Our Story

One night, Morgana had the luxury of sleeping in her own bed. She was able to sleep so deep she had a vision in her dream.

She saw herself and her friends, and several others she did not recognise, dressed in elegant maid dresses and suave butler suits, serving tables of smiling, happy customers. Each one was dressed in a different colour and was focused on one table, talking and laughing and even playing games with some of the guests. A sudden scream made her jump and turn, but she soon saw it was one of excitement; a guest had one a prize, and she and her friends were celebrating. After a moment she realised there was something on her head. She lifted it off her head to look at it. It was a little silvery-coloured crown made of crystal.

”You did well,” came a familiar voice over her shoulder. She looked up to see Mordred, dressed in a dashing black suit, his face alight with a smile and his chestnut eyes sparkling. She felt her lips break in to a smile as he took the crown from her hands and secured it back on her head. She leant forward on her tiptoes to kiss him. Another cheer erupted from around the pair. When she looked around everyone in the cafe was looking at them, beaming and clapping. She cleared her throat and she could feel her cheeks turn scarlet.

Everyone turned back to their fun and Morgana wondered around, drinking it all in. The food was decorated with cute drawing in sauce, and the drinks we also presented in pleasing fashion.

”It’s so pretty, I’m not sure I could eat it!” said an elezen man as she walked past his table.

She smiled, looking across the room once more to see the happy people. She couldn’t describe it, but somehow, the room felt lighter and brighter as everyone relaxed and enjoyed themselves. Something made her turn, and behind her, she saw a door, glowing with a familiar blue light. As she walked towards it she could feel that the light was pleased, encouraging. Suddenly, she felt as though she knew what she had to do.

And when she woke up, she did. She called her friends and told them of the dream. Mordred and most of their friends were all enthused by the idea, though some had to be dragged out of their caves, but they came along none the less.

And that was how the Crystal Crown Cafe began.


The Crystal Crown Cafe is a player-created recurring roleplay event hosted by Silver Valkyrie Events. We work hard to be welcoming to both new and veteran roleplayers, and create a comfortable yet exciting environment that everyone can enjoy. We also welcome those who just want to have a bit of fun and potentially make a new friend. It was heavily inspired by the maid and butler cafes of the real world, particularly Maids of England, which Morgana has had the pleasure to attend herself. The cafe runs events hosted at the Silver Valkyrie estate “Her Embrace” (Plot 5, Ward 9, Mist, Lich, Light), but is also available for hire to run at other locations.

Our Games

Below are the games that are available to play at the cafe with your hosts. Please note that we may not have every game available at every cafe. If you have any ideas of games you would like to see us include, please don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know.


The Raffle

Every set of sessions we have a raffle for a selection of prizes from the vaults of Silver Valkyrie. By attending the cafe, each guest gains one ticket. You can gain more by playing a game with your host.

The raffle is drawn after the final session of the set has concluded.


Shiritori

Shiritori is a word-based game, where you have to start your word with the last letter of the previous word. Before you start, you will have the opportunity to choose from one of the following categories: Mounts and minions*, food and drink, people and places. Take it in turns, starting with your host. Winning a game will win you a ticket for the raffle.

*“Wind-Up”, “Dress-Up” and “Brave New” are omitted, but the name of the minion should only be said once, regardless of how many forms it may have.


I Spy

Very simple and surprisingly fun within the cafe. Take it in turns to guess what someone has spotted. Your starting clue will be the first letter of what you can see. The only rule is that it has to be something you can see within the roleplaying space. Correctly guessing a clue from your host will win you a ticket for the raffle. You can also gain one for keeping your host guessing for an extended period of time, at their discretion.


Nidhogg’s Wings

Against one of the cast, and the rest of the table if you feel up to it, take it in turns to pick a wing from the plate presented, then roll /dice in your party chat. The higher the number the hotter the wing. Your ability to withstand the heat will decrease the more you eat. You will receive a /tell from your host to confirm whether or not your roll is successful. If you manage to win three rolls, you will gain one ticket. If you manage to succeed all five rolls, you will gain a second.


Higher or Lower

Each guest and their host will have a set of dice. The host will roll first, then the guests must declare if they think they will roll higher or lower with their cast of the dice. Then you roll and find out. Correctly guessing three times in a row will earn you a raffle ticket. Each guest plays seperately against the one host.


Two Truths, One Lie

Take it in turns to introduce yourself to your table by telling two truths and one lie. The rest of the table must then individually guess which of your statements is a lie. Once the guesses have been counted, a point is awarded for each correct guess. Whoever has the most points at the end of the round wins a raffle ticket.


Triple Triad

Please consult with your host as to whether they have a deck with them. Win a best of three against them to win a raffle ticket.


Tombola

In exchange for a ticket to the raffle, you can guarantee yourself a prize of some kind in our tombola. What is available this time? None can be sure. You will have to find out with a /dice.

Prizes used here will be different from the raffle and will be chosen before the first session begins.


Slot Machine

Three of our hosts will stand on the stage with a selection of prisms ready. When the countdown hits zero, they have to break one of them. If the symbols match up, you win a prize from our list.

Prizes available will vary between sessions and this game will only be available at selected sessions; please check with your host for the prizes available.

Booking Your Place

Use our form to book your place.


The Classic Experience

This is the experience that many a roleplayer on Light Datacenter has come to love. Once we collect you from the designated waiting area, we will lead you to choose a seat. From there, you will be offered the menu, from which you can choose what you would like to enjoy while in our company. The games will be made known soon after, but, should you know what you wish to play, you may ask your host sooner. At the end of the session, there will be an opportunity to have your picture taken with your host. This will then be decorated and shared on this carrd and our other social media.

Every one of our guests will receive a raffle ticket just for joining us on the day. The draw will take place after all the sessions in a block have concluded (this will be announced at the cafe).


The Icebreaker Experience

The Icebreaker Experience is very much the same as the Classic Experience, except with an additional twist. Should you chose it to be so, we will pair you up with others in your session who also select this experience, so that you may forge new connections and find new friends.

Please note that there is a limit of three on bookings for this experience so we can properly pair you.


The V.I.P Experience

We are still ironing out the details of this, so please check back soon. I promise though, it will be quite exclusive.
