Your Invitation to Our Seventh Clockwerk Gala

The NeoVictoria Project Presents Our Seventh Clockwerk Gala

Clockwerk Gala
Join us at 3 PM, SL-time

An afternoon of roleplay, celebrating the Sidhe empire’s clockwerk warriors!

Dress your avatar in Steampunk-style, pick up an NRT HUD in the Visitor Center, and join us in the tavern for an afternoon of roleplay.  Excellent opportunity for new players!

Time: Thursday, 11 November 2021 from 3pm to 5pm, SL-time
Location: Victoria Inn & Tavern, NeoLondon [NeoVictoria SIM]
Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)
SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/134/203/756

Background on the Clockwerk Balls

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; it’s held in Buckingham Slithen and all the Court attends.  Here the most valiant of the year’s warriors are awarded the Sidhe Cross.

The NeoLondoners are planning one evening of celebration, in the Victoria Inn and Tavern.   All clockwerks are welcome. All proceeds going to the local widows and orphans fund. [This is roleplay; no actual money is being raised.]

In the Sidhe Empire we find three kinds of mecha.

  • Augments (living creatures with clockwerk parts),
  • Automatons (clockwerk dolls housing conscious souls),
  • and Strand Constructs (golems of pure machine consciousness).

To learn more about how to play a clockwerk character in the Neo’Verse, read the excerpt on the Cyborg Concordance on this site and join in the fun!

About the Roleplay: 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 NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool ; 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.]

For Fantasy Faire 2020, NeoVictoria Presents A Meet-And-Greet At Auxentios’ Pass

Fantasy Faire is almost here!

Fantasy Faire is Second Life’s largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts and performers.  It is eighteen day of commerce, special events, music and  fundraising in sixteen SIMs created specifically for this event.  Proceeds go to the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” fundraising effort. Last year’s Fantasy Faire raised more than US$60,000!
