Madness in the Kitchen

Madness in the Kitchen

0 INK

In the city of Axis, a metropolis of culture and technology, a plot seems to be brewing within the confines of a small cafe

763 readers have visited Madness in the Kitchen since folclor created it.

Introduction

In the epicenter of the great metropolis of Axis lies a small cafe, well known for its great food and strange employees. As long as Axis has existed, the cafe has been there, changing hands throughout the years until it fell into the hands of its current owner.

Unfortunately, a string of events have led to an economic downfall and Axis is struggling a bit, causing an unrest among the people and a few skirmishes on the outlying territories near the city. There is little police presence within the city and crime flourishes to a point. How this affects the cafe, its patrons, and its workers remains to be seen, but there is a sign that reads, "NOW HIRING" in the window of the quaintly decorated establishment and the owner, dignified Mr. Makar, cannot open his cafe without a full kitchen staff and more than one server.

All those employed by Mr. Makar are housed in either the establishment itself (via the upstairs apartment) or two blocks south and one block east, in an apartment complex there. He screens his workers carefully and protects them as well as he can, though he seems always gone on the second Tuesday of the month.

How all of this comes together is entirely up to the players. Employees and patrons alike are welcome to play in the area and the only confinement is within the walls of the city of Axis.

Rules of the Game

1. As the threadmaster, I, folclor, will decide what is appropriate and what is not. I will appoint people to look over this RP while I'm at work or away, but generally, please do not argue with me as I do not want unnecessary drama.

2. Keep this PG-13. That means NO cybering WHATSOEVER in this forum. If you want characters to do things, lead up to it and skip or, if you really seriously feel the need to write it out, take it off site.

3. Violence is permitted among characters but godmoding is not. Your character is not perfect, he or she can be hurt quite a bit so my suggestion is decide their limits now and don't set them at the sky as I will give you two warnings before you are gone from my RP for godmodding.

4. Play nice with the other RPers. If you disrespect them, you disrespect me, therefore you lose your place in my world. I hate to have to say this, but I know that not everyone can hold their tongues when they disagree.

5. Keep discussions out of this RP. If you have a post, post, if you want to chat, head to the OOC, I'm sure we have someone waiting around to talk to you there.

6. If you have to tell us something important that is not in character (like, "I have to go for the night,") you may put it in your RP post but only above or below the text within [[]] or (()) or if you designated it as OOC.

7. Sexual harassment is not permitted within this forum. If you are being harassed by another player (sexually or not) report them or tell me and I'll report them for you.

8. Follow site TOS and Guidelines. I really don't care if you think they should be more lenient, I don't, so you have to put up with them.

9. DO NOT kill characters unless you have permission from the player.

10. This is NOT a romance RP. While romance is fine, that is not the focus of the RP.

11. Don't try to take over my RP and you'll be fine. ^^

12. I reserve the right to add rules at any time, though I will inform you of them.

13. This is a semi-lit RP, that means at least 3 sentences per post unless you absolutely CANNOT think of more to write (I understand writer's block, I have it often).

14. Have fun~!

Alastair presented the giant with dress pants and a nice shirt and tie. "Here you are. Salem, I expect you to find black dress pants, a vest, a white dress shirt, and a tie by the end of two days, all right?"

---

Meena smiled. "Ivan...that's a fun name... so there's Salem, Ivan, Dimitri, and Julia. YAY! New friends!" She hummed to herself as she walked out the door, beginning to make her way down the street expecting them to follow her to the apartments. She enjoyed new people and it would be nice to finally get the restaurant running. Maybe by the time they got back Julia and Dimitri would have somethign ready for all of them to try!

Julia checked the cleaning supplies under the sink and nodded before straightening and joining Dimitri by the freezer. "Pasta sounds good." She turned to study the walk-in freezers and sighed. "Well, let's get to work on this. I really hope we find some dairy in here, otherwise one of us is probably going to have to make a store run whether we want to or not. You want to start on the side with meats or the side with the vegetables first?"

"Ok, that shouldn't be a problem," he still had some money left and thought it would be enough since he already had the dress shirt and wouldn't have to worry about paying for an apartment. Salem smiled sharing Meena's excitement over making new friends, "Yes, yay new friends!" He followed after the cheerful girl quite happy and proud he had stumbled upon a job and a place to live in one go. "So do you live in the apartments as well?"

"friends?" the big man looked to the little ball of sunshine before looking back to the new change of clothes he was holding. once more his gloomy expression softened and Ivan smiled warmly. yes... friends. a new home, a new job, and new "friends" he said the last part out loud, still with that warm expression on his face. eventually he would have to drift back to earth, and that gloomy look would return, but afterwards Gojinki turned his head towards the owner "is this really alright sir? I don't yet have the money to pay you for this..." maybe it would come out of those 'tips'? that might be the case.

((Sorry for not posting before this. Was at Rikiya's house last night [[low signal]] and had to work all day today.))

"Yep!" Meena chirped as she tromped down the sidewalk. "Mine is near the ground floor, though. I don't know where yours will be. I guess you'll have a roommate, but I don't know. I don't have one..." She trailed off at this as her eye caught on a cotton candy stand. "OOO!! OOO! I want some!" she exclaimed, running over to the stand and jumping from foot to foot. "Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalem, Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiivan, do you want cotton candy too?"

She looked back expectantly and her smile dropped a few degrees when she saw that the larger man was not with them. "Where did he go?" She huffed in slight annoyance but cheered up again when she saw Salem still approached. "Cotton Candy!"

---

He shook his head. "Oh no, you don't pay for your work outfit. Now, as this isn't something we have laying around too much you'll have to buy more if needed, but I can't expect you to pay for this while you may not even have enough money to gather the necessary clothes items."

Re: [OOC] Madness in the Kitchen

okay, so everything seems to have slowed down a bit in the RP (unfortunately) but I think it's simply because of finals and other things occupying our attention. I know I've been working a lot and spending more time with certain people and on my book than I have on this RP. That's okay, though, since that's the way it's supposed to be, real life comes first. ^^

Anyway, after this week, considering that school will be out, I expect the posts to get more frequent and we can have a little more action. Also, I don't know if I made this clear before, but you CAN have characters who are not employed by the cafe.

[OOC] Madness in the Kitchen

Hey, and welcome to the OOC forum for Madness in the Kitchen. ^^

Please feel free to look around and I hope you want to join! Just submit a character and I'll look it over before deciding whether or not to include you in our cast. Have fun!

Also, if you have any questions feel free to PM me. If I'm not available (like I won't be at times) but mikonoyami is, PM her and she can relay any questions to me if she doesn't know the answer. She's kind of my second in command. ^^
