PRESS RELEASE
 For Immediate Release
 20 September 2019

The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Wild Hunt”.

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

This series of roleplay events begins on Thursday, 20 September 2018, with the re-appearance of the mysterious Greenman.   Everyone is invited to roleplay with us!

SLUrl:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/71/73/3003

[OR from the Visitor’s Center, use the scripted teleport for the Solstice Fairground.]

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.]
