Celebrate ten years in SecondLife!

We are Ten Years Old!

September 2020 marks the NeoVictoria Project’s tenth anniversary.  Over the decade, we have transcribed more than nineteen-hundred roleplays to our community website, produced almost one hundred machinimas, sponsored eight Fantasy Faires, and welcomed hundreds of players into our community.

For the next two months, we celebrate this success with a mixture of roleplay and out-of-character events and the unveiling of a delightful addition to the main SIM.   Everyone is invited, and everyone is welcome.  Come and celebrate with us!

In NeoVictoria, we do free-form roleplay.  This means there is no script; scenes evolve out of real-time character interactions.  Dark roleplay means characters may act in aggressive, predatory, criminal, and 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 ask newcomers to 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.]
