London is one of the largest and most dynamic cities in the world, with a strong international character and a diverse population of more than seven million people. A thriving cultural, financial, and political center, London is a vast city encompassing a variety of historic, commercial and residential areas, many of which remain distinct neighborhoods with a strong community feel. Traditional black cabs, the Tower of London, colorful street markets, the River Thames, chic Covent Garden, Tate Modern, Canary Wharf and the Docklands, and the expansive Hyde Park exemplify some of the contrasts that make London one of Europe’s most exciting and vibrant destinations.
At least that is what the tourist board will tell you. There is so much more to the city of London. From the street corner drug dealers and hookers, to roving gangs of football hooligans. From the Eastern European arms dealers, to the pickpockets on the Underground, to the hundreds of big businesses from all over the world that make their base there, London is a hotbed of criminal activity. A land of opportunity to anyone willing to operate outside the law in order to get what they want.
It is in to this underworld of vice that we shall go as our characters, each with their own ambitions and motivations. Some will be seasoned crooks looking to pad out their retirement fund, others will be youngsters looking for the score that takes them to the big leagues of crime. And of course, there will be the odd nutter who's only goal is to cause as much carnage as possible.
As the title says, I'd like to do a GTA style RP set in London (or rather a version of London, the same as Liberty City is a version of New York and San Andreas is a version of Los Angeles). But following the ideas from GTA 5, with various criminals coming together to pull off hiests as a team, while all having their own stories going on at the same time.
I would act as the team's "Lester" helping plan out the jobs and setting them up, as well as throwing various obstacles at you as each job progresses. There will also be plenty of contacts to make around the city (either made up by me, or you the players) who will give you jobs/sell you weapons/ try to ruin your day. I'll try my hardest to add a little tongue-in-cheek social commentary as we go along too. And even though it's inspired by GTA, and will have action and gunfights, we will still keep the focus on the characters and how they develop. It won't just be shooting and car chases.
Essential roles in the team.
1, Leader. (Yipee as Michael Bennett)
2, Gun man. (Mouzone as Cade Jones and AbigailTenshi as Alexandra Vincent)
4, Getaway driver. (TheStinger as Kurt Lewis aka Ace)
6, Support/Surveillance (Me as Joseph "Gentleman Joe" Rennie)
7, Additional (Spriggs27 as Alice Sprigg Hale, Demolitions/pilot)
I don't really want to make a huge list of do's and don't's here as I feel it can restrict play. I assume that since this is in casual section, that you all know the score when it comes to character control, god playing, ubering and the like. Of course, if you do start breaking rules, I'll let you know. If you have any questions about rules, then feel free to ask here.
