We see no reason,
why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot

An evening of non-stop roleplay, marking the NeoVictoria Project’s Fourth Guy Fawkes Celebration!

This Saturday we have a very special event scheduled: our fourth ever Guy Fawkes Day celebration! To keep the event in-character (I/C), we’ve given the familiar tale a slight retelling, to better fit the Neo-verse.

Time: Saturday, 5 November 2016 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, SL-time
Location: Victoria Tavern [NeoVictoria SIM]
Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)
Organized By: Lucinda Jane Strathmore Resident
DJ: Lilith Vinciolo
SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/144/218/28

Our in-character event promises to be great fun, with characters in masks and costumes, the fabulous Lilith spinning tunes, and an unveiling at 11:30 PM (8:30 PM, SL-time) with fireworks!

The Guy at the Table
Forgetting the mask covering the face, Ormolu aims a friendly smile at him. “Is the wine a good vintage, sir? And would you recommend the cake or the little heart pastries?”

If you’d like to dress your character like the Guy, the SL marketplace has some very affordable costumes on sale:

We’re inviting new players to this event and we’re hoping to get a large crowd of regulars together for some IC fun.

Here’s more in-character history for the event.

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 NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool (NRT); 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.]

About The NeoVictoria Project: NeoVictoria is a unique dark roleplay platform that brings creative people together in a supportive and collaborative environment.  Built with a Steampunk aesthetic, the goal of The NeoVictoria Project is to create a virtuous circle where roleplay becomes filmed story.  Website: http://www.neovictoria.net.  Contact for NeoVictoria: Asil Ares.

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 2137 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years.
