Racket Activities:

***Drug Distribution - Sales

Quote
Drug Dealing - Advanced

Racket: Drug Distribution.
Crew: 3+
Info: You have picked up an official Bag of Coke from Location C, Listed on a "Connect" thread. If you die and this Backpack is lost, it is gone and you cannot re-enable it. In any case now you wish to sell it.
Equipment: Backpack (Parachute), Weapon.
Plan: You will need to organize two other members to join you. Each of you will have a role in making sure this is sold without being too obvious. Do not wear anything too fancy or noticeable. You don't want to stand out. Go to an area in town that is suitable, be smart in where you decide to sell your product, as this may become YOUR corner, who knows... OK you have found your spot. Your goal is to sell the Bag of 100g. However you will be selling it in 10g Packages, each called a Stick. There are ten Sticks in a Bag.

Bag Man: One member stays off the street maybe in an alley way or somewhere not visible from the streets. note the exits in case something happens. This member must have the Bag (Parachute/Backpack) equipped. Backpacks CAN be passed by standing next to each other and "swapping". Bag man Must keep track of sales.

Money Man: This is the guy who will be initiating business. He will be standing out there on the street gauging peoples interest as they walk past. When a civilian approaches on the pathway, the Money Man should start walking side by side with this Civ. Maybe letting them know the great deal they could be getting, and how our shit is the best in town etc.. if the Civ agrees (RP) tell them to keep walking and your man will bring the product. take the money (but never bump them, touch or alter their course) and give the "signal" to your Runner.

Runner: Your job is to hang back, but in sight of the Money Man. You will see him walking next to civilians. If you see him perform the Action "Bro Love" this is the "signal" that the customer has agreed and paid for the Stick. Now your job is to get to the Bag man, and receive a Stick from him, 10g. Walk back out and find the Civilian. walk next to them for a moment and then perform the Action "Bro Love" to give them the Product. Do not trouble them. We will lose a good business reputation if they buy from us then come up dead or beaten. Once the Runner has given them the Stick, the Money Man should go to the Bag man and hand them the money, so that 95% of the time, the Money Man and the Runner are not holding anything incriminating. then rinse and repeat. If you see a police vehicle at any point... Make sure that the Bag man escapes. even if the Police car is just passing by. Get the bag man out of there, Money Man and Runner stay cool.. Each sale the team makes (for the sake of ease as apposed to realism) is 10g. So ten sales and the Bag is finished. Now the bag contains Money. Take that money Backpack to Location C as detailed by the "Connect" thread, All 3 Members will receive their cut. Add a Comment including the number of Bags left in the Comment before you, -1 of course. Also add a simple journal with at least three snapmatics of you dealing the Bag with your crew. One at Picking up, one at Dealing, One at drop off. Do it right and enjoy the whole process, take your time.


**Drug - Running

Quote
Drug Running 101

Crew: 3+
Racket: Drug - Running
Info:
You have been notified about a "Package" that needs to be picked up and delivered.
Equipment:
Vehicles as needed. Parachute.
Plan:
When a Ranking Member of the *Drug Wholesale - Procurement, or *Drug Distribution - Turf Management gets in touch with you. They will provide you a Snapmatic Picture of a Location, a list of destinations and the Amounts of Coke that must go to each one. Each Backpack that is obtained by the *Procurement Team is 1 Kilo (1,000g) and its called a Suit. Each Backpack that is obtained by a Turf Management Team is 100g and is called a Bag. there are ten Bags in a Suit. The Ranking Member(s) of a *Drug - Running Racket should organize the Pick up, movement and drop off as requested. Taking ALL Care to ensure that the "Suits" or "Bags" are delivered properly. Anyone who attains even one Police star while involved in doing a Drug Running 101 job will receive Jail Time! If that Member is in possession of a Package, either in a backpack or in a vehicle, that Backpack must be discarded! (Select - Disable Parachute). Do not agree to this line of work if you cannot manage that. The only time the Stars rule is not applied is when Runners are taking a Package across the Border. Drug Running is a key part of the Process.


**Pimping

Quote
Pimping 101 Crew: 1+
Racket: Pimping
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 or more, 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.


**Extortion

Quote
Extortion 101

Crew: 2+
Racket:
Extortion
Info:
The oldest trick in the Mob book.. Get someone to pay you to protect them... from yourself.
Equipment:
Melee Weapon or Pistol or Gasoline.
Plan:
With two or more Members.. Drive up to a Store. Get out, maybe crack your knuckles, then head into the store.. The Clerk will see Mercanti's coming and should start preparing his Street Tax. If he does not offer it up right away.. perhapse have a word to him.. if still nothing maybe pour a little Gasoline on his chocolate bars. Maybe quickly show him that you brought a gun with you (aim at him for a second). Highest Ranked Member collects the take. Anyone with Heat goes off separately to those who don't, till heat dies down.

*Armed Robbery

Quote
Armed Robbery 101

Crew: 3+
Racket: Armed Robbery
Info: You have found out about a certain commodity that can be stolen for good profit. However the work is dangerous, brings heat and must be treated with respect.
Equipment: Weapons, Dark Clothing. Helmet. Parachute. Vehicle.
Plan: Organize the Robbery carefully, Plan as much of the detail as you can, especially how to deal with the Heat that comes with it. Set out in non-Crew Cars. Set about the Armed Robbery, you will not need to kill Witnesses in most cases as it should be a quick, well orchestrated and effective operation, use Helmets to hide your identiy and cover up any tattoos with long sleeve clothing. Use Parachutes to symbolize Backpacks, go to the source of the Commodity and enable your backpack to take a backpack of the commodity. Everyone should get rid of the police (If indeed there are any) according to the escape plan and reconvene at a designated place etc.. changing clothes, swapping vehicles, reloading good into other transports: are all good measures to ensure a successful Robbery.


*Enforcement

Quote
Rival 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"


Quote
Hit & 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.

Store Protection By Glarke

Crew: +2
Racket:
Protection
Info: If you see two suspicious looking people standing and talking outside a Store e.g. Gas Staion or Liquor store and you think they are planning to rob the place.. deal with it, as we collect money through our Extortion Rackets and cant have others robbing these places.
Equipment:
Weapon, Getaway Car.
Plan:
Make sure your car is not in sight of the two would be robbers. get out. One of you get setup about a half a block away rom the two targets.. the other Member will come up to them say something, then aim a gun at them.. This member must do it in a direction that forces the two would be Robbers down a specific direction.. towards the other Mercanti, who will kill these two, away from the Stores CCTV cameras. take a before and after photo so we can see that they were planning on robbing it, and the location of where they were killed.. Down an alleyway would be perfect.


Quote
Traffic Stop

Crew: 2+
Whack: Rival
Info: You are driving along with the Crew when you spot who you think is a Rival Enforcer driving a car up ahead, You tail them till they stop at a redlight and you make yuor move.
Equipment: Vehicle (Ideally Getaway Vehicle)
Plan: If you see a Black Sedan you can announce that it "looks like Joey 'Two Toes' Sabatino" or whoever you like it to be. If the Ranking Member in the Vehicle gives the Greenlight, Tail the vehicle, do not ram it do not block it. when it stops at a redlight, at least one person gets out and sneaks up on the car from the side and shoots to kill. However dont forget this is a street wise Enforcer most likely and wont just sit their while you take aim so the best Free-Aim shooters will need to make the Hit. If he manages to escape before the Shots hit their mark, the driver must follow him and is now allowed to use his car to ram or block.. this is desperate measures and may result in Jail Time as it will be a wild chase. Alternatively, you could let him go and call the Hit a Failure. If you successfully kill the Enforcer, one member should jump in his car (pretending that he did not just throw the guy onto the street) then take the body and the both the cars to be disposed of.


Quote
Driveby

Crew: 2+
Whack: Payback
Info: You decide to do some payback for some crimes committed against the Family. Gangland Style.
Equipment: Stolen Black Baller. Black clothing
Plan: Decide the Target first, maybe its a Street Gang or a Security Guard, up to you. Take a Crew vehicle and get into Black street clothing. Then search around together till you see a Black Baller, ideally in a Carpark however you can Jack one, but change the License Plate at a Chop Shop if so. Whoever was driving the Crew Car should hide it in a good place. Now you are ready head towards your target as a group in the Black Baller. Driver should not drive to fast, and the shooters should lock.


*Dept Collecting

Quote
Debt Collecting 101

Crew: 2+
Racket: Loan Sharking
Info: Some of the higher up Mercanti Members run Loan Sharking operations and they are always in need of Collectors.
Target: As a Debt Collector, keep an eye out on Rackets that are involved in Loan Sharking in particular. They will list the photo of someone who owes the Family money.
Equipment: Vehicle. Some type of weapon for intimidation.
Plan: Remember the photo.. drill it into your mind.. go about your business and one day soon you may see him taking a walk..

*Vehicle Theft

Quote
Vehicle Theft 101

Crew: 2+
Racket: Vehicle Theft (Night Time Only)
Info: The simplest and most effective way to steal a Vehicle for profit.
Equipment: Dark clothing. Black Sedan (ideally)
Plan: Drive around with a partner at night time. Dont speed, don't draw attention. Search around for carparks and small streets. Anywhere that you can find a suitable vehicle that has NO civilians in sight of it. When you have found an ideal place, one Member gets out and walks to the Vehicle.. Do not pull up right next to the target in your Vehicle.! if anyone is too see the Vehicle theft they should not also be able to make out the Vehicle you arrived in. The member who is breaking in does so and Hot-wires the car and drives off towards the specified destination. The other member, in the original car stays put in sight of the Theft.. To make sure that no one saw it or no one shows up right after the event.. Once clear, both cars meet up. Now the orignal Car will drive ahead towards a Family Chop Shop, with the Stolen car a few hundred meters behind. If the front car sees ANY Police, they must warn the stolen car to turn off this road. Take the vehicle to the Chop Shop and collect your money... No Heat!
