It’s good to have an out-of-character space to hang out, when players want to plot OOCly or just have fun. Our OOC SkyClub on the Machinima SIM is where we host:
~ Fight Clubs
~ Roleplay Classes
~ OOC Parties and Events
~ Sky Pirate Radio, our semi-I/C “radio station”.
The first round of judging will be by the NeoVictoria community via the Internet. We’ll present the top 15 images in-world for a final vote to determine the twelve winners. In-world voting will be from 9 January through 16 January 2015 and will be located in the NeoVictoria SkyClub in Machinima SIM. Winners will be announced on 20 January at a special party in the SkyClub.
About the Project
About The NeoVictoria Project: NeoVictoria is a unique dark roleplay platform that brings creative people together in a supportive and collaborative environment. Built with a Steampunk aesthetic, the goal of The NeoVictoria Project is to create a virtuous circle where roleplay becomes filmed story. Website: http://www.neovictoria.net. Contact for NeoVictoria: Asil Ares.
About the Roleplay: 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 that characters often act in aggressive, predatory, criminal and/or plain uncomfortable ways. We use a simple dice-based wearable HUD called the Jade Kreations Role Play Tool Suite; avatars must wear this to see roleplay chat. The item is free and available in the out-of-character skymall.
Players do not have to be a member of our group to roleplay here; we 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.]
About Our Storyworld: in the Neo’Verse, the Sidhe (fae) never faded, but worked with … some would say ruled over …their human charges until the Sidhe Empire spanned the known universe. So many races exist: faeries, demons and clockwerk constructs (powered by gears and magic), humans, vampires, werebeasts and celestials. All held against the ravages of time by magic, intrigue and human ingenuity.
Planet NeoVictoria (where our characters play) is a small planet, nestled in the VICO III galaxy, its citizenry cling to the land and sky, for its vast oceans are home to forces that do not heed the crown. But some are loyal to the Sidhe queen who sits on her throne billions of light-years away. Alexandrina Victoria Tuatha Dé Danann, Queen of Earth, Empress of the Void: one tap of her tiny foot on the Stone of Scone sets the worlds to shake. It’s 2130 and Pax Britannica has held sway for more than three thousand years.
We had a really fun Halloween costume bash Friday night (31 October) to celebrate one of our favorite real life holidays. Replete with live DJs and costume competitions, it was three hours of fun and tunes at the skyclub in Machinima SIM.
