Thanks, Peri, for posting this. Thanks everyone for the flowers 🙂
[quote quote=68322]Okay, personally I find the background with the world wide hacker stuff a bit weird, sounds more like a James Bond villain stuff then something fitting for CD. But the rest of the proposal is really nice and sound. I really like different flaws being pointed out and I like a business focus with the harbor as that makes it easier for players to seek contact. Sadly I never had chance to play with the lead but I played with Kimi and Corde and they are really friendly, welcoming and fair players and that is perfect for group RP like a faction. I also like that they played to some criminial and street reputation before proposing a faction. Now what I do not get – in long years back when Rho and lyss were running a faction, it was obvious, business model was extortion, they forced girls into white slavery and pressed money out of them. What is the milking cow concept for the Lions, how do they make money as gang? Suggestion, adding the port it would make sense to have a foot in the main SIM with easier traffic, would the Labor Union not fit to that? CD needs another faction so the Kogas do not burn out 🙂 I wish you best of luck [/quote]
I agree with you on the hacker stuff tbh. It seemed a bit far, and a bit over-powering for CD. But It is a character developement behind it, that was already there, when Cordé and Kali arrived. That’s why, after sitting all together we tuned it down a bit and made it remnant of a broken organisation, which fits the theme of Backwater Hathian a bit better. Within the faction, behind closed doors, there are still many secrets to be discovered for the members, while the Leaders Bowen and Ashlee have weaved some nice mystery behind it, about who the Lions really are and once were. And there also some in- official members that come to visit for some internal Faction RP only, secret agents who pressure the Lions about some old obligation.
It should be noted that there are two sides to our gang. A legit front, that is represented from Ashlee and Dr Julija (00meoow00) who would hardly expose themselves as criminals. Once we are ready to accept more members there is a lot of opportunity for Innocents who dont want to get into the combat. Thats why spying and infiltration remains a thing with us. We take hookers of the street and turn then into high class escorts and pinpoint them onto targets.
Then there is the other part of the Faction that’s currently presented by Cordé and Kaliya, who are more like the classical CD Gangsters, the people that will be quite regular visitors at HPD and HGH. The grunts who represent the Lions power in the streets, while the others try to stay legit . Our main bread on the street is the security business. I am already trying to collaborate with the players behind business owners about possibly taking their shops apart that don’t want to hire the Lions as their security. That’s how we want to be active on the Main Sim. Extortion and Protection.
