PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release 20 September 2016
The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Return of the Fishmen”.
Four days of non-stop roleplay, celebrating the NeoVictoria Project’s sixth year in Second Life!
This series of roleplay events begins on Tuesday, 20 September 2016, with a terrible explosion that floods the town. Everyone is invited to roleplay with us!
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 characters may act in aggressive, predatory, criminal and/or plain uncomfortable ways.
We use a simple dice-based wearable HUD called the NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool; avatars must wear this to see the roleplay chat. The item is free and available in our Visitor Center and various locations on our out-of-character skymall.
Players don’t have to be a member of our group to roleplay here; we do 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.]

A bit about our storyworld: in the Neo’Verse, the Sidhe (fae) never faded, but worked with … some would say ruled over …their human charges until the Sidhe Empire spanned the known universe. So many races exist: faeries, demons and clockwerk constructs (powered by gears and magic), humans, vampires, werebeasts and celestials. All held against the ravages of time by magic, intrigue and human ingenuity.
Planet NeoVictoria (where our characters play) is a small planet, nestled in the VICO III galaxy, its citizenry cling to the land and sky, for its vast oceans are home to forces that do not heed the crown. But some are loyal to the Sidhe queen who sits on her throne billions of light-years away. Alexandrina Victoria Tuatha Dé Danann, Queen of Earth, Empress of the Void: one tap of her tiny foot on the Stone of Scone sets the worlds to shake. It’s 2130 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years
Celestials you will find and other servants of the Light. But always, there is the balance. So gentle traveler, as you walk the streets of NeoLondon, be wary …for the sky is dark and the fair queen is far away.
