A tall, dark skinned man walks up to you, pats you on the back, and shakes your hand.

"You're new to this town?" he asks. "Oh, I see...so you don't know how it works, do you?" You quickly shake your head.

"This place isn't lollipops and rainbows. You're put into one of six catagories as you live through the motions.
You're a gangleader, a thief, a prostitute, a drug dealer, a pimp, a victim, or a gangmember.
Being a gangleader takes some skill, kid. You need to work your way to the top and fight off the current gangleader. Or you can take the cheap route and just start your own gang.
A thief is easy: mug your victims, steal their lunch money, and you're outta there. This catagory includes shoplifters and carjackers.
Prostitution can be difficult, in a sense. It earns the most cash out of any of these. The problem is, you can't advertise. You have to go with it. It's not only illegal, but hard to keep in the right people's minds.
Drug dealing. If you're a drug dealer, you've probably been something before this, because of the high costs. It may not be true, but more often then not, you were a gangleader. ((If your character has a history of being from a rich family, this is ideal.)) It's one of the hardest jobs-Everyone wants to be on top.
Victims. Victims are normal people with no intent of breaking the law. You earn a steady pay from your job every week. ((Unlike the others where you earn different amounts))
Gangmembers are the grunts of the town. It's probably the easiest job you can get. You get the lowest pay each week, but you have loyal guys to stand behind you. This is the overall easiest place to get, but you get the least pay a week, unless your gang mugs a victim."
Pimps are what they are. They collect women and use them as toys. Prostitutes are their toys.

You stare into his green eyes. What will your destiny be?

--

South Central is a run down city just outside of the San Francisco borders.

Some call it a "Ghetto."

--

The basic rules are:

~This is an Alternate Universe Adventure Time-Your OC MUST be a human.

~You can be any of the six levels, but for some, (Like, Drug dealer,) you need background information that would back up why your OC would choose this path.

~If an attack is launched please inform an admin of the group. They will decide what happens in the attack-Whether the attacker stole every penny from the victim, or got half and got beat. There are plenty of outcomes. (This is decided by the strengths and weaknesses of the attacker(s) and the Victim(s)) You will be informed through a comment on your application that your OC is being attacked. If your gang is being attacked, the gangleader will be told that it is under attack, and it is up to them to inform the rest of the members.

~When filling out your application, please include UP TO 3 weaknesses, and 3 strengths. (You must have as many weaknesses as strengths to prevent sueism. But you may have more weaknesses.) The ones you can use, are:

Strenghts:
Muscley
Witty
Speedy
Nimble
Street Smart
Book Smart
Charming
"Can shank a cop and get away with it"
Secretive

Weaknesses:
Wimpy
Dumb
Loudmouth
Slow
Lanky
Awkward
Nerdy
Unable to keep secrets
Unloyal

(Any ideas would be helpful! c:> )

~PLEASE save the raw file of the picture on your application in case your OC does not get their desired category. (For instance, if your OC is an awkward, loudmouth, booksmart, unloyal person, they're most likely not going to be a drug dealer. If you think a little outside the box though, and give a good reason, I'm all for that!)

~If your OC is a gangmember, they will always be accepted. (Unless that specific gang is not open for new recruits.) Same thing goes for "Victims."

~If your OC is launching an attack, please remember it doesn't always have to be on a victim. Victims are just easiest since they aren't street trained. (It can also be on a gang or group.)

~There are specific rules for each category that need to be followed. They'll be listed  in the gallery folders.

~When your OC starts, they start off with a house, and 1,000-10,000 Dollars (I'm sure you're all aware that a dollar is like a Euro, a Yen, etc.) This will depend on their background and how much money they are expected to have.

~When signing up, please make sure you put this in the description:

Name (First, middle, last)
Age:
Gender:
Category:
Class (Low, Middle, High):
Strengths:
Weaknesses:
Backstory:
Prefered type of roleplay (Script, Paragraph):

*Class is amount of money they have.

*Roleplay types are:

Script Example- *Hits* You idiot!

Paragraph Example- The man swung at the small woman. "You idiot!" he exclaimed as the woman shook fearfully.

~Every week, Victims, Gangleaders and Gang members get money. Victims receive 500$, and Gang members receive 200$ (given by the gang leader to each member of their gang.)

~IF you run out of cash, you go into Poverty. Ones who are in poverty are listed on the homepage, and people may give them 20-100$. When someone has earned or has been given a total of 500$, they are taken off the poverty list.

~In regards to prostitution: If you feel you are going to roleplay what "Happens," when a prostitute is paid, please bring it to a chatroom. ( chat.deviantart.com/chat/Priva… ) We would like to keep our pages PG-13.

~If you have ANY questions, feel free to comment here, or note the group :)

~Oh, and, have fun. Please don't take people attacking, hurting, or doing anything your OC personally :aww: If your OC is successful, this is more likely to happen to them.

I have a few comments..
"You're a gangleader, a thief, a prostitute, a drug dealer, a pimp, a victim, or a gangmember."
Those are all a little fucked up and stereotypical for a ghetto. And who wants to RP as a prostitute?! That's insane.
"Drug dealing. If you're a drug dealer, you've probably been something before this, because of the high costs. It may not be true, but more often then not, you were a gangleader. ((If your character has a history of being from a rich family, this is ideal.)) It's one of the hardest jobs-Everyone wants to be on top."
This REALLY pisses me off. I have a LOT of personal experience with this. I have never known a dealer to be part of a gang. Dealing is very hard yes, but only because you have to keep it quiet. You can't tell ANYONE without knowing who they are, how they know you, what they want, ect. Cops are a huge issue. A few friends have been busted because of cops. You don't need to worry about other dealers. You need to worry about your client base and what they say. Word of mouth spreads pretty quick.
"Victims. Victims are normal people with no intent of breaking the law. You earn a steady pay from your job every week. "
So I get to RP with a 9-5 job for shitty pay and then I get to be mugged because almost everyone else here is trying to rob me. Not me specifically, but my "group". How could that be fun..?
"South Central is a run down city just outside of the San Francisco borders."
Is Ooo now inside America? Somehow? This one just boggles my mind..
"Some call it a 'Ghetto.' "
Considering most people who live there spend their time trying to get OUT of it, why anyone would want to pretend to be there is beyond me. Maybe I'm stupid.
Under Strengths: " 'Can shank a cop and get away with it' "
Do you understand how horribly unrealistic that is? I'm all for fun and games in an RP, but for fucks sake, keep it at least rational. The reason "Cop Killer" is such an insult is because not only are you a fuckwad for attacking someone who's job it is to protect you, you also have an entire city's police force actively hunting your stupid ass.

Sorry for ranting, but Jesus Christ this is offensive, ignorant, and overall stupid.

Hi. Yes. I know this comment is old but I'm going to reply anyways. I live in one of the many ghettos in my city (one of America's most dangerous cities I might add) and I can verify that there are gangs, drug dealers, whores, thieves, and most certainly victims. You are right about the Cops being a huge issue, however. My neighbor (a convicted cocaine dealer) was shot and killed by the police during a drug raid when he pulled out an AK-47. That sounds like an issue to me. Also South Central is AU for a reason. It doesn't have to be in the post-apocalyptic world known in the cartoon.

And hi. I came up with the line "Can shank a cop and get away with it." I was basing it off a comic I read titled "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac." The main character never gets caught. In one issue he disembowels a few cops with a spork and runs away. THAT is where that idea came from. The more you know.

I RP as a prostitute and believe it or not there are members who classify themselves as victims as well. If this isn't your thing then be my guest to disagree but please don't post angry comments telling us why we're dumb.

No, and I could on in depth and argue against all the arguments you made.
But I don't care because today I couldn't give less of a shit about anything "bad" that happens to me. Today has already been perfect.

I would like to point out first and foremost that this is all fictional it's not real so you shouldn't be getting that upset about it if you don't like the group that's great then don't join but don't make the people who are a part of the group feel bad for joining.

Also I joined the group and my character is a prositute, and yes, I very much enjoy rping as him. Its fun BECAUSE its fantasy. BECAUSE its not real, thats the point of ROLE PLAYING. If you have an issue with the stereotypes portrayed please leave this page with your back button, your opinion was not asked, were just trying to have fun and roleplay in our little group, if you don't like it go make a group about unicorns and rainbows and sunshine. K thanks.))

"I would like to point out first and foremost that this is all fictional it's not real so you shouldn't be getting that upset about it"
There are so many examples I could give to disprove that opening statement. But I'll give one that most people who will be reading this can relate to. RP Drama. Its everywhere, with everyone, and will stay in every RP that happens. It just does. Get a bunch of people together and some will dislike others.
But its cool, because its just an RP. No need to actually hate the person who is typing commands through their RP Puppet. Oh wait, people hate things even if they aren't real.

I role played not to escape life, but to immerse myself into someone else's. Not because it wasn't "real", it was very real to me. The people I was interacting with showed themselves to me through a character, and I thought of that character as a person.
In the journal it says "If you have ANY questions, feel free to comment here, or note the group". So I'm commenting here.
