The following is intended to be a comprehensive guide to terms as they are used on and in relation to EvoCrit.
Administrative Action: A catch-all term for actions taken by an EvoCrit administrator. Can range from changing a value in the database to deleting a user account.
Adoptable: A design for use with EvoCrit, sometimes used to mean ones that are available to purchase or otherwise obtain.
ARPG: Short for "Adoptable RolePlaying Game" or "Art RolePlaying Game." ARPGs are the main draw of EvoCrit, and are currently mostly available on Toyhouse.
Character: An owned adoptable.
IGN: Short for "In-Game Name." Username on the EvoCrit site.
Internal Name: The name used to refer to a specific EvoCrit character in site code. Follows the format of a project-specific letter sequence followed by the adoptable's ID number (e.g. CT15 would be CardTamers ID 15).
Mini-Game: A game which is integrated into the EvoCrit site and allows for the collection of project currency, characters, and more.
Mystery Adopt: Any adoptable where the design which is being obtained is not visible before purchase.
Mystery Capsule: A specific type of Mystery Adopt where some details about the character may be chosen, but very little is otherwise known about the result.
OTA: Short for "Offer To Adopt." A method of obtaining an adoptable where offers are made and the offer which is chosen determines who gets the adoptable.
Project: The specific term for a specific EvoCrit IP. Includes the ARPG, Mini-Games, and any other related goods. Read more here.
Project Currency: Currency which can be obtained in a project and generally cannot be used outside that project.
RLC: Short for "Real Life Currency." Currency (such as USD) which is used in the real world.
Roll: A single, randomly generated result from an action taken in an ARPG or the result of a Mystery Capsule.
Tracker: The EvoCrit Tracker site. Currently the only EvoCrit site which is enabled, as the main site is being redone.
Unofficial Character: A character from before EvoCrit existed. Read more here.
Voucher, Vouching: Indirectly purchasing an adoptable by means of trading goods and/or services which have been purchased specifically as payment. This is not allowed under the EvoCrit ToS.
