▶ Charades is like an AU but with different characters than the ones you usually play. Consider this area a 'try before you buy' kind of idea. Here's how it'll work.
▶ Everyone gets to create an OOC (out of character) account, much like we, the mods have our own accounts now. This account will be considered a "character" in terms of earning sovereigns. Except you don't have to apply to be accepted. Once you've created an OOC account, you get to try on new characters (play Charades) with them.
That said, OOC accounts will be limited to the Charades forum. They cannot be used for posting in the announcements or mod forums. This will help a bit with continuity, you won't be able to accidentally post with your OOC account in your regular RP threads.
▶ A Charade character does not need an application and does not get its own account. They cannot be Dragon Age canon characters, they must be original concepts.
▶ We'll have a sticky thread for a Who's Who of OOC accounts and their charade characters, as well as a place to post RP requests with those characters.
▶ For example:
Let's say I have a character concept for a Qunari but I don't want to commit to an application and I'm not sure that even if the character is accepted that I'll find plots for them, or even like playing them long term.
▶ If you've been playing with a Charade for a while and decide you'd like to make them an official Unbound character, then you can post and application for them and instead of writing up an RP sample, you can link to 6 recent (within two-three months) threads with that character instead.
▶ Essentially, with this OOC account you get to try out new characters, new concepts, characters you don't play very often and don't want the pressure of considering a full OC canon character for Unbound. So with this one account you could in theory play a multitude of small characters for 1 thread/plot, 5, 10 - it's up to you. You get to pick them up and drop them as often as you want.
Playing Charades guarantees people a few things:
▶ We'll have some RP plot concepts that are super simple - single sentence starters, music prompts, pick-up lines, and so on - that'll let people dive into a thread without having to plot anything ahead of time if you don't want to.
▶ We'll also have a specific template for OOC Charade posts, that let you use an image for your Charade face claim so that people can see who their writing for.
▶ You absolutely do not have to participate in Charades if you don't want to, this is not required and if you don't want to make an OOC account, don't. That said, we think it'll be a fun time and encourage you to try it out.
