Needless to say, we've thought about it for a fair amount of time. We've thought about what we could do RP wise, both legal and illegal, and we have a mental roadmap of what we want to do. Now, if we achieve it or not, is up to the RP situations we get involved in and the character/faction/group development we achieve. We thought of a triad because, like @PlayerX said, we were inspired by 'Sleeping dogs'. However, we are open to any suggestions and ideas and even open to change the whole mindset for something that could provide the same or similar RP we are looking for. This doesn't mean the idea is weak, but if it can't work out, maybe another kind of group/faction will, only time will tell, so we are open to change based on that.
I'll gladly hear your suggestions and ideas to make something better. I'm always up for improvement and better RP after all, so all opinions are welcome!
On another note, we don't want people to RP for the faction only. We want them to RP for themselves (as we don't want to make being a member a chore), and also providing a group they can rely on if needed and use it as a "social hub" where they can hang out with other members and stuff like that. We'll try to provide jobs, interesting RP and other RP oportunities to the people willing to join us and try to make the best out of it, as well as we expect them to bring RP oportunities and situations to themselves and develop their characters accordingly with those situations.
By creating another chinese gang, it doesn't mean we don't like other factions/gangs RP or style. We just wanted to run a faction at least once instead of just being a member of an already existing one. Based on these reasons we decided to make a thread to look for participants. We don't know how much time we or anyone else will have to play, and we for sure don't know how this is going to develop down the road. For this reason, we are aiming for a smaller scale at the moment. We're not looking to make it an official faction as of yet. We're just looking to start something and see where the RP takes us. We can decide later where we want to go with this.
