In North-Eastern United States, a local group of street racers gather around for different events every Saturday evening at an abandoned gas station. Some of these locals have grown up around cars while others have recently started to get into them. During these meets some love to show of their personal work while others come to make a few extra dollars or a deed to their new dream car, yet they all seem to categorize themselves into groups. Things use to be simple; if you were into cars then you were welcomed by all but not anymore. Different opinions and hateful comments have caused "bad blood" between different crews as anger fills the atmosphere. Up until now, the anger only led to races filled with rage and sorrow. Recently a new group has arrived to the North-Eastern parts of the United States but have kept very quiet as they do not participate in the local meets or cruises. The locals grown very suspicious of this new crew which eventually got the name "Silent Shadows" due to their *Sleepers and their appearance only at night. Some of the locals have gone as far to say they were only out for the money, the cars and blood. Some say that they came from over seas in Russia while others say the are Japanese then the rest have no opinion. After their recent arrival, there has been an increase in accident that have been so fatal that the drivers die and the locals believe it's the Silent Shadows doing. Now one local, Lilian, has volunteerly took the step forward to get behind the mystery of this new group while trying to avoid death. With the determination to stop the bloodshed and bring back the peace she hits the roads to find out everything she can while visiting old and new crash sites. Lilian knows she can not do this on her own though. On a recent meeting that was organized for everyone, she steps onto a chair laying around and makes an announcement to all the crews that attended; "Everyone, please let me have your attention just for a moment. I know not all of you like what I drive but tonight we have to set our differences aside. Our own people, friends and family, are being killed one by one as if they were maggots. We need to put a stop to this or it will only get worse. If we don't stop this soon, one of us is sure to be next. I mean look at us, some of us who been here for years should remember the peace we had. It didn't matter what we drove, as long as we had a passion for cars, we all accepted each other. Now looks at us, we are killing each other. We must put a stop to this! Who's with me?" With barely a handful of people who agreed, the rest turned the backs and whispered. Now together they must put a stop to Silent Shadows all while trying to regain the peace... Rules (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Rules (open) Rules (close) 1.
