Ghouls are servants to a Domitor, a Master and specifically a Vampire. To
become a Ghoul one must feed from a Vampire three times on three successive
nights. When this happens, they become totally enthralled with their new
Master and would do anything, ANYTHING for them. Ghouls receive their
nourishment from their Master and it is from this nourishment that they are
able to use their disciplines. In order to replenish the blood pool within
a ghoul's body, you can be nourished by any vampire player, or behead a
vampiric enemy after they have dropped into torpor.
Ghouls learn Disciplines in the same manner that Vampires do. Freebies
must be spent to increase Disciplines, albeit the cost is slightly higher as
a ghoul's blood is not quite as potent as a full vampire's. A ghoul's
domitor determines a ghoul's clan Disciplines. The ghoul will have the
same Clan Discipines as her original Domitor. Every ghoul begins play with
Potence 1 as a result of the ghouling process.
One of the biggest benefits to being a ghoul is the ability to move about in
the sunlight unhindered and taking no damage. However, there are a few drawbacks
as well, for being a ghoul has a lower potential for overall strength and
ability than becoming a full fledged vampire. You may not learn any Discipline
to a level higher than 3. While you can use any vampiric abilities such as
regenerating your body or using bloodbuff, the only way you can replenish your
blood supply is from a vampiric source. Ghouls are recommended for players
who wish for a bit of a challenge while still retaining some of the benefits
of being a vampire.
Once you have become a ghoul, you are no longer eligible to remort as a Garou
or be Awakened as a Mage. However, you can still be embraced as a full vampire.
To become a ghoul you must first find a domitor of the clan you wish to
become a ghoul in service of. You will need to feed from the potential
domitor a total of three times to go through the process. Ensure that both
yourself and your domitor are in (IC) mode.
