Welcome to the Teahouse

I really dig snappy subtitles so i'll add it here later.


The Teahouse is a 16+ neopets role-playing and Character Development guild with the mantra that everyone has a story to tell. Every character has thoughts for the future, hopes, secrets and passions. The Teahouse is the one place in a time overrun with technology, where, for as wired together as everyone is, people couldn't be any further apart.

The guilds focus is on joining together and providing an attentive and interactive audience to your creative endeavors. We aim to use role-playing or the concept of writing together to help people expand on their own characters and worlds in conjunction with others. With a small family like grouping we hope to promote and facilitate the development you can't quite get by yourself. We are all familiar with that moment where you can't figure that one pet out. You try and you rework but in the end you find your only option is to trade the pet or adopt out, but maybe what you need is a fresh angle.

If you're interested in joining, use the links below to navigate the webpage and see what all we have to offer you here at the Teahouse.


What is the Teahouse?

A little slice of the quiet life in a big city.

The city is alive, the skyline pulsating. The city has evolved into vast labyrinthine super-structure that house the lives of millions of individuals. While some cities were built from the ground up with the idea of housing the rapidly growing populations, some were so haphazardly tossed together and built to try and keep up with the rapid growth that technology catalyzed, that the urbanized sprawl spread more like a plague.


This is the kind of city that the teahouse was built in. Though not in the grittiest parts of the city itself, the Teahouse is built somewhat on the outskirts of the downtown area, moving more towards residential areas where people are thrown and stacked like boxes in old brick apartments that were never torn down in the cities rapid expansion. Somewhat removed from the neon flashing, loud noises, and dirty hands, the former owner of the Teahouse made the place as a sort of soul salvation. A place of rest and renewal for those that had lost themselves in the fast lane. It was a moment of peace, where everything slowed to a manageable crawl, frozen for a moment in the speed of lights. Here people were more than what they wore, what they had and what they looked like.

They were individuals. Each person held a story, something unique to them and one only the could tell. This is what the owner wanted. A home for the weary to rest their feet at. It was an intimate place where he knew everyone's name and family. He was the type to remember your great nieces birthday and always have a little something of a gift. He was everyone's grandfather, a soul as warm as the tea he served. Always smiling, and though a bit strict, him and his son were prominent faces on the services he sold and he stood by what he did.

That was then. When the owner died and his son Brenton, now a young man, returned to carry the business it seemed the warm soul possessed by his father was a thing of the past, as much of a relic as everything else had become. What became of him was a man dazzled and lured into the lights of the elite. What the teahouse has turned into was a long way from where it started. It's now a hotbed for the black market that the old owner tried so hard to keep at bay. The intimacy is gone but the clients new and old, remain loyal. Either to the new teahouse or the remnants of the old teahouse, some members remaining from the old times like Francois.


This is the Teahouse. This is where your story will be heard. Whether it's your place of rest, work, or business, what will be your story at The Teahouse?

What you can expect from us

Attention to the details

members: 3
post count: 4
recruitment cycle: not currently open for apps.

When at the Teahouse you'll come to expect a few things from both guild and the members, including:


A small intimate guild of no more than 25 or 30 members.

A system that awards active members and participation in the daily, weekly and monthly events and larger plot based events.

Open Ended World
: Very open world concept with a slight sci-fi/cyberpunk edge in it to allow all manners of creatures, designs and critters in as well as the hope of helping RPers who want to develop their characters through RP based interactions. Mostly catered to Anthro and Human characters, but allows for quad as well. The story and plots will be based around the members and their characters.

Mini Plot Events: Much in the manner of neo's own events, each major plot event will have bits that lead up to them.

Character Spotlight: Nominated by your peers or selected randomly by council once a week and featured on the main page of the guild. Features are on Friday's.


Various Character Based Activites: Things like writing and art prompts are monthly but small flash events like deciphering the teahouse menu will award you quick little points and are awarded to the first person that answers. These are small things that are done on whim and can occur at any point in the day.

Daily Character Questions: A new question is posted every day at midnight NST and everyone is given a 24hr period to answer the question for points towards ranking up. The Person who won Character spotlight gets to have a character question based in or around an aspect of the character for that Friday. Example: The character is an alien from space so the question would be something like "If your character had to teach someone from a far off place something about your world, what would it be and why?"

Character/Roleplaying Directory for Guild Members: So you guys can find your perfect RP besties and just have a fun showcase of the talent of all the members.

Character Page Premades: For those who can't code and want to have character pages. We'll still have our own master list but with your own page your guildmates can possibly stalk you forever and throw nominations at us for character spotlight.


While participation in the guilds plots/mini plot events isn't forced, it's recommended and required for the final two guild ranks. Participation can be done through writing, roleplaying, drawing or any other manner you find fit.

Joining The Teahouse

Have you made your choice? Decided that Teahouse is something for you?


The Teahouse seeks out individuals that are self-motivated with a strong desire to create in tandem with others while working on their own creations individually. To see this for ourselves we do have the following things that we're looking for and in some cases require:

Writing and Art: The basis of strong characters is writing and it is thus we ask that our members have a strong sense for writing and a strong desire to write. Writing forms the basis of all things that we do here in the Teahouse and it's through writing that most of our ideals would be shared. Alternatively, we know writing is not for everyone and as thus we look for strong understanding of art and art sk*ills as an alternative.

Characters: We also require at least one complete character to show off to us. If you're coming back from hiatus, while we understand, we would like to at least something done or finished with character information on it. Whether it's a petpage or petlookup is up to you.

Activity: We do not require constant participation nor are we strict on having to post everyday, however we ask that you make an effort to be as active as you possibly can.


Have you made your choice? Decided that Teahouse is something for you? Great! Before you fill out the form below and send it to Gunjii, know that we do have rules.

one. Main Accounts are preferred.

two. Follow Neo's Rules as well as the guilds.

three. Conduct yourself respectably outside of the guild as well as inside the guild.

four. Please be literate. This goes for inside the guild as well as well as during roleplaying. Chatspeak should not be seen inside of roleplays and kept to a minimum inside the guild. The occasional lol or omg is more than acceptable but one word replies and the abuse of chat speak is not permitted.

five. While we are a roleplaying guild, Rps will not be held on the guilds boards so we ask that you keep those to NM (or however you choose to do them) or the designated area found on the guild front page. This goes for Act Like Your Active (ALYA) and script type roleplays as well.


Great! You've made it! Here's the form and hope to be seeing your application!

Username: The account you'll be joining on. While we do allow side accounts we expect the same amount of activity be shown as we'd expect of main accounts.

Nickname: What you want to be called.

Most completed character: Which of your neo character has the most content up. Including lookup/layout or just writing.

Favorite Character: We here at The Teahouse understand that sometimes even with your favorite character, sometimes you don't have time to do things. Include a short paragraph here about them even if they have nothing up.

Have you ever roleplayed before: Please list any experience you've had with roleplaying. No matter how small or large it might have been. If you're experienced we want to know. If you've never roleplayed we'd like to know that as well! It won't hurt your chances on getting in but it's so that we can best conduct our events around our members and their various talents.

Are you interested in roleplaying or learning: If you've never roleplayed we'd like to know if you want or have a desire to learn how or if RPing is something you're even interested in doing while you're with us. Again this has no impact on your ability to join but is for our own personal records.
