We are an Original Character Tournament (OCT) & Original Character League (OCL) registry, one of the first and most successful. In addition, we have a FAQ for beginners to the OCT scene, resources for OCT/OCL hosts and judges, and ways that you can help make our group run more smoothly. Furthermore, we have plans to provide more services in the future.

Hello from Aegypius-X again! Everything should now be up to date. If you have a listing with us, be it for an upcoming OCT, or on or Wanted Ads page, or what have you, I encourage you to check to make sure there are no mistakes and that everything is where it's supposed to be. Note the group if you spot a problem, and I'll take care of it right away. Cheers!

:groups:01/31/14 GC

Hi everybody! Aegypius-X here.  We've been a bit inactive lately due to life and what have you, but I've spent the past few days cleaning and updating our directories, and everything should be back in tip top shape! Due to the amount of updates, I have not added them all to the new updates page, so if you're looking to see if something has changed status, I would recommend going straight to the listings.

IF YOU HAVE SENT A NOTE RECENTLY THAT HAS NOT BEEN ANSWERED, and it is still relevant, please feel free to send it again. I'll be hunting down notes that got skipped, but noting again will get you help faster.

Thanks for sticking with us, guys, and sorry for the slacking.

:groups:4/20/13 GC

Hi OCT followers!  Just wanted to give you a heads up that OCTFOLLOWERS WILL BE LOOKING TO TAKE ON NEW STAFF.  I'm in the process of re-working the staffing structure, but we'll be looking to take folks on starting in MAY 2013.

Do you love OCTs?
Do you have a lot of free time? Or even NO free time?
Do you spend all your time on deviantartART anyway?

Do you want to help OCTFollowers stay up to date?

If you have these qualities, we want YOU to put in an application for an OCTF admin position!  Experience with OCTs is preferred, but not required.  More details to come~!

Sorry to bother you but does anyone know if there's any groups similar to this but for indexing roleplaying groups instead? I'd like to find an RP group to join but I have no idea where to start. ;w;
