    Sunday, 5 November
    To celebrate the 529th anniversary of Guy Fawkes Day, the city of NeoLondon plans a gala event.   Mr. Fawkes was a famous shapeshifter who used his skills to amass gunpowder (and it was rumored there were other fell objects) beneath the parliament building in 1605.  In imitation of Guy, don masks, change your shape and hair, disguise your voice (or rp style) and join in the frivolity.
  • Clockwerk Gala 4 (IC)
    Saturday, 11 November
    Often sponsored by local veteran associations, “Clockwerk Galas” are very popular affairs, serving as fund-raisers and recruitment.  The most amazing is held every Fall in Old London on Old Earth, it runs a fortnight with the oldest houses vying to raise the most money with fantastical parties and auctions.  The “Royal Clockwerk Ball” closes the festivities; its held in Buckingham Slithen and all the Court attends.  Here the most valiant of the year’s warriors are awarded the Sidhe Cross.
  • 2017 Photo Contest (OOC)

  • Yuletide Ball 4 (IC)
    Thursday, 21 December
    Our traditional end-of-year IC celebration.  As ever, tied to the actual Winter solstice!

Lots of roleplay happens that’s not planned, or only planned a week in advance, so join our in-world group or public announcer for as-it-happens alerts!

An evening of non-stop roleplay, marking the NeoVictoria Project’s Fourth Guy Fawkes Celebration!

This Saturday we have a very special event scheduled: our fourth ever Guy Fawkes Day celebration! To keep the event in-character (I/C), we’ve given the familiar tale a slight retelling, to better fit the Neo-verse.

Time: Saturday, 5 November 2016 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, SL-time
Location: Victoria Tavern [NeoVictoria SIM]
Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)
Organized By: Lucinda Jane Strathmore Resident
DJ: Lilith Vinciolo

Our in-character event promises to be great fun, with characters in masks and costumes, the fabulous Lilith spinning tunes, and an unveiling at 11:30 PM (8:30 PM, SL-time) with fireworks!

The Guy at the Table
Forgetting the mask covering the face, Ormolu aims a friendly smile at him. “Is the wine a good vintage, sir? And would you recommend the cake or the little heart pastries?”

If you’d like to dress your character like the Guy, the SL marketplace has some very affordable costumes on sale:

We’re inviting new players to this event and we’re hoping to get a large crowd of regulars together for some IC fun.
