Please join us, the NeoVictoria Roleplay Group, for this very special series of roleplay events, produced exclusively for Fantasy Faire 2016.  Beginning on Thursday, 21 April in NeoVictoria SIM, we’ll  bring our story of duty and heroism to the Fairelands on Friday, 22 April, when our intrepid band of roleplayers land in the  Elven city of Serenity!

Roleplayers from all the Fairelands are encouraged to join us!

Event Description

Thousands of years past, a sidhe failed in their duty and let a nameless terror into the worlds.  It cost them their life, but not their soul.  That was put into a mechanical marvel, and so began their long service as a sentinel against the darkness.

But after so long, their mechanical body has begun to fail and that nameless evil escapes its bonds.  The automaton sends word to the Sidhe Empire for assistance.

Will help arrive in time?

Fantasy Faire 2016

For the third year in a row, the NeoVictoria Project is proud to sponsor a SIM for Fantasy Faire.  This year, we’re sponsoring the Serenity SIM.

Built by Kaelis Ember and Aikeo Rieko, it promises to be an elvish fantasy.  “They say there are one thousand steps to the top of Serenity, an ancient city, every nook and cranny carved to perfection, smooth curves, beautiful terraces, stunning waterfalls, latticed windows. Built by ageless hands so many moons ago, they also say that those who ascend to the top of the city will discover something more valuable than gold, the knowledge we’re not alone in our fights.”

FFaire2016

A Fantasy Faire Thank You

Poster for White Wedding
Our roleplay cycle for Fantasy Faire 2015

FantasyFaire2015 ended last week: it raised L$7,910,480 (US$31,642)  for Relay-For-Life and the fight against cancer.  It did that because people cared enough to volunteer their time to create content that drew players from all of Second Life into the SIMs.  

This year, NeoVictoria sponsored the Aurora SIM and produced another great roleplay cycle.  We’re taking a moment to publicly thank the people in our community who worked so hard, over a very short time, to make “White Wedding” an overwhelming success!

  • Studio Yue stayed up late too many nights, making the machinimas that tracked our roleplay in almost real-time.  Watch all of them here.
  • MadMechaMessiah Resident played multiple characters, including the Groom, often at the same time.  Their final roleplay as Augustus Whitehill was simply amazing!
  • Akasha Electricteeth developed the character of the Bride, roleplaying most of its scenes, and found the amazing skeleton-avatar we used for it!  
  • myomy Resident created a special edition of the NeoLondon Times, so we had an in-character prop to give to faire-goers during our time in Aurora.  If you haven’t read it, here’s the link.
  • Tarquin Evermore built a charming steampunk-airship as our Relay-for-Life gift.
  • Certified Lunasea rebuilt the Second Life wiki’s chat-bot script, so we had a working chat-bot of the Bride to entertain visitors when we weren’t roleplaying in Aurora SIM.  
  • Treyhem Whitfield rezzed their steampunk-airship, the Winged Mare, so we had a great set-piece for our characters to use as their transportation to and from the fairelands.
  • Fianah Mistwood and myomy Resident kept our events on track by keeping the roleplay order organized in the NeoVictoria Group chat; Tafiyah Ehret helped with roleplay transcripts; and Jhaesoph Foxdale was our GM at the fairelands.  

And, all of these players joined in the roleplays, that became the movies, that was “White Wedding“:

  • AgnusAleron Resident as Agnus Aleron;
  • Akasha Electricteeth as Akasha and Nourie Hadig;
  • AlexisKattalakys Resident as Alexis Kattalakys;
  • AlyssTheMenace Resident as Nourie Hadig;
  • Asil Ares as PortaImp FirstClass WhiteSmoke;
  • Asil Karu as herself and Cerridwen~in~chains;
  • Argus Steamweaver as themselves;
  • DarlaDoll Resident as Darla;
  • Crispin Sturges as Piotor;
  • Fianah Mistwood as Miss Tickta;
  • GhostFacedKiller Resident as Augustus Whitehill;
  • Jhaesoph Foxdale as himself;
  • Lancelot Mint as himself;
  • MadMechaMessiah Resident as Leander Hatfield;
  • myomy Resident as Myomy Ohmai;
  • NataliaDArtigo Resident as Natalia;
  • OhDearMe Resident as OhDearMe Ohmai;
  • peacelynxtree Resident as Lynx the Half-Pooka and Adara;
  • QuarkZen Resident as Zen Katria;
  • Snowjob Resident as Pits;
  • Tafiyah Ehret as Keke and Corell;  
  • Tarquin Evermore as Samuel Bellamy and a stray dog.
  • Treyhem Whitfield as Treyhem Sleipnerson;
  • ValentineAdler Resident as Valentine ‘Val’ Adler;
  • and Xiuhcohtl Balazic as Anya “Ginger” Greer.

Congratulations everyone for a job well done; you make The NeoVictoria Project one of the best roleplay environment in Second Life!
