This has been circulating around on Discord for a while now, but it's finally time to announce it to the public. OC Emblem has begun development!
Now, what is OC Emblem, you may ask? OC Emblem is an idea to bring together a group of users, each contributing one character or several, to create a hodgepodge of a playable cast consisting purely of OCs. It'll basically be the Argonautica of character creators! The original intent was to use purely fanfic OCs, but since I've found such people in short supply, anyone can apply, although fanfic writers are much preferred.
Which characters exactly qualify as OCs? Well, let's first cross out those that don't. Self-inserts, for one, are highly prohibited, although I provide exceptions depending on their origins (like Ostrava and Del and ltranc) on a case-by-case basis. Non-humanoid OCs can't qualify either.
Now on to other notes on qualifications: Canon characters with little to no personality but given development by the contributor technically count as OCs (see Umbramatic's Creation Trio: Quentin/Dialga, Valentina/Palkia, and Howard/Giratina). Speaking of which, the OCs can originally be from anywhere: Pokémon, Xenoblade, Percy Jackson, heck, you can even use RP characters, like from Dungeons and Dragons or HaruFE!
If you feel like you want your character to be featured in OC Emblem, message me either here or on Discord! My tag is "Purple Mage#2497"

Anyone can join, whether friend, foe, or person I don't know! Be sure to tell me your character's class, modified backstory to fit the setting, growths, jointime, personality, affinity, character dynamics, portrait (if one is not provided, tell me what they look like or show me art of them, and I'll try to make a splice), etc.
Mods, feel free to move this to the appropriate section, or take it down if it violates any rules. Just tell me what's wrong with it in advance and I'll see if I can change it first. A better topic name would be nice too, I couldn't really think of a better title. :|
