Current Apologies to all writing partners both current & prospective. Been sick for two weeks straight (and have to go to work regardless). No energy. Can't think straight. Taking a hiatus. Sorry again.

"Well EXCUUUUSE ME if my RPs don't have plot, setting, characters, any artistry of language like imagery/symbolism, or any of the things half-decent fiction has! What am I supposed to do, improve?!"

Where's the personality? The flavor? the drama? The struggle? The humanity? The texture of the time and the place in which this conversation is happening? In a word: where's the story?

not really? it's more so because an interest check needs more to hook people than: "Hello who are you?" "I'm [name1]." "Nice to mee you [name1], I'm [name2]." tinyurl.com/yc7wezxb

A point I can compromise on, as I've experience with it, most certainly; it simply isn't a primary or even tertiary reason why I RP.

Also, most of the characters in the prompts currently up are underaged, so there's that side of things.
I hope this goes well, having just played Bloodlines and experiencing the good parts of it before YouTubing the terrible second half. Really appreciate anybody willing to pick up some unconventional VtM storytelling.

Also, this. Probably my favorite bit of the whole prompt; welcome back from your hiatus, and nice first post upon landing.

Heyyyy I remember you. You were one of like 8 people who never heard from me again one day lol

I hope you didn't think it was personal, or a matter of taste or anything. I kinda withdrew from the world and forgot about the existence of hobbies and work-life balance and joy and reasons to live for a while.

If you're still looking for edgy gothpunk things like that (and you think we can negotiate on some of the points where our styles diverge) then hit me up; if not, no hard feelings because I totally get it. And best wishes either way, my friend
Hello. After dipping from the Guild for two years because I was hopping around between dead-end minimum-wage jobs while on COVID-induced fever dreams and forgot this site existed (lol oopsie), I'm back seeking long-term partners. I'm primarily looking for vampire stuff, but really any Gothic Fiction stuff is feasible. We can create something original within the conventions of the genre, or we can play in the Vampire: the Masquerade setting. Up to you.
About Me
  • 29 years old. EST. Crippling unmedicated ADHD that makes it hard to post sometimes (unless we do this thing on Discord, which I check daily).
  • Advanced-level grammar, spelling, and hopefully style. Casual to Advanced-level post length, depending on the needs of the scene. I've been doing this for sixteen years and counting, so hopefully I know what I'm doing by now. Mostly. Somewhat. A little. At all.
  • I only play original characters, in non-fandom game settings. Not interested in writing fanfiction about that show you like. Sorry.
  • Similarly, if you've ever loved romance RP but dreaded having to write awkward sex scenes with an uncomfortably enthusiastic partner, you've found the right guy. I am thoroughly uninterested in roleplaying sex, as I am perfectly satisfied with my real-life, flesh-and-blood sex life and therefore do not need to experience it vicariously through my characters. You can rest easy knowing I'm not noodling my gummy worm during our rp sessions!
  • Normally I'm only interested in M/F romantic pairings (not yet comfortable with my skill level in relating to and depicting other pairings in a way which is simultaneously realistic, respectful, and compelling), but owing to vampires' unique nature as distinctly asexual creatures who imitate sex and charisma in order to prey upon gullible humans, this time I'm honestly good with whatever!
  • Worldbuilding, character writing, and the art of a story in general are extremely important to me. I want our game to be not just unique from every other vampire thing but also immersive, intriguing, and compelling.
  • I've been Storytelling in the Vampire: the Masquerade V5 metaplot for about three years. I'm no master, but I'm slowly-yet-surely acquainting myself with the lore. I've played Bloodlines and Coteries of New York as well.
  • If we go with V:tM as our setting, I'm cool with rolling up character sheets and having dice at the ready, or with going rules-lite. Either is fine.
  • Totally down to hear your ideas, incorporate your input, and approach our story as a collaboration instead of a GM-player dynamic.
  • 100% capable of "doubling" and playing NPC casts. I like to think I've become quite good at making them feel engaging and real.
  • I'm cool with going with one of my ideas, going with one of yours, or blending and fusing elements from both.
  • I want to hurt our characters, but I don't want to hurt you. I respect all content boundaries, communicate consent before especially touchy scenes, and want us to feel safe expressing needs and wants with each other. It should go without saying that my game spaces are LGBT+/non-cis/POC-friendly as well. I hope you'll let me know if you feel uncomfortable with a scene, if you wanna change elements within the story, etc.
  • I'm looking forward to writing with you.

About You, My Ideal Partner
  • 21+. Cool with violence and guts and stuff, of course, but also a little more familiar than the average RPer with more nuanced, adult storytelling.
  • Willing to fade-to-black preceding explicit sexual content, because there's terabyte after terabyte of free porn on the internet and you know how to find it all by yourself when "the need" "arises."
  • You know the difference between M-rated content (violence, sex, torture, gore) and actual mature themes, and are comfortable with the former and skilled with the latter. You're capable of providing, and willing to provide, thoughtful, introspective, adult storytelling to our game, with nuanced, imperfect, but compelling characters. See bullet #1.
  • You are an active storyteller, not a passive one. You do not merely reply to my posts but yourself contribute to the worldbuilding, the character development (including advancing our characters' relationship), and the plot.
  • In regards to grammar, spelling, syntax, and style, you're at least solidly on the Casual spectrum somewhere. I don't really care about post length but please be kinda good at the whole writing thing. This point is flexible if you're ESL (English as a Second Language).

About My RP Ideas, Which I've Assembled into Half-Assed Plot Synopses
I'm good with playing either character in each pairing.

I have more (particularly for Vegas & NOLA), but writing this has taken too long so I'll just post now and edit other plot hooks in later.

Please send a PM if interested. Hoping to hear from you soon.
Man, I dunno whether to be flattered or sad. 😭

I hope you'll reconsider, but all the best to you regardless.

let me know if it sucks ass lmao @princess@Tae
Don't worry: I noticed.

I'll use my discretion. Thank you.
I'm okay spending a few posts alone to do some character writing, but yes, thank God for the railroad. I can 100% work with the logistics of what I wanted to do in the north.

Might have the application ready as soon as this evening.
@princess Sure. Ignoring the strait for convenience's sake, how long would it take to walk, say, from Kolonivka to Montauppe? What kind of a land scale are we looking at here? I was thinking of placing the prison where it would be cold, alienated, and inaccessible (ie. near Kolonivka); but not if it'll take me three months IC to hit the scene lol

Is there an established, canonical lore I should be reading up on and strictly adhering to on when I'm invited to the Discord, or are we free to worldbuild?

In the same vein as the previous question, when was the last time this setting was embroiled in total war, or any conflict large enough to upheave power structures, borders, etc.? Anything you can tell me about that conflict, such as numbers, factions, results, famous battles, etc.?

Here in the OOC tab, one GM post says this is a pre-industrial society, while another GM post declares this universe has developed steam ships, dirigibles, trains, etc. Which of these is accurate? If we were to look at firearms as a microcosm of the technological epoch, are people using flintlocks? Percussion caps? Matchlocks? Earlier, or even no firearms at all?

That's what I've got for now.
With the RP starting, we are closing applications to any new royals. If you have discussed making a royal with us before this post, but are still working on a character sheet you're good still. Any potential newcomers, however, are still allowed to apply, though only nobles and servant positions are open. That being said, secret royals are still a possibility. What I mean by this is your character is either a noble or a servant, but they don't know that they are actually royalty. Hopefully that makes sense.

Hi. In the mere snippets of interim I've got between work, domestic life, and being both a player and a Storyteller to several Vampire: the Masquerade games, I've been reading what I can of the story so far. Lovely stuff. I'm interested in joining, but only of course if newcomers are still welcome this late into the game.

My character's concept would go so far as to explain why he's so late to the revelries: before the events of the story he was court-martialed for murdering a fellow Varian captain in a duel, and has only now served the entirety of his six-year sentence. Once released, all he has to his name are the clothes on his back; the same sword, quenched in the heart-blood of several enemies; a heart of his own, now consumed with vengeance and loathing; and the names of the men who "did this to him" (which might or might not include player-characters, if others are interested). A fundamentally Byronic character filled, paradoxically, with self-hatred yet with unflappable pride; a dangerous, beastly intelligence, yet impudent recklessness.

I hope to hear from you soon as to whether such a presence would be incompatible with your vision, whether you have ample players already, whatever the case. Thank you.
There are mages in the World of Darkness yall

Will this game be set in the Modern Nights? Do you want ancilla/elders, fledglings, or a mix of the two?
