The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Return of the Fishmen”.

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.]

Report from the 2016 “Talk Like a Pirate” Party

The 2016 “Talk Like a Pirate” Party in the Skyclub in Machinima SIM.

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.
– Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi
The Party Was Hopping!

Event Description

Mateys …it wer a great success, this coming-together of scurvy dogs and knife-wielding lasses!  Miss  Gabrielle Riel rolled the shanty tunes on Radio Riel’s airways, and brought pirates and scallywags from across the Steamlands to the festooned skyclub in Machinima SIM.  And those what could attend, left some rum for the latecomers!  Until next year,  weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!
