BUYG: Build Up Your Gang

Trouble

Grove Street Families

Chapter 1- Welcome.

 

My name Is Mike C. I was walking in the cold streets of Los Santos trying to find some food and then my phone started ringing.

 

“Who is this?” I asked, wondering who was calling.

 

“It doesn’t matter, look there is a guy waiting for you in a grey car down at Ocean Docks”

 

“I ain’t sure about this” I replied worried.

 

“Just do what I say, and you better go there quick he isn’t staying there forever.Bye”

 

When I arrived there, and a guy next to the car started talking to me.

 

“Hey you! Get in.”

I entered the car and I started driving and I asked:

“What’s going on? Where are we going?

 

“Do you want to join the Grove Street Families?”Questioned the guy.

 

“Yeah,for sure, what can I do?” I asked him.

 

“Im taking you to Grove Street you just go talk to Sweet ok man?” He said to me.

 

“Al’ight, see you later”I said while I was getting out of the car.

 

And Sweet was waiting for me on front of his house.

 

“What's up man, lets get some drinks there’s a bar close” Said Sweet to me.

 

“Ok...So why did you invited me in?” I asked Sweet.

 

“I like to see the familie getting bigger and stronger, where do you live?”Sweet asked to me?

 

“I don’t have a home, 6 months ago I was driving around the Downtown to go buy some food and accidentally I run over a cop... I had to sell my house to pay the bill and I lost all my money”I said.

 

“You can stay in my home, my sister Kendl isn’t living there, you can use her bedroom.”Said Sweet to me.

 

And then a car at full speed crashes into a tree and starts on fire.

 

“We have to save them quick!”I said to Sweet.

 

“No way man there are Ballas in that car, we better get out of here before the cops come check it out”Said Sweet grabbing my shirt to don’t let me go.

 

Back on the Grove, Sweet said me to call CJ to know where was he.

 

“Hey CJ my name is Mike im new in the Grove Street families, Sweet said to me to ask where are you” I said calling CJ.

 

“Im in San Fierro right now, Im about to take the next train to Los Santos meet me at Market Station, and welcome to the families.Cya”

 

30 minutes later at Market Station...

 

“Hi CJ everything alright with you?”Said I to CJ.

“Yeah everything is good come on lets get back to the grove”Said CJ to me.

 

Then a group of 5 vans passes by.

 

“Did you see that there was Vagos driving those vans we better follow them!” Said CJ while entering the car.

 

10 Minutes later the vans stop at a old factory at East Los Santos.

 

“Hey man we have to now what they are doing, come on lets go in”I said to CJ

 

“Hell no man we have to make a plan first and tell Sweet.We better get back to the grove and come back tomorrow...”

How about adding a "Crime" System? Where one or more members write about a crime (that doesn't fit into the basic day-to-day business of their properties) and they're rewarded an bonus amount of money ontop of their usual haul.

 

For example members could write about a bank job, casino heist, robbery, or something similar. They'd have to specify this before their story though, of course.

 

The only problem I can see is how we'd stem the tide of people just posting crime after crime without any particular context.

I was thinking about this and what if the writer has to dedicate 4 to 10 stories planning and preparing for the Bank Job or heist.

 

Depending on how good the stories are is if he can continue writing, like if his first "Preparing Story" is good he can continue writing about the heist but if does a bad one he will have to redo it or he cannot continue writing for the heist.

 

The writer should not get any money for his "Preparing Stories" but be paid more and more depending on how many "Preparing Stories" he has.

Lol. Thats not how it works, you already have a fish van. Have you read all of the rules?

That's quite good, it adds to Jacky Fiend's idea so now bad writers can't access it. Still, there comes a point where things get a little too complex and it might put off newcomers, whereas some other things people have suggested, such as the assets and moneymakers, will entice them.

LOL, I had a bank robbery planned in my storyline, and my 3rd story is still pending rates.

 

It wont be the same as if I was in the Mendez Cartel, and anybody read my suggestions about the Cholos?

Do we really need to include more gangs? They're not even all full up yet. It's a bit pointless if you ask me. Maybe replace a few gangs, but I can't see any reason for adding even more gangs that nobody will sign-up to and will remain active for months until somebody decides to write for them.

 

It's a bit like the weapons, people keep suggesting new weapons, but nobody owns all of them; why do we need more?

 

I also think BUYG should stick to the GTA 3-canon, no GTA IV gangs please. Maybe somebody over there will decide to create their own BUYG for the GTA IV-canon, but as for us, I think the old canon is fine. Otherwise we'll have too many gangs and canon clashes.

Yeah, you're right. No new gangs or weapons needed. I might replace the Golfers with the Cortez Cartel, since the Golfers aren't even a gang, just a bunch of smarmy old gits.

 

And nobody in the IV section can create a BUYG, since they'd need our permission first I woulda thought. There was some drama when Stefan created the last one here without asking Scifen's (then johnson) permission first. If we do have IV gangs, we'd probably either move the whole topic to the IV section or maybe create another one just for IV.

I'll sure as hell write for any VCS gang if they get added. (Cholos, Vance Crime Family, Mendez's) Golfers should defo. be removed, nobody will use them and they can be swapped with a gang I'm wanting, Cortez didn't even have a gang, so why making up one? He had a couple of random goons and that's it.

 

But your own choice, though when is my third story rated?

I agree with removing/replacing The Golfers, like you said, they're not even a gang. They're not involved in any sort of criminal activity and only cause the player trouble if you start causing havoc on the golf course.

 

Another suggestion may be changing the name of The Cubans to "Los Cabrones" as they're known in VCS.

That would be very constricting and would result in a lot of members loosing their weapons. I think the weapon system is fine as it is.

The same goes for the Vances - at least two gangs were dead, and the third was either Pete or Vic, both weren't involved in crime after (Vic wanted out in '84). Mendez Cartel were dead and exist as the Sharks now. The Cholos were a bit small and weren't very important.

 

Weapons are fine as they are. Might change it to Los Cabrones when the coding is up and running.

The Sharks have nothing to do with Mendez's, they just took over the abandoned Mendez mansion in Prawn. The Sharks were strong in 84 and weakened considerably when Vic took over all of their businesses. Then they changed to the 'Streetwannabes' and instead of no turf, took over the mansion.

 

Besides - what is the thing that gets confusing if older gangs are used?

Leone Family Mafia:Browning Hi-Power

$outh$ide Hoods:Safia 12

Varrio Los Aztecas:Mossberg 500, Colt AR-15

Sindacco Family:Browning Hi-Power, Benelli M4 Super 90

The Haitians:Handcuffs, Stun Gun

 

I think they should get there money back on those weapons and get rid of the non-GTA III canon weapons

You made a good point in order to get rid of the useless non-GTA weapons. The gangs get back the money spend on them and that's it.

 

And I saw my story being rated, thanks, I wrote it kinda fast but next time I'll improve the grammar because it was kinda random.

I have a question: What's the coding that everyone's talking about and what's wrong with it.

 

Also, can I switch gangs? I want to switch to the Cortez Gang once they replace the Golfers(whenever that is) because that will be a gang I can actually build up. The Sindacco Family's great and all and I'll be posting stories for them until the Cortez Gang appears, but they're already built up fairly well. If that's okay, then I will do that.

Coding is the tables at the first and second posts. If the staff hit the edit post button there then it'll look completely messed up because the forums admins have disabled BBCodes due to hacking and other sad things.

 

Also it's not very known whether the Cortez's goons are going to be added because they were only a few hitmen when you helped him escape.

Build Up Your Gang

Hello everyone,

 

---

 

Queen of Hearts

The Sindaccos

2nd story

$29

$571 + $29 = $600

Getting better, you still need to work on improving the dialogue. Try imagine them actually saying and doing things, and then write down some descriptive words on how they say and do these things.

Triad Fish Van purchased

$400

$600 - $400 = $200

 

---

 

Trouble

Grove Street Families

1st story

$16

$699 + $16 = $715

It was all dialogue, no action at all and even less description. Also, it was improbable that Sweet would pick someone off the street and ask someone to recruit them. Don't be disheartened by the bad rating and criticism, just trying to help you improve.

 

---

 

I think we decided to scrap the Golfers and not replace them. I'm not 100% sure, because a Cortez Gang would be pretty awesome. Also, I just remembered he does have a gang, to he who said he didn't, as that's who protected his boat when he escaped. I'm not sure what'll happen. In the meantime, keep up your Sindacco stories.

 

The BB coding is what makes up the front page tables. The forums were hacked a week or so ago, and so the Mods and Admin disabled the coding. This means that as soon as the first two pages are edited, the links to the weapons will mess up completely and screw up that whole second post. Once clickable links and images are fixed, then we can edit that second post with all the last few pages of goings-on. Comprende?

 

Oh man, already been answreed for you tounge.gif

 

Also, as for weapons, they're not hurting anyone as they are now. In fact, taking them away just wastes time and limits options. If you want the weapons used in GTA, buy them - they're there too.

Keep the stories coming everyone, along with ideas icon14.gif

I agree with Skimask, we should remove the non-GTA weapons from gangs account and give them back the money wasted for it then remove them off the list.

Also, as I've already stated, the current variety of weapons adds to creativity and gives people a nice choice. They're doing no harm as they are, so I see no need to waste my time in getting rid of them.

Because, as you've already been told a hundred-and-one times already; adding old or 'wiped out' gangs that require you to delve into the past to write for them will create confusion amongst writers. If one writer is writing a story set in 1983 and then the next person is writing one set in 2008, and one of them references the other, don't you think that's going to cause confusion?

 

Also, how are two gangs meant to battle when they exist in different time periods?

Er.... so this thing is being refused due to gang war confusions it may cause, if that's the case then f*ck it, I'll just continue with the Triads. Although the Vance Crime Family's wiping out has been speculations, because Vic was the leader and he's considered dead by some people while the other part say he's alive. So they could still exist to 2008 by the writers own ideas.

But whatever... The Mendez's are probably fully wiped out as their leaders got killed, same goes to Diaz's and Trailer Park Mafia. Cholos were a street gang and leaderless but considered wiped out as the Haitians takeover in VC.

SINDACCO FAMILY STORIES

Chapter III

 

I woke up at night around 1:00 AM to my plain apartment, and once again I got a call from Vinnie.

 

He said in his rough Jersey accent "Listen, you've been a good girl so far, but you need to prove that you can be an effective street enforcer. This involves a major Triad drug deal. If we pull this job off, then the Sindacco-Leone alliance is in the bag! Meet me outside."

 

I put down the phone and got dressed, neglecting to put on a bra, I put on a tank top and a pair of jeans. I slipped my shoes on and walked outside. There was Vinnie, outside in my yard. He was wearing a silver chain and a blue and white track suit, as well as some huge 80's style sunglasses.

 

I walked up to him. He said "Get in the car, we're going to the Chinatown-Trenton border near the Old School Hall. The Triads have a large amount of a new drug from East Asia called SPANK. This high is so potent not even the scummy Colombian Cartel will deal in it. The only ones are the Triads. But where are they getting it from? The only other gang that has been known to deal it is the Yardies, but they're too small-time. Us, the Leones, and the Yakuza don't deal in hard drugs, only weed, so we can rule them out too. But word on the street is that a Triad warlord named Billy Wong is meeting with his suppliers. Stake out the deal and crash it. You'll need a 9mm for this, the gun will help keep you from being overwhelmed. The Triads aren't expecting anyone else, so they'll be lightly armed."

 

He handed me a Browning HP handgun and some clips for it. I got in the car with Vinnie. We drove down the streets of Liberty and finally we reached the dingy and dull School Hall. There was a Triad Fish Van and about five Triads wielding meat cleavers and butcher knives. They were led by a man in a black suit, this guy must've been Billy Wong. But then a red and silver Stinger appeared. The Yakuza was dealing SPANK? That was absurd! But we listened anyway. Out stepped a beautiful Japanese woman and three other Yakuza thugs, unarmed and wearing gray and red suits with no ties.

 

Billy said "Asuka, you got the stuff? SPANK is the one thing that's giving us an advantage over the Mafia."

 

The woman said "Yes. Normally, tradition would bar us from selling these exquisite poisons, but I say f*ck tradition. I learned that from watching Fiddler on the Roof."

 

She opened the trunk of her car to reveal a large crate. She opened the crate and clear bottles of yellow powder and pills were inside. She said "Remember, tell your users to mix the powder with water and inject the goo. Or alternatively, swallow the already diluted pills. "

 

Wong said "Yes, Miss Kasen. I will tell them that."

 

Vinnie nodded to me, and I ran out with my gun. I shot Billy Wong between the eyes and a spray of blood came out the back of his head. Asuka and the Yakuza men made a run for it in the Stinger. One man shouted in a stereotypical Chinese accent "IT'S A MAFIA AMBUSH! RUN!" but I smoked him. Two came for me, wielding meat cleavers, but I shot the first one in the gut, letting him writhe in a pool of his own blood. I shot the other slasher in the chest, dropping him instantly.

 

Vinnie got out. He said he'd take care of the bodies and the Fish Van. I just had to go home. And go home I did. Finally, it was sunrise. I decided to go out to Hardee's for breakfast. I had me some biscuits, sausage, and bacon. At another table was Vinnie.

 

He walked up to me and whispered in my ear "Listen, I talked with the Don. You're officially an associate of the family, Keep up the good work and you'll be a made woman."

 

Breakfast was nice and I went back home, playing Crash Bandicoot on my Playstation. At the rate I was going, I could afford the new Playstation 2! I just had to keep up my work in the family.

I've already explained why they can't be put in.

 

- The Mendez Cartel's leaders are dead and extinct by 1986.

- The Diaz Gang's leader is dead.

- The Cholos are probably too small and unimportant a gang to feature, Haitians take their place in 1986.

- The Vance Crime Family, well Lance and one other brother is dead. If the surviving brother is Pete, then he was never involved in crime, if it was Vic, then he wanted out in '84 and the fact that Pete showed up in '86 meant he was out.

 

Anyways, Jacky Fiend has explained everything well, the gang wars bit was another part of why they're not there too. All the other gangs are possibly still in existence within GTA canon in 2008, whereas the ones you want in are extinct by the start of the '90s and before.

Well I don't want to sound annoying or anything. But like I said - the writers ideas can be anything, we don't know for sure if Vic got killed, but the writer can make their story as they want. Vic wanted out, but maybe he would change his mind later on. And if Pete was the survivor he can be considered the leader and takeover.

 

Also in my own world Lance survived Tommy's bullets, even if it's kinda BS, but it could still happen, haha.

It could be, only if Asuka was still alive.

Anyways, I guess somebody thinks of me as an idiot, but scrap everything I said, the thing you said is quite random but the Vance's fate is speculation and r* gave us the opportunity where we'll decide what happened.
