Welcome to Gaia! ::

Nestled in a clearing of woods on the side of a mountainous lake stands a small establishment. Behind the building, you see a round sandy clearing, full of pockmarks. It is roped off, and hanging from the rope is a sign reading, “Battlefield.” As you approach the front gate, you can see a garden of bright blue flowers. On closer inspection, you find that they are actually blue roses. You enter the gate and look upwards at the sign above the door. It reads, “The Silver Sunset Café.”
Before entering, you decide to take one last look at the lake and then up towards the mountains. It seems to be sunset by the mountains while normal time of day in the woods. There seems to be a constant cover of mist that veils the mountains causing the mountains during the day to appear in the constant state of a sunset, but not just any normal sunset. They appear to be in a state of a constant silver sunset. This natural phenomenon is the main natural attraction of the area.
As you walk inside, the place has a cozy feel to it. There are several tables around, as well as a few couches and lounge chairs. The west wall, to your left, is a glass window, looking out at the mountain lake. In the evening, you can see the sun setting over the mountains, a silver glow descending upon the clear lake. There is a counter on the north wall, with several stools for people to sit at the counter if they wish. There is a small window into the kitchen, so the staff can easily send orders back and forth. You also notice several sweets displayed on the counter to encourage you to order. To the right of the counter, where the north wall meets the east wall, there is a sliding glass door leading out to the battlefield you noticed earlier, and to the left of the counter, where the north wall meets the west wall, there is a set of wooden double doors leading downstairs to the basement library where there is ample space to relax or do research.
Looking back at the west wall, you notice metal circular stairs in the corner leading to the second story. On the second floor, there are many rooms, obviously used for employees and guests to stay. At the end of the hall is a large door. Written in large white letters is “The Room.” In here, there is a device of advanced technology that allows one to manipulate the reality of the room to a certain degree. Thus allowing fighters a chance to battle in places they couldn’t before or allow dreamers to live out any fantasy they wish, whether real or imaginary. It may even be able to manipulate a few laws of physics.

February 2, 2009: New ownership and management has taken over the cafe. Congratulatins and gratitude to Silent for taking over.

8/29/08: Sorry everyone, we're not doing an event after all.
8/1/08: Coming soon--an event to celebrate the two year anniversary of the cafe. [Sorry it's late, but the actual date of the two year anniversary was doing a chaotic time.]

11/2-3/07: Tonight, the masquerade was finished. It was extended a couple of days to make up for the time that would be devoted to Gaia's event. The winner received a complete current jack's grab bag set and two other event items from this year. Thanks to everyone who participated during this event.

10/19/07:Starting today, the cafe will be having a masquerade. Please see the event post for details.

7/30/07:The Warning/Consequence section of the "Rules" post has been updated.

7/28/07:In honor of the first year in business, the cafe hosted a dice roll contest. The highest roller, Lebob, a.k.a. "Gerwulf", won a "July 2007 Thank You letter", and the lowest roller, Li(dahliafaolan), a.k.a. "Li", won a "Worthless Black Giftbox". All other participants were given an amount of gold equal to their highest roll as thanks for their participation.

7/25/07:Today is the cafe's first year anniversary of being in business. Thanks so much to all the regulars and passerbys that kept this place going. There shall be a giveaway hosted. See the event post for further details.

6/12/07:The journal of Ace of Talons can now be used as another location to roleplay if you feel like you want to stray away from the cafe. The cafe's first priority shall still be the running of its business since this is the Commerce Forum. The general rules of the cafe still apply to the journal of Ace of Talons. Please be respectful in your posting. If there are too many rule-breaking comments, then the current entry would be deleted and a new one would be made starting over from scratch with all the previous roleplay lost. The most convenient way of reaching the location is via the link provided in the affiliates post.

5/12/07: Rules and Consequences have been clarified. Instructions on how to rp the usage of "The Room" has been added to its post. The style of content in the Weather post has been modified. It now includes the date and season.

12/6/06: Due to an incident on this day, a seventh general rule has been added. No trolling allowed.

11/16/06: It had been deemed necessary to admend the god moding rule.

11/13/06: Just because I feel it'll be helpful to add to the feel of this cafe's environment, the weather condition will start being posted in the title in a short format just because otherwise it seems like the weather factor is being forgotten, even by the owners. sweatdrop

11/7/06:Congratulations Agaru~Mela a.k.a. "Aura" on getting the post prize.

10/16/06: *There shall be a prize for the one who gets the 3000th post. See event for more details.


Pre-October Announcements 2006: sweatdrop [Should've been dating them.]
*Due to both owners being in school and the nature of such, the cafe will most likely be more open on weekends than any other day due to the owners being busy. Although, if you care to stick around, feel free to do so because even though the owners aren't here, you can still hang around. Yet, there most likely won't be many people to tend to any needs, so just if you stay to relax please keep that in mind.

*Finally, both owners are going to be once again in school. It has most likely been aparent that this place is open at random times. Until further notice, this is no set opening or closing times as well as no set days this place will be techically open.

*The Aug. 15, 2006 birthday event was somewhat of a successful event.

*On Aug. 15, 2006, the cafe shall remain open for a yet to be decided time due to a special event being held.

*Due to the new school season starting up for the owners, the cafe will technically be officially closed starting at 10:30 PM CST on a daily basis with the exception of Friday and Saturday, but we won't kick anyone out. This is just to let you know that most likely the owners won't be around at this time or up to doing much posting.
*We would love to have some more to come around and be regulars.
