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!

To learn more about this year’s hunt, visit the official SLB 13 website; here’s the link.  And, if you see Rosamoo Mendelsohn in-world, give them a hug and shout-out, ’cause producing a hunt this big is a tremendous labor of love.  Thanks, Rosamoo!

When you see this texture in-world, it means that parcel is participating in the hunt.

Happy 13th Birthday, Second Life!

About NeoVictoria’s Exhibit

This year our build is a Steampunk-styled cinema, the lower level is open so folks who walk by can see information about the kinds of creatures who live in our storyworld, and the upper-level is the cinema itself, streaming five of the many machinima-movies we’ve made over the years.

The NeoVictoria Project, with its live action simulation on the Second Life platform, is a unique dark roleplay environment crafted with a Steampunk aesthetic. The goal of the project is to create a self-sustaining cycle where roleplay becomes filmed story.

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!
