The April Fools 2k5 event began April 1, 2005 directly after Easter 2k5 with a manga update.

OverviewEdit

Before and after April Fools 2005, there was a major plot event. In the beginning, Gambino appeared at the base of his blown-up mansion, asking for donations to bring it back. Then the "mansion" became a tower, and the tower grew and grew until it had three maps to itself, not including the base on the Isle de Gambino. The finishing touch was the old Gambino mansion and G CORP logo on top of the extremely tall tower. Cindy Donovinh reported on its construction. In response, the Von Helson Sisters began to sell Anti-Gambino Picket Signs for 500 gold outside their Durem mansion. Gambino reappeared at the top of his mansion, more egotistical than ever and somewhat insane. Those who donated during the Donation Drive received one free Anti-Von Helson Picket Sign. Those who had not donated could buy one for 1000 gold. As Gambino continued his maniacal power trip on top of his tower, Gino connected the crazed evil exhibited by Gambino with the father he had known, regaining his memory. Gino's recognition snapped Gambino back to reality, and the two ran to each other, arms outstretched. Just before they hugged, a shot rang out. Gambino had been shot by a sniper in Durem, who is still of unknown origin. In shock, Gambino fell off of his tower and into the sea, bouncing off of the side of the tower on the way down. Gambino's tower fell with him, revealing new maps (Barton Coast, Great Wall of Gambino, and Durem Reclamation Hub), but many of the maps from Durem to the Isle were clouded with dust. The top of the tower also smashed directly into the Von Helson mansion. The dust took a week to clear. When it did, it was revealed that the fall of the tower was likely planned, as there was a new Gambino mansion on the Isle and a second one which took the place of the Von Helson mansion.[1]

This is Cindy Donovinh reporting for GAIA 9 Action News.

Newflash! Gambino has finally emerged from his mansion and appears to be going mad!

It seems that the current events such as his son losing his memory, coupled with his aspirations of revolution, and his recent regaining of his riches have driven him off the deep end!

Please tune in on Friday at 3PM PST for a special report on these latest developments!

See you there!

This is Cindy Donovinh reporting for GAIA 9 Action News!

For those of you just tuning in, Johnny K. Gambino(formerly GAIA's most powerful man) has regained his riches and built a massive skyscraper on Gambino island! It is believed that Gambino supporters donated a massive amount of gold to his cause which he then used to complete this gargantuan feat of architecture. For over a week, Gambino has locked himself in his mansion, only to reappear to combat the Von Helson sister's Easter Eggstravaganza. He is currently atop his tower and appears to have gone insane! We now go live to the scene with the following report!

Tower Crash Aftermath

This is Cindy Donovinh reporting for GAIA 9 Action News.

Breaking news! In the aftermath of the destruction of both the Tower of Gambino and the Von Helson mansion, the gigantic cloud of smoke has finally cleared and officials have discovered a startling find!

It appears that there are now TWO Gambino mansions-- one in the Isle de Gambino and one in DUREM!!

It is pure speculation at this point, but could the tower of Gambino merely have been an elaborate device to surplant the Gambino mansion on top of the Von Helson mansion?

Seeming as how both the Gambino family and the Von Helsons are missing and presumed dead, will we ever discover the truth behind these evil machinations of a mad man? It's anyone's guess as to what could have happened here.
