What's up everyone? I hope you're all doing well. 

The past couple of weeks, I've been re-journeying through Red Dead Redemption 2 and Online. Firstly, what an incredible story Rockstar presented with Red Dead Redemption II! While I wasn't thrilled with the story in Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption II far exceeded my expectations. 🤠

I'm from England, the United Kingdom, and I'm in my late twenties, which means I would be close to retirement if I were a professional sports player, maybe I should have made that assessment as a child 🤔 😄

It's safe to say that Rockstar has always been a staple of the video game industry, wouldn't you agree. While Grand Theft Auto is their main title, Red Dead Redemption should not be overlooked by any means. In 2010, I played Red Dead Redemption and loved not only the story, but also the online experience. As an 'OG' of GTA Online, I have spent countless hours running and running with crews and clubs - but I would go so far as to say that Red Dead Redemption's original Online feature had a greater impact on the evolution of GTA Online that the online experience offered in GTA IV. 

On GTA Online, I ran crews as well as with, and I am currently the Sergeant for a rather defunct super part-time club. There is no doubt that times change, and Covid was a big part of that change- we had a very good run over that period, reminiscent of the very early days, but times do change. 

I also ran a crew on the original Red Dead Redemption, but the lines were a lot more blurry and we struggled to make things more sophisticated. Here's some information about it: https://reddead.fandom.com/wiki/Posse:The_Wolfpack

Having just begun a re-journey through Red Dead Redemption II and Red Dead Online, I have joined this forum. In Red Dead Online, I recently rebuilt my character. Once I created what I felt was the most accurate representation of myself in a rockstar game, but when I revisited the title I wanted to create a Native American character to change my experience. He is known as Puhihwikwasu'u, which means 'Iron Jacket' in the Comanche language.

The name comes from the great grandfather of th last Comanche chief Quanah Parker, however, his not a direct copy just more of a inspiration. I saw so much hate and disgruntlment around those who have Native American characters and decided that the backstory for my character would be more fictional, so I can merge elements from different tribes, in the same way Rockstar did with the Wapiti tribe. 

I hope I can reveal more about that tribe eventually, as it strives to be the crew on Red Dead Online, even though I'm still very early in the journey of my character. It's probably a little down the road since there are so many details to iron out. But if you're interested, please feel free to message me. 


Thank you so much for reading this post, and I hope to see you around.
