  • Out of Character (OOC) is a roleplaying term, referring to the world of the players, rather than the world of the characters. Actions in the game that are described from the point of view of the assumed character are referred to as In Character (IC). Actions or discussion of the character from the player’s point of view are OOC. Examples of OOC action in the tabletop medium would be going to get a soda or rolling the dice.

    OOC can also have almost moral connotations, when it is said to be unrealistically interfering with IC factors. For instance, some players are criticized for interfering with their character’s actions and psychology to produce a desirable OOC effect. These players are often believed to be treating the roleplay as a “game” rather than as storytelling. While the term game is often used to describe roleplay, purists observe that important traits distinguish it. For instance, in a traditional game, whatever character or symbol representing the character (e.g., the chosen character in Street Fighter) is merely an extension of the player, whereas in roleplay, the player attempts to become the character and “realistically” portray him or her, as an actor might.

    “IC/OOC Separation” is an accepted tenet of many roleplaying systems.

    Out of Character (OOC) is also used to refer to fan-written literature when a character is portrayed as doing something that the character would not normally do. Examples include writing a normally docile character as regularly violent and brutish, because the literary portrayal of the character is not consistent with canon establishment of the character’s thoughts or actions.

  • OOC stands for Out Of Character, OCC is not widely used and I’m not even sure what it stands for, but it probably means the same thing.

    This is used in a situation where a person is roleplaying, and he sets up a certain persona for himself as his character, with an identity not similar to his own. When this person says something OOC, that means that he is about to say or do (or has already said or done) something that his character would not normally have said or done giving the circumstances, so this person is temporarily speaking as himself instead of as the character he set up.

    For an example, If you and your friends were playing wizards and dragons in the backyard when your cellphone suddenly rang, you would say, “[OOC]: hold on a second, I gotta answer this phone call” and the giant dragon you were about to slay would pause for a minute allowing you to answer your phone, as a wizard would not exist in a time period where cellphones also existed.

  • OOC – out-of-character

    OCC – I’m not sure (Off Camera Character, perhaps?)

  • What Is Ooc

  • I always thought OCC meant “out of character comment”. You might use this if you were going to interrupt your roleplay with a comment like “I have to leave in 15 minutes” or “I really like your style”, and then resume the roleplay.
