Introduction

First off: This roleplay has nothing to do with the movie out in theatres starring Ben Affleck ;)

June 2006

5 college students from California set off on a road trip, during the summer after their junior year. Their destination, according to friends and family was Las Vegas, Nevada. The trip was supposed to last only a week, and two days after their supposed return time, with several unanswered phone calls, a report was filed for the five students missing.

November 2010

A series of 20 tapes are sent to the Los Angelas Police Department showing the events leading up to the murder of the five students, over four years ago, who have still been missing after the many years. They put in the tapes, each with footage of various angles of what looks similar to a small town in the middle of nowhere, showing the two days leading up to the death of the students.

:::::::::::

We are these students if you haven't guessed by now. We are on a road trip to Las Vegas, and have to stop for gas at the first town for miles of barren land. We stop at a quiet little town in the middle of nowhere, that the people call Happytown with a population of a little over fifty. What is supposed to be a quick stop for gas late at night, soon becomes a stay over night when they discover the tires of the car slashed. The night soon becomes a fight for survival against a town of crazy cannibal phsycopaths.

We need five students: 3 girls, 2 guys or the other way round. Either way I don't want 4 and 1. We can add one more person, maybe two but no more. I want long posts, not real long, but no 2 line posts. I want at least a seven sentence paragraph.

Character Sheets:

Name:
Age: (Must be 20-22)
Description:
Personallity: (don't need much just a little background)
History: (once again don't need much to anything, not needed for story)

"Did you get anything out of it?" asked Jacob. He looked back quickly, still trying to keep his eye on the road, to see if anyone was looking at it. He quickly turned back around when he saw Sam was looking at it. When he turned back around, he noticed a large vehicle coming torwards them about twenty yards away. He quickly realized that it was a semi-truck and it was coming full speed, right at them. "Oh my god!" he yelled. He jeered to the right as quickly as he could, but the semi was coming too fast and it pushed the bus completely to it's side into the dead land aside of the barren highway. "Hold on!" he yelled to everyone, and the bus slammed in to the ground next to them.

Mary just noticed what was happening when she smacked her head in to the back of the seat in front of her. The bus rolled to the side, and she flew in to the seat where Sam was, falling on to her. The bus stopped and she guessed the bus was probably done moving. She got off of Sam as quickly as she could, but now they were on the window, with the bus completely on it's side. She crawled over to the next seat, and took a moment to catch her breath. She wasn't hurt much except a few cuts and bruises, but she was still shocked, thinking about what just happened.

The bus swerved, and as odd as it sounds it seemed like it was in slow motion. You know, the kind where the glass barrier is just about to break and everyone inside is going to drown, or when some other traumatic kind of thing is going to happen to the main character in a movie. Well, that's what it was like.

Her thoughts slowed to match the short, but oh so long, free fall as she was thrown off her feet when the bus had swerved. Eiher that, or her mind went into hyperspeed, so much so that it only seemed like slow motion. Probably the first one, I feel to heavy and sluggish to be thinking at hyperspeed, Samantha mused just before she hit the floor of the bus. And suddenly, time sped back up. Faster and faster still, until she felt something, or someone, land on her. Hard.

Something sharp and feeling faintly like a knee or an elbow hit her temple. Later, after she woke up, she would suppose that Mary's knee was the first thing that landed, as it had felt like all of her weight had been placed behind that blow. For now though, Samantha was swimming in blissful blackness. A void inside her mind. She was unconsious in the swerving bus. Knocked into oblivion by a misplaced friend.

Just before the crash, Carlos had stood up and holding onto the seats started up the aisle. "Let me take a look at the map." He had said "I'm pretty good wit-" Was all he could get out before Jacob yelled "Oh my god!" and the bus jeered sharply to the right, knocking him off his feet. "WHOA!" He flew head first into a closed window and the bus slammed to the ground. For Carlos, it had all happened extremely fast. One second he was walking over to the the front of the bus where the girls were, and the next he was laying in shattered glass. It hadn't knocked him out, and although at first he couldn't move, he thought he was ok, feeling nothing as he breathed in. Then he opened his eyes and that's when the pain shot through his head and arm. He screamed, partly from fear. "AAAAAGGGHHHHHH!!!" What the hell just happened?? Carlos thought. One second, I was standing and now I'm laying here and OMG this hurts!!!!! He thought he remembered something about a truck of some sort... but all he could mostly think about right now was the pain.

All Tiger could remember was handing Sam the map and Jacob spoke and all of a sudden she tried her best to grasp for the long metal bar just behind the driver's seat as the gravity pulled her towards Sam's seat. Her arm felt like it was ripped. Her head bumped into the hard seat, though cushioned it hurt like hell.
The screams and shouts of the people in the bus was drowned by the loud screech and crash made by the old vehicle.
"What the fuck!!!!" Tiger choked and had a hard time breathing but managed to curse out of madness.
She didn't move her body as she feared something might be broken and would make the matters worse. She continouly groaned from the pain. "Help..." She uttered as she kept her eyes closed.
Then she smelled something that made her more scared.
Gas leaking.
"Jacoooobbbb... Unnggghhh... Get everyone out...." She moaned and tried to sit up by pulling herself up. "Go...."
"Everyone... hurry..."

Jacob could hear the faint voice of Tiger, yelling to get everyone out. He looked around with a blurred vision trying to figure out what was going on. He saw everyone panicing and trying to get out of the bus. It was turned to it's side, but Jacob couldn't move. His leg was caught under the gas pedal, and was making Jacob wince in pain. It was gashed open and bloody. As he looked around where he was, his sight blurred more and more. His head was matted with blood and glass was all over him. He tried as hard as possible to get out of the way of the maniac semi, but the semi was probably going a hundred miles an hour at them, and he was in the front. The bus was like a slinky in the front, and squashed to where he had no leg room. "Help!" he tried to yell. His voice was soft, but wasn't sure if it was just his head making it seem that way. "Help!" he yelled again. He tried to pull his leg out but could barely move it.

Mary noticed the exit hatch on the ceiling of the bus which was now the wall. She pryed it open letting the light of the sunset in the bus. She looked down at Sam who was unconcious. She ran back and grabbed a bottle of water to splash in her face, but before that, she she had to get her out of here. She grabbed her by her arms, and dragged her out through the hatch. Mary was pretty small, and she was having trouble getting her out, but she managed to get her outside the bus. She looked at the damage, and fire was starting in the bus which ofcourse ran by gas.

Tiger dragged herself and willed to stand up. The crash made her woozy but she managed to keep her balance, falling more than a few times towards to where Mary was heading while she pulled Sam.
"Help!" Jacob yelped from the driver's seat.
"Shit!" Was all she could say. She hurried to his side and tried to help him up. The adrenaline rush and smell of the gas that grows stronger made her pour all her energy out.
But Jacob continued to cry in pain, she saw his stuck foot and slowly brought him down again. "Shit shit shit shit!!!" She paused and tried to be calm.
"Jackson! Carlos! Dax! Anyone?! Jacob's bleeding and stuck! Help!" She called their attention. Mary was helping Sam she couldn't bother her anymore.
"Hold on Jacob! We will get you out! Just don't move!" She pushed back his hair from his forehead and assured him that he'd be out alive.
Her own arm bleeding, she pushed the thought away and tried to get something that would let Jacob's foot free. She grabbed the crow bar but stopped. She didn't know how to free him even with a tool. He might get more damage. "Fuck!" She shouted out of frustration.

(OOC: Sorry about her words :P)

Samantha woke to the strong smell of gasoline and a deep-seeded sense of foreboding and dread. She looked up and saw the face of Mary, who was looking quite worried. Sam looked back to the bus and it clicked, the gas line was severed and soon, it would explode. She stood up quickly, becoming a little light-headed but not enough to throw her completely off balance.

"Mary, we need to help the others!" She yelled to the other girl as she ran back to the bus. At least, if we go, we all go. She let out a bitter chuckle at her cynnical and dark humor.

The first thing she saw was Tiger and Jacob, stuck. She studied the analyzed quickly and had figured out what needed to be done and where. "Tiger, you go get the others out of here, you're stronger than I am, Mary should be behind me to help you. I'll get Jacob out of this!"

She didn't take no for an answer, her adrenaline pumping thourgh her veins, she grabbed the crowbar and kneeled down next to Jacob's stuck leg. She took a closer look and what she saw terrified her. The car had basically wrapped around his leg, he probably broke something, bad. "Jacob, I'm going to need you to not look. Think about something else, and if you can find somthing to bite on, do it." Her face grim and drawn.

She stuck the crowbar into a small pocket next to his shin, the sharp side facing away from Jacob's leg. "On six... One, two, three, four-" She suddenly jerked the crowbar forward so that the top of the pocket would get bigger, then she would work her way down, inch by inch. Soon, she would work her way down to his foot and he'd be free.

Carlos heard everyone talking about gasoline... now that he thought about it, the stench was pretty heavy. Oh crap!!! Despite the pain, he struggled to his feet, Holding one arm against his body. The gash on his head was bleeding like crazy, if something didn't get done about it soon, he would pass out, or worse. He slowly began to step over the seats, feeling like he might fall being light headed as he was. What the hell just happened?? He thought desperately to himself, not thinking clearly from being in shock and having blood loss. I gotta get out... I gotta step over this chair... where's a way out!? He slowly made his way until he found the emergency exit on the ceiling. He crawled out and fell on the ground outside next to the opening. He laid there on his back, not able to think clearly enough to know that that wasn't a safe distance. "HELP!" Carlos yelled. It was all he could think to do.

Mary, surprised at Samantha's quick recovery, nodded and followed her on to the bus. She saw Carlos get out of the bus, and once she got in she looked around for anyone else. Tiger was searching the bus, so Mary guessed she was fine. She saw Sam over Jacob with a crowbar. No matter how much she wanted to help, she knew there was still Dax and Jack still on the bus somewhere. She screamed out their names, searching all over the burning bus. She made her way to the back of the bus, and searched everywhere. As she made it to the end, the door to the storage collapsed right in front of her. Flames covering the bus, and smoke filling the insides. "Dax! Jack!" she yelled frantically. "C'mon where the hell are you guys."

Jacob hollared in pain as she pulled the metal up with the crowbar, with the flat side pressing against his hurt leg. He looked down at his leg, and grimaced in the sight of so much blood coming out of the wound. He began to get light in the head, and after a few minutes of blurred vision, finally fainted, making the pain go away as he fell into deep sleep.

Tiger heard Carlos screaming for help and rushed at his side. "Just a little bit more joker and will be out. Give me your hand. Just think happy thought," Tiger tried to ease the fear and started smiling but tears begun escaping her eyes. She wiped it with her other hand and reached for Carlos with the other. "Come on. You can do it. Just a little bit more..." She reached with all her might. She saw Jacob fainting as Sam tried to help him.

Carlos took her hand and very was grateful for the help. Blood was getting into his eyes from the gash on his head and it was making it hard to see. He wasn't even thinking of anything perverted or funny being led by hand by Tiger. He really was a good guy, just a little to hyper. He held his other arm close to his body as he struggled over the seat. His hand was shaking as they made their way out. He actually couldn't believe someone was helping him.. he had been starting to get the sense that no one really liked him... though he couldn't figure out why.

"Damnit!" Sam hissed under her breath, "I don't need him fainting on me now, though it might actually be fore the best..." She quickly worked her way down to the foot, the temperature rising with every second and the flames growing that much bigger and closer.

"Got it!" She threw the crowbar out the window (who knew when a crowbar would come in handy again?) and rushed to Jacob's arms. Sam locked her elbows under his arms and started pulling, his back on her chest and his head lolled back over her right shoulder made it impossible to relocate her grip on him (or precious time would be lost) or to see anything to her right side.

Slowly but surely she pulled Jacob out the windshield, the largest opening and so the easiest access in and out of the bus.

"Is anyone missing?! Tiger?! Mary?!" She yelled loudly, hopefully everyone would be out soon (in the next minute or so) because the firse was almost at the gas tank. That heap of junk would go off like a sensitive explosive in minutes. They had about five minutes to hide behind the trees that were about a football field away. They could do it, they had to do it.

"Make way for the trees! Otherwise we'll all die in a fiery explosion! RUN!" She screamed at the top of her lungs to anyone that could hear, though unless unconsious they should all be able to, as she started on the long treck there herself though her height, or lack of, coupled with his height made it kind of hard. A lone thought wiggled it's way into her head as she inched her way to safety, I sure hope he doesn't get Nightingale Syndrome or Erotomania from this. That would really suck for me...

Tiger gave all her force to pull Carlos up and helped him out of the bus. She heard Sam screaming to head for the trees with Jacob. It may look funny to see girls helping boys but with the gas and explosion soon coming, laughing would be the last thing to do.
She dragged her friend up and on to the farthest she can leave him. And ran back to the bus to help the others.
"Jackson? Dax?" She cried for her other friends. "Damn it! Sam! Mary! The two guys are missing!" She rushed inside the bus and tried to look for the other two.

((Jackson and Dax seem to be asleep, so we'll pretend their out their with us, and capable of moving. I sent them messages, so we'll see if their still in or not.))

Smoke was filling the bus completely to where she couldn't even see where she was going. After yelling for about five minutes without answer, not finding them anywhere, she ran out of the bus as quickly as possible, coughing with bloodshot eyes, and dirty body. Mary felt around until she found the exit and jumped out of the bus. She saw Samantha motioning to the woods, and realized they had few moments left, before the bus exploded. She noticed Jack and Dax running with them, and wondered how she didn't notice them. As long as they were safe. Nobody was dead, yet. Tiger was still inside, she thought.

Mary peered her head into the bus, and yelled out Tiger's name, coughing violently. "TIGER! C'MON!" She saw Tiger searching the bus. "It's going to explode! The boys are outside the bus!" She pulled her head out of the exit and started running torwards the woods, looking back making sure Tiger was getting out safe. She looked up at the street and the semi was still parked in the middle. She ran up to the truck and looked inside the driver's seat. Nobody was there. She turned back to run to the woods. If only they were there, she could give them a few choice words about a few things wrong with what they did. She went back to the bus and waited for Tiger to come out. "C'mon Tiger!"

Carlos held his arm close to his body and cradled it with his other arm as he started running toward the trees after Tiger let go of him, knowing there was going to be an explosion. He ran awkwardly and slowly, it was hard without the use of your arms and blood pouring down your face out of a large gash. He couldn't really see where he was going, but kept running anyway. He thought about his loving family, his many brothers and sisters, al his friends... he couldn't die now! He couldn't get injured and cost his parents all that money and worry! He sped up a little, but the trees were so far away... reaching them in time seemed impossible. He was absolutely terrified and in pain.

"Mary!" Her friend asked her to leave the semi and asked her to run off as well. She jumped off and grabbed Mary's hand and ran as fast as she can. The rest were situated far enough to protect them from whatever explosion that might happen. Tiger slumped herself next to Carlos and finally let go of Mary's hand. Not far from their tree were the others who were also obviously fear striken and panic. She felt the pain all of sudden and clutched her left arm. She knew she was hurt but not as bad as the others especially Jack. Tears started rolling on her cheeks as she sobbed.
"Help.... help..." She croacked just wanting someone to help them. "HELP!!!!.... Mom...Dad..." She cried and feel on her back as the grass comforted her.

Mary waited for the explosion to just come, yet it wouldn't. Five minutes passed, but it never happened. She finally gave up on waiting and pulled her phone out of her pocket. She held it out and dialed 911. She walked around, putting her phone up in the air, and looking for any signal, yet none came. "Why would there be a signal?" she asked herself. "I mean, our bus crashed and burned from a semi going 100 miles an hour, why cut us a break and give us reception?" She looked back at the group. "I think I'm going to go look in the truck up on the road. There wasn't anyone there, but I never looked for any keys in the ignition." She started torwards the semi when the bus finally exploded. She jumped 5 feet in the air it seemed when it blew. It startled her so much, she thought she might be having a heart attack. "Whoa." A large circle of flames and smoke burst into the air, covering the space where the bus was that had now completely dissappeared.

Jacob's eyes fluttered open slowly, as he noticed the loud sound coming from the bus. In a blurred vision he noticed everyone by him and a large ball of flames shooting up from the ground a few yards away. "What the hell?" He groaned. As he woke up more he suddenly realized the pain he was in. "Ahhh!" he yelled in pain. His leg was throbbing and bloody, and he didn't know what was going on. "Oh god that hurts!" he yelled. He felt like his leg was broken in ten different places, and not to mention, he had a enormous headache.

"Does anyone have bandages? We also need to find a running stream and make a fire, quickly. A metal bowl or cup, that would also be good. See if we can salvage anything else from the bus." She was referring to the fact that a couple of them, including herself, that hadn't taken off their bags, saving them from the explosion when they fled.

"Jacob, stay here. Someone, please watch him. I will go scavenge and see what can be found in these... woodlands. Please, someone else, look for a stream. Another of you, gather firewood and start a fire somehow (you can probably get some flame from the bus, it's still burning pretty well). And lastly, someone needs to make bandages from clothes if we can't find any. If there are any of you without a job now, go in a group to find the river or stream or some body of water." Samantha took charge, no one else was, and she knew how to survive in the wild if that was to be the case.

It was a good idea to bring her "survival guidebook" that she had. It had been a leather-bound notebook that she had written notes in about survival in the wild, in forests especially. Even moreso, finding edible plants throughout many places, especially in winter...

Carlos was sitting against a tree, holding the broken arm to his chest and covering up his head wounds with is other hand. He was curled up in a ball kind of, taking the pain one agonisingly slow minuet at a time. He tried to focus on his breathing, rather than the pain and he got a pretty good rhythm going until the ear shattering noise of the exploding bus interrupted him. He screamed and fell back onto his good arm, heart racing. He started bleeding again as he looked at the blaze. As he started to calm, the pain came on with a new wave of intensity. He sat up slowly, hand on his head again. He grunted as he struggled, sitting back up against the tree.

He tried to get back into his rhythm again to dull the pain when Sam started giving orders. He didn't hear his name, but he wasn't about to go looking for rivers right now. He was covered in blood and starting to feel light headed. Just moving to get back up against the tree had made his dizzy. He moaned, trying to ignore the voices around him and get back into that rhythmic pattern... in... out... in... out... in... out...

After the explosion Sam started giving orders and pulled out a book from her bag. Tiger sat up and wiped her face, her eyes were puffy and everyone else who was uninjured followed Sam. Tiger felt annoyed and pissed at the girl and decided to just sit down.

She noticed Carlos bleeding furiously as well. She immediately helped him and rolled her sweater and placed it on top of a rock to make him feel comfortable. She helped him lie down to ease the pain, "Hold on Carlos, I know what to do," She whispered to her friend. She found two durable sticks and 7 large leaves. She grabbed a bigger wood and walked over to the bus, she lit the big wood and walked back to where Carlos was. She disinfected the leaves by carefully warming them over the burning wood, one by one. She covered his bloody arm and placed the two sticks on each side of his arm and used her handkerchief to tie it.

"Just don't move it too much, hopefully we'll get to find some rescuers," She gave out a deep sigh.
As much as she wants to convince him that they will be okay, she knows they won't be.

She finally finished the improvised cast and checked Jacob, his wound was worse than Carlos and it made her bit her lip.

Mary looked up at Sam giving orders. She understood that it was getting late, but she didn't want to go find streams or start fires. She still wanted to go up to the semi again, now that the explosion was done. She knew that someone was up there in the truck, and they wouldn't have just ran off, unless there was somewhere they could go close by. "Um, Sam? I think I'm going to go search up at the semi for the man who crashed into us, or a CV radio," she said loudly enough to be heard, but still softly. "The semi is still there, which means there's someone still up there." She started back towards the semi-truck. "I'll see if there's a first aid up there too!" she yelled back.

Mary finally reached the semi up the hill on the road. She slowly inched around the truck after looking underneath for anyone. Based on how hard it hit them, this was no accident, and this guy could be a crazy person. She made her way to the left side and walked up to the driver's seat. She looked up in the side view mirror to look for anyone. Nobody was there. As she opened the heavy door to the truck, a voice quietly, but serious, "Get off my truck." Mary jumped, her heart skipping a beat. She looked the woman up and down. She didn't even look like a trucker. She had a flower covered pink dress, and short black hair. She looked as if she came from the 70's.

"Uh, sorry, I uh," she paused, "Are you the one who ran in to us?" That was a stupid question, of course she did.
"Yes," replied the woman, plainly. "My apologies."
"Really, that's all you have to say," said Mary, raising her voice.
"There's a town five miles south," said the woman.
Mary was creeped out a bit. Just the way the woman spoke and carried herself. She seemed as if she was in a trance. She was a bit scared of the woman, so she said quietly, "Uh, ok thanks." The woman nodded and stood there staring at Mary. "Ok seriously, what's your problem!?" she yelled. It felt weird to yell.
"Aren't I helping?" asked the woman. She turned her head to the side still staring Mary down.

"Good idea Mary, you go." Samantha nodded her assent then looked towards Carlos, who she hadn't realized was so bad in her worry for Jacob.

Quietly she said, "Thank you, Tiger. I hadn't known. I am sorry Carlos."

Samantha quickly got back to work on Jacob's leg. She had torn off some long strips of her shirt and used them as bandages, it was good that they were clean, she hadn't fallen in the grass and dirt in any rate.

She heard a whimper, probably from Jacob though it very well could be her own, she wasn't use to this. She hadn't ever seen this much blood on someone in her life, and though she'd never admit it- she was scared. Scared for Jacob, scared for Carlos, scared for the group, and scared for herself.

Samantha started to softly sing a soothing lullaby, to reassure herself, and maybe even help Carlos and Jacob forget their pain- well, if Jacob could hear her inside his unconsious mind.

Loo-li, Loo-li, Loo-li, Lai-lay

Lay down you're head, and I'll sing you a lullaby
Back to the years of Loo-li Lai-lay
And I'll sing you to sleep, and I'll sing you tomorrow
Bless with love for the road that you go

May you sail fair, to the far field of fortune
With diamonds and pearls, at your head and your feet
And may you need never, to banish misfortune
May you find kindness in all that you meet

May there always be angels to watch over you
To guide you each step of the way,
To guard you and keep you safe from all harm,
Loo-li, Loo-li, Lai-lay

May you bring love, and may you bring happiness
Be loved in return, to the end of your days
Now fall off to sleep, I'm not meaning to keep you
I'll just sit for a while and sing:
Loo-li, Lai-lay

May there always be angels to watch over you
To guide you each step of the way,
To guard you and keep you safe from all harm,
Loo-li, Loo-li, Lai-lay

Loo-li, Loo-li, Loo-li, Lai-lay
Loo-li, Loo-li, Loo-li, Lai-lay
Loo-li, Loo-li, Loo-li, Lai-lay

Carlos opened his eyes when he heard Tiger speak his name. "Mmm...?" Was all his response. She was right there, apparently trying to help him... or at least he thought, he was so light headed it was confusing. It definitely showed on his face too, he looked a little out of the loop. He slowly eased down onto the jacket pillow. Judging by how her felt, he knew he had lost to much blood... he needed medical attention. He hoped they would find a hospital soon. His thoughts were interrupted by Tiger putting some leaves on his head, which stung. "Owww!" He wined in protest. As if it didn't hurt enough already! Then she started to try and take his arm, it was frozen bent and he didn't want to move it at all. That was worse than the head wounds. "OWCH! No! Leave it alone! It's fine!" He didn't plan on letting anyone touch his arm any time soon. Of course he was grateful to her, but he was also scared because she wasn't a doctor. What if she made things worse or did something wrong? He wished he could be the one helping instead of having to be helped like this... he hated this.

Re: [OOC] The Town

Do you need a person to play the outside force....like a gang?....if so heres a little taste....i will post a bio for AVON


Avon has control of the entire West Baltimore drug trade. His territory included the prized Franklin Terrace tower blocks and the nearby low-rise projects, referred to as "the pit". Avon ran the organization as a hierarchy with himself at the top and Stringer directly below him. They were both isolated from the drugs, handling only money. Avon himself kept an extremely low profile, eschewing overt displays of wealth so as not to attract attention, avoiding being photographed, not having a driver's license, and owning nothing in his own name. He retained attorney Maurice Levy, who advised him on how to counter police investigations and represented members of the Barksdale organization at hearings and trials.

Avon had a number of enforcers for protection, contract killings, and intimidation work, including his old friend Wee-Bey Brice. He had several lieutenants reporting to him, each responsible for trade in a different area, with some receiving a percentage of the profits ("points on the package") of the narcotics they sold. Beneath the lieutenants there was typically a second-in-command and below them several drug dealers. The dealers would each have a particular role: "touts" were responsible for attracting customers; "runners" would deliver drugs to the customer; "look-outs" were responsible for watching for police or stick-up gangs approaching; or handling the money and the level of supply. Each dealer would receive a weekly cash payment for their work from the lieutenant above them.

Every member of the organization was subject to strict rules designed to thwart police investigations. The dealers were not allowed to carry cell phones or take drugs. They were all aware of how to deal with police interrogation and knew that the organization would protect them up to a point, but if they turned on Avon they would be killed. Lieutenants and enforcers carried pagers so that they could be contacted. They were subject to the same rules as the dealers, but also knew not to talk business in cars, public places or with anyone outside of the organization. Such discussions were limited to property and territory owned by the Barksdale organization.

A strict telephone usage policy was applied rigidly throughout the organization. The pager messages were encoded to prevent easy tracing of the telephones used, all of which were public telephones. The code was based on simple use of the telephone keypad - numbers were swapped with their opposite across the number five, and five was exchanged with zero, making it accessible to poorly-educated drug dealers. Each pager-carrying member of the organization was identified by a number. When pages were returned with a phone call no names were supposed to be used, and if a name was used, the speaker was rebuked. A separate code was used for resupply signals, which involved turning the pager display upside down.

Avon received his narcotics supply through a connection to a Dominican organization in New York and had several other options for suppliers in surrounding cities. The main supply of narcotics was separated from the rest of the organization and held in a house in Pimlico where it could be cut and divided into smaller "stashes" for distribution among the Barksdale towers. Once inside the towers, these smaller packages were moved from room to room on a regular basis, to avoid the scrutiny of police and stick-up men such as Omar Little.

Avon's main office was one of his front organizations, a strip club named Orlando's. It was here, behind a locked and heavily guarded door, that the drug money was counted and secured before being sent on to its ultimate destination. Avon usually conducted his business in this office, rarely venturing onto the street. The club's legal owner, Orlando Blocker, was kept away from the drugs in order to maintain the front's appearance of legitimacy for the city.

The organization laundered its profits through various fronts, including a funeral parlor, Orlando's, and a property developing company named B&B. It also invested in property, never actually using either Barksdale or Bell's names on official papers. It also made campaign contributions—and later bribes—to Senator Clay Davis, ostensibly for assistance with development contracts.
