It was late in the evening when Great Grandfather Lloyd summoned his family. They met him in his temple, where he spoke to them. 'Dear family, last night I had a vision and I must share it with you.'
'I found a magic lamp. It didn't contain 1, but 5 extraordinarily beautiful virgin genies. But that is not the reason I summoned you here. After that first vision, I had a second one.'
Cue second flashback
'I was alone, all by myself. The last remaining Yakuza. Something, or someone had put a stop to our criminal organisation/lovely family. Surely this can not be our future. Therefor I have summoned you all to come here. You are not allowed to leave this temple until we rid ourselves from this evil force.'
Great Grandfather Lloyd left the room and his family. All sorts of thoughts were running through their heads:
Has he finally lost his marbles?
How can I do business when I'm locked up in a temple?
Who or what is trying to ruin our Yakuza family?
Who will feed my fishes during my stay here?
Welcome to Yakuza Family the C&D topic.
As we speak I am sending out the pm's to those who get to participate in this game.
I want to thank everyone who signed up.
