    TROLLSLUM CAFE XIV: It Will Probably Survive the Apocalypse

    So, here we are. Number 14....

    Alright, I would just like to start out with a little message. I would like to remind everyone of the big bolded stuff at the bottom of this post. I know that trolls, and some of the other creatures that have been appearing, can tend to be rather rowdy, but I have become a bit concerned lately that it sometimes gets out of hand. I just want to remind everyone that the intent of the Cafe is to be a place to get some free-form, social RP going. Obviously, some rough-housing will be inevitable, but please avoid using characters who are likely to provoke hostile responses by their very nature. I would like the general emphasis to be on social interaction, rather than anti-social interaction.

    I do not want to be a cop, but I do want to make sure that this thread is an inviting place for everyone. So, please, do have a good time, but try not to go overboard. I would like the Cafe to be as inviting to new players as possible.

    It's a good place to have a seat and a cup of coffee, and make a friend, which in your language is the same word as enemy, because... you're a troll.

    ((And if you are maybe a human, which is a thing that doesn't exist, in another univere pretending to be a troll, maybe this is a good place to roleplay in a casual, social, variably canon setting or try out a new character. Please don't poke the setting too hard and please don't go on any murderous rampages. Honk.

    EDIT: Feel free to NPC service when you order something, I can't watch this all the time or reply to every comment. For that matter feel free to assume your troll works here and fill someone's order if you want.

    EDIT2: OKAY GUESS WE NEED SOME RULES AFTER ALL.

    This is really intended to be a loose social setting for people to fool around and chat and try new characters. It is a not great place for a big brawl in the middle of the room that everyone pretty much has to react to. If you are playing a character who is inevitably going to try and hurt people and provoke this kind of thing, you should really think long and hard about bringing them in here for that reason. If a fight comes up in the course of RP, please take it ''outside' instead of disrupting the whole room. It being in the thread is fine, but it should be set somewhere where new people or people who don't want to be involved can ignore it, please.

    Well, I'd explain why I have to keep a low profile, but it's pretty serious stuff. Like, the "it could and most likely would get me culled" kind of serious.
    You say this in a kind of hushed voice. Sanman's trustable with that much, you're pretty sure.

    She packs up her bag and slings it around her shoulder, more than a little tipsy.

    Umm.... yeah... T guess so.... Salom suddenly thinks that maybe he should have asked to talk to Cvetka in a more private setting, considering that the objects of conversation were currently present. Um... pardon me for asktng, but... are you... and Zack... tn a relattonshtp...? Ltke... quadrantwtse? He tries not to color when he broaches the topic. Seems even talking about it can get him flustered sometimes.

    And then Altrik returned for the cafe for the first time in like ever. Woah.

    He looks around at the various shenanigans others have gotten themselves into before heading to an empty table and taking out a book to read.

    i seeee ... my apologies for your luck, theeen ... though, is it not dreary hiding something all of the tiiimeee ...? it surely can't be any fun to have to hide all the time and not have fun whilst you're doing iittt ... a lot of my childhood was spent that way as weelll ...

    He folds his fingers together on the table.

    being deemed unfit for service also means that you will be cuulledd ... that was the situation in my caaaseee ... and it's never fun hiding from the imperial army as a blind, limp chiiilldd ... surely, though, you can't be having too bad of a tiiimee ... the people in the cafe seem to be a pleasant groouuppp ... and making friends is rather eaassyy ...

    He seems to go into thought a bit again, reminiscing. He does that quite a bit, though, so it shouldn't really be noticeable at all.

    Aaand his lusus seems to be crawling up him again, super packet in hand.

    Oh, I do have fun sometimes. Just, not as much as I'd like to.
    ...Seeing as you're pretty much the assistant manager here, it would probably help to know what secret I'm talking about.
    Can I trust you not to tell anyone?

    Temsor quickly withdraws her hand and sits back normally again, looking slightly over Lectra's shoulder out of embarrassment.

    "Ohhhh, ummmm, okayyyy. Sorryyyy...

    So I'mmmm Temsorrrr! What'ssss yourrrr name?"


    She's still too embarrassed to look her in the eye.

    Ah... T see. That's.... That mtght be... um.... To say "that mtght be good" might be too harsh. Still, it's probably a good thing Cvetka doesn't think she and Zack are a pair. That's... ktnd of what T wanted to talk to you about.... Um... T know that tt's probably not really my place to say anythtng, but.... Uh... you've... have you... seen htm around other women...?

    Salom, are you trying to break her heart? No, you think you're helping her. Oh, what shall come of this?
