Default How many IN gamers are goths?

If you game In Nomine, do you consider yourself to be a goth in real life? Do you also play Vampire or Werewolf? Is your closet primarily black?

Ah, those were the days. Back when we sacked Rome and--

No, wait, wrong kind of goth.

My wardrobe is largely black, but that's mostly because that way it doesn't clash with whatever color my hair is this month. I wouldn't know how to goth if I had an instruction manual, much less on my own. I'm not entirely sure what that has to do with In Nomine, but as long as you're asking about In Nomine players who are also goths... That would not be me! (I'm also slightly confused. Consider yourself to be a goth in real life? Do some people simply roleplay goths when they're not? Now I'm trying to picture a goth Cherub. It's not working very well.)

Though I would rather like to sack a city, some day. Sounds like fun.

A Goth Malakite could work quite well though.

I am the anti-goth.
No matter how much black I wear, no matter how pallid my skin, I always give off an "Aesthetic? What's that?" vibe.

The World of Darkness doesn't really work for me; I'm not much for angst in my gaming. I'm more into cheerfully ruthless pragmatism.

I'm not a goth.

I own Vampire and Werewolf, played Vampire a long time ago.

My closet is about a third black, a third white, and a third visible spectrum.

Plenty of emotional trauma etc... but who doesn't get that? Nope, no Gothness here. Most goth gamers I know are World of Darkness players, and that's fine for the angsty, dark games that a lot of people like. Having said that, I have seen (or at least heard of) cheerful WW gaming groups!

My wardrobe has black in it, because I look good in neutral colours. Black, white, grey, subdued colours (blues, greens, brown, in natural tones mostly).

Everything in the spectrum really, including the fabled dirt wavelength of the spectrum, provided it's not bright or stains easily :)

I know a lot of people who wear a lot of black, but mostly (again) because it looks good.

I think servitors of Gabriel would make good goths, particularly Mercurians - who fit into the social circle to help people and prevent them doing harm to themselves. That and servitors of Beleth.

(Kidding)

Not a goth, but I sure can dress up like one! Sometimes enjoy the music, have gone to the clubs, plenty of gothy friends. But I like lots of non-gothy, and even non-geeky, stuff too. I've played many of the WW games (incl. Vampire, Werewolf, and Mage), but I play lots of other stuff too.

Just part of the broad spectrum of things...

I like the music and clothes a lot, but could never pull off the look. What's more, goth culture can be awfully shallow and can encourage people to revel in their problems. So, it's a nice place to visit, etc. Still loves me some Bauhaus and Siouxsie, though.

Well, the majority of my wardrobe is black, but that's not due to gothiness, but simply because I like black. It's simple, I don't have to worry about whether the orange shirt goes with the purple socks, and a lot of the snarkiest T-shirts come in black.

I have never played Vampire or Werewolf, and I don't intend to unless one of my friends provides me with a very compelling reason(like, say, an AK-47 pointed at my head).

And I would say I'm not a goth. Been there, done that, have the notebooks of pathetic poetry to prove it. Now I'm just me, and I like that a lot better.

Well, of the IN players I've played in person with... or even seen, for that matter....

Hm. Out of around 30, there's one who screams "Goth" to me, and all the rest, not so much. Pity. Maybe the IN jewelry would have sold better if we had more goths.
