@riking While this is certainly something that could be done, it's clunky. And since the web application that is being developed along side of it will enable multiple characters per account, I'd like to make discourse the same. Having numerous accounts is not going to probably work.
@purldator I figured the plugin route would likely be the best case, I'll explore my options with this. I'd also show account names with the character name, to help prevent abuse. Display names would also have to be unique, so others can't masquerade as other characters.
