Mateys …it wer a great success, this coming-together of scurvy dogs and knife-wielding lasses!  Capt’n Pearse rolled the pirate tunes on to Radio Riel’s airways, and lessoned the crew on their history.  Miss Myomy ran a tight ship, what with all the vote-counting and refusing of bribes.  And those dead what could attend, left some rum for the living!  Until next year,  weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!

Our ParcelAbout NeoVictoria’s Exhibit

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.

The build is based on a plot from our roleplay. Miss Ticka, the proprietress of the tavern, has sent her magic portrait of the Sidhe queen back to Old Earth for servicing.  During transport, negligent portal imps dropped its crate from their dirigible.  It crashed to ground, along with a crate of mirrors and books; now the magic has escaped, causing the land to lift and the mirrors to capture some of the recordings the portrait had made.

Credits:  Fianah Mistwood built the set.  Asil Ares and Crosswired Deanimator created some of the textures.  Fianah Mistwood made “{BHC} The Queens  Mirror” gift.  myomy Resident and Jhaesoph Foxdale made the “NeoVictoria Greeting HUD SL12B Edition FP” gift.

NeoVictoria is Doing the Steam 10 Hunt

It’s a Mini-Hunt with 9 Dreamy Gifts!

Steam: the Dream Hunt Poster
Historical Hunts, Ltd. presents STEAM X.
Steam: The Dream.
1-31 March 2015

The only Victorian Steampunk-themed grid-wide hunt in SecondLife is produced by Historical Hunts.  This is our fifth year contributing and this year we’re stop 95.

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

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

Our skylevel is always out-of-character (OOC), so hunters won’t disrupt the roleplay.

Here’s the list:

  • 2015 Souvenir Calendar
  • Dreaming of Steam Orb
  • Prison Sphere ~ Sidhe Trap
  • NeoVictoria’s Steamy Dreamboat
  • Prison Sphere ~ Nyx Trap
  • NeoVictoria’s Steamy Dreamboat ~ Pirate Edition
  • Steampunk Covered Seat
  • Prison Sphere ~ Loam Trap
  • and the NeoVictoria Toast and Drink HUD Steam X Special Edition with mesh wine glass.

The hunt always begins at the Steampunk Information Centre in Mieville Doyle.  If you’d like to visit NeoVictoria now, here’s the SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/16/128/1003.

NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: 2015 Calendar
Every year, we do a commemorative calendar for the Steam Hunt that fits its theme. This year’s is packed with dreamy images from our Steampunk storyworld.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Dream Orb
This mesmerizing prop contains a simple meditation sit, perfect for the conjurer, dreaming worlds.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Fae Traps
Magical traps to keep the fae at bay; one for the Sidhe, one for the Nyx and one for the Loam. The trick is getting them into the traps …but that is for you to roleplay.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Dream Boat
This charming vessel can roam the land or the seas! Rezz, then sit.
The avatar on the chest at back drives, but there are sits for all, including a tiny sit on the treasure chest.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Pirate Boat
This pirate vessel can roam the land or the seas! Rezz, then sit.
The avatar on the chest at back drives, but there are sits for all, including a tiny sit on the treasure chest.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Seat
In the NeoVictoria storyworld, magic and technology come together to serve the needs of the citizenry. Rather than harnessing the powers of oil or the atom, they have devised a way to capture the essence of a creature (some might call it the spirit or soul) to use as an energy source.
Here in this covered seat, a captive soul within a crystal container is used to make light in the covering above the seat.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Toast HUD
Welcome to the NeoVictoria Steam X Drinking and Toast HUD! This device was initially made as a roleplay aid, but can also be used to easily animate your avatar while holding unscripted drinks!  Includes an unscripted, modifiable mesh wine glass!

Credits: As always, the items were built by members of our community. Thanks to Tarquin Evermore for the boats and the dream orb; to Vic Titanium for the scripts that drive the boats; to QuarkZen for the covered seat; to OhDearMe and Jhaesoph Foxdale for the HUD; to Asil Ares for the traps and calendar; and to Myomy for the mesh wine glass. Special mention to MadMechaMessiah & DarlaDoll for crafting the hints!
