PRESS RELEASE
 For Immediate Release
 20 September 2021

We are Eleven Years Old!

September 2021 marks the NeoVictoria Project’s tenth anniversary.  Over the years, we have transcribed more than two-thousand roleplays to our community website, produced almost one hundred machinimas, sponsored nine 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.   Everyone is invited, and everyone is welcome.  Come and celebrate with us!

Play a victim or play to find a cure!

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.]

About the Featured Picture Image

Henry Fuseli’s “The Nightmare” was created in 1781 and became of the artist’s best known works.  He recreated it on several occasions.  It suggests what the sleeper feels, not what they see.  When planning this SIM-wide, this painting was one of our inspirations.
