The Krasnaya Mafiya
"Добро пожаловать в мафию - Welcome to the mafia."
Ah, the lovable Russian mafia. Filling in the gap between the belligerent street gangs, arrogant Italian mobs, and lowlife Yakuza sits a combination of all three as comrades collect their new fortunes in America. From arms smuggling, to prostitution rings, and to the usual shakedowns and criminal threats relevant to all mafias, the Krasnaya Mafiya rises up to take out a slice of what is usually left to the Italians and Japanese. Of course, not being there first doesn't rightly build up your name very quickly, but we just consider that good for business.
PositionsThe people that make up our fine organization, with Russian transliterals coming before the English position. The first three leader positions, obviously, are taken and only allow one member in such a position, as if you needed to know. The positions afterwards have no limit, an exception being the hitmen, and only until we get to a point to where we really don't need a dozen more Managers or something. If me and my fellow mafia members can work up enough money, I might be inclined to start giving out bonuses (Either payed or item-wise) that are involved with some of the positions, or just a basic check. We'll have to see....
Lider - Leader: Slavik Von Stockholm
Stárshiy Leytenánt - Senior Lieutenant: Akuma
Vtoroj Leytenánt - Second Lieutenant: Slayer
Muskel - Muscle:
Not exactly the lifeblood of the gang, nor the heart, and if you stick with the bodily metaphores, they just become, well, the muscles. How fitting. Anyways, your jacks of all trades, Muscle are pretty much your standard lackeys you send off to do whatever is rightly needed. It won't always include shooting because of that, but when it becomes time to, they're the first with the rifle.
Transportirovka - Transportation:
A bit more wider of a job than you think. While any position could essentially drive a car, it's good to have someone who can not only drive it well, but take hold of a few other vehicles easily too, and make sure it all runs smoothly. You might be first on the scene, but you'll also be fairly detached from it as well. Of course, this could also include the new street racers out there, but it's not exactly our primary concern. Go to town with it if you must, just make sure you have the mechanicle skills to fix all of our shit before we need it, after you're done.
Kontrabandist Oruzhiya - Arms Smuggler:
It's quite the task these days to move weapons, especially when you need to get a mafia's worth past a border or two. While some Muscle might help you carry the stuff, Smugglers are responsible for finding it, getting it through, and selling it off if it's not for our own troops. While it would be more profitable, try not to sell it off to the competition. (This position is a bit more interactive due to the shop and such, so expect a little bit of actual work with this, not like that's a big problem on the internet or something. I might explain privately at some other point, since the system is a bit wonky at the moment...)
Boss Prostitucii - Prostitution boss:
You could call it a pimp, but I could also call you an idiot. From illegal brothels to the streets themselves like every other kid today wants to be on, these Bosses run the oldest professions, bringing in a relatively small, but still sizable revenue into the mafia. Since it can be fairly low-key and isn't exactly the most dangerous job on the force, it's a short day's work on a relatively harmless project.
Nayemnyj Ubijca - Hitman:
Probably the smallest division, it can occasionally bring in the biggest amounts of cash in. For the person who doesn't mind forever losing their own name, you'll be covering your tracks most of the time, meeting contacts for objective and money pickup the other majority, and doing the actual silent killing in-between the rest. Because the prime advantage (Or disadvantage, depending how you see things) of this profession is silence and secrecy, meaning I won't allow more than two (Or three, if the Mafiya grows a bit) at a time, to prevent extra trouble falling on my head because of an overgrown contractual killing industry.
Menedzher - Manager:
While there may be three different leaders running the overall gang, you still can't expect them to manage every little aspect, right? The Managers serve as the middle-men of the firm, informing leaders of going-ons and giving men below them orders and goals. Occasionally, they play the contact rolls for jobs such as the Smuggler or the Hitman, but usually, it's on the field, overseeing everything. Surprisingly, an office is usually a sight you won't see too often.
Etiquette and Other Random NotesThis goes forumwise; that is, don't be an asshole here, even though you are part of a fictional Russian criminal expanse. If you can't take the time out to type legibly when you come calling for membership, don't be surprised when I don't take the time out to accept you in return. We don't charge you for being a member; it's slow, not too profitable, and doesn't work too well with people who might not feel that every other detail of their life deserves a post on this forum, like myself. Just be loyal when shooting time comes around and, as stated, don't be an asshole. Also, we won't shout "Respect" and kick you out if you have something to say to a higher up that might be negative, just remember the number one rule: don't be an asshole. I can't stress that enough. If you can complain about someone without calling them a faggot every two seconds though, you pretty much have it covered.
In case you're wondering why we don't have probationary positions, that's because they're fairly useless at the moment, since we could just kick you out anyways, whether you're a smuggler or a newbie. I might implement it if I start handing out large paychecks at regular intervals (Like I did in the old ARR, when I had a lot of money and gave out about 100K every other day), but at the moment, if you act decent, have at least a few posts for us to judge you on, and won't start running from us to another gang anytime soon without damn good reason, you're in.
Also, yes, we did just go through an entire Russian mafia thread without a Yakov Smirnoff joke, so to make it up to you:
In Soviet Russia, off f*cks you!
You have such nice things in America, like warning shots! What a country!
