THE BOARDWALK EMPIRE — the mafia, accepting members
« on: August 11, 2017, 10:34:54 AM »
THE BOARDWALK EMPIRE
In this crumbling world, there are the wolves and there are the sheep. The sheep are weak. They struggle and eventually let their lives slip away, the darkness of the night washing them away as if they were never here. The wolves, however, make their own way. They band together and hunt the sheep as a pack, using their combined strength to survive. This is the way of The Boardwalk Empire, established by it's first boss known, Charlie Luciano, or more infamousy known as Lucky Luciano. The man, naturally power-hungry and eager to achieve success in this desperate world, founded the family on August 8th, 2017. We're a family business. We're a team. We will conquer, and we will win.

TERRITORY
x x x
The Boardwalk Empire (also known as the Luciano Family) is based in an abandoned boardwalk town that is nestled right beside the open sea, not too far away from the other territories. The wooden boardwalk lines a beach, where sailboats come and go to import and export goods. The boardwalk contains abandoned businesses that anyone can inhabit. If they wish, there are houses down the road to live in as well. Most of the members reside in the casino/hotel building, which is only a block away from the boardwalk. The casino contains card tables, pool tables, and lounges where the family can spend their time. There is a large banquet hall where the boss usually holds their meetings. Everyone is free to live in their own hotel rooms, though the higher up you live, the farther up you have to walk. The boss holds private meetings in the manager's office.

RANK EXPLANATIONS
New inductees into The Boardwalk Empire are sworn under a "blood oath" which involves drawing blood on their right hands and shaking hands with each member of the mafia (whether or not this ritual is played out IC is up to the roleplayer).

BOSS
The boss is head of the organization, the boss is a dictator and has the power to order anything from anyone in the organization. The Boss makes all the important decisions, much like a CEO of a company would. They are usually greatly respected and widely feared by their subordinates.

UNDERBOSS
The underboss is second-in-command in the hierarchy of the mafia. They are ready to stand in for the boss at any given moment. The underboss can easily find himself at the helm of the family so, for the most part, they are usually groomed for an eventual takeover.

CONSIGLIERE
The consigliere, or chief advisor, is the boss' right-hand. The consigliere is not officially part of the hierarchy of the mafia, but he plays one of the most important roles in a crime family. He is the close trusted friend and confidant of the family boss.

CAPOREGIMES
The capo, or caporegime, is the captain or lieutenant of a division within the mafia. They head a large crew of soldiers and can order them to do anything, such as murder, assault, bombing, witness intimidation, bribery, picking up cash, making deliveries, and other criminal and organized crime activities. The captains report directly to a boss or underboss, who hands down the instructions.

SOLDIERS
The lowest-ranking members of the hierarchy are the soldiers, the grunts of the organization who do the majority of the work, making deliveries, picking up cash, committing murder, assault, battery, bombing, witness intimidation, bribing, and generally sticking out their neck in the hope of making a name for themselves by demonstrating their loyalty to the organization, and protecting the organization at all costs.

ASSOCIATES
They are also fair game on the streets, they are not protected by the organization, unless they are a very important and valuable to the Mafia. Associates are not actual members of the mafia, but they work for the mafia or do business with the mafia. Rather anyone who teams up with them on a criminal enterprise of some kind.

FAQ
WHERE IS THE BOARD FOR THIS GROUP?
The Boardwalk Empire doesn't have a board, as it's more of a game-wide organization rather than an official group. You are welcome to make threads relating to The Boardwalk Empire in the Loner Lands board, though. For easier access, feel free to tag your thread #BWE or #TheBoardwalkEmpire.

WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone can join, whether you're a loner, from the Badlands, St. Peter's, or Flintlock Lodge. Think of it as having a secret dual-membership. No form is required; simply state interest in being apart of the mafia below!

WHAT ABOUT POLITICS/FOREIGN RELATIONS?
Every group (Flintlock Lodge, Badlands, St. Peter's, etc) is considered neutral considering that our own members come from different places. If one of those groups decide to do business with us as a whole, then they will be an ally. If they attack us as a whole, then they will be an enemy. No matter what group you're from, you will be expected to fight for the mafia or risk getting exiled, injured, or killed.

HOW IS BUSINESS DONE AROUND HERE?
The mafia pays people in food/protection (or threatens them) to import/scavenge for luxuries such as ammo/alcohol/food. The paid people give them alcohol/other goods that they find. The mafia keeps most of the stuff (and is therefore living luxuriously) but uses a small amount of the stuff to pay off the workers. The cycle repeats. The mafia basically does all that they can to acquire wealth. They may sometimes even hold raids and hijackings on enemy groups.

CAN I PLAY A HIGH POSITION?
You will have to be promoted ICly based on activity and contribution towards the group. It is not first-come first-serve unless stated otherwise.
