Out of Character, abbreviated as OOC, is a term used by roleplayers to indicate a comment or action that is performed or said by the player. Many roleplay dreams have special rules regarding OOC comments, many requiring that it be done via whispers, in bracketed form {[[ ]]) or in a designated area of the dream reserved for such interactions.

OOC conversations can range from simple socialization, to explaining an action that occurred in roleplay, or elaborating on a particular action or character attribute.
