It used to be a nice city. Sure, it had its problems... but no more than anywhere else. The constant tug-of-war between the Winters and Denards had, for the most part, managed to leave the civilians undisturbed. Crime rates have always been high, but that just made it the perfect place to start a business... especially an illegal one.
But now? The Cartel has turned the Windy City into one of constant gang warfare. The south side has become an almost unlivable red zone where gunshots can be heard at all hours of the day and night. Local government has been infiltrated, and it's impossible to know who you can trust. Independent criminals are pledging allegiance to the Cartel en masse, whereas others get their bodies dumped in the streets. While the Denards and Winters are dealing with family turmoil, the beloved city they have worked so hard at holding in their grip is quickly slipping through their clenched fists.
Whose side will you choose? Will you be one of the conquerors, or one of the conquered?
Welcome to Chicago, comrade. We've been waiting.
UPDATE: One of the city's major crime factions has lost their leader! Sebastien Denard, head of the city's biggest and boldest family of assassin's, was murdered. Will his son take over? Will the Mafia take advantage of the situation? Will the Cartel finish the rest of the family off? It's up to you what happens next!
