In human mythology, vampires are creatures who feed on the life essence of others, generally by consuming living blood. Vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and known by different names, such as vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania.
In the Neo’Verse, they have a place in the Sidhe Empire and they can hold great power. There are three kinds:
the children of Hel (those born-to-the-blood),
the twice-born (those made by her children,
and the draugr (ghoulish monsters).

FantasyFaire2015 ended last week: it raised L$7,910,480 (US$31,642) for Relay-For-Life and the fight against cancer. It did that because people cared enough to volunteer their time to create content that drew players from all of Second Life into the SIMs.
This year, NeoVictoria sponsored the Aurora SIM and produced another great roleplay cycle. We’re taking a moment to publicly thank the people in our community who worked so hard, over a very short time, to make “White Wedding” an overwhelming success!
Studio Yue stayed up late too many nights, making the machinimas that tracked our roleplay in almost real-time. Watch all of them here.
MadMechaMessiah Resident played multiple characters, including the Groom, often at the same time. Their final roleplay as Augustus Whitehill was simply amazing!
Akasha Electricteeth developed the character of the Bride, roleplaying most of its scenes, and found the amazing skeleton-avatar we used for it!
myomy Resident created a special edition of the NeoLondon Times, so we had an in-character prop to give to faire-goers during our time in Aurora. If you haven’t read it, here’s the link.
Tarquin Evermore built a charming steampunk-airship as our Relay-for-Life gift.
Certified Lunasea rebuilt the Second Life wiki’s chat-bot script, so we had a working chat-bot of the Bride to entertain visitors when we weren’t roleplaying in Aurora SIM.
Treyhem Whitfield rezzed their steampunk-airship, the Winged Mare, so we had a great set-piece for our characters to use as their transportation to and from the fairelands.
Fianah Mistwood and myomy Resident kept our events on track by keeping the roleplay order organized in the NeoVictoria Group chat; Tafiyah Ehret helped with roleplay transcripts; and Jhaesoph Foxdale was our GM at the fairelands.

Reunited, the lovers perform the needed calculations to reverse the spell. They break the rune locks, but in the process, Nourie’s spirit is unbound and she begins to fade. Rather than lose her, Augustus stops the spell and in doing so, is killed. Both spirits now, they thank the NeoVictorians and share a final kiss, before his last incantation transforms them into a cloud of butterflies.
