The NeoVictoria Project presents “A Legacy of War”

PRESS RELEASE
 For Immediate Release
 20 September 2017

The NeoVictoria Project presents “A Legacy of War”.

Four days of non-stop roleplay, celebrating the NeoVictoria Project’s seventh year in Second Life!

This series of roleplay events begins on Wednesday, 20 September 2017, with the arrival of sky-pirates!  Everyone is invited to roleplay with us!

SLUrl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/134/202/752

[From the Visitor’s Center, teleport to the NeoLondon Bridge, then cross the Neo-Thames; the lighhouse is just off the bridge-landing.]

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.]

For Fantasy Faire 2017, NeoVictoria Presents a Dark Circus

Fantasy Faire is almost here!

Fantasy Faire is Second Life’s largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts & performers.  It’s two weeks of commerce, special events, music & fundraising in fifteen SIMs created specifically for this event.  Proceeds go to the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” fundraising effort.  Last year’s Fantasy Faire raised more than US$30,000!

This is the NeoVictoria Project’s fourth year sponsoring a region.

We’re thrilled to be reunited with Beq Janus on their fantastical steampunk circus region named “Anansi“.  And we have an exciting roleplay story cycle planned; our schedule is below.  Come and see the NeoVictoria Roleplay Group in action; we welcome you to join in the fun!
