Mafia/Crime Syndicate RP
So I have this idea I'd like to pitch for an RP, just as he title suggests. Here's the basi lowdown.
I was thinking of the big picture being a Russian syndicate that happens to ties with old former Soviet Union which gives them a significant amount of power where personnel, equipment, information, and tactics are concerned. This "family" of individuals create their own syndicate and start warring with all of the other organized criminal factions in Eastern Europe in a bid for power and territory. This international push causes Interpol and multiple governments to invest in their destruction.
On a smaller level the syndicate discovers a lawless city of criminals and cutthroats tucked away along the coast of Southeast Asia. This the heat being turned up against them it's decided that they will settle their main base of operations here. Other big players there are he Chinese Triad, Columbian drug cartels, and a number of other criminal organizations. In a place. Where law has no meaning, it's up to those with the most power and wealth to keep order how they see fit. That's when the power struggle begins. All of the major factions are avoiding all out war because in the end their destruction is mutually assured with so many criminals looking to gain control of the vast underground connections and profits to be had from the illegal activities the costal city harbors. Dirty tactics, bloody hits, drugs, money, and a fight to rise above the rest in this City of the Already Dead.
With all of these different criminal factions we're gonna need some opposition to play around with and of course there's always those corrupt city officials that need bribing. Merceneries, Cleaners, Information Brokers, we'll need um' all.

This Roleplay is going to be put down in Advanced with high casual limit to how short your post will be. The idea behind the Roleplay is going to be have experienced and ruthless criminals that have no place in normal society working to gain power and resources within the city and sometimes even outside of that. This world of course is different than even most normal criminal organizations. There would be no qualms with killing a man in the streets or storming a building and killing everyone inside. If it brings profit of some kind it will be done by someone. It'll be a dangerous world full of dangerous people that have very few limitations to the things they can do. Needless to say if you have a young "aspiring" character he had better have a number of very loyal and experienced advisors.
I'm quite interested in this.

I'd like to play the sort of character that everyone inside the organisation looks out for her and sort of 'baby's' her but she can take care of herself and she's pretty ruthless when it comes right down to it.
I might be interested in this. Is it a modern day setting? I've always thought it would be interesting to play a more tecno-savvy type of gangster.
Yes, it is modern day. I was thinking perhaps in the realm of say 2005 or 2006. Something like that.
