About the Characters
TouhouMUCK is home to two kinds of characters. Feature Characters (FCs) and Original Characters (OCs).
A Feature Character is one of the 100-plus girls created by ZUN and featured in one of the twelve core Touhou games or its various gaiden games. As there are so many available, FCs are heavily encouraged. The presence of familiar names will help Gensokyo feel like Gensokyo. As Feature Characters always tend to have established personalities and backgrounds, it is expected that their player will try to play within those lines. Features also come with a minor requirement to log in consistantly, or risk losing the character due to inactivity.
An Original Character is a character created entirely by their player. Due to the nature of an OC, granting its player full creative control, OCs will be more heavily regulated and more carefully considered in order to prevent abuse. Potential OCs should be very sure on their personality and background, so that they fit in well with the other characters on-grid. OCs which are not thought through in this way will not be approved.
Here at TouhouMUCK, a player is permitted a total of four characters. Two Features and two Originals. After a character is approved for play, there is a four week period where new alts will not be reviewed by staff. This is to allow you, the player, to acclimate yourself to your new character instead of overwhelming yourself with multiple alts all at once. Additionally, a player may sacrifice one of their OC slots in order to play a third FC, if they wish.
The more Features one plays, the harder it may become to keep the characters separate. We're operating on a trust system, here, but you are expected to avoid RPing with yourself. If you choose to play two or three Feature characters, you should keep alt-interaction in mind and try to pick characters that would have little reason to interact with one another.
* Players will not be allowed to play two characters from the same game at the same time.
Alts are tracked with an account tied to your player email. Alts can be added to one's account with the +account command. This tracks current alts and past alts.
