“The first duty of a revolutionary is to be educated.”
― Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara
Wise words from perhaps the most famous revolutionary of all time. Now how about living by them and actually read all the party info?
- The party will be on May 2 at 20:00GMT.
- Make sure you’ve read the story before participating. It makes it all the more fun when you know what’s going on.
- Everyone who owns a PS3 is welcome to join in on the fun.
- Participants will be split into two teams. One team of revolutionaries and another of a squad of Merryweather soldiers.
- The revolutionary team has to win missions in order to successfully start a revolution. The Merryweather team has to win missions to prevent a revolution.
- The dress code is, you guessed it, ‘revolutionary’.
- Weapons and ammunition will be provided during the missions, so you don’t have to spend all your hard earned heist cash on ammunition.
(Here’s some music to set the mood)
It’s early March 2019. The United States’ debt crisis continues to spiral out of control. The country now has 21 trillion dollars in debt and the government is once again about to go bankrupt. The usual giant wads of foreign cash are no longer an option, as the world has come to realize that the ‘land of opportunity’ is nothing more than an old giant clinging to the cliffs with it’s last finger.
With bankruptcy imminent and a civil war peeking around the corner, China who owns a 7.2% cut of the debt pie, has offered a way out. The Chinese government is willing to settle the debt in exchange for the annexation of United States soil. San Andreas to be exact. With the country’s best interests at heart, the government accepts the offer.
A Sino-American provisional government is appointed to make the annexation of San Andreas go as smoothly as possible. However the people of San Andreas will not stand for it. A period of social uprising starts. Riots and protests are at the order of the day. The provisional governments response becomes increasingly violent. What started out with propaganda and a few arrests here and there has become the disappearance of entire families, torture, prosecutions without trial, executions and deadly force against protesters.
“The revolution is not an apple that falls when ripe. You have to make it fall.”
― Che Guevara
Something has to be done. The social injustice that has it’s roots deep within the greed of a corrupt people must be stopped. Team one, a group of rebels from South Los Santos, has organized itself into ‘The Movement Of May The Second’ sets out to do just that. It’s mission to unite the people and spark a revolution.
― Che Guevara
Prologue – Inter arma enim silent leges
Our beloved supreme Sino-American government has started rationing food. Imagine that, rationing food in America! Are the Chinese really that crazy for junk food? Small futile attempts at raiding soup kitchens are at the order of the day. One of the most popular ones is located in West Vinewood, across a building site. A crowd of hungry desperate people is becoming more and more rowdy and Merryweather has been dispatched. As for the rest of this story, you know the drill.
Immigrants are being blamed for the problems within Los Santos (Ignoring the governors of the city are immigrants, hypocrites!) the easiest way to solve this is to deport some of our more “colourful” friends.
Rebel team: Prevent the deportation. Drop the soon to be refugees off at your workplace at the docks for now. No one will look for them there.
Merryweather: Deport the immigrants. Pick them up and bring them to the docks where a ship is waiting for them.
Lucratori te salutant
Objective: Pick up and deliver your armed vehicle to your base before the other does. The mission doesn’t involve fighting and is essentially a race.
Story: Word has spread of your efforts fighting injustice in southern L.S. and small group of rebels in Vespucci Beach led by former arms trafficker Oscar Guzman wants to join forces with you. There is just one problem however. Merryweather has become aware of the location of Guzman’s rebel base and is about to deploy a squad of heavily armed Merryweather mercenaries to make them all mysteriously disappear in preliminary detention. Move Guzman’s equipment, firearms, grenades and four Rebel pick-up trucks, one of which with mounted machine gun to your base (which is your workplace. Your boss has fled the country, so he won’t mind) as quickly as possible.
With Guzman’s support we can start thinking bigger. The media just covers up our small attacks as unfortunate accidents on Merryweather’s part. If we strike them hard, if we put them to shame, they’ll no longer be able to ignores us. Hasta la victoria siempre!
- A base of operations
- 1 Technical armed truck
- 3 Rebel trucks
- A variety of medium powered firearms
Story: Listen up shit heels! Provisional government chairman Tiankai is not pleased with our performance. There are riots all over our beautiful Even Farther East city and Mr Weston wants action. He’s sourced us more Insurgents LPV’s, one of which with a mounted machine gun, and some extra heavy firepower with a steady supply of ‘rubber bullets’. Don’t give me that look soldier! I’m sure there’s a few molecules of rubber on those commie stoppers. Now move it ladies! I want to hear those cunts whistling in the wind! Get the trucks and report back to base!
- A base of operations
- 1 armed Insurgent Pick-up truck
- 3 unarmed Insurgent
- A small variety of heavy machine guns
Objective: Take the heavy weapons from the checkpoint and defeat the other team.
Story: One of Guzman’s intelligence operatives has heard of a great opportunity that will put The Movement on the map and show the people of San Andreas that there’s still hope for change. A new checkpoint has opened on the La Puerta freeway, conveniently located in between two parking garages. The Merryweather team in charge of the checkpoint is heavily armed, but also fresh out of the academy. If we take position on top of both garages we can easily pin them down and move in to steal their weapon supplies. East team: Take cover and use the Technical to distract Merryweather. West team: While Merryweather distracted, use grenades to blow up the Insurgent pick-up. Three grenades ought to do the trick.
- Increased support of the People of San Andreas
- A large supply of heavy firearms and explosives
- Sets of Merryweather uniforms
Story: TEEEEEEN HUT! Alright you soup sandwiches, listen up! Tiankai has ordered a new checkpoint be opened on the La Puerta freeway and the government needs a team of degenerates to operate it, you! Check every vehicle going through. If thing get heated for some reason, and I don’t mean any licky-licky action you sickos, there’s an extra armed insurgent at your disposal and a large supply of firearms. MOVE IT, MOVE IT, MOVE IT!
- A large supply of heavy firearms and explosives
- An extra armed insurgent pick-up truck due to increased terrorist activity
Chapter 3 – Non Sequitur
Objective: Deliver/steal the M-02-05 supplies and bring it to your (new) base
Story: Our eyes are bigger than our stomachs. Our warehouse has simply become too small. Over the past few weeks more and more rebels joined our cause and the place is full of guns and vehicles. We need a new base of operations asap! With this much going on at a small warehouse, Merryweather is sure to catch onto us any day now. Luckily Guzman has a cunning plan. It’s a high risk mission, so it’s on a need to know basis only and the only thing you need to know is that you have to move all of our supplies to the Merryweather base to the rest of here. Guzman’s guys will take care of the rest.
- A new, much larger, base
- Loads of Merryweather equipment
Story: Ops to Pacific Allied Shipyard team… Ops to Pacific Allied Shipyard team… Pacific Allied Shipyard team respond… damn those guys. Ops to Merryweather patrol. One of our surveillance drones has picked up terrorist activity on Elysian Island west of our base. Suspects are heavily armed. Move in to intercept. When suspects are elimin… apprehended, move terrorist equipment to Pacific Allied Shipyard team and investigate possible communications malfunction.
- Loads of rebel equipment
Objective: Ambush and steal the Valkyrie from the IAA heist team.
Story: I love Guzman’s intelligence op. He has managed to tap into Merryweather’s ‘secure’ com channel and picked up on their red alert. Apparently the Humane Labs has been raided by a team of four people in a Valkyrie attack chopper. We could really use one for the revolution. They were last seen at the Land Act Reservoir. Better get there quick. And be careful, Merryweather has a real lady boner for this one.
- Valkyrie attack helicopter
Story: CODE RED! ALL SOUP SANDWICHES REPORT TO THE DEPLOYMENT BAY! THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Security at Humane Labs has been breached. Helicopter squadron has been downed by a team of four suspects in a recently stolen Valkyrie. Suspects were last reported attempting to land at the Land Act Reservoir. Deadly force is permitted. Bring back the Valkyrie and any stolen objects and information.
- Valkyrie attack helicopter
Merryweather: Drive the recording down to city hall.
Rebels: Intercept the recording and take it to its own base.
Story: This just in over the Merryweather channel. Tiankai is about to send a big speech over the airwaves on all frequencies that could severely damage the people’s trust in the oncoming revolution. We need to stop that recording from reaching City Hall. Grab a Sanchez and take the recording to Guzman’s troops, who have positioned themselves at the abandoned Maibatsu factory. We will coordinate the future war effort from there.
Story: OKAY SHIT HEELS, LISTEN UP! Tiankai fears a full scale revolution may be imminent. As a response he has pre-recorded a speech for the masses. Deliver the recording to city hall. Hopefully it will have the same effect as it had when Juan Carlos I of Spain stopped a coup by appearing on TV.
Aut Vincere Aut Mori
The people have been called upon. They have taken to the streets. The revolution is here! Today history will be written. The world will see who controls San Andreas!
Chapter 1 – M-02-05 is coming
Merryweather has found out about M-02-05’s base at the Maibatsu factory. If the rebels are to succeed in their efforts, they will have to defeat the Merryweather team assigned to taking them down.
Chapter 2 – Bringing the Cavalry
Thanks to Guzman’s cunning, Merryweather still thinks the base at the Pacific Allied Shipyard is still under Merryweather control. Most of M-02-05’s equipment is located there and is needed for the final siege against Merryweather and the provisional government. The rebels couldn’t get Merryweather of their tail in time and will have to fight for it.
Chapter 3 – Storming Merryweather’s
The rebels are taking the fight to Merryweather… literally! Quickly disabling the main Merryweather base is vital if the rebels are to take control of San Andreas. On the other hand if Merryweather can stop M-02-05 here the revolution will be no more than a small uprising at the docks.
Finale – City Hall
(NOTE: NOT A CAPTURE. MEANT TO BE PLAYED AS A TEAM DEATHMATCH)
The big push. This is what M-02-05 has been working for and what the government and Merryweather have worked so hard for to prevent. Whoever wins this battle will have control over all of San Andreas, but can they keep control over it? That is up to how well the teams did in the precious chapters. Good luck!
