  1. A wall of warmth hits you. Whiffs of caffeine and cocoa arouse your taste-buds as you take off your woollen gloves. You begin to relax a little as you take in the room's neutral tones and soft jazz music, the familiarity of the scene welcome. Perhaps you're here to get some work done, meet a friend, or just relax. Whatever you're here for, you know there's no place you'd rather do it.

    What is The Café?

    The Café is a sandbox roleplay set in a café. The purpose of it is to allow characters to develop relationships with others within the peaceful setting of café. There is no overarching aim, just the enjoyment of letting your characters interact with one another. Some fantasy is allowed- a magical girl taking a break from her day of work can come into the café (as can the monster she just defeated!). However, do not expect to be using magic a great deal: you are in the café to get to know other people, not to battle. The café may sometimes host events, such as a Valentine's day event. You may use these events as goals if you so wish (eg. Get a date for the Valentine's day event), however there is no obligation too.

    Posting

    The posting system has changed. There will no longer be time slots. Time will just be moved forward as appropriate. When conversations start coming to a conclusion IC I will discuss wrapping them up and changing the time/date in the OOC. Then after coming to an agreement with the rest of the players I will enact the change IC.
    People can post as often or infrequently as they wish, just try to be respectful to other players by making sure you finish any scene you start with them in good time. Your character could be at the cafe talking to people all day, or just in for a single time slot chatting to a particular person. So you can take part in this whatever your posting speed is, and new players can join at any point in the RP.

    ~

    Rules

    1 - As usual, follow all of the Iwaku rules, not that anyone needs reminding.
    2 - Be respectful of other players. You should try to be polite in the Out of Character chats, and break basic posting etiquette in the In Character thread.
    3- You can create a maximum of two characters, but you may only use one of them at a time. This may change in the future. NEW- An exception to this rule is that you may use both characters at once if they are involved in the same activities, such as a couple both talking to the same person.
    4- Try to be somewhat active if you join. As I mentioned earlier you can post less regularly if you wish, but it would be nice to post at least once a week to show you are still interested in this roleplay.
    5- Pay attention to when the time slots change. If the time slot should have changed but I haven't yet posted a summary of what occurred in the last time slot, patiently wait until I post a summary before making an in character post. If you think I may have forgotten to do the summary then feel free to remind me.
    6- Patrons of the café are reminded that the café is a public space, so please refrain from using explicit language.
    7- Have fun! :bsmile:

  2. Name: Julian
    Gender: Male
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Personality: A studious and diligent young man who often comes to study at the cafe. He's a part time student, working towards a degree as a botanist. He's just, with a passion for all sorts of life. He works tirelessly day and night, and even when he's come to relax at the cafe, he's still studying his notes. He's a level-headed man with a dry sense of humor, who tends to look at little details a bit too much, rather than seeing the big picture. He tends to work himself too hard, and tends to avoid social activity in favor of studying more. His intense fixation on success stems from a neglectful childhood, and a desire to be acknowledged.
    Other: Any other significant information.
     
  3. Name:

    Ley Reinhen

    Gender:

    Female

    Appearance:

    She has crisp, white hair, that flows down to hips. Her skin is a light brown, showing something of an ethnic decent. Her face is oval in shape, and piercing amber eyes exist in her eye sockets. She stands roughly 5'3 and is sturdy, but not to muscular. She has little curves on her body.

    Personality:

    Ley is a very mellow woman, her connection to the light strong, but she doesn't let it lead her. She is her own person, following her own path and doing what she believes is best for her and those close to her. Her life is dictated only by her strict code of honor, which she follows down to the last letter. From battles she is a little battle scarred, and reacts a bit violently when startled. She doesn't come often to the cafe, but when she does it is to relax and get away from the stresses of her life.

    Other:

    She is a priest of sorts, a paladin really.
     
  4. Both of you are accepted, I'll add them to the cast list! ^u^
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  5. NAME:

    Charles

    GENDER:
    Male

    APPEARANCE:
    Charles is caucasian with narrow light green eyes. He has a strong jawline and high cheekbones.
    He has a muscular build but leans more on the skinny side.
    He's 6'0 and usually sports black skinny jeans and a button up shirt with a variety of colors.
    He prefers to dress up rather than dress down.


    Personality:
    Charles is very sophisticated and hardly lets his guard down with others.
    He is quite often misunderstood as rude by others because he's very honest
    and doesn't sugarcoat things with anyone.
     
  6. Awesome, I'll add 'em now.
     
  7. Name: Kimba, of the Bloodline Taavittik

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Those of the Bloodline Taavittik tend towards very light colored fur, Kimba being platinum blonde on his underside, on his back, a darker blonde, with that same coloration turning even darker on his mane, reaching a dark chestnut at the tips. The darker blonde fur on his backside only reaches the small of his back. Area over hips, and his tail fur, are platinum blonde, like his underside... perhaps a wee bit darker. His scales... forelimbs, hindlimbs and tail's underside... are a dark yellow. Rust colored slashes mark his muzzle (just behind his nostrils), his outer thighs and exposed genitalia (family jewels), and his tail, near the tip. As usual for a male Nism, his "hidden malehood" tattoos are black. Shroudruff feathers are pale gold with dark grey chevron markings along their lengths.

    Personality: Energetic, outgoing, intent and interested in everything, Kimba can swing from aggressive to kindhearted in a heartbeat... never hides what is in his heart, though he doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve, either. He just is. Embraces life, in all its facets.

    Other: Kimba is fond of burritos and beer, likes to run and swim and climb trees. Likes playing with anything metal. Tends to wear his metalic creations (jewelry... yes, Kimba likes to make and wear and give away bits of metalic "junk"). Also tends to carry around his tools... loves to explore junkyards (only available on other worlds). Not afraid to get down and dirty.
     
  8. Accepted, although Kimba will probably have to wear at least underwear while inside the cafe.
     

  9. Heh... you could try getting him to wear such, but it would be difficult. Best thing, put up a sign saying: "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Pants, No Service." Or something similar. Though if we have any dragons, better make sure we have plenty of fire extinguishers! Dragons don't like underwear any more than Nism. Trust me.......

    Although he may seem like a bit of a grouch, Keeper is a quiet, curious sort. He enjoys listening to people's conversations and learning things about them, enjoying when people are happy regardless of if he knows them or not. Having little knowledge of culture outside of his forest however can make him a bit... Difficult at times.
