Grand Theft Auto: Cosa Nostra

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Main Theme

It is the year 1959. Liberty City is becoming a rich beacon of capitalism in the United States after the allied victory of WWII. However, with increasing number of industrial buildings, smell of pollution and corrupt politicians also comes more violence, gangs and organised crime, a large amount of which comes from overseas.

Grand Theft Auto: Cosa Nostra follows the journey of Salvatore Leone through his association with the Sicilian Mafia, union wannabe-wiseguys and fellow psychotic guidos and guidettes.

yDOlBoy.png?1

ZJaDR8X.png

 

As of 1959, Portland is going through multiple renovations and urban renewals. With businesses dying in the Norwegian corner of Lutefisk Boulevard and the Hepburn Heights Park getting paved off for new residential buildings, the borough is expected attract more migrants who can contribute to the high-rent, low-salary atmosphere of the city. That being said, there are also several union uprisings in the industrial areas who demand fairer rights and will desperately agree to any offer they are presented to achieve it, even if it means unknowingly smuggling product into the country for the mafia.

y0W5Q1n.png

Salvatore LeoneA young Sicilian mafioso fresh off the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea. He arrived in Liberty City with his uncle back in 1944 when he was a mere child. Her mother entrusted his uncle Vittorio to look after him after his father died in the Italian Civil War. As of 1959, he's an enforcer for the Clancio family in Liberty City and takes order from his uncle, whether it be beating up some street punks downtown or hot, heavy deals with other families.

Vittorio LeoneSalvatore's ever-loving uncle, and furthermore, the underboss of the Clancio family. He's in charge of the Northeast set of the organisation but regularly travels back to Sicily to attend meetings. He's a man of strong morals and ethics, he views honour as a debt to his boss and values it over anything else. Albeit he has a strong temper that shows at the worst of times.

Antonello Torini: Don of the Clancio crime family. He runs the organisation from Palermo and almost never leaves the place. On overseas operations he prefers to send out his son in his place instead. He's a patronising old man type of person. He talks big, acts big and pretends that the world owes him something. His main base of operations in Liberty City is the docks at Atlantic Quays, from which his trusted associates run it as a front for pharmaceutical trafficking.

Massimo Torini: Son of the Don. An enforcer for the Clancios. He frequently acts as a representative whenever he can take time off hookers and jazz saloons. His main skill is diplomacy rather than being a gunman. Although despite his relation to the don, he's lesser up there in food chain as Vittorio has grabbed the seat as the de facto heir of the family - That and Massimo prefers to spend his time with jazz saloons, independent car theft rings and hookers which he considers more fun.

Teresa Flori: Salvatore's seemingly normal neighbour. She works at a place called the Siciliano Restaurant beside Saint Mark's and has a tendency to change boyfriends every two weeks.

Jane Hopper: A union member and the inside-dame of the Clancios in Atlantic Quays. She's the de facto boss at the establishment but, being three-quarters French, she's only an associate of the family and doesn't get much control in the operations any more than making sure they go smoothly. Although she acts tough and strong, she's actually highly-frightened of the ideas of gunfights and life-stake situations. Her actual, official position at the place is a mere secretary and translator.

Mike Toreno: Massimo's half-Portuguese third cousin. Just as Jane he's an associate to the family and handles the safety of the products after they get set on land. However one thing that separates him from her is being a secret DEA agent.

Lauritz Fredsen: Resident of Lutefisk Boulevard. WWII veteran who fought for the Norwegian government-in-exile as an explosive specialist. He gets by making bombs and selling it to whichever gang will pay the most. Nowadays he's sick of Liberty City and vows to return to Norway.

Verano Leone: Salvatore's cousin and Vittorio's son. He was brought to Liberty City alongside Salvatore under the pretence that he would live a safe, normal life there. Upon discovering the actuality of the situation he has tried to tie himself away from his relatives' professions as much as he could. He lives as a clean, cut student at the Liberty City Community College.

Aldente Forelli: Don of the Forelli mob out of Little Italy, the most powerful crime family present in Liberty after the Clancios. His organisation runs several fronts all over Staunton Island, the most notable one being The Garden Theatre in Aspatria.

Liviana Leone: Salvatore's humble, stay-at-home mother and an unseen character.

So, a concept thread set in the 3D universe, heh? Feels like a quite unique idea considering the fact I haven't seen a concept thread like that in ages.

The map isn't finished yet, neither is the concept. This is still work-in-progress, when it's time to write down the missions, the upstate area of Liberty will have a role in the game as well. Thanks for the feedback.

I gotta admit, I love seeing a 3D Era GTA concept and I do love the 1950's setting.

 

I'm definitely going to keep my eye on this one.

Customisation

The physique mechanics make a reappearance. Your stamina, fat, strength, weapons skill and driving skill will increase throughout the game depending on how well you manage them. Managing your fatness and strength also returns but it's much less obnoxious compared to GTA San Andreas. You will not get obese from a single trip to Burger Shot or gain abs with a few hours of lifting. The progressions of these stats will be by 20% on the occasion just like in GTA V. Depending on your eating habits, as in what you eat, how often you eat it and how much of it you eat in a single meal you may get slightly overweight or skinny, as said before the progression will be increase or decrease by 20% after a while rather than slow and awkward like in SA. And depending on how often you visit the gym, your strength will increase or decrease by 20% every occasion. The rest works pretty much the same as GTA V.

As for clothing, it's basically the same. You buy them from stores and there's not much else to say.

Posting Services

As it is 1959, there's no way to order something by going across a few websites. People use good-old traditional snail mailing methods. Sometimes you can get mailed a prestigious magazine or a newspaper which you can choose to subscribe to, provided you can pay for it of course. Except for special orders from gun stores, this feature is mostly reserved for missions.

Letters

Some of the posts you receive may be letters as well. These letters will pretty much replace the email system of GTA IV but will have a significantly larger role. You got some news from your relatives in Palermo? You can choose to reply positively or negatively. But for storyline-related letters, your reply might shape and alter the course of the story to take a slightly different path.

Newspapers

Newspapers can be bought at any stand or store you may come across in the city. They replace the news websites from the HD universe and, similarly, have news stories that progress and get reported as you make progress in the game. Each issue have several pages of stories you can read through but the main and important ones -usually related to your actions and the story- will always be on the first few pages. There are several newspapers to choose from but the most prominent ones are The Liberty Tree and Liberty City News, the former takes an objective stance on stories while the latter tends to include exaggerations.

Magazines

Alongside newspapers you can also check out magazines. You can find one about pretty much anything. Celebrities, sports, cars, movies, the stock market. Most of them can be purchased for about $0.50 on average except for the one titled "Our Own Reality" - Being the most popular magazine across the, maybe the entire state or country, it costs a good $1.20.

Break-ins

With a crowbar, houses or stores can be broken-into at night and be robbed. It can also be used to pry open doors of locked, expensive cars. Using it will prompt a brief mini-game where you have to make swift, wiggly movements with the mouse and the movement keys. Your strength will also affect how well you operate a crowbar, making it faster or slower depending on your statistic. While this mainly serves for missions or side-missions, there's nothing stopping you from doing it in free-roam to mess around.

Odd jobs

Vigilante: To start the mission, you have to wait inside a police vehicle and listen to the dispatch. Occasionally the dispatch will report a crime nearby you, by pressing the action key you can take the dispatch call and start the mission. The missions will progressively get harder and harder as you pass levels. Upon passing 5 missions, 5 shotgun shells will now spawn inside police cars. On 10 missions, the mission will be passed and maximum armour will be increased by 50% and 12 revolver rounds will now spawn inside police cars. This is only optional and not required for 100% but passing level 20 will spawn 25% armour inside police cars, level 30 will raise that to 50%, level 40 will raise it to 75% and level 50 to 100%.

Paramedic: Paramedic plays out the same but you have to pay attention to the HRM and make sure the patient you drive doesn't flatline. If he does, however, you will have to stop the ambulance and press the action key in a timed sequence to re-start the patient's heart.  The reward is infinite sprint.

Firefighter: Aside from vehicles with people in it, you can now extinguish buildings too. For some buildings, spraying water from outside will not have enough effect prompting you to get out of the fire truck and use the hose or a portable fire extinguisher to get indoors of the said buildings and extinguish them close-up. The reward is immunity to fire.

Taxi Driver: Exactly the same as the previous instalments. Your required number of fares to pass is 50. The reward is: All taxis get improved handling (which includes hopping) and become bulletproof. And a Borgnine spawns at the Taxi Depot in Trenton.

Delivery Boy: Started by entering the Faggio at the Siciliano Restaurant. Complete 12 levels of deliveries and your health increases by 50%.

Trash Dash: Drive around the city collecting trash. When near a trash spot, back the truck up to the box and press the action key to load it up. The reward is: The Trashmaster you used during the mission becomes heavy and damageproof - Though it will only respawn if you achieve 100% completion so you better store it.

Import/Export: At the depot in Newport, there's a list of specific vehicles that you must steal and bring back. Each of these vehicles have an address near them and selecting them will mark them on your map. Though you don't necessarily have to use a marker. If you just happen to come across a car that's wanted by the import list you can just steal it there by approaching it with a crowbar and prying the door open. After delivering ten cars and all twenty cars respectively, the Hellenbach DT-405 and the Futuro will spawn near the marina.

Burglary: If you're inside a Benson at nights, you can rob houses and bring their furniture to a safe location to get a payout. First, make sure there are no alarms nearby. Alarms have to be disabled if you don't want police attention. Low-quality alarms can simply be pried off of their circuits with the crowbar. High-end ones, however, require you to use several tools together in a mini-game to disable them. After disabling the alarm you can now move on the door. To open the door, simply hit it with the crowbar to jam it in then make swift movements with your mouse to pry the door open. The rest plays out the same as in GTA San Andreas. After finishing five levels your handling of the crowbar will receive a significant boost.

Minigames, time trials and misc.

Hip-Burns: Checkpoint-sweep in Hepburn Park using a Mesa Beagle.

All Hands on Deck: Checkpoint-sweep in Atlantic Quays and the Portland Atlantic Depot using a Bobcat.

Sighting the Coastline: Checkpoint-sweep through the groves on the northern coasts of Staunton Island using a Camper.

88: Checkpoint-sweep through Francis International Airport using the Futuro.

Wichita Lift: Checkpoint-sweep near Cedar Grove using the Tropic.

Street Races: 3 in Portland, 5 in Staunton and 2 in Shoreside Vale.

Ram!: Get into the Trashmaster in Torrington and cause $2500 damage.

Woop!: Get into the Mr. Whoopee in Aspatria and destroy 15 cars.

Shooting Range: Complete all of the five shooting range challenges at Enrico's Artigliere.

 

Collectibles

Find all 100 opera pieces hidden around the city. Around the beginning of the game, you will get mailed a sole news story about a stolen composition, if you can find all pieces of the composition and mail them back to the sender, a new original opera song will be available on DCCR. Also several weapons will spawn at your safehouse after finding each 10.

Complete all 30 Unique Stunt Jumps.

Complete all 20 rampages.

HOW'S ANNIE?

This is a fanfic, so feel free to do whatever you want despite what anyone says. But don't you think some of your characters aren't really age appropriate for a 1959 setting? Mike Toreno doesn't strike me as being anything over 45 in 1992, meaning he'd be nine in 1959. Similar thing with Jane Hopper and Massimo Torini too.

 

But hey, nothing in canon solidifies their ages I guess. Maybe by the time SA and LCS roll around most of them are somehow youthful geezers.

You make a good point and I was aware of this while writing it. But most of these characters aren't elaborated or expanded upon. And Rockstar making brand new characters out of throwaway characters isn't something new, just like with Vic Vance or Jim FitzGerald. So you can think of it as something like that. The only one I was kind of doubtful about was Mike Toreno because I'm not sure he fits the atmosphere but I'll try to make it work and if it doesn't, I'll just replace him with a new character. My goal in this concept is expanding the lore of LCS that was not explained in LCS itself, that being:

Spoiler

"Torrini! I should've known." Salvatore implies he has known Massimo Torrini before and confirms that he had some sort of conflict with him.

 

"People [Jane Hopper] I personally fought for. Honest people." Salvatore implies there was a time where he and Jane Hopper were aged enough to have personal interactions of some sort.

This is what I based it on.

 

Appreciate the feedback!
