The Ghouls of London - OOC


Unlike the original story (Tokyo Ghoul), this one will pass in London, which is divided similarly to how Tokyo is. Divided into several districts, namely the City of London, Greenwich, South Bank...

"Ghouls are without a doubt the greatest evil, created only to devour mankind. Their lives depend on the act of killing; if they do not eat, they suffocate and eventually die. This plague that has been terrorizing us is at a decline. Several years ago, a Japanese and a German scientist worked together to create a weapon to defeat humanity’s natural enemy: the quinque. This is a weapon forged from a ghoul’s predatory organ, [url=tokyoghoul.wikia.com/wiki/Kagune]the kagune[/url]. Even today, the CCG (Commission of Counter Ghoul) and its investigators wage their war on the ghouls of their city."

Ghouls are human-like beings that live alongside humans. The greatest difference between the two is that ghouls can only be nourished with man-meat. Anything else (with the exception of coffee and water) tastes horrible and if they digest it, they get sick and get substantially weaker. Aside from being stronger, faster and much more durable than humans, the ghouls have a predatory organ which is stored in a sack like organ called a kakuhou. The kagune (predatory organ) is kept in the body in the form of ‘RC cells’, which is found in liquid form. When the ghoul forms his or her kagune, the RC cells escape from the kakuhou, forming the kagune with the flow of the liquid yet the hardness of steel. Using the RC cells leads to the activation of the kakugan-the turning of the eye’s white to black and the pupil to red-, though it can be activated at will or even when the ghoul becomes excited and simply wants to use his or her power. There are several types of kagune:
Ukaku
Ukaku users’ kakuhou are found on the shoulder areas, the kagune usually spreading like wings. The lightweight ukaku bestows upon the user agility and speed that the other kagune simply cannot. It’s well-suited for both long and short-distance combat. With it’s overwhelming speed, the ukaku can finish a fight quite quickly.
The one problem is that releasing RC cells takes too much stamina so they lose the advantage quickly if the fight drags on for too long.

Koukaku
Koukaku is a kagune released from below the shoulder blade, taking a metallic form. The kagune’s RC cells are bound together tightly, making it heavy yet durable as well as quite powerful. It’s speed is inferior to all other kagune but it’s durability is far superior. It can take the shape of shields or perhaps even part-armor when on the defensive and the shape of a sword, spike or other melee weapons.
It is somewhat hard to use.

Rinkaku
The rinkaku is a kagune released from behind the waist. It’s shaped like scaled tentacles with the greatest brute strength, enough to smash through a koukaku’s shield after a certain amount of blows. Though the kagune itself is quite brittle and easy to damage but its regenerative abilities allows it to reconstruct itself quickly. It has a more liquified state than the other kagune.


Bikaku
The bikaku is the most tricky one to deal with as it has no specific weaknesses like the other kagune. It comes out of the tailbone and, as one could guess, has the shape of a tail. It has decent offense, defense and speed, as well as capable of medium to short range combat.

-----

Kakuja
A kakuja is a ghoul whose attains an additional armor like kagune that increases the defensive ability, speed, strength and regeneration as a result of extreme cannibalization. After consuming perhaps hundreds of ghouls, the ghoul becomes a half-kakuja, sometimes unable to control himself/herself. The ghoul builds up RC cells by cannibalizing, which leads to this mutation.


Danger Rating
  • C: A rank given to weak ghouls, mostly average or below average ones.
  • B: Slightly stronger than C ranks, though still not big threats.
  • A: These ghouls are troublesome as they’re quite powerful, definitely stronger than an average investigator.
  • S: Extremely dangerous, these ghouls can only be taken on by exceptional First Class investigators or higher.
  • SS: These are the equals of most Special Class investigators, though some surpass even these powerful ghouls.
  • SSS: The greatest ghouls, almost impossible to take down. These ghouls tend to be kakuja ghouls.



The CCG is an organization with "ghoul investigators" working for them. These ghoul investigators tend to have well trained bodies and are much stronger and adept in combat than normal humans. The weapons they use are made of the kagune of ghouls. These weapons are called "Quinque":
A quinque’s properties are based on the type of kagune it was forged from, and is carried in the form of a suitcase or a bag. A koukaku quinque would be heavy and strong, usually made into big blades, shields or axes. An ukaku quinque is light and also suitable for long distance combat. A rinkaku is brutally powerful yet brittle, and again, bikaku has no weaknesses or strengths that stand out. A quinque can keep its "kagune" form.

Ranks
  1. 3rd Rank Investigator: Investigators that haven’t attended the CCG academy, these investigators’ strength can vary quite a bit. These investigators aren’t given quinque.
  2. (allowed to start)
  3. 2nd Rank Investigator: Either investigators who graduated from the CCG academy or those who were promoted. Being a 2nd Rank investigator doesn’t show strength since anyone who simply graduates becomes one.
  4. (allowed to start)
  5. 1st Rank Investigator: These investigators tend to be quite powerful and have mastered the use of their quinque quite well.
  6. First-Class Investigator: First-Class investigators are usually paired with either 2nd Rank or 1st Rank investigators to mentor them. They themselves have great prowess in combat.
  7. Associate Special-Class Investigator: Some of the greatest fighters in the CCG, Associate Special-Classes are just one step below the most fearsome warriors…
  8. Special-Class Investigator: Investigators feared by even the strongest ghouls, Special-Classes’ names are infamous even among CCG members from other countries and the ghouls.

Significant Organizations
  1. CCG: The ghoul investigators. They have bases in every district, though their main headquarters are in the City of London.
  2. Mugg’o’Jo: A pleasant ghoul owned coffee shop at the South Bank. The owner of the coffee shop, a middle aged man named Joseph, manages the district and takes care of ghouls who ask for shelter. There have been no investigations or suspicions concerning the coffee shop.
  3. Ghoul Restaurant: The owner of this venue is unknown; what is known is that it’s a rather festive place for more sadistic ghouls.
  4. House of Pallid: This aggressive organization has had much activity in Greenwich, slaughtering the investigators there. Their leaders are unknown to all, as well as their motives, even the majority of the members.
  5. ????: ????
  6. ????: ????

Rules
  1. No OOC in the RP thread.
  2. No Metagaming.
  3. No Powergaming.
  4. No swearing OOC.
  5. Write "Lost World" somewhere in the app so that I know you read the rules.
  6. No sexually explicit acts. Keep this PG-13.
  7. Violence shouldn’t be too explicit. So don’t carefully describe how you eat someone, alright?
  8. Romance is encouraged but make it realistic if you're gonna start something.
  9. Do not ARGUE with GMs. If you have an issue, PM me but do not persist on something if a GM has already given you an answer.
