Report from the 2016 “Talk Like a Pirate” Party

The 2016 “Talk Like a Pirate” Party in the Skyclub in Machinima SIM.

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.

The Party Was Hopping!

Event Description

Mateys …it wer a great success, this coming-together of scurvy dogs and knife-wielding lasses!  Miss  Gabrielle Riel rolled the shanty tunes on Radio Riel’s airways, and brought pirates and scallywags from across the Steamlands to the festooned skyclub in Machinima SIM.  And those what could attend, left some rum for the latecomers!  Until next year,  weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!

The NeoVictoria Project

The NeoVictoria Project is a unique dark-roleplay environment crafted with a steampunk aesthetic. This year’s build is a cinema: the lower level is open so folks who walk by can see information about the kinds of creatures who live in this storyworld, and the upper-level is the cinema itself, streaming five of the many machinima-movies made over the years.

Our Gifts for SLB13

Our Gift for this Year’s Big Hunt!

This year, Tarquin Evermore made some really nifty decorative gears …just perfect for your steampunk lifestyles!  They have resizer scripts and the center is scripted so the texture moves and flashes.  [It’s very dramatic.]  We have then staged at the corners of our build in SLB13 Electrify.  Happy hunting!

NeoVictoria is Doing the Steam 11 Hunt

It’s a Mini-Hunt with Five Gifts Inspired by the Sea!

Realms of the Deep
Steam 11: Realms of the Deep

The only Victorian Steampunk-themed grid-wide hunt in SecondLife is produced by Historical Hunts.  Voted the BEST GRID-WIDE HUNT (STEAM X) and BEST HUNT ORGANIZER in this year’s HUNTIES Awards, this is our sixth year contributing, and this year we’re stop 70.

We always do a mini-hunt: this one may be the most amusing ever!

We have five gifts staged throughout our Visitor’s Center on the skylevel of NeoVictoria SIM.

Our skylevel is always out-of-character (OOC), so hunters need not fear they’ll disrupt the roleplay.

Here’s the list:

  • 2016 Souvenir Calendar
  • Fully-furnished Skybox (or Houseboat)
  • Mer Poser
  • Angler Headlight
  • NPC Attack Fish

The hunt always begins at the Steampunk Information Centre in Mieville Doyle and runs the entire month of March.  However, if you’d like to visit NeoVictoria right now, here’s the SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/16/128/1003.

STEAM11 2016 Calendar
Our commemorative calendar is packed with images of sea and sky from our Steampunk storyworld.
STEAM11_Gift_Skybox
This charming studio is perfect as a skybox or houseboat; its tiny living at its best!
STEAM11_Gift_MerPoser
An undersea poser, perfect for your grotto or shipwreak.
Angler Headlight
An amusing wearable, or a rezzable wall-sconce …you decide!
Attack Fish Rezzer
Got a sunken treasure that needs a guard? This modable object rezzes a dangerous-looking fish when someone walks into it! Perfect addition to any undersea theme.

Credits: As always, the items were built by members of our community. Thanks to QuarkZen for the skybox; to Jhaesoph Foxdale for the fish-trap; to Asil Ares for the calendar & mer-pose; and to MadMechaMessiah for the angler headlight and for crafting the hints!
