paul: Now you flash 'em.
 
You flash your lights once. Then the car will start driving.
 
Paul: Now follow him.
 
You follow the other car to a desolate alleyway where you will come to a stop.
 
Paul: They will come to you. Just sit tight and have the package ready.
 
Two men will exit the other car and make their way towards you.
 
Paul: Gentlemen, I can see personal hygiene has not been good to you.
Thug 1: The package?
 
Virgil hands him the package.
 
Paul: The money?
 
The other thug will hand Paul a roll of cash.
 
Paul: Pleasure doing business, Gentlemen. Now do everyone a favor and invest in soap and new clothes. Let's go, V.
 
You will drive away.
 
Paul: Easy, right?
Virgil: They really tried to look intimidating.
Paul: They always do. Crazy Polacks. So what do you think?
Virgil: It's easy, it gets your blood pumping. I like it.
Paul: In that case, you work for me now. Now let's finish these runs.
 
Now you must complete three more drop offs to complete the mission. Once you completed all three, you are given the objective to drive back to Paul's home.
 
Paul: Good job, man. Not bad for your first day.
Virgil: Yeah, think I'll keep this job.
Paul: Good. Heres your first days pay.
 
Paul hands Virgil a roll of money with $300.
 
Virgil: Oh wow. For just one day?
Paul: For half a day. The more you do these runs, the more your pay adds up. 
Virgil: Nice.
Paul: We'll do it again tomorrow. Now if you'll excuse me, I got a crazy alcoholic brunette waiting for me.
Virgil: Have fun.

I have to say if there's one thing that continues to stand out it's the back-and-forth between Virgil and Paul. It's natural, it's familiar, you can tell they annoy the sh*t out of each other but it's all part of the fun. It paints a very convincing picture that they've been friends for a long time. In that vein Paul also strikes me as a very memorable character in general. An irritating, womanizing prick that people grow to love like an even more intense Joe Barbaro from Mafia II.
 
Keep it up man. :^:

But a Commonwealth... Is it supposed a independent country or a state from US? I understand by Commonwealth as an independent country who belong to an organism where are more countries who was colonized by UK. Unless New Sylvania is Canada, which is a Commonwealth.

Where is New Sylvania based?

@Cebra. I enjoy writing for Paul. He's a mix of Joe Barbaro, Roman Bellic, and my best friend of 17 years.

@jesucristo. New Sylvania is based on Pennsylvania which is a commonwealth in real life.
