Halloween Extravaganza 11 (OOC)

In association with Radio Nightingale, NeoVictoria is having a Halloween Costume bash to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Radio Nightingale will broadcast the event over their main channel and we’ll have a costume party in the NeoVictoria Skyclub with a steampunk theme.  Dress your avatar in scary Steampunk, Victorian, Mecha, or Goth style and join us in Machinima SIM.

Bonfire Night Masquerade 8 (IC)

5 November
To celebrate the 533rd 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 6 (IC)

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.

Yuletide Ball 8 (IC)

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!
