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!
