  1. S/O to the Street Dragons, promotion well deserved. Keep up the work everyone.
  2. 2202 Vietnamese Boyz is a predominantly Vietnamese-American street gang that was founded between the 1980s-1990s in Southern San Andreas, Los Santos. A notable community formed by it's Asian immigrant residents opened up new opportunities for Southeast Asians coming into the United States known as Little Seoul. This mass influx consequently led to the formation of some of Los Santos' most violent street gangs in history, including the 2202 Vietnamese Boyz or VBZ. Members of VBZ tote the 2202 label, V being the 22nd letter of the alphabet, B being the 2nd. While some might be from one particular neighbourhood, Vietnamese street gangs are typically non-territorial. Instead of claiming one area for themselves, they often roam the streets looking to expand their opportunities at every turn possible. This also results in their graffiti and tags being strewn across Los Santos in various parts of the city. VBZ is separated through various sets and cliques, one of them being the least defunct known as the Infant V Boyz. Members can range from as young as 14 years old, and are considered to be the youngest generation of the Vietnamese Boyz. As they don't fly any affiliations with Bloods or Crips, they usually adorn themselves with grey or black rags and clothing to demonstrate their affiliation as an independent gang. They are known to beef with many gangs in the areas they roll through, taking on the role of being EBK. The exceptions would be Asian Boyz and most Southeast Asian gangs in West Los Santos. They are however long-time rivals of Wah Ching and other Blood oriented groups and organizations. While the ethnic make-up of the gang is predominantly Vietnamese, others from different Southeast Asian backgrounds are sometimes welcomed into their arms. For the most part however this is a rare occurrence. OOC Information This faction is heavily based on the real-life Vietnamese Boyz gang in Southern California. We are looking to portray an accurate and developed representation of a Vietnamese street gang primarily consisting of youth characters. If you're looking to be a part of the faction, it is recommended that you don't portray a FOB (Fresh off the boat) character and center your development around already being from the area. Your character should range from the ages of 14-18. If you're looking for support or entrance into the faction and want to get started, consider joining the faction discord: https://discord.gg/XkDvu7Mx59 Any other inquiries, questions or concerns can be directed to @whippit via forum PMs.

  5. A Guide to Sureño Roleplay Feel free to make any comments about anything in this guide, criticism or any additions are welcomed! Table of Contents Introduction Why do people join street gangs? Roleplaying a resident within a Spanish ghetto Roleplaying a gang member/gang banger Roleplaying a female in a street gang Common Terminology Conclusion Preamble Hey! So this guide mainly focuses on the portrayal and development of Hispanic characters living within the urban projects, but much of it can be attributed to the development of Afro-American as well as Asian-American gangs alike, due to the nature of these gangs sharing some similarities in terms of the way they operate. The guide will cover terminology, signs, culture and tradition, as well as hierarchy. This guide will also include a basic guide as to why people affiliate themselves with gangs, and what factors contribute to the membership of these gangs. From my own experience, roleplaying a Sureño gang member is definitely a difficult task. Thankfully, based on research papers, published studies and mingling with different factions before Owl V, I hope this gives some insight into the inner-workings of Hispanic gangs and how they work. Sureño is the literal meaning of "Southerner" from the countries below the United States, so this guide covers more than just Mexican-Americans. Why do people join street gangs? This is the must-read part of this guide, no TL;DR on this part. This is the primary and most pivotal section of this guide, and should not be skipped unless you aren't trying to roleplay a gang-affiliated character. Why do people, especially kids, find themselves joining street gangs in their neighbourhoods? Well, first off, I can't stress enough that the membership of such street gangs is typically made up of young kids, some who perhaps haven't even graduated middle school. This means your character should probably be a young teenager around the ages of 16 to 18 (16 is the lowest you can be server-wise), although there have been members who are as young as 14. Usually there aren't any exceptions, but unless you wanted to be an older character, you should plan those types of characters out accordingly. There are many factors that can be considered, but I'll narrow it down to a few very common and driving factors that can push young people towards joining a local set, based on "A Social Network Analysis of the San Diego/Tijuana Border Region": A sense of respect among others. A sense of being feared by others. A sense of being a part of a larger power. A sense of belonging and identity. A broken family through drug/substance abuse, separation, physical abuse. A need for an income. Mental Illnesses (kleptomania, social anxiety, PTSD, psychopathy, sociopathy, etc.). Characters, especially young ones, that carry these traits and personalities are more than likely to become affiliated with a local street gang due to the severity of these issues that are unfortunately a reality for many in the ghettos. Characters that are better off or who are introverts alone are less likely to join due to their nature of not wanting social interaction or wanting to stay out of trouble. Also, don't forget that with these traits, it's possible that your character could have developmental obstacles that could prevent your character from ever leaving the cycle of poverty that the slums is rife with. You may have lost someone close, you may have addictions that aren't being fulfilled, you may suffer from abuse at home whether it's physical or emotional. Your family members may also be affiliates of a street gang. Remember, the majority of these people are not educated and are usually pretty violent when it comes to which gangs you choose to affiliate yourself with. You'd likely know what types of drugs and weapons exist because after all, you live in a place where there are gunshots throughout the night, and where narcotics are being sold from. On the topic of families that may be involved in street gangs, this is actually another way that females can get involved besides the obvious 'jump-in'! Females that may be in a relationship or have family involved could find themselves peer-pressured into a local street gang. All of these factors exist as a baseline for you to base your character upon and build him/her from there. Another factor that is a big one is racism between the locals and outsiders which, despite the belief of gangs being created for the purposes of monetary gain, is a primary reason behind to formation of gangs in the first place. Many were formed during the years of mass immigration periods where newcomers into the country found themselves in uncharted territory, causing tension between the natives and the new arrivals. Their purpose was for the protection of the community and their locals, which explains the lack of outsiders that are usually present in such street gangs. Keep in mind, the traits of your characters will also cause tensions. Schools are also something to consider for your character. Being a teen, you'd likely attend a local school along with anyone else from your neighbourhood, affiliated or non affiliated. This aspect would give your character even more knowledge regarding street gang culture and tradition, what problems are being dealt with and who is against who. It's also another way for your character to identify him/herself with a local street gang, possibly even getting to know a member of one of these gangs through school. It should not be difficult to affiliate yourself with a local street gang when your character is a part of the same community that their members would hang around in. With that said, it's probably not a good idea to approach them with "Hey lemme join your gang" or casually talk about their business as if it's a church group you can just walk into. It's better to develop a relationship with one of the members, banger or not, before starting your path to becoming a part of a street gang. Your character would be from the slums with inside knowledge already given that you live there, and it would be understood that their members are probably not going to take your approach lightly. One method of being noticed by such a group would be to tag up walls through the use of tagging crews (or being a lone tagger), which is actually a useful method. A power dynamic that is always present within Sureño gangs is respect and territory, which falls directly under tagging and disrespecting another 'hood'. Of course, if you aren't in a street gang at this point, it's probably best you don't try and claim (unless you are trying to portray your character that way, which is totally fine as that exists) falsely as it could end in severe consequences. Remember, you don't necessarily have to be a killer to be noticed by a local street gang. Certain gangs in places such as New York's Latin Kings would have exceptions that require it, but there is more to gang life than just shooting guns and pushing drugs. Think of a gang as a collection of the neighborhood's most troubled youth, all with a different or similar set of goals that they are trying to achieve by becoming a collective. There are very violent gangs that exist which do include some Sureño street gangs, but for the most part this is not the daily life of a gang member. In the end, it all comes down to the way you build your character based on the traits that you choose. Please please please, don't try to become a hardened gangbanger on the first day of your character. Unless it's the start of a faction where there's a hierarchy that needs to be set up, it wouldn't make sense for your average member it already be a gun-toting drug-slinging killer right off the bat. Roleplaying a resident within a Spanish ghetto Living in the projects in general as a character of any age wouldn't be ideal due to the atmosphere of a ghetto itself. It would likely show by the dilapidated and neglected buildings, the gunshots that ring throughout the night, the drunken folks who hang around on the steps in-front of their homes or in alleyways at night, or even the blatant results of drug and substance abuse as shown from crackheads roaming looking to get their next high. It's an unpleasant and utterly hopeless place, and a sad reality for many minorities who live in such places. All of this is important to note though, as it is the first step towards becoming a moving piece in this sort of environment. Everyone in this type of a place would be exposed to these things, adults and kids both. Your character would very likely understand the events in such a community, or 'word on the street'. This could range from what the types of gangs that operate in your area are, where the least or most dangerous parts of the ghettos are better to walk on at dark, along with gang signs and the lingo that is usually cast upon the residents on a daily basis. You'd know which graffiti is which, you'd be able to differentiate between each tag. This same information wouldn't necessarily be as common to outsiders as it would to the people who've lived there for their entire lives, which will be explained in the next section in more depth. As sourced, gangs are a permanent feature of (poor) urban life in major cities across the world. Most of these gangs thrive on the attention and notoriety, as this is what gives them an edge in the field and allows them to expand and survive. In short, residents living in poor urban housing districts such as Rancho, Chamberlain Hills, or anywhere that isn't high or middle class would have inside street-knowledge automatically just by living there whether it's through your neighbors or witnessing local crimes. Next, you should think about what kind of character you're trying to create before starting off. ONE thing to note is that there are many different types of Hispanic gangs that exist, each with their own level of principles and traditions. As an example, MS-13 and most Central-American street gangs are likely to accept anyone from Latino origin, while Mexican-American or Salvadoran street gangs may look at ethnicity as more of a factor. Also think about what kind of traits and/or flaws your character will have. Will they have problems with drug or substance abuse? Are they in school and if so, what is their school life like? Do they get along with others? Maybe they came to the country illegitimately? These are things you should consider when you start creating your character. Roleplaying a gang member / gang banger This is not my own source but someone from another guide somewhere else made this argument, but they made an excellent point so I'm going to paraphrase: There is a difference between a gang member and a gang banger. A gang member is someone who is involved in a street gang but is only partially involved and doesn't hold many responsibilities in terms of 'putting in work' compared to a full-fledged member. A gang banger is someone who is more involved, holds the responsibilities in putting in the work actively to support his fellow members and whoever he/she answers to. A couple of examples for you, a gang member could be someone who has affiliated themselves with a street gang but isn't doing much other than tagging up walls and selling your usual pack of drugs to the locals. Typically when your character becomes of an older age such as 18, they will take on more responsibilities following them being 'put on' (initiated into the gang). One note to make is that just because you may be a gang member does not mean that you can't do the same things as a gang banger, it's more based on your choice. You still have obligations to the other members of the same street gang. Upon becoming a member, your character would have accomplished their step into feeling more at home, a sense of belonging and identity. You have found yourself amongst like-minded people from the same community and this would give you some happiness, as you don't feel completely alone. You would also feel a sense of power being from a local street gang, the locals may respect you and they may even fear you, all depending on the type of character you create based on your traits. At this stage, your character would likely understand the rules of your gang, any traditions, and your initiation would probably be complete. Speaking of initiation, here are a few ways Hispanic street gangs typically induct their members: Beat-in or Jump-in This is a common method of becoming a part of a street gang. Typically, members of the street gang will press on your character, asking you where you're from and all that good stuff. They may even rough you up, beating you down to see whether you could take a beating or whether you're down for the gang. All of this is typically under the supervision of one of the higher ups, or 'big homies', to see to it that the members doing this are going through with it. Sex-in Note: This isn't a necessarily common method of being initiated and IS NOT the only way for a female to join as they can also get jumped in (depends on the gang), but it does exist. Please make sure if this happens that you get OOC permission BEFOREHAND if that's the type of gang tradition you're willing to portray. A usual way for females to get inducted into a local street gang, where an initiated member (or members in some cases) would get down with the female (usually aggressively), even 'running a train' in cases. After the deed is done, the female would be seen as a new member of the street gang and welcomed in. Now that you're initiated, you probably have questions as to what your responsibilities are as a newly inducted member. There are a number of activities you can conduct yourself in to show that you're down for the gang, including selling drugs from one of the gang's local trap houses or even pimping out girls that live in the same neighborhood or abroad. Typically young teenagers aren't involving themselves into the pimp game, but it has been done before and again depends on your character's traits or personality. You could extort local vendors and store owners, commit petty burglaries and thefts, break into vehicles or do a variety of criminal activities to further fund your gang's proceeds to make your gang more powerful. You may even find yourself working directly under one of the sub-cliques older members or even under one of the higher-ranking leaders, doing jobs for them here and there such as drops or go along with them to functions or deals to talk it out with a rival gang, perhaps even go along with one of the more seasoned members in pulling up in enemy territory. Again, many opportunities available to grow your character in the face of your gang. Along with being initiated, you have further responsibilities that involve faction reputation. You are now the face of your gang's representation and that includes all members regardless of rank or status. Not only are you the representative of the faction in-game, but you also represent them OOCly. This is important to note as you don't want to be the one to taint your faction's reputation in-game (unless you have a trait such as psychopathy that causes it) and out-of-character. It's important to maintain your portrayal as you planned and not to stray from what you intended at the very beginning of your character creation. A common trait within Sureño street gangs is the pursuit of respect, and it is a VERY important dynamic towards understanding the hierarchy, traditions, and operations of a Hispanic street gang. As a member, you should NOT take shit from anyone else as you have been taken on by the neighborhood's feared individuals. Locals should fear you, and if they don't, you should probably make it known. Whether you want your character to initiate it or not, your fellow members will see you for who you are, including outsiders. As you spend more time within the gang, your character will eventually develop other problems with social interactions all of which is a part of the feeling of power that comes with joining one. An example could be if your character becomes more familiar with gang tradition and feels more concerned about being respected, it wouldn't be hard for your character to sense a threat when someone doesn't give you that respect that you feel you deserve. This is a common reason behind infighting that usually happens between members within the same gang, some even being killed over simple beef due to the gang's violent nature. Don't let this shy you away from Sureño roleplay however, as it's a totally normal aspect of being a part of this type of roleplay. Placas This is a topic I wanted to cover very quickly, it's simple and easy to understand. A 'placa' (nickname) is given usually to members whom the 'big homies' or leadership have taken special interest in, and usually reflects the actions that member is known to make. An example of a common placa that could be used is 'Joker', referring to that members joyful outlook on a bad situation such as misery or if they laughed when witnessing another person's suffering, viewing it as if it were a joke. Hence Joker is born. With all of this in mind, and as aforementioned, remember that even if your character kills or has killed in the past, suffered physical/mental abuse from others, that your character still has feelings of their own and isn't some drone doing jobs here and there. Try and develop your character based on your actions (e.g. watching someone be killed may potentially PTSD due to the age of your character), as this is key to being a functioning human being. Roleplaying a female in a street gang This is a topic that isn't covered as much as it should, because females in Sureño gangs play a very useful and interesting role. Based on other guides, we can infer that females are not just the sexual playthings for male members of the same gang. They are seen as important burden bearers by the higher-ranking members, typically taking the blame at the expense of their own well-being, and are the 'morale-boosters' for the others. They, as every other member, can get involved in the same types of criminal activities such as drug-peddling and street gambling. Females usually join street gangs for the same exact reasons as their male counterparts, this covers money, power, and a sense of belonging and identity. She wants to feel respected or feared by others, or simply be a part of something bigger than themselves. they may suffer from the exact same abuse physically and emotionally, they may be addicted to drugs and alcohol, and they might even have some illnesses of their own that cause them to seek the attention of a local street gang. Keep in mind your character's traits and personality as this is still an influence in your character's actions. As mentioned in the 'Why do people join street gangs?' section, females could find themselves joining a street gang because of a significant other or family member, and is actually often the reason why they do end up affiliating themselves within a set. A boyfriend/girlfriend may peer pressure the other to join them in the pursuit of money and power or simply because they want to expose each other to that way of life, perhaps even to show them off to their fellow gang members. Sources list that almost half of females find themselves in street gangs because of being peer-pressured by a significant other rather than a 'sex-in', while it does exist. A female character mind you, is likely to be seen as an easier target to pick off by rival members, they could face the threat of being raped or violently beaten by another gang's female members or even male members, due to the nature of how prejudiced a gang's members are. This is to be kept in mind as you run a risk roleplaying as a female gang member. In conclusion, female and male members do not have many differences in terms of membership into a street gang and their motives for doing so, they both look for the same things and have their own ways of achieving their goals. This can be applied to more than just Hispanic gangs and can be broadened to African-American and even Asian-American gangs. Some gangs may prevent females from being able to assume a leadership role as per their traditions, but this is all according to which gang is enforcing a rule like this. I'm not for restricting roleplay and would deter from doing so, but if you're looking for an accurate portrayal of street gang culture and tradition it certainty isn't wrong in that case. Common Terminology This is a sub-guide to the terminology that can be applied for any street gang, not just Hispanic gangs. This section contains as much slang as I could possibly find that could be used to further develop your character into the lingo and language of the ghettos. NOTE: This is a combination of my own research along with info that has been gathered from other guides/case reports/studies that cover the topic, none of this information is mine and sources will be provided at the end of this guide. DISSING TERMS Napp - Disrespectful term towards Neighborhood Crips Tramp - Disrespectful term to 'Tray' Crip and Hispanic gangs with 'Thirty' in their name (For example, 38th Street Gang would be called Tramp ocho, 36th Street would be called Tramp Six) Scrap - Disrespectful term towards Surenos. (Not to be used by Surenos, ever. Even if it's in the context of a fight. ("Lets scrap, ese"). The only exception to this is if your Sureno char is nicknamed Scrappy. Crab - Obviously a disrespectful term towards Crips Slob - Disrespectful term towards Bloods Snoochies / Snoovas- Diss term for Hoover Criminals Hoochies - Diss term for Hustler Crip gangs Faketeen - Diss term for 18th Street Gangs. Okay - Commonly used by Hoover Criminals gang members. It stands for what it sounds like. 'oK', Rollin O killa. So it's basically a disrespectful term towards all Neighborhood Crip gangs. Mierda Seca / Monkey Shit - Diss term for Mara Salvatrucha Dieru - Disrespectful term towards Piru gangs Bike Rims - Diss term for Brim gangs Maggots - Disrespectful term for Mafia Crips Flowers - Diss term for Florencia 13, equivalent to 'faggot' Water Buckets, Waste Buckets - Disrespectful term for West Side Crips, West Boulevard SLANG Damu - A word used to refer to a member of the Bloods gang B-Dog - A blood, used similarly to the word damu. Verz - Used by Hoover Criminal gangs, usually combined with the word 'Okay' (Okay Verz). Loc (Pronounced as LOWK not LOCK) - A term of endearment for Surenos/Crips that originates from the word 'Loco', this is also used by Crips to refer to eachother similarly to the word damu/b-dog. ("You my loc, nigga.") ('Shoulda been a loc') or (Wassup, loc?) Rip Rider - A term used to refer to a Crip Blood - Pretty obvious. Used by Blood members to refer to their homies. (Wassup, blood?!) Cuzz - Also pretty obvious, used by crips in the same way that Bloods use 'Blood' Maje - A word commonly used by Salvadorans, particularly amongst Ms-13 members. Cerote - Another Salvadoran slang word. It's like saying 'nigga' when used amongst Salvadorans, though if someone who isn't Salvadoran or Central American uses it, it's like adding the 'er' at the end. Ese - Obviously a word used by Surenos. Dog / Perro - Used among Hispanic gang members, usually. Cap / Capping - Lying (This is mainly black slang, but Hispanics can use it too, depending on their generation) Homeboy / Homie - This is obvious. Can be used by any gang member. Ranker / Ranked it / Ranking out - Usually used by Hispanic gang members. Used to describe somebody who isn't as down for their gang as they claim they are. (Such as refusing to fight for the homies, running from gang beef or simply being a pussy. ('Damn foo, you ranked it on us.' or 'Don't be a ranker, ese') Tweak / Scante / Ice - Slang term for meth White - Pretty obvious, Cocaine. Green / Yeska / Loud / Mary-Jane - Marijuana, obviously. Carga / Tar / Brown / Chiva - Heroin Pookie - A meth or crack pipe Tweaker - A crack, pill or meth addict. Basically any form of junkie. Twacked out - Extremely high on meth/crack. (Usually meth) Fade - Not really gang slang, it's more of a word used amongst people in the ghetto to describe a fight. ('Run my fade.' is basically like saying 'fight me') I feel like this one's pretty obvious, though. Bando - An abandoned house that's commonly used as a hangout spot for gangs. (This is NOT a trap house!). Hangout spots such as these are sometimes referred to as 'destroyers', particularly by MS-13 gang members. Trap house - A house, abandoned, rented or privately owned that is used to sell drugs Casita - Spanish for "Small house" A gang controlled establishment (Usually set up in a home) similar to a trap house that sells alcohol to minors, hosts illegal gambling, hosts prostitution aswell as drug dealing. (These are very popular amongst Hispanic gangs such as MS-13 and 18th Street.) Chavala - Not really used that much nowadays, but it's usually a word used by Hispanic gangs to refer to a rival gang member. Nowadays though people usually just refer to their rivals as 'the enemy' or the 'other side'. Hyna / Ruca - Hyna typically refers to an attractive female, Ruca refers to a girlfriend. These words aren't used as much nowadays, but are still relevant and used occasionally. No good - This term is typically used to describe a person of very low social standing. Such as a rapist, child molester or a hard drug addict. ('Man, I saw that foo tryna rape that lil girl from around the way. That motherfucker's a damn no good' or 'She's a tweaker, straight fuckin no good') Chomo - A child molester Leva - Not particularly used as much nowadays, but it's used to refer to any type of punk, traitor or pussy. ('That fool's a leva, man. He said he didn't bang when the enemies pulled up and pressed him') Burnt / Burnt out - Refers to somebody who is either tripping bad or extremely messed up on drugs. ('Man that bitch stays burnt out' is basically like saying 'She's always on drugs.') Somebody being labelled as 'burnt out' usually ends in them being labelled as a no-good if that person doesn't straighten themselves out. Watered down - Somebody who has seemingly forgotten what it means to be apart of a certain gang. This could be someone who suddenly stopped showing their face at the hood, focuses on things that hold no significance to the gang, or simply by being disloyal. Press / G-check - To verbally harass somebody and enquire as to whether or not they're part of a street gang. ('See that foo over there wit the Pirates cap on? Go press that foo, ese. I think he's from Peanutbutters.' (Translation: "Go check if the guy in the Pirates cap is in a gang, I think he's from PBS13") Green Light - A kill order G Ride - A stolen vehicle Hit up / Placaso - A tag, usually gang related. Bombing - To do graffiti, this is usually used by taggers. ('Yall gonna go bombing tonight, homie?') Whacked out / Whack out - To cross out a rival gang's initials on the wall. ('Man, the slobs tagged our shit. Whack those lames out, ese') Caiga - Means 'come' in Spanish slang. Caile - See 'Caiga' Clique - A subsidary of a street gang, can also be used to refer to one's territory. ('You tryna get down wit the TGS clique, dog?' or 'I'm in the clique right now, where you at?' ) Set - A tagger crew or one's territory. Some people make the mistake of thinking 'set' means a gang, when it doesn't. Barrio / Pandilla / Hood - A street gang Put on / Jumped in / Rushed in - To be initiated into a street gang. This is typically the term used nowadays, the whole 'ragged' thing doesn't exist at all. You don't even get a bandanna when you're jumped into a street gang, why would it be called being ragged? Blessed in - To be allowed into a street gang without having to go through the initiation or having to perform sexual favors Sexed in / Fucked in - To be initiated into a street gang through sexual favors DO NOT SAY There is a common misconception about certain slang that people still use, and that's the use of words such as "Holmes, Cabron, Orale, Vato", etc. This is slang that has been used in the 90's by Sureños back in the days of old. It's not recommended you use these terminologies as it's modern times, and those words aren't a part of popular culture as much anymore. Much of the gangs today from countries such as down south are much more Americanized following the settling of minorities in the United States, and doesn't apply in today's terms. Conclusion So in conclusion, stating the obvious here, but try not to be a static character that has no feeling or consideration for human lives and others. Try to breathe and live like a piece of the puzzle that is the ghetto, and become a moving gear in the activities you conduct with others in. Make roleplay where there isn't, even if it's just passive. A large part of your passive roleplay will probably come from the portrayal of your abuse at home or drug addiction and substance abuse, which will be used to build your character and eventually be able to show off to your fellow gang members and even outsiders. You should continue to consider your traits and personality as a driving factor, and I promise you will have a better sense of what you're trying to be in the server. As a few notes that I will leave at this bottom, here are a few things/reminders that you can take a look at if you're struggling with ideas of how to keep your character busy and develop: Going to school (passively of course) Street gambling Petty theft in the neighborhood Functions (parties or social gatherings in the neighborhood) Talking (Believe it or not, you might go somewhere by just talking to someone) Be who your character wants to be, and you will achieve it surely. It might be slow, but you will eventually accomplish what you set out to do. Hopefully this guide has given you some insight into the inner workings of a Sureño street gang, and given you some knowledge on general roleplay in the ghetto. The most important thing above all is to have fun while doing it!

  6. The only disadvantage would be if it's scripted so that if you are downed from anything e.g. falling off of a building or getting shot, and you could just /getup from those. But there's definitely a workaround so +1 from me.
  7. shit bro i mean like cool and all but like i didnt fucking ask


  8. Since immigration, the races of America fought one another on the basis of skin colour and culture. Many have lost their lives over ragging, going to a different school, or hanging around another crowd. Whether you were of the same blood or just friends, it could be anyone to put a knife in your back. The most important thing on these people’s minds is how to make it out and survive. These are the troubles of Rancho and it’s residents, both young and old. South Side Rancho 13 (also South Side Trece or Rancho X3) is a predominantly Hispanic-American street gang which formed itself in the area of South Los Santos, in the housing blocks of the Rancho neighborhood. Many of its members are young, either in their last years of education or have already graduated/dropped out. The gang is known to have been active for the last few years despite intervention from Los Santos law enforcement. The culture of Rancho has shifted over the years, having to be “jumped in” as initiation into the local gangs, or attend local barbecues from your neighbor are must-do’s. Authorities state that outside influencers who may have an interest in the local mostly-Spanish neighborhoods could lead to further problems in the area. Rancho suffers from territorial disputes and infighting that often shadows Hispanic street gangs and civilians who live near it. These disputes are a daily struggle that young people find themselves in constantly. School attendance has lead to disputes that are racially charged, e.g. with Sureños stepping to Asian gangs. Tagging certain locations could also lead to infighting among the locals. These conflicts lead to further tension on the streets which break the peace and lead to police intervention, which historically has never ended with good results. Some of these problems can be accredited to the lack of proper gentrification. Members of South Side Rancho 13 have been known to tattoo their bodies to publicly display their affiliation. Notable tattoos such as “Rancho13” and “South Side” are commonly identified. OOC We aim to try and recreate a realistic portrayal of a Spanish hood in Los Santos with immersion and inclusion. Anyone can get involved and we encourage those who want guidance to feel free to ask for support. Members of this faction should aim for a young age. This faction is not for the faint of heart. If you are easily offended or otherwise discomforted this faction may not be for you. You can message @whippit or @Munhausen if you are interested in getting involved.
