The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Wild Hunt”

PRESS RELEASE
 For Immediate Release
 20 September 2019

The NeoVictoria Project presents “The Wild Hunt”.

Four days of non-stop roleplay, celebrating the NeoVictoria Project’s seventh year in Second Life!

This series of roleplay events begins on Thursday, 20 September 2018, with the re-appearance of the mysterious Greenman.   Everyone is invited to roleplay with us!

SLUrl:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/71/73/3003

[OR from the Visitor’s Center, use the scripted teleport for the Solstice Fairground.]

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 characters may act in aggressive, predatory, criminal and/or plain uncomfortable ways.

We use a simple dice-based wearable HUD called the NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool; avatars must wear this to see the roleplay chat.  The item is free and available in our Visitor Center and various locations on our out-of-character skymall.

Players don’t have to be a member of our group to roleplay here; we do 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.]

An evening of non-stop roleplay, marking the NeoVictoria Project’s Fourth Guy Fawkes Celebration!

This Saturday we have a very special event scheduled: our fourth ever Guy Fawkes Day celebration! To keep the event in-character (I/C), we’ve given the familiar tale a slight retelling, to better fit the Neo-verse.

Time: Saturday, 5 November 2016 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, SL-time
Location: Victoria Tavern [NeoVictoria SIM]
Event Type: in-character party (known, and unknown, characters welcome)
Organized By: Lucinda Jane Strathmore Resident
DJ: Lilith Vinciolo

Our in-character event promises to be great fun, with characters in masks and costumes, the fabulous Lilith spinning tunes, and an unveiling at 11:30 PM (8:30 PM, SL-time) with fireworks!

The Guy at the Table
Forgetting the mask covering the face, Ormolu aims a friendly smile at him. “Is the wine a good vintage, sir? And would you recommend the cake or the little heart pastries?”

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.
