Normally we want to encourage everybody to stay in character all the time. But, there are circumstances where that conflicts with other goals. A nice example is that of a crabby or obnoxious character, versus our general ethic of supporting new players. Should a mean-spirited character be helpful to newbies? Maybe not. But it would be good if the player owning the character would help. That's a great time to jump in with an OOC message.

Note that OOC crosses World boundaries. OOCs are received by everyone listening to the ooc channel, whether they're presently in TriadCity, Midgaard, Dungeon, or any future World within the SmartMonsters Universe.
