    We break all the rules!








    FYI A lot of what is below on this page needs updating.. however currently it serves as a good piece of history of how our Crew developed.. To see where it is now see the results of our talk here: http://themercantifamily.clanwebsit...hat-have-you-been-up-to-imgur-journals-r12/10





    Basic Info:

    We are part Mafia Family, part Street Gang. Our members dress up like Mobster or dress down like street hustling Gangsters. Black is our primary color, usually with white or Yellow highlights. At the time of writing we are 23 members strong. We ride together, hit bounties and cruise the streets looking for Ballas and Armenian Mafia members to attack. We are in no rush when we play and are happy to just work on our cars or go base jumping... However, we are always ready for business.

    Play Style:

    We are currently developing our style of play and the culture of our Crew. We are increasingly moving towards Role-Playing the life our characters lead. We try to survive an entire session without dieing and we will avoid the cops at all cost. Playing this way, as if our actions had consequences, is really fun for us and engaging. However all types of players are welcome in the Crew. There is a place for everyone from Beginners to Pro Racers to no nonsense Gangsters.
    When driving with Crew, keep the car on the road or ride shotgun.

    Crew Style:

    Mercanti Family is made up of both types of criminals so the options for outfits are many. Below are just some examples of the Family dressing for the occasion.

    At War:
    [​IMG]

    Doing Dirt:
    [​IMG]

    Family Business:
    [​IMG]

    Street Hustling:
    [​IMG]



    Mercanti Family Territory:

    Family Headquarters:

    Vanilla Unicorn Strip Club.
    [​IMG]
    Where we go to kick back, meetup, count our money & plot the rise of the Family.



    Illegal Rackets:

    Scrapyard Waste Scam
    View attachment 1207
    The yard takes in 12% of Los Santos' yearly scrap metal. With so much being processed, its relatively easy to skim a percentage of the profitable metals and sell it interstate. Very lucrative, however it is the primary reason for our ongoing war with the Armenian Mafia.

    Retail Extortion Racket
    View attachment 1208
    We don't rob stores.... but almost. We receive a sum of money each week from a variety of Clothing Shops, Gas Stations & Liquor Stores in and around south Los Santos. In exchange for this 'fee' we protect the business from robberies and vandalism. However, sometimes the clerk will need reminding of why they are paying US for protection.

    Drug Wholesale Ring
    View attachment 1209
    Drugs are big money in Los Santos, and The Mercanti Family has its hand on the package like everyone else. We accept this as one of the most lucrative and yet volatile Rackets that we deal in. Some of our members supply whole Street Gangs at wholesale prices while others choose to tax street level dealers for operating on our territory.

    Midnight Escorts Inc.
    View attachment 1211
    We do dabble in the 'Entertainment Industry' through our service known on the streets as 'Midnight Escorts'. We make sure that the service remains at a high standard, and also to collect our percentage of the earnings weekly.

    Car Theft Ring
    View attachment 1212
    We have a long standing relationship with a buyer in Europe, plus a network of Chop Shops who are on our payroll. This allows us to steal vehicles and sell them quickly and relatively safely.

    Contract Killing
    View attachment 1213
    The Mercanti higher ups will frequently update all of its members on the current list of Family Targets. These 'Contracts' will be represented by a Red Dot on the radar. These Contracts, or 'Bounties' as some refer to them, are placed on individuals for a number of reasons such as: Being a Rival Mobster, a murder for hire job, an Informant or maybe a Witness. Once a Contract is put out, it is fair game for any Mercanti Member to hunt down.


    Diplomacy:

    Armenian Mafia
    View attachment 1206
    AT WAR: Due to our escalating conflict over the Scrapyard Scam, the Armenians are currently our biggest rival and recently the fighting has been pretty costly. Be on your toes especially when around the Scrapyard it self.

    Ballas Street Gang
    [​IMG]
    IN CONFLICT: Its not safe to drive down Grove St with a Mercanti Patch these days.. although we are not in full war, both groups are always looking to do each other wrong, mostly over the Drug Trade.

    Grove Street Families
    [​IMG]
    UNEASY: There are high tensions between the two groups, albeit without much incident.

    Vagos
    [​IMG]
    STABLE: Things were uneasy between us until recently.

    Mara Bunta Grande
    View attachment 1214
    SUSPICIOUS: A few Mercanti Members planned and executed an auto theft on one of their modded cars..

    Aztecas
    View attachment 1216
    UNKNOWN: Another well known Street Gang that we have not had any dealings with.

    The Lost MC
    [​IMG]
    BUSINESS: We are on good terms with the Lost MC. They are our main supplier of weapons.

    Triads
    [​IMG]
    STABLE: Our interests rarely conflict.


    Crew Gear:

    Weapons:

    We tend to try and use the lowest caliber we can for the task at hand.. no need increasing police heat on your Crew by using a grenade to kill two Ballas sharing a joint on the corner.. However when its needed we will use what ever weapons we can get our hands on.

    Signature Weapons:

    Shotgun
    Silenced Pistol
    Baseball Bat

    Vehicles:

    The goal is to ride with more than one other Crew member at a time so to facilitate teamwork: Each Crew members should ideally have at least one Black 4-Door Sedan or Coupe in their Garage if possible. We try to use the right car for the right job.

    Signature Vehicles:

    Baller
    Exemplar
    Schafter
    Tailgator
    Fugitive
    Felon
    Manana

    Bati 801


    Crew Art and Photos:

    White Mananna, Yellow Highlights:

    Car with Crew Patch:
    [​IMG]

    Bati in Crew Colours:

    [​IMG]


    The Present and the Future:

    The direction of the Crew:

    Increasingly free-roam, hanging out, role play. Looking the part, being the part. staying alive, avoiding the Police when possible. making successful hits without it being messy.

    Recruiting Status:

    The mercanti Family is open to anyone who is interested in joining and being a part of 'this thing of ours'.
    We are looking for good drivers, Role-Players and in general people who are going to enjoy just cruising around Los Santos looking for something to do together in no particular rush.

    Stay cool out there, and hit me up if you want to join, or if you have joined but we have not yet met.

    How to kill some Ballas, the Mercanti way... AKA, making things complicated!

    Step 1:

    Meet up with your Crew. Drink black coffee.

    Step 2:

    Get a black vehicle and your clothing right.

    Step 3:

    Scope out the area. See how many Ballas there are.

    Step 4:

    Separate into 2 groups:

    Group 1: Soldiers: One or more members on foot with concealed Shotgun.
    Group 2: Cavalry: One or more members in a vehicle with Micro SMG.


    Soldiers Walk towards the enemies casually from a distance away, looking for an escape route near their targets as they approach. Soldiers then open fire on largest enemy group from point blank then immediately head towards escape route.

    Cavalry Will perform a brief Drive-By shooting on enemies near Group 1. They will time their entrance based on the Soldiers movements, ideally arriving just after the first assault has started and the Soldiers are making their getaway. Their primary duty is the getaway however they need to take the attention off the more vulnerable Soldiers with a decent Drive-By shooting.

    Step 5:

    Both groups meet at nearby rendezvous or meeting point. Soldiers enter the vehicle of Cavalry Group if there is room. If there is not room a getaway vehicle would be placed there before hand by the Soldiers for their own escape.

    Step 6:

    Get home, incinerate your clothing, get your alibi straight, cook dinner for the misses and get your head right.


    How to kill some Ballas, the usual way:

    Step 1:

    Just run in there and kill them etc... but i have done that a lot and so like coming up with new ways of looking at it.

    And if that's not your thing then here is what Paulie has to say:

    Nah Paulie dont mean it! :)

    Hey Arc, im glad to hear your interested..

    Id like to make something clear so that you dont join with the wrong expectations.

    We have 25 members currently. about 18-20 have joined me since November when i formed it. Recently i decided to step up the Crew and try and take it to the next level. so those 18-20 members did not sign up for what i have described.. however the next 100 members or so will come to The Mercanti Family after having read this thread or in some way learned of our ideal style of play, the realism and role-play style.. so im looking for members who want to be a part of building this ideal with me. If that's you then its great news for us both.

    all 25 members you will find will be fairly active and decent teammates. other than if your online with my self and maybe 2-5 others currently, you could expect a similar style of play as you would expect from any crew. However when you roll with me we will be all RolePlay, staying alive, avoiding police heat, driving on the road, destroying evidence etc.. :)

    So the choice is up to you my friend, if this sits right with you then your most welcome to join us.
