Rise and Fall (off)
A monumental motorcycle tour of Los Santos and Blaine County in 10 acts. Prepare to be gripped by this epic tale of success, failure and repeatedly cracking your head open.
It all begins here, in the ‘hood. Where else? You’re tired of course, the endless rounds of drive thru fried chicken and convenience store hold ups. You’re going nowhere, hanging with gangbangers in the skatepark, picking fights with strip club bouncers.
Surely a move out to the upwardly mobile canal-side properties will signal a turn in fortunes, cut your ties to small time crooks. Where’s the action here tho? You’re just running over middle class pedestrians, beating up weightlifters and buying daft masks. Well, you gotta look the part.
This is where shit gets done. Downtown. Moving and shaking, checking out the high rises, visiting car parks, putting things where they don’t belong, running from the law… It’s business time, let’s get to work.
Selling candy, making money. 10 car garages, luxurious condominiums. fine wines, drinking whiskey from an actual glass. A few too many trips to the hospital…. But you’re on a roll.
Finally, the Big Time, Vinewood Boulevard, limousines, champagne, parking your bike in Ponsonbys. Light up that Cuban, brother, you’ve made it. What can possibly go wrong?
Everything always goes wrong of course. Picking up that high class escort girl in a BF Injection and bashing her brains out with a golf club probably wasn’t a great move.…. You’d better skip town, there’s a plane waiting. If you can find it.
Lay low for a bit, this is a nice little town. Problem is, no one trusts a new face, some city dudes robbed the bank and blew a ton of shit up, you’d best clear out before you draw unwanted attention.
Can always rely on farming weed yeah? But country folk talk, the heat is on and the Blaine County cops are tightening the noose, time to bail. Again. Now where did you put that flamethrower?
Well this is great. The sewer all the crap drains through. Nothing here but hillbillies and meth heads, but you’re not so out of place you sad fucking loser. Only one thing for it…
End it all. Make the world a better place and remove a pox ridden excuse of a human being from it (that’s you). Be sure to out in style though eh?. A public place would be best. Maybe squash a few tourists while you’re at it.
Ok, I've put this in it's own thread because I wanted a bit more for it than being a mere addition to my other one. Had made 7 of these races and was looking at the map of all my locations when the idea came to me. Made 3 more to complete the 'story', edited all the descriptions to suit and then split them into 2 playlists of 5 for ease of consumption.
Now I've had major hassle getting online, not so much that I can't create and publish, obviously, but to the point where I couldn't host anything when I finally did manage to get on today. Annoying because the last few I created for this have not been tested with a custom bike, parts 3, 7 and 9. So you guys are hopefully gonna be my guinea pigs here. I'll be posting the individual races with pace notes in my normal creation thread but I thought a new one would be kinda cool to present my er... concept album in. Feedback, if any, put wherever you want.
As for what happens next, well whatever, I'll be running these lists when I can and hope some of you can join me or even feel inclined to run them yourselves. Once I feel it's of a certain acceptable standard, I'll open it up to the general mockery of GTAF.
I'm not taking this too seriously, the whole idea of presenting them like this was a bit of an afterthought if I'm honest, I just kinda got into it. Any creation I do now will be pumped into refining these races as they should be able to stand on their own 2 feet, none were made to be filler. Even the long PtP has been extensively reworked to make it a good run in it's own right. Personally, I'd order the races differently if the lists were just to be run as a series of races, for the sake of flow, but still, here it is.
