OK, a task for anybody and everybody.

OK lets get back to the fundamentals.


Over this four day period in which the Event takes place, recon, plan, recruit and execute a "Job" of your choosing.


Heist, armed robbery, kidnapping, stealth theft etc.. any type of criminal activity that you think will net the family a little profit.


the only one is that the net result should total no more than $350,000.. so keep it small to mid range in scope. Real honest Mob work. There are really no other restrictions.. just use your good judgement.

Food for thought:

throughout the process, from Recon to Execute, be in character, RP in game.. you dont need to do an accent lol but take it slow and live the life.. this is where the true enjoyment can take place.

1 Recon:

Take a drive, ideally with a partner, and explore the city. talk about in world things and maybe meet up with a contact you have, or scout out a factory etc.. This is a chance to be creative and inhabit the mindset of a criminal looking to make a good score.

2 Plan:

Once you have found the site, or person, object or building in which you see potential, formulate a Plan in detail on how to go about performing the job. determine how many members you will need and what equipment. describe each participants role etc.. Keep in mind that it will be more difficult to successfully do a job if it demands a high number of participants. especially when you take into account Time Zone etc.. Once you have made the plan, post in this Events space as a Comment, the name of the Job that you are announcing you are going to do.. e.g. The Lumber Mill Heist etc.. This means that the job is somewhat official now and adds a little more excitements and pressure to get this one time  job completed successfully.

3 Recruit:

now you have a Plan, you should PM members who you think might be interested in the work and try to recruit the team necessary to pull the Job. If its too difficult to pre-organize a team, try to recruit right before you execute, if there are enough Mercanti's online at the time who are interested in doing your job. Again, i recommend you Plan a Job that requires only a few other members  or even just one other, to make it easier to eventuate.

4 Execute:

now that you have a Plan and a Team, you can put it into action. Once you have performed the Job, make a brief Imgur Journal of the Job and post it as a comment here, and in the usual Journal Thread. I say brief as i would prefer that while your doing the Job, you feel very present in it, as apposed to the feeling of preparing photos for later edit. Its a beautiful city... Enjoy.


I will consider this a victory if we are able to get 3+ Successfully completed Jobs in this time.

Respect. Initiative. Teamwork.

A: hello, whos this?
Phone: Hi, this is Eduardo, remember we met a while back when you were in San Rico and I helped you up there and you asked if I have any info, to get in touch?
A: Oh yes, hi Eduardo. This is a long call, are you still up there?
