Some words from player of Jailhouse Life RaeRae {63359} on what is has been like leading a gang in JailHouseLife on the Myspace application.

I am the president of The-Elite gang on Jailhouselife Myspace.

Since starting this gang, I have learned quite a few things. You must have plenty of money, and I mean Billions, not millions. It’s very helpful to be a donator as there are many “perks”. You have to know how to build your gang’s armory. THIS takes money or points. You must choose which weapons would be best for the gang you are building. Cheaper, less harmful weapons would be better for a Training gang considering you will have low level players who are still learning to play the game. Also, GED books are a must for a training gang. They take off one day each of your classes. Morphine and toothpaste are extremely important because the “little guys” are going to be a target for sure.

An RPG application on MySpace where you are behind bars, fighting for respect and power among your fellow prisoners.

Now, building a main gang is a bit different. You WILL need points! This is another reason to take advantage of being a donator and spending a bit on the “weekend specials”. I would only accept players that have already finished their schooling as to save the gang money. Also, you want to accept “heavy hitters” (which you wont know until you give them a chance). Give them a couple of weeks, and if it isnt working out, kick them. Your gang armory should be a bit different also. You need heavy duty weapons as your members will be ready to attack stronger players. I believe in having a fully stocked armory to give out weapons as needed to players that are actually using them.

There is always the problem of trust in any gang. It has to be earned. You will sometimes learn this the hard way. You also need to remember that whatever age you are, there is always someone older or younger than you, therefore a huge maturity difference in most cases. If you have a member who applies and is accepted, then leaves after taking all that you give them, there’s your first lesson. There will be scammers. Most of us look out for each other when it comes to that. If you come across one, do other gangs a favor and pass along the information.

Coming to the forums is a great way to learn tricks and tips to the game or to ask questions. Ask staff questions anytime you need. There is no stupid question.

Most of all, remember this is a game and it is here for us all to have fun!
