Grand Theft Auto: Badfellas

Recommended Posts

Francesco Bonomo
Posted (edited)

In collaboration with henrardwal and Doktorpolice




"What was once considered The Best City in America, Liberty City has downgraded to an alarming title of... The Worst City in America."

Liberty Tree - 1985

"If I ask you to kill, it's not a question."

Salvatore Leone - 1986


Theme Song


Liberty City in 1985 and 1986 was an American wasteland of vice, temptation, corruption, and greed. In the era where politicians were finally utilizing their power to fight against organized crime and business people were raking in millions using fraudulent methods in Staunton Island, Liberty City is still considered the biggest city in the world that never sleeps but does kill. In the criminal underground, there is unrest.

Follow the story of Lucio "Lucky" Goterelli. A seasoned veteran of the Clancio Crime Family in Salvatore Leone's crew. Witness Lucky go through many trails and tribulations as friendships break and betrayal is upon. Many bullets will be fired, a lot of blood will be spilled. 




Badfellas grants access to the upstate towns (Aaronsville, Christown, Adamton), the forgotten borough of Bellevue Island, as well as, the State of New Guernsey. Each with their own unique characteristics that you, the consumer, can enjoy and appreciate. 


Lucio "Lucky" Goterelli - 35 - A seasoned mafioso of The Clancio Crime Family with a long body list and even longer police record. A native of the mobbed up Saint Marks neighborhood, he grew up in the criminal element. With his father, Gaetano "Gigi" Goterelli being a fully inducted member of the family since the mid-1950's. He also considered Salvatore Leone as his uncle, and learned the way of the streets under him. He vows his loyalty to him and to his father.

Salvatore Leone - 50 - One of the Clancio's most reputable Caporegimes, Salvatore has been in the life since his early 20's working under Antonello Torini. With over two decades of experience under his belt, Salvatore has felt that he has been blacklisted for a long time. Ever since his conflict with his uncle and, now, boss of the family, Vittorio "Uncle" Leone in the late-50's, Salvatore hasn't progressed past the Caporegime rank. He is highly ambitious and does not plan to remain stuck much longer.

Vittorio "Uncle" Leone - 65 - Don of the Clancio Crime Family and uncle of Salvatore Leone. A long time loyal extension for the Old Country, Vittorio never felt the need to rule the family under the Leone name. Considered a traditionalist by many, he has looked towards modernizing the family with establishing a lucrative drug traffic network with the help of Massimo Torini.

Gaetano "Gigi" Goterelli - 55 - The Clancio's Consigliere and the father of Lucky Goterelli. Known to many as the gentle-hearted owner of Casa Storta Bakery in Saint Marks. He holds a notorious reputation as the family's hitman and enforcer since the late-40's. He is now a semi-retired man who lives a quiet life in Shoreside Vale and frequents the bingo hall. However, he still fulfills his duty as Consigliere.



Thanks to the Free Arms Act of 1975, Ammu-Nation gun shops have been established around the State of Liberty. But, there is a catch. They only sell handguns under the Senate's approval. Heavier weapons such as Shotguns, Semi and Full automatic weapons can be purchased in the black market. There are numerous contacts that provide exactly what you are looking all throughout the city. You just have to find them and make sure you are not followed.

I know that, map wise, Liberty City is gonna be similar to LCS, minus the Callahan Bridge. But, I don't think that the Porter Tunnel would even exist in 1985-1986. Maybe the second ferry lane featured in Harwood and Rockford ferry terminals won't lead to Shoreside Vale, but rather Adamton, one of the upstate towns that you added.


I'm pretty sure Luigi would initially live in the same apartment in Red Light District, Portland that would be inhabited by Claude in 2001. 


Aside from Luigi, Salvatore and their relatives, I have a feeling your concept will feature younger versions of characters from III and Liberty City Stories, such as Joey Leone, Ray Machowski (maybe he could be the one selling heavy weaponry in 1985 and is said to have legitimately fought in Nicaragua, unlike Phil Cassidy, who would run his own heavy weapons store in 1998) and maybe Ma Cipriani, with Luigi possibly working for Toni's father and Ma's husband, Mr. Cipriani. Perhaps Sonny Forelli from Vice City could make an appearance here. I'm sure one of the missions in 1986 will involve Salvatore and the rest of the Leone family celebrating Joey's birthday until someone is sent to assassinate Joey.

@Ivan1997GTA Thank you for map tips. I will surely implement them into my progression.


And as for the characters you mentioned, they will all make appearances in the storyline. The Introduction along with the first mission will establish the atmosphere.

Oh sh*t an III era concept! I hope you keep with it!

My only complaint so far, this early on, is how the game focuses, yet again, on the Leones. Why can't we play as one a Forelli? Crap! Oh well. Still can't wait to see how it plays out

@universetwisters I understand your complaint entirely. Which is why I’m going to add a lot of focus on the Forelli’s and the Sindacco’s as much possible. Salvatore’s takeover as Boss was always something that intrigued. And this is a continuation of @henrardwal GTA: Cosa Nostra, that tells the story of Salvatore’s origins in the Mob. I plan on making sure nothing gets left out.


@henrardwal Missions are coming real soon, my friend. Hopefully I can see more Cosa Nostra missions as well.


@Big Fat Paulie Thank you. I might just take you up on that offer. 

Update: Three missions will be posted today. Stay tuned. Thank you.

The Introduction


A news clip from 1985 begins playing. It shows a crime scene, a murder that occurred in Saint Marks. A dead body is seen laying on the street and is covered by a white sheet and laying in a pool of blood. Police have surrounded the entire scene. A news reporter narrates.


"Murder has become so common in our fair city. To most, it's a horrendous tragedy, each time. To some, it's a way of life."


Rockstar Games logo fades into the middle of the screen as the narrator speech becomes muffled. Then the sounds of a shotgun pump is heard, followed by the loud boom from its shot.The logo changes to Rockstar North logo. Then the screen fades to black.



The theme song, The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King begins playing and texts begin appearing.

Screen fades to black and the theme song finishes. The text “Portland, 1985” appears on the bottom left and the screen fades into the exterior of Mamma’s Restaurante. The next shot is inside, introducing Salvatore Leone having lunch with Mike Blundetto while discussing about their displeasure with Vittorio’s leadership as of late. Salvatore is seen eating Osso Buco alla Milanese with white wine. Mike is eating his favorite dish, Pasta alla Carbonara with a serving of Sangria.


Salvatore: I swear. sh*t is gonna hit the f*cking fan if the Old Man doesn’t stop kissing ass to the Old Country. It’s f*cking with us.
Mike: Tell me about it. You know your Uncle made me pay that cocksucker, Massimo, three points last week.
Salvatore: Why?
Mike: I offloaded some guns in Harwood. But the guys was working for Massimo. So because of that, I had to pay three points.
Salvatore: You got other businesses, right?
Mike: Yeah. Off the record, though. That’s the only thing that feeds me. Other than that, I’m losing money because of the kickbacks to the Sicilians. It’s unbelievable. Eventually, your Uncle’s gonna piss off the wrong person.
Salvatore: Yeah, but who would even try? He’s the most powerful man in Liberty City.
Mike: Doesn’t mean sh*t. Every man has his limits. I mean, he’s your family and look how he treats you.
Salvatore: Right. I just turned 50. I’m no longer a young man. Yet he still treats me like I’m still 25 following him around. I could’ve killed him back in ‘59. But I showed mercy. Yet I still get treated like sh*t.
Mike: He’s a disease, Sal.
Salvatore: I know. Let’s just let it go. We both took an oath. Let’s abide by it.


Outside of Momma’s, a Mafia Sentinel drives by and inside in the back seat, is Vittorio and Massimo speaking in Sicilian about business with the Forelli Family and their displeasure with Salvatores attitude.


Vittorio: The Forelli Family makes a strong proposal. A union between all families. Which sounds promising. What do you think, Massimo?
Massimo: The Forelli Family? This surprises me, Don. The Leone’s vowed to never make dealings with The Forelli’s after Alberico passed away. You really think his disrespectful son, Sonny, is talking peace or is it a set-up?
Vittorio: My God, you sound like my nephew. Doubtful of my decisions.
Massimo: I do not doubt you, My Don. I only state the precautions with Sonny’s brashness. He does not come from the same cloth as you and me.
Vittorio: I understand, Massimo. But trust me on this. Even if he plans on betraying me, he will rue the day he was born. It’s time things change. We need to make the proper adjustments. You understand?
Massimo: Of course.
Vittorio: Good. If all goes well like I planned, I’m going to be the Boss of all of Liberty City. And our beloved Sicily will finally have their pipeline to America.
Massimo: It’s not going to be easy, My Don.
Vittorio: Then I will kill everyone who gets in my way.


Vittorio’s car drives past Marco’s Bistro in Saint Mark’s. The camera pans towards the entrance and makes its way to the back room where Sonny Forelli is seen eating with his brothers Marco, Franco, Lips, and Giorgio, on a round table. The Forelli Brother’s are known as The Family’s Council. All brothers hold powerful ranks.


Sonny: So, the Old Man agreed to meet with us. Now all we need is Sindacco to give us his word, and we can proceed forward.
Lips: Paulie's busy counting his money in Venturas. He ain’t worried about us.
Franco: I gotta disagree with you, Lips. He’s been losing money the last couple of years. And losing his influence. So if he’s desperate, he’ll give us a word.
Sonny: That’s right. It’s just a matter of waiting.
Lips: Okay. How did you get the Old Man to agree?
Sonny: He’s looking for better business opportunities. He knows that we can accomplish a whole lot, money-wise, together. Him with his political influences and us with our connections with the other gangs. Not to mention, Sindacco's connections in Venturas. We literally can’t lose.
Giorgio: How long is this gonna last though? The Sindacco’s shouldn’t be a problem, but the Leone’s, they’re a totally different breed of crazies.
Marco: Gio’s got a point. The Old Man is too smart and too greedy to be united with anyone. How do we know he ain’t gonna turn on us the moment the opportunity pops up?
Sonny: Relax. You two worry too much. I got my own plans. And if it goes well, by this time next year, I’ll be the Boss of Bosses. No family will ever be more powerful than the Forelli’s. I bet my life on it. It’s time for a change.


Sonny’s cellular phones rings and he picks the up.


Sonny: Hello?

-Oh hey, we was just talking about you. You made a decision?


The camera will quickly zoom into the phone and zoom out from another phone being held by Paulie Sindacco, who is still laying in bed with his mistress, Dahlia Latore. The text “Las Venturas” appears on the bottom left.


Joe: Yes, I have. And I’m in. When will the meeting happen?
-Good. I’m looking forward to it.
-Alright, take care.


Joe hangs up and lays his head down on the pillow.


Dahlia: You okay, Baby?
Joe: Yeah. I’m just thinking, is all.
Dahlia: About what?
Joe: Whether this trip to Liberty City be my last or not.
Dahlia: What do you mean?
Joe: You know what I mean. I just agreed to a sit down with two people I've had problems with in the past.
Dahlia: Why did you agree, then?
Joe: Because I’m Paulie f*cking Sindacco. And I don’t f*cking run from anybody. That name still means something over there.

Dahlia: Of course, Baby. You do know you're the most important Boss, right? Whatever it is they're planning, they can't do it without you. So use that power. Forget about them. It's all about Big Dick Paulie Sindacco. Boss of Liberty City and Las Venturas.

Paulie: You just know the right things to say.


The couple kiss.


Paulie: I gotta get dressed. [Gets up and puts on a velvet robe] You still want your sister to move out here?

Dahlia: Yeah. If you can get her a job out here, I'll do a "job" for you.

Paulie: Hmm, I'll take you up on that offer. Tell her I can have a position open for her here at the casino by next month.

Dahlia: Really, Baby? Aw thank you so much.

Paulie: Anything for you, Sweetheart. I gotta go, but I'll see you later tonight.

Dahlia: Okay. I love you.

Paulie: I love you more, Sweet Lips.


Paulie starts walking towards the camera. The moment he walks past the camera, it’ll fade to black quickly, then fade out showing four men walking away from the camera towards an Italian shop. The text “Staunton Island” appears on the bottom left. 28-year-old Johnny Sindacco attempts to extort a mom and pop shop in Torrington with Bobby Caputo, Phil Mercandante, and Big Jimmy Peralta.


Johnny: How you doing, Mr. Parente?
Dino: Hello, Johnny.
Johnny: You remember Bobby, Phil, and Jimmy, right?
Dino: O-of course. Good evening, Gentlemen. Can I offer you a bottle of our finest wine? It’s a Vino Rosso, 1959. Let me go and get it for you.
Johnny: Mr. Parente, you know why we’re here.
Dino: Is Mr. Sindacco coming back to the city?
Johnny: That’s right. And he wants his due and proper.
Dino: Gentlemen, please understand. I haven’t made much money. Your father has been gone for many years.
Johnny: He gave you five free years, Dino. It’s time to pay for them. You know how much that is?
Dino: No, I don’t.
Johnny: Well, why don’t I let my friends show you.


Bobby and Phil hold Dino down as Jimmy takes money out of the cash register and hands it to Johnny.


Johnny: Now you owe us $4,348. We’ll come by every Friday to collect until the debt is settled. I hope I made that perfectly clear.
Dino: Y-y-yes you have, Johnny.
Phil: Call him Mr. Sindacco.
Dino: Yes, Mr. Sindacco!
Johnny: Good. I knew you’d see it my way. Take care, Mr. Parente. Let’s go boys.


They leave and walk to a phone booth across the street. Johnny calls his father.


Johnny: Hey, Dahlia. My dad around?

-Yeah, can you? Appreciate it.

-Hey Pop. How you doing?

-Everything's going alright. Mr. Parente sends you his best regards.
-Things are looking up for sure.
-We still doing that thing with Sonny?
-Whatever you say, Pop. I’m ready.



Johnny hangs up the phone, then the screen pauses for a quick second. Giving the player the idea that a picture was just taken. It will cut to a civilian Schyster Greenwood with two FBI agents, Donovan McLane and Tommy Lipari, watching the events that just occurred down the street.


Tom: They were only in there for only a few minutes. Then Johnny walks out and makes a call, then leaves. Probably a shake down.
Donovan: I’ve noticed him making more moves than usual. Collecting and whatnot from other people we have never seen.
Tom: Yeah. It’s strange. Somethings up and I bet it involves Paulie Sindacco making a comeback.
Donovan: You don’t think he’s coming back into town, do you?
Tom: I don’t see why he wouldn’t. It’s like Johnny and his crew of sh*theads are clearing the runway so Paulie can land safely.
Donovan: Maybe. It’s still a bit of a stretch.
Tom: True. But we can definitely build from that foundation.
Donovan: Lets just stay on Johnny. I got a feeling he’s gonna lead us to something big.


Tom Lipari takes his last drag from his cigarette and throws it out towards the sidewalk. The camera focuses on the cigarette until it lands on the sidewalk, then a black shoe is seen stepping on it. The camera pans up on the person, showing that this is a LCPD Cop on a beat. After zooming into the badge, the name McAffrey is shown. This is 29-year-old Officer Leon McAffrey from the 98th Precinct in Staunton Island. He is walking down the sidewalk of a busy street towards Johnny Sindacco, who is now in the passenger seat of a Dundreary Marbelle. Leon stops in his tracks right in front of Johnny’s window and pretends to tie his shoe while saying something to Johnny.


Leon: Two FBI agents have been watching you this whole time.
Johnny: What?
Leon: Seven cars back. Brown Greenwood. One drives, the other takes pictures. Watch yourself.
Johnny: Thank you. Who are you?
Leon: Leon McAffrey. 98th Precinct. I can help you out if the moneys good.


Johnny takes out a wad of cash and throws it on the ground near Leon’s shoes. Leon subtly picks it up.


Johnny: I appreciate it.
Leon: Tell your boys to lose the tail on Belleville. There’s a lot of detours because of the construction site. Best of luck to you.


Leon gets up and walks way. The rest of Johnny’s crew enters the car and they drive away and the brown Greenwood follows them. But the camera instead, pans into the driver seat of a Voodoo going the opposite direction. Introducing King Courtney. The leader of The Trench Posse from Bellevue Island. He is seen smoking a joint and listening to the soothing music of Gregory Isaacs, Hot Stepper. The camera stays on King as he drives to the ferry. Once he arrives, he parks his Voodoo on the ferry’s platform next to a red Remington belonging to his most loyal soldier, Matrix Elba. He rolls down his window and speaks to him.


King: Mi just speak wid di Lion. Him says wi need fi speak tuh a Jane Hoppa before bringing fi wi sh*t inna di city. Mek di propa arrangements. Mi wa fi get dis dun right away. Seen?
Matrix: Yea King. Dis Lion a guh gi wi protection?
King: Yeah him give mi fi him word. Says wen di time comes we’ll kno wah fi duh.


The camera zooms out and hovers above the city. Then slowly pans down to the inside of a black Emperor. The text “New Guernsey” appears on the bottom left. Inside the car are three men, Bobby and Gerry Corrado, sitting in the front and John Francari, Don of the New Guernsey Family, sitting in the back.


John: Bobby. How long til we get there? I don’t wanna be late.
Bobby: Another 15 minutes, Boss.
John: Good.
Gerry: Are you sure about this, Boss? This sudden meeting with the Micks just seems way too out of the blue.
John: They’re okay, more or less. That’s not my issue, though. It's these f*cking Spanish pricks. They're making a f*ck ton of cash selling coke and they ain’t giving us a piece of the action.
Bobby: It’s not like they like each other. The Colombians don’t get along with the Cubans. The Puerto Ricans hate the Dominicans. And the Mexicans? Fuhgetaboutit. They’re just as stressed as you, Boss.
John: Yeah, well. I got a plan. It's foolproof. In about six months time, I’m gonna run all of them. Guernsey will be Cocaine Central and those pricks from across the river will be begging to do business with me. It’s only a matter of time.
Bobby: Here’s hoping, Boss.
John: Call Kelly and tell him we’re close.
Gerry: But we’re not.
John: No sh*t, Genius. Tell them we’re close and we’ll sweat them out. So even if they are planning on flipping on us, we get them by surprise.
Gerry: You got it.


Gerry calls Danny Kelly, leader of The Clovers. Camera rushes to Kelly’s location, showing him standing in a warehouse with five other men.


Kelly: Yeah?
⁃ Okay, that’s great. See you soon, then.


Kelly hangs up.


Hugh: [Heavy Irish Accent] You sure about this, Kell? They might try to get one over on us.
Kelly: John is many things, but he’s not a traitor. He’s very careful though. Still, have everyone on full alert. I don’t wanna hurt him, but I will if I have to.
Hugh: You got it.
Kelly: And Hugh?
Hugh: Yes?
Kelly: Make a call to Flemmy. Tell him to go straight to the garage and wait for us there.
Hugh: Of course, Kell.


Hugh calls Flemmy from a landline. The camera zooms out, then back on to a man walking near Lutefisk (Now Chinatown) who receives Hugh’s call on his pager. He rushes to the nearest pay phone and calls back.


Flemmy: Hey, Hughey.
⁃ I’m by Lutefisk, right now.
⁃ Sure. I ain’t far.
⁃ I don’t have it, but I can get it from Sheen. It’s on the way.
⁃ Okay. I’ll see you boys there then.
⁃ Bye.

Flemmy hangs up and begins walking. He crosses the street on the red light and the camera focuses from Flemmy to the driver of a 1978 Willard Idaho who is listening to Keep on loving you by REO Speedwagon. Introducing Lucio “Lucky” Goterelli. The game’s Protagonist. He begins driving towards Trenton while the song continues to play. He makes it Atlantic Quays and parks in front of an office. He turns off the car as well as the music and goes inside and meets with LC Trade Union Leader, Jane Hopper. Who is in the middle of a phone call.

Jane: Well, I think we can come to an agreement. When will you be coming back to Portland?
⁃ That sounds good. Just pay me a visit here at Atlantic Quays. We can definitely work something out.
⁃ Thank you, Mr. Matrix. Give my best regards to Mr. Courtney.
⁃ Bye bye, now.

Jane hangs up.


Jane: Thank God for that Summer I spent in Jamaica back in ‘74 or else I wouldn’t have understood a damn word.
Lucky: Jamaicans?
Jane: Yeah. They wanna use the harbor to bring in some product. They made a convincing proposal. A lot of money. And they would only push it in Bellevue Island.
Lucky: So good all around, then?
Jane: Yes. Now how can I help you, Lucky?
Lucky: Just dropping off some money. It’s been a good week.
Jane: Oh perfect. Thank you.
Lucky: So the debt settled?
Jane: 100 percent.
Lucky: Great. I appreciate everything.
Jane: Anytime, Hon. You’ll always be in my good graces.
Lucky: Thanks. I’ll see you, Jane.
Jane: Take care, Lucky.


Lucky will exit the office and enter his car. After turning on the car, the music is interrupted by an emergency weather broadcast.


News: A devastating hurricane is making its way to Liberty City. We advise you to remain indoors until the storm is over. Until then, officials have decided to shut down all means of passage to other islands. It could be a good while until they open again, so please...


Lucky changes the station and The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King begins playing. Lucky drives away. The camera rises above the city showing all of the boroughs and New Guernsey and the title, Grand Theft Auto: Badfellas fades in on the center then the background fades to black.

Mission 1: Lucky

The screen focuses on Lucky driving his 1978 Willard Idaho through Portland along the Main Drag. During his drive, the camera focuses on various locations as Lucky drives past them while The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King is playing. The King Cuisine Restaurant (Now Punk Noodles) in Lutefisk (Now Chinatown), The Sweeny General Hospital, Saint Mark's Bistro, and The Duccio Hotel (Now Leone Casino).

In the streets, the people of Saint Marks greet Lucky as they recognize his car. He pulls into Mamma's Restaurante's parking lot and parks his car by the stairs. He turns off his car, but the music continues to play in the background as he walks towards the front entrance of the establishment. The restaurant's front patio is at full capacity with satisfied customers.

Lucky walks in the restaurant, the music changes to Nessun Dorma by Luciano Pavarotti. There is a line ahead of him. The Hostess, Katherine Pirri, notices Lucky standing behind the line and immediately orders the staff to clear him a table. The anxious people in line say nothing, they know who Lucky Goterelli is. The staff prepares a table for Lucky at his preferred spot, near the wine rack in the far corner. Lucky reaches into his jacket pocket and takes out a $20 bill and hands it to Katherine, gives her a wink, and thanks her. She takes the money while looking at Lucky with affection in her gaze, stuffs the money in her bra.

While walking towards his table, Lucky is greeted by many patrons, the bartender, and Ma Cipriani. Her real name is Teresa Cipriani and she has seen Lucky grow up. She is standing by Lucky's table holding a bottle of one of her finest wines. Lucky sits down and Ma immediately pours him some wine on a clear glass.

Ma: How you doing, Lucky?
Lucky: I'm good. I'll be better once I get some of your food in me.
Ma: What would you like?
Lucky: The Red Wine Steak smothered in onions and peppers.
Ma: Your favorite. Garlic bread and Marinara sauce?
Lucky: Oh, yes please.
Ma: [Smiling] It is my pleasure, Luck. I'll get that ready right away.
Lucky: Thank you, Ma. 

Ma Cipriani walks away to the kitchen. Lucky drinks his wine. Katherine, The Hostess, accompanies Lucky at his table.

Katherine: Hey, Lucky. Mind if I join you?
Lucky: Now why would I say no to that? By all means.
Katherine: Thank you. It's been such a long day. It's been packed all day.
Lucky: You must be stressed.
Katherine: I am. A nice massage could really calm my nerves.
Lucky: Well, some consider me good with my hands. Maybe I can help you.
Katherine: I would love that.

A waiter brings Lucky his food. Lucky thanks him and hands him $20. Lucky begins eating. The screen pans around the restaurant, showing its red interior as well as the full capacity of customers. An overall good and humble environment. Lucky finishes his meal and pays the bill. Wiseguys don't usually pay, but he has no problem paying. He leaves a big tip and gets up from his table. He walks to his car, before he enters, he takes out a cigarette from his jacket and lights it up. He looks over to the stairs and sees Katherine, walking his way. She enters the passenger side of his car. Lucky takes the last drag of the cigarette and throws it to the street. He also sees 17-year-old Toni Cipriani taking out the garbage from the restaurant. Toni looks at Lucky in awe. Lucky gives Toni a quick wink and enters the Idaho. Now you have control of Lucky.

Take Katherine Home

She lives in an apartment building in Saint Marks, just a few blocks away.

Katherine: Thanks for taking me home.
Lucky: It's no problem. 
Katherine: I don't understand.
Lucky: Understand what?
Katherine: I don't understand how people are scared of you. You're such a sweetheart. A very handsome sweetheart.
Lucky: Maybe I'm bad. I don't know.
Katherine: I like bad.
Lucky: Then you're gonna love me.

Once you arrive, both Lucky and Katherine will enter the apartment building. Lucky leaves a couple of hours later. He notices two teenage boys lore over his car. They are young Mickey "Hamfist" Dante and Joey Leone. They see Lucky and immediately stand at attention.

Mickey: We washed your car for you, Uncle Lucky.
Lucky: Thanks, boys.
Joey: I even took the liberty to check your car fluids. Car's pristine.
Lucky: I appreciate that, Joey. How's your father?
Joey: He's good. At the hotel right now.
Lucky: Good. I'll pay him a visit later on. [Reaches into jacket and pulls out $40. Gives $20 to each] You two hang on to that.
Mickey: Thanks, Uncle Lucky.
Joey: Yeah, thank you, Uncle Lucky.
Lucky: No problem, boys. Now where's my hot-head son?
Joey: He's at the hotel with my Pops.
Lucky: Alright. I'll see him too. I'll catch you boys later.
Mickey: See ya, Uncle Lucky.
Joey: Take care, Luck.

Make your Rounds

You are assigned to collect money from three establishments. PONS Clothing in Hepburn Heights, Panetierre in Saint Mark's, and Aiello & Sons Barbershop in Harwood.

You can go in any order you'd like.

[PONS Clothing]

Lucky walks in the shop and makes his way to the counter.

Lucky: Hi. Is Serge available?
Cashier: No, he's out. But he did leave you this. [Money] 
Lucky: Great. Tell him I said thank you.
Cashier: Not a problem, Mr. Goterelli.
Lucky: Please, call me Lucky. What's your name?
Cashier: Jackie.
Lucky: Well, Jackie. I hope I can see you again.
Jackie: Me too, Lucky.
Lucky: Take care.

Lucky leaves the shop.


Lucky walks in and is greeted by Old Man Guiseppe.

Guiseppe: Ah, Signore Lucky. How are you doing?
Lucky: I'm doing just fine, Guiseppe. I came here for the usual.
Guiseppe: But of course. Help yourself to some free Italian bread. My niece, Angela, will give you the money.
Lucky: Great. Thank you, Guiseppe.

Lucky picks up one loaf of Italian bread wrapped in plastic and makes his way to Angela.

Angela: The usual, Mr. Goterelli?
Lucky: Yes, please.
Angela: Here you go. [Hands Lucky money]
Lucky: Thank you, Angela. I appreciate this.
Angela: Always a pleasure, Mr. Goterelli.

Lucky walks out the shop.

[Aiello & Sons Barbershop]

Lucky walks in.

Lucky: Hey, Mr. Aiello. I'm here for the usual.
Aiello: Sure. Here you go. [Hands Lucky money] You want a trim, Luck?
Lucky: Maybe next time. I'm on a tight schedule.
Aiello: It's no problem. You're always welcome here.

Lucky leaves.

Now that all of the money has been collected. You are given a new objective.

Go to The Duccio Hotel

Make your way there and park in the front. You will see young Luigi Goterelli standing in front.

Luigi: Hey Pop.
Lucky: Hey, Luigi. You doing security for your Uncle Sal?
Luigi: Yeah. Easy $50.
Lucky: Not bad. Keep an eye on my car. I'll be right down.
Luigi: Alright, Pop.

Lucky walks in the hotel and takes the elevator to the penthouse suite. Once the elevator door opens, Lucky is greeted by Salvatore's personal security guard, Michael Blundetto.

Mike: Hey, Luck. Whaddya say?
Lucky: I'm alright. How you doing, Mikey?
Mike: I'd complain, but who'd listen?
Lucky: [Laughingly] True. Sal in there?
Mike: Yeah, in the kitchen with his wife.
Lucky: Thank you.

Lucky walks through the living room area, past the dining room area, and into the kitchen. There he sees 50-year-old Salvatore Leone and his wife Marisa Leone, cooking together.

Lucky: Happy Birthday, Uncle Sal! How you doing, Aunt Marisa.
Marisa: Lucky, hi!
Salvatore: Oh, there he is. Lucky Goterelli. Come here, give me hug.

The two share a hug. Salvatore kisses Lucky on both cheeks. A way of endearment in Sicily.

Lucky: And here's your gift. [Hands Salvatore the money he collected]
Salvatore: Always on time with your rounds. Thank you. You staying for dinner?
Lucky: I'd love to but Rose is expecting me tonight.
Marisa: Why not bring her here tonight? It is Sal's birthday.
Salvatore: Yeah, why not give it a try?
Lucky: Sure. I'll try.
Salvatore: Great! I'll set the table.
Lucky: Okay. You still need Luigi?
Salvatore: No, he can go. Someone called off so I figured I'll tell him. You okay with me giving him jobs?
Lucky: I'm fine with it. Luigi's tough. And it'd be nice for him to make his own money. By the way, I saw Mickey and Joey earlier. They washed my car and Joey checked my fluids. I was "visiting" a friend and they saw my car.
Salvatore: Was it that blondie from Ma's?
Lucky: Fuhgetaboutit.
Salvatore: That's my boy.
Lucky: Alright. Let me go get Rose. I'll see you later.
Salvatore: Sure. And, take this [$250]
Lucky: Thanks, Uncle Sal.

Lucky leaves the hotel and sees Luigi again.

Lucky: Luigi, get in.
Luigi: Okay.

Go to your Safehouse

The safehouse is located in long alleyway by Mamma's Restaurante. In this game, there will be a garage available in one of the empty lots. Next to the garage is the back entrance to the Goterelli's Residence.

Luigi: How was your day, Pop?
Lucky: It was okay. How was yours?
Luigi: It was okay. I'm working on something that can make us good money.
Lucky: Is it gonna get you in trouble?
Luigi: Not if I do it right.
Lucky: So what is it?
Luigi: When it's ready, I'll tell you.

Park your car in the garage, exit, then step on the marker to enter your safehouse.

Luck will enter his apartment, it is on the top floor. It is a nice sized apartment with two bedrooms, a large living room, and a modern kitchen. In the kitchen, is Rose Goterelli, Lucky's wife.

Lucky: Hey, Babe.
Rose: Hey, Hon.
Lucky: You gonna cook?
Rose: Yeah, why?
Lucky: It's Sal's birthday today. He wants us to go over for dinner. You wanna go?
Rose: I mean... I don't know if Luigi wants to go.
Luigi: Yeah, I wanna go. Please, Mom?
Lucky: You see?
Rose: You two can go. I'll stay in?
Lucky: Come on, Babe. You know Sal is gonna feel offended. Luigi, go get ready.
Rose: Why not take that blonde bitch from the restaurant. Or maybe that Puerto Rican whore from the Heights.
Lucky: You're really gonna do this? f*ck it. Luigi! Let's go.

Lucky and Luigi go out.

Go to The Duccio Hotel

Make your way back to Salvatore's suite.

Luigi: Mom okay?
Lucky: Yeah. She's just not happy with me right now.
Luigi: I just want you to know, Pop. I would have done it too.
Lucky: You would have done what?
Luigi: [Laughingly] I would have f*cked Katerine, too.
Lucky: Okay, let's not talk about this. Ever.

Once you reach the hotel, Lucky and Luigi will enter the hotel. Time will fast forward to after the dinner. Lucky will spawn will in front of the hotel.

Luigi: I'll walk home Pop. I'm gonna visit Jenny.
Lucky: Alright. Be careful.

I do apologize for that. To be perfectly honest, I was half asleep when I was working on the radio stations. I will make changes to it once I have time to myself.

Also, I find the lack of a hip-hop station kind of weird, considering that hip-hop music in New York was huge in the 1980s. Maybe you should consider making a 1980s version of Game Radio from GTA III, which would play similar music to Wildstyle and Fresh 105 from Vice City and Vice City Stories. Also, perhaps you should consider renaming some stations, like Aura 105 to Liberty Soul FM, and Sin City FM to WLLC "The Zone", something like that.
