"In 1950's New York, nobody gave a shit about no one!" said Tommy Resturicci, Don of the Resturicci family. "The Giovanni family...kill all them fucks!" In Crime Stories, is a on-going war between The Resturicci and The Giovanni families of THE SYNDICATE (A global network of crime bosses.) Each boss established their union with the other families. "But in order to dominate the street, you gotta play a little dirty." - said Frederico Giovanni, Don of the Giovanni family. "The other families ain't got shit on us, do you understand?" continued Frederico. You have to choose a family. The war between both the Resturicci and the Giovanni have lasted for years. Each fighting for supreme control. The police department are on both payrolls.
"The best coke around. You need it I got it, capeesh?" - Tommy Resturricci.
The war stood still, once Frederico Giovanni was murdered...Newspaper spread the news...[[GIOVANNI CRIME BOSS MURDERED BY RESTURICCI!]] The city went nuts. Even though Frederico was a drug lord, he also contributed help funds to the cities youth programs. All the hype granted the Giovanni complete hatred for their adversary. The state government forces their departments to break payroll and arrest as many family members as possible. Resturicci and Giovanni. The violence between the two families had turned the underground life into a warzone. " You're gonna have to choose. If you don't, get the fuck outta here." - Frederico Giovanni.
1.) Choose a family. 2.) Two weapons can be carried at a time. One primary, one secondary. However, you are only to have one side equipment (ie: grenades (4 max), molotovs (4 max), C4 (1 max) etc.) 3.) Each character are free to have one default vehicle upon entering the rp.((Note: Try and ignore the year of each car...))
1. 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV 2. 2005 Porsche Cayenne S 3. 2005 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 4. 2004 Cadillac Seville 5. 2005 Hummer H2 6. 2001 Mercedes-Benz ML430 7. 1996 Cadillac DeVille 8. 2006 Chevrolet Corvette 9. 2003 Ford Thunderbird 10. 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis
4.) Help your family kill the other, or fuck off! Capeesh?
- The Resturicci Mansion [Members of the Resturicci family, will reside here. Don't think you're safe when you're relaxing. A raid can happen anytime. Whether it be Giovanni or the FBI. The mansion is located near the west side of Brooklyn. You can also buy weapons here with the family's merchant.]
- The Giovanni Mansion [The Giovanni survived more FBI raids in their hometown, but moved their headquarters to the south side of Queens. Like I said, don't ever feel like you're safe. The government hunts for Giovanni, a lot more than the Resturicci. You are also able to purchase weapons from the family's merchant.]
- The Bank [Is where financial business is done between each family. Deposit cash, take a withdrawal. Stash money in a hidden account. With the other families struggling to keep up with the Resturicci and Giovanni, the bank has become a bulls-eye for robbery.]
((Feel free to suggest more locales.))
- EVERYTHING NEW YORK CITY.
It all comes to this. If you get into a gun fight with another role-player, the battle spans in a T1 type style. To make things easier to those who never heard about T1, I'm going to make it easier. T1 in Crime Stories requires that you complete a full paragraph fully explaining, your character's attitude, emotion, defensive moves, and offensive moves.
For example (Role-playing as Ricki)
- Ricki watched Hector walk side to side with his .44 magnum. Almost instantly, Ricki reached around to grip the hilt of his gun, planted in its holster on the left side of his waist. As Ricki slowly pull the gun, he aimed it at Hector and fired while sprinting right. He found cover behind a rundown car. He used this chance to reload his weapon.
((Note: If you do not state what your character's actions were during your post, they will be considered void if you present them later on. Now after reading Ricki's attack, whether or not Hector took the hit, or dodged, is entirely up to the guy using Hector. However, you must be logical about it. Don't godmod and think you can dodge around everything. If you're character is hit, suffering from gunshot wounds, you're character is considered dead. You would need to create a new character. However, you're able to apply the skills and weapons you gained from your previous character, to your new character.))
[[Here is how Hector would respond]]
- Hector's first instinct was pivot his foot side ways and dive behind a two wooden boxes stacked around the other. He waited until Ricki finished firing, and aim his .44 magnum toward Ricki and fired three rounds before ducking behind cover again. His gun aimed just a little above the car, to try and attempt to catch Ricki's head.
[[If Ricki decides his character was killed legit, then he will post how ruff the damage, whether or not he died etc. If you defeat someone, you are gained on more weapon slot of your choosing. You may add another primary weapon, secondary, or side equipment.]]
T2- T2 is the most basic and common form of online speed fighting. It consist's of typing a set limit of words in rapid succession in order to describe an action before one's oppenent can respond. T2 is mostly a Hand-to-Hand combat style. Attempt: An attempt is the portion of a post that preceeds the connection. It means that you are trying to hit that oppenent.
A good example of a decent 'Attempt' is as follows.
Bob shot his hand for the gut of Chuck.
Connect/Connection: A connection signifies that one has hit their target and describes what happens after the hit. If the oppenent doesn't connect their attack or dodge before your connection, You get a point. A good example of a connection is as follows.
The hand about the gut slid Chuck upward.
Range: Range is the designation of one's positon at the time of the attack. You need to move 'Into Range' before you can attempt. However, keep in mind that the range of a fist is not as far as that of a spear. You should always tell the oppenent that you are moving into or out of range before typing an attempt. A good example of getting into and out of range is as follows.
Bob kicked forward, Running into the range of Chuck.
Chuck jumped back out of the range of Bob quickly.
Void: Void means that an attempt or connect did not hit, Or the attack was negated by the oppenent. It is used often in an incorrect sense, so always verify if you have 'Voided' or not. You can void by having the attack blocked, or making to many typos. Range can also acount for a void.
Prep: Prep is something you do before a big attack, like say summoning a thunder bolt from the sky. You don't have to say you preped, However you must do it to perform any kind of ranged attack or decent magic. A good example of a prep is as follows.
Izaka slipped his hand skyward, lightning forming about his grasp as he grinned wickedly all the while.
Counter and Dodge/Block: You know what this means, As well as dodge. You need to place these between the enemies attempt and connect. A counter is more complex than a dodge but you should always attempt a counter if you think you have sufficent time. Some good examples of a counter or dodge are as follows.
Bob spun to the right, His knocking down the spear of Joe. : Block Bob jumped forward, Leaping over the fist of Chuck. : Dodge Moving his hand around the hand of Joe, Bob pulled back against the elbow and snapped it in two. : Gorey Counter
Finisher: Once you have met the required number of hits, You will perform a finisher. The finisher can be dodged by the oppenent; However you get to decide their fate. Once the finisher is complete it should detail their death or how they were knocked unconcous. A good example of a finisher is.
Izaka thrust his longsword forward witha mighty roar, Bringing it through the chest of Bob whilst rotating the blade as to shred Bob's insides.
Word Limit: The amount of words you need in order to connect/attempt/prep/dodge/whatever. When showing the word limit you will most often see it in this fashion: 7-10-7; Or the extended: 7-10-7-10-12. Ok, To break it down. 7- Words to attempt; 10- Words to connect; 7- Words to dodge; 10- Words to prep; and finally 12- Words to counter.

These guys ain't nothing compared to what I seen back when Yahoo! Role-Play wasn't taken over by sex bots.
My character (Strider Hiryu. In T2 I wasn't the best, but back when I had this character, I was kinda like the newcomer who everybody saw as dangerous in T2. Rob's Vega recruited me in his clan lol.) My friends: Rob (He rped as Vega from SF. One of the fastest T2ers ever. So popular everybody joined his own T2 style called V-Style.) Athena Silverheart (OMG. She could literally destroy you in a T2 fight to 5 in under 10 seconds. Thats how fast she types lol.)
There were many. I'm trying to revive this style, because it brought excitement.
