Ghoulage on Kingsmouth



  • I'm feeling particularly masochistic today, so I'm going to post this here. Have at it! Looking for a ghoul for my vampire on Kingsmouth for crushing, driving, lamentations, etc, so here's an OOC want ad:

    Me: Bloodsucking Viking/Lobster Boat Captain with a penchant for seduction, blood magic, foul-mouthed honesty, kindred-on-kindred violence, and building up the city's main docks into something to be proud of.

    You: A female with high status in one of the categories seen here. , who might have made the mistake of letting a big Viking galoot close enough to ghoul you.

    Player is very low-drama (OOCly), high-communication, low jealousy, and available 9-5pm EST, M-F. I'm looking for another player with similar hours, similar views on low-drama/communication/jealousy (this isn't a monogamous relationship, as he currently has a thrall, and has plans to get more ghouls), and who isn't solely dependent on me for all their RP. Someone who will go out into the community, have a good time rp'ing with whoever the hell you want, and be Clinton's eyes and ears in the community. You must be willing to learn and utilize the OSS system to help with building Clinton's empire on the docks. Willingness to join Clinton's cult as a ghoul is a plus, but by no means required. Interested? Page or @mail me in-game at cynage.com:7891 or look here for more information on my character. Thanks!

    Not really, Clinton is a good guy. He's cool.



  • I almost considered this because I am considering joining the game. However, I am not fond of sharing. Alas. I'll probably just be a normal mortal.


  • Coder

    @icanbeyourmuse Even if not a ghoul, his cult is open to mortals.



  • @Alzie :Unfortunately, it is not. Ghouls and Vamps of the Acolyte persuasion only, due to all the cruac bonii.

    @icanbeyourmuse : You're going to have some difficulty if you want a one-on-one vampire-to-ghoul thing, as most of the political players are looking for multiples. That said, I'll poke around if you want and see if I can find you anyone looking? Good luck!


  • Coder

    @Bristled-Thistle Oh, the post made it sound like mortals could join to for rewards.

    I think she can find a one-on-one thing. It doesn't have to be a political player. If she wants a political player, there are plenty that only want one ghoul.



  • Okay, I changed the ad so it wasn't so ambiguous. And you're right, she'll be able to find one. I was just offering help.



  • A friend /might/ be joining too. I'm not certain if he is. I'm not in any rush to make a ghoul since I'm only somewhat familiar with Vampires. The things I've heard so far makes it sound interesting and so far I've only heard good things about the game.

    Why are political players so intent on multiple ghouls on this particular game? (if I missed an obvious explanation earlier in the thread my apologies, I've only skimmed it)



  • @Arkandel Because unlike TR, there's no limit on PC ghouls, and every able body you have is able to work towards your political dominance, both on-screen and off. As ghouls have supernatural stuff but no sunlight-allergy, they have the most awake time per-day and are most able to do stuff like spy on other territories, trash other people's territories, figure out what problems there are in the territory, and even if they do absolutely nothing, the political player still gets his ghoul's status as his own to look better in the city. So other than having to deal with personal problems between multiple ghouls, it's all positive.



  • @icanbeyourmuse It's perfectly fine to make a mortal. I'd just suggest getting Status in one of those categories linked above, as it makes you very valuable to people, so if you want to become ghouls, you have your choice.

    @icanbeyourmuse

    It's HARD to impossible to get a one-on-one PC vamp/ghoul relationship on this game. It's like getting finding a unicorn, even if you are a kick ass player. I don't want you going on thinking it will be easy to do. It's a great game, but if you don't want to share with other PC ghouls then I would suggest making a vampire OR having one app in with you. This is one of the negatives if that's what you are looking for.



  • Yeah, that would certainly be your best bet. Make a vampire, then troll for one twue ghoul or fellow vamp or something if the one-on-one is most important to you. Obviously the power dynamic is different, but then you're not stuck in a situation where your domitor wants more ghouls and you're feeling hurt about it.



  • @Catsmeow Yeah, everything I've heard about the game is the multiple ghouls thing.

    @Bristled-Thistle Nah, I won't be hurt. I just don't like sharing. I won't go ghoul unless my friend CGs with me. OTherwise I'll just be a normal mortal.

    @icanbeyourmuse

    Also if you are going human and don't want to be forced to be a ghoul. Set your play style accordingly. It isn't exactly a consent game, so you can be forced into ghouldom.


  • Coder

    @icanbeyourmuse You could go in and ask for someone who's looking for a single ghoul. I don't have any PC ghouls, Julius Archer has no PC ghouls, Hal has no PC ghouls, Heather has no PC ghouls, Ovidio has no PC Ghouls, Durante has no PC ghouls, Jack has no PC Ghouls, Mortimer, Zed, Casper, Seth, Dallas...This list continues. Seriously though, there are plenty of players without ghouls. If you talked to them, I would be willing to bet they could agree to be a one ghoul show.

    @Catsmeow Or you could just tell people you don't want to be a ghoul. Even if you do pick support or political as a mortal, in my experience, unless you do something that forces you into a situation where the only outcome is ghouling or thralling, everyone will respect your decision to stay mortal.



  • @Catsmeow I'm not looking to cut off the possibility so I doubt I'll put the 'no ghouling' tag.

    @alzie I'm gonna stick with mortal for now. See where that goes. Unless my buddy CGs with me or I find someone I enjoy chatting with/is game for 1 ghoul while CGing.

    It is an undetermined time frame for when I CG/finish it. I am concept blanking lately.



  • Just make sure you pick the Civilian playtype, and you're good to go.


  • Pitcrew

    @Catsmeow man, if someone changed my Template without asking me, my boot would lodge so far up that ass, it'd require a new zip code.


  • Tutorialist

    And any thoughts I've had about playing there are now gone. I'm all for non-consent in the form of "consequences happen to actions", but you guys are making it seem like a mortal can be walking down the street minding their own business and suddenly get knocked over the head with a shovel and forceably ghouled.



  • @Cobaltasaurus I'm curious about that. It takes time to ghoul a mortal right? So is it a "It puts the lotion on its skin" scenario until they get to the point where the mortal is ghouled?
