Section II, Characters
Back to Rules
Non-competitive characters (also
called "noncomps") are characters meant for freer restrictions than
competitive characters. You can literally make a non-competitive character
almost anything you want it to be, including a god. Your only restrictions for
power are merely there to ensure that, in all your grandeur, you do not
interfere with the rest of the room structure -- or at least, not without staff
Here are some examples of things you can
not do with a noncomp:
- Be exempt to the "Victims Call
Effects" rule in the General section.
- Resurrect characters at will
without staff permission
- Supercede or replace the current
structure of godly power in the room
- Give other characters techniques or
PL outside of an Official Teacher's teaching regimen (See the Official
- Participate in any kind of plot
without the plot moderator's permission.
Though you are certainly free to do
so, you are not required to list or even know any power levels or techniques for
a non-competitive character. Even the requirement to be incapacitated does not
apply to noncomps, though, once again, you are certainly allowed to do it
- REQUIREMENT: APPLICATION +
You must still apply for a noncomp,
using the same character sheet that a competitive character would use.
However, unlike a competitive character, you do not have to go into nearly so
much detail. You do not have to provide racial details if your character is a
custom race. You only have to list a general scheme of powers rather than
every detail of every power, though you do have to detail any power that could
be seen as controversial or potentially room disruptive, such as player
Additionally, in order to have your
noncomp approved, the handling staffer must recognize at least one competitive
character you own that you use with reasonable frequency. If you are seen to
stop playing your competitive character(s) and instead play with your noncomp,
your noncomp playing priveledges may be suspended until your competitive
characters become more active.
Non-competitive characters must
state their character type in their tags.
