Title: But what about the Ghouls ?
Post by: Highwayman667 on May 20, 2019, 01:18:58 am
We knew her, we loved her... and we want more damnit.

So what about ghouls ? How will they be represented within the game ? Will we even have the feature given the controversial claims that derived from the first game ?

For my part I think we all want the same things when it comes to ghouls: more options and choices, maybe a way to treat them differently, have them perform tasks or even play as them in certain sections, like a friend suggested me once.

We're monsters, so I would like a wealth of options from killing them to having them as "pets" to even using them for financial gain (investment banker, stock broker, etc.) or for combat (ex-special forces and such). Any "unethical treatment" of them is just par for the course and if we don't have the option to "abuse" them, then it's neutering Vampire the Masquerade significantly.

In the L.A. By Night tabletop campaign run by Jason Carl from White Wolf, there is a particular ghoul lady who is quite the badass, serving as a skilled driver and fighter for the Kindred coterie on occasions, whether in fights with them or off on her own.

If he didn't have a fail state we could've had Mercurio in BL2 ! Another great ghoul.

Hmm, have they announced that characters with potential deaths won't be in Bloodlines 2? If not, it's still possible for him to make an appearance. I'd prefer they let characters return whom you could kill, though. Otherwise it would be impossible to see Yukie again. D':

Not I. It would take quite a dick to kill her. I didn't consider it until just recently, but I think she's my favorite human in Bloodlines. =p

It's also kinda fun having a non-ghoul human who knows what I am and doesn't want to kill me or run away screaming. ^^

Too bad, I guess that rules out sex unless we get something like 9 humanity while full vampires.  I hope the game lets us do that.  lol

I hope we get more than one option to suit a wider array of characters. And, yes, that we are able to be either nice or mean to them.

Tbh, I always found the relationship with Heather unhealthy, she is a real mouse and totally dependent of you. I mostly set her free very early, because I feel bad for taking advantage of her.
I would like a ghoul who is a bit more crafty and has more self esteem, like Mercurio or Knox. Someone like that. I don't care if it is a woman or a man. More than one option would be great though.

I felt guilty at first with Heather, but eventually I figured "Its a part of vampire life".

I don't know, honestly I felt bad for her. She has no friends or relatives, she is lost and confused in her life. The player must be like, despite the blood bound, the first human relation she did ever achieve. I have never freed her, that would be like the most devastating thing I could do to her. And I have always treated her as a friend (and with the greatest respect I can to compensate the blood bound)....


Fuck, playing as a baali in the Final Nights mod it was difficult being evil to her, I guess I'm not at all good at roleplaying evil characters LOL

Don't get me wrong, I love Heather, I just feel, that she wouldn't do well in the long term in vampiric society. And of course, she became a ghoul by accident, maybe in the next game, we can actually ghoul someone, who fits the personality of the vampire, we're playing.

Hehe, and that is the darkest temptation in the pen and paper, from what I've seen. Players slip into doing some reeeeeally twisted shit, seeming to justify it with that just being how things should be as a vampire.

You were right. You're prolly a better roleplayer than I! Her people-killin' makes me all butt-hurt at her and I have a tendency to "accidentally" squeeze the trigger on my SPAS-15 while the barrel is right up against her tummy.

I can't imagine it being worse than being slaughtered by the sabbat :| ...

You know what would be nice ? A mod that would give us an epilogue with Heather if she managed to live through the campaign. Aaaaawwww.

Yeah, as Barabbah pointed out, its still around its just not updated with today's patch to work with today's machines.  I came very close to getting it to work but when it came time to move on to downtown, the cab never showed.  Just can't get that cab to show.  Not really sure why.

I can understand it from a gameplay perspective of giving her some reason to become a ghoul, but narratively, I agree with Highwayman that she would never really go for that. =p

Maybe, but while burgermeister's CQM is the greatest Bloodlines mod in my opinion, it does take a few too much liberties. Just remember the Sabbat quest line Domination or how he portrayed the Anarchs there, which made no sense to me whatever!

WOW my memory sucks because I have absolutely no recollection of it happening that way in CompMod.  LOL  Which is sad, because I was a beta tester for it a thousand years ago.

Hmm, Yukie waifu is good Yukie, though for some reason, I'm a hell of a purist with my games. The Unofficial Patch's Plus version is as different as I tend to be comfortable going with modifying stuff in games...especially when it comes to dialog and characters. =p

That was my thought too.  Clearly this is something I was pretty unaware of.  Makes me wish all the more I could get CompMod to work (yes I know this aspect is available as "CompMod Lite" with CQM but I REALLY want full CompMod to work, darn it).

That would be so awesome.  And MAYBE just MAYBE we could have more than one.  lol 

I am curious to see exactly HOW much freedom we will have in this game.  Could it be Bethesda Game level freedom?  That would be mighty interesting.  Probably not THAT free though as it sounds like this is going to be a very story intensive game so it will probably play a bit more like a good BioWare game than a Bethesda game, which is fine, but its interesting to speculate about.

I'm actually a bit scared. This might be a pointless thing but... the price tag concerns me.

I think the game costs 30 bucks now. Which is obviously a decent price but... how much features will this game to have to be on the level with the best of AAA games ?

The cheapest version is $59.99 for the basic game aka the "Standard Version".  Pretty standard even for an AAA title.  The "Unsanctioned Version" is $69.99 and the "Blood Moon Edition" is $89.99.

The cheapest version is $59.99 for the basic game aka the "Standard Version".  Pretty standard even for an AAA title.  The "Unsanctioned Version" is $69.99 and the "Blood Moon Edition" is $89.99.

Wuuuuuut ? I'm looking at the GOG version right now and it says $28.85

I am curious to see exactly HOW much freedom we will have in this game.  Could it be Bethesda Game level freedom?  That would be mighty interesting.  Probably not THAT free though as it sounds like this is going to be a very story intensive game so it will probably play a bit more like a good BioWare game than a Bethesda game, which is fine, but its interesting to speculate about.

I'm actually a bit scared. This might be a pointless thing but... the price tag concerns me.

I think the game costs 30 bucks now. Which is obviously a decent price but... how much features will this game to have to be on the level with the best of AAA games ?

Yeah, I just went to GOG myself and I'm finding the prices Zephyr is finding. Maybe it's measured on your end in whatever Peruvian currency you have, Highwayman? Super pesorupees.

If I could find that price I would hop on it right now.  lol  Sadly I cannot.  GOG is what I was looking at too.

Yeah there must be something up with the currency translator...or whatever they call it.  lol

That is very strange.  This is how it is for Americans:

When exactly did you obtain your GOG copy ? I can only guess that's a "seniority" discount since I bought my copy two years ago ?

Wesp ? Barabbah ? Anyone ?

I haven't obtained a copy just yet.  Those are the prices for when I decide to do so.

I meant when exactly did you get your BL1 copy, maybe there was a discount attached to that ? Can't really imagine though that they would just give you 50% discount for having a fifteen year old game.

Most probably regional pricing. GOG implemented this practice recently canceling another one of it's foundation principals. Till recently GOG paid the deference but with games like Bloodlines 2 this is no longer possible I suppose. In fact the price in Europe is the same as USA but in euros and I suppose for UK is the same but in pounds which makes UK users most fucked up.
