The NeoVictoria Project presents “Wild Hunt for a Bad Robot”

PRESS RELEASE
 For Immediate Release
 21 September 2014

The NeoVictoria Project presents “Wild Hunt for a Bad Robot”.

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

This series of roleplay events begin on Monday, 22 September 2014, with a call-to-arms that all NeoVictorians find, subdue and bring to justice mad Professor Timmon’s creation.  We conclude with a celebratory party on Friday, 26 September 2014.

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 that characters often 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 roleplay chat.  The item is free and available in the out-of-character skymall.

Players do not have to be a member of our group to roleplay here; we 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.]

A bit about our storyworld:  in the Neo’Verse, the Sidhe (fae) never faded, but worked with … some would say ruled over …their human charges until the Sidhe Empire spanned the known universe.  So many races exist: faeries, demons and clockwerk constructs (powered by gears and magic), humans, vampires, werebeasts and celestials.  All held against the ravages of time by magic, intrigue and human ingenuity.

Planet NeoVictoria (where our characters play) is a small planet, nestled in the VICO III galaxy, its citizenry cling to the land and sky, for its vast oceans are home to forces that do not heed the crown. But some are loyal to the Sidhe queen who sits on her throne billions of light-years away. Alexandrina Victoria Tuatha Dé Danann, Queen of Earth, Empress of the Void: one tap of her tiny foot on the Stone of Scone sets the worlds to shake. It’s 2130 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years

Celestials you will find and other servants of the Light. But always, there is the balance. So gentle traveler, as you walk the streets of NeoLondon, be wary …for the sky is dark and the fair queen is far away.
