What is an OCT?
An OCT, Original Character Tournament, is simply an event where you pit one of your own Original Characters against an opponent's OC. It's like a large, organized, elaborate Art Trade full of the sweat, tears and blood of a competition. Contestants in this OCT compete via comics.
Deadline itself? The setting and details? Found in the link provided:
The chance to forgive any act for a single entity. For good or evil its yours for the taking - if you win.
What sets Deadline apart from other OCTs?
We're going back to the basics. Simple OCTs based on your OC interacting and fighting your opponent's OC. ~Short rounds~ Fewer rules, setup, guidelines, etc. True potential is found in freedom.
Deadline is also aiming for very short judging deadlines, within a week of each round's end.
The rounds will be short. You can go on with your life and still participate. No need to hide
