I see a lot of people are liking Cogito's idea, so we're gonna stick with the "afterlife" concept for the 2nd OCT.
Also, I agree with Zega about changing the bus part. If we had everyone on a single bus, they'd just have a free-for-all brawl at the beginning (so why'd they fight in 1-on-1 battles, ignoring others?), so I propose this:
Everyone who died remember most of their lives, but can't remember the cause of their deaths. They start out in different parts of the purgatory, where they are greeted by the hooded figure (which explains them the rules), and must find other OCs in order to fight them for a chance for revival.
Also - should we have some non-human NPCs roaming the purgatory, too? So OCs would have to fight them as well?

You keep returning to that NPC thing, which I honestly think is a super bad idea. It's an OCT. It's about fighting OCTs. If I were to fight any NPCs, I wouldn't spend more than a single panel on it, which would be my OC, leaving a dozen bodies behind him. NPCs are good for setting the stage though. There could be plenty of devils, angels and dead people roaming around, but not as opponents.

Otherwise, I think your idea is an improvement upon Cog's (and coincidentally, closer to one I suggested :P). I think a good OCT needs a large, free roaming environment open to interpretation, so the idea of people being in different parts of purgatory sounds appealing. I'd suggest that purgatory is a personal space, created by the sins of each OC, and therefore a part of the characters story. Fights could take place in the bridges between these pocket dimensions or on the border between related purgatories. A part of the Character Reference could be a list of purgatories a character has to go through and why.

Agreed. We'll only have non-hostile NPCs, then.
Also, I like the idea of different parts of the purgatory being representations of the sins of the dead.
Let's wait and see what others think of the idea.

Well, of course, nobody is stopping you from mutilating the entire population of hell, even if they are non-hostile.

I meant "non-hostile unless provoked". But if you attack them for no good reason, they can be quite troublesome.

Since they are random NPC's I guess we can create them ourself.
If they are specific, Black's propably gopnna create them.

Well, we're probably gonna have few NPC "examples" which people could use for creating NPCs they might need for their story. Most likely, there are gonna be some demonoids and souls wandering around.

I'd know what Characer I'd use, if it was underwater.
Though I think I won't take part in the 2nd OCT

The 2nd OCT will be an "After-Death" one.
Time: Present.
Location: Purgatory.
We've already discussed that above, we'll just add more details to it before we start.
(More people seem to be interested in it than the underwater one.)

It's a talk/discussion thread, we just use it to discuss the details about the next OCT so we won't need to create a new thread for it (plus, this one's already stickied XD).

Well, since O.C.T.'s racing toward it's conclusion, I think it's high time I post details about the next one:

Snafu O.C.T. 2: Afterlife

Story:
All OCs lived in a modern-day societies (no magic nor non-realistic technology).
After their deaths, they were offered a second chance - to return to life.
But in order to be revived they had to win in a contest against other souls (OCs) trying to reach the same goal.
All OCs were ordinary people until they were sent to the Purgatory.
Since they are now bodyless souls, they have recieved "powers" depending on their sins and/or personality.
Now they are searching for other "contestants" in the Purgitory, trying to earn their 'second chance'.

Purgatory:
Entire contest takes place in the Purgatory.
Purgatory's composed of 7 areas, representing 7 deadly sins.
All areas are connected with each others - any area borders ALL 6 others.
Every area represents a sin, so (for example) in area representing 'greed' you might see gold and treasures all around,
but they are all unreachable because they are surrounded by walls of fire, botomless pits or uncrossable rivers.
Each OC starts in the area consistent with their greatest sin.

Residents:
Apart from souls in the contest (OCs), there are also non-humanoid NPCs - angels, demons, etc.
These NPCs are normally non-hostile, unless provoked.
They may be asked for information, shelter or (non-contest related) assistance - but they will NOT interfere with
the contest, so they will not help any of the contestant in the fights.

---------------------------------
Judges:
(Not yet decided)

The Prize:
One commission, chosen by winner.
Available commisions by:
(Not yet decided)
---------------------------------

---
Also, I was wondering if people are interested in making a 'Snafu OC Battling League', which would basically let anyone challenge other peoples' OCs outside the OCT. And it doesn't have to be a battle or what-not - they can have a cook-off, for example XD . Anything forumers agree on.

I approve the league!
I'm not sure If I'm actually going to take part in this oct, depends on when it's going to start.
I'd offer to be a judge If I decide not to take part, and there's still a spot

    Question for you - if your OC is one you've made prior to your rules and they do have some sort of... whatever power before they died.

    What if you don't want that?
    Am I just SOL?

Got a question about these powers

Winning would be awfully hard without those, unless you go for an uncharecteristic approach, such as competing with other OCs on board games or something like that XD

@Meho:
Auditions for 2nd OCT will start as soon as this one ends, hopefully. If you don't enter, you're welcome as a judge, as far as I'm concerned.

@Visi:
Well, 2nd OCT will have realistic characters (at least while they were alive), so they shouldn't have any "powers" before they entered the Purgatory. You could slightly alter an existing OC to make him fit the rules or make an entirely new one.

@Meho & Aura:
OCs in OCT don't have to have any powers, it's just allowed to have some (preferably) related to his sins and/or personality. All fights in the OCT will be just that - beat the crap out of your opponent. However, in the "Battling League" you could play a board game or cards with your opponent if you want.

About "Snafu OC Battling League":
We'll probably need a judge/organizer (or few of them). League's setting will probably be the same one as 1st OCT's - that way any character would be allowed (unless ridicilously overpowered).
