  2. Can't wait for people to treat a County Jail as if it was a Maximum Security Prison. Yay. So giddy with excitement.

    "In many ways, marginalized, first-generation Italians had limited means of making a living and supporting their families. Thus, they turned to crime — and, as everyone knows, they were good at it. But the children and grandchildren of yesterday’s mobsters have long moved out of old hoods to the suburbs, and are now going to college to become doctors and, well, lawyers. Armenians, on the other hand, arrived in Hollywood just a few decades ago." — Meghan Walsh, author of the article “American Mafia Gets a Makeover” The Italian-American monopoly over organized crime is over. Like the Roman Empire before it, the Italian-American Mafia is being besieged by an invading barbarian army — Eurasian Organized Crime. Generally more sophisticated than their Italian-American counterparts in terms of criminal activities, Eurasian Organized Crime, more so the Armenian branch of said organized crime, has been deeply involved in large scale fraud throughout the United States but more specifically the West Coast. Being relatively new to the shores of America, the Armenian criminals are bringing a new set of utensils to the smorgasbord which is the American criminal underworld. The take down of Davit “Caterpillar” Avetisyan by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Eurasian Task Force on Organized Crime in mid-2018 was a blow to Armenian O.C. in San Andreas. Avetisyan, a second generation Armenian-American, was at the helm of the San Andreas branch of the ethnic street gang “Armenian Power” or “Westside Armenian Power 13” and was believed to have been critical in the success of the “Blajos Street Crew” which was the Los Santos branch of La Eme, a Mexican-American prison gang and which was headed by Rene “Bosko” Blajos. Avetisyan’s close relationship to Blajos was made public when both were arrested for orchestrating the 2018 murder of Edward “Shakey” Diaz which was believed, at the time, by law enforcement as a internal La Eme issue. Through investigatory tactics law enforcement was able to deduce that the 2018 murder was actually order by unnamed individuals within the dominant Armenian group that oversaw Avetisyan’s empire and that Rene “Bosko” Blajos was only involved as a way of maintaining relations in the ever fragile criminal political world. Declaring that the Armenian presence in West Vinewood was dismantled or dispersed, the F.B.I. Eurasian Taskforce has denied that there has been any residual groups operating in Los Santos. Experts disagree with the F.B.I’s stance on said subject. William Knott, a criminologist and investigative journalist, has stated several times that Avetisyan’s gang was nothing more than a glorified group of thugs that did the bidding of a larger and better connected group. Knott has also said to various media outlets that the group in question has apparent ties to Russian Organized Crime which has become far more visible since the forced deportation of Aleksandr Kirmasov, the assumed mastermind of the Russian incursion into San Andreas. “In the Armenian underground community, the lines between criminal gangs, organized crime groups, and terrorists (or vigilantes) are not always clear.” — Richard Valdemar, author of the article “Roots of the Armenian Power Gang” While the presence of Armenian organized crime has been mostly centered around the district of West Vinewood, Morningwood has also been a haven for Armenian immigrants. Said to be the Los Santos Glendale, Morningwood’s demographic transition started in the late nineteen-eighties shortly before the political destabilization and eventual collapse of the U.S.S.R. Today Morningwood is ethnically dominated by first or second generation Armenians. The city's enclave which is locally referred to as Little Armenia. Although known to exist since the first wave of Armenian immigration in the 1920s and 1930s (censuses from this period revealing a population of 2500-3000 Armenian heritage immigrants) the real population boom came as a result of turbulent political warfare within countries surrounding Armenia including Egypt, Lebanon, and Iran during the 70s and 80s. For this reason, the population increased to nearly 50,000 within the community - 56% of which was foreign born. The community also saw an increase related to the fall of the Soviet Union which brought a wave of Russian and Soviet-Satellite immigrants spread among the entire state of San Andreas. The atmosphere of the “unknown” surrounding Armenian organized crime had been stripped, revealing how a group that was pigeon-holed as “just another street gang” was something more organized and fearsome, just like its ties vory v zakone. The entire leadership of Armenian Power remains locked behind bars while prominent figures and their associates are either buried, fugitives in hiding or have disappeared from the criminal spot-light. But like any other criminal organization, there’s always bottom feeders waiting for the opportunity to put together the shattered remains. Little Armenia and Vinewood still continues to have a grip from local Eurasian crime, and a new generation of Armenian gangsters are sure to be making moves to stake their claim in the underworld once again “I feel so bad for the people that are victims of this. Because not only the government gets millions of dollars stolen from them, there are people who have their identity stolen. So these Armenians can sit at home, drive their Rolls Royces, and not do anything.” — Ana Kasparian, in a radio interview “Media Unfairly Bashes All Armenians Because of Alleged Crimes of a Few” OOC We reserve the right to character kill any individual who associates with our organization.

    The California argument was dubbed "invalid" last year by the majority of people, and now, that it is snowing and supporting the argument, it's somehow now valid. Interesting switch-a-roo folks. That being said, sure, let it snow. And if you're going to use the argument of "realism", no one better have winter clothing and winter tires. You should be skating around the roads in your souped up rice-a-roni vehicles.

    You're on a text based platform telling people to stop using detailed text because you're too lazy to read it. While I agree with the original argument that length doesn't equate quality and that the overall grasp of a character determines if roleplay is quality or not, the notion that "shorter" is better is simply stupid. If this was a voice server where the majority is spoken word as opposed to written word, I'd agree completely - it's all about getting to the conclusion as fast as you can, hence VOIP. But this is the written word and any writer knows better. You try and give as much information as you can to the reader so they can visualize in their head what's going on, the more detailed, generally the more in depth and better the visualization is. It also allows the other roleplayers to interact with the action in a more specific way, thus cutting down on the "powergaming" complaints. Character development and the ability to write go hand in hand when roleplaying in a text based environment. The majority have strengths in 1 and not the other, some have the ability to do both and some just out right don't have any sort ability at all when it comes to development and writing. If you as a roleplayer were treated badly because you choose to write shorter and non-descriptive actions, then the individuals who treated as such are wrong and should feel bad (probably be neutered too). No one, regardless of which side of fence they are, should be treated bad because of the way they do actions. I personally, as a writer, enjoy giving individuals as much information as I can through the use of /me, /do and the various other action commands. I do this because I want the individual to be able picture in their mind exactly what my character is doing so they can appropriately react without having to ask me in /pm, /b or the misuse of /do if an action they are going to do would work. The lack of clarification results in the majority of player / player issues.

    Nice to see that you fellas kept this going. Wish Eggs' could of been apart of it. Good luck, Godspeed. You'll need it.
  11. Interestingly enough I have a structure for a Banking organization which I made over a year ago. I was going to give it a shot until I ventured into the realm of the Los Santos Crime Family. And speaking of which, with LSCF, I tried to get a workers union going (LiUNA Local 613). It was all going well until the individual who was going to be the front person, ie: Jimmy Hoffa, decided to disappear. I had @Jam onboard with his Native-Americans and what not. Was going to be really interesting. But, alas, the interest of the general public is not there for these niche ideas that require effort, time and engaging in an IC recruitment process. Would be nice to see though.
