a Clockwerk Gala to Honor the Veterans of the Sidhe Empire

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

This Tuesday, we have an exciting event scheduled: our first ever clockwerk ball!

Time: Tuesday, 11 November 2014 from 6pm to 9pm, SL-time
Location: Cathedral of Air & Darkness, NeoLondon [NeoVictoria SIM]
Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)
Organized By: Kitiarafox & Fianah Mistwood

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 nave of the great Cathedral.  All clockwerks are welcome.  Miss Tikta and Miss Kit are hosting, with all proceeds going to the local veteran’s association. [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 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.]

Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)

Our in-character event promises to be great fun, with characters in masks and costumes, with an unveiling at Midnight (9 PM, SL-time) and fireworks!

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.

About The NeoVictoria Project: NeoVictoria is a unique dark roleplay platform that brings creative people together in a supportive and collaborative environment.  Built with a Steampunk aesthetic, the goal of The NeoVictoria Project is to create a virtuous circle where roleplay becomes filmed story.  Website: http://www.neovictoria.net.  Contact for NeoVictoria: Asil Ares.

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
