A special thanks to @Francesco Bonomo for the inspiration and for helping with the project.


Theme Song: The Great Escape by John Cameron


When you think about the Bay Area in 1975, what comes to mind? The beautiful weather? The wild and free women? Or perhaps the incredible music scene that will forever be immortalized. Regardless of what your answer may be, there is only one true statement; a mess.

A rogue cop story in San Fierro, Detective Ray Vallard; an honest cop of the SFPD, is in hot pursuit of a notorious drug trafficker and murderer, Gerard DuBray. But when he had DuBray cornered and surrounded by fellow SFPD, he is betrayed by his own men and is shot and left for dead. At the hospital he is pronounced dead but really, he is put under a coma for an entire year. It is now 1975, Vallard has awoken and wants revenge.





Raymond Paul Vallard [Born November 3rd, 1940] is a San Fierro native from the Murfree-Brougham district. In 1959, he enlisted himself in the Army and was stationed overseas during the beginning stages of the Vietnam War. He returned to his State of San Andreas with an honorable discharge in 1962 and based himself in Los Santos. Started working as a Unionized Longshoreman at the Port of Los Santos but decided to pursue law enforcement years later. He graduated the Police Academy and became a sworn-in Police Officer for his beloved San Fierro in 1969. He was involved in the pursuit for The Gemini Killer that same year. By 1974, he had become a very prestigious officer and Detective for the SFPD. That is, until his unfortunate betrayal. Left on the cold asphalt with multiple gunshot wounds on a rainy night, he would be put into a coma for the next year. When he awakens and gathers his strength, he embarks on a revenge mission against those that betrayed him and Drug Kingpin, DuBray.


Ray drives a 1970 Bravado Gauntlet and carry's a loaded Combat Revolver.


The Character List will be updated as the story progresses.



San Fierro

"Oro en Paz, Fierro en Guerra."

"How can I describe San Fierro in '75? One word... Mixed. The whole city is a melting pot of every seasoning in existence, it seems. Whatever you fancy, you can find it in San Fierro. Just gotta know where to look. It may sound like a wonderland to hippies and the gays, and in a way, it is. However, for a cop, it's a f*cking nightmare."




Andreas Bay

"Love to live and live life"

"Andreas Bay is moreso like San Fierro's Cousin. Everyone's had that one cousin that always tries to one-up you. Well, that's Andreas Bay. It is a beautiful city. Visually pleasing. But, it suffers from identity crisis. It tries to look like San Fierro but doesn't want to be compared to San Fierro. No one will ever truly understand Andreas Bay... just like San Fierro."

Needless to say, we kept our broke asses in San Fierro. Sometimes I ask myself, what would it have been if we moved there when we wanted? Well, that sh*t's over."

"Small town U.S.A. at it's best. A nice escape from the city bullsh*t. Not my kind of place, though. But if I make it to old age and retire, you can find me in a nice home in the Sun View neighborhood... But please don't visit me, I will shoot."

"Again, it's a prison. The f*ck else you want to know about it? That it's Hell on an earthly island between San Fierro and Andreas Bay. Just pray you don't end up in there."



"The City where the Moon shines brighter than the Sun."

"Our Vinewood, away from Vinewood. There isn't a single complaint I have about Trujillo; other than I hate the drive there. I gotta either drive north through Bayside and get pulled over for no reason, or drive through Andreas Bay and Port City where I will definitely get pulled over. f*ck it. It's almost worth it."

STRANGLEHOLD features four cities and small towns. Each with their own Police force. Apart from their jurisdiction, you can tell them apart from their patrol car. But they all react differently to criminal activity.


San Fierro Police Department
Patrol Car
For the most part, they're fair. But since it has been corrupted recently, there's been a change in protocol when it comes to drugs. For instance, any low-life dealer trying to sell anything on DuBray's turf, best believe that SFPD will come and give you a rough lesson in repercussions. But DuBray's dealers have full protection from the police.


Andreas Bay Police Department
Patrol Car
We call them "The Dirty Dozen." Mainly because it seems like its always the same 12 officers on the streets. Don't get it twisted, they are a rough bunch. Their main focus is gang activity and The Black Panthers. Drugs do flow through the Andreas Bay streets. But to them, the real poison are the African-American gangs and the Black Panthers, who aren't even a gang.


Port City Police Department
Patrol Car
Being a police officer for PCPD gotta be a walk in the park. No crime ever happens in Port City. But it's because of that, they respond with haste to any disturbance. They are very hostile to outsiders. So be careful. Sometimes I think Port City is a Sundown Town. I hope not.


Trujillo Police Department
Patrol Car
Pretty much, Marines with Police Badges. They take protecting Trujillo very seriously. If you get pulled over and they ask you what your business is in Trujillo, you better have your story straight. Or else, You get to enjoy a weekend in a Trujillo jail, which is home to Captain Micah Umberland. With him, either you're gonna get f*cked up, or you're gonna get f*cked... He holds quite a reputation.


Cano County Sheriffs Department
Patrol Car
The small towns of Cano County are all under one department. They're pretty friendly and understanding. But if it's one thing they look forward to, is a hot pursuit on the dirt roads. They love giving high-speed chases. Real Southern Style. 



"Nevermind what the post cards show in those fruity pictures of the Bay Area, gangs and organized crime syndicates have all made themselves at home here. Just know what neighborhoods to avoid, and be very careful who you piss off. You never know who knows who."


Caffaro Crime Family - San Fierro's own Mafia Family. They run most of Northern San Fierro. From Angler Pier to Cabrera Heights, it is under Cosa Nostra control. Normally, they're not hostile outside of their turf. But they will, in fact, protect their neighborhoods by any means necessary. Their boss is Santino Caffaro, the son of Gaetano Caffaro who formed this mafia family in the 1930's. Santino does a good job running the family. They generate a lot of money and they fly below the radar.


The Yakuza - A small Japanese syndicate out of Japantown. You don't hear a lot from them but they do run a round-the-clock betting station on Mercury Street. That's their biggest money maker and their most secured. Tough sons-of-bitches, they are. No one knows who runs them; but whoever does, lurks in the shadows. Very secretive.


The Triads - The Chinese are a rough bunch of gun-toting Cowboys. Chinatown, their homebase, is split between two Triad factions. There's the Shadow Boy's from Gary Street in the Northern part of Chinatown, and there's the Wei Sing Tongs from Oak Street in the Southern part of Chinatown. After requisitioning half of the businesses, the Wei Sing Tong also have a crew operating in lower Kreischer Hill.


La Rifa - A gang of Northern Mexicans from the Valenciano district. A gang that started in the Soledad State Prison in the 60's, quickly turned Valenciano into a gang stronghold. They identify themselves by their verbal codes and a small tattoo on their right hand. This gang is highly organized and they sell marijuana in large quantities throughout the city and beyond. They haven't had any violent events happen lately, so they haven't attracted a lot of police attention. For now.


Angels of Death MC - There are two chapters in the Bay Area. AoDMC San Fierro in Murfree-Brougham and AoDMC Andreas Bay in Eastside Bay. One of the biggest Motorcycle Clubs in America, and one of the most violent. They run almost the entire market for Uppers and Downers in the Bay Area. Not friendly to outsiders.


The Black Vanguard - What was supposed to be an empowering movement for Black People, turned into a criminal group of killers. In San Fierro, they call the Coltrane District home. In Andreas Bay, they call the Oscar Grant District home. The two factions seem to have a slight beef towards each other. But for the most part, their enemies are the San Fierro Rifa.


Beacon Point Gangs - Beacon Point is split up by two gangs that fight each other constantly.

  • Brick House Gang - Located on the Easternmost region of Beacon Point at the Highland Projects on Hayward Street. You notice them walking around with red sashes somewhere on their person. That indicates they are Brick House Gang members.
  • North Beacon Butchers - Located a few blocks north of Highland Projects. This gang has been around since the 1940's at the Great Andreas Projects on New Street. Their insignia is a patch of two meat cleavers crossing each other at an X form behind the letters NBB. No colors.


"Whoever says that guns weren't used a lot because we were men and men fight with their fists, is a f*cking bullsh*t liar. You can find guns literally anywhere in the city. The government outlawed the legal ownership of guns in 1968, but changed the law a little bit in 1975. If you're licensed, you can buy and own a pistol or revolver. Nothing else. Thanks for nothing, President Dorcester. Now, if you wanna buy a real weapon, find the right guy in the streets [i.e. whether he drives a van or has a backroom shop] and get yourself some real firepower."

"The Bay Area is an open bar of vehicles. Any type of vehicle you're looking for, you'll definitely find it. If, and only if, you know where to find it. If you wanna steal a car, go ahead. I only recommend you be smart about it. Change the plates and the vin number. There are plenty of chop shops in the Bay Area that will do that for you. For a price, that is."

"The fashion back in '75 was unforgettable. Bell-Bottoms and loose shirts was mainly what the younger kids were wearing. And the hair? All over the place. Long hair and afros. You imagine it and it was a style in the Bay Area in '75. Of course, there were the older gentlemen that wore suits and ties along with their respected fedora's. Then there's guys like me, right in the middle. I wore a lot of turtlenecks and button-up's back in those days. Even rocked a beard. The Bee Gee's were very popular and everyone grew a beard. I remember platform shoes. What a mistake that was. How anyone wore those to the disco's is beyond me. The only people that wore black was the Mafia. No one else wore black apparently. At least that's what I heard anyway."


STRANGLEHOLD features numerous clothing stores throughout the Bay Area. There are different classes, however. They all depend on where the clothing store is located. For instance, if you visit Mathers in Murfree-Brougham, you will see affordable clothes but their Face Levels will be low. Face Levels determine your bonus after completing missions and stunts.

Another example, if you visit Ponsonby's in Middle Port City, they are way more expensive than Mather's. But, you will receive bonuses after completing missions and stunts.


Keep in mind, there will be some missions that can only be accessed if you are wearing the required clothing. It can range from Casual to Executive. Be sure to start a collection of outfits in your wardrobe.


You can access your wardrobe from your safehouses and other clothing stores you have shopped from. The only difference from the Safehouse and Clothing Store wardrobe is: You have access to all your clothing in your safehouse. Whereas in the clothing stores, aside from purchasing new clothes, you can only gain access to your saved Outfits at no additional price.


You can change your hair style and facial hair. STRANGLEHOLD adopts the same barbershop system from Red Dead Redemption 2 but with more customizable options. In your safehouse, you can alter your appearance, if you'd like. You will have limited options, though. You can comb your hair, trim your beard, shave entirely, cut your hair entirely, etc. But the real options can only be accessed from the barbershops.


Jewelry can also be purchased. Watches, Chains, Rings, Etc.





"The 70's was a great time for music. I experienced my 20's in the 60's and I thought music was great back then. But 1975 was a golden year for music, that's for sure."

"Vinewood is a well-greased machine of entertainment. And in 1975, it continued creating masterpieces. Ever since Our Family came out in 1972, more and more mob and crime movies have been coming out. It's all very entertaining, but now we have a lot of Mob wannabe's on the streets embarrassing themselves. Depending on the theater, the ticket prices will vary. To put it simply, the cheapest theater is The Avenue Theater located in the Eltoncury district. Cheap tickets but sh*t quality. The most expensive, is The Zorro Theater in Uptown Andreas Bay. You pay damn-near $20 for a ticket but you can't deny that the experience is well worth it."

"When you have a moment to yourself in the comfort of your home, turn on your television and enjoy some great American programs. It's free and you can watch it  anytime you want instead of waiting in line for a ticket. I personally love watching Stiller and Wilson. Now that's an American classic in the making."

The choice of typeface reminds me a lot of Driver. Would love to see how the aesthetic develops with time. The protagonist sounds pretty epic, though he feels pretty derivative of Tanner imo, albeit with a Zodiac Killer twist.


Looking forward to the story, gameplay, soundtrack and cars. Do tag this as a concept thread if you can.

MISSION ONE: ...In the Line of Duty


At the bottom left of the screen, the following text below will be typed in (you can hear the typewriter) into the screen

San Andreas Street

Kreischer Hill, San Fierro
February 8th, 1974
Night - 10:23 PM
Heavy Rain


The camera pans slowly westward towards Route 212 in silence. Then the sounds of far-away police sirens are heard getting closer. Suddenly, a red 1975 Revolter races past the camera, heading eastbound on San Andreas Street, with multiple SFPD Patrol Cars in hot pursuit. The Revolter swerves left and right, avoiding the traffic and the street trolley. At the same time, the SFPD are losing grip of the chase and crash. Some remain, many are left behind.


Inside the Revolter, we see The Driver focused on losing the pursuit and in the passenger seat is another man. The Driver is seen wearing casual clothing, whereas The Man is seen wearing an expensive suit. Though it is disheveled, it is still a nice suit.


The Man speaks with a thick French accent towards the Driver.


"Take Sing Avenue!"


The Driver rips a left turn into Sing Avenue. The camera (in slow-motion) zooms into the rear license plate of the Revolter showing-




The Revolter red-lines down Sing Avenue heading North. The Man notices that The Driver has lost the pursuit.


"Ha! You lost them. Bon Travail! (Good job!) Now, get us to the docks."


The camera now faces the Revolter from the hood, showing what's behind them. From Kings Street, a black 1970 Bravado Gauntlet drifts onto Sing Avenue and pursues the Revolter. The Man reacts-


"Merde (sh*t). It's him. Stay focused."


The Man grabs a Combat Assault Rifle from the back seat, takes aim at the Gauntlet, and fires. As the bullets fly towards the Gauntlet, the camera zooms into the Driver's face. Meet Detective Ray Vallard (Clean shaven). A skilled Driver. He swerves out of the line of fire while still maintaining speed. The camera will display a beautiful shot of Ray's Gauntlet drifting in the rain in slow-motion.


On the hood of the Gauntlet, the text-




being displayed as neon signs reflecting upon the hood.


Ray reaches for his Radio-


"This is 11-King in hot pursuit of DuBray. He's heading Northbound on Sing Avenue towards Thespian. Suspect is armed and dangerous."

"Roger that, Detective."


Back in the Revolter, The Man, now identified as DuBray, yells a commands towards The Driver.


"You lose him. If he gets me, you will not live to see your trial. Comprende? (Understand?)"


The Driver, visibly nervous, nods yes. His demeanor changes when he notices a police blockade up ahead. DuBray reacts-


"Putain de merde! (Holy sh*t!) Turn, hurry!"


The Driver rips a right turn, drifting into Ocean Avenue to avoid the blockade. Ray follows suit and maintains the chase. Ray takes out his Combat Revolver, takes aim towards the Revolter from his driver-side window, and shoots.


The camera zooms very close to the bullet showing it in slow-motion. While spinning-




Is seen carved into the bullet. Soon after the title is fully spun, camera zooms out and the slow-motion ends. That bullet kills The Driver by striking him in the back of the head after impacting the rear windshield.


DuBray, in a panicked state, quickly grabs the wheel and kicks the Drivers corpse out of the car.


"Come on, Vallard. Just you and me, now!"


The camera now positions itself behind Ray's Gauntlet. The HUD's will appear on the screen on the corners. On the center of the screen-




Now you, The Player, have control of Ray.


Catch DuBray


You are given an objective and you must complete it. Throughout the game, you will be given numerous objectives for all missions. You are now driving the Gauntlet. It is a very powerful and heavy vehicle. Keep in mind, the streets are still very much still populated and the rain is dropping hard. Be very careful with your next moves.


DuBray will drive down Ocean Avenue, which is one-way, and will later on turn left onto Bowery Street heading Northbound, which is another one-way. Avoid the oncoming traffic as much as you can. You don't want to lose the pursuit.


At the end of Bowery Street is Pier 66 in the Angler Pier District. DuBray will turn left and there you will be accompanied by other fellow SFPD Patrol Cars. There is another blockade ahead of DuBray, he turns right into the pier. Ray sees this as the end of the road


"I got you now, DuBray."


The pier is a dead-end. No escape for DuBray. Ray has been chasing him for an entire year. And now is his chance to close this case, once and for all.

The camera shows the Revolter speeding down the pier but brakes very abruptly after noticing that this is the end of the road. And behind the Revolter is Ray Vallard along with multiple SFPD Officers. He is cornered. Ray and the other Officers exit their vehicles and position themselves behind their open driver-side door with their guns aimed at the Revolter. Among the Officers is Captain John Benson. He commands DuBray to exit the vehicle.


"DuBray! You are surrounded. Throw your weapon out of the car, now!"


His Combat Assault Rifle is seen flying out of the window.


"Now, exit the vehicle with your hands up!"


DuBray slowly exits the Revolter with his hands raised, complying with Benson's order.


"Cuff him, Vallard."


Ray approaches DuBray. This is their first time being this close. DuBray displays a smile on his face as Ray cuffs him.


"You find this amusing?"


DuBray takes a deep breath in and exhales with-


"You'll see very soon... Detective Vallard."


Captain Benson holsters his gun and commands most of the officers to disperse the scene.


"I want everybody to go and secure the perimeter! Keats, Copeland, and Dominguez please remain here."


The area is cleared leaving only a select few at the scene. Ray questions this unorthodox protocol.


"Captain, what the Hell is this?"
"Relax, Vallard. Everything is going exactly to plan."
"What plan?"


Benson approaches DuBray and uncuffs him. DuBray lets out a deep exhale of relief and massages his wrists. Ray sees this and reacts.


"Benson, what the f*ck?"


Benson remains silent. DuBray, with a menacing smile, speaks.


"This is what I find amusing, Detective Vallard. In fact, I find this, uhh how you say... Theatrical."
Captain Benson- "This is business, Ray. You'll understand."


Benson walks to Officers Keats, Copeland, and Dominiguez.


"Keats, I need you to take DuBray to the pick up point in the boat. Copeland, you go with them. Dominguez, get in contact with your cousins and start offloading the sh*t."


As Benson continues talking to the corrupts officers, DuBray makes his way to a small boat that's docked. Ray, angry at the situation, approaches DuBray from behind. He strikes DuBray in the back of his head with the butt of his revolver, making him fall head-first into the boat; leaving him unconscious. Ray hops into the boat, starts it and accelerates out of the dock. Benson, Keats, Copeland, and Dominguez shoot at Ray.


Once again, you have have control of Ray.




You have a large body of water ahead of you. You don't have a set destination as of yet. You must rip through the violent waters of the San Fierro Bay. Keep in mind, the weather is still very rainy and windy. At the same time, avoid the SFPD Boats that will be coming after you.


DuBray will wake up, Ray will automatically aim his revolver at DuBray-


"Where's the pick-up point?"
"Qu'est-ce que c'est que ça? (What the f*ck is this?)"
"The pick-up point. Benson mentioned it to Keats and Copeland. What was he talking about?"
"[Laughs] This is very bold move, Vallard. You've killed yourself, just now."


Ray strikes him in the face with the revolver.


"Tell me, now!"
"[Breathing heavy] A port in Bayside. My associates will be waiting there to take me away."
"Then let's not keep them waiting."


You will be equipped with a Combat Assault Rifle and a Combat Shotgun, as the boat was fully equipped with weapons. Now, you will be given a destination.


Head to Ferry Pier, Bayside


You don't want to kill fellow Officers. But you can shoot the motors and cause gasoline to spill, causing the boats to turn off.


Once you arrive at Ferry Pier, a total of 13 armed men will be there.


Ray will grab DuBray by his shirt and get on the dock. Ray positions DuBray in front of him while pressing the revolver to the back of his head. He whistles to get the men's attention. They respond by aiming their weapons at Ray.


"Were you waiting for this man? Huh?"


There is silence.


"As you can see, it's not going to plan. So let me make this clear. [Cocks the revolver] This can end one of two ways. And if you're smart, you'll choose the easy way. Otherwise, they'll be a lot of you not going home to your families tonight. So what will it be?"


They don't respond.


"What will it be!?"


They still don't respond.


"You're choice."


Ray spins DuBray around and shoots him in the chest. DuBray goes down, his associates take position and fire at Ray. Ray takes cover behind a wooden crate.

You have control of Ray.


Kill the Mercenaries


This will be considered a tutorial on gunfights.


Ray has military training so he has control over his breathing and his movements. You can maneuver from cover to cover. You can enter precision mode with any weapon. You have to option to dual wield two handguns, and two shotguns. Throughout the storyline, you can upgrade Ray's skills so you reload quickly, seek ammo quickly, etc.


Once the fight is over-


Ray looks around the scene with an emotionless expression. He notices a trail of blood where DuBray corpse should be.


Follow the Blood Trail


Throughout the storyline, there will be sequences where you will have to investigate certain areas and collect clues. [Like L.A. Noire].

While following the trail, you will see indications floating mid-air, showing the location of clues. The clues found are:


Gold Ring
Size 11 Foot Print
Revolver Bullet Casing


Each clue found, Ray will make a mental note of it.


At the end of the trail, Ray will see DuBray limping his way to a SFPD Patrol Car; assisted by Officer Copeland. It is revealed that DuBray had on a bulletproof vest on. But he was shot in the right leg, which explains the blood trail.


Ray gets cornered by the corrupt SFPD Officers as they have their guns aimed at him. Captain Benson exits his vehicle, lights a cigarette, and gives the order-


"Kill him."


The officers shoot Ray numerous times. Life escapes his body with each bullet penetrating him. He falls to the ground. 


Copeland talks to Benson.


"What do we with him, Captain?"
"We have any of the brown handy?"
"Yeah. Why?"
"Inject him with a good amount and call it in. We stopped a Heroin-crazed cop gone rogue. It'll look good for the news."
"Yes, Sir."


Camera zooms in on Ray's eyes and slowly fade to black.


Flashes of newspaper clippings and news reels appear on the screen talking about an unnamed cop with a heroin addiction causing a string of crimes throughout San Fierro, being shot down on a rainy night in Bayside. He is confirmed Dead on Arrival. Scrren goes back to black and the following text appear being typed in on the bottom left of the screen. 


Kint Port City Field Hospital
Middle Port City, Port City
July 4th, 1975
Day - 9:44 A.M.


It is now a year later, you are in a different setting.


Listen to what the Man Said by Sir Paul McCartney and Wings is heard playing from a small radio in a hospital room. The camera pans around this small hospital room, showing our Protagonist, Ray Vallard, in a comatose state. His hair and beard has grown tremendously. A young nurse enters the room-


"Okay, Mr. Froman. Let's welcome some sun into this room, shall we?"


She opens up the curtains, showing the beautiful weather.


"How about some music, Mr. Froman?"


She increases the volume of the radio as the song finishes and fades out. After the song ends, the DJ for the radio station gives a daily news update.


"That was what the man said, according to Sir Paul McCartney and his band, Wings. A massive hit from the U.K. flooding the American airwaves. Here at Amber Strait Radio, we keep the good vibes going. But for now, some news from the beautiful city of San Fierro. It was reported that the new Chief of Police has been sworn into his office just moments ago. John Benson, who served as a Captain for the SFPD for many years, will now bestow upon San Fierro a great service as the new Chief of Police. Congratulations, Chief Benson. And now, back to the vibes. Here's Killer Queen, by none other than the eccentric phenomena from the U.K., Queen."


As Benson's name is heard from the radio, Ray's heartbeat increases until he becomes responsive for the first time in over a year. The Young Nurse, who had exited the room earlier, walks back in to check on Ray. But gets startled when hearing Ray speak for the first time.


"[Weak] Benson. Copeland."


The Nurse rushes out of the room to call in the doctor. The Doctor comes in-


"Eliane, make the call. Hurry!"


The Nurse runs out of the room, the doctor leans closer to Ray.


"Mr. Vallard, can you hear me?"
"[Weak] Where am I?"
"You're in Kint Hospital in Port City. I'm Dr. Alan Reid."
"[More collected] How did I get here?"
"You were brought in by a friend. You've been in a coma since February of last year."
"What's today?"
"4th of July, 1975. You were out for over a year."


Nurse Elaine comes in-


"Doctor, he's here. He was already coming in to visit, Mr. Froman."
"Good. Bring him in."


Moments later, a Man walks in.


"Hey Doc, how is he?"
"He's responsive."
"Good. Let me have a moment with him."


Dr. Reid leaves. The Man sits on a chair next to Ray. This Man is Private Investigator Michael Porter, a close friend of Ray's.


"Hey Ray, you finally made it back to Earth?"
"Porter? What are you doing here?"
"I was the one that brought you here."
"It's a long story. But nevermind that. You're back and that's all that matters. Now you just focus on getting your strength back and we can get your out of here."


Ray looks out of the window and thinks about that fateful night that out him in a coma. While breathing heavy, he mutters-


"Benson. Keats. Copeland. Dominguez... DuBray."
"Try not to talk about them. It's not gonna bring any good."
"Get me out of here, Porter."
"I think it's too soon for that. You just woke up after sleeping for a year."
"Now, Porter!"
"I guess we can rule out the Strip Club celebration. Okay, then, Let's go."


Porter helps unhook Ray from the machines and the IV. Then he helps Ray get up on his feet. He is still very weak in the legs and requires Porter to keep him up. Porter helps walk Ray to his car, which is parked in the lot across the street from the hospital. Porter drives a Black 1967 Declasse Impaler Sedan. He helps Ray get into the passenger seat. And yes, he still has the hospital gown on. 


Porter starts his car and drives off and makes his way to his residence in Roxbury, Andreas Bay.


"What happened, Porter?"
"You know what happened. Keats, Copeland, and Dominguez turned you into swiss cheese."
"I mean after that. How were you able to get me to Kint Hospital in Port City. I would assume I was under Benson's custody."
"I have my ways. Let's just say I heard about you turning loco at Angler Pier and kept listening. Benson already ordered EMT's to Ferry Pier. Almost like he knew you were gonna be there."
"He did."
"You wanna tell me what happened that night or I am gonna have to get you drunk first?"
"[Laughs] Real charming, Porter."
"I try. Now back to business."
"What business is that?"
"You. What are you gonna? You're a free man."
"A free man?"
"Yeah. Everyone who wanted you dead, thinks you're dead. So what now? You gonna take your family and move to Venturas like you said you wanted to do?"
"I'm going after Benson."
"Wait, what? Did you say suicide?"
"And Copeland, Keats, Dominguez. And most importantly, DuBray. I'm taking all of them down."
"Why? Because they shot you a couple times? Why not just retire and write a memoir like everyone else?"
"Before I almost got DuBray, Helen divorced me."
"I know, I remember. So?"
"All I had left was this case. It kept me busy. Kept my mind off the divorce. And they took that away from me. Tried to kill me, and let DuBray loose. I can't just start over and live a new life. Not before I take theirs."
"These are Police Officers we're talking about. And Benson is the new Chief of Police for SFPD. Untouchable."
"I was a cop once. I wasn't untouchable. So this makes no difference to me. So either you're with me or you're not. No one's got a gun to your head."
"Well that's not far. I'm the best friend so yeah, I'm with you."
"I know."
"Wow. Such a dick move. Anyway, here we are."


They arrive at Porter's residence in Roxbury. A beautiful Old-Style Home built in 1911. 


"Nice place. I don't how a douche like you can afford this on a Private Investigators salary."
"Was that a joke? I can't tell. You know I come from a rich family."
"How can I forget? [Sarcasm] The Porter Family, one of the original founders of Andreas Bay."
"Has it's benefits. Come on."


Porter leads Ray into the home. It has a mesmerizing interior.


"Make yourself at home. You can have the guest bedroom upstairs. And help yourself to whatever clothes I have in my closet. Whatever fits. What have they been feeding you in there?"
"Wish I knew. Thank you."
"Don't mention it. Remember, I'm the best friend. Get yourself cleaned up. We have a new day tomorrow."

Make your way to your Room


Once you head upstairs, your room will be the first door on the right. Porters will be the last door on the left. Head to his room to grab a change of clothes. Which will be a Jean Button-up shirt with a  wide-collar, a black pair of slacks with bell-bottoms,  and a pair of brown leather casual shoes.

In order to complete this mission, you must head to your bed, which is also how you save your progress. Save your game and your hours will forward 6 hours.


Mission Complete


You have unlocked a new mission and a new safehouse in Andreas Bay. You have full access to the STRANGLEHOLD map. There are no map restrictions. Just know that if certain police officers see your face, it will automatically get your 3 stars on your wanted level.

When it comes to San Fierro, I prefer the Late 1960s since that's when the counterculture movement and all the stuff was at it's peak and it was in major decline by the mid 70s especially with the Vietnam war being over, but this is still an interesting concept for sure as the 1970s haven't been done much sadly

Interesting selection of cars, though I feel better names could have been used for some of them. For the Dirty Harry vibe you're going for the first mission fits the aesthetic to a T. A somewhat strong start, but I think the language could be a lot more crass. It is the mid-70s, after all.


If I could offer critique, I would say that the radio stations could use a bit of a remodeling. Can't say I'm a big fan of the music in general, they feel ripped straight off the billboards with the typical 70s fare like Lady Marmalade and Never Can Say Goodbye. A number of the stations feel sort of redundant as well, and I don't why you shouldn't just merge them together into one continuous station, not to mention some of them being kinda unfitting to this Driver-ish depiction of San Fierro you're going for. I think it might be a good idea to cut back on the number of stations and simply just stick to a strong few stations that each have their own unique and memorable identity. The soundtrack for the 70s Era of Driver: PL is a good place to start digging for some awesome tunes.


Anyway, good work. I kinda want to see the activities section get filled up next.
