So what's the purpose of this blog?
For people to submit art, writing, crafts, ect of their Fallout OCs!
Wasn't there already a group like this?
Yes! BestGhoulFriends filled the need for a blog to help connect people in this corner of the Fallout fandom for several months, and we all greatly appreciate the wonderful job they did! But unfortunately, the blog stopped being maintained and has now been deleted :( TheGhoulCrew was created to help take over that gap.
How many people run this blog?
It tends to fluctuate depending on how much time people have, but we currently have a few people currently joining efforts to keep the content flowing :D
I have an OC, but they're not a ghoul. Can I submit them?
Of course! While most of the OCs you'll see here are ghouls, we also accept any OC from the Fallout universe!
How can I submit my character?
A couple of ways! We tend to prefer if you post your character art/writing/etc on your own Tumblr, that way we can reblog it from you and give you notes! To send us the URL of your blog posts, just use our Submit Box!
You can also try tagging us or put @theghoulcrew in the body of your post, but Tumblr can sometimes be glitchy, so it's not a fullproof way.
What's the deal with the eldritch horror characters?
Some of the ghoulfriend peeps ended up creating them when discussing the Lovecraftian elements that are scattered throughout the Fallout world. Since there are several parts of Fallout that are heavily influenced by Lovecraft, it really seemed to make sense and fit. Why wouldn't a post-apocalyptic world bring out all the weird stuff, after all? They've become a welcome part of the community as much as the other OCs <3
Are you guys going to do any contests or any events like the Valentine's Day one the other blog did?
Maybe! We'll have to see. Setting that sort of thing up is tiresome when so many people get involved. It's definitely not out of the question, though! At this time, we do tend to run art commission giveaway contests every time we hit a 100 follower milestone, so make sure to watch out for those!
I have some NSFW art of one of my OCs. Can I submit it?
We would actually prefer you submit overtly NSFW content to The Irradiated Trash Bin (ages 18+ please) instead! That's a specifically NSFW blog. Sometimes slightly-NSFW stuff will be posted to TheGhoulCrew - it really depends on how extreme the content is. It's always tagged accordingly, just in case, though!
I submitted my character but I never saw it get posted/reblogged!
Tumblr isn't a flawless system by any means. Sometimes things get overlooked or lost in transit. Other times, we've just put the post in question in our queue to prevent spamming dashboards and it simply hasn't cycled around yet. If you're ever wondering if it made its way through, just send us an ask or submit and we'll let you know if we saw it :)
Is there any other way I can get involved in the Fallout OC community?
Certainly! We have a Wiki page that's currently in progress! Feel free to submit your character's profile to the page :D
Who did the art for the icon/background? Where can I find the full art? And whose characters are they?
The icon/website logo is by @vectober and depicts her ghoul character, Toby, and @monsterrpblog's ghoul character, Damon. The full piece can be found here.
The background image used on our Tumblr is by @railroad-blues and depicts her ghoul character, Avery, and @maggie-the-ghoul's ghoul character, Elliott. The full piece can be found here.
