☆ Oglaf Wikia
What sort of character can I app here?
A character who is 16+, please. OCs are welcomed, as are CRAUs. CRAUs are capped at 6 per game transplant and we ask that you seek the permission of any cast you may be apping your CRAU into. Fandom OCs will be considered on a case by case basis.
Only 2 duplicates of any given character are allowed.
What are the Activity Check requirements?
Activity is 10 comments a month, posted by you. Failure to make AC requires double the amount on the following month. If you fail to clear AC twice in a row, you will be removed from the game and will need to re-app.
Failing to make AC means any coins your character earned over the month are void.
What are coins?
Coins the currency here. It can be earned on a monthly basis according to quests the mods set for each character group. Different quests earn a different amount of coins, you can have your character complete more than one quest. Coins can be tallied when AC is tallied and validated at the end of each month, the fresh set of quests will be posted each month.
We ask that players keep their characters IC when having them complete set quests. More information about coins can be found here.
Can I hiatus?
Of course! So long as you go through the official mod channels, your hiatus will exclude you from having to check in for AC. You may still claim coins in this period.
We ask that you keep your hiatus under 4 weeks, a hiatus over a month long is not permitted.
Do you have HMDs?
Yes. Monthly and mandatory. We want to keep channels of communication wiiiiide open.
Do you allow challenge apps?
Not at this time, sorry!
Can I age my character up to 16 to app them?
No. At this time we will only be accepting characters who are 16 and over in canon.
Can I app from Oglaf?
Maybe! We ask that you drop us a line before you consider a character. We may have an event pre-planned with certain characters.
Can I app multiple characters from the same canon?
You may app up to two from the same canon, but we ask you to include a paragraph in your app explaining their relation to the other character—preferably, the lack thereof.
Is this game a rip-off of Apprentice Wanted?
Yes and no. This game was made by the original mod behind AW and one of the former mods from the later team. It has been taken over by a new mod team since then.
Where is my character?
The world of Oglaf! Your character is in a fantasy/fairy tale/absurd pornography wonderland where magic is abundant and, at times, makes things incredibly surreal. The kindgom is nameless, but it is bountiful and beautiful. Sex is treated as extremely casual and normal in this world, the time period is not burdened with prudish values and the denizens of this world are the horniest you've ever seen.
We go into more detail in the settings page.
Who is The Mistress?
The Mistress is the tyrant ruler of the kingdom. She's surly, wicked and insatiable. She's a powerful sorceress and seductress and she will stop at nothing to get her way. We go into more detail in the NPC page.
Can my character interact with The Mistress?
At this time, The Mistress won't have much interest in one on one discussions with characters. In the future, we will be introducing more NPCs for events and there may be opportunities to interact with them.
Players are welcome to handwave interactions with villagers and NPC guards, as well as with minor magical beings like dwarves and nymphs. We go into more detail in the NPC page.
What is my role in the game? What does an Apprentice/Guard/Outlier do?
We've dedicated a whole page to this information, you can find it here.
Can my character change roles?
Yes, of course! Not without some adversity, depending on the change. It will be easier to give up being an Apprentice and move to the village than it will be to come from the village and try to be an Apprentice. However, we want our players to feel like they can do what works for them, so we welcome making IC changes for your benefit.
Can my character bring anything from home?
They will only come with the clothing on their back. No weapons, no pets, and no technology. All of these can be gained back using coins, but keep in mind any form technology may not work anymore.
Guards can gain back a power or a weapon by choosing to be a guard.
Will my character have their powers?
Not to start with, no. Powers can be gained back using coins. Choosing to be a guard grants you back one power.
What if my character has innate abilities because of their species?
Innate, species based abilities will still be nerfed. Everyone comes in on (relatively) equal footing. Innate/Species based abilities can be regained back with ONE regain. For example, Legolas can regain his heightened sight, sense of hearing and immortality back all at once since they all pertain to being an elf.
My character is a mage/wizard/witch, do I have to regain every single spell or can I regain a few at once?
We are willing to accept "bulk" regains in cases like this, if you can categorize particular spells, we can accept them as a category.
What if my character is injured/dead?
All ailments, including death, will be healed before characters arrive. They will be in one piece, no bleeding on the nice rugs.
How does time work?
We work in real time.
Can my character die here?
They can. They will be necromanced back to life. Please let the mods know and we can have an NPC to do this for them. Sometimes they will expect payment, depending on the situation.
Can I app a non-humanoid character/robot/cyborg?
Yes, absolutely! Give us your alien, beastly and robotic masses. Magic can be used as a cure-all for any logistical issues such as robot maintenance.
Am I allowed to give my non-humanoid character a human body?
Yes, absolutely. We ask that you try not to "same face" and choose actors/actresses that are already in the game.
What happens to my character during hiatus? What happens to them if I drop?
Entirely up to you! You're welcome to use creative freedom to decide what they're up to. They can be on auto-pilot, lost in the forest, travelling to a different kingdom to acquire a fancy cheese for The Mistress and whatever seems IC. Just let your close CR know.
If you drop, they simply vanish. Sometimes with a poof of purple, sparkly magic.
Do I have to read Oglaf to play here?
Absolutely not, especially since it doesn't really have a cohesive plot to it. We highly recommend reading at least a few strips to understand the world and the humor, though. A fondness for fantasy and fairy tales will also be very helpful.
Can players run plots?
Absolutely! We encourage player participation and creativity. Your brains are untapped sources of wonderful ideas, just waiting for a spigot. We go into more detail in the Player Plot/Event Suggestion page.
Can I play non-consensual situations here?
This is a tough question. We understand that this universe can be highly confronting and inappropriate for some characters and that other characters are not inherently good people. However, we would prefer to keep this game as light and fun as possible, so we ask that players consider the tone of the game before going ahead with this sort of theme.
Will my character be judged for their sexuality/kinkshamed here?
Not by the residents of the world, no. Characters will notice the locals are incredibly sexually liberated and have mostly moved beyond homophobia as a whole. You will also be pressed to find anyone willing to shame your character for their kinks.
Characters that app into the game are, of course, a whole different matter.
How do events work?
Events occur at least once a month, maybe more depending on the depth of it. We will put up a plotting post anywhere from a few days to a week in advance and generally we will post open logs for reactions and interactions.
Sometimes plots will run a little longer and will involve sign ups, NPC interaction and resolution. Sometimes plots will be an off the wall, random situation with no resolution. There isn't a fixed length of time events will run for.
What can my character purchase with coins? How much will everything cost?
We have a page dedicated to this information.
