The 'High' Life (TWI Only|OOC)

Postby Samudera » Tue Aug 15, 2017 1:14 am

The ‘High’ Life
A ‘cat and mouse’ RP




OOC Info

The RP will involve the two spheres of drug dealing and gun smugglers - the two will be interconnected through the formation of a multinational criminal organisation. The organisation will be linked to various terror groups, especially those which operate in the wider Gael region. The criminal organisation will be headquartered in the Outer Badlands of Heddwich, which is a lawless territory governed only by a group of vigilantes. This RP could involve police, intelligence and many different law enforcement departments as well as relevant government agencies, committees and commissions. It could be linked to the Kachee Caliphate if its manager is willing to allow that.

IC Storyline (Proposed, open to discussion)

Drugs have always been illegal in Samudera and the police have waged a ‘war’ against drugs for almost thirty years. Despite this, drugs could be frequently found in clubs and bars around the nation. A drug cartel was recently caught in Ainslie, which following an investigation, was found to be connected to major drug cartels supplying Samuderan markets. Raids were conducted across the islands in Samudera and their major base was found in a remote western island of the nation. It was discovered that the cartels were using Heddwich and Fujiraha as bases to supply Samudera and Ainslie. The cartel managed to transfer ten tons of drugs every day and almost had a monopoly in the two nations. The Samuderan police then decided to ask for help from the Ahnslens, who used their G4 intelligence sharing capabilities in order work out the original incident. The Samuderans then asked for the government of Heddwich to raid the cartel’s base.

Back in Samudera, the leader of the Nationalist Party and a well known pro-gun campaigner was found to have connections to the criminal organisation, Sri Agata Liman was then charged with the appropriate crimes. The arrest led to one of the most prominent cases in Samuderan history. Sri was found to be funding covert smugglers, known as the ‘Merdeka Groups’

It was discovered that this group was linked to a TERRORISTGROUPS that had been funding INSURGENCYGROUPS in COUNTRY.

The rest of the story and the ending will be decided upon consideration

Timeline of the RP

Part I: Discovery (~7 days)

Synopsis
Discovery will mainly be in relation to the ‘discovery’ of the drug ‘Buzz’. It will also detail the effects that current drugs have on nations, as well as this new drug. This part will probably be heavy on news posts, as the State as a whole and as a government respond to the issue. This part could also highlight the daily struggles of police officers and medical staff to respond to this issue.

Part II: Connecting the Dots (~14 days)

Synopsis
Connecting the Dots is all about the larger supply chain. This is where governments and international agencies begin working with each other and finding similarities. This could be particularly a good point to bring an insight into the smugglers and their efforts to evade the government agencies - or just walk through the Heddwichian desert, completely safe. Up to you. In this part, Ainslie busts a small part of the supply chain, working with Fujiraha to disrupt the shipment of goods to Samudera and Ainslie. Despite this, the organisation expands and governments need to find a way to stop this before it gets any worse.


Part III: Following the chain (~10 days)


Synopsis
Following the chain involves different governments working together to work their way back to the source of the drugs and arms smuggling. This is where a lot of writing around ‘Investigators’ could go. It is also suspected that they wider supply chain has bank accounts in Keverai, a former colony of Ainslie and swiss-bank style drama begins.

Part IV: Breaking the chain (~7 days)


Synopsis
Governments begin to work out what is going on and trace it all back to Heddwich’s badlands. Here is where the Heddwichian government cooperates/cooperates partially/flatly rejects the demands of nations which have been so affected by this drugs epidemic. Samudera works out that politicans in their nation are involved with this all.

Part IV: Breaking the chain (~7 days)


Synopsis
Governments begin to work out what is going on and trace it all back to Heddwich’s badlands. Here is where the Heddwichian government cooperates/cooperates partially/flatly rejects the demands of nations which have been so affected by this drugs epidemic. Samudera works out that politicans in their nation are involved with this all.

Part V: The Judicial Witch Hunt (~7 days+)


Synopsis
This is where the institutions of various nations clean up the mess in their own nations, as well as fight for jurisdiction over different suspects - this is where the League could come in. Samudera prosecutes their corrupt minister, Ainslie does some major court trials.

How will this be done?

There are an array of methods that this RP could be implemented by, this is mainly open to discussion, but news posts will be an essential feature to this RP. If you have any input, please kindly post it here.

If you have your own story or ideas concerning your own country, please see this google doc here and filled your part. https://docs.google.com/document/d/17Yb ... 7A9Xw/edit

:blink: This looks cool! Drugs (they are not legal, be they aren't exactly illegal either. The regulations regarding them are very vague) and firearms are widespread in Lardingo. Lardingo could easily become a supply hub for the cartels.

If you guys are interested, you could share your own stories! How this will go in your countries, will it affect others (and what it'll affect). Or any suggestions at all actually

I will start this by posting news about the drugs cartels this Friday

Evidently the main theme in Fujiraha would be the smuggling of these drugs through the mountains with the help of seperatist groups. Looking at a map they would most likely come from Heddwich into Dhan-Lekhan and Dikshan with the help of seperatist groups who would take a part of the profits. From there it would most likely go to smugglers who would get them from the mountains and hills to the ports in those republics. This would be the route for them to get to Samudera, Ainslie and other places.

If Agadar wanted to have a drug problem in his nation the drugs could be smuggled throughout the mountains on trails the seperatists use to get around, it would pass through the republics of Timbahan and Bindeshan. These drugs would likely be more pricey as the Fujin Armed Forces routinely target these trails when found and a good portion of product may be destroyed. It could lead to higher prices in Agadar which could hurt his economy a bit, if he wants it.

There would be two parts to my countering of drugs, the military against the seperatists, and my police forces trying to stop the smugglers in the overland journey to the ports.

This could provide a stable understory to my nation's seperatist problems, which while not horrendous, will be a thorn in its side for quite some time.

Well, I guess I can port them over. I haven't gotten them worked out.


Perhaps our cops have just discovered that our local mafias we're investigating have wormed their way into your international drug-running arms-smuggling cloud, so we work with the other nations' police forces involved to help stop the crime.

That's a realistic scenario. My govt just recently discovered this cartels and so asked others govt's help. Coincidentally you're investigating your local mafias to be associated with cartels working in Samudera. How's that?

What do you mean?

Okay, so drugs in this sense are any illegal addictive substances that had been regulated in each nations' law.

Yeah, but maybe this time you could RP as the SHOCK itself :p

Is it possible for SHOCK to be involved in drugs cartel? I could imagine them involved in guns smuggling, as Heddwich is basically a lawless region in the outskirts. Or even Kachee Islands!

Also, Yakhoya is an elite communist terrorist of some sort? I just know about their existence now.

Yeah radical leftists who use their social status as celebrities, businessmen, students and a self-proclaimed social charity organization in general to gather more recruits and money to fund movements by local terrorist groups.

On the other hand, SHOCK are a bunch of conservatives and radicalized disillusioned youths.

Yeah like I said, Yakhoya has no problems since they are wealthy and get extra funds (and weapons and trainers) from EUSR. SHOCK did need several groups that did trade with them on guns and ammo business. In return, SHOCK could supply them with drugs (as I said, AM's 3 million pop is mostly in three-five cities with loads of mountains, steppes and forests where SHOCK could be hiding and gathering plants used for drug manufacture or just plain smuggle rare herbs and animals) from AM and maybe their bases in rural Arvan and Kachee.

Given one of the themes of all the crime is gun-running, my country has a very large arms exporting industry. Perhaps as another layer, people source their guns from Verona Beach but have to smuggle them out due to strict regulations.

My situation is opposite. There are almost no regualtions, so as long as one pays a light tax, one can export to their heart's desire.

Maybe gun-runners can set up a corporate front or sometthing in Belle Ilse en Terre?

Perhaps, yes. I imagine the main activity of the mafia would be gun-smuggling.
