The Sun Also Rises, the patriarch of the esteemed Rise and Co. Preserved, Prepared and Exotic Foods, perched upon the highest mangrove root behind his base and smiled the smile of a buck who had everything. The owner of his heart, Moonfrost-Like-Ashes lay sleeping, brows creased in annoyance at the bustle of the shop - indeed, their area of operations was creeping over their initial stone-set boundaries, now marked by strings of salted, dried foodstuff in categorised stacks and their customers' payment of plants and meat. The Kin that he had welcomed into the fold all had impeccable work ethic (what they lacked in competence they made up in enthusiasm) and a shared passion for the coalition's main focus: amazing food. But a shop wasn't made by staff alone - their customers had been crucial in recent preserving advancements, bringing the most fascinating resources from all over the swamp to their humble headquarters for further research and development.

Rise may have everything, but he was also an ambitious buck. With the discovery of further lands and the new blood entering the swamp, there was surely so much more to explore on culinary horizon. Rise was also a compassionate family buck, and the thought of Kin out there scavenging for scraps when the Motherfather had granted them such abundance was simply perverse. Finally, demand was growing fast, and haphazardly expanding without further planning would be irresponsible. They needed to reach out to more Kin, to ensure that Rise & Co. remained a sturdy establishment and most importantly, brought joy and purpose to as many as possible.

The Sun Also Rises called out to his people:

"Everyone, we need to start recruiting!"

Rise & Shine consists of Rays of Sunshine - Kin from all walks of life, with varying personalities and moral codes, brought together by the passion for good (read: prepared, preserved and/or exotic) food. The longevity and portability of preserved food has proven useful especially to hunters and travellers, leading several to join their ranks as top notch suppliers who bring us meats and fruits from their long treks all over the swamp. Arguably one of the most successful (and perhaps the only) purveyor of prepared, preserved and exotic food, Rise & Co.'s good reputation and quality products has resulted in demand for supplies that require network expansion.

Payment for foodstuff is simply barter trade for Rise & Shine's continued culinary forays - Rise & Co. accepts all sorts of stock for equivalent exchange of food, evaluated by quality, freshness and desirability in developing new techniques and flavours.
Above all, Rise seeks to bring purpose to kin by pushing food preparation in the swamp to its limits.

It is at heart a family business, which is sort of true because all the kids are in it, but also primarily true because Rise’s definition of family technically extends to anyone who can withstand his well-meaning if somewhat confused paternal affections.
The rapid expansion of the business and presence of trade, however, has generally turned R&S from a hippie socialist commune to a pervasive, if kindly, systematic presence in the swamp.

. History .
Rise & Co. was technically formed when the founder, The Sun Also Rises, met his second-in-command and best friend, Sky Fell In (forming 'Co'). Together they started from humble salamander traps and rudimentary submersion preservation, and later became more prominent in the public eye when sisters Summer Fades and Saddened Eyes joined the team. The arrival of Moonfrost-Like-Ashes, Rise's lifemate, brought significant advancements in preservation, and the range of produce that Rise & Co. as well as the side of their network increased significantly.

Today Rise & Co. preserves, prepares and purveys everything from fruit to poultry to reptiles with various flavour influences, and boasts a large team 'family' members spanning generations.

Please click for detailed department breakdowns and their members on p2!

Promotion Opportunities & Employee Benefits
Rise & Co.’s patriarch and core members appreciate and recognise competence and earnestness. (Rise, in particular, is very concerned about the happiness and sense of purpose that his tribe members derive from their roles.) Kin are welcome to take on and/or try various roles and can be sure of well-deserved promotion opportunities, naturally provided that their skills are suited to their desired station. Since the top management are still very hands-on in the shop, your efforts will not go unnoticed.

Tribe members receive many employee benefits. All Kin get samples of new products and additional bonuses on top of basic compensation in seasons of abundance. Rise & Co. has deep interest in your well-being, and will use our ample resources to ensure that any ailments are taken care of by way of barter for external services. As one big family, Rise & Co. welcomes staff’s children into the main shop space and provides complimentary childcare services. Finally, Rise & Co. has a strong support system for troubled Kin - no issue is too personal to tell and receive advice on (*please note we have high levels of transparency and the entire tribe will probably know of your troubled love life by the end of the workday).

We Have Chickens
User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.
Rise & Co. have successfully domesticated these wonderful plump fowls, and are the sole steady suppliers of chicken and their by-products in the swamp. Join us for a chance at feathery, clucky companionship and other benefits.

Please check below for Chicken T&C.


. Meta information .
Please note that RP is not really required in this tribe, but greatly loved and encouraged. As long as there's a basic plot for significant events [such as the joining of the tribe], that'll work just fine!

Nature of RP
Unless there is a pressing issue [eg. unforeseen weather, lost children, horde of rogue boars devouring everything], RP will usually tend towards being lighthearted, humourous, perhaps a little mundane and all around heart-warming (your mileage may vary...). However, there are a variety of personalities in the tribe, and there can be Serious Work RP depending on the situation. Keep in mind that the boss is a very loving buck, some members of the core team are hilariously gossipy and staff are well-compensated[/fed], so angst has to work around that.

Main People Involved
The top 2 involved are myself, Maxx D, and Jun D, followed by our poor Ruriska who has to RP with us a lot. We both RP in short, succinct ways, especially when it comes to quick-fire conversations, and lovely Ruri is very used to our shenanigans. Don't stress out about RPing lengthily and sophisticatedly when it comes to us.

Expectations and Guidelines
If you decide to join in the tribe RPs, we hope that you'll be at least semi-active and work towards a clear, purposeful end in your RPs. Please try not to keep others hanging.
We don’t need you to be actively engaged, but if you’re going to disappear permanently (eg. leaving Gaia) and should be taken off the roster, please let us know - we would really appreciate it.

Please, no God-moding - be conscious of your fellow RPers and be reasonable in your Kin's actions. Do not control the actions of another person's Kin without permission. In RPs or metas with Jun and Max, please go with our flow: we will always try to resolve it in everyone's best interests, and if we're subtly herding you in a certain direction we're planning a plot payoff.

Activity will be rewarded as best we can - we have some ideas, though they’re secret for the time being! wink

Recognising the truly outstanding of the workforce! Black Tongue is the epitome of excellence this month.

Rise says: "We all had a great month, and Black Tongue really stood out and took one for the tribe recently! His willingness to sample the highly fascinating glowing fungi that Long Ago brought back was incredibly inspiring and saved us from expending more valuable time and resources on ascertaining its nature. Thank you so much for your services and team spirit, Black Tongue!"

. Employees of Previous Months .
June '12: Sky Fell In -
"I am very happy to accord our first Employee of the Month title to my second in command, Fell. I was earnest and keen in my young adulthood, but only managed to really get Rise & Co. going with his brilliance, skill and love. Fell is superbly intelligent, never shies from groundwork and is always there for the tribe and myself. Thank you for everything!"
July '12: The Killing Moon - "I am delighted to recognise one of my sons, The Killing Moon, as our Employee of the Month - and I believe everyone will agree that it is deserving! His welcoming demeanor and impeccable selling skills has ensured, amongst other things, a good crop of herbs in return for our upcoming experiments. Son, you make me so proud."

. FAQ .

Haha.
I'm perfectly serious here. |:

Does this tribe want to own my soul and life???
Rise & Co is a non-exclusive tribe, meaning you are welcome to join and be part of other tribes while being a member of Rise & Co! Naturally you are expected to do your work and do it well, but ad hoc work and flexitime can be arranged. In other words, it really is kinda like a bunch of hippies.

Aren’t customers like suppliers too?
There is a key difference: customer items traded are more irregular in content, so those exchanges are considered payment, not supply. Suppliers run on a general schedule with consistency in amount, content, quality and timing. Of course, if a regular customer consistently trades items that Rise & Co. desires, then we will offer to turn that relationship into a supplier one.
Customers also don't always pay, and don't always pay in materials that are directly related to shop activities (eg. in services, medicines and so forth).

Other questions, if asked, will be added!

. IC GUIDES .
These guides will give you an overview of how things work within the Matope context and what can be canonically assumed/brought up in RP.

Overall: members outside of the core team are not privy to the secrets of how salt is acquired and the preservation and pickling formulas/recipes. Such knowledge is only be granted to very special members of the tribe.

'Science': Rise & Co.'s R&D revolves around two aspects: 1. engineering 2. culinary.
The engineering side looks at methods of entrapment as well as the technicalities of the preservation process, for example setting up rudimentary dams of saltwater and methods of acquiring salt. All of these engineering feats are achieved by teamwork and very basic tools from the swamp: branches, stones, vines, etc.
The culinary side experiments with optimum preservation times and flavouring produce in the preservation process.

With the acquisition of what Rise heralds as 'a miracle', the effects of the tribe's in-house salamander's fire is being investigated in both engineering and culinary aspects. Charring, searing and just plain ol' cooking is in the works - indeed, it will revolutionalise the on-going culinary pursuit of the tribe!
User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

Food: In Rise's opinion, any animal with flesh on its bones in the swamp can be pickled and should be eaten. However, due to potential public disapproval, Rise & Co. generally holds off hunting species commonly owned as pets and those held sacred. Naturally, large predators are less common but not impossible - however, there must be a very good IC reason for it (eg. Red Ring of Death and Cry More can bring down a relatively big alligator because they are professionals in top shape who specifically and constantly train for hunting and combat). As long as the kill is justifiable, it’ll be fine!

All fruit in the swamp can be dried and are either left whole or post-processed (i.e. torn into strips manually). Fruit may also be mashed up as foal food, a recent innovation developed after the birth of Rise and Grey’s own children, as the consistency suits their young digestive systems much better.

Rise & Co. can also provide unprocessed foodstuff courtesy of the gatherers and hunters, though that's not the main province of the shop.

At the behest of certain employees who own pets, Rise & Co. have also developed pet-specific food which the in-house pets regularly enjoy (reports show that they appear more obedient and alert to commands with the opportunity to gain a treat; portliness varies according to daily exercise).

Due to the far-flung supplier network and the fact that some rare items do not pickle well, Rise & Co. also stocks non-preserved, limited time-period (for obvious reasons) exotic food. These include exciting possibilities from the shore thanks to skilled and swift suppliers, such as fruits and saltwater fish.
