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
SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/144/218/28

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.

The Vampire's Kiss
A Child of Hel creates a twice-born thought the gift of their blood.

Background on the Yuletide in the Sidhe Empire

In the modern era, the Yuletide is a time for celebration; feasts are held and gifts are made.  Throughout the Empire, the great families vie to hold spectacular events in their slithens, and cease-fires are called in any war-time theaters.

Scholars trace this time back to the Wild Hunts of old; these ghostly processions in the winter sky were led by the (dead) god Odin.  In life, he led his court and the sidhe warriors on hunts during the dark times, seeking to find and undo any evils the demon-folk and frost giants may have wrote.  On Old Earth, the Yuletide lasts a fortnight and begins on the Winter solstice, the longest night of the year.

This time of year sees an increase in supernatural activities, with the vampires being particularly sensitive to the change-of-season.  Those prone to melancholia are most vulnerable, and it is considered unlucky to make a twice-born during this time, as this is feared to result in a the creation of a draugr.

To learn more about the vampires of the Sidhe empire, read The Vampire Concordance.

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 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.]

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.  Miss Ala Vivica is hosting, with all proceeds going to the local widows and orphans fund. [This is roleplay; no actual money is being raised.]  We’ll have ‘live’ music, with Liℓith Viиcioℓo spinning tunes.

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!
