Background on the Yuletide in the Sidhe Empire
In the modern era, the Yuletide is a time for celebration; feasts are held and gifts are made. Throughout the Empire, the great families vie to hold spectacular events in their slithens, and cease-fires are called in any war-time theaters.
Scholars trace this time back to the Wild Hunts of old; these ghostly processions in the winter sky were led by the (dead) god Odin. In life, he led his court and the sidhe warriors on hunts during the dark times, seeking to find and undo any evils the demon-folk and frost giants may have wrote. On Old Earth, the Yuletide lasts a fortnight and begins on the Winter solstice, the longest night of the year.
This time of year sees an increase in supernatural activities, with the vampires being particularly sensitive to the change-of-season. Those prone to melancholia are most vulnerable, and it is considered unlucky to make a twice-born during this time, as this is feared to result in a the creation of a draugr.

About the Roleplay: In NeoVictoria, we do free-form dark roleplay. Free-form means there is no script; scenes evolve out of real-time character interactions. Dark roleplay means that characters often act in aggressive, predatory, criminal and/or plain uncomfortable ways. We use a simple dice-based wearable HUD called the Jade Kreations Role Play Tool Suite; avatars must wear this to see roleplay chat. The item is free and available in the out-of-character skymall.
Players do not have to be a member of our group to roleplay here; we ask newcomers take a tour of the Visitor Center in NeoVictoria SIM to learn about the storyworld before joining in the roleplay.
[Observer tags are also available for players who want to visit the land level, but not roleplay.]
