Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)
Background on the Clockwerk Balls
Often sponsored by local veteran associations, “Clockwerk Galas” are very popular affairs, serving as fund-raisers and recruitment. The most amazing is held every Fall in Old London on Old Earth. It runs a fortnight with the oldest houses vying to raise the most money with fantastical parties and auctions. The “Royal Clockwerk Ball” closes the festivities; it’s held in Buckingham Slithen and all the Court attends. Here the most valiant of the year’s warriors are awarded the Sidhe Cross.
The NeoLondoners are planning one evening of celebration, in the Victoria Inn and Tavern. All clockwerks are welcome. All proceeds going to the local widows and orphans fund. [This is roleplay; no actual money is being raised.]
In the Sidhe Empire we find three kinds of mecha.
- Augments (living creatures with clockwerk parts),
- Automatons (clockwerk dolls housing conscious souls),
- and Strand Constructs (golems of pure machine consciousness).

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 ; 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 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 2138 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years.
