Though not necessarily noticed by the citizens of Hathian tension has been building to a critical mass within the ranks of the Parish's gangs. Historical and current events, relationships and hatred for one another is about to spill out onto the city's streets.
The Rejects, The Reapers, The Immortals are at each other's throats, the violence is not far off and whether you've noticed it or not soon there will be no missing the war that is due to erupt...
This is the arc I've been working on for a little while now and with IC events that have happened over the last couple of weeks the story has started, already in the build up there have been more plot twists than an M Night Shyamalan movie (though hopefully recvieved with better critical acclaim than most of his movies!).
It's an arc designed mostly to give the gangs a leading role in a sim-wide arc and to encourage inter-gang role play as well as make the gangs a more visible force on sim, hopefully opening up opportunities for those who don't usually get to interact with gangs a chance to do so! Not to mention give Hathian that historical feeling of "you're not safe wondering these streets".
As the story begins to move in to the area of public awareness with a war on the horizon it's time the story arc went up here, so, here's what you need to know:
Where and when: Bourbon Street for a start, the center of gang activity will become the first battle ground as for when... hard to say, it's at boiling point so you can expect to see violence between gangs within the next week or so.
To HPD or to not HPD: I've asked the HPD (myself included :P) too not take a central a role in this arc as they perhaps usually would, though Captain Robertson and Lieutenant Morrisey have been kidnapped this was little more than plot device, the gangs and people of Hathian can expect the HPD to not want to get in-between the warring factions and although will protect the public they will only respond and contain the violence to the Bourbon street area of the Parish, which will lead to...
The spread: Though the war will start on Bourbon Street it is expected to eventually bleed through the HPD lines and spread through the rest of the city, at which point we hope other people will get involved!
Getting involved!: Though aimed at giving the gangs a big storyline to go at this arc is by no means exclusive and I hope it will be opened up to other gangs not directly involved thus far and also business, groups and individuals who might not traditionally have no affiliation or interaction with gangs, I've already had interest shown from some groups and I'm working to weave them into the plot. I hope when the war spreads out people will naturally be drawn into it or caught in the crossfire. If you feel like you have something to add to this plot or would like some help getting involved please feel free to contact either one of the gang leads or myself in world!
There are plans that the HPD will eventually crack down on the violence but we're hoping to hold that back until the natural course of events has fully played out.
