    Trollslum Cafe XCIX: Like a Trashy Romance Novel

    Welcome to the Trollslum Café!


    Our Guiding Principle: We are fans of Homestuck, and of the trolls in particular. We like to make fantrolls, and we love to roleplay them. And so, once upon a time, this thread was created as a place to host new, undeveloped trolls so that players could flesh them out while interacting with other characters. This is the primary purpose of the Café.

    Moderators

    There are moderators to keep quality control of the Café. They will enforce rules, post new threads, and are generally around to help you if you have a problem or a question that needs answering. The current list of mods are..

    Suds McFuddle
    Steev
    Overlard
    Araiss
    Cliff_Racer
    Blank
    Ocfos

    Notice to newer players: We highly encourage you to post a profile in the trollslum thread or in the critique thread before starting your roleplaying experience in the Café. Getting some feedback on your character before you start playing can help you make a better character and avoid some common pitfalls.

    Below are some rules that we would like you to follow when you post in the Café. Please read them carefully, whether you are new or old to the Café!

    1. Characters and Settings

    The Café is located somewhere on Alternia (the troll homeworld populated by the young). Any troll on Alternia can access it. Mutants, aliens, and freaks overall are not accepted. This means no aliens (humans included), abominations, undead, ghosts, robots*, freaks*, and mutants*. General fandom for adult trolls starts at 10 sweeps and older, which means they would be off planet in the fleet or culled for failing to provide genetic material at that age, so trolls over 10 sweeps are strongly discouraged*.

    * <- The above asterisks note exceptions for good cause: if you're sending a troll of this nature in the Café, they must have a good reason to be alive (or still on the planet, in the case of adults). If your character falls into one of these categories, the moderators will ask you to justify the reason for them to be considered an exception to the rules. These exceptions must all be of Trollish origin as this is the Trollslum Cafe. Also a good rule of thumb is that it shouldn't force every single head to turn if they enter the cafe.

    The Café is also set outside of a SGRUB or S***B continuity. No troll knows about any game information or about humans. Aspects and characters from what would be from a SGRUB or S***B session (god tier/S***B powers) are also banned, save them for a session roleplay.

    2. Participating in the Café; Guidelines for Posting

    There are no pre-requisites for joining the Café. Simply jump in and start a conversation with someone who is unoccupied.

    a. Indicate which character you are speaking to if you are starting a conversation. If there is no name, be as specific as possible.
    b. You can quote the previous post to enhance the clarity of responses, but use spoiler tags and do not post quote pyramids. You can be infracted for this.
    c. Before beginning a conversation, make sure the character isn't already talking to someone. Interrupting a one-on-one conversation is rude, though planned interruptions are fine. If they tell you to go away please respect that decision.
    d. When speaking OOC (out-of-character, as yourself) use (( parentheses )) or [[ brackets ]] to indicate OOC speech.
    e. Post containing only OOC chat are prohibited. Go to the Trollslum General Chat Thread or a private medium for that.
    f. Images posted here may consist of only standard sprites or AB (Alterniabound) sprites of your character. Meme/OOC images are forbidden; use common sense.
    g. If you want to roleplay something that isn't allowed (see below), there are other mediums for roleplaying: instant messengers, including the Pesterchum client; typewith.me or sync.in collaborative documents; and private messages.

    3. Fights

    Fights are a different kind of roleplay, so they need special rules. Please read this next important section carefully.

    a. Avoid fights if possible! There are usually other options besides instantly pulling out a weapon, so try the peaceful options first. Your troll may be violent or you may want to show off your character's skills, but this is a place for character development. This doesn't mean that you are prohibited from playing a mean of provocative character, just know your limits!
    b. If you must engage in a fight, please contact the other players privately (PM/chat client) to plan things out. It is good to have an end result and a plan to avoid annoying one-upmanship contests.
    c.Follow fighting etiquette: describe your character's actions thoroughly. Avoid godmodding. A good example of roleplaying an action is: “I aim at your character’s face and fire.” It explains the action and gives the other character a chance to respond.
    An example of godmodding is: "I stab your character in the jugular vein." You don't have control over the other character's actions.
    d. Do not get involved in someone else's fight! There are exceptions, such as if your troll is in a quadrant, or if they are friends with a participant. Trolls generally don't care about other trolls' problems if they don't know them.

    4. Romance

    Quadrants ARE needed for a troll to avoid culling, but the Café is a public setting. Trolls are shy about their quadrants (seen in canon), so they won't go to a public place just to make out. Relationship progress is important for character development, but sloppy makeouts are not.

    *Anything above PG-13 such as fondling, grouping, lewd, sexual, or questionable behavior is forbidden. Take it to a private chat.
    *If you bring a character in solely to have make-outs, a moderator may ask you to leave.

    5. Problems

    Problems will happen, whether they be excessive fights, godmodding, or another player causing drama. If you have a problem with someone, contact them privately and politely, not in the thread.

    The mod team will only contact you for legitimate reasons; we aim to create a good RP atmosphere, not to harass individuals.

    The mods will try to keep the peace, and if one of them sees a problem involving your character they will send you a polite PM asking for an explanation. Characters will be asked to leave if they cause constant problems, violate the rules, or need revision.

    There is now a warning system in place: If you should warrant enough warnings, you CAN be banned for as long as needed. Please contact a mod should you have any questions, and remember to have fun!

    Explanation of Warning System.


    a.Informal warnings will be given out for breaking an offense. If you break a rule, you will be issued an informal warning. On your third warning for the same offense, you will be issued an actual warning
    b. Three actual warnings will lead to a cafe ban as long as need be.
    c. If you feel that an issued warning is unfair the mods will review it to see if the warning will be taken away.

    6. Rule Changes

    The rules may be changed at any time without notification, so it's wise to check the rules occasionally. Remember the goal is to have fun, so be polite and enjoy yourselves!

    The swing goes wide, causing Ventus to lose his balance and fall on Vallox in the process.

    Varnak sips his iced mocha and watches a fight between seadwellers.
    There's something you don't see often.
    He even knows Ventus through Samael.
    Anyway, he watches the fight...

    Ublich comes in and...oh my, what are those two doing. Are you even allowed to do that here?
    Embarrassed for them ublich quietly ducks away and sits far, far, away from the seadwellers.

    Instead of getting off, Ventus sits up while still being on Vallox and grabs at his collar.
    You punched me in the face!
    Uh...you kind of talked dirty about his Matesprit dude. <.<

    Aevery sighs, oh, hey, there's the Doctor... She doesn't really have anything to say to him though, so she stays where she is and keeps playing with glass.



    Nep on the other hand, sees Ublich and stops her hiding and gets up, then plops herself down at his table.

    Other items? Vectra had unloaded stuff onto the table with little thought of their actual value. Does anyone actually want a dry old animal corpse?

    She tilts her head. This subject asks a lot of questions. So far they sound like genuine detached curiosity, so she doesn't mind.

    Ayuumu continues to sit alone. something, clearly, is on his mind. However, we will never know what, as just at that moment someone calls his name.

    AYUUMU SWANPA.

    Ayuumu looks up and goes completely pale as he finds himself face to face with a culling drone. The drone produces a small sound recorder and presses the playback button:

    Ah, well, no, to be honest, I do not have any interest, that is to say, I don't really care about pailing whatsoever, and at this point in my, ah, life I don't beiieve I ever will.

    He begins to shake as the drone approaches him.

    N-now now... That was merely...ah...what one might call...a joke! Yes, that's right, it was a joke! Funny, right? Haha and all, well, that?

    The drone grabs him by the neck and beings dragging him out of the cafe.

    No! Please! You're making, what one might call, a terrible mistake! It really was, that is to say, I really was joking! I'll do my, ah, duty like everyone else! Please, someone help me! Please! PPPLLLLEEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE!!!!!

    With that, Ayuumu is dragged out of the cafe, never to be seen again. And so a worthless boring troll was culled forever- and nothing of value was lost.

    The attempt is only marginally successful.
    Well excuse me for speaking what I know you have thought of doing with her! honestly, you are SUCH an idiot sometimes!
    Ventus...stop...just stop. Before you get yourself into more trouble. Okay?

    Re: Trollslum Cafe XCIX: Like a Trashy Romance Novel



    Bunzle does not do much, as he glances over at the two idiots fighting. How despicable, making fools of themselves like that. He clicks his tongue. Blowing a smoke-ring, he takes another sip of his drink. Then he feels a chill along his spine and his gives a small gasp as he hears a name and turns to see a drone.

    No. Not yet, he can't yet. Now now.


    The seadweller freezes, but then....he notices some other Troll being dragged away. And he oddly feels a sick sort of relaxation.
    It wasn't him.

    But still.

    It reminded him of the giant monkey on his shoulders.
    The seadweller casts a nervous glance at Aevery. Maybe making amends sooner would be beneficial, in order to avoid what happened to that unfortunate green, to happen to himself.

    Now THAT deserves a punch to the face. Ventus doesn't like getting threatened. After the punching, he gets up off of Vallox and then sits at the table like nothing ever happened.
