The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Bewitched Carnival”

PRESS RELEASE
 For Immediate Release
 5 September 2015

The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Bewitched Carnival”.

Five evenings of non-stop roleplay, celebrating the NeoVictoria Project’s fifth year in Second Life!

This series of roleplay events begins on Monday, 21 September 2015, with a harvest festival that will feature a traveling carnival of the mostly-dead, and a very traditional wickerman.  Everyone is invited to roleplay with us!

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 Jade Kreations Role Play Tool Suite; avatars must wear this to see the roleplay chat.  The item is free and available in our Visitor Center,  various locations on our out-of-character skymall, and the SecondLife Marketplace.

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.]

NeoVictoria is Doing the Steam 10 Hunt

It’s a Mini-Hunt with 9 Dreamy Gifts!

Steam: the Dream Hunt Poster
Historical Hunts, Ltd. presents STEAM X.
Steam: The Dream.
1-31 March 2015

The only Victorian Steampunk-themed grid-wide hunt in SecondLife is produced by Historical Hunts.  This is our fifth year contributing and this year we’re stop 95.

We always do a mini-hunt: this one may be the best one ever!

We have nine gifts staged throughout our Visitor’s Center on the skylevel of NeoVictoria SIM.

Our skylevel is always out-of-character (OOC), so hunters won’t disrupt the roleplay.

Here’s the list:

  • 2015 Souvenir Calendar
  • Dreaming of Steam Orb
  • Prison Sphere ~ Sidhe Trap
  • NeoVictoria’s Steamy Dreamboat
  • Prison Sphere ~ Nyx Trap
  • NeoVictoria’s Steamy Dreamboat ~ Pirate Edition
  • Steampunk Covered Seat
  • Prison Sphere ~ Loam Trap
  • and the NeoVictoria Toast and Drink HUD Steam X Special Edition with mesh wine glass.

The hunt always begins at the Steampunk Information Centre in Mieville Doyle.  If you’d like to visit NeoVictoria now, here’s the SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/16/128/1003.

NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: 2015 Calendar
Every year, we do a commemorative calendar for the Steam Hunt that fits its theme. This year’s is packed with dreamy images from our Steampunk storyworld.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Dream Orb
This mesmerizing prop contains a simple meditation sit, perfect for the conjurer, dreaming worlds.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Fae Traps
Magical traps to keep the fae at bay; one for the Sidhe, one for the Nyx and one for the Loam. The trick is getting them into the traps …but that is for you to roleplay.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Dream Boat
This charming vessel can roam the land or the seas! Rezz, then sit.
The avatar on the chest at back drives, but there are sits for all, including a tiny sit on the treasure chest.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Pirate Boat
This pirate vessel can roam the land or the seas! Rezz, then sit.
The avatar on the chest at back drives, but there are sits for all, including a tiny sit on the treasure chest.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Seat
In the NeoVictoria storyworld, magic and technology come together to serve the needs of the citizenry. Rather than harnessing the powers of oil or the atom, they have devised a way to capture the essence of a creature (some might call it the spirit or soul) to use as an energy source.
Here in this covered seat, a captive soul within a crystal container is used to make light in the covering above the seat.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Toast HUD
Welcome to the NeoVictoria Steam X Drinking and Toast HUD! This device was initially made as a roleplay aid, but can also be used to easily animate your avatar while holding unscripted drinks!  Includes an unscripted, modifiable mesh wine glass!

Credits: As always, the items were built by members of our community. Thanks to Tarquin Evermore for the boats and the dream orb; to Vic Titanium for the scripts that drive the boats; to QuarkZen for the covered seat; to OhDearMe and Jhaesoph Foxdale for the HUD; to Asil Ares for the traps and calendar; and to Myomy for the mesh wine glass. Special mention to MadMechaMessiah & DarlaDoll for crafting the hints!

The Public Website

Managing an online presence is never static.  Over the years, we’ve done some major redesigns, including separating our private community site from our public Internet presence.  We had been using an aggregator for the public site, but found it lacked the dynamism the project required, so last year, we began building this new public website using the WordPress platform.

We’ve published enough information now, that it’s ready to represent! [There’s still lots that need to be added, like all the race information and planet descriptions and …the list goes on, but we won’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good, so please follow us, if you want alerts.]

Flavors Site
Goodbye Flavors.me; it was nice to know ya!

As of this writing, our public website URL of www.neovictoria.net is pointing to this WordPress site [http://neovictoria.tv/].  The Flavors site [http://neovictoria.flavors.me/] will sunset in March.
