Played Grand Theft Auto V, which in turn made me want to play GTA: The Lost and Damned. Not to mention I've just started watching Sons of Anarchy (been wanting to watch it going on 2-3 years now, only on Season 1).
So I want to try out a biker roleplay. I'm not wanting to make a carbon-copy 'Sons of Anarchy' or 'The Lost and Damned', I want to be original, interesting, you know. So I'd like help coming up with some ideas.
But the basic idea is that I'll be the President (or Vice President, depending on which storyline I use), for obvious reasons (I'll be hosting the RP). Everyone else will be important to though, as some of you will be the Secretary, Sgt-at-Arms, Road Captain, and Treasurer. We'll have Patched Members to if we get more players, some of you can be Prospects if you want. And to fit in, no female main characters; you can have minor characters you control, 'Old Ladies', but that's your business.
Anyway, as a club, we'll have votes to determine how it should be run and depending on your rank you're playing as will determine what you do within the club (the Road Captain will be in charge of planning routes, Sgt-at-Arms will lead attacks and handle weaponry, etc). It's possible to defect, split up, cause civil war, cause war with another faction, any number of things - it's a player-driven roleplay where your actions WILL count. And expect lots of drama.
Some storyline ideas I had are:
a) We're an existing MC and we start off in the middle of our existence and go from there.
b) Our President just got imprisoned, and now our VP has to find a way to keep the club on the right road.
c) We're bikers from other MC's, but we've been incorporated and patched over into a new chapter for another MC after our own MC's suffered losses, so we're new friends.
d) We're friends/strangers who just decide to create an MC one day.
Any other storyline ideas are welcome.
President - Leads the club, makes big decisions, the 'big boss'.
Vice President - Second-in-command, only outspoken by the President himself, leads when President is away.
Sgt-at-Arms - Enforces any rules and laws in the club, leads attacks, handles the weaponry of the club.
Treasurer - Keeps up with and legally owns property of the club. He also keeps up with the amount of money the club has and how much everybody gets paid.
Secretary - Keeps up with who is in the club, what's going on, keeps tabs on associates, and is practically the 'information basket', knows the history inside and out.
Road Captain - Knows his way around the roads and outlying areas, plans routes, provides transportation when needed, designated driver of vehicles.
Patched Member - Not a 'senior title' like the above members, but a respected and fully-patched member of the club.
Prospect - Newcomer who has yet to prove his worth to the club.
Old Lady - 'Property' of one of the bikers, and that rule is respected, so no one else can abuse or mess with someone else's old lady.
Hangaround - A Hangaround is a woman who spends time at the clubhouse, but is not an Old Lady. More or less a whore for the guys.
MC - MC means 'Motocycle Club'; therefore BAMC stands for "Black Angels Mototcycle Club".
Clubhouse - The Clubhouse is a gathering place, where all members can hang out, relax, talk, joke, party, that kind of stuff. It's a base of operations.
Patched-Over - When another MC 'takes over' (not normally violent; it's like a respected take-over). They remove their old patches and names and must don a new patch and name, they become a new chapter of the other MC.
