  3. This thread holds all the rules of the forum. While we try to present ourselves as being a fairly laid back community, there are of course some explicit rules which are here to keep everything friendly and the forums running as smoothly as possible. No Spamming - Pretty obvious, but don't make spam posts outside of the Fun & Games forum. This includes posts of just a few words, or not relating to the topic in any way, posts containing just smilies, or just random nonsense. No Flaming - This includes insulting, racist, sexist or homophobic remarks, and outside of the Warzone forum this is not acceptable. No pornography - We like to keep the forums relatively family friendly. Members found posting links to or any pornographic media will be dealt with accordingly No warez - Discussion about illegally obtaining copyrighted material is strictly forbidden No Multiple Accounts - Unless you have a legit reason for creating another account, you should not be using more than one to post here. Members found using multiple accounts will be disposed of. No Advertising - Do not make topics/posts to advertise your website, or worse, advertise by PM'ing other members. Links in your sig are fine. No impersonation - Impersonating people such as R* employees, or trying to disguise yourself as another member is not allowed. No staff backchatting or ordering - Don't order staff around with orders like "close this topic" or "delete this post please" - The staff already know how to deal with this and will take care of it. Also, if a moderator/admin tells you to, remove your oversized signature, for example, then you must do so, don't argue with them. Staff have authority. You don't. Guidelines Keep on topic - Try to keep on topic at all times, when you go off topic (OT) it makes other people go OT too and then we get a topic full of posts unrelated to the OP's (original poster). Signature And Avatar Rules An avatar is a little picture you can have beneath your user name when you post a message. A signature is a message or picture that will be automatically added onto the end of each post you make Max Signature Size: Width - 500 pixels Height - 200 pixels Size: 100kb Max Avatar Size: Width - 100 pixels Height - 100 pixels Size - 30kb If your signature is larger than the specified you will be notified by a mod and be given 24 hours to change it. If it is still unchaged after 24 hours it will be removed and a message left in place of it. Breaking any of the rules set out here will result in administrative or moderative action being taken on your and/or your posts. Generally your topic will be locked or deleted, and you will be warned for repeated offences. Depending on the severity of offence and habitualness of them, you may receive a suspension or a permanent ban. We reserve the right to remove you from the forums without giving any prior warning. You should of course follow basic 'netiquette' when posting on these forums. i.e. you shouldn't be posting in AIM/MSN speak or whatever. Just type natural English with good spelling and grammar, and remember we are an international forum, so not everyone speaks English as their first language and may have trouble understanding you. If you're new to forums in general, it's probably best you lurk for a while, just to get a feel for how things are done, before you start posting yourself. Using the search feature should be your first action when you're looking for a quick answer to a question you have, or browsing the first few pages of the related subforum. Do this before starting a new topic, as this will make sure we don't get forums full of duplicated topics. A Note About Bumping Topics If you've found a topic in which the posts were all made a long time ago, you should ask yourself this question before replying. Is this topic useful and/or will other members appreciate me bringing this topic back up to the first page? Now if the answer to this is yes, then you're fine so long as your reply is on topic and somewhat meaningful and/or insightful. There's no point bumping a topic and just saying "thanks for the info". If the answer is no, then there porbably isn't much point replying. Bumping old topics which aren't on the first 2 pages of a forum without a worth reply will usually result in the locking of the topic, and/or your post being deleted. You'll be warned for repeat offences. As long as you use a bit of common sense when using these forums you should get on just fine. We want the forum to be clean and fun, so abiding by these rules will help in the continual running of this place. So enjoy the forums and enjoy the community! A more in depth guide for newbie members can be found here in the near future, which explains in more detail about terminology and other important things.

  4. Sure, I would fucking love to have a staff member whose username is anus that would be so epic. To become an administrator, simply send an email to me with the following details: First Name Middle Name (if you have one) Last Name Mother's maiden name Your NIN/SSN Credit card number and CC2 Name of your first school Name of your best childhood friend Favourite teacher Favourite colour Pets names Date of Birth The full address of your current house You don't have to give all of them, but the more you give the better your chance of becoming admin. We need all of these details to employ you.

  8. MY NAME IS CHRIS AND I HAVE A HABIT OF BANNING PEOPLE FROM INDIA AND PAKISTAN WHO COME HERE AND TYPE EVERYTHING IN CAPS BECAUSE THEY ARE ALWAYS REALLY FUCKING ANGRY AT STUFF AND NEED TO SHOUT LOUDLY TO GET THE ATTENTION THEY SO CRAVE. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KICK THIS BAD HABIT BUT PEOPLE LIKE YOU KEEP COMING BACK. IT'S LIKE AN ADDICTION NOW. YOU FUCKERS Seriously though you guys coming here from these countries need to grow the fuck up and stop acting like dicks. You're giving your people some really bad rep. We have a few decent Indian and Pakistani members here, please follow their example.

  10. I don't think Raybob has a clue what's going on. L-Ric is right - nobody has a "right" to be on this forum. It is provided by Chris for free, and subject to you following the rules. If Chris (or his staff) don't want to let you use the forum or all of its features, then we can do that. You have completely ignored the rules and staff, so you have ignored the terms of your free use of this site. We've even tried to be nice by not banning you (which we could easily and legitimately do), giving you a second chance, and another chance. Yet you STILL complain that you don't have as many features as possible, and you want to Staff to go around cleaning up for you. So you want MORE from us for free whilst you continue to abuse the forum and ignore its staff? That's totally fair. You've run out of chances. You have a grand total of zero remaining. Have a week's suspension. Now either STFU or GTFO.

  12. Everyone who was active in the old days was roughly the same age. To be honest, I reckon everyone just sorta grew up a bit and had to deal with life. Chris and Gerard got jobs, Spaz achieved spiritual enlightenment and ascended to a higher state of being, Sky got married () Urbanoutlaw probably got on his Harley and went on an actual rampage (nothing personal if you ever get round to reading this dude, just.. dat beard.) The likes of Noru, Jace, Red Devil, TNF, JayD, whoever Scott is (only know him via facebook now) edit: oh lol you posted above, sup dude? went to uni. Even the crazy people who turned up to troll occasionally dropped off the face of the earth. (Old staff / elites? who was the guy obsessed with Nascar? And the guy who was gonna like give up TV and shit? I lol'd) Dom's working on other projects and is kinda around. Ivan, Ciaran, Pilk, GTADON, Spidervice and WRX22B... Yellowjacket, OGTAM idk what happened with them. I know at least one of them's alive. We had a freakin' sweet community at one point. There were sour spots, back when the flame pit (idk what it was called) existed. But it was mainly everyone vs spaz and he never threw his toys out the pram about it . Harwood got banned which was probably pretty harmful to activity since he had some strong friendships but I honestly can't remember why that happened so I can't say for sure. Feels good to reminisce, and as much as I'd love this community to elevate back to where it was, and think it still could, the general standard of internet personality / behaviour is far lower than it was in the day.

  13. Making the rounds in the news today and this past week have been stories regarding the supposed release date of GTA V, following the leak of a Rockstar North employee's CV. Understandably this spread like wildfire after the CV revealed GTA V's release date to be October 2012. Why is this a problem? Well, the CV isn't real. We've heard from an actual Rockstar source that it's a falsified document. And upon further investigation this appears to check out. The "leak" appears to originate from a so-called "fansite", which consists mostly of completely made up information on GTA V. The site in question is GTA-V5.com, owned and operated by one Dan Neil. Before moving to this domain, Neil had previously written at least two articles on his blogspot site consisting of fake information and claimed it was leaked from Take-Two [1] and [2]. We should point out that Neil's blogs are plastered with advertising, including promises of a free copy of GTA V, alongside other questionable affiliate based adverts from a UK company called JeebiesFreebie.com, which we would advise you all to stay away from; we don't think you'll be getting any free games. Update: Another site, GTA5videos.com, may also be responsible for some of the rumours being created. Creating a CV containing non-public information and using a real employee's name and details is a downright stupid idea. This could easily land the employee in hot water with Rockstar, who at the time of the leak, may not be aware it's not actually real. Unfortunately given the nature of this information, a number of major gaming news outlets picked it up causing it to spread even more. Rather amusingly, Neil also reported on his blog that Rockstar Games took down GTANet, the largest GTA fansite, following the leak being posted on GTAForums. It is laughable that anyone would believe this - Rockstar would never take down legitimate GTA fansites, especially not those they officially recognise and invite to events. The real reason the network was down was simply due to some issues that occurred from a server migration, nothing more, and at the time of posting this, appears to be back online. The likes of OXM and MCV and indeed a number of other reputable networks don't seem to care much for journalistic integrity these days, and it seems that sadly they'll post anything any random newly created blog gives them. So folks, if you do see some rumours being posted that are reported to have been "leaked" from a Rockstar/T2 employee, please apply some critical thinking and look at who originated the leak. Hint: If it's from some ad-filled blog, it's not going to be real. And one final note, Take-Two are at E3 mainly for the new Borderlands game, not GTA V.

  14. I'm guessing you are a BNP supporter? Well I take it very offensively when people go on a hate campaign against all immigrants. I am an immigrant and so is my Dad. He works, pays taxes and contributes to the country he lives in, why should he has less rights then someone who doesn't want to work all because they are English. I am at university to better myself and make myself a valued member of society. Yes illegal immigration is bad, but that doesn't automatically equal terrorist. My view is that anyone who wants to come here and work is welcome.

  15. I'd quite like to step in here and get a few things said: @TUNA - If you have a problem with a certain member of the forum spamming, then kindly inform me of your concerns instead of following that same member around the forums with your nose up his ass jumping on everything he posts with tiring, cookie cutter remarks. @MrGTA - If you believe another member is making your time spent on these forums less enjoyable, contact me outlining your concerns and we will do our utmost to take action upon those concerns. In the meantime, try not to retaliate or stoop to their level. Also: the post merge is just a moderator tool so that we can merge duplicate threads to help minimise clutter and confusion. I know we're not especially active these days, but that doesn't mean we're any less vigilant. Just leave it the fuck out - simple as that.

  16. I just quickly read all the posts in this topic unaware of it before, and jesus christ. You people in the restricted group are all pissy for being in it? Then why are you posting here in this topic? That's the last thing I would be doing. Are you so blatantly blind that instead of just accepting it and trying to be a better poster, you just rant about it here? If so, good luck not getting banned.

  18. This forum, believe it or not, used to be very active! I firstly joined here around 2004/2005 when I was a mere 13/14 years old and I'm still here even after a few banned accounts. I do distinctively remember this forum being active with a working gang system, and a kind of community feel. I also forgot about this forum perhaps with age, now being 22, after I joined here years and years ago. People just move on and have things to do...I have work and a girlfriend so I don't get much time to even just play GTA let alone come and post on here. I also have an account on GTAforums but I'm not a huge fan, I used to prefer it on here. Gone are the days of the orange/grey skin and GTA San andreas being the latest GTA to hit the market. This place provides good memories and many wasted hours. Chris and co have done a wonderful job maintaining the forum and website despite their being very little users.

  19. Vice City Stories Gang Guide Leader- The leader of the gang Weapons- The weapons the gang holds when in their turf on foot or in non-mission situations. Mission Weapons- The weapons the gang holds during missions. Turf- The gang’s natural turf. It’s where their vehicles can still be found after their Empires are gone. Initial Empire Turf- It’s where the gang’s Empires can be found in the beginning of the Empire business. Gang members can also be seen outside or near their Empires. Enemies- Gangs that shoot them on sight of have some kind of enemy signs during missions. Gang Vehicle- The vehicle that the gang drives Vance Crime Family Leader: Victor Vance Weapons: Baseball Bat, Pistol, Scorpion, Mac 10, AK-47 Turf: In front of every Empire owned by Vic. Enemies: Bikers, Sharks, Cholos Gang Vehicle: Admiral Comments: This is Victor’s gang. The gang will wield Baseball Bats and Pistols if they are outside Protection Racket, Loan Shark, and Prostitution businesses only. When you’re Empire is set to High-Roller Robbery, Smuggling, or Drugs, then they will have Mac 10s and AK-47s. The division of the gang that has Baseball Bats and Pistols will rarely to occasionally ride Admirals near Empires. The Empires are unlocked after the mission To Victor, The Spoils. Gang Members (Protection Racket, Loan Shark, Prostitution Branch)Gang Members (Drugs, Smuggling, Robbery Branch)Trailer Park Mafia Leader: Marty Williams Weapons: Baseball Bat, Pistol Mission Weapons: Baseball Bat, Machete, Pistol, Micro SMG Turf: Viceport, Little Havana Initial Empire Turf: Viceport (1-3 Empires, Can’t Takeover) Gang Vehicle: Admiral Comments: This gang might hold the record for the least amount of missions in the storyline before getting wiped out. After the mission D.I.V.O.R.I.C.E, the Trailer Park Mafia is finished since Marty is gone. Gang MembersCubans Leader: Umberto Robina Weapons: Fists, Pistol Mission Weapons: Pistol, Micro SMG Turf: Little Havana Enemies: Cholos Gang Vehicle: Cuban Hermes Favorite Radio Station: Espantoso Comments: Another name for the Cubans in Vice City Stories is the Los Cabrones. The name isn’t mentioned during the storyline, but in the multiplayer modes V.I.P. R.I.P. and Empire Takedown, it includes selecting your character to be the Cholos or Los Cabrones. Since the Cubans are allies to Vic and the Vance Crime Family, they are the only gang to last through the storyline that don’t have Empires. The Cubans are strong enemies to the Cholos. No, for those wondering, you can’t recruit the Cubans. Gang MembersGang CarCholos Leader: Unknown Weapons: Baseball Bat, Pistol Mission Weapons: Pistol, Micro SMG Turf: Little Haiti Initial Empire Turf: Little Havana, Little Haiti (4 Empires) Enemies: Cubans, Vance Crime Family Gang Vehicle: Cholo Sabre Favorite Radio Station: Paradise FM Comments: After the mission, Havana Good Time, the Cholos Empires are transferred to the Bikers if you’ve yet to take them over. They might be the Forellis of VCS since they aren’t exactly wiped out since Cholo Sabres can rarely be seen driving around Little Haiti and they can be seen walking around the road leading to the Junkyard and in front of the White Stallionz Bar. Gang MembersGang CarBikers Leader: Mitch Baker (Not Mentioned In Game) Weapons: Pistol, Micro SMG Mission Weapons: Pistol, Scorpion, Micro SMG, AK-47 Turf: Downtown Initial Empire Turf: Downtown, Vice Point (10 Empires) Enemies: Vance Crime Family Gang Vehicle: Biker Angel Favorite Radio Station: VCFL Radio Comments: The Bikers aren’t largely involved in the storyline. They’re only in a few missions. This is really the most annoying gang to deal with when attacking Empires since they spawn more often than Sharks when trying to destroy the Biker Angel outside their Empires. Unlike the Gang Rancher which is a big vehicle, the Biker Angel takes longer to blow up since you have to use manual aim. In the last Brian Forbes mission "Bum Deal" Bikers or a homosexual (gay for everyone else) version of the Bikers were at the White Stallionz bar. I'm not really positive that only the Bikers at that bar were gay or all of them were. The Bikers are the only returning gang from Vice City that didn’t have their leader reappear in Vice City Stories. Gang MembersGang BikeSharks Leader: Unknown Weapons: Pistol, Mac 10, Micro SMG Mission Weapons: Pistol, Mac 10, Micro SMG, MP5, AK-47 Turf: Prawn Island, Vice Point Initial Empire Turf: Vice Point, Washington Beach, Ocean Beach (13 Empires) Enemies: Vance Crime Family Gang Vehicle: Gang Rancher Favorite Radio Station: The Wave 103 Comments: The Sharks basically have no involvement in the storyline, but they are a big pain while taking over Empires. When in the process of taking them over, they come in huge four-door Ranchers and drive-by you like crazy. Be careful while taking over Empires on the east side because the Sharks don’t play. The Sharks primary name in Vice City was the Streetwannabes, but they dress completely different. Gang MembersGang CarMendez Gang/Cartel Leaders: Armando and Diego Mendez Mission Weapons: Micro SMG, AK-47, Rocket Launcher, Laser Sighted Sniper Rifle Turf: None Gang Vehicle: Sentinel XS Comments: The Mendez Gang doesn’t loiter on the streets. The Mendez mansion is located in Prawn Island where two Sentinel XSes are parked. During some of the missions involving the Mendez gang does include them driving in those cars. I wouldn’t consider this a true gang, though. Patrol Invest Group Leader: None Weapons: Fists, Pistol Turf: Various Areas: Vice Point Mall, Escobar International Airport, Starfish Island Gang Vehicle: None Comments: In Vice City, I probably would label this as a gang but in Vice City Stories, it’s a different story. They have no involvement in the storyline unlike Vice City and they really aren’t a gang, but I’m putting them here, anyway. The next gang I’m going to list is again, not a true gang. Gang MemberFort Baxter Military Leader: None Weapons: M4 Turf: Fort Baxter Air Base Gang Vehicle: None Comments: The Fort Baxter Military in Vice City has more gang characteristics since then, there were actually packs of them inside and outside of the air base, but here in Vice City Stories, you only see about groups of 2 or 3 walk around only inside the Air Base. They, again, aren’t labeled as a true gang. They shoot at Victor, when he is not wearing the Army Fatigues outfit. Sometimes, if you fly into the air base, they won’t shoot at you for a while (While not wearing Army Fatigues), then randomly they might have a large pack of them shooting at Victor. When having the Army Fatigues outfit on, the military shoot at Victor only when they are shot at (not when aimed at). Gang MembersGolfers Leader: None Weapons: Golf Club, Pistol Turf: Leaf Links Gang Vehicle: Caddy Comments: This is one of the 3-4 non-true gangs in Vice City Stories. The Golfers aren’t a gang. They just can be a group of 2 to 3 people playing a game of golf. Caddies usually only appear when leaving Leaf Links and going east to Vice Point. The only time they whip out their pistols are when you make Vic shoot one while they’re still on a Caddy, then go to a higher elevation (Like jumping onto a car). Then, they’ll whip out their pistols. It must be for some kind of protection or something. It’s almost like the Diablos do in Liberty City Stories that’s similar to that. Gang MembersGang CarSpecial Thanks: deadmanjeff for reminding me to add the Golfers. Noru for supplying me with the Vance Crime Family, Cuban, and Golfer pics. dwinch for the "Invisible Vic" cheat on cheatsync.net

I know that would cost millions of jobs, but the BILLIONS of dollars McDonald's has would immediately be donated to all the small-time really good burger joints across the country. Take that, fuckin' Clown!

  24. The thing that I notice most about GTA is that everyone has their own style of playing it. Some people just play through the storyline, whilst others piss about in the countryside, others roleplay as a cop or gangster, others drive around shooting prostitutes, others go around collecting items, others race and stunt with vehicles, others make mods or videos, and many more I can't even imagine. GTA San Andreas gave many more opportunities for that than any other GTA game, or even any other game. You could be everything from a mafia boss to a taxi driver to a military scientist in Area 69. You could spend your day chilling on grove street, driving down the open road, robbing casinos or flying over the vast countryside. GTA IV, in contrast, was much more 2-dimensional. Outside of the storyline, there wasn't much else to do except drive around a city. There weren't many buildings to go in, no countryside to explore, no planes to fly, no destinations really. It looks like GTA V will change that - I just hope they go all-the-way and give us the best ever sandbox to play in.

  25. The following is a list of facts, make of them what you will: Just because someone is middle eastern doesn't make them a terrorist. Some white British males are Muslims. Some white British males are terrorists. Some Asian Males living in Britain are neither Muslims nor Terrorists Just because someone is a terrorist doesn't make them Afghani. Just because someone has come to this country fro the middle east it doesn't make them an illegal Immigrant. Just because they choose to work, doesn't mean they are aiming to maliciously steal away our employment prospects. If someone wants to work in the UK, own a house or car in the UK, or pretty much take a shit in the UK, they're paying taxes. My least favourite tax is income tax. It fails to tax the most to the people who earn the most, it penalises those who work for their money, and does not affect those who use the income tax of other to live off. If you don't like the state of the country you live in, get a job, work and leave. It's what a lot of foreign people do, and it seems to be working out for them. The wars some people aren't paying for (that pesky income tax again) is more than enough karma for me. Working immigrants do orders of magnitude more for our economy than non-working native British. The next time taxes go up will have more to do with non-working Brits than working immigrants. Jobs exist in the UK. Easy living isn't working night-shifts in a shitty fucking corner-shop or a taxing rank. Easy living is going down to a doll office a few times a month for a cheque that's supposed to enable you to SURVIVE and search for a job, but instead spending it on luxury items that people in the middle east would travel halfway around the fucking world to provide for their families, in the face of racism and spite. There's more, but I'm off to play minecraft.

  27. Almost everyone who posted in this topic is absolutely fucking retarded. I am literally ashamed you are all members of a forum I run. I might just ban all of you. Someone complained Vita doesn't run PS2 games - why the fuck would you want to be able to do that? Seriously why would this be relevant to anyone in 2011/2012? People are arguing about the English language in England and Americans etc. when the only American to post here was Spaz and he didn't even bring anything up to do with language. Someone said Rome was in Greece - You learn about the Greeks and the Romans in primary school. How could you think they were the same? Someone said Romans speak Romanian - Same as above really. Romans were people and yeah they spoke Latin, Roman is not a language. Someone asked why Americans call Chinese people "Asians" - It's largest country in Asia you moron. How are they anything other than Asian? Seriously did you not go to school at any point during your life? What continent do you think China is in? Spaz, almost, but my girlfriend happens to be Romanian, so I sort of care

  33. Haha, idk. But let me share some wisdom with the younger guys here. As a few of you may know, I had a great thing going on with a girl who I loved one hell of a lot. I'm a nice guy, but I live life a little on the edge. Yeah, I'm impulsive, love to go on spontaneous road trips, drink all night, take recreational drugs and I'm not afraid to say what I think or do something crazy on the drop of a hat. But I'd never have dragged her into anything she didn't want to do. I'd skip my go on the blunt pass if she'd asked me to go easy, drive extra safe if she was worried, call her in the morning, etc etc. Around the start of the year, well, I won't mess you around here, I turned into a bit of a jerk. I didn't care so much about when I saw her, relished the times we'd argue so I could have a break and rip it with my friends, and hey... makeup sex, right? It got to a stage where she was getting pissed at me about it. And I was pissed at her for being pissed about it. Why couldn't I do my thing? There was a period of time where we decided to cool off; I'd agreed to call her when I'd decided, essentially whether we'd carry on our relationship, the way it had been before I turned into a dick or go our separate ways .I spent the week having an epic chillout, completely and utterly nonchalant cos let's face it, she was always going to take me back - she needed me, we had a deep emotional bond ad a great thing going. We'd even worked at the same restaurant for around a year without any tension or feeling overcrowded, or anything... About a week later she told me she was done waiting and to come see her the next day. I did, still partially high following a 2 hour sleep and a cold shower. I started to shake. I felt more nervous than I'd ever been my entire life. I was sitting there, 20 years old and melting into an emotional fucking wreck like a 6 year old girl. She explained how she felt we'd come to a natural end and it would be good for both of us if we just called it a day, having grown apart over the past couple of months. I forced out some reluctant tones of agreement, stood up, hugged her, kissed her on the cheek and left. Around another week later, she texted me asking for her stuff back. She said she'd send her sister round so I told her I'd be out. She told me to leave it by the door so I said it was forecast rain. Then she told me she was on her way back from work and she'd pick it up. I had to see here just once more... I had to tell her what i felt, what was going on in my head and beg her to take me back. By the time I was out the shower, she'd left another message saying she got tired waiting and went home. So I went round there. I gave her back a shoebox with all the things of hers I had. Again, she talked about stuff being for the better (wise to my intentions no doubt) and got the same affirmative mumbles in return. I got in my car and left. Then I cut up a guy infront of me on the road. Then I slammed on my fucking brakes and turned that sucker around. I went the fuck back there and laid my entire soul on the fucking line and begged her to take me back. I said I'd only agreed before because I thought it was what she wanted, I told her I wanted to right my wrongs and make her as happy as I possibly could. No dice. She gave me all the stuff which she didn't want out the aforementioned shoebox and said a third and final goodbye, along with the promise that she still cared about me and we wouldn't be one of those resentful ex - couples. A few weeks passed with me going through highs and lows about my new found loneliness / freedom / eternal solitude / lone wolf status. I was coming to terms with it well when that white and blue technological motherfucker facebook reared it's ugly head, and kindly informed me she was dating a cocaine - using, lsd - taking, woman using....dickhead. We'd both worked with him at the restaurant where she's promised me to 'not talk like they do about girls they've been with because it's fucking disgusting' and where he'd talk to the other guys about how great her tits were and once locked her in the walk in fridge which resulted in her crying. So now I'm pretty much one angry sonofabitch, and have this to conclusively respond to the thread title with this: Don't ever, ever change who you are in the name of finding a girl. I found mine by being Mr. Nice guy and we enjoyed 4 years (I was 16 when we started dating) together. I had some of the best times of my life with her. Don't ever do something that isn't you, that you aren't comfortable doing to impress someone, or live up to the stereotype that has been stamped on your head. Don't let your buddies push you into acting like a douche in the name of some girl. if you want her, cut the crap and go ask her out. If she doesn't want you, she's not worth your time or fucking effort. She wants the jerk, guess what, chances are down the line you'll end up thinking she's a fuckin' jerk. It's not about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, that's how winning is done. Aaaand a few more things to round off the text - wall. Nice to see you back Kokane This is fucking adorable, congrats dude

  35. I wonder whether you actually know any gay people, or just believe what you see on TV. I've never been in a gay pride march or anything like that. I don't wear pink, I don't sing or dance, I'm not a hairdresser or a model, I don't have a camp voice, I don't do anything sterotypically gay. The only gay thing I do is have a boyfriend, and even then I don't flaunt him around everywhere or do inappropriate things in public. However, that doesn't mean I'm treated the same as a straight person. I should be able to kiss my boyfriend in public, just like a straight couple can, but I can't because at the very least I'd get funny looks and tuts, but I could realistically get beaten up or even killed for it. It happens. I should be able to marry my boyfriend, should we decide to do that, just like a straight couple can. But I can't. Nor can we adopt children, have the same rights, or have the same tax benefits that straight couples can. If I tell someone I'm gay, I quite often get told "please don't hit on me". That drives me INSANE! Do straight guys hit on every girl they see just because they like women? No. Just because I like guys (not girls) doesnt mean I like you. In fact, the chances are you're incredibly ugly to me and I can't wait to look somewhere else. And let's not forget the sterotypes of promiscuity, sexual deviancy and being disease ridden. Most gay people have LESS sex than straight people because they can't come out at school/college/work and they struggle to find someone else gay. In San Francisco I think sexually active gay people are fractionally more likely to have HIV/AIDS, but I don't, and I wish people wouldn't ask if I do. Although you seem to understand that it doesn't make a difference to our job, you seem to think we want to make everything pink and gay. That's not the case. Just in case you were wondering, I was in the military, and I am a police officer. I agree that there's no point in telling everyone you meet. I never told my colleagues at work, because it wasn't relevant. But I shouldn't have to lie about it. I shouldn't have to pretend to stare at breasts, and answer questions about which intern I'd like to bend over the photocopier. I should be able to tell people "well actually I like guys, not girl", just like "well actually I like blondes, not brunettes". If it is relevant, I should be able to tell people, and it shouldn't be a big deal. I shouldn't be forced to listen to people talking about fags and queers like we're all a bunch of rapists and pedophiles without being able to speak up. But thanks to people like you, I have to lie. Some people deal with this opression by going out on big parades. Some people flaunt their sexuality in their attire and demeanour. I just get on with it, and try to change peoples attitudes positively. So stop treating us as all the same, all one community, all fitting the stereotype, all working together to turn the world pink. Please don't assume that I'm going to rape your children or dance my way to the bar to buy a girly cocktail. We're not the same.

  36. At the bottom right of each post (except your own) you'll see two icons, and You can click these if you feel the post is deserving of reputation. Reasons to vote up: Posts that are informative, helpful, for example if someone answered a question for you... or if you find a post witty/funny Reasons to vote down: Any post that breaks the rules really, or is just unhelpful, spam, flaming etc. lulzworthy = worthy of lulz. lulz = lolz. lolz = things that made you lol. So he was saying if a post is lulzworthy (makes you laugh) you could vote it up. Hope that helped. And by the way if it did help, then this would be an example of a post you might give reputation for... of course I'm the admin here so I don't care/need it... but you can if you want

  39. I personally think Raybob should have been IP banned a long time ago and had his computer smashed over something very hard (y'know, like his head) to make sure, but that's just me. Look, he makes a general ass out of himself, insults the staff, abuses every chance he gets, and now he makes this asinine topic declaring he's leaving. But that's not it! After ONE person says he's not that bad a person, he then decides to stay! Not only that, he then adds the addendum that he'll stay if he's taken out of the Restricted group, as if we owe him something. This topic only shows how conceited Raybob is. He's nothing more than prepubescent attention whore who thinks he's entitled to do whatever he wants because he still believes the First Amendment will protect him, despite the fact that this is a privately owned website being operated by some sexy beasts in the UK.

  42. Thanks Chris - it's good to be back in the hot seat! So as well as the forum upgrade, new skin and a few staff alterations, we also have a few (more relevant) changes. Ownership of Subforums In the past, we have had 'section moderators'. These are staff who get a handful of subforums each which they can moderate, but they can't moderate the rest of the forum (unlike super mods). However, these subforums are usually picked a bit randomly, and quite often the section moderators don't even visit all of their areas. So we're changing this. Starting soon, we will start giving some members a certain level of ownership over a chosen area of the forum. These members will practically run that subforum: picking which topics are pinned, closing dead topics, stopping people bumping old threads, making sure everyone stays relevant and on topic (without spoiling their fun) etc. This is quite different to forum staff, who just go around and clean up other people's mess, because you'll have a big say in how your subforum is run. If you want it to be relaxed and funny, then you can make it like that. If you want it to be really focused and useful for people to find out they information they need quickly, with a really helpful community around that, then you can make it like that. This is a great opportunity for a lot of you to get involved in how this forum is run, so I hope a lot of you will want to get stuck in and put yourselves forward for this! More details of how you can apply will come in a few days. Report-a-Post The reporting system is very useful for members to alert staff when there is a spammer on the forum, or some really serious abuse. However, it could be a lot more useful if members used it for anything staff need to know about, like arguments. So starting today, you can use the "Report" button, below a post, to alert staff to any misbehaviour or breach of the rules, including arguing, spamming, etc. Again, don't use it just because you disagree with someone's opinion, or just because you don't like them. Staff are here to help, so if someone is being a pain in the backside and spoiling the forums, then we can step in and help out. We can help arbitrate arguments and facilitate discussion, we can do more than just ban people. Just ask us to help, that's what we're here for! Rep & Voting The warning/rep system has been overhauled, and I'll do my best to quickly explain the changes. Member Rep has been removed. Instead, you can now vote individual posts up/down. Just close your eyes and think of Digg. This is to be used when you think a post is unusually good, or unusually bad. Vote up someones post if it's really clever, funny, helpful, informative etc. Vote down a post if they are being rude or arguing. You have a maximum of 10 votes per day. This is NOT to be used for voting up someone just because they are your friend; or voting them down just because they disagree with you. Abusing the system will be dealt with, with a formal warning. Warning System In the past, rep and warnings used to cancel each other out. Now rep has been removed, that obviously doesn't happen anymore. Warnings now stand on their own. You do have a warning level, which goes up every time you receive a formal warning. More serious offences will increase your warning level by more than minor offences. But now, this is only used for staff to understand how well you have behaved in the past, and this does not automatically suspend/ban you when you reach a certain level. Staff can suspend or ban a member at any time, if they think the offence is serious enough; or if there are a lot of minor offences. There are a few other changes behind the scenes, but nothing massively important. Just give me a shout if you have any questions.

  45. At GTW, we're starting a new project. This is a whole load of of gaming wikis joining together to make a new independent network. We're making a wiki about games, and having an article for every game, including basic information but also having reviews. Now, instead of 1 person giving the game an arbitrary score out of 10 for the wrong reasons, we're letting the whole community give their opinion, and essentially producing a set of justified recommendations based on that. For a simple example: "FPS fans will love this game because it gets straight to the action, but those who prefer deep storylines and side-quests probably won't feel very satisfied. This is a game you can just pick up and play, without having to spend months building up your character, great for casual gamers but the MMORPG player might find it a bit simplistic." What do you guys think of that?

  46. Disclaimer: I do not own the rights to this game. I’m just borrowing some names, locations, events, & objects (like vehicles & weapon’s names), from Rockstar Games. I’m not making a profit off this story! I do have many of my own characters in this story as well. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tommy Vercetti’s Story & Timeline We don’t know anything about, Tommy’s childhood. We do know this though, that he was a former member of the Forelli crime family, back in the day. (1960’s – 1970’s) The Forelli Crime Family is located in a northeastern urban city of Liberty City. For what ever crime(s) he committed back then, Tommy spent 15 years out of 25 years in jail. He got out on “good behavior”. The Head of the Forelli Family was Sonny. Sonny thought that with Tommy out of jail, the feds & police would be paying close attention to not only Tommy, but HIS whole Mafia Family. Sonny & his crew had been thinking about spreading their operations down south “Vice City” so to speak, & also getting into the drug business down there. So Sonny sends Tommy & two curriers down to Vice City. They went down there to set-up a buy. Tommy & the currier fly down to Vice City & arrive at Escorbar International Airport. They hop into a waiting car, driven by a man named Ken Rosenberg. Ken is doing this job as a favor for Sonny. Ken is a local Vice City lawyer. Anyway, from the airport they drive to the meet. The meet took place at an industrial dock, not to far from the airport. They pull up to the docks. A Maverick chopper with two occupants flies in & land about 100ft. from them. The three occupants in the chopper are Vance brothers & another guy, kind-of work for a cocaine baron boss named Ricardo. Well, Tommy, the two curriers, Victor Lance & the other guy, meet each other half way. The deal seems to be going great, until a group of Vice City SWAT officers open fire. The 2 Forelli curriers, the other guy & Lance’s brother get hit & go down. While Tommy dives into the car, Lance Vance Dance, fly’s off. In all the chaos Tommy lost not only the drugs, but he lost Sonny’s money. Ken then drives Tommy back to the Ken’s office (at 55 Washington ST). (From here on, until when Tommy rules Vive City you all should know about, by now. Right!? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My story, takes place after you completed all the story missions to the game. In my story the game ended in the summer of 1987. So here is the history of the Vercetti Crime Family, after the game story line ended. After the game ended, Tommy, Ken, & Avery started to expand a bit more. Avery continued to build offices & apartments through-out VC. Tommy kept his gang strong & kept their morale strong, as well. About a week later Tommy proposed to Mercedes. They were dating since a month after they met. She was 7 months pregnant with twins Joseph & Veronica (or “V” for short), when Tommy proposed to her. Joseph & Veronica were born October 17th 1987. Tommy & Mercedes got married July 4th 1988. One month later she was pregnant again. Mercedes gave birth to Christopher, May 3rd 1989. Today the Vercetti Crime Family still rules the crime wave in Vice City. So far the family has ruled VC for 18-19 years. From 1987-2005+. Part of the reason for this is that the Family has not expanded there organization. Tommy actually learned a lot of what not to do, thanks to Hollywood movies. Such films as: Scarface, The God Father series, the Goodfellas, & others. His father in-law (Colonel Juan Cortez or DAD), was his favorite inspiration. With dad’s help Tommy’s Empire took off. The family owns other real-estate in VC besides the ones we all know of. The family of course has a new lawyer. For those of you, who didn’t know Ken Rosenberg, moved out to the State of San Andreas, between 1990-1991. Hugh Cortez is the lawyer for the Family. He was raised by the Colonel’s brother back in Europe. The mansion Tommy & his family live in is the same one we all know of.

Of course, Tommy & Mercedes live in the Vercetti Mansion. Now for the “gang”: There are a few different gang cars that the Vercetti Crime Family uses. Note Gang cars are only bullet proof. 1.

The base has 6 of them. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -The Vercetti Family Timeline: In the winter of ’89, Juan Cortez (Dad) came back to Vice. He & Ken helped Tommy start a conference, so to speak. The conference is a meeting of all the gangs in Vice City. The meeting takes place on neutral territory, at 33 Avery Ct. All gangs have to bring to the conference: The leader or official representative of the gang No more than 2 aids &, No more than 2 bodyguards/gang members. The Gangs are: 1. The Army; most powerful 2. The Vercetti Crime Family; very powerful 3. The Cubans; pretty powerful 4. The Haitians; powerful 5. The Bikers/Rednecks; powerful 6. The Street wannabe’s / Sharks; Moderate 7. The P.I.G.s; Moderate 8. The Golfers; Wimpy The conference happens once a month. The list of who’s powerful was for the year of 1989. They update the list every year @ their year’s end meeting. As of February 18th 1990 all but one gang wars had ended. The Army just would not give up fighting. They were invincible, until….. In 1990/1991, a lot of the Army Gang was shipped out to Kuwait, for the Persian Gulf War / Operation Desert Storm. So that, next month, all other gang leaders formed a plan to overpower & destroy the rest of the Army Gang. Every gang had a special role(s) to play in this attack. The Golfers were the look-outs, that day. They would keep an eye out for help, trouble, reinforcements, & so on. The P.I.G.s is security, in sense. They secured the perimeter, at both ends. If the police showed up, they would hold them off. The Sharks were the bait. They lured the most of army out of the base. As soon as the Army was out of the base; The Cubans came from the left &, The Haitians came from the right. They both attacked the Army at the same time, while The Bikers & the Sharks reinforced themselves, and then attacked the Army head on. The Vercetti Gang, then came from the air & water. They had 12 (“borrowed”) Mavericks & the Hunter. The Hunter provided air-to-ground fire / cover fire while the 12 Mavericks landed the Vercetti gang members. The Vercetti Gang also provided security from the harbor police & coast guard, using the launch. They used 4 of them. The whole incident took 2 hours. The Army Gang is no more. ----The Aftermath---- All 400 Army gang members KIA (home & abroad) A total of 60 vehicles were destroyed: 4 Mavericks, 1 Launches, 6 Rhinos, 8 barracks, 3 Gang Burritos, 6 Coastguards, 6 Predators, 16 Police cars, 6 Enforcers, & 4 Police Mavericks. A Total of 531 people were killed: 400 Army gang members, 12 Sharks members, 8 police officers, 30 Cubans members, 25 Haitians members, 12 Vercetti gang members, 10 pedestrians, 25 P.I.G.’s, & 9 Bikers. The Real Army now uses that base & is not a threat, unless the police call for them. (6 Stars) March 19th, 1991: construction of an addition to the Vice City Army Air National Guard is under way. March 26th, 1991: It appears that the Army base is building a Navel port & a neighborhood around the base area for the troops. July 30th, 1991: The base is Complete! The base area holds all branches of the US Military. -Just before that incident, Ken couldn’t take all this new craziness. So he got help from up north. The Forelli Crime Family from Liberty City sent for him. Tommy couldn’t deal with Ken’s anxiety-Bull****, anymore. So he let Ken go. Ken left Vice City September 1st 1990. On October 3rd 1990, Hugh Cortez came back to America to be Tommy’s Lawyer. Hue was born & raised in Europe & came to America at the age of 19. He went to Harvard Law School. He graduated in spring of 1987 & flew back home, where he became a very successful & respectful criminal defense lawyer.- 1991: Avery demolishes the Vercetti mansion in readiness to build a new more beautiful, a larger & more secure mansion for Tommy & Mercedes. The House Plan: 1. Two more acres than the existing nine acres. 2. A 15,000sqft. Mansion. 3. A riding stable. 4. Half stone/gravel half paved driveway w/a two story parking garage, attached to the mansion. 5. A new ten ft. high steel/concrete wall, used as the property/perimeter wall. 6. A two acre wooded Fun Park. An off road adventure trail. 7. A small runway w/hanger attached to the mansion. 8. A new U shaped bay. A. The lot starts with the entrance. A double security gate/wall system (like a prison entrance would have), checks each vehicle before entering the property. Outfitted w/new sensors, cameras, & other stuff, the new entrance has made the Vercetti Family even safer. Even the drive way has walls of its own to prevent whatever. The driveway wall stops when the driveway reaches the garage & the other side stops at the u-turn. The curved part of the u-turn connects to the guest entrance to the mansion. The position of the driveway is exactly where it was before. B. Guest cars would be parked in the parking garage, of course. First flour of the garage is for guest cars. The second flour parks the Vercetti Family’s vehicles. The roof of the garage holds & houses, two helipads w/hanger. Looking at the front of the mansion, the Garage is attached to the left wing. C. The Adventure Fun Park, has an off road trail w/a mud field, a private shooting range, & a small fishing pond w/camping area. The Park is divided into two. The first half is used for the “Family”, & the other half is used as a training park for the Vercetti Crime Family Crew, Agents, Men, ext. The Fun Park is located @ the end of the property. There is a paved private road that leads to it from the Parking Garage. (a strait road/line) The beginning edge of the Park sits beside the Front Gate Entrance. D. The U shaped bay has land along part of the outer side of the “U”, & salt water floods the inner part of the “U”. The bay isn’t really shaped like a U, but it’s the only way I could explain it. The bottom of the “U” (the curved portion), has a four door/garage boat house. The boat house, sits on the edge of the back patio of the mansion. E. The Runway w/hanger lies behind the Parking Garage kind of next to the Boat house. The hanger houses a/one Shamal gta;sa, in it. The runway runs along part of the U shaped Bay. The Helipad & Runway share a single control tower, located on the roof of the Parking Garage. F. The Riding Stable is on the right side of the property. It’s a big open field w/track for the family to go horse back riding. The Stable has an additional building. It’s the property guards HQ building. It has quad bikes gta:sa, horses, & a Seasparrow gta:vc. A small dirt road leads to/from the driveway. Tommy & Mercedes didn’t want to move back in until all the security, travel, & leisure enmities were resolved. (Built) That means the security gate/wall, the park, the garage, the runway, the boat house, the riding stables, & of course their Mansion. The property was said to have Ground-To-Air; Heat Seeking Missiles, but know body knows if that’s true or not. Not even me! Me! Of all the people in the world I can’t confirm or deny that accusation. Security for the property use a quad bike gta;sa, for patrols of the lots, as well as horses. The Mansion’s Interior: The foyer & main hall w/duel curved staircases are exact replicas to the movie Scareface. (Minus the Statue of the man w/globe that says “THE WORLD IS YOURS”, but the pond is there) Tommy never believed that phrase to be true to him or any body else. 1. The fist floor; This floor has a great big dinning room, 6 half bathrooms (3 his & 3 hers), a lounge w/bar, a dance hall, a guest living room w/TVs; Stereos; & a mini bar, a Smoking lounge, & the maids/servants quarters. It also has access to the fist floor Parking Garage. 2. The second floor; at the top of this floor is the doorway to Tommy’s Office. It has a big resemblance to Scareface, again. This floor only has the master bedroom w/master bath, Tommy’s Office, & a conference/eating room. It also has access to the second floor of the Parking Garage. 3. The third floor; this floor has 6 Full Bed/Bathrooms. It has an eating room, Dinning room, Living/family room, & hobby/game room. It also has access to the helipad. This floor also has plenty of storage. & last but not least the third floor has a small size movie theatre. 4. The basement; The basement houses the Kitchen, Laundry room, Dish/China Wash room, the 24/7 call room for the butler/maid/servant, Dry Cleaner, & Hurricane Shelter 1995 & 1996 were BIG years for Tommy & his family! By 1995, in a course of 10 years Avery had rebuilt & built a lot real-estate in Vice City. There is one two-story house that he built just for the gang conferences, in Washington Beach. The head of the Cuban gang “Umberto”, has a favor for Tommy. Umberto’s cousin, Enrique wants to know if Tommy would be interested in Laundering drug money for him. Tommy thought about it for two months. His answer was yes. Tommy would use the film studio as another front. At the rear of the lot is a dock. Enrique would have the money flown in by a Skimmer. The plane would float up-to the dock, 8 of Vercetti’s men would be waiting. 4 of them would carry the money up-to the lot & the other 4 were guards w/M4s, Sniper Rifles, & Heat Seeking Rocket Launchers. With the help of Congressman Alex Shrub & Hue Cortez, Tommy & his family are now Justus/legal wise, “untouchable”. This means that the courts can not trial or convict them of 90% of all crimes. The summer of 1995 was huge! The Forelli Crime Family tried to make another move to Vice City. The Family sent down 60 guys to get settled in as well as “setting up shop” With ties in San Andreas, the Forellis decided to focus on there move & take over of Vice City. Before there move began, they sent down some Mafia Scouts & Observers, to spy on Tommy & to get to know the land & what it has to offer. The 60 men arrive by 2 Shamals & 1 AT-400. They also had 6 Beagles, with loads of Mafia Sentiel each, supplies, & weapons n’ ammo. The first plane to touch down was on July 1st 1995, at 12:38am. By 1:10am all 60 men & there cars n’ gear were on the tarmac. They rented 2 buses & 1 Mule. The Mafia Scouts had purchased some gorgeous estates on Starfish Island. They arrived at there new homes/graves. Little did they know that Tommy’s gang found out about the move & found & killed the scouts & observers. The men get settled in. The next day 12 men go to a warehouse they rented to get things ready. They were joined by 20 others & then set off to do damage to Tommy’s Empire. First they set fire to The Print Works. Tommy’s money print was destroyed. Then between July 2nd to September 5th the 60 men of the Forelli Crime family destroyed 4 residential estates & 2 other asset properties. By 9:00am, the next morning all 60 men were mysteriously killed. The police had no leads & was filed as a “cold case”. The coroner’s office released all 60 corpses to Auntie Poulet (the leader of the Haitians). She & Tommy had all 60 corpses flown back to Liberty City. The forellis saw this as an insult, but before they could declare war on the Vercetti Gang, other **** was happening, on the home front. ----The aftermath---- 100 Vercetti Gang members killed 6 Burritos destroyed Print works burned. 4 residential estates burned Boat yard toasted 5 Boats sunk Kaufman Cabs bombed out 12 skeleton taxis 22 employees dead From October1995 to November of 1996 there were a lot of assai nation attempts on Tommy’s life. There were even a few on Mercedes too. Most came from other idiots, who thought they could take Tommy out, then take over Vice. But, there were some that came from some allies: Dec. 25, 1995, Four Haitians w/ laser scoped rifles, shot 16 armor piercing rounds through the Vercetti’s limousine as they pulled up to a charity Christmas dinner at 447 Colonial Drive, in Down Town. The rounds penetrated the limo, but didn’t hit anyone. Police later found the four suspects dead. They were torched by a flamethrower. The thrower was sitting next to the chard bodies. January 28th, 1996, 7 Wannabe’s driving a phoenix, two Bobcats, & a Personnel, attempted to run Mercedes off the road. Mercedes was driving home from the doctor’s office, in Down Town. She was driving her Cheetah, when a Phoenix w/two boy in it drives very erratically around the Cheetah. This made Mercedes drive faster, which is what they were accepting. The phoenix kept up with the crazy driving until the two Bobcats arrived. The Bobcats pumped he car a few times. Finally her car veered off the road, hitting 2 pedestrians, through a traffic light post, & onto a parked BF-400. Four boys got out of the two Bobcats w/tec-9s & .45 automatics. They start shooting the car, until they notice it’s bullet proof. Mercedes body guards were behind her, driving a burrito. They got three flat tires from the help of the Personnel driver. With the help of a homing device in Mercedes car, the Vercetti Strike Team arrived with-in 60 seconds after her car veered off the road. The Strike Team uses the Hustler. One Hustler holds four people. How is this possible you ask? Well the Hustler holds the driver & the front seat passenger, right. Since there is no second seat the other two men stand & hang on to the car, by using the car’s reinforced step bar; just like they used to do in the 1920’s-1940s. Anyway, the team arrived in two Hustlers, did a drive by killing half the wannabes, rescued Mercedes, & Drove her home in a Mafia Sentinel w/ a Strike Team escort. June 29th, 9:49pm Tuesday night, Tommy & three of his bodyguards, left a card game on Cuban turf. He was only two blocks away from Sunshine Autos were he had parked his car. With one block left to walk, at 9:57pm a group of 20 Cubans & 3 ex-swat members, surround Tommy & his three body guards. The without warning the 23 bad guys open fire. Paul, a Vercetti bodyguard falls to the ground, dead. Tommy & the two others, duck down, behind a store side wall & some crates. Both sides exchange fire for about a half hour. At that time 10 of the Cubans were gunned down & 7 others wounded. Will, another on of Tommy’s guards was dead. He died from too much blood loss. Danny, the last guard is hit in the left shoulder. Tommy was shot in the chest 8 times, but he was wearing a vest so he was fine. But he had one bulletin his right arm. Tommy played his cards right on this one. Instead of calling his Gang for help, he called the police. Within 5 minutes of the call Sonny Crocket & Ricardo Tubbs along with the Vice City Police & Swat showed up. The police & swat covered Crocket & Tubbs, while they run to & cover Tommy & Danny. 10 Minuets later the gun battle ends. 2 police men died, 3 swat officers wounded, & all 23 bad guys were KIA. Oct. 31st, Mischief Night, 6:00pm, Saturday, Tommy & Mercedes are at there house called Elswanko Casa, for the Halloween weekend. Just two days before, in Vice Point, an owner of a popular restaurant was murdered. So when police found who did it they let it slide, because it was the Chiefs oldest son who murdered the son of a Columbian General who was well known & lover by locals. (he had 4 bullet holes in him) The shooting was filed as an accidental shooting. This drove the public wild & most of all extremely furious. On Halloween the Police chief Gregory sets up a one block perimeter around the home of the Stuetter Home. (Police Chief’s home) The time was logged in at 6:04pm, the rioting started. Cars dumpsters, crates, & certain shops were set ablaze. The rioter set man made burning roadblocks, so that the riot police can’t engage them. The rioters were equipped with RPGs, AK-47s, AK-74s, Chrome Shotguns, WWII Springfield sniper rifles, grenades, & Usis. The police have barricaded roadway, using 3 police cars each, barricades, & one swat van per barricaded roadway. The police were equipped with Chrome Shotguns, .45 automatics, Usis, & Stubby Shotguns. Within the rioters is a small hit squad of mercs. The mercs were sent by an unknown party, who must have paid, a hell of a lot of money to kill Tommy & Mercedes at that particular house. Tommy & Mercedes both had there bodyguards with them, as well as an extra 12 men for extra security. The house was a fortress. It was armed with m-60 & .50 cal. Machine gun posts. As well as searchlights, motion sensors, Bullet proof safety glass, a mix of steel & iron main gate, & surveillance cameras. With 20 guards + more always on standby, they felt safe, during this riot. 7:38pm, as the police struggle to keep rioters at bay, the mercs use there ex-military strategies & tactics to attack the Vercetti Home. While most of the guards were focused on shooting to keep rioters away, the mercs would start picking the guards off, one by one. During all of this, Tommy leaves all decision making to his head guard. So Tommy & Mercedes head into the master bedroom, for some romance. Danny, (head guard) realizes a certain amount of men are being shot at. 8:19pm the police request help from the FBI & the Army. Danny also request help, but not from the FBI or Army, but the Hunter & the Sea Sparrow. At 8:45pm ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE! Police were forced back to the perimeter of the Chief’s house, with only 8 officer left alive & out of ammo. At that time the army arrives with: 200 Soldiers with; m-16s, grenades, anti-tank launchers 5 Rhinos 20 barracks 2 Hunters 10 Cargobobs. The FBI arrived in 6 Mavericks. (Black) They repelled down & around the Chief’s house. The Army was getting pounded by the rioter, & the FBI was loosing the fight as well. 9:00pm, the rioters overwhelmed, the house & set it ablaze. The army Hunters was given permition to open fire. At the Vercetti House, there were 15 dead guards, & the mercs were starting to enter the compound. Since the Army Hunters were in the air, Danny didn’t want there to be any trouble so he ordered it to return to base. So the Sea Sparrow began to circle the house. The mercs didn’t bother to destroy the chopper cause; they thought it was for the riot. Now Tommy, Mercedes, Danny & the other 4 bodyguards climb to the roof, for an evac. The Sparrow pilot sprays gun fire at the mercs, while a Leviathan rescues the bunch. The mercs try to escape during the slaughter but…. 9:09pm, all gun fire stops. ----- The Aftermath ----- A total of 319 Dead: 59 Police men & women 57 Swat officers 32 FBI guys 34 Army Soldiers 118 Rioters 15 Vercetti guards 04 Mercs & all 5 members of the Stuetter family. (including the police chief & his son) A total of 82 vehicles destroyed: 47 civilian cars 16 barracks 14 police cars 05 Enforcers A total of 4 buildings burned down: 3 Stores 1 house (Police Chief’s house) By Christmas day 1996, the boat yard & Kaufman Cabs were rebuilt/reopened. The print works was still not done cause; Tommy did not know what he wanted to use it as, then. Tommy & Sonny Crocket ware close friends, but that wasn’t always so. Ever since the game mission Jury Fury, they had a vendetta between each other. That all changed when Tommy started to be friendlier to Sonny. After Tommy & Lance, murdered Ricardo Diaz, Tommy handed Sonny Crocket the rest of Ricardo’s Empire on a silver platter. Since then, Tommy & Sonny have been friends. Tommy would visit Sonny as often as possible on, Crocket’s boat. So when the boat yard reopened, Tommy renamed it Crocket’s Boat Yard. At times Tommy would even help Sonny by giving him & the police, light & heavyweight crooks. When ever Crocket & tubs were undercover, & Tommy was around, Tommy would always play it cool & never tip the bad guys off. It was trough, Tommy that Crocket & Tubbs busted some of Vice City’s, worst criminals. Kaufman Cabs was renamed Vercetti Taxi Service. Tommy thought that & believed that the name Kaufman Cabs died when the place was burned down. So he thought that with a new name & set-up the taxi business would be more successful. Boy was he right! February 2nd, 1997: Colonel Juan Cortez was very ill & sent for his daughter, Mercedes. February 4th, 1997: Mercedes boards a shamal with her guards & two aids, & flies to South America. February 10th, 1997: The Colonel’s Yacht arrives at the docks in Washington Beach. February 12th, 1997: 4 planes return to Vice City, from South America in 3 Shamals & 1 AT-400. The AT-400 has the ill Colonel, Mercedes, Juan’s brother, there sister, Juan’s nephews & nieces, & the luggage of course. The 3 Shamals carried all of the Cortez family’s guards & Mercedes 2 aids. June 18th 1997: Colonel Juan Cortez passed away in his sleep. He was 77 years old. June 20th, 1997 6:29pm: His wishes were to be laid in his boat cabin bed, dressed in his Hawaiian shirt, olive kakis, tan loafers, & his bible. Classical music was playing in the cabin. His yacht was set adrift, floating away into the sunset. June 20th, 1997 8:00pm: after the yacht was out of range of sight, the USA Coastguard sunk the Colonel’s yacht, as planed by Tommy & Mercedes, the day before. September 4th, 1997 Tommy & Mercedes reopen the print works. It is titled Vercetti Print Works. The Print prints a weakly news paper called “The Vice Empire”. It also prints a monthly magazine called “Women of Vice City”. Tommy’s media aids deal with the paper & Mercedes’ media aids deal with the magazine. . From September 8th, 1997-April 1st 2000, it was just life & business as usual for the Vercetti Family. March 1998: Avery Carrington was killed in Liberty City, or so you think! Some how Avery survived the attack, but faked the death part for awhile. Before I smuggled Avery out of Liberty, he found out (through me) that his apprentice (Donald Love) was the man who hired a contract killer to kill him. Since Avery was believed to be dead, “Love” took over his real-estate empire, then sold it, & bought all the media in Liberty City. (Love Media) April 2nd 1998: Avery arrived back in Vice City @ the Docks. He had taken the only safe way home, by boat. (My Export Dock in Portland) Tommy was given the “key” to the city award; for all of his donations & contributions to the city over the years. May 10th 1999: The family was getting their mansion remodeled. Tommy & Mercedes stayed @ one of there residences of/at 3321Vice Point Blvd. They stayed there until the completion of there Estate, a year later. June 1st 1999: 30 Vercetti guards land @ Francis International Airport. They are watched by my new allies, the Yakuza. The Yakuza has established a safe haven for my friends. The Vercetti family is to stay @ my now half owed apartment complex. June 7th 1999: The Vercetti Family was getting packed & ready for a month long vacation in Liberty City. -5:00pm: They landed @ the airport. -6:00pm: They landed @ my hotel’s roof helipad. -6:30pm: They were all settled in their rented (free of charge), penthouse. Once the kids were settled & unpacked, Tommy & Mercedes walked up to our guest entrance of our penthouse. (We use the private service elevator to get to the other levels.) -7:00pm: Tommy & Mercedes signed our guest book as they entered. We greeted them @ the door. We gave them the grand tour of our home. I brought Tommy to my office & we talked for till dinner time. -8:12pm: Dinner was served. My godchildren joined us as well. -June 8th 12:00pm: Tommy I drove to the cemetery to visit my mother. We both said our peace. As I was sitting on the bench near my mother’s grave, Tommy saw a man who looked like my father. The man was slowly walking back towered his car. Tommy approached the man & said “Bob, Is it you?” The man turned around & quietly replied “Yes, Tommy! Yes.” I walked over & Bob said “My boys!! My beautiful Sons!!! I have been waiting for this moment for years.” Tommy & I looked @ each other & we sat down on a near by bench. My father told Tommy & me that we are brothers. @ First we thought that my father was joking, but that was not the issue. Apparently our father married an Italian woman named Marie Vercetti back in 1946, after he was discharged from the army. They lived in a small apartment above the bakery our father owned. After Marie died in 1958, Tommy was given his mother’s name due to the fact that our father way Irish. Our father thought it would be better if Tommy had a real Italian name instead of his Irish Italian one. (O’ Stevens) Then 3 months later our father sent Tommy to live w/his best friend Papie Staxx because our father was in trouble w/the Diablo’s. Then our father told us that in 1959 he met an exotic dancer named “Dolly”. They eventually dated for a while. He said “& one day she came to my bakery & said that she was pregnant & that it was mine. I just couldn’t get married again so I set her up w/some cash & an apartment above the now Pay N’ Spray. (She used to live w/a roommate in a Shit hole)” He added “Even though I didn’t marry you mother that didn’t mean that I didn’t care for her.” Our father told me then that he was @ the hospital when she was giving birth & that on my birth certificate it said that he was my father. He attended all my birthday celebrations up until I was 4 years old. After that, my mom thought that it would be to confusing for me if my father was only here on my birthdays. But now that I think back, Bob (my father) was always kind to me gave me little gifts when I went by the bakery, which was daily. -4:00pm: We drove our father back to his apartment in the red light district. We put our father in bed & told him that we’d be back the next day. -8:00pm: @ diner Tommy & I told our “girls” that we met our father & told them the whole story. July 10th, 12:00pm Tommy, Mercedes, V, Chris, Joseph, Naomi, & me drove to Portland to meet our father. But when we got there no-one answered. So we waited there for about an hour until finally someone from across the way, asked us if we were here to see Mr. O’ Stevens. We said yes! He said that he collapsed on his front steps that morning & died of a massive stroke. Tommy & I (alone) drove down to the morgue & had reservations for him to be buried next to our mothers. (Oddly enough, my mother & Tommy’s mother were both buried next to each other) -July 13th Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties: Tommy took me out w/ my soon to be brother & father in-laws to a gentlemen’s club in Torrington. Mercedes took Naomi & her mother to a spa in Bedford Point. -July 14th Wedding Day: It was my wedding day. Tommy was my best man & my 2 godsons & my brother-in-law were my groomsmen. Mercedes was Naomi’s maid of honor & V, Mrs. Tokmi, & Naomi’s best friend were her bridesmaids. We had a traditional Roman Catholic wedding. -1:00pm Naomi & I were pronounced Husband & Wife. We kissed, walked down the isle, posed for a few pictures, ran down the Church steps w/rice being thrown down on us & entered the Stretch Limo. -1:30-7:00pm: we had a marvelous reception. The Vercettis gave us a house in Paradiso, San Fierro, San Andreas, stock share in the Four Dragons Casino. The Tokmi family gave us protection, love & money. -July 31st: The Vecetti family returned home. April 1st 2000: Tommy has 30 awards; 1. The annual “Vice Fast Boat” race; he won a total of; 15 races so far. 2. He was man of the year; 6 times 3. Tommy also received 8 other awards for various things. October 17th 2000: Joseph’s & Veronica’s 16th birthday bash: October 09th 2000 3:27pm, (Eight days before): Tommy leaves Vice City, on a business trip to Las Venturas, San Andreas. He was invited to the Four Dragons Casino, by a Mr. Kent Rosenberg. Four hours before that, 20 Vercetti agents land @ Las Venturas International Airport. 4 agents’ checkout the Casino setup, to see if is legit. 6 agents seek out four possible safe houses/places for emergency safety. The last10 agents secure the airport & transportation for this event. The setup is ready: 4 houses are secure (rented); 1. 4478 Pleasant Way in Prickle Pine. 2. 979 Rockshore Dr. apt. 12, in Rockshore West. 3. 2 Corner Lane. In Montgomery 4. 112 Poplar Rd. Las Noisy Runway Motel at Las Venturas Airport. 5 Vehicles; 1. One Stretch (limo) 2. Three Sentinels 3. One sky blue Maverick The agents had let Tommy know that the meet was legit & everything was set! As Tommy landed, the limo & the two sedans met Tommy @ the end of the runway. Tommy’s agents drove him to the Four Dragons to meet Kent & Woozie. It was/is unknown as what was said or happened at the meet. All I know now, today, is that Tommy is a partner of Woozie’s Casino & a stock shareholder. For the next 6 days Tommy, Kent, & Woozie met with each other & traveled the state. Tommy even met another friend along the way, a Mr. Carl Johnson. (CJ) I turns out that Tommy & CJ lived/stayed in the same neck of the woods (so to speak), at different times though. Tommy & CJ stayed close after that meet. (So I heard) It is my own opinion that the main reason for Tommy Vercetti going over there was to see an old friend, make a new partner, & plan one of the best sweet 16 birthdays known to man! Tommy meeting CJ, to me was just another bonus. The Birthday plan was: 1. Pay the city of Las Venturas & a lot of people to participate in the big event. 2. Close the Las Venturas strip down to all traffic except there’s & other VIPs. 3. Pay for the god dang best cleaning & maintenance crews, to clean up & fix the strip. 4. Make the strip Lear Jet landing ready/possible. 5. Rented a newly built Casino 6. Have a mile wide secure perimeter with a mile wide “No Fly Zone” to all other aircraft except there’s. From what I remember, the party was a great success! The party was a VIP & invitation only event. It was rumored that all others who tried to gain access were shot. Wait a minute, that can’t be right! Ah, who knows! The event (16th b-day) lasted a full 24 hours! It was said that over 1800 people attended the event. Naomi & I gave both Joseph & Veronica the new ’01 Manchez bike gta:???. Tommy & Mercedes gave her lots of other gifts including an all new ’01 Mesa Grand concept gta:???. --THE AFTERMATH-- 129 family members; (every member of the Vercetti/Cortez family) were at the event. 690 Vercrtti Men; Agents, Bodyguards, Servants, & Pilots/Drivers. 871 Guests; friends, colleagues, casino VIPs, & city officials. 1120 Law Enforcers; 1030 San Andreas army/air army national guards troops, 20 FBI agents, 20 local Swat team members, & 50 police officers. October 30th 2000: The Vercetti Family returns home to the always beautiful Vice City! June 4th 2002; The Vercetti Family moves into there remodeled Estate. + Tommy & Mercedes celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary. (They held a tiny event, just the two of them) July 11th 2002; Thursday 9:00am; The Vercetti Family boarded 3 of their Shamals, to Los Santos, San Andreas, for vacation. Tommy, Mercedes, & two of their guards were aboard the last plane. 5 hours later all three Shamals enter the state of SA. Tommy’s plane took-off ten minuets later than the others, & when they entered the state of SA, there was a heavy fog storm. Their plane (at the time) was flying North-South. @ That time they were flying over Las Payasdas, Bone County & into a big sand storm. They accidentally fly over the NO FLY ZONE & a S.A.M. shoots them down. The Shamal lost both engines, one due to the storm & the other to the missile. They landed/crashed on the railroad tracks, just south of the NO FLY SONE. Both pilots & one guard were killed in the crash. Tommy, Mercedes, & three guards were alive then. They unload the survival gear & move to the rear of the Cluckin’ Bell. The Gear: Tommy; tactical vest, m-4 w/ammo, 2 grenades, an Uzi w/ammo, a knife, a gi flashlight, & Medical Equipment pack. Mercedes; Covert/tactical Uniform, duel silent .45 auto, knife, a laser scoped sniper rifle, & night vision goggles. Guard 1; Tactical Vest, m-4 w/ammo, 4 grenades, a gi flashlight, & a knife. Guard 2; Dressed like a cop, with .45, chrome shotgun, nightstick, & a tech 9. Guard 3; Dressed like a swat officer, with an Uzi, .45, 2 teargas grenades, & a Ruger w/ammo. The mission was to: 1. Acquire 1-2 vehicles for transport. 2. Use GPS to locate Las Santos. 3. Travel to destination. 4. Recover from what just accrued. 6 & ½ minutes later, a Freight train carrying top secret stuff smashed through the jet, & derailed right after. The train had 15 Army troops on board, with 2 Cargobobs above, which holds anther 6 troops each. Anyway, the way I heard it happened after the derailment, one chopper was knocked down buy debris, from the jet. The other chopper landed & began to secure the area. Local Sheriff Deputies began to help secure the scene too. With-in minutes after that fire, ems, & some more army troops arrive. A perimeter was set-up from: The corner of Sherman Rd. & Fallow Turnpike. (Cluckin’ Bell corner), corner of Sherman Rd. & Nothin’ Down Here Dr. (by the Lil’ Probe Inn), & at the area of the truck stop on Fallow Turnpike. In the parking lot of the Cluckin’ Bell were 2 ploice Ranchers, 1 Wayfarer, 1 Journey, 3 Freeways, & 1 Huntly. (NOTE; ALL VEHICLES SAID NOW WERE GTA:SA) Tommy, Mercedes, Guard 1 & 2 were sitting inside Cluckin’ Bell. Everyone else inside Cluckin’ Bell didn’t see the group as a threat, because they see three people with military gear & 1 officer. Meanwhile, Guard 3 is surveying the area, to gather Intel on the situation. (Guard 3 is an ex-marine corp. Lt. Col.) 12 Minutes later Guard 3 radios the group saying that she’s 30 seconds away & to be ready to quickly jump into the Landstalker. -2:24pm; Guard 3 screeches the SUV to a Holt in the lot. She quickly jumps out! Tommy gets in the driver seat, Mercedes hops into the right passenger side, Guard 2 jumps into the left passenger side, Guard 1 gets in the front passenger seat, & Guard 3 climbs through the tailgate & into the back. While they all were getting in, the Sheriff Deputies noticed them & alerted the Cavalry. As the group sped off, Mercedes leaned out the window w/her rifle. She shot 5 rounds. Each round hit the gas tank of certain vehicles; the Huntly which was parked next to 2 Rangers, an Enforcer, & 2 Police cars, LVPD. After that, they acquired 3 wanted stars. The group dashes down Fallow Turnpike & on to Fallow Bridge. Guard 3 shot a Roadtrain haling an X-oomer gas tank trailer, at the entrance to the bridge, making a fiery roadblock. Then 2 choppers arrived, one a Police Maverick & the other a News Chopper. The News Copper crashed into a tree so the other Chopper was told to back off. The group takes refuge in Palomino Creek. Tommy got a hold of CJ, on the phone. CJ lets the group stay at his safe house, in that town. They arrive there on foot. They dumped the Landstalker into Fisher’s Lagoon. They left most of the guns & gear in the SUV. They were wearing their regular outfits w/only a concealed .45 & knife, each. Once inside they rested for awhile. - 4:19pm; the fog was really heavy. It’s been raining for 2 ½ hours than. Apparently from what I remember hearing from RNN (RockStar New Network), It was raining on & off for about a month or so, there in Las Santos. CJ arrived 10 minutes later w/some home boys. CJ told Tommy that the police fond the car abandoned in the lake & that they’re searching the town, for them. In the garage, CJ has a bulletproof Patriot w/winch, gta:sa. CJ, Tommy, Mercedes, Homie 1, & Guard 3 get into the Patriot. Two other groups of 2 set off to distract the lawmen. Both groups had one Homie & one Guard, equipped with one MP5 each. Both groups used the Quad bike. - - 4:37pm; (Over the radio) “This is a special new bulletin! Warning! Due to the large amount of rainfall over the past month, most roads will be closed! Landslides have already accrued; crippling curtain parts of the Interstate Highway 1. Major flooding has washed away some roads & bridges along with land. Residences are told to stay indoors & ride out the storm. Police & the National Guard have been dispatched throughout Red County, to maintain order & help evacuate if needed.” The reporter also said the following; “Also be on the lookout for 5 people wanted for murder, grand theft auto, destruction of property, & evading police. They were last seen by Fisher’s Lagoon. They are very armed & dangerous! So if you spot one or more, contact you local Sheriff’s Department, stay away from them!” CJ knew that this was going to be a tough task. -4:40pm; the next door neighbor heard the new bulletin, & contacted the authorities. The group heard the call come in on their police scanner. They had 4 wanted stars. The two groups on the quads (bikers) rode off to scout & distract the cops. The scouts said that they area was swarming w/cops, & that the National Guard has the major roads blocked. Their only way out was an off road trail, that was very unsafe, due to the storm. They raced out the driveway & turned left, then right, than left again & then strait, until they were boxed in. They all got out & started shooting @ the cops. (The best exit point was small ally/parking area in between two homes, but it was blocked by an Enforcer.) The law had the tools for a successful 4-way roadblock, but lacked the manpower to enforce-it. The number of cops was dropping rapidly. The Lt. called for the National Guard to reinforce them. Soon 2 police Mavericks hover over the scene. Tommy picks up an Uzi from a swat officer, & began to lay down suppression fire. CJ, then took out a RPG w/4 extra rounds, from the Patriot. With the Army a block away, CJ aimed, fired, & shot down both Mavericks with one round. Both choppers spin around & crashed down on the law. Guard 3 moved the Swat Van out of the way & quickly raided it, as well. She supposedly took 3 body armor, 4 more .45 mags each, 2 Uzis, & a sniper rifle. The group then, climbed back into the Patriot, & made their escape onto the muddy terrain. From there they drove strait & over a small rocky hill & onto the trail. The trail sits next to a pair of RR tracks. At the time the Brown Streak RR did not know about the landslide that laid on-top of the tracks. Well the “gang”, was driving up the trail & over a narrow bridge that goes over the track, & once they got over they slid down the mudslide path & almost went over the cliff. -5:10pm; the train exits the tunnel & derails due to the landslide. The front passenger car stops just 4 feet from the Patriot. Mean while, the two Quad Bike teams escape Palomino Creek & drive South East to Dillmore. Dillmore, was completely flooded. The two teams couldn’t see the flood waters, & drove strait into it. -5:30pm; the train wreck survivors, make way back through the tunnel to meet authorities & rescue. Tommy, Mercedes’, CJ, Guard 3, & Homie 1 traveled w/the train passengers through the tunnel until they came across an access door. Guard 3 used Mercedes’ silenced .45 to shoot the locked door’s lock. Apparently it led to an escape ladder that goes to the surface. The now “old” escape ladder/hatch led to North Rock near an old multipurpose cabin, which was re-reinvaded for what I herd was the 16th time, now. @ That time it was a FBI safe house, though due to the storm it was locked up. (Meaning no body was home) The group broke into the cabin & settled down for the night. Meanwhile back @ Dillmore, the two teams are hurt badly. When they hit the water, they went fly’ in! Homie 3 was dead, Homie 2 was slightly wounded, Guard 1 was out cold, & Guard 2 had a broken back. Homie 2 left Dilmore alone, to find help. 10:00pm; Homie 2 was running as fast as he could, from a renegade army platoon, headed back to Dillmore. 12:25am; the Storm is now gone. 8:00am Fri. July 12th; the group were awake & ready to go when they heard (over the police radio): Officer:”Ah, Sgt! I think it’s time we call of the search for the 5 wanted men.” Sgt.: “Why’s that, Dan!’ Officer: “Well Pete, the suspect vehicle was just found at the bottom of the cliff; hear by the tracks, destroyed by the weight & impact of the locomotive from the train wreck.” Sgt.: “Body count?” Officer: “10 Sir!” Sgt.: “10-4“ Sgt.: “Sgt. Pete Tomas to all law authorities Thanks for your help in searching for the 5 wanted men. We found them dead this morning. “ State officer: “‘bout f**k’en time guys, gees!” With that said, Tommy used his cell phone to call his kids, to let them know their ok. Minuets later, 4 FBI Rangers, 2 Sheriff Rangers, & 2 Ambulances, converse on the broken into, safe house. The house had a silent alarm, but the Feds couldn’t get up there due to the storm, until now. At the time the conversing law thought that it was just some stranded people from the storm. Ok! Here’s the situation: (Inside): Tommy had an Uzi w/2 ½ mags, a .45 w/3 mags, Armor & a knife. Mercedes had a bolt action rifle, a silenced .45w/ 4 mags , Armor & a knife. Guard 3 had a .45 w/4 mags, & a knife. CJ had Uzi w/3 mags, a Desert Eagle w/8 mags, 6 Molotov Cocktails, & Armor Homie 1 had a Stubby shotgun w/20 shells, a..45 w/ 2 mags, & a Tek-9 w/4 mags. (The Plan): The plan was to hide the big weapons, & conceal the smaller ones on them. To let the law in & just act cool, but more like storm survivors. Then attack! (Outside): 16 Feds carrying MP5s w/4mags each & .45s w/ 4 mags each. 5 Sheriff Deputies who had a .45 w/4 mags each, & 2 of the Deputies had a chrome shotgun as well w/12 shells each & 4 Paramedics. (The Plan): The Law arrived from two different locations & already a plan. Two teams: Team 1; 2 FBI Rangers, 1 Police Ranger, & 1 Ambulance. (front) Team 2: Ditto. (back) Show Time: Both Fed teams enter the cabin, from the front & the rear. They call an “All Clear”. Just then, the Feds stand down. The team leader calls their boss that everything is fine. 2 Deputies & the Paramedics see the condition of the group. 8:30am; the group was given some food & drinks & the medics treated their wounds. By that time 2 of the FBI Ranger had left the scene. Tommy & Homie 1 were outside chatting. Guard 3 & Mercedes were inside preparing. CJ was well know in the parts of the state & was distracting the Deputies. The rest of the feds were around, patrolling. This was it! None of the Law was near any radios. Tommy & Guard 3 used their knives to cut the throats of two Deputies, & then Guard 3 used Mercedes’ silenced .45 to kill the other two, before they could react. But then a Fed comes around & sees the Deputies dead. He tapped the trigger! Tr-Troo! Guard 3 was shot in the arm & shoulder. Mercedes quickly reacts by shooting the Fed in the head, with the sniper rifle. That alerted the other Feds. Homie 1 & CJ took care of the rest. The medics were tied up inside the cabin during that battle. 9:14am; CJ drops Tommy, Mercedes, & Guard 3 off at their Manson Rental @ 22 Dream Home Rd. Richman; Las Santos SA, 00000-000 (Know one knows what happened back in Dillmore with the two teams.

The Party was held @ the Family’s Mansion. I was one of 268 guests that were invited/attended the party. There were other special guests that came as well!! Such guests as: The Johnson Family (from San Andreas), Kent Paul, Governor Alex Shrub, & Mayor Donn’el Dukw. I flew Down to The party from Liberty City, & was picked up from the airport. Anyway, the party was a blast. It was a private party. Even the dang paparazzi couldn’t get close. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well that’s the Story, so far! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Now you’ve probably noticed that there have been some references to “me” in the story. So, well here’s my short story: Name: Robert Schmitt Wife: Naomi <Tokmi> Schmitt Occupation/businesses: Owner of; importing & exporting, two pay N’ Sprays ‘87-‘01, & co-owner of the Staxx Plaza Hotel. –Note: I’ve even had my most successful business (A gambling hall), destroyed back in ’98 when a man who I’m not going to mention, blew up two-four blocks of businesses (Fort Staunton), to make way for a new building development. Current City: Belleville Park; Staunton, Liberty City Born In: (Portland) Red Light District, in 1960 Gang Relations/affiliates: The Forelli Crime Family ’69-’98, The Vercetti Family ’87-present day, & The Yakuza ’98 - present day. About me: I’ve been a close friend of Tommy’s since before he was arrested. (Back here in Liberty City) We lost contact for about a year & a half after he got out of jail. In that time I remember reading in the paper & hearing on the TV about all the activity going on in Vice City. For most of the activity I thought to myself “Tommy you crazy SOB, what are you doing!?” & then when I heard that Sonny Forelli was going down their, I knew @ that point that Sonny was a dead man. The Forelli Family just didn’t/doesn’t know what Tommy’s capable of. August 2nd 1987, I get a phone call from Tommy. He wanted me to be his best man @ his wedding. He sent a plane to pick me up. While I was down there I set up an import business for myself, w/Tommy’s help of course. I was living down there from 1987-1992. In that time, I became god parents to Tommy & Mercedes’ three children & I did other stuff wile I was there too. Today, I live back here in Liberty City. I usually go down there twice a year to see everyone. Veronica used to come up her to compete in the annual “Dirt Bike challenge”, but that all stopped back in 1998 when all motorcycles were banned from the City.

  47. TM, I half agree. As we've said before, nobody has a "right" to use this forum. You shouldn't think of it as being banned, but that the rest of you are allowed to use Chris' private website. If you abuse it, disrupt it or ignore his staff, then that permission is taken away. 4 years ago, TGTAP was a very different place. The staff did whatever they wanted, they banned people every day just because they annoyed them, and people were unbanned the next day by a different staff member. It was chaos. Now, we have proper guidelines, mature staff, and even a Restricted group so that people don't have to just be banned. However, Raybob is not most-people. Saying he's going to leave then not leaving is a CLASSIC cry for attention. Most normal people would eventually get the message and leave, but Raybob seems to want to stay. I'm not sure whether he wants to be an equal part of this great community, or if he just wants to be king of the noobs. If you DO want to stay, live by the rules (like everyone else manages to), and we'll get on just fine. We're not asking you to be saints, just don't be a dick. How hard can it be? I think we've done everything we can to help Raybob. We've given him dozens of chances, never banned him, explained what he's done wrong. What more can we do? It's entirely his choice which way it goes now. TM - I agree we should do the right thing for this forum and all its members. If the forums would be a better place without Raybob, then banning him would improve the experience for everyone else. That is the line he is about to cross. Raybob - You will not be taken out of the Restricted group until you have proved yourself to be a decent member of this community. I promise you won't stay in it forever, but which direction you go in is up to you.
