Introduction

Introduction

Welcome to Miami.......

A city of prosperity and hope.....At least on the surface.....

The Montez Crime Syndicate is at its peak and almost all of the Criminals who want to be someone have either worked for them or are currently working for them. The man in charge of this Syndicate is Hernando Montez. He is a millionaire Cuban with all of the power in the city at his finger tips and loves to demonstrate that power. Sometimes even on the innocent. He likes to sit in his heavily guarded Mansion in South Beach while his business takes care its self. The police are completely aware of the choke hold he has on the city but what can they do about about it when he is funding their department? He runs the City with his two generals: His son Luis, and his nephew Horacio. Luis is in charge of North Miami while Horacio is in charge of South Miami. Alana his daughter, is Daddy's little princess and is usually found partying and getting drunk at the expense of others. It doesn't matter what she does to whomever, daddy always has just enough money to pay for it. Hernando Montez is a very dangerous man who will do anything to maintain his power, but what happen if the people he has been oppressing finally say "No more...."


Hello and Welcome to JUST LIKE PARADISE A revenge crime roleplay set in 1988 Miami with good action and AWESOME music.

You will be In charge of creating a character that has been wronged in some way by the Montez Crime Syndicate. Your Character will cross paths with other characters maybe even team up and bring down Mr. Montez. I anticipate things will not happen over night so have fun in the city as well! Your Character should have a job as well, from a business man to a Stripper I don't care but there has to be some sort income. Not that crime won't count but innocents aren't the target in this roleplay. Your Character will also have some sort place they call home, ranging from seedy motel rooms to luxurious penthouses. Better weapons and explosives will probably be revealed later.

People You Should Know:

Luis Montez: Hernando's spoiled very angry son. He is very muscular and fit but not very smart about somethings. He is very hot headed and has been prone to freak out easily. He has been charged with many cases of battery and rape but of course nothing stuck.Luis is also not afraid to kill or make an example of people he doesn't like. He is in Charge of North Miami And Can usually be found at one of the larger Montez owned Nightclubs called The Derelict. The place has armed guards and usually only VIPS and very beautiful people get in. Luis uses that place as his base of operations.

Horacio Montez: Horacio is kind of the opposite of Luis except just as malicious. The two are the same age but He is quite a bit smarter and to his cousin's expense, next in line to be in charge after Hernando. Horacio is tall and slender and very fit. He doesn't let his emotions get in the of his work and he feels no remorse towards killing people. He is kind of the son Hernando wishes he had. He is usually at a beach house that is very heavily armed with guards and he takes pride in his two doberman dogs that are no strangers to sicking people.

Alana Montez: The also very spoiled plastic daughter of Hernando Montez, She is just as evil as the rest of her family. She usually moves around with a small entourage of her lady friends partying at numerous clubs in the City. She usually always makes a stop at The Derelict when she is out partying. There is always some sort of armed guard with her as well. Many people people have suffered at the hands of Alana due to her drunkenness and her life style.

Matt stood in a music store looking at the Iron Maiden Albums. The sun was beginning to set and orange rays of light filled the big windows in the front of the store. He had planned on picking up their latest album, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son but that wasn't initially why he was there. He was following someone. Well actually three someones, they were thugs in the Montez Crime Syndicate and they were going to lead him to one of their safe houses. He had been trailing them for a couple of but they didn't seem to have noticed yet.Keeping a good distance away all he had to do was follow them. One of the thugs began to look in Matts direction, acting quickly he picked up a nearby album and approached a young female store clerk. "Excuse me ma'am could you tell me about this album." It was Cat Stevens' Buddha and the Chocolate Box. keeping the thugs in his peripheral vision. He had lost there suspicion which was good. One of the thugs made his way up to the counter where an older looking man was attending. The old man's face whitened as the thug began to threaten him. Things were about to get out of hand real quick, if that happened they would have to take it outside to the construction site outback and away from populated streets of Miami.

Al had taken over the register so Janice was reading a magazine at the back of the store and snapping her gum while listening to the music playing over the speakers. She heard the bell to the store chim a couple times but didn’t bother checking to see what came in. It was only the afternoon so it wasn’t that busy she kept checking the clock that hung from the wall, her lunch break was coming up and she was going to meet some friends down by the beach. There was this great diner, Fat Jack’s, that became their hangout ever since high school, and by now they knew each other by name and knew what they wanted, even that they always sat in the corner booth by the window.

“Excuse me ma’am could you tell me about this album.” A man’s voice said snapping her out of her stare.
She turned her head quickly “hmm,” she said quickly analyzing the scene and looking down at the album cover “Buddha and the Chocolate Box?” she smirked “Not really my cup of tea dude. But, I could play it over the speakers if you want to check it out.”
The man seemed to be distracted by something and that’s when she noticed the two Montez henchman talking to Al. It was the 20th, Extortion day. Shit.

Julius was having trouble focusing on his work. He hadn't told anybody about his cancer yet, and didn't intend to until and unless it became relevant. He was still more than fit enough to keep up. But a little while ago he had seen a car park in front of the record store next door. A certain car that filled him with a sense of dread and shame. It wasn't necessarily the same car that had parked outside of his old restaurant the day he had nearly been killed, but it was the same model. No, the told himself, there must be hundreds of cars just like that one in the city. It was just a coincidence, surely. But still, it stuck in his mind and he kept glancing back at the store every few seconds as he worked. It didn't take long for this behavior to attract the attention of his supervisor.

"Sorry, I just thought I saw someone I know. You mind if I take five to go say hi?" he explained. After getting permission to take a short break, he strode towards the store, only barely conscious of the hammer he was still holding in his clenched fist.

Matt walked up to the Counter and approached the menacing thug. "Leave him alone he's had enough." He said to him. The thug turned to Matt, he couldn't have been more than twenty Five years old."What did you say to me? " He said. Matt looked back at the other two thugs they had now moved outside and were waiting for this third guy to get the money so they could leave. He then looked back to the thug at the register. "I said, looks like today is my lucky day. " With that he head butted the guy knocking him down. Matt then began to punch and hit the man. His friends were unaware of the situation he had gotten into. After a few seconds the thug was unconcious and Matt took what ever weapons he had on him at the time. It wasn't much just a 9mm with nine rounds in the clip. He stepped outside. One of the thugs finally looked back and saw Matt with the blood from their friend on his shirt. Matt ducked behind a nearby car and they opened fire in the parking lot.
