*The next day you return to Del Perro, you are summoned to meet a contact, there you meet a shady character*

"Hey so you met Mike, he told me to throw some work your way.. Most guys would give their right arm to work the Mercanti Rackets.. Very profitable, however the Family is more about Respect and Standing.. Take photos of your "work" to really get ahead, i know the higher ups love to see that stuff. But remember, do the work because you enjoy living the life"

*You nod your head*

"OK i got it, so what type of work have you got for me?"

"Well we always have the 'Rackets'.. Illegal businesses such as Prostitution and Extortion need to be worked regularly, and is a good way to earn your way up. we have plans for Gang Hits that you could be involved in. There are Contracts you can chase down and rivals of the Family that you can Whack.. Your still new though so the big Family Business Jobs go through the Strip Club and your not a Mademan yet, so if you want to work bigger jobs then get on the good side of a Capo or Mademan.. and hopefully he will be able to let you in on some big action. In any case there is work for whatever mood your in, just make sure you don't bring heat back to the family so avoid the Police at all costs.. We have got this far as a Organization by being careful and not leaving evidence so you best try and continue that trend or you wont get far"


*The man then begins to school you in the ways of the Mercanti Family Business*



Mercanti Family Business:



This is a list of "Work" the Family has. All in Free-Roam unless specifically written otherwise. Actively working family business is the way to get promoted, Make sure that you take a Snapmatic to show you have completed the work you set out to do.. Eg take a photo of the Contract Victim so the Bosses have proof of your hard work, or take a photo of the unconscious Drug Dealer. gain your reputation. Members who actively put in work will be rewarded with ownership of Family Territory, Rackets or Businesses, promotions and Awards.

How this will work:

1: Read this thread.
2: Choose a piece of Family Business.
3: Inform your Online Crew Members about the plan, or do the job solo.
4: Carry out the plan.
5. Post your work on this site and/or SocialClub


Types of Family Business:


Racket:
A Family operated Criminal Enterprise that can be actively worked by Family Members. These are ongoing tasks such as collecting street tax and pimping Escorts, a great place to start.

Gang Hit:
A plan of action for attacking members of a Street Gang, eg The Ballas. (NOT in Gang Attack Mode)

Whack:
A Mafia style hit on enemies of the Family for a variety of different reasons.

Contract:
A one time special Event, they are harder to find than Whack targets. A photograph of an Enemy of the family is circulated. Memorize his physique and face as the Target may be Dressed other than as pictured. Take a Snapmatic once you do the work.. Contract is not completed without a Snapmatic. The Member with the Most Contracts will Get a Special Title: Family Hitman.  Contracts are open to anyone in the family who is looking to make a name for themselves.



Key Concepts:

Role-Play:

Stay alive at all costs.Try it out, play like you have just one life. . it means pretending that GTA has game mechanics such as evidence, and investigators, and that that actions have consequences. It means driving on the road, dressing the part.. Take it as far as you like. While playing solo you can do the rampage but at least act accordingly when with fellow Crew. Don't wait for others lead the way with Role-Play.

Getaway Vehicle:

Many Jobs will feature this. Essentially it is a vehicle of which you can use to escape a crime scene. A Crew Modded Car with Crew Badge is not a good Getaway Vehicle. A Vehicle taken from an empty Car park makes a great Getaway Vehicle as it would be some time before the owner reports it missing.


Pedestrian Interaction (Must Read):

This is a crucial concept to understand in order for the Jobs listed on the following Posts to work as designed.

Some jobs will require you to "walk into" a standing civilian or pedestrian to evoke a reaction. Based on this reaction you have different options on how to handle the situation. However, from my testing i found that this was not so intuitive to perform so to make it really clear i will set the process out step by step, once you have done it right once you will have no trouble.

If a job requires you to 'walk into" someone for about '2 seconds', or to "get their reaction", do the following:

Approach the Civilian, Hooker, Gang Member or Pedestrian in question, they must be 'Standing on the spot', not walking or running. they may be on their phone or smoking, that's fine. Approach them from a medium distance in order not to spook them.
If you pull up right next to them in a vehicle. or you aim a weapon at them first, they will have a reaction to that and henceforth wont be 'Standing on the spot' nor will they be neutral towards you.
Walk up to them and stand right in front of their face. then using only the left analog stick move it forward so that your character tries to walk through them. HOLD the stick forward.
your character will just be standing there but keep holding the stick, in a moment or two (about 2 seconds maybe longer) the NPC will step back then have a reaction to you. Usually either running away, walking away, pushing you or even pulling a pistol out.. all of these reactions are used to determine the result of your interaction with them for the job at hand. E.g. "Walk into" a man wearing a suit, if he runs, he wont pay his debt, if he walks, it means he has paid you so leave him be. If you 'run' (press X) into the civilian or you 'spook' him first, the reaction will be useless.

Below are the Available Mercanti 'Family Business' Jobs :

QuotePimping
Crew: 1+
Racket: Midnight Escorts
Info: Like any good Mafia/Gang, we have our own business in the "Entertainment" Industry. We call it the "Midnight Escorts".
Equipment: Vehicle (Ideally a Manana or Peyote etc..). Fists.
Plan: At night time approach some of our Escorts slowly. Exit the Vehicle a distance away (in order not to spook them) and walk towards them. Walk into the Escort for 2 seconds until she reacts.
Plan A: She will say something and walk away. This is good this means she has paid you your cut and is heading home.
Plan B: she says something then starts running away.. This means either she refuses to pay you your cut or worse, is under the protection of a new Pimp. In any case if she runs, knock her to the floor and take all her cash.

QuoteRival Mafia
Crew: 1+
Whack: Rival Mafia Members in suits standing in groups of 2.
Info: there are other Mafia Crews who claim business in Los Santos, some we are close to others not so much.
Equipment: Getaway Vehicle, Weapon, Gasoline or Sticky Bomb.
Plan: If you are driving around in a not so wealthy neighborhood and you spot two suited men standing and talking with each other, it means you have stumbled across two rival Mobsters. If its possible for you to do so Whack these two on the spot and high tail it out of there, avoid the cops at all costs and destroy the Getaway Vehicle if there were ANY witnesses.. if it happened while you were in a Modded Crew car, then destroy it and call your insurance and tell them your vehicle was stolen an hour ago by some "hoods"

QuoteThe Del Perro Pier Tax
Vespucci Beach and the Pier.
Crew: 1+ Members
Racket: Protection/Extortion.
Info: There are numerous Portable Retail Stands on the pier and they all pay us for Protection. However one or two of them have stopped paying us so need to be dealt with.
Equipment: Transport to Del Perro. Baseball Bat and grenade or Gasoline.
Plan: Walk up to the stall and determine reaction (walk into him for 2 seconds etc..).
If the stall holder wants no trouble he will pay up and walk away or say something nonthreatening.. this means he has paid his Tax.
If he is not there, then find the nearest person who is standing and smoking.. this is the Stall Holder not doing his job.. laziness does not equal regular income so this guy needs to be taught a lesson, give him a beating but don't kill him, just leave him unconscious.
If you approach the Stall holder at his stall and after walking into him he shoves you or says something disrespectful, handle the situation how you see fit, anything from a beating to blowing up his stall.. your call.
QuotePeeling the Union
San Andreas
Crew: 1+
Racket: Union Embezzlement and Corruption
Info: Due to our infiltration of the Union, we are often needing to send clear messages to certain loud mouths and trouble makers who attempt to enlist support in their efforts to remove us from the Unions. Other times we need to crack a few heads to get a job going, or to get a job delayes etc.. whatever the individual case may be, we are always in need of good Mercanti Muscle to pay these Workers a visit and remind them who they are dealing with.
Target: any workers dressed in high vis, working the docks or construction.. pictured above.
Equipment: Vehicle. Baseball Bat. Fists.
Plan: Approach Site in vehicle at normal pace. exit vehicle and approach the workers we are having an issue with.. And with your fists or with your bat give them a solid beating.. leave their money as this is not a robbery, its a message, and we don't want nobody to be confused.

QuoteDebt Collecting 101
Crew: 1+
Racket: Loan Sharking
Info: Some of the higher up Mercanti Members run Loan Sharking operations and they are always in need of Collectors.
Target: Any Civilian who you decide owes the Family money.
Equipment: Vehicle. Some type of weapon for intimidation.
Plan: Approach Civilian who is standing, not walking or running. Walk into them for 2 seconds to gain a reaction. You decide if their reaction means they paid, or have refused, or asked for more time. Handle the situation accordingly but remember that a dead man cant pay his debts.
QuoteHit & Run
Crew: 2+
Whack: Targeting highest ranked Online Player.
Info: Take a look at the players in your server, choose the highest ranked player outside the Family. This person is the Target. They are a Rival Mafia Mademan and must be killed quickly and without getting drawn into a firefight.
Target: Highest ranked Online player in your server.
Equipment: Vehicle, Weapon and ideally Lester's ability to remove blip from radar.
Plan: work together with your Crew to plan the Hit. There are infininite ways to approach this Whack but make sure it is done smoothly and without any Crew members dying. Use Lester's ability if possible and get right up close.. maybe draw them into a trap, the options are endless get creative. The Hit is successful if you kill the Rival Mademan and get away to safety.
