The Universe Point System

The Original Character (OC) Universe Point (UP) system is built to help OCs and OC universes expand! This means that OCs, too, can earn points through roleplaying and artwork, with rewards at each level! Only personal art and collaborations done by the phae’s owner may earn points towards this system. Things like commissions and gift art do not count for UP.


The UP system is entirely optional! You do not have to use the system if you do not want to, but it is a great way to earn bacon points to spend on your phae!


Earning Points

Your phae may earn UP through both written roleplays and art! This system is similar to the Championship System for HARPG, with points being earned based on how much of your phae is showing or how many words you have written!


Art Base Points:

+0.5 UP for headshots

+1 UP for partial body

+1.5 UP for full body 


Literature Base Points:

+1 UP for 400-999 words

+2 UP for 1000-1999 words

+3 UP for 2000+ words


Bonus Points:

+1 UP for collaborations (stacks on both art & literature base points)


Art Piece Requirements

All art pieces are required to have a background. Backgrounds may be self-drawn, premade, or photo manipulations, the latter two requiring appropriate credits. All art must be created in part (collab) or in full by the owner of the phae to earn points. Backgrounds should not be reused. If you have multiple characters in the same art piece, remember that only one may take UP for it.


Literature Piece Requirements

Words are counted per phae in a roleplay, not as a collective count between all phae in the roleplay. Each character must have a minimum of 400 words to earn points. Only one character per player per literature piece may claim points. If you have multiple characters in the same role-play, remember that only one may take UP for it.


Recording and Validating Points

Please use a journal, stash file, or the phae’s reference to collect a record of each roleplay piece your character appears in. Each record should include:

  • A link to the art or literature piece
  • The total of points earned

Format Example:

  • 2 UP – 1266 word individual literature [link]

Once you’ve tallied and double checked your math, you may submit your character through the UP validation form to have your UP count validated!
