Boston, Massachusetts. A town known for its great food, great bars, and baseball fans, has a much darker side to it. There is a way this town is run, and it isn't by local merchants or even the government. No, this town runs on an entirely different system. That system is known around here as the Murphy Family. Since the late 1950's, this town has been run by the Irish family.
This town has lived in comfortable fear of the Murphy family for years. Pay your debts on time, don't cause trouble in the wrong parts of town, and you'll be left alone. If you stick your nose where it doesn't belong, you pay the consequences. Members of the police force had learned to look the other way when it came to the crimes of the Murphy family. They participated in the age old 'I'll scratch your back, you scratch mine' mentality. The town lived like that for years, and nobody cared to do anything about it. That was of course, until ten years ago. The Luciano family from Western Massachusetts, an Italian family equally ruthless and looking to take over the gold mine of business that the Murphy family had cultivated over the last few decades. They moved in with force, but what they didn't count on was the allegiances that had formed in the reign of the Murphys.
Blood was shed on both sides, and the Luciano family made it undeniably clear they weren't going anywhere. Loyalties began to waver, people began to pick sides, lives were lost, and hatred rose to a boiling point. This is when the State Troopers decided to step in. They had long since monitored the dealings going on in Boston, but nothing ever rose high enough to take action until the Luciano family stepped in. Now the Troopers are determined to bring down not only the Irish, but the Italian mob families that seem intent on ripping the family apart. They could trust very few in the police department, for most had been involved with the Murphy family from the beginning. They began to set up camp around the town, infiltrating where they could, opening new businesses and playing along with the facade of the families until they can make their move.
The Murphy and Luciano families have bigger problems now. Last year, the Russian mafia, decided they wanted in on the action. The Rasputin’s once followed under the laws the Murphy family set up. They have been living in Boston and the surrounding cities for five years. The Rasputins paid their dues and didn’t ask questions. So, why the change of heart?
Now the town that once lived in content anxiety has been ripped apart by a war no one asked for. There is no taking refuge with the law. They are out for blood just as much as anyone else. Boston is running rampant with criminals both petty and big time. Nobody in this town has a clean conscience. Everyone obeys one side or another, there is no middle ground. Age limit:
February 2010Other details:
We are a mafia based RPG, centered in Boston and the surrounding cities. There are three main families, with a fourth that is completely open to all positions, including the boss. We would love to see more of the Italian family filled, along with more law enforcement.
We need some dirty cops for the old "I scratch your back, you scratch mine". We would love for some older characters, some that have been in the game for a while and have experience. Maybe a FBI agent who has been tracking the families every move and is going slightly mental over his obsession? We welcome all types of characters and the cap on civilians will be lifted soon!( More details )
