Q: What exactly is “Ourani?”
Ourani is a graphic chat program in which you use a 2D avatar (AKA pose) to display yourself in hand-drawn rooms. The chat is set on the planet Ourani, which is inhabited by many alien creatures.

Q: Can I use this site for free?”
Yes. However, there are some features (such as custom avatars, rooms, and access to more avatar species and public rooms) that are only available if you are a paid subscriber. You can learn more about becoming a subscriber at our subscription and delta FAQ.

Q: Is this a chat or a role-playing game?”
Ourani is primarily meant to be a place where users can get together and chat; however, role-play is allowed.

Q: What are Deltas and how do I earn them?”
Deltas are Ourani’s currency. They are used to pay for subscriptions and services provided by users, often found on Ourani’s forum.
To learn more about deltas and subscriptions, please visit the subscription and delta FAQ.

Q: Are there any rules or posted guidelines for this site?
Yes. The guidelines for using Ourani are posted here.

Q: What should I do if other users are bothering me?”
If you find that someone is bothering you, ask them to stop or use the ignore feature. To ignore someone, click their avatar and hit ignore. If the problem persists, contact an administrator.

Q: Why do I have to be invited to Ourani?”
Being invite-only allows Ourani to process accounts individually before access is allowed. That way the Team can check the account holder’s age to ensure they are at least 16-years-old.

Q: Why do I have to be 16 or older to use Ourani?
Because of the level on content allowed on Ourani, we are not comfortable with those under 16 to access the website. This allows us to be more lenient as we are able to have less stringent rules.
