    UPON READING THE FOLLOWING; YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT USE ANY OF THE VITAL INFORMATION IN-CHARACTER WITHOUT CONSULTING ME FIRST. FURTHERMORE, THE STORY BELOW HAS BEEN PARTIALLY FICTIONALIZED THOUGH MOST OF THE EVENTS DID OCCUR IN-CHARACTER & IN-GAME. The Washington Block Piru street gang was formed in early 2019, within the western Panoptican Avenue apartment complexes. It is the successor of the Brimstone Block Piru street gang that controlled the majority of Idlewood back in 2008 to 2015, their headquarters being within the Brimstone Apartment Complex. It's roots technically go back to 2005, when the Brimstone Projects's illegal activity was controlled by four individuals named Terrance Dontrell, Hakem Wright, Eric Clay and Damian Ramsey. Terrance Dontrell became the symbol of the crew and eventually they rose to power within their projects, recruiting the many impoverished residents of the area into the street gang. Before long, Terrence Dontrell was influenced by gang culture, and by following the Bloods culture, those who looked up to him soon took after him. They began to call themselves the Brimstone Block Piru, the 'Brimstone Block' part being for the roots of their gang, and the 'Piru' moniker being used as tribute to the original Bloods. Eventually, the Brimstone Block Piru grew into half of Idlewood before finally meeting its border with the Spook Town Murder Squad, a Ganton street gang. When they first interacted, they immediately became rivals. Shortly afterwards, as the feud grew more violent... Terrence Dontrell was shot and killed by an STMS member. As his right hand man, Eric Clay led the Brimstone Pirus into war with the STMS although the war would be cut short by the LSPD. Though they were targeted by the LSPD, the Brimstone Pirus were still fresh at the time, and as a result, they weren't left completely broken after the LSPD raids. The same could not be said for the Spook Town Murder Squad. The Brimstone Pirus acknowledged their victory and began to rebuild. Seeing this war from afar, was the other half of Idlewood's underground. This street gang was named the 'Mercy' projects, founded by Andre Russell. Much wasn't known about the gang however, it is known that they tried to take advantage of Brimstone when the previous war left them less then qualified. Nevertheless, Brimstone had acquired the weapons necessary to fight this new war brought onto them by Andre Russell and his gang. Unfortunately, the LSPD has used the previous war as cause to investigate the Brimstone Pirus further, and as a result, the LSPD put a stop to this war quickly. Through it's lifespan, the Brimstone Pirus were referred to by numerous names, such as the Brimtown Made Mafia, the Brimstone Block Pirus, the Brims, and Brim Gang. It also went through a respectable amount of leaders, most notably Terrance Dontrell, Eric Clay, Lavaughn Humphrey, and Kendrick Oates. The Brimstone Pirus would soon die out, as the high ranking members were met with death by the hands of the 'Mercy' street gang, or incarcerated by the hands of the Los Santos Police Department. The remnants of the Brimstone Piru relocated to the Panopticon Avenue apartment complexes, where the culture of the Brimstone Pirus would carry on. UPON JOINING; MEMBERS WILL AGREE THAT ANY LEADER OF THE FACTION HAS THE ABILITY TO CK A MEMBER DUE TO ANY IN-CHARACTER REASON IF DEEMED FIT.

    GTA:V Public Beta Release Date What is the release date? This is the #1 most asked question we get every day. We have a new answer: watch the trailer above. What is the duration of the public beta? There isn't one. Once we're out, we are out. We'll continue to provide frequent script updates and when we're happy with removing the beta tag, we'll do so. Is there any wipe involved in the transition from public beta to full release? No. Will my MTA/OwlGaming account work for V? Yes, your account is shared across both games. Will there be stat transfers from MTA to V? No. While your core account data is shared (e.g. username, password), nothing else is. The logic behind this decision is that V is a separate universe from MTA/GTASA and it would not make sense that characters/factions exist as is within both, vastly different, universes. Will my GCs be usable on V? Existing donator perks will not transfer over. However, any GC acquired, even prior to release, can be redeemed on V. How do I connect to the server? How do I install the modification? We will be providing a connection guide closer to when the public beta is launched. Can I reserve MTA character names? MTA Characters that have been recently used and have a large number of hours played, will be unavailable to create on V. This is to prevent users from lazily using the exact same characters and character development (which doesn't make sense in a parallel universe) and to prevent trolling. We look forward to welcoming you all onto the V server shortly! Kind Regards, - OwlGaming Game Administration - OwlGaming Development Team

    "When a man assumes leadership, he forfeits the right to mercy." - Gennaro "Jerry" Angiulo Gianfranco Costelli, born in 1888, was a man of honor in Sicily. In 1932, Costelli and most of his extended family immigrated to Chicago. The Costelli clan began extorting businesses across their own neighborhood and other neighborhoods in addition to hosting underground casinos across the city. In 1956, with the rise of Las Vegas as the prime gambling hotspot, Gianfranco decided he wanted in on the action. He sent his nephew Dominick Costelli and a small crew to Las Vegas with a large sum of money in an attempt to get in on the mafia’s action in Vegas. Costelli’s crew was able to buy into the operation of a high profile casino in 1957 after a lot of effort and persuasion, as well as 2.3 million dollars, but by the end of 1957 the gangsters controlling Vegas decided to expel the Costelli clan from Las Vegas. This was done with full knowledge that the small and decidedly powerless Costelli Family would not be able to retaliate. Vincent Botini (left) and three undisclosed associates. Captured by an FBI surveillance team, 1983. The Mafia in Las Vegas was correct that the Costelli Family would not retaliate, but instead, an outraged Gianfranco Costelli ordered Dominick and his crew to move further west and attempt to establish a new and better gambling hotspot. Gianfranco decided to establish his “Baby Vegas” in Los Santos, and in 1962, The Bighorn Casino and Resort opened its doors. As the overseer of The Bighorn Casino, Dominick became a sort of boss in San Andreas. Although he still kicked up to New York, he was allowed to establish a few street crews in the Los Santos area that engaged in extortion, murder for hire, loan sharking, and sale of goods on the black market. Gianfranco Costelli died in 1979 in Chicago, leaving his underboss Vincent Botini in command of the Chicago branch of the family. Dominick Costelli controlled the San Andreas operation until 1985 when he died of a massive stroke. In recent years, Botini’s grandson Thomas controlled the Chicago operation and had placed Stogie in charge of the San Andreas operation, including The Bighorn, in 2008. To this day, The Costelli Crime Family continues to engage in illegal gambling operations, vehicle theft, and black market trading, including narcotics and firearms. About a decade after Stogie had taken control of the San Andreas operation, he had piled up a large amount of debt with the Chicago branch, creating a minor tension between the two. In 2014, Arturo was found dead in his home with 8 gunshot wounds scattered throughout the upper-body and head area. It is assumed that his son has recently taken the reigns of operations and some theories within the family have surfaced that it was he who orchestrated the murder of his own father.

    MTA Development Blog #1 Introduction Hello and welcome to the first Development Update/Blog post for the Multi Theft Auto server. These development updates will work similar to the V updates where I will showcase features, improvements and some behind the screens stuffs the scripting team are working on for the Multi Theft Auto server. Let’s begin this update with showing off some upcoming features! ANPR System Recently @SjoerdPSV began working on a automatic number plate recognition system. The system adds ANPR checkers at each toll booth and also adds an ‘ANPR’ item which can be placed inside of LSPD cruisers. The ANPR system also adds a new section within the MDC where LSPD Officers can now add plates to which the ANPR scanners will look out for. Here is a screenshot of what the tolls triggering ANPR looks like: Vehicle Library Improvements A few months ago I began working on Improvements for the vehicle library due to the way it grabs the data and sends it to the client. The vehicle library has now been improved and also now has a search feature! Below are some screenshots of the improvement! Election Improvements As of recent there has been some backend improvements to the way the election script works, sadly these isn’t a flashy feature or anything but the new improvements allow the election system to be managed without Scripting Team involvement. There hasn’t been many public interface changes to elections but here's a screenshot of the manager GUI! Wearables The original idea came from Portside to have wearables in OwlGaming. After the split between Portside and the Scripting Team, Yannick decided to pick up the idea. Here’s his story: “After the split, I decided to pick it up. I had to start with clearing all the unnecessary functions and code that was in first. And yes, this was a pain in the ass. After I managed to get some clear sight on the script, I started with new features and upgrades to the code. As I had a lot of other things besides Owl, I didn’t really had the time to do it quick. After I managed to patch everything up, I decided to submit it for review. As I was at that time busy with my university, I didn’t really had the time to look into it. After looking into our Gitlab, I noticed I had over 40 discussions on the script. These were mainly code issues, but bugs as well. As I didn’t have a lot of time, these took ages to solve. Then I started working on it in between my lessons. As I didn’t had bug testers, I got help from DrJoseEvil. He was the guy that helped me out finding bugs and making new wearables, shoutout to him for that! So yeah, we’ve had this up’s and down’s with wearables. Let's say this script took us a year, while it could be done way quicker. Anyway, I hope this can be released soon. It needs a bit more code review before it can be dropped. In the meantime, enjoy the screenshots.” Changes to shops In the background I’ve been working on changes to the way shop system works, this includes how custom shops charge the store owner and also a new feature which allows players to add their own shop NPC’s based on the NPC limitation rule. Custom shops will be changing so you don’t have to pay them an hourly rate, instead they will take a percentage of the item on sale but will also require a minimum number of items within the store. Custom shop NPC’s will also cost a fee to install, this will be handled via the shop manager that I’ve created, I’ve attached a video & screenshots below that showcases this. There will be more media for this to come, there isn’t any new UI changes to the actual custom shop windows as of yet. (Maybe in a future dev update ) Bug fixes While we’ve not been working on features some of us have been working on bug fixes for various bugs found in the server. If you do find a bug on OwlGaming please report it at https://bugs.owlgaming.net OR use the Bug Reporter tab in F1. Looking to contribute? The scripting team is always looking for new talent, if you have a decent understanding of MTASA Lua & MySQL please complete the Scripter Qualification Test and Forum PM it to @Chaos . Final Notes Thanks to @Chaos, @Yannick, @Eloquent and @SjoerdPSV for all contributing to help the continuing development of OwlGaming MTA. Just as a side note the Script Update will be following this soon. Regards, - OwlGaming Community - OwlGaming Development Team

    213 Hoodlums is a long-standing African-American street gang founded during the late 1975 in the southern district of Los Santos, San Andreas. Vol I. About The 213 Hoodlums. The 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood claims Metropolitan Ave, Verdant Bluffs and shows their activity and attendance nearby districts, even though they're situated in a tight rough spot due to the fact their gang is entirely surrounded by neighboring gangs. Without uncertainty, The 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood was a figure in gang violence that increased crime rates around Verdant Bluffs, Idlewood and Commerce in the late 1980s. Residents affirmed that the gang-affected the neighborhood so critical, that it shifted the homicide rate to proportions unheard of in Los Santos. An extensive portion of 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood affiliates was promptly incarcerated in the late 90s due to the rising tensions. How the conflict sprouted is unknown to many, including the modern-day members of the 213 Hoodlums Neighbourhood. Most of those who were interned were within the ages of 13-17, they hold an, even more, greater residence in Juvenile Institutions, and Juvenile Camps across the state of San Andreas as a result of the heavy embroilment in poverty-riddled activities. Vol II. Metropolitan Ave, Verdant Bluffs Riots. SOUTH CENTRAL Contrary to widespread belief, the Verdant Bluffs District drew a low number of visitants and civilians throughout the early 1960s and 1970s. Residents at Metropolitan Ave claim that the area is hard to live in, while others completely stay away from the area. Verdant Bluffs' history dates back to 1953, at that time Metropolitan Ave, Verdant Bluffs was a multicultural neighborhood Metropolitan Ave packed with a heavy presence of Hispanic Americans, with a minority of African Americans, Caucasian, and a few others mixed in between. Even then in the midst of the early-late 60s, Idlewood possessed a very high crime rate, because of the war against the Black Panthers and the government. Prostitution, robberies and car crime (especially carjackings). In the 1980s drugs (especially weed-cocaine) became the main issues. The area is deeply under scrutiny by Police aviation, aka "Ghetto Bird" or "The Bird." Manufacturing jobs were popular during the 1950s and 1960s. However, an unplanned reduction in jobs around 1963 also helped The Metropolitan Ave Riots. Once jobs caused began declining, this depressed the area; at the same time, the concentration of poverty-stricken residents, blended with a pervasive feeling of disenfranchisement and official indifference or hostility, caused the housing projects to become a breeding ground for criminal activities. Verdant Bluffs Riots In the implacable & black southside region of Metropolitan Ave, the racial tension stretched to another level after a fight between African-Americans and Caucasian residents of the Glen Park Homes. Law enforcement arrived at the scene of the riot, and Gerald J' Henry, a Caucasian police officer interlaced in an uproar with an African-American mechanic speculated of elevating the fight. However, as a crowd of Metropolitan Ave, Verdant Bluffs onlookers watched the brutal & dishearten death of Lamar Harrison (20) conflict spread & a riot roused by residents of the neighboring housing projects, and houses who were angered after years of unfair economic and political treatments. The Home Street District Riots was privately filmed by a helicopter, footage showcases how pedestrians & Law enforcement brutally terrified the streets of Verdant Bluffs and Commerce. Multiple people were shot, beaten or arrested, individuals in those riot events eventually ranged a bigger area of Verdant Bluffs, looting stores, torching buildings and markets, brawling police and firefighters. Around 120 rioters were injured, 10 were injured. Vol III. Neighborhood. As of 2016, the 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood is still an infamous and prominent African-American street gang. Most new affiliates of the street gang who have become known to the police through monitoring and arrests are within the ages of 14 and 24. 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood appear to have a higher interest in recruiting young men and young women who are in their late teens and early 90s rather than youths who are still in childhood or early adolescence. It stands to reason that the street gang, through recruiting this relatively older age group, are looking for more experienced and seasoned members. Their territory extends a larger amount than before.Metropolitan Ave is still known for its density, as such, it should be no surprise that many of the local youth are affected by this culture either through acquaintances or family. The latter being the case for many, be it an older brother, father or uncle that had ties to the Neighborhood. Not only that, but the 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood still remain strong within the area and kept it that way for almost 45 years. The 213 Hoodlums Neighborhood is one of the most murderous gangs in South Central, according to law enforcement. Upon entering and conspiring with 213 Hoodlums you automatically agree to a Character Kill (CK) Clause upon departure of 213 Hoodlums or betrayal against 213 Hoodlums.

    The Jackals Motorcycle Club The Beginning Founded by Douglas "Sully" Sullivan, in March 2019. After leaving Nevada and the US Military behind, Sully discovered Angel Pine - Forming a quick connection with the town. Feeling a personal mission to revive the town of Angel Pine, Sully soon formed The Jackals Motorcycle Club (The Jackals). With his love for Motorcycles, Brotherhood and the road - The Jackals quickly grew, with a solid core of loyal individuals. The Jackal’s initial goals and ambitions were to be a charitable and a non-profitable organisation to put back into the community of Angel Pine; with the likes of charitable events, fundraisers, employment and more. These goals slowly but surely became clouded, with the unforeseen future of illegal distribution of contraband, such as; narcotics and firearms. The money and allurement nature of illegal activities soon appealed to the members of The Jackals. Before long, they discovered themselves travelling down a slippery slope of illegitimate acts. The Aryans Shortly after forming The Jackals, Sully was approached by a familiar face, “Kappi”. The two first met when Kappi was thrown from his Harley Davidson, by a reckless driver. Sully assisted him by the roadside, repairing his bike, and their alliance grew ever since. Being a Councilman for the neighbouring Aryan Knights MC, Kappi approached Sully with a proposition; that the Aryan Knights MC would support The Jackals MC - under the condition that Sully was able to demonstrate his ability to manage and maintain The Jackals fully, along with proving his strengths and competence towards the Aryan Knights. Now under the watchful guard and support of the Aryan Knights Motorcycle Club, The Jackals Motorcycle Club grows stronger and lasting with each day. The Future As The Jackals continue to thrive in the heart of Angel Pine, they have successfully been able to retain their founding and charitable goals in which they first set out to accomplish - however, not without the expense of remaining legitimate. Since their founding days, The Jackal’s have since been intoxicated with the unforeseen, but embraced changes of becoming a strong illegal organisation. With Sully’s family members close to being released from Nevada State Prison, who knows what the future may hold for The Jackals? ((If you’re involved with this Faction, whether that be membership, or prolonged interactions / business - you could be subject to a CK, after being heavily discussed by Faction management))

    March 2019 Newsletter Community & Script Updates We apologize for missing the last newsletter! We'll try to do better :). I will also try to prevent this newsletter from getting too long by just including the most important updates from the last two months. In mid-January we released a MTA update which is detailed here: We are very close with having another V update as well. Over the past couple months we hosted an internal beta with members of staff and community leaders from various areas of roleplay on the server to get feedback on what we are missing. The feedback we have received has been extremely helpful and we are in the final stages of the development cycle at this point. Until the V update, here's a video of @Unitts being run over to tie you over for a bit: During the beta we also added some helpful profiling statistics to help us understand the performance issues that lower end systems might experience. Now let's shift gears and take a look at some general community updates, Three GAT updates have happened since the last newsletter, the most recent one is below. Congrats to the new members joining the team! Two faction updates were posted as well. Continuing their promise to meet more often and update the community. A game night was hosted last month and it was a hit! We can't wait to do one again and we are currently voting on a date here: Community Spotlight News Entertainment Character Stories Really like the formatting on this one Factions Some shoutouts of new illegal factions! A few new legal faction threads popped up as well! Media To have your media featured in the next newsletter, submit it on the #media channel on Discord! Stats 3,167 reports handled in the month of February! (note: this does not include support tickets.)

    F/V EXPLORER The F/V (Fishing Vessel) Explorer was bought by the Burnham family in coordinance with investors to establish more line of work to the citizens of Los Santos and focuses primarily on crab and salmon fishing outside the coast of San Fierro in San Andreas. The homeport is still located in Los Santos. The vessel has a crew of six people on rotation thus creating a window of oppertunity for newer residents in Los Santos to find work, build a network and more easily set foot in Los Santos. The mission statement has always been to take in those who struggle the most. HIRING If you're interested in this line of work you can send a letter of interest to Captain SB on e-mail [email protected] ((Forum PM)) Pay and other benefits varies each trip depending on cost, catch and values. ((The fishing boat idea was brought in to create more roleplay to newcomers, leaving them with an alternative instead of i.e RS HAUL - a place where they can come to learn basic and advanced roleplay, build a IC and OOC network and at the same time have fun and get paid. The second focus is to make use of the virtual market on a legal basis)) United States Name: Explorer Owner: Sid Burnham and Timothy Moreno Operator: Sid Builder: Navenporth Shipyard, San Fierro Yard number: 342, NS, SF Christened: November 16, 2018, by Mrs. Burnham In service: 2018 Homeport: Los Santos, San Andreas Identification: IMO number: 7345134 MMSI number: 944132350 Callsign: WDE6123 Status: Active

    Development Update 9/4/2019 Now that the initial launch is out of the way, I wanted to take a minute to outline our approach and upcoming improvements around the most critical issues. The good news is that server stability is good, we've fixed the initial server crash we were experiencing on launch day and uptime as of right now is at 1 day and 13 hours. We're now moving on to fix the most RP-restricting issues. All of these changes are expected to go live within the next 24 hours, with tonight being the earliest possible release, with the exception of the weapons fixes. Vehicle issues: disappearing/streaming out, vehicles being poorly parked/blocking roadways We're going to improve this in multiple ways as defined below. Overall our goal is to both work with the RAGE team on streamer improvements, as well as reduce the unused vehicle population. Streamer Improvements We're in discussion with the RAGE team on streamer improvements and expect to be testing out a new server build shortly. While we can lower the overall number of vehicles, GTA 5 does have a hard limit on how many vehicles can be streamed in / on screen at once. Towing support The towing update comes in two parts. Part 1 involves automatic towing (via timers and/or admin commands) and the ability to retrieve towed vehicles. Part 2 will expand upon the previous part to add in a job/faction aspect to allow for manual towing. Only player owned/rented vehicles are towed. Faction & job vehicles will be respawned to their /park position. If a vehicle is occupied, or the previous occupant is nearby (e.g. out RPing a car crash), the vehicle will not be towed/respawned. No parking zones Parking in the dealership will result in your car being towed after 30 minutes, this applies to new cars. You will be warned via notification if you are leaving your car in a no parking zone. Disabling auto-park We plan to revert back to a traditional /park to make it easier for people to find their vehicles and to ensure that we have somewhere good/safe to move vehicles. We'll most likely re-introduce auto-park later as an option (off by default) Automatic detection of abandoned vehicles Currently, driving around Paleto is hard. Cars are randomly parked across intersections, in the road way, etc. We've managed to implement a system which can detect this. This allows us to automatically tow illegally parked cars until we have a towing faction (or when the towing faction is offline) as well as a simple way for admins to clean up all badly parked vehicles. You will be warned via notification if you are leaving your car in a poor parking position. Check out some examples below We're expecting that these changes will help alleviate a lot of the issues. Getting stuck in interiors We've identified the issue here and this will be fixed in the vehicle update. Client freezing We've reduced this a bit already, but we have more fixes coming in this update to further alleviate it. Weapons A few weapon bugs have stopped us being able to issue weapons to official illegal factions in any substantial quantity. Chaos is working on addressing these and we expect to have fixes in place shortly. We'd like to thank you for joining us on Owl V for our first couple of days, and for your patience as we continue to progress through our beta. Your testing has been critical to us finding & fixing these issues. We hope you guys are enjoying the script so far, lots more to come! Regards, - OwlGaming Community - OwlGaming Development Team

    A car theft ring on the rise? Created on June 24, 2019 Published by Samuel Montez The local police department is investigating a string of car thefts happened in the last days. According to the police, every theft is allegedly connected to a car theft ring which is being operated somewhere across Baine County. "The perpetrators seemingly are experienced individuals. Their actions are coordinated, swift and most importantly successful", said Mariana White, a lead investigator on the case. "We managed to retrieve a video from a local market across the street of one of the crime scene. Unfortunately, we are unable to identify the suspects based on this video alone but we can outline their mannerism and specific movements which can be crucial in our further investigation.", said Anthony Hamilton, chief of the department. The authorities are warning the locals to keep their cars locked and the alarm to be on, it may slow the criminals. Anyone with information should contact local law enforcement at 555-015-4849 or 911, Cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and $6,000 seized in a drug bust Created on July 29, 2019 Published by Vanessa Washington A three months long investigation into an alleged drug distribution network at a local housing complex led to an arrest and the seizure of large amount of drugs, cash and handguns upon the execution of a search warrant on Warren Clifford, said the authorities on Monday. Warren Clifford, a 24 years old African-American, was found in possession of drugs with an estimated street value of $42,000, $6,000 in cash and illegal firearms in his own apartment where he lives alongside his little sister Serenity, 13 years old, and his mother Tanisha, 46 years old. The search was executed as a result of an extensive investigation of the local police department with the narcotics division .It is unknown to the authorities whether Clifford's mother and sister were aiding him in his criminal activites, a further investigation will determine the outcome. Clifford was arrested and charged with possession of illegal firearms and possession of controlled substance with intention to distribute. He was immediately lodged within the county correctional facility. A bail of $45,000 was set on the charges. "Clifford has been a long time distributor who maintained his affiliations allegedly to a local gang named Sin Town Crooks in Paleto Bay and I am glad that his criminal endeavors were put to a stop by the efforts of the local authorities.", said Detective Donovan.

    The Vikings Motorcycle Club Better to fight and fall than to live without hope It all started with a simple thought, the one you only have with a rattling fuel tank between your legs and a long road ahead. Marcus Sullivan was tired of sharing the asphalt alone, and despite being inspired by the several clubs he came across throughout his travels around the US, he never felt he really fitted in with them. All he wanted was to have a sense of brotherhood that you can only get when sharing the road with likeminded people. Cattle die, kinsmen die; the self must also die. I know one thing which never dies: the reputation of each dead man Within a few days of riding around Paleto Bay, Sullivan bumped into a man called Asai Yoshimoto, aka “Jap” who he found shared his obsession for Motorcycles. After only a couple of days of knowing each other they founded The Vikings Motorcycle Club, with the goal of building their own valued club and shaping it into one that others would be inspired to join. Whilst setting up the foundations in San Andreas’ finest, Stab City, they began to recruit members to ride for their cause. Working out of a pithole of a trailer wasn’t easy for them, but due to low funds they worked with what they had, with the continuous aim of helping others and becoming a supporting role in their local area. Where you recognise evil, speak out against it, and give no truces to your enemies During a midnight ride, the three current members of The Vikings; Sully, Jap and Cheeks, stumbled across a bar on the outskirts of Sandy Shores. The building itself was large enough for the club, with a full stock of alcohol to keep them drinking for the next week. Truth be told the bar was perfect and was everything the club was looking for as a foundation. The club itself is now growing at an incredible rate with new members joining every day. With their fortune going from strength to strength only Odin himself can tell what will happen next. One thing Sullivan does know is that they will use any means possible to protect those who matter the most to the club. The Community and family.

    Upon associating yourself with the Wright DTO on an interpersonal or criminal level you automatically agree to a Character Kill clause, the leadership of Wright DTO reserve the right to CKing your character for any reason they seem necessary. You also automatically give consent to all forms of disgusting roleplay.

    Rule Discussion Subject: Kidnapping I want to...: Revise Elaboration: Okay so after having a discussion with a lot of players for quite some time now in my opinion (and hopefully many others), there needs to be some serious rules in regards to kidnapping. The current rule as it stands: Kidnapping If planning to leave a character to starve to death, one must have a CK application accepted on the character. Otherwise there must be roleplay intended to free/feed the character This means that the kidnappers could actually keep you for however long they want as long as they feed you. My argument is this is completely unfair. You're basically forcing someone to remain in that roleplay until you get bored essentially. Kidnappings are done normally to make a point or to get information usually if a CK application has been denied (and therefore this is done as an alternative to scare people). This is fine but to what extent does it end? Holding someone's character for a long length of time ruins that character, they would most likely stat transfer and switch characters because there is no point roleplaying on that alt anymore. Some could argue this is exactly the same as cking the character. So in my eyes we need to actually make changes so there are written down rules that everyone is clear on. My suggestion is either stating that a kidnap situation can only last for three days unless they've got an accepted CK application in which they then carry it out. But then I may get caught by letting them go: Simple. Being in a kidnap situation is extremely stressful and has a huge impact on someones mental wellbeing. This could actually cause an amnesia effect similar to PKing. Instead of having to injury the person or scriptwise killing them to achieve this, when someone lets someone go after kidnapping they are effectively pkd due to the stress and trauma. Problem solved. I completely understand the reasoning for kidnapping people, its all about creating roleplay but we need to have SOME guidelines to ensure people aren't being held captive just for the sake of it or as a way to get around a denied ck app. I understand some illegal players may argue this is yet again trying to limit illegal roleplay, but it's not. It's giving people the chance to do kidnappings, have actual rules regarding it and so players who ARE kidnapped also know that this isn't the full end for their character - otherwise it just ruins the fun for them and limits them as well. Something needs to be done so I thought its time I did the first step so we can all discuss it and hopefully get something lined up, because as it stands I know a lot of people dislike how it is currently done.

    Rules Upon associating yourself with The Pyrite Metal Minds on a criminal or interpersonal level you automatically agree to a Character Kill clause. The leadership reserves the right to Character Killing your character for any reason at any time. All ties to the faction should be made In-Character. Don't break the server rules. Screenshot permission is REQUIRED. Faction hoppers are not welcome. If you are not committed to play with us, then don't play at all. During your time in The Pyrite Metal Minds you need to develop your character to the fullest, this is a serious faction. If you intend on shooting and making DM videos, consider joining some other faction.

     A Statement From Your County Commissioner Office of The County Commissioner April 30th, 2019 Greetings Fellow Citizens! I would like to take a moment, to thank all of the citizens who have voted for me. More than two years have passed since that ill-fated day when, when you great people were blinded by promises by several "politicians", the American people lost sight of the most valuable assets of our past and of our County, its honor, people and its freedom and thus we lost everything. Since those days of treachery, these "politicians" have withheld the truth from you people. Dissension and evil have made their way into our midst. In the most profound lies, hundreds and thousands men and women of our fair county fell for these comforting lies, the belief in these lies have caused something to vanish and dissolve in to a puddle of political and egotistical opinions, economic interests and differences. We are racing towards the abyss. But we don’t see it. Because on TV you cannot see the abyss, you see a slack jawed "politician". I will keep fighting against these lies until not only we only see the abyss, but until we overcome it! The County of Los Santos will be overhauled into a new age of modernity. You will see technological and medical improvements all across the county, better care for our public and private buildings, fewer vagabonds on the street, a steep decline in crime and a rocket upwards in security. No more, and I repeat NO MORE will you people suffer. I am here to restore this county and bring it into a new era. In order for us to achieve this new era, I require the faith and support, of you, the American people. The support shown to us by the public, and all those who joined us showed true virtue. It was this virtue which made you, and therefore us, victorious and which in the long run, has saved the County. We have now won power in Los Santos, and it is up to us to win the rest of the people over, to incorporate the trust of the entire County, with the people in power. We must build support from our working men and women of all classes into a strong community. This will be a great struggle which may take years, but it is necessary if we want to excel and improve. Here, too, we know that if we rest, we rust, that if we stand still, we will retreat and once again, the cycle of lying politicians will happen once again. Peasants, workers, and the elites must all join together to provide the foundation for this new Administration. The government will therefore regard this as its first and foremost duty to establish what I refer to as The Hall – a community building which will also serve as a outlet for the unity of spirit and will of us all. The Hall will preserve and defend the foundations upon which the power of our County rests. We will join together at the hall and express our concerns, and protect the basis of our entire morality of our County. It will wake our people up, beyond the borders of rank and class, its sense of national and political unity, and the duties of our government. It will establish the rebuilding of our great past and pride in our old American traditions as the basis for the education of our American youth. It will help end the merciless war of spiritual, political and cultural nihilism that has been waged against us. Los Santos must not and will not drown in anarchistic communism. As I stated on April 14th, I will not back down from my pledges to the people of Los Santos. In the upcoming days, I will be assembling my new cabinet and set of commissioners. I will be meeting with agency and divisional leaders of the County to establish initial communication. In the upcoming weeks, I will be calling the District elections, as we have some vacancies. As soon as the council is full, I will begin executing my pledges to you people, I find it unfair to try to pass legislation on an empty council. I plan to host an inauguration event, it will consist of a grand parade and public affair event. We will have emergency services and myself parade from Commissioner Hill to the Verona Pier. Free food and American merchandise will be available. In other news, I would like to announce "The Fireside Chats" Program. Fireside Chats will be a free to view/listen TV and radio broadcast. Fireside chats will be hosted at least once every two weeks, during the broadcasts, I will talk about my policies and on going events in the government. I will accept questions that will be submitted in an online form to the County Government. I will make it my priority to answer as many questions each broadcast. Submissions that contain profanity and nonsense will be ignored. Klaus Wunnenberg, County Commissioner.

    What Requires A Modification Request And What Doesn't? Hey everyone, over the few years and my experience whilst being in the Vehicle Team, I’ve noticed that there’s still a grey area and confusion among players when it comes to the what modifications require an in-game report and what vehicle modifications must go through a modification request. As of now, all this information has been on a private guide, so I’ve re-done it. Here I present the up to date and revised guide: In-Game Report All the modifications that will be listed within this section can be processed through an in-game report. If you’ve RP’ed these modifications, ensure that you have all your RP logs within a pastebin and you have the generics on hand. If you’ve got everything ready, make a report via F1, under the section of Vehicle Build/Import Request so that VT members can see it and get to you. Exterior: Cosmetic modifications such as body panels, widebody kits, car aerodynamic parts and wheels (Actual wheel generics, not wheels purchased from NPCs) can be RP’ed and processed in-game, report once you’ve got the logs and the parts you’ve put onto your vehicle will be added to its notes on /checkveh. (Some of these modifications can result to vehicle stats being adjusted such as the weight of it) Interior: Changing interior components such as the steering wheel, steering wheel adapters/ quick release wheel hubs can be done in-game. These components are only cosmetic, but you can RP them for more realism. Changing the seats from factory seats to bucket seats can also be done in-game via a report, doing this will reduce the weight present on your vehicle’s stats. Handling: All suspension components such as coil overs, lift kits, tie rods, control arms, sway bars, etc can be done in-game via a report. If you’re modifying your vehicle in order to get more angle on your vehicle, the maximum angle you can get through an in-game report is 45, if you wish to get 55 angle, you’ll be required to make a modification request with realistic parts to get you to that stage. All tire changes can be done via an in-game report aswell. (Generics with the names “Universal Tires” or “Drift Tires” are not accepted, the generics used should have actual names including the brand of the tires and the line-up they’re in such as “ Toyo Proxes R888R Summer Tyres” or “Bridgestone Potenza S001 High Performance Tyres”) Brand new brake installation, such as performance brakes can be done through an in-game report aswell. Modification Request All of the modifications that will be listed below, will require you to submit a modification request over on the forums (https://forums.owlgaming.net/forms/5-vehicle-team-modification-request-ooc/). Before I start off listing everything, modification requests require you to have 75 hours on your character, this is something that is listed within the modification request form itself. Handling: I’ll start off with the most simple one as I’ve already mentioned it in the previous section. If you wish to get 55 angle on your vehicle, you will be required to make a modification request and have realistic parts such as camber arms, modified knuckles and modified control arms, etc. Interior: The only aspect of interior modifications that requires you to make a modification request is if you’re trying to strip the whole interior or removing parts of the interior such as the rear seats/ passenger seat. Performance Modifications/ Engine: Anything related to the engine, such as an engine swap itself (Even the removal of engines), turbo kit, supercharger, exhaust/intake manifolds, exhaust system, etc will require a modification request. If you’re trying to modify your vehicle for high power figures, remember to have supporting modifications to make it realistic as possible so that your vehicle would be able to handle it all. (One-run builds, meaning high power vehicles that need to be rebuilt every few races on the drag strip due to not having supporting modifications or parts that aren’t capable of handling that power are not allowed, the reason for this is because it leads to really over-powered builds that are constantly used as this isn’t something we can regulate or enforce) ECU: Anything related to the ECU such as making a new tune on your vehicle, using a preset tune from a device or messing around with the factory ECU to remove a speed limiter also require modification requests to be made. Drivetrain: Modifications involving the drivetrain, such as new flywheels, clutch kits, transmissions themselves, driveshafts , axles, differentials, etc will all require modification requests, stats for these will be set accordingly in order to improve the vehicle. Safety: Modifications intended to protect the driver during motorsports such as half cages/ roll cages and harnesses have to go through a modification request. Vehicle Repairs/Restorations We know that there’s a few people that like to roleplay damages of their vehicles correctly or they purchase damaged vehicles to repair/restore them. This section is for them to show them what repairs can be done in-game and what will require modification requests. Body Panels : Like stated above, any body panels such as fenders, bumpers, crash bars, doors, etc can be done through an in-game report as long as you have the RP for it all and have the correct generics. Interior : Putting the interior back together, such as putting new seats in, dash, steering wheel, interior lining, etc can also be done through an in-game report. Suspension : All suspension components can be done through an in-game report as long as you’ve done the RP for it and have the generics, this goes for both factory suspension set ups and aftermarket ones. Engine/Drivetrain/Supporting Modifications: Whole engines, engine parts/components, transmissions, driveshafts, differentials, fuel tanks, fuel pumps, etc will require modification requests as they will affect the performance of the vehicle and they will also make the vehicle drivable (meaning the vehicle is no longer disabled) The only part that will not require a modification request is a battery, installation of a new battery can be done through an in-game report. Hope this guide has helped out a few people and has gotten rid of the confusion that some players have. If you have any further questions, feel free to comment down below and I’ll try my best to get back to you regarding it.

    The News That Matters, Today CIRCULATION: 145,000~ MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd, 2019 DAILY 35¢ The Grand Reopening of the Mojito Inn Written by Ray Costa Owner Stephen Irvine (far left) with fellow patrons at the Mojito Inn. PALETO BAY - The grand reopening of the Mojito Inn was celebrated enthusiastically this past Saturday with over fifty patrons in attendance since the taverns' closure two years ago today. The popular and often frequented tavern was forced to close their doors when a tragic grease fire erupted in the kitchen and caused significant damage, requiring extensive renovations in the kitchen from fire damage and throughout the entire building due to extensive smoke damage. Drywall was replaced along with most of the walls and plumbing was redone. Prior to the opening of the Mojito Inn fifteen years ago, patrons were forced to take a twenty-minute drive South along the Great Ocean Highway to Hookie's, another local tavern in the area. Understandably, people were less inclined to drive such a distance with the intention of consuming alcoholic beverages as it became troublesome to return to Paleto Bay without the aid of public transportation or taxi services. It was for this reason that Stephen Irvine, owner of the Mojito Inn, created the establishment fifteen years ago. The close proximity to Paleto Bay allowed for the town's residents to congregate around a central establishment that gave birth to a nightlife that was formerly unknown to the town. However almost ironically, the same issue occurred again during the closure of the Mojito Inn for the two-year renovation hiatus. Thankfully, the two-year delay did not harm the popularity of the grand reopening and was celebrated with a large audience the first day. The staff will shy away from opening another kitchen, due to "fear of having another kitchen fire occurring" according to Stephen Irvine. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will still be served along with finger foods such as chips, peanuts, and other treats. Mr. Irvine also hopes to appeal to a broader audience by having a casino opened inside the bar along with a live band, providing more entertainment then was previously possible.

    In 2003 the notorious Guasave Aztecas XIII, led by Ismael “Shadow” Barajas began to push their way into becoming the most feared organisation in Sinaloa. Known for their ruthlessness, the group was suspected to be the cause of over 300 deaths in the space of a three years, 50 of which were Police Officers. The group focused on extortion, gambling along with drug and Weapon distribution, with many members targeting other gangs in order to secure different turfs that they could operate from. Aguayo “Seven” Damian, Ismael's right hand kept the organisation running by being the face of the group, issuing orders and personally torturing those who dared to try betray the group, his most notable method would leave the person with three large cuts on their cheek that branded them as traitor. In 2010 Ignacio "Nacho" Coronel Villarreal one of the leaders of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel was killed in a military raid in Guadalajara's suburbs, Coronel killed a soldier and wounded another before being shot. The Military gave a statement stating that they found guns, two hand grenades and $7 million in cash at the house where Coronel was killed. Due to the death of Ignacio, Ismael decided to attempt to take over his operations, this move ended with Ismeal receiving a promotion within the Cartel and therefore spending more time away from the gang. In 2014 an injunction was placed on the group after several members were caught during a raid on several houses and warehouses that group were operating from. The group lost a good percentage of members who were facing charges ranging from drug trafficking, Vandalism and even murder, with forensics linking other members to many unsolved cases within Sinaloa. After an emergency meeting by the leaders of the group it was decided that Aguayo would move his set to Los Santos with the hope of rebuilding the reputation they once had but under the name of Seville Boulevard Locotes XIII. Seville Boulevard Locotes XIII also referred to as ‘Eight’ had several morales that the members were to follow: Respect every member of the group, no matter what rank they were everyone counted as family. Disputes were to be settled by fists only. Anyone who raised a firearm to a fellow member without having the go ahead from a high up member would face being kicked from the gang and having a cross cut into each cheek to show they were not to be trusted. CK Clause: You are liable to be CK’d by faction leaders (Or upon the orders of faction leaders) if you do the following: Betray the gang and ‘snitch’ on other members. Are seen to cause actual issues within the gang such as robbing other members, threatening them etc. Members are meant to work together, not against. Bring negative attention to the gang - Such as shooting LSPD, doing deals in the hood, or attacking innocent people without a valid reason. (( Shoutout to @Vubstersmurf for helping me set up the faction thread.))

    GTA:V Showcase Stream OwlGaming staff will be hosting a gameplay stream on Youtube next Saturday, July 6th around 21:00UTC. In this approximately 1 hour stream we will be showcasing many of the features that we created to make our server unique. This stream will also give you the ability to give us feedback on areas you think we should expand on before launching. Many GAT members and users with the beta-tester role on discord will be online so that we can create some dynamic RP scenes. You can find the stream on our Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCov1MwxOPcO_Pi_b5JGT_rQ Additionally, make sure you're in our discord to receive a notification in the #announcements channel when we go live!

    Ban Leniency and Reminder of the Open Door Policy Ban Leniency In accordance with our announcement on stream, we are introducing a leniency on current ban records. This means if you are currently banned for any reason (that isn't a blacklist) you are eligible to received a much lighter sentence of a unban on the spot. If you think an admin is still being overly harsh with your ban please reach out to me. I would love to hear it. To give a couple examples, Bob was banned for powergaming after gaining > 20 points on the ban system. Even though his infractions were minor, they built up to a long term ban. Bob is perfectly eligible to be unbanned, today. Peter was banned for alt-alt with a 20 point infraction. He was since unbanned but received a couple of points for MG resulting in a perm ban. This is a misuse of the system if his ban was to be upheld for longer than necessary. Peter can be unbanned after only a couple days or a week. We will be continuing this policy up to the release of V. Open Door Policy I wanted to take a moment to remind players about Owl's open door policy with members of UA and specifically the Head Admins. If you have any concerns of suggestions to bring up to staff, please reach out to myself or another Head Admin. At the very least we can help direct you to where on the forums such an idea could be posted so the whole community can get involved. I have been hearing concerns of corruption within the GAT ranks. I take these seriously, please reach out to me ASAP if you have proof of such an event. I can ensure you remain anonymous in your report and we can look at resolving it. Just to re-iterate, I'm always available on the OwlGaming Discord with my PMs open. I also will respond to any forum PMs I receive. I know many are adverse to creating a formal ticket for complaints, so this is a way for you to write something short and sweet to see immediate results. Thank you everyone, we're a community together. We have to work together, not against one another to improve the quality of the server. You make a difference in shaping the direction of oG. - OwlGaming Community

    During the 70's, under the Soviet period, many corrupted clerks made connections within the criminal underworld in order to source the black market. But in fact, the elite criminals known mostly as ''Vory v Zakone'', their Code of Conduct strictly forbade them to accomplish cooperation with any kind of the official authorities. Decade later, this led the georgian underworld to divide in two, one half collaborated closely with the authorities meanwhile the other was following the COC(Code of Conduct) strictly. Shortly after, meanwhile Georgia was prospered, it earn a name as one of the most corrupt countries. In the 90's, Georgian government was weak, they had to accept and advantage the nationalist militias formed during the ethnic Abkhaz and Georgia conflict. The militias were pushed into racketeering and smuggling due the lack of funding. With the Rose Revolution which started in 2003, it put Mikheil Saakashvili in power. Saakashvili soon started to implement actions against the high level of crime and corruption. He successfully managed to get many officials behind the bars along with members of the underground authorities in 2005. In order to avoid prosecution, Georgian's ''Vory V Zakone'' emigrated and fled to either Russia or Western Europe, with small gaps in USA. As the arrival of a small ethnic group of georgians in the US, a few personas have established themselves in San Andreas, Los Santos. In a not long gap of time, they managed to create stable business relations around the city, either to invest funds into legal businesses, considered such as legal fronts which advantaged them to avoid the prosecution of their illicit activities for the time being. OOC: With any kind of personal association with the faction, you automatically agree the CK clause and the organization's leadership has the enough power to proceed a CK for every solid reason they have/find good.

    Founding The Aryan Knights Motorcycle Club was formed by a group of close friends in mid march of 2019. Most of these founding members were involved in various White Supremacist criminal elements across the state, with the majority coming from the now defunct street gang, Public Enemy No. 1 The founding members, now going under the title of "The Council" drafted a set of rules to lay the foundation for the club. These rules are know as "The Ten Commandments". Activities The Club takes part in various Criminal and legal business ventures, most of which were carried over from other rackets the members ran before the founding. These include Vehicle Theft, Drug Production, Drug Sales, Robbery, Petty Theft, among many others. Goals While the Club's main motivation is monetary gain, it's members and leadership commonly take violent and decisive actions to further their ideological goals. While they often openly do business with non-white criminal groups, they see this as simply a means to an end. ((OOC Disclaimers)) Any person or group willingly associating with the Club, whether by membership, repeated interactions or prolonged business arrangements can be subject to a CK at the discretion of the Club's leadership. This faction commonly participates in extremely violent, sexual, and racist roleplay situations. If you are easily offended by such things, then this faction might not be for you. All of the information in this thread is strictly OOC. If you are a member, you'll learn certain aspects of this thread as you RP with us.

    End of March 2019 Newsletter Community & Script Updates Game Night Our last GAT Update carries over for this month since it was posted a bit later than usual. Additionally, our Game Night #4 was a huge hit and we hope to continue having them in the future. If the community expresses interest in doing them, we'll be happy to host! Be sure to show interest in a post below to make your voice heard. Easter Event Around Easter, (April 21) we'll be unveiling a new event script, so everyone look forward to that. The event will be in character and have sponsors much like the Santa Truck during Christmas, @Unitts will be making that in character post to solicit sponsors in the near future. Faction Team The Faction Team as of this newsletter being published will be hosting its regular meeting within the week and vote on members who have applied from within the admin team, so even better response times should be expected with the extra manpower. We've been hearing good feedback for quite a while now about the response times, however, those of you who may have had less than desirable experiences in waiting for a response from the team, don't hesitate to shoot myself or another Faction Team member a PM so we can ensure any complaints are dealt with promptly. OwlV The GTAV project has continued to see progress made in moving our client side code to C#. This has helped solve pre-existing bugs we weren't even aware of with the improved type checking. We expect that this move will also improve our performance and developer productivity. We have expanded on some of the commands that were reported to us during our closed beta as being critical and missing. Commands such as setting HP, setting a player in vehicle and more were added. Scripted jobs have been improved to be easier to create and manage. We plan to release another closed beta with more faction leaders very soon. We specifically want to involve more illegal RPers in our next beta. This will be announced soon™ and community members will be contacted if they are invited. Community Spotlight Ariana Grande Event This past weekend the Ariana Grande concert was a huge success. It was fantastic to see so many people online for the event. Although the event had a small hiccup with RDM, everyone was revived and the event continued as the players involved were blacklisted. Semi Truck Drag-racing Event Today @ResidentPeach hosted an event at the LV Drag Strip, thank you to everyone who showed up! We hope to host many more frequent events and if you're interested in leading an event of some kind please reach out! We would be happy to provide assistance. @Vubstersmurf specifically would like to help anyone that is planning to do an event. Character Stories Factions There was an event hosted by Covington Construction, held just today and there have been a variety of illegal and legal factions popping up. Existing factions as well have been keeping their threads updated and posting interesting content so go check the section out. Media To have your media featured in the next newsletter, submit it on the #media channel on Discord! Stats 2,725 reports handled in the month of March! We're happy to say that player reports still remains a relatively small portion of the tickets! (note: this does not include support tickets.)

    Bandidos Forever, Forever Bandidos Bandidos San Andreas Chapter on ride to San Andreas from Texas (Grand Canyon stop) Who are the Bandidos? The Bandidos Motorcycle Club, also known as the Bandido Nation, is a "one-percenter" motorcycle gang and organized crime syndicate with a worldwide membership. The club was formed in 1966 by Don Chambers in Texas. Its slogan is We are the people our parents warned us about. It is estimated to have 2,400 members in 210 chapters, located in 16 countries. The club considers itself to be an Outlaw Motorcycle Club. The Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as the Criminal Intelligence Service Canada have named the Bandidos an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang. ________________ The club was formed on March 4, 1966 in San Leon, Texas by Donald Eugene Chambers. Don Chambers, having served in Vietnam as a Marine, modeled the club's colors after the scarlet and gold motif of the United States Marine Corps. After Chambers' presidency ended due to his conviction for murder in El Paso, Texas, Ronnie Hodge was elevated to president ________________ The Bandidos has over 90 chapters in the United States, 90 chapters in Europe, and another 17 in Australia and Southeast Asia. In the United States, the club is concentrated in Texas, but extends into Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Washington, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and several other states. The Rock Machine Motorcycle club in Canada merged with the Bandidos in 2000; there was a chapter in Toronto, Ontario until a dramatic internal conflict led to their deaths. The Bandidos are also found in Australia; aside from the non-locale-specific Nomads chapter, the chapters are located in Adelaide, Ballarat, Brisbane (Bayside, Centro, City), Byron Bay, Cairns, Geelong, Gold Coast, Hunter Valley, Ipswich, Melbourne, Mid North Coast, Mid State, Mission Beach, Noosa, North Victoria, Northside, Sunshine Coast, Sydney, and Toowoomba, and were acquired with much bloodletting. In recent years the club has also expanded heavily into Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg, France and the Channel Islands. Additionally, it is looking into setting up shop in Russia and Eastern Europe and also in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. The Bandidos are organized by local chapters, with state and regional officers, as well as a national chapter made up of four regional vice presidents and a national president. Like the Hells Angels, The Bandidos also have a number of puppet, or so-called "support," clubs, who are used as proxies for both legal and illegal activities. These groups usually wear reverse colors (gold border with red background rather than the Bandidos' red-border–and–gold background). They also commonly wear a unique patch (known as the "Heart Patch") consisting of a round patch in Bandidos colors on the front upper left of the colors (vest), as worn by the member. Most of these clubs are regional. Bandidos San Andreas Chapter After intense debate within the Bandidos San Antonio Chapter, it was decided to finally expand the club out into San Andreas. The local Sergeant at Arms, Russell Barlow, of the San Antonio Chapter was nominated to move out to the area and attempt to start the new chapter along with several members from the current San Antonio Chapter. As such and with 10,000$ to start it he arrived with the members who were selected to come along and do this favor for the chapter. They decided to setup in Montgomery while Russell got a house in Palomino to front. The group current are working odd jobs in order to start up a bar for the club to be involved in and run. Due to this the club is looking hard for local members and local people to recruit into the club in an attempt to get things rolling in the area and have a steady cash flow back to the San Antonio Chapter in order to pay for the loan that was given out to start this new Chapter. _________________ The local chapter is currently very open about its self and very proud of its distinctions. As such, members have no problem showing off their affiliation and love to the Bandidos MC. The club also has legal activities, participating in charity runs and regularly donating to local foundations and groups to bolster their public image. _________________ Recently the club has bought a bar on the outskirts of town which to base their rides and hangout spot out of. It's a public bar for anyone to come and attend and have a few drinks and a good time, so long as they respect our rules, our life style, and how we do business. Beyond that, no disrespect will be taken in the place and anyone who does is sure to get a good beating by the guys inside. As long as you follow the rules of the bar, they're friendly people who are easily approachable. _________________ The bar had been going well and business was booming. The club finally settled itself in Dillimore and became friends with quite a few other heads of illegal criminal groups in the city. The Charity run was coming up, until sadly on the night of 5/18/2019 at around 1 AM the club decided to go and practice the route for the charity run which was to be held later in the day. Russell, the President, decided to bring along a new friend and cute doctor who he wished to impress that evening named Mia. They had met up with two other members down at the Traffic Bureau in order to practice the run. Russell had given his helmet over to Mia to wear, as he wanted to make sure she was protected. Running the route caused Russell to want to give Mia the time of her life and show her the beauties of the world and riding on the open road. Sadly though, as they entered the town of Palomino speeding through an intersection, Russell, Mia, and Jett, were T-Boned by an unknown drive who then ran from the scene. All members hit were badly injured and rushed to the hospital. Russell had the worst injuries, wearing no helmet and hitting a concrete wall, knocking him unconsious and causing him to lose many motor functions vital to him as a biker. He remains in the hospital resting and having procedures done to get better. Due to this, the charity run for the day had to be cancelled and pushed back to next Saturday, 5/25/2019. The club had 20k donated to it, which all was now going into paying for Russell's medical bills for when he got out. The club now with 1/5th of its members injured, and their figure head in the hospital, would be bad news. Recruitment is done in game, or by PMing @Sc0ttie Upon joining the faction you agree that your character may be CKed at any time by any faction officer Credit for logo goes to its respectful owner

    Introduction On the 3rd of July 2009, Riley Baxter who’d resided in the outskirts of Manchester, UK, at the time, found herself behind the wheel of an old 96’ Ford Escort 1.6 Zetec. The car was barely together anymore, as it’d sat for years outside rotting away, until the owners decided to upgrade to something newer. Dents along the quarterpanels, rust along the skirts, it’d met the end of it’s 170 thousand mile life. From there it fell into the hands of Riley’s friend, at the time, who’d bought it for £350 to have fun with before it was sent to a scrapyard. It wasn’t at all the prettiest vehicle she’d ever sat in, but it was the first she’d been the driver of, and as reluctant as she was to drive the deathtrap, something about the freedom of driving appealed to her. Taking it for a few laps around a desolate farm, she found herself pushing the vehicle further until Riley found herself laughing, ripping the handbrake around the dirt roads of the farm and barely keeping the car in a straight line. Since that one day, she’d found herself in love with motorsports. Competing in various drift events and becoming the winner of the 2017 Sportsland Tobuku Summer drift elimination tournament, she’d came back to her roots of needing the feeling of pure controlled chaos once more, and found herself wanting to share that feeling with other people. That is where, with the help of Julie Lawrence, on the 11th of March 2019, she found herself forming the organisation Lunar Rallysport, a group of people who have a sincere passion for anything to do with motorsports in gravel, dirt and tarmac appliances. What is Lunar Rallysport? Lunar Rallysport is an organisation aimed at the hosting of any dirt-level motorsport events including motocross, stage rallying, and rallycross. We aim to provide a sport that anyone with a particular skill-level and an adequate car may compete in, and have a great time pushing themselves in a safe and legal manner. We offer the leadership and hosting of events in compliance with safety and legal systems. Our leadership team are all of a motorsport hosting background, and as Lunar Rallysport's goals are first-of-a-kind for Los Santos, we are adamant that this needs to be done the right way, to mark a secure foothold in the history of the Los Santos motorsport scene. How does a typical event work? Motocross, Stage rally and Rallycross are the three types of events we offer. Stage rally is a timed event that may involve any type of ground material, and leaderboard positions are determined by the fastest time around the sprint. Rallycross is a circuit event that is often just involving dirt and asphalt mixed. In every rallycross race, every driver is required to take a joker lap once. This can be a shortcut, or a longer route around the track. There are usually three laps in these kinds of events, and contact with vehicles is allowed, although it should be noted that any attempt to blatantly try and take a driver out of the competition or cause physical harm while racing may result in disqualification. Our Motocross events will be three lap, fully dirt-tracked events with no contact whatsoever. All drivers must be in ownership of the correct physical gear laid out at each event announcement before the start of the event, and pass a physically and mechanical inspection. Would my vehicle be suitable for this? We currently only accept all wheel drive, half or full-cage vehicles with FIA approved seats and harnesses. You may only ride with one passenger, who may act as a co-driver if you request, and they must be seated in an FIA approved seat with the correct harness. This is a dangerous sport, and we need to keep this as safe as possible, on top of that, these are the specific requirements for the types of rally events; Stage Rally - Vehicle must have a designated numberbadge Vehicle must have a mounted fire extinguisher Vehicle must output a maximum of 400 wheel horsepower and no more than 220km/h. Vehicle must have appropriate offroading tires ((No more than 0.7 grip)) Vehicle must have no more than 40 angle. Rallycross - Vehicle must have a mounted fire extinguisher. Vehicle must have a designated numberbadge. Vehicle must output a maximum of 500 wheel horsepower and no more than 200km/h Vehicle must have appropriate tires ((No more than 0.8 grip)) Vehicle must have no more than 35 angle. Motocross - Vehicle must be no more than 450cc and no faster than 160km/h Vehicle must have a designated numberbadge. Vehicle must have appropriate tires ((No more than 0.7 grip)) Am I eligible for this? Of course! We’d love to have as many people as wanting to compete on board. Although to keep yourself, our staff and the spectators safe, we do necessitate some guidelines to who is allowed to drive. You must; Have a valid LS Drivers license Be older than 18 at the time of competition Be physically and mentally fit for competition Be wearing an appropriate helmet Must not be under the influence of any medication / drug or alcohol Be able to comply with event staff Must have a radio tuned to the correct frequency Have full fire-resistant racing suit, boots and gloves. Events when? We still have a lot set out to do. But we’ve already planned a course and are hoping with hard work and dedication to have an event coming very soon to you. Keep informed via our website ((Forums)) for anything new coming from us! Our Intentions. We have no interest in gaining revenue so long as we can afford to keep doing what we are doing. We are just a team of people passionate about this genre of motorsport who have high ambitions to take the fun of rallysport into Los Santos' domain for the very first time. We are here to have fun and as much of a competition as this is, if you're not having fun while barely keeping control of your vehicle, sliding down dirt roads with an engine screaming at full RPM, you're doing something wrong. We have great interest with opening channels of communication from government, civilian and local business, to help upkeep our standards of leading the scene in a correct, professional manor. Thankyou very much for your time and we hope to be serving you very shortly! For any queries, contact Lunar Rallysport employees below. Terms and Conditions For volunteers - I understand that the work I carry out in Lunar Rallysport is entirely voluntary and will do everything within my power to keep myself, my colleagues and site visitors safe. I understand I have to carry myself in a professional manor when representing the Lunar Rallysport brand and any attempt at defamation, injury, illicit activity when representing, or alike, may result in termination of my contract and/or legal action taken.

    Faction Team Update Howdy all, The Faction Team has been hard at work to drastically improve the contact response times. Our number of pending contacts are less than half a dozen at any given time now, due to our changes in streamlining our internal processes and getting more of our policies and guidelines written down so team members are not relying on institutional knowledge to handle certain contact types based on past experience. Instead, a single member can handle a contact easily by themselves most of the time. Additionally, we've started to add some new VM processes and continue to have our monthly meetings. The February one just wrapped up and here are the results. Faction Changes We're in the middle of re-organizing our faction database right now so this is not all of the changes with factions, but a majority of them in the past few months. Going forward, faction changes will be far more detailed and we will publish more regular updates when these changes do occur. Sparta Inc Established to Official Western Solutions LLC Established to Official Convington Trucking LLC Became Incorporated RSR Corp Became Incorporated Southside Aztecas (Formerly Almighty Saints) Confirmed to Established El Sindicato Vallarino Confirmed to Established SS Asian Boyz Became Confirmed L'equippagio di Pasadena (The Braggo Crime Family) Became Confirmed LSMA Official to Incorporated Virtual Market Expectations Now at the top of all virtual market forms, we have a list of general criteria that should be followed when submitting the request so there is no lack of communication about what is expected from the player to have a successful virtual market experience. The illegal virtual market for street dealing is shown below as an example. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with this new information. SAN, Article & Entertainment Virtual Market, and Independent Journalists! With SAN becoming a defunct faction, we want to continue to encourage players to write articles in the form of news stories, satire, or general entertainment and music. To do this, we have created a virtual market form for players to fill out to receive payment for future and past creations. We want to promote high quality news and entertainment in the in-character space of the server and incentivize players to create their own news companies and factions. The more independent journalists the better. Legal Virtual Market After much request, we've put together a legal virtual market. It is very broad in scope and aims to promote more legal roleplay. To evaluate these requests, policies and procedures have been put in place which require several faction team members to perform the evaluation to come up with the best outcome for every individual circumstance. The information at the top of the form really provides a great explanation of what we expect from people who submit the form and how it operates. The TL:DR version is we are going to start paying players who open businesses which creates a social environment and promotes roleplay for others throughout the server. Fencing Stolen / Illegal goods We've recently created a new set of policies and procedures internally for the faction team so that we may begin processing the sale or "fencing" of stolen or illegal goods. There will be a form for this in the near future, however, the general idea is that generic items in game have value. There are a lot of them. Home or business burglaries and player robberies are also relatively common and often result in expensive jewelry, electronics, etc. While it's great that a lot of players can steal these items, there is nowhere for them to go once stolen. Players currently can only really tediously sell them to other players when in reality, there would be a much bigger market for second-hand items that "fell off the back of a truck". We want to simulate this market by letting players sell these stolen goods. Right now, this may only be accomplished by official factions. This is to encourage a chain of custody for stolen goods and in reality, an official faction would have the best contacts for offloading stolen goods. This is subject to change and is currently being considered by the team, but the goal is to create more RP by forcing players to interact with each other to sell these illegal goods by making more connections in the criminal underworld. If you are interested in doing this, until the form is out, you can simply inquire with a regular public contact. Wholesale Buyback of Guns & Drugs If players need cash quick, they can trade their guns and drugs for a direct equivilant in value. Players cannot make money by doing this and the whole purpose is to provide a route for guns and drugs to leave the server instead of just destroying them. A simple example to further explain this would be a player is part of an official faction from 6 months ago. They bought 10 guns and when the faction shut down, they still had those 10 guns from their faction team drop. They decide to play on the character again but this time, they want to join a legal faction and leave their criminal past behind. Instead of having to get rid of the guns by destroying them and effectively losing their original investment, they can simply get the same amount of money back that they originally paid for the guns. We suspect this won't be done very often but enough players have mentioned this in the past which led to the creation of a series of policies and procedures so we can accommodate those players. General Faction Team Support With faction interest gone, the ability to wait, save up money, and purchase faction assets like vehicles and properties is gone. To remedy this, in general, we are drastically increasing our faction team support to those who request it. This has been done in the past and we want to be clear that we still continue to allow this. If you would like an interior or vehicle for your faction to create roleplay, let us know and we'll work with you to provide those assets. A note is put on the interior or vehicle and when it is no longer used, it cannot be sold and is then deleted. This way, there is no financial cost but also no financial gain. It is done purely to create more roleplay. Faction Updates Please remember to regularly send faction updates in. At least once a month. Without a recent faction update, we as the faction team cannot support your faction, evaluate your status, etc. That should be all for now...I think I covered all the bases. You can expect forms soon for the fencing VM and wholesale buyback of drugs & guns. Additionally, expect another update soon about drug production, drug variety, and shop updates.
