Samuel Johnson; September 21, 2009

STREET x4:

I am using this influence to investigate the movement and sale of eskola. I am going to have my retainer do all of the meeting and instructing and when he does so her is going to either use written notes left at predetermined spots or wear a mask and try to disguise his voice. For the duration of this downtime he is to stay in cheap motels around the city. When he returns to his normal place he will take very roundabout routes and change cabs at least 5 times. He is to instruct gangs I have influence over to listen closely for any rumors or facts about eskola and investigate only as much as curiosity and possible desire for gaining money by participating in its sale would allow.

Influence Response:

You have your retainer arrange meetings and/or send messages with eskola dealers and visit drug houses, and get details on prices, and the details on how eskola is moving on the streets. There are a large number of independent dealers that are involved in its distribution, as well as a couple of gangs.

From your investigations it seems like dealers and gangs get their eskola from a number of criminal organizations - the Italians, Albanians, Russians, the Irish, etc. And it seems that their source of eskola is from the Hip Sing Tong, one of the large Chinese criminal organizations in the city. It seems that they also have a gang underneath their wing - the Flying Dragons - and there are rumors of their involvement in distribution.

UNDERWORLD x5:

x4 Follow Ander

x4 (I have 4 from Steal right?) "gain control of a single crime ring."

I would like to instruct my underworld contacts to buy up as much of the eskola trade as they can. After they get as much control of it as they can I want them to report to me all the names of shippers, street sellers and other distributors as well as drop-off points that they know. I also want them to use their new position of monopoly or close to it to drive the prices way up, the ability to do so will be part of why I'll tell them buying up the trade will be profitable to them. If they don't know who to look for to gain access to the trade of eskola I'll tell them to investigate NJ drug smuggling and talk to my retainer.

Influence Response:

The only Eeskola that's being brought into the city is all controlled by the group that's bringing it in, and they are as elusive as ever. You're able to acquire some information from some fringe groups of the families, and thus buy up a large amount of eskola from these contacts, but you aren't able to penetrate into any sort of deeper control on the whole of the market.

According to your contacts, those in charge of the eskola ring come to YOU, not the other way around. The arrangements between the sellers and buyers has become sort of an exclusive club amongst the various large criminal organizations, and so it remains a daunting task to try and dislodge those who are in tight cahoots with the traders. Furthermore, the price for eskola is already rather high, having underwent a recent change in its marketing and is currently distributed at a number of high-profile clubs and bars.

That being said, you are able to drive up the price of eskola with your share of the market. The shipments are brought in by various persons - they change every month, and are careful to conceal their faces - and the product is dropped off at a number of local restaurants. You also acquire the names and faces of the criminals and gangs responsible for the distribution of eskola.

STREET x4:

I would like to instruct my street contacts to ask around among their connections about the people and places involved in the eskola trade. Any information received this way will be passed on to my underworld contacts through my retainer.

Influence Response:

You are able to find all the gangs and criminals that are responsible for the distribution of the drug in NYC, but not those that are shipping or producing the stuff.
